Announcing the Campaign to Help a Struggling Law Student Pay His Tuition



Help Sandler Ernst pay his tuition and stay out of debt

Atlanta, GA – January 28, 2015 – In January, young Sandler Ernst received a 162 on the December LSAT (85th percentile). All of a sudden,  doors opened up for Sandler. However, he came across a harsh reality. He might not be able qualify for the massive student loans that would be needed in order to pay for law school. Sandler has been forced to put approximately 2,900 dollars on several credit cards just to be able to live. Recently, Sandler was fortunate to have landed a job as a legal assistant. However, this position does not make nearly enough to settle the debt by the time Sandler would need to apply for loans. Due to this income, it will take years to pay back. Anything will help.

Sandler plans to be an Adoption attorney when he graduates law school. As an adopted child, Sandler feels that it is important to provide others the same opportunities that were provided to him. Good and ethical adoption attorneys help society by placing babies with loving families.

By helping to pay of his debt, you will allow Sandler to pursue his goal of making the world a better place.

As indicated below, Sandler Ernst is a hard-working student who has a history of being an exceptional study with lofty goals after graduation.

7 Key Things to Know About Pre-Purchase Home Inspections



7 Key Things to Know About Pre-Purchase Home Inspections
Obtaining a home inspection is an important part of the process of purchasing a house. It arms you with the knowledge you need to determine whether or not you wish to purchase the home. The inspection is performed by professionals trained in residential construction codes as it relates to major components and systems of the house. Your home inspector will give you an expert opinion about the structural integrity as well as the condition of major working systems such as plumbing, heating, and the electrical systems of the house based upon a visual examination. He will inform you about the major defects in the home so that you don’t have any unpleasant surprises. If the house needs a lot of repairs and replacements, you will incur high costs on yourself after moving in. Being aware of the condition of the home you are considering well in advance will help you make a better decision.
Why Would I Need a Home Inspection Before I Buy a House?
Purchasing a home is the single largest investment most Americans will make. So they must proceed carefully so that their hard-earned money is spent at the right place. A professional home inspection helps you become an informed buyer capable of making intelligent choices.
What Does a Home Inspector Look For?
“The purpose of a home inspection is to look for material defects of a property—things that are unsafe, not working, or that create a hazard,” according to Kurt Salomon, president of the American Society of Home Inspectors and an inspector based in Salt Lake City. A home inspector gives you the big picture analysis of the house. He mainly points out the major problems in the house associated with structural soundness and crucial systems. As a home buyer, you definitely expect a lot from a home inspector but the reality is that their job is limited and they can’t look into everything and predict future complications.
What Can I Expect from a Pre-Purchase Home Inspection?
The job of a home inspector is primarily to give you the big picture analysis of the house.  His main focus is to detect the issues related with the structure's integrity and the working of the major systems of the house. Home inspectors don’t do any sort of destructive testing and you can’t expect them to give you the details of every nail, wire and pipe in the house. Their inspections are visual, so if anything is hiding out of site they will not be able to detect it.
The report prepared by them is supposed to be taken as an overall view about the house and shouldn’t be taken as a guarantee that major systems of the house won't ever need repair. As it is obvious that every house needs regular maintenance to stay in good condition, you must keep in mind that no house is perfect and there might be some issues beyond your home inspector’s report.
What Should I Consider Before Hiring a Home Inspector?
Though home buyers expect a lot from home inspectors, the fact is that their job is limited. As stated earlier, they can’t furnish you the details of every little thing in the house. So it is recommended that you take care of certain things yourself by being an alert and informed buyer. By doing so you can be more assured of the safety and desired working of the crucial systems of the house. Also, it will save you from incurring heavy costs resulting from unexpected expenditures post-purchase. When you consider hiring a professional home inspector, you are advised to ask him certain questions such as how much experience he has in the field of home inspection, whether he has any expertise in child safety, environmental-friendliness or any other issue relevant to you and your family. For instance, when you are considering a home with a swimming pool, the home inspector should have expertise in pool safety.
Look For the Hazards.
It is recommended to identify common hazards yourself before you move into a house. Check whether the space between railings is narrow or wide enough for babies to crawl and fall through. Also make sure that the gates enclosing the backyard pool are at least six feet tall so that they remain inaccessible to children.  Take care to protect yourself and your family against environmental toxins such as lead paint, asbestos, and radon, which are dangerous for the health of your family and can be costly to remove. If you are alert about such issues, you can ask the seller to pay fully or partially for the abatement or removal of such toxins.  Also check whether the electrical systems of the house are working properly or need any repairs or replacements.  If you find any upgrades are necessary for the same, again ask the seller to get them done or split the costs with you.
Home Inspectors May Customize the Checklist According to the Case.
A home inspector may customize his checklist depending upon the specific needs of a buyer. For example, if a couple with young children is purchasing the house, the home inspector may be more attentive to associated safety issues. On the other hand, in the case of the couple with no children, child safety issues may not be significant and home inspector will likely not bring it to the buyers’ notice. Also, if there is a particular area that you are especially concerned with, like how old the electrical system is, you can ask him to pay special attention to that system. Do bear in mind, however, that the checklist the inspector has developed for pre-purchase home inspections has years of experience and some government oversight behind it.
What Options are there after the Home Inspection?
 After the inspection is complete and the report handed over to you, you can assess your options. If you find the report satisfactory, you can go ahead with the purchase. If you find there are certain issues which need to be addressed, you can discuss the same with the seller and resolve them . Perhaps you can get the seller to fix the issues prior to purchase, or negotiate the asking price of the home down to cover the cost.  And at last, if the report is not satisfactory and you feel the deal is not worth your hard-earned money, opt out of it.

Why New Zealand is considered an economic success story and a safe haven for investors



Unlike many larger OECD countries, New Zealand did not suffer the severe recession that hit most of its peers.  Many investors and others wondered why and this was largely due to the strict banking and lending standards that New Zealand has in place. This regulatory environment meant that the subprime loan market, which caused the recession, didn't affect the country, since New Zealand had virtually no subprime market to begin with. When a country’s banks are not making risky loans, the effects from an economic slowdown are not nearly so severe as they inevitably must be in other countries that do have an unsound subprime loan market.

New Zealand enjoys other financial advantages from which its investors profit.  The economy of the country is diverse.  Moreover, its central government has successfully positioned its economy as a global leader amongst smaller nations.  In the currency exchange market, this has constantly held true. New Zealand’s comparative advantage is maintained, even as the U.S. economy improves.  Likewise, the currency has gained as well and in fact, the currency of New Zealand is considered the  second best performer against the U.S. dollar among 16 major peers tracked by Bloomberg in 2014, with gains approaching 4%: unlike others, such as Canada, which suffered the biggest loss at -3.6%.

Recently, New Zealand’s dollar has further benefited from a Central Bank that in 2014 became the first in the developed world to raise interest rates since 2011.  At the same time, an economic revival is currently in progress, boosting its currency.  It is also noteworthy that New Zealand’s currency has been unaffected by plummeting oil prices.  That is largely due to the fortunate fact that the country is not nearly as commodity-dependent and resource-reliant as are so many others.

The land of the Kiwi has a vibrant export economy – dairy production being its flagship export commodity. The developing world has a thirst for increased dairy usage and New Zealand’s economy will be the beneficiary of this for many years to come. New Zealand is also very stable politically, as well as financially, and it enjoys one of the highest standards of living of any OECD country. There is very little corruption and both ruling parties are centrist in ideology.   Thus, no wild policy swings can be expected if the government changes.

According to Luigi Wewege, CEO of boutique Auckland, New Zealand investment firm Vivier & Co: "New Zealand not only offers investors a secure place to deposit their money but also financial returns that far exceed what’s available in most Western countries.” Luigi adds that: “Unsurprisingly, we’ve seen a global uptake in investors who want to enjoy the attractive rates New Zealand offers, without undue exposure to exchange rate risk."

Due to New Zealand’s relative close proximity to Asia, too, it has long been considered a safe haven for investors from Asia’s developed countries, particularly China and Japan. These investors are also attracted to the country’s lifestyle, with its good schools, low crime rate and clean environment.  New Zealand in turn counts China as its largest export market, and speculation is rife that policy- makers there will take emergency steps to stimulate the struggling Chinese economy and in so doing give a further boost to New Zealand’s strong dollar.

New Zealand’s economic success story offers investors peace of mind, knowing that they can invest safely, and with high confidence in their yield outpacing that of comparable investments virtually anywhere else in the world.

The Importance of Diversification

Diversification is the key to successful investing. All successful investors build portfolios that are widely diversified

“Don’t put all of your eggs in one basket!” You’ve probably heard that over and over again throughout your life…and when it comes to investing, it is very true. Diversification is the key to successful investing. All successful investors build portfolios that are widely diversified, and you should too!

Diversifying your investments might include purchasing various stocks in many different industries. It may include purchasing bonds, investing in money market accounts, or even in some real property. The key is to invest in several different areas – not just one.

Over time, research has shown that investors who have diversified portfolios usually see more consistent and stable returns on their investments than those who just invest in one thing. By investing in several different markets, you will actually be at less risk also.

For instance, if you have invested all of your money in one stock, and that stock takes a significant plunge, you will most likely find that you have lost all of your money. On the other hand, if you have invested in ten different stocks, and nine are doing well while one plunges, you are still in reasonably good shape.

A good diversification will usually include stocks, bonds, real property, and cash. It may take time to diversify your portfolio. Depending on how much you have to initially invest, you may have to start with one type of investment, and invest in other areas as time goes by.

This is okay, but if you can divide your initial investment funds among various types of investments, you will find that you have a lower risk of losing your money, and over time, you will see better returns.

Experts also suggest that you spread your investment money evenly among your investments. In other words, if you start with $100,000 to invest, invest $25,000 in stocks, $25,000 in real property, $25,000 in bonds, and put $25,000 in an interest bearing savings account.

CEO of Vivier & Co, Luigi Wewege believes New Zealand’s economic growth represents a massive opportunity for investors in 2015






The start of the year is a great time for all investors to consider whether their current investment mix is still suitable – after reviewing their circumstances and any changes that may be needed for future planning.

Investors sometimes retain portfolios they haven’t reviewed for a number of years. Yes, decisions were appropriate when first put in place. But perhaps personal situations have changed. For instance, an inheritance may have been received, which could have an impact on retirement planning. Perhaps a relationship break-up has significantly reduced overall assets. Or maybe the world economic outlook has led to better opportunities. Any number of matters could have changed since you last reviewed your portfolio. These could significantly affect your time-frame - or indeed your goals.

With an excellent track record in handling past financial crises, New Zealand is a safe haven for investments. Although highly regulated, it has some of the most reliable economic and fiscal policies in the world. When coupled to some of the highest interest rates amongst developed nations, it’s little wonder that the country has a reputation as the jurisdiction of choice for investors.

New Zealand’s economy grew by 3.4% last year. That was the largest increase in ten years and - according to analysts - the country promises even more growth this year, when the economy is expected to grow by a full 4%. Moreover, New Zealand is expected to be enjoying its first budget surplus in seven years, a remarkable situation, compared with other countries.

New Zealand’s favourable position is widely expected to lead to major tax reductions for low and middle income earners, amounting by 2017 to NZ$1.5 billion, together with a prudently controlled debt and a growing economy. It is undoubtedly New Zealand’s excellent economic policies that have taken overall business confidence index to a recent high of 30.4. With current fiscal policies likely to continue in the same successful fashion, they indicate a welcome opportunity for the investment community. Shouldn’t that include you?

Amongst those taking most advantage of the country's positive business environment is the financial sector. It’s already becoming one of the most attractive of all for investment. The NZX50 was up 17.0 per cent last year, a stellar performance, against a 16.5 per cent increase in 2013 and 24.2 per cent in the bumper year before that.

Over the last decade, the New Zealand market has delivered an average annual return of no less than 6.7 per cent. However, the last three years have been exceptional. In 2015, investors remaining alive to the opportunities should expect the same outstanding returns.

Wall Street Guru “2015 Could Be A Killer Year For Stock Market”



Details :
Brisbane, Queensland - Australia
Denny Smith
61412825791

Press release :

Wall Street Guru “2015 Could Be A Killer Year For Stock Market”

Chip Smith, A Leading financial Market Analyst from http://sentiment-trader.blogspot.com says factors like cheaper oil, low interest rates and inflation could drive markets up by 10 percent this year. It certainly hasnt started that way, but things do have a way of working out like they did last year when the market took a dive in January only to be followed by months of rallying. All it will take is some good news, which right now is lower oil, higher company earnings, and lower inflation.

With Interest rates being suppressed chip said 2015 could be “A Killer year from equities and the stock market” its the perfect excuse for investors and institutes to gravitate towards stocks with good yeilds with good annual profits. This is exactly what happened in 2014 and could repeat again this year

The S&P 500 is currently trading at 2014 or 3.5% down from the highs of last year. The question on the lips of many investors right now is this just a dip before higher prices, or is this the start of a crash or something even more sinister. What the average investor is not thinking about is that since 2009 the stock market has nearly tripled. Not only did it recover from the 2008 devastating financial GFC crash, but its has gone even higher, and then some. This is a move not seen since 1920’s right before a major market meltdown wiped off about 80% of its value in just a few days.

Chip today told his members “There are no guarantees, but we have lots of data to go off, and some very interesting patterns are starting to rear their heads, both technically and fundamentally” Basically hinting that these patterns only occur before major movements on the market.

Chip has done well over the years and uses a contrarian approach to trading the stock market and reached out to his investors today to explain what is going on. He accurately predicted the 2008 stock market crash 3 months before it happened. Last week he gave some of his knowlege and longer term projections and predictions at his blog - http://sentiment-trader.blogspot.com.au/p/vip-elite-group-trial.html  where he gave his 3 secrets to trading a bull market, that we seem to be in right now. He also hinted at






why investors should be careful in 2015. There is much talk about the Federal Reserve and their ability to start raising interest rates in 2015. But at this stage, they keep bluffing, Janet Yellen has not done anything, or even hinted that this will be a mandatory move. “Right now it is nothing more than chinese whispers”. Chip said.


The S&P 500 finally pierced 2040 on Monday, a level Chip has been talking about for months. Many laughed at his prediction, but now after hitting 2040 today most people are stunned and amazed. Chip
said today “As long as the central banks remain accommodative we think that will not really put much pressure on the market!” You can see his latest predictions here => 
 
We will get some important macro data points this week: durable goods, the second revision to second-quarter GDP, capital goods, Case Shiller and the Richmond Fed Survey. But remember, volumes are low, so moves can be exaggerated
— the real tone and sense of the latest move will be re-visited in early September.

Most people are not in tune with the market right now, and most think that a crash is due, because the market has gone up too high in the last few years. Chip was quoted as saying “Bull markets do not just decide to stop one day, or in a week, and then crash to ground zero. The current bull market is no different and there is a ways to go yet, in my opinion”

Chips studies and recommendations are said to be the best around, as he has a select criteria and a secret strategy. This gives him the a leading edge and ability to predict market movements before they happen, and his track record he seems to be a man who knows what he is talking about, as he has gained much media attention and also been sort after by many wall street traders, highly elite investors and fortune 500 companies for his services in the last several years.

Chip has a fantastic track record and normally charges $7000 USD fees for his training, however he has opened his private VIP trading network for the next 7 days, FREE OF CHARGE at http://sentiment-trader.blogspot.com.au/p/vip-elite-group-trial.html where Chip shows investors what the big guys on wall street are looking at and why they are always profitable.

13th Enlightment Films Announces the DECEPTION Horror Feature Film



Trapped in the city with no way out they fight and try to escape as they uncover the horrific truth behind the government’s plans.

Reading, PA  – January 13, 2015 – DECEPTION Is based in the year 2016 when a small city in Pennsylvania has reached a financial crisis. Businesses are going bankrupt, schools and malls are closing down, the crime rate is at its highest and the city is on the verge of a great depopulation. Homeland security has built a massive wall around Reading, PA and surrounding counties. The residents of the areas are told the wall was built to protect the people from a natural disaster that's soon to occur. A group of friends soon realize after a series of unexplainable explosions and hospitals reaching maximum capacity that they are being deceived by the government. Before they can take action the city is terrorized by mutated flesh eating humans. Trapped in the city with no way out they fight and try to escape as they uncover the horrific truth behind the government’s plans.

13th Enlightment Films recently finished writing their first screenplay DECEPTION and they are ready to take it to the next level of filming their first independent film! It makes them both nervous and excited to know that they will be shooting their first major independent film in two months. Their goal is to raise $20,000 until March 25 2015. This money will allow them to cover costs of location permits/fees as well as transportation, food for cast and crew, and promotion and advertising. While they are able to come up with some of the money by themselves, they are not currently working due to a heavy schedule. With no constant source of income it has been difficult to collect enough money to fully finance this film.

About 13th Enlightment Films

13th Enlightment Films is an independent production company that started on May 6th 2014. Our team works fulltime creating online content. We are currently working on designing for our t-shirt brand and producing with other companies and artists. As emerging actors/actresses and filmmakers we hope to continue to improve our craft grow as a company and reach people positively with our work.

The power inherent in the number 13 is neither ''good'' nor ''bad''. Power is just energy untill utilized. Its power is one of the reasons for its negative reputation. Those who do not resonate with its vibrations find the vibes to be an obstacle and will certainly experience negative circumstances in their lives. 13 represents the basic triad, 1-2-3 as self -partnership-group. The individual digits in the number 3 add up to the number 4, which represent building a foundation for the future. The number 13 has the foundational vibration of humanity. Resonating with the vibrations of the number 13 can result in profound understandings.  The knowledge can be used for good or for evil, as past masters of the knowledge have demonstrated -- the wizards and witches and magicians of lore. The use of that understanding to gain what was unwanted by others or to gain control over others may be another reason for the numbers negative reputation. Everything is balanced. When something can be used for good, it can be used for bad. With a number as powerful as 13, the effects can be dramatic and profound and can have a long-lasting ripple effect into the future.

Announcing the Campaign to Help a Struggling Family Get Back on Their Feet



Help the Contreras family break the cycle of financial hardship and find a safe home for their children.

Sacremento, CAJanuary 12, 2015 – The Contreras, a family of five, consists of two loving parents and three wonderful daughters ages 4,5, and 13. The family became homeless on 9-6-14 after being evicted due to an unexpected change in management, resulting in their losing their home in favor of tenants better able to afford a higher rent.

The family moved their belongings to
Sacremento, CA, and quickly found themselves having car trouble. Their van is no longer safe to drive and exists primarily to hold their limited personal belongings. It has become a difficult task to find parking for the vehicle that will not result in tickets or towing.

While Mr. Contrera's husband's job will eventually turn into full time, and raises will apply after six months, both parents are currently only able to work part-time. Covering food, shelter or transportation is becoming more and more difficult. 

The family is asking for donations that will cover a variety of needs:  As the family applies for new housing, they will need to cover the cost of application fees, deposits, and first few months rent. The other funds would go towards getting a new used mini van. The monies received will allow the Contreras family to afford food, clothing and provide just enough to cover monthly rent.

As a family with 2 very young children, and one in middle school, Mrs. Contreras is growing increasingly more concerned about their safety and wellbeing. Finding schooling has been unsucessful due to their temporarily homeless state, and they have been forced to live in areas that are rife with crime.

A very hard working family, the Contreras are deeply grateful for every penny that can be donated to their cause. Their children need your help!

Announcing the Campaign to Help an Australian Women's & Children's Shelter



Help provide a safe haven for women and children in regional Queensland, Australia.


Brisbane, Queensland, Australia  January 11, 2015 – A non-profit organisation providing shelter for women and children in their time of need is looking for funds to make their shelter sustainable.

The shelter consists of 4 houses sitting together on one acre in a small town in regional
Queensland where women and their families can come and stay when they need to seek refuge.

The women and families who use this shelter can come from anywhere. The location is within one hours drive from a major regional airport. To help make it easier for the families who many need help, the shelter will assist with the cost of flights for any person in need.

The cause for this shelter runs deep. The cycle of violence and despair is difficult to escape, and their goal  is to give those dependent upon on the shelter every chance possible to start again in a safe and secure location. With the four houses, each consisting of 3 bedrooms, they are able to accomodate women on their own, or even whole families in need. The location chosen for the shelter is far removed from where these families have come, and provides peace and quiet in a quietly supportive small community with all amenities including a local police station for support.

Needed is the funds to keep the program going, and allow the shelter to provide free accomodations to both patrons and volunteer staff. The seeds to this program are already secured through a a generous donation of partial ownership of this property to the group running the shelter, and the first two houses are ready  for occupation. Volunteers are generously helping to run the program and are also provided free accomodation. While there is no cost to any woman or family staying with us, the shelter is relying on the support of donors to make this sustainable.

Any assistance, however small, will help to keep this program going.

Thank you.

Announcing the Education For Muntanga in Zambia Campaign



Creating A Life With Education For Muntanga

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – January 11, 2015 – Anne-marie is a 22 year old Zambian girl, studying Economics and Finance in Vancouver, Canada.

Last summer, she took some time out to visit her mother, who lives back home in Zambia. During this time, she was pleasantly surprised to meet a new addition to our extended family; Muntanga. Muntanga is a smiley, friendly and polite 9 year old girl who lives with her large family in the Zambian countryside.

Although she is just 9 years old, she has already lived an incredibly brutal life. Her stepmom regularly beats her, and forces her to partake in chores, which are way beyond her ability and age. Resultantly, her mother, an incredibly loving lady, has made the noble decision to provide free education for Muntanga, so that she may endure a brighter and better future, away from the difficulties faced at home.

What We Need & What You Get

During my childhood, her mother taught her to believe that education has a wonderful ability in changing not one person’s life, but entire communities Muntanga, given the proper love and support that a child deserves, can rise above her current circumstances, and grow into a kind and thoughtful woman, armored with the skills necessary to move forward from her past.

With your help, we can build a better future for Muntanga; increasing the likelihood that she may one day feel compelled to give something back to society. One life saved goes a long way… With your help and support, we can change the life of a young girl for the better.

Muntanga needs contributions to go to school, to buy her a uniform, a pair of  shoes, books and all the other necessities children need to learn. A proportion of the money will be used to feed her and pay for her healthcare, whilst the remaining funds will support living and transportation costs.

Our ultimate goal is to give Muntanga a normal, privately educated upbringing, away from the difficulties faced at home.

About Muntanga

Muntanga has been funny, sweet, motivated and kind; a quick and enthusiastic learner, who is an absolute pleasure to be around. Although she has only spent a short time with my mother, her confidence has already increased dramatically, and her ability to solve problems never ceases to amaze us.

Unfortunately, the difficult economic climate of recent years, has hit the general population in Zambia hard, applying enormous pressure on my mother’s attempts in providing free education for Muntanga. This breaks her Mom’s heart, not because she struggles to live, but because she is faced with the incredible real possibility that she may have to let Muntanga down.
