Russian Spy Anna Fermanova Smuggling Night Goggles For Sale

A Russian spy or a Latvian entrepreneur who lives in Texas and Moscow, Russia? Anna Fermanova is being labeled a sexy Russian spy - not surprisingly by tabloids and TV pundits seeking ratings and a spike in sales of rag mags.

Anna Fermanova's attorney Scott Palmer things the accusations and charges are ridiculous. When this goes to trial the facts will fully be brought to light and the judge and jury able to decide for themselves.

Until then the media will have much to say about Russian spy Anna Fermanova. LOL

Hats off and honorable mention to U.S. Homeland Security for being vigilant and arresting the infamous Russian spy (even though she's from Latvia) to safeguard U.S. interests and security technology. Hereafter the courts can decide her innocence or guilt.

Nevertheless with approximately 100,000 Russians living in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, NY - should we be surprised a couple are being paid by Moscow to spy on us?

When God Gives You the Desires of Your Heart

Purify your heart and rejoice with others when they are blessed. As you do God will undertake to give you the desires of your heart.

God gives ....He is a giver and loves people.

Last night I enjoyed a fabulous dinner at a Brazilian restaurant during a friend's birthday celebration. Afterward we all went to a cupcake place for dessert.

Not particularly interested in dessert, since I was satisfied after dinner (and had a good workout at the gym that day), I simply sat down and watched everybody sort through what cupcake they wanted to to purchase for themselves.

Nothing looked overly delicious or appealing to my eyes, except a chocolate raspberry cake, which was amazingly moist and not dried out (which I later learned some of the cupcakes were).

Nevertheless I didn't get a dessert and just contently enjoyed the company of my wife and friends, while they indulged. Then just before closing time to my surprise the store manager brought out several pieces of the chocolate raspberry cake I had previously noticed in the distance.

She graciously and generously gave us all several slices for free. It was delicious and very enjoyable (moreso for me because I wasn't on my second dessert after dinner as most). Therefore most of my friends just had a bite of the cake and never bothered to finish it. Hence I finished mine and politely grabbed a box (with the permission of the manager) to ensure all the delicious cake was not discarded.

My wife feeling a bit shy and bashful in the presence of friends tried to discourage me from bringing the cake home, saying she'd not be eating anymore. I laughingly said, "Yes, not today, but tomorrow..." Many laughed and enjoyed my comical references to my blond boss.

When I arrived home I put the lovely chocolate cake in a tupperware container so as to avoid ruining it in the frig. The next day after some fruit for breakfast, I had a piece of the coveted chocolate raspberry cake (which yes, my wife happily jumped right into - unlike she said publicly :o).

And I rejoiced in God who gave me the desires of my heart, without me ever having to open my mouth or spend a cent. Moreoever God blessed me with more than enough and even filled my friends, so I didn't have to feel guilty leaving with the blessing.

My wife agreed the cake was far better than the cupcakes!

This experience continually will remind me that our God is a loving heavenly Father that enjoys blessing His children when we simply live happily no matter what our circumstances. As we rejoice with others in their blessing, God always intervenes and orchestrates amazingly to ensure we get a blessing to rejoice in ourselves.

Therefore I encourage you to cherish the desires of your heart and love God because He cares about you!

Costa Rica the Richest Country on Earth: Costa Rica Living Well Considerations


Costa Rica has been named by many as the "Richest Country on Earth."

Depending on how you evaluate wealth and being rich, the national rankings for the richest country on earth could differ. As for me however health, personal wellness and daily enjoyment are extremely important - no amount of money in the world could replace these and make me happy.

If living healthy, peacefully, happily and less expensively is important to you; then you owe it to yourself to check out Costa Rica.

As a world traveler who has been to 60 countries (including Costa Rica) and lived in several continents, allow me to provide some fast facts about Costa Rica. Then you can decide for yourself if Costa Rica should be named the richest country on earth.

100,000 United States citizens live in Costa Rica. Why? It’s beautiful, “pura vida” – pure life at its best!

Here are my top 4 reasons why Costa Rica is a fantastic place to live both for expats and families, making it the richest country on earth in my book.

1. Costa Rica's health care system is affordable.

Costa Rica's health care has been said to be equal to that of the United States and far less expensive without the red tape of insurance companies and legal loopholes for insurers unwilling to pay for your health care.

Socialized medicine has gotten a bad rap, but the fact of the matter is when you need health care - humans in need don't care about government ideology. They just want immediate health care and that without a stack of legal documents, interrogations about health insurance and rude medical receptionists that dehumanize them.

Costa Rica works differently. Insurance co-pays and deductibles are not the norm. Hence the costs of health care are substantially lower and far less aggravating then in corporation nation (the United States).

Since Costa Rica has no standing military, Costa Rica invests its money into education, health care, infrastructure and its people rather than war.

It has been said Costa Ricans live longer than people in most countries on earth, being second only to Canadians.

2. Real estate is reasonably priced in Costa Rica.

You can rent a quality place near the beach for $600 a month in Costa Rica. Often with a bit of negotiation you can get a home to rent that is fully furnished, including internet and lawn maintenance. For only $1,000 a month you can rent a home on the beach.

Many expats buy homes in Costa Rica to enjoy during the cold winter months and then rent during the rest of the year as a source of rental income.

3. Costa Rica is a healthy place to live!

"Pura vida!" is the mantra often heard throughout Costa Rica - meaning pure life!

Undoubtedly this is no exaggeration as Costa Rica has an amazing tropical rain forest, lush green mountains, incredible volcanoes, gorgeous beaches (without all the shark attacks in Florida) with warm water, delicious food, a lively nightlife and far less legalistic society.

Since stress is the number one killer (as stated by Dr. Oz) and premature ager, it is a wise investment to reduce stress whenever possible in your life.

As a world traveler myself, living abroad where I can more easily stretch a dollar certainly is the first way to reduce stress for me.

Clean air and water thereafter are vitally important, which Costa Rica has both of in plenteous supply.

You won't find excessive chlorine, chemical additives and immune depleting flouride in Costa Rica's water supply. The air quality is also very good and invigorating.

The Costa Rica government is also committed to using renewable energy sources. American University and the University of Peace in Costa Rica have a sustainable development program that is receiving international praise and recognition.

4. Costa Rica is a friendly place to live!

I have traveled from Mexico to Argentina and Latinos in general (not to generalize while generalizing in a positive fashion) are very friendly people. Even more so in Costa Rica - a land surrounded by the Gulf of Mexico and Pacific Ocean.

Let's face it! People in warm climates are typically warmer socially. Costa Rica doesn't disappoint.

I was shocked at how trusting the local Costa Rican guy was in Jaco to let me rent his surfboard - requiring no deposit, just my U.S. drivers license.

Excessive contracts and legalities don't permeate the culture. Certainly good for sizeable real estate purchases, but not in every minute detail of everyday life.

Since Costa Rica is predominately Catholic and Christian, heartfelt charity abounds and the people are given to family life that cultivates a sense of community.

5. It is relatively easy and fast to start a business in Costa Rica.

With 100,000 American expats in Costa Rica and foreigners from elsewhere around the world, the business landscape is welcoming of foreigners and isn't overly interested in impeding economic progress.

Hence Costa Rica is a marvelous place for business owners - small and large alike.

There is so much more I can share, but I think it is time to wrap it up for now. You can contact me for further info about renting, buying and living in Costa Rica!

Costa Rica Expats Dos and Don'ts: Rules for Expats Moving to Costa Rica


Costa Rica has been named by many as the "Richest Country on Earth."

Depending on how you evaluate wealth and being rich, the national rankings could differ. As for me however health, personal wellness and daily enjoyment are extremely important - no amount of money in the world could replace these and make me happy.

If living healthy, peacefully, happily and less expensively is important to you; then you owe it to yourself to check out Costa Rica.

As a world traveler who has been to 60 countries (including Costa Rica) and lived in several continents, allow me to provide some fast facts and do and don'ts for expats moving to Costa Rica.

If you want the good news first, scroll down further to hear why Costa Rica is an awesome and first class place to live! But let's assume you've already heard great things about Costa Rica, but want to know some more things to be alert of.

1. Know and work with someone who lives in Costa Rica, not just someone who visits there.

As it pertains to real estate, I only work with my trusted and tried team of Realtors in Costa Rica within my global association of ethical professionals.

Here is why. The only place I ever had someone attempt to steal my rental car (out of the 60 countries where I have traveled) was in Costa Rica. This happened within an hour of me arriving and securing the car.

For a detailed story as to the Costa Rican banditos modus operandi, write me and I will both tell and provide you wise counsel as to how to avoid such traps overseas.

2. When buying real estate in Costa Rica, work with a real estate professional who has his TRC (Transnational Referral Certificate) and CIPS (Certified International Property Specialist) who understands the nuances of property rights and laws in Costa Rica and the country from which you originate.

As a global real estate professional the TRC and CIPS training was the best professional training I have had thus far and greatly empowered me to deal with expats, foreign buyers, properties abroad, legal matters, cross-cultural concerns and much more!

3. Never assume anything when buying property.

Costa Rica has squatter laws (which hopefully in due time shall be revised or done away with in full), which means if someone has been squatting on land or property you just bought, you may have some legal battles ahead of you to remove the longtime squatters from your land or property.

4. Take extra precautions to secure your property and yourself.

As my surfer friends who live in Costa Rica have told me, you must realize the Costa Rican police can be bribed and given to corruption. Furthermore in some parts of Costa Rica far from the cities, the police may be nonexistent or not ever bother coming when you call.

Hence many of the 100,000 Americans living in Costa Rica secure their own homes with alarm systems, dogs, electric fences, jagged glass and barbed wire atop the fences and own guns to provide further reinforcement if necessary.

Now for the benefits as to why Costa Rica is a fantastic place to live both for expats and families.

1. Costa Rica's health care system is affordable.

Costa Rica's health care has been said to be equal to that of the United States and far less expensive without the red tape of insurance companies and legal loopholes for insurers unwilling to pay for your health care.

Socialized medicine has gotten a bad rap, but the fact of the matter is when you need health care - humans in need don't care about government ideology.

Beat the Heat: Buy an Island in Canada for a Magnificent Summer Retreat




The owner of a private island in Canada just emailed me informing me his 41 acre private island is for sale at only $1.4 million, which comes with a two bedroom, one bath log home.

From the deck and redwood hot tub, you have a front-row seat for the steady summer parade of porpoise, whales, seals, herring, bald eagles and more!

Included with the island are two boats and two all-terrain vehicles. The boats are a 19-foot fiberglass over wood open skiff and a 22.5-foot all-fiberglass boat with wheelhouse. Reliable 4-stroke Honda outboard engines provide power to both boats. The ATVs are a Honda 4-wheeler and an Argo 8-wheel amphibious vehicle. All boats and ATVs are in excellent running condition, with low hours. There is also a mini-barn, to provide winter protection for the vehicles and other equipment.

Financing Startup Companies: Creative Catalyst and Master Marketer to Attract Investors


As a creative catalyst helping entrepreneurial companies engineer breakthroughs and master marketer captivating capital through properly presenting ideas to achieve buy-in, I understand how to overcome the challenges start-up companies face when pursuing venture capital.

Although predictable businesses looking for capital may have an easier time finding funding when they fit into a category that potential investors understand, such is not always the case as investors are looking for breakthrough ideas and something new to take to market. Besides the proverbial "same old same old" is downright boring isn't it?

Investors want to be inspired with passion, purpose and the pursuit of something worthwhile with revolutionary potential.

Most business owners can see their desirable destination, but have difficulty articulating, communicating and presenting what it is they are envisioning and desiring to pursue.

Hence an articulate creative catalyst is needed to bridge the gaps and build investor buy-in to secure the capital necessary to launch and sustain the entrepreneurial venture.

Otherwise the business idea shall be aborted before it ever leaves the spiritual womb of he who envisioned it in the first place.

Remember creating new industries means creating jobs - which both the public governmental and private business sectors applaud and embrace in tough economic times.

Yet revolutionary ideas must be communicated and articulated in a brilliant fashion to provide illuminating insights or revelation knowledge to those providing the funding. Otherwise the ideas will lack appeal, passion and the necessary intangible pull to get investors salivating and wanting to pony up the funds for your company.

Highlighting your strengths, uniquenesses and company assets takes skill, tact, insight and wisdom to overcome obstacles and resistance at the negotiating table.

Therefore it pays to invest in and hire strategic help to properly frame and present your company's opportunities to investors before looking for cash and coming out of the oven half baked.

Remember your first impression will not be forgotten and your last impression is your lasting impression.

Plan your work and work your plan.

Place in the Sun: Florida Vacation Homes at Half Price


Where is your desirable place in the sun for relaxation and fun?

As a Global Properties Specialist and world traveler who has been to 60 countries and lived in several continents, I have a great affinity for each lovely place in the sun I have personally experienced and visited.

I'd be happy to help you find the perfect vacation home anywhere in the world.

Being a native born Floridian, I also know some of the phenomenally priced Florida vacation homes at half price given the current global economic downturn and sad U.S. economy.

I spoke to a real estate broker yesterday who told me he sold the same 5 bedroom / 4 bathroom / 3 car garage home, which he had formerly sold originally for $480,000. What was the selling price this year? An amazingly low $169,000.

So when I say Florida vacation homes at half price, I truly mean it and am not exaggerating in the slightest.

My father a real estate appraiser new Florida vacation homes were over priced for years and didn't buy into much of the market hype. Yet all of the foreigners buying Florida vacation homes makes our state unique and sustained vacation home prices for years.

Yet when banks throughout Europe and the United States took a hit, prices had to come down.

Now at basement prices you can purchase a Florida vacation home to secure your place in the sun and partake in the fun!

Leadership Speaker: Leadership Lessons from the American Revolution

When General George Washington led the colonies to victory over the British army, thereafter instead of crowning himself king, he crowned the country the United States. The battle cry of the American Revolution heard throughout the colonies: "No king, but King Jesus!" Hence today the United States has a longstanding democracy giving power to its people which preserves the both the union and its national dignity.

Timeless truths and leadership principles to live by to build people and enduring organizations. http://paulfdavis.com/leadership-speaker

Living in America: Getting in America Entry Visa Ideas and Immigration Consultant

Getting in America is not as hard as you may think.

If you are desirous of living in America and have $500,000 to invest to do so the U.S. government now offers some attractive visa options to welcome millionaires willing to invest and create jobs.

As someone who has traveled to 60 countries and lived in several continents overseas, I personally understand and know what it feels like to be a foreign national. I don't like to use the word alien because it seems dehumanizing and derogatory. After all God created the world and who are we to erect borders and boundaries to keep people out.

The United States of America was founded by immigrants who left Europe seeking a place to live freely and worship God without restrictions. The Statue of Liberty itself gives an open welcome to the poor, hungry, downtrodden and unwanted of the world.

Therefore if you desire living in America or getting in America, I have visa ideas for immigration purposes that can help.

Lender Discrimination of Pregnant Women for Maternity Leave Possibility

Being a Global Properties Specialist serving buyers of real estate throughout the world and the author of "Empowering & Liberating Women" I was boiling mad when I heard about lender discrimination against pregnant women.

In Canada where my wife comes from pregnant women are treated like royalty and get full salary while on maternity leave and are treated with the utmost respect.

Unfortunately however here in the States as the birth rate continues to decline across the country and the economic troubles continue, lender discrimination is not helping pregnant women seeking maternity leave to care for their newborn babies.

Women are increasingly claiming they are being discriminated against on the job because they're pregnant. To make matters worse, now lender discrimination is making it hard for pregnant women to buy a home.

The U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) has announced that it will launch multiple investigations into the lending practices of certain mortgage lenders to determine if they illegally denied families mortgages because the mother is pregnant or a family member is experiencing a short-term disability.

According to Mortgage Professional Magazine the action follows a report published in The New York Times outlining the lending practices of some lenders which might possibly violate the Fair Housing Act.

"Denying a mortgage to people just because they're having a baby is flat wrong," said u.s. Vice President Joe Biden, Chair of the White House Task Force on Middle Class Families. "Mothers on maternity leave have jobs, they have income, and they shouldn't have to lose their deal to close on a house because they had a baby. I applaud HUD for taking action on this practice that could potentially affect untold numbers of families."

HUD Secretary Shaun Donovan said, "Lenders have every right to ascertain the incomes of families to determine whether they are eligible for a mortgage loan but they have no right to use a pregnancy or a short-term disability as a cause to deny that family a mortgage they would otherwise qualify for. Having a child should be a time for a family to celebrate and must not be a cause for unfair lending practices."

If you have experienced lender discrimination as a result of being pregnant and anticipated future maternity leave, contact me and share your story so we can make some noise and mobilize a national boycott of these corrupt mortgage companies and those banks practicing lender discrimination.

Filipino Nurses: Filipino Nurses, Best Health Care Workers in the World

Filipino nurses are arguably the best health care workers in the world.

As someone who has traveled to 60 countries and lived in several continents, I can attest to the character of the wonderful Filipino people. Filipinos culturally genuinely care about people.

I have traveled to the islands of Luzon, Mindanao and Surigao and was warmly greeted and welcomed by Filipinos in each place. The litmus test however was when I was serving at a local church one month during a brief visit. Upon being discouraged by the Pastor's inability to invite and welcome new people to church, I decided to go door to door throughout the neighborhood on foot.

I was shocked and so surprised to experience the warmth and hospitality of the Filipino community and people. Nearly every home I visited respectfully welcomed me in and treated me like royalty, providing me the utmost hospitality, often serving refreshments and earnestly listening to my every word. Such kindness would rarely happen in Western countries if an absolute stranger and foreigner showed up at the door for conversation.

Filipinos however are sweet, sincere and very kind people. This is why Filipino nurses are notably recognized and esteemed throughout the world, because they are professional and innately caring toward people.

As someone who was raised by my grandparents and cared for them in their old age, I know the intense challenges involved in health care and the amount of patience required when caring for the sick, elderly and terminally ill.

I also know what it is like to be sick and dying, as I had typhoid in Thailand and for a few days nobody knew what was wrong with me. Meanwhile my kidneys were shutting down, my urine was brown like Coca-Cola and my body ached with pain.

I was so angry when for a few weeks my grandmother was neglected in a nursing home, which she had to remain in while undergoing rehabilitation after a horrible fall that caused her to break her hip.

My Nana (grandma) had sores on her feet because she was not being rotated and given opportunity to move around and keep her circulation and blood flowing.

I believe American nursing homes are often understaffed and the workers under paid. Hence the health care is often poor and the nurses resentful toward the companies they work for.

Nevertheless tenderhearted Filipinos graciously have a way to kindly look beyond these industry challenges and focus on the suffering patients for whom they were hired to care.

For this reason I esteem, honor and admire Filipino nurses and as a world traveling motivational speaker who knows what it is like to live overseas want to offer myself to help Filipino nurses living abroad and seeking to succeed in this world, while lovingly serving humanity.

Here is what I am willing to do for Filipino nurses:
1. Provide global property and real estate investment advice and help you buy your first home.

2. Provide life and relational coaching.

3. Provide counsel regarding personal safety when living abroad.

4. Provide consultation for additional career and financial opportunities.

God bless the wonderful Filipino nurses throughout the world (often away from their families) to serve humanity and be a blessing to the suffering and elderly in need of goodhearted health care.

Canadian Buyers Bank of America Drama, Snags, Contract Problems

Canadian buyers of real estate and homes in the United States have recently discovered just how corrupt business can be south of the border.

Since my wife is Canadian I pay close attention to these scams and methods by which banks, mortgage brokers and real estate developers prey on the unsuspecting sincere foreign buyers coming from afar to "live the American dream" and escape the cold Canadian winters.

Sadly what is far more cold than the Canadian winters is the way some in the United States do business and deceive good hearted people with pure intentions.

Ready, willing and able Canadian buyers desirous of taking banks' toxic loans off the books, are being told sometimes they cannot use their Royal Bank funds and must use domestic banks to finances their home purchases.

Why would anyone want to finance with someone like Bank of America which is said to be 130% over its head in debt? Let's not forget folks Canada has the best banking system in the world. Why then are banks trying to force them to buy a home with their funds rather than allowing them to access their own? It's all about greed and making a bit more money for desperate U.S. banks sinking, but it seems like a contradiction to complicate a purchase of a home which the original borrower defaulted on.

God knows we complicate things way too much here in the States - the most litigious and arguably bureacratic nation on earth.

If Canadians cannot use their Royal Bank monies, they most likely need a social security number to make purchases otherwise through U.S. banks ...further slowing down the purchase.

These bureaucratic hoops for Canadians must be eliminated, lest they up and leave and take their money elsewhere in the world to buy property (I can help my Canadian friends with these other options across the globe and in the States if they have a bit of patience and staying power).

No buyer should be made to stick around for a year while a bank figures out how to fix its bad books, dump defaulted loans and sell abandoned homes.

I welcome my Canadian friends to contact me to help and advocate your cause to every level and layer of government here in the United States. Please tell me your stories and bad experiences so I can be a voice of reason to government and publicize this further on the Internet and seel legislative reform to make your purchases smoother in the future.

If you are ever in Florida, I would be happy to meet and hear your story personally.

Safest Investment in the World to Protect Your Savings

Money Week's Simon Wilson and I agree on the value of the Chinese renminbi (or 'yuan') in global currency markets. In my opinion the Chinese renminbi (or 'yuan') is the safest investment in the world today. As for sizeable gains, I believe they too can be realized providing you have the staying power and patience to wait until China's government removes the peg to the dollar and lets the renminbi / yuan free float.

Wilson reported on March 12, 2010: "China saw a 46% surge in exports in the year to February, lending fresh weight to complaints that its currency is undervalued."

Several economists predict, including 'Doctor Doom' Nouriel Roubini and Goldman Sachs' chief economist Jim O'Neill, that China is set to relax or remove the renminbi's unofficial dollar peg. This has been in place since July 2008.

As the Money Week reporter wrote: "Most analysts agree it undervalues the renminbi (or 'yuan') by around 25%-40%. Currency traders got excited last weekend when the governor of the People's Bank of China, Zhou Xiaochuan, hinted that a revaluation – or least appreciation – was on the way. Zhou said the currency peg was a 'temporary' policy for dealing with the financial crisis."

Given the fact the United States is in over its head with $13 trillion in debt, between 60-70% of national GDP (Gross Domestic Product) being used to service its debt and the reality that China is the biggest holder / banker financing U.S. debt (presently around $1 trillion) ...it is a no brainer that China holds the keys to the United States economic future.

What that says for China's renminbi / yuan is great stability and upward mobility, meaning it is only going to go up baby. Whether it happens now or later, it assuredly will happen. The greater concern for U.S. citizens seeking to protect your savings is to realize that the dollar is bound to go down and lose value rapidly when the artificial governmental bursts of stimulus stop - which they eventually will.

To safeguard your cash and invest in China's renminbi / yuan go here http://tinyurl.com/24llu22 a fantastic, inexpensive and easy to use online vehicle for stocks, bonds and currency trading.

Soldier Suicide Prevention Speaker Empowering Soldiers to Overcome Adversity

U.S. soldier suicide reaches all-time high of 32 in June, 2010. Army General Peter Chiarelli reveals contributing factors to soldier suicide. Even more surprising, some of the soldier suicides are occurring among soldiers not even deployed overseas for combat.

Paul F Davis is a soldier suicide prevention speaker empowering soldiers to overcome adversity.

"Breakthrough for a Broken Heart" author Paul F Davis knows the secrets to overcome adversity, transcend tragedy and to triumph over tribulations to live victoriously!

http://www.PaulFDavis.com
info@PaulFDavis.com
407-967-7553

Davis, raised by his beloved Army retired Lt. Colonel grandfather, contemplated suicide at the tender age of 12 when his father and stepmother took custody of him and he suffered child abuse and neglect.

Thankfully Colonel Krofchik, Paul's precious grandfather whom he calls "Pop-Pop" came to get him a couple weekends a month to walk with Paul shoulder to shoulder through his trying and turbulent time during his adolescence.


In like fashion, Paul, the cousin of a retired Army Ranger, walks shoulder to shoulder with soldiers providing heartfelt and inspirational talks to empower soldiers to overcome adversity and value their precious lives again.

As General Chiarelli told ABC News concerning the contributory factors leading to soldier suicide, they are primarily threefold:
1. Money troubles
2. Substance abuse
3. Failed relationships

Davis, a soldier suicide prevention speaker, speaks powerfully and personally to all three of these struggles of soldiers.

When Davis was hit by a drunk driver in July 2008, the car he and his wife shared was totaled in an instant. The driver earned her 2nd DUI in two years, served her 90 days and was thereafter released. But Paul remained imprisoned to circumstances and financial hardships resulting from that accident for two years, the first four months of which was spent battling his insurance company to get a replacement vehicle.

Meanwhile Paul and his wife drove rental cars at a huge expense for four months. As medical bills and expenses piled up, Paul felt emotionally overwhelmed. Nevertheless Paul purposed in his heart to cherish and celebrate life regardless of the external obstacles trying to squeeze him in.

As for substance abuse, Paul's biological mother (a former high school cheerleader and university graduate) got snared by alcohol and drug use. Hence Paul grew up with his maternal grandparents until his father and stepmother took custody of him in 5th grade. As for Paul's mother throughout his childhood, she was either in a drug rehab, jail, bar getting drunk or mental ward being evaluated as a result of her ongoing substance abuse.

Paul is also familiar with failed relationships. A worldwide minister and motivational speaker who has touched 60 countries building bridges cross-culturally and empowering people of all ages to live their dreams, Paul suffered a terrible divorce after his wife of 5 years had an affair while he was speaking in Pakistan following 9-11.

Although Paul earnestly tried to reconcile and seek restoration of his marriage through counseling, his ex-wife remained unrepentant and wayward in heart. Thus two months after her infidelity and ongoing drinking and befriending other men, Paul filed for divorced and proceeded to move on with his life.

Even momentarily during the separation and eventual divorce thoughts of murder and suicide went through Paul's mind. Thankfully Paul found strength in God, prayer, church and life coach training; which all collectively gave birth to Paul's book "Breakthrough For A Broken Heart" as he processed his personal pain during his emotional ground zero.

Given that Paul has personally and profoundly repeatedly overcome immense adversity in his own life, Paul speaks from a great depth and sincerity when addressing soldiers struggling with suicide making them feel safe and honoring their feelings and emotions, while empowering them to rise above the inner turbulence to triumph over their personal tragedies and live victoriously.

As even U.S. military chaplains have admitted and confessed to suicide attempts, soldiers do not need to feel ashamed because these are normal symptoms of battle fatigue and war. Rather than feel downcast, dejected or defeated, Paul empowers soldiers to come together and transparently share and discuss their struggles to be mutually edified, enriched and empowered by each others' perspectives, insight and experiences.

Paul therefore successfully gets rid of the dehumanizing stigma involved with behavioral health issues so as to reaffirm soldiers in their personal identity outside of combat. Thus soldiers are strengthened, affirmed and fortified to love themselves despite their struggles, weaknesses and personal challenges as they recognize these are issues we all face and part of life itself.

After being with Paul, soldiers are able to let go of built up stress, anxiety, self loathesome attitudes and tendencies to arise with new hope and a positive attitude and outlook on life.

Affirming and renewing soldiers to again love life is Paul's expertise and personal passion. Resurrect hope in your soldiers, commanders and troops on your base by bringing Paul in to empower your battle weary soldiers to regain their self-respect and personal dignity.

Undoubtedly the soldiers who have so bravely and tirelessly served and protected our country are entited to be weary, restless and feel hopeless at times. By honoring these feelings as common, normal and expected Paul removes the emasculating dehumanizing stigma of suicide and imparts to soldiers a new outlook and love for life!

Newness of life is here! Don't delay! Save a soldier's life today!

Gazumping Real Estate, an English Phenomena

The fact that a property cannot be sold under the terms that the sales agreement becomes invalid if the seller can find a better price is a practice familiar in the U.S., but in England, this practice is a legal and widely-used practice (as well as widely-hated) called gazumping.

Women's Issues Speaker: Testimony from Liverpool, England

I received this encouraging testimony from Liverpool, England this week concerning my book "Empowering & Liberating Women"

info @ PaulFDavis.com
http://www.PaulFDavis.com/women-issues-speaker

Hi Paul,

I have read the book. I would like to say a massive thank you for the privelige of reading it. It really moved me. As a believer in Christ, baptised in the Holy Spirit I felt no barriers when reading the concepts of finding value, worth and Individuality. I have personally experienced the restoration of God in my life. God made me see myself differently and gave me my sense of worth and security. This book has fantastic principles, and speaks straight to the heart, addressing the issues that real women face. I was really sad to hear about your Mother, but appreciated your openness and honesty. I wont require any monies for using my testimonial, I would just really like for others to hear about this amazing book, and have the oppertunity to read it. Reading this book stirred me to think about how I allow others to treat me, and to find that inner voice. The book is fresh, modern and insightful with a great message. This is a book is for every woman, and reading it will empower women to achieve thier dreams, feel loved, valued and esteemed, To have healthier relationships, and to be stronger and secure in thier convictions - a great read.

Student Loan Appeals, Complaints, Unfair Treatment

As a certified debt arbitrator to help people regain peace, live free and fulfill their future dreams I want to help people stressed out and suffering.

Let's face it, life and loans are not always so cut and dry. I know I couldn't easily "fit" in all the boxes when I applied for my student loan.

I had been hit by a drunk driver that totalled my vehicle, caused me bodily injuries, medical bills and financial hardship. Years prior my mom was killed by a drunk driver. Then just a few weeks before I applied for a student loan, again I was hit by another car ....even worse however as this time I was on my bicycle.

To further complicate matters over I was victimized by identity theft twice over several years.

Most student loan applications don't have a box for you to write in your "extenuating circumstances" as to why your finances are currently a wreck. Representatives on the phone also aren't always so sympathetic either.

So if you can't seem to make any headway or progress, try these resources below I found at the Assistance Within the Department of Education's website: http://www.studentloanborrowerassistance.org/where-to-go-for-help/

Student Loan Ombudsman
The ombudsman office was created to help borrowers with difficult problems. The ombudsman has a website and borrowers can submit problems online. The toll-free phone number is 877-557-2575. The e-mail address is fsaombudsmanoffice@ed.gov; the fax number is 202-275-0549; the mail address is U.S. Department of Education, FSA Ombudsman, 830 First Street, N.E., Washington, D.C. 20202-5144.

Legislator Contacts
You might also try contacting your congressional representative or senator’s office for assistance. You can find their names and contact information on-line:

Islamic Financing and Banking, Community Based Banking

Islamic financing and banking from a community perspective benefits consumers in that there is not the life altering blow of ridiculous interest rates forever putting one (and the family) in economic enslavement.

Plus from a business perspective and viewpoint bankers suffer far fewer defaults by debtors, thereby strengthening the economy with integrity and trust in financial dealings throughout the marketplace.

Islamic banking and financing is godly, wise financially and something we all could learn from and pattern our investments by. To learn more: http://tinyurl.com/2bljz5g

Diversity Speaker for Cultural Sensitivity and Company Profitability

Interactions with foreign clients and customers are best begun by being quick to hear and slow to speak. By being alert and sensitive to THEIR EXPECTATIONS, using caution to avoid putting your map on others and by mirroring their cultural pattern of business and social behavior you can build rapport and win favor with foreign clients.

Stereotypes and summarizations are usually done prematurely in haste with a large amount of speculative presumption. Certainly many have hung themselves and thwarted many good business relationships by their impatience and lack of cross-cultural awareness.

Certainly some (and perhaps many) individuals in a particular group tend to share certain characteristics. Yet given socio-economic factors, which vary widely in foreign countries between the haves and have-nots, it is wise not to presume anything.

Undoubtedly the "up-and-out" live better and communicate differently than the "down-and-out" in any country or society. Not to mention that great disparity and invisible gulf between people within even their own cities and countries is an unspoken attitude which you must discern and appropriately navigate around respectfully with grace.

Nevertheless for Americans (citizens of the United States) especially (25% of which do not even own passports and therefore have most likely never journeyed abroad) generalizations simplify other cultures and people from different countries. America geographically however extends well beyond the United States including nations from Canada to Argentina (perhaps herein lies some of the confusion and arrogance as people in the USA often refer to themsleves as "Americans" in exclusive fashion, not even considering others within the Americas).

Of course this is the most lazy approach to dealing with people whom you know little about. And as I previously mentioned earlier, this clueless and self-absorbed disinterested approach rarely endears people to you and therefore seldom pays off.

Of course for self-centered, clueless and arrogant people generalizations help them cope and remain enclosed within their isolated rigid and frigid world. But if you are endeavoring to be successful in the global economy, you must abandon this mentality.

Generalizations therefore are only useful guidelines to get you started and perhaps in the vicinity of the individual with whom you are going to be interacting. Generalizations however should never hold you in captivity, nor be held to rigidly.

As you observe each individual's personality, social interactions, communication style, mannerisms and behavior adjust and modify your approach with them accordingly. Revise your opinions and responses as necessary to ensure a solid rapport, interpersonal connection and warm dialogue and communication are established.

Upon observing how an individual’s behavior and reactions match or differ from our understanding of their culture and expectations make the necessary adjustments in your interpersonal approach.

Stereotypes are often misnomers that misguide, misdirect and demean both your client and you (revealing your own stupidity and lack of cultural sensitivity).

Don't allow stereotypes and generalizations to distract you, nor interfere with your heartfelt sensitivity and ability to treat people as individuals.

I myself in all candor and honesty have repeatedly failed at this miserably (and that despite my good intentions). One of my most common blunders is to ask foreigners and immigrants now living in America, "Where are you from?"

At least half of more of them say coldly or sternly, "America" as if to assert their citizenship.

I however as a world traveler (having visited 60 countries and lived in several continents) simply was curious and hoping to connect with them at a cultural level and further familiarize myself with their ancestral origins and country.

Again despite our heartfelt intentions and sincerity, if spoken improperly we can easily erect walls of distrust and sow seeds of discord to frustrate and alienate the very people we are trying to connect with at a deeper level.

One thing I learned from my friends in east India when asking for someone's name is to say: "What is your GOOD name?"

By inserting the word "good" before name, it removes some suspicion and fear people have of you asking them their name.

Company reps sometimes feel threatened by you knowing their name, as if you are seeking to report them for poor service or something they've done wrong.

However when you insert "good" before name, your request for a person's name is perceived to be more positive and less threatening.

How amazing it is to see the interpersonal shift in cross-cultural communications with just one word, which greatly can alter the dialogue, interaction and means of expression.

Knowing this be extra careful and super sensitive. Choose your words wisely.

Bury stereotypes and generalizations as they can be presumptuous and hazardous to your business success.

Employ and put in place diversity business practicies and policies that honor people's differences cross-culturally. As you do expect employees, clients, associates and prospects to increase their level of respect for you and your company.

Cultural sensitivity will greatly enhance your ability to communicative effectively cross-culturally, increase company profitability and lead to successful transactions that result in repeat business.
