I am a part of an NGO(MAD) teaching and supporting orphans.
My world is built around my Father(Businessman),my Mother(LSS),and two younger sisters with whom I share a tom and jerry relation,of course they being the jerry making a fool out of me everytime.There is a voting agreement in between three of us on any important decision.Albeit it never worked out for me as they always form a Nexus and vote collectively.So I end up giving in to their demands always.
My father has been a real gentleman,fair in all his decisions and a complete man in every sphere.He has been a great influence on me and
Few things I learned from my father are:
1.To loose but not to loose hope and desire.
2.To respect time.
My mother has been my backbone and Ventilator for me as whenever I run out of hope or confidence she breathes it back into me everytime.She never complains, whether my teacher tells her with a poker face that I am the most talkative boy in the class, or that I make fun of teachers or WHY DOES HE TAKES THE TROUBLE TO COME TO SCHOOL FOR anywaysNow coming to school life.My Alma Mater,one famous for all the wrong reason ,from teahers been locked in staff rooms to crackers bursting in and around classrooms and many others….is St.F.X.S.
Nevertheless one phase of life we all miss no…
Definitions For NPOs, NGOs and The Third Sector
NPOs can simply be defined as a corporation that cannot operate for profit. The money earned or donated to NPO is used in pursuing the organization objectives. Most NPO organizations also seek for tax exemption. These are formal, private, not profit distributing, self-governing and voluntary organizations. (Defining the Non-Profit , Sector.Salamon M.L., Anheier. K.H.John Hopkins Comparative Nonprofit Sector) They are also referred to as corporations or an associations that conduct business for the benefit of the general public without shareholders. State laws on NPOs vary from state to state, but generally state gives tax breaks and exemptions to NPOs that are operated exclusively for either religious and charities.(The Free Dictionary by farlex) NPO is also seen as an organization that serves some public purposes and therefore enjoys a special treatment under law. Contrary to their name, it can make a profit but can’t be designed primarily for profit making. (Entrepreneur. http://www.entrepreneur.com/encyclopedia/nonprofit-corporation) Business dictionary further defines NPOs as “Associations, charities, cooperative and other voluntary organizations formed to further cultural, educational, religious, professional or public service purposes. Their start up funding is provided by their members, trustees, or others who do not expect repayment and who do not share in the organization profits or losses which are retained or absorbed .” (http://www.businessdictionary.com/definition/non-profit-organization-NPO.html)
NGO is any non-profit, voluntary organisation which is organized on a local, national or international level. Task-oriented and driven by people with a general interest, NGOs perform a variety of service and humanitarian functions, bring citizen concerns to Governments, advocate and monitor policies and encourage political participation through provision of information. Some are organized around…
While it is true that flat-proof tires are practically indestructible, some common sense care and maintenance techniques can extend the life of your tires. Here are a few tips for care and maintenance of your flat-proof tires:Henan Daswell Machinery Co., Ltd,is a professional manufacturer and trader specializing in the research, development and production of construction machinery for nearly 30 years. Our main products are as follows:concrete pumping,portable concrete mixer,etc. We will provide you with the best product and service. 1. Make sure you order the right kind of semi-pneumatic tire for your machine and for the surface on which the machine will work. 2. Make sure you examine the tires as soon as you get them to check for manufacturer defects, incorrect sizing, shipping damage, or any other anomalies. Be sure to contact your dealer, distributor, or manufacturer immediately to report any issues. 3. Make sure you put the tires on the machine and try the tires out as soon as you get them to test for any sizing, fitment, and/or compatibility issues and to “get a feel” for how the tires perform- it may take you a while to get used to the tires. 4. Know the weight capacity of your tires- try not to overload the machine. 5. When operating the machine, limit the amount of skidding (doughnuts) as much as possible and try to avoid zero degree/zero radius turns- especially on concrete, pavement, asphalt, gravel, etc. 6. Keep tires clean in-between uses- wash off mud, debris, etc. (especially in aperture holes) and then pat dry. If tires come into contact with oil or petroleum products portable concrete mixers, wipe off with a rag as soon as possible.
When air is introduced into the placing line, the crew must stand back from the placing hose until the air clears and a steady flow of concrete is being discharged through the hose. A placing hose should never have any type of metal at its end, such as s-bends, rams horns, or even a metal connector for another placing hose. If the hose was to whip, metal devices could cause serious injury or loss of life.Henan Daswell Machinery Co., Ltd,is a professional manufacturer and trader specializing in the research, development and production of construction machinery for nearly 30 years. Our main products are as follows:concrete block making machine,mobile concrete mixer,etc. We will provide you with the best product and service. The crew should have only one person giving direction to the pump operator, communicating movement of the boom, speed of placement, or the starting or stopping of concrete delivery. The ACPA recommends a set of hand signals for communication between the person giving directions and the pump operator to help ensure a safe placement. When an operator can’t see the placement, they must have contact with the placing crew via a relay person or radio contact. When a concrete pump operator is located at the point-of-placement, away from the pump, an oiler must be at the hopper to ensure that the proper level of concrete is maintained in the hopper, to direct backing-up by ready-mix trucks, and to make sure the pump and outriggers are working properly. This person should be trained by the operator to know the locations of the emergency stops and the dangers of the pump itself; the hopper, water box diesel engine concrete mixer, the lifting or sinking of outriggers, and any oil leaks.
Ron Paul, a former politician who served as the US Representive for Texas gave the speech, “What If”. Formerly, a doctor and an author, Ron Paul understands the need for protection for all Americans. Ron Paul has been consistent for honest money, freedom of liberty and minding our own business. As he has pointed out, the wrong choices made by our country could result in global warfare. In his own words, ” War is not worth lives.”
Ron Paul states very clearly that foriegn policy has nothing to do with our national security, but wartime conditions always undermine our personal liberty. Foriegn policy in American eyes seem to become a bigger issue than protecting our homeland. Ron Paul clarifies that the government does not reflect the people. Government change has brought more harm than benefits to human rights. The American human rights, as he puts it are no longer of interest. Ron shows deep concern over the fact that the government is losing billions every day to accomplish nothing, but the request for an empire that eventually will destroy all great nations.
Going to war, as he believes is based on lies in order to serve special interest. So, what is the cost of all this? It is our loved ones, and our own personal safety jepordized. Over 5000 soldiers have died, and as Ron Paul puts it, ” It’s not a fare trade offer.” His statement is heart felt, as many listen and can connect because so many people have lost a loved one, or know someone who has died. As Ron puts it,” To occupy another country for special interest is directing hatred toward us.” He says, terriosts threaten us because our government meddels in their business. War and military spending is destructive to our economy.
Ron Pauls ” What Ifs ” are not what ifs, He shows us all, its “What Is”.
The government is more interested in their fight on terror in other countries, than trying to protect our own. Less money is spent on protecting our borders, airlines, schools,…
Houses of the National Revival Period
The wooden house built in late 18th and early 19th century are most numerous and best preserved monuments from the Bulgarian National Revival Period. With its original architecture, they reveal the development and significance of the Black Sea type of wooden house – an expression of the original creative genius of the Bulgarian builder.
In 18th century in Nessebar occurred economical bloom, expressed mostly in renovation of residential buildings. Gradually a new aspect of the town was created – town of well-off producers, fishermen, and shopkeepers.
Houses of Nessebar were two storied. Lower storey was built in stone and mud. Here were stored the butts of wine and all winegrower’s, fisherman’s and craftsman stock. A narrow and abrupt stairs lead towards upper floor, where around a big hall rooms are situated: two or three for the owners and their guests, a kitchen with a larder. Inside the rooms were whitewashed and outside covered with planks. While the walls of lower floor followed irregular outlines of the lot, upper floor was extended in rectangular surfaces.
The restored houses, more than 100, form picturesque architectural ensembles. One is situated around Ivan Alexander Street. Here the most interesting house is the one white washed second floor, decorated with the so-called shoulder-yoke. There is another ensemble near the Old Metropolitan church. Of great interest are the houses around the church St. Archangels Michael and Gabriel, especially the Nakov’s house and the Vardaliev’s, which is the only three-storied house.The Ethnographical museum
Moskoyani’s house is a typical example of Nessebar house architecture from the late National Revival period. It houses the ethnographical museum which presents an exhibition of traditional costumes from Burgas area distinguished by colour and variety.
The Moskoyani House is one of the most interesting Renaissance monuments – a typical example of Nessebar residental…
Engineer of Daswell Machinery Co., Ltd pointed out: drum concrete mixer is also called self falling type of mixer. Drum concrete mixer places mixture in a rotating drum. With the rotation of the mixing drum, drum blades elevate the mixture to a certain height, and then the mixture fall freely by the self weight. Such go round and begin again to mix, until the mixture is ready mixed.Henan Daswell Machinery Co., Ltd,is a professional manufacturer and trader specializing in the research, development and production of construction machinery for nearly 30 years. Our main products are as follows:concrete mixers,mini concrete pump,etc. We will provide you with the best product and service. Drum concrete mixer is suitable to mix plastic and semi-plastic concrete. It has the following characteristics: barrel made of stainless steel, firm welding portable concrete mixer, easy to clean; 360 degrees rotation & mixing, feeding and discharging at any position, convenient operation, etc. From the above we can know that Daswell’s JZC drum concrete mixer whose mixing drum rotated by the ring gear has the advantages of reliable transmission, low noise, low energy consumption, compact structure, smooth operation, simple operation, high mixing quality, high efficiency. To sum up, JZC drum concrete mixer’s performance reflected in: it belongs to self falling type double reversing drum concrete mixer. The drum is transmitted by gear and rotates clockwise during mixing and anticlockwise during discharging. The construction equipment can mix plasticity and damp half-dry concrete. It is usually used on ordinary construction sites, roads, bridges projects and concrete prefabricated parts factories. JZC drum concrete mixer adopts gear wheel and gear ring meshed, which can effectively overcome track slip between supporting wheel and the mixer drum in rainy and foggy weather.
The American Concrete Pavement Association’s (ACPA) guidelines require concrete pump outriggers to be placed not less than 1 foot away from a cut for each foot of a vertical excavation. For instance, if a vertical cut is 6 feet deep, the pump’s outriggers must be located at least 6 feet away mobile concrete mixer, maintaining 45 degrees of soil from the outrigger to the toe of the cut, referred to as the one-to-one rule. Extra distance may be required if soil conditions appear muddy, soft, or loose. If the outriggers rest on shoring, ask the soil engineer what soil pressures the shoring will support and what methods are needed to spread the outrigger loads for adequate support.Henan Daswell Machinery Co., Ltd,is a professional manufacturer and trader specializing in the research, development and production of construction machinery for nearly 30 years. Our main products are as follows:concrete mixer machine,diesel concrete mixer,etc. We will provide you with the best product and service. Crew safety is part of the equation. Whenever a concrete pump is on a jobsite, be sure to have a person available to assist the operator when the pump truck is backing up. Identify the washout area and have a Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan in place. When using a concrete pump, there is always the danger of hose whipping, and most often happened when air gets into placing lines. This can happen in many ways, such as when a pump stops and gravity allows concrete to free-fall from a line replacing the concrete with air, or when concrete in the hopper falls below the intake allowing air into the placing line. The air, under pressure when the pump starts pumping again, is compressed and may cause the placing hose to whip violently.

Media the fourth pillar of democracy.
“The media’s the most powerful entity on Earth. They have the power to make the innocent guilty and make the guilty innocent and that’s power. Because they control the mind of the masses.” MalcolmX
The three pillars of democracy that is the judiciary, legislative, and the executive cannot function without the fourth pillar –MEDIA. Everything in this modern age is powered by media from the moment we wake up until we sleep at night. Over the years, media has played a pivotal role in making people understand the meaning of democracy. It’s the media who reminds politicians about their unfulfilled promises made at the time of elections. It exposes loopholes in the democratic system, which ultimately helps the government in filling the vacuums making it more accountable, responsive and citizen- friendly. Media plays an important role in shaping the personality of people which makes them more sensible and capable to shoulder their responsibilities towards the nation, the democracy. It has deepened the roots of democracy by exposing various scams, scandals, fraud and many other cases of corruption, leading to initiations of inquiries. However there have been many instances when they acted immature which weaken the pillars of democracy and the faith of people in democracy. Media has failed to function in a proper way .They start being more upfront about their loyalties, towards corporate and political leaders. The media houses have failed to distinguish when a sensational news becomes damaging towards national interests as it was evident during the 26/11 Mumbai attack and the reportage of the Gujarat riots. The news channels have modeled themselves as entertainment channels to increase their TRP’s. However a country without media is like a vehicle without wheels. This aim of this essay will be to investigate whether media is the fourth pillar…
INTRODUCTIONInternet is a short form of the technical term internetwork, the result of interconnecting computer networks with special gateways or routers. The Internet is also often referred to as the Net.The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP) to serve billions of users worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks, of local to global scope, that are linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries a vast range of information resources and services, such as the inter-linked hypertext documents of the World Wide Web and the infrastructure to support electronic mail.
Most traditional communications media including telephone, music, film, and television are reshaped or redefined by the Internet, giving birth to new services such as Voice over Internet Protocol and IPTV. Newspaper, book and other print publishing are adapting to Web site technology, or are reshaped into blogging and web feeds. The Internet has enabled or accelerated new forms of human interactions through instant messaging, Internet forums, and social networking. Online shopping has boomed both for major retail outlets and small artisans and traders. Business-to-business and financial services on the Internet affect supply chains across entire industries.
In a matter of very few years, the Internet has consolidated itself as a very powerful platform that has changed the way we do business, and the way we communicate. The Internet, as no other communication medium, has given an International or, if you prefer, a “Globalized” dimension to the world. Internet has become the Universal source of information for millions of people, at home, at school, and at work.
