Public Office is a Public Trust

The three words Public, Office and Trust carry great weight and imply sense of duty and moral responsibility. It is always a great privilege to hold an office, more so a public office and to render service honestly and fairly without fear or favor. The greater or higher is the office, the greater is the responsibility. The word office is synonymous with duty, with act of worship.

Once the Emperor of China, gave an official admiration to the officers of his government in remarkable words worth quoting that one who sincerely serves his country leaves fragrance of a good name to a hundred years, he who does not, leave a name that stinks for tens of thousands of years”. Trust and honor go together. He who is honest is always trusted and honored. And when honor is gone, man is dead.

The proposition : ‘Public office is a public trust’ is a worthy maxim, can be used as a touch-stone for judging actions of those who claim to be public servants or who talk high to serve the people, the community and the nation. The higher is the office, the greater is the authority or power derived from the office. Misuse of power or abuse of authority is not only breach of trust but also a public crime and a moral slur.

Territory, population and an organized government are the three essentials of a nation. The government runs the affairs of the state through a well knitted administration. Since earliest times there has been a division of subjects and creation of departments for dealing with the state subjects – the affairs of the state. In every form of government there has been division of subjects and creation and classification of the departments. The people who run the government and manage the departments, must be honest, responsible and dutiful. Then only they can be worthy of trust and real servants of the people.

The word ‘Administer’ has its roots in Latin word: ‘Ad’ and ‘Minister ate’ which means to minister, to manage, to serve. Thus, it implies that an administrator is a public servant. The three organs of the government i.e. the Legislature, the Executive and the Judiciary are responsible for making of policies and running the administration. In the present context an administrator is educated to realize that administration In a welfare state, is a harmonious combination of men and materials It consists in, proper channelization of available manpower, natural resources and development of human facilities. Administration or running of public office is a collective and not an individual activity.…

Arizona HOA Law – When Can Your Homeowners’ Association Foreclose?

Many Arizona homeowners are surprised to discovery that Arizona law does allow a homeowners’ association to foreclose on a lien against a homeowner in certain situations. This is not true in every state and was not the case in Arizona until fairly recent amendments to the Arizona Revised Statutes. In order to avoid losing your home to your homeowners’ association, you should understand what rights and obligations you have.

Fortunately, Arizona law does not allow a homeowners’ association to foreclose against a homeowner for unpaid fines. Instead, the law distinguishes between assessments and fines, allowing for foreclosure actions based on liens for unpaid assessments, but not fines.

Assessments are defined as the regular dues that a homeowners’ association charges to maintain the community. If a homeowner fails to pay such assessments, and if the assessments remain unpaid for one year or the unpaid amount exceeds $1,200, the HOA will have a lien on the home that can be foreclosed on. Under Arizona law, an HOA’s lien for unpaid assessments attaches automatically, and many homeowners don’t realize until its too late just how much trouble can result from their failure to pay.

Fines, as opposed to assessments, are the penalties that HOA’s charge for violations of the homeowners’ association’s CC&R’s or other governing documents. Common fines stem from a failure to maintain landscaping, leaving trash cans outside, and parking in prohibited areas. Unpaid fines do not result in an automatic lien and require that the HOA sue the homeowner in court and obtain a judgment before the lien can be recorded. Even after obtaining such a judgment and recording a lien, however, the HOA cannot seek to foreclose on the home for unpaid fines.

Notwithstanding the homeowners’ association’s right to foreclose on a lien for assessments it often doesn’t make sense for the HOA to proceed with such an action. Although HOA liens have priority over many obligations, such liens will generally be secondary to the primary mortgage on the home, so if there is not sufficient equity to pay off the mortgage and satisfy the lien, foreclosure may not be warranted. Homeowners should understand, however, that failing to pay assessments may result in the loss of their home, and that HOA’s may pursue foreclosure even when such an action is not financially merited.

The statutes governing the rights and obligations of homeowners and HOA’s are complicated, and homeowners facing collection action by their HOA should contact an experienced Arizona HOA lawyer as soon as possible. In many cases there are merited defenses, but they must be advanced before an adverse decision in rendered by a court.…

Minimization of Human Wants Is the Only Way to Cleanse the Society of All Kinds of Corruption

Mahatma Gandhi once said ” There is enough for everyone’s need, but not enough for a single person’s greed “. This statement is so easily applicable to today’s world. With time, humans have evolved and so have their demands. A few decades ago, people’s aim in life was simple – to have enough to fulfill their basic needs and live a content life. But in today’s modern era, people’s aim has become to earn more and more money, even though it may or may not bring happiness to them. Then people used to work hard to get two square meals a day but today everyone wants to go to five star hotels. With advancing technologies, our demands have increased rapidly, and as a result, today this world is full of greed. Everyone just wants to earn more and more money, no matter how.

All that the people see is money today, and then comes right and wrong. They will do anything for money, till they get the right price. If we put a torch on our life, we will see many occasions where our greed blindfolded us, making us do the things we regret and know are wrong. But moreover, this deadly greed has made our nation to suffer from a chronic disease called corruption, yes my friends a chronic disease, as it is slowly and slowly eating the soul of our nation.

Gone are the days when ‘honesty is the best policy’ was applicable to the daily life, this is the time of ‘ money is the best policy’. Greed has blindfolded our people in such a way that the real growth of our nation is completely hampered. Few centuries ago, India was the richest nation in the world, but today it ranks among most poor nations. The greed has taken the sense of judgement away from us. This world has now become more materialistic than ever, Today, if allowed, we all will happily trade our soul with money. Corruption is hampering India’s growth, but corruption takes place due to money. Money is needed to fulfill our greed, greediness arises as the people want more and more things today, So finally, we can say that human wantness is the main culprit behind corruption. So in order to stop the growing corruption, we need to decrease our wants. So friends, only and only we can stop corruption and glorify our nation again, its now or never……

Cambodia – Strengths and Weaknesses

Cambodia hasn’t been the hotbed of activity like its neighbors have for almost a half-millennium. Realizing its weakness and working to become a bigger tourist destination to help pull its citizens out of poverty, the country has taken great strides in improving its cities and amenities. Since, the biggest industries that the Cambodian economy relies on are construction, tourism, investment, and commodity trade. Cambodia continues to improve on its safety and international relations.

Cambodia is political member of such organizations as the United Nations and the World Bank. It also continues to improve the political side of their government by building diplomatic relations with many countries, hosting 20 embassies across the country. There are still border disputes that arise between the country and its neighbors on occasion. The biggest violence seems to erupt between the border of Thailand and Cambodia where as recently as April, 2009, there was an uprising about where the physical border lies. Both countries mobilized their militaries and 2 Thai soldiers fell as a result of the incident.

One of the Cambodia’s strengths has been the economic growth that’s rapidly on the rise. But the overall economic situation is still low when compared to its neighbors in other parts of Southeast Asia. This has also had the “trickle down” effect, allowing the average per capita wage to increase as well. Cambodia still has a great deal of its population in poverty, though. One of the big positive economic contributors, outside of the increased tourism, has been the reintroduction of more than 750 different types of rice courtesy of the International Rice Research Institute out of the Philippines. Another weakness affecting the economic growth and situation in Cambodia is the lack of education that many of the older generations possess. While education and fluency in reading and writing are rapidly increasing among its youth, the older citizens are still behind the times.

One of Cambodia’s strengths is the great culture due to its mix of modern globalization and various religions. A major strength is what the Cambodian Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts has done for the promotion and development of Cambodian culture. Another thing plaguing Cambodia is the effects of Civil War on its people. The median age is just 20.1 and UNICEF has identified the country as the third most land mined in the country. Cambodia is on the rise but it will take some time to help fully recover from its current state.…

The Law of Attraction and the Sweepstakes

This is an account of my own experience with “The Secret”! If you haven’t read the book by Rhonda Byrne yet I highly recommend it. It explains how the Universal Law of Attraction works! How we create our own reality by what we think feel.

“Like Attracts Like”

As soon as I read this book I began to put methods to test to make it work for me. I used it to start my own spiritual journey of awakening, to find my purpose. This attracted me to a lot of different programs about this subject. Not to mention a lot of self help information. As a result of all this I have grown tremendously as a person. I have definitely seen this law in action!

I thought all I had to do was “Desire exactly what I wanted” to the point of obsession (total focus). Believe it to be mine beyond a shadow of a doubt, Take “inspired action” towards it… & It would be mine!

I wrote my affirmations everyday… “My life is perfect now that I make ____$ a week. I am so Grateful for all this success! I went through my visualization exercises many times a day… (imagining my dream as if it were happening at that moment and Feeling it)! I have my “vision board” with all my goals & dreams & pictures of exactly what I want right beside my desk so I can Focus on them…I even started meditating! I Asked, Believed, & Took Inspired Action & then waited to Receive. I even had the exact date! Because my dream was to win the Publishers Clearing House $5000 a week for life sweepstakes! I had every thing all figured out how this would get me to my dreams! I was already writing the affirmation of that amount… & then all of a sudden, instead of it’s giveaway date in Feb. 2009, they were going to” Take an early look and give it away on Feb 29th 2008! I got so excited… I just knew the universe was rearranging things to grant my dream!

I began visualizing the Winning Moment on my porch! How we would spend the money… how I could use it to help people… (this was my biggest dream… to find a way I could give back in a way to help others) I was convinced to the point of obsession that this would be my answer to how I could give. I had no other idea of anything special I could do that would be My individual way I could accomplish this.

I figured my “inspired action” was entering everyday online, all places I could find to enter! I even watched a video clip of past winners on You Tube every day just to help Feel the win. I had the pictures out of the mailings sitting here on my desk & would imagine Dave Sayer at my door, then at the kitchen table to work out the details!

Fact to Fiction: The Brutal Truth about the Practice of Stoning

“Like humans void of soul or mind, they jeered and yelled as they went about selecting their most jagged stones.” – David Hearne, excerpt from Hulagu’s Web.

Stoning is a brutal and outdated practice that is kept alive only by Muslims under Sharia rule. Although it has been practiced since biblical times, every other culture has systematically ceased the practice in favor of more humane forms of punishment. The torturous sentence leaves the victim in agony. David Hearne, in his book Hulagu’s Web, shows us how painful it can be. “Terror ripped through her mind…then suddenly the first stone smashed into her…” (Hulagu’s Web, 64) The only solitude the punished has is that they will soon die.

Stoning is typically a punishment for adultery, although it can also be use for cases of incest and other sexual or “moral” crimes. Typically, a stoning victim is first wrapped in cloth and buried up to the waist for men, or up to the chest for females. Then the crowd is to throw stones at the victim. However, it is very important that, “… no stone should be thrown that should kill with the first or second blow, or so small as a pebble to do no injury to the condemned.” (Hulagu’s Web, 64) Stoning is a unique form of punishment in that there is no single executioner. The simplistic act of gathering the victim’s peers around him creates killers out of everyone.

Today, stoning is only practiced in Islamic culture in order to maintain the submission of its women and those in the lower cast. Only those impoverished or socially unimportant are punished by stoning. This barbaric act parallels those of the 4th century Theodosius who punished those who did not share his religious views. He ordered all non-Christian temples be destroyed and that all heathens be executed unless they convert. His decree now lives on in the hands of religious Islamic tyrants that now employ the brutal act of stoning. These acts of barbarism and violence far outweigh the moral transgression of those condemned.

Stoning has been in practice since biblical times. In the Old Testament, God is quoted as requiring stoning as a punishment for breaking one of the Ten Commandments, particularly for committing adultery. However, in the New Testament, Jesus is believed to have replaced that type of punishment for a more humane punishment. He is quoted as having challenged, “he that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.” This is why stoning has slowly been replaced with punishments that require less involvement of ones peers.

As we realize the impact of such a brutal death, we realize that we have no right to take part in killing another when we too have sinned. This imparting of sin on all those who partake in it is the very reason most cultures have abandoned the practice.

We already see a disintegration of the practice of stoning in Islamic culture. Only those under Sharia rule …

The Impact Of GSM Mobile Phones On Nigerians

Looking back to what life used to be for all of us before the GSM evolution about 6 years ago, it gives one a clear understanding of the positive impact GSM has on Nigerians. The way we used to communicate and do business have changed tremendously, the life of the common people has also been touched in different ways, it cuts across every facet of life, which is why I feel delighted to talk about some of the gains of the industry though it is not yet ‘ohuru’.

Some of the blessings of mobile communication in Nigeria has been directly or indirectly on the populace, the cooperate world, business world, and the society at large.

Job creation and employment is one of the good things that GSM brought to us, the sector is the highest sector that has employed both skilled and unskilled manpower in recent times. A great number of people especially the young graduates have been given employment in the GSM companies where they make a living and are useful to their families.

Apart from this direct employment, jobs have been created, where many people are self reliant doing their own GSM businesses, one of such business is making of calls and the sale of recharge cards to GSM users. This business is popularly known as business centers or call centers. Looking around the cities, towns and even villages one will hardly walk about two poles without seeing a business center mainly characterized by the use of umbrellas, kiosks and even shops painted with the colors of the mobile service providers. It is easy to start because it requires little start up capital, in fact all you need is your umbrella as a shade, a stool, a table and your handset loaded with calling credit of any amount say #1000, and you have started. This has provided a means of livelihood for many people who would have been unemployed; some have also learnt the technical aspect of the business by repairing and fixing of mobile phones in their repair shops.

Sales of GSM phones and its accessories are big business, it is also very profitable here in Nigeria, and I consider it the biggest gain of this revolution. It has really provided affluence for many who are in the business big time. The return on investment is superb. Having the statistics that over 16 million handsets have been sold so far, 32.2 million mobile lines in Nigeria now, with the number of mobile lines increasing to 43 million within the first part of the year and a projection of about 76 million mobile lines come 2011, all these are indicators of how the market is and where it is going. Many people have actually tapped into this boom. This business is very lucrative. If you have ever visited the Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos, You will understand the veracity of the statistics and research given above, the market is said to be the largest phone market in Africa.

Benefits Of Limited Government

While Conservatives and Liberals take shots at each other, a uniquely American political philosophy has been slowly gaining more strength. Libertarianism has grasped the imagination of an increasing number of people. As the Government encroaches on the liberties of more and more people, Libertarianism is where many people are turning for answers. What exactly are the advantages to the limited and restricted government philosophies espoused by Libertarians?

Its been said that many people’s perspective on history is pretty much focused around the time of their lives. Add in the dumbing down of the public education system and the ideas and debates of the Founding Fathers are not a topic many people are familiar with. The U.S. Constitution,the Federalist Papers and the arguments that raged around their conception are not well known by most people. Yet the principles and ideas that were eventually embraced following these debates gave birth to not only the most free and powerful nation on earth but also the most benevolent and generous.

In a time of increasing political unrest its important to realize what makes the United States so great. With so much information flowing through our society it’s important to read and study as much as possible. Having and accepting more responsibility for our actions is a primary philosophy for Libertarians and results in a stronger informed citizen. The less government involvement in the affairs of its citizens leads to more freedom to succeed or fail. Writings by F.A. Hayek and Milton Freidman discuss how less involvement by the government leads not only to a more reliant, informed and free citizen but also a stronger and vibrant economy.

It’s important people can see how we came about the many rights we enjoy today, how unique they are and most importantly how fragile they can be. Reading the Federalist papers and the Anti-Federalist Papers are excellent ways to understand the formation and relationship of citizens with their government. In the United States the Founding Fathers had a strong suspicion of governments turning to tyranny and therefore put many restrictions on the U.S. government. This restricted or limited approach to government has not only lead to U.S. citizens enjoying an unprecedented amount of freedom and prosperity, but it has also enabled the U.S. to be a force for good in the world.

Free speech, the right to assemble and private property are just a few of the rights enjoyed by Americans that are not enjoyed by a large chunk of the world. Throughout the world countries with more freedom have frequently been helped by the U.S.A. Amazingly, today in the U.S. and other parts of the world individual and economic liberties are under assault. The Cato Institute, Heritage Foundation and numerous other resources are available to help people not only learn the importance of the American experience but also to move forward in regaining the rights we’ve lost and retaining the ones we still have.…
