Bobby's Will - as requested by MrsBobbyJamesEwing. I didn't like this season as much, but it was still good. It was too soft at times. The end to this scene is great though, when JR and Pam look at eachother. Don't forget to watch the NEW Dallas series coming June 13th on TNT (US) and on BRAVO (Canada).

Star Wars: The Last Forcebender
The way I see it, I'm 3 months ahead of schedule on this. Two corrections: 1. I said the Master Code-breaker could not have known about the transport ships fleeing when they did. This is just wrong. He heard Poe yelling about them on a call to Finn/Rose. 2. "Training [Kylo] doesn't even come up." Ackshully, Snoke considers the decapitation of Rey as completing Kylo's "training." Yeah, okay.

Now that Bush is gone and capitalism has taken a beating, can Chavez's socialist revolution last? 'Savage, irrational inequality' - Chavez describes capitalism to a captivated crowd. The poor see Chavez as a saint and everywhere he goes red-shirted 'Chavistas follow. But his popularity has always depended upon healthy capitalism. 'High oil prices have allowed Chavez to mask the fact that he has destroyed the economy' says one economist. Whilst the world was buying oil at record prices, Chavez could fund his social programs even as the private sector crumbled. Almost every company he's nationalised has turned into a loss maker and as the recession continues, the extent of Venezuela's problems are exposed. 'Since Chavez came to power, the murder rate has doubled to more than 100 a week' reveals our reporter. Now that the opposition has won control of Caracas in municipal elections, Chavez is showing himself increasingly hostile to cooperation. 'More than 30 hooded men with guns, pistols and machine guns attacked the offices where I should be working as Mayor' says opposition leader Ledezma. Just as unbridled greed has undermined capitalism, Chavez's autocratic socialism is jeopardising the benefits of his revolution.

How a handful of tech companies control billions of minds every day | Tristan Harris
A handful of people working at a handful of tech companies steer the thoughts of billions of people every day, says design thinker Tristan Harris. From Facebook notifications to Snapstreaks to YouTube autoplays, they're all competing for one thing: your attention. Harris shares how these companies prey on our psychology for their own profit and calls for a design renaissance in which our tech instead encourages us to live out the timeline we want.

God's Plan for Salvation - Part 2 - The Harmony of the New Birth with the Gospel
Thank you for waiting patiently for this Part 2 in my series God's plan for the Salvation of the human soul. In part two, I do a quick 5 minute re-cap on what was discussed in Part one. Then I take a deeper look at God's Sovereignty - an attribute you cannot afford NOT to embrace in it's fullness. I discuss the reasons for this in the re-cap section before I pick up the narration I did about a month ago. The new Birth is prophesied in the Old Testament in Ezekiel Chapter 37, also known as the "Dry Bones" chapter. Here we are told how God commands Ezekiel to prophesy over a valley of dry bones, and by doing so, they are brought to life, which is a type and shadow of things to come, and a picture of the raising to life of the dead human soul by the Holy Spirit. "The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones, And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry. And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest. Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD. Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD. So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them. Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live. So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts. Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel. And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves, And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the LORD. (Ezekiel 37:1-14) Another passage in Ezekiel is Chapter 36:24-26, where we are told the following: "For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land. Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you. A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh." (Ezekiel 36:24-26) The fullfillment of this prophesy is adequately discussed in Titus 3:4-8a "But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. This is a faithful saying...." (Titus 3:4-8a) Once the human soul has been brought to life by God Himself (quickened), the Gospel can be preached and heard and understood by those who were foreordained unto eternal life in Christ Jesus before the foundation of the world. Here is the Gospel: "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures..." (1 Corinthians 15:1-4) The Holy Spirit SEALS that person into Christ by indwelling the Believer. (Ephesians 1:13 and 2 Corinthians 1:21-22) "For the gifts and the calling of God are IRREVOCABLE." (Romans 11:29)

Howard Ain, Troubleshooter: New Power Plant Rules
CINCINNATI (Howard Ain) -- President Obama proposed new rules to cut emissions at electric power plants in an effort to curb global warming Monday. This cutback in greenhouse gases can affect our utility rates. The new limits on greenhouse gas emissions will give states until mid-2018, in some circumstances, to determine how they'll reach their targets. This delay, until after President Obama leaves office, raises questions about the fate of the proposed legislation. The rules to cut back carbon emissions from power plants are expected to lead to the closing of coal-fired electric generating plants. Plants like Duke Energy's Beckjord facility, which is slated to close by next year due to existing environmental regulations. Duke has retired or has announced retirement of nearly 6,800 megawatts of older coal and large oil-fired generation plants. A Duke spokeswoman says it's too soon to say what effect these new regulations would have on electric rates. But, we're already seeing rates go up in anticipation of the new regulations. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce predicts, if enacted, the new rules would lead to an increase in electric rates totaling 17 billion dollars a year over the next 16 years. This, because it predicts the rules could force the closure of 114,000 megawatts of coal plants over that time. Environmental Protection Agency Administrator, Gina McCarthy, says the rules are needed to cutback on greenhouse gases which, she says, has led to climate change. Gina McCarthy, "In 2030 when the states meet their final goals it will result in 30% less carbon pollution from the power sector across the United States in comparison to 2005 levels." Just to put that in perspective, that's as if they cancelled out all the annual carbon pollution from 2/3 of the cars and trucks in America. At this point, the nation has 600 coal-fired plants which still produce 39-percent of the nation's energy. Republicans in Congress are vowing to challenge the President's emissions plan saying it will cost jobs. Some utility companies have been given approval to add fees to cover the additional cost of generating electricity. Duke Energy filed its own request for such a fee on Thursday. If approved, next year you'd see a small increase in Duke's electric bills in the winter and a small decrease in summer. But again, that has to be approved.

Watch the Video and then go Sign Up at: http://bodyfxprelaunch.com/TrinityFX An essay on BodyFX Pre Launch Man's greatest achievement? Perhaps not, but can you afford not to read on when I am about to tell you about BodyFX Pre Launch? Underestimate BodyFX Pre Launch at your peril. Until recently considered taboo amongst polite society, there are just not enough blues songs written about BodyFX Pre Launch. Since it was first compared to antidisestablishmentarianism much has been said concerning BodyFX Pre Launch by the upper echelons of progressive service sector organisations, trapped by their infamous history. In the light of this I will break down the issues in order to give each of them the thought that they fully deserve Social Factors Interweaving social trends form a strong net in which we are all trapped. When Thucictholous said 'people only know one thing' [1] he globalised an issue which had remained buried in the hearts of our ancestors for centuries. Much has been said about the influence of the media on BodyFX Pre Launch. Observers claim it raises the question 'why?' Status, Security, Fame - BodyFX Pre Launch, all revolve around this 'golden fleece'. It has been said that the one thing in society which could survive a nuclear attack is BodyFX Pre Launch. This is incorrect, actually cockroaches are the only thing which can survive a nuclear attack. Economic Factors The dictionary defines economics as 'the social science concerned with the production, distribution, exchange, and consumption of goods and services'. Of course, BodyFX Pre Launch fits perfectly into the Maiden-Tuesday-Lending model, making allowances for recent changes in interest rates. Oil Prices BodyFX Pre Launch Clearly the graphs demonstrates a strong correlation. Why is this? Well oil prices plays in increasingly important role in the market economy. Supply Side Economic Tax Cuts Tax deductions could turn out to be a risky tactic. Political Factors Machiavellian politics is rife. Are our leaders justified in pursuing and maintaining political power? Placing theory on the scales of justice and weighing it against practice can produce similar results to contrasting chalk and cheese. To quote the famous political Noah Woodpecker 'Taking a walk across hot coals will inevitably hurt your feet.' [2] Considered by many to be one of the 'Founding Fathers' of BodyFX Pre Launch, his words cannot be over-looked. To paraphrase, the quote is saying 'BodyFX Pre Launch wins votes.' Simple as that. One thing's certain. The Human species liberally desires BodyFX Pre Launch, and what's more human than politics? Conclusion We can conclude that the BodyFX Pre Launch has, and will continue to be a major building block for the world in which we live. It collaborates successfully, provides financial security and is always fashionably late. I will leave the last word to the famous Christina Cruise: 'I would say without a shadow of a doubt: BodyFX Pre Launch ROCKS!!!

Focus on Funds: A View of the Success of the US Retirement System
The US retirement system is working well for American households—through a combination of Social Security and personal savings. In the September 15, 2017, edition of Focus on Funds, ICI Senior Economist Peter Brady discusses the important role of Social Security in US retirement savings. For more information, visit https://www.ici.org/retirement _____________________________ Stephanie Ortbals-Tibbs, ICI director, media relations: Does the US need a mandatory retirement savings system? Well, actually, ICI Senior Economist Pete Brady reminds me [that] we have one—it’s called Social Security. Here’s the conversation that I recently had with Pete offering his analysis on how the system is laid out. Peter Brady, ICI senior economist: There are several proposals out there to institute a mandatory retirement plan. What these proposals seem to miss is that the US already has a mandatory plan—it’s called Social Security. Essentially, the US retirement system has two primary components: a mandatory component, which ensures a minimum level of income for all retirees, and then, a fully voluntary component, where workers can set aside on a tax-deferred basis some of their compensation for retirement. Ortbals-Tibbs: Pete, you’re an analytical guy. What do you think the metrics would look like to justify the addition of a second mandatory system? Brady: A second mandatory system would be justified if two criteria were met. The first criterion would be that the current system isn’t working. The second one would be that there is no way to fix the current mandatory system to solve the problem. Where I part company from those who would like a second mandatory system is that I think the evidence shows that the current system is working very well. And secondly, I think the way to repair the mandatory portion of the system is to put Social Security on sound financial footing, not create a whole new plan. Ortbals-Tibbs: So, what’s behind this common misperception that the current retirement system isn’t working? Brady: I think there’s two primary reasons why people are very accepting of arguments that the system isn’t working. First, I think the importance of Social Security, which really provides a full pension for lower-income individuals and substantial resources to higher-income individuals, is seldom appreciated. And second, the official statistics, on both the share of workers who participate in a pension and the share of retirees who have income from pensions, understate the importance of these plans. Ortbals-Tibbs: What does the evidence look like to demonstrate that the system is working? Brady: Well, here’s one piece of evidence: Most people have resources from employer plans by the time they hit retirement. Federal Reserve board data show that 81 percent of working households aged 55 to 64 either have benefits in a DB plan, assets in a DC plan or an IRA, or both. Furthermore, other research, including my own research using tax data, show that these resources are not just widespread, but they’re substantial. On average, they’re of about the same magnitude as Social Security benefits for middle-income people, and even more valuable than Social Security benefits for the top 40 percent. Ortbals-Tibbs: Pete, a lot of people would listen to this and say, “Wait a minute. Are you saying that there’s no problem with our current system?” Brady: Not at all. There will certainly be some individuals who hit retirement and aren’t prepared, but the most careful analysis shows that two-thirds to five-sixths of the population actually are prepared for retirement. The idea of a widespread shortfall obscures the fact that the system actually is working for the vast majority of the people, and also deflects attention from those who are actually at risk, such as those who leave work because of an illness, or have a spotty work history throughout their working years.

IMF cuts world growth outlook from 3.6% to 3.4%
The International Monetary Fund cut its world growth outlook, saying that the global economy will expand 3.4 percent this year, down from a projected 3.6 percent in October. The fund also cut its forecast for growth in 2017 to 3.6 percent, down from 3.8 percent three months ago.In a quarterly update to its World Economic Outlook, it justified the change saying a commodities slump and political gridlock pushing Brazil deeper into recession, plunging oil prices destabilizing Mideast crude producers, and a rising dollar curbing U.S. prospects were the main concerns.

Tea, Taxes, and The American Revolution: Crash Course World History #28

John goes over the issues and events that precipitated rebellion in Britain's American colonies, and he also explores the ideas that laid the groundwork for the new American democracy. Find out how the tax bill from the Seven Years War fomented an uprising, how the Enlightenment influenced the Founding Fathers, and who were the winners and losers in this conflict.(hint: many of the people living in the Colonies ended up losers) The Revolution purportedly brought freedom and equality to the Thirteen Colonies, but they weren't equally distributed. Also, you'll learn about America's love affair with commemorative ceramics and what happens when rich white guys take the reins from reins white guys, and put together a society of, by, and for rich white guys.

The French Revolution: Crash Course World History #29
In which John Green examines the French Revolution, and gets into how and why it differed from the American Revolution. Was it the serial authoritarian regimes? The guillotine? The Reign of Terror? All of this and more contributed to the French Revolution not being quite as revolutionary as it could have been. France endured multiple constitutions, the heads of heads of state literally rolled, and then they ended up with a megalomaniacal little emperor by the name of Napoleon. But how did all of this change the world, and how did it lead to other, more successful revolutions around the world? Watch this video and find out.

And Francis Chan provides powerful teaching from Scripture and helps teens understand the core of our Christian faith.

PEOPLE OUTRAGED! The "Muslim Ban" Chaos And Confusion Explained
First thing, I want to send my best wishes to those affected by the tragedy in Quebec. It was originally supposed to be my final story today (along with several other topics), but then the show ran long, and I had to leave early to go to a doctor appointment. Secondly, I want to say again how much I appreciate the core audience who are here to listen, take part, and have their personal views tested. Not many places like that. I know there will always be a pass through minority that will spam dislike me because I agree with a point made by the left or a point made by the right, but I find its more important to not shy away from opinion as long as I give you facts first. Its okay if we have different opinions.

Stossel: What Trump's Court Pick Means for Liberty
Hearings begin today for President Trump's Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh. John Stossel wonders whether Kavanaugh will be good for liberty. --------- Subscribe to our YouTube channel: http://youtube.com/reasontv Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Reason.Magaz... Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/reason Subscribe to our podcast at iTunes: https://goo.gl/az3a7a Reason is the planet's leading source of news, politics, and culture from a libertarian perspective. Go to reason.com for a point of view you won't get from legacy media and old left-right opinion magazines. --------- Libertarians are right to worry. Kavanaugh has shown deference to government when it spies on people. In one case, Kavanaugh allowed the government's "metadata collection program", in which the government stored phone data on millions of Americans. Kavanaugh even went out of his way give comments on that case, saying the metadata program "serves a critically important special need—preventing terrorist attacks on the United States." But a government report later found that: "we are aware of no instance in which the program directly contributed to ... disruption of a terrorist attack." Yes, says Ilya Shaprio, the CATO Institute's senior fellow in constitutional studies, Kavanaugh disagrees with libertarians on national security. But on just about every other issue, Kavanaugh would likely advance liberty. Shapiro notes that Kavanaugh is one of the best judges in the country at opposing government regulation on individuals and companies. As a judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit, Kavanaugh tried to strike down lots of regulations: net neutrality, EPA admissions rules, and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. He didn’t always succeed, but he argued that they were all bureaucratic overreaches. Shapiro tells Stossel that Kavanaugh would also likely overturn the "Kelo" eminent domain decision, which allowed governments to take private property for nearly any reason. Kavanaugh is also good on gun rights. Citing the 2nd Amendment, he tried to overturn a DC ban on all semi-automatic rifles. The left fears Kavanaugh mostly for other reasons. Protestors shout "hell no, Kavanaugh" at rallies. Senator Kristen Gillibrand warns: "What’s at stake is freedom for LGBTQ Americans, for equal rights, for civil rights." Senator Bernie Sanders warns he would "tell women they don’t have the constitutional right to control their own bodies." But their biggest fears are misplaced, Shaprio tells Stossel. Kavanaugh is unlikely to change rulings on Roe v. Wade and gay marriage, because he and Chief Justice John Roberts respect precedent, especially if changing it would disrupt people's lives. The left can breathe easier on those things, says Shapiro, but he notes that Kavanaugh will likely overturn one thing that is dear to the left: affirmative action. "Kavanaugh could provide the 5th vote to overturn that 40-year-old experiment with using racial preferences to promote some kind of nebulous diversity." Should libertarians be happy with Kavanaugh overall, Stossel asks? “Definitely," Shapiro says. "He’s not going to agree with us all the time, certainly. But no judges or justices do." The views expressed in this video are solely those of John Stossel; his independent production company, Stossel Productions; and the people he interviews.

Holland America's upgraded room
Final update (July 20): Yesterday afternoon I wrote an email to the Office of the President of Holland America to explain my perspective on this. I figured this thing blowing up as much as it did got the upper management’s attention, so I explained how I felt the public’s reaction to this was justified. This morning, we had a face-to-face with the the Hotel Director and Guest Relations manager. They empathized with our situation, apologized to us, said (to paraphrase) that we were totally fair in our calling them out. Evidently someone onboard didn’t make it back to the ship in Norway, so they moved us to their room. It’s got a balcony, and is on the other end of the ship. We’re grateful to that, since we were uncomfortable back in our old room. We didn’t ask for a refund at any point here, but as I said earlier they refunded our upgrade fee anyway. They also provided us both with free drink vouchers, which we’ll definitely need after all this. Obviously I didn’t anticipate this thing going viral in the middle of our trip, but you never know with Reddit. It’s sad it takes a viral video to get companies’ attention sometimes. Thanks to everyone who tweeted and messaged them. I saw lots of others saying they got the same poor response that we initially did from HAL. Hopefully they’ll improve. All I can say is that we’re good now, and we’re gonna go enjoy our trip. Edit 2 (July 19): We just got back to our room. There's a towel swan display and some rose petals on the bed, along with a bottle of champagne. Lots of photos from the fjords to sort through. What an astounding country this is. Edit: Okay we are up. I'm just going to list a few facts for you all: 1. Around 9:30 last night, our room phone rang and it was the head of guest services. It was a very quick call but long story short, he said they were aware of the video and were engaged with discussions internally regarding how to handle it. I know very little else about their reaction to this. 2. They are refunding our $600 upgrade and comping us a nice dinner on the ship. They said they have something else in mind but are still discussing. I do not know what that means. 3. They can't for sure say whether or not the maintenance outside our window will continue, although it appears that there is still plenty of work to do as far as I can tell, although that's just my opinion. 4. They can't move us because the ship is full, which I understand. 5. We have a plan to go do a long tour of Norway today so we'll be off the ship for the night, returning tomorrow. 6. This has not ruined our trip. We intend to have a blast and have another 2 weeks to do so. Original description: This is our view for our wonderful European cruise. The crew said they will be working during the day the entire time. Thanks for telling us when you up charged us $600 extra for the window guys.

http://tombradleyblog.com What is it? What is the personal development secret to success in network marketing? The company? The product? The system you use? The right self improvement mentor? It can certainly be confusing when every squeeze page and sales letter tells you that product, that CD, that webinar is what you need to turn the corner and make it big in a home based business. What separates you from "THEM"? What magic thing did they do to have business success? What secret aren't they sharing. You hear over and over that "97% of Network Marketers Fail". But that really isn't true. Truth is most just quit. They give up. Maybe at the beginning. Maybe in sight of the promised land. But they give up. Some try again and some never come back. You may be able to save time and money if you know that what really separates the super-successful from the rest of us. It's persistence. Most companies have a simple plan. Retail, recruit and retain. The great Jim Rohn taught it best by saying that the lowliest inexperienced distributor could outsell anyone by simply knowing his ratios and doing more. What can you do incorporate persistence into your personal philosophy? Ultimately, persistence is born of the inspiration to reach your goal. Let us help you find your sweet spot in MLM.

John MacArthur: The Nonnegotiable Gospel
Martin Luther’s rediscovery of the doctrine of justification by faith alone was prompted by his need to be found righteous in the sight of God. His “evangelical breakthrough” forced him to evaluate his standing before God as well as confront moral and theological corruption in the church. This session explains why the doctrine of justification by faith alone is central to the message of the gospel now and in the future. It considers what challenges to this central element of the gospel Christians who desire to see a new reformation may face.

Internal Control: Class Questions - Review 2
In this video, 3.05 – Internal Control – Review 2, learn more internal control auditing basics as Roger Phlipp, CPA, CGMA, continues the review by going over more internal control multiple-choice questions. The first question requires finding an action that is not part of an auditor’s assessment of control risk and risk of material misstatement. It tests understanding of the steps of audit – audit planning, internal control, substantive testing, and audit report. The second question requires understanding the reasons why an auditor would choose to perform tests of controls after obtaining an understanding of internal control and assessing the risk of material misstatement. The third question involves techniques an auditor would use to assess control risk and risk of material misstatement – remember, an auditor would test ARCC, or segregation of the duties of authorizing, recording, custody and comparison, by doing RIIO – re-performance, inquiry, inspection, and observation. The larger point that Roger emphasizes is that during the internal control phase, an auditor is not looking at dollar amounts but at frequency or percentages. The next question concerns inherent limitations of the potential effectiveness of a company’s internal controls, and here Roger provides the handy acronym COCO for categorizing inherent risk due to fraud or error. And lastly, the final question explores the concept of reasonable assurance as it applies to the internal control phase of an audit.

Visit our Professor Resource Center: https://www.rogercpareview.com/professor-resource-center/ Video Transcript Sneak Peek: Number four. Which of the following is not a step in an auditor's assessment of control risk or RMM? So, which of the following is not a step in the auditor's assessment? Evaluate the effectiveness of internal control with T of C. Is Test of Controls part of...? Yes, B, obtain an understanding of the entity's information system and control environment. Understanding environment, yes. C, perform Test of Details of transactions to detect material misstatements? We just learned the term "Test of Details", which we cover in Audit Evidence. Test of Details is substantive testing. We're not gonna do that until substantive testing. This is internal control. So, thinking of the chart that we had earlier where we said plan the audit, then go through internal control, then do substantive testing, then draft the audit report. We're not there yet. Consider whether controls have a pervasive effect on the financial statement. Pervasive, yes, we need to consider that. Best answer, C, 'cause which of the following is not a step. Again, keyword, not. That means one is not, three are. Number five, after obtaining an understanding of internal control and assessing risk of material misstatement, the auditor decided to perform tests of controls. The auditor most likely decided what? That means we did this, we did this, we did this, we did this, and we said do we think we can rely? Yes, we'll do the combined approach. We're gonna go ahead and do T of C. Why would we normally do this? Why would we say this? Because we think there are controls, we think they're going to be reliable, cost benefit. That's why we're gonna do it. A, it would be efficient to perform T of C that would result in a reduction in planned substantive tests, true. There's no additional evidence to support a... If there's no evidence, we're not gonna test it. C, an increase in the assessed level of RMM is justified? No, no, no. A decrease. If it was an increase, we would do more substantive testing and less Test of Controls. D, there were many internal control weaknesses that could allow misstatements to enter the system. If there's a lot of weaknesses, then we're not gonna rely. We're not gonna do T of C. So, the best answer, the basically, when would we do T of C? Answer A. Number six, in assessing the risk material misstatement control risk, an auditor ordinarily selects from a variety of techniques, including... So, what are we gonna test for? We're gonna test ARCC by looking at RIIO, so performance, inquiry, inspection, observation. Remember, we're not looking at dollars. We're looking at frequency or percentages.

If you have never heard this testimony from beginning to end, be HIGHLY ENCOURAGED to do so!: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UYgeEUQknYA Some people unfortunately can have such a distorted perception of Christianity these days and it is our desire to try to help people get focused on THIS supernatural reality: JESUS CHRIST TRANSFORMS LIVES. We do this by simply giving greater exposure to Christians testifying of how Jesus Christ has gloriously transformed THEM in various ways ... as they have chosen to place their trust in HIM. Make no mistake -- none of the people on these Precious Testimonies Cable TV Broadcasts: ( http://www.precious-testimonies.com/General/p-t/PreciousTestimoniesTapeNumbers.htm ) are PERFECT. Yet the ONE they have chosen to place their trust in to have their sins forgiven and be cleansed from them so they are in right-standing with God IS perfect. And everyone is eligible to have their sins forgiven and be cleansed from them so they can be in right-standing with God if they want. It makes no difference what they have done in the past or are doing currently. Jesus Christ will forgive them if they will only ask Him to and are serious in meaning business with Him. (SERIOUSLY willing to let Him be LORD of their life, in other words). Bottom line, and admittedly, it’s HARD to believe at first … but God will forgive us of all of our PAST sins, PRESENT sins, and any sins we may commit in the FUTURE. 1 John 1:9 is the believer’s assurance. (Satan does NOT want believers BELIEVING this – especially the issue of FUTURE sins totally forgiven by Him when we ask God for forgiveness for them. Satan knows that NONE of us truly born again Christians will reach the state of total sinless perfection prior to going to heaven. We’ll be giving into temptation to sin from time to time until our heart stops, [though hopefully LESS than when we first get born again]. Yet when we sin in the future, there is every bit as much forgiveness for those sins when we ask for it than there is forgiveness for our sins of the past and even those of the present. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh how Satan doesn’t want people getting this incredible REVELATION OF TRUTH!). No one has to "be good enough" to have their sins forgiven either - nor can one be so "bad" - thinking Jesus Christ could not nor would not want to forgive them. Jesus Christ has never searched out for those who are "good enough" nor "worthy enough" before they are qualified to have their sins forgiven. Who He IS looking for are people who are HUMBLE ENOUGH to admit that they are selfish sinners against God and they desire a Savior who can and wants to forgive them of their sins and CLEANSE them from all unrighteousness so that they can have complete, 100% assurance that when they die, (complete assurance even NOW as WELL!) heaven will be their immediate destiny when they die where God dwells and His holy angels dwell and all the forgiven of their sins born again saints who have died dwells ... and NO evil dwells there like it does on this planet. None of us know when our heart will stop beating, do we? Be HIGHLY encouraged to make peace with God the Father through Jesus Christ this very moment. BE ASSURED OF WHERE YOU’LL SPEND ETERNITY! Pray and tell Jesus you are sorry for your sins against God the Father. Ask Him to save you from your sins. Daily put Him FIRST in everything you think, say and do. As soon as possible, be water baptized, and ask Jesus to fill you with the Holy Spirit so you can be empowered by the Holy Spirit to enjoy reading the New Testament Bible (God's LATEST covenant Word to the human race), and obey the commands God has recorded for followers of Jesus Christ to obey for your OWN good). Join with other dedicated Christian believers who can help answer the many questions you probably have, and who will pray for and encourage you. Asking Jesus Christ to be your personal Savior, and making Him Lord of your life is THE WISEST DECISION YOU WILL EVER MAKE. It will bring you eternal joyous rewards (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NyNYs4Cs6Pc ) ... and God will be so pleased that you have NOT wasted the eternal purposes God has planned for you! God never created you to be a wasted creation of His ( http://www.precious-testimonies.com/Exhortations/f-j/HellWillBeFullOfWastedCreations.htm ) - never forget that - but it is up to YOU to let Him work in your life - daily. He won't force you. He must always be invited. (Intimate relationship is never sustained indefinitely with another person without effort; nor so with God. It requires ACTIVE pursuit of the most special person in your life. God desires YOUR active pursuit of Him more than anything else in your life. He desires FIRST place - never second. And in your so doing ... NO ONE to Him is more desirable than YOU! He so eagerly desires you to come to that realization, dear one. He truly does. This life is your STARTING point with your loving Creator that will last for eternity.)

Gender Pay Gap - MGTOW
"Hi Sandman, I just came across an article that you could use on one of your videos and it really upset me. It seems that only when things affect women are there laws to be changed. What about men having to register for a draft but women don't, but women still get to vote? What about women having lower standards in the military and police force but still get paid the same as men? What about the law that women serve less time in jail for the same crimes as men? How insidious is that? What about men usually having no other option but to work? But women have option to have a beta man provider to have a husband and she can be a stay at home house wife. But we live in a society that now requires equal pay for equal work, to equal pay for "substantially similar" work. These laws are always in favor of women. It just doesn't make sense that these other issues that affect men none of the laws are being changed. Thank you Sandman." Well Ryan thanks for the donation and sharing the article called "California bill would close 'insidious' wage gap between men and women." Apparently in this west coast state the government wants to narrow the wage gap between employees that have quote unquote: "Substantially similar" work. The plan is to allow female employers free to ask and talk about the pay that male employees receive with their bosses but the law will protect females from retaliation from the employers. According to the article: "The law would not require employers to share their salary data to help women compare their salaries to their male counterparts if they ask for it. But some women are already complaining and saying that they want the data without having to ask. What they are asking for is the right to size up the men at work and compare their pay to what they receive. If this happens I hope women also learn to count because they will see that their male counterparts probably put in far more overtime. But women don't see overtime they only see money. Money means status for women and that's really what they want. So when they see that men get paid more then women they think men have more status then women so it makes women angry. They don't care if a man works sixty hours a week versus their forty hours. The gender pay gap should be changed to the status pay gap because that's really what it's about. When women say they want to get paid the same amount of money as a man for a particular job what they really want is for all jobs to pay the same regardless of how much effort the individual employee makes. This has been tried in communist Russia and eventually that system failed. We can't pay everyone the same amount of money for different amounts of labor. That's what women are saying when they don't like the gender pay gap. Women are saying they want the privileges, titles, status and money bestowed upon men but without the responsibilities and duties associated with those unearned rewards. But it won't matter because the pay gap will always exist. Men will always invent new ways of doing things and women are mostly stuck emulating what already exists.

SOUNDBITE: (English) Dan Akerson CEO of General Motors: "We are more convinced than ever that GM (General Motors) must have a strong presence in Europe generally but particularly, especially here in Germany. From our board discussions I am pleased to announce the following today: one, that GM remains fully supportive of the OPEL turn around plan and its objective to break even by mid-decade." 6. Cutaway of camera crew 7. SOUNDBITE: (English) Dan Akerson CEO of General Motors: "I am also pleased to announce that General Motors will invest 4 billion euros in our European operations between now and 2016 and that's so that we can deliver world class vehicles and improve our market share in Europe." 8. Employees looking on from balconies in atrium 9. GM executives unveil chunk of Berlin wall STORYLINE: General Motors' top executives have reaffirmed their commitment to Opel, the U.S. auto group's lossmaking European subsidiary, promising to invest another 4 billion euros (5.2 billion US dollars) in the company. GM Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson said at a news conference held at the company's German headquarters on Wednesday that GM supported the Opel turnaround plan, saying it "must have a strong presence in Europe and especially here in Germany." Akerson added that GM had approved the 4 billion euro investment in Europe by 2016 but did not announce any new plant closures or other specific measures to improve earnings. The chief executive and the GM board of directors had travelled to Germany to discuss the company's plan to reverse years of losses. GM had tried to sell Opel in 2009 as the U.S. car giant headed into bankruptcy restructuring - but it later decided to keep it. Hundreds of Opel employees packed walkways overlooking the atrium at the Opel headquarters. Afterwards, the executives unveiled a concrete chunk from the Berlin Wall in front of the headquarters building. The company is plagued by fierce competition and weak pricing power in a crowded market for less expensive cars in Europe. The debt crisis in countries that use the euro currency has seen auto sales plummet across Europe. Opel plans to introduce 23 new models and 13 new engines through 2016 and develop a small car platform with French partner PSA Peugeot Citroen. The company is set to close its plant in Bochum by the end of 2014 after employees rejected a restructuring agreement.

POTUS Trump - The People's Hail Mary   Accusers, Iran, Israel, Harpazo! Look Up HE IS COMING
POTUS Trump - The People's Hail Mary Accusers, Iran, Israel, Harpazo! Look Up HE IS COMING Colossians 3:1-4 Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life,appears, then you also will appear with him in glory. 1 Thessalonians 4:16 For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 1 Corinthians 15:51-58 Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.” “Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?” The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.

(Don't Believe) Home Builder Reviews
Do Not listen to the Home Builder Reviews that people write online. In this video, I talk about how a percentage of home builder reviews are not accurate. Contact me at http://www.tampa2enjoy.com/contact-us/ Of course, I do not mean to say a lot of builder reviews are not accurate or justified. Too many people get mad at the builder and go online and bash the builder. Keep in mind that you are hearing only one side of the story. One thing you may want to do is knock on some door of homeowners that purchased through the builder and hear what they have to say. Instead of listening to someone that bought a new home in another state or city. You can also check out the BBB by going to https://www.bbb.org/en/us.

Pinoy Memories 36
Pinoy Memories - Philippine President Marcos explains his "New Society" plan for the ordinary Filipino since declaring Martial Law through-out the nation on September 21, 1972. Martial law and the New Society: Proclamation of martial law - The spate of bombings and subversive activities led President Marcos to declare that "there is throughout the land a state of anarchy and lawlessness, chaos and disorder, turmoil and destruction of a magnitude equivalent to an actual war between the forces of our duly constituted government and the New People's Army and their satellite organizations...and that public order and safety and security of the nation demand that immediate, swift, decisive and effective action be taken to protect and insure the peace, order and security of the country and its population and to maintain the authority of the government." On September 21, 1972 President Marcos issued Presidential Proclamation No. 1081 placing the entire country under martial law but it was announced only two days later. In proclaiming martial law, President Marcos assured the public that "the proclamation of martial law is not a military takeover" and that civilian government still functions. Initial measures - In his first address to the nation after issuing Proclamation No. 1081, President Marcos said that martial law has two objectives: (1) to save the republic, and (2) to "reform the social, economic and political institutions in our country." In accordance with the two objectives, President Marcos issued general orders and letters of instruction to that effect: General Order No. 1 -- The President proclaimed that he should govern the nation and direct the operations of the Government, including all its agencies and instrumentalities, as Commander-in-Chief of all the armed forces of the Philippines; General Order No. 2 -- The President directed the Secretary of National Defense to arrest or cause the arrest and take into his custody the individuals named in the attached list and to hold them until otherwise so ordered by the President or by his duly designated representative, as well as to arrest or cause the arrest and take into his custody and to hold them otherwise ordered released by him or by his duly authorized representative such persons who may have committed crimes described in the Order; General Order No.3 -- The President ordered that all executive departments, bureaus, offices, agencies and instrumentalities of the National Government, government owned or controlled corporations, as well all governments of all the provinces, cities, municipalities and barrios should continue to function under their present officers and employees, until otherwise ordered by the President or by his duly designated representatives. The President further ordered that the Judiciary should continue to function in accordance with its present organization and personnel, and should try and decide in accordance with existing laws all criminal and civil cases, except certain cases enumerated in the Order. General Order No. 4 -- The President ordered that a curfew be maintained and enforced throughout the Philippines from twelve o'clock midnight until four o'clock in the morning. General Order No. 5 -- All rallies, demonstrations and other forms of group actions including strikes and picketing in vital industries such as in companies engaged in manufacture or processing as well as in production or processing of essential commodities or products for exports, and in companies engaged in banking of any kind, as well as in hospitals and in schools and colleges are prohibited. General Order No. 6 -- No person shall keep, possess or carry outside of his residence any firearm unless such person is duly authorized to keep, possess or carry any such firearm. Letter of Instruction No. 1 -- The President ordered the Press Secretary and the Secretary of National Defense to take over and control or cause the taking over and control of newspapers, magazines, radio and television facilities and all other media of communications for the duration of the national emergency. Letter of Instruction No. 2 -- The President ordered the Secretary of National Defense to take over the management, control and operation of the Manila Electric Company (Meralco), the Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT), the National Waterworks and Sewerage Authority (Nawasa), the Philippine National Railways (PNR), the Philippine Airlines, Air Manila, Filipinas Orient Airways, and other public utilities. Letter of Instruction No. 3 -- The President ordered the Secretary of National Defense to take over the possession, control, operation of all privately owned aircraft and watercraft of whatever make bearing Philippine registry and to keep such under his custody for the duration of national emergency or until otherwise ordered by the President. Letter of Instruction No. 4 -- The President ordered the Secretary of Foreign Affairs not to issue travel papers such as passports and other like documents to any citizens of the Philippines except to those who are being sent abroad in the service of the Philippines. Letter of Instruction No. 5 -- The President ordered the Secretary of Justice and all subordinate officials under him not to issue any police or immigration clearance to any citizen of the Philippines who may wish to depart for other country. Letter of Instruction No. 6 -- The President ordered the Secretary of Finance and all subordinate officials under him not to issue any tax clearance to any citizen of the Philippines who may wish to depart for other country. Pursuant to General Order No. 1, the following were arrested and detained by the military: Representatives Roque Ablan, Jr.(Ilocos Norte), Rafael Aquino (Sorsogon) and Rolando Puzon; Senators Benigno Aquino, Jr., Jose W. Diokno and Ramon Mitra; Governors Rolando Puzon (Kalinga-Apayao) and Lino Bocalan (Cavite); former Senator Francisco "Soc" Rodrigo; Con Con delegates Napoleon Rama, Enrique Voltaire Garcia, II, Teofisto Guingona, Jr., Bren Guiao, Alejandro Lichauco, Jose Nolledo, Jose Concepcion, Jr., and Jose Mari Velez; journalists Joaquin 'Chino" Roces, Maximo Soliven, Teodoro Locsin, Sr., Amando Doronilla, Renato Constantino, and Luis Mauricio. Others arrested are as follows: Hernando Abaya, Ang Nay Quang, Luis Beltran, Jorge Bocobo, IV, Ramon Chramico, Cipriano cid, Chua Giok Su @ Bob Chua, Herminio Caloma, Romeo Dizon, Armando Eufemio, Rolando Fadul, Rolando Feleo, Jose Fuentes @ Joey, Rosalinda Galang @ Roz, Go Eng Guan, Flora Lansang, Teodosio Lansang, Guillermo Ponce de Leon, Joel Rocamora, etc. Most of the arrested were members of the opposition "sympathetic to the rebels or supporting the rebel movement" and members of the communist movement. As a result of LOI No. 1, all newspapers, television and radio stations and other means of mass media were closed and placed under military control. Some of them were later permitted to reopen but under strict censorship. On September 22, 1972, the President signed Letter of Authority No.1, authorizing the Press Secretary and the Secretary of National Defense to permit the operation of Radio Philippines Network (RPN), Kanlaon Broadcasting System (KBS), and the Daily Express, "it having been established that they have not participated in a conspiracy to seize political and state power in the Philippines and to take over the government by force and violence. The 1973 Constitution -- On March 16, 1967, the Philippine Congress passed Resolution No. 2 calling for a Constitutional Convention to change the Constitution. Election of the delegates to the Convention were held on November 20, 1970 pursuant to Republic Act No. 6132, otherwise known as the "1970 Constitutional Convention Act." The Constitutional Convention formally began on June 1, 1971. Former President Carlos P. Garcia, a delegate from Bohol, was elected President. Unfortunately he died on June 14, 1971 and was succeeded by another former President, Diosadado Macapagal of Pampanga. Before the Convention could finish its work, martial law was proclaimed. Several delegates were placed under detention and others went into hiding or voluntary exile. The martial law declaration affected the final outcome of the convention. In fact, it was said, that the President dictated some provisions of the Constitution. On November 29, 1972, the Convention approved its Proposed Constitution of the Philippines. On November 30, 1972, the President issued Presidential Decree No.73 setting the date of the plebiscite on January 15, 1973 for the ratification or rejection of the proposed Constitution. On January 7, 1973, however, the President issued General Order No. 20 postponing indefinitely the plebiscite scheduled on January 15. On January 10-15, 1973 Plebiscite, the Citizen Assemblies voted for (1) ratification of the 1973 Constitution, (2) the suspension of the convening of the Interim National Assembly, (3) the continuation of martial law, and (4) moratorium on elections for a period of at least seven years. On January 17, 1973 the President issued Proclamation No. 1102 announcing that the proposed Constitution had been ratified by an overwhelming vote of the members of the Citizen Assemblies, organized by Marcos himself through Presidential Decree No. 86 Various legal petitions were filed with the Supreme Court assailing the validity of the ratification of the 1973 Constitution. On March 30, 1973, a divided Supreme Court ruled in Javellana vs. Executive Secretary (6 SCRA 1048) that "there is no further obstacle to the new Constitution being considered in force and effect." The 1973 Constitution would have established in the Philippines a parliamentary government, with the President as a ceremonial head of state and a Prime Minister as the head of government. This was not implemented as a result of the referendum-plebiscite held on January 10-15, 1972 through the Citizen Assemblies whereby an overwhelming majority rejected the convening of a National Assembly. From 1972 until the convening of the Interim Batasang Pambansa in 1978, the President exercised absolute legislative power. 1976 Amendments to the Constitution On October 16-17, 1976 majority of barangay voters (Citizen Assemblies) approved that martial law should be continued and ratified the amendments to the Constitution proposed by President Marcos. The 1976 Amendments were: an Interim Batasang Pambansa (IBP) substituting for the Interim National Assembly, the President would also become the Prime Minister and he would continue to exercise legislative powers until martial law should have been lifted. The Sixth Amendment authorized the President to legislate: Whenever in the judgment of the President there exists a grave emergency or a threat or imminence thereof, or whenever the Interim Batasang Pambansa or the regular National Assembly fails or is unable to act adequately on any matter for any reason that in his judgment requires immediate action, he may, in order to meet the exigency, issue the necessary decrees, orders or letters of instructions, which shall form part of the law of the land. First national election under martial law On April 7, 1978, the first national election under martial law was held. The election for 165- members of the Interim Batasang Pambansa resulted to the massive victory of the administration coalition party, the "Kilusang Bagong Lipunan ng Nagkakaisang Nacionalista, Liberal, at iba pa" or KBL. First Lady Imelda Marcos, KBL Chairman for NCR, won the highest number of votes in Metro Manila. Only 15 opposition candidates in other parts of the country won. Among them were: Francisco Tatad (former Secretary of Public Information to Pres. Marcos), Reuben Canoy (Mindanao Alliance), Homobono Adaza (MA), and Aquilino Pimentel, Jr. None of the members of Laban ng Bayan of former Senator Benigno Aquino, Jr. were elected. The Opposition denounced the massive votebuying and cheating in that elections. The opposition Liberal Party boycotted the elections as a futile exercise. On April 21, 1978, the election of 14 sectoral representatives (agricultural, labor, and youth) was held. On June 12, 1978 the Interim Batasang Pambansa was convened with Ferdinand E. Marcos as President-Prime Minister and Querube Makalintal as Speaker. Lifting of martial law - After putting in force amendments to the Constitution and legislations securing his sweeping powers and with the Batasan under his control, President Marcos lifted martial law on January 17, 1981. However, the suspension of the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus continued in the autonomous regions of Western Mindanao and Central Mindanao. The Opposition dubbed the lifting of martial law as a mere "face lifting" as a precondition to the visit of Pope John Paul II. 1981 presidential election and the Fourth Republic On June 16, 1981, six months after the lifting of martial law, the first presidential election in twelve years was held. As to be expected, President Marcos run and won a massive victory over the other candidates -- Alejo Santos of the Nacionalista Party (Roy Wing) and Cebu Assemblyman Bartolome Cabangbang of the Federal Party. The major opposition parties, Unido (United Democratic Opposition, a coalition of opposition parties, headed by Salvador Laurel) and Laban, boycotted the elections. In an almost one-sided election, President Marcos won an overwhelming 88% of the votes, the highest in Philippine electoral history. The Nacionalista candidate Alejo Santos garnered only 8.6% of the votes and Cabangbang obtained less than 3%. On June 30, 1981, President Marcos was inaugurated in grandiose ceremonies and proclaimed the "birth of a new Republic." The new Republic lasted only for less than five years. Economic and political crises led to its demise. The failed impeachment attempt On August 13, 1985, fifty-six Assemblymen signed a resolution calling for the impeachment of President Marcos for graft and corruption, culpable violation of the Constitution, gross violation of his oath of office and other high crimes. They cited the San Jose Mercury News exposé of the Marcoses' multi-million dollar investment and property holdings in the United States. The properties allegedly amassed by the First Family were the Crown Building, Lindenmere Estate, and a number of residential apartments (in New Jersey and New York), a shopping center in New York, mansions (in London, Rome and Honolulu), the Helen Knudsen Estate in Hawaii and three condominiums in San Francisco, California. The Assemblymen also included in the complaint the misuse and misapplication of funds "for the construction of the Film Center, where X-rated and pornographic films are exhibited, contrary to public morals and Filipino customs and traditions." The following day, the Committee on Justice, Human Rights and Good Government dismissed the impeachment complain for being insufficient in form and substance: The resolution is no more than a hodge-podge of unsupported conclusions, distortion of law, exacerbated by ultra partisan considerations. It does not allege ultimate facts constituting an impeachable offense under the Constitution. In sum, the Committee finds that the complaint is not sufficient in form and substance to warrant its further consideration. It is not sufficient in form because the verification made by the affiants that the allegations in the resolution "are true and correct of our own knowledge" is transparently false. It taxes the ken of men to believe that the affiants individually could swear to the truth of allegations, relative to the transactions that allegedly transpired in foreign countries given the barrier of geography and the restrictions of their laws. More important, the resolution cannot be sufficient in substance because its careful assay shows that it is a mere charade of conclusions. Economy - Economic performance during the Marcos era was strong at times, but when looked at over his whole regime, it was not characterized by strong economic growth. Penn World Tables report real growth in GDP per capita averaged 3.5% from 1951 to 1965, while under the Marcos regime (1966 to 1986), annual average growth was only 1.4%. To help finance a number of economic development projects, such as infrastructure, the Marcos government engaged in borrowing money. Foreign capital was invited to invest in certain industrial projects. They were offered incentives including tax exemption privileges and the privilege of bringing out their profits in foreign currencies. One of the most important economic programs in the 1980s was the Kilusang Kabuhayan at Kaunlaran (Movement for Livelihood and Progress). This program was started in September 1981. Its aim was to promote the economic development of the barangays by encouraging the barangay residents to engage in their own livelihood projects. The government's efforts resulted in the increase of the nation's economic growth rate to an average of six percent to seven percent from 1970 to 1980.[citation needed] The rate was only less than 5% in the previous decade. The Gross National Product rose from P55 billion ($7.7 billion) in 1972 to P193 billion ($27 billion) in 1980.[citation needed] Tourism rose, contributing to the economy's growth. Most of these "tourists" were Filipino balikbayans (returnees) who came under the Ministry of Tourism's Balikbayan Program, launched in 1973. Economic growth was largely financed, however, by U.S. economic aid and several loans made by the Marcos government. The country's foreign debts were less than US$1billion when Marcos assumed the presidency in 1965, and more than US$28billion when he left office in 1986. A sizable amount of these moneys went to Marcos family and friends in the form of behest loans. These loans were assumed by the government and still being serviced by taxpayers. Today, more than half of the country's revenues are outlayed for the payments on the interests of loans alone. Another major source of economic growth was the remittances of overseas Filipino workers. Thousands of Filipino workers, unable to find jobs locally, sought and found employment in the Middle East, Singapore and Hong Kong. These overseas Filipino workers not only helped ease the country's unemployment problem but also earned much-needed foreign exchange for the Philippines. The Philippine economy suffered a great decline after the Aquino assassination by Fidel Ramos' assassination squad in August 1983. The wave of anti-Marcos demonstrations in the country that followed scared off tourists. The political troubles also hindered the entry of foreign investments, and foreign banks stopped granting loans to the Philippine government. In an attempt to launch a national economic recovery program, Marcos negotiated with foreign creditors including the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), for a restructuring of the country's foreign debts -- to give the Philippines more time to pay the loans. Marcos ordered a cut in government expenditures and used a portion of the savings to finance the Sariling Sikap (Self-Reliance), a livelihood program he established in 1984. However, the economy experienced negative economic growth beginning in 1984 and continued to decline despite the government's recovery efforts. The recovery program's failure was caused by civil unrest, rampant graft and corruption within the government and by Marcos' lack of credibility. Marcos himself diverted large sums of government money to his party's campaign funds. The unemployment rate ballooned from 6.30% in 1972 to 12.55% in 1985. The "Downfall" begins - The Philippine Daily Inquirer's headline, February 26. During these years, his regime was marred by rampant corruption and political mismanagement by his relatives and cronies, which culminated with the assassination of Benigno Aquino, Jr. Critics considered Marcos as the quintessential kleptocrat, having looted billions of dollars from the Filipino treasury. Much of the lost sum has yet to be accounted for, but recent documents have revealed that it was actually Fidel Ramos who had diverted the money (source required to substantiate this). He was also a notorious nepotist, appointing family members and close friends to high positions in his cabinet. This practice led to even more widespread mishandling of government, especially during the 1980s when Marcos was mortally ill with lupus and was in and out of office. Perhaps the most prominent example is the Bataan Nuclear Power Plant, a multi-billion dollar project that turned out to be a white elephant which allegedly provided huge kickbacks to Marcos and his businessman-friend, Herminio Disini, who spearheaded the project. The reactor, which turned out to be based on old, costly designs and built on an earthquake fault, has still to produce a single watt of electricity. The Philippine government today is still paying interests on more than US$28 billion public debts incurred during his administration. It was reported that when Marcos fled, U.S. Customs agents discovered 24 suitcases of gold bricks and diamond jewelry hidden in diaper bags; in addition, certificates for gold bullion valued in the billions of dollars are allegedly among the personal properties he, his family, his cronies and business partners had surreptitiously taken with them when the Reagan administration provided them safe passage to Hawaii. During his third term, Marcos's health deteriorated rapidly due to kidney ailments. He was absent for weeks at a time for treatment, with no one to assume command. Many people questioned whether he still had capacity to govern, due to his grave illness and the ballooning political unrest. With Marcos ailing, his equally powerful wife, Imelda, emerged as the government's main public figure. Marcos dismissed speculations of his ailing health--he used to be an avid golfer and fitness buff who liked showing off his physique. In light of these growing problems, the assassination of Aquino in 1983 would later prove to be the catalyst that led to his overthrow. Many Filipinos came to believe that Marcos, a shrewd political tactician, had no hand in the murder of Aquino but that he was involved in cover-up measures. However, the opposition blamed Marcos directly for the assassination while others blamed the military and his wife, Imelda. The 1985 acquittals of Gen. Fabian Ver as well as other high-ranking military officers for the crime were widely seen as a miscarriage of justice. By 1984, his close personal ally, U.S. President Ronald Reagan, started distancing himself from the Marcos regime that he and previous American presidents had strongly supported even after Marcos declared martial law. The United States, which had provided hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, was crucial in buttressing Marcos' rule over the years. During the Carter administration the relation with the U.S. soured somewhat when President Jimmy Carter targeted the Philippines in his human rights campaign. In 1981 Vice President George Bush seemed to signal a different approach when in his visit to Manila he told Marcos, "We love your adherence to democratic principles and to democratic processes." In the face of escalating public discontent and under pressure from foreign allies, Marcos called a snap presidential election for 1986, with more than a year left in his term. He selected Arturo Tolentino as his running mate. The opposition united behind Aquino's widow, Corazon and her running mate, Salvador Laurel. The final tally of the National Movement for Free Elections, an accredited poll watcher, showed Aquino winning by almost 800,000 votes. However, the government tally showed Marcos winning by almost 1.6 million votes. This appearance of blatant fraud by Marcos led the Catholic Bishops Conference of the Philippines and the United States Senate to condemn the elections. Both Marcos and Aquino traded accusations of vote-rigging. Popular sentiment in Metro Manila sided with Aquino, leading to a massive, multisectoral congregation of protesters, and the gradual defection of the military to Aquino led by Marcos' cronies, Enrile and Ramos. It must be noted that prior to his defection, Enrile's arrest warrant, having been charged for graft and corruption, was about to be served.[citation needed] The "People Power movement" drove Marcos into exile, and installed Corazon Aquino as the new president. At the height of the revolution, Enrile revealed that his ambush was faked in order for Marcos to have a pretext for imposing martial law. However, Marcos maintained that he was the duly-elected and proclaimed President of the Philippines for a fourth term. Marcos' wife was found to have over 2500 pairs of shoes in her closet. The Marcos family and their associates went into exile in Hawaii and were later indicted for embezzlement in the United States. Marcos died in Honolulu on September 28, 1989 of kidney, heart and lung ailments. He was interred in a private mausoleum at Byodo-In Temple on the island of Oahu, visited daily by the Marcos family, political allies and friends. The late strongman's remains are currently interred inside a refrigerated crypt in Ilocos Norte, where his son, Ferdinand, Jr., and eldest daughter, Imee, have since become the local governor and representative, respectively. A Mount Rushmore-esque bust of Ferdinand Marcos, commissioned by Tourism Minister Jose Aspiras, was carved into a hillside in Benguet. It was subsequently destroyed by suspects that include left-wing activists, members of a local tribe who have been displaced by its construction, and looters hunting for the Marcos legendary hidden treasure. Imelda Marcos was acquitted of embezzlement by a U.S. court in 1990, but is still facing a few hundred additional graft charges in Philippine courts in 2006. In 1995 some 10,000 Filipinos won a U.S. class-action lawsuit filed against the Marcos estate. The charges were filed by victims or their surviving relatives for torture, execution and disappearances.[25] Human rights groups place the number of victims of extrajudicial killings under martial law at 1500 and Karapatan (a local human rights group's) records show 759 involuntarily disappeared (their bodies never found). While military historian Alfred McCoy in his book "Closer than Brothers: Manhood at the Philippine Military Academy" and in his speech "Dark Legacy" cite 3,257 extrajudicial killings, 35,000 torture victims, and 70,000 incarcerated during the Marcos years. The newspaper "Bulatlat" place the number of victims of arbitrary arrest and detention at 120,000. The Legacy - Prior to Marcos, Philippine presidents had followed the path of "traditional politics" by using their position to help along friends and allies before stepping down for the next "player." Marcos essentially destroyed this setup through military rule, which allowed him to rewrite the rules of the game so they favored the Marcoses and their allies. His practice of using the politics of patronage in his desire to be the "amo" or godfather of not just the people, but the judiciary, legislature and administrative branches of the government ensured his downfall, no matter how Marcos justified it according to his own philosophy of the "politics of achievement". This practice entailed bribery, racketeering, and embezzlement to gain the support of the aforementioned sectors. The 14 years of his dictatorship, according to critics, have warped the legislative, judiciary and the military. Another allegation was that his family and cronies looted so much wealth from the country that to this day investigators have difficulty determining precisely how many billions of dollars have been salted away. The Swiss government has also returned US$684 million in allegedly ill-gotten Marcos wealth. According to staunch Marcos critic Jovito Salonga, author of the book "Presidential Plunder: the Quest for the Marcos Ill-Gotten Wealth," monopolies in several vital industries have been created and placed under the control of Marcos cronies, such as coconut (under Eduardo Cojuangco, Jr. and Juan Ponce Enrile), tobacco (under Lucio Tan), banana (under Antonio Floirendo), manufacturing (under Herminio Disini and Ricardo Silverio), and sugar (under Roberto Benedicto). The Marcos and Romualdez families became owners, directly or indirectly, of the nation's largest corporations, such as the Philippine Long Distance Company (PLDT), the Philippine Airlines (PAL), Meralco (a national electric company), Fortune Tobacco, the San Miguel Corporation (Asia's largest beer and bottling company), numerous newspapers, radio and TV broadcasting companies, several banks, real estate properties in New York, California and Hawaii. It was no exaggeration when Imelda Marcos declared in an interview, that her family "own practically everything in the Philippines. The Aquino government also accused them of skimming off foreign aid and international assistance. This is a clear example of the aforementioned "crony capitalism" that Marcos introduced during the New Society. His apologists claim Marcos was a good president gone bad and that he was a man of rare gifts--a brilliant lawyer, a shrewd politician and keen legal analyst with a ruthless streak and a flair for leadership. Having been in power for more than 20 years, Marcos also had the very rare opportunity to lead the Philippines toward prosperity, with massive infrastructure he put in place as well as an economy on the rise. However, he put these talents to work by building a regime that he apparently intended to perpetuate as a dynasty. A former aide of Marcos said that "Nobody will ever know what a remarkable president he could have made. That's the saddest part". Among the many documents he left behind in the Palace, after he fled in 1986, was one appointing his wife as his successor. Opponents state that the evidence suggests that he used the communist threat as a pretext for seizing power. However, the communist insurgency was at its peak during the late 1960s to early 1970s when it was found out that the People's Republic of China was shipping arms to support the communist cause in the Philippines after the interception of a vessel containing loads of firearms. After he was overthrown, former Defense Minister Juan Ponce Enrile stated that certain incidents had been contrived to justify the imposition of Martial Law, such as Enrile's ambush. The Martial Law dictatorship may have helped boost the communist insurgency's strength and numbers, but not to the point that could have led to the overthrow of the elected government. Marcos' regime was crucial in the United States' fight against communism and its influences, with Marcos himself being a staunch anti-communist. Marcos however had an ironically mild streak to his "strongman" image, and as much as possible avoided bloodshed and confrontation.[citation needed] His most ardent supporters claim Marcos was serious about Martial Law and had genuine concern for reforming the society as evidenced by his actions during the period, up until his cronies, whom he entirely trusted, had firmly entrenched themselves in the government. By then, they say he was too ill and too dependent on them to do something about it. The same has been said about his relationship with his wife Imelda, who became the government's main public figure in light of his illness, by then wielding perhaps more power than Marcos himself. It is important to note that many laws written by Marcos are still in force and in effect. Out of thousands of proclamations, decrees and executive orders, only a few were repealed, revoked, modified or amended. Few credit Marcos for promoting Filipino culture and nationalism. His 21 years in power with the help of U.S. massive economic aid and foreign loans enabled Marcos to build more schools, hospitals and infrastructure than any of his predecessors combined. Due to his iron rule, he was able to impose order and reduce crime by strict implementation of the law. The relative economic success that the Philippines enjoyed during the initial part of his presidency is hard to dispel. Many of Marcos' accomplishments were overlooked after the so-called "People Power" EDSA Revolution, but the Marcos era definitely had accomplishments in its own right. A journalist said that "The Marcoses were the best of us, and they were the worst of us. That's why we say we hate them so much." According to Transparency International, Marcos is the second most corrupt head of government ever, after Suharto. Even so, according to a recent survey, some Filipinos prefer Marcos' rule due to the shape of the country in administrations succeeding his. Many admire his autocratic, strong-arm rule, saying that his style of leadership is sorely missed and needed in the post-EDSA Philippines where too much democracy has ruined the body politic, with fractious standoffs in Congress, endless so-called "People Power" demonstrations, deadlocks in the Senate and movie actors as well as traditional politicians being elected into public office. A few are nostalgic for the Marcos era, where the government was well-organized and laws were strictly followed by civilians, leading to a relatively disciplined populace. On the other hand, many despise his regime, his silencing the free press, his curtailing of civil liberties such as the right to peaceably assemble, his dictatorial control, the imprisonment, torture, murder and disappearance of thousands of his oppositionists, and his supposed shameless plunder of the nation's treasury. It is quite evident that the EDSA Revolution left the Philippine society polarized. Nostalgia remains high in parts of the populace for the Marcos era due to the downward spiral the Philippines fell into after his departure. It can be said that his public image has been significantly rehabilitated after worsening political and economic problems that have hounded his successors. The irony is that these economic troubles are largely due to the country's massive debts incurred during his administration. The Marcos Era's legacy, polarizing as it is, remains deeply embedded in the Philippines today.
