Cramming Cramming Cramming...

I am so crammed today, deadline for grade encoding is due today yet I cannot access my account online. Gone were the days where I can finish my grade computation ahead of time. Life is so different now if you have other concerns and priorities. One thing is for sure, I need to realign my priorities and must develop a good and effective time management.

Anyway, can somebody help me please?

Tape on the Floor

If you have ever wanted to mark off certain areas in the work place or even at home in the garage, then consider DuraStripe X-Treme tape. The tape comes in various colors to make it easier to divide areas into specific categories or locations. One of the best things about using the tape in a work place is that it can be placed on almost any kind of floor. Flooring doesn’t have to be level in order to lay the tape down. You can easily place the tape, and if it needs to be moved later on, all you have to do is pull it up to place it in a different position.

When you put the tape on the floor, you don’t have to worry about how hard it is to keep clean, the protectant coating makes it easy to sweep over the tape and even use a damp mop to clean the surface. This is an ideal product for dividing areas in the building where people should, or should not, walk. It can also be used to divide the work area into specific departments such as manufacturing or safety. The bright colors stand out on the floor so that employees can easily see the tape.

A Taste of Summer

I do not have any plan yet for summer vacation but for the last two days I got a taste of it. I was able to join a team that assist one of the Barangay here in Cagayan de Oro for their strategic planning. The two-day event was held at Duka Beach Resort in Medina. The last time that I was there, way back 2007, the place was not fully developed yet. But now it was totally different. I didn't get the opportunity to go deeper due to time constraint but I get to enjoy the beauty of nature.

If you are considering of a summer getaway, try Duka Beach Resort. It is so relaxing.

You Should Consider Hiring a Bankruptcy Lawyer

Are you in a situation where you have creditors demanding their money, but you don't have enough money to give them? Are you afraid to answer the phone because it could be creditors calling you and demanding their money? Your money troubles aren't just going to go away, so you need to act and get these problems resolved. In some cases, your money problems can be eliminated by simply working a few extra shifts. Some money troubles, however, are just too big for you to solve and bankruptcy is likely your only option left. If this is the case for you, and you live in the Columbia, SC area, you should consider hiring a bankruptcy lawyer in Columbia as soon as possible.

Is a Lawyer Necessary?

You do not need to have a lawyer with you when you file for bankruptcy, but it is a really good idea. When you file, any mistakes you make, even if they are seemingly small, can have huge ramifications and derail your bankruptcy plans. Your lawyer will go through the paperwork with you and make sure that you have done everything correctly. In addition, there will likely be a hearing that you must attend in which your creditors and their lawyers will do everything they can to still get their money. If you don't have a lawyer with you, you are at a huge disadvantage.

The Best Lawyers

A lot of lawyers will tell you that they can help you with your bankruptcy case, so it is your job to find one that is right for you. The best bankruptcy lawyers are those who have experience actually helping people go through the process. These lawyers might also work for a prestigious law firm with other lawyers who can help them, if needs be. These lawyers should also have a history of getting their clients results. Go online and see what former clients have said about how the lawyer did with their case. Once you have found a bankruptcy lawyer in Columbia, SC that you feel can help you, let them use their expertise for your case.

In Being Broken and Becoming Whole Again...

2 Corinthians 11:30 (64 kb)

I do not know if I should consider myself as a strong person. All I know is that I am now in the middle of the lake almost drowning but yet I am still holding on. I am holding on to the fact that God still holds my hand in spite and despite of everything.

I just hope that aside from gripping my hand, may God strengthen my soul especially now that I am totally depressed.

Do You Know the History of Your Triumph Motorcycle?

The first gas-powered motorcycle was created by Gottlieb Daimler in about 1885. Since then, the motorcycle has evolved into the ride you recognize today. One of the companies that have been there almost from the beginning is Triumph Motorcycles. How much of the history of your Triumph in Charlotte do you know?
 Triumph Beginnings

A German man named Siegfried Bettmann arrived in Coventry, England in the 1880s, and shortly after his arrival he began the S. Bettmann & Co. Import and Export Agency in London. With this company, which he would rename the Triumph Cycle Company in 1886, Bettmann would sell bicycles created by other businesses. When a German engineer by the name of Schulte was introduced into the company, he would help Bettmann begin actual manufacturing of bicycles. In 1902, Triumph produced their first motorcycle, known as No. 1, using a bicycle frame with a 2.2 hp Minerva engine. The company would continue producing bicycles and motorcycles, and would supply over 30,000 Model H Roadsters to allied troops in WWI. This motorcycle would come to be known as the Trusty Triumph, and is often regarded as the first modern motorcycle. In 1919, Schulte would leave the company, wishing to begin automobile production, but finding little support from Bettmann.

Automobiles and More

The new partner to Triumph, Colonel Claude V. Holbrook, would also show an interest in automobile production, and in the 1920s, automobile production would begin. The Super Seven would prove to be a popular Triumph vehicle. Bettmann would retire in 1933, shortly after the bicycle manufacturing portion of the company was sold. Facing financial trouble, the automobile and motorcycle portions of the operation would split in 1936. Jack Sangster would acquire the motorcycle side of things, and began exporting to the United States. In 1940, Triumph would begin production for WWII, selling over 50,000 motorcycles to the military over the course of the war.

Popularity and Longevity

In the United States, celebrities would bring fame to the Triumph motorcycles, with Marlon Brando riding a 1950 Thunderbird in the 1953 movie, “The Wild One,” Bud Elkins and Steve McQueen riding a TR6 650 Trophy in “The Great Escape” in 1963, and EvelKnievel performing stunts on a T-120 Bonneville and 650 Bonneville, such as his jump over the fountain at Caesar’s Palace Casino in Las Vegas. In 1959, the T-120 Bonneville 650 would become the highest selling British twin of all time. In the 1980s, Triumph would again face financial trouble, but would be purchased by John Bloor in 1983, confirming that Triumph would be the largest and longest running British motorcycle manufacturer, and to be considered by many as the longest running motorcycle company in the world. Today, you can still find a Triumph in Charlottesville and across the United States and around the world, with models such as the iconic Bonneville, the Daytona, Rocket III, and many more still in production.
