It's about love and friendship and family.
Its profound and stirring, its well crafted, you won't be able to get it out of your head for weeks. Downham doesn't shy away from a single taboo. It tells of the simple, everyday things that can bring such joy, pleasure and humour to the experience of living, as well as the anger, frustration and deep sadness that may be felt. The voice of this girl is brilliant, the story so well written, I could not stop reading - knowing that there is no happy ending, knowing that only a slow read will give Tessa more time to live You told me yesterday that I needed tissues and you were right.
In general I do not weep while reading books Young adolescents might recognize Tess's last wishes, sex, love, drugs etc. It makes you realise just how precious life is.

Bailey was able to scale up to apartments and then commercial triple net lease property using the equity in her properties. Much of that equity was accumulated through the monthly mortgage payments chipping away at the principal amount owed to the bank on her properties. All of these mortgage payments are, of course, covered by the rental income and therefore were never a financial burden to Bailey—rather, just an expense before her cash flow.
Without time, this fantastic benefit cannot work.
Not always, but frequently—and if purchased correctly, managed correctly, and with a bit of luck—the majority of real estate tends to increase in value when looking at large chunks of time. Sometimes appreciation keeps pace with inflation, sometimes more, and sometimes property goes down in value. In our example, Bailey experienced very moderate appreciation simply by holding the properties for such long periods of time like many investors do.
This is yet another benefit of utilizing time to allow the natural forces of the market to behave in ways that may benefit you as the investor through appreciation. Starting early affords the option to time market cycles. Although not specifically mentioned in the example, another massive benefit starting sooner rather than later and having more time is being able to have more flexibility in you choices of when to buy and sell. If Investor X is starting in real estate with the goal of retirement and financial freedom, in 5 years he may have no choice but to buy now and buy fast, regardless of market conditions.
If Investor Y has 30 years to reach the same goal, he has more flexibility to time his purchases throughout market cycles to the most advantageous timing. In our example, maybe Bailey noticed the slight appreciation she had achieved in her 14 houses and decided now was the time to cash out refi while the market was being good to her rather than wait and potentially see a dip down in value. Because she had time on her side, Bailey could be patient and strike while the iron was hot.
The time you have is the most powerful asset you control. By taking action toward financial freedom now rather than later, you are setting yourself up for the true prize of freedom of your time.
Our example with Bailey is a very achievable, easy-to-implement strategy that anyone can do. The example is very conservative and has Bailey fully retired at age For my peers who are in the younger generation, you are sitting on a goldmine of time. Do something now to set the wheels of exponential growth in motion. That can be real estate or any other investment. Individual who believes that information belongs to the people.
Most pirates only spend a fraction of their time physically using the downloaded media files. For them, it is a mere sampling process.
The office worker or classmate who brings in a disk with a few files is not necessarily a pirate any more than a friend laying a copy of the latest U2 album on you.
The music and film industry usage, applying it to peer-to-peer file sharing, is a disservice to honest discussion. Online file sharing is the work of enthusiasts who are trading media because there is no legitimate alternative.
The bootlegger copies for profit e. Bootlegging is an illegal commercial activity that is typically a substantial problem only in countries without strong enforcement of existing copyright law. If they can. Lets further assume, that instead of fighting consumer enthusiasm, why not just embrace it? Why not just flood the peer-to-peer services with legitimate and affordable content? Give to the user what he craves in as many ways as can be found, at a fair price, and let him choose which works best for him.
As always, there are entrance barriers to the ideal world. Although the math is simple to the bean counters, pricing remains one of the biggest. Simple, yes. Logical, no — especially when only 2 out of 12 songs on the CD are worth listening to. User surveys show that a price closer to 50 cents would be more realistic, which would result in undercutting retail chains that sell CDs. A route that the labels are not willing to pursue, even if that is what it takes for Internet services to thrive.
In theory, everybody involved wants to be happy, rich and successful — nothing new on the media front. It is a difficult obstacle to pass, as it will need time to win clearances from the publishers and establish reliable systems to track and account for digitally delivered media. Once the Entertainment industry provides a service that grants access to all the same songs and movies, freedom from onerous copy-restriction, and other added value, the paying subscribers will come.
For media businesses, the question is whether they will understand how to perform their role before someone else does. Online distribution is an ecological niche, and new distributors will rush in to fill it if the old ones fail to do so.
Very much like Hotmail, Yahoo! When looking at the online dilemma, analogies with television are instructive: free television financed by government levies and advertisers has largely been supplemented by paid subscriptions to cable TV, which in turn has been complemented by premium channels.
HBO has become television's most profitable network. Households prefer subscriptions to larger collections of content, rather than single channels.
Basically, some of the digital information is removed from the recording without damaging its quality. The main reason, why this technology is not used to stop piracy is, because there is a slight conflict of interest within the major conglomerates when it comes to protecting their library of intellectual property rights.
Suffering from falling margins and a troubled economy, Sony is trying to convince consumers to buy new hardware when they have perfectly good one. A true and tested strategy is to make the hardware more interesting and hip.
The word most embraced and loathed in this respect is: digital. Now think of Joe Bloke who recently purchased all the multimedia capabilities imaginable, incl. Speaking of declining record sales: a study by Forrester Research concludes that most of the slump in sales is the result of a declining economy rather than unauthorized downloads.
Can the same be concluded for the world of moving pictures? Market summaries for the week ending 11 August , saw the film reach the number one position along with the biggest first week of sales in the history of DVD. A consumer-shopping spree that happened — in both cases — within a period of 24 hours!
Obviously, business cannot be as bad as Mr. Valenti would like us to believe. What the media corporations covet most is flexibility — the ability to set the rules any way they like. Which brings us to another dirty little secret: media corporations are desperate to sell the same media again and again. Most people believe that once they have purchased a media product, they own it. This is not quite true. In fact, what has been purchased is the license, which allows the purchaser to use the product.
Here, a licensing model works just fine. However, it did not stop some companies to try out expiration concepts. For a few months, Creative Planet was offering industry standard software Movie Magic on a yearly subscription basis before reverting back to the old scheme after consumer protests and declining sales.
Media executives like to point out that file-sharing networks destroy their business. Those who make this argument completely fail to understand the nature of distribution.
Distribution is not a role that will be undone by any new technology, since its existence is mandated by mathematics. Millions of buyers and millions of sellers cannot find one another without intermediaries who segment the market into more manageable pieces. New media have historically not replaced but rather augmented and expanded existing marketplaces.
Opportunities exist to arbitrage between the new distribution medium and the old. For instance, the rise of file sharing networks has helped to fuel the trading of records and CDs unavailable through normal distribution channels on eBay.
