Welcome to the blog, you made it! : )
I hope everyone is having an awesome first day!
Performing at the Xcel Energy Center tonight.
There are some who would hire an artist to paint a portrait for official decoration such as portrait of eminent leaders, politicians, or founders of some institution etc. People do commission portrait paintings. For example, some people want their own portrait made, some want portrait painted of their parents. Some people like to have portraits of their kids painted.
My portrait is very important to me for these two reasons:
- The wordings are gotten from the holy bible of the Christian religion.
- It is painted with the united states flag color and design as the background.
The portrait in question has the wordings that states:
Greater love hath no one than this,
That one would lay their life down for another.
My starting point is by introducing my religion and my beliefs. I am born into a Christian family and I grew up knowing that the word of God gives life and understanding. This is not a make believe because I have tested it and it worked for me.
I recite the words from the bible daily.
It gives me the confidence to go through the day without worrying about a thing.The wordings of the bible is very important to me, and I take it very seriously. The painted portrait is sitting on my reading table in my bedroom where I can see it and reflect on it immediately I woke up from my bed.
Secondly this portrait is painted on the gorgeous American flag color and design. Which reminds me that American is a land of opportunity, and someday I will grab that opportunity and be a winner I am born to be. The bible tells me that I am the light of the world, and a tree that is planted on the hill cannot be hidden. # I love the word of God.
Walter Coffey, author of historical fiction and non-fiction, wrote in his June 17, 2011 article “How Illegal Immigration Harms the Economy” in the Tea Party Tribune:
This has been a national issue and a political question for a lot of Americans. People worry if this true or some people who are biased towards immigrants just made up the story.
After taking a critical look at occurrences of the nations history, regarding immigrants, and political talks. I would give my opinion that the economy impact of illegal immigrants in the United States is enormous and impacts the financial security of the country’s legal residents. The impact plays out in many ways that is both positive and negative.
- Americans believe that undocumented immigrants are exploiting the United States’ economy. The widespread belief is that illegal aliens cost more in government services than they contribute to the economy.
- All immigrants, regardless of legal status, contribute to the American economy. The 11.3 million unauthorized immigrantsliving the U.S. today contribute $11.64 billion in state and local taxeseach year. The Social Security Administration estimates that unauthorized immigrants contribute a net of $13 billion in payroll taxes annually, which helps to strengthen the Social Security system.
- The fact remain that illegal immigrants do not get welfare benefits of any kind. At the same time, they often pay income tax. Through paycheck withholding, and sales Tax.
In conclusion immigrants have historically played a key role in the building of the United States, and they continue to carry that legacy today. it is up to Congress to reform the immigration system so that it will be both beneficial to the immigrants and the nation they believe in.
Managing the reputation of your company or brand is extremely important. To a lot of companies, that means just responding to negative comments, and that’s where it ends. The importance of keeping up a good reputation all around on social media can elevate a brand to a healthy social presence.
According to Social Media Today, 90% of consumers look at online reviews before buying something from a company. That could mean you could be losing 90% of your potential customers if your online reputation isn’t groomed well.
Reputation management is a necessity to not take such losses. The writer of the article suggests that “reputation management is the process of taking your online reputation into your own hands.” And utilize strategies like creating your own content and interacting with people reviewing your stuff. Ultimately its about showing your customer base that you care about feedback, that you want to improve your process and offer better service every day.
It’s such an easy way to protect your brand image online, as well as to build relationships with customers that will come back because you thanked them for their feedback.
Ultimately, keeping up and maintaining a good reputation is important to show that we care about our relationship with our customers and deferring from all the negative responses that could turn away so much business. It’s kind of interesting to see how many people will make a decision based on reviews.
