Leave a Legacy – Keep a Personal Journal

Few things in life shed more light on who we are, what we believe, and lessons we have learned, than our personal journals. There is not a life that does not have meaning.
Whether you refer to it as a daily log, journaling, writing, keeping a diary, or taking daily notes; write down the events of your life along with the feelings, thoughts, and lessons learned.
As mundane as you think your life might be, there are people out there who will benefit immensely from your experiences. Descendants who read your words, opinions, and learn of your interests will discover much about themselves as they read your story. Far more is passed on through the genes than physical characteristics. Your children and children’s children will cherish the opportunity to take a glimpse into the past through your eyes. They will relate to your likes and dislikes and begin to understand themselves a little better.
Sharing your triumphs along with your defeats inspires and encourages those who come after you – as well as yourself – to keep on going. Life can be long, it is often difficult, and we don’t always make good choices along the way. By sharing those experiences in your personal journal – you empower others to make wiser choices. You can actually reach down into the generations and have influence. How cool is that?
I don’t come from a family that kept journals. Most of my ancestors did not leave anything of that nature behind – so we are left to guess about what their lives were like. My husband comes from a family that wrote fabulous entries in their journals. I have been so engrossed in reading about them. They included poetry, books they liked, philosophies they ascribed to, religious beliefs, and the general history of the world around them. They shared their experiences – both tough and tender. As I have poured through their journals – I feel a deep kinship to them. I look forward to meeting them one day. I’m so glad they wrote. I am also very envious of my husband for the rich resource he was left with.
I remember my father-in-law talking about his grandpa and what a mean man he was – he was heard saying, “never seen a meaner man”. Then one day I picked up the mean man’s journal and read it. I loved reading about his life. I found out that while crossing the plains in a large company of wagon trains, he was abandoned by his mother and father. He was 14 years old at the time and he shared how hard that was for him and somehow he just never got over it. He admitted that he had a temper and wasn’t always the nicest of sorts – but wished he was and always worked on it. Who wouldn’t have anger issues after being abandoned?
He wrote beautifully, including many of his own poems. I decided he wasn’t a mean man at all – at least not in his heart; and that he should be remembered for something other than “the meanest man ever”. I began sharing stories about his life with his great grandchildren at various family gatherings. They became interested and began reading about his life themselves. It was wonderful to hear respect and even pride enter in to conversations about him. If it hadn’t been for this man’s journal – he would still be remembered for the worst in him instead of the best.
Being an avid writer – I try to be mindful about what I write. I try to include the things that are going on in the world and how they affect me. I try to include the latest inventions and how they are changing everyday life. Of course, I try to write the good, bad and the ugly – just because – that is what life is made of. I also remember that because I am writing – I will have the last word on what I am really all about.
Every life is important – every life has value – leave a legacy and write about yours.

Stages of Child Development

There are many different kinds of stages a child goes through from birth to adolescence; normal, social-emotional and intellectual. These stages are also divided according to age group; early childhood, middle childhood and adolescence.
Though the boundaries of these stages shift over time as researchers find new understandings of how a children develop as the times changes.

  1. The Three Broad Stages of Child Development (Physical)
    Early Childhood – from birth to 8 years
    This is the fast-paced stage of child development in terms of all the areas of development; physical and mental. On the physical aspect, a child doubles his height and quadruples his weight from birth to 3 years of age. The body proportions also shift during this stage as the head of the infant that comprises a quarter of the total body length will be in total proportion wit his body as he becomes a toddler. At 3 to 8, they look like little adults already.
    Middle Childhood – from 8 to 12 years
    Although physical growth is steady and somewhat slow from 8 to 11 years of age, at the onset of puberty by 12, new body changes will occur. Actually the start of puberty differs in each individual. Some start as early as 9 while others as late as 12. Girls tend to develop earlier than boys.
    Adolescence – 12 to 18 years
    This is another period of rapid growth acceleration. During this period a child can grow up to 4 to 7 inches in height and about ten pounds per year. This fast growth is characterized by the hormonal growth that occurs during these years.
    In some cultures, adolescent never exist or if it does, it’s for a short period of time; because it coincides with their tradition of being matured adults at early ages. In some cultures the women are married by the time they reach 15, so no time to be adolescent and be an instant adult.
  2. The Social-Emotional Stage of Child Development
    Early Childhood
    From birth to the first year, a child’s social-emotional development mainly stays within the circle of his family. After the first year to about 3 years, a child already acknowledges other people presence around him. He interacts a little and expresses his needs. From 5 to 8 years, a child is better at expressing his feelings can by now start demanding for attention. This is the time when tantrums begin to become a big problem for parents.
    Middle Childhood
    Between the ages 8 to 12, a child is more socially and emotionally developed. This is due to the fact that they are more exposed to the outside world because of school. This is the time when they learn to make friends and get emotionally involved with people other than their families.
    This is the most crucial time for social and emotional develop of every child. This is when they are heavily burdened with peer pressure and being emotionally involved with the opposite sex. This is also the time when they communicate much with their families as they try to create identities of their own. This is the most frustrating time for most parents.
  3. Stages of Child Development in the Intellectual Aspect
    Early Childhood
    Intellectually, this stage is important as this is the sponge period in every child’s life. This is the time when they will learn about everything the world can give them.
    Middle Childhood
    As this is the period of education, intellectually, a child learns a lot during this period of his development.
    Intellectually, by this time a child has learn most things he must learn and he is just learns how to cultivate what he already knows.

Career Reinvention

So, it’s Sunday evening and you’ve got the Monday-morning-blues. You are not happy about what awaits tomorrow. Your unhappy Monday through Friday work life is spilling over into your weekend. Thoughts of your job create stress, which in turn causes unhappiness in your relationships. Sounds like a career reinvention is just what you need. Can’t quit your job? Fortunately, you don’t have to. You can infuse elements of an ideal career into your everyday life.

  1. Begin with a vision.
    The first step is to determine what your ideal career looks like. The more specific you are, the easier it will be to identify and then create it in your life. Sit back, close your eyes and answer these questions:
    a. Where are you working – in a hospital, classroom, outside in a park? Pay careful attention to your ideal surroundings, location, type of environment, the kind of people who surround you. In a career journal, online or on paper, jot down where you see yourself performing your work.
    b. Describe the activities in which you are engaged as you conduct your daily activities. Are people involved? Machines? What do you actually do? Are you talking, teaching, fixing, creating, writing? Be very specific about what you see yourself doing, using action words as described above. Once again, in your career journal, jot down what you see yourself doing as you perform your work.
    c. What are the goals of your work in your ideal career? Are you responsible for helping ill people get well, increasing investors’ wealth through finances, teaching children a new skill? A useful technique to assess this is to complete the following statement: At the end of my work day I will know that I am successful when I have ______. In your career journal, indicate what outcomes you are seeking in your ideal career.
  2. Create your workplace statement.
    From the information you have gathered in steps 1-3, create a workplace statement to guide your career vision. Your statement will look something like this:
    Every day I look forward to going to work. I go to (where) in which I (activities). I feel satisfied and fulfilled each day when I (goals).
  3. Translate your vision to your current position.
    In your journal, explore where the elements of your vision can translate to your current position. For example, if you are an accountant and your ideal activities involve teaching, consider how you can incorporate this activity into your daily work. Can you take on the role of training new employees? Perhaps you might consider leading lunchtime sessions for the office staff about some elements of accounting in their personal lives, maybe keeping track of their personal finances. Or, consider that you are a bankruptcy attorney but the goals of your ideal career involve helping children learn a new skill. You may wish to volunteer as a tutor at a local school or as a mentor in a community program. In your journal, write down the options for incorporating your vision into your current position. This is an opportunity for you to brainstorm. Write everything that comes to mind without regard to practicality or do-ability now. The evaluation process comes later.
  4. Discuss with your manager/significant other.
    If necessary, discuss your ideas with your manager. Determine if you have the latitude in your current position to train the new employees or lead lunchtime learning sessions. If you have home responsibilities, determine if volunteering in the local school or community can be worked into your family schedule.
  5. Find the opportunities.
    Once you have cleared the way for implementation, seek out opportunities to make it happen. Talk to your network. Be open to suggestions, and expand your list of contacts as you are searching for leads.
  6. Consider the possibilities for the future.
    When you have given your implementation plan a chance to become part of your repertoire of behavior, you can find opportunities to apply these skills to new situations and careers. Skills can be obtained anywhere; not just in paid work. Make sure you add them to your resume and begin to explore the possibilities to take them to your new ideal career, which you identified in step 2.
    These steps illustrate the simplicity of translating your IDEAL job into your REAL job. Perhaps you’ll discover that they’re not so far apart, after all.
    You’re now well on your way to Career Reinvention.

India Agricultural Equipment Industry Research Report: Ken Research

Business India Agricultural Equipment Industry Outlook to 2018 – Growing Potential of Rice Transplanters Market provides comprehensive analysis of market size of farm equipments such as tractors (50HP), combine harvesters (wheel type self propelled, tractor mounted, track type self propelled), rice transplanters, rotavators, power tillers and threshers in India. The report provides market share analysis of major players in tractor, rotavator, power tillers, rice transplanters and threshers market along with the company profile. The publication provides trends and development, average prices, future outlook and prospects of farm equipments along with the cause and effect relationship of several macro-economic and industry factors. The Indian agriculture sector has witnessed a considerable decline in the use of human and animal power for agricultural activities in recent years. This has paved a way for a range of agricultural equipments that have been introduced in the market.

A large number of these agricultural equipments are driven by tractors or diesel engines and therefore are swiftly transforming the traditional agricultural processes of the country into agriculture mechanization. Farm mechanization has improved the agricultural productivity by enabling optimum utilization of the inputs and by increasing the efficiency of the various farming activities. The growing income levels of farmers have boosted the demand for farm equipments such as power tillers, tractors, combine harvesters, rice transplanters. In addition to this, the acute shortage of labor resources for agricultural activities owing to the lucrative opportunities in the growing industrial sector is major factor responsible for the growth in the demand for agricultural equipments. The attractive subsidies given by central and state governments have also encouraged farmers to buy farm equipments. The Indian market of agricultural equipments was estimated of the size of ~ units by sales in FY’2013. The market has grown at a CAGR of 9.2% from ~units in FY’2008. Furthermore, the revenue generated by the industry in FY’2013 was estimated at USD ~ million, registering a CAGR of 12.9% during FY’2008-FY’2013. The Indian agricultural equipment market includes a gamut of agricultural equipments that are manufactured and deployed in different activities across the value chain of the agriculture industry. These include Tractors, Rotavators, Threshers, Power Tillers, Rice Transplanters, Self-propelled and Tractor-mounted Harvesters. Tractors accounted for the largest share in the agricultural equipment market of India representing around 66.1% of the total number of agricultural equipments sold in India in FY’2013, with a sales volume of ~ units during the year. The use of rice transplanters enables the farmers to save around 20 man days per hectare resulting in huge saving in cost on labor and time.

The rice transplanters also help in more organized transplantation of rice seedlings with uniform spacing and optimum plant density which is approximately 30-35 hills per square meter with 2-3 seedlings per hill. In FY’2013, VST Tillers and Tractors emerged as the major company in the rice transplanters market in India. The Indian Agricultural Equipment market is expected to attain a high growth trajectory in future years on the back of several industry factors and macroeconomic trends. The scarcity of labor for agricultural activities is expected to grow manifold in future years. Additionally, the current levels of food prices are expected to increase in future owing to the growing demand and increasing consumption. The demand-supply gap for the crops is widening as the agricultural land is shrinking and the demand for food is growing with the population. The high level of food prices would mean higher income for farmers. This will result in higher spending by farmers especially on the ways to enhance their agricultural output and productivity. Therefore, the demand for agricultural equipments among farmers is likely to increase significantly in next five years.

New Publication on Dinshah P. Ghadiali & his Spectro-Chrome therapy

Health Contemporary science is validating light and color as a beneficial therapeutic tool. It has been generally accepted that light and color affect the mind and body. Violent juveniles placed in a pink detention cell will relax, stop banging and yelling, and fall asleep within ten minutes. An estimated 1,500 hospitals and correctional institutions have incorporated the pink color in at least one room in their facilities. Conventional medicine uses color-light therapy in several ways. Blue light therapy is used to treat jaundice in newborns as well as to control chronic atopic dermatitis. Light therapy is also being used in treating seasonal affective disorder. These are just a few examples of the implementation of the ideas as proposed back in 1920 by a man far ahead of his time: Dinshah P. Ghadiali (1873-1966).

Who was this mysterious Parsee Indian? Why was he branded a quack by the AMA? Because laypersons could be trained to use his light healing science – called Spectro-Chrome – on themselves, it threatened the livelihood of health professionals. The medical establishment, drug industry and U.S. government relentlessly pursued him. They tried every which way, repeatedly bringing him to court; Dinshah was jailed ten times, but – convinced of his science – was unstoppable. Within five years of introducing Spectro-Chrome, Dinshah had trained, by his estimation, some 2,000 health professionals and laypersons in his healing art. The system received unanimous praise from its myriad users. Dinshah’s lonely journey into the mainstream world of health care, fervently followed by legions of physicians all over America, is an exciting, controversial and unforgettable story. If you like to read about it, look for Color War: Dinshah P. Ghadiali’s Battle with the Medical Establishment over his Revolutionary Light-Healing Science by Steven M.
