In Honor of Financial Literacy Month


Jessica Wagner, CPA, CMA recently announced the release date of her first book in the “Family Who Reads Together Stays Together” series: Kevin, the Money Master.

Kevin, the Money Master, makes learning about personal finance fun for kids.

For Immediate Release

2Many adults have big problems with money management. Most experts agree this is at least partially the result of poor education about money as children. The good news is Don’t Stop Publishing, LLC has stepped up to educate kids in this area with the April 15, 2018 marketing release date of author and financial expert Jessica Wagner’s new children’s book Kevin, the Money Master: How a Little Boy Learned to Master Money and How You Can Too. The new book is aimed at six- to ten-year-old children and will help them learn the basics about managing money.

“I worked in finance and accounting for many years, and after starting a family of my own, I realized how important it is to apply financial knowledge at the household level,” Wagner said. “This book is written to stimulate proactive money discussions within families and to provide parents with a tool to teach personal finance at an early age so that children can grow into financially literate adults.”

Kevin, the Money Master, tells the story of eight-year-old Kevin, who was irresponsible with his money until he learns the simple (but potentially life-changing) lessons revealed in the book. Delivered in a fun and engaging way, Wagner opens the door to early financial literacy and will help establish a financial dialogue between children and their parents, grandparents, or other loved ones who read the book with them and take the time to answer questions kids may have about the principles within the story.

Qatar’s Threats of Using Chemical Weapons Against its Dissidents

Washington, DC – Today, the independent DC-based organization SAPRAC is expressing its concern regarding threats made on Qatar’s national television on Monday, October 9, 2017, by an academic from Qatar University, Mohammed Al-Mesfer, who presented himself to the public as an adviser to the Emir of Qatar. He suggested the use of chemical weapons [1] to end the protest of Qatari tribesmen against Doha’s decision to revoke the nationality of Al-Murra tribe’s leader, Shaikh Talib bin Shuraim [2], along with 54 of his tribal members including 18 women. He also suggested the confiscation of their funds, their expulsion from the state and making an example of them for others. This comes after the revocation of the nationality of the tribal sheikh of Al-Hawajer and his family on September 29, 2017, for rejecting Doha’s actions that threaten the internal security of surrounding Gulf states [3].

SAPRAC condemns the Qatari official’s threat on national television, who said that “no matter how many of them gather, either ten thousand or two hundred thousand, a bomb of poison gas can crush all these tribes, and personal championships will no longer exist.” The 1925 Geneva Protocol prohibits the use of chemical weapons [4], yet the Qatari Government allowed to have these statements issued on national television to express the direction of the government its officials.

This inhumane approach was reported earlier by the Qatari Human Rights Committee in 2005, which included the citizenship revocation of over 300 Qatari families that equate to about 6,000 citizens. In addition, Qatar continues to support the North Korean regime by employing thousands of North Korean labor for its construction projects, in spite of UN Security Council Resolution 2371 on August 5, 2017 [6], to impose restrictions on North Korea’s foreign currency revenues.

SAPRAC cautions against the danger of Qatar becoming an outlet for rogue states seeking to overcome international sanctions. The acceptance of thousands of workers from North Korea and Iran represents indirect Qatari support for these two countries and their nuclear programs that threaten international peace and security. We reaffirm that this is a clear violation of international laws and appeal to the international community to intervene and stop abuses to protect the Qatari people.

August 14, 2017 – Have you ever been stuck in your own tracks, wondering why your life was turning in a consistently negative direction? As surely as particles keep revolving in space, and human lives are birthed; the law of attraction is constantly at work. This is independent of whether we intentionally put it to work or not.

Most of the time, people are generating negative vibes and going by this law, their negative vibes are producing far more negative results for them over time. As sad as that is, it’s the truth. If you ever catch yourself asking how on earth you got into a situation that was predominantly negative, or why your life seems to be getting worse and worse; ask no more- the solution is in your hands. YOU have attracted those occurrences by constantly vibrating negative energy.

THE LAW OF ATTRACTION AND GRATITUDEIt’s not quite difficult to look at your present condition and from there, conclude that your life is in shambles or that you might never get out of a particular stagnant state. In fact, that is what most people would do, and so, this cycle is constantly perpetrated in their lives. However, this shouldn’t be so, because when you use the present to shape your future, it is whatever that was in your life at that time that would be replicated in the future.

“The author, Avinash Singh, has brilliantly found a way to deliver quantum physics to a level of understanding that any individual can practice and see actual results. Bravo! This is a must read for anyone that truly wants to work smart and not work hard by using the natural laws of the Universe such as the Law of Attraction and Gratitude.” said King Raj Singh, a buyer on Amazon!

If you want to attract more things to be thankful for, what better way is there to do that than to be grateful for what you currently have in your hands, or for the circumstances in which you find yourself? A grateful heart is certainly a magnet for positive events, and if you would look at life through such lens, there is no doubt that your altitude in life would shock even the best future predictors out there; even yourself.

You have power in your hands- the power to change your life, the power to change the world! This book is capable of such a great degree of transformation if you would let it.

Why Are Dentists’ Incomes Declining?

Dentists’ incomes are on the decline. In 9 out of the last 10 years, dentists have seen a drop in their earnings and the American Dental Association has forecasted that 2017 will be another down year for dentist’s incomes. Though the economy has rebounded from the Great Recession, dentists’ incomes have not bounced back. What’s behind dentists’ declining incomes? And what can dentists do about it?

Supply and Demand

The most basic principles of economics tell us that when supply is high and demand is low, prices will fall. This is what has happened in the field of dentistry.
Since the mid-2000’s, the demand for dental services has decreased. This could be, in part at least, due to the economic recession. However, even as the economy has improved, demand for dental treatment procedures has remained low. The dental industry is unique among most medical fields as the clear majority of dental work is discretionary. Patients can go years…even a lifetime without suffering complications from a missing tooth. Certainly, we all know friends or family members who have less than perfect teeth. However, the cost and fear of discomfort have been a sufficient deterrent to keeping patients from seeking cosmetic or orthodontic treatment.

Things aren’t good on the supply side, either. Despite the relatively weak demand for dental services, there is an increasing number of dentists. This trend is expected to continue in the coming years, driving down prices further.

Hopefully, the demand for dental services will pick up again eventually. With unemployment falling, more adults should begin seeking dental care. However, there are other factors unrelated to the current state of the economy that is responsible for dentists’ declining incomes.

Corporate Dental Chains

One cause of dentists’ declining incomes is the rise of large corporate dental chains. Again, basic economics come into play. Big corporate dental chains have the advantage of economies of scale. By sharing resources among many different locations, these chains lower their operating costs. Keep Reading
