I started out learning artwork all the way back at the Brooklyn Museum Art Classes to prepare for and was accepted to the High School of Art & Design in Manhattan. With below average grades but an extremely good artwork portfolio I was accepted into the Cooper Union Institute for three years Certificate Program. When I was nearing the legal age to drink, I applied and was accepted to the S.U.N.Y. Purchase Conservatory of Visual Art. After graduating with a 2.5 G.P.A. I was hired by the Board of Education to teach Chess and Computer Classes. Around the second year of teaching I was notified that a trustee of our family had enough money set aside to pay out a book contract expense. When I went back to school yet again at New Horizons C.L.C. I certified in Office Programs and for some reason or another was able to solve all of these technical problems with finishing a book publishing job. I handed that over to my dad, Sam whom wrote 7 reprinted books full time for three years. I published my first book under my own first name this year, Peter Sloan Teaches How to Draw Cartoons. I had an agreement with many artists over my ten years of academy of art training if I am to write a book on artwork to follow the tradition of many cartoon artists and publish my first book about how to draw the face. Most of my work is computer technical and books about games, but following with my agreement to write my very first book about cartoon portrait artwork. Enjoy listening. 1. Language: English.

Beneficiary abuse happens to people in all walks of life and usually occurs when you are already grieving the loss of a family member. Our firm, Albertson & Davidson, LLP, has handled hundreds of cases of trustee abuse, and that is just a small fraction of the cases out there. Through this book you will gain insight into the rights you have and some of the actions you can take to stand up and fight back for your inheritance. There is hope. You do not have to suffer beneficiary abuse, but you do have to take action. No one else will fight this battle for you. Your legal rights can only be enforced through your choice to take action.The book covers the following six main areas where beneficiaries are routinely abused by bad trustees:Abuse involving the distribution of trust assets;Abuse involving the provision of trust financial information or accounting to the beneficiaries;Abuse involving following the trust terms (such as in creating and funding sub-trusts);Abuse involving the diversification of trust assets;Abuse involving the unfair treatment of one or more of the beneficiaries; andAbuse involving a family-owned business.Each of the six areas is addressed in its own chapter. Each chapter provides a factual scenario to illustrate the typical problem people have with the given abuse area. You will then find recommendations on how we, as trust- and will-focused lawyers, would deal with the problems presented in the factual hypothetical. And finally, you will find a simple-to-understand explanation of the laws that apply to each given topic. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jay Deane.

A sweet Story with a twist : Usually I absolutely hate novels that are supposed to be a collection of letters and/or diary entries for this simple reason, they are as transparent as saran wrap. Something along the lines of Im just jotting down a casual letter to inform you that I just had a terrible fight with so-and-so, heres what we said word for word complete with speaker attributes Thats why I was so pleasantly suprised with this book. The writing is entertaining, intelligent and always realistic. That is EXACTLY how a person in their late teens, early twenties writes (I know, Im a letter writer in that age group) and it is so refreshing to read an author who knows what she is talking about on the subject. Judy Abbott is most certainly not a Pollyanna, she teases, gets angry and argues but she has a nice nature and always manages to patch things up. She is an orphan who writes to her mysterious benefactor whom she dubs Daddy-Long-Legs. Because he is her fairy godmother for all purposes, she confides in him even though she knows he will never answer. The ending is marvelous with a great little twist. I think this book is great for girls 8-80 and am sorry I did not read it sooner The book consists almost entirely of letters written by Judy. Judy is an orphan from the John Grier Home, an orphange she was raised in since she was a baby. Her future seems very bleak until one day she is unexpectedly offered the opportunity for a paid college education to become an author by one of the orphanages trustees. In return, she has to write monthly letters to the unknown trustee who is known as Mr. John Smith. She calls him Daddy-Long-Legs because she saw his tall shadow as he left the building. Her letters are very entertaining, and often impertinent. That is really all I want to tell of the story, but here are a couple of quotes from the book that I loved: It isnt the big troubles in life that require character. Anybody can rise to a crisis and face a crushing tragedy with courage, but to meet the petty hazards of the day with a laugh -- I really think that requires spirit. I think the most necessary quality for any person to have is imagination. It makes people able to put themselves in other peoples places. It makes them kind and sympathetic and understanding. It ought to be cultivated in children.
