This has been another "shot heard aroundrepparttar 125598 world." The aftermath affects us all and will be far-reaching.

We must not letrepparttar 125599 dastardly acts of a few terrorists stop us in our tracks. That is precisely what they wished to happen. They wanted their acts of terrorism to paralyze us to proverepparttar 125600 power of their actions.

We cannot close our eyes and pretend it didn't happen. It struck torepparttar 125601 very core of our souls and hearts. The news coverage of these events has been in-depth and all- encompassing. There are few people onrepparttar 125602 face of this earth who cannot know ofrepparttar 125603 attack andrepparttar 125604 collapse ofrepparttar 125605 two towers.

The loss of innocent lives is so great it cannot be estimated at this point.

Where there are natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods and hurricanes we provide allrepparttar 125606 assistance possible and do our best to return things to normal as quickly as we can. We do not allow our business activities to come to a halt.

Continuing business as usual provides needed services and goods andrepparttar 125607 work involved gives us a viable outlet for our grief and sorrow.

A Single Word

Written by Dave Balch

There's no denying it; words are powerful. I'm talking P O W E R F U L! A single word can change your entire perception of a situation. A single word can completely changerepparttar effectiveness of a marketing or sales message to your market. A single word can have an effect on your entire business. Let me explain what I mean.

About 20 years ago I developed a software product for large mainframe computers. Remember that there were no PC's in those days; mainframes wererepparttar 125596 biggest computers normally used by businesses and those that had them typically had their own staff of programmers. My software was a tool designed specifically for those programmers and helped them with testing and debugging. Naturally, I had to clearly conveyrepparttar 125597 functionality of my product to my market (corporate programming groups), but it was complicated to describe. "...a tool that allows your programmers to manipulate data files and make quick changes and fixes for testing, debugging, and troubleshooting..." What was that again?

Then one day, like a bolt of lightening, it hit me. My product is an editor. Period. An "editor". What a concept! Why didn't I think of that before? An editor. Now it is crystal clear. Programmers know what an "editor" is. My software allows them to "edit" their data. Bingo! A single word changed my entire perception of my own product, and enabled me to clearly describe to my market exactly what it does. It also allowed me to list it in directories and catalogs whererepparttar 125598 listings would be most effective.
