    ( August 29, 2013 -- Born in projects, and viewing unbelievable African American statistics, capturing what young children are subject to is what Dr. Steven DavidSon calls the unspoken national epidemic.

    "If it is accurate that nearly 50% of Black males drop out of high school, and 7 of 10 children are born out of wedlock the nation is presently breeding a criminal class in numbers that will rival the largest armies in the world very soon."

    DavidSon takes a difficult issue filled with complexities, and helps an attentive listener understand.

    "A child is born into a poor family typically headed by a struggling single parent. Usually, there's more than one child in the family. The child is thrown into the general populous with neighbors in the same 'hood' all at varying degrees of age. Now the child has to determine to be a predator or prey to survive. If the child is going to be a predator the child has to assume the most social-pathic behavior possible. This is how the child gains acceptance. Or the child exhibits gay or transgender tendencies to navigate through the experience. Eventually, some may exhibit extraordinary athletic or entertainment skills that help to free them if they can avoid every predator. Often these with exceptional abilities are the objects of envy. Some predator ends the person's life."

    According to DavidSon the nation must address this issue, and look for ways to derail what he calls the unspoken national epidemic.

    "The African American community has doubled in the last 50 years. Given the current trend where half the African American males don't graduate from high school, they represent a potential criminal population the size of the military force employed in Iraq initially each year. The annual number of persons entering the prison system including all races was about 51,000 from 1980-2009. However, the potential criminal population of African Americans alone will be 90,000.

    The costs including community losses and funding for the criminal system will be untenable."

    According to DavidSon it's not as simple as a jobs programs with masses of African Americans unable to show the discipline to attend school.

    "Jobs would help, but we are talking community pathology and everything that feeds the condition. Liquor outlets, predatory loan and retail businesses, wayward clergy, entertainment feeding violence, sordid sexuality and other forms of deviance and more. The nation needs a miracle. This is the Civil Righteousness battle of this generation by far."

    One of the nation's top writers on contemporary Christian issues, Dr. Steven B. DavidSon is author of the Christ-based Series, and founder of the nation's exclusive Christ-based organization devoted to Christian counseling and education, the Association of Christ-based Clergy, Counselors, Educators and Educational Systems (A3CEES).

    ( August 29, 2013 -- (MDP), an online service that walks couples through the steps of how to file for divorce, recently looked at the division of debts and assets in the dissolution of a marriage and found that debts are seldom divided equally between partners.

    Division of assets also favored one party over the other, though the breakdown was much closer to 50/50. The findings come as part of a new study MDP conducted among 18,880 divorce cases.

    The Breakdown

    According to the study, assets were divided equally in 51.56 percent of the cases (9,734) compared to 48.44 percent where it wasn't (9,146).

    On the other hand, the difference in debt division was steep. In more than three out of four cases, one partner received the majority of debt -- a staggering 14,630 cases, to be exact (approximately 77.49 percent). Debts were divided equally only 22.51 percent of the time (4,250 cases).

    The study did not indicate whether these breakdowns favored men over women or vice versa.

    Reasons For Judgment

    In most states, earnings and assets acquired during the course of the marriage should be divided fairly between partners, but that doesn't necessarily mean the judgment will be equal. In some states, a judge could order one party to use separate property to make a settlement fair for both spouses. Judges will consider the earning potential of both spouses as well as the contributions made throughout the marriage and any other ongoing responsibilities (e.g. who has custody of the children). notes that in Alaska, Arizona, California, Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Mexico, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin, and Puerto Rico, "all property of a married person is classified as either community property (owned equally by both spouses) or the separate property of one spouse."

    "At divorce, community property is generally divided equally between the spouses, while each spouse keeps his or her separate property," the site added.

    How Will Your Marriage Assets And Debts Be Divided

    States' first inclination is to divide debts and assets equitably. They could stray from this general rule depending on the circumstances of the divorce.

    As far as the findings of the MDP study were concerned, divisions were made largely based on an accumulation of what partners brought with them into the marriage (separate) and what they acquired together (community). is an acclaimed cheap divorce service for individuals and couples, who wish to learn the do it yourself divorce while spending as little time in an attorney's office as possible.

    ( August 29, 2013 -- Online divorce forms service (IDF) recently reviewed findings from August that showed most divorce cases in the United States involve persons six feet tall or under. In contrast, those considered "above average height" seldom found themselves involved in a divorce proceeding.

    The Numbers Favor Tall People

    The IDF study involved 3,340 persons, who were going through or had recently been divorced. Not surprisingly, the group from five feet to six feet tall accounted for most of the cases at more than 86 percent (2,875 persons). Individuals below five feet, which is well below the average male and female height in America, accounted for an additional 3.98 percent (133 persons).

    The remaining 332 individuals (9.94 percent) were anywhere from 6'1" to 6'6" in height.

    Factors To Consider

    The study did not indicate the gender of persons involved, nor did it take into consideration the percentage of the whole population that would fall under the height ranges that were part of the study.

    According to Disabled World, however, the average heights skew high with the average American male clocking in at 5'10.2" and the average American woman at 5'4.6."

    While there are more persons over six feet living in the US than under five feet, it's easy to see how the trend could favor the group in the middle. But what's especially interesting is the divorce rate of other countries that have a taller average height than the US.

    Take the Netherlands as an example. In the Netherlands, the average male is more than six feet tall and the average female more than 5'6." According to a comparison conducted by the US Census Bureau, the Netherlands had just 2.9 divorces per 1,000 population compared to 5.2 in the US.

    The Takeaway

    In the US, people taller than six feet are less likely to get divorced than those who fall within the average height, probably because they're still the outliers. There are less of them, in other words.

    However, it's interesting to note that the one country with an average male height above six feet has a much lower divorce rate than the US. The findings definitely open up the possibilities for future study, particularly involving how the US stacks up against all countries with a greater average height., a California divorce service, provides one of the easiest, fastest, and most inexpensive ways to file online divorce in the United States.

    ( August 29, 2013 -- (CAW) reviewed recent data concerning the amount of charitable contributions given across the United States and found that baby boomers are outpacing all other groups with regard to the amount of donations made to non-profits each year.

    Despite making up about one-third of the donor pool, they're giving close to half of the monies received by charities each year.

    What The Numbers Show

    To be exact, baby boomers (individuals born from the years 1946 to 1960) comprise a little north of 33 percent of donors throughout the United States. In spite of this relatively low number, they're giving close to 45 percent of all individual contributions.

    These findings coincide with a Blackbaud study that showed boomers were 34 percent of the donor pool and giving about 43 percent of individual contributions each year.

    The Estate Planning Lesson Boomers Are Learning (And That Others Should As Well)

    It's important to note that in the above findings, corporations were not a part of either review. Frankly, most individuals do not have the giving capacity of corporations, which donate in part due to tax incentives. Many companies prefer to control the causes their money supports, and are more likely to donate heavily to charities if it means avoiding a heavier tax liability.

    That being said, boomers are already learning a lesson of which many younger generations should take note.

    According to CAW, boomers see in charities a way to reduce not only the size of their individual tax burdens, but also the size of their estate for easier distribution after death.

    By setting up a living trust and making cash or property donations now, many boomers are able to avoid problematic after-death situations for their loved ones, namely the inheritance tax and the threat of probate. allows you to create a living trust, estate plan, or will at minimal cost of time and money. Attorneys are not required, and all forms may be completed online, making life easier for individuals, who wish to pursue this option, and for their favorite charities to receive the intended support.

    ( August 29, 2013 -- Right when you think you understand credit card processing and have the perfect merchant account for your business, you get the call that you have been shut off...Consider yourself lucky, many merchants don't even get the courtesy of a phone call. Merchants are processing transactions one day and then wake the next to find that they have no processing options. This is happening more and more and it's going to get worse before it gets better...

    The obvious question being asked by merchants is: Why is this happening?

    Patrick Daly, Vice President, MIDsource has the answer. "There are several reasons why this is happening; however it boils down to risk vs. reward for banks and processors. If the profit has been stripped from an account, it makes no sense to keep the accounts on the books. Processors are reviewing their portfolios and eliminating many restricted classes and less profitable accounts." Mr. Daly goes on to say, "We have seen countless high risk merchants priced slightly above interchange lately. Many of these same merchants are now scrambling for a new merchant account."

    Moving forward in 2013 after the closure of thousands of high risk merchant accounts, it would behoove merchants, especially those in the e-commerce space, to understand the following:

    If you have a high risk merchant account, don't look for retail pricing. Selling products online and selling slices of pizza in the food court are two different worlds and should be priced accordingly. Pay (but don't over pay) the proper amount based on the risk associated with your account. The account will thrive and your processing partners will love your business.

    Provide good customer service. Your business will grow and charge-backs will be minimized. Charge-backs will kill your processing history and make it difficult to obtain other merchant processing accounts in the future.

    Work with groups like MIDsource that have multiple processing solutions and have the risk and underwriting expertise to find the best merchant account for your business. Have the right industry professionals on your side.

    MIDsource offers high risk merchant accounts for a wide range of industries. With an extensive network and banking relationships domestically and internationally, we pride ourselves in our ability to obtain direct merchant accounts and processing solutions for merchants worldwide.

    World's first single-step gas-to-liquids plant now in production at gas-flaring site

    Walloon Lake, MI., ( August 29, 2013 -- Gas Technologies LLC (GTL), manufacturer of the innovative GasTechno® gas to liquids process, announced today that it has successfully launched field operations of its first Portable Mini-GTL® production plant. Installed on an active oil field in northern Michigan, the plant is now fully operational and will serve as a demonstration site for the company's existing and future Early Adopter customers.

    Full production testing started Monday, August 19 and will continue at this Michigan site until the end of November, when it will move to its permanent customer location outside Dallas, Texas. This field demonstration plant will provide the design and engineering data for the customer's new planned $25 million commercial plant located on their stranded gas field in the Barnett Shale formation.

    The launch represents the world's first and only single-step gas-to-liquids production capability, a patented process that received the recent #1 ranking by patent quality among 100 companies in Michigan by Crain's Detroit Business. The new and improved process enables the conversion and monetization of flared or stranded natural gas, biogas, coal mine methane, and landfill gas at a mini-scale adaptable to 80% of the global methane reduction market.

    "This successful field installation is a significant milestone for the company and its Early Adopter customers," said GTL CEO Walter Breidenstein. "While we have previously proven and substantially improved our capabilities with the Mobile Trailer pilot plant testing started in November 2010, this field validation is essential to now launch the commercialization of our technology. With the only proven single-step process in the world, we are excited about our opportunity to become the global leader in a vast, underserved market."

    This new demonstration plant was the result of its "Early Adopter Program" announced in May of 2012, which required a $2-3 million dollar investment in the company's flagship "Mini-GTL" unit, designed to produce 43 barrels per day of GasTechno chemicals - the largest production capacity at a fraction of the cost compared with existing competitors offering gas-to-liquid systems. In late 2012, GTL modified the program to accommodate several Early Adopters who requested a smaller system at a lower cost for demonstration purposes. This newest system - the "Portable Mini-GTL" plant - was engineered to produce 4 barrel per day, at a lower investment level of $800,000 to deploy in the field.

    "Our small, dedicated team has worked very hard since July 2010 to overcome significant technical and financial hurdles," Evan Visser, the company's CTO, said, "Our Mobile Trailer pilot plant testing led us to breakthrough innovation in 2012 with the Portable Mini-GTL proprietary design and process that totally automated the small plant. Over 60 different electronic devices make this 25-foot enclosed plant fully operational and code compliant at the field site, a first of its kind in the industry. There is no competitor in the marketplace that comes close to our compact design."

    ( August 29, 2013 -- Sump pump installation is a comparatively cheap way to manage your basement flooding hazard. Find out the best sump pump brand, installation tips and other information in the following article.

    Basement flooding can become a very serious problem, as even a small amount of water may cause a costly damage to your belongings and ruin your health.
    Humidity gives rise to mold and mildew that often lead to breathing and other health hazards. Thus, investing in a sump pump may save you thousands of dollars.

    Best Sump Pump Brand

    Judging from the sump pump Basement Systems specialists reviews, submersible (as opposed to pedestal, "floor sucker", battery-powered and water-powered sump pumps) is the most effective and reliable system design. Their comparison was based on 5 characteristics - quiet operation, capacity, reliability, lifespan and lifetime cost - with submersible pumps leading at almost all points. According to the majority of customers, pumps from Zoeller Company are the best, though expensive. They are mighty; they come in cast iron or cast bronze construction and are great for dewatering needs.

    How to Install a Sump Pump

    If you are a handy person and don't want to overpay for professional sump pump installation or replacement, you may do it yourself. So if you opt for this path, be ready to hard work:
    Unless your home already has a sump pit, you'll have to dig it with a help of a jackhammer to break through the concrete. Before doing this, determine where water, utility and sewer lines enter your home. The pit should be put away from them at the lowest point of the basement at least 10 inches (30 centimeters) from the walls and close to a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlet.

    With the concrete removed, dig the hole to the recommended (by your sump pump manufacturer) depth, set the basin in it and fill the gaps with gravel 1 inch above the underside of the floor. Fill the remaining gap with concrete and allow it to set.

    After the concrete has cured, you can set the sump pump in the basin following the manufacturer's instructions. Drill a hole in the rim joist, connect the check valve, attach PVC discharge piping to the pump and put it through the hole. Extend this piping to the outside. Make sure water will drain away from the foundation and caulk around the hole in rim joist.

    Check the sump pump for any operation problems and don't forget that only a battery backup sump pump can save you from flooding in case of a power failure.
