When You Wish Upon A Slogan T-Shirt

Rummaging through the pile of t-shirts Kaiel began to feel disheartened. Picking up t-shirt after t-shirt they were all for girls and this was now the last shop he could try. His mum stood patiently in the foreground chatting to the shop assistant whilst she waited.

Clasping his hand around what felt like a protruding logo he pulled it upwards through the pile. Unfurling it, he smiled in disbelief as the cartoon on the t-shirt seemed to smile back at him. “Mum Ive found one” he shouted eagerly.

Taking the t-shirt from him she looked at him lovingly, he was such a sweet little thing and so polite for a ten-year old.

After an eventful day Kaiel went to bed early. Putting the t-shirt on over his pyjamas he snuggled up and dreamed of fantastic places and was accompanied by the very same character who was portrayed on his t-shirt. Imagine his surprise when he awoke to find that a cute, blue, bunny-like character with huge floppy ears was stood over him smiling profoundly.

“Hi my names Max” the cute cartoon said enthusiastically. “Erm, Kaiel, my names Kaiel”. “Nice to meet you Kaiel, want to go on an adventure”? Still shocked Kaiel managed to mumble “Sure”.

Muttering some words that Kaiel could not make out Max caused a portal to appear in the middle of the bedroom. Taking Kaiels hand Max guided him to the portal.

A light, fuzzy feeling ensued when they were in the portal and things seemed to blur around them. Reaching the end they jumped out and were in a beautiful field surrounded by trees and plants that Kaiel did not recognise, they were nothing like the ones he had seen in the garden.

Keeping hold of his hand Max calmly told him where they were and explained that he had taken him to the age of the dinosaurs so that he could learn while having a fun adventure. Kaiel reeled in shock at the thought of being chased or eaten by a dinosaur.

Seeing his concern Max laughed profusely and assured him that whilst they could interact and learn from the experience that no residents of the times they visited could hurt or see them. They were merely there to watch and learn. Reassured by Sams words they left the vicinity of the portal and started to explore.

There was only one dinosaur that Kaiel really wanted to see and that was the fearsome Tyrannosaurus Rex. Pointing in the distance Max showed him where they would need to go to see one and they headed off in that direction.

Hearing a screech they averted their eyes above them to see a Pterodactyl flying gracefully above. Max informed Kaiel that in the twentieth century palaeontologists referred to Pterodactyls not as dinosaurs but as flying reptiles and they were carnivores which meant they ate meat.

Looking in awe Kaiel gazed at the amazing creature flying above him and noticed how its amazing wingspan almost blocked out the sun as it was that expanse.

Will Kobe Bryant look out for Lakers?

This week, with the release of the official salary cap numbers and onset of formal contract signings, was supposed to bring clarity to the NBA. Instead it left us debating the kind of obligations not covered by the collective bargaining agreement, a hazy realm of morals and values.

You could gather as many lawyers and accountants as you want and you still couldn’t come up with a definitive answer to the question: What do the Lakers owe Kobe Bryant? Conversely, how much does he owe them?

These are the central questions governing the Lakers as they make their key decisions for the next few years. Should they go all-out for another championship in Kobe’s shrinking window among the league’s elite, or should they embark on a long-term strategy to win down the road? Should Kobe forsake the fair compensation coming his way in order to facilitate the Lakers’ moves?

The Lakers have paid Bryant a quarter of a billion dollars during his NBA career. They’ve put him in position to win five championships. In return he has played through every circumstance short of being strapped to a hospital gurney, and has scored more points than all but three players in the history of the league.

So far it appears the Lakers are operating under the premise that they’re beholden to Bryant, the guy they’ve been tied to since 1996. It’s not the way things usually work in Los Angeles, where spouses and leased cars are often returned at a similar rate. The Lakers used their one-time amnesty provision on Metta World Peace‘s $7.7 million salary, even though taking Bryant’s $30 million off the books would have had a more dramatic financial impact and still provided an opportunity for him to return in 2014-15.

A promise to cut Kobe loose (along with axing Mike D’Antoni) also would have been a much more meaningful sign to Dwight Howard than those “Stay” billboards that the Lakers were committed to the center.

Dramatic moves? Surely. But if you think about it, they would have been no different from what the Lakers did in 2004 when they were desperate to retain Kobe. They let Phil Jackson go and traded Shaquille O’Neal to Miami. When it came to choosing between Kobe and Shaq, the Lakers went with the 25-year-old over the 32-year-old. They also went with the more popular of the two. Lakers fans were infatuated with Kobe, and growing increasingly frustrated with Shaq.

Kobe won the crowd. And if there were any doubts that he still holds exalted status, he quelled those when he made his way out to the Lakers bench on crutches, shortly after Howard was ejected from the Lakers’ final playoff game. The crowd responded with its loudest cheer of the day.

It’s why the Lakers are riding with Bryant, who turns 35 next month and is coming off a major injury, over the 27-year-old Howard, who sent neither the franchise nor its fan base into mourning when he decided to leave for Houston. It’s also because Howard built no equity with the Lakers. He didn’t win a single playoff game.

Accomplishments don’t always mean obligations. Paul Pierce played 1,102 games for theBoston Celtics, helped them hang their 17th championship banner, scored more points in the green and white jersey than anyone other than John Havlicek — and yet those things didn’t allow him to finish his career in Boston. There’s no provision in the salary-cap rules for that, no way for the Celtics to retool while keeping Pierce aboard at a salary commensurate with his service. So now he’s a Brooklyn Net.

The Celtics chose their future over honoring Pierce’s past effort, or fielding a competitive team in the present. Is that fair to Pierce, or the fans, who will still be charged full price? Let’s just say the Celtics are operating at an obligation deficit right now.

You know an organization that shows a balance of zero “debt” right now? The Clippers. They got the best available coach (even though he technically wasn’t available) and paid him a salary most coaches don’t get anymore, they’ve got their two biggest stars — Chris Paul and Blake Griffin — under long-term contracts, and they filled out their roster with role players such as J.J. RedickJared DudleyDarren CollisonMatt Barnes and Ryan Hollins.

That might explain in part why Paul declined a free-agency tour of his own. He could have squeezed another personnel move or two out of the Clippers, or lured other teams into rearranging their rosters to accommodate him.

“I didn’t feel like that would be fair,” Paul said. “I’m pretty aware of what could have happened, or where you could go. I’m pretty knowledgeable about the situations. There was no need to put any of that added stress on anybody.”

So he told the other teams not to waste their time, committed to the Clippers from the outset, then signed the paperwork at the first possible opportunity. Then again, I’d be pretty eager to sign my name to a contract that had $107 million coming my way, too.

We won’t see Kobe command such big numbers again. The salary-cap restrictions mean that if Kobe wants to continue playing beyond next season and bring in the best available talent, he and the Lakers will have to reach agreement on a salary that pays him below his worth. Even if he can’t produce at the same level, you could argue he still deserves a max contract based on all the years that same concept — a salary ceiling — prevented him from receiving his fair cut of the tickets, jerseys and sponsorships he sold. But he’ll be forced to choose between competition and compensation. I’m guessing the competitor will win out.

Shaquille O’Neal took a $7 million pay cut with the Miami Heat in 2005, a move that enabled the Heat to reconfigure their roster and bring in the pieces that won them the championship in 2006. In 2007, Kevin Garnett’s reduced salary (he made about the same in the first three years of his new contract as he did in the final two years of his previous, landmark contract) made it easier for the Minnesota Timberwolves to send him to the Celtics in the trade that redefined his career.

Bryant could be asked for an even steeper drop-off, up to $20 million a year. After the Lakers showed their faith in him this summer, next year will be his time to return the favor.

Hospital Dust Containment is Essential for Healthy Medical Facilities

Hospitals and other medical centers need to take measures to avoid the release of contaminants into the air. Repair and maintenance workers take actions that could release these particulates. It is important for these types of activities to be carefully handled to avoid that problem. In fact, regulations are strict in this area of maintenance and repair in medical facilities. Workers need to know how to perform the maintenance without contaminating the area around.

What are the essentials of hospital dust containment?

1.Areas must be isolated during maintenance or construction. Any area where maintenance or new construction is underway must be kept separate from the active areas of the hospital or other medical facility. Repairs in small areas can use a containment cart built for that type of work. Construction may require using an anteroom setup to keep contaminants in the construction area and away from the hospital area.

2.For hospital dust containment, negative air pressure is essential. Negative air pressure happens when you introduce a machine that draws air out at a rate that is higher than the amount of air coming into a space. This negative air flow helps to pull contaminants out with the air flow. This helps to direct the contaminants into an air scrubber or out into a space for release. This is the step that some forget.

3.Air scrubbing is another part of hospital dust containment. An air scrubber takes air and draws it through a series of filtration systems. These systems grab particulates and keep them secured while releasing the clean air out. An air scrubber is essential for keeping the released air free of contaminants. This promotes the clean air of the surrounding hospital spaces. Without an air scrubber, the particulates would eject out into areas where patients are located.

4.A clean job site is a basic of hospital dust containment. When dealing with any area, a maintenance worker has to take constant steps to keep the work area clean. This helps to prevent particulates from getting onto the shoes of those walking by. This routine helps to promote a cleaner space in the hospital or other medical facility.

In order to maintain a healthy hospital environment, you need to take proactive hospital dust containment measures all the time. There is no situation where it is not necessary for a clean medical environment. All workers need to know how to handle this situation at all times.

Creative School Fundraising Ideas

Looking for school fundraising ideas that are out of the ordinary, creative and fun is easy if you really sit down and think about it. First find an interest in the community that you are targeting. It is helpful if they can identify with your cause and actually believe in it. By making the community see that they are involved in your goal, you are encouraging them to support you. At the same time, you are making it worth their while.
Fundraising in school should be fun. People who are enjoying themselves at your event are likely to be more charitable and would have a tangible thought that they feel they are getting something for their donated money.
There are plenty of school fundraising ideas to choose from. When choosing one, it is important that it represents your cause and your group. Sometimes involving the entire group in the process will promote team work and ultimately help your group.
One classic idea for a fund raising event is selling raffle tickets. The money acquired can be used to purchase prizes for the winners. It would also help increase your profit if some of these prizes are donated by parents or by businesses in the community. Remember the less you spend, the more profit your group will make.
A fundraising suggestion that would surely persuade school participation is a school bazaar. Invite parents and other community members to feature their businesses in a school bazaar. By doing this you will allow them to advertise their merchandise and services to the entire community. The partaker would be allocated their own booths and the school can charge a payment for each booth they rent.
Another brilliant idea to raise funds for the school that would involve little or no money on your part is auctioning services or talents of students in the local community. You can come up with a directory of donors, and their corresponding talents or services they would provide. An example of this might be, a student donating lawn mowing. The school will auction this service off to the highest bidder and will earn the cost of the bid.
Last but not least, you can never go wrong with the safe route and choose some tried and tested fundraising ideas. Some ideas may include garage sales, car washes, exclusive movie premieres or special screenings, concert and theatrical plays.
