Git Rich or Die Trying
Have you ever done something that you was not proud of, like indulge in criminal activities? I have, like Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson said “Git Rich or Die Trying.” Honestly, I believed that I would get rich from my criminal activity. I started with small petty crimes, working my way up to mediocre blue collar crimes and planed to become a Boss of organized white collar crime . I knew the path that I had taken would soon come to a life altering halt.
The first crime that I committed was snatching a gold chain and running. Although it was small in nature, it was the confidence booster that I needed to unleash a flood of similar crimes. A pure adrenaline rush to almost get caught but almost only counts in horse shoes. A purse, a wallet, loose change and even weapons, I wasn’t prejudice in what I took or who I took it from. Just as long as I sharpened my skills and mastered the first level of my new found career. At this point I moved to more physical crimes that brought in more money like, breaking an entering and strong arm robbery. These particular crimes could not be reported just think about it. Have you ever heard of a dope boy calling 911 because he got robbed of his product?... The more robberies I pulled off the better I became at my craft but along with that my name got hot in the neighbor hood and was ringing at the LRPD. Because of that I hit a couple of small businesses that did not bring in much money. With money being the fuel to my fire, I felt forced to move into a unfamiliar area sooner than I had planed.
After a few days of research i carefully picked through my friends and family to organize a squad that would help me to achieve the biggest crime of my career, manufacturing counterfeit money. A close friend of mine had 3 ink-jet printers and a couple of computers at his recording studio. I printed a sheet of $10's then $20's,…...

Operation Get Rich or Die Tryin

...Operation Get Rich or Die Tryin Albert Gonzalez’s convicted TJX hacker Albert Gonzalez was sentenced to 20 years in prison crimes were committed mostly between 2005 and 2008 while he was drawing a $75,000 salary working for the U.S. Secret Service as a paid undercover informant. The string of hacks began in 2005 when Gonzalez and accomplices conducted war-driving expeditions along a Miami highway and other locations in search of poorly protected wireless networks, and found easy access into several retailer networks. Once inside a local TJX outlet’s network, the hackers forged their way upstream to its corporate network in Massachusetts. Gonzalez obtained a packet sniffer from best friend Stephen Watt, which he and accomplices installed on the TJX network to siphon transaction data in real time, including the magstripe data on the credit and debit cards. Gonzalez’s sentencing follows two others related to the TJX hacks. Stephen Watt, a former coder for Morgan Stanley, was sentenced to two years in prison for providing the sniffer that Gonzalez used in the TJX hack. Watt was also ordered to pay restitution to TJX, jointly with other accomplices, in the amount of $171.5 million. Humza Zaman, a former network security manager at Barclays Bank, was sentenced to 46 months in prison and fined $75,000 for serving as a money courier for Gonzalez. He was charged with laundering between $600,000 and $800,000 for Gonzalez. Gonzalez’s sentence is among the stiffest imposed......

...Memorandum April 12, 2012 ------------------------------------------------- SUBJECT: Smart Couples Finish Rich Analysis Mr. I would like to follow up with your inquiry made during last week’s meeting regarding David Bach’s Smart Couples Finish Rich. I have since completed reading the book and will present and discuss several of the author’s major insights which I believe will be most beneficial to you. Bach presents the content of his book in a 9 step process which results in a financially successful future for couples. The book is part personal finance and part relationship counselor. It discusses how money can often be the root of many arguments for couples and how to avoid this problem by working towards a financially secure future together. I will discuss the following the three most important points in Bach’s book and why they can be so valuable to implement into your life: * Be open with your partner with regards to finances and work towards goals together * Small frivolous spending is what keeps many from becoming rich * Start early in building your retirement fund An early step in Bach’s process is “Plan Together… Win Together” long term planning with your spouse and developing a system which you can assess your goals. This entails keeping track of financials and establishing a common ground between the couple. This is very important so you can establish a benchmark system so...

The Rich Get Richer and the Poor Get Poorer

...The Rich Get Richer and the Poor Get Poorer? I do believe that capitalism does cause the poor to become poorer. Capitalism is described as an economic system in which the trade of a country is controlled by private owners for a profit. According to Hernando de Soto’s research, the lack of formal property rights limits growth, and without this growth the poor remain poor. For example, most poor people informally own their residence. Because this kind of resident doesn’t have any property rights they also don’t have access to loans to improve their living environment. It’s an ongoing cycle of ugly. No property rights equals no money to improve your poverty stricken life. The same rights apply to businesses. A lot of businesses refuse to legalize because of business corruptions such as excessive regulations and bribery. Because these businesses are considered illegal they must remain small to stay out from under the government’s radar. And because they have no property rights they don’t have access to business loans in order to develop and grow. Anything that contributes to growth is a capital, and in the Classical growth model growth is emphasized on capital. So I don’t really feel that a poor person’s income would increase or decrease because in the classical growth model it’s all about saving. Saving leads to investments which increases capital and eventually leads to growth. It is, however, much harder for a poor person to save in the first place. They are too......

...Taiwan and the Competition for Diplomatic Recognition TIMOTHY S. RICH Diplomatic recognition is generally seen as fundamental to the modern state system. The traditional views of recognition however focus almost exclusively on political or ideological rationales, ignoring other foundations on which other countries base establishing diplomatic recognition. Focusing on the Republic of China (Taiwan) suggests a more complicated view where economic self-interest on one side and national pride on the other may undermine traditional conceptions of recognition. Using the ROC-PRC diplomatic battle as a case study, this paper hopes to shed light on two questions: why, despite the PRC's rise as a global power, a country would continue to formally recognize the ROC and secondly what does the ROC receive in exchange for such high-cost endeavors to maintain recognition. In this case mutual ideological rationales have greatly diminished while I contend that economic factors have predominantly maintained this diplomatic battle. In addition, previous research often focuses on major world powers granting or withholding formal recognition to smaller states. In this situation, poor countries with typically little political influence are the major players, suggesting different rationales behind recognition. Methodologically, this paper blends qualitative and quantitative analysis to uncover factors affecting recogni- T IMOTHY S. RICH is a doctoral student in political science at the......

Right to Die

...A controversial topic in the world today is having the right to take ones own life in certain conditions of pain an suffering of unbearable pain or an untreatable illness. The proper term for this act is called Euthanasia, which translates from Greek roots as “good death” (Kastenbaum 267). Having the right to die is a powerful right that if were made legal could create many dark roads, which there would be no turning back on once entered. On the other hand having the right to die when diagnosed with an untreatable illness and given the option to an ideal death as some might put it by passing away under euthanasia. I believe that living in a free society that allows citizens the right to their own death under the right circumstances decided by that one person and their condition that is either physically or mentally daunting. Having other people dictate when this time in life occurs or not occurs to me just does not make sense. Giving the power to someone to decide what is best for them is in all that one persons decision and should not be dictated by anyone else. The right to die first entered America in 1976 in a New Jersey courtroom. Before this the act of taking one’s life by euthanasia was thought only for animals or that of a sinner. During this time in the 1970’s religion had much more of an impact with more followers and believers in the everyday lives of the American people than compared todays society (Gallup). In 1975 Karen Ann Quinlan, 21 collapsed and stopped......

Rich Meaning

...  Throughout this society we have many different meanings of word rich. Rome is rich with ancient ruins. The Mona Lisa is rich with artistic value. The Walton family is extremely rich. The last sentence is what many people hope and dream about. What is the meaning of rich? You can ask people what rich means to them, but you will find many different answers. I believe being rich is not just having material wealth, but also having inner richness that lasts beyond money and worldly possessions. Some may think rich is having cars they don’t need, and having houses they don’t need. Different people, different meanings, but what does rich really mean? If you look in the dictionary you will find seven to eight different definitions of the word rich. The one definition that is the driving force in this day and age, states that rich is “having abundant possessions and especially material wealth.” I think most people strive for this. With this kind of rich every other meaningful thing in life seems to come together, you can buy any car you want, any house you want, and even any girl you want; but what is life if you only strive for material possessions? I strive to be rich in personal values, family traditions, and most importantly rich in my heart. Television has many examples of the stereotypical rich person. On one channel there may be Oprah Winfrey who in the past two years has passed the $1 billion net worth mark, and on another channel Bill Gates, who has for...

Get Rich or Die Tryin

...Get Rich or Die Tryin Albert Gonzalez was a cunning career cybercriminal who once worked on both sides of the law. At one point in his criminal career he actually worked with secret service agents to help take down another hacking ring of several hackers. But Gonzales soon returned to his criminal roots soon after the sting where he would begin to hack into major corporation’s networks in order to steal credit card information. One of these corporations just happened to be TJX. The TJX network was not secure enough from the start. The company was using inadequate wireless security protocols. They used WEP security (wired equivalent privacy) which is easy to crack and a good hacker could break into this type of network security really fast. A hacker with a laptop could simply sit outside the store and break into the network in less than a minute. TJX should have been using the much stronger wireless security protocol WPA (WI-FI Protected Access Protocol). TJX also stored card data improperly. They stored credit card information such as pin codes and cvc codes which are on the back of most credit cards. PCI Data security standards states that sensitive data such as the PIN and CVC codes should not be stored. So the company broke protocol by storing this information. Even though a network breach occurred, this vital card information may have not been exposed if it wasn’t stored on the company network. Finally, the stored data was not encrypted. Another PDI protocol was broken......

...How to become rich As I remember there is a pop song “I want to be a billionaire so freaking bad, buy all of the things I never had”, this melody still stick in my head all the time. How to become rich? I ask myself this question every day. Become rich has different meanings for different people. The term rich can also be applied to the accumulation of other things besides wealth. Things like good health, close relationships with family and friends, a rewarding career, and enjoyable hobbies can make people feel rich as well. Of Course everybody dreams to being rich, who wouldn’t, but being rich in wealth without being rich in life would in my opinion to be pointless. Being in good health allows a person to enjoy life with or without having money. Not having to go to the doctor constantly for things such as heart trouble, diabetes, depression, or arthritis is a blessing. When we can be mobile without pain to do even the simplest of things, this allows us to live an enjoyable life. I could be a person without the convenience of monetary value and have a wonderful family and friends to share my life with that would make me rich in life. No one can put a price on having a family that is there for you through good times and bad. When the time comes that you need a shoulder to lean on or someone to just listen to you vent, nothing beats family and friends. True friends will always pick you up when you fall or stumble, share secrets with you, and they will be the first to give......

Time to Die

...Time to Die Janet Dansbury PHI 208 Ethics and Moral Reasoning Instructor: David Pinkowski April 20, 2015 While ending a human life is a permanent solution to what may be a temporary problem and is ethically unacceptable, a person suffering from long term and unbearable pain, from which there is no relief in the foreseeable future, should be permitted to choose to the right to die, because the choice to discontinue a life of misery, should be something a person is allowed to decide without it being a legal issue. A constant battle with pain does not provide a high quality of life so this choice provides an outcome that would cease the suffering of a terminally ill individual. A person who is in unbearable pain should not be forced to continue a life of misery if there is no chance of their condition improving or if they are in the final stages of a life threatening or debilitating disease for which there is no cure or comfort available. “A person who is virtually certain to die within a given amount of time and is experiencing or will experience a lot of pain before he or she dies should be able to choose an earlier, less painful death”(Mosser, 2013). A person in this position should have the right to choose to be allowed to die if they so desire. Utilitarianism denotes that an action that causes the greatest amount of happiness for the greatest amount of people would make it the correct or acceptable action. The utilitarian takes into consideration the...

Kiyosaki V1.0(9-9-2002) If you find and correct errors in the text, please update the version number by 0.1 and redistribute. Ripped by Tangtang INTRODUCTION There is a Need Does school prepare children for the real world? "Study hard and get good grades and you will find a high-paying job with great benefits," my parents used to say. Their goal in life was to provide a college education for my older sister and me, so that we would have the greatest chance for success in life. When T finally earned my diploma in 1976-graduating with honors, and near the top of my class, in accounting from Florida State University-my parents had realized their goal. It was the crowning achievement of their lives. In accordance with the "Master Plan," I was hired by a "Big 8" accounting firm, and I looked forward to a long career and retirement at an early age. My husband, Michael, followed a similar path. We both came from hardworking families, of modest means but with strong work ethics. Michael also graduated with honors, but he did it twice: first as an engineer and then from law school. He was quickly recruited by a prestigious Washington, D.C., law firm that specialized in patent law, and his future seemed bright, career path welldefined and early retirement guaranteed. Although we have been successful in our careers, they have not turned out quite as we......
