With the alphabetical order it makes it quick and easy to find what you are looking for.Example: What is a Custodian Bank?A custodian bank is a special financial institution that carries the responsibility for protecting the financial assets of individuals or companies. These institutions can also be called simply custodians. Such outfits serve as a third party check that protects the assets they are guarding against the fund managers and any illegal activities they may pursue.Congress established these custodian banks with the Investment Company Act of 1940 in order to protect investors. Thanks to this particular legislation, investment companies must adhere to specific stringent listing requirements and must be registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission.The custodian bank performs a number of activities in their primary function of watching over the financial assets of businesses and individuals. They settle sales and purchases of bonds and equities and physically protect the certificates of these assets. These institutions also gather information about and income from such assets. When the assets are stocks this means dividends. When the instruments are bonds, they collect the interest from the coupons. The custodians also disperse information they gather, pertaining to yearly general meetings and shareholder voting. They handle any foreign exchange transfers as necessary and manage all cash transactions. Finally, custodians deliver routine reports on their various activities to the customers.Custodians banks provide reports on every trade or deal which they transact on behalf of the clients. They must be consistently delivered. Along with these reports they furnish information on the companies whose assets they hold besides information on general meetings. When a custodian is holding foreign shares or bonds, they will also have to change currencies as necessary. This is the case when the fund manager buys or sells foreign currency assets. It is also necessary when companies pay out dividends or bonds receive interest with these overseas financial instruments. Custodian banks are a critical component of the modern investment environment. Without them to carry out these functions, all of the important financial record keeping and housekeeping items would be neglected.Not all custodian banks are national operations in the United States. A number of the major international financial institutions offer these services around the globe. These are called global custodians. Such international outfits use their own branches in the various countries in which they operate to manage the accounts and assets for their customers. In other cases, they may employ other custodians to assist them with these services. In these types of situations, the customer assets will be held by pension funds.Note: Example shorted due to publish restrictions. All terms offer more than 600 words descriptions each.

The Open Door: A History of Tacoma Community College by Dale Coleman

On September 13, 1965, Tacoma Community College opened its doors to the public. The founding of the College was the culmination of four years of coordinated effort, steadfast leadership and grassroots community support. Built around the idea that educational opportunity is a critical component of a thriving community, TCC set forth on a mission to bring high-quality, affordable education to all, without regard to means or circumstance. Over the next 50 years, as thousands of students passed through the open door to previously unavailable opportunity and achievement, the strength and resilience of this simple idea would be tested. Through economic hardship, social upheaval, changing job markets and times of crisis both global and local, Tacoma Community College would prove to be an enduring educational institution. This is the story of TCC, as told by the students, faculty, staff and community leaders who helped to build, develop and defend Tacoma’s open door college.

Mentoring and Educational Outcomes of Black Graduate Students by Nicole Sullivan

The purpose of this research is to examine the ways in which mentoring affects black graduate students’ completion of programs of study. Performance is measured by completion of their graduate program, length of time taken to complete the program, grade point average (GPA), and overall attitude about their graduate school experience. On average, over half of all black graduate students leave their programs of study before completion compared to 25% attrition (non-completion of program of study) of white students.
A review of the literature suggests that any form of mentoring improves completion rates among black graduate students. Existing research further suggests that when paired with like mentors, such as same race or gender, black graduate students complete their programs at even higher rates. The existing research is, however, limited due to the age of the research and factors such as attrition by discipline. Updated research is needed to determine why, despite being admitted to graduate programs of study at the highest rates in U.S. history, black students are leaving without graduate degrees more than any other race.
Vincent Tinto’s theory of social adjustment states that students who are not socially adjusted are less likely to persist (complete their program of study). Because black students are attending Predominately White Institutions (PWIs) at the highest rates since Reconstruction, this research will examine ways in which black graduate students become socially adjusted and how it affects their persistence.
The anticipated results of the study are that black graduate students who had mentors completed their programs more often than those who did not have mentors. Additionally, those who had mentors of the same race, gender, or socio-economic backgrounds may report even higher percentages of completion. In contrast, those who did not have mentors may report lower percentages of completion.

Field Studies: Challenging Project Based Learning For High School and College Students (Middle School Students, too!) The “Socratic Method” in Action! by Charles Cranston Jett

Help Your Students Develop Critical Skills
Through Field Studies

Field studies are considered by many to be the most powerful tool to teach the Critical Skills. A field study is a project conducted by a team of students to address a problem or issue in the “real world” under faculty supervision. They provide rigorous and learning rich experiences where students can practice and master their skills while working productively with an educational partner.
Given the opportunity, virtually any student can participate and contribute as a field study team member. Field studies offer an educational experience quite different from the traditional classroom – they are, in a sense, the Socratic Method in action. It is the process that is important – not the content. Experiencing the process of a field study is the ultimate goal for students at all levels of secondary and higher education. While field studies benefit all participating students, they provide an unparalleled experience for the college-bound student.
Field Studies provides specific steps for teachers and coordinators to lead teams of students through the process of conducting such projects – from identifying the problem or issue to be addressed to creating a work plan, collecting data, performing analysis, and delivering a clear and articulate final report. Not only do such in-depth exercises provide students with confidence in their ability to tackle real-world problems, they help students prepare for college and careers while making meaningful contributions to their communities – a win-win endeavor for all involved.

Why do you invest? You invest because you want to make money and become rich, using the power of compounding. No wonder, most investment tools revolve around stocks, and it is important that you stay in the game.

A number of people make so many fundamental mistakes with their hard earned money invested in the stock market that they end up losing and as a result, many people commit suicide.

Sorry, to bring up this point so soon, but this is the truth, and this has repeated itself twice in the last 15 years – with the Dotcom bubble burst in 2001 and the real estate bubble burst in 2008.

But is there something that we can do about this? Can we learn from people who have made money through their investments? Can we heed their advice? What kind of advice have they given? Does it have to do with any equation? Understanding the investment tools? Our psychology? Patience? Or are there other factors that we are not aware and they are aware of? Is there some kind of divinity that helps them? Or does God help them to become rich?

Well, the list of questions can go endless, but the truth is that most people who have made money through investments have followed some very simple methods, and have used some extremely simple tips that have seen them through good times and bad.

The objective of this book is to highlight the tips that great investors have used to make money. The idea is not to follow them verbatim, but to understand what these tips mean, and why they are important for you to follow.

This will not guarantee you to become rich overnight, but it will give you the tools to keep yourself in the game, and learn the tricks to manage your hard earned money.

The book starts with investment advice from some famous investors, and then described 25 tips that will help you sustain in the investment market, staying focused and make money.

I believe you will have a wonderful time reading this book and understanding the tips to keep you sustained in your investment journey.

I am Successful: Journal Affirmations for Girls by Elizabeth D. Gray

An affirmation on its own is a powerful thing. However, flexing the muscle of an affirmation with the conscious expression of your own words, thoughts and experiences is a transformative thing. Use this affirmational journal to not only absorb the powerful messages in each affirmation, but to accentuate them tenfold by the expressions of your own creation.

Excellent as a journal for one girl or as a tool to use in a group setting for writing and discussion. Each entry covers a different topic and then allows space for the reader to do their own writing. Topics are particularly relevant today. Doesn’t talk down or issue simple edicts, such as “love yourself,” but takes a different approach, which respects intelligence and individuality. There is an emphasis on empowerment, self-esteem and personal accountability.

Gifted With Grit

We hear the term gifted
And we equate it with guaranteed success
Because the gifted individual
Has the advantage
Of some special intelligence
They’re ahead of the game
But I am among the luckiest of girls
For I am gifted with grit
I am gifted with the resolve
To never give up
No matter how long it takes me
To get where I want to go
I am gifted with tenacity
When you tell me I am not capable
You’ll witness me prove you wrong
I am gifted with courage to forge ahead
Even when I am certain to fail
Several times before I succeed
The gift of grit is perhaps more powerful
Than any other gifted advantage
And why is that so?
Because a person with grit
Makes up for any weakness
By the sheer resolve of will
And a person who refuses to give up
Though challenged in the most monumental ways
Can overcome any obstacle
I refuse to be limited by any label
That describes me as anything but gifted
Because I most certainly am gifted
Gifted with grit

Classroom Management: The First Step to Effective Teaching by Coogan M.Ed., Johnny

This book discusses the situations that will materialize in your classroom and how to deal with them. It addresses how real students respond to lessons, not the way you’d like them to. Few books relating to classroom management teach you how to handle students when lessons don’t go as planned, but Johnny Coogan will help you stop the problems before they happen. His system of creating a wolf pack will transform your class into a thriving learning environment.

Johnny Coogan wrote his Master’s thesis on new teacher support and he’s a mentor for new teachers at his school site. He’s been teaching high school since 2000, and this book is the cornerstone of why he still loves it after all these years. He’ll explain how teaching a classroom starts with management, no matter what subject you teach.
