Ghostwriting: Are The Wrong People Sharing Your Story?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

I spend a lot of time performing research for projects, and I’ve discovered that many of the companies that have the best information do the worst job of presenting it. They have the expertise, but it’s clear that the wrong people are responsible for sharing what they know.

Now, it’s not really their fault. Each of us has specific skills and areas of knowledge. But just because someone in your company is an expert on a particular subject doesn’t mean that they’re also an expert at presenting what they know in written form. In fact, subject matter experts who are also effective writers are a rare breed. Some of the most brilliant people I’ve worked with were also some of the poorest writers. Or, their writing skills may have been decent — they just didn’t know how to translate their subject matter into easily understood prose.

Fortunately, there’s a simple way to ensure that your company’s expertise is being presented as clearly and effectively as possible: work with a professional ghostwriter. No, I’m not talking about someone who develops novels about supernatural beings. A ghostwriter is someone who takes what your subject matter experts know and transforms it into well-written content for your website, blog, enewsletter, magazine articles, white papers, speeches, or any number of other channels.

Beyond producing higher-quality work, a key benefit of ghostwriting is that it makes the most of your subject matter expert’s time. Whether that expert is a physician, an attorney, a manager, a C-suite executive, a salesperson, or any other role, the time it would take to write and refine is time away from their regular responsibilities or billable hours. You want that person to use his or her limited hours in the most productive and profitable way — and that’s probably not agonizing over sentence structure.

Skilled ghostwriters can also help you bridge the communication gaps that often exist between experts and their audiences. A great example is a program I handled for a CPA firm that served financial institutions. While bankers and CPAs are both financial experts, their professions don’t always communicate well because of differences in terminology and jargon. I would interview the firm’s accountants (as well as attorneys and regulators) to gather information that demonstrated the CPA firm’s expertise, and write it for trade magazine and newsletter articles using language that was more familiar to bankers. Not only did it provide information to help bankers do a better job of running their banks; it gave them the confidence that this CPA firm actually understood and could communicate with them.

How does ghostwriting work? Once you’ve engaged the services of a writer, he or she will probably either sit down with your subject matter expert or conduct a phone interview. There are two reasons for that step. First, it provides the ghostwriter with the basic information for the project. Second, and just as important, it gives the ghostwriter the opportunity to hear how the subject matter expert talks and thinks. That way, the finished work will actually “sound like” it came from the expert, and not from an outsider.

Next, the ghostwriter will draft the article, post, or other content and submit it to your expert for review. That’s also an important step, because the material will be published under the expert’s name, so he or she has to be confident that it’s accurate, as well as comfortable with the manner in which it’s being presented. The ghostwriter then makes any edits or corrections before submitting a revised draft for final approval. When the story or post eventually appears, it carries the expert’s name. Nobody else is aware that an outside writer was involved — that’s why the process is known as ghostwriting.

Some managers worry that ghostwriting isn’t ethical. It isn’t right to put an employee’s name on something he or she didn’t create, they reason. Nonsense. The information in the article, white paper, or other piece is based entirely on the knowledge of your employees. The ghostwriter is simply conveying it in a way that’s clearer and more communicative. In fact, you’d be surprised how many of the articles, books, speeches, and blog posts “authored” by top executives from companies you respect are actually crafted by ghostwriters.

Are your communications materials presenting your company’s expertise as clearly and effectively as possible? Are the experts within your company spending more time than they should trying to fine-tune those messages? Maybe it’s time you found yourself a helpful ghost.

The Habit of a Journalist

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Out of all the activities, journaling according to me is the healthiest activity. You feel relieved after spilling out every single thought going through your head. It is a fun activity as well because you play with your own words and ways of expression. Everyone should make journaling a habit.

Most of us feel like giving up writing after a week or two. Have you ever wondered why does this happen? This is because we don’t make it a routine habit. We actually think of it as a hectic task but not as a pleasurable and joyful activity.

At the very beginning we get stuck at finding the right topic to write on. One easiest way of getting rid of this problem is to right about what you’ve done for the whole day. Write down about your daily routine, your work, your love life, things you like and things you dislike. Writing about your own self is one of the simplest topic you can ever find.

Secondly, reading can also help. Searching for random stuff on internet including journals written by different people can give you various ideas about what to write and how to write it. Reading helps you learn better ways to express your thoughts and ideas. This is how you learn how to express your inner thoughts and feelings through relevant and affective words.

Try to find out inspirations. Your inspirations and aspirations are basically the sources of motivation. Bookmark the journals, articles, quotes or texts you like. Keep a record for present and future reference.

Environment and your state of mind are also quite important. The time when you wake up in the morning is considered as the period when you can effectively utilize all your senses to produce excellent work. Moreover, it is important to be in a relaxing environment where you feel good. It affects your mind more than you can imagine and it enhances the productivity rate as well. For instance, while sitting under a huge tree with a cup of tea, you can think about so many things and can transform all those thoughts and ideas into some amazing words. All you need is a good diary with a fine pen like that of Parker or Pelikan.

In the end, all I want to say is if you want to write, just start doing it. You will feel a lot better and productive. Mark my words.

Lone Life Of A Writer

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

View About the World

The sun rises every morning tearing the darkness of night. The people start their daily activities and they continue till the time of sunset. An orange and yellow sky covers the entire atmosphere and people start returning from their workplaces. Housewives start preparations for dinner. The kids are back from the schools and tuition. If we pull our attention from a busy and hectic schedule, we can see the flock of feathers (birds) returning their homes. The sun sitting on the vast ocean bed and going down step by step. Once again the lamps and candles are brought back into action. Finally, the darkness enters every nook and every corner. But these series of events do not really matter much upon a writer’s mind, heart and soul. A writer’s mind is like a particle of sand that moves with the wind but some particles refuse to leave that place resulting huge layers of sand and sand lakes. A writer’s mind is like one of the lowest layers of those sand particles. The more the sand comes and settles on the top most layer, the more he/she gets disconnected from this real world and the more he/she enjoys that isolated state. A writer always tries to find something that connects him to his true identity making him spiritually alive. This ritual continues and a writer gets engrossed in the pseudo world and living every second and every moment of their life.

Loneliness Is Focus

Real things happen when we are alone and depressed. Even psychologists say that to achieve great things you need to be alone. Solitude is a bliss. Loneliness not only helps you to focus and concentrate but also cleans and nourishes your brain by generating the chemicals of relief and relaxation. A writer likes to be and is alone for a major part of his/her life. They have nothing against this world but it’s the way they want to be. They discover new and unimaginable things in their loneliness. A writer is hardly seen in public, chatting with people and speaking non sense things. They are very much concerned about their surroundings because wrong surroundings might poison their mind resulting in changing the course of their thoughts. Also, a writer might receive his award but next day he is back on his expedition of a new and unique story.

It’s hard for us to understand the psychology and mentality of a writer but they always know who they are and what they want in life. They are the crazy ones who are not understood by all the people, in fact, very few can understand them.

Fearless and Game changers

When you are alone, you lose many things with respect to your family and friends. But every sacrifice has a sweet fruit which tastes better than any other fruit in this world. The power of sacrifice rewards us with a fearless attitude and this attitude keeps on multiplying till the time we are nurturing the gift of loneliness given to us by nature. Our true nature must be found and practiced regularly, so that we can help it to grow and take infinite benefits from the same. These are the writers who can change the entire world. These are the writers who bring a revolution. These are the writers who can speak against anyone if they feel is wrong. No matter how powerful the person is.

Microsoft Project Server Vs Microsoft Project

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

There are a number of project managers today that use Microsoft Project to create and track project plans to keep tasks on schedule. Project is a fine application for small endeavors with one person in charge. However as a project grows and more decision makers are involved, managers need an application that can provide enterprise-wide project management.

On-line Management with Project Server

When coordinating a large venture, basic management tools like Microsoft Project may not serve the manager's needs. It is a standalone application that can be used only on one computer. All project information is in one place and all decisions can be made only at that computer.

Once there is a large endeavor with a management team, this lack of access becomes a problem. What is needed is a project management tool that can be shared company-wide and allow all managers to track their respective tasks without needing to wait for printed reports.

Project Server was designed with exactly that capability in mind. All team members can access the application from anywhere on the company network or over the web. Coordination and communication is easier when everyone is on the same page.

Each Team Member Has a Role

Just because everyone can access the software, that does not mean everyone has the same capabilities. Individuals are given permissions appropriate to their role in the plan and in the company.

Project managers use the basic Project Professional application just like they have in the past. However their updates and changes are transmitted to the server where they can be viewed by other managers and incorporated in their plans.

Team members who don't use Project directly can still access the server to see what their tasks are, what the status of the overall plan is, and can send status reports to be used by managers.

Even interested parties not directly involved in completion of the tasks, such as executives or investors, can be given access over the company network or the web so they can monitor the progress. Comprehensive security settings ensure that each person is given needed access without any excess privileges.

Project Server Training

Even experienced users of Microsoft Project will benefit from training on the unique capabilities of Project Server. The enterprise-level features of the software greatly increase the size of the projects that can be handled but may not be obvious to new users. Tasks such as team building, resource substitution, and information pooling can be used more effectively after taking instructor-led courses.

The transition from Project to Project Server is a major step for any business but with guidance and proper planning, it is a move that can be made with a minimum of complication. The added capabilities will be invaluable to any mid-size to large business.

How to Spot Fraudulent Online Freelance Writing Jobs on Popular Sites Like Craigslist

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

If you’re new to freelance writing, not only can it be difficult to tell a legitimate job from a scam, it can be downright impossible. This is because online freelance writing jobs scams are evolving. Like all criminals, the scumbags behind them evolve as more and more people become hip to their methods. So, how can you protect yourself? How can you avoid being taken advantage of? Following are three ways to do so.

1. Look for Contact Information: Not only should you look for it, but try contacting the company via the methods they provide.

While many companies post anonymously on sites like Craigslist to avoid being bombarded by job seekers, sometimes a legitimate company will get back to you to at least acknowledge receipt of your materials if you apply.

Scam companies, on the other hand, may contact you with “offers,” eg, sign up for our membership site for only $2.95/month; subscribe to get job leads delivered directly to your inbox for only $1.95/month. Once they have access to your account, they’ll usually debit your account for anywhere from $40 to $97 per month or more – every month.

2. Look for Details: Speaking of presenting materials, scam companies operate at both ends of the spectrum – either they’ll ask you for specific things up front, or they’ll ask you for very little. It all depends on what their scam is.

Some want free content, so they may request “original” writing samples; others want money, so they’ll just ask you to send in specific (sparse) info so they can get your contact info and spam you later with their fraudulent offers.

3. Bulk Content Requests: If a company contacts you with a large content order, and won’t pay a certain percentage up front, they’re probably a scam. Their game is to get free content.

I’m an SEO writer. One day, I received an email from a company wanting 40 articles. I don’t remember what it was on. They provided me with a keyword list and asked when I could complete the order. I said within 3 days and that we require a 50 percent deposit to get started. They balked; I walked.

Many times, companies will say that they’ll pay you after you’ve completed a certain number of articles. Only, you never hear from them after you’ve delivered the initial content.

There are more ways to spot online freelance writing jobs scams, eg, if they ask for money for job leads, or if they ask you to submit “original samples” for no pay, etc. Just do your due diligence and if it doesn’t sit right with you – for whatever reason – go with that. Don’t talk yourself into something. Your subconscious is at work here. Listen to it.

Report Writing – How to Format a Business Report

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Introduction

Report writing is a time consuming business so it is a great shame if, having devoted all that time to writing your report, the quality is such that hardly anyone can be bothered to read it. Quite frankly, most report readers do not actually read all the report; they are too short of time. You might as well know it and accept it – that is normal. They only read the parts that interest them. Frequently these are the summary, the conclusions and recommendations.

Of course, some readers do need all the details you so carefully included, they are specialists, but most do not. Most readers just need two things: that the information they want is where they expect it to be so they can find it, and that it is written clearly so that they can understand it.

It is similar to reading a newspaper. You expect the news headlines to be on the front page; the sports coverage to be at the back; the TV listings on page whatever and the editorial comment in the middle. If what you want is not in its usual place then you have to hunt for it and you may get irritated. So it is with a report.

There is a convention as to what goes where. Stick with the convention and please your readers. Break the convention and people may get slightly irritated – and bin your report.

So what is that convention, the standard format?

Standard Sections

Title Section . In a short report this may simply be the front cover. In a long one it could also include Terms of Reference, Table of Contents and so on.

Summary . Give a clear and very concise account of the main points, main conclusions and main recommendations. Keep it very short, a few percent of the total length. Some people, especially senior managers, may not read anything else so write as if it were a stand-alone document. It isn't but for some people it might as well be. Keep it brief and free from jargon so that anyone can understand it and get the main points. Write it last, but do not copy and paste from the report itself; that rarely works well.

Introduction . This is the first part of the report proper. Use it to paint the background to 'the problem' and to show the reader why the report is important to them. Give your terms of reference (if not in the Title Section) and explain how the details that follow are arranged. Write it in plain English.

Main Body . This is the heart of your report, the facts. It will probably have several sections or sub-sections each with its own subtitle. It is unique to your report and will describe what you discovered about 'the problem'.

These sections are most likely to be read by experts so you can use some appropriate jargon but explain it as you introduce it. Arrange the information logically, normally putting things in order of priority – most important first. In fact, follow that advice in every section of your report.

You may choose to include a Discussion in which you explain the significance of your findings.

Conclusions . Present the logical conclusions of your investigation of 'the problem'. Bring it all together and maybe offer options for the way forward. Many people will read this section. Write it in plain English. If you have included a discussion then this section may be quite short.

Recommendations . What do you suggest should be done? Don't be shy; you did the work so state your recommendations in order of priority, and in plain English.

Appendices . Put the heavy details here, the information that only specialists are likely to want to see. As a guide, if some detail is essential to your argument then include it in the main body, if it merely supports the argument then it could go in an appendix.

Conclusions and Recommendations

In conclusion, remember that readers expect certain information to be in certain places. They do not expect to hunt for what they want and the harder you make it for them the more likely they are to toss you report to one side and ignore it. So what should you do?

1. Follow the generally accepted format for a report: Summary, Introduction, Main Body, Conclusions, Recommendations and Appendices.
2. Organize your information in each section in a logical fashion with the reader in mind, usually putting things in order of priority – most important first.

Good luck with your report writing!

Aircraft Lap Joint Modifications Keep an Aircraft Flying

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Aircraft lap joint modifications

Specialist teams embody lap joint modifications and aircraft structural repairs on fleets of 737-200’s and and 737-200 cargo aircraft and also 737-300 with increasing frequency.

Determined by the Lap Joint SB 1177, only Licensed EASA AND FAA structures engineers can oversee this type of project. SB737-53-1179 and SB737-53A-1210 have also been applied to these aircraft.

Unforeseen defects can be found on inspection during this modification. Aircraft structural repairs for this same reason can also be required outside the scope of SB737-53A-1177.

Airwothiness directives for all Boeing 737-100, -200, -200C, -300, -400, and -500 series aircraft, have become prevalant for the unsafe condition of fuselage skin cracks adjacent to the skin lap joints due to scribe lines. This damage can be a hidden problem, often hidden under resealed or repainted surfaces. Cracks develop after the aircraft has returned to service, can initiate at any point, or at multiple points, along the length of the scribe line. Established cracks in the wing structure can link up. The damage is caused by using the wrong tools for removing paint or decals.

Scribe line damage can also occur at many other locations, including butt joints, external doublers, door scuff plates, the wing-to-body fairing, and areas of the fuselage where decals have been applied or removed. Rapid decompression of the aircraft can be the result of fatigue cracks resulting from scribe lines on the pressurized fuselage structure.

The remedy consists initially of inspection for cracks in the fuselage skin at lap joints, butt joints and external repair doublers. Detailed inspection is defined as an intensive visual examination to detect damage, failure, or irregularity. Intense lighting, surface cleaning and elaborate access procedures may be required.

Letting Go of Family Members That Hurt Us

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

In a perfect world, family would always be there to support you and make you feel secure and safe. Unfortunately that is not always the case. Many of us have one relative or another that is hurtful … more than just sibling rivalry or tough love. Family members that push us beyond our comfort zone and help us learn and grow are a wonderful asset, even though there are moments when we don't feel appreciation for how they affect our life. But what happens when our family members cut us down and wear us out? Is it ever okay to cut those ties and just say good-bye?

The most loving family members will sometimes make us uncomfortable. They will show us our flaws and how we can improve. Although no one likes those moments where we feel bare and vulnerable, every mistake visible to the world, these moments are the ones that can help us become better people. The great family member will show you the tarnish, but then sit with you and help you clean and polish until you gleam again. It is an experience that although uncomfortable still feels productive and safe. This is a positive relationship.

But there can be another version of interaction that looks similar, only there is no rebuild after all the blocks are knocked down. There are people in the world that see only themselves and are not bothered by damaging those around them in their self-serving acts. We have all known people like this, and usually it is very simple to deal with. If a friend, acquaintance, or co-worker is the kind whose words sting and whose presence is uncomfortable it is a cinch to dismiss them from our daily existence. There is no need to keep them close where they can hurt us over and over.

There are times, however, when that pain comes from someone that should be safe: a parent, aunt or uncle, sibling or even grandparent. This is more than just being shown your human flaws; this is never being accepted or just plain okay. Time and again you are disrespected or disregarded, even though you pour energy and love into the relationship. Being your relative has put this person in a position of power because you are different: you actually crave that positive interaction. And then in seeking out the affections you need you set yourself up to be repeatedly hurt. Constantly giving and never receiving back that love and support will leave anyone feeling hurt and empty.

From time to time we all make mistakes and can appear selfish. Only when it is a truly consistent pattern should you ever alter your actions toward a loved one. Keep in mind that you have the power to make decisions about who is in your life, and if a relationship is truly unhealthy for you it is okay to let go. Never cut ties in anger as being hurtful will not make you feel any better. These relationships easily make you feel undeserved guilt and the point of severing ties is to remove that source of guilt, so if you choose this route make sure you go about it in a way that you can feel good about.

You are the only person that can decide whether you need to cut ties bonding you to another. If you choose to let go of a family member keep in mind that it will hurt for a very long time. You may find closure important, but be careful about how you approach the subject. Verbal communication of your intentions may become too emotional. If you suspect this will be the case, write a letter. A letter allows you as much time as you need to transform the mess of feelings into words that make it all more accessible to the recipient. This will allow you to be clear about the pain that you've been feeling without sounding overly angry.

Unfortunately, some of us have family members that hurt us. As painful as it may be, sometimes the best thing we can do is let them go. This means letting go of our expectations and eliminating our ability to be hurt over and over by a trusted loved one. Sometimes it is possible to take this power away from a person while still keeping them in our lives, sometimes not. Just keep in mind that demanding respect is not selfish as long as you give it in return. No one deserves being mistreated.

Does Plagiarism Or Ghostwriting Amount to Copyright Infringement?

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

Ghostwriting is a profession by which a professional writer is paid to write books, articles, stories, reports, or other content which is credited to another person[1]. Various celebrities, executives, political figures etc. hire ghostwriters to do the work for them and then they claim the work as their own.

A ghostwriter may be asked to edit and refine a rough draft or he may be asked to create an article from start to finish in which case the employer may give him a couple of points or a basic idea of what he requires. The time period spent by the Ghostwriter on writing the work depends upon the work or a time period set by the employer. The cost of the same would range from between $30,000 to $ 100,000[2].

Plagiarize means to appropriate (ideas, passages etc) from another work or author[3]. It involves wrongfully appropriating someone else’s ideas, theories, research results, or even words and phrases and presenting them as one’s own[4]. Plagiarism is frowned upon all over the world. This is looked at very closely especially at Universities which require their students to write a dissertation or a thesis for obtaining a passing grade.

Infringement of copyright means any copy including any colorful imitation, made or imported in contravention of the provisions of the Copyright Act, 1957[5]. The question that rises is whether plagiarism would amount to copyright infringement? The same can be answered through an illustration. Suppose an individual borrows a friend’s paper and passes it of as his/her own, it would constitute an academic offence and will have an impact upon his/her academic record. If the same individual has this very same paper published as his own and the original author gives his/her consent to the publication, then it may be a case of plagiarism but it won’t be a case of copyright infringement[6].

In Universities, when a student is required by the rules of the institution to do a thesis or dissertation by himself, giving the same to Ghostwriters would amount to a contravention of the rules and guidelines laid down for the same. Thus the action of handing in another’s work as the individuals own is illegal in nature and would attract punishment.

To determine if a case of plagiarism amounts to copyright infringement, there exists three conditions. They are as follows:

1) the plagiarized work must be protected by copyright

2) the author has not given authorisation for the usage of his work

3) false attribution of authorship[7]

By plagiarizing, an individual is in a way stealing the hard work put in by another to be his own. The basic idea of IPR protection is to reward the individual who has put in his skill and labour into the creation of the work. Attribution of the same by another person is unacceptable.

Ghost writing on the other hand is a method by which both parties are satisfied by the arrangement they draw up. If we look at it closely we see that the Ghostwriter knows beforehand that his work will be turned over to the individual who employs him, to be used in a manner which the employer wants. The Ghostwriter is given a very high remuneration for the same. The remuneration is the reward for his work. The Ghostwriter is aware of the same and is happy to hand over his work for the remuneration. There is no plagiarism in the same because there is no wrongful appropriation of the Ghostwriters work. He willfully turns over the work and gives up all rights in it for a due consideration.

The question is then whether copyright protection should be provided for the work. As the Ghostwriter is the original creator of the work, in whom should the copyright subsist? The question is answered by the fact that the Ghostwriter agrees to turn over all rights of the created work to the individual who employs him. He is given a good remuneration as his reward for the same. Thus it can safely be said that the copyright vests in the

employer rather than the Ghostwriter.

The concept of Ghostwriting is on a steady increase. It is not something which is ethical in nature but in contemporary times, it is one which is very much in existence.

There is another issue in ghost Writing- the question is:

Would Ghost Writing amount to passing off?

To illustrate, when a fan of Jeffery Archer buys a book where the author is shown to be Jeffery Archer he expects to purchase a novel written by Jeffery Archer. If the novel is written by someone else then is the reader not deceived into buying a book which he believes to be authored by Jeffery Archer. Its obvious that is this day & age publishers would like to publish as many books in the name of a “Best Selling” author & therefore Ghost Writing becomes economically expedient when the author himself is not able to churn out enough books.

Writing in Journalism

Kostenlose Immobilienbewertung

A journalist is someone whose profession is journalism. He/she gathers, processes, uncovers and disseminate news items to a heterogeneous audience. Journalists are always abreast of major happenings and seen at event grounds- live or recorded- scooping for news. One can work at a radio station, television, print outfits and online news medium. To become a journalist, you must have zeal, interest, motivation and determination to succeed on the field.

Studying courses such as journalism, mass communication or media studies earns you a degree/college certificate upon graduation. It also allows you to learn the theoretical and practical works that are useful after graduating.

You can intern with any media station to learn more or be gainfully employed as a junior journalist with an entry position because you are a fresh graduate with no experience. Exposing one to the field comes next. You are attached to a senior journalist who will teach you how to conduct one-one or personality interviews, write interview questions, report live happenings from event grounds and write news stories following the station’s in-house style. Interviews can be a telephone interview or a physical interview. There are also observation sessions. This is when you observe what the senior journalist is doing and emulate such.

Writing news stories largely depends on the type of event you are covering be it political, economy, education, health. 5W’s &H is an important feature of any news story. This is What, Where, When, Where, Why and How. Your opening/lead paragraph is known to be the basis/preamble that nudges your audience to either listen, watch further or read more. Your opening paragraph should contain 2 or more 5Ws & H. Objectivity is the watchword of Journalism, do not take sides while writing your story.

You are your media’s eye at the event so you are expected to write in details, be brief and concise, correctly spelt names and pronunciation, Verify all data collected with reliable sources. Your source can be a person who is a first-hand eyewitness of an event. You need to respect the source’s rights. If he/she do not want to be known, you should write anonymously. Their lives or work may be at risk when you mention the source’s name or work address.

Get your facts- audio and video actualities, pinpoint facts that need further verification as this can serve as a scoop for such story, ensure to attribute all information gathered. Ensure you leave out information when you are in doubt than writing incorrect news item and misinforming the audience. This is to avoid slamming your media outfit with libel, slander or defamation.

No man is an island of knowledge. After you must have written your story, read and read again before submitting to the Editor/Senior Reporter for vetting. Final Check is important before submitting.

Being on the field as a journalist allows you to see the world from the perspective of the eyewitness especially in war-stricken zones. In cases like this, safety first.
