...productive until I’m exhausted, dehydrated overextended, overwhelmed, or otherwise ready to snap. There are still days when my instinct is to push myself to the limits for reasons I may or may not fully understand in the moment. Even though my body, mind, and spirit can take so much, I try to learn from these days as I go. Since I haven’t yet discovered the secret formula for complete balance, I’ve come up with a few simple ways to give my self a break when I’ve been pushing myself too hard. Since I like to run, I go to the gym, or I participate in some type of aerobics. By staying motivated, I can pace my self and not take on too much at one time. I allow myself a little extra sleep when I’m off of work. In order for me to recharge my self, I take long hot baths. It’s awfully hard to stress and over-think when you’re engaged in something fun and expressive. Even if it takes just five minutes, I take time to meditate throughout the day. I surround myself with positive and supportive people. Everything that I have accomplished in my life makes me feel good because I know I have worked hard to get where I am today, and I am very proud of my achievements. I have learned many things about myself through feed back from my friends, peers, and co- workers. I keep my emotions under control and I listen to what is being said. I am always open for change and this is how I have grown over the years. When working for someone, I get this......

Checks and Balances

...What is 'Checks and Balances?' Checks and Balance is a procedure set in place to reduce mistakes or improper behavior. Checks and balances usually ensure that no one person or department has absolute control over decisions, and clearly defines the assigned duties. The existence of checks and balances within an organization prevents any one person or department from having too much power, and forces cooperation in completing tasks. We can also define Checks and Balances in a corporate organisation as below Internal control mechanism that guards against fraud and errors due to omission. In a system with checks and balances, the authority to make a decision, and the associated responsibility to verify its proper execution, is distributed among different departments. These department are kept logically and physically apart, and no one department can complete a transaction all on its own. For example, the purchasing department orders goods, the stores-department receives and compares them with the respective purchase orders, the quality assurance department inspects and verifies their quality, the accounts department verifies the invoice amount, and only then the comptroller authorizes the payment for the purchase. This process emphasizes interdependence without interference, and creates a data trail or paper trail for auditing. While we can define it in a Government parliament as Governmental Extension of the separation of powers doctrine, under which each branch of......

Balance Scorecard

...Origin of Balance Score Card Balanced Scorecard has been launched twenty years ago as a first set of principles for balanced strategic Objectives and Measures/KPIs setting and measurement. The “parents” of Balanced Scorecard are Dr. Robert S. Kaplan, Baker Foundation Professor at Harvard Business School and Dr. David P. Norton, the founder of the consulting team that contributed over the past two decades to the development of Balanced Scorecard into today’s integrated and aligned management system. That company is now called ‘The Palladium Group’ ( and is based in Massachusetts, near the Harvard Business School. Since their first article about Balanced Scorecard, published in 1992 in the Harvard Business Review, Drs. Kaplan and Norton have published five books, which have marked the evolution of the BSC framework and of its implementation methodology, starting with ‘The Balanced Scorecard’, in 1996 and ending with ‘The Execution Premium’, in 2008 (now also translated in Romanian, soon to be published). Over the years many consulting or educational organizations have tried to add to the Balanced Scorecard initial concepts, in some cases attempting to build “a better mouse trap”, but few succeeded to bring any significant theoretical or practical value to the BSC framework and implementation methodology, developed continuously by Drs. Kaplan and Norton and by their team at Palladium and based on thousands of implementation projects in most industries,...

Balance of Payments

...Balance of Payments The balance of payments is the sum of all transaction that Australia has with the rest of the world. These figures are presented in two accounts- the current account and the capital and financial account. The capital and financial account are comprised of reversible transactions while the current account covers external transactions that are non- reversible. The balance of payments always balances but since the 1980s, Australia has persistently experienced a large Current Account Deficit (CAD). The balance of payments is based on a double entry system (ie credits and debits) of ledger accounts known as the current account and the capital and financial account.

An account showing the income and expenditure of a firm over a period of time. These documents are required by law in order to show people the financial strengths and weaknesses of an organisation's recent performance and current situation.

Balance of Payment

...Balance of payment of Nepal The balance of payments account is a systematic record of all the transactions of a country’s inhabitants with the rest of the world over a given period of time. All transactions must be recorded somewhere. The IMF publishes a Balance Of Payments manual to standardize all balances of payments, and it contains the rules about which transactions are allowed. A favorable balance of payments usually implies a surplus which means that more funds are flowing in than leaving. Every transaction is recorded twice, once as a credit and once as a debit. A key point to remember about the balance of payments account is that the value of all the transactions must sum to zero. The balance of payments account consists of the following components: • Current Account • Capital Account Current Account The Current Account includes all transactions which give rise to or use up national income. The current account has four components: • The balance on goods, which records exports and imports of physical, relocatable merchandise. The export of betel nut, for example, brings in a credit, while the import of cars creates a debit. • The balance on services, which records transactions relating to the provision of non-physical items such as transport, travel and insurance. • The balance on investment income, which records dividends and interest payments that Nepalese earn on assets held overseas, and also payments to foreign residents on assets held in Nepal. •...

Balance of Trade

...Balance of Trade shows the difference between the total amount of incoming and outgoing currencies through import and export. Balance of Payment (BOP) is a summary of economic activities between the residents of country and the rest of the world during a given period, usually one year. The main purpose of keeping these records is to inform government authorities about the overall international economic position of the country in order to assist them in arriving at decisions on monetary and fiscal policy, on the one hand, and trade and payments policy on the other. Balance of payments statistics are therefore helpful to government authorities charged with maintaining macroeconomic stability.BOT is a part of BOP, but it is significant for the economy because import and export is one of the most important economic activities of a nation. Moreover the balance of trade shows whether the external sector of a particular country is doing well or not. Along with BOT,BOP depicts the overall economic balance of a nation and the health of foreign reserve of that nation. So I agree that in the context of Bangladesh balance of trade is an external sector indicator than balance of payments. A common misconception is that balance of trade deficits are always bad for the economy. This is not necessarily true. In the short term if a country is importing a high volume of goods and services this acts as a short-term boost to living standards since it allows consumers to buy a higher level of......

Good total. However, situations do occur (e.g., a forced liquidation or distressed sale due to the death of the company founder), in which the purchase price is less than the value of the identifiable net assets. 13. Goodwill is recorded only when it is acquired by purchase. Goodwill acquired in a business combination is considered to have an indefinite life and therefore should not be amortized, but should be tested for impairment on at least an annual basis. 14. Many analysts believe that the value of goodwill is so subjective that it should not be given the same status as other types of assets such as cash, receivables, inventory, etc. The analysts are simply stating that they believe that presentation of goodwill on the balance sheet does not provide any useful information to the users of financial statements. Whether this is true or not is a difficult point to prove, but it should be noted that it appears contradictory to pay for the goodwill and then immediately write it off, denying that it has any value. 15. Accounting standards require that if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such assets may not be recoverable, then the carrying amount of the asset should be assessed. The assessment or review takes the form of a recoverability test that compares the sum of the expected future cash flows from the asset (undiscounted) to the carrying amount. If the cash flows are less than the carrying amount, the asset has......

Balance Sheet

...rP os t 9-101-108 REV: MARCH 5, 2007 DAVID F. HAWKINS The Balance Sheet op yo A balance sheet, otherwise referred to as the Statement of Financial Position, presents information related to a company’s financial condition as of a specific point in time based on generally accepted accounting principles. These data are classified in three categories—assets, liabilities, and owners’ equity. The basic balance sheet is: Assets = Liabilities + Owners’ Equity or Resources = Creditors’ and Owners’ Claims on Resources tC Assets are probable, measurable, future economic benefits (things of value that the company owns or controls) to which the business holds the rights, which have been acquired through a current, or past, transaction. These are the resources of the firm. Liabilities are probable, measurable, future economic sacrifices arising from a company’s obligations to convey assets or perform services to a person or other organization outside of the company at some time in the future. These are the creditors’ claims on the resources of the firm. No Owners’ equity is the residual balance remaining after total liabilities are deducted from total assets. It represents the stockholders’ claims on the resources of the business. Do Assets and liabilities are presented in two categories: current and noncurrent. Current assets are cash and cash equivalents and those assets that are expected to be liquidated (turned into cash)......

Balance Sheet

...After reviewing the P&L Sheet, the Balance Sheet and the Cash Flow documents for News Generation for the 2005 year, I noticed some things that may be a red flag for any business to address. These items include some questionable spending amounts in certain areas of the business. There was also the wrong Net Income amount transferred over to the Balance Sheet. On the P&L I noticed several cost to the business that seems to be very expensive. For instance, on the Cost of Goods there is the Teleconferencing charge of $15,322.49, which seems very expensive to me. I would hope that News Generation could search around and find a better deal on teleconferencing which would have a positive effect on the Bottom Line. Another concern would be the charge of $23,321.00 for Health Insurance. Maybe this price could be reduced if there is a different medical benefits plan available for the business. There is also the concern of the $5,711.65 charge for marketing materials when they are already spending a total amount of $20,276.87 in the marketing area of the P&L alone. I would think that, that amount would cover the marketing materials as well. The biggest thing that I saw that seemed to be one of the biggest expenses for the business was the amount of $44,864.46 for office space. I’m curious as to why it’s costing that much for office space. Is it because they have too much space and they could defiantly down size to save money. Or is it because of the location or something of that......

Balance Is Key

...Balance is the key to living a happy and satisfied life. Too much focus on work can leave a person feeling empty and shallow but putting all your focus on your family and friends can leave the pocketbook empty and shallow too. Throw in a full time academic career and you have the makings for a real disaster. How do we find a good balance in order to have the happy and satisfied life that we desire? There is a quote I heard once that says “No one can do everything, but everyone can do something”. I have always remembered that, I believe it was on television around the time hurricane Katrina hit. Although it was referring to volunteering but I think it applies to life too. Maybe we can’t do it all on our own, after all God didn’t put Adam here alone, he gave him a companion, Eve, and they worked together to raise a family and work and learn. I would like to start off by discussing our work life. Although a person might want to climb high on the corporate ladder, one should not neglect the other important aspects of his life. Do you often find yourself missing out on sleep, not exercising, eating unhealthily, drinking or smoking too much, or otherwise neglecting your body for the sake of work? Do your friends and family members complain about you spending too much time at work? If you are nodding along to some of these, you might be a workaholic. If you focus all of your effort on your work you may not only be missing out on your children’s growth and life......

Balance of Payment

...Examine India’s balance of payments in the last two decades. What have been the trends in terms of merchandise trade, invisibles and capital flows? The balance of payments (BOP) is the method countries use to monitor all international monetary transactions at a specific period of time. Usually, the BOP is calculated every quarter and every calendar year. All trades conducted by both the private and public sectors are accounted for in the BOP in order to determine how much money is going in and out of a country. If a country has received money, this is known as a credit, and, if a country has paid or given money, the transaction is counted as a debit. Theoretically, the BOP should be zero, meaning that assets (credits) and liabilities (debits) should balance. But in practice this is rarely the case and, thus, the BOP can tell the observer if a country has a deficit or a surplus and from which part of the economy the discrepancies are stemming. DIVISION OF BALANCE OF PAYMENTS The BOP is divided into three main categories: the current account, the capital account and the financial account. Within these three categories are sub-divisions, each of which accounts for a different type of international monetary transaction.  The Current Account The current account is used to mark the inflow and outflow of goods and services into a country. Earnings on investments, both public and private, are also put into the current account.  Within the current account are credits......

The balance-of-payments accounts of a country record the payments and receipts of the residents of the country in their transactions with residents of other countries. If all transactions are included, the payments and receipts of each country are, and must be, equal. Any apparent inequality simply leaves one country acquiring assets in the others. For example, if INDIANS buy automobiles from Japan, and have no other transactions with Japan, the Japanese must end up holding RUPEES, which they may hold in the form of bank deposits in INDIA or in some other INDIAN investment. The payments Indians make to Japan for automobiles are balanced by the payments Japanese make to Indians. individuals and institutions, including banks, for the acquisition of Rupee assets. Put another way, Japan sold India automobiles, and INDIA sold Japan rupees or Rupee-denominated assets such as treasury bills . Although the totals of payments and receipts are necessarily equal, there will be inequalities—excesses......
