Workshop for hopes
30 Jun 2009
This workshop is really helpful to those people who are unemployed and recently get lay-off. They will surely give some guidance and moral support these people. I hope it will work and continuously do this workshop since the objectives are great and encouraging. Well, I have good news, Today, the awaited Bernie Madoff sentencing has been handed down, and for running the largest Ponzi scheme in history, the culprit has been given 150 years, effectively a life sentence. Some have already pled for the release of Madoff, as his crime is revealed, and there won't be unsecured loans to repay his victims or reestablish any credibility for him at this point. (See more at: ) The judge decided that the prosecution was correct in asking for the maximum sentence, and gave him 150 years in the clink. Well, this means justice to all the people he victimized and because of his devious acts many were affected in term in moral and financial aspects.
