The prescriptive follow-up to the New York Times bestseller The Dream Manager. One of the major issues in our lives today is work-life balance. Everyone wants it; no one has it. But Matthew Kelly believes that work- life balance was a mistake from the start. Because we don't really want balance. We want satisfaction. Kelly lays out the system he uses with his clients, his team, and himself to find deep, long-term satisfaction both personally and professionally. He introduces us to the three philosophies of our age that are dragging us down. He shows us how to cultivate the energy that will give us enough battery power for everything we need and want to do. And finally, in five clear steps, he shows us how to use his Personal & Professional Satisfaction System to establish and honor our biggest priorities, even if we spend a lot more time on some of the lesser ones.

Roy Chadwick has been a writer and analyst of aspects of society for most of his working life. He has edited internal marketing publications and written newsletters and books, for among others, industrial and commercial energy buyers and landlords. He has run a multiracial youth club in Paddington and a community centre on a Labour housing estate in a Conservative constituency. He has travelled extensively in the USA, the Caribbean, North Africa and Asia. He has volunteered for the CAB and worked on behalf of asylum seekers and other disadvantaged people in Salford. He has tried to keep vocal jazz alive as an unsuccessful promoter. He has coauthored a childrenÕs book on the history of tunnels with a civil engineer. He is a Sociology B.Sc. from LSE. In the 1970s and 1980s he was involved in the creation and consolidation of the financial services sector, a scenario that helped him understand better than most, the process of energy and utility privatisation in the 1990s and the relationship between markets and government. In 2006, following his divorce and with his children safely grown up, he sold his house in Salford to bring his dream, of owning a restaurant specialising in vocal jazz, to reality. He chose Blackpool where he could afford property, a town buzzing with the prospect of renewal through a supercasino, a town with a long season and a shortage of entertainment venues and interesting restaurants. Then there were problems with building and finance and the dream died before the premises could open. Blackpool lost its bid and supercasinos disappeared from the political agenda without explanation. Property values collapsed and Roy was bankrupted.Ê Off Balance is his first completed novel. It draws on his understanding of the dangers of the private provision of public services, and his research into the history and influence of Las Vegas to present a frightening picture of what might have happened behind the scenes when Blackpool bid for its supercasino.Ê

The objective of "Off-Balance Sheet Activities" is to gain insights into, and propose meaningful solutions to, those issues raised by the current proliferation of off-balance sheet transactions. The book has its origins in a New York University conference that focused on this topic. Jointly undertaken by the Vincent C. Ross Institute of Accounting Research and New York University's Salomon Center for the study of Financial Institutions at the Stern School of Business, the conference brought together academic researchers and practitioners in the field of accounting and finance to address the issues with the broad-mindedness requisite of a group whose approaches to solutions are as different from each other as their respectively theoretical and applied approaches to the disciplines of finance and accounting. The essays are divided into two sections. The first covers issues surrounding OBS activities and banking and begins with a brief introduction that places the essays into context. OBS activities and the underinvestment problem, whether loan sales are really OBS, and money demand and OBS liquidity are examined in detail. Section two, which also begins with a brief introduction, focuses on issues of securitized assets and financing. A report on recognition and measurement issues in accounting for securitized assets is followed by three separate discussion essays. Other subjects covered include contract theoretic analysis of OBS financing, the use of OBS financing to circumvent financial covenant restrictions, and debt contracting and financial contracting. The latter two contributions are also followed by discussion essays. This unique collection of papers will prove to be an interesting and valuable tool for accounting and finance professionals as well as for academics involved in these fields. It will also be an important addition to public, college, and university libraries.

In this searing and riveting New York Times bestseller, Olympic gold medalist Dominique Moceanu reveals the dark underbelly of Olympic gymnastics, the true price of success…and the shocking secret about her past and her family that she only learned years later. At fourteen years old, Dominique Moceanu was the youngest member of the 1996 US Women’s Olympic Gymnastics team, the first and only American women’s team to take gold at the Olympics. Her pixyish appearance and ferocious competitive drive quickly earned her the status of media darling. But behind the fame, the flawless floor routines, and the million-dollar smile, her life was a series of challenges and hardships. Off Balance vividly delineates each of the dominating characters who contributed to Moceanu’s rise to the top, from her stubborn father and long-suffering mother to her mercurial coach, Bela Karolyi. Here, Moceanu finally shares the haunting stories of competition, her years of hiding injuries and pain out of fear of retribution from her coaches, and how she hit rock bottom after a public battle with her parents. But medals, murder plots, drugs, and daring escapes aside (all of which figure into Moceanu’s incredible journey), the most unique aspect of her life is the family secret that Moceanu discovers, opening a new and unexpected chapter in her adult life. A mysterious letter from a stranger reveals that she has a second sister—born with a physical disability and given away at birth—who has nonetheless followed in Moceanu’s footsteps in an astonishing way. A multilayered memoir that transcends the world of sports, Off Balance will touch anyone who has ever dared to dream of a better life.

Measuring Off Balance Sheet Leverage

The simultaneous unwinding of leveraged positions can trigger financial market turbulence. Although balance-sheet measures of leverage are available, it is useful to construct a measure of leverage that incorporates both on- and off-balance-sheet activities. This paper provides measures of leverage implicit in derivative contracts by decomposing the contracts into cash market equivalent components. A leverage ratio can then be calculated for this replicating portfolio, which consists of own funds (equity) and borrowed funds equivalents (debt). Methods for aggregating leverage by institution and by markets are presented. The interaction between leverage and risk is discussed, and a modified capital adequacy ratio is calculated, which captures off-balance-sheet exposure.

In recent years the capital markets have developed into ever more complex areas, and banks have competed with each other to develop more sophisticated and innovative methods of financing. The pace of this innovation has often outstripped the development of rules for financial reporting. Off balance sheet finance is one particular area where the standard-setters are only now catching up. The Accounting Standards Board recently published a further exposure draft on the subject. FRED 4 - Reporting the substance of transactions - and Part 1 discusses in detail how it will affect the accounting treatment of various forms of off balance sheet finance. The exposure draft is reproduced in full in Part 2. Off Balance Sheet Finance will be an indispensable guide for bankers, other financiers, accountants and lawyers.

Most people depend upon their doctors and pharmacists for all their healthcare needs. Yet doctors are only trained in drugs and surgery. And complete healthcare consists of body, mind, spirit, thoughts, and emotions. Off Balance, The American Way of Health shows how not only drugs don't work, but also has interviews with several individuals who have healed themselves from various so-called "incurable" health conditions that their doctors could not treat. After reading the book, readers will understand the limitations of their doctors and drugs, and be empowered to search for natural and holistic health care practitioners when treating their own health conditions.
