Nothing provides a clearer picture of the financial strength (or weakness) of any business than an understanding of its cash flow strategy. Since cash is the life-blood of any business, the strength of the enterprise is directly related to the quality of its cash flow management strategies. Cash-management specialist Keith Checkley has consulted with and trained cash management specialists throughout the world. He brings the reader up to date on the important issues and essential techniques for implementing and managing an effective cash flow system. New case studies make the concepts easy to understand and apply. Cash Is Still King is divided into three parts: 1) cash flow and business management; 2) cash flow and banking relationships; and 3) cash flow and restructuring or reorganizing a business.

This eBook is designed to provide the reader with accurate analyses of the AML/CTF Financial and Legal Intelligence, law and practice in the nations of the world with the most current references and resources. The eBook is organized around five main themes: 1. Money Laundering Risk and Compliance; 2. The Law of Anti-Money Laundering and Compliance; 3. Criminal and Civil Forfeiture; 4. Compliance and 5. International Cooperation. Each chapter is made up of five parts. Part I, "Introduction," begins with the analysis of money laundering risks and compliance with the recommendations of the Financial Action Task Force (FATF), and then concludes with the country's rating based on the International Narcotics Control Strategy Report (INCSR) of the U.S. State Department. Part II, "Anti-Money Laundering and Combating Terrorist Financing (AML/CTF)" and Part III, "Criminal and Civil Forfeiture," evaluate the judicial and legislative structures of the country. Given the increasing global dimension of AML/CTF activities, these sections give special attention to how a country has created statutes, decisions, policies and the judicial enforcement procedures needed to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. Part IV, "Compliance," examines the most critical processes for the prevention and detection of money laundering and terrorist financing. This section reflects on the practical elements that should be in place so that financial institutions can comply with AML/CTF requirements; these are categorized into the development and implementation of internal controls, policies and procedures. Part V, "International Cooperation," reviews the compilation of international laws and treaties between countries working together to combat money laundering and terrorist financing. As these unlawful activities can occur in any given country, it is important to identify the international participants who are cooperating to develop methods to obstruct these criminal activities.

Finster, mysteriös, elektrisierend Revival erzählt die Geschichte des Jungen Jamie und des Predigers Charles Jacobs, deren Wege sich von den Sechzigern bis heute auf unglückselige Weise immer wieder kreuzen. Sie steuert auf ein beängstigendes, auswegloses Ende zu, wie es selbst Stephen King bislang nicht zu Papier gebracht hat, und ist gleichzeitig Abrechnung mit dem Religionsfanatismus in unserem hoch technisierten Zeitalter und Verbeugung vor den Größen des klassischen Horrors. Der kleine Jamie spielt vor dem Haus mit seinen Plastiksoldaten, da schiebt sich ein dunkler Schatten über ihn, ein Schatten, den er sein Leben lang nicht loswerden wird. Er blickt auf und sieht Charles Jacobs über sich, den jungen Methodistenprediger, der in der neuenglischen Gemeinde gerade sein Amt antritt. Im Nu gewinnt der charismatische Jacobs die Herzen der gottesfürchtigen Einwohner. Den Kindern haben es vor allem die elektrischen Spielereien angetan, mit denen er Bibelgeschichten veranschaulicht. Das alles endet, als ihn ein entsetzlicher Unfall vom Glauben abfallen lässt und er eine letzte Predigt hält, die in einer rasenden Gottverfluchung gipfelt. Von der Gemeinde verstoßen, tingelt er fortan über die Jahrmärkte, wo er elektrische Experimente vorführt, die zunehmend spektakulärer werden. Und immer schrecklichere Folgen nach sich ziehen. Über die Jahre trifft Jamie, inzwischen drogenabhängiger Musiker, wiederholt auf Jacobs, der ihn jedes Mal tiefer in seine dämonische Welt zieht. Als Jamie sich dessen klar wird, gibt es kein Zurück mehr. Das finale Experiment steht bevor.

Er stieg hoch, fiel tief und stand wieder auf, um zu einem weiteren Höhenflug anzusetzen: Johnny Cash, 1932-2003, war und ist eine Ikone, weit über die Countrymusikszene, in der er sich bewegte, hinaus. Legendär waren seine Konzerte in den Gefängnissen Folsom und San Quentin Ende der 60er-Jahre. Besonders aber mit seinen letzten vier Alben, den "American Recordings", fand er weltweit große Anerkennung. Cash, der den Beinamen "Man in Black" trug, hat in seiner Karriere etwa 500 Songs geschrieben, mehr als 53 Millionen Tonträger verkauft und wurde mit 13 Grammy Awards ausgezeichnet. Spätestens seit dem Kinofilm "Walk the Line" von 2006 ist er im allgemeinen Bewusstsein als Musik-Ikone verankert.
