环视周围，综合眼光，学识，气度，修养的人，凤毛麟角。有些有志的年轻人，为了适应环境，变得世故，狡诈。这并不是他们的错，人的价值观和立场都是会变的。就像一个朋友嘲笑言情片的女主角们哭啼道,"你为什么不爱我了呢？你曾和我 bla bla..." 。“曾”就表示是过去式。

In the whole process, pictures in my mind were all happy memories. I thought about what I want to do, what I like and yummy food. I should be happy that I have the choice of what I can imagine. I realized that it is a horrible thing of having nothing in my mind and heart. It's lucky that I have enough things to think.
Although I am still struggling in the world and I know there is a pretty tough road ahead. I have no intention of giving in and choosing something inferior.

• Reading Group Guide
New journalist Bubbles Yablonsky, hobbling around in her new $30 suit, is arrested for carrying a lethal weapon when she tries to cut open her back skirt flap in the courtroom. In their shared jail cell, Popeye, the homeless mentally ill woman on trial for murder, confides in Bubbles, who diligently writes down the interview in her notebook. Popeye claims she didn't kill the victim and that everyone, including her lawyer, is against her. She also says that she was in the restroom when the murder happened and that she heard voices. Popeye's attempt to assist the victim led directly to her arrest.Popeye's story is convincing to Bubbles. But immediately afterward, Popeye falls down and dies. Blood tests show that she took way too much of her prescription drugs. Evidently Popeye committed suicide. Or did she?Bubbles's belief that Popeye is innocent is reinforced when Popeye's attorneys threaten her to get the interview notes. Will Bubbles go back to jail for contempt? More bad news comes Bubbles's way when she hears that her lover, Steve Stiletto, went straight from her arms to New York and is now engaged!Bubbles learns that Karol Smolak, part of the Polish Mafia and known to have a major anger management issue, may be linked to Popeye's case. In addition, a certain doctor has gone missing while some eye-popping photos of the murder victim appear in Bubbles's car. Who left the photos for her? Is the doctor fleeing, kidnapped, or dead?Bubbles is stressed out. All she wants is a hot bath and a Sara Lee Devil's Food Cake (defrosted or not) and gallons of root beer. However, she soldiers on with her investigation, along with her photographer sidekick Lorena. Lorena claims a "character flaw" that necessitates anger management classes and leads her to have just a wee shoplifting tendency.Events take an ominous turn when Bubbles gets a phone call instructing her to quit her investigation if she wants her daughter, Jane, to remain out of danger. Although terrified, Bubbles continues to uncover clues. In one brief morning, she covers the "miraculous vision" sighting of Madonna (the rock star) on a Chevy Impala, is kidnapped by mobsters, and discovers that Stiletto is actually fake-engaged to Bubbles in an attempt to delay a job assignment overseas.This is a fast-paced mystery with lots of plot twists and entertaining one-liners, and enough romance to intrigue without overwhelming the story. Reading BUBBLES BETROTHED is a pure frothy pleasure, akin to going on vacation with your funniest, slightly raunchy best friend. You never quite know where she's going to lead you, but it's a wild and hilarious trip nonetheless. --- Reviewed by Terry Miller Shannon (Terryms2001@yahoo.com)

For sure, is going to be returned at the face value.
Operating performance is improving but hasn’t been transformed into the financial results.
It is not because they didn’t do the job. It turns out the mark doesn’t change.
It is larger than the comps but the exit strategy
That’s for sure.
Order three investments by preference:
It’s pretty good way to look at it.
It should be written in a simple enough language.
Why the existing customers didn't buy more at a lower price?
How do you feel after the conversation? Are the anlaysts intelligent and savvy person with a critical eye?
Can we get comfortable with their approach?
Is there a difference in the level of assurance?
Are they aware the approach used by other funds?
Are they consistent in the approach utilized?
From a implied multiple perspective for XXX,
They did it at best guess.
Do a sanity check.
Support for assumption is insufficient.
The company has negative cahs flow since inception.
Which investment is rated highest for their approach?
It is a good question. Frankly speaking, I am also curious to see their results.
They monitor the position on a monthly basis.
There are wide coverage on the comparable companies. From the analyst point of view the projections are pretty reliable.
The subject company is actually larger than the comparable companies but the exit strategy is to sell it to one of the comparable company.
Some initiative were taken and the operating performance is improving. However, it hasn't been transformed to financial results yet.
But please don't let other people know that.
The only thing I have is at 4-5 pm.
