Feb - 11 2016 | no comments | By


Commitments, Responsibilities, and Inactivity
A good question had been posed on The question inquired what excuse you may use for being inactive. There are some people who experienced a large change in their activity levels once they began their professional lives… and it’s not becoming more active like Michael Jackson impersonator Sergio Cortes. This may have occurred upon their graduations. Responsibilities and commitments had changed their once active lives into excuses for being inactive.

Growing and Maturing
The activity level of an individual in their mid-20s may change and slow as the grow and mature. This may simply occur as the years pass from the 20s and ease into the 30 age bracket. There are constraints may lead to some excuses for inactivity.

Physical Activity is a Privilege
Physical activity is a privilege as well as a life-long commitment. There may be a drastic occurrence that will serve as a good reminder that physical activity is indeed a sacred privilege and a commitment. Do you have an excuse for being inactive?

Compliance Officers Policed to a New Degree

Feb - 09 2016 | no comments | By

From being caught in the cross-hairs of the ever-changing corporate compliance laws; to the equally growing worry that they could actually see fines or even jail-time; Compliance Officer is a title that has those who have it wondering why they chose it. 

But alas, when all is said and done–there are those who are glad to roll with the punches. One of those such people is Helane L Morrison Chief Corporate Compliance Officer. 

Helane served as SEC Administrator for he Los Angeles Based Pacific Region. Apart from California, this includes Washington State, Oregon, Idaho, Northern Nevada, Alaska and Montana. That is surely a fair bit of responsibility. She spent part of her career as a lawyer prior to this. 

Ironically, Morrison actually represented clients that were in litigation with SEC. She also served as an arbitrator for stock brokers and for stock brokerages when suites were filed against them by the public. 

When she joined the SEC she was one of only four women in the SEC. According to Morrison the staff for enforcement and examination staff in Los Angeles had doubled and increased the work-load significantly within the space of 5 years.

To learn more about Helane’s life and career, visit her Wikipedia page or check out her Bloomberg profile here:

Where the career path is going

Lately there have been more than a few actions taken legally that have actually found compliance officers personally libel for mistakes made in their respective firms. This has banks in turmoil a well. By 2015 the amount of compliance officers that walked off their jobs doubled. This means banks find it hard to lure people to this particular profession. It’s not without its price and thankless is an understatement. 

Banks have used compliance people to help them navigate the choppy waters in the sea of new regulations. When the last financial crises that is yet to be finished first hit; these people were relied upon most heavily by the banking industry to address internal issues that resulted in some major layout in fines.

Some are lost in a quagmire of deciding who to give up when things come down. Do you give up your compliance officers that are becoming harder to replace? You can’t give up your CEO so who else is to blame. And this blame game is one that compliance officers are tired of playing. But on the positive side–the game is costing some big banks a cool 2 million in compliance salaries. For those is the anti money-laundering department $600,000.

Feb - 09 2016 | no comments | By

Yeonmi Park is a young woman who defected from North Korea after many years of suffering and struggle in search of freedom. A few months ago, she celebrated her 22nd birthday, and also released a book she published to reveal what North Korean citizens experience in their home country. In the book, Park says on NY Times she had never known the concept and meaning of the word freedom, and the most important thing to her was to have food on the table.

On March 2007, that was the day Park embarked on a journey out of North Korea in search of freedom. She was accompanied by her mother, her father was in a detention camp, while her elder sister had left a few days before them. In the dead of the night, Park crossed Yalu River and arrived in China with no idea of what would follow next. During that time, Yeonmi Park was only 13 years old, and she had just started another long journey that would lead her out of China.

During the interview that was told on, Yeonmi said that her father died without knowing there was democracy and freedom in the world. When she crossed border into China, Park lived illegally and for that reason, she was subjected to abuse, hunger to a point of thinking committing suicide. Her father joined them in China after he was released but was diagnosed with cancer and died a few months later. Many people around the world have been captivated by the Yeonmi’s story and this has propelled her into fame around the world. Although the government of North Korea has disputed her story, Park insists her story is nothing but the whole truth of real facts happening in that country.

Park was eventually rescued by missionaries who help her to travel to South Korea where she completed her education before joining human rights activists and North Korean defectors living in other parts of the world. She lives in the United States where she has been invited on several conferences to give her story about the real situation in North Korea. Info was reported on on
