Hi! Readers,
Lilian Jackson Braun Bettinger, 97, who is no stranger in the publishing industry has died at the age of 97. This is another typical author who had surpassed 90 years. Append below is a brief history of her past significant contribution to this industry.
The best-selling author of The Cat Who mystery novels about a journalist named Jim Qwilleran who solves crimes with the help from his cats Koko and Yum Yum ( Saimese), died June 4, 2011 at a hospice in Landrum, South Carolina. She had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The author and former Detroit Free Press feature writer had lived there for the past 23 years.
Braun's first book The Cat Who Could Read Backwards was published in 1966, which led the New York Times to call her "the new detective writer of the year. The familiar setting for most of the tales took place in a fictional town of Pickax, in Moose County — a town modeled after Bad Axe, Mich., where Braun and her husband lived until the mid-1980s.
Braun published the first three novels of the series in the mid-1960s while working at the Detroit Free Press: “The Cat Who Could Read Backwards,” “The Cat Who Ate Danish Modern” and “The Cat Who Turned On and Off” all received critical acclaim. The budding mystery writer then disappeared from the publishing scene for nearly 20 years.
Earl Bettinger, her husband recalled that the books’ publishers at that time wanted her to introduce sex and violence into her stories, which she wouldn’t agree to. However, she began working at the Free Press in about 1950 as the newspaper’s Good Living editor. She wrote about interior design, art and architecture, and reviewed kitchen gadgets and other new household products until she retired in 1978. Her creativity and determination enable her to succeed in her stand of no compromising her initial beliefs.
Subsequently with the encouragement of her husband, she resumed writing “The Cat Who . . .” series several years later. One critically important point need to take note is that all of her books were written in longhand before she turned them over to a typist. This pain taking process did not deter this aspiring author to end there, but she continued to shine. In addition to “The Cat Who . . .” series, Braun wrote two other books that were collections of short stories. 
Now, you can see vividly that her determination overwhelm all her odds and deliver all the novels available today. Her spirit in shaping the landscape of the publishing industry will never be forgotten, but in memoris forever. Let her spirit rest in peace with God. In this conjuction, may I request that we observe one minute of silence to show due respect and honour she truly deserved. Thank you in advance.
Braun was born June 20, 1913, in Chicopee Falls, Mass. Her first husband, Louis Paul Braun, died in 1969 and left behind her second husband, of Tryon, N.C.
Thanks for your precious time reading this article and look forward to hearing from you.

Very happy day to you,

Technology makes life much better, if we use it appropriately. It makes sending Ecard just at a click of your finger. How you usually response if you receive Ecard from someone from far distance? Tell us your immediate reaction. As you know, I always love to hear from you.

My immediate response is to see who send me the greeting/card. Then, I will read its message. I will find its meaning and remember and apply it in my life so that I can understand what it is truly means. Here, you may see how Confucius have a great impact in my life. One of his famous sayings, I see I forget, I read I remember, I do I understand. Thereafter I always put it into practice. To me, it will then add value so that I can truly benefit from it.

Some of you may wonder why I keep on trying all the above. This is because lately I received the above meaningful and lovely Ecard, from one of my social network buddy friends who is from a distant land. I must say that I love this card very much and replied him with a Big thanks. It serves as a healthy reminder to me and it is also part of my habit to constantly take time to reflect. To me, reviewing is an healthy exercise for me to plan forward. If not, how can I learn although some of you may have different ways of learning. Hope you can open up and share with us here by putting forward your feedback on the comments provided below.

Besides thanking him, I also promised him a short reply. After giving it a deep thought, it gives me an idea to write a post. Below I will try to share with you why I do so, that's how I make constructive assessment, how I plan to take it further and what changes I need to make, what strategy I need to use and how to make use of the available resources to optimise my yield. Caution must be taken so that you don't let the past hold you back and let yourself sink in the bitterness. Here, I also love to learn how you make good use of it. Thank you.

As you know, I used to share some of my experienece which may help someone, who like me live in the darkest moments, but was saved from the books I read and the people I associated with. And now, I think it is appropriate for me to the same, as a way to return back those benefits I have been receiving all this while.

One important point I need to stress here is that I find this technique extremely useful and wanted you to see its relevance in our lives. I must admit that I benefited a lot from it and it has helped me achieve what I am today.

-why I say so

Some of you may wonder why I say so. Those who know my background will know that I was living in a life full of scarcity. This environment has helped to mould me to seek better ways and means to improve it further. As such, I view this process of time to reflect extremely important to me and I have been benefiting from it so much. That's the reason I am still occasionally occupied with it until today. As my life goes on, I discovered that I have so many interests and dreams to accomplish. I never wanted to let go of any of them and decided to take it one at a time. One thing I noted that I am very blessed with and always have the energy to sustain and maintain my strong desire to excel in the field I am involved. This is the way that has helped me to be more observant and lead me to discover additional technique from time to time that is required to build the edge I need to make more meaningful things happened in my life. Thank God for making me enjoy the walk of my journey to take up the new challenges.

- that's how I make constructive assessment (Benchmarking)

And I also realized that success is a journey and I need to do an assessment of my achievement constantly. This is to ensure that the monitoring of my progress and ensure that it is on the right track and progress toward my desired end. As far as I am concern, I am more inclined to be achievement base. I tend to compare what I can do now compared to myself previously in all aspects, be it financial, skill, expertise and spiritual resources. I hate to compare myself to others, which I feel is an insult to myself if I were to do so. This healthy comparison save me time and prevents me from indulging into other unhealthy activities.

- how I plan to take it further

From the feedback of my above assessment, I will then plan out my next course of action. This process will continue until I achieved my desired result before I take up my other dream and interest. Please share with me how you cope up with your challenges and I love to learn from you too. From time to time, I will continue to make such an assessment, when I deem fit. At times, I even make some changes, if appropriate when it fits well to that situation. Here, I can say that I have a plan, which allows some flexibility.

- what strategy I need to use

At times, I am not only make some changes, but I also change my existing strategy, when I deem it appropriate. One crucial point I need to caution you is that no strategy will be obsolete, but the question is whether it applies at the right timing or not. If you don't agree, please do voice out your rationales. A good strategy is when it bears fruit and it is so much better when you apply it at the right time and circumstances. To gauge the right timing, you need the appropriate resources to do so and not based on luck. In this connection, I hope you do know what I mean here. Please forward your question if you have any query.

- how to make full use of the available resources to optimise my yield.

And last, but not least I will then think of accelerating its process to obtain its maximum benefit. From my past experience, I noticed that in order for me to do so, I need to leverage on others. In short, you can see the contrasting differences between a pipe builder and a bucket carrier. In this context, I would like to say I normally use the strength of others to compliment my weakness so as to achieve more for all of us that involved in that process ( mutual benefits). In this aspect, there are four main areas that we can focus into, namely resources in term of time and energy, ideas, contacts, and expertise. No one will have all and never forget that each of us is unique in its own way. You have your talents, skills, expertise where no other people will be exactly the same as you. Every one of us can excel in our own fields according to our original design that we need to know of. Believe me or not - if we pool all our resources, the success rate is definitely very high and can be assured if we don't give up. The more we will get and this is the original design the Creator has invented for us in the first place. There is a saying nothing is impossible if we work together.

I share with you, with the intention to deliver my message, TO INSPIRE AND GET INSPIRED, so as to fan up our desire or inner energy for me to accomplish more, so as to lift all of us up. As our commitment to you is to reward you and to make a better life you need to put all these into practice. Never give up and try to condition yourself by continuously staying tuned, even if you have made it. I do encourage you to do so, so as to fan up your inner flame to be a difference maker and continuously have an extra edge to make a better world for everyone to stay.

I do understand that there are so many routes to success. In this connection, I would always love to hear your success story and please email me if you have such an inspiring story. Thank you.

Here, I wanted to let you know that I never regret for putting up several blogs to share what I have learnt from those who sacrificed to save us. As you know, to keep it for myself is definitely not my style and I dare to share it openly, mainly attributed to so many great persons who have some how made significant impacts on my life, which I thank them greatly for. Otherwise, I can't imagine how my life will be ended with.

Again, I must admit that through sharing of all my experiences, it does flame up my inner desire to inspire others so as to inspire myself at the same time. As I recalled, I have been sharing online and offline constantly to highlight those who have scarified to keep us safe not only to reflect my appreciation to them, but also serve as a model for me to do so, in a way that their efforts are not in vain. To show our care, we should also give our support to them in whatsoever way we could by spreading the good works of them. By doing so, we could give some of us inspiration, hope and courage to make ourselves better, stronger, healthier, bigger, softer and stay alive so as to prepare ourselves for a greater challenge in life.

Thanks for your precious time to read this article and hope to seeing you again and again.


A very warm welcome to you here.

It is of great pleasure for me to share this book, ROAD TO BEAUTIFUL : A JOURNEY OF HOPE DETAILING HIS JOURNEY OF BATTLING THE DISEASE, if somehow you have missed the news.

This book chronicles a man, none other than Gerard Khaw's battle with cancer. He, a Penangite, survived the ordeal and journalised his journey into this book. He still survives till today despite he was told by doctors five years ago that he only had 10% chance of surviving nose cancer. Subsequently, doctors removed 60% of his liver that had tumours, after the cancer cells spread to his liver there years later.

It was amazingly awesome for him to pursue an off-campus Masters in Business Administration programme from the University of South Australia in 2009 and completed it in March this year while going through cancer treatment. Here, I am very certain that you too like to find out his secret of success.

The author, in his 40s, confessed that he managed to act against all the odds through the grace of God. He too admitted that he received full support from his wife Gloria, his two children Isabelle, 10, Jeanelle, 9, and friends during the launch of his book at Canton Square on last Sunday.

In this connection, I also like to reattest my testimony to glorify God that His grace is sufficient for us to overcome any and every barrier we encountered in our lives so long as we have faith and not to lose hope, as reaffirmed by the above author. This undeniable truth is not anything new and it has been affirmed by the past, current and future witnesses and is well reaffirmed in the Scriptures.

Another good news is that the above book priced at RM 30 will soon be made available in major bookstores nationwide. As such, it is a very well rewarding book to read, very much more than its cost.

For those who have read this book, you are more than welcome to voice out your feedback so as to inspire others as well. Great thanks to you. Please do not stop here, but do spread this good news to your circle of friends so as to inspire others as well to show your care and love.

Have a blessed day everyday,

James Oh

Hi! Everyone,

Another landmark record was created by Miss Li Na. She is the first, both Asian and Chinese woman tennis champion, who won a grand slam single title at the French Open last Sunday, June 5, 2011. Her spirit really fuels hope to many Asian, especially those sportsmen and sportswomen who decided to pursue this sport as their careers. Her recent victory flooded the Chinese media last Sunday.

This great news in a way has proven the criticism that Asian body feature is not designed for tennis is totally unacceptable and unfounded. At the same time, it also proves a point that what is intangible is more important than tangible. Her confidence and powerful mindset put her in the best to beat her tough companion, the defending champion Francesca Schiavone of Italy 6-4, 7-6 (7/0) in the French Open final to win her first Grand slam Title. With this, she not only opens new door for Asians to this sport and also fuels hope to lots of inspiring Asian players, who intend to venture into new ventures to seek their fortunes.

Having said the above, she also illustrates a point well that God does not play favour but gives an equal opportunity to everyone so long she believe in it. Although, it was an uphill task for her to defeat her component, it did not mean that it was impossible for her to do so. I would say that it was because of her "I'm possible" spirit made her to win this game. Thus, her victory at the French Open will raise her value as a spokeswoman for brands which are trying to reach China’s new consumers.

Li, currently ranked Top 4 in the WTA women’s standings, up from No. 7 before her three-set victory last Saturday in Paris. BIG congratulation to this cheerful sports woman. It was reported in February this year, she joined tennis stars Roger Federer and Ana Ivanovic on the endorsement roster for luxury watch brand Rolex in a deal of undisclosed value and also signed a multi-year deal with Haagen Daaz ice cream reported to be valued at up to $1 million a year. This has put the rewards to the sportswomen on par, if not better than celebrities.

Rolex put up a congratulatory advertisement for her victory almost instantly after her victory last Saturday on the front page of its web site featuring Li's picture in action next to the specs for its diamond- and sapphire-encrusted steel and white gold Datejust watch.

Most Chinese news web sites, newspapers and television and radio stations featured in bold type and at the top of their broadcasts the history-making victory by the self-deprecating 29-year-old former badminton player who once gave up tennis for two years to study journalism in the following early morning of her victory. She truly made her country and people feel proud of her achievement.

The official Xinhua News Agency declared “Li Na wins first-ever grand slam tennis singles title for China and Asia,” on its web site above a story about an attempted assassination of the president of China’s close ally Pakistan.

As usual, Li now is not exempted from taking a ride on her victory to more commercial endorsements which are trying to reach China’s increasingly confident and brand conscious consumers. This group estimated of about 200 million whose richest members comprise the world’s fastest growing market for luxury brands.

Li, who has begun playing tennis at age 9 and ranked No. 35 on the Forbes list of Chinese celebrities after her defeat in Australia. She has not wasted her effort and improved herself tremendously. With this victory, she has definitely put herself in a ranking which now also surely will be much better of. Well done, Li Na and keep the flame on.

And last, but not least, we hope you too find the above story not only inspiring, but also drive you to move forward to your destination.

Before you leave, please click at the title of the post to watch the video of her action in the above match that put her shines.

Thank you for your precious time and as usual we will look forward to hearing from you,

It is a great pleasure to have ALEJA BENNETT today. A very warm welcome, ALEJA and thanks ALEJA for giving us the chance to get to know you more and also for allowing us a glimpse of the world that you have created inside your writing. Thank you very much. Let her walk through her profile and book, as appended below, before we kick off the Q + A session.


Aleja Bennett was adopted in the early seventies after being abandoned and left in an apartment alone with her older siblings. The Author was only six months old and suffered with pnuemonia shortly after that.

Aleja Bennett was adopted at the age of two years by a woman who was barren. The couple abused, starved, tortured, rejected and neglected Aleja until they threw her to the cold streets at the age of nineteen.

Aleja would not have an abortion as her adopted parent's suggested so she was tossed out to the lonely cold dark streets with no money, clothes, coat or food.

She gave birth to Jessica June 30th 1992 and married in 1994 to a drug addict who stole and robbed her soul just as her adopted parents did. She looked for love in all the wrong places while alcohol absorbed all of the pain she kept a secret.

Aleja did seek help from the grandmother Of Jessica and she then manipulated and kept Jessica away from her mother after all Aleja had was her children.

The other two children are with a drug addict Aunt which is the ex husbands sister. Aleja has one in her life and Jessica has two books while her mother Aleja Bennett has eight in total.

They both write to share their pain, strength, struggle and hope to the nation.

ALEJA BENNETT the author of the books below.


1 All I Can Do Is Stand

2 All I Can Do Is Stand Part Two

3. Passions Desires Of Aleja The Poet

4 Seasons With And Without Love

5 Poems From The Heart Mind Body And Soul

6 Thoughts Deeply Rooted Within Me

Q & A portion:

James: Perhaps you may share with us your feeling when you first meet up your daughter at your first reunion.

Aleja : I was very excited, happy and over joyed and had already cried on the long bus ride to her college in Wisconsin.

James: When did you begin to write?

Aleja : At the age of 25 while walking into my first A.A. meeting they gave me a key chain and it printed the words being alive which was my very first poem written

James : What make you to think of publishing a book to share with others ? So far what is your worst criticism/ attacks and how you overcome it.

Aleja: Over coming and surviving being an unwanted adopted child. Having the courage to remain standing through all the turmoil living with this strange family. No criticism attacks yet so I guess that is a plus for me.

James: Where do you get the courage to do so?

Aleja: Only God because the flesh is so weak and wanted to give up so many times but he kept whispering Aleja I love you and you will rise above this abuse and help others with your writing and singing.

James: Can you enlighten us a little more about your books?

Aleja: I have eight books in total and they are a variety of poetry, love, strength, self help, spirituality, romance, passion, struggle, triumph, courage, bravery, empowerment, recovery and all that life may throw our way. I have written books that go in to my abuse and how I have survived it. It took a strong will to live, forgive, love and be loved.

James: Is there anything else you would like your readers to pay special attention in regards to your book, which you have not mentioned above?

Aleja: My books are suitable for all ages except some of the love poems that would be more appropriate for older adults, couples and married partners. I write to heal a hurting nation from all the chaos that goes on from childhood. A child is suppose to be taken care of but often they are abused and take off living a life that can be harmful to them. My books can put a stop to the hopeless, powerless, addict, alcoholic and the depressed.

James: When do you plan to publish your book 2.

Aleja: All 8 books are published

James : How many volume of books for the above series, if applicable ?

Aleja: 2 series for All I Can Do Is Stand and the other six are inspirational poems

James: Tell us your guided principle that governs your life? How you cultivate these values?

Aleja: God governs my life because without him there would be no Aleja, love, forgiveness and healing also governs my life. I cultivate them in my books, groups, singing and also to my daughter

James: Any other advice which you like to share with our readers ?

Aleja: June 24th 5:30-6pm I will be on blog talk radio show and I love to interact with people even though I'm busy at times. I have groups on Face Book and a fan page soon a toll free number to reach out and talk to me live. God bless you all, I love you and God does too.

Thank again Aleja Bennett for joining us today. Let us wish her a Success.

Hi! Reader,
I am so excited to share this good news with you. This news is that China is not a threat is great news, especially to those who chose to believe that China will become a military threat subsequent to its robust economic growth for the past decades. I believe that It is highly unlikely for China to be a threat as its military strength is 20 years behind that of the United States. Although its military is developing new capabilities, it is not a threat in Asia, as reassured by the China's defense minister General Liang Guanglie  at an Asian Security conference in Sinagpore recently.
This news should be received with happiness as we know that China, in the past, had not taken any aggressive approach against any country, which has been well recorded in the world history. Here, we can't deny that the past is  a good reference, but it is not a guarantee.
Secondly, we should take it  as a solemn pledge by the Chinese government to the intenational community as advocated by its defense minister. This reassurance is timely and the sincerity of the nation showed their care and responsibities. This is crucially important to cool things down especially after the recent tensions which arised from various serious disputes amongst the 2 Koreans countries that killed 46 South Korean sailors. Nuclear disarmment talks that involve the two Koreans, Japan, China, Russia and the United States had begun.
With this, we hope that it will relieve us to a certain extent from the worry that the chaos created in the Middle East will spread to Asia, which is still enjoying good economic growth. You can see vividly by now that this healthy economical growth need to be maintained so as to spur more benefits to the peace efforts especially for the US and Europe which need to turn around from their sick economy in the near future. Now, it is critically important that we focus all our energy and time toward building the economic growth towards this direction, rather than destroying it.
As such, we should view this military-to-military relationship between China and US as "on a positive trajectory" after a series of setbacks in the recent years, as generally reported. Hence, we have no reason not to be very optimistic about the future of these healthy bilateral and military relations. In this connection, we should welcome the collabration between these two great nations, as a good tie up to spur growth in all aspects with the combination of their wealth Comprising  Advanced Technology, Super Military Facilities  and Wealth so as to take the world towards new era of prosperity and to build a better world.
To enhance its fruition toward this ends, we need to caution readers not to indulge and believe the cyber lies which intend to create chaos spread  by certain irresponsible persons with a  hidden agenda. We want to preserve the peace we truly deserved. This is one  of the reasons why we, at lift you up, intend to cover more diverse news so as to keep our readers in a right positive track so that we can use our efforts and time in a good use for a betterment of all of us ultimately.
Thanks for your precious time for reading this healthy news, which will assure you to gain more positive energy and better youselves  in mind. Do share with us your feedback and thanks you in advance for sharing.

Very happy day to you,

Today, I am going to introduce an unique author who live is rich in experience, which made him lacks nothing. It is an honor for me to brief you on some of his unique experiences, which include growing up with a schizophrenic mother, having six brothers and sisters (of which he is the middle-younger child), a perfectionist father, an evil step-mother, a college life to rival Tucker Max, and working for politicians on the Presidential as well as local stage. He has been, at times, a devout Catholic, a closet atheist, and an honorary member of the Jewish tribe. And this guy is none other than Nicholas Denmon.

His latest novel "For Nothing" has received ten reviews, at the time of writing and all have been 5 Stars. Wow! I am certain that you intend to know how he did it, so am I. I guess the guy who had received English study at the University of Florida, must have spent sufficient time in perfecting the art. No wonder he can win every heart of its readers. No surprise that the talent he possess in story telling is his trade mark. This guy shines even as a child, and he started shining from the moment he could talk. It is really marvelous to have him here.

Nick's love of art knows little in the way of limitations, as he loves unique paintings, music, acting, film, and of course writing. You can see vividly that the passion he possess, and his inert skills put him far beyond accomplishing true master piece of fine art that is worth reading. The title of his book, For Nothing, truly contradicts with the book which is full of emotions and excitements from the beginning to the end and made every reader glues to the book until the finishing line. A true magical writing every writer is looking for.

You should grab hold of this book if thriller genre is your taste and don't take my word for it. Read it yourself and make your own assessment and put forward your feedback in the comment provided below.

Before I end this post, please take a quick look at the summary of the above book below to give you some excitement.

Book Summary:

Undercover cop Alex Vaughn goes deeper than ever into the organized crime family of Buffalo, NY. Motivated by justice and revenge, he seeks out the assassin that laid his friend Jack low.

Professional killer Rafael Rontego traverses the deadly politics of Buffalo’s mafia underbelly. In a city whose winter can be just as deadly as those wielding power, Rontego tries to stay ahead of the game.
