My first Rest in Peace shirt.
Lil Chris.
In a millions years. I never thought any of my friends would get shot and die. A friend is a friend. We weren't close friends, but still friends as well as teammates. It was something that hit me deep. I have all types of friends from different areas of the U.S and around the world. I was lost when I found out. I've seen so many people with R.I.P shirts my whole life and I always thought to myself I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have to ever get a shirt for a friend of mine. I couldn't go to the memorial service or funeral. I couldn't. It was too hard for me because deep down in my heart I was hurting. I was hurting at the fact that they shot him in the head. The fact that hating on success was a result of a life being taken. I couldn't talk to anyone about it, because I could easily tear up. I had to get high off my mind and cry it out. He didn't reach the age of 21. Murdered. I don't like to say he got shot. He was Murdered on the 800 block of Jefferson street NW. We only can live for him. He meant so much to everyone one because he knew everyone. If you knew him, you could only think of funny stories about him. From peeing in the football locker room my freshman year to him acting a fool at parties. Maybe some can relate and others won't ever know what it feels like to lose a friend to gun violence. My heart goes out to his family. And we all make promises to live and turn up for him. It's only right. My first Rest in Peace shirt is in the making for Chris. I had to write this first because all of this will be on my shirt. It will remind me that life is precious. I can’t tell what the future holds, but I pray this will be my first and only R.I.P shirt. Sorry it took me a year bro. Keep Blessing us.

...According to the American Republic“ World War 1 began on July 28, 1914. Its immediate cause was the assassination of the archduke, Franz Ferdinand. Other causes were imperialism, which is when one country is dominating another; nationalism, which is an intense pride for one’s homeland; and militarism, which is the building up of military weapons.” “ Alliances also contributed to the war because when they signed an alliance with another county they gave each other their help if they needed it.

Reaseach on Indian Film Industry

...Conducting performance appraisals at National Office Supplies You have recently been appointed as HR advisor for National Office Supplies, a provider of stationery and office furniture for businesses throughout the UK. Whilst based at their headquarters in Hertfordshire, part of your role is to visit the regional sales offices and to audit their HR processes and practices. The company has experienced sound levels of growth in recent years and has experienced growth in turnover of one-third in the last three years. Prior to your appointment, the HR manager worked alone, aside from an administrative assistant, involved primarily in advising regional managers on recruitment and selection, conducting induction and ensuring that the company’s policies (such as health and safety and equal opportunities) complied with legislation. Typically, she would only visit regional offices to attend disciplinary or grievance meetings. Whilst the company has broad guidelines on how each department is managed, the general attitude among senior management at HQ has been that as long as each office is performing adequately, they are happy not to intervene or get too involved at regional level unless directly asked to do so. However following the recent growth of the firm from a relatively small, tight-knit organisation to a larger, more bureaucratic company, the senior managers are keen to introduce a ‘performance culture’ into the firm and to formalise and standardise its key HR processes. ...
