Join the Free Group of Discussion Teaching Hmong Culture and Language "Wherever countries we may live either in the East, in the Southeast or in the West, whatever word we may use to call ourselves, either "Miao", "Hmong"(Hmoob), "Mong"(Moob), or "Méo", we all shall remember and cherish our common cultural heritage made of sub-cultures and of divers dialects, and the fragments of our history that we have kept in memory. Whatever good relationship we may maintain within our community, whatever ideology, beliefs or lifestyle we may seek to promote, how acculturated in the Western cultures we may become, we all shall protect and preserve the unity of our ethnic group as a necessity to enhance our kind so that our descendants will have better opportunities to appear and voice as one unique group before the challenges of modern societies." Kao-Ly Yang PhD Foreword for the article " Common Basis and Characteristics of Miao and Hmong Identity ."

I wrote these 25 commandments as a panic response 15 or more years ago to an invitation to do some media training for a group of Elsevier editors. I began compiling them because I had just asked myself what was the most important thing to remember about writing a story, and the answer came back loud and clear: "To make somebody read it." Ultimately, there's no other reason for writing. Journalists write to support democracy, sustain truth, salute justice, justify expenses, see the world and make a living, but to satisfactorily do any of these things you have to have readers. Fairness and accuracy are of course profoundly important.
The Massachusetts Securities Division has filed a regulatory action against LPL Financial, LLC (“LPL”), seeking full restitution and other relief for investors residing in Massachusetts who were sold non-traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) in violation of Massachusetts law. The regulatory action stands out because it finds fault with sales of several non-traded-REITS, more as a category criticism. This approach contrasts with efforts of other regulators, such as FINRA’s regulatory actions and sanctions imposed upon David Lerner Associates for its sale of just one non-traded REIT product, known as the Apple REITs. Let’s examine the common threads that bind the multiplicity of non-traded REITs products which Massachusetts securities regulators allege as being problematic.
