Sofa and table in the hotel room - The single most powerful tool for winning a negotiation is the ability to get up and walk away from the table without a deal

Salt Lake City, Utah, is a worldwide center for genealogical research.
Even the big department stores sell genealogy supplies.

One newcomer to Salt Lake City, and a non-researcher, got a job as a

friends of the victims - simply concerned residents who cared.

"Your joy, your pain, your loss, your gain - are ours...for you are
one of us." That is the powerful message of family. At its best, even
an Internet family can help fill our need for closeness. Your joy,
your pain, your loss, your gain - can be shared. You belong. And
together, we'll celebrate it! Or, we will get through it.
