Beyond the mere writing and using words in English there is the power of words... empowering words that go beyond the words...

No matter how good your English is... you'll still need to convince your correspondent... and that takes more than words... but the right words... there is an 'attitude' as much in the language as in the chosen words that will tell you out... and make you win over your opponents and competitors...

I have seen situations turn around... simply by rewriting material or merely changing a few words... in the course of my training and coaching carrer...

If you think it's expensive to hire a professional... think twice before hiring an amateur...

Today most people in most countries have studied a sustainable amount of English...

I have clients which are European and global sized groups who have to interact with people -both colleagues and clients or customers- in many countries across the globe... to find that albeit everyone speaks English... nobody really understands what the others are on about...

Worst the British and the Americans are usually the ones who are completely left out... at lost for words to help them understand...

All those 'English speakers' are in actual fact DIYing their English to suit their needs in their corner... encrypting indecipherable messages... leaving their correspondents to guess at best what they have trying -or hoping- to get at...

They have been confronted with this situation and often asked me for help... trouble is... sometimes even I can't understand...

I usually recommend one of my services which is rewriting -on top of training and coaching- thus making sure everybody is expressing themselves in the same English' and thus eventually encouraging a quick, efficient, time and money saving means of communication... let's hope they all get the message...

All the ancient people talk about -and describe in large details- aliens landing and taking off equipped with technology they couldn’t describe so advanced it was in comparison…

The ancient Greeks had fire that burnt on water… on the sea…

Millennia before Columbus reached South America to look for gold in Eldorado, the Ancient Egyptians were literally rolling… swimming in gold… and yet they considered gold didn’t come from Egypt but from elsewhere… gold is to date much sought after for its electricity conductivity qualities… all those monuments sprung up on earth with a matter of centuries… when decades earlier their were Bedouins roaming the deserts… and staying under tents… so were literally straight out of the caves… as they didn’t have the first notion of architecture…

When it comes to energy supply, did the Ancient Egyptians use the sun for much more than mere worship ? They are said to have built the Great Pyramid at Giza without literally any tools !

Mica is used for its isolation qualities could have been used in connection with gold…

In Baalbek, Cuzco, Giza, Luxor, Nemrud Dag, Ollantaytambo, Puma Punku, Sacsayhuamán, Saqqara, Sillustani, Thebes, among so many other places… building, stones and statues feature elements that weigh thousand of tons… which were move up hill and down dale sometimes over hundred of miles !

No matter which way you look at it, Puma Punku –and many ancient cities- simply could not have been built by man… and the mysteries of the faces in the sunken temple of Tiahuanaco remains unexplained… not to mention the terra cotta dish of Tiahuanaco –as well as the Pokotia monolith- exhibiting Sumerian and proto-Sumerian glyphs and cuneiform writings estimated dating from 3, 000 BC if not more… discovered near Lake Titicaca… cuneiform glyph also found in a cave in Chaco Canyon (Anasazi homeland in New Mexico)… and Puma Punku again is home to blocks featuring the same design as an obelisk in Ethiopia… and the same type of design on the walls of Darius’s Apadana palace in Persepolis (Iran)…

Tiahuanaco is thought to be the oldest city known in the world… flaunting a record 17, 000 years of existence… hence twice as old as Jericho… once thought to be the oldest…

The Sarcophagus of Palenque caught one of us in flight… and an ancient hieroglyph in Egypt clearly shows moderns warfare crafts… and the statues of Easter Island seem to have been built with exactly the same technology as that of those of ancient Egypt… and how they managed to design the underground tombs to this level of perfection is simply astounding ! (One of the most beautiful examples being Theban Tomb TT 33 in El-Assasif - the burial place of the Ancient Egyptian Pediamenopet, a Prophet and Chief Lector Priest during the 26th Dynasty)… and his tomb is bigger and better than most pharaohs ! There definitely seems to be more to this Pediamenopet than meets the eye… who was he really ?

On Easter Island writings have been found to be replicas of writings found in Mohenjo Daro (Pakistan)… and the Easter walls are built the same as those ancient Egyptian and Central American temples… but ancient Egypt doesn’t stop at Egypt… or even pyramid in Central and South America and elsewhere… as we have know now that Egyptian hieroglyphs, mummies and monuments have been found in Australia… and in Kinkaide Cave (Arizona)… alongside without Buddhist statue and murals…

Sadly most of those stories belong in a vault now… and the general public was never –if briefly at all- made aware of those facts… most people who actually went to visit the Grand Canyon never went near that cave… just to think the Kincaide Cave was discovered in 1909 !

All the ancient civilisations all around the world learnt to make archery, fire, pottery and weaving –among other things- at the same time and the same way… at a time where they were supposed to be primitive isolated small communities…

Sealed inside a Nomoli statue from seventeen thousand years ago, found in Guinea, was a chrome steel ball… while chrome steel was only discovered in Austria in the early twentieth century…

Closer to us, the Vikings made a sword in a metal and way that wasn’t known to Europeans until 1, 000 years later… now where did they learn to do that ?

And last but not least… enormous perfectly spherical stones have been found in many places in Central America and New Zealand… stones which nobody has a ever found reason or rhyme for… and very small stones perfectly smoothly design resembling Star Wars’ Dark Star have been found in South Africa…

(...)

After the fall of Babel’s tower men scattered and went about the earth in all directions (in the Bible)…

What if Babel had been a spaceship and the fall a landing sending people all over ?

The Neanderthal man disappeared off the face of the earth without leaving any descendants… while he was a revolution in the evolution of man… and man after him evolved in one big quantum leap… where did those people come from ? The same fate struck the Minoans 3,500 years ago…

(...)

The Ancient Egyptians were convinced that they had come from the sky as Osiris (the teacher of mankind)… and they were going back there when they died… to meet the stars… just like the Torajans (the people from above) from Indonesia… who also built boat shaped coffins to take their dead from the land of the living to that of the dead… like the Egyptians and the Vikings…

Ancient Egyptian temples at Dendera were built on an older temple site… leading back to the first temple… believed to have been build by the gods… just like the Hebrew temple was…

Akhenaten and his kin were largely outsized… and presented outstanding ‘human’ features… very large heads and skulls… and were represented like the Sumerians (sideways and oversized)… and in the same fashion (sideways and facing)… they all worshipped the sun and claimed to have descended from the sun…

The Incas also believed that had originated from the sky… and were returning there upon their death… so far away in space and time from the ancient Egyptians…

The Greeks and the Romans, like the Egyptians and many others, believed in a number of gods that lived in the sky –or high up above man- and regularly came down to interact with humans… as is mentioned in all the religious books… even Christianity cites many gods !

Most kings and emperor claimed to be Sons of Gods, Sons of the Sun, sometimes likened to the Sun, etc… the emperor of Viet Nam was considered Son of the Sky and imposed the Law of the Sky…

There are many ways in which Ancient Egyptians and ancient Central Americans differ… but here are so many more in which they resembled one another… and the Mayan Kings headdress was the same as that of the Pharaohs… they used similar building techniques and styles (L-shaped corner stones and metal clamps, same cardinal orientation) and both mummified their dead…

A thirty centimetre high statue was found in Colombia representing an Easter Island Moai… Easter island being thousand of miles out to sea west of Colombia… the Pascuans believe their world is part of a sunken continent that extended from the north to the south Pacific… and from South American to Australasia… and they have a map to prove it !

Of course this could illustrate the splitting of the original pangea into separate continents… but man wasn’t around then…

Ancient Ethiopia had its half man half snake god, which fed on flesh and blood… and always appeared in a rainfall… and Egyptian Pharaohs wore a snake ornament on the head…

All ancient cultures globally featured snakes and / or snake-like creatures in one form or another… as though to show the snake was an important animal to a global culture… like the Mayas of Central America, the Kanaks from New Caledonia have power snakes that swim and fly in their folklore… also designs of cobra snakes have been found in South America where no cobra had ever lived… and an unknown alphabet has been found in mysterious ancient writing found all over the globe in more and more countries… starting in Columbia right across the Atlantic to the Mediterranean and beyond in the Middle and far East… both on carved stones and terracotta ceramics… revealing an ancient global civilisation… dating back from before writing as we know it today…

Humanoid skeletons have been found all over the earth that largely outsized human skeletons and presented a much larger bulging egg-shaped skulls… which didn’t feature the three skull plates found on humans… giant skeletons are found all over the world and the giant skeleton of the Berber queen Tin-Hinan –still worshipped by the Touaregs- is now exhibited in the El Bardo Museum in Algiers… where have those giants gone now… as strange as the minute humanoids alien skeletons found in the Atacama desert and in Las Lagunas in Chile… or the extra-terrestrial mummy found in El Lahoun (Egypt) in 2012 whose name Osironay meaning star and sky sent… admittedly a alien visitor who ended his life on earth as a pharaoh adviser… looking very much like the Roswell visitor…

Who was this ‘visiting’ god ancient Egypt again who doesn’t belong in the Egyptian Pantheon ? He came to visit long before the time of the Pharaohs some 7, 000 years before…

Who was that God in the Sinai mountain ?

And where did the Hebrew find all the gold they were supposed to carry to make the Golden Calf when they were miserable slaves for four centuries ?

Who were those Elohim (Gods / God) mentioned in the Bible ?

(...)

After Akhenaten, medieval Italy Giordano Bruno seemed to know more than he should have about the universe and the beings that peopled it… earning himself, after years of imprisonment, a burning at the stake…

Why does the Vatican have its own observatory –with another one in Salford Arizona-… if they are concerned only with religious affairs ? The same Vatican which announced that the possibility of aliens is not in conflict with the religious teachings…

Yet it seems the Mormons are privy to other historical facts published in their Book…

I was called upon to coach one of my big clients in negotiating skills... for a deal they had been working on for a few months...

We sat down and started to look at the facts... and how far they'd already got into the business at hand...

All along I was reengineering their work and approach to ensure they got where they wanted in the best possible manner for both parties... and they went on to elaborate on everything stretching to their offer and future plans for the clients...

Everything was going well until after a few hours we rounded up everything and were putting the finishing touch when the fatal question came up... what for ?

That was that awful moment when they realized the 14 m €uro deal they thought they were ready to clench... was falling through in one fell swoop... as they had overlooked the main original question... their client didn't need the service they were trying to sell them !

They promised next time they'd call me first... and that should save them a lot of time and money...

If you think it's expensive to hire a professional...

Listening to audiobooks maybe for the mere pleasure of reading... or listening to a story over and over again... and that's only one of the many ways and uses of audiobooks...

Students may also listen to the recording of a book as audiobook... so as to accompany the progression through the book in a more guided or atmospheric read... doing this will eventually guide the learners to build up confidence until they can listen to a whole book without reading it even... and moving on to audiobooks solely altogether...

Listening to audiobooks while reading boosts confidence in listening comprehension...

There was a time when publishers scouted new talents... and helped them gain readership while developing their talents... most of the traditional publishing houses started there... revealing great writers to the whole world... authors we couldn't live without today... who have generated fantastic sales and returns over the centuries even...

Publishers today have lost track of their own mission and reason d'être... all they want is writers to beg them to publish... and publish whatever the public has been trained to ask for... ending up in a cheap and never-ending recap of bedsores and bios never featuring any literary talent of any sort... and often ending in the pulp...

The trend of late oscillates between cheap romance cum sex tales and thrillers... all modeled on the same patterns and never offering variety or surprise... and of course a lot them moan and whine that sales are far from what they should be...

For writers there is all the less scope...

Most of the time authors submitting work don't get any attention... or response of any sort... worse still they may get the work commented of suggest how to write better !

The same goes for magazines and all those places who claim to take submissions... a lot of work and time goes into submitting that is never accounted for or acknowledged... and when magazine do take submissions most of they are not paid and the author never gets to know it or even get a complimentary copy...

I don't actually know how much of my work has been published for the reasons above... but I've bought magazines that had actually published some of my work without ever telling me... one of them even got my name wrong !

The Lord help all of us writer everywhere...
