When moving forward in various businesses, often times there is a need for additional capital. Whether it is for the purpose of purchasing equipment, operating capital, or contract financing, most business can always use additional funding.
Unfortunately, many business owners wait until their backs are up against the wall in a desperate situation, which it is usually too late to ask for assistance. Most financing institutions want to know that you are stable and can repay the debt, not at the end of the road on the brink of bankruptcy unless you obtain more capital.
Where can you turn for assistance for loans?

Winnie Mandela (Jennifer Hudson) is a controversial figure in the annals of South African history. For not only was she the first wife of freedom fighter-turned-President Nelson Mandela (Terrence Howard), but she was also convicted of ordering numerous human rights violations.
At the height of the anti-apartheid movement, she headed a goon squad which doled out street justice to blacks suspected of collaborating with the white establishment. With Winnie's blessing, snitches would be sentenced to death by necklace, meaning by having a gasoline-soaked tire placed on their shoulders and set on fire.

Was Jesus Christ really God or merely a charlatan, and just one of the countless "false messiahs" who "tramped through the holy Land delivering messages of God's imminent judgment" during the 1st Century? That is the central question addressed by Zealot, a controversial biography by Reza Aslan.
Thanks to a contentious interview with the author on Fox News Television that went viral, the incendiary opus was catapulted to #1 spot on the New York Times best-seller list. On the show, Dr. Aslan promoted himself as a Professor of Religion in order to deflect suspicion that he might have an anti-Christian agenda.
Truth be told, he actually only teaches Creative Writing at UC Riverside. And his credentials are also suspect, since his Ph.D. is in Sociology. So, it only makes sense to approach this self-appointed expert on the life of Jesus with a healthy skepticism, especially when you factor in that he was born a Muslim, converted to Christianity as a teenager, and then back to Islam five years later.
