Ages 15 to 25 – Riskiest Years of Young Man’s Life
One Big Mistake could land you in deep do-dos. Most mistakes can recover from.
Big mistakes like Concord $200 part not fitted caused big crash.

Problems could be caused by some idiot, e.g. drivers on road, but sometimes you are that idiot.
Big risk – Friends, Peer Group pressure (80% of black youths known to police – DNA, 1 in 6 in jail)
(see Spider & The Fly Music at http://www.arcwebsite.org/pages/arc_music.htm )
Stick Bruk in a yu Ears – The elderly just wish you well.
Biggest Sins – Sloth – Do Nothing (till decide what want to do)
Avarice – Wanting material things NOW, and not wanting to work for them.
Prerogative of Youth – Despite all advice from elders go and make the same mistakes.
“Free imagination is the inestimable prerogative of youth and it must be cherished and guarded as a treasure.”
Grow up too soon – Only reach manhood about age of 25.
Emotions – Over reaction, Take time to cool down
Many Obstacles – Shit Happens, The World does not owe you a living or anything, Life is unfair. Deal with it , get over it and move on.
Fittest, Healthiest, Most creative, adventurous, highest learning rate and can be most enjoyable Part of Your Life.
Some Points:
University – out of London – over 10,000 people aged 18-21 – half women , cheap disco, films, travel
Need to do the work.

Attitude, Follow coaching, Fitness, Technique, Tactics, Strategy, Mental
Believe in Self – Despite flaws & shortcomings You are probably better than most in some aspects (even if they get the glory / money).
Nothing you can’t do with appropriate training and support. Look around you –
All things made by man you can make.
Find something Successful & Improve on It
Serendipity – need some luck – right person, right time (need to mix / network with many people)
Do it, Don’t just think you can do it
Most inventors don’t profit from inventions – Get a Patent before speaking to anyone.
Only ideas / inventions that count are ones done (less than 1%)
Never have enough Money – Always want more
Powerful tool NOT TO WANT (know difference between needs and wants)
Systems & Methods more effective than talent / genius.
Groups more effective than many individuals.
Perseverance essential quality for success.
Success = 5% inspiration, 99% Perspiration
Not overnight – Olympic Medal winner – how many races run. Mobo winning musician – how many songs done. Need years of practice, do lots of tedious stuff. Microbiology technicians do job with lots of tedium, unpleasant stuff so they can do the research they want.
Success – What is Success; Pay bills, publish articles, travel, flash car & house?
Research says in same age group most successful different people at ages 10, 20,30,40, 50 – Never too late, Don’t necessarily last.
No Interrupts – Need to work; study, concentrate despite distractions.
Contacts / networking – It is who you know.
Think Ahead – Plan – Have Yearly Goals
Change is the only constant. Must continuously change and learn. Right now not always right.
Everyone has different views – looking out of different windows. No-one always right. Most things have positives and negatives.
Sometimes is mostly the answer; few things 100%.
Calculate – Do the sums. More time spent arguing than doing task. Wash up the dishes. Is hassle of queue worth it.
Murphy’s Law – Whatever can go wrong will.

Some ARC Voices
We would like to Thank you for listening to us. We hope you will become an engineer, and use you knowledge and skill to the benefit of humanity and the Earth and help others in any way you can.
We appreciate the that some of you will not be convinced or interested. Some will wait and see, some are too arrogant; some just want to play, some too afraid, some too busy with life’s pressures; so already know what they want to do; some various other reasons. Only some will become engineers. As the saying goes ‘Many are called but few are chosen’. We believe my message is for those who are chosen; and who believe we can make the world a better, safer, less violent, more secure and peaceful place.
Are you sure there is nothing you can do to help someone worse off than you? Are you Sure?” (The Staple Singers) Some will reject the message; many others will not hear the small voices of peace in the wilderness of the many sounds of modern life. Remember. “with all its” violence, “sham, drudgery and broken dreams; it is still a beautiful world. Be Careful. Strive to be happy” (Desiderata); and
Enjoy! Whatever you do.

Developers of Web Sites
and E-Commerce Web Shops

Internet – Web Sites and E-commerce Solutions
(Web sites built from as Little a £300)

We recognize that the Internet is Now and the Future. Whether its communication (e-mail, searching), a web site (marketing brochures) or an e-commerce web shop (selling on line) the internet plays an essential role in the modern efficient business.
We can get you connected and operational on the internet within a few days. This can include signing up with an ISP, installing and configuring the hardware and software, setting up your e-mail accounts, sharing your internet connection among several computers and training you and your staff.
Having a web site means your business can be found by customers searching the internet for your goods and services. You can also reduce printing costs by having a brochure of your goods and services that you can refer customers from anywhere in the world to. We can design, build and deploy your web site and will also register it with search engines.
If you supply goods the you should consider an e-commerce web shop. We can design, build and deploy the most comprehensive low-cost e-commerce solution available today; so your businesses can trade successfully across the Internet. Features include catalogue creation and maintenance, shopping cart, ordering, security, and order processing. Customers will be able to browse through your catalogue, order and pay for your goods securely. You will receive emails of their order and confirmation of payment. All you need to do is post the goods when the orders come in.

Case Studies

We built the web site www.vmpeace.org from scratch within one week. We registered the domain name, purchased the web space, designed the site navigation, designed the web pages, converted data from Microsoft word files, sourced graphics, took photographs, uploaded, and tested the web site all within one week.

Examples of Web Sites Include

Home
www.arcwebsite.org
www.action-for-un-renewal.org.uk
www.phoneforfood.biz
www.unga-link.org.uk
www.vmpeace.org

The e-commerce site
www.asinspired.co.uk
took a little long; one month. This is a fully functional web shop selling ladies clothing. We registered the domain name, purchased the web space, sourced the most appropriate e-commerce package, designed the site navigation, arranged receipt of payments, took photographs, entered product descriptions, prices and options, wrote the legal and administrative information, uploaded, and tested the web site. To popularize the site we registered it with several search engines and sold some items on e-bay.

Examples of E-Commerce Web Shops Include

Aray – Application and Security

Our aim to help you get the best use out of your IT infrastructure investment. Implementing the most effective and efficient applications for your business; solve your problems to get and keep your system operating effectively.

Applications

Helping to overcome obstacles

Having the appropriate applications for your business can save you time and money. Productivity can be increased. Increase data integration, reduce double keying, increase your IT functionality and capability; so that you can efficiently perform the processes and have readily available the data your business requires. We can source appropriate (e.g. cheap) software to suit your requirements. Just using the standard office software may not be enough. We can integrate office software and some applications to increase your efficiency.

Security – Management, users and the Internet

We all recognise that security is intrusive and impedes our ability to get work done.

Your computers and network are used for confidential and mission critical functions, you are dependent on them. They have valuable information. Your network is vulnerable as you are sharing information both internally and externally. How serious management is about security is measured not only by policies but by amount of resources spent on security. Security failures are costly and have legal implications -e.g. data protection, reputation, services unavailable. Our Security policies are business driven; tailored to be appropriate for each business.

The key issue is between security and usability. We balance security intrusiveness, ease of use and total cost of

Keys to success

ownership. Every facet of the infrastructure must be examined and protected. These include physical locations, computer
hardware, networking, operating systems, applications and management practices. We can determine the level of information security that is right for your organisation. We can source the portfolio of tools, technologies, and processes that will optimize your computer and information security systems.

We focus on Management, users and the Internet. Especially the Internet, as we perceive that to hold the greatest risks. Everyone connected to the Internet is a potential insider in your organisation. “Security issues pose a significant barrier to the ubiquitous adoption of internet based e-business applications.” IDC. The number of infected email attachments and attempted attacks is so high that infection is still a serious risk. Patch management is an important part of our service. In 2003 there were over 100,000 incidents reported, and 4,000 Vulnerabilities reported. “Security problems in cyberspace are unlikely to disappear or be solved any time soon” IEEE IC.

We can set up Security and Configuration Management Systems (eg security plan, back ups), configure your operating system for optimum security, install security tools (such as firewalls, biometric finger print scanners), and plan and implement your patch management practices.

Good enough is good enough. Good enough always beats perfect (too expensive!)
The really hard part is determining what is good enough.
We can do that.
