BEIJING http://www.dallasstarsteamstore.com/adidas-brett-ritchie-jersey , June 26 (Xinhua) -- "The mystic chords of memory...will yet swell...when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature."

In his first inaugural address 154 years ago, Abraham Lincoln appealed to the best qualities in the human spirit to navigate the United States through the storm of civil war that lay ahead.

A century and half later, another impassioned American has invoked the same notion on Sino-U.S. relations to "allow their capacity for wisdom,tolerance and forward thinking to prevail over historic rivalries, mutual suspicion and the all too pervasive zero-sum mentality."

William Mundell is producing a 90-minute documentary on the U.S.-China relationship http://www.dallasstarsteamstore.com/adidas-brett-hull-jersey , Better Angels, due for release later this year.

Mundell has assembled a team including two-time Academy Award winning director, Malcolm Clarke. It is not the first time the 54-year-old entrepreneur has invested in film-making. In 2009, he produced a documentary on gerrymandering, which led to political reform in California.

"If we could reform as vexing an issue as gerrymandering through a movie that costs less than a million (dollars) to make, I thought we could use the same medium to move the needle on U.S.-China relations," Mundell said.

China's extraordinary rise has challenged the U.S. in many ways. Cooperation usually comes along with frictions.

"Our goal is to change public opinion http://www.dallasstarsteamstore.com/adidas-bobby-smith-jersey , a building block of the relationship. We have to dig deep into the infrastructure, the plumbing of the relationship," he said.

In 1991, Mundell made his first visit to China to seal a business contract. Over the years, he traveled extensively in China. He is an honorary professor at Beijing's Tsinghua University.

"I was a fly on the wall, listening and watching, and now I feel it's time to speak up http://www.dallasstarsteamstore.com/adidas-ben-bishop-jersey ," said the son of Nobel laureate Robert Mundell.

Last year Mundell made 11 trips to China, almost once a month. The self-described idealist stayed at his friend's home in a Beijing hutong (alley), where he thought and rethought how to keep his brainchild moving forward.

In producing the documentary, Mundell interviewed prominent figures such as former secretary of state Madeleine Albright, Chinese businessman Wang Jianlin, first chief executive of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region C.H. Tung, and also ordinary Chinese and Americans. So far he has accumulated more than 700 hours of footage.

"The film won't be a talking essay. It doesn't commemorate a special event in history http://www.dallasstarsteamstore.com/adidas-antoine-roussel-jersey , it will be deep and emotional, connected by a common theme, through narration," he said.

In one sequence, Mundell and his team traveled to one of America's poorest counties, Thomasville, Alabama http://www.dallasstarsteamstore.com/adidas-alexander-radulov-jersey , to film the stories of two American women whose lives changed when a Chinese company opened a copper plant, bringing 300 new jobs and new life into a community that hadn't seen any real investment in 45 years.

"I hope that when the Chinese watch the sequence, they cannot help but feel a great sense of pride. And when the American watch, they can have a chance to change the stereotype that Chinese investment will always lead to loss of jobs," Mundell said.

In another sequence, an ex-U.S. Marine started a new career and rebuilt confidence in life, not at home http://www.dallasstarsteamstore.com/ , but in Shanghai, where he was voted one of the best teachers. He describes life as realizing American dream in China.

"Each story was carefully chosen to illuminate some unique and perhaps little-known facet of the relations, and each one could provide audience with fresh insights," he said. "I hope it will surprise, shatter myths, and move people."

When Mundell began work on the film, he thought quite differently. "I thought I was going to find the magic bullet http://www.dallasstarsteamstore.com/adidas-valeri-nichushkin-jersey , the most innovative policies, things that have not got enough air time in policy circles. Then halfway through filming, we realized that none of these policies could flourish if we do not fix the infrastructure of the relationship," he said.

"In attempting to shift public opinion about each other, we got something unexpected. I think we made a film about Americans and Chinese rediscovering who they are at their core."

The film, which has cost three million U.S. dollars to make, aims for a global theatrical release later this year.

"We are not whitewashing the differences. We want to remind people be sufficiently open-minded to create an opening in the bilateral relationship http://www.dallasstarsteamstore.com/adidas-tyler-seguin-jersey ," Mundell said.

Buyer Guide For CCTV, Monitored Alarm Systems & Business Security Companies August 14, 2013 | Author: Andrew Sutton | Posted in Business

Dealers range from massive companies who maintain their own sales forces and local offices to smaller resellers that employment as approved third-party installers for the large companies or as independent security companies.

Regardless of whether you decide to travel large or small, alarm installers sometimes provide all-inclusive services that come with equipment and monitoring service.

Keep in mind that while many monitored commercial alarm system installers provide name-brand or private label equipment compatible with most central monitoring stations, some companies may install proprietary systems – equipment that only works with their licensed monitoring stations. There may also be master programming and lockout codes that prevent you from making any adjustments to your system, like changing codes on your own or switching monitoring services when your contract has ended. Make sure you have full access to these codes if you own your equipment.

How to decide on a commercial alarm system dealer When you are prepared to buy a monitored commercial alarm system, speak to a couple of totally different firms before having something installed. They will conduct risk assessments to determine what your security challenges are and how to address them..
