Konstantin Lichtenwald Assesses New Not-for-Profit Reporting Requirements

Konstantin Lichtenwald

CPA Konstantin Lichtenwald assesses new reporting requirements for not-for-profit companies.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, August 31, 2020 / — The latest not-for-profit reporting requirements for CPAs are unusual. That's because, as opposed to requiring more detail, these requirements generally ask for less detail to be reported in statements. This means adjusting to the new requirements should be easy for nonprofit companies and their CPAs. However, CPA Konstantin Lichtenwald outlined some of the new reporting requirements not-for-profit companies do not want to overlook.

"One major change CPAs will see is that all private nonprofit organizations will now be expected to use one single format for reportings," Konstantin Lichtenwald said. "Organizations like museums and universities will now adhere to the same reporting standards as trade associations and hospitals."

Konstantin Lichtenwald explained that, after time, this should be easier for CPAs and nonprofit organizations, as the industry will have a uniform reporting format for all industries. Konstantin Lichtenwald added that another change made was in regard to the reporting of expenses. Per these new regulations, all nonprofit organizations will report expenses by natural and functional categories. This reporting was previously only required for welfare and voluntary health organizations, but it will now apply to all nonprofits.

"CPAs will notice that nonprofit organizations reporting cash flow from operations using the direct method will no longer be required to provide a reconciliation of changes in cash flows and net assets," Konstantin Lichtenwald said. "We can expect to see more organizations choosing the direct method as it requires less time, effort, and length when preparing the statement."

Konstantin Lichtenwald added that nonprofits will now be able to report investment returns net of expenses related to those investments. Previously, nonprofits were required to report investment expenses separately. This update to the reporting process should make reporting investments easier for nonprofit companies. It will also allow the internal and external investments of multiple nonprofit companies to be compared more easily.

Konstantin Lichtenwald explained that changes commonly occur in the reporting requirements for nonprofit organizations. Having a qualified CPA, like Konstantin Lichtenwald, with a specialization in taxation, corporate finance, and financial reporting for nonprofit and for-profit businesses can take the uncertainty out of your reporting process.

Lichtenwald is equipped with more than 15 years of finance and accounting experience, and he is able to offer a hands-on approach to helping your nonprofit financial team understand new reporting requirements and potential future changes as well.

The Ripple Effects of Kindness

Podcast about how to be happy.

Happiness Podcast

Creator of the Happiness Podcast

Dr. Robert Puff

Skills for learning about being kind.

Kindness matters

When we treat others with kindness, there is a ripple effect that is felt through the lives of countless people around the world.

NEWPORT BEACH, CALIFORNIA, USA, August 31, 2020 / — It only takes a spark
to get a fire going,
and soon all those around
will warm up to its glowing ….

That old song, called “Pass It On,” used to be a popular one to end campouts and church retreats. Everyone would gather in a circle in the dark with an unlit candle, and as they sang the song, one candle would be illuminated. Then that candle would be touched to the wick of another, and the person holding that candle would pivot to the next, and so on, until every candle was lit and the darkness was driven away.

It only took a spark.

Lately, I’ve been thinking of kindness in that way — how it spreads from person to person, with the potential to light up the world.

Over the last 30 years, I’ve been listening to people’s stories — the stories of their lives, and of what has caused them to be the way they are. Everyone has these stories of events from their past that caused them either unhappiness or happiness.

One thing I’ve learned in all this time is that we affect one another, and the way we treat others matters.

There’s no getting around the cruel fact that the actions of people we’re raised with matter. Some parents are loving, supportive, and kind, but then there are those who are cruel or even abusive. The words of such parents can have a lasting impact, with statements like “I wish you’d never been born,” or “You’ll never amount to anything.” This can become part of a playlist that their children return to again and again throughout their lives, because it’s incredibly difficult to change to a different soundtrack when one is so embedded into our subconscious.

Cruel words are sadly common, but physical or even sexual cruelty are also enacted upon children, and the memories of these actions, too, can reverberate for years.

You may know someone who had a very challenging childhood growing up, and if you do, you have likely seen the ripple effects of that early trauma. These people may leave their childhood and their families in the past, but as adults they may move on to instigating abuse in their own relationships, or they may numb themselves with drugs and alcohol.

Even if they avoid physical abuse of themselves (through substances) or others (through violence), people who were raised in an atmosphere of unkindness may themselves resort to being unkind to the people in their lives — the people they love. What we see in these situations is a cycle of pain that moves from one generation to the next.

Something that has surprised me over the years is that I have known people who went through incredibly difficult childhoods, and they have turned out beautifully. We might look at this outcome as being seemingly miraculous. How did they do it? How did they end the cycle of pain?

This is a topic I have explored with close attention for decades, and what I have found is that love makes its mark in people’s lives. When people who have had challenging upbringings turn out helpful, loving, and kind, I believe we are seeing ripples of a loving presence that made its mark on their lives, perhaps outside of the home.

I really believe that no matter how challenging our young lives were, someone probably loved us unconditionally. Someone showed us unconditional kindness, even in the darkest of hours. It could be anyone. Are they angels? Are they beings that were sent to help us? Whatever they are, they’re with all of us, and the spark of their lovingkindness passes on and on.

I’ve never found anyone who didn’t have someone in their lives who showed them some kindness, some love, even when it seemed like everyone else in their lives was cruel to them.

Here’s what I know about kindness: It has a ripple effect. The love of a single kind, angelic presence can issue from them in wave after wave after wave, washing over and through us and continuing on to touch those in our path. For some, even with the horrible things that are happening in their lives, they are able to take this kindness and turn it into something beautiful.

All of us have opportunities in our lives to be kind to others — to say something encouraging, to treat them in a friendly way, to show expressions of kindness toward them — and when we do this, we create a ripple of kindness that radiates in two directions: outward and inward.

The kindness that radiates outward toward others can help them to improve their lives by giving them hope, by helping them through difficult times, or by putting a smile on their face. We often do not know the effects of our kindness on others, but we can be sure that it makes a difference. It could be that someone goes home with a happier heart, and thus is more likely to share kindness with loved ones — perhaps with children.

And beyond eliciting a simple smile, our stopping and making time for kindness to others might pull them out of dark despair. It might help them when we don’t realize that they’re having a hard time. It could even spare a precious life from being ended through suicide. We don’t know how far our ripples extend, but I believe they can go very far sometimes, and just by the mindset of love and care, we can help others to live an improved life.

Kindness is a source of hope for the hopeless. It opens the door to positive possibilities. When others are being kind to us and they really don’t have to be, we take that in. We say, “Oh, maybe there is love, and maybe I can let that love in and even love myself.” Even if we feel that we do not deserve kindness, we understand that someone else feels differently about us and our value and worth. Kindness loosens our bonds to let that love in, and as a result, we may begin to show compassion toward our own stoutly beating heart.

The ripple effects of kindness affect the people we come in contact with and the people they encounter after they leave us, and there is every reason to expect that the beat goes on and on and on. “It only takes a spark,” as the song says. The more kindness we show, the more the world around us will become a much more beautiful place. There is so much negativity and darkness in our world, but our kindness can be a light.

I remember once going on a tour of a cave. There is a moment in most such tours where the guide turns out the lights, and there is no dark like that. It is a fact of physics that light can’t bend; it can travel only in a straight line. Once we’re in a cave like that, we’ve moved through narrow passages and around corners and up and down slopes, and there was no way for a ray of light to follow us there. That would be physically impossible.

If someone in the tour group happened to have a watch with a glowing dial or a lighted digital display, what a difference that would make! That light, imperceptible in the light of day, would be so bright in a dark cave because it’s the only source of light to be found. Kindness is like this. When we’re in our darkest places, the spark of the simplest friendly gesture can illuminate our lives and guide us on our way.

When the lights finally do come on in this part of the standard cave tour, what an experience that is. It is almost blinding. Maybe this would be considered low light under normal circumstances; maybe there’s hardly any light at all. But kindness shines when people are in despair or struggling, and we can help people navigate by our example.

For the people in our daily lives — our friends and our family members — we have an opportunity throughout the day to share our kindness with them. Where we might come home to them and tease them, kid them, or make fun of them, we can instead choose a loving word that can encourage and lift them. This is something we can do throughout the day, wherever we are.

I have often counseled couples were struggling in their relationship. The main thing I try to impart to them is the importance of a tender word. I encourage them to say something friendly to them throughout each day to give each other hope and help them to feel love. We experience love through kindness, in romantic relationships, but also in our daily lives. For example, in the workplace, if we are a supervisor with employees who report to us, we can correct them, but for every correction, we should give them dozens of words of encouragement, too.

Sometimes people choose to be unkind to us. When this happens, a good choice can be to walk away and put distance between ourselves and the ugliness. Another alternative? We can be kind back to the person who has chosen to treat us cruelly. We are never required to be giving to those who take from us, emotionally or otherwise, but it is an option we might want to try, and a potent one. Unlikely as it seems, kindness is one of the most important forces in the universe.

I mentioned that kindness can radiate outwards toward others, but it can also radiate inwards towards ourselves. When this happens, we open ourselves up to happiness.

The truth is, happiness is only possible through kindness. We are not going to find happiness in our hearts if we treat others with unkindness, because kindness is part of the journey toward happiness. We honestly do need to be kind toward others if we want to find peace in our lives.

Those people who are kind are much more likely to be happy in life. They don’t have to look in the mirror and say, “I’m a cruel, unkind person.” Instead they can say that even if people are treating them unkindly, they can be kind toward others.

It is really important that we understand the value of maintaining boundaries when we are dealing with cruel and sadistic people. Everyone needs kindness in their lives, but those who would choose to abuse you do not need their kindness to come from you. If someone is being cruel to you in your life right now, you should recognize that you have the right to get up and walk away — and if someone is being physically or sexually abusive, you must find a way to exit that situation the moment you can do so safely. There are resources to help, including the National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-7233).

Beyond abuse, many of us find that the world is not a kind place, but even when we see others out to cause misery and unhappiness, we can choose to be that watch dial in the cave, or that circle of candles, lit one wick to the next until night starts to look like day. When we take the many opportunities we have to be kind throughout the day, we can feel the ripple effects of kindness inside of us, radiating through self-love.

There are many parts to living a happy life, but one of the main ones is kindness. I doubt you or I will ever meet a truly happy person who is unkind, because a person who is unkind will never find happiness. The ripple effects would be so damaging to themselves and to others in their lives.

You are reading this because you desire a life filled with happiness. Maybe we all want such a life, but you have taken steps to embrace happiness and to welcome it into your life. I have been talking about happiness for quite a long time, with individual, with groups, and with listeners and readers in various formats. I am always promoting the value of meditation — of finding that still, small voice inside of us, of getting in sync with nature, of slowing down our frenzied lives. I suggest making time for pleasure and counting our blessings. But one of the most important means to becoming happy is kindness. It’s the one component of a happy life that has no substitute and that must be our set point if we are to know the bliss we seek.

All of us are here in this human existence so that we can be happy and at peace. We can create happiness in ourselves by one means more than any other: by being kind. And because kindness ripples outward, we can make the world a better place if we work towards cultivating kindness in others.

Random acts of kindness

An old bumper sticker used to implore other drivers to “Practice Random Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty.” These days we often hear about random acts of kindness being performed. Many of us have been in a line at the coffee shop where one customer after another picks up the tab for the customer next in line, and unbroken chains of random kindness can last for days.

Here are a few kind acts that may light a spark in you — one that can light another person’s candle, and then another’s.

• Walk someone’s cart from the parking lot to the cart corral.
• Hold a door.
• Offer a sincere compliment.
• Leave an extra-large tip.
• Pick up and throw away a piece of litter.
• Give canned goods to a food drive.
• Offer to pick up items from a store for a shut-in.
• Shovel or sweep a neighbor’s walk.
• Leave an encouraging note under a stranger’s windshield wiper.
• Do an extra task to lighten a coworker’s load.
• Hug (with permission) a loved one who looks down.
• Bring donuts to the office.
• Spend time with a child in your life.

Here’s hoping (and knowing) that the kindness you show comes right back to you, in the words of the Beatles song “The End”: “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”

Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival Online

Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival


At your service!

Wining and Dining Goes Virtual

The virtual Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival will strive to recreate the festive joie de vivre atmosphere the event is famous for.”

— HKTB Chairman Dr. Y. K. Pang

HONG KONG, CHINA, August 31, 2020 / — Hong Kong is a city of wining and dining and is one of the most popular events in the City of Light, and this year it is going virtual.

Organized by the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB), the “Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival” will get not only a virtual taste but also a global format. With the festival, just a device away, imagine the excitement of clinking wine glasses with someone halfway around the world or learning a new way to prepare a delectable dish from a top chef – all from the comfort of your own favorite chair.

In today’s world, meeting someone for a glass of wine via Zoom is natural. Human beings are so adaptable, and in reality, the virtual world expands our universe that much farther. From Hong Kong to New York City to Monte Carlo to Saint Petersburg to South Africa, the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival will be sure to tickle our taste buds and our worldly desire to travel. And this year, because the event is online, it really will be possible to meet people from all around the globe!

Explaining this strategic move, HKTB Chairman Dr. Y. K. Pang said: “The Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival has been one of the most popular events among locals and tourists alike since its inception over a decade ago. Despite the COVID-19 outbreak this year, we hope people can continue to enjoy Hong Kong’s unique dining culture while providing business opportunities for the local F&B sector amidst this challenging economic climate. Organizing the Festival virtually allows us to achieve both objectives without compromising public health and safety.”

Although in a different format, the Festival will still be delivering virtual versions of a line-up of programs equally exciting as in the real-life editions, featuring world-class food and drinks. So even if you live in Timbuktu, this year, you can take part in the annual Festival from wherever you are.

Dr. Pang added: “The virtual Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival will strive to recreate the festive joie de vivre atmosphere the event is famous for by offering access to an exclusive wine and gourmet experiences curated by experts on the subject. Taking advantage of the virtual format, the event will be extended from the usual four days to several weeks so that more people can take part regardless of time and geographical constraints.”

To preserve as much original flavor of the physical event as possible, the HKTB is building an online hub where most of the Festival programs will take place. A variety of wine merchants will be providing special discounts and products tailored for the Festival which participants can browse and purchase in a virtual exhibition space. Meanwhile, renowned wine and food critics, chefs, and wine experts will be invited to speak on wine-pairing and culinary topics in virtual workshops and classes.

The Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival was launched in 2009 after Hong Kong and Bordeaux signed the Memorandum of Understanding on Cooperation in Wine-related Business. The large-scale outdoor event quickly became the talk of the town and was dubbed one of the world’s top 10 international food and wine festivals by Forbes Traveler.

Dates and details of the Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival will be forthcoming from the Hong Kong Tourism Board.

Bon Appetite!

Left Behind 20th Anniversary Cover Art

Today's Climate of Uncertainty Makes the Release of Kirk Cameron's Blockbuster Left Behind Trilogy More Relevant than Ever

The world foretold in the Bible & dramatized in the LEFT BEHIND films has never been more real than it is now. It’s really happening, exactly as the Bible predicted thousands of years ago. ”

— Paul Lalonde

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2020 / — Cinedigm is set to release a 20th Anniversary special edition release of the LEFT BEHIND film trilogy tomorrow, September 1. Digitally remastered from a new 4K scan from 35MM and with a color upgrade, the 20th Anniversary Edition provides an incredible visual experience that will look great on today’s home entertainment systems.

When the films released twenty years ago, conspiracy theories, misinformation campaigns, censorship, and a deadly virus infecting the world were all part of the thrilling plotlines from the LEFT BEHIND movies produced by Cloud Ten Pictures, based on the #1 New York Times Best Seller book series of the same name. Those movies were an overnight success and went on to sell more than ten million copies on VHS and DVD. In today’s climate of uncertainty, these stories are more timely than ever, with the ‘plotlines’ mirroring our news headlines.

The fear and uncertainty of the Book of Revelation comes to life in the LEFT BEHIND TRILOGY. Millions vanish, the society is in chaos, evil is lurking, the world is at war; this is the premise for the ground-breaking faith-based trilogy. Starring Kirk Cameron and Louis Gossett, Jr., the anniversary release features all three iconic films: Left Behind, Left Behind: Tribulation Force, and Left Behind: World at War and all-new bonus features including the Hollywood premiere special, cast and crew interviews, additional footage, a candid interview with Kirk Cameron about the importance of faith and a featurette with Louis Gossett, Jr. Dove Approved for 12+ the series has become one of the best known faith-based series, changing the genre’s landscape for years to come.

“The world we see on the news every day is scarier and more uncertain than it has been in at least a generation,” says LEFT BEHIND screenwriter, producer, and Cloud Ten Pictures founder Paul Lalonde. “The world foretold in the Bible and dramatized in the LEFT BEHIND films has never been more real than it is now. It’s really happening, exactly as the Bible predicted thousands of years ago.”

The LEFT BEHIND TRILOGY was directed by a trio of excellent directors Vic Sarin, Bill Corcoran, and Craig R. Baxley. The films were produced by Joe Goodman, Ralph Winter, Nicholas Tabarrok, Peter Lalonde, and Andre van Heerden. Executive Producers include Ron Booth, Paul Lalonde, Peter Lalonde, Bobby Neutz, and Edwin Ng.


Cloud Ten Pictures has been a producer and pioneer in the Christian film space for more than 25 years. Its innovative marketing and use of well-known actors paved the way for a stream of successful faith-based films over the past two decades. Cloud Ten’s productions now include 11 feature films and more than a dozen documentaries, all focused on Bible prophecy.

Author's Eye Opening Memoirs Include Talking His Way Into a Cockpit of Commercial Plane and flying It From DCA to ATL

McGuire’s Memoirs Book!

McGuire in Marseille, France exploring which restaurant has the best Bouillabaisse

McGuire in Marseille, France exploring which restaurant has the best Bouillabaisse

I asked the Crusty Captain––Politely––If I Could Fly the Fully Loaded Boeing 727 and He Looked at My Bow Tie and Assumed I Was a Harmless & Proper Gentleman!

If the passengers knew I was flying the plane they would have said, ‘Let’s Roll’ and I would have been tossed out over Spartanburg, South Carolina.”

— Jake McGuire

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, August 31, 2020 / — Jake McGuire, who already has ten books in print is finishing up his colorful memoirs entitled, 'Out of Line • The Adventures of a Wayward Photographer,' is looking for a publisher and movie house.

But he warns ALL WHO HAVE A FEAR OF FLYING, including editors, publishers and Hollywood producers to call their therapists before even reading this press release.

McGuire, who has spent his lifetime on jaw-dropping, eye-opening adventures says, "I've traveled to, lived in or had to flee from more than 30 countries."

His mantra of ‘thinking big’ and ‘being daring’ has landed him, amongst other feats; talking his way into the cockpit and flying the commercial jet, finessing his way into the Oval Office for a visit with a President of the United States, and managing to join the Amir of Bahrain in his Royal Palace for tea, whereupon McGuire was showered with gifts of diamonds and gold before he left the Oil Sheikhdom.

My memoirs are by a photographer, about a photographer, so the stories are extremely visual,” he says, “so they easily translate into an entertaining motion picture, or a fun Broadway performance."

"I have entertaining adventures that Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos can't match!" He says, "They have more money but I live a richer life!"

McGuire, who is no stranger to “Out of Line” techniques–as his book title says–thought he’d go big and pitch his book to Hollywood. He got the idea from his sister in North Carolina who said, “I’ll pray to the Patron Saint of Movie Rights!” They both laughed, remembering their childhood school days where the nuns had a Patron Saint for everything and everyone.

When the name George Clooney, came up they agreed the angelic-looking Clooney might make a great Patron Saint!

So, enter George Clooney! Not only Clooney number one…..but also number two, and number three!

“When my initial pitch to Clooney went out on the EIN, PR Newswire, it got a lot of media play,” he says, “but I never really expected to hear from George Clooney. So when I heard from three of them all claiming THEY were the real George Clooney, my head spun around in a 360 like the girl in "The Exorcist."

First, a little background on McGuire’s “Out of Line” memoirs: From working on the staff of a weekly newspaper to becoming one of America’s most published photographers, McGuire’s book reveals how he ditched his disheveled looks, switched to dapper, acted daring, and then watched his life blossom into a Hollywoodesque series of entertaining globe trotting adventures.

McGuire has been a newspaper photographer, photo editor, reporter, food and travel writer, chef, restaurant critic, and an admitted mischief-maker. He now has ten coffee-table books in print. He is always on the move searching for good food, fine wine, and delicious adventures all woven together.

McGuire's gourmet adventures include how an upperclass, noble-woman living in Paris took him to Marseille to see which restaurant had the best Bouillabaisse. "We had so many versions, that after a week I was growing barnacles," he laughs, " and she was kind enough to pick up the the entire tab including the high speed TVG Train to Marseille!"

McGuire’s calls from the three Clooney's came interspersed with him receiving his usual dozens of daily robo-calls, junk call, sales calls, and prank calls––of which, while he is promoting his book––he is hesitant to ignore, THE POSSIBLE BIG ONE.

“I’m hopeful the real Clooney might want to take my book off the movie market place before someone else does,” says McGuire, “and, Clooney has that terrific twinkle in his eye to produce, direct and star in a fast paced film about an, ‘Out of Line,’ character.”

Clooney phone caller number one was fairly convincing, he says, but turned out to be an old schoolmate, “who was just messing with me.”

“In a movie, Clooney would make a better me, than me,” says the wayward McGuire with a chuckle. “And, I'd love to a bit part in it, where I’m sitting next to Clooney at a venerable old DC bar like the Old Ebbitt Grill.”

“McGuire is edgy, nutty, romantic…nimble in his walk and talk…spreading mischievous wisdom around,” says fellow book author and DC area Professor, Anita Nahal.

"Clooney caller number two, sounded like a gentleman from Mumbia,” says McGuire, who was about to hang up on the fellow, “But what if he were a film producer from Bollywood?” McGuire didn’t want to miss an opportunity so he listened for a while, but eventually said good-by when the pitch for yoga classes with Oprah came up.

"Clooney number three had a Russian accent," says McGuire, But with the man's Russian accent I didn't think it was the real George Clooney, so I hung up on him."

On second thought, McGuire now wonders if Clooney number three wasn't the real Clooney, clowning around with a theatrically savvy Slavic accent. "Oh well, there goes my movie––so far–– down the drain, boo hoo!"

In addition to his adventures of chumming it up with heads of state, his truly sky-high–adventure of flying the commercial jet had McGuire saying, “If the passengers knew I was flying the plane they would have said, ‘Let’s Roll’ and would have tossed me out over Spartanburg, South Carolina.”

And, McGuire admits he has no pilot’s license, and having to hang up on the final imposter, McGuire has no Clooney. Yet..he is hopeful!

Washington Post writer, Monica Hesse, who penned a lengthy feature on McGuire in August of 2010, wrote, “McGuire is looking like he should be holding a mint julep, or yachting or doing something else genteel. His face is aristocratic… his manner is intense.”

McGuire's newest and most devilish marketing attempt was trying to get the Evangelical Liberty University to ban his book, but Jerry Falwell was fired and then so called, Pool Boy, " stole Mcguire's media thunder.

Stay tuned!
