My name is Jeff Alan Meints and I have been writing poetry for over twenty years, since the seventh grade at Hidden Valley Middle School in Escondido, California. This is the fourth book in the series titled, The Road Less Traveled, which are poems written during the years of 2000 to 2016. These were the days of finding love, getting married, opening a small business, acquiring educational degrees later in life, divorce, homelessness and starting all over from scratch. I hope you enjoy this road less traveled.Check out the other poem books in the series, Childlike Ways (1991 - 1996), Youthful Trips (1994 - 1999), and Enter Adulthood (1997 - 2000).
Samuel Carvelus never came home from the logging mill that evening. The rushing river claimed him as its own. His wife Megan and nine year old daughter Shiloh received word there was an accident; Samuel was killed saving the life of Jacob Turner, an eighteen year old boy just starting out in the logging business. No man could have done what Samuel did in saving this young life. He filled his lungs with air, dived into the rushing river, and struggled to dodge the floating timbers. Beneath the timbers he searched savagely for Jacob's body. Numbed by the cold raging river, the fierceness of the current thrust his body forward; his lungs began to crave for air, but dare not surface. He spotted the boy's body dangling from a jagged rock like a rag doll. He aligned himself and allowed the river to force his body toward the boy just as Jacob's shirt tore loose from the rock, Samuel grabbed hold of his arm; he scanned the surface for a break from the rushing logs. Daylight appeared between the rock and the banks. He pushed upward to the surface hanging tight to Jacob's limp body. He shoved the boy up on the embankment, four men hoisted the boy to safety, but it was too late for Samuel, the swiftness of the logs slammed into his back crushing his body while the raging current sucked him under.

China's recent economic reforms have led to impressive growth, and an unprecedented enthusiasm for establishing foreign enterprises in China. Since 1993, China has been the second largest recipient of foreign direct investment in the world after the USA and is now considered to be the world's third biggest economy after the USA and Japan. Its greater economic integration with the rest of the world, especially since its accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO), has further accelerated its market-oriented economic reforms. China is now opening its protected markets and beginning to submit to the rule of international law. This ongoing transition and increasing participation in the world economy has resulted in significant changes in human resource, management and social welfare practices in China's enterprises. The book examines the key areas, all of which are linked, where China is grappling with institutional reforms as it opens up to the outside world - state-owned enterprise reform; capital markets and financial reform; human resources and labor market reform; social welfare reform; and China's accession to the WTO and the growth of the private sector.
