    An Agent of Competency As children, many young boys and girls watch sports on television with the hopes of one day being the one who is scoring the game winning touchdown, or shooting the game winning shot at the buzzer, or landing the perfect 10 to bring home the gold. Upon growing up, many of these same children realize only a select few will achieve that goal and must look for other ways to earn a living. One career path that can be taken that allows one to be part of the sport they love is that of a professional sports agent. Professional sports agents are the individuals who represent the interests of the players they represent in all business related activity, such as contract negotiations, personal appearances, legal issues, and product endorsements.

    far from admitting this sin to the society he lives in. Yet guilt plays a major role throughout that eventually engulfs his whole life. While describing the minister’s room, subtle hints are hidden around those four confined walls in order to serve as a reminder of the awful deed he once committed. “The walls were hung round with tapestry, said to be from the Gobelin looms, and, at all events, representing the Scriptural story of David and Bathsheba, and Nathan the Prophet, in colors still…

    A prophet is a person regarded as an inspired teacher, or proclaimer of the will of G-d. “The English word “prophet” comes from Greek and literally means “spokesperson.” This further provides meaning since the prophets were “messengers of G-d”.
