Hiring someone you can trust...

Over the last few years a couple of partners and myself have been building a small business that tries to make money using computers to trade in the stock market. Technically, we do black-box prop trading. Its been an uphill climb these past few years, but we are now at the point where we are considering hiring someone. This person will be a programmer/developer that will help with existing projects and help us grow in new directions. We are currently faced with a big dilemma. Whomever we hire will have to be given full access and will be exposed to our trade secrets. This kind of business lends itself to the temptation of impropriety. This person could take what we have and either sell it or assuming they break the barrier to entry use it for themselves. They could probably do this without getting caught as well, with the effect being that our secrets lose their value. [more inside]

OK for him to make female friends at the bar?

A person's self-rated trustworthiness (how trustworthy you think you are) is correlated with their levels of trust (how willing you are to trust others). Where could I have possibly read this? [more inside]

Car Rental and Social Capital: Help!

Looking for source of an anecdote about social capital and trust. It involves renting a car: and apparently, in some developing countries (or possibly rural China?) where there are low levels of trust of outsiders, people at first found even the idea of renting a car implausible because they can't see why you would let a stranger drive away with your car or why you would return the car to a stranger you will never see again.

Lack of Trust in My God in a Box

I would like to sense God in my life. I go to church regularly, pray, and read the Bible to understand Him better but I still have such deep bouts of depression where I either don't trust or sense his presence. There is a wide gap between what I believe with my heart and what I understand in my head. For example, I understand and believe in the sovereignty in God but when hard times come or extremely difficult emotions (despair) arise, that is the first thing I question. I am not looking for an easy life or a perfect life, just one that is able to trust God more. Any opinions on how to do this? I feel a great tension between trying harder, and just letting go but my letting go resembles more closely giving up than "letting God" if you know what i mean. To summarize, I want a stronger faith. Any ideas? Thanks so much for input.

Trust for minor in event of parent's death.

Is there a site where I can see actual trust language regarding a trust that would be created to hold an inheritance for a minor child until age 25. I have been to an attorney....they ask me what I want. I won't know what I want until I see it. There are many details that need to be covered like where the money is invested and how requests for money from the kid's custodian are handled.

Balancing trust with protecting yourself?

If you believe that people are inherently good, and you approach the world with trust — if you might accurately be described as dewy-eyed and idealistic — if you believe that justice occurs and evil is punished — how do you preserve these elements of your personality (trust, innocence, belief in justice) in light of the urge to protect yourself from hurt and attack (emotional shielding)?
