     Know all by these presents, that the undersigned hereby constitutes and

          documents necessary or appropriate to obtain codes and passwords
          enabling the undersigned to make electronic filings with the SEC of

          benefit to, in the best interest of, or legally required by, the
          undersigned, it being understood that the documents executed by such
          attorney-in-fact on behalf of the undersigned pursuant to this Power
