Subject: Crisis in the Horn of Africa

You may have seen the pictures of starving people in the Horn of Africa on your TV screens. We are all asking: how can this be happening again? Parts of Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia are facing one of the worst droughts for 60 years, and around 10 million people are desperately in need of food, clean water and basic sanitation.

Join me in calling on world leaders to save millions of lives - today and tomorrow:

Despite the urgency of the situation, most world leaders are responding too slowly. Immediate aid is essential. Yet at the same time we must not let them drop the ball on long term solutions as has too often happened in the past.

Want a real cholesterol bombshell?

For years we have heard the sermon that cholesterol is divided into two distinct categories: the good (HDL) and the bad (LDL). Turns out it's not true!

The 52 adults aged 60 to 69 who were participants in study at Texas A&M University, published in the Journal of Gerontology, were in pretty good health but weren't very active. As part of the study, the participants engaged in vigorous workouts.

After those workouts, the researchers found something surprising — the people who gained the most muscle mass had the highest levels of "bad" cholesterol. The researchers found the more LDL in your blood, the better your body's ability to build muscle and they concluded that there really isn't any such thing as "bad" cholesterol.

Do You Have High Blood Pressure?

Hypertension sufferers are often prescribed drugs to thin the blood, reduce the blood pressure and some even for cholesterol reduction. These drugs are not without their negative side effects too. Some of the side effects (muscle pain, erectile dysfunction and severe fatigue) are as bad as or worse then those of the hypertension.

The Archives of Internal Medicine published the results of a study that showed only 30% of those under treatment for hypertension were classified as “well controlled”. Despite regular checkups and drugs, the other 70% were still in the danger zone!

Let me say that another way. If you have hypertension and your doctor prescribes drugs, there is a 70% chance they will not work!

And not only is there a 70% chance they won't work, if you have had breast cancer, one class of hypertension drug, ACE inhibitors, will increase your risk of contracting cancer again! Among 1,779 women with early stage breast cancer who were treated and then followed for eight years, the researchers found that women who were taking ACE inhibitors had a shocking 56 per cent increased risk of recurrence of the cancer.

Global Warming Skeptics Handbook

This booklet has captured attention around the world.

Donors have paid for over 160,000 copies so far in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden and soon in Germany. Over 60,000 copies have been downloaded from this site (and countless others from copies on other sites.) Plus volunteers have translated it into German, French, Norwegian, Finnish, Swedish, Turkish, Portuguese, Danish, Japanese, Balkan, Spanish, Thai, Czech, Lao and Italian.

Carbon tax reality


Julia Gillard's Labor and the Greens are going to take us all down with this carbon tax.

We as Australians should protest & protest till we cannot protest any more.

A real scenario bought on by Gillard. A transport company by the name of Nolan's Transport which operates out of Gatton Qld. has been ear marked as one of Gillards 500. This company has been going for 102 years and owns 126 transporters and employs 265 people.

Gillard has targeted this company in one of her 500 guests to pay carbon tax.

Just imagine this scenario, last year this company was told they put out 144,700 tonnes of carbon gas.

So 144,700 tonnes x $23 per tonne = $3,328,100 - yes that's correct, approx. 3.3 million dollars.

Where is the level playing field going to be if companies like this one, and there are several much bigger than Nolan's.

LinFox is another that comes to mind.

Gillard said there would be no extra charges on transport or fuel, what do you call $3.3 million on just one operator.

Any transport company not producing more than 25,000 tonne are not paying anything.

What does it matter if Nolan's go broke or shut down his operation and another 126 transports are put on the road to take up the slack make.

Mr Nolan said in interview that if he put what the company was worth into a bank account he would make ten times as much as he makes now, so where is the justice.

We must as citizens of Australia and tax payers not to mention consumers of goods to keep this nation going must force Gillard's cronies to an election on the issue of Carbon Tax before July next Year.

If we don't this country will be ruined. I have given you one scenario, what about the other 499 companies that will follow.

And we also musn't forget the other smaller companies which will fail because these larger companies either fold or cut back on their work force.

Thought For The Day

Today is the oldest you've been,
yet the youngest you'll be,
so enjoy this day while it lasts!

Keep Learning

I received this newsletter from Bob Bly...

Years ago, a famous rock star - I recall it being either Madonna or Cyndi Lauper - returned to her high school to speak at an assembly.

Although she had not graduated, she told the kids: Stay in school.

"The more you learn, the more you earn," she said.

Nowhere is this truer than in the business world.

Your success is likely to be directly proportional to the amount of knowledge you possess.

Knowledge about your products ... technology ... market ... and your profession - i.e., copywriting, Web site design, engineering.

Yet, even though we live in a knowledge-based economy, most of us graduate school knowing relatively little of what there is to know of the world - or even about our college major.

And with the dizzying pace at which new knowledge is created, the gap between what we know and what there is to know seems to grow exponentially with each passing day.

As Thomas Edison observed, "We don't know one millionth of one percent about anything."

Professor Richard Dawkins said in an interview with Scientific American magazine (7/07, p. 89): "All of us are ignorant of most of what there is to know."

So, with all of us knowing next to nothing ... what can we do to learn - and thereby earn - more?

First, find a niche - an area of specialization - and concentrate your efforts within that niche.

The narrower the area of your specialization, the better your chances of at least keeping reasonably up to date in the field.

Second, become an "information junkie."

Read constantly.

I recommend every person seeking success in some area of business read:

The leading trade magazines in their industry.

A daily newspaper.

A weekly news magazine such as Newsweek, Time, or U.S. News & World Report.

One or two of the top e-newsletters or blogs covering your area of interest.

Third, read widely.

Even though you are a specialist, you need to acquire a solid base of knowledge outside your field.

Of course, your time is limited, so even here, you must choose your course of study carefully.

So what should you read ... and why?

MU, a Ph.D. candidate and consultant in the science of innovation, says that to be more innovative and creative you must read in "adjacent areas."

An adjacent area is something different from but at least peripherally related to your major field.

Example: a systems analyst might read in architecture, because both deal with designing systems (the former a computer application, the latter a building).

Why do you need to read in adjacent areas?

Research shows that the ability to be innovative is dependent onpossessing a wide storehouse of knowledge from which ideas can be generated.

People who are not well read have a limited store of knowledge, and therefore are hampered in their ability to come up with new solutions.

Of course, reading is not the only way to learn. Doing things is equally or in some cases even more valuable as a learning tool.

According to an article in Prevention magazine (10/07, p. 175), new experiences - doing new things -- stimulates production of dopamine, a chemical involved in learning and memory.

In addition, new experiences build brain mass and increase mental agility, while the absence of novelty causes the brain to shrink.

Solution: take up a new language, hobby, sport, musical instrument, or any other activity that offers continual fresh challenges.

When does all this learning stop?


"School is never out for the pro" is old advice and still true today.

You might protest: "But I am too busy putting out fires at work for all this study and learning!"

Then do it after hours.

In his book "212: The Extra Degree," S.L. Parker advises:

"Add a few hours each month to your professional development outside of the work day."

By doing so, you can add the equivalent of a full week of work on your most valuable asset: you.
