It is World AIDS Week, and we were struck by the story of Ethan Zohn – the $1 million winner of Survivor in the US that pledged his winnings to the prevention of AIDS.  Utilising his soccer skills from his time in Zimbabwe, he started Grassroots Soccer,  a charity that seeks to educate African children in an effort to prevent the spread of HIV/AIDS.  Good on him.  We have made donations to our local organisations, and even if you are finding things tough, every little helps so please give what you can.

Please enjoy this week’s stories, or simply stay here and enjoy the MTLH blog.  We thank you!

The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference.
The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference.
The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference.
And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.  Elie Wiesel

Barack Obama has changed the face of a nation by winning the US Presidential Race, and has already etched his name in history.  The mammoth task ahead of him should not be understated, but the boost of confidence that American’s and global citizens will take from his win should also not be underestimated.  Belief and hope can certainly contribute to positive change, and injections of both right now certainly can’t hurt.

Australian interest rates have been cut, as have those of Britain (by a whopping 1.5%) – clearly showing that there’s very few corners of the Earth that didn’t under-estimate the pace of the global economic slowdown.  And, having just returned from London where consumer sentiment is miserable, we all have a long way to go yet.  Right now, hope is a very attractive asset.

Always look on the bright side and stay as well informed as possible. Knowledge is the best currency right now.  We’re here to bankroll your brain: go the Nov 7 MTLH e-mag or browse through our blog.

A week is a long time in life – the news is good, then it’s bad, the market is up and then it’s down. Our trip around the world over the last couple of weeks has taken us to Philadelphia, New York, Los Angeles, London, Dublin and San Fransisco.  Back in Sydney it’s so clear how small the world is: everywhere the same topics are on people’s lips: the US Presidential Election and the Economy.

Fear of the unknown can often be the most stressful aspect of life, so the best way to manage such fear is to keep as informed as possible.  Hopefully our articles will help, and ultimately ensure that you’re ready to seize an opportunity when it appears.
