I am glad I am not at school.... Would hate to be forced to have fitness tests like reported in the BBC news article Call for child fitness tests in schools.

I followed with interest the Shanghai Daily news about the train stuck in the snow in North China's Inner Mongolia Region a few days ago. The 1400 passengers and crew were trapped and had to be rescued. It was only 2008 when I travelled across Trans-Siberia on a photo assignment to visit the Harbin Ice Festival which us very close to where the train got stuck. For me, although it was in the...

I read a review on a new book called "You Need This Book ...: .. to Get What You Want" by Mark Palmer, Scott Solder For myself, I follow these simple steps. - write down WHAT you want - write down WHY you want it - write down WHEN you need to get it - VISUALISE yourself having this - establish what resources (people, tools, funds, knowledge) you need to help you - work on getting those resources...
