Who wants to be a millionaire? I’m guessing most would answer yes, judging by the worldwide appeal of a TV show named after this same question, and asks it of contestants everywhere. Even with inflation and the reduced value of P1 million today versus a year ago, or 5 years ago, P1 million is still a nice round figure to have in your bank account. Financial experts say that earning your first million is the hardest. That’s because most people start with nothing, while it is easier to build more millions after the first. Whatever your age, don’t think that being a millionaire is an impossible goal for you. With the right saving strategy, and a strong discipline to live below your means, you can join the 7 figure club. 8TH WONDER OF THE WORLD Beyond saving and living frugally, there is one more secret to seeing your money grow and work harder for you. No less than Albert Einstein called compound interest the 8th wonder of the world, and explained that “he who … [Read more...] about Road to P1 million: How long does it take to be a millionaire?

Medicine has seen its share of research scandals, but one of the biggest and most brazen ones in recent years has involved the Italian transplant surgeon Paolo Macchiarini. Heralded internationally as a pioneer in regenerative medicine for his experimental work using stem cells to “seed” and create viable artificial tracheas, Macchiarini was eagerly recruited in 2010 by Sweden’s prestigious Karolinska Institute (the same institute that awards the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine). But all was not as it seemed with the institute’s new superstar, as several surgeons working with Macchiarini soon discovered. When they looked closely at the papers Macchiarini had published in medical journals — including a widely publicized one in The Lancet in 2011 — they found that he was omitting or falsifying details about the post-surgery condition of his patients. Indeed, Macchiarini made it sound as if his patients had recovered their health when, in fact, … [Read more...] about Documentary that exposed one of the world’s biggest medical scandals to have its U.S. premiere at the U of M

Hoover Contributor @johnehoover Updated at 12:06 p.m. ET Updated at 12:06 p.m. ET Watch NCAAFNCAA Football with fuboTV Last week marked a historic low for Big 12 Conference scoring output, and might forever stand as the turning point for the league’s offense-over-defense reputation. Five of the eight teams that played in Week 7 failed to score 20 points, and only two teams scored 30. Two teams had an open date, but the 158 total points scored is the Big 12’s fewest ever during a week in which at least half the teams were playing. Who remembers the Big 12’s salad days, when 158 combined points might be the total after a single game? MORE: Sporting News midseason All-Americans OK, that’s a stretch. The league record for a game is 133 — that amazing 70-63 West Virginia victory over Baylor back in 2012. But you get the idea. It’s easy to … [Read more...] about ‘What goes around comes around’: Big 12 defenses finally catching up to offense
Jason Heatley enjoyed a brief, but action-filled AFL career in the late 90s. He played 63 games – almost all of them with St Kilda – and topped the Saints goalkicking twice, including in their grand final year of 1997. I had the opportunity to interview him on his journey to the AFL, his career, and how his life has been since. Lachlan Shaw: Thank you for joining me Jason, it has been muchly appreciated. Jason Heatley: Not a problem. Shaw: You explained to me earlier in the week that you are in the middle of an annual leave break, have you enjoyed your short holiday? Heatley: Yeah it was really good mate. We took the family down to Blairgowrie and just had a bit of ‘R&R’. The kids had a good time and it was a nice break before they go back to school for term four. Shaw: Did you watch this year’s AFL Grand Final? Heatley: Yeah, I certainly did. It was a great game to watch, the pressure was immense. There was disappointment for Collingwood but for the … [Read more...] about An interview with former St Kilda star Jason Heatley
