Soft power, Feminine Power and Mayan Prophecies

Friday, February 28th, 2014

I have been asked to chair a round table discussion at the World Forum of Cultures to be held in Shanghai June 18th and 19th this year.  The topic is soft power, a topic which ties together much of my recent thinking and exemplifies the relationship between my novels, the Mayan calendar, feminine power, the possibility that the human species may survive to experience the twenty second century, and what changes in human behavior that survival might require.

He has done extremely well day trading lately, as have others with stock investments over the last year. 2013 in fact was the year in which the stock market reached new highs on almost a daily basis.  Gary seems to have the money issue figured out, at least for the present.
