Investments in Environmental Concerns
International investments, global health secrets
and wealth through worldwide business are connected so here are
so more ideas on investing, business and wealth.
There are many economic distortions including
huge debt in the US and Japan, the two main engines of the global
economy. Tensions between Christianity and Islam, continued poverty
in most of the world, a deteriorating environment and growing demand
for the world’s diminishing main supply of energy. No one
knows how this will turn out.
All we can be sure of is that these distortions
will bring change. This depresses many.
But it should not. Change is natural and if we
become agents instead of victims of change we can earn untold fortunes.
Opportunity has never been so good.
A way to profit in business is via tourism. Humanitarian
and environmental concerns create greater tour opportunities than
ever before. Tourism is a lucrative business that helps accelerate
the union of mankind. One wonderful place to organize environmental
tours is Yachana Lodge.
Yachana is run by the same charitable organization
that produces Yachana Organic Jungle Chocolate. “Yachana” means "a
place for learning" in the indigenous Quichua language and
is run by a non-profit foundation whose goal is to protect Ecuador's
rainforest by educating and empowering its people.
The Lodge is nestled on the banks of the Napo
River in the tiny community of Mondaña two hours from Coca
by motorized canoe. It is a unique ecotourism destination that
helps travelers understand the environmental and cultural threats
facing the Amazon region.
The Lodge sits amidst 3000 acres of primary and
secondary rainforest that are home to thousands of species of exotic
plants and animals. Every room provides a stunning view of the
Napo River and comes with a private bathroom complete with hot
showers and safe drinking water. Additionally, the dining room
serves exquisite dishes made from ingredients grown locally.
When you are not relaxing at the Lodge or enjoying
a delectable "jungle" meal, you can experience the magic
of the Ecuadorian Amazon. Yachana's naturalist guides help you
discover how the area's peoples have co-existed with the forest
for centuries, learn how medicinal plants are used, visit a traditional
healer, and explore the lush tropical rainforest.
By organizing tours to Yachana you help preserve
the rainforest. The Lodge provides stable employment and training
to its primarily local staff and serves as an important source
of income for Amazon community development and environmental protection

International Investments in Water
The enormous change in our world offers opportunity
for investors as well. One area of great opportunity is in water
and one of the big areas in this field is helping municipalities
move and clean dirty water.
To this end on November 3rd 2005 we looked at
Technologies, a leader in trench-less water line replacement.
Their Insituform process is the most widely used
trench-less method for restoring structural integrity to and removing
infiltration from sewers with a resin-impregnated tube using robotic
methods to restore active connections from within the line.
Now analysts at Stifel Nicolaus & Company
have upgraded Insituform Technologies Inc (INSU.NASDAQ) to "buy."
They published a research document, raising their
estimates for the company due to increased spending in sewer and
wastewater infrastructure in the U.S. Growth in this area is expected
to rise through 2009.
Sewer rehab accounts for more than 75% of Insituform
Technologies’ revenues. You can learn more at insituform.com

Finally the health tip today is to take care that
changing conditions do not make you depressed! According
to the Report of the Surgeon General on Mental Health "many
episodes of depression are associated with some sort of acute or
chronic adversity". The continual ups and downs of the
markets and economy can confuse and depress many. Yet good health
is the foundation of wealth. Depression can reduce your performance
in business and investing.
Here are seven steps you can take to brighten your mood if the
turmoil of modern life is getting you down.
First, realize that every economic move is filled
with opportunity. Second, exercise more ....preferably in the sun. Third,
eat less junk food, especially soft drinks. Fourth, go to
bed before ten. Fifth, arise before six. (If you are not sleepy
until two, then stay up all night. The next night you will
feel like going to bed early.) Six, turn off the evening
Finally, consider using the Neuro Emotional Techniques
(NET) that have worked with people all over the world to
Stress from acute or chronic adversity comes
from unresolved emotional issues such as such as trauma, guilt,
shame, fear, anger and sadness. The Neuro Emotional Technique eliminates
fears and worries about health, diet and life changes sometimes in minutes.

my life. Terry will conduct a week long detox program this
summer at the farm. See garyascott.com/catalog
