Days of Wine, Roses are Better With Music


The power of music can enhance just about anything, including wine and roses.

Our friend Madeline Frank, PhD, is a world class concert violinist and teacher who uses music in the educational process.

She produces a monthly one-minute radio show that can be heard online. The October session is worth listening to because she has an interview about Giancarlo Cignozzi , a lawyer and musician, who in 1999 purchased a ruined crumbling farm estate with “vines in disrepair” south of Montalcino.

He decided to farm organically to “ensure the best, most natural conditions for making great wine and a part of that process was to play Mozart’s music to his Sangiovese vines.”

Madeline’s blog (1) features how plants can grow stronger, healthier and faster listening to Classical and Baroque Music.

She features a recent article by Christopher Barnes entitled “Does Playing Classical Music to Vines Make for Better Wine?”

She says: In an article by Jeremy Pound, “15 Unusual Uses for Mozart”, from BBC Music Magazine Pound says, “Cignozzi pipes Mozart’s opera over 56 speakers in his vineyards – the grapes ripen in 14 days as opposed to the normal 20 which, we learn, in turn increases the wine’s alcoholic content.”

Professor Stefano Mancuso, a plant neurobiologist at the University of Florence says, “It is not that the grapes are capable of understanding the music and appreciating Mozart. But they are capable of appreciating the sound vibrations and the frequencies.” He says, “The vines are affected by low frequencies between 100 and 400 Hz. The results are somewhat impressive with regard to the quality of the grapes. The most fundamental result is that the number of pathogenic attacks from insects have declined in a significant way.”

Hylton Applebaum, co-owner at DeMorgenzon Winery in South Africa plays, 24 hours a day, Baroque music to his vines. Christopher Barnes says, “Appelbaum is an authority on classical music and has studied its positive effects on natural life forms, including babies in utero and the production of vegetables and cow’s milk.”

The abstract of a research report at the Journal of Environmental Science entitled “Effect of Different Types of Music on Rosa Chinensis” (2) says:  Music influences the growth of plants and can either promote or restrict the growth of plants (depending on
the type of music being played). The present experiment is aimed to study the effect of music on 30 Rose (Rosa chinensis)
plants taken in separate pots.

The research compared the growth of roses subject respectively to Vedic Chants, Vedic Classical Music, Western Classical Music, Rock music and silence.  The plants grown while subjected to the chants and classical music grew larger and had more flowers than those grown in silence.  Roses with rock music grew the smallest and had the fewest flowers.

Hemingway’s Secret

 

Here’s a great Christmas gift idea.  You can give Hemingway’s secret of success.

hemmingway

Was Ernest Hemingway’s secret to success being able to write in English or Spanish?  

‪There may have been many reasons why Hemingway liked Cuba but he already had access to most of them in Key West.  Why go the extra 104.91 miles to Cuba?

Perhaps he knew that speaking a second language makes you smarter.  Perhaps he realized that he could think and write better in English when one learns Spanish.   In 1939 he moved to Cuba and wrote “For Whom the Bell Tolls” which  became a Book-of-the-Month Club choice.  The book sold half a million copies almost instantly, was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, and cemented Hemingway’s reputation as one of the great writers in the English language… at a time when he was speaking two languages.

You can be be smarter and incidentally… provide a Christmas gift and save $178.90 in the process.

This offer makes a great Christmas gift.  I’ll explain how in a moment.

You might ask… “What the heck does speaking Spanish have to do with being more successful.

Well… to start, being smarter means you gain greater intellect.  You can be smarter with Super Thinking.   Super Thinking tactics integrate brain waves so absorption, retention and recollection of  information improve… a lot.   Most important of all, Super Thinking helps you synthesize what you learn so you can connect dots and use the knowledge you gain to achieve your goals.

In short, Super Thinking makes you smarter.. a lot!

Super Thinking is not a gimmick nor a trick.At least three best selling books, Superlearning, the Mozart Effect and Superlearning 2000 have revealed insights about how we can learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.  Merri was among those few who learned how and is licensed to teach the Lozanov system.  She has organized a practical course on how to learn faster and better.  With her modified system, you discover how to think more powerfully in just three days…and experience the wonders of superlearning.

When I figured this out, my first thought was… “Why not help readers learn Super Thinking AND Spanish?”  There and then was a two for one deal.

Enroll for our Online Super Spanish Course and you gain a the Super Thinking Workshop for Greater Intelligence workshop (a $49.95 value) FREE.

We will also deliver both the Spanish course and the workshop to someone of your choice by email on Christmas morning or Christmas Eve.

You save $178.90 total!

Still you ask… “Why Spanish for greater intellect and success?

Spanish is the second most spoken romantic language.  Chances are a huge Spanish speaking population lives near you.  Speaking Spanish can be helpful in innumerable ways just from this fact.

There is more.  Learning a second language makes you smarter and healthier.

Image from Telegraph article “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism”. (2)

The Telegraph article (linked below) entitled “Why learn a foreign language? Benefits of bilingualism says (bolds are mine):  Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for travelling. It will make you smarter, more decisive and even better at English, says Anne Merritt.

Physiological studies have found that speaking two or more languages is a great asset to the cognitive process. The brains of bilingual people operate differently than single language speakers, and these differences offer several mental benefits.

You can read the entire article at the link below but to sum it up it shows seven ways that learning a second language improves your intellect and health:

* You build multitasking skills

* You stave off Alzheimer’s and dementia

* Your memory improves

* You become more perceptive

* You become smarter

* Your decision-making skills improve

* You improve your English

A better command of English… used by a smarter, more perceptive person who can remember details and multi task.

With this. I rest Hemingway’s case.

Learn the power of Super Thinking.  Gain the seven benefits of being bilingual.

The Super Thinking Workshop can help you join the top 3 percent of intelligent people in the world.

Be happier as you become smarter.

A study of 10,000 British people studied the pure relationship between intelligence and happiness stability.

IQ can predict the emotional ups and downs of life.   The research found that the lower the IQ,  the higher the ups and downs in life satisfaction.  The differences were not due to education, income, or jobs either, but simply IQ.

Become smarter, healthier, happier… in just weeks… hearing  a relaxation session that takes you into your secret rose garden.

Merri, David and I originally developed this session for our Super Thinking courses and have set it into an online workshop for you.

Listen… just 18 minutes day.  We guarantee your life will be better.

Inflate Your IQ.

When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.

That’s bad for you.

When it comes to intelligence… inflating is smart… fair… good for you and it’s good for the rest of the world.

Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.

What cost a dollar in 1965 can easily cost $15 now.

They promise you more.

Liars?

They devalue the currency so you get more dollars that buy less.  They can rip off your salary,  your pension…raise insurance, almost everything.

And they make you work harder… longer… for less.

Whittle, whittle, whittle.  Push, push, push.  That’s what monetary inflation does to you.

Fight back… overcome the inflation trick.  Inflate your IQ as you relax.

Gain more than IQ.

Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier.

That’s the way to get ahead!

Create more income opportunity.  Improve your health.  Be naturally smarter… use Super Thinking.

You can improve your IQ in just weeks.

You might well ask… How is this possible?

Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.

A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(3)  show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brain.  The article says:

           Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it.

Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.

Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows.

British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later.  9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.

The study published in Nature said that on a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age. 

MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kid’s skills.

There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes.  New tasks stimulate the brain most.  Young adults given just one month of intense training in juggling, found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began.

Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of musical training and new experiences throughout a lifetime.

Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life.  Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points.

 Improve the brain through music… without lessons.

Here’s the Super Thinking story…

The educational program Merri and I developed uses a form of brain wave integration that increases IQ.

Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  The music creates the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

This Super Thinking program is not a gimmick or trick… just advanced education.

Certain types of Baroque music are the base, and they make you smarter!

Proof?

At least four best selling books, “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”,  “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ showed how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

This Baroque music tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons.  An innovative method, the Lozanov Learning System, is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programmers and operators of automated equipment.

Merri was among just a few who learned this technique directly from Dr. Lozanov the time he visited the USA.

Our Super Thinking workshop enhanced this system with numerous other tactics.

We added slight alterations in nutrition that create a higher IQ.   Altered nutritional tips in Super Thinking can make anyone 25% smarter!

Baroque Music and nutrition are just part of seven, easy to use, learning techniques that make you smarter.

Gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…in less time…two-to-five times faster.

Here’s a huge bonus.  Super Thinking also relieves stress.  Super Thinking is fun.

You can use a Super Thinking focus in everything:  health… earning… education… investing.

Super Thinking works on the learner first…the data second.  This system “grows the learner” rather than the information.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is create a six inch IQ pipe!

Share our years of experience.

For nearly 50 years, Merri and I have conducted hundreds of courses and tours for tens of thousands, in dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).  Our Super Thinking Workshop has been one of the most profound.  Now the workshop is even better online because it condenses Super Thinking so you can increase your IQ, at home… right away.

The workshop shows how these mind expanding tactics can be applied to starting and running a business for extra income, to forex trading and investing.  Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit.  Our Super Thinking plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to rapidly get smarter in every part of your life.

For example, real estate broker, Suzy Kurinsky took the workshop to help her learn Spanish.

She wrote: “You are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range.  My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!”

Super thinking can improve almost anything you do… faster, better, more fun and with less stress.

Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.

 Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish!  I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you.   I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.

Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes.  I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra.  I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life.  I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.

Super Thinking can help improve your health. Super Thinking can make you rich and add richness to your life.

However the time, travel expense and workshop cost (delegates have paid up to $999) have prohibited many from getting this benefit.

That’s why we have created the workshop in electronic form.  Get Super Thinking online for less than fifty bucks.

Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.

The workshop is divided into two parts.  Part one is the application… the sessions that tell you exactly what to do, what music to use and even includes two recorded sessions based around a secret rose garden that you can use.  We have kept this portion short and simple so you can easily start immediately.

Part two is a longer portion on theory.

Part one is enough.

Super Thinking is like jogging… giving results if you simply do it!

You do not have to know why Super Thinking works to increase your IQ.   But Part Two explains why you are getting the good results from Part One, if you want to know.

You might ask…”Will it work for me”?

The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.

Our guarantee.

I guarantee it.  Order the Spanish course and Super Thinking Workshop.  Use it them two months past Christmas.  If you are not totally satisfied… in any way, during that time, simply let me know and I’ll send a full refund… immediately… no questions asked.

Another Super Thinking workshop attendee wrote: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me,  I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible”.   I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted.  I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow.   Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!

The Business of Natural Health


Business Ideas in Ecuador

gary-scott-microbusiness-idea

Does this look like work?  We rode down to this…

gary-scott-microbusiness-idea

train station and were met by these lively people.  This is a great benefit of the tour business… so much fun… so many things to see.

One can blend tours and natural health and great lifestyle as well.

This is why Jean Marie Butterlin who heads Ateam Ecuador offers agricultural and export tours.

Here is a report on natural health product business potential in Ecuador.

In Ecuador, we live in a country that has some exceptionally good soil, unique weather condition and that is rich in many medicinal plants and herbs.

If you have a passion you will eventually come across some unusual and unique products to sell. There are 2 qualities you need to look for in these potential  winner products :

A)   exclusivity or patent : you do not want competition

B)   give VALUE to your customer.  This makes them repeat customers. Value is a very interesting concept.  You have to market your product and demonstrate that it is 10 times more valuable than its price!

C)   The BIG secret of online business is…….THE E-MAIL LIST.   Create an online list of e mails that share the same passion.  I suggest that you study David Cross’ course on this website, on how to setup a business online and create that list.  He explains the power of a focused e-mail list combined with an auto-responder which becomes the most valuable asset you can create and which will make money over and over for you.

D)   If you cannot find a product, create one by writing an e-book that gives VALUE to your customer.  You need to solve a problem! Others will have the same problem:   See Gary & Merri’s Writers Camp.

As you know, one of my passions is Natural Health. I spend at least a couple of hours every day learning about my passion.  Every now and then, I come across some “jewels”!  Because of my 35 years of  experience, I can see very quickly opportunities by blending products and markets.

Here is one recent example: I travel a lot (another passion that is paid by the natural health/anti-aging passion).  During a dinner with a doctor-friend in Paris, he showed me his latest discovery : a product in a small 10cc bottle (10 bottles per box) that contains both a solid extract in the patented cap and a liquid in the bottle itself.

gary-scott-microbusiness-idea

This patented spirulina product is 7,000 more concentrated than spirulina (contains phycocyanin) and is more efficient than spirulina because you mix at the last minute the dried extract (in the cap) and highly concentrated liquid extract, using a patented cap, which releases the dried extract in the liquid just before drinking it. The combination of the two is what makes it so potent!

gary-scott-microbusiness-idea

In my field everyone knows very well what spirulina does for you….my friend has marketed the product just to naturopaths in Europe for now, just saying “7,000 times more powerful than spirulina”.  The production lab had to increase 6 fold its output within 8 months to fill out orders. (Today they are constantly still back ordered).

The first thing I did, was to try the product myself and then secure the rights to North and South America.  I have already a network in the US and I will setup via the internet a network in South America, with Quito as the main distribution center.

Ecuador also possesses a coast where we can grow the algae that produces the phycocyanin. When the market needs it, we can start producing locally for the whole SA continent.

This product has 3 unique qualities:

–       easy to market because it can be attached to an existing concept, spirulina.  You do not have to make any “claims” as the natural health people already know about what spirulina does!  They just need to translate this 7,000 times more powerful and the work is done!

–       patented and exclusive and super efficient = no competition

–       90% of customer re-orders and they keep taking it.

 I will make a few videos talking about the product (without having to be making any health claims) and create a specific list of prospects and customers in North and South America (in English, Spanish and Portuguese).

The product will only be available at the end of 2012 in the US and SA but you have to start building your list early to draw the interest. You can use a blog to keep the interest going and keep your prospect alive reminding them that they can pre-order and be put on a waiting list. All this makes your product valuable that way also.

Write about your passion and your products on your website or blog.  Tell stories….remember always : “It’s the story that sells!”

Another concept that has been taking over Europe in the last years is the plant/herbal stem cell called “gemmotheray”.  The idea is very simple:

A genius scientist, Dr. Pol Henry, in Belgium found out that the buds of a specific plant had some very interesting properties totally different from the full grown leaves or fruits or roots.

They had incredible qualities.  The part of the plant he used was the stem cells of the plant.  One of my doctor/partner/friends had the chance to work with Pol Henry and he received all his valuable research before he passed. That research has never been published.

One of the big problems in plant stem cells is harvesting, as you get only a very small window every year to harvest the buds. These buds have to be harvested early in the morning to keep the condensed water (the energy/information) and must be put into a solvant immediately.  Every harvester has a 1 gallon container where he immerses the buds just after picking, this keeps all active ingredients “alive”.

The product is therefore never dried and the extraction takes place after a 3 to 8 weeks maceration process in a 3 phase extraction: water-alcohol-glycerine. Each solvant will extract specific ingredients.

One can only imagine the type of actions some of those stem cell plant possess.

We have created a whole line of unique combination of plants for some specific purposes. These products will be available very soon in fall 2012.

These products have also 3 qualities:

–       although not patentable, they are extremely hard to manufacture as you need the knowledge (kept confidential), the land to grow organically the plants and the manufacturing to extract it. So almost no competition.

–       the plants are well known so you just need to tell what is different and better and why.

–       the product gives good value as it sold at roughly the same price as standart plant extract.

Another area where Ecuador has the edge is the production of  organically grown medicinal spices like turmeric, ginger. etc.  There is a French herbalist in Puyo that produces these spices on a small farm and he sells it in Ecuador and a little bit abroad. The production cost in Ecuador is better than in most other areas if you know how to produce it without pesticides and chemical fertilizers. The key word of course “organic”.

During our agri expeditions we only work on farms that are converted into organic.  In fact we have found out that it is cheaper to grow organic than with conventional methods in Ecuador.

The Essential Oil Lady is Back


The essential oil lady is back… even stronger. This creates savings shown below.

During the summer I use essential oils to keep cool.

The essences of flowers and plants have been used in holistic healing traditions such as ayurveda for centuries. The sense of smell is the fastest acting, most powerful means of creating balance.

I use Lavender mist and a blend of Ylang Ylang, Lavender and peppermint.  They are perfect for me when feeling hot and bothered, or when temperatures are when its soaring outside.

I was concerned about my supply. Our friend Candace Newman who had supplied us with our essential oils for years had retired… I thought.

candace-essential-oils

Candace Newman… the Essential Oil Lady with Merri and me and an Ecuadorian Taita Yatchak at a fire ceremony at our North Carolina farm.

One of the ways I maintain my health and vitality balance is with essential oils. I use them almost every morning and evening.

For years Candace traveled with Merri and me to Ecuador and visited us at our North Carolina farm to study shamans and their use of these oils… known as aqua flora.

So we purchased all our oils from her and were a bit worried when last fall she announced her retirement.

Merri and I really stocked up at that time and were wondering what we would do when we ran out.

All of Candace’s formulas are handmade in the forest and mountains of Colorado, USA.  Her proprietary formulas were developed over the past 18 years of her Aromatherapy private practice.  The benefits for us have been many-fold so we and and other of her clients wanted to continue purchasing them because the the products had passed the test of time.  Her pure essential oils are gathered from around the world and are of the highest quality to insure their medicinal properties.

She uses no synthetic fragrances. Her blends are of the highest quality ingredients and her  formulas include base ingredients such as Organic Golden Jojoba, aloe and vegetable glycerin.

We wondered who would supply us as we had complete faith in Candace’s knowledge, reliability and  integrity to provide the purest of oils.

This is why I am so pleased to announce that Candace… the Oil Lady…is back in business.

After a sabbatical last winter, Candace recently wrote:  We offer you the benefits of these wonderful products to assist you in creating a continual increase in your total sense of well being. They are for external use and are a profound part of any wellness program.

There comes a time in life’s processes where in order to move forward, often one needs to stop, evaluate, make a course correction and move on. So our course correction is to go back to the company’s original name, and refine our formulas & product line to what the test of time & our customers’ purchases have shown us are most valuable.

We are delighted and have already ordered some more of her products as gifts.  All we give our children and family for birthdays, Christmas and such are flowers, massages and essential oils from Candace.

Candace has also improved and simplified her formulas. She wrote:

Many of you know our OLA Seven Massage Blends that were the result on my private practice. The past several years have shown us that perhaps we could serve you better with fewer blends.

In the name of “simple” … so we can help people receive the benefits of genuine essential oils blends with fewer bottles, we “distilled” our previous OLA 7 massage blends down to the NEW OLA Four Blends. These are blends with the purest of essential oils from around the world in 100% Organic Golden Jojoba. They are at a safe percentage for body and face massage, wonderful bath oils, and after shower blends. Each of the OLA Four Massage Blends has its own special “medicine and message”, and there will be times where each  one is just what we need at that time. The color chart gives the contents of each blend and lists their properties for use. They are as follows:

Soother:     Cedarwood, Geranium, Patchouli, Orange, Ylang Ylang

Balancer:     Lavender, Orange, Peppermint, Roman Chamomile,

Stimulator: Eucalyptus, Cypress, Lemon, Lavender, Rosemary

Comforter: Lavender, Rose otto, Frankincense

Each of these four blends is available individually in a healing cobalt glass bottle with pump top for home or office.

Or there is the quarter size sampler pack.  This is what Merri and I travel with.

How We Can Serve You

How to Have Real Safety

garyheadshot

There are only three reasons why we should invest.  We invest for income.  We invest to resell our investments for more than we had invested.  We invest to make our world a better place.

We should not invest for fun, excitement or to get rich quick, or in a panic due to market corrections.

This is why the core Pi model portfolio (that forms the bulk of my own equity portfolio) consists of 19 shares and this position has not changed in over two years.  During these two years we have been steadily accumulating the same 19 shares and have not traded once.

The portfolio has done well in 2017, up 22.6%, better than the DJI Index.

However one or even two year’s performance is not enough data to create a safe strategy.

The good value portfolio above is based entirely on good value financial information and mathematically based safety programs developed around models that date back 91 and 24 years.

The Pifolio is a theoretical portfolio of MSCI Country Benchmark Index ETFs that cover all the good value markets developed combining my 50 years of investing experience with study of the mathematical market value analysis of Keppler Asset Management and the mathematical trend analysis of Tradestops.com.

In my opinion, Keppler is one of the best market statisticians in the world.  Numerous very large fund managers, such as State Street Global Advisers, use his analysis to manage over $2.5 billion of funds.

The Pifolio analysis begins with Keppler who continually researches international major stock markets and compares their value based on current book to price, cash flow to price, earnings to price, average dividend yield, return on equity and cash flow return.  He compares each major stock market’s history.

This is an easy, simple and effective approach to zeroing in on value because little time, management and guesswork is required.  You are investing in a diversified portfolio of good value indices.

A BUY rating for an index does NOT imply that any stock in that country is an attractive investment, so you do not have to spend hours of research aimed at picking specific shares.  It is not appropriate or enough to instruct a stockbroker to simply select stocks in the BUY rated countries.  Investing in the index is like investing in all the shares in the index.  You save time because all you have to do is invest in the ETF to gain the profit potential of the entire market.

To achieve this goal of diversification the Pifolio consists of Country Index ETFs.

Country Index ETFs are similar to an index mutual fund but are shares normally traded on a major stock exchange that tracks an index of shares in a specific country.  ETFs do not try to beat the index they represent.  The management is passive and tries to emulate the performance of the index.

A country ETF provides diversification into a basket of equities in the country covered.  The expense ratios for most ETFs are lower than those of the average mutual fund as well so such ETFs provide diversification and cost efficiency.

Here is the Pifolio I personally use.

70% is diversified into Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) developed markets: Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Japan, Norway, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

30% of the Pifolio is invested in Keppler’s good value (BUY rated) emerging markets: Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, the Czech Republic, South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan.

The Pifolio consists of iShares ETFs that invested in each of the MSCI indicies of the good value BUY markets.

For example, the iShares MSCI Australia (symbol EWA) is a Country Index ETF that tracks the investment results the Morgan Stanley Capital Index MSCI Australia Index which is composed mainly of large cap and small cap stocks traded primarily on the Australian Stock Exchange mainly of companies in consumer staples, financials and materials. This ETF is non-diversified outside of Australia.

iShares is owned by Black Rock, Inc. the world’s largest asset manager with over $4 trillion in assets under management.

Pi uses math to reveal the best value markets then protects its positions using more math created by Richard Smith founder and CEO of Tradestops.com to track each share’s trend.

We use Smith’s  algorithms that calculate momentum of the good value markets.

dr richard smith

The Stock State Indicators at Tradestops.com act as a full life-cycle measure that indicates the health of each stock. They are designed to tell you at a glance exactly where any stock stands relative to Dr. Smith’s proprietary algorithms.

Kepppler’s analysis shows the value of markets.  The SSI signal indicates the current trend of each stock (performing well, or in a period of correction, or stopped out).

The SSI tells you one of five things:

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 6.51.59 AM

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 6.52.12 AM

Screen Shot 2017-08-08 at 6.52.22 AM

Akey component of the Stock State Indicator (SSI) system is momentum based on the latest 521 days of trading.  A stock changes from red to green in the SSI system only after it has already gone up a healthy amount and has started a solid uptrend.

How SSI Alerts Are Triggered

If the position has already moved more than its Volatility Quotient below a recent high, the SSI Stop Loss will trigger.  This is an indicator that the position has corrected more than what is normal for this stock.  It means to take caution.

Below is an example of how SSIs work.  This example shows the Developed Market Pifolio that we track at Tradestops.com.

tradestops

Equal Weight Good Value Developed Market Pifolio.

At the time this example was copied, all the ETFs in the Developed Market Pifolio (above) currently had a green SSI.

We do not know when the US market will fall.  We only do know that it will.  We also do not know if, when the US market corrects, global markets will follow or rise instead.

The fact that the Pifilios are invested in good value markets reduces long term risk.

Additional protection is added by using trailing stops based on the 521 day momentum of each stock in the Pifolio.

Take for example the graph below from our Tradestops account that shows the iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF.  This ETF had a green SSI and a Volatility Index (VQ) of 13.26%.  This means the share can move 13.26% before there is a trend shift.

tradestops

iShares MSCI United Kingdom ETF (Symbol EWU)

Pi purchased the share at$31.26 and in this example the share was $34.43 and rising.  Tradestop’s algorithms suggested that if the price drops to $31.69 its momentum would have stopped and it would have shifted into trading sideways.   The stop loss price is currently $29.86.  If EWU continues to rise, both the yellow warning and the stop loss price will rise as well.

When the US stock market bull ends, know one knows for sure how long or how severe the correction will be.

When the bear arrives, what will happen to global and especially good value markets?

No  one knows the answer to this question.

What we do know is that the equally weighted, good value market Pifolios have the greatest potential long term and that math based trailing stops can be used to protect against a secular global stock market correction when it comes.

My fifty years of global investing experience helps take advantage of numerous long term cycles that are part of the universal math that affects all investments.

What you get when you subscribe to Pi.

You immediately receive a 120 page basic training course that teaches the Pi Strategy.   You learn all the Pi strategies, what they are, how to use them and what each can do for you, your lifestyle and investing.

You also begin receiving regular emailed Pifiolio updates and online access to all the Pifolio updates of the last two years.  Each update examines the current activity in a Pifolio, how it is changing, why and how the changes might help your investing or not.

Included in the basic training is an additional 120 page PDF value analysis of 46 stock markets (23 developed markets and 23 emerging stock markets).  This analysis looks at the price to book, price to earnings, average yield and much more.

You also receive two special reports.

In the 1980s, a remarkable set of two economic circumstances helped anyone who spotted them become remarkably rich.  Some of my readers made enough to retire.  Others picked up 50% currency gains.  Then the cycle ended.  Warren Buffett explained the importance of this ending in a 1999 Fortune magazine interview.  He said:  Let me summarize what I’ve been saying about the stock market: I think it’s very hard to come up with a persuasive case that equities will over the next 17 years perform anything like—anything like—they’ve performed in the past 17!

I did well then, but always thought, “I should have invested more!”  Now those circumstances have come together and I am investing in them again.

The circumstances that created fortunes 30 years ago were an overvalued US market (compared to global markets) and an overvalued US dollar.  The two conditions are in place again!

30 years ago, the US dollar rose along with Wall Street.  Profits came quickly over three years.  Then the dollar dropped like a stone, by 51%  in just two years.  A repeat of this pattern is growing and could create up to 50% extra profit if we start using strong dollars to accumulate good value stock market ETFs in other currencies.

This is the most exciting opportunity I have seen since we started sending our reports on international investing ideas more than three decades ago.  The trends are so clear that I have created a short, but powerful report “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More.”   This report shows how to earn an extra 50% from currency shifts with even small investments.  I kept the report short and simple, but included links to 153 pages of  Good Value Stock Market research and Asset Allocation Analysis.

The report shows 20 good value investments and a really powerful tactic that shows the most effective and least expensive way to accumulate these bargains in large or even very small amounts (less than $5,000).  There is extra profit potential of at least 50% so the report is worth a lot.

This report sells for $29.95 but in this special offer, you receive the report, “Three Currency Patterns for 50% Profits or More” FREE when you subscribe to Pi.

Plus get the $39.95 report “The Platinum Dip 2018” free.

With investors watching global stock markets bounce up and down, many missed two really important profit generating events over the last two years.  The price of silver dipped below $14 an ounce as did shares of the iShares Silver ETF (SLV).   The second event is that the silver gold ratio hit 80, compared to a ratio of 230 only two years before.

In September 2015, I prepared a special report “Silver Dip 2015” about a silver speculation, leveraged with a British pound loan, that could increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.  The tactics described in that report generated 62.48% profit in just nine months.

I have updated this report and added how to use the Dip Strategy with platinum.   The “Platinum Dip 2018” report shares the latest in a series of long term lessons gained through 40 years of speculating and investing in precious metals.  I released the 2015 report, when the gold silver ratio slipped to 80.  The ratio has corrected and that profit has been taken and now a new precious metals dip has emerged.

I have prepared a new special report “Platinum Dip 2018” about a leveraged speculation that can increase the returns in a safe portfolio by as much as eight times.

You also learn from the Value Investing Seminar, our premier course, that we have been conducting for over 30 years.  Tens of thousands of delegates have paid up to $999 to attend.  Now you can join the seminar online FREE in this special offer.

This three day course is available in sessions that are 10 to 20 minutes long for easy, convenient learning.   You can listen to each session any time and as often as you desire.

The sooner you hear what I have to say about current markets, the better you’ll be able to cash in on perhaps the best investing opportunity since 1982.

seminars

Tens of thousands have paid up to $999 to attend.

In 2018 I celebrate my 52nd anniversary in the investing business and 50th year of writing about global investing.  Our reports and seminars have helped readers have better lives, with less stress yet make fortunes during up and down markets for decades.  This information is invaluable to investors large and small because even small amounts can easily be invested in the good value shares we cover in our seminar.

Stock and currency markets are cyclical.  These cycles create extra profit for value investors who invest when everyone else has the markets wrong.  One special seminar session looks at how to spot value from cycles.  Stocks rise from the cycle of war, productivity and demographics.  Cycles create recurring profits.  Economies and stock markets cycle up and down around every 15 to 20 years as shown in this graph.

stock-Charts

The effect of war cycles on the US Stock Market since 1906.

Bull and bear cycles are based on cycles of human interaction, war, technology and productivity.  Economic downturns can create war.

The chart above shows the war – stock market cycle.  Military struggles (like the Civil War, WWI, WWII and the Cold War: WW III) super charge inventiveness that creates new forms of productivity…the steam engine, the internal combustion engine,  production line processes, jet engines, TV, farming techniques, plastics, telephone, computer and lastly during the Cold War, the internet.  The military technology shifts to domestic use.  A boom is created that leads to excess.  Excess leads to correction. Correction creates an economic downturn and again to war.

Details in the online seminar include:

* How to easily buy global currencies, shares and bonds.

* Trading down and the benefits of investing in real estate in Small Town USA.  We will share why this breakout value is special and why we have been recommending good value real estate in this area since 2009.

* What’s up with gold and silver?  One session looks at my current position on gold and silver and asset protection.  We review the state of the precious metal markets and potential problems ahead for US dollars.  Learn how low interest rates eliminate  opportunity costs of diversification in precious metals and foreign currencies.

* How to improve safety and increase profit with leverage and staying power.  The seminar reveals Warren Buffett’s value investing strategy from research published at Yale University’s website.  This research shows that the stocks Buffet chooses are safe (with low beta and low volatility), cheap (value stocks with low price-to-book ratios), and high quality (stocks of companies that are profitable, stable, growing, and with high payout ratios). His big, extra profits come from leverage and staying power.  At times Buffet’s portfolio, as all value portfolios, has fallen, but he has been willing and able to wait long periods for the value to reveal itself and prices to recover.

keppler asset management chart

This chart based on a 45 year portfolio study shows that holding a diversified good value portfolio (based on a  good value strategy) for 13 month’s time, increases the probability of out performance to 70%.  However those who can hold the portfolio for five years gain a 88% probability of beating the bellwether in the market and after ten years the probability increases to 97.5%.

Time is your friend when you use a good value strategy.  The longer you can hold onto a well balanced good value portfolio, the better the odds of outstanding success.

Learn how much leverage to use.  Leverage is like medicine, the key is dose.  The best ratio is normally 1.6 to 1.  We’ll sum up the strategy; how to leverage cheap, safe, quality stocks and for what period of time based on the times and each individual’s circumstances.

Learn to plan in a way so you never run out of money.  The seminar also has a session on the importance of having and sticking to a plan.  See how success is dependent on conviction, wherewithal, and skill to operate with leverage and significant risk.  Learn a three point strategy based on my 50 years of investing experience combined with wisdom gained from some of the world’s best investment managers and economic mathematical scientists.

The online seminar also reveals  the results of a $80,000 share purchase cost test that found the least expensive way to invest in good value.  The keys to this portfolio are good value, low cost, minimal fuss and bother.  Plus a great savings of time.  Trading is minimal, usually not more than one or two shares are bought or sold in a year.  I wanted to find the very least expensive way to create and hold this portfolio so I performed this test.

I have good news about the cost of the seminar as well.   For almost three decades the seminar fee has been $799 for one or $999 for a couple. Tens of thousands paid this price, but online the seminar is $297.

Last Chance Essential Oils


We sadly received the note below about last chance essential oils from our friends John and Candace Newman.

Candace spent many years traveling with us and the yatchaks in Ecuador.

Merri and I always use Candace’s oils because she gained so much wisdom on these trips and through her lifetime global studies.

So we were saddened to read this note: Gary & Merri, our oil sales will close October 15, 2009.

After 18 years, the decision to stop selling our Aromatherapy oil products has not been made lightly.  After much evaluation & contemplation, we believe it is the right thing to do. On October 15th, the retail and wholesale shopping carts will close. Our oils & formulas are 10% off from now until October 15th … or until the supply runs out.

We know many of you use our oils & formulas daily. This discount helps you stock up on the ones you love, and is our “early” Christmas and Holiday Sale we normally run in November.  With proper care our products last well over a year.

See August’s newsletter about proper care.

I’m continuing my free monthly Newsletter to keep you informed of classes, education and company changes; the subscription to my Aromatherapy Guides for those who want continuing education; Consultations and Treatments; and more Classes. My Classes on DVD’s and The Good Medicine Tin® will continue to be available to purchase by fax, email or phone.

John will continue to be our webmaster and will pursue some of his other special interests dear to his heart.

Aromatherapy and essential oils are one of the many soulful elements that truly make a difference in people’s lives and health around the world.  We appreciate you and are grateful for your continued support and loyalty over the past 20 years of my work with essential oils.

Our Best to You,
Candace and John Newman

I have personally loaded up with a year’s supply of  Rose Otto, Lavender, Geranium, Lemon, and Orange the oils that I use the most.

You can get more information on the oils they have left in inventory here.

Lavender 10 ml

Peppermint 10 ml

Eucalyptus 10 ml

Orange 10 ml

Frankincense 10 ml

Candace also still has some essential oil mists that offer a gentle Aroma therapeutic wash that can have immediate and profound benefits, calming the mind, balancing the emotions, nurturing the skin, cleansing the body and surrounding environment.

Merri and I especially use essential oil mists when we travel or are in public places. On the plane they freshen and purify the stale airline environment. We also use them to relieve the heat of the summer.

Essential oil mists also make great stress-free gifts.  They are always in our Christmas and birthday mix.

Candace is offering a sample of four 1 oz essential oil mist blends each in amber plastic bottle with zipper carrying case with the discount.    An Essential Oil Mist Chart is included free.

It contains:

* Lavender Mist
* Lavender-Peppermint Mist
* Lavender-Rose Mist
* Rejuvenation Mist

The Lavender Mist contains aloe vera, pure water, vegetable glycerin and pure Lavender essential oil. This mist cleanses and hydrates the face, calms the mind and body tissue, balances the emotions.  It is excellent for sunburn, itching or rashes.

Lavender-Peppermint Mist contains aloe vera, pure water, vegetable glycerin, Lavender and Peppermint pure essential oils. This mist is uplifting and refreshing. It comforts and soothes the emotions and provides a feeling of  “menthol lift” lightness.  Keep one in refrigerator for a cool refreshing mist.  Use whenever feeling sluggish, anxious, or out of balance.

Frequency and Health


Frequency and health are connected.

One way of looking at everything is as a collage of frequencies.

Good health is the body operating as a bundle of correct, natural frequencies.

A recent message for example looked at how the frequency of music can integrate the brain hemispheres and accelerate super thinking.

The process is also good for health.  That same article for example showed how healers globally use the frequency emitted from the conch shell because the form of these shells represent the Golden Mean.

In mathematics and the arts, the golden mean is the ratio of expansion in nature when all frequencies are in harmony. This mathematical constant is about 1.618033.

In other words each ring of a conch shell (that has grown in harmony) is about 1.6 larger than the last.

Non stressed flowers unfold on the Golden Mean.

Adolf Zeising, a mathematician and philosopher, found the Golden Mean expressed in the arrangement of branches along the stems of plants and of veins in leaves. Animal skeletons, the branches of veins and nerves expand on the Golden Mean.  The Golden Mean rules the proportions of chemical compounds and the geometry of crystals.   The Golden Mean is a universal law as Zeising wrote, “the ground-principle of all formative striving for beauty and completeness in the realms of both nature and art, and which permeates, as a paramount spiritual ideal, all structures, forms and proportions, whether cosmic or individual, organic or inorganic, acoustic or optical; which finds its fullest realization, however, in the human form.”

So hearing the Golden Mean in music or sound helps balance our being.

We built our North Carolina farmhouse on the Golden Mean… a rectangle 1 wide by 1.6 long.

golden-mean

We can gain balancing frequencies in other ways such as through nutrition.

Ecuador-shamans

Ecuador shamans use conch shells, tobacco smoke, floral water, herbs, chants, music and dance to balance frequencies.

For example Theanine (chemical name: r-glutamylethylamide), one of the chemicals found in green tea, helps balance the system. Theanine is used to reduce stress and anxiety without the tranquilizing effects found in many other calming agents.

Scientific evidence shows that Theanine stimulates the brain’s production of alpha waves, making the user feel relaxed but alert and not drowsy. It also helps the body produce other calming amino acids, such as dopamine, GABA, and tryptophan. As might be expected from a calming supplement, Theanine may be able to lower elevated blood pressure as well.

This is why I was excited to receive the note below from my friend, health care provider and fellow trustee on our foundation Landofthesun.org, Joe Spano, MD.

ecuador-shaman

Here are Merri and me with Dr. Joe Spano (left) and Dr. Jim Key both board certified in anti aging at a shamanic ceremony on the ancient Inca Rumicucho pyramids.

When Joe gives me a health idea, I listen. His resume shows why:

Joe attended Louisiana State University School of Medicine in New Orleans from 1959 – 1963. His internship was done at Mixed Medical and Surgery; Kings County hospital center, Brooklyn, New York. His Medical Residency was at Veterans Administration Hospital and Tulane University School of Medicine, New Orleans. He had special training at Resident in Clinical Cardiology under John H. Phillips M.D., Chief of Cardiology, Veterans Administration Hospital, New Orleans.

Joe was an instructor in Physical Diagnosis at Tulane University School of Medicine. He was a Research Fellow in Medicine for gastroenterology at Harvard University, Thorndike Memorial Laboratory, Boston City Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts. He served in the Military from 1967 to 1969 in the USAF, 3560th USAF Hospital, Webb AFB, Texas; Chief of Internal Medicine; Chief of Professional Services; Chief of Laboratory Services; Chief of Radiology.

Joe has honors, membership and diplomat to American Board of Internal Medicine, Harvard Trained Gastroenterologist, American Board of Anti-Aging Medicine, Phi Beta Pi Medical Fraternity. He is listed in ”Best Doctors in America“, America’s Top Physicians (Research Council of America) and was chief of staff at Naples Community Hospital.

Joe sent this note:  Gary I have taken the liberty of sending you a few bottles of green tea, pomegranate and blueberry extracts that the business I am involved with provides. Try them and see what you think.

Thera-green Tea contains only pure, wild crafted, Chinese Green Tea and herbs.
Thera-Green Tea contains natural antioxidants derived from Green Tea, Lotus Leaf, and Kudzu Root.

Thera-green Tea helps fight free-radicals. It is an excellent addition to a weight loss program… provides immune support… nourishes cardiovascular health and
promotes healthy collagen production.

Blueberries  have one of the highest anti-oxidant ratings of all the  berries. Although the acai berry, the mangosteen  berry, and the gogi berry all are enjoying a  lot of  publicity, the blueberry is a superb  source of the chemicals such as quercetin, vitamin c, resveratrol, and anthocyanidins that neutralize free radicals which wreak havoc on cell membranes and dna making it equal if not superior in efficacy.

Extracts of blueberries enhance brain function and reduce brain aging  according to recent research, along with bilberry (a component of thera-blueberry)  improve night vision and may slow macular degeneration.  Eye strain is decreased as well.

Thera-BlueBerry contains the pure, raw pulp of whole wild Blueberries, plus
extracts of Pomegranates, Bilberries, and Elderberries.

One dropper is equivalent to 10 cups of the blueberry juice. It requires this much to get the various health benefits that have been ascribed to blueberries.

The convenience is a major advantage, I add the extracts to my water, oatmeal, and cereals.

One still has the benefit of the super food berries, even in the off season.

This is not to indicate that fresh berries are not better and that in Ecuador those fresh juices aren’t more delicious and nutritious.

Thera-Pomegranat contains all natural extracts of real whole Pomegranate fruit.  This ancient fruit has modern health benefits. Originating from Persia and mentioned in the Old Testament, pomegranate has been found to  have many positive effects on health. synergistically blended with Green Tea and Elderberry extracts.

Daily consumption of this fruit juice or its extracts seems to decrease progression of atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

Also, it may improve circulation to the heart under stress.  The polyphenol content, notably the anthocyanidins (gives it the color) has been shown  to reduce the progression of prostate cancer.

Because it enhances nitrous oxide production in the body the juice has been helpful in some men with erectile dysfunction. Concentrated pomegranate juice may be useful in lowering ldl (bad) cholesterol and reducing blood pressure.

Like cranberry juice its chemical components inhibits the ability of bacteria  to adhere to the urinary bladder wall and cause infection.

The fresh fruit is not available year round and the juice in supermarkets is expensive.

Therefore, the concentrated juice extract available as thera-pomegranate  from preferred medical supplements is a convenient was of getting your daily health requirement.

One or two droppers is all that is needed daily.  Regards, Joe

I am not selling these supplements but use these green tea and fruit extracts as  part of  my anti-aging strategy.

Joe has been kind to extended  a 10% discount to readers GaryaScott.com and ecuadorliving.com.

Everything is frequency and when in balance our frequencies are golden.  Yet there are many frequencies in the modern world from noise to fast food to micro-waves that disturb our natural frequency balance.

You can help restore the Golden Mean within in many ways…. through music, nutrition and being surrounded by nature.  We look forward to sharing Good Vibrations with you. Hear even better balancing vibrations below.

The greatest asset of all is the ability to labor at what you love wherever you live. This brings everlasting wealth.

This is why we are providing a special three for one offer with our  course Tangled Web… How to Have an Internet Business. This can help you create your own internet business.

Our emailed course “Tangled Webs We Weave – How to Have Your Own Web Based Business” is a continuing educational program.  You receive the first 28 lessons when you enroll and a new lesson every week or two.

This course teaches how to create a web based business and is developed from the ongoing experiences that we have from our successful and profitable internet business.

This course is well worth the enrollment fee of $299… but currently you also receive two additional courses FREE.

The other two courses are #1: International Business Made EZ, and #2: Self Fulfilled – How to be a Self Publisher.

These two courses have sold for $398 and thousands have paid this price. We add them to your course, at no added cost, as I believe they will help you develop a better business in these crucial times..

Even Better Get All three Courses Free

To make this offer even more compelling,  I am giving everyone who enrolls in our North Carolina or Ecuador International Business & Investing seminar in October or November all three courses, “Tangled Web… How to Have an Internet Business Course,”  “Self Fulfilled- How to be a Self Publisher” and “International Business Made EZ” free.
