FAIR PLAY

“My son, I’m giving you the ball and naming you scrum-half for your team in the game of life. I’ve seen your coach, so I’m giving it to you straight. There is only one game to play. It lasts all your life, with no time out, no substitutions, You’ll have a great back-line and fullback. Their names are Faith, Hope, Charity, Love, Peace and Commitment.

Your forwards are a powerful pack, too. They are Honesty, Loyalty and Duty; Self-respect and Discipline; Dignity and Courage; and Enthusiasm.

God is the referee and sole official. He makes all the rules. Some call them the Ten Commandments. Play according to them. Try to help your teammates do the same.

So: here is the ball. It is called your soul. Pick it up and run with it, and let’s see what you can do…

Banking Bad – the journalist who sparked a Royal Commission

The writing journey began with writing articles for financial institutions, which were turned into books (Google ‘from riches to rags’)

“THE JOURNALIST “… REVEALING AND INTERESTING "INTERVIEWS"

https://www.rnz.co.nz/national/programmes/ninetonoon/20190808

Journalist Adele Ferguson helped to expose the shocking practices of the big four banks in Australia, the parent companies to the big four banks here, well as the insurer AMP. Her articles helped prompt a Royal Commission into the banking sector and her book Banking Bad is out this week. We’re taking a look at the corrupt and questionable practices the banks adopted to sell their products and the toll that has taken.from
