Richard, I tried to watch your recorded session today, and the visuals were not visible, even though your voice was clearly heard.  I thought you should know.  Maybe Steve H. can help you fix this.  I would love to watch.

Today war zone has taken over by Peace zone.The education spreading knowledge and information is overloaded creating confusion rather than clarity.Most of us allow ourselves to get drowned in an overdose of negativity and then find it hard to extricate ourselves from the cycle of greed.Education has to change in 21st century to reverse this process.Money,fame,property and sex although necessary to an extent in life, but they should not be allowed to dominate our lives to breed discontent.Restructurng of Global Education system has to play a critical role to meet this challenge.

I have just returned from hospital.I am working in the field of PEACE for last more than two decades. But slow realisation is coming to me that hardly anyone is prepared to adopt PEACE POWER. Almost every one is for VIOLENT POWER not knowing that only PEACE POWER can conquer every thing in life and the world.For this my two books 1)Peace Technology2) Peace TimeCalendar are unwanted. That is why I want to sell the copyright of my two books.The life and world is miserable today because most of us depend on VIOLENT POWER.All these social networkings are virtual as PEACE POWER has not given its due position.
I think in this life I will not be able to influence the humanity to adopt PEACE POWER as a tool of growth and development.I propose to retire
