1) Path to spiritual healing may be a free hug (of Mata Amritanandamayi) away: American Press Loves Mata Amritanandamayi
2) 3 July 2001 : How they grew rich: Contrary to what many believe, the economic lives of our
ancestors is a story of almost unrelieved wretchedness.
Everywhere, a small number lived humanely while the great
majority lived in abysmal squalor. We forget their misery,
in part, by the grace of literature, poetry, and legend,
which celebrate those who lived well and forget those who
lived in the silence of poverty.
The eras of misery have been mythologised and are
remembered as golden ages of pastoral simplicity. They were
not. In truth, survival was the only order of business.
3) HBS Working Knowledge: Leadership, Strategy & Competition: Why Leaders Need Great Books: "Here's this young guy," says Badaracco of Jerry in the
story. "He's smart. He's ambitious. Like the people he's
selling insurance to, he's starting out with nothing in
life. He wants to make something of himself; and ultimately
he does. But he's got to deal very early in his career with
something he thinks is wrong.
"The struggle is partly with his own idealism versus the
circumstances in which he's found himself. And it's partly
against the policies of a large organization."
4) HBS Working Knowledge: Leadership, Strategy & Competition: Harold Bloom On What Bill Gates Should Be Reading This Summer: Every individual—regardless of profession—needs to stretch
his mind and to reflect, now and again, on the human
condition. Literature beckons, but which works should be
read, and why? To help answer these questions, HBR senior
editor Diane L. Coutu recently met with Harold Bloom, the
Sterling Professor of the Humanities at Yale University and
Berg Professor of English at New York University Graduate
School. A MacArthur Prize winner, Bloom has edited more
than 1,200 books of literary criticism and has written 24
books, among them such best-sellers as Shakespeare and The
Western Canon. In this excerpt taken from a wide-ranging
conversation in his home in New Haven, Connecticut, Bloom
discussed what we can learn from literature—and what we

7) Encompass Magazine, Charting a Sustainable Course - February / March 2001: Jim : "What an exciting concept! I would love to see this
happen everywhere. Cars are the stinking dinosaur of the
20th century. Leaving the airport yesterday, I remember
thinking to myself, "there's no way you pry the cars away
from these people". And you couldn't take my car away from
me right now. Life totally sucks down here without a car.
The urbanized world will have to be redesigned to
accomodate a car-free lifestyle but I think it would be
more than worth it. I think it's critical for the future
of our planet's environment, the environment our children
and grand-children will have to breathe and play in."

9) SAP sticks to forecasts as U.S. rivals warn : Europe's biggest software maker SAP AG said on Tuesday it
was sticking to its sales and earnings forecasts, despite
warnings from two of its U.S. rivals of disappointing
second-quarter results. "Of course, we are currently
sticking to the forecasts," a spokesman said, adding that

forecast would stand. SAP has said it expects sales growth
to exceed 23% in the nine months to September 2001 with
operating margins growing by one or two percentage points
above the 14% seen in the first nine months of 2000.
