20,000,000 low-birth-weight babies are born each year.

450 of them die each hour.

This occurs primarily in developing countries, often in areas that don’t have access to innovations in modern medicine. One of the biggest problems these babies face is hypothermia: they are not able to regulate their own body temperature, and therefore cannot stay warm. In fact, room temperature for these small infants feels freezing cold. 4 million of these babies die each year. Those that do survive often develop life-long health problems such as early onset of diabetes, heart disease, and low IQ.

This is a preventable tragedy...

So I received as a gift recently Esteban's Complete Guitar Course. I've picked it up and considered buying it many times, but have always changed my mind before leaving the store. I think it is one of those things you don't buy for yourself.

He's studied under legendary guitar master Andres Segovia, performed thousands of concerts, and topped the Billboard charts. Now Esteban will teach me to play guitar in this comprehensive course, which will have me playing classics from "Greensleeves" to "Malaguena" to "House of the Rising Sun" in no time. With step-by-step instruction, Esteban will go beyond chords and fingerings to teach me how to improvise naturally, become a versatile guitarist, and just have fun.

It may not help me play any better than I do now, but I will be able to play more like Esteban

I can hardly wait.

Now More Than Ever, You Need One Bag

There's no question: overpacking tops the list of biggest travel mistakes. And it doesn't help that the airlines are charging extra fees for everything - soon they'll be charging for how many articles of clothing you're wearing on the plane.
Check out, which offers exhaustive (some might say exhausting!) detail on the art and science of travelling light, going pretty much anywhere, for an indefinite length of time, with no more than a single carry-on-sized bag.
