Thinking out of the box

Throughout my life I have learned an important lesson, you have to always be looking ahead, learning from the past and thinking out of the box. As most of you know I am passionate about finding a cure for type 1 diabetes. I am pleased to share that we are funding an important project at Massachusetts General Hospital that is actually going to test a potential cure on humans - not mice.

Living off our credit card

The other day I was handed a report from Decision Economics, Inc.
Sinai’s Market Perspectives: The Weakening Dollar and “Next Great Global Currency”, published on March 4th, 2008.*

After reading the report, I think you’ll agree this is the price of not giving a darn and living off our credit card. Real fighting stuff in my opinion.

Mr. Schneider Goes To Washington

If you think just showing up to vote in November is going to fix this country, you got another thing coming. Voting (which 50% of Americans usually don't do) can't be the end of our obligation as American citizens.

Recently I saw a fantastic documentary film. The director, Jonathan Neil Schneider left a successful career and spent his savings to expose how our elections are financed and how it can corrupt Washington. "Mr. Schneider Goes to Washington" couldn't be more timely. It is also funny and entertaining. Throughout the film I kept asking myself, "Where is our democracy heading?" "Aren't there any rules anymore?".

Everyone needs to see this film! And to all my friends in the media, if you want to know what Lee Iacocca thinks is wrong with politics, watch "Mr. Schneider Goes to Washington."
