Dear fellow Rotarians and Guests,
October 23, 2015 was celebrated as World Polio Day
“No child anywhere should suffer from this completely preventable disease. As little as 60 cents worth of vaccine can protect against polio. We need your voice to end polio now.”  Please continue to contribute to this worthy cause.  Thanks to Rtn. Devorath who hosted an enlightening meeting with the theme centered on Polio.  This was most appropriate as it coincided with World Polio Day.
Saturday October 31, is our 2nd Quarterly Club Assembly.  We look forward to full participation and attendance by our members.
Join us during the month of November as we celebrate Rotary Foundation month.  If you have not yet donated to Rotary Foundation, please do so now.
Wednesday we watched a very short video with 10 fabulous technology tips you need to know.
Our speaker was David Pogue. 
Everything risky requires a license except technology.  Tech columnist David Pogue shares 10 simple, clever tips for computer, web, smartphone and camera users. And yes, you may know a few of these already -- but there's probably at least one you don't.
Fun and enlightening.
We believe that we should work to be happy, but could that be backwards? In this fast-moving and entertaining talk, psychologist Shawn Achor argues that actually happiness inspires productivity.
Have a look at this video to enjoy this week’s meeting shared through the Weekly Bulletin.
The topic is Positive Psychology!  The speaker is funny and very interesting and very thought-provoking.  His talk is on the Science of Happiness – and the “lens” through which we might view our lives.  I hope you’ll love this video!  Listen all the way through!
90 per cent of your happiness is not dependent on the external world but how your brain processes the external world.  If we can change our formula for happiness and success, what we can do is change the way we can affect reality.
  • Only 25 per cent of job successes are predicted by IQ.
  • 75 per cent of job successes are predicted by your optimism levels, your social support, and your ability to see stress as a challenge instead of as a threat.
A particular school mentioned knows the above, so has a Wellness Week built into every year.  However, the speaker’s contention – because of the list of topics and speakers – is that the week is not a “wellness” week, but a “sickness” week because the topics are all negatives – and the positives are totally avoided. 
“The absence of disease is not health.”
How to get to health?  Reverse the formula for happiness and success.
  • The common formula is “If I work harder, I’ll be more successful.”
  • And if I’m more successful, then I’ll be happier.
That is scientifically broken and backwards for two reasons:
Every time your brain has a success, you just change the goalpost of what success looks like.
You got your grades.  Now you have to get better grades.  You hit your sales target, now we have to change your sales target.  …and so on…
If happiness is on the opposite side of success, your brain never gets there.
Our brains work in the opposite order. 
If you can raise somebody’s level of positivity in the present, then their brain experiences what we call a “happiness advantage.”    Your positive brain performs significantly better than at negative, neutral, or  stress.  Your intelligence rises; your creativity rise; your energy levels rise.

  ANNUAL FUND is the primary source of funding for all Foundation activities. Our annual contributions help Rotary Clubs take action to create positive change in communities at home and around the world.  Our gift helps strengthen peace efforts, provide clean water and sanitation, support education, grow local economies, save mothers and children and fight disease.
Through our annual Sustaining Member contributions of $100 or more, the Rotary E-Club of the Caribbean, 7020 has been a 100% EREY contributor since we were chartered in 2013.  Let us continue to support The Rotary Foundation (TRF) through our annual donations.
We have been and continue to “Be a gift to the World”.
