editor’s note

That pretty much sums up my principle on how I bring up my children when it comes to generating wealth and income. I believe in giving them all the tools that is necessary so they can “survive” in the real world way beyond the time when I am able to give them their “fish”. When it comes to money and income though, I always tend to add a degree of emphasis towards diversification and for the source of income to be as passive as possible. I admit, when I first became aware of cryptocurrency I was very skeptical, unsure of what to expect. However during the past few months, I have come across a wealth of information about making money in the cryptocurrency world. Some of them are eye openers and…

the geeky monthly

iPhone X Apple have announced their latest flagship phone (pronounced ‘ten’) to go along with their updated iPhone 8 and 8 plus. It’s status is certainly reflected in it’s price, costing slightly more than a MacBook air. The edge-to-edge screen is beautiful, although a little compromised with the extra powerful front camera and sensors used for Face ID and Animoji recordings (kids will get a kick out of it) located right at the top. Gone is the home button and a few new gestures will have to learnt. There’s a new more powerful chip as well as wireless charging. BYTE SIZED NEWS 3D Face Scans Sony’s latest phones will be able to create incredible 3D models of anything, including yourself, but simply moving your phone around whatever you want to scan. It manages to…

cassini prince amongst extra terrestrial explorers

If you view space exploration with the casual eye of the mainstream media, you could be forgiven for thinking that the Cassini space probe has had a leisurely jaunt along to the Saturnian system, only to go plunging headlong into, well, we’re not quite sure what. In reality, the deep plunge into what are likely to be icy depths of a gas giant is the culmination of nearly twenty years of expedition, which has seen Cassini gather truly spectacular data from almost every planet between the Sun and Saturn. Cassini launched from Cape Canaveral on 15th October 1997, making its journey just a month shy of the twenty years intended. Having first headed in to a close flyby of Venus, Cassini then swung out and proceeded towards the Jovian system. Actually…

halloween- happiness

It seems that the year is becoming increasingly divided into segments defined by whatever celebration is only a few weeks away, driving card shops and supermarkets to fill their ‘seasonal’ shelves with tat and glittering rubbish to tempt the magpies and weak-willed amongst us. While major celebrations are well defined and catered for, others such as Chinese New Year, World Book Day, Shakespeare Week, Grandparents Day, and Roald Dahl day (no, really – it’s on 13th September, so you’ve just missed it) are fast becoming solid card and gimmick-laden corporate driven celebrations to get us in the mood for spending money in the year-long run up to Christmas. On the bright side, the next corporate-driven celebration is Halloween, or All Hallows for those in the know, on the 31st October. While…

the impact investment is changing...and for the good

We all, no matter how big or small our intentions, want to do some good. We want to help give back in some way. It makes us feel better within ourselves. It makes us feel less corporate and more human when we help and support each other. However, we tend to separate our values from business. In the past it’s just how things have been done. But with millennials changing the way in which we operate and think – maybe our values and business can be joined in order to achieve a greater good. A bigger good. Where collectively a more substantial positive impact can be made when it comes to social and environmental issues. All by combining business and capital investments. Is there now an opportunity to not just invest in…
