Forensic Psychologists say the best predictor of someone's future behaviour is to look at their past behaviour. There is also the famous proverb he who gossips to you will gossip about you.
The internet has changed the world we live in. That’s a statement we’ve all heard and, possibly, even said in the past. However, when you stop and think about it, the reality goes way beyond a catchy soundbite. When you take stock of the industries that have been reshaped by the internet, the results are staggering.
DRUGS!
Drugs have been around forever, natural cures used by tribal Amazon natives all the way to the Chinese for thousands of years. Born in 1975 my first recollection of the mere mention of drugs was my dad explaining he smoked ‘ dope’ once and all it did was knock him off the park bench after 3 puffs. More partial to a day on the piss, dope didn’t appeal to my dad.
It's been twenty-six Years since Academy Award Winning Film Silence of the Lambs popularised and universalised the concept of criminal profiling also known as Offender profiling. An investigative device used by law enforcement agencies to discover likely suspects and analyse patterns and behaviours that may predict future offences and/or victims.

You don’t need to wait until next summer to start living your best life! 

In 2017, the world at large learned about something known as bitcoin. Despite being used and traded since 2009 when Satoshi Nakamoto unleashed his innovation on the world, the general public only came to know about it in 2017. Why? The main reason the mainstream media went into a bitcoin frenzy was that the price of a single coin jumped from $1,000 to almost $20,000 over a 12-month period.
Since 2012 Lake Garda is my holiday destination of choice, a place that I find exhilarating, fascinating, refreshing and heart-warming. These feelings are aroused the moment I step off the plane at Verona Airport, as I become engrossed with an overwhelming feeling of serenity and stimulation. Poetic as it sounds it is hard, if not impossible, to be drawn into a magical, mystical and even spiritual frame of mind.
The Origin

Robert Louis Stevenson’s famous novella, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde published in 1886, is the renowned story of Dr Henry Jekyll, socialite and experienced doctor, yet underneath his positive persona Dr Jekyll is fighting a psychological battle between the good and evil within himself and believes that medicine would be able to contain the malevolent aspect of his personality.
