We are probably all familiar with Susan Boyle and Paul Potts but one you may not have come across yet is Chooka Parker (go and check him out on youtube now!). This rural, Aussie, 16 year old guy in his outback hat and coat walks on to the ‘Australia’s Got Talent’ stage in front of however may hundreds of people and proceeds to explain that he will play something on the “piana” (major Aussie twang!) that he has just made up on the spot. Laughs and eye rolling all round. But in typical reality TV fashion we are once again blown away by his incredible, self-taught talent. Not a dry eye in the place. Anyway, I share this with you for one purpose only… it’s Monday… and on days like this we need to watch something nice that causes a smile to be cultivated on our faces – because as Ron Gutman points out (on smiles are scientifically proven to enhance your quality of life!
Have a great week!

Christian Ethics course MB 641: This course was set down to be taught by Mick Duncan. Since this arrangement was made Mick has moved from part-time to adjunct lecturer at Carey and begun a pastorate at Manurewa. He has indicated that work pressures will prevent him lecturing this course in 2011. However, the course will still go ahead. Myk Habets, who taught this course previously, has stepped into the gap and will be lecturer for this course in the second semester. Laurie Guy
