THE DANGER WITHIN by E.L. PiniA suspenseful book, depicting real characters and exciting and unexpected twists in the plot. The characters are complex and real.”UNITED STATES, January 10, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Both in character design and plot, the books of E.L. Pini exhibit a uniquely modern take on the genre of terror and espionage thriller novels. Yet at the same time, they appeal to fans of some of the genre’s iconic names like Tom Clancy, Daniel Silva, Brad Thor, Nelson DeMille, Terry Hayes and David Morrell.— Amazon reviewer Rebecca S.
In his book A DANGER WITHIN, Pini’s protagonist Mossad Agent Avner Ehrlich is a character developed from the author’s own experience after completing three years of military service in an Israel Defense Forces special unit.
In fact, before completing a description of a fight or physical altercation for Ehrlich, Pini will often get a group of ex-combat fighter friends together to play out the scene from beginning to end and use what he learns to enhance and fine-tune it. This is why many readers attest that the fast-paced, gripping depictions often feel as if they are watching a movie rather than reading a book.
Ehrlich is a serial rulebreaker, but whenever the need for a dangerous top-secret operation arises, he is the Israeli Mossad’s first pick. So what happens when the hunter becomes the hunted, and Ehrlich finds himself an enemy target?
In A DANGER WITHIN, Ehrlich stands before the most cunning enemy he has ever faced – an enemy with innovative and sophisticated methods that conceal the danger within.
Imad Akbariyah, a rising star in Al-Qaeda’s chain of command, recruits a fellow Palestinian doctor to perform surgeries on terrorist Shahids and implant their bodies with plastic explosives that allow them to move freely through any security check or device – effectively creating grave danger through these “human ticking bombs.” Imad remembers when his father was killed in front of his eyes by an Israeli commando officer and dreams of the day he will get his revenge on the man responsible – who he learns was Ehrlich.
As the violent chases intensify, a blood-soaked war is only a matter of time. The personal encounter between the two rivals is inevitable – and Ehrlich is fighting not only to prevent the killing of innocent lives, but to save his own.
The story is a nail-biter, and the characters become more complex as each chapter unfolds.
Amazon reviewer Rebecca S., an enthusiastic reader of Daniel Silva, Lee Child and Brad Thor, calls Pini’s work “a suspenseful book, depicting real characters and exciting and unexpected twists in the plot. The characters are complex and real.”
After completing three years of military service in an Israel Defense Forces special unit, E.L. PINI went to London, where he studied script writing and took on various jobs employing his unique skill set – bodyguard, bouncer, photographer, and even getaway driver (for which he has yet to suffer consequences). He later found some success as a screenwriter for advertisements and documentaries. These days, Pini likes to spend his free time cooking, listening to operas and rock-crawling with his modified Jeep.

"Into Russia’s Cauldron" contains a warning from the past that resonates for today’s U.S.-Russia relationshipA cautionary tale about corporate naiveté in a little-understood land”CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, USA, January 3, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The newly released book, "Into Russia’s Cauldron," by Steven Fisher, tells the dramatic story of an individual and America’s leading financial institution fighting the inevitable in Russia, a chronicle grippingly brought to life in the never-seen-before century-old journal of Dartmouth College graduate, Leighton Rogers. In 1916, the National City Bank of New York, the precursor of today’s Citibank, sent Rogers to Russia to join a mission to achieve American commercial preeminence–a vision set forth by Frank Vanderlip, the president of National City Bank, who enthusiastically declared, “Russia’s need for capital is like Sahara’s thirst for water.” National City Bank instead fell into a Russian revolutionary maelstrom. Leighton Rogers wrote down everything he saw and experienced. His journal contains an eloquent, fresh and riveting account of that tumultuous time and recounts the devastating outcome of a singularly failed mission.— John Tefft, former US ambassador to Russia
Meticulously researched, "Into Russia’s Cauldron" addresses long-standing questions about Russia’s role on the world stage and conveys geopolitical lessons Leighton Rogers and his National City Bank colleagues learned one century ago that are compellingly relevant today.

Covid-19 dominated the news in 2021, however, It’s the accompanying numbers that lift the numerals to the lofty position of Word of the Year for 2021 (#WOTY).Covid-19 has dominated the news in 2021 but It’s the numerals that accompany every story, in any language, in any medium that lift the numerals to the lofty position of Word of the Year (#WOTY).”AUSTIN, TX, UNITED STATES, January 3, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ -- "The Global Language Monitor has named 'the Numerals' the Top Words of the Year for 2021 for Global English (#WOTY). This is the first and only Word of the Year effort for Global English," said Paul JJ Payack, founding President of the Global Language Monitor.— Paul JJ Payack, President and Chief Word Analyst of GLM.
The Covid-19 Pandemic has dominated the news in 2021 as it had in 2020. However, It’s the numbers that accompany every story, in any language, at any time, in any medium that lift the numerals to the lofty position of Word of the Year (#WOTY).
There are billions of permutations of the basic ten numerals And no mention of Covid-19 is complete without a full run-down of the relevant stats, e.g. cases, deaths, vaccines administered, changes per day, week, month, year, totals, etc,
The Heart emoji was the Top Word of 2014 the first time a symbol took the honor.
Next Big Numbers for 2022:
US: 1,000,000 Covid Deaths
World: 5,500,000 Covid Deaths
The Top Words of the Year 2021 for Global English follow.
1. The Numerals (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 0) – Every time Covid (or one of its variants) is mentioned, it is surrounded by three to five numbers. Covid-19 currently has about 4 billion citations on Google, which are accompanied by tens of billions of supporting numbers.
2. Covid-19 – Word of the Year in 2020, could be the word of the year in 2022? Perhaps for the decade? Perhaps the 21st century?
3. Wokeness – The state of being awakened to the social distresses found amongst us. Though this appears to occur for every generation it is used by politicians as a never-before-witnessed phenomenon. Favored by Progressives.
4. Variant – The longer the coronavirus persists, the more variations will emerge. Remember the great plague in London in 1666? It was merely a replay of the bubonic plague of the mid-1300s. And the Hong KongFlu? A replay of the Spanish Flu of the World War 1 era.
5. The Pronouns – People have been attempting to re-define their language for their own political purposes, at least since the French Revolution. The Marxists expanded the practice in the early 20th c., right comrade? The practice increased during the Sexual Revolution (Ms., etc.) and continues to grow during the recent ‘racial reckoning'. Today, the Woke among us are attempting to use personal “woke pronouns” to help define their sexual orientation (and yours).
Here is a list of gender-neutral pronouns:
He/She -- Zie, Sie, Ey, Ve, Tey, E
Him/Her -- Zim, Sie, Em, Ver, Ter, Em
His/Her -- Zir, Hir, Eir, Vis, Tem, Eir
His/Hers -- Zis, Hirs, Eirs, Vers, Ters, Eirs
Himself/Herself --Zieself, Hirself, Eirself, Verself, Terself, Emself6.
6. “Flatten the Curve.” – Don’t hear too much discussion about ‘Flattening the Curve” nowadays.
7. Supply Chain – You knew the global economy was linked in ways never before imagined. Now you KNOW it.
8. Cancel Culture – A movement to negate whatever political facts you find inconvenient. Particularly strong on college campuses.
9. Latinx – Gender-neutral version for people of Hispanic heritage, formerly Latino and Latina. I am planning to refer to myself henceforward as HUMANX.
10. D Variant – Another Covid-19 variant
11. Omicrom – Yet another Covid variant. This can go on for decades (see above).
12. Coronavirus – Human coronavirus was first identified in the mid-1960s. Unfortunately, Covid-19 will be far from the last encounter.
13. Joe Biden – 46th and current President of the United States. Biden has about one-half the number of citations as his predecessor.
14. Donald Trump – 45th president of the United States. Trump has twice as many current citations as his successor, Joe Biden.
15. Tokyo Olympics – The 2021, née 2020 Olympics were a modest disappointment, nevertheless, a major achievement to have taken place in the midst of a raging worldwide pandemic
16. Lockdown – At the end of the various national lockdowns; many felt like they had been locked up.
17. WHO – The World Health Organization, whose charter requires it to help “the attainment by all peoples of the highest possible level of health”.
18. Global Warming – ‘Climate Change’ and/or ‘Global Warming’ have ranked near the top of this list for the entire century,. Keen observers of Earth Sciences observe that as recently a 25,000 BCE, the Paleo-Indians were crossing the Bering Land Bridge into the Americas. This means the oceans were some 300 meters lower than today's level.
19. January 6 Event at the U.S. Capitol Building according to Global Citations 1) Attack, 2) Uprising, 3} Insurrection.
20. Vaccine – Operation Warp Speed has begotten a number of vaccines with others, no doubt, to follow.
21. Afghanistan – The fall and unseemly retreat from Afghanistan cast a pall over an already somber year.

Father Christmas and his helpers spent time in the city of Angers, sharing ‘The Way to Happiness’ with families to help them achieve happiness throughout 2022.If one were to think over how he or she would like to be treated by others, one would evolve the human virtues. Just figure out how you would want people to treat you”— L. Ron Hubbard
ANGERS, FRANCE, December 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Father Christmas and his helpers spent some time in the city of Angers, sharing ‘The Way to Happiness’ with hundreds of families to help them plan success and achieve happiness throughout upcoming 2022. Similar activities took place around Europe with more helpers of Santa in coordination wit volunteers of the local churches of Scientology
“My ‘naughty or nice list’ is aimed to ensure the happiness of children and adults for the present and the future,” said Santa Claus in an interview for this story. This white-bearded gentleman in his traditional holiday costume was found in the streets of Angers, France, distributing a special edition of The Way to Happiness, the common-sense guide to better living written by author and humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard.
Santa really liked one of the precepts of this nonreligious moral code, which is a positive version of The Golden Rule.
“One can get into a lot of conflicting opinions and confusions about what ‘good behaviour’ might be,” it states.
“However, the booklet makes this so simple to understand that it is easy to put into practice,” Santa told us and then read us the following quote:
“If one were to think over how he or she would like to be treated by others, one would evolve the human virtues. Just figure out how you would want people to treat you.”
The book, which was distributed by Pere Noel and his helpers, contains a list of 20 virtues and makes them easy to understand and use. There is even a course on The Way to Happiness website with interactive lessons designed to help those wishing to learn the 21 precepts of the booklet and use them to bring true happiness to oneself and others. “Christmas spirit must be worked on throughout the whole year,” said Santa, “so I fully recommend it especially now that we are preparing for a challenging 2022 where we all have to step up our attitudes and make it the best year ever”.
“For those who prefer watching to reading, or who simply want to spend some family time with a good uplifting movie,” said one of the French helpers of Pere Noel in Angers, “the Scientology Network streams The Way to Happiness book on film” that includes a chapter making it very simple to understand.
And the importance of understanding and implementing these values spells the difference between misery and happiness, as the booklet states:
“There is little joy to be found in gloomy, restrained solemnity. When some of old made it seem that to practice virtue required a grim and dismal sort of life, they tended to infer that all pleasure came from being wicked: nothing could be further from the facts. Joy and pleasure do not come from immorality! Quite the reverse! Joy and pleasure arise only in honest hearts: the immoral lead unbelievably tragic lives filled with suffering and pain. The human virtues have little to do with gloominess. They are the bright face of life itself.”
Broadcast from Scientology Media Productions, the Church’s global media center in Los Angeles, the Scientology Network is available on DIRECTV Channel 320 and can be streamed on Scientology.tv, on mobile apps and via the Roku, Amazon Fire and Apple TV platforms.
Study finds that Canadians prefer to be approached for donations online. As pandemic triggers shift in donation habits.
Study finds that over a third of Canadians prefer to be approached for donations online, rather than in person. As pandemic triggers shift in donation habits.we rise by lifting others”NORTH YORK, ON, CANADA, December 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- A majority of Canadians dislike being approached for a charitable donation in person, a study has revealed - as the new Werbylo app helps donate to good causes in just three taps.— Robert Ingersoll
A study by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP) Foundation for Philanthropy found that more than a third (34%) of Canadians surveyed preferred receiving an email asking them to make a charitable donation over any other method.
The second most popular method of receiving a prompt to donate was via mail, with 26% of donors favouring this method.
Whilst 21% of the 1,561 Canadians surveyed by AFP said that they disliked being approached for a donation in person - such as by a cashier at checkout.
And a massive 76% of those surveyed had made a charitable donation in the last year.
With the pandemic causing a seismic shift in the way that charities fundraise and how donors choose to give, it’s no surprise that technology has stepped in to fill the gap.
Apps and websites such as Werbylo (We Rise By Lifting Others), a Canadian crowdfunding platform, have allowed charities of any size to set themselves up online with no hidden fees charged.
The adoption of this technology has coincided with an unpredicted rise in global charitable donations throughout the pandemic.
Incredibly the charity sector has seen a huge rise in the number of people making donations globally, with 33% of the world’s population having donated to charity in 2020, the Charities Aid Foundation’s World Giving Index 2021 found.
With the loss of physical fundraising events and the closures of stores worldwide, this rise can be largely attributed to the introduction of fundraising apps and websites such as Werbylo.
Additionally, the donation amounts that Canadian donors are giving have risen in value to an average of $965 (CAD) - perhaps with people more willing to donate large sums with the anonymity that online giving allows.
Unlike many other platforms, Werbylo is free to use for donors and has no hidden monthly fees for non-profits and charities - just an essential processing fee of 3.9% + $0.30 per transaction for the recipient.
Fees charged by many crowdfunding platforms have previously put charities off from making the move online, as they feared paying large processing fees to accept their hard-earned donations via a payment platform.
Mani Rahnama, the founder of WERBYLO, said: “The way donors give has changed as a result of the pandemic with 42% of charities cutting down their cash donation collections for hygiene and logistical reasons.
“We’ve seen the number of online donations skyrocket, and there’s no indication that this number is set to fall with the end of the pandemic as so many organizations continue to move operations online.
“We created WERBYLO, an online crowdfunding platform, to allow charities, non-profits, and places of worship of any size to be able to accept payments from their supporters free of charge, and without the need for a physical exchange of cash.
“Werbylo makes it easier to act on that moment of goodwill within seconds, by simply pulling out a phone and making a donation in just three clicks on the app.
“Werbylo crowdfunding platform has raised an incredible $110 million for good causes since launching, our goal is for it to reach $1 billion in 2022 as more and more charities move donations online.”
However, for the charities that have made the switch to online fundraising rather than holding in-person events or opening fundraising kiosks and shops, 48% said they believed that fundraising had changed for good and wouldn’t be going back to traditional methods, a survey by CAF found.
In the UK a Government assessment of Covid-19’s impact on the charitable sector found that 11% of charities had seen an increase in funding by using an online payment platform.
But in the USA that figure was much higher, with the 2021 M+R Benchmarks Study reporting that total online revenue grew by 32%, with Hunger and Poverty charities seeing a mindblowing 173% increase in their online income.
Charities using a service that allowed their donors to commit to a monthly donation, such as Werbylo, found that their monthly revenue from donations increased 25%, accounting for 19% of all of their online revenue in 2020, M+R reports. And the value of one-off gifts from online donors increased by 37% in 2020, the report found.
Those that donated online through their phone gave an average of $42 (USD) whilst those who hopped on their desktop computer or laptop to donate gave an average of $80, the study found.
The study also found that charities that took part in Covid-19 relief work saw their online incomes rise by 40% - mostly through one-off donations - whilst those that didn’t saw their online income rise by 22%. This donation pattern is similar to what is usually observed following a natural disaster.
This year it is not only charities turning to online crowdfunding platforms, but also many places of worship relying on platforms like the Werbylo app to help collect worshipers’ contributions in a contactless manner.
Payment platforms such as Werbylo have been essential for places of worship as congregations returned to physical worship, with physical cash donations halted to prevent the transmission of covid-19.
But it is not only monetary donations that have made the pandemic a charitable time, with a miraculous three billion people (55% of the world’s population) helping a stranger in 2020 during the Covid-19 global crisis.
Through the Werbylo app nonprofits can also manage their upcoming events and volunteer workforce, a difficult task in the midst of a pandemic when 51% of charities surveyed by Ipsos experienced difficulty recruiting volunteers.
Why not donate to a charity right now and set good intentions for 2022? Visit Werbylo.com or download the Werbylo donation app for Apple or Android, to make a donation in just three clicks.
Give yourself the gift of writing this holiday season in L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future Online Workshop.What this course can give you is counsel that might help you jump forward in your ability to handle the tools of the writing profession.”LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, December 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- Give yourself the gift of writing this holiday season, say David Farland (“The Runelords”), Tim Powers (“On Stranger Tides”), and Orson Scott Card (“Enders Game”). All three international bestselling authors and Writers of the Future Contest Judges are the featured guest lecturers for the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Online Workshop.— Orson Scott Card, author of "Enders Game"
Initially announced in the Summer 2020 issue of SciFi Magazine by noted editor Jeff Berkwits, who referred to the new Writers of the Future Online Writing Course as “an extension of L. Ron Hubbard’s Writers of the Future (WOTF) Contest, the world’s preeminent competition for up-and-coming genre authors.” Berkwits acknowledged the goal “to help budding speculative storytellers become future Hugo, Nebula, and WOTF award winners.”
The writing workshop is comprised of 13 videos by Orson Scott Card, David Farland, and Tim Powers, along with 11 essays by Contest founder L. Ron Hubbard and writing assignments.
Essays and practical assignments take a writer from research and concepts to a completed story. With a 4.7 out of 5-star rating, the course is designed for the participant to go at their own pace.
It has been well received with nearly 6,000 aspiring writers from over 100 countries worldwide enrolled. An impressive 72% of those taking the workshop have a story completed by the end of the course, an accomplishment many have unsuccessfully aspired to in the past.
Orson Scott Card stated, “No writing course or workshop can give you your style or your voice; you already have them. What this course can give you is counsel that might help you jump forward in your ability to handle the tools of the writing profession.” As to why this online workshop, he concluded, “Let us help you prepare to bring your own stories to life in your own voice.”
The competition for new stories can be daunting―R. R. Bowker reported more than 1,000,000 books published in 2017, up from 300,000 in 2009, with 2/3rds being self-published. And so, the Writers of the Future Online Workshop was created to help authors take their stories to the next level and rise above the competition.
Regarding the value of the workshop to help take stories to the next level, Tim Powers stated, “The online workshop is tremendously valuable―it saves new writers years of trial-and-effort struggle.”
“Everyone has a story to tell,” stated David Farland, Writers of the Future Coordinating Judge. “That’s not the problem. How to tell that story in such a fashion that others will enjoy it and tell others about it is what is needed.” That is what the nearly 6,000 aspiring writers are learning with the L. Ron Hubbard Writers of the Future Online Workshop.
So if you are an aspiring writer, why not give yourself the gift of writing this holiday season. Anyone can sign up for the writing workshop at Free Online Workshop.
The Writers of the Future writing contest was initiated by L. Ron Hubbard in 1983 to provide “a means for new and budding writers to have a chance for their creative efforts to be seen and acknowledged.” Based on its success, its sister contest, Illustrators of the Future, was created five years later to provide that same opportunity for aspiring artists.
Throughout the Contests’ 38-year history, over 500 writers have been awarded. Winners have published nearly 1,200 novels and over 6,000 short stories and have produced 33 New York Times bestsellers, with their works selling over 60 million copies.

PlayTreks named a Key-Player in the Global Music NFT market
PlayTreks (TREKS:TREKS)We believe that the HTF report shows we are on the right strategic path to serve our clients and the industry.””HASSELT, BE-VLI, BELGIUM, December 23, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- PlayTreks, the All-In-One platform for the music industry, was named a key player in the Global Music NFT market report researched by HTF Market Intelligence— Anjo De Heus
The majority of key players are focussing on securing a leading market in the music industry, as PlayTreks is doing with its NFT marketplace, The PlayGrounds. Other key players include OpenSea, Nifty Gateway, and Rarible among a few others.
PlayTreks, an innovative company applying artificial intelligence and blockchain technology to make artists and record labels meet the growing demand for transparency and new ways of monetizing music, today announced that it has been named a key player in the Global Music NFT market by HTF Market Intelligence.
PlayTreks NFT PlayGrounds marketplace was recognized because of its readiness, global coverage, and completeness, and was researched based on primary and secondary research, white paper, publications, website, world bank statistics, and HTF market intelligence.
The music industry has been inextricably linked to technology since the discovery of sound recording in 1877. Technological innovations have influenced how music is made, played, saved, distributed, and enjoyed. This is from the first discs to streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music from the birth of record changing to the rise of modern electronic sound.
The rise of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs, is a developing trend in the music industry. NFT transactions enable audiences to bid on one-of-a-kind content from their favorite artists in auctions. These tokens, as well as the transactions that entail them, currently empower the artists who sell them. Only time will tell if NFTs are here to stay, as they are brand-new breakthroughs. An NFT (Non-Fungible Token) is a one-of-a-kind digital asset held on the blockchain.
For record labels, publishers, and their lawyers, licensing and transferring ownership of music is now a pretty complex process, and manually clearing samples for usage or transferring rights can even postpone the release of the music. However, with efficient and secure document transfer, NFT makes licensing and transferring music as simple and quick as shopping online.
“We are honored to be recognized by HTF Market Intelligence as a key player in the global music NFT market,” said Anjo De Heus, CEO of PlayTreks. We’re continuing to build our comprehensive platform for music management and execution to serve as the engine that drives commerce for our clients. Music Data is essential to the blockchain platform for NFTs, and that's what sets us apart. We believe that the HTF report shows we are on the right strategic path to serve our clients and the industry.”
This is the first time that PlayTreks has been named a key player in the global music NFT market as they only went live with the All-In-One platform in April of 2021 and the market for music NFT's is relatively new.
The power of the PlayTreks platform is its completeness with services such as music distribution to traditional streaming platforms and blockchain-based NFT marketplaces, radio airplay monitoring, music rights copyright control, and driven by lots of data so artists always have a 360-degree view on music performance.

When a young Crown Prince running at 17 years of age became the King of Bhutan in 1972, one of His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck’s first and ever-lasting initiatives to bring happiness and wellbeing to his citizens was through the principles of Gross National Happiness, which he propounded was more important than Gross National Product. This concept questioned the conventional economic measurement system that GDP alone could not bring happiness and well-being to citizens.
Although still a teenage monarch, His Majesty was wise beyond his years. He firmly believed that happiness was a valid indicator and a sign of progressive development for his country. He also believed in the legitimacy of public participation in defining Bhutan’s development goals. He brought the nation to a democracy without making the citizens realize it.
The concept re-counts Bhutan’s ancient legal code of 1629 given by Zhabdrung whose embodiment is His Majesty Jigme Singye Wangchuck that states ‘if the government cannot create happiness for its people, then there is no purpose for that government to exist.’ The code notes that Bhutanese laws must promote happiness for all sentient beings. For the King, the focus was never just the economic progress of his country but creating a flourishing human society living in harmony with its environment.
Today, plentiful research shows that wealth alone doesn’t contribute to happiness and life satisfaction. The Gross National Happiness index measures the quality of its development holistically, believing that the positive development of human society happens when material and spiritual growth occurs alongside each other. That is why this small Himalayan country is considered a living example of sparking the debate on human development.
Four decades later, Bhutan, now a democratic country, still ensures the inclusion and continuity of GNH values as enshrined in its Constitution of the Kingdom of Bhutan. As a public policy, the GNH development framework is supported by four pillars:
Sustainable and equitable socio-economic development
Conservation of the environment
Preservation and promotion of culture
An overarching objective within these pillars is eradicating poverty without any compromise with nature.
His Majesty made sure to teach his son, the present King His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, the same values so he could continue leading the country according to the most important gauging legacy – the happiness. GNH has been further enhanced and signified by the King His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck as ‘Development with values bridging with kindness, equity, and humanity'.
Acclaimed as ‘the people’s king,’ His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck has already won over hearts worldwide. He is a gentle, compassionate, and kind monarch who expanded a royal welfare system that helps the rural poor.
He started his reign with the democratization of his country. He traveled and continues to visit all parts of the country mainly on foot, talking to people from all walks of life understanding their problems, and helping them through his government to come out with measures and policies to overcome their issues. He is engaged with young people about the importance of higher standards in education, business, and servicing. He signed the abolishment of anti-homosexuality laws and launched the National Cadastral Resurvey to resolve issues of excess land. He also established the Rehabilitation Project, which focuses on improving the lives of people who live in remote or difficult areas.
According to the King His Majesty Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck, every generation must interpret GNH in their own way because of the changes of time and environment that they would live in. He believes that a vibrant economy propelled by the right kind of technology and educated civilization is the very foundation on which national happiness can be built.
