1. Education & Learning Online
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

During the past few years our firm has seen the increasing demand for online learning, education and training courses offered over the Internet. Developing countries especially in Eastern and Southern Africa are poised to introduce major steps forward by introducing national programmes through government departments, these schemes being backed by international sponsor and donation funds.

The main objective is to make up for the acute shortage of qualified teachers and trainers, plus the current lack of computer hardware and local courseware relevant to the local population.

Fortunately the Internet now allows access to career courses and online training modules on an international level. To assist in this goal of providing suitable and relevant online learning, our firm, along with experienced educationalists in the United States has recently established an online training programme known as the "Delamere Institute of Online Learning."

The courses and modules are ideally suited for individuals or groups and the list of categories will be expanded as our research and demand for certain fields of training, especially for employment qualifications, are recognized. For further details read about our "Education Update" which covers the topics of "Literacy" and "The Value of Education" with specific reference to "Online Learning." Read more.

2. A warning to our British clients about off shore tax havens.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Does the new 488-page "Finance Bill" issued recently by the British Government, have hidden deep down in its text, a new opportunity for the Treasury? Does The Treasury now have far too wide a discretion to attack off shore tax havens? Read the full story. Click here.

3. Is Gibraltar a Money Laundering Haven?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

A letter from the UK government - asking Gibraltar to explain why it has not filed complete financial statistics since 1997 - has been met with renewed claims by Spanish media that the Rock is a haven for money laundering. To read the full story, click here.

4. World Conference on Money Laundering
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

A major conference is being scheduled in New York, related to the now controversial issue of money laundering and holding funds in off shore accounts. Since September 2001, the fight against money laundering and terrorist funding has gained momentum. Many governments, calling for dramatic anti-money laundering initiatives, have passed new legislation and regulations. To read about the Conference schedule for 18 - 20 September 2002, visit this website.

5. Seminars and Events About the Internet
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Many of our readers have requested to be notified when international upcoming events and seminars are scheduled to take place, especially those held by "Internet.com" a leading information provider. At regular intervals the very popular seminars, "Search Engine Strategies-2002" and "E-Mail Strategies" are schedules.

6. Slow Internet Growth Will Hinder Growth of Developing Countries.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The importance of the Internet and information technology (IT) to world growth was highlighted late last year when the UN Conference on Trade and Development (Unctad) released its "E-Commerce and Development Report 2001."

It warned of the negative consequences should developing countries fall further behind the industrialized world in terms of technology. For the full report, click here

7. A New service To Protect Internet Payments Against Fraud
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

8. Book of the Month
= = = = = = = = = = =

As most of our readers are aware, our firm is a strong proponent of making everyone cognizant of environmental issues, especially as related to the building and construction industry.

This month we are highlighting a new book on the subject of construction and using natural interiors when we decorate or make improvements to our home or office.

This new publication is entitled "Natural Interiors." Natural materials are not only visually appealing; they can also contribute to our physical and emotional well being. Not only are they less damaging to the environment as a whole, natural materials can counter the pollutants and irritants in our home or work place -- good for our health and good for our souls.

"Natural Interiors" looks at the elements of nature that we can bring into our homes or office--earth, water, fire, air, space, color and light. It then discusses raw materials, such as wood and stone, and how to choose walls, floors, furniture and lighting. It concludes with a section on room design.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

 

Many of our clients, along with ourselves, have been following the progress of the G8 Summit being held in Canada this past week.

Of significant interest is the interview with Prime Minster, Tony Blair on 27 June 2002, when he said, "It will be known as the Summit that devoted the lion's share of its attention to Africa."

We will provide a more in depth review of the Summit in our next Newsletter, but to read the full text of this interview.
