Your choices: Your quality-of-life. Links to brief, readable research summaries, published in the last 30 days, that may help to improve your quality-of-life (NB If you read only the first and last paragraphs of each research report you'll normally get the key take-away message.)
We have over 70 Courses on a great variety of subjects. There are no prior requirements and no tests. You would be learning at home for pleasure all for a small annual membership fee of $A30.
Are you interested in being the editor of GEMs? If so then your time is now. Being editor is rewarding, interesting and inspiring. It is a volunteer role and will not take up too much of your time. If you are interested please contact Jill Reid (current editor) at firstname.lastname@example.org
