  2. 2. Audience Survey
  3. 3. P80M Lotto Winner, Naputulan ng Kuryente. "Last Sunday’s debut telecast (True Stories on QTV featured) the story of a man who won over P80 million playing the lotto sweeps—and eventually lost most of it. In fact, his fortunes have fallen so low that the electricity in his ―mansion‖ has been cut off, and his kitchen shelves are bare. (Inquirer.net, 1/29/10.
  4. 4. Florida Lotto winner wished he had never won. Family members say Abraham Shakespeare, a truck driver's assistant, was constantly hounded for a piece of his $30 million lotto winnings. Shakespeare's brother told The Associated Press that Shakespeare often wished he had never bought the winning ticket. `` `I'd have been better off broke.' He said that to me all the time,'' Robert Brown said. (In April of 2009, Shakespeare was murdered and buried in the backyard of his friend.) Read more: http://www.miamiherald.com/

You can actually grow new dendrites if you continue to intellectually stimulate ourself through reading, doing puzzles, and playing games like chess .By creating more dendrites and more connections, you create more chances for thought generation. So every time you have a new thought, you literally change your brain at a chemical, electrical, and physical level. MOST IMPORTANT…… a thought is real! Your mind is powerful!! Brain Cell
