Either they have better surgeons in Cuba, or he doesn't trust the local ones not to assassinate him.

Cuba has excellent health care for rich foreigners. Not so great for the Cuban people though. They're kind of like the US in that regard.

Is it because they use Havana cigars for anaesthetic?

Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.

Is it true? I heard of that before, but never really believed it.

UBS hires former Bear Stearns CFO Molinaro

Quote:
Over 20-plus years I came up through the ranks and grew up in the back office, and so I bring some perspective. Hopefully I can add some value to what they’re trying to do,” he said. “There’s no easy answer or recipe, but the people I’ve met here are on the right path.
Price action of UBS in the past 5 days.

Apparently people aren't very confident about this. Not even himself.

Now, this man is a good man:

Marine credits karma for hitting $2.9 million jackpot at Bellagio

A couple of days before he hit a jackpot of nearly $3 million, Cpl. Alexander Degenhardt learned he’d been accepted as a bone marrow donor to an anonymous patient.

“They asked me if I was sure I wanted to go through with it, because it’s kind of painful, but what’s a little pain if it will save someone’s life?” the U.S. Marine said Friday. “I look at this as kind of good karma for that.”

Degenhardt’s karma was worth more than $2.8 million, the second biggest jackpot for Bally Technologies, which manufactures the games and pays out the jackpots.

Yeah it's kinda suck...

I means he was voted by the public onto his role. He still get the highest support by far by public poll (like twice to three times other candidate). But it's still his own failure as only 30/101 positions within the party support him

I don't want to get on the political debate. But should let him finishing his own job in his own term. Hate how the Labour party representatives (kinda) argued that they knows what is better for the country, than those participants for public poll or those voted him into power. They might be right in the end, we never know, but it's just an arrogant attitude of them. And now they have little chance to win next election

I don't stick to one party or the other or follow politics that much, but at the moment I don't trust either of them. Labour is a shambling mess, I'd rather have Rudd in there but the Party would rather not deal with him (oh boo hoo you poor pollies he's a workaholic and he makes you do stuff rather then sitting around throwing darts at a board, like usual), Julia is meh and comes across as incredibly false with the way she speaks and has flip-flopped around on a number of things. In the Liberal party Abbott comes across as a creepy mofo and a few of their policies I just do not agree with. Overall it's a pile of suck.

^ This man speaks the true.

Frankly, nothing to look forward in the political side. Maybe that is their grand evil scheme, making us bored with politics. So they can just do whatever they want

Nah, they are being distracted from the real issues like this :
