A message to all members of GlobalRisk community

Dear GlobalRisk community member,

Don't tell people how to do things, tell them what to do and let them surprise you with their results. 
George S. Patton

With World cup is nearing its final hour and the ground breaking plan for a financial system overhaul was approved in the USA we are happy to present the GlobalRisk community Highlights, issue 8.
We reached almost 1000 members representing all continents and over the whole spectrum of the risk profession. 
By the way if you've got a frog for a picture, hurry up and replace it!
