The Top Thinkers of Beyond the Rhetoric

August hasn’t quite drawn to an end just yet, but I thought I would take this opportunity to recognize the guys and gals who have been continuing the conversation here on Beyond the Rhetoric. I am always thankful for your comments, questions and feedback. The list of “top thinkers” is quite similar to what we saw last month, though the participants are in a slightly different order.

Leading the pack is Ray Ebersole. As we make our way over to his blog, we see that the school year is starting. He has some basic advice for everyone out there: do what you can. There will never be enough hours in the day, so just do your best and do what’s important. It’ll all be there tomorrow, so try not to sweat the small stuff.

Next up, we have Betshopboy. He offers his retrospective on the London 2012 Olympic Games, including the Usain Bolt highlights. He really is the fastest man on Earth, winning both the 100-meter and 200-meter races, as well as earning a gold medal with his Jamaican teammates in the 4x100m relay. He certainly has the speed to back up his big personality.

Human Health Fitness is a site run by Edwin. It may be easier to keep in shape during the summer with outdoor activities, but it’s important to develop and maintain good home exercise routines for less than desirable weather too. The “butt-bridge” is a good way to strengthen your thighs, for instance, and it requires zero equipment.

Making a return appearance on the Top Thinkers list is NewLaunch. That website focuses on new architectural project launches in Singapore, like the Skies @ Miltonia. The upcoming condo development will have 410 apartments, provides easy highway access, and is a stone’s throw from the Orchid Golf Course. The launch is being planned for September.

Last but certainly not least, we have financial advisor Aaron Koo. He’s been the one keeping up with the Money Monday series on Beyond the Rhetoric. For example, you may have read his post on how to send your kids to school where he explains the registered education savings plan (RESP). Did you know that the government can supplement your savings plan with up to $2500 in free contributions?
