Today TIME pays tribute to the trailblazers, visionaries and cultural ambassadors who defined a nation: The 20 Most Influential Americans of All Time.
Pictured: Professor Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955), mathematical physicist at home in 1925.
He was the greatest mind and paramount icon of our age, the kindly, absentminded professor whose wild halo of hair, piercing eyes, engaging humanity and extraordinary brilliance made his face a symbol and his name a synonym for genius: Albert Einstein. Gold Coast Hotels
This list comes from the new TIME book The 100 Most Influential People of All Time, which profiles spiritual icons, leaders, explorers, visionaries and cultural titans throughout human history.:) Myanmar Hotels
We just hope that wars can stop and funding can then be spent on looking after people who need to eat and be clothed.

“This week’s Time magazine, as you see from that front page, describes military suicides as an epidemic. I would like to take $10 million out of a $5 billion fund in this amendment to go beyond the funding for existing suicide prevention services, and toward modifying the culture that keeps some from seeking help. We must also note that any progress in suicide prevention will be fleeting if we don’t focus on reducing the stigma associated with seeking psychological health services among our active-duty people.”
— Rep. Jim McDermott

Check out these hot Myanmar Girls who are playing great music and bring awareness to how good Myanmar is. Great stuff!!!!
This is ‘Tiger Girls,’ Myanmar’s first all-girl band which sings songs about freedom in a country in the midst of a political and cultural shift. They can’t play in clubs (lest the ‘Tiger Girls’ be dubbed prostitutes) so theirs is a world of radio stations and private events. Their plan? “To push the limits of the country’s censorship board,” Heidi Mitchell writes on the Beast, ”which regulates virtually everything: costumes, lyrics, dance moves, videos, album titles.” These girls are badass! Team Tiger Girls right here.
From our Neighbours to the East, Lets hope the potential fall out of Kim Joong does not affect the push forward Myanmar is having at the moment.
