Dear Alumni and Friends,
One of the great things about the work of alumni relations is the opportunity it provides to express appreciation and thanks to the wonderful alumni and friends of UTS. And words of thanks and appreciation really do make a difference. Dr. Masuru Emoto researched the effect of words, ideas and music upon water and the results are clearly shown in his incredible photographs (see them at:
The patterns in the molecular structure of water exposed to kind, positive words are beautiful and harmonious whereas water exposed to negative words produced, well, ugly blobs - to put it politely. Our bodies are about 70% water, as is the earth, and Dr. Emoto concludes that we can effect our health and the well- being of the planet through the expression of thanks, gratitude and appreciation. Which means when we value, honor, uplift, encourage and express appreciation for each other, we are contributing to each other's health and the building of a kinder, safer world. Every thought and word does have a ripple effect. So, we want to take this opportunity at the end of the fiscal year, to thank all who have supported UTS in this past year through their time, talents and treasures. A complete list of donors will be published in the September E- Cornerstone.
love and peace, Gillian Corcoran
PHONATHON - Developing connections of the heart
Connections of the heart. Yes, email is great, but I still get a warm fuzzy in my heart when I actually hear someone's voice on the other end of the phone. Hopefully you'll feel the same way when we call you in September during our annual phonathon. Looking forward to talking with you!
