Dear All,

The year 2018 was a productive and exciting year and 2019 which just started looks like even more exciting... and I hope as productive as well. Focus WORLD PEACE, promoting my idea of World Peace In One Hour through four Human Passions that connects us all. ART, SPORTS, GASTRONOMY and FASHION. These four passions unite us regardless of skin color, religion, education, status in society, personal wealth or political alliance. After the progress with North Korea, suddenly my idea of permanent world peace doesn't sound as crazy anymore. Pay attention to a few things this year. 1. If you have a Parkinson's diagnose and love Ping Pong, there will be the ITTF Parkinson's World Table Tennis Championships from October 11-13 here in New York 2. If you play any of this 500+ instruments and want to play for World Peace in One Hour in the orchestra that has ALL the instruments of the world, apply here

I started 4 major projects in 2018.

February | Published an article in a scientific magazine The Journal of Global Health, titled World Peace In One Hour

April | Recorded live album with The Kings Street Big Band in Lancaster Pennsylvania, titled World Peace In One Hour. Sample song If i Had Another Life

May | Had a presentation in Sweden for the ITTF (International Table Tennis Federation) to organize a first-ever ITTF Parkinson's Table Tennis World Championships. And got it. The event will happen on 11-13 of October 2019, in Pleasantville, NY at the Westchester Table Tennis Center, our home for Ping Pong Parkinson 501(c).

Furthermore, next Wednesday February 27th 2019, we will celebrate our second anniversary of Ping Pong Parkinson [3P] and the 100th edition as well. The event will take place at our club Westchester Table Tennis Center in Pleasantville and will be covered by a New York TV station Channel 12.

Loved Italy!

The first day I arrived at Lago Di Garda, Italy, I did my salute to World Peace In One Hour at the beach. Locals looked in disbelief or better to say were intrigued by this.
