It took me two and a half evenings to complete your un-put-downable book…it is a unique contribution to the appreciation of a life in Singapore. Thank you for having written it. C. V. Devan Nair, former President of Singapore.

Bought the book from Select this weekend and can’t put it down! It’s a great read! And so nostalgic for me—the good old days!

It is a remarkable story and so full of intrigue that it reads at times like fiction.Jonathan Burnham, Editor in Chief & President, Talk Miramax Books.

ThunderBall Films is successfully putting together the movie production of Escape from Paradise and has received a new LOI (Letter of Intent) from actress Bai Ling who starred with Richard Gere in the film Red Cross.

This includes a commitment from a CPA firm who does tax credit financing in Ireland, a possible location to film, as part of the package needed for investors – along with the CPA firm’s commitment to apply for and finance the tax credits if ThunderBall does shoot in Ireland and what portion of the budget they would provide.

Sarah Palin’s SAT Scores far below average?

Governor Sarah Palin's SAT Scores

Governor Sarah Palin's SAT Scores

The Scholastic Aptitude Tests (SATs) are given yearly to high school students as part of their entrance requirements for college.

Today we received an email with Sarah Palin’s purported SAT scores. Palin took the test back in 1982, and if these are truly her scores, she is not as far below average as one might think.

She ranks only in the bottom 39% of those taking the test.

In 1982, the average SAT score for women entering college were 496 for verbal, and 473 for math. Palin got 425 for verbal and 416 for math.

According to the report, that places her in the 39th percentile for verbal and 38th percentile for math. That means that, out of 100 students taking the SAT  test, Palin did as well or better than 39% of those taking the test in verbal and 38% in math.

That means that 61% did better than Palin in verbal, and 62% did better in math.

Even though Palin was far below the average, she still exceeded our expectations.

    Fake Palin SAT Scores Fool Left-O-Sphere

    MRD – You are most likely wrong. Dawn Eden in her blog attempts to say that the Palin SAT scores a photoshopped version of hers. This is an attempt at 15 minutes of fame by Dawn Eden. The first five digits of the social security number (the remainder are blanked out) are Palin’s. Other than Dawn Eden, there is no other reason to refute Palin’s SAT scores. Gawker.com mentions that the printed lines are not exactly straight. That proves nothing, other than it may have been printed on on old Honeywell, drum-type printer. We stick with the story – even though the results seem a bit high for Palin.
