"Finding Our Place" by Kristof Starkk, 2/13
Welcome to the sixth issue of +eHealth4u!
We are finding our place in this world. I have been in talks with a few people to fill some of the vacancies in the paper and to give relief to the writers that already write for the paper.
I'm hoping that (by the next issue or two?) we can have a purely entertainment article or comic running for your pleasure. If anyone wants to submit one-time articles it would be greatly appreciated. Furthermore if you want to write every week, more power to you!
There is an increasing trend in the amount of players seeking requests from us! This is good! Our supplies are doing well thus far, but I could see needing more donations a 2-3 weeks down the road, depending on the influx of new applicants.
I would also like to take this time to thank our many generous Benefactors! If you use our service, please feel free to drop a thank you note to someone from the list of Benefactors below!
Thanks for taking time to read this week's eHealth4u!
P.S. I recently read an article that sums up the kind of people that make this game great. To quote the intro, "The people of eRepublik have been so awesome I have decided to write them a poem."
Check out Maxwell Hay's Ode To Joy.

BEGINNING RULES by weasel2
As in all things eRep, subject to change.
Do not strength train with gold for now. Never buy a Shooting Range training facility.
Do not sell your gold for cash at this time.
The Shooting Range has the worst and the Climbing Center the best gold/strength ratio.
Save your gold for buildings you must buy to upgrade your Town Center, like the aluminum mine.
When you have an established income and can afford it, revisit the cost/benefit of gold training.
Beginning Rules complete

eHistory Column - 1/29
by eHistorian J. C. Magan, eHST
"As mentioned in the previous issue of eHealth4U, Dio Brando was not only the first president of Pakistan, but a religious leader. This week we’re going to look at some quick insights of his creation; of Dioism!"
The Dioist belief began to spread when The Book of Dio was first being published in the mid-1st eRep-century. It chronicles the actions and beliefs Dio spread as he traveled through Pakistan, as recorded by the two prophets Altnabla and William Walker. A copy of the text can be found in every town house in Pakistan. For your convenience, we’ve attached a copy to this issue if you’re interested!
In the first chapter, the importance of sand is established when it is told that Dio was born from the sands of Pakistan. Sand is said to be the material that all humanity was created from, therefore it is a holy icon to the Dioists of the eWorld. It is believed that because Dio was one of the first humans to be born from the sand, he is able to communicate and attack via the holy grains. Legend has it that Dio could burn his enemies if they were splashed with sand, even when he was galaxies away. Today, sand is used as an energy source because of its silica content, and is also a main ingredient of Dioist delicacies. One popular folk tale is “The Littlest Sand”.
“It tells a tale of a grain of sand who is ridiculed by his dune for being a 'half-glass'. In the stories resolve, the grain becomes a hero by leaping into the mouth of a starving Dio, thus restoring his hit-points. It is a story used to inspire Pakistanis to the fact that even the smallest Child of Dio, can do wonders for his country and his God.” -(Summary from the back cover of “The Littlest Sand”)
The branches of Dioism include Lidoxan Dioism and Yusuphist Dioism, who though religious texts, are depicted as the life savers of Dio. Some Dioist would classify themselves within these branches to honor the holy actions that the two heroes have bestowed. Another branch is the Theocracy branch, and it differs the most from the other two branches due to its grand varition of the Dioist theocracy; instead of placing faith in religious figures, Theocracy places faith in the political world.
Dio has left the mortal life, and now is said to live as the all powerful, Holy Emperor. Within his Chapel in the sky, he surrounds himself with his wives and husbands as he lives his life loving every being of the eWorld.
