update now we biden unite
just wondering do you happen to know anyone near the epicentre of xprize-mail below looks quite fun idea of what to do in 2021- it seems to get in the middle of humanising tech races in ways i cannot find many people chatting about in soros public grant process which opens it portal for 14 days on dec 1

 i think now understand where/when soros first heard of sir fazle abed from 2004


basically soros sponsorship from 2000 of boston's jim kim/paul farmer to tackle how slow the fda and national centre of health were being on the combined threat of aids and tuberculosis led kim to fingd brac's bottom up health service- which became the gates health prize to abed of 2004

soros states he actually travelled xmas 2006 to be shown round bangladesh by fazle abed
by sept 2007 soros was hosting this event in new york promoting fazle abed
its a very interesting audio - inter alia it explains how soros found dean of medical school at colunbia university to chair launch of brac usa before lincoln chen took over this role- 
(brac had not been international to the refugee crisis caused after us invasion of afghanistan 2001-the aftermath as a refugee crisis seemed to abed similar in needing village soutions to bangladesh 2002) -- a bangladesh registered ngo cannot do aid abroad so bracusa, bracuk needed to become funders for international work and the neterlands became ops and total investment centre including where possible digital remittances)
complicated but it also explains how leadership moving parts of brac intelligence- and perhaps most of its biggest partnerships) moved ever away from the family and their ngo

there are at least 2 strange things on the soros side of this
while soros was the first person to fund village mobile experimements in  bangladesh1996 he never claims this even though this led the mit-quadir family from grameen to http://www.bkash.com the main model of digital banking for a billion unbanked and in spite of soros making his fortune by beating up on paper currencies greatest failures

although soros must of known abed's biggest futures project became coalitions of universities in 2011- neither of them really mentioned this when soros awarded abed the 20th and grandest open society laureate celebration budapest 2013 to the extent that i get the felling none of the 30 people most organising osun out of new york state  are aware of even a 30 minute module on sir fazle abed transformation of aid, health , education etc

the current pitch for million dollar grants mentions south asia as a specific focus but does not refer to brac

i sincerely hope the back channel plan    of soros edu coalitions is different - but then we come up with the difficulty that there are two other groups who are used to getting all of geroge soros quality time and money in new york- the economists who hate the idea that soros legacy may move to education insead of economists

the open society foundation whose top board excludes technologists, relies on botstein as its only working vice chancellor, and which while soros was under 90 probably retained his common sense - the more you look at the board the more peculiar it is Global Board  - i dont see anyone on it whose life has experienced how asians two third of world have developed since 1945 or how history before that had drawn up all sorts of borders suited only to most one-sided currency ever used to trade - pound sterling


oh well all errors mine alone - but singapore was always the first coalition partner abed hoped for from my notes
and for many reason singapore may be the only place i asia that trump foreign policy hasnt messed with just as government ai needed linking together if sdgs were ever to unite human beings

radical optimism published.
 
Good morning Sunday friends, thankful to have you with us again. Over the course of our shared history we have faced constant challenges, some of which have surely seemed insurmountable. But armed with tenacity, bravery and the very human trait of ingenuity we have forged ahead in ways that benefited us all. Be it Alexander Fleming discovering the first antibiotic or Rosa Parks holding a mirror up to ourselves - the committed, passionate human mind has proven to be the most remarkable tool for positive change. This year, like others before, we have been faced with a monumental challenge. One that has kept us apart from one another. The difference is this year, unlike others before, we as a global community united with one common goal. Covid-19 is a challenge, but we haven’t backed away from it or the obstacles it continues to create. We now have multiple vaccines for a virus we hadn’t even heard of a year ago, we are developing ways to reskill each other for the new economy that will unfold in the near future, the youngest designers amongst us are creating the next generations of masks for us all, and we are celebrating the innovators in our family who have achieved the remarkable. Thank you for sharing our radical optimism, thank you for supporting us on our over 25 years of impact, thank you for believing in crazy. Welcome to Sunday, welcome to The Bridge, your weekly oh-I’ve-eaten-way-too-much feeling of radical optimism.

soros was one of only two people in the world from 1950 on with deep practical knowhow of currencies  on both sides of the atlantic led him to see exponential consequences of pound and euro

  in the case of the pound he made his billions by betting against politicians trying to prop up the old empire's contraction;

 in the case of the eu he could  increasingly see  the euro was being designed to damage border countries inside or outside the eu- timing critical responses became critical in 1984 as the countdown to the fall of the berlin wall became clear at the economist

so he founded the open society and central european university with particular
 focus on these regions which included his birthplace hungary

notably, soros almost uniquely among worlds richest men is happy to put his money behind innovating whats right not necessarily success - entrepreneurship is about try try ry again but hopefully conceive small and once seen to work replicate big

from the mid 1990s soros was first to empower mobile experiments with poorest villagers in bangladesh- in this led to how some huge asian populations escaped west's subprime trap and innovated fintech for smes and poorest- the places empowering women to build sustiainable finance had preceded this with barefoot girls medics networiing- soros somewhat accidentally found this out when he made another do whats righ investment in jim kim and paul farmer 2000s work to change the global value chain round last mile health of those suffering from tb or aids/hiv

 lets return to  tour1a - to map hubs shaping the legacy as well as the currency the educational world that all 32= billion dollars of soros philanthropy =we start in ny region hs 21st c hime-space, go next to his birth region budapest and central european university connectos eg vienna, pass through middle east west europ south asia and africa as well as add in wherever virtual leafrogs to techs of health, finance and education rise eg boston

thee are many ways to tour with soros- from 2019 all his32 billin dollars of societal support are being integrated aroundOSUN Open Society University Networking. To hub this - natural starting points are:
USA
ny state - region spros lives and where he partners bard university which over more than 40 years has led arts and experiential learning refrmation out to usa
ny is where all global boards of soros open society coalitions are orchestrated as well as where bard tests early college formats-typically offering studemts of diversity a different bridge into college than old high scholl classrooms unchanged in usa for over a century
since start of 21stcentury wizards out of boston have connected the deepest philopantropic expoentials applied to health eg kim and famers workin haiti, peru, for soros in russia
mobile finance work hubbed out of mit where bangladesh becane the first lab with extra muslm investment funds eg legatum dubai, the toyota mid east franchise abdul latif- 
since 2019 phoenix - arizona state system to help lead online edu worlwide
east europe
vieena which since 2019 has been location of soros uni - central european
budapest his home town, where he hoped for 30 years schoars of celebrating central europe would linkin following fall of berlin wall and the opportunity for 19 countries to be reborn
east europe
warsaw always a priud city for its peopleindepene- home of solidatite coalitions thanks to the shipworker unionlead lech wlsa of dgansk
ukraine a country which from its rebirth soros understood as at risk of becoming a pawn between gernan doinated eu which needed russia's energy, russia which hated losing the odessa port, and more recently usa because of trumps version of supreme leadership
middle east
palestin al quids uni
also co-parners already mentioned out of bugai and with mid east toyota
rest europe
london was a home space for soros in 80s until he moved to new york- to this day his global board of open society and his bottom yp ineteonomics.net run out of new york featrure some of britain's most curius economists
berlin the main european branch of bard college
rome with gorbachev co-foundr of open society- gorbachev hubs out of the club of rome famos for its green netwrks to organise the annual summity of nobel peace laureates
asia
bangladesh -poverty worldsnumver 1 womens university aded univesty of brac and osun representing the worldslargest ngo partnerships - half a century of work by fazle abed on how coomunities triangularise theirow security round health, education, finance as well as asking global leaders to value local resiliencydirectly linkin bottom up dusaster services
africa - ashesi university of patrick awuah- accra ghana - supported by president ghana who co-chairs the un's top sdg panel- ashesi and bra are the only 2 educatin institutions recognised in world laureaes such as wise and yidan proze to have directly buily

he stared to make billions by betting against governments inflating by printing more paper rather than admit decline in value of curency necessary if people were to keep jobs- by 1972 the economist predicted that paper currency would pose the biggestexponential risk to globalisation being designed for big get bigger not communities blossom as more diverse. from late 1970s soros began being the first billionaire philanthropist of the post indstrial age- one of the greatleades of curriculum of entreprenurial revoltionublished in the economist 1976 and trnslated by a young romano prodi

soros was one of only two people in the world from 1950 on with deep practical knowhow of currencies  on both sides of the atlantic led him to see exponential consequences of pound and euro

  in the case of the pound he made his billions by betting against politicians trying to prop up the old empire's contraction;

 in the case of the eu he could  increasingly see  the euro was being designed to damage border countries inside or outside the eu- timing critical responses became critical in 1984 as the countdown to the fall of the berlin wall became clear at the economist

so he founded the open society and central european university with particular
 focus on these regions which included his birthplace hungary

notably, soros almost uniquely among worlds richest men is happy to put his money behind innovating whats right not necessarily success - entrepreneurship is about try try ry again but hopefully conceive small and once seen to work replicate big

from the mid 1990s soros was first to empower mobile experiments with poorest villagers in bangladesh- in this led to how some huge asian populations escaped west's subprime trap and innovated fintech for smes and poorest- the places empowering women to build sustiainable finance had preceded this with barefoot girls medics networiing- soros somewhat accidentally found this out when he made another do whats righ investment in jim kim and paul farmer 2000s work to change the global value chain round last mile health of those suffering from tb or aids/hiv

do we understand which country's leading pharma company has manufacturing and distribution agility needed to vaccinate the peoples- there may be more wealth in this scaling than the initial first vaccine if strain-related vaccines are needed to be 100% safe

notwithstanding this the motives of the first team to the vaccine winning line -ie their commercial partners motives - could become one of the greatest conflicts between nations of the decade - lets hope the winning team come from the heroic frontline culture of service not the big get bigger politico mindset that has so far depressed the 21st c at every turn

Enormous amounts of public money and resources poured into vaccine research and development have resulted in more than 150 COVID-19 vaccine candidates, ten of which are now in clinical trials. The most advanced candidate is AZD1222, first developed by researchers at the University of Oxford with public and philanthropic funds from CEPI and subsequently licensed to AstraZeneca. Last month, the UK Government boosted its national vaccine programme with £65·5 million towards AZD1222. In return, 30 million doses will be reserved for people in the UK by September, as part of an agreement to deliver 100 million doses in total. The US Government too set aside US$1·2 billion to secure 300 million doses of the same vaccine for use in the USA as part of the national programme Operation Warp Speed to accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of COVID-19 medical

BREAKING- WHAT ON EArTH DOES THE US TRIAD OF TIK-TOK, ORACLE AND WALMART MEAN - can this actually help american youth be smarter or is it one of trump's dead man walking legacies to a nation ravaged by his misapplication of tech and covid.


lesson 1 -there is a difference between the most vital tech for any goal- that saving potentially billions of lives by people historically left out but not necessarily making a lot of money- and the most spectacular science


index
bangladesh goals 1-6 pre-digital

china with bangladesh low tech  goals 1-6 and hitech to 2000 with japan,korea , asean isles

 goals 7-12 by sector bullet trains japan korea china
contsainerisation shipping japan korea asean islands , uae
cars pre-green usa japan korea
green cars too early to calll - also it seems no longer a national but an entrepeur led phenomenon - see eg musk

-----------------------------------------
somewhere in 2010s something exta happened - big data potentiallg chnanged how to do every sdg often for rich and poor at same time- eg to develop an app to trace covid all members of society need to share and the government or a blockchian not a corporate must be responsible for what level of privacy the nation demands while ubdersaning that actual tech innovation seem to emerge in ideally in coporately stewarded sme supply chains - perhaps why keretsu/chaebo can do what thewests gab between coroporate ang govenmnet has failed to apply event thechange economic models were known since 1976 entrepreneurial revolution 

in our first series of maps we go to places where solutions were most needed

it turns out from knowledge searched and networked out of bangladesh and south china with thanks to great americans lik borlaug, brilliant, brant that if you are in danger of starvation in a village with no electricity or communications then all of the fist 6 goals are related starting with goal 3 health, 2 hunger- you need last mile solutions from which villagers can build positive cash flow models which they reinvest in scaling solutions until billions of people are saved from dying of starvation or diseases like diarrhea which rich nations know how to solve at marginal if any cost

bangladesh s china goals 2,3 hungerhealth- markets village agriculture -eg 2 rice carrots poultry, milk
3 health solutions eg diarrehea, 10 basic diseases where knowho saves lives even if you have no electricity, immunisation, ending typhoid

see the work of azle abed and those barefoot medics and borlaug-inspired farmers 
once tens of thousands had positive cashflow models it made sense to desin financial services for their savings and those loans geared to thre positive cashflow microfranchises- this is the lesson bangladesh shared with the world from 1980 but it was often wrongly copied by operators who loaned with our supplying microfranchise solutions -sadly india never learnt the real bangladesh microfinance- thi8s is particularly ssad because while there are at least 6 branches to education, the one that was already known in the world was gandhi-montessori vilage primary- brac built on that as well as its origins as microfranchise trainer of asdult livelihoods- 

pre digital finance bangladesh
digital finance eg kenya china, bangladesh
cashless finance for poorest may have ben invented in africa - kenya mpesa and perhaps early trials with ibrahim's cellnet; pretty quickly cashleess money inspired both bangladesh with text phones and china jack ma with smart phones

faiuth integration - actually what translated all golden religions incluing christian and islam was franciscan scholare- but the asians who were not muslim was consciousness faiths - these overlap with love of nature/family that franciscan roots are bui8lt on - sadly it was the francisccan culture that the european union needed but refused to apply when prodi could have facilitated it- the reason is history's strange timing- with the fall of berlin wall europeans mostly agrre uniting germany was the priority- but later when germany was far the richest the eu never returned to franciscan and evoved fake austerity economic models instead- as you can see goal 5 equalty gets complicated - its only sustainable if its done to end undeclasses withn borders and across borders- ironically this was the 1950s thesis of manmohan singh at cambridge but when he became pm in india the bureaucracy blocked his deepest efforts to end poverty whil applauding hius view that it was beyond time for india to open up most of its industries

goal 6 santation including water ultilities
again the most primitive but essential soliyuition app's in bangladesh is pi latrines; in terms of sustaing clean drinking water there aree about 100 digffereny geonomic croses from deserts with too little to monson places who go from glut to drought unless water can be stored to triply complex places like bangladesh which at the bottom of a river basin of other nations on the contient has ended up with arsenic infected water; again biug city's us of water for industrial purposes conflicts with vilagers needs for clean water- the integrates sdg solution will need to depend on goals 13-16b going beyond carbon energy and in other ways ending externalisation of dirt onto mother nature 

gols 7-12 are about equitable sharing of markets/infrastructures betwen rural and city as tech itself can change everythin
start in japan from 1962 then korea taiwan hk singapoe - all these places learnt smart engineering - ie postbindustrial serive markets where wirkers lives mattered even as they increasingly improved machine tools

    COVID-19 and Internet Governance: Where do we go from here?

    As the COVID-19 virus continues to spread throughout the world, it is clear that the Internet has played a critical role in the pandemic response and our ability to proceed with our lives. We have witnessed an acceleration of services, applications and essential aspects of life that rely on internet access; a reality for which we were not totally prepared and necessitated urgent responses. This raises important questions about Internet and its governance: How do we balance a response to urgent needs without sacrificing the benefits of multistakeholder input and analysis?  What are the risks? Are there other approaches and models that offer more effective means of guiding and regulating Internet use and development? Is Internet governance itself ready for an evolution or revolution?

        Jon Husted is the 66th and current Lt. Governor of Ohio, a position he has held since January 14, 2019. As Lt. Governor, Husted oversees the state’s economic development efforts through a series of initiatives designed to strengthen Ohio’s workforce, promote innovation and entrepreneurship, and reduce regulatory burdens on job creators.

        During the COVID-19 global pandemic, Lt. Governor Husted’s primary role has been to manage Responsible Reopen Ohio, the plan to safely open the state’s economy as society learns to live with the coronavirus.

        Lt. Governor Husted is the founding Director of InnovateOhio, which is an initiative to promote Ohio as the most innovative, creative, and entrepreneurial state in the Midwest. Using technology, InnovateOhio also works across state agencies in order to implement modern solutions that improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness of state services.

        As Director of the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation, Lt. Governor Husted strives to connect Ohioans with the education and training they need to open new career opportunities. The offi ce does this while also promoting efforts to ensure our workforce is prepared to power the needs Ohio’s current and prospective businesses and industries. Under his direction, the Governor’s Office of Workforce Transformation has launched programs aimed at ensuring every high school student has the chance to graduate either college or career ready, while giving businesses and current workers the ability to upskill for changing industries through TechCred. The Lt. Governor is also helping to support industry-sector partnerships across the state in order to support successful local efforts to solve regionally-specific workforce issues.

        Upon taking office, Lt. Governor Husted overhauled the Common Sense Initiative (CSI-Ohio), whose mission is to look at all new and renewing state regulations through the eyes of Ohio’s businesses and job creators. Husted improved processes at the regulation-cutting initiative in order to clear a major backlog of rules, and is now working to make it more proactive in supporting job creation and regulatory reform in the state.

        Prior to being elected Lt. Governor, Husted served as Ohio’s Secretary of State where he presided over elections in the critical swing state as well as oversaw Ohio’s business fi ling center. During his eight-year tenure in the offi ce, then-Secretary Husted used technology to revolutionize the way businesses and entrepreneurs interact with the state government. The efficiencies improved customer service and reduced the average time to register a new business from days or even weeks to just a few hours.

        As a result of Husted’s work cutting costs in the Secretary of State’s Office, he was able to pass that savings along to Ohio’s businesses and job creators by cutting the fee for starting and maintaining a business by 21%, a move that made Ohio the least costly state in the Midwest for entrepreneurs. For the remaining two years of his term, Secretary Husted ran the office entirely without tax dollars and requested to return his remaining $10 million surplus to the treasury before leaving office.

        Husted began his public service in the state legislature, serving in both the House and Senate, where his colleagues twice unanimously elected him to serve as Speaker of the House. As Speaker, Husted shepherded what was hailed as the most conservative state budget in decades, which included what was at the time, the largest income tax cut in Ohio’s history.

        Lt. Governor Husted earned both a bachelor’s degree in education and master’s degree in communications from the University of Dayton where he was a member of the 1989 Division III National Championship Football Team and named an All-American Defensive Back. Of all his responsibilities, Lt. Governor Husted considers his most important role as that of husband to his wife, Tina, and father to Alex, Katie, and Kylie.

        The next generation of wireless service, or 5G, is the focus of much attention and debate around the world. But while much of the focus may be on faster smartphones, 5G has gone from the subject of tech blog chatter to an essential aspect of foreign policy and international diplomacy. As the United States and China wrestle for global leadership in technology, how will national security and international standards influence the development of 5G networks? And how could virtualized and open networks impact the rollout of the Internet of Things—from connected cars to connected coffee makers—as billions of more consumer devices come online?

          Should online platforms moderate and be accountable for user-created content?

          Wednesday, July 22

          4:30pm – 5:45pm EDT

          US law (Section 230) holds users accountable for the content they post online, rather than shifting that responsibility to internet platforms hosting that content. This law has enabled the user-created content that fuels the educational, professional, commercial, entertainment, and social networks online today. Yet this liability framework is now under fire. Some say social media platforms don’t moderate user content strictly enough, while others complain that moderation restricts their free expression online. This panel examines competing pressures on platform content moderation, and changes that could address concerns without increasing liability to the point where only the largest online platforms can afford risks of hosting user-created content and commerce.
