boston - best city in us to study in except.... those professors/richest alimni designing extinction- who's who use your searches

Entrepreneurial revolution & Metaverse update spring 2022 if there are particular MIT influencers at any stage it could be that john & jose & fady can help from knowing- i guess virtual events dont make local connects the same way real events do but multiple times I have been told https://mitsloan.mit.edu/faculty/directory/edward-roberts is one of the people who chooses what entrepreneurs to back (his office is a bit hidden away at sloan); until trump I had great hopes of schwarzman these days not sure but every studenr I met at  8 trips ro Tsinghua was great so hope one day students are free to connect human ai everywhere- if you ever go middle east the toyota franchise abdul latif is great bridge builder with mit; and tufts alumni reeta roy is amazing connector; I would love to see chinese arabic and english translation mediated the optimal way (i am unclear whether zbee has a special power on languages - see mother tongue something a lot of ai may do culturally wrong way round)

 love about boston

arctic circle youth summits especially if old style diplomats on 1960s news ancors drob by - some incredible alumni -eg the lady who runs mastercard foundation and a few chiense who chnged communism to community capitalism

whats not to love about this who coded poores girls bihggest cashless bank - www.bkash.com by mit legatum part of why i tell female stidnets they are much betetr off visiting brac than any colege classroom in usa

and of course there is berners lee still trying to keep the inetrnet free for everyine - maybe maolypics will invite him back to tokyo olympics- the bbc has shamed us all so many times in missing world services biggest stries let alone tbls' webs but suddenlt the bbc has found a green voice - bostn students should tune in then celebrate every green Belt Road they can map anywhere - you dont have to be chiense to ask did colonisation design ports and traisn so as to trap most people in poverty- how would you redesign peace on the seas and at every bodere railways cross with win-win exchanges

18 January 2013 is next opportunity for everyone to swarm and celebrate a whole state's students greatest community investment innovations with Dr Muhammad Yunus. Join us at Tuskegee Uni/Macon County, ALabama - area is one of the poorest areas of the United States. Many of the other communities in our state are also not very far on that list. Our communities need new ways of solving social problems and help fuel economic activities to get back on their feet.

On May 11, 2012, Prof. Muhammad Yunus (2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner and the Father of Microcredit) came to Tuskegee University as the commencement speaker. As you know, Prof. Yunus is only one of the seven people in the world who received Nobel Peace Prize, US Presidential Medal of Freedom, and the US Congressional Gold Medal. During his visit, he challenged the university and the community leaders to work together to change the name of the Tuskegee/Macon area from “One of the Poorest Areas” to a “Model Area” and use that model to help other communities. He also promised to work with our communities on this matter. As part of his commitment for our state, Prof. Yunus has been asking leaders from around the country to think about ways to get involved and help and visit the areas to get a first-hand understanding of the extent of the needs. Nobel Peace Laureate Yunus has also agreed to come to Tuskegee University on January 18th to hold a conference with local, state, and national leaders to discuss how he and others can help our communities. As you know, Prof. Yunus has been an advocate for the poor and promotes the idea of moving people out of welfare system and make them productive members of the society. He has successfully created many social businesses to solve local social problems and in the process created many jobs and fueled economic growth. We all can take advantage of his commitment to this state. We are inviting you to join this major initiative and be a “Partner” to take advantage of this opportunity to help communities. Together, we can discuss ideas and explore how to develop strategies to help all of the local communities in the State of Alabama and other states. We think that the State of Alabama could be a model state for the rest of the country in solving social problems by creating jobs.

what happens when all the resources of a state's education system rememebr to ask students on  how they would create jobs and help societies become labs for solutions of communities' greatest sustainability challenges ? - see North Carolina's first 60 days of progress on this journey

or for a more particular innovation challenge:   if just one day a year what would happen to a place like washington dc   (hotline 301 881 1655 ) if all the silos and conflicted parties that vesyed interests spin spent just one day listening to brightest youth ideas of how they would like to spend (some of) their lifetimes on challenges every community needs to relentlessly collaborate around to sustain better futures?

more on the sorts of projects students (case north carolina's25+ public colleges sept 2012) come up with when given a day to present to the world's number 1 pro-youth economist muhammad yunus  search other pioneering states such as georgia, oregon, alabama at http:/jobscompetitions.ning.com  or monitor the world's biggest live experiment when Tokyo listens to 12000 live youth on 30 january 2013

you can also blog with us on questions like- how many of youth's 10000 greatest job creators will see education as their main network of practice or how many of 10000 greatest job creators will see banking as their main collaboration network; you can also join the 2050 youth leaders we gave yunus books to in searches through http://yunuscity.ning.comqueries

30 years ago MITs fans of entrpeneurship started jobs for youth competitions and has became the world's number 1 job creating alumni network- impacts it has gravitated include

some queries to breakthrough bankers bullshit-

see valuetrue on why invetsments aiming to compound more than 9% are usually going to destroy banks

in service and knowledge econoy- developing a replicable franchise is most common chalenge however there are few frabchsies that have taken less than 7 years to effect be these the origins of junk food like mcdonalds or of something important for youth's futures like a clean energy franchise- howver the good news is that such knowledge franchsies once fully developed as suddtainable models can get on a moores law if they have a goal that unites all stajkehlders productivities and demands in a uniquely pursposeful way - by a moores law we mean that they start doubling progress of their goal every few years (3 maximum, sometimes even annually) - grameen solar installations is atypical case - started in 1996 it took nearly 10 yers before it got on a doubling  by end 2010 half a million solar units installed; by end 2011 one million solar units installed- similar progress with jobs created eg among viilage girls who provide the after-service

your country has no future in any innovation youth most need knowledge netorking age to invest in until economists and bankers stop lying about how sustainable investment dynamics work
