The Value of Breaching The Digital Divide

Modern International Affairs analysis is often putting forth the perspective that increased access to technology will always benefit populations. This is true, but why? A 2011 Mckinsey Global Institute Report “Internet Matters: The Net’s Sweeping Impact on Growth, Jobs, and Prosperity” found that in the countries studied (mature economies) the internet accounted for 10% of GDP growth over the past 15 years. Now, internet connectivity has exploded since 2011, and there are a …

The Chinese Communist Party: victim of its own successes

While I was holidaying in Puerto Rico, I made it a point to visit the world’s largest radio telescope – the Arecibo Observatory. However, I was quickly corrected by my local host, José, who informed me that China had already surpassed that feat, completing their own “world’s biggest” radio telescope in July. Indeed, as much of the Western world suffered setbacks in 2016, whether through the failure of…

The promises/opportunities&dangers/pitfalls of the New Year are before us.  We are culpable for what we do/fail to do for: ourselves, humanity, common good, common home, planet sustainability. The nuclear cloud threatens us all ! We must not be indifferent.  As Abe Lincoln advised us: "You can't escape responsibility of tomorrow by avoiding it today." Let us all pledge to realize/utilize our Personal Cyber Power for World Peace and Planet Survival in 2017.    CyberPeaceGadfly

Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable :Educate, Go Local, And Collaborate!

Few months ago in a seminar that I’ve attended, I heard a lecturer say, “Disaster becomes a disaster when there are humans involved in it.” Several earthquakes and volcano eruptions happen every day around the world, and it seems that only few of them receive a true public spotlight. Always, news of earthquakes and volcano eruptions happen to have thousands of civilian casualties, with its number increasing as media’s live coverage continues day by day. Have we ever paid attention on natural…

Comparing Cost- Fossil Fuels v.s. Renewable Energy

Austin Schiano

UN Sustainability Professional

Carnegie Council New Leaders Member

It is clear as with any major innovation, that the global economies shift toward renewable energy will not be due to a moral imperative but rather an economic incentive. Now, despite the disdain many of us will hold at this claim, we can take comfort in the fact that renewables are becoming increasingly efficient and cost…

Same as it Never was

Nationalism, much like the United States of America, seems to have a hard time existing within a state of moderation. They both seem to come with fine print inscribing, “all or nothing”. Nationalism seems to have been custom…

THINK ABOUT THIS!

Being a teenager,the word ethics often makes me scrunch my face and shy away from the issue simply because it sounds overwhelming and obviously adultlike. Just like the word coleslaw,one needs to get their heads out of the clouds and look closely at what could be if one really took interest and then discover the sweetness.

Taking interest in ethics and specifically global ethics was a huge step in the right direction for me as it enabled me see the world,people and relations in a…

#Cyberpeacefare #Peace #Adlai E. Stevenson

"Peace is not the work of a single day, nor will it be the consequence of a single act. Yet every constructive act contributes to its growth; every omission impedes it. Peace will come, in the end, if it comes at all, as a child grows to maturity - slowly, imperceptibly, until we realize one day in incredulous surprise that the child is almost grown." Adlai E. Stevenson

IS NATIONALISM AN ASSET OR HINDRANCE IN TODAY’S GLOBALIZED WORLD?

As long as there is an existence of race, religion, culture, nation, etc, people will always have growing instinct that craves for nationality. The feeling of self-worth prompts every member of a society to see themselves as equal partners in pleasure and regards, in justice and humiliation. In their feelings of nationality with the romance of patriotism, there grows a political ideology which is called…
