East, West and Water Crisis Part I

Water - whether too little, excessively filthy or excessively misused - is quick rising as one of the best worldwide dangers. Furthermore, it's a confounded test to go up against, particularly given the inseparable connections in the middle of water, and the generation of vitality and sustenance.

            It's difficult to take a gander at the manageability of one part without the other - incorporated arrangements are essential yet thin on the ground and business has a key part to…

#Cyberpeacefare #Feasibility Study

Wonder if Carnegie and Santa Fe Institute might be interested in doing basic research/exploratory development feasibility study/computer simulation of Cyberpeacefare ?  The study would simulate a mix of social media sites  cooperating agents in an optimal timing routine to likely cause a CyberWorldPeaceTsunami.The cooperating agents would include the world's most famous leaders/celebrities (interfaith religious leaders (e.g the Pope); political leaders (e.g. POTUS); philanthropists…

A Common False Theme

"Wall St" is full of greedy unethical people.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Some of the most honest, decent, humble, hard working people I have ever met work in this industry.

#Cyberpeacefare #Complexity #Stuart Kauffman

"Next" says Kauffman "suppose that you come back  many years later, after the autocatalytic sets have been coevolving with one another and squirting strings at one another. The things that would still be around would be those things that had to evolve competitive interactions , food webs, mutualism, symbiosis. The things that you would see would be those that made the world they now mutually live in.  And that reminds us that we make the world we live in with one…

Today 550 Minors in Bahrain Will Not Attend School

This event marks the largest Shia massacre in…

What ultimately ensued was one of the deadliest Shia massacre in Iraqi history. With 1,566 Shia casualties and only one known survivor, June 12th lives in infamy. However, Shia Rights Watch aims to transform the negative stigma associated with the day into a day of remembrance and change. On June 12th,…

It’s a developing, not rich where economy, education is very low but today there are a lot of people who can change the situation here, I mean determined young people and NGOs who really care Georgian students.

Generally, some people think that the students who live in regions aren’t as developed and educated as urban livers but this is completely wrong. In my country there are a…
