The reason Finland’s ultimate distribution of income is so equal is not because its great education system has made everyone receive high paychecks (an impossible task), but because Finland has put in place distributive policies that make sure its national income is shared broadly. In 2010, Finland’s tax level was 42.5 percent of its GDP, which was nearly double the tax level of the U.S. By strategically spreading that tax money around through a host of cash transfer and benefit programs, Finland’s high market poverty rate of 32.2 percent fell to just 7.3 percent. Its child poverty rate, which Finland focuses extra attention on, fell down to 3.9 percent. Overall economic inequality took a similar dive.

Today, the region is paying the price for the failure of top-down modernisation and the disintegration of artificial post-colonial national borders and frail political edifices. And with the evaporation of the great hopes pinned on the Arab Spring of the possibility of change through peaceful means and popular protests, extremism and violence have reared their head once more. But as disillusionment and despair descend on the region and tighten their icy grip on its throat, this deformed ghoulish child of crisis looks uglier, deadlier and more vindictive than ever.

Ahora que todas hablan de Malala Yousafza, hay que hablar también de Kailash Satyarthi, quien comparte el Nobel de este año con Malala. Satyarthi lleva 30 años luchando por la libertad de niñas y niños víctimas de esclavitud laboral y sexual en India.

Now that all they talk about Malala yousafza, we must also speak of Kailash satyarthi who shares the Nobel Prize in this year with Malala. Satyarthi takes 30 years of fighting for freedom of the girls and boys are victims of slavery and in the workplace sex in India.

' The serfdom by debt is a form of modern slavery, where the ordinary people lose the freedom of the most basic of movement, loses the freedom of choice. Girls and children are forced to work long hours with a little rest. More than five million children are born in such slavery in India. Its parents or grandparents could have asked for borrowing a sum little money to some terrateniente local y, as a result, generations and generations to come work for the same pattern. Are the prisoners, children prisoners.'

SO brazen! The Governor and other elected officials caused Philly's school budget crisis, and now they're expecting teachers to pay for it. This morning, Philadelphia's unelected version of a school board voted in a secret meeting to cancel the teachers' contract, with no notice or input from the teachers. If you can stomach it, here's an article full of their Shock Doctrine rationales and blatant double-speak.

Utopia is a combination of three greek words; Eu (good), Ou (not), and Topos (place). Utopia translated is “good not place”. It is important to remember, as a “not place,” it is impossible to arrive at utopia. The reason we imagine utopias is to provide a point on the compass that orients us on our travels. Without utopia, we’re lost – we are traveling without direction, guessing and hoping that we are moving forward. The purpose of utopia is not a destination, it is to give us direction so we can progress.

“Historians have spent a lot of time talking about whether African-Americans resisted. In forced migrations, survival was a kind of resistance in finding ways to stand in solidarity with each other and to write stories about themselves to say: This is a crime.”

“Southerners created numerous financial innovations that were essential to the process of the domestic slave trade. Slave owners put mortgages on slaves as they bought them. Britain had abolished slavery, but you can essentially buy slaves by buying one of those bonds. It shows the linkage.”

takes apart the myths that our society has created to make us more comfortable with our slave-owning past.”
His own journey into that past was intellectually satisfying but sometimes emotionally challenging, Mr. Baptist said. He recalled reading an interview with a woman whose enslaved mother toiled in the fields of a small Kentucky farm in the 1850s, sometimes returning home to discover that another child of hers had been sold away.

Once over lunch, Microsoft’s then-CEO Steve Ballmer asked Libin about his opinion of an acquisition. Libin’s answer: “I don’t think we’re big enough to buy you yet.”

Libin is unambiguous about both. Being a public company, he says, is part of Evernote’s mission. “We have a moral obligation to be a public company,” he said. “We’re asking people to trust us for a long time and that means becoming a publicly held company. I just don’t think we’re ready yet.” Translation: Don’t expect to be talking about an Evernote IPO before 2017 or so.
But don’t fall — at least not easily — for the steady steam of acquisition rumors. “I don’t want to sell the company,” he said. “It’s not a mathematical certainty, because if someone offered us some ludicrous amount of money, we’d have to take it to our investors and shareholders and evaluate it. … It’s not entirely up to me. But there’s no amount of money that would make me happy about it.”

we're funny. get in such a pickle about devices in last 5 yrs.. when last 100 yrs has messed with people even more. in the name of public and of public ed et al.
reminded of why i first fell in love w/danah's & dml/macarthurs work at first.. they were trying to figure out where interest was - rather than ban it.
