What's it called in org lit? When no one takes responsibility for making any call? So it keeps getting referred out & up authority chain?

"It was the first time I brought an invention to school to show a teacher," Mohamed tells WFAA in an interview taped in his bedroom, where circuits and wires sit on shelves alongside basketballs and footballs.

So, there's a hackathon tomorrow morning that I'm going to be attending, on the refugee crisis start Farringdon

He has a strong belief in dialogue as an alternative to war - talked about the need for peace between PKK and Turkey, Palestine and Israel. 
beyond convo...something else to do - ness
Also unclear on counter-terrorism: seems to think ISIS can be fought by 'economically isolating them', but they're largely self-funded.
see why convo alone won't work.. in equity ... an isolation assumption
In sum: Corbyn is very strong on human rights, dialogue, self-determination for oppressed groups. Weak on Syria, unconvincing on ISIS.

Why we need 12 school years for every child
oh my.
Together, we can afford it. And it will buy us a better world.
If we want a safer, more prosperous and equitable future for our own kids, we need to give all children 12 years of school. At this point, the SDGs are mere ambitions on paper. We now need to spend the next 15 years to make good on them, and unlock the promise they contain for every girl and boy.
oh my.
w 39 bill and compulsory 12 yrs of Ed .. lovely.

The ad industry had twenty (!) years to design better ads. It's still basically doing annoying digital billboards. It dug its own grave.
much like Ed, politics.. et al
