UN recognizes Palestinian State in Historic Vote - NN

UN recognizes Palestinian State in Historic Vote - NN | Mapmakers | Scoop.it
The UN General Assembly has voted to upgrade Palestinians’ diplomatic status to a “non-member observer state,” thus implicitly recognizing a new Palestinian state. This comes despite strong opposition from Israel and the US.
“It's a great feeling to have a state, even if in name only,” a civil servant Mohammed Srour told in Ramallah. “The most beautiful dream of any man is to have an independent state, particularly for us Palestinians who have lived under occupation for a long time.''
Peter Hoeve's insight:

These are historic times. Over the last couple of years we've seen major changes in the political arena. Changing borders, changing leaders, and now even new countries on the rise. It's time to welcome these changes and build a new world order around them. New changes bring new chances for peace. Let's celebrate this week's wisdom of the UN.

Future Of Real-Time Information - @Dory_CarrHarris

   This report, developed for the United Nations Global Pulse team, identifies key trends emerging around the capture and transmission of real-time information streams. Communities and organizations can learn from the themes in PSFK’s Future of Real-Time report to create new solutions that support the care and well-being of the world’s population.

   Evolving data-rich technologies are providing organizations, governments and businesses with a rapid way to monitor the well-being of communities and individuals without significant infrastructure or spend. For organizations whose success is dependent on the ability to quickly recognize and react to high-risk situations, the proliferation of rapid access to “good enough” information is proving invaluable.
