Your World Poverty & Their Human Rights - Thomas Pogge

Your World Poverty & Their Human Rights - Thomas Pogge | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

   The most poor 2.8 billion human beings consume less than 2 percent of the global product, and are condemned to lifelong severe poverty, with all its attendant evils of low life expectancy, social exclusion, ill health, illiteracy, dependency, and effective enslavement (picture). The high-income countries, with 1.0 billion citizens (that's: we) have about 81 percent of the global product. With our average per capita income nearly 180 x greater than that of the poor we could eradicate severe poverty worldwide if we chose to try—in fact, we could have eradicated it decades ago. So, why wait?

 

   The annual death toll from poverty-related causes is around 18 million, 1/3 of all human deaths, which adds up to approximately 270 million deaths in 20 years. And, in spite of its magnitude, this problem is solvable. In this famous article of Thomas Pogge you can read the Why and How: http://bit.ly/SAgIC5 .

 

   In his YouTube (http://bit.ly/UgCLel) Thomas Pogge compares citizens who support the current international system that allows one-fourth of the world's population to live in abject poverty to passive Germans during the Nazi era. Citizens of the rich countries (that's: we) are conditioned, by the rationalizations of our economists, to downplay the severity and persistence of world poverty and to think of it as an occasion for minor charitable assistance.

Simple rules, complex behaviours: gamification and learning - Ben Betts

Simple rules, complex behaviours: gamification and learning - Ben Betts | Mapmakers | Scoop.it
One of the most common criticisms I see of Gamification for learning is its simplistic, behavioural approach when what we really need to foster is more complex, creative knowledge creation. Increasingly, I don't see a conflict.

I Follow Rivers met kopjes en mes - Triggerfinger (cover) - Via: @Giel3fm

Soms wordt een nummer beter door het te coveren. En heel soms wordt zo'n cover dan weer beter door het op te leuken. Dit was wellicht zo'n geval. Triggerfinger covert met de prachtige stem van Ruben Block het nummer I Follow Rivers van de Zweedse singer-songwriter Lykke Li met haar prachtige stem. En dan gaat iemand met zijn mes op twee kopjes tikken. Music in the making ... bij Giel.

What Happens In Your Body When You Eat Processed Foods - Stefani Bardin [Video]

What Happens In Your Body When You Eat Processed Foods - Stefani Bardin [Video] | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

   If there was any doubt left in your mind over the health devastating effects of processed foods, this may be the final nail in the coffin. In a video documenting what goes on in your body after consuming processed verse whole foods, small electronic devices reveal just how much your body struggles in digesting and utilizing processed foods laced with damaging ingredients.

   As video producer Stefani Bardin puts it: Ramen noddles are meant to survive armageddon, whereas homemade noodles are made to be eaten. If you have not yet done so, I encourage you to begin your own organic garden and purchase local, 100% organic produce for you and your family. It is very simple to begin organic gardening, and it can be very therapeutic for your mental health as well.

The Next 50 Years: Why I'm Optimistic Because Everything Will Be Terrible

The Next 50 Years: Why I'm Optimistic Because Everything Will Be Terrible | Mapmakers | Scoop.it

With everything rolling towards the abyss, our only hope for a bright future seems to be the Singularity, a technological transformation of what it means to be human.

But in a talk for TEDx Brussels, science fiction and horror writer John Shirley argues that there are really two Singularities — and yes, everything will be terrible in the short term. So why is he optimistic about the future of the human race? Read on.
