MDG drinking water target being met is cause for celebration

MDG drinking water target being met is cause for celebration | Whereisphotography | Scoop.it
Sanjay Wijesekera: This achievement shows that where there is a will, it is possible to truly transform the lives of hundreds of millions of people for the better.

 

The MDG (Millennial Development Goal) to cut the global population that does not have access to clean drinking water was cut in half, and five years ahead of schedule. The World Health Organization and the United Nations are very pleased with this achievement, but it is a timely reminder of the developmental problems of poverty and access that still exist. For example, 783 million people still do not have access to clean drinking water.  3,000 children die each day from diarrheal diseases (usually from bad drinking water and poor sanitation). Although some success should be celebrated, the world, in the currently constituted social, economic and political framework, still does not provide the most basic of requirements for a sizable portion of humanity.

36 High-Quality Flat Design Resources

36 High-Quality Flat Design Resources | Whereisphotography | Scoop.it
Flat design focuses on simple shapes, colors and typography to emphasize clarity and usability. These flat design UI kits will help you with your own projects.

 

In contrast to skeuomorphic design, flat design focuses on simple shapes, colors and typography to emphasize clarity and usability. It was a term coined by Allan Grinshtein of LayerVault in his post "The Flat Design Era," published last year. The release of iOS 7 proved flat design is no longer a passing fad, but rather a step forward.

The flatness of style means simplifying interface elements, removing extraneous elements and decoration — such as bevels, gradients and textures — to create a crisp, clean design that focuses on hierarchy.

4 TED Talks All Brand Storytellers Must Watch via @PostAdvertising

4 TED Talks All Brand Storytellers Must Watch via @PostAdvertising | Whereisphotography | Scoop.it

TED talks are a gold mine of knowledge. Because the TED website’s topics include not only technology, education and design (TED) but also business, science, activism, health, storytelling and everything in between, one can get lost on the site for days. A number of these short talks (most are around 20 minutes) revolve around storytelling. While they don’t necessarily address brand storytelling, they do offer insights that a brand could apply to its efforts to engage audiences through its brand story. I’ve gathered four talks I found particularly useful, and I’ve included a brand takeaway for each. Enjoy!...

Africa Must Prioritise Water in Its Development Agenda « Afronline – The Voice Of Africa

Africa Must Prioritise Water in Its Development Agenda «  Afronline – The Voice Of Africa | Whereisphotography | Scoop.it
Although African countries have been lauded for their efforts towards ensuring that people have access to safe drinking water in keeping with Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), they have nonetheless come under scrutiny for failure to prioritise water in their development agendas.

Thomas Chiramba, Head of Freshwater Ecosystems Unit at the U.N. Environment Programme (UNEP) in Kenya, told IPS that in spite of progress on the third component of MDG7 – halve the proportion of the population without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation by 2015 – water scarcity still poses a significant threat to sustainable development in Africa.

Attending the United Nations’ International Water Conference being held in this Spanish city from Jan. 15-17, he said that “there is too much focus on household water access indices and not enough on linkages between water and sustainable development.”

While there are now more people in Africa with improved sources of water and sanitation, experts say that this is not enough. The continent is still facing water scarcity, with negative implications for growth and health.

In view of the rapid and unpredictable changes in environmental systems, Chiramba said that unless Africa broadens its national and international water goals the region will find it difficult to remain economically resilient.

“Water is key to the agricultural and energy sectors, both critical to accelerating growth and development in Africa,” he added.

The theme of the Zaragoza conference is ‘Water and Sustainable Development: From Vision to Action’ and is at the heart of adaptation to climate, also serving as a key link among climate systems, human society and environment.

One of the main aims of the conference is to develop implementing tools, with regard to financing, technology, capacity development and governance frameworks, for initiating the post-2015 agenda on water and sanitation.

More than 300 participants representing U.N. agencies and programmes, experts, the business community, and governmental and non-governmental organisations have converged with the main aim of addressing water as a sustainable development goal.

“Although water goals and targets were achieved under the MDGs, the main focus was on Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), all geared towards poverty reduction,” said Chiramba. “But there was no explicit focus on addressing the sustainability aspect.”

Apple’s iOS 7 closely follows Google’s design principles

Apple’s iOS 7 closely follows Google’s design principles | Whereisphotography | Scoop.it

Tuesday, along with the announcement of two new iPhones, Apple officially unveiled its new mobile operating system, iOS 7. It comes with some major changes, the most apparent of which is a new look, devoid of skeuomorphs (such as notepad pages that look like paper notepads). It’s part of a broader shift towards “flat” design, a look—indeed a whole philosophy—that prefers plain, clear shapes instead of trying to make icons look like solid objects.

 

 

While it may be a major overhaul for Apple, and will doubtless influence many others, iOS 7 is not exactly the pioneer. In fact its design closely resembles that of a key rival—Google. Over the course of 18 months, starting in January 2012, some of the lead designers at Google laid out a series of principles for the company to follow in creating its own icons and logos. Some of those principles lie at the heart of Apple’s new aesthetic.

Rim Riahi's curator insight, April 25, 2013 7:10 AM

Today, we’re excited to share the 2013 State of Inbound Marketing Report. In this fifth anniversary edition, our largest survey ever, we asked 3,339 marketing professionals from 128 countries to share their perspectives on everything from strategy and organizational alignment to budget and channel management. Because of the breadth of survey respondents and depth of questions asked, some results may look different from what you're used to from past years. We're excited about how robust a data set we had to work with, and think these insights are the most revelatory on the current state of inbound marketing.

 

And here are 10 quick insights from the report, followed by 10 bigger takeaways that we found to be quite remarkable.
