(America): When Slots For Illegals Are Eliminated, America Will Have More Slots For the World's Best, Brightest, and Exceptionally Talented To Immigrate and Renew America.

How should America treat it's illegal immigrants? The Biden pick for Health and Human Services nominee wants illegals to be given Medicaid.

And this is what we think is wrong with American immigration, and one that should be overhauled. Australia for instance, processes Illegals, assylum seekers and refugees in the far off island of Papua New Guinea.

In America meanwhile, illegals are being processed at the border patrol, and it gets even worse, in the Biden administration, assylum seekers will be allowed to travel to the United States as they await the results of their assylum application.

This Biden administration move in championing for illegals, assylum seekers, and refugees has made immigrant caravans all the way from Africa, Honduras, and Haiti begin to travel by foot to the United States border.

When there are so many illegals in America, the burden will be on the American taxpayer to provide them with food stamps and unemployment benefits. Besides, illegal immigrants decrease the slots for the legal immigrants that the United States truly needs. It's why we think that immigration should be overhauled, to increase slots for the best and brightest, and those with exceptional talents that will prepare America for the next phase of growth in the industrial internet of things (IIoT), smart hardware, Fintech, carbon materials, and such fancied fields, which America is struggling to hold on to the global lead.

China and India alone produce two Thirds of the world's PhDs, China has two million engineers. That's what's at stake for America. When the illegals are eliminated, the slots for H1-B Visas, how the most talented foreign workers will be increased ten fold, of course with safeguards so that large businesses cannot use the H1-B Visa as an excuse for paying poor American workers low salaries.

To be black and be a capitalist, and a Republican, is not an anomaly. An incompatibility sort of.

We wish golfing legend Tiger Woods quick recovery in the Los Angeles accident. But here is our proposition regarding the incident.

The next chapter in the American Civil rights movement is the availing of business capital and entrepreneurship to blacks and Latinos. African Americans don't have have to make wealth in their " traditional strong fields" like sports and entertainment".

They can make wealth solving the toughest challenges that plague America and the world. They can wildly be successful creative genius entrepreneurs. The job of diversity and inclusion is supposed to make blacks be included in the former white spaces in powerful jobs, but blacks shouldn't be a tick in the box. An affirmative action hire or elite college admittee. A racial justice issue.

Moreover, the smartest blacks now don't attend historically black Colleges like Howard or Morehouse but now attend the Ivy League and Uber Private colleges like Harvard, Duke, and Yale, then go on to work in Wall Street, representing a brain drain on the African American community when a struggling black business would have needed their talents.

And since small businesses are the primary employers, it means all this black talent that is being lost to Wall Street and Silicon Valley as a diversity and inclusion issue, an affirmative action hire is going to waste in that the kith and kin these bright black youngsters left behind have no businesses to hire them.

And I know Booker T Washington, a Republican by ideology, the first African American to visit the White House, was shamed for acting white when he said that rather than confronting white supremacists directly, blacks should aim for great careers and entrepreneurship. But nothing could be further from the truth.

And another African American leader, Marcus Garvey, said blacks fail because they don't have a capitalistic system that support them. He was wealth shamed for having a publishing company, media house, real estate and a ship which he hoped would transport all black people back to Africa.

But essentially, to be black and to be capitalist shouldn't be an opposite dichotomy. Likewise, to be black and be Republican should also likewise not be an incompatibility. Because where has the freebies of the Democrats taken blacks? They are at the exact same place where the slave emancipation proclamation left them. Someone said the biggest threat of a black is a white liberal, because they act so sweet without really meaning it, and it couldn't be further from the truth.

Social Byte: Is Colorism deep among people of colour?

The simple definition of colorism is that it's where members with a lighter skin among people of color are treated better than their darker skin colleagues of the same race.

Although it's most prevalent in the black race, it's not confined to it alone. An advert in a French billboard paints a successful French parent as one where a successful black male is married to a biracial or light skinned black.

In India, you wouldn't know that half their population is darker skinned from watching Indian Bollywood movies as all the acting gigs go to the light skinned Indians and not the untouchable dark skinned dalites. 

This has of course spawned a lucrative bleaching creams as blacks, especially females want to be light skinned and upgrade their social status. 

Does Writing Really Pay That Much. Can it Be a Full Time Career, Especially in Africa.

The joke is that one of the ways for you to die a poor man or woman for that matter is to take up writing as a full time career. As a weekly columnist for the Star Newspaper in Kenya, the third in the market daily, I got paid $30 per weekly column of 350 words. Granted, one could say that pay is too much for just 350 words. But it is the quality that matters, not the word count. And I knew I had worked on my craft well, and so I felt shortchanged.

Again, I wrote a 12 page educational advertorial pull out for the same Star Newspaper Kenya, I got paid $100, even as they made $50,000 from the same pull out in advertisements.

Coincidentally, one of their former radio girls come come Group Marketing Manager responsible for those advertisements in my pull out is also dabbles up as a motivational speaker and goes around telling young impressionable girls that you have the same 24 hours as me, or as Bill Gates. So, why doesn't she start with paying people their fair dues first?

I had done much research and knew that as a weekly Columnist for the Telegraph, Boris Johnson, the current Prime Minister of Britain, was getting $250,000 a year pay, that is $5,000 a week, just for scribbling a few quality words a week.

I also knew of a weekly technology columnist in The Wall Street Journal that got paid a million dollars a year for a weekly column, that is $20,000. I'm interested in that especially because I did Mechanical Engineering for my Bachelors Degree.

So, why doesn't writing pay in Africa. The reason is simply we haven't professionalised the creative scene, that is writers, singers, actors, et al. It is still a buyers market. They set the price. We follow along. And that needs to change if our kind is going to take up writing as a full time career rather than a side hustle.

Is it ethical for recruitment firms to supply your CV to potential employers without the job seekers consent?

 

While recruitment firms take the job of filling in a job vacancy from the Human Resources department, their core revenues comes from selling CVs to potential employers. They sell as much as ten top level CVs on a good day. But is really ethical for these recruitment firms to forward your CV to an anonymous employer without you getting involved.

The remarkable run of the creative genius seems to have to come to an end with election of Trump. Now it's time for the middle of the road guys to have their day.

 

While the peasant has had her day in America, while the artisan technician with pencil on ear has had her day, while the skilled noble has had her day, while the precision expert consultant has had her day, it is the talented creative genius that has had a great and remarkable run in America. From the creative genius trillionare entrepreneur, to the actor, singer, musician, footballer, NBA player, researcher, inventor, innovator, writer, poet et al.

However, all these creative genius people were imported to America by way of Immigration, but now Trump has reigned hard on immigration legal or otherwise, which means if Trump America is sustained, then the middle of the road but solid guys will have their day too in America. 

In that case then, America will continue to rock but it will be a PWC three layered professional workaholic economy than a creative genius economy of the six percent lifting everyone up.

While every Professional thinks what they need is a career mentor, what we really need are career sponsors.

 

While everyone desires having a career mentor, what we should really have are career sponsors. A career mentor means the relationship is one sided and the mentor strength is the only one being tapped into.

However, a career sponsor is someone who isn't too far out of your league, say more than five years ahead of you. She can connect you to the right opportunities and importantly, contacts. 

But you as the one being sponsored also need to reciprocate by for instance aiding her have a great social media presence. Because true friendship is about give and take.

Trump has upstaged "Keeping up with the Kardashians" as the new reality TV king.

 

Reality TV shows such as Big brother, which depicts real life interactions between housemates living in the same house, is all the crase these days. With "Keeping with the Kardashians" certainly flagship programming for reality TV.

 It's also in politics with Trump being 24 hour reality TV star and makes news with his every tilt of head, his intonation, being breaking news. 

A great career is an intersection point of what you are good at, what you love doing, and the market demand for your talent and passion.

 A great career is an intersection between what you are good at, your skills and talents, what you love doing, your passion, and what the market is willing to pay you, otherwise even poetry would be a chosen career path.

For those blessed enough to have all three of the above levers a part of their job, there are no days, no nights, no weekends, no holidays that can dampen their working spirit. And they carry humanity on their shoulders. Monday mornings are as productive as Friday afternoons.

The true middle class jobs in America is 20 million. The rest are in dead end jobs and they are essentially in an overrated Third World country.

 

88 percent of humanity is in jobs rather than careers. There work is fairly transactional without the incorporation of their mind and soul. And that's what the economist measures.

 She doesn't measure happiness, fulfillment, or inner satisfaction. Hence, 96 percent employment that every economist waits for in the monthly jobs report is a total hogwosh, for even the most life sucking of a job is counted. 

By this count, the true middle class jobs, in America is 20 million. The rest 300 million Americans are in dead end jobs and are in overrated Third World country.

Despite the rhetoric anti Chinese stand by Trump administration, truth is, Sino-America relationship remains the largest venture capital in the world.

 

The relationship between China and the United States is the largest venture capital partnership in the world. Due to it's rock bottom labour costs, China produces products courtesy of American capitalists investment into China, and then the American consumer buys these products, and the trillions dollars fortunes made from exports to US enables China to buy up the debt of America allowing America to escape the doomsday scenerio where it will have no one buy it's debt forcing it's economy to collapse like a house of cards.

Other than Democrat and Republican, there should be a third choice for voters, " None of the Above" so disillusioned voters get their message heard.

 

Here is a far flung idea. Instead of just two candidates, Democrat and Republican, being on the ballot box, wouldn't it also be good to have a third slot on the ballot, "None of the above."

And then when "None of the Above" gets more votes than Republican and Democrat, the whole election is nullified and a new vote arranged. This could be easy on paper but harder on practice but it could give disillusioned voters on both sides of the aisle something to look forward to actually go and vote.

With Trump, Hillary Clinton below the belt fight in the 2016 election, will America ever regain it's liberal democracy mojo it lost in 2016.

 

How did America get to this, "I will only declare my tax records as soon as Hillary Clinton makes public the 30,000 deleted emails as Obama's Secretary of State? 

And this is the liberal democracy America wants to export to the world? Isn't that a joke taken too far? Clearly, populism is now the new normal in the governance structure of America as well as the world. 

Diversity and Inclusion movement in America must champion class inclusion as much as they champion race inclusion.

 

Diversity and Inclusion officer is now the fastest growing job in the world. With every America company wants to turn the corner on systemic alienation of black and brown people in the mainstream America life. 

But American essayist William Deresiewicz in his widely acclaimed essay, "Disadvantages of elite education" argues that this diversity is only about race. 

In terms of living standards, the beneficiaries of diversity and inclusion in major American corporations are as previledged as the white males. 

And in any case, the beneficiaries of diversity and inclusion efforts in elite American universities are previledged children of African immigrants rather than descendants of slaves. Creating a soft underbelly amongst these two groups of blacks.

Instead of a chemotherapy in every village and precinct in the world, let's address the problem from first principles and have an organic farm in every village/precinct in the world.


Instead of having a chemotherapy in every village and precinct in the world, what if we instead had an organic farm in all the world's villages and precincts. 

Because if you think about it, we are ingesting chemicals with every meal we consume. The spray of the vegetables finds it's way to our stomach. 

The chemical fertilisers also find their way to our body. Not to mention the harzadous gases from the trendy greenhouse tomatoes. 

Then you get a feeling that the modern person is literally a walking laboratory, and why today's generation ages at a very fast rate.

Exploring perhaps the hardest undergraduate course in the world. The Harvard "Math 55."

 While MIT is known as the preeminent engineering school of the World, sorry Caltech is for future Physics professors. But Harvard still call the shots on pure sciences and Math.

There is a particular course at Harvard that a legendary mystique proportions to it. That is the Harvard "Math 55". It's pilgrims say this a whole undergraduate Math program condensed in one semester. However, sceptics say that this is just a summary of college alegbra probably up to postgraduate introductory algebra. 

However, around 2012, the depth of Math 55 was whittled down to a series of Yes No straightforward equations. After complains from the Harvard Careers department that the D in the academic transcript would see their students struggle to get consulting jobs at McKinsey or Bain & Capital. 

If November 3rd election produces different winners for the popular vote and electoral vote, this will be death of liberal democracy as we know it.

 

If the November 3rd election in America produces two winners for the popular vote and electoral vote(the mandated winner), then it will mean America gets to be ruled by the minority once again, and this could mean the death of liberal democracy vis a vis an emergence of a full blown constitutional republic. 

Creativity and innovation is the stock in trade for the entrepreneur. Money is the stock in trade of the businessman. They both need each other.

 

Entrepreneurship is about bringing new products and services to the market, while business deals with the nitty gritty of how to make money off these new products and services. Too much entrepreneurship could see one be the richest poor person, while too much business orientation will see wheeler dealing, tax avoidance, heavy marketing spend, and employee layoffs being instituted for the company to grow. 

Instead of baby showers, let's have small business showers instead.

 

Instead of having baby showers, moving out showers, what we really need are small business showers. Where we can give the founder of the small business some titbits on how to succeed in business. 

And even be the first customers by preordering and paying in advance. Equipment wise, we could bring chairs, office desks, note books etc. In this way, starting a business won't seem so daunting and people would actually take this road less travelled.

Inequality is now not without countries, but within countries.

  As the world rapidly globalises, it will join together all the world's elite, the one percent of the one percent and a permanent underclass of all races. For practically, the person who earns kshs. 12,000 per month is the same person earning $12,000 a year in America. 

In essence, globalisation will move everyone from poverty that torments the body but spares the soul, to lack that torments both the body and the soul.

How America became the most hated and loved country in equal measure.

 

American politics affects the world since after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1990, the United States has remained the de facto world leader. China for all it's growth is still very much a developing country, and when looked at from per capita point of view, it is still way behind the West.

That said however, America is a double edged sword. It's government is the most hated in the world, bombing countries left, right, and center. However, American people are the most loved, through soft power being championed by institutions such as Hollywood, Harvard, Silicon Valley, Wall Street, evangelicals Bible belt.

This is what makes many immigrants want to routinely foresake everything in their country and start life afresh and partake in the call of the American dream, the call of the city so to speak, of naked greed and materiliasm, and in a few instances, destroyers of souls.

Celebrities do have great Influence. The only thing is that most celebrities cozy up to the rich so they don't want to bite the hand that feeds them.

 

Celebrities have great influence and can serve as a counter weight to the evil that is in the governance structure of the world. In 1984, Micheal Jackson and U2 organised the "We are the World, We are the Children" and the money raised helped alleviate famine in Ethiopia. 

Similarly, Drogba, the Chelsea great who was the darling of Morinho and "packing the bus" play style. When Drogba and his fellow Ivory Coast players told the country it was time to put aside the guns, and the guns did go silent, and the country returned to peaceful if not delicate civilian rule. 

YouTube earns you money if you are in the United States, and also have niche segments like personal finance, or hotel accommodation.

YouTube only pays for ads that have loaded on your videos. If someone clicks on the skip ad bar, then you get no money. Which is why YouTubers usually have add a second stream of income, be social media influencers and or take in product placements just the way Hollywood movies do.

And secondly, if you are in the United States YouTube earns you more per ad view, as much as six times than a YouTuber in a far flung corner of the world.

And also, some ad topics such as personal finance or Tourism and hotel accommodation earn you more since it converts faster to sales for the advertiser.

What makes an entrepreneur great, here are some propositions.

 

The traits of making a great entrepreneur is same trait that makes all creative geniuses, that is they prize Lett brain intuition, and gut instinct rather than the right analytical brain.

This not to say that entrepreneura should ignore facts on the ground and launch there venutre anyway. But what they need to do is rather than be compulsive, take calculated risks.

And that's why these days, great entrepreneurs are coming from an upper middle class homes rather than crawling the window to reach the podium run of the mill entrepreneur.

The myth of the college drop out like Mark Zuckerberg, or Bill Gates is just that.A Myth. Most people start successful businesses in their 40s when they have the right amount of savings, experience in a prized talent or skill, and the right contracts.

Social Media Influencers, are the new kids on the bloc. They get paid a huge chunk of advertising of the traditional broadcast media and adnetworks like Google AdSense.

 

There is what we call social media influencers. It pays much more than YouTube. If you create something of value, and you have a fanatic of an audience, then companies will want to tap into that. Social media influencers get paid more than they would have gotten from the peanuts from YouTube ads.

But Instagram announced that it would be regulating the social media influencers within their ranks. Though I don't know how they'll comb through millions of posts to determine which ones are influenced and which ones are genuine.

Tokenism of Obama and Kamala Harris is the undoing of the Democratic Party.

 

The Democrats don't have a plan for addressing the huge challenges that people of colour face in the United States. They are like the NGOs in Africa, address the problem, but don't eliminate it since it removes the emotional appeal for votes. (For the NGO in Africa, why eliminate the problem when it can always attracts grants on perpetuity?

So, if black and brown people were all living in nice kept suburbs, had functioning schools, and they wouldn't be incarcerated in prison, then the whole point of picking a few black tokenism like Obama or Kamala Harris to point how far America has come from would be a thing of the past.

The American election isn't really an election decided by all the states, but rather the election is won or lost a dozen battleground states.

 

The swing States are so because the city dwellers and rural American dwellers are evenly balanced. The American election isn't necessarily a fight between Democrats and Republicans. Rather, it's a fight between the urban and rural areas. And so Democrats do well in cities, because cities are by nature liberal, while Republicans do well on rural counties who are conservative by default.

Are the long YouTube ads really being immersed with YouTube Viewer user interface experience.

 

I also wonder why since ads that are more than 30 seconds long often get skipped. Why would someone create a 20 minute ad on YouTube if watching a 30 second ad is a punishment for of us?

How did Republicans move from the Reagan Glory days to the present Trump nightmare?

 

They are two sides of the same coin. Democrats rely on saviour complex mentality of liberals such that they address the problem for emotional appeal, but once in office, they do nothing.

And in any case, the Democrat party of today has moved too much to the center, thanks to the corporate wing of the party calling the shots and making the Democrats of today the Republican Party of the 80s. The Trump post Regan Republican Party of today is now so divisive that it will take a great miracle and to bring back the Republican Party of the 1980s.

Japanese lower grade primary students don't have exams as they are taught values of accommodation and collaboration that are unique to Japan.

 In Japan, students in the lower Primary/grade school don't do exams but are instead taught intrinsic Japanese values which fosters accomodation and sense of community, while the Victorian industrial education teaches us to be super competitive because thats the only to rise to the top. A win lose scenerio is the mantra of the modern education system.

With freeze on HI-B Visas on highly skilled foreign workers, America will no longer be the land of the talented and a shining city on the hill.

 

With H1-B Visas issuance frozen, with international student visas having a maximum two year stay in the US, America will no longer be a first among the equals in the innovation space, and the attendant wealth lost is unimaginable. 

Because studies show that immigrants to America create three times more jobs to the American economy than Americans do. For instance, Google is a product of an American first generation immigrant.

This is how America moved from landof prosperity for all to a land of the one percent of the one percent.

 A billion dollars farm was unheard during the agrarian revolution. That farm could have put everyone to work even in the far flung corners of the world. 

Then came the billion dollars corporation in the industrial age. This could have put 100,000 employees and provide them with decent enough jobs so that they could live a proper middle class lifestyle. Anyone from grade two primary school to the PhD found a career in the industrial economy.

Then came the software industry where a billion dollars corporation employed 500 people with excellent careers, but the "tired third tiers" of artisan and community college were thrown to the gutter. 

Then came the Silicon Valley internet boom, where a billion dollars corporation employed just 70 people. All flagship state universities, private universities and Ivy League found a safe home in the internet boom of mid 1990s and early 2,000s.

Then came the app developer company of the 2007/08 period. This is a ten employee no revenue company but is valued at a billion dollars. And wealth that was supposed to go to the industrial and agrarian  economy is hidden here. 

This is how America moved from landof prosperity for all to a land of the one percent of the one percent.

And in future we may have a one person one corporation who is both the shareholder, director, and staff.

Every American President, Democrat or Republican always rules America from the center right. Which means it is the Republicans that carry America on it's shoulder.

 

Once elected to the oval office, the Democrat had to move to the center while the Republican doesn't move an inch from the right. Which means it is the Republican center right cat family establishment that ruled America for this long.

Democrats only win when they are likeable. Republicans win for who they are, Good or Bad.

 

The unwritten rule of American election is that the Democrat only wins when they are likeable. Aka, Obama and Bill Clinton. Republicans win for who they, Good or bad. 

The last two Republicans in the White House, George W. Bush and Donald Trump, lost the popular vote but still won the electoral college, and as more Americans coalesce in cities, the popular vote swinging in opposite direction of the electoral vote will be the new normal of American elections.

On November 3rd election, Americans will be choosing between two Republicans. Centrist in Biden. Versus right wing in Trump.

 In going to the polls on November 3rd polls , the American will be choosing between the Centrist corporate Republican in Biden, versus the right wing Republican in Trump. Bacause big money has destroyed the Democratic Party so much that the Democratic Party of today is the Republican party of the 1980s. 

Asian American has built a safe middle class of small business excellence and upper middle class.

 

Both the Asian American and the middle class all over the world, have a parallel state owing to the rampant misgovernance in the world.

 But while the Asian American parallel state is anchored on small business excellence and upper middle class careers such as doctor, lawyer, design engineer or accountant, the developing world middle class is built on quick sand materiliasm, Uber private schools, private hospitals, gated and secure neighborhood, these things can only be sustained by small business excellence. 

A salary checked account cannot sustain a super middle class of the Asian American way, who is labelled as "Model Immigrant".

For mainstream media, news is the new entertainment. And Trump like 24 hour reality TV is their stock in trade.

 

Modern television is so built on drama and reality TV, Trump anyone? such that even news itself is now 24 hours entertainment. Even so called CNN has absolutely no science program, the "art of movement" was beginning to gain traction before it was hurriedly pulled down. 

And BBC no longer gets maximum amount from the British taxpayer, and has resorted to Newshour as it's flagship program.

And we would do well to ensure science regains it's front row seat place in the world of media.

Here's the stark difference between Freemasonry and Illuminati.

 The difference between illuminati and Freemasonry is pretty wide. The illuminati is about influence. Freemasonry is about power. 

Conversely, whereas the Freemasonry kill their sacrifice, where they go and block the angel of providence from taking her supplies to her people on the ground floor of the universe, the meta physical world we live in. 

On the other illuminati take most prized gift or talent of their Target and take it into the dead conscious. Ensuring the potential of their Target is 3D printed reality of their highest initiate. 

No one has ever joined the correct secret society, and that's why there is always war and chaos in governance, economies, and social strata of society. 

The original Freemasonry was experimental Physics. Not the blood oathing and satanic rituals of today.

 

Original Freemasonry was more experimental Physics a problem given and it has no answers anywhere, no way to describe those equations. You had to come up with your own control experiment to determine the answers. 

That Freemasonry only ran the first dynasty of kemet land. The rest of the kemet dynasties followed Freemasonry that was plagiarised, with blood oaths and all sorts of satanic bloodline rituals.

Should Uber treat it's drivers as employees or as sub contractors? This is the great question of our times.

 

Should Uber drivers be considered as sub contractors, or as employees? This is the question that is in courts, is in California lawmakers minds.

In it's defense Uber claims it is an app that merely connects the driver and the paying passenger, nothing more than that. And what's more to this day, Uber has not made a profit, and treating millions of it's drivers as employees will send it to the dustbins of also ran companies.

As gig freelancing economy takes shape the line between, freelancing, subcobtracting, and employees will be blurred.

Big Pharma and insurance companies have conspired to send healthcare in the world to be profit center rather than service to mankind.

 

Big Pharma and health insurance have captured healthcare throughout the world. Such that for big pharma, a cured patient is a lost client, so, just maintain the condition, don't eliminate it. 

Which is exactly how the computer security industry operates. Money is in the virus updates, not in the one off virus elimination.

 On the other hand, the insurance company now has a greater say on the patient than the doctor.

The internet has coalesed just around a few players. This is a tragedy for it was meant to democratise assymetric information flow.

 

Just like the best tweets are from those with just 200 followers, while those with million plus followers spew garbage, or manage a just a few retweets a week, the best products and services almost always never sell because the big multinationals companies like Unilever, Proctor& Gamble, or Del Monte will outmarket them. 

The internet had promised to democratise products and services to the village/precinct level but it has become a playing field of just few companies,; Facebook, Google, Twitter YouTube, Instagram, Tik tok etc. 

Decisions that affect the world are a pact between the super rich donors, and DownTrodden poor, who enforce those decisions.

 

Practically, anywhere in the world it is the middle class who should lead, but now, this not the case. The decisions that matter in this world are a pact between the super rich (campaign donors in case in the West like George Soros), and the DownTrodden Peasant poor, who enforce the decisions of the superich Rulers and their donors. 

"Shopping" enables many American College students avoid fatal career choice mistakes. And Universities around the world could learn greatly.

 

Shopping is what enables many American students avoid making fatal career choice mistakes. During the first weeks, students plug and drop courses which they find as not aligned with them, or they don't like the professor of the instructor. 

Students can only choose their major or degree in the second year, and this makes the students choose degree courses or concentrations that they align with.

Success in one field often leaders to lethargy. No company is immune to this, as these once market leaders show.

 

With success comes lethargy. It seems no company is immune to this trend of success leading to lethargy. 

Nokia was a world leader in feature phones. But it failed to transition into the smartphone market, allowing iPhone and Samsung to be the market leader in this. Even Nokia launching the Black berry did not save it's sinking ship. 


Microsoft is the world's leader in personal computer software, but this success did not translate to the smartphones. It is Google android that powers 97 percent of the world's smartphones. 


Google is a market leader in search, but it's dominant position in search never translated into it being a leader in the social media spaces, Facebook, Twitter, made Google shut down Google plus.


And Bernes& Noble physical bookstore was upstaged by the online bookstore, Amazon, making Jeff Bezos the projected world's first dollar trillionare.

With Corona, shopping has moved online permanently, and Jeff Bezos will be the world's first trillionare.

 

With Corona, online shopping and ordering services online will become mainstream. For the past, users have checked products online and then have gone on to purchase the product in a physical store. 

But with Corona leading to near shutdowns of physical interaction, the online stores have experienced booming business like never before. 

So much so that Jeff Bezos has added nearly $100 billion dollars to his wealth in the face of the Corona pandemic. And some preeict if the move to online spaces is permanent, he will be the world's first trillionare.

The wealthiest person in the world should be a mere $7 million in networth. Intersection between the creative genius and the greedy capitalist.

 

At what point does the creative intuitive genius entrepreneur, turn from helping society with his innovations to stealing from it. My hunch is that that point is a low of $7 million dollars. With exception of course if the billionare is holding that enourmous more as a trustee or a placeholder for her ilk. 

And my control experiment is that the celebrity is loved, even those hating them is just love manifested as hate. The celebrity is loved because she is operating within the $7 million dollars range. 

Whereas the billionare, despite their life changing products and innovations, is hated by everyone since there is a primal instinct feeling of the billionare robbying people on his way to the billion dollars riches. 

Zoom Conferencing is the first step in our lives shifting online. The full one will be 3D augmented reality.

 

Zoom Conferencing is the first step in our lives shifting online. The real blockbuster companies will be the ones that produce 3D augmented reality where the person across the screen at present will look and feel the same as though they were with you in the same physical space.

With Corona pandemic, a digital strategy for every company will suffice. And the CTO will call the shots.

 As Corona has now shifted working, learning, and shopping to online spaces, the Chief Technology Officer-CTO, will no longer beg for her voice to be heard. It is the CEO who will demand her views to be heard and incorporated into the company's core strategy to flourish. This is quite unlike Human Resources Manager who fought so hard for her views to be given same  prominence as Chief Finance Officer at the company's board meetings.

Before Silicon Valley happened, Wall Street took the best STEM talent. And they almost always lost their soul.

 Prior to dot com boom, Wall Street was top destination for the best math, science, and engineering talent. The McKinsey, Bain&Capital, Charles River Associates, was the go to place for a fancied STEM talent.

 This meant that the real employers of top tier science talent, big pharma, Ford, General Motors, Verizon,  got a raw deal, only second best workers. 

But then Silicon Valley came from nowhere to claim the sticker price for the brightest STEM talent. And story of the drop out College student who founded a company and made billions started getting traction.

Then early entrants into the software and dot com boom were paid in cash as well as in kind. (Shares). For instance, Microsoft, created 12,000 dollar millionares during it's early days, and the next big thing will all be science/tech oriented. 3D printing, smart hardware, biotech, composite materials.

Retail Banking is given. What has given banking a bad name is investment banking.

 

Retail banking has noble ambitions. To shore up savings for who don't have immediate needs for the money, and then distribute this money to the creative genius entrepreneurs who will use it for capital expansion, and bring better products to the market. 

This ensures that their is wealth being created, just as old wealth is being destroyed. 

What has given banking a bad name is "Investment arm of banking", Investment banking. Where fresh Ivy League and Ivy League caliber graduates get to advise clients to the tune of trillions of dollars, while these Ivy League graduates have set foot in the practical world of commerce even a single day.

And many of the Fresh graduates of Ivy League Universities know they are selling out, but since they have to maintain the brand name sticker price of the Ivy League, they just go along with the flow.

The World Bank and IMF need to be reformed since the world of today is no longer the world of 1945.

 

The unwritten rule is that America selects the head of the World Bank, while Europe picks the IMF managing director. This was world in 1945, not the world of today. Where is the voice of Japan which is a key contributor to both the World Bank and IMF? 

I'm reminded of how France has always gone to make UNEP be shipped to France, since to France, Nairobi is beneath the only UN body that has a headquarters in a developing country.

Some intrigues into the art of Harvard admissions.

 

Harvard admissions has some secrets it wouldn't want divuldged no matter what. For instance, Harvard's top feeder school in Africa, Alliance High School, Kikuyu, sent many students to Harvard since the 1980s. 

But when in 2006, a top student from Alliance, Herman Mutiso, selected MIT instead of Harvard, that long running relationship with Harvard was severed.

And while the Alliance High School Principal Christopher Khaemba flew all the way to Cambridge, Harvard to plead his case that Alliance top talent still consider Harvard the best to none choice, Harvard expanded it's feeder schools in Africa. 

Though World Bank gives more weight to hard infrastructure projects, it is the human capital investment that has a lasting legacy on a country.

 

In a power conference, one Oxford trained economist casually said that he is an expert in grand designs that fail.

 And to think that a bulk of his students will in the not too distant in the future advising the World Bank and IMF, with such disastrous policies as "structural adjustment" or large scale trillion dollars project that have absolutely no bearing on the living conditions of the citizenry. These projects only benefit the local errand boys of the global military industrial complex.

The better way to progress as the world is to prioritise human development over hard infrastructure.

With elite schools providing the needed contacts to succeed, success is now previledged rather than acquired.

 

With the elite schools now manufacturing success rather than it being an outcome of crawling through the window to reach the podium, success today is now previledged rather than acquired. 

Which means the lone solitary genius that is a future Oscar, multi trillionare or Nobel Prize winner will need to attend the elite schools rather than going to the run of the mill school down the road. Which means, there will be no equality of opportunity to make sure the underclass in community ascend to their highest self.

What is real signifance of aptitude in college and professional schools admissions process?

 

Do the SAT, GMAT, GRE, MCAT, LSAT, measure any aptitude test at all, besides measuring the ability to take such a test. Other than acting as a tie breaker in two otherwise qualified students, what is the rationale of these tests?

Here's the stark difference between Harvard Law School and Yale Law School.

 Harvard Law School and Yale Law School are consistently ranked as the top two Law schools in America, interchangeably. 

But there is a stark difference between these two law schools. Harvard teaches practice of Law, while Yale teaches Theory of Law.

As evidenced by when Business insider did a treatise on top ten Harvard Law School students to watch out, they were quick to list their ten shining stars, Yale Law school refused citing they are all equal and they told Business Insider while such ranking is good for selling magazines, Yale Law School will not bow down to such machinations.

 Such that the career path of a Harvard Law School graduate is a corporate law firm, while the Yale Law School graduate career path is clerking for a judge.

With $41 billion dollars endowment fund, doesn't Harvard feel a shame that it can't provide all it's students with free ride scholarships?

 

It's unthinkable that with $41 billion endowment fund, Harvard cannot provide full scholarships to all it's undergraduate to postgraduate students. True, the principal amount of the endowment fund has to be kept intact, and even increased marginally so that it offsets inflationary pressures.

But that's a lame excuse. Harvard multi billion dollars endowment can easily provide scholarships to all it's students. Or else then, Harvard is a corporation with little regard to advancing the course of the intellectual pilgrim.

The next big thing in the workplace is the Human Resources Agent.

 The next big thing in the workplace revolution is the Human Resources Agent. The Human Resources Agent who like the European soccer agent, will identify and spot talent, and then find where it can best be matched to. 

She will get a commission from each of the talents she brings to the company, and this could see the end of labour unions since the agent will be the intermediary between the employer and the staff.

Modern inventions created the celebrity.But the same celebrity is dumbing down society so much that it is not possible to produce the next of geniuses that will bring another set of inventions.

 

While modern inventions like TV, radio, internet, mobile phones created the celebrity, the same celebrity is the one dumbing down society so much that it is very uncool to be a nerd, or geek that is attuned to their own world.

Music Videos are dumbing down communities like never seen before.

 In music videos, men are gangsterised whereas women are sexually objectified. Making nerdy and geeky men as outcasts, while the woman who uses her head instead of her brawn is painted as an anomaly.

Give Indian graduates of IITs free work visas to work in the US, asked a US senator.

 

The quality of training at the Indian Institute of Technologies-IITs is so great that , a US senator , Howard Dean, asked that graduates from Indian Institute of Technology-IITs be given free work visas to work in the US, because of their great talent and hitting it off on the job from day one 

Indian Institute of Technologies-IITs, train talented staff at next to nothing cost. But they all go to work in the US, a severe brain drain if you ask me.


The best way for a country to develop is to it's best skills and talents serve it's immediate needs. For instance, the India Institute of Technologies- IITs, is one of the best universities in the world and yet three quarters of it's graduates go to the United States after graduation.

This is like India is subsiding cost of training future would be workers of America. Which is quite unfortunate since Prime Minister Nehru established the IITs as a way for India to train it's too cadre talent for local needs, not for export.

Did you know that the total wealth of the Computer network security industry is equal to the damaaged Ozone layer.

 

Did you know that the total wealth of the computer network encryption industry is equal to the damaged wealth of the ozone layer. 

Carnegie Mellon University is the leading university in computer network security encryption, and it's benefactor Andrew Carnegie was an ozone layer polluter per excellence. 

Between them, these three Industrialists, Henry Ford automobiles, Rockefeller of oil, and Andrew Carnergie of Steel, had a combined fortune of $400 billion, which if you look at it critically, is just wealth transfer from the environment.

The irony is that irban FM has greater financial muscle than rural community FM stations. But it is the rural FM stations that addressing world's toughest challenges.

 The amazing is that throughout the world, it is the community FM stations that setting the agenda for the world and helping solve some of the world's toughest challenges. 

While the urban FM stations are engaged in the callings of the city, the partakers of materiliasm, the destroyers of solves. Such that only base emotional pleasure hedonism is promoted in the urban FM stations of the world.

Maasai people have had their culture Plagiarised for billions of dollars. None accrues to them.

 

The Maasai people of southern Kenyan and northern Tanzania have had their culture plagiarised and and passed off as authentic Kenyan culture. This is brand theft of the Maasai people and even as it makes billions for the high end players in the tourism, no single cent goes to the ground to compensate the people, and for community to be sustainable.

The unfortunate thing today is that success is previledged rather than acquired.

 When a motivational speaker says that you  have same 24 hours as Mark Zuckerberg, a billionare who dropped out of Harvard College, the part that his class was previledged rather than acquired. 

For Mark Zuckerberg attended Philips Exeter Academy, a school with an endowment fund of $1 billion. Which is what many universities in the world don't have such staggering wealth.

 And in any case, the Philips Exeter Academy English department is better than Harvard English department. So, for Mark Zuckerberg it was a case of discovering his high school had a richer intellectual engagement than Harvard and so Mark Zuckerberg went underground and began to pursue other interests. . 

Let's run our political parties as music record labels or book publishers where talent alone gets you signed up.

 If the world ran their political parties like music record labels, or book publishers, then talent alone would determine who becomes our leaders. This way, the political class will be more indebted to us, instead like at present where they spend their own money to campaign or have friends and deep pocketed profiteer and drug dealers funding us. 

And then we are surprised when the leaders we elect steal from the first day in office, for getting power for them was just a means to protect their wealth, they didn't have the slightest inclination as to serve us. 

Women that choose great husband's as their cheerleader succeed more than woman had have wrecks as husband's.

 

Studies that for women to succeed in the work place, thier husband should be their number one fan. But since many women date only bad boys but end up carrying nice Professional guys, does it also hold?

What is the fate of the liberal arts education?

 

The fate of the liberal Arts is still under question. The liberal arts evangelists say it is the doctors prescription for developing the mind. However, critics of liberal arts say it's a great way to fashion a society, for it is useless to know the latest Quontum Physics theorems but yet be unable to fashion a successful society. 

But I believe we need both, a liberal arts education to free up our minds and cultivate it, and professional course to help us get jobs that will lift us out of poverty, or even retain our upper middle class lifestyle.

There is a new kid on the block- The Pampered Socialate.

 

Socialiates are new breed in town. They are now giving celebrities singers, footballers, actors, Singers, a run for their money. The socialite is the life of the party. And at high end parties, she is always invited. 


But while everyone points that Kim Kardashian is the ultimate socialite for the world, they are completely wrong about it. The queen of socialiates is the US First Lady.  She bowls with the high and mighty without ever being elected. 


And that's why the US Vice President is weak. Only Dick Cheney tried to restore the power of the Vice President. So, celestially, the moment the US does away with the First Lady, the Vice President will never be powerful.

Harvard follows tradition of Yale, and Princeton. But ultimately so long as Harvard renames buildings on account of how much they have contributed to endowment money, it will be a flawed exercise.

 Harvard and it's peer Institutions are enagaged in renaming of buildings that hold abhorrent and racist people as their name. Yale renamed it's residential college Calhoun, who was a slave merchant per excellence. 

Princeton renamed it's Woodrow Wilson public policy institute. Such renamings is a great place to start for while Harvard teaches ethics, it has been the last one to be ethical itself.


Think of the dining hall workers that have to strike in order to get a better pay. And in 2018, former Columbia stalwart laid off the entire HMC investment staff and outsourced their jobs, apparently for efficiency. 

Iran fills up MIT Math department yet it will never be known. It remains a best kept secret category.

 

Even as the United States and Iran are at each other's jugular often, do you know that Iranians fill many positions at the MIT math department. And in fact, you can take anything from Irananians but not their prowess in Math. That's where statement "Efficient Persian Governor who optimally uses his resources so his people can prosper.

Harvard isn't the best medical school, but Mayo clinic is.

 

The world's best medicine pratice hospital, the Mayo Clinic, uses a very unique and practical pedagogy to train the next doctors. And even though Harvard likes to think it's the best in everything, Mayo clinic beats it by a huge stretch to claim the number one medical school in the world.< .

Despite have major fault likes, the United States is still the capitalism paradise.

 

Initial Public Offering- IPO, is the way for many companies for Americans. The tour army of a traditional company across is a great spectacle. It is why the United States despite having major fault lines, is the home of the capitalism.

With Corona, the chief Technology Officer will wield so much more power than previously thought.

 

With Corona setting the precedent that future of work will be online, the Chief Technology Officer will not undergo the humiliation that the Human Talent Manager underwent through in trying to get the same seat as the Chief Finance Officer.

 In effect, it is not even the Chief Technology Officer who will push for her voice to be heard. It is the CEO that will demand input from the Chief Technology Officer on any subject under discussion.

The Greater Brain isn't from poor countries to rich countries. It is from rural areas to urban areas.

 While we always talk of brain drain from poor countries to rich countries, such as there are more Malawi doctors in Manchester, England than in Malawi.

The greater brain is from rural areas to urban areas anywhere in the world. Such that 75 percent of American South students that enroll in East coast Ivy League Colleges never go back to work in the American South. Thus The large inequality between South as compared to North.

There are many ways for a country to be prosperous, ranging full employee peasants in the farm, to one person multi trillion dollars fortune carrying their region on their shoulders.

 

In Europe the Precision Expert Consultant makes the rules. In this case Europe was Theorised. In America, the creative genius entrepreneurs like Bill Gates makes the rules. So, until Trump happened, the open shores of America welcomed all immigrants to the shores of America.

Canada, Australia, and New Zealand are three layered cyclic of moving between lower middle class, middle class, and upper middle class. No one knows any great people from these countries, but they are known as prosperous. Such that the British media lambasted Australia for worshipping Oprah Winfrey.

Needed: Small Business Showers in every village in the world, every precinct in the world.

 Instead of us doing house parties, moving out estate neighbourhood party, what if we were more serious and have more conviction then we should organise "SMALL BUSINESS SHOWERS". HERE we would have people bringing in notebooks, pens, chairs, desks, etc. 

And even be the first customers of that business. That is how to bring fortunes to our village and precincts all the world. Since small businesses are the primary employers for most fresh leavers/drop outs/ graduates.

Industrialist Chris Kirubi opines that In pitching your idea to investors, have a small twerk that only you can bring it to fruition.

 Industrialist Chris Kirubi in an interview with YouTuber Sharon Mundia argues that your business idea should be like formulae of Coca Cola, open enough to be pitched to as many investors(coca cola thousands of franchises), and yet also, you should have a small twerk that only you can bring your idea to fruition in the most efficient and cheap way.(Coca Cola formula remains a secret hidden in vaults in it's global head quaters in Atlanta, Georgia.)

European Soccer clubs are almost bankrupt, cites a report by auditing firm, Deloitte.

 

A report by Deloitte on sports as business shows that most top ranked teams in the European leagues like Arsenal, Manchester United or Barcelona and Real Madrid are making losses, and even the fair play rules which dictate how a club should manage it's finances, aren't applicable to these clubs.

In this case then, these clubs are trophy art than a sound business proposition for their owners. Because let's face it, investing in a European football club is like pumping billions only to get millions in return, if lucky.

A week's players wages in the European leagues is enough to football leagues in poor countries/poor estates in the West for a whole year.

 

One player's week wages in the European football is enough to run super effective leagues in the developing world, and low tier up to neighbourhood/estate in the West itself. Didier Drogba attempted it although he wasn't quite successful in shaping the next course of action for the Ivory Coast.

An MIT professor thinks all software magnates are steling, since sofware should be like food recipe.

 

A professor at MIT thinks all the software billionares are frauds. He says software, like food recipe, should be widely available but not attributable.

Sacrificed people by Freemasons goes to act as barrier in communication between the angels and their people.

 

The sacrificed person when someone gets initiated into Freemasonry, or gets rich through a witchdoctor usually goes to act as the shield in the spiritual realm and block deliveries from the angels to reach their people in the ground floor.

Such so much blood has been spilt, and infact the oceans are blood when time and space adjusted from the moon.

Calculus was discovered co independently by Isaac Newton and Leibneiz Goat. But Leibneiz Goat is barely known, as Isaac Newton takes the credit.

 

The fact that two people can discover a thereom co-independently means that we are not just ourselves. There is at least seven people of us in the world. 

When Isaac Newton invented calculus which wasn't his original equation for he wanted a tool to help him compute all the natural laws in Mathematica Principal, and so invention of Calculus was a byproduct of this.

But Leibneiz Goat also discovered Calculus independently, and it's still a debate since the second son of Jacob, Isaac Newton, has taken all credit for invention of Calculus.

Which just means in math as in business , the pioneer almost always loses to the second or third market entrant.

The currency of the world is not the dollar as we've been lied to. The currency of the world is life force energy.

 The currency of the world is not the dollar as many would like to believe. Rather, the currency of the world is life force energy, enabling some people to compresss entire days , entire weeks, entire months, entire years, decades, centuries, entire millennia, entire Quadrillion into a few seconds of work   without ever feeling exhausted. And some people to feel tired only a few second into the task.

Steve Jobs had the Coca Cola approach to innovation. Make the secret open enough to create buzz around it, but then hold on to a little secret that only you can execute.

 

Steve Jobs was so secretive in his product design that when the iPhone was being developed, the marketing guys never knew what the product development guys were doing, and vice versa. They knew of each other's occurrence as Steve Jobs was presenting the iPhone to the world media and people.

The Midas touch personality implements their idea in an instant, the Precision Expert Consultant has to test drive fast.

 The precision expert consultant cannot create fortunes since every business idea for him has to undergo a "so called brand report" , a "feasibility study", an "impact assessment report."

But for the Midas touch, these are non entities, for when she has an idea, she goes into the implementation phase straight. Even if it doesn't succeed it becomes a business foundation for the enterprise, when she'll pick up the pieces and launch another super successful business. 

The most successful entrepreneurs have at least two business failures before they began their current successful venture.

In primal Instincts the danger isn't in dying, but rather whether you died with your hands,(you won), or died with no instinct alert.(You lost).

 

In primal Instincts, the great sin is not death. But rather to die with the ball in your hands after a tussle. That's a through pass, it's not death. The one who dies is the one who fails to foresee danger and dies, this is usually great for ocean mountain top occupiers.

Inequalities are now no longer between countries, but within countries. A rural-urban war.

 In India, class inequalities are such that  a poor peasant on a donkey cart collecting firewood  passes passes right by a nuclear power station, the highest form of Inequality there is.

Pleasure hedonism is the great sin of answering to the call of the city, and it destroys the soul.

 No country in the world ever developed. For the poverty of the body was simply transplanted as the poverty of the soul.  Such that this emptiness felt by the rich manifests itself in answering to the call of the city, and pleasure hedonism is the great sin of the city.

There is $10 trillion dollars of underground wealth. If it is mainstreamed, it will be end of poverty.

 

According to Peruvian Economist Hernando De Soto, one of worlds most treasured property rights economists, he estimates that the total wealth of dead capital is $10 trillion. 

If this wealth is mainstreamed, it can attract business loans and expand in ways never seen before. Such that poverty in the world will be replaced by Prosperity that has meaning and purpose.

3D printing will usher in the age of mass customisation, and bring wealth back to engineers.

 

For the last 100 years, the modus operandi of factories in the world has been mass production. This just means that you spend a great deal of time coming up with the original product design prototype, then you spend a fraction of a second producing carbon copies by infinite amounts.

But now enter age of mass customisation in 3D printing in which you go to a car manufacturer Website , then download the car part design that has just broken in your car, and then 3D print it in your street corner.

This will see investments go towards countries with high skills, not countries with low labour costs. Conversely, wealth will flow back to the engineer, who has had to be subservient to the lawyer and doctor who practice their profession as owner manager, while engineer had to negotiate with a greedy capitalist, and got ripped off almost always.

Business ideas must be patented just like in tech, for the modus operandi for the world of business has been that behind great fortune is a great crime.

 

Business ideas should be patented, just like tech is. Because almost all the successful companies of the world are stolen ideas of someone else. For Bill Gates, it was Dr. George who developed the first Microsoft operating system , which Bill Gates bought for $50,000 and now that has made Bill Gates a wooping $200 billion, and counting. 

Similarly, Facebook wasnt Mark Zuckerberg original idea. It was an idea of Harvard upperclassmen who approached Mark Zuckerberg that they needed a platform to connect Harvard students, Facemash. And you get the feeling that behind every great fortune is a great crime.

Copyrighting, patenting, trademarking, Non Disclosure Agreements-NDA, should be also mainstreamed into the psyche of the creative genius entrepreneur.

 Copyrighting, Patenting, Trademarks, Non Disclosure Agreements-NDA, are something that every entrepreneur, should be knowledgeable at. For it would help them to avoid getting their ideas stolen by greedy capitalists.

Especially for TV programs many creative intuitive geniuses have pitches their ideas to TV stations, they are rejected, only to see the same idea being 3D printed reality for the TV station.

It took the West 400 years to achieve what China has achieved in 30 years. Results of having super executioners as leaders.

 While Europe was Theorised no doubt with like Boyle, Isaac Newton, Leornado Da Vinci, Leibneiz et al, America was innovated no doubt with billionares like Henry Ford, Rockefeller, Andrew Carnagie, who between them had fortunes of $400 billion.

While China was reverse engineered by making the theory of Europe and innovation of America, to lift 300 million Chinese out of poverty. It took the West 400 years to achieve what China has done in 30 years.

The developing world will be 3D printed since there are grand designs, theorems, dissertations, thesis, opinion columns, social media posts, blogs that just need a great and fast executioner 

Celebrities, seated 10,000 kilometers away, now have better advice than the uncle or auntie.

 

Celebrities have a great platform to change the world but they always keep mum since the boat must not be rocked. 

On important issues, they only retweet great content from somewhere else. But also, the power of the celebrity is so much such that the first port of call for a distressed person is to watch a celebrity TV talk show or read her book, when the auntie or uncle sages are just a walk away.

Instead of American Universities teaching voodoo economics at undergraduate, let them teach business.

 

I have never understood why American universities teach Economics rather than business in the undergraduate program. Apart from Wharton teaching business at undergraduate, no other American universities teach it. What's the rational behind that?

In the world it is business that rules, but an American can only do it at professional postgraduate level. And for sure, it is Voodoo Economics that is making the world suffer.

MBA, Law schools are cash cows for Universities, making today's university the ultimate Corporation.

 

Instead of being centers for the intellectual pilgrim, the leading universities of the world have become granters of previledge rather than granters of intellectualism. That is the sole reason why MBA, Law school were created. They are cash cows for Universities.

Top ranked Princeton University doesn't have a medical, business or law school. Only Academics.

 To this day, Princeton University, in US, the most consistently ranked number one university in undergraduate education in America, does not have Law, Business, or Medical school. 

It remains a purely a academic university, and is the last line of defense for the American Precision Expert Consultant as she often loses out to the creative intuitive genius.  

BAROMETER: If your story doesn't meet BAROMETER standards, it is thrown away by Mainstream Media.

 BAROMETER- This is the language speak of newsrooms. That if a story is not spinned enough to generate bar talk base emotion conversations, then it will be thrown out. 

And although endowment funded programs such as the "Knight Science Jounarlism" undertaken by MIT helps to bring science agenda from the background to front and center, it is too little to damp out base emotion garbage of our mainstream media. And one recepient of the MIT Knight Science Jounarlism fellowship, came back to Kenya and continued which base emotion politics.

Science, Business, Technology will unlock the wealth potential of the world. We needs into these fields, not news.

 Sex sells not because of it's pleasure, but because everyone has an opinion about it. From the peasant in New Delhi, from the industrialist in Ghana. From the grade school in China to the high flying Professor at Harvard. The challenge then for editors to simplify business, technology and science from news to insights which is what will unlock the hidden wealth of the world.

Ory Okolloh: Have a library in every village and pricinct in the world, not a clinic.

 In a BBC program the "Forum", Ory Okolloh suggested that instead of having clinics in every village and precinct, the urgent priority should be to have a library in every village and precinct of the world. Since a mind nourished can overcome even the greatest challenges that she faces.
