At the ripe old age of 28, Aaron Jackson has delivered medicine to cure over 1.7 million Haitian children of the intestinal worms that eat away their bodies, and slow their brains and drive into a nutrient-depleted lethargy.
Long before the Earthquake, Haiti saw its share of tragedies.  The devastation caused by intestinal parasites was one.   And the cure so easy:  one pill that costs less than five cents.   As water systems become tainted, and water lays stagnant, the parasites will increase.   But make no mistake:  the trouble is in …

Get it.   We are interdependent.   Economically and spiritually, we are a chain.  A world of links, one pulled by the other.  And yes, the USA is the mother link, economically.  Now.  That will not always be the case.  Change is the nature of life.  Today, the USA.  Tomorrow, perhaps, China.  The next day, perhaps, Jamaica.  Or Brazil.  Or Dubai.  Or Cuba.  What is clear without a doubt, is that we are all linked together.  For the well being of one, we must root for and support the well-being of the …

Economic Opportunity, Global Creativity, Immigration to the USA »

It has been suggested by a student at the CUNY School of Professional Studies that the numbers of visas available to foreigners should be based on the historic productivity and contribution to the USA by immigrants of the individual’s nation. He proposed that a greater number of visas should be allocated to countries that have produced immigrants who have significantly contributed more to the progress of this country. As examples, he noted the contribution of Mexican immigrants to agriculture, Philippine immigrants to nursing and health care, and Indian immigrants to engineering and telecommunications.He posited that it is not fair that countries that have not produced a significant number of immigrants who have helped shape America should have the same number of visa available as the rest of the world. He proposed that countries ought to be extended visas based on a weighted evaluation of how immigrants from those countries have contributed to the greatness of the USA. Do you agree?

We all have gifts and talents and opportunities- even when there are tremendous obstacles in our way.   It is possible for every one to make a difference-  for themselves and for a more beautiful world.  Sometimes that is as simple as a smile to someone.  Sometimes that smile achieves a difference larger than could be imagined.   Enjoy this video about children who have impaired hearing, as they learn the art of mime.  It is a project done by the World Mime Organization and supported by the Ministry of Social Affairs …

The first law of thermodynamics is this: Energy can neither be created nor destroyed. The form of energy may change- becoming, for example, mechanical, chemical, or heat energy. But more energy is not produced. Any energy “created” or used is diverted from elsewhere…

On The Way to School..
International student exchange offers a fabulous way for our world to share its beautiful cultural differences.   Many countries require students to serve one or two years in the military after school.  Imagine what a beautiful world we could have if instead all countries required its students to travel one or two summers to study in another culture!

Miguel doesn’t have a dime in his pocket.  Not twenty pesos.  In Mexico, he figures, it takes at least 32 pesos a day to feed a family as big as his.   Fuhrat has five hundred thousand dinars-but it doesn’t mean much since it takes nearly that amount to buy a loaf of bread in Iraq.  That’s if you can find one in the local marketplace, which is most often closed due to threats of violence.  Hanna has a vision, but in Bulgaria, it takes more money than she has to make it real.  Or so she thinks.  …
