A 4th Bottom Line for Socially Responsible Investment
I have always believed that with every crisis comes an opportunity.
What opportunities can we find? As an educator involved with
non-profits, I can see the current grant making practice reeling in
shock. I would say the days of charity are over. The growing
'challenge' based funding opportunities, and the 'challenge' based
learning initiatives which are emerging give evidence of a new model.

Excerpt from 'ZERO Greenhouse Emissions - The Day the Lights Went Out - Our Future World' - Chaper 4 - The Day Before.
The coal industry and the political parties supporting them would have us believe they can continue with the fossilized carbon release and offer up for our comfort, the silver bullet, of “Clean Coal Technology” and “Carbon Capture and Storage—CCS.”
Digging deeper, as they also must to keep… Continue

Magandang hapon! Good afternoon!
A gladdening news just filtered out recently about the Philippines having now capped the Top Friendster end-user notch. Accordingly, there are today 30 Million end-users in the Philippines of the top social networking platform, the Friendster, out of a total of 85 Million users worldwide.

President-elect Barack Obama understood the subtle difference between utilizing volunteers to achieve an objective, and embracing volunteers as the objective. He created free space for collaborative efforts. The interests of the volunteer, the campaign, and Mr Obama were able to find convergence. He was not a leader with a thousand helpers. He became the leader of a… Continue

In a previous article, this writer articulated the success of the Japanese Zaibatsu offensive. As one ought to realize, the success of the Zaibatsu offensive came at the expense of other markets, notably the North’s.

Today, Zaibatsus… Continue

This trend is likely to continue, it seems, despite efforts by government… Continue

(UNDP: Jakarta) - A rise in migration within South-East Asia, and the conditions under which some people move, could make millions more vulnerable to HIV infection. A groundbreaking country-by-country assessment of HIV and migration among ASEAN countries reveals that despite their contributions to national economies, migrants have little or no right to legal or social protection and generally lack access to HIV/AIDS services and information.

Magandang hapon! Good afternoon!
Let me share to you at this moment some notes regarding the ‘globalization’ experiment and the flawed policies that sustained it. There has been much ballyhoo about the global economy’s integration, over the last three (3) decades, as having been carved out supposedly by the Anglo-Saxon policy architects, using Thatcher & Reagan as the face for the ‘neo-liberal’ policy regime they installed.
Little do… Continue

It's been some time since I last posted....well exactly a month, but I thought I would share this article I found today.
