Water for Africa

[youtube=http://youtu.be/uQu_Jppvzyk]Real help for Africans

We’ve seen how governments and agencies are willing to spend billions of taxpayers dollars to fund the dumping of obsolete “AIDS drugs” on the African continent. Bill Gates, who has been moving his vast fortune out of software and into a portfolio pharmaceutical companies before the bottom falls out of Microsoft, is a huge booster for testing experimental drugs on Africans.

While these ghouls “give” billions as part of a mission to turn Africa into a colony of the pharmaceutical industry, PlayPumps has a better idea. Why not make it easy for rural Africans to get access to clean water? As demonstrated in the West not much more than 100 years ago, when clean water is made available to a population, they become healthier and their life span and productivity increases.

This technology is ingenious and it demonstrates how easy it is to solve the real problems of the world – if the “philanthropists” actually care about helping.

World “Health” Organization Funded by Junk Food Industry

Not only is the WHO funded by junk food makers like Coca-Cola, Nestle and Unilever, they also have junk food industry ‘experts’ to advise them on things like how to fight obesity! No more needs to be said really, but here is a Daily Mail article about it. (saved as a pdf here World_Health_Organisation_taking_cash_handouts).

This isn’t an exception, it’s the norm. For example the purveyors of carcinogenic food would have us believe that buying it in a pink bucket is somehow good for cancer! See http://www.naturalnews.com/037802_pinkwashing_breast_cancer_corruption.html

Given Tablets but No Teachers, Ethiopian Children Teach Themselves

Tablet test: Nicholas Negroponte, founder of One Laptop Per Child, describes experiments involving children in Ethiopia at MIT Technology Review’s EmTech conference.

With 100 million first-grade-aged children worldwide having no access to schooling, the One Laptop Per Child organization is trying something new in two remote Ethiopian villages—simply dropping off tablet computers with preloaded programs and seeing what happens.

The goal: to see if illiterate kids with no previous exposure to written words can learn how to read all by themselves, by experimenting with the tablet and its preloaded alphabet-training games, e-books, movies, cartoons, paintings, and other programs.

Early observations are encouraging, said Nicholas Negroponte, OLPC’s founder, at MIT Technology Review’s EmTech conference last week.
