I was once a young man, very much like the young men and women who have gone to Iraq and Afghanistan as US military soldiers. I grew up believing in the red, white and blue. I believed that the United States had a sacred mission to spread democracy around the world. Viet Nam was my generation’s war.

Part I by Michel Chossudovsky Global Research, October 13, 2011 There is a grassroots protest movement unfolding across America, which includes people from all walks of life, from all age groups, conscious of the need for social change and committed to reversing the tide. The grassroots of this movement constitutes a response to the "Wall Street agenda" of financial fraud and manipulation which has served to trigger unemployment and poverty across the land. Does this movement constitute in its present form an instrument of meaningful reform and social change in America?
| Marianne Maeckelbergh | The year 2011 has breathed new life into horizontal models of democratic decision-making. With the rise of the 15 May movement and the occupy movement horizontal decision-making became one of the key political structures for organising responses to the current global economic crisis. While this decision-making process has arguably never been as widely practiced as it is today, it has also never seemed as difficult and complicated as it does today.
Several protesters said during the heat of last week’s battles here that they were astonished that the United States had not punished the filmmakers. “Everyone across all these countries has the same anger, they are rising up for the same reason and with the same demands, and still no action is taken against the people who made that film,” said Zakaria Magdy, 23, a printer. In the West, many may express astonishment that the murder of Muslims in hate crimes does not provoke the same level of global outrage as the video did. But even a day after the clashes in Cairo had subsided, many Egyptians argued that a slur against their faith was a greater offense than any attack on a living person. “When you hurt someone, you are just hurting one person,” said Ahmed Shobaky, 42, a jeweler.

I read several such comments from the rioters in the press last week, and I have a big problem with them. I don’t like to see anyone’s faith insulted, but we need to make two things very clear — more clear than President Obama’s team has made them. One is that an insult — even one as stupid and ugly as the anti-Islam video on YouTube that started all of this — does not entitle people to go out and attack embassies and kill innocent diplomats. That is not how a proper self-governing people behave.
Samuel James for The New York Times Members of Boko Haram, a group that has killed thousands of people in recent years in an effort to establish an Islamic state in Nigeria. The candidates offered profoundly different answers during their final debate last week, with repeating his triumphant narrative of and dead terrorists, and warning darkly about Islamists on the march in an increasingly hostile Middle East. In a sense, both are true.
What happens if you give a thousand Motorola Zoom tablet PCs to Ethiopian kids who have never even seen a printed word? Within five months, they'll start teaching themselves English while circumventing the security on your OS to customize settings and activate disabled hardware. Whoa. The One Laptop Per Child project started as a way of delivering technology and resources to schools in countries with little or no education infrastructure, using inexpensive computers to improve traditional curricula.

In 1989 , the Legislature enacted standards for the certification of mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, and social workers. They were required to have a master's degree and thousands of hours of clinical training. • Fearing they would put less-educated counselors out of work, lawmakers created a classification called registered counselor. This classification had basically no requirements . • The only other state with registered counselors is Maine.

I was speaking with my friend and colleague Tyler Willis today about social media and he made a good point which should be pretty obvious but is oftentimes overlooked. The topic dealt with being able to debate and articulate your position in a conversation. This doesn’t have to deal directly with social media, but in our case it did. In social media (and for that matter in any field), there are going to be different types of people; some will be extremely analytics and ROI focused, others will understand that 1.5 billion people are on the web and it’s crucial that their company is too, and other folks will be right in between.
