Media Map Shows Impact of Information (December 5, 2011) How do we know that media make a difference? We’ve looked at the numbers. The Media Map Project, a multi-faceted research collaboration between Internews and The World Bank Institute, has made 25 data sets which collectively touch on every country in the world and up to 30 years' worth of information available to the public for download and analysis. Strategic Export Controls: Reports and Statistics As part of its commitment to transparency in Export Controls, the Government has published Annual Reports on export licensing decisions since 1997. From 2004, the Government also published Quarterly Reports to further enhance transparency. Since 2005 these reports have also included decisions on Trade Control licences, and since 2006, information on licences issued under EC Regulation 1236/2005 (on trade in certain goods which could be used for capital punishment, torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment).
Future Forward As part of the Future Forward partnership, Ashoka and The MasterCard Foundation have launched the Future Forward: Youth Innovations for Employment in Africa challenge to find bold new ideas—for young people and by young people—that will address the big picture issues around youth employment in Africa. Youth have the potential to build a better future for Africa and solve the staggering rates of unemployment across the continent. By creating new solutions, young people can equip themselves with the right 21st century tools and skills that will lead to more meaningful, stable, and long-term careers. Through these solutions, African youth can be the leaders and changemakers that are powering a future that meets the demands of a rapidly evolving workplace. Let’s transform the environments where young people work and cultivate opportunities.

Seiichi Morimura The Devil's Gluttony was serialized in the Akahata (Japanese Communist Party's newspaper) in 1980, and subsequently published by Kobunsha (光文社), in two volumes 1981 and 1982. In the ensuing controversy, half of a photograph was discovered to be a fabrication, and Kobunsha subsequently withdrew the book. A second edition was then published by Kadokawa Shoten in 1983 with the controversial photograph removed. He won the Edogawa Rampo Award in 1969 for "Death in the High-Rise". His short story: "Devil of a Boy" appears translated into English in "Ellery Queen's Japanese Golden Dozen: The Detective Story World in Japan" anthology, which was edited by Ellery Queen. References
The Official Definitions of Seed, Series A, and Series B Rounds The Official Definitions of Seed, Series A, and Series B Rounds As many of you know, I’ve been elected to my third consecutive term as the Chairman of Startups & the Interwebs. In this official capacity it is my responsibility to give an official definition of confusing or debated terms.
