If many people are meeting each other for the first time- including a new class at school - we recommend spending the first 3 minutes: ask people to stand up in groups of three- each person spends 60 seconds on the greatest life changing moment in her life to data and what she did differently because of it. Q&A- 1) why's this smart way spending 3 minutes introducing people? 2) how to action debrief everyone? 3) what other tools exist for innovating simultaneous communications among masses of people? 4) Does our species future generation depend on experiencing such culturally simple and trustworthy ways to spend time communicating?

Emperor ( QueenEnglish )

true media related QE3
An extract from my father Norman Macrae's obituary writer for The Economist for Emperor Hirohito- more at EconomistJapan
Emperor Hirohito - one of humanity's transformational leaders - by Norman Macrae 1 2 (written 1989)

Few would have forecast in 1901 that a prince, who was told at birth that he was the direct descendant of a Storm God and a Sun Goddess, would prove to be a bravely ordinary man who would affect uniquely for good the second half of the new century. That is the Emperor Hirohito's legacy
At his accession in 1926, Japan's military advance could not have been checked by any sort of monarch. Had Emperor Hirohito tried, he would have been pushed aside. Japan's entry into world war in 1941 was particularly popular with many Japanese and hundreds of millions of Asians who saw it as likely to end Asia's hated subjection to European colonialism, which it actually did. The Emperor's great service to this century came in 1945, when he claimed it was the consensus of the Japanese that they should unconditionally surrender, which it actually wasn't
Without the Emperor's decisiveness, the war would have continued for a time. At least a dozen nuclear bombs would have been dropped on Japan, at a time when most of the scientists who invented them had no inkling of how far fatal radiation sickness from them could spread ; they do not really know even now. Soviet troops as senior partners to Chinese communists would have swarmed into Asia, imposing a clamp on much of East Asia, just as it was imposed on East Europe.

In April 2019 the Hirohito's grandson succeeded- the first year of Japan's Reiwa aer looks like the most exciting ever led out of one nation -
it ends with a tranafolmration of the olympics
it begins by hosting g20 in osaka - for this interested in SDG economics Japan is meeting all African leaders at ticad yokohama aug 2019 and taking views to UN sdg summit in september
the emperor has also invited pope francis to host a week of faith dialogues and has asked which of 196 nations leaders would like to attend a joint celebration of uniting youth and futures that are happy and free- i have little doubt that Japan's people deserve and will be as happy as free as any on earth but there remains a lot of work so that the two thirds of people who are asian can humanise artificial intelligences so all the worlds daughters and sons can be free and happy

if you nof a two percent of peoplws who are trying harder to humanise tech for everyone would love to be beamed in -chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

kai-fu lee

Kai-Fu Lee
Fortunately for millennials and their parents Mr Lee published the best seller “AI Superpowers : China, Silicon Valley and the new world order” before Mr Trump’s oriental witch hunt. The cat is out of the bag- AI is –or needs to be- the next universal human language. Coming as it does in multiple forms mapped out in KFL’s book such as place AI, internet AI, corporate business AI, conscious market purpose or educational AI, sensory AI ..
We who dream of making youth and education great again -for every girl and boy to be free to build livelihoods and families -  are fortunate that Kai-Fu survived cancer. As the west was subpriming finance, this transferred him via a Hong Kong hospital from the head of Google AI in silicon valley to hubs outside Tsinghua university most hungry both for AI and supercity shared economic clouds. Smart mobile students are empowered to conceive of to rebirth a city round sharing infrastructures from bikes to apartments to co-work spaces located alongside university campuses. The more so in  a nation determined to value 21st C women as holding up half the sky
Chinese Capitalism and healthy society has been on a miraculous journey since 1976- just imagine if one fifth of the world people were still locked out of world trade-likely whole of Asia would now be failing. In 1975 there were no non-state companies. Then billionaire diaspora inward investors were freed to start companies as were village families using rice science to end famine. Up to the 2000s, China remained at least 2G’s behind silicon valley then it caught up. In 2017 China celebrated 5 million youth startups. This was accelerated by every university city planning an avenue of AI entrepreneurs something first tested around Beijing’s and the world’s most curious universities Tsinghua , Peking, Renmin and Beijing normal. Kai-Fu was there to advise this most extraordinary transformation of a somewhat sleepy but most prestigious university suburb into wave upon wave of entrepreneurial youth dreams for serving china. The great thing about Place AI is you don’t need to politically theorise about it, just go visit it. Millennial friendships are a win-win currency

Prince Charles : QueenEnglish valuingyouth wework

The 20th Century started with 2 island empires Britain and Japan ruling how world trade routes operated. By this time the majority of the world's people - living on the continent of Asia -were poverty-trapped- being excluded from access to electricity grids and industrial revolution modernity. Part of this mess had been caused by how the east india company had become the worst corporation in the world- by the time it had reached china in 1860 it was insisting opium be accepted in trade for the most valuable spices and silks. In part islanders may have known how to wire up a small region but not huge continental spaces.

The root cause of the world wars was how these two island empires and other G8 empires ruled. The Americans (and Canadians) twice helped the old world sort out the world wars. Queen Victoria had started to change from head of slavemaking empire to commonwealth with assistance of eg editors at The Economist from 1843 but not fast enough.

No English speaking person alive today is better able to understand all the history of all these cultural and economic messes than Prince Charles. Since 1964 when he attended the tokyo olympics he has built bridges with the Japanese Emperor family and understood that engineering and other innovation Japan engineering leaped ahead with after world war 2 (thanks hugely to Deming) providing Belt (container superports) Road (Bullet train) possibilities (innovations in microelectronics) to ending poverty all across asiam and whence a globalisation by and for all peoples- beginning with the islands from Japan down to singapore, linking in south korea and since 1978 the Chinese mainland

These days the UK Royal family's advice is sought far less than it could be. However one of most inspiring innovations is how sir fazle abed once a CEO of Royal Shell oil company tapped into the best of developing economics support of Japan Britain and the Netherlands:  FazleAbed.com BRACnet.ning.com
#metoo Hopefully any true media agent at journalistsforhumanity in the reigns of KingCharles.and Emperor Reiwa will have been required to learn this fable by heart - well at least at the peoples world service media the bbc need to know all about this half a millennium's herstory Q? welcome chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk

With the possible exception of Japan Emperor Family (who Charles has enjoyed good relations with since 1964 olympics) nobody is in a better position to mooc a herstory curriculum of how most of the world's people (Asians are about 67% of our species) were trapped in poverty by the way the colonial and industrial ages spun once it was discovered the world c.1500 mother earth was round , Thus the fist key national advantage went to whomever could build the biggest ships of war - and it was mainly the brits that led north europeans not just to go to america but to colonise the south and east asia coasts- you need a really big boat because in those pre suez days you had to sail all the way round africa to get to asia- a job (that could take a year there and back if your health permitted)  that was so unpleasant that slavery probably started as much as press-ganging crew as for other dismal economic reasons (more on sustaining black & white america ar WRJ Rice & Jackson)

Its worth remembering that until the train's steam engine the fastest way to travel was by horse or boat, and so neither trade nor  tourism nor communications (whether real learning or news of any sort) traveled fast, and it was imperative that commands passed down the line.

READ ALL ABOUT IT: The Brits designed education so that those who came top (at the bar of london or the Oxbridge) passed standardised exams (ie subjects where there \was nothing left to explore or dream about) in the exact opposite of entrepreneurial modus operandi freeing speech to ask whether diversity of nature or cultures let alone languages might lead to more than one answer particularly if looked at what was most locally needed for family-loving people to be free  and happy

The Herstory of the UK royal family's rulership is really quite peculiar- its worth noting these (transformational if not downright revolutuonary) steps though there are others you can add in

around 1710 scotland went bankrupt- without knowing it the peoples savings had been invested abroad in a bubble possibly a failed  part of the emergence of the  panama canal- whence the hostile takeover of Scots by london- in other words the scots were one of london's first colonies- the origin of economics: adam smiths books from 1748 on trust (moral sentiments) worthy of market economics are written from this point of view: scots were already losing control of market transparency, and even if nobody cared about scots his piece de resistance : 1776 advantage of nations argued that once so many people had gioe to settle such a large land as the usa- london would be wise to design- w n-win trades and us independence-- of course london wasn't that adaptable and from that day on Boston became a rather unlikely hub for open sourcing the best humans can connect-

 probably this right old muddle accelerated colonisatioj of south asia and even through to malaysia including what we call singapore and now north  to china's south coast and an island  hong kong that became as vital to the future of the human lot as ever Britannia once was

the big question to anyone curious about Britannia's conversion beyond chief slavemakers is when did commonwealth become something the royal family (at least privately even if by now they were told to stay out of politics ) preferred to being lord of the empire- and here eneters another scot james wilson enters the picture - originally hatmaker in scotland he was fed up with the poverty of his workers caused by ever greater taxation and selfishness from london's parliament (by james time, less than 100 years after adam's morals book, more than half of scots had emigrated through lack of livelihoods) so james became an MP at Westminster's House of Parliament- and to start a movement in london fashionable cafes and royal societies james started telling the story and numbers of how the corn laws (through which landowners burnt corn if they couldnt get a high enough price) was starving up to a quarter of irish people to death- queen victoria who after albert died turned into a chronic depressive met james while she was still liking people - additionally she was advised by wellington of waterloo that trains were causing people to move around and having seen the french guillotine the 0.1 % of richest -the corn laws at least should be repealed. They were but not in time for 150 years of hatred and terror campaigns between southern ireland and the UK. If lreland was the biggest neighboring tragedy of empire designing trade for the few, the india subcontinent was the biggest in the 1850s- one quarter of the world's people were effectively having their trade ruled by britannia. James convinced victoria to let him go to calcutta to design a new economy- he foredm teh chartered bank but died of diarrhea 9 months into the project- it took 100 years  before a calcutta lab invented oral rehydration - the biggest infant and old person killer in the world of the tropics could be cured by mixing boiled water sugar and salts in the right proportion. This solution from the 1870s launched girl empowerment in poorest bangladesh and south china villages. but what of James and victoria's commonwealth

well walter bagehot james son in law became the next editor of the economist and he helped redesign currency systems - something peculiar happened britain didnt have enough gold for victoria to keep her promise to redeem a paper note. So instead of the british empire beginning to pull back it forged ahead to hong kong and demanded the chinese accept opium as a trading currency. The chinese wisely fell on their sword and withdrew from global trade markets for over 110 year5s - perhaps the most tragic (uneconomic) story in human history as up til then china had been the largest population and biggest economy.

and so the world went on - today paper currency is printed by politicians particularly when their big banks make a mistake like subprime 2008- in other words the next generation pays for the mistakes of richest elders through the rot that is paper currency and the rot that is any unecessary war. Now I am not bright enough to decide on when a war is necessary - and being born in 1951 to a father who had spent his last dats asa teen navigating airplaned over modernday myammar and bangladesh I thank the americans for town intervening in the old worlds wars and ridding us of hitler,

CONCLUSION TODAY Britannia and japan owe all asians human development around siutainability goals and china and bangaladesh women empowerment has innovated the most extraordinary solution s ever seen since 1972- and i just wish prince charles would get someone to mooc the reality herstory of economic development by and for the people before fake media and some sad loss of confidence out of the americas turns the ear of 100 times more tech every decade sine the moon race into orwell big brother end game instead of every girls right to be as free and happy as every boy

i am not a historian. I am a statistician. I have never had enough money to collect my own data. I understand that artificial intelligences is now a trillion times more effective than my brain power but we still have to choose what big data we feed into the AI and what the purp;ose of the data owner is. So could prince charles and a member of japanese emperor family invite boris and macron to a private cup of tea and see if they can map soe data worth apping AI to?

how did london temporarily become the world's biggest city - and did its evolution mainly ban skyscrapers as the royals didnt want their bedrooms spied on by peoples with telescopes.Most people spent their whole lives wi9th 15 miles of where food was grown and hi=ome was born, Its interesting to see how large the royal gardens still are in London- for most the invention of the underground was a double miracle- it freed travel and its was pribaby as heatb down under than it was on the Dickensian streets

my last happy 12 months in hungary and poland - maths guy tales of pope francis von neumann soros paul farmer yunus and

when my father norman macrae retired after 50 years at The Economist of celebrating whenever east and west and south -and tech wizards - helped to end poverty- especially that 400 years of british slave trading and colonisation had trapped most of 60% of humans are asia in - he spent a decade writing columns for other papers like the sunday times and doing john von neumann's biography

it was therefore a huge treat for me to attend the 20th open society awards hosted by soros out of his (central european)university in budapest- i am a maths guy so i always wanted to see the place where the turn of century 19 had brought up the greatest maths kids ever- on the happy days I visited budapest its a jewel of a city with people working so hard to get back on trading maps that over 40 years of cold war ripped asunder in east and south europe and eurasia, and which just as things seemed to be on the up the interventions in iraq libya and syria to name but 3 have caused so much border havoc that berlin and brussels have made worse for so many peoples peripheral to the german-french-luxembourg-belgium combine harvester

but the networking reason for being in budapest 2-12
where soros nominated his greatest hero as sir fazle abed and paul   farmer was seconding the celebrations on behalf of all health servants for the poor
but then the eu started collapsing - as always that means germany belgium luxembourg france externalise risks onto south and east europeans and now budapest having seen vast trains of refugees enter the eu via its borders has turned all angry especially against soros who had done nothing other than plant a university for enlightenment
there are 3 great human development miracles that have happened since i was born in 1950s - japan and all the far east islands eg singapore HK taowan (and isthmus korea s), china mainland, banagldesh- of these none are remotely possible to study in any american or west european university but bangladesh womens building of the 8th largest population born poorest in 1971 is the most heroic things that has ever happened on the ground (what most heroic in virtual space is a different section of worldrecordjobs.com though the two over;ap - see also www.economistbangla.com and www.womenuni.com and quarterbilliiongirls.com or help linkedin UNwomens

my family tried unsuccessfully to help dr yunus on 3 occasions- we were locked in to grameen compound in dhaka the day that nations supreme court  ruled that yunus was too old to lead a government bank, we help adam smith scholars on glasgow launch the yunus inspired journal of social business, and we helped yunus  challenge mainly black states university  presidents to celebrate their greatest (oops i mean community most caring as well as financially adept) young black entrepreneurs- there was supposed to be a grand finale  in atlanta in 2015 with black youth entrepreneurs across usa being celebrated by nobel peace lasureates

so i attended the 2013 laureate summit in warsaw where the redoutable lech walesa told his secrets of needing the moral support of pope john paul but where sadly gorbachev was not well  enough to speak- since then poland has caught some of the culturally dismal conflicts, the 2014 nobel peace laureate summit was moved from celebrating mandela because yunus could not accept south africa's refusal to give the dalai lama visit, and by 2015 those representing yunus  and the atlanta mayor quarreled over- so again the poor secretariat for the peace summit housed near the vatican in the same office of the green club of rome yet again had to move the summit

in those parts of the english speaking world where media is as fake as a PR lobbyist, its  all  very peculiar the gap between image making and reality making of human development -  its always local youth who lose when the great and the good fail to land an event that took many years to build- and which they  had started - but then got in the middle of canceling- it seems these days hard to help youth linkin to heroes of sustainability goals- but  i hope that the games of worldrecordjobs turn out to be ueful in spite of all of the above

as i no longer really trust what will happen in a weeks time, i try to help keep notes of summits on the world stage both vaut le voyage and which some superpowerful leader rips up after hundreds of years of prep by ordinary decent people


from recode daily
Jeff Bezos’s unorthodox approach to philanthropy. When the world’s richest man finally announced his $2 billion philanthropy fund after being notably absent for years from the world of serious charitable giving, he did something unusual: He gave $100 million each to two dozen homelessness nonprofits across the country, and then he let them do what they wanted with it. According to Recode’s interviews with eight of those funded by him and others familiar with his donations, Bezos wired the money with virtually no restrictions, formal vetting, or oversight. This stands in stark contrast to most other big-dollar donors, who tend to carefully review detailed proposals from charities before selecting them, place specific restrictions on how their money can be spent, and require thorough progress reports. Bezos isn’t doing any of that.
  • But is it a bad thing? Letting a nonprofit take your millions with limited oversight might sound like an irresponsible thing to do. But experts in the nonprofit world told Recode that Bezos’s strategy makes sense — with fewer restrictions and reports to fill out, charities can better focus on the work they have to do.

Organigram of guterres metahub of sustainability games

The job of uniting nations so that grandparents sustain their grandchildren & #DigitalCooperation out of every community by 2030 was always going to be politically difficult even if moores law application of trillion times more tech than needed to moon race sounded . Four years of europe's favorite fame mews brexit and us congresses favorite witch-hunt - hilary said donald said has disadvantaged everyone whose contribution to the human lot would ordinarily be and in the QueenEnglish

Thank goodness the UN is led by a Portuguese - who while loving his nation cant expect it to lead the world sustainability- well not untuil Brazil shows any sign of playing te supereconomy roile needed if those south of the equator to pull thier population weight as 10% of humans with quite a lot larger percentage of land and potenetially natural resources.

Our understanding is that Guterre\ was leading r5efugee work when the sdgs were launched- wghet5her he would have gone with 17 in terms of commubications mapping may be a moo0t point- what is not moot is he has done hsi vbest to find the suystems perosn within the UN or permenent frokends of SDG goals to be each sdg's economist while taking the connecting rile of goal 1 on as his overall moon race on earth, Note that goal 1 is also about the 300 trilion diooar fiaial gap and the lack of any process by which bankers not unly map sustainability infsratructire from noth to sorth but empower youth ceklebration at every new brdige, every new border win-wined. If ther5e i9s one thing we know about bidrers it is that6 when you bridge them mix up youth languages, arts, enetrepreur ecionomic zones. In other words a micro version of the one relevant idea of the eu to mix up the markets of geremany and frrances iron and steel so ther5e ws no need to war over these 2 then drivers of economics.

Facilitating learning, development, and healing for refugee children through play.

BRAC Humanitarian Play Labs

 Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh
Humanitarian Play Labs bring BRAC's signature low cost, high quality play-based learning model to the humanitarian context of the largest refugee settlement in the world in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh. They integrate playful learning with child protection, psychosocial support, and linkages to critical services; incorporate relevant cultural traditions; and engage both Rohingya and host communities.

What are Humanitarian Play Labs?

Hamida Akhter Jahan, BRAC Psychosocial Counselor
“Above all else, we want everyone who comes through these doors to know that they are safe here. While the situation outside may be uncertain, children can come here every day and be themselves. They can be happy and free.”
Hamida Akhter Jahan, BRAC Psychosocial Counselor
Nearly one million displaced Rohingya are living in crowded settlements in the Cox’s Bazar district of southern Bangladesh, having fled persecution in Myanmar. Violence against the Rohingya has persisted for decades, but following the mass exodus that began in August 2017, Cox's Bazar has become the site of the largest refugee settlement in the world, affecting hundreds of thousands of children and their families.
The majority of the newly displaced Rohingya are children, and almost 20 percent are under the age of five. Many of these children arrived in Cox’s Bazar unaccompanied.
In emergency and humanitarian contexts like Cox’s Bazar, children are extremely vulnerable to abuse, violence, and trafficking. It is vital to provide these children – and their caregivers – with psychosocial support, safe spaces, and playful early learning and stimulation opportunities that help address trauma, support healthy development, provide a sense of routine and normalcy, and restore cultural pride.
To address some of these children’s most pressing needs, BRAC has established Humanitarian Play Labs, which adapt BRAC's signature low cost, high quality early learning model, Play Labs, to the unique needs and constraints of the humanitarian context in both the Rohingya settlements and the host communities surrounding the settlements. The Play Lab model is an innovative play-based learning model for children aged 3-5, created in partnership with the LEGO Foundation. Designed to be adapted and scaled across a number of low-resource contexts, BRAC currently operates a network of Play Labs across Bangladesh, Uganda, and Tanzania. The Humanitarian Play Lab model builds on the success of Play Labs, refining and expanding the model to reach a wider age range of children in more challenging humanitarian contexts.
In order to build resilience and establish a sense of normalcy for children and adolescents in this fragile setting, Humanitarian Play Labs offer a play-based curriculum that incorporates instructional scaffolding to reach children aged 0-14. For many Rohingya children, the Humanitarian Play Labs are their first opportunity to gain access to education, or their first chance to be in a learning environment where educators are attentive to their individualized needs. Lessons incorporate physical play, rhymes, stories, dance, art, and more as tools for learning and healing. 
Humanitarian Play Labs also pay homage to Rohingya cultural heritage by utilizing traditional Rohingya rhymes, games, and activities and engaging mothers and community members in creating low-cost, culturally relevant play materials to support children’s language, motor, cognitive, and socio-emotional development.
In addition to education, Humanitarian Play Labs provide holistic support for Rohingya children. They incorporate child protection measures; link children to health, nutrition, and other services; and host parenting sessions that do the same. They also link children and their families to psychosocial support through group sessions and individual home visits conducted by barefoot counselors and para-counselors.
Each session in a Humanitarian Play Lab is jointly led by a woman from the Rohingya community and a woman from the host community, who speaks a dialect of Bangla similar to the Rohingya language. This model trains and empowers Rohingya women, and promotes person-to-person peacebuilding between the communities, which is critical in addressing tensions that are arising over strained resources.
A new, $100 million partnership with LEGO Foundation, Sesame Workshop, and International Rescue Committee will innovate upon the Humanitarian Play Lab model to incorporate Sesame Street's world-class multi-media learning content into BRAC's existing network of nearly 400 Humanitarian Play Labs and double the network to reach an additional 50,000 children. It will also bring learnings from BRAC's groundbreaking Humanitarian Play Lab model to inform work that Sesame Workshop and the International Rescue Committee are doing with refugee children in the Syrian response region.
Founded in Bangladesh in 1972 as a small relief effort, BRAC is now a world-class global development organization, and was ranked the number one NGO in the world for the fifth time in 2019. Humanitarian Play Labs build on the organization's expertise as one of the world’s leading education providers for marginalized children, with more than 11 million graduates and over a million current learners. 
With over four decades of experience working in nearly every corner of Bangladesh, BRAC has a deep knowledge of the context and strong relationships with local communities. As a result, when the refugee crisis began, BRAC mobilized resources from across the country in a matter of days. Currently, its more than 2,500 staff in Cox’s Bazar provide a range of services in addition to Humanitarian Play Labs including shelter, nutrition, health, water, sanitation, protection, and skills training, working in collaboration with UN agencies, governments, and other NGOs.
BRAC has identified the need for a long-term, sustainable model of child protection and education across multiple humanitarian contexts, and is currently creating a toolkit that will enable its Play Lab model to be contextualized and adapted for other resource-poor,  post-disaster, and humanitarian contexts around the globe.
