Why not design future around 7 billion wonderful livelihoods

biden's biggest mistakes at day 100 include
*fake myanmar policy- needed biden and xi to respect each other
*folly grandeur euro trip- why not go to ireland first; why not publish servant leader questions to g7 and eu - see also what scots know about likelihood of extinction
*usa only has 2 borders on its continent - misunderstanding of how trump's evil wall is now 10 times more dangerous because of *covid- usa's failure to value black, latin or native peoples lives is a continent wide crisis- how the pompous democracy of dc can complain about china's struggles with 16 borders when usa has destroyed livesmatter across its continent beggars belief
*biden lives in a seventy-somethings timewarp- up to 1960 media hadn't yet ruined the possibility of public service even if the laws were still disgracefully racist in practice; today transitioning every 4 years means usa gov always behind tech- at a federal level usa is a worst nation at deep data AI at a time when only #aiforgood can resolve climate, health, education or any of the sdgs the younger half of the nation need to be empowered by
if kamala harris has a culturally diverse voice all over the world, then there is no ambassadorial momentum fanning this- what exactly is biden's living script for harris's purpose
15 april 2021.WELCOME JAPAN'S PRESIDENT SUGA- cjab why only the people of China Japan America Bangladesh can save our species........before you say boo MAY I clarify 3 things - the CJAB are THE PEOPLES not the big public or private organisations of China, Japan, America, Bangladesh. Until the death of jfk the peoples of america (under 4% of humans lives, probably a network of less than 1000 top-down leaders) kindly stepped in and ended the old world's wars, and extraordinary technologies that emerged from usa by 1957 were sufficient for japan to relaunch in a way humans had never seen before...

Sustainability gravitates around mother earths core on how peoples' sd-goals collaboratively leap ahead of machine revolutions applied to the 5 most basic determinants of life : 2 food&water, 3 health, 4 education, 1 finance, safe resilient community. I know this is extremely naiive but in 1973 at age of 22 when I left Britain's number 1 maths network (Dampt in Cambridge ) my dream was in some small way to advance the human lot with statistics. It was a strange time for that dream- just 7 years earlier in 10th grade in school, all we had to calculate with was the slide ruler or a logs book; i was then one of the first people in britain to see a japanese electronic calculator then a government computer during a 6 months gap in being educated; all through my ba first distinction in maths, and my cambridge ma in statistics none of us students had direct access to a computer. Even the most famous mathematician i ever nearly got run over by steve hawkins never used a computer to do maths but he did need one to free his voice

my experience: reality of species survival is opposite of media spin; ultimate inconvenient truth we grand parents/parents must grab hold of immediately if the younger half of the planet = first sustainability generation; and they are our species last best chance; to delay another decade facing up to globally misleading directions that have been spun since amazon became a web will answer the bard's ultimate question negatively

CJAB2020s ANNUAL COVID BOOSTERS 4/15 will covid be with us through the 2020s? the question is beginning to be asked.. its probably a good thing japan is the olympics host because its daily broadcasting on covid events reality treats the audience as smart enough to cope with the latest truths

 2021 offers a whole new world of amerucan connections starting with state department secretary blinken 

market by market it will be fascinating to see - is the new world of pharma to be dominated by those who share life saving drugs at cost or will it go back to 2010s when much of big pharma spent its time on addictining peoles to opiuum - highly profitable for a few global corporates - tragic for we the peoples

it seems that wall street believes post covid will make the biggest western corporations bigger- this seems to me to conflict with anyone or everyone who wants 21stc youth to be the first sdg generation

“Take, make, use, dispose,” is the traditional model our global economy has operated by for generations. Due to the buildup of waste and the growing challenges posed by climate change, companies and communities around the world are trying to make the transition to a circular economy model, which aims to minimize the use of resources and the production of waste. But implementing this circular model requires rethinking how we produce products and changing consumer behavior. 

In this session, leading experts will discuss how we can accelerate the transition to a truly circular system in which products and their materials are kept in the economy. What are the greatest challenges and opportunities on the path to circularity? And how can circularity be a key driver of business growth across economic sectors?
