Why not design future around 7 billion wonderful livelihoods

feb 2022, wash dc-sadly idea of every 3 year old up merits a next door playschool seems to be taking inside beltway lawyers longer than landing on the moon - so women4empowerment have moved collab networks for 3 years up to Abedplay.com.. The debate on whether DC wants every American to be valued by Artificial Intel and hi-trust media ERevolution last chance at the metaverse continues below. May we also suggest EconomistDiary.com if you wish to tap into 4 hemisphere discussions of what the blip is happening to your young graduates era of 100 times more machine maths every decade (since 1951) when an economist sub-editor was briefed by Von Neumann on the biggest journalism scoop of all time and any sustainability generation
After the first year of Biden we can see that in spite of enough technology to save the human race, corralled by insanely lonely men like Mr Putin we are racing faster than ever towards extinction half way through the 15 year period that all nations had committed to the sustainability goals (ecop26 EUN). Why is this? - its a problem of media- which in turn is a wicked Keynesian problem of Governance, Societal and Environmental Markets (known the other way round by worlds biggest decision makers as ESG -see NYccAI.com for 15 annual spring briefings).
CRIMSON LIFESTYLES: Although Harvard has taken as late as 26 April 2022 to admit their debt to black americans is way north of 100 million dollars (imagine if they had admitted this before Biller Gates designed DOS). other far north friends and I can trace through my family ( diaspora scots, irish...) why the root cause of this [problem is that white institutions have not cared locally enough about the simplest human right : that of the next girl or boy born anywhere to have a fair chance of life.

My family has a lot of evidence on this ; in our case it can be classified around tHEse time periods: 2022 to 2000; TO 1984 TO 1976 TO 1962 TO 1945 TO 1936 TO 1758 - each of which we observed  FROM SOME QUITE DEEP GLOBAL VILLAGE DATUM

1962 back to 1951 back to 1945; 1951 was for my family the occasion of the greatest jopurnalist scoop ever; von neumann briefed my father on asking leaderes about what would they do with 100 times more tech every decade to 2020s (som,e now call this industrial revolution 3, 4; in silicon valley from 1965 they have also called its moore's law; my father's small role in future histoiry : he asked economist jouramlsits to appply this question for the next third of the century; this too the economist from 1951 3rd ranked weekly journal to one of a kindf gloabal viewspaper; The Economist had a weird history it was born in 1843 as a royal society chat sheet that got turned into queen visctora's attermpt to chnage english constitution from presiding over slave making empire to commonwealth); this has been the crisis embedded in tyhe english mindset since the beginning of engines scotalnds 1760s (some would say since the beginning of discovery on new worlds started in 1490s when the race started to own the most agressive navy)

2022 back to 2000 -business & social models of mobile digital age spun hatred and short-termsim opposite to sdgs; raised bodres between nations during the period all human communities needed to go borderless on human right goal 2000 back to 1984 (we lost the chnace to value the web as the an open learning network to shortt term commerce and nastier media)m/TD> 1984 back to 1976 ( by now my father was launching the new socio-economic genere of entrepreneuriual revolution with 15 yeras of evidence of cases on asia rising through a blend of supervillaige and supervity whose trades needed over time to be winw-in not zero sum; in fact if voin eneuman used the vocabularu IR3 - he would definme that as eera of applying 100 times more etch to way above zero sum games- THE OPPOSITE TO LEGISLATIRS UP TO 1945)1976 back to 1962 (we lost what presidents up to and particularly keennedy understood of the overarching challenge of uni8ted nations; at the same time the birth of the eu core purpose got lost by 1962) 1945 back to 1935: this corresponds to the uniques development period of my father from teenb home schooled in british embassies in moscow and horler's europ to spending his last days as teen allied boimber command burma to surviving woeld wars 2 being mentored by keynes, the economist's geoggery crwother and von neumann; in 1949 dad amrried the daughter of sir kenneth kemp who had written up teh legalese of india's independence;  1935 back to adam smith 1758  this explains why my my family tree was intersection of 4 generation osf scots in inda who had been nurses, pharmacists and social lawyers; and 4 generations of scots who had been missionaries, transnational dimplomats and whatever you call my father and myself ( i would say I am a (future histiry) of mathematician but with at best one hyndredth of the mind of the greatest maths nmetwo9rk that ever lived neumann , einstein et al. i desperately need help from every gps on the plant in recording why particularly whites have not yet designed goverance systems to value right of every next child born - but I belive its valid to ask:

what exactly was the conflict in 1945 between the 8 biggest empires - g8 twhite and japan; in addition what other conflicts were the g8 surrounded by all white developed nations- in essence engines from 1760 were applied by white men to rule over world trade; in effect less than 15% of the human race had designed almost all the world's wealth for themselves or the nations they lived in ; this was the root cause of world war 2 which the united nations needed to mediate over at most 4 generations - from those returning frow war through to today's younger half of teh wrold who will inherit systems which expoenetially lock them into extcinction unless the 2020s turmns thi round

2021 - 21st year of 21st C that wash dc has wasted every millennial's future

 Democracy 2.1 Inconvenient Question: seriously has washington DC had a year in 21st C that has improved the world of 7.5 billion beings or even the state of the majority of americans 

-meanwhile - here's gzero epitaph on 2021

Joe sinks Joe. It looks like US President Joe Biden has come to the end of the road with his $1.75 trillion Build Back Better Plan, now that Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) has announced flatly he’ll vote “no.” With the Senate split 50-50, Biden needs every Democrat vote in the chamber. The White House haggled with Manchin for months — “dancin’ for Manchin”, you might say. Biden even cut the proposed spending in half. But the moderate Manchin said he still “couldn’t get there” because of concerns about the deficit, and further stoking already high inflation. Republicans, of course, are ecstatic, because passing BBB is Biden's key pitch for Americans to vote for Democrats in next year's midterms and re-elect him (or another Democrat in his place) in 2024. It's not too late to reach a fresh compromise on the bill, but the longer the Dems keep squabbling, the longer their odds of retaining control of Congress next November.

 hello sunday starts 12 days of global education summits unlike any ever blended -see eg http://www.abedplay.com 

all three hub out of asia which makes sense in population terms but is sad for a diaspora scot with dc family   ; a black maryland teacher just won million dollar teacher prize last week doubtless her 500 college athletes will never meet women world's biggest money earners -japan's osaka and america's biles 


I am not sure if i have the right address for steve's friend michael probably the main charter school entrepreneur among us (clara botstein's regional partnerships dc-baltimore bridging high school and partnerships seems a different model but still trying to understand where climate's or arts' 10th-12th grade curriculum of heffersons children meets college students and up; I only met him once near washngton cathedral; I probably met him before others apart from harrison and sunita; michael had just written a book called flow which I understood to be mainly sponsored by john mackey

 if i understand correctly john kiehl (new york amd bostons leading music studio) has sound edited 2 films for mackey who is deeply concerned with where food supply chains meets nature; before ever there was virtual commerce there was mackey trying to build high quality food chains supplying usa out of texas; to start 2000 as eg open source searls and weinberger's The Cluetrain Manifesto came and went  with dotcoms and the bushwhacking of gore , I met heath at fast company's offices while he was still coordinating 200 social enterprise evening clubs (100 internationally) at  hq in boston (a year before godammed facebook) and later partly introduced alan whom i met at melissa's smiths business school umd to muhammad yunus - in any event webber who had sold fast company went on to compere the first global social business summit in berlin 2009 as well as write a usa today article asking why hadnt yunus got the nobel economics prize; mackey was arguably one of 2 american busienssmen to support yunus at corporate brand levels of leadership unless you count cnn's turner twin birth of unwomen and unfoundation; mackey tried to support microcredits in dev world places where whole foods did permanent sourcing and found conscious capitalism chapters; at the time intel's ceo craig barrett was the most extraordinary digital supporter of yunus aiming to help with digital agri and digital education; barrett retired and went off to focus on arizona states business school the tech leading OSUN partner of sharing graduate of sdg generation around the world; and then of course mackey 2010s were to soon go the way of bezos ; I understand mackey retires from whole foods next september and meanwhile one or two of us are finding out if he has a next plan

I could go on with many peoples inspiring stories but my question is do we know people who run best charter schools or playschools that all americans could adapt if america goes green in time; and do we know anyone who will effectively lead the design of how 400 billion dollars on schools of 3-5 years olds is spent; out of india sunita's family are I would say the school and methods from india all need to know first; they can deliver literacy in 30 hours among other action learning curves from montessori; meanwhile fazle abed built the worlds largest non government school system at the time when the millennial goals funded primary and safiqul designed the curriculum that pretty much every village school across bangladesh franchised 

and so when abed founded a university in 2001 - the last part of the total human development of education was playschools 3 to 5 year old; he set about with lego, and hong kong billionaires yidan as funders making sure 50 countries started experimenting with loving spaces for 3 to 5 year olds- many of the first locations outside bangladesh was refugee borders; which brings us to how will 400 billion dollars be spent next door in usa - see NextDoor Playschools 3 to 5 year olds as one example of how to chat across maryland neighborhoods; in truth the only affordable playschool design I have come across in america is rev al's the real testimony to the community where thurgood marshall grew up

I dont even know if i have got everyone's emails right; if you do see connections with or without me please tell someone;  out of glasgow cop26 where I have known smith scholars since 2008 we have a very strange problem ; people came to continue launch 1000 college teach in on climat with glasgow but no scottish vice chancellor turned up nor did gordon brown who goes all the way to dubai ro rewire branches of un education in spite of glasgow being abed's and all of engineering's alma mater and way back in 2016 at abeds 80th birthday - soros abed and bankimoon assumed colleges the world  in year 1 of sdgs 15 climax over might want their graduate students to be free to be climate collaboration entrepreneurs economistwomen.com join in women's 36 happiest collabs in sustainability generation - having shared the same classroom as david attenborough's son age 9 I dont know what to ask the attenborough family ;my dad having script written for prince charles tour of japan I dont know how to help prince charles multiple connection of royal geo society british consuls, forestry and microsolar

Subject: Mike commits $750 million to public charter schools

Mike Bloomberg: From the Bullpen


Mike believes that the future of our country depends on bold changes to education -- and he just announced a major investment designed to set those changes in motion for thousands of American public school students.

In a short video posted today and a Wall Street Journal op-ed, Mike unveiled a five-year, $750 million national initiative to advance and expand access to public charter schools.

The funding in 20 U.S. metro areas, including New York City, will support existing charter and autonomous schools, open new high quality charter schools, foster city- and state-level conditions for sustainable progress, support charter school teachers and leaders of color, and create 150,000 additional charter school seats for children.

Investing in Education


Facebook Twitter LinkedIn

This investment in public charter schools builds on years of advocating for student success and calling for greater accountability in our schools. Mike has seen first-hand the impact that public charter schools can have -- as well as the challenges they face from entrenched interests.

His redoubled focus comes after failures in the public education system have gone from bad to worse since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Students everywhere have suffered learning loss, while already substantial achievement gaps for low-income and children of color grow even wider.

"We need a new, stronger model of public education that is based on evidence, centered on children, and built around achievement, excellence and accountability for all," Mike wrote in the Wall Street Journal. "The future of America’s most vulnerable children -- and of our country -- is riding on whether we can deliver it."

speker asks ryan forst

context continuum last 10 minths when bideb eneterded office us-china had become disfunbtional public dgeradation of both sudes- tried to restore trust; put a floor for going forward - runaway escalation not in eitehr sides interests; ryan i expect doemstiv issues will dominate next 12 months - netwother side will wnat to bee seen as soften ing so frim ceilining as well as floor


chengl liomtellectaul stimulating briefing'

my reading sucess on both sides - last 3 yeras amazing cricisosm of ach oether causing huge risks inclusing inetrnet acidentasl

this meeting on its own is not goinf to reset stability -wil takke much nore world but does biden have platform at hime to make progress - does ci with hsi elections in may

still we mst stop free fall in relations - we need ersposbility on both sides of leaders group

---josh- i agree with what ryan and chind said - nb there was little of last noght on trade /economic releationships- so we are saying that is stuck for year - biden has to redesign doemstic siti=uation - wider focus on how allies come into this - provides resetting - nothing saig on hot button tarifs? we know ambassasfdor tsia on us side is conntuing trump ntrade relationsnhip until something both sides co-craete; purs responsibility on china compaliace - ...

jesica view- i see thsi similatly; to josh - wasnt meeting expecting outcomes; on the values dside there is no quicj room for manouevre on eiteher sude ; yech issues being advanced in ither forum eg tgc quad


tound 2 - question of taiwan  (andera mitcelsls cps , camiilas shift cbs)

will floor hold; are gurad rails enough ..

ryan very intersting tos ee both sides readout on this issue - still quite a lot of difference - but beijing claruifies it accepts biden has never argued for taiwan independece but frustartion is adminsitration internatioanlsoation if issue by us to japan, korea keeps making noise on teh sussue - traeatng taiwan as feature of us-chian competition - this yaiwan approach unites republican d dmeocrativ politicians (yuk!!0

-both sides frustrated by tehse traifs - where will progress begin - austrlaima nanswer - at some level relationship has ti be betetr than being in strom trump

tamping down teh teemperatur - focus on what really maters to usa; tarife xclusinon where chian is the only supply source;; 550 bn trade even during covid show there is extreme trade interdependence - ploticians weaponsising both sudes; why doe this helpmpeoples?

ryan tech is core of competition - we both need to play defense - prevent leak of our tech

but important we play offence - we need to get back to attracting best world talent in tech


moserator jake put empgasis on leader to leader dialogue

how isvthatsustained? eg qyuarantining still making travel hard for leaders circles

xi calls biden old friend which biden shrugs off

cheng- biden said you and i should not be that formal - 11 meeting ; 4 tike mainly one to on; traveled together; used to phone each other a lot under obama-- xi said china will consider access to business men easing after covid---- can we get back to person person meetings;; this wasfirst time leades taked about fitre collab on health

Washington DC - The Careless Years part 2 1995-2008

 In 1984 The Economist, father norman and I published a future history the 2025 report.com - what needed to colaboratively go well as human beings became more digitally connected than physically separated

whether we like it or not washington dc (the peopels who lobby , politic, policy make. meia rule, rehulate, legislate...) had by 1984 become the world's one and only superpower - and what 95% or 99.9% of the world needed was 2025-1985 to transform away from big brotherdom powering over the world to little sister community rising empowerment everywhere - what my father and roman prodi had in 1976 surveyed as entrepreneurial revolution (dec 25 1976) and which gifford pinclot alumni added to with intrapreneurship (see eg 1982 surveys). The reason why DC had alreadt assumed this role by 984 is onscured by fake date the CIA distributed- it suited the CIA to keep up the storuy that rissia was an economic superpower- it wasnt; unless you used fake currency conversions Russia (or USSR) was already 10 times less entrepreeurially powerful than the USA although oddly enough this was due to misorganising 2 systems ( in all probailty russi owned more energy repources than the whole of teh rest of the planet apart possibly from the arabian desert), russian technologists/education had created millions of scientofically capable peo[;le but unless employed to control teh state they were earning a hundredth of what world's leading engineering minds could earn anywhere else; dc's and indeed teh eu's missed opportunity of 1984-1995 was to welcome peacful russian engineers all over the world; anyhow while I understand that the mental twisties that would have required washington elites were ptobably incocivable creative- there is no excuse for what DC [presided over 1995-2008 - in summary

dc did not understand what the west coast was up to as it replaced learning wes with short-term commerce

dc did not celebarte public media becoming msart about sustainability challenges across all 200 nations

dc conflated misinformation on chemical weapons with its warmongering - from 1 saddam had no chemical weapons to 2 antrax was out of contrul inside usa; to hailing to learn from antrax dc let big pharma continue to sioise bilologicla war fare - vene though all of gates bust and google knew in 2005 that the big data of epidemics needed to be the priority for mapping cloud data linked to every gps that was lost in dc's stupidest failure of all - subpriming the wprld

by the time 1995-2008's failures has led almost everyone who had made dc decision 195-2008 to blaming each other (or blaming some fictitius foreign influences from such extraordinary party politcal vanitoies) the 8 yeras of teh obama administration was set up for wasting te millennial generatuon teenage yeras (refunding the same peopel who had caused subprime was a disma poison pil to trap every main street in - and worse the ear of go gren never took roots) so when 7 no trumps came along the hatred within dc was easy to spread to every state- america of the 2020s is the worst possbible example of democarcy - spub by hpow much advertising money your lobby controls); it has very sad consequences for the 4% who live in america and as the oxford union concluded teh week before cop26 it means usa is the last place the world can expect to find the love of other peopels needed if 2020s is tiend extinction and start reducing the ever spiralling budgets spent on armed warfare instead of fal=milies nurturing children and mother nature doing her bit to feed every child with clean air, water, food, brainstimulation that education could have been if we had belned the happiest of real group working and worldwide digital collaboration

 A Web 3.0 Ally?

Yesterday, the Biden administration named Lina Kahn, a 32-year-old Columbia Law professor, as the new head of the Federal Trade Commission. Khan, who will be the youngest FTC head ever, is known as a fierce critic of big tech monopolies like Amazon. While there’s often a knee-jerk resistance to regulation and regulators among blockchain advocates, Khan’s concerns make her a potential ally on big issues like privacy. Her antimonopoly work could also create substantial market opportunities for new kinds of tech businesses – including those building decentralized systems and “Web 3.0.”


Enforcing U.S. antitrust law is a major part of the FTC’s mandate, and Khan is probably best known for helping redefine just what a “monopoly” is. She has been crucial, in part during seven years at the Open Markets Institute, in developing and promoting the idea that a company can be a monopoly even if its practices drive prices down – even, in fact, if its product is free to consumers. This largely hinges on how the firms gather and use data: Khan has been among the loudest critics of the way Amazon uses data gathered through its storefront, such as leveraging sales data to compete with third-party sellers who are, no less than shoppers, its customers.
Khan may also have a higher chance of advancing her own legislative and regulatory agenda than some other members of the Biden administration. At the most divisive moment in American politics since the 1960s,

as a statistician and someone who loves exploring every culture from joyful community spaces needed for families to build future generations sustainably

i hope and pray that biden and harris and kerry are not trapped in the white man's myth that sustainability of 7.5 billion people would be simple if only the world obeyed the laws of white men out of washington dc and brussels. To understand the crises - health, climate, poverty, educartonal, media- that make the 2020s our races last chance to get to 2100 we need to agree on ethnicities and 4 main industrial revolutions which involve valuing exponential innovation not ruling over the past

about 5% latin american
about 13% white of which about 9% were free white and about 4% got trapped in the ussr- before we go further look at a map- there are 2 iced up roofs of the world; most of what we may call non-free white came from places where most land was dced up and woth nothing bur some labd was huge carbon energy;
perhaps 1% are native peoples and/or islanders in small separate nations- the latter depend on huge ocean states but depended on exchanges to even be included in the 4 industrial revolution

it is probably true that in 1962 7 years after the conceptualistion of the eu, washington dc and the group of free nations the eu was to include in its expansion ruled over 80% of the finacial system, 80% of scientific knowledge but was the purpose of this to sustain ever more of all peoples and nature or ever fewer of rich old whites

that's a democracy question biden needs to be sure he has explored before the world goes forward from covid, truly takes on climate, and other sdgs the younfer half of the world need every community to be empowered to connect

this brings us to understanding 4 industrial revolutions- two had played out and led to world wars; the two new ones were imaginable by 1962 thanks to the legacy of von neumann

ir1 was about the power of engines; before powerful engines 95% of life was rural- capials mainly organised shipping world trades; almost everything in a big city today depends on the power of engines- to build buildngs transporation, utilities such as electricity and running water

we choose to call ir2 the power of communications and media- start with the telephone, telegram , radio, television, satellite powered versions of those- all of these were viewably by 1962 but they were also all about to change again because of neumann's 3rd and 4th revutions

we find it easiest to call ire 100 times "moore-law" analytic power than slide ruler and paper analyses every decade-trilllion times moore by 2020 than coded 1960s moon landing- this is unprecdeted exponemtial change where legislaring over laws written in stone is not smart

 how would that change every livelihood, both in growing trade and sustaining communities where each next child might be born

in our exploration of the world which the economist started writing about as an exploration of neumann's legacy 2020s was the time when we started asking wha systems prevuously governed by humans do we rurn over to machines because only machines can in real time compute and communicate all the data to make any autonomous system work- whehert hat is self driving cars which we wish silicon valley had not prioriised or the logistics of immunising 7.5 billion people within one year which we beieve needed to be one of the first ai collaborations to sustain humanity
if anyone thinks the eu and dc can rule over such ai challenges without applying any of the brans that havent coe from rich white world then plese stand up and admit that is what all your science, pension investent , media politics is based on but for the rest of us we hope and pray biden has the curiosity of children looking in from every gps coordinate mobilised or autonomised as to be or not to be

canada offers a relatively good/shared model of living with iced up continent ; alaska bought from russia uffers a different model; of course there are free parts of the arctic circle like nordica which offer world leading models but they are water facing they are not locjed in continents

does biden have a foreign policy - this hot fortnight may well determine everything- meanwhile despatching vp to latin america seems to exclude women and asians

to be clear the biggest decline in human fortune during bidens 125 days seems to be either latin am or india but i think its incomprehensible not to include kamala on bidens first western tour but then i am jusr a diaspora scot damtp systems alumni- what the flip do i know about the first 260 years of humans, machines, ...  climates,  ... livesmatter

biden tours the west for the last time before cop26?.. and what a tour it is- one hopes he is accompanied by notes takers of 360 degree diversity

from the head of the second biggest royal family 

to the self-styled g7-squared; to the eu doubling up its lobby power to putin to understand g7 futures the way yes sustainability celts can start here 

to understand russia we quote from mike allen axios/hbo

Secretary of State Tony Blinken told me during an "Axios on HBO" interview that President Biden is meeting with Vladimir Putin nine days from now "not in spite of" the cyberattacks that disrupted U.S. meat and gas supplies: "It's because of them."

  • Biden will tell Putin "directly and clearly what he can expect from the United States if aggressive, reckless actions toward us continue," Blinken told me in the grand Benjamin Franklin State Dining Room.

Blinken said the U.S. "would prefer a more stable relationship" with Russia.

  • "I can't tell you whether I'm optimistic or not about the results," he added. "I don't think we're going to know after one meeting, but we'll have some indications ... We're prepared either way."

Blinken sees his Job 1 as reconnecting with allies, and he said he's found a real thirst for U.S. engagement.

  • "Our partners see the same thing that we do," he said. "If you're looking at all of the really big problems that we're trying to solve — ... like the pandemic, like climate change, like emerging technologies ... — no one country can do it alone."
  • Blinken added that when the U.S. isn't leading, China and others fill the vacuum, "and maybe not in a way that advances our interests or values": "We've certainly seen China ... try to fill voids where we've been relatively disengaged."

On the Israel-Gaza conflict, I asked Blinken what'll happen if Israel produces no smoking-gun evidence that Hamas was occupying the building, housing AP and Al-Jazeera, that Israel bombed after a warning.

  • "President Biden's been very clear: Israel has the right to defend itself, and it was on the receiving end of indiscriminate rocket attacks," Blinken began.
  • "However, having said that: Israel, as a democracy, I think has an added burden to make sure it is doing everything possible to avoid civilian casualties. ... I think one of the things that we found ourselves, speaking only for the United States, is that the more transparency you can provide, the more legitimacy you're going to have."

Watch a clip: Blinken vows to hold China accountable on Wuhan. (what does this mean - until the 2001 antrax scare is transparently reported as an nih responsinility- so is covid- after all nih is the world sponsor in experiments - to blame wuhan is a bit like blaming bhopal for union carbide unless of course big governments everywhere are going to come clean on every risk to our species they have been covering up by priorising national security over species extinction

one more strike and fairness biden is gone for failing to take on rotten state governors -meanwhile class action should be prepped


We now know, as reported by Baltimore Sun last week, that contrary to the state health officials’ claims of an equitable vaccine distribution system based on population sizes, Montgomery and other largest counties’ health departments received the lowest doses for the first two and half months of the vaccination process. 

Apparently, because the Maryland Department of Health put Montgomery County in the same tier as all other “large” counties with over 200,000 residents, we ended up getting the same minimum doses - 975 doses per week, as much smaller counties like Harford County which has a quarter of our population size. At the same time, some of the smallest counties got the largest share. 

While things are improving with time and supply, the House and the Senate continue to put pressure on the state health officials for much greater data transparency and accountability, which has been sorely lacking.

green biden headline 1

 while its great symbolism that biden has rejoined climate protocol within hours of presidency the reality of america's last 4 years

wasted million hours of work around world- americans are among the least trusted on climate unless they have actions to share

disillusioned youth and educators- numerically far more youth trust china than usa because of climate

the poorest in dev world lost their lives/livelihoods when climate is more variable /less safe

glasgow is 5 generations of my family's home capital - i know the bbc nature correspondents and royal society leaders of youth as sustainability generation- including which royal families around the world

to make it clear, american lobbytists/investment funds who dont transparently value climate will be wasting their time if they send anyone including fake media to glasgow- see 10 years of our journal edited by adam smith scholars and supported by most of scotlands venerable universities- join ban ki-moons zoom summit next week -see economistdiary.com for rehearsals on road to and from glasgow; scan ai green epicentres eg ai earth by microsoft

chris.macrae@yahoo.co.uk washington dc economistgreen.com

ps biden/obama record on green jobs is awful- obama was dealt rotten hand on finance just as biden gets rotten hand on finance and health- if thewre are no real green actions of biden in first 100 days he risks losing trust 

help ID top 20 biden/harris issues in first 100 days

 i=top 10 international; d=top 10 domestic

biden to sign about 15 exectutive orders in next 24 hours

d1 - beat virus - promise 100 million arms vaccinated - masks must be worn i federal places- how does operations intel double loop - from local gov of last mile service to federal 

d2 save communities' economies  -how do get best of small enterprise and gov not worst of big business and big bureaucracy- t a time when what can be innovated with tech is changing yearly dut depends on transparency of open data

d3 what is the pathway to all lives matter - how common/different are actions different undervalued groups need - women, youth, skin color, faith , - what are the system challenges - eg lack of health, transport, safety, livelihood opportunity 

d4 how to deal with failure of us education at every level -see crow scripts on faliure of university- gordo brown scripts on failure of schools; review which parts of un are engaing new tech and new youth mobilsation in being first sustaiability generation- where is massive coopeartiohn opposite of massive individual examination

i1 can america design an asia policy humanising technology - two thirds of people- that helps younger half world sustain love and action sdgs, not hate across borders, not destruction of sdgs by biggest investors

12 in addition to climate which agreements rest of world put hundreds of years of hi-level work on that trump tore up will biden renew- and does america understand how no national leader needs american advice until or unless america shows ihow to end covid
