Mi prendo la libertà di ripubblicare un vecchio post di questo blog, data la sua attualità in tempi di “fake news” e discussioni sul ruolo dei media e libertà dell’informazione.
Basketball as a school of life. Watch how players created a school in a slum near Nairobi, Kenya and helped local kids improve their life.
This is the best of the lot so far 🙂
One must love Naomi …
More on Hans Rosling. Lots to learn.
Let’s enjoy this while we still can…
Hilarious, and terribly sad to realize it is all true.
A very good use of a Saturday evening.
REQUIEM FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM is the definitive discourse with Noam Chomsky, on the defining characteristic of our time – the deliberate concentration of wealth and power in the hands of a select few. Through interviews filmed over four years, Chomsky unpacks the principles that have brought us to the crossroads of historically unprecedented inequality – tracing a half century of policies designed to favor the most wealthy at the expense of the majority – while also looking back on his own life of activism and political participation. Profoundly personal and thought provoking, Chomsky provides penetrating insight into what may well be the lasting legacy of our time – the death of the middle class, and swan song of functioning democracy. A potent reminder that power ultimately rests in the hands of the governed, REQUIEM is required viewing for all who maintain hope in a shared stake in the future.
A great loss in these sombre times when the ability to make truth emerge is more needed than ever. Let’s remember Hans Rosling as one of the greatest educators and ‘gapminder’ of our time.
