US must lead if we are to avert a catastrophic loss of life

Reasons to be Humble

Benjamin Perks : Blogsite

It is humbling to work on global health and humanitarian communications in this moment. The vastness and vulnerability of the human race are breathtaking in equal measure. Talking with people in Nairobi, Geneva or Bangkok on how Covid19 could quickly collapse a fragile health system in a conflict zone or disrupt a medical supply chain on one continent causing a deadly drug shortage on another. Consulting on strategies for incentivising rebellious European teens to stay at home or to help impoverished children in low income countries stay safe without soap and water. Even the uncertainty of where we are heading. We are all vulnerable, in different, but equal ways. There is no ‘us and them’ this time.

People in Liverpool, Lagos and Laos are all social distancing and uber- handwashing as the virus wafts right across isolationist and nativist barriers. The nationalist orientations of just yesterday seem small and redundant…

Rural America at Risk

A Lawyer's Prayers

  • 25% of rural American children live below the poverty line [1].  As of 2013, that translated to over 2.6 million children.
  • 25% of rural Americans are unable to obtain regular health care due to distance [2].  Over 100 rural hospitals have shut their doors since 2010.  Burnout among overworked rural physicians is high.  Family medical practices in small towns are closing down.
  • Nearly 25% of rural Americans – 14.5 million – still have no access to broadband [3].
  • Meanwhile, large retailers like JC Penney, Sears, and Macy’s are abandoning rural America in droves [4].  Apart from requiring longer drive times by shoppers, this has resulted in a loss both of sales tax revenues and jobs.

Rural communities are being stressed from nearly every quarter [5].

How poverty is one of the worst enemies of humanity.

http://www.journalistandwriter.wordpress.com

Unfortunately the talent of people with learning difference from impoverished backgrounds particularly third world countries will never be realised.

Max Mteliso’s words

⁃ Arguably one of the most influential figures of our generation once said

⁃ If you are born poor it’s not your mistake but if you die poor it’s your mistake. (Bill Gates)

⁃ In other words he challenged every one living in abject poverty to break the vicious cycle in they bloodline and failure to do that shame on you.

⁃ The question is do you agree with Bill or not. Personally and to some extent I don’t. In some circumstances the rich will always be rich, unless they are stupid enough to loose it all. The poor will always find it hard to break through but it’s suffice to say that everyone in the right state of mind aspires to live a descent life even to make it big. Hence the phrase “Get Rich or Die Trying” which was coined in the ghettos of America. This phrase implies…

SOUTH AFRICA: The Facts and Stats (1994 from my letter to Walter Sisulu)

A South African Economist and Business Leader

Going back through my old writings on floppy discs (“antiques”) at the very beginning of “the writing journey” (in the days when I was “passionately pumping out letters to the various politicians in SA). It may be of interest in South Africa’s dramatic and relatively peaceful transition to democracy.
Perhaps I’ll turn into a new book. Oh no, not another one, c!

Dear Mr Sisulu
The following is a report that I wrote some time ago. I sent it to Mr Trevor Manuel on the 2nd of May this year, It was straight after the Election, but I heard that Mr Manuel had subsequently become a MP. I came across my report the other day and having hearde nothing, I wondered whether it had been received by your department. So I’m sending another one, just in case you are…
