The View From the End of the Great Wall of China

The View From the End of the Great Wall of China | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
Everyone has seen pictures of China's Great Wall before, but most of those images come from a handful of viewpoints just outside of Beijing, where all the tourists tend to visit. Given that the wall stretches for over 5,500 miles, there's quite a bit more that you almost never see.While the tourist areas are well-maintained and often renovated, much of the wall has been left to rot and is now being reclaimed by nature. In these images gathered by Kuriositas, it's striking to see just how

Cloward–Piven strategy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cloward-Piven strategy

The Cloward-Piven strategy is a political strategy outlined in 1966 by American sociologists and political activists Richard Cloward and Frances Fox Piven that called for overloading the U.S. public welfare system in order to precipitate a crisis that would lead to a replacement of the welfare system with a national system of " a guaranteed annual income and thus an end to poverty".

Al Cannistras insight:

Interesting read - could it be the strategy of today?

The Top 10 Safest Airlines In The World - The Sliced Bread Club

The Top 10 Safest Airlines In The World - The Sliced Bread Club | INTELLIGENT WORLD TODAY | Scoop.it
#10 Air New Zealand There hasnt been a significant incident on the Kiwi airline for 20 years, plus it was named best airline in the world recently. #9 Singapore Airlines They have excellent service and havent been involved in an accident in 15 years. #8 Finnair Scandinavian innovation and efficiency is clear on this airline …
Al Cannistras insight:

Finnair is a great airline, awesome record – but depending on destination, not for the faint of heart. On the homeward flight, standing in the 2 room airport  (right 2 rooms, in/out) we could not see the plane which was 25 ft outside the window. The blizzard was blinding. The runway could not be seen. We took off. I guess the mooses and reindeers know enough to stay off the runway when they hear the jet engines!

In the world today, the number of homeless people grow by the minute. While parents lose their jobs, more and more children are abandoned and left on the streets to beg money for food. As life gets harder, they lose friends on the way until they are left alone to support themselves with nothing.
