As we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the universal declaration of Human rights, IHDRF would like to hi-light excerpts of The Treaty of Rights authored in 661 AD. This is the first ever treatise to include compassion within the Governing constitution. #humanrightsday#humanrights#justice

You were in my dream last night
But your face was someone else’s

"La mera existencia humana nos obliga a reconocer diversos derechos, como el derecho a la vida, a la libertad, a la igualdad del trabajo, a la propiedad, los cuales deben ser respetados mediante la aplicación de normas que confieran seguridad jurídica, denominándose a los primeros como derechos humanos o del hombre y a las segundas como garantías constitucionales". - Pérez Salinas y Ramírez, M.

Learning more about results management, sustainable development in the Brazilian state of Ceara, innovative technology, and the importance of evaluations of public policies and various programs was revitalizing. It was especially exhilarating to hear about the different kinds of evaluations going on in Texas from Professor Flavio Cunha of Rice University and Texas Policy Lab and how they could apply here in Brazil. One particularly captivating study that is currently underway is one that evaluates children's learning environment at home by providing their mothers with voice recorders that after a few days are analyzed by artificial intelligence to measure how much and what is said in a household to determine the environment oflearning. Thinking this would be a great opportunity to introduce to IPREDE, Professor Guilherme Irffi of Universidade Federal do Ceará (who is an advisor at IPREDE and is working with me on the Mãe Colaboradora impact evaluation) and I urged Professor Flavio Cunha to come hear about the work in early childhood and mother empowerment that IPREDE does to see if a collaboration is possible. We were then able to host a meeting with Professor Flavio and all the IPREDE directors, which led to idea generation and a pathway to start working together with the AI technology. Collaboration, technology, and passion for making our world a better and more productive place is necessary for our futures.

Lead poisoning is a known neuro toxin that is extremely dangerous to unborn children. It took six more years for #NYC to begin testing every child under the age of 6 living in #NYCHA apartments resulting from a #classaction lawsuit currently in the courts. What becomes of the #kids and #families forced to move before they began testing?
Meet Tia Robinson, #mom to Priscilla age 2. Priscilla was born with a hole in her stomach. She relies on a gastric (stomach) feeding tube, a ventilator and additional machinery relying on electricity. 3 days after Sandy, Priscilla was evacuated to a hospital where she remains (at the time of this photo). After loosing power from Sandy and living in the unsanitary conditions of NYCHA the apartment complex, Priscilla became unstable. Tia reported that doctors are not sure if she will make it. If Tia pulls through she will be forced to move.

Il regime di Assad ha il controllo della maggior parte del paese e ci sono stati omicidi extragiudiziali in corso da anni in tutta la Siria", ha aggiunto, secondo un rapporto di Amnesty International del 2016 secondo il quale circa 13.000 prigionieri erano stati impiccati segretamente dal governo in una sola prigione tra il 2011 e il 2015...

🌡️🌍 👀 Последние две недели мы следили за климатическими переговорами (COP24) в Польше. Наблюдали за тем, как в разных странах мира люди требуют от собравшихся политиков более активных действий в борьбе с изменением климата! А что же Россия?
Мы, мягко говоря, не в числе климатических лидеров. В международном рейтинге The Climate Change Performance Index, в составлении которого приняли участие специалисты Гринпис, Россия заняла 52-е место из 60-ти возможных.
Этот рейтинг комплексно оценивает действия стран по борьбе с изменением климата. Примечательно, что первые три места остались пустыми: сегодня ни одна страна в мире не делает достаточно, чтобы предотвратить катастрофическое изменение климата.
📝 Верите ли вы в изменение климата 💚(+) или вы климатический скептик 🤔(-)? (Поставьте соответствующий смайл в комментариях, или +/-) Давай посмотрим, сколько среди нас и тех, и других.
