problem 99% of what people value connecting or doing to each other
has changed (and accelerated in last three quarters of a century- while laws, culture and nature's diversity and health are rooted in real-world foundations that took mother earth 1945 years to build with -and that's only using the christian calendar

1995 started our most recent quater of a century with 2 people in Seattle determined to change distribution of consumers' markets - the ideas of how of bezos and jack ma on what this would involve were completely different except that they changed the purpose of being online from education knowledge to buying & selling things -

my last happy 12 months in hungary and poland - maths guy tales of pope francis von neumann soros paul farmer yunus and

when my father norman macrae retired after 50 years at The Economist of celebrating whenever east and west and south -and tech wizards - helped to end poverty- especially that 400 years of british slave trading and colonisation had trapped most of 60% of humans are asia in - he spent a decade writing columns for other papers like the sunday times and doing john von neumann's biography

it was therefore a huge treat for me to attend the 20th open society awards hosted by soros out of his (central european)university in budapest- i am a maths guy so i always wanted to see the place where the turn of century 19 had brought up the greatest maths kids ever- on the happy days I visited budapest its a jewel of a city with people working so hard to get back on trading maps that over 40 years of cold war ripped asunder in east and south europe and eurasia, and which just as things seemed to be on the up the interventions in iraq libya and syria to name but 3 have caused so much border havoc that berlin and brussels have made worse for so many peoples peripheral to the german-french-luxembourg-belgium combine harvester

but the networking reason for being in budapest 2-12
where soros nominated his greatest hero as sir fazle abed and paul   farmer was seconding the celebrations on behalf of all health servants for the poor
but then the eu started collapsing - as always that means germany belgium luxembourg france externalise risks onto south and east europeans and now budapest having seen vast trains of refugees enter the eu via its borders has turned all angry especially against soros who had done nothing other than plant a university for enlightenment
there are 3 great human development miracles that have happened since i was born in 1950s - japan and all the far east islands eg singapore HK taowan (and isthmus korea s), china mainland, banagldesh- of these none are remotely possible to study in any american or west european university but bangladesh womens building of the 8th largest population born poorest in 1971 is the most heroic things that has ever happened on the ground (what most heroic in virtual space is a different section of worldrecordjobs.com though the two over;ap - see also www.economistbangla.com and www.womenuni.com and quarterbilliiongirls.com or help linkedin UNwomens

my family tried unsuccessfully to help dr yunus on 3 occasions- we were locked in to grameen compound in dhaka the day that nations supreme court  ruled that yunus was too old to lead a government bank, we help adam smith scholars on glasgow launch the yunus inspired journal of social business, and we helped yunus  challenge mainly black states university  presidents to celebrate their greatest (oops i mean community most caring as well as financially adept) young black entrepreneurs- there was supposed to be a grand finale  in atlanta in 2015 with black youth entrepreneurs across usa being celebrated by nobel peace lasureates

so i attended the 2013 laureate summit in warsaw where the redoutable lech walesa told his secrets of needing the moral support of pope john paul but where sadly gorbachev was not well  enough to speak- since then poland has caught some of the culturally dismal conflicts, the 2014 nobel peace laureate summit was moved from celebrating mandela because yunus could not accept south africa's refusal to give the dalai lama visit, and by 2015 those representing yunus  and the atlanta mayor quarreled over- so again the poor secretariat for the peace summit housed near the vatican in the same office of the green club of rome yet again had to move the summit

in those parts of the english speaking world where media is as fake as a PR lobbyist, its  all  very peculiar the gap between image making and reality making of human development -  its always local youth who lose when the great and the good fail to land an event that took many years to build- and which they  had started - but then got in the middle of canceling- it seems these days hard to help youth linkin to heroes of sustainability goals- but  i hope that the games of worldrecordjobs turn out to be ueful in spite of all of the above

as i no longer really trust what will happen in a weeks time, i try to help keep notes of summits on the world stage both vaut le voyage and which some superpowerful leader rips up after hundreds of years of prep by ordinary decent people
