Jamie Oliver: Teach every child about food
Very true indeed. A lot of the road blocks can be difficult to remove without the statutory recognition of the problem and institutional commitment from the top. Jamie's grassroot vision nonethless calls for certain forms of top-down implementation. I sincerely hope for his wish to come closer to reality in the near future when more people across the board can start to share his concern.

David Blaine: How I held my breath for 17 minutes
Without such a personal account of the pains and hard work he's gone through, it'd be hard to fathom anything but magical tricks or illusion in accomplishing the impossible. My lungs started to contract at the idea of oxygen deprivation for that duration. Endurance is not born or given but obtained by pushing your limit at every common occasion. "it's practice, it's training and experimenting while pushing through the pain to be the best i can be." David Blaine is a true inspiration.

George Ayittey: Africa's cheetahs versus hippos
one might have noticed how the boom in modern communication technology could challenge the traditional channels of investment and donation made to Africa. Removing layers in the communication & increasing transparency seems to be a viable and effective way of removing reliance on gov. authorities. in so doing, micro-financing and direct fund to project match can be made possible. When we decry the dysfunctionality of the authorities, the question must be asked what are the means to turn to the alternatives and what has yet to be put in place fascinating and thought-provoking talk indeed!
