Why Some Countries Are Poor and Others Rich
 
08:48
The reason why some countries are rich and others poor depends on many things, including the quality of their institutions, the culture they have, the natural resources they find and what latitude they're on.

Top 33 World's Largest Copper Producing Countries
 
07:33
Copper is one of the most used metal by man; it is an essential element for building construction, power generation and transmission, electronic product manufacturing, and the production of industrial machinery and transportation vehicles. There is no evidence that copper even can be absorbed through the skin. But if it were, this could actually lead to copper poisoning, which may actually be more likely than beneficial effects, that is why it is also s vital to the health of all living things (humans, plants, animals, and microorganisms). In humans, copper is essential to the proper functioning of organs and metabolic processes. The human body has complex homeostatic mechanisms which attempt to ensure a constant supply of available copper, while eliminating excess copper whenever this occurs. Unfortunately there is also a downside to the production of copper in many Third World countries where you find a widespread of fraud, negligence and abuse. Global Witness has documented that government officials in many of the world's most impoverished countries turn a blind eye on harsh labor conditions in the artisanal mines, the complete absence of safety precautions and the failure of both the government and companies to take responsibility for the health and safety of tens of thousands of artisanal miners. In many developing countries, such as the Democratic Republic of Congo, Zambia, Republic of the Congo and some other Third and Second World countries minors you will usually find that governments of those countries do not place any value to the safety precautions of their safety precautions,this leads to huge risks of accidents and deaths in the mines and very often nothing gets investigated. Yes, the big influx of foreign firms or multinationals pouring into those countries presents opportunities for the political elite to enrich themselves. leaving their citizens in misery, but it is the mentality that needs to change, it is the paradigm of those societies that need to change; progress comes with a price. In much of the very impoverished countries there is a growing amount of resentment because the vast profits resulting from copper and any other metal flow out of their countries without them seeing any change in their financial situation. That is why natural resources can be a blessing and a curse to a developing country. Governments in those countries do not believe that universal rights are values that their societies can implement, unconsciously they are not interested in adopting any form of human rights.

What Creates Wealth?
 
05:32
Why are some countries rich and some countries poor? Is it access to natural resources? Is it tax policy? A motivated work force? These are important, but not determinative. The answer is deceptively simple – it’s what’s in our heads: knowledge. Thus, the surest way to promote economic growth is to cultivate an environment that encourages the spread of knowledge. Such an environment requires freedom, which is why the freest societies are the most prosperous. In five minutes, economist George Gilder explains why.

JOIN PragerFORCE! For Students: http://l.prageru.com/29SgPaX JOIN our Educators Network! http://l.prageru.com/2c8vsff Script: Let me begin with what sounds like a very simple question: What is the most essential ingredient in wealth creation and economic growth? Almost everyone would answer: Money. Or having a lot of natural resources. But the real answer is . . . knowledge. It's easy to prove. What is the difference between us and a cave man? The only difference is that we know a lot more. Biologically we're the same. The neurons in our brains are the same. The physical world is the same. But our lives are infinitely better. Why? Because of knowledge. You don't have to go back to the cave man to prove this point. You could go back fifty years. New knowledge , say the discovery of penicillin or new algorithms that leads to a better search engines -- always comes as a surprise. We call these surprises innovation because they are inherently unpredictable. New products burst on the scene seemingly out of nowhere. Suddenly, there's electric light or an automobile or an iPhone. Now, of course, these products didn't come from nowhere; they came from the synthesis of accumulated knowledge which led to these innovations, these surprises. By definition, then, innovation can't be planned, it involves dislocation. The makers of buggy whips did not have a great future when Henry Ford introduced the first Model T and it always points to the future. Innovation -- new knowledge -- leads to not only new products but new companies, and whole new industries. And innovation creates wealth; wealth that is ultimately distributed all through an economy. Here's how it works. More freedom, more knowledge, more innovation. And more innovation leads to dynamic economic growth. Less freedom, less knowledge, less innovation, -- less economic growth. So, if freedom promotes knowledge and innovation, which leads to economic growth, why don't all people and governments embrace it? To understand that we have to return to what I said earlier about innovation being a surprise, being unpredictable. This unpredictability makes many people uncomfortable. Their goal is to eliminate surprise. One finds this is in all utopian visions from communism to socialism to the belief that through complex insurance packages bankers could protect themselves from a catastrophic mortgage meltdown. In Europe with its failing welfare states and more and more in the U.S., we see this desire to eliminate surprise in the ever expanding role played by government, bigger bureaucracies, more rules, more regulations. Every new crisis, real or imagined, brings ever more laws. A corrupt energy conglomerate, Enron, implodes in 2001. A year later the Sarbanes-Oxley Act is passed, adding thousands of new pages of regulations to the federal registry. In 2011, the 2,300-page Dodd-Frank Act is written in response to the 2008 financial crises. It has since grown to more than 8,000 pages.

Examples of Renewable Resources
 
02:07
Visit us/get in touch at: http://wastersblog.com/1653/examples-of-renewable-resources/ We provide Examples of Renewable Resources: A renewable resource is one that replaces itself normally at a rate equal to or higher than human usage. The term normally refers to renewable energies, which are self-sustaining in time. There are 5 primary kinds of renewable resources, solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal and biomass. Many countries today are increasing their use of renewable energies to change fossil fuels, such as coal and petroleum, which take thousands and occasionally millions of years to change themselves, making them non-renewable resources. Examples of non-renewable resources are fossil fuels, like coal, oil, natural gas and soil, rocks, minerals. As soon as they have been gotten rid of from a mine or removed it takes a very long time indeed for them to re-form. We have actually counted on fossil fuels for our energy requires because, traditionally, these fuels have actually been reasonably inexpensive, and rewarding for designers. With increasing fuel costs, issues about ecological effect and growing political concerns about oil providers, renewable energy is acquiring in importance. Renewable resources are natural sources that can not be diminished. Examples consist of solar, wind, hydroelectric, biomass and geothermal. Fossil fuels like coal, oil and even clean-burning gas do not exist in unrestricted supply. One day they will be gone. In additional to unending availability, renewable resources create less environmental impact, specifically pollution. Generally speaking renewable resources can be categorized as natural renewable resources and non-organic renewable resources. Plant and animal species are the examples of natural renewable resources whereas gases like oxygen and water are the examples of non-organic renewable resources. Birds or animals getting extinct have now become a regular function. Although some species have actually disappeared from the earth's surface due to natural tragedies, most of them have actually become extinct due to excessive hunting and poaching. Examples of renewable resources are fresh water, fish, and soil. Non-renewable resources such as oil and minerals are irreplaceable, and they do not effectively regrow once they are consumed. Renewable energy describes power created by a renewable source. When the energy is generated, the resource is not exhausted or consumed. They are naturally replenished, and can either be managed so that they last permanently, or their supply is so enormous human beings can never ever meaningfully deplete them. Unlike fossil fuels, renewable energy sources do not release carbon dioxide as a byproduct into the atmosphere. As the quantity of nonrenewable fuel source resources in the world lowers, it is ending up being increasingly essential to discover and make use of alternative fuels. In the US, Alternative Energy is made use of and in general it implies the like renewable, implies any thing besides deriving energy through Fossil Fuel combustion. Alternative energy is likewise a natural deposit ends up being a renewable resource when it is replaced by natural processes at a rate which is quicker than its consumption rate by human beings. Solar radiation, tides, winds and hydroelectricity are the sources which are of lasting accessibility. Renewable resources may include mean products like wood, paper, and leather, if their harvesting is carried out in a sustainable way. So, to summarize, we will certainly just say that renewable resource is a natural resource that can replaced with biological or other natural processes and renewed after a long time. They are part of natural environment however they are threatened by commercial developments and development. Solar radiation, biomass, tides, geothermal, and winds are examples of renewable resources.

Top 10 Most Illiterate Countries In The World
 
01:51
10. Mauritania: Mauritania has very high illiteracy rate of about 60.1%. In the mid 80s, the literacy rate was estimated to be in between of 18% and 25%.There are no programs at all to teach the adults. As by law, to attend the school is mandatory for kids and it is absolutely free of cost. 9. Ethiopia: The World Bank disclosed the literacy rate in Ethiopia through its study about five years ago. According to this study, the literacy rate in Ethiopia was at 29.82%. This was based on the number of individuals who were capable of reading and writing even straightforward sentences that were used in daily conversation. Now days, the illiteracy rate of Ethiopia is fixed at 61.3%. 8. Benin: Benin is one of the poorest countries in Africa, irrespective of the fact that it is rich in natural resources that can increase the country’s income. It has a total population of 9.05 million and has an illiteracy rate of 62.5%. A huge number of the population is unable to read and write. The country is doing substantial work to increase the education. 7. Senegal: It is located in West Africa having an illiteracy rate of 62.7%. It receives international donation every year as it had undergone economy depreciation in past few years. The speedy population growth makes the job of educating everyone extremely difficult. Almost 50% of adult population is illiterate. 6. Guinea-Bissau: The illiteracy rate of this country is 63.2% which is a huge percentage of the total population, even though education is compulsory for children of 7 to 13 years of age. But because of the uncontrolled child labor, an appreciable portion of the population does not know even the basics of reading and writing. Internal conflicts have affected a lot of people. 5. The Gambia: It is a smaller West African country having an illiteracy rate of 63.5%. The free education is mandatory for everyone by the Gambia Government but the deficiency of resources and educational infrastructure is a huge hindrance in implementation of this law. This is an agricultural country having literacy rate of 77.1% two decades ago, at that time 8 out of 10 people go to school but high school fees and other expenses lead to decline in literacy rate. Now better rules are applied for education but still the illiteracy rate stays at 63.5%. 4. Sierra Leone: This country with a population of above six million, depends on its mining industry for the annually income. It has very low literacy rate like other West African countries, an illiteracy rate of 63.7%. The law makes the children to attend at least six years in the primary and three years in the secondary. However the lack of resources, the schools and the teachers made it impossible to act. Two third amount of population is illiterate. The Civil War caused a wide destruction of schools. 3. Afghanistan: Afghanistan is ranked at number three in this list having the illiteracy rate of 63.7%. Almost 75% of the population of Afghanistan lives in rural areas and having worse educational opportunities. 70% of the men and almost all the women are illiterate. 2. Burkina Faso: The second most illiterate country in the world is Burkina Faso having an illiteracy rate of 77% with inadequate school registration percentage of only 39.1%. Majority off illiterate people are adults comprising of more than 70% of adult population and therefore this country is suffering from tremendous deficiency of school teachers even at primary level. School years interruptions and large class sizes of more than 120 students in a class are common factors making the individuals uneducated. 1. Niger: The country on the top of this list with highest illiteracy rate is Niger. More than 80% of the adults of this country are uneducated and the illiteracy rate of this country is 84.3%. Such huge amount of population is unable to read, write and understand. IMAGE SOURCE: "GOOGLE SEARCH" SOURCE: http://listtoptens.com/top-10-most-illiterate-countries-in-the-world/

Top 10 Poorest Countries In Europe
 
02:57
Comments and discussion on CoolChannel4 website http://www.coolchannel4.com/video/top-10-poorest-countries-europe/ Top 10 poorest countries in Europe In this video we present you the 10 poorest countries in Europe. Some images in this video does not show the real situation, than are consequences of natural disasters. This list is created according to the data of GDP (using the average of the last three years as measured by purchasing power parity) and the percentage of the poor population. Romania – Romania is the richest of the 10 poorest European countries on this list. Although a member of the European Union, a large part of the population lives in extreme poverty, especially in rural areas. Bulgaria – Bulgaria is the poorest country in the European Union. The transition to the capitalist system and later, early entry into the European Union, have not helped to this country. Bulgaria is one of the oldest countries in the world was founded in the year 681. Belarus – Belarus in recent years, has economic growth but still the poverty rate is still high. The country is far from all the European standards not even demonstrate the will to do that. The future of this country is surely to be a part of Russia. Macedonia – The only satisfaction for the Macedonians from the former Yugoslavia could be that they are not the worst in the region. Things look even worse if we look at the problems with the Greek because of name and problems with the Albanians. Serbia – Serbian on the fifth mijestu is a reality but the numbers do not show improvement than decline. If we remember that 30 years ago, countries like Romania and Bulgaria, watched on Serbia, like far more developed then definitely something is not right. Albania – Sometimes convincingly the poorest and the most closed country in Europe, is now on a par with countries which had been far more developed. Travel to EU membership will be long and difficult but space for the optimistic, exist. Bosnia and Herzegovina – This state obviously does not work and they need major changes. States with poor industry, divided into two entities, the 10 cantons simply can not function. Having so many administration would not be able to withstand even the richer countries. Ukraine - Ukraine has large natural resources, but is technologically underdeveloped. Turning towards European integration has led to war, because of which not be able to recover for a long time and it is questionable and the preservation of the integrity of the state. Some images in this video does not show the real situation, than are consequences of natural disasters. Moldova – In the past, rich Soviet republic is now very poor. Moldova is the last European country where the communists returned to government. Even if mention the self-proclaimed state Transnistria inside Moldova, this country does not have a nice future. Kosovo – The youngest country in Europe. Formerly an autonomous province of Republic of Serbia in the Yugoslav era, and then was poorest territories. Internationally is not fully recognized by all the member states of the United Nations. which country is poor which country is most poor is kosovo poor country is moldova poor country is ukraine poor country is bosnia poor country is albania poor country is macedonia poor country is belarus poor country is bulgaria poor country is romania poor country most poor countries most poor european country which europen country is most poor corruption in europe

Top 10 The Best List of Richest Countries in The World 2014-2015
 
02:26
Some people might never even have heard of Qatar, but the data can not lie, and it is the richest country in the world. To me as well, it is very surprising. Huge powerful countries like the United States and Russia are not necessarily the richest. However, the definition and level of richness of a country here is defined by the economic indicators of the country such as its gross domestic products, not the amount of wealth a nation possesses. Below is the list of those top 10 richest countries in the world with its details you can enjoy. 1. Qatar Though Qatar is not extremely famous in the international stage, it is a very beautiful country with only about 1.8 millions population. However, statistically, it is the richest country in the world with the source of its wealth from the natural gas under their land. Located in the Western Asia, Qatar is a complete monarch country. It gained the independence from Britain in 1971. And due to its economic status, Qatar is considered as a high income economic country by the World Bank. 2. Luxembourg Bordered by Belgium, Germany and French, Luxembourg locates in the Western part of Europe. Economically, this country is among the ones with the highest GDP per capita. The main source of income of the wealth they have accumulated is from the sale of iron and steel. This is the country, considered to have the best products of steel and iron. With a little bit over half a million of population, many strategies have been taken to improve the living standard of its people. 3. Singapore Singapore is known to be a dragon in Asia. There is no question for that. Like the two above, it is a small but very rich country in terms of the economic indicators and its people’s living standard. Noticeably, Singapore located in a favorable geographical area for the water transportation that allows it to be huge port for international transportation routes. That is a big source of the income of their economic. Likewise, Singapore is also an attractive country. They have had millions of tourists each year, going to visit them. That is another source of their wealth. 4. Norway Norway is of course another amazing country in Europe. As of 2014, it has about 5 millions of population. Though small, Norway is among the oldest countries in Europe. It has existed for over 11oo years already. Norway is really a harmony country with a very well corporation between the government and the citizens. Norway is noticed to have a very highly healthy lifestyle because of its healthy food. This altogether with their outstanding production of the agricultural products like Coffee makes it an extremely rich country. 5. Hong Kong Like Singapore, Hong Kong is another country in Asia with a high economic status. Recently, Hong Kong has had a dramatic economic development through its transport and tourism sector. Hong Kong is of course a very busy and competitive business environment which makes its very prosperous. Another reason for that to address is their stable political system. It means a lot to its people who are growing the business. 6. Brunei Darussalam Brunei Darussalam is widely known for ages as a very rich country because of its abundant petroleum and natural gas resources. It has zero public debt, and it is small very few population. 7. United States Of America The United States is not only among the most powerful but also richest. Its size of its economic is among the biggest, and it could have a big influence on the world economy. 8. United Arab Emirates United Arab Emirates is a story of a zero to hero. The development of the country is almost unbelievable. 9. Switzerland Switzerland is best known world wide for its finest quality of watches. However, its economic in total is very strong. Unlike some of the countries above, Switzerland does not have abundant of natural resources to fuel their economic development. 10. Kuwait Kuwait is another leading country in oil production in Western Asia. The export of this commodity is a major source of income injected to its economy.

Economy of Denmark
 
31:11
Denmark has a diverse, mixed economy, but one that relies almost entirely on human resources, as there are few mineral resources available, except mature oil and gas wells in the North Sea. Cooperatives form a large part of some sectors, be it in housing, agriculture or retail. Foundations play a large role as owners of private sector companies. Denmark's nominal GDP was estimated to be $333,238 million, the 32nd largest in the world. It has the world's lowest level of income inequality, according to the World Bank Gini (%), and the world's highest minimum wage, according to the IMF. As of June 2010 the unemployment rate is at 7.4%, which is below the EU average of 9.6%. As of 28 February 2014 Denmark is among the countries with the highest credit rating. Denmark's main exports are: industrial production/manufactured goods 73.3% (of which machinery and instruments were 21.4%, and fuels, chemicals, etc. 26%); agricultural products and others for consumption 18.7% (in 2009 meat and meat products were 5.5% of total export; fish and fish products 2.9%). Denmark is a net exporter of food and energy and has since the 1990s had a balance of payments surplus. The accumulated value of service and merchandise exports in 2013 amounted to 54% of GDP, and imports in 2013 amounted to 49% of GDP. Notable among the service exports are container shipping. There is no net foreign debt as other countries owe more money to Denmark than Denmark owes to them, but because of large deficits due to increased unemployment levels the central government has increased its debt level since the end of September 2008, when it stood at 21 percent (gross debt) of GDP, according to the central bank - in accordance with the Eurostat EMU- gross debt numbers, which only take liabilities into account. (See below (Budgets)). Taking assets into account as well net debt of the central government was 11 percent. The public sector as a whole had net assets of 108 billion kroner in 2008. Within the European Union, Denmark advocates a liberal trade policy. Its standard of living is average among the Western European countries - and for many years the most equally distributed as shown by the Gini coefficient - in the world, and the Danes devote 0.8% of gross national income (GNI) to foreign aid. It is a society based on consensus (dialogue and compromise) with the Danish Confederation of Trade Unions and the Confederation of Danish Employers in 1899 in Septemberforliget (The September Settlement) recognising each other's right to organise, thus, negotiate. The employer's right to hire and fire their employees whenever they find it necessary is recognised. There is no official minimum wage (Danish: minimumsløn) set by the government; the minimum of wages (Danish: mindsteløn) is determined by negotiations between the organisations of employers and employees. Denmark produces oil, natural gas, wind- and bio-energy. Its principal exports are machinery, instruments and food products. The US is Denmark's largest non-European trading partner, accounting for around 5% of total Danish merchandise trade. Aircraft, computers, machinery, and instruments are among the major US exports to Denmark. Among major Danish exports to the U.S. are industrial machinery, chemical products, furniture, pharmaceuticals, Lego and canned ham and pork. This video is targeted to blind users.

10 Myths About Africa
 
02:42
Check out these 10 myths about Africa. Long known as the 'Dark Continent', Africa is at once mysterious and dangerous, yet beauty is at every turn. Here are 10 myths about Africa that should be known. Number 10. Myth: Africa is made up of either desert or rain forest. Africa is actually home to many diverse ecosystems including mountains and river systems. Savannas, or grasslands, cover almost half of Africa, more than 5 million square miles. Number 9. Myth: Africa is dangerous, don't go there. Although multiple countries are listed on the U.S.'s travel warning list, with approximately 54 countries, you'll find more safe and friendly places than not. For example, South Africa's current murder rate is lower than that of at least ten other countries, including Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala. Number 8. Myth: Africa will always be poor. Bill Gates would disagree. According to him, over the past half-decade, 7 out of the world's 10 fastest-growing economies are in Africa. Number 7. Myth: It's always hot in Africa. You'd be surprised to know that it does snow in Africa. People in Johannesburg, South Africa experienced snow in 2012 and before that in 2007, although never to the extent American Midwesterners are accustomed to. Number 6. Myth: All Africans speak the same language. In reality, there are over 2000 languages spoken on the continent. In addition to native tongues, English, French, Portuguese, and Arabic are used in many areas. Number 5. Myth: Women are oppressed. Many are fighting back and in some areas, like Rwanda, latest figures show women make up approximately 63% of parliament. Number 4. Myth: Africa is a country. Africa is the second-largest and second most populous continent on earth and is home to 54 recognized sovereign states and countries, 9 territories and 2 de facto independent states. Number 3. Myth: Africa is technologically backwards. Data suggests many regions are quite progressive. Africa now has more than 650 million mobile phone subscribers. That's more than either the United States or the European Union. Number 2. Myth: Africa needs "our" help. In cases of natural disaster and drought, sure, but when it comes to governance, many African leaders are saying no thanks. Recently, Malawi's president took a pass on 22 million pounds in British development aid because it came with too many governance strings attached. Number 1. Myth: All Africans are black. There are actually thousands of ethnic groups in Africa. Nearly 10 percent of the continent's population is white, and close to 3 percent is Asian. What do you think is the biggest myth about Africa?

The Great Game: Countries at War Over Oil Reserves
 
01:59
Zero Line with Dr. Kent Moors The Great Game: Countries at War Over Oil Supplies http://zerolinekentmoors.com/media/the-great-game-countries-at-war-over-oil-reserves/ The threat of nuclear war between India and Pakistan is just one piece of a larger geopolitical conflict that is quickly escalating -Countries at War over Oil Reserves called "The Great Game" by Dr. Kent Moors. Larger, richer countries are at war over oil reserves. Pakistan & India are just a small piece of the list of countries at war over oil reserves. As this Great Game plays out, the United States will enter a period that could be tremendously volatile for the U.S. economy, for world economies, and for all currencies. The Cost of Countries at War Over Oil Reserves Americans who fail to recognize the significance of the Great Game and who are caught off guard by the resultant stock market volatility stand to lose at least $1.41 trillion every year, not to mention having billions wiped from their bank accounts due to spikes in energy prices and sudden drops in the value of the dollar. In other words, countries aren't just going to war over oil reserves, they're going to war over money. However, those who understand how all the pieces are moving in this Great Game have a chance to profit from the trillions of dollars that will be there for the taking...

The New Cold War: Who Owns Arctic Oil?
 
02:50
Zero Line with Dr. Kent Moors The New Cold War: Russia vs U.S.A. - Who Owns Arctic Oil? http://zerolinekentmoors.com/media/new-cold-war-who-owns-arctic-oil/ The Arctic represents only 6% of the Earth's surface, yet it contains 20% of the world's undiscovered oil and natural gas -- this amounts to approximately 412 billion barrels of energy worth some $10.5 trillion. Needless to say, countries all over the northern hemisphere are fighting over who owns the Arctic oil. Who Owns the Arctic Oil However, no fewer than seven countries believe they have a legitimate stake to the Arctic and its resources, such as oil, and this will eventually pit the United States against Russia in a battle to win control of Arctic oil. Moreover, rising temperatures and melting Arctic ice are altering the political reality in the far north. In the span of a decade, the Arctic has gone from being considered a 'global common' to a hotly contested economic goldmine. So, Who Owns the Arctic Oil? In a special intelligence briefing that accompanies Dr. Kent Moors' "Great Game Blueprint" (available free to viewers), Moors discusses how this dispute over Arctic oil will evolve and how this situation is ultimately connected to the Great Game, the global resource war worth $20 trillion a year. He also reveals the two companies perfectly positioned to win this new cold war between the U.S. and Russia -- and reward investors who act now... Players of the Great Game: Countries who want to own the Arctic Oil: countries that want to own the Arctic Oil Russia: Russian National Security Council revealed that Moscow expects the Arctic to become its' primary resource base by 2020. The United States: American interests in the region include limiting Russian economic and military expansion into the area Canada: Canadian geography allows for a potentially large claim on the Arctic shelf Denmark: Denmark is advancing claims to certain islands in the Arctic Archipelago west of Greenland that are also claimed by Canada Norway: The Norwegian claim is dominated by a dispute with Russia over how to demarcate their mutual border in the Barents Sea, home to an estimated 11 billion barrels of arctic oil China: China has extended its Arctic lobbying to include Canada, another Arctic state

Social Progress Index 2014 Results
 
04:34
Update August 17, 2014: A customized version of this index, built especially for the Brazilian Amazon, launched August 23, 2014. It can be hard to get people to notice a problem. Or care about it. It can be really hard to work together to find solutions. And even harder to implement those solutions in a way that makes a difference. The Social Progress Framework provides a robust, holistic and innovative measurement tool that is being used in different ways in different places to improve human wellbeing. On April 3, 2014, the Social Progress Imperative launched its Social Progress Index 2014. We define 'social progress' as the capacity of a society to meet the basic human needs of its citizens, establish the building blocks that allow citizens and communities to enhance and sustain the quality of their lives, and create the conditions for all individuals to reach their full potential. The 2014 Index covered 132 countries, measuring what really matters to real people. Explore the data at http://www.socialprogressimperative.org/data/spi or read the full report at http://www.socialprogressimperative.org/publications. [This video and other materials related to the Social Progress Index 2014 use the World Bank definition: "GDP per capita based on purchasing power parity (PPP). PPP GDP is gross domestic product converted to international dollars using purchasing power parity rates. An international dollar has the same purchasing power over GDP as the U.S. dollar has in the United States. GDP at purchaser's prices is the sum of gross value added by all resident producers in the economy plus any product taxes and minus any subsidies not included in the value of the products. It is calculated without making deductions for depreciation of fabricated assets or for depletion and degradation of natural resources. Data are in constant 2005 international dollars." http://data.worldbank.org/indicator/NY.GDP.PCAP.PP.KD]
Magnesium and Calcification p1
 
11:37
As read from (with my own comments sprinkled throughout): http://drsircus.com/medicine/magnesium/magnesium-and-calcification Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gd6WSMqrAzQ&feature=youtu.be "Countries with the highest calcium to magnesium ratios (high calcium and low magnesium levels) in soil and water have the highest incidence of cardiovascular disease. At the top of the list is Australia. In contrast, Japan with its low cardiac death rate cites a daily magnesium intake as high as 560 milligrams." "Those who die from heart attacks have very low magnesium but high calcium levels in their heart muscles. Patients with coronary heart disease who have been treated with large amounts of magnesium survived better than those with other drug treatments. Magnesium dilates the arteries of the heart and lowers cholesterol and fat levels." "A healthy cell has high magnesium and low calcium levels. The higher the calcium level and the lower the magnesium level in the extra-cellular fluid, the harder is it for cells to pump the calcium out. The result is that the mitochondria gradually calcify and energy production decreases with low magnesium levels. Our biochemical age could theoretically be determined by the ratio of magnesium to calcium within our cells." "Without sufficient magnesium, calcium can collect in the soft tissues and cause arthritis. In arthritics calcium is poorly absorbed into their blood and bones. Some researchers estimate that the American ratio of calcium to magnesium is actually approaching 6:1, while the recommendation for healthy living is actually 2:1. But even 2 parts of calcium to 1 part of magnesium is probably too high, since current research on the Paleolithic or caveman diets show that the ratio of their diet was 1:1. [1]" "Medical authorities claim that the widespread incidence of osteoporosis and tooth decay in western countries can be prevented with a high calcium intake. However, Asian and African populations with a low intake (about 300 mg) of calcium daily have very little osteoporosis. Bantu women with an intake of 200 to 300 mg of calcium daily have the lowest incidence of osteoporosis in the world. [2] In western countries with a high intake of dairy products, the average calcium intake is about 1,000 mg. With a low magnesium intake, calcium moves out of the bones to increase tissue levels, while a high magnesium intake causes calcium to move from the tissues into the bones. Thus high magnesium levels leads to bone mineralization." "Some people, like a spokesperson for the UK-based charity, the National Osteoporosis Society, continue to think "magnesium deficiency is, in fact, very rare in humans." So they cannot get it through their heads that magnesium deficiency, not calcium deficiency, plays a key role in osteoporosis. It is no surprise when we find more studies suggesting that high Ca intake had no preventive effect on the alteration of bone metabolism in magnesium-deficient rats, [9] and that not only severe but also moderate dietary restriction of magnesium results in qualitative changes in bones in rats. [10]" Finally, I guarantee that anyone who peruses the resources I've amalgamated on my blog will come away with unprecedented awareness-empowerment, broad-spectrum in subject matter.

You look at Warren Buffett. He comes off as this kind of avuncular, you know, stock loving, old school investor and that’s the way he’s perceived, you know, that says you Omaha, but look at what he’s actually done. In the last several years, Warren Buffett went out and bought the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Railroad. He didn’t just buy some stock, he bought the whole thing, took it private. What is a railroad? A railroad is nothing but hard assets. It’s right of way, mining rights adjacent to the right of way, rail, rolling stock, yards, switches, signals, buildings, it’s all hard assets. How does the railroad make money? It makes money by moving hard assets so coal, wheat, corn, steel, other kinds of freight, etc. So, railroad is the ultimate, its hard assets moving hard assets. It’s the ultimate hard asset play. Warren Buffett’s next deal was to go out and buy massive natural resources in oil and natural gas. And by the way, he can move his oil on his railroad. He doesn’t need the Keystone Pipeline. You line up a hundred tanker cars, that’s a pipeline on wheels. So, Warren Buffett comes with his own railroad. That means he has his own pipeline. So, Warren Buffett’s a guy who’s dumping paper money, getting into hard assets in the form of transportation and energy in particular. And the dollar could go to zero and it has no effect on him. He still owns a railroad. This is what the German industrialists did at the time of the Weimar Republic Hyperinflation in 1922. Who lost in the Weimar hyperinflation? Well, the middle class lost so teachers, firemen, civil servants, you know, the middle class, shopkeepers, anyone who had money in the bank. Again, savings, insurance annuities, they got wiped out. But if you own a factory, it’s still a factory. The currency can go to zero; you still have an income-producing asset so Warren Buffett is one model that says get out of paper money into hard assets, transportation, real estate, oil and natural gas.

Magnesium and Calcification p2
 
14:21
As read from (with my own comments sprinkled throughout): http://drsircus.com/medicine/magnesium/magnesium-and-calcification "Countries with the highest calcium to magnesium ratios (high calcium and low magnesium levels) in soil and water have the highest incidence of cardiovascular disease. At the top of the list is Australia. In contrast, Japan with its low cardiac death rate cites a daily magnesium intake as high as 560 milligrams." "Those who die from heart attacks have very low magnesium but high calcium levels in their heart muscles. Patients with coronary heart disease who have been treated with large amounts of magnesium survived better than those with other drug treatments. Magnesium dilates the arteries of the heart and lowers cholesterol and fat levels." "A healthy cell has high magnesium and low calcium levels. The higher the calcium level and the lower the magnesium level in the extra-cellular fluid, the harder is it for cells to pump the calcium out. The result is that the mitochondria gradually calcify and energy production decreases with low magnesium levels. Our biochemical age could theoretically be determined by the ratio of magnesium to calcium within our cells." "Without sufficient magnesium, calcium can collect in the soft tissues and cause arthritis. In arthritics calcium is poorly absorbed into their blood and bones. Some researchers estimate that the American ratio of calcium to magnesium is actually approaching 6:1, while the recommendation for healthy living is actually 2:1. But even 2 parts of calcium to 1 part of magnesium is probably too high, since current research on the Paleolithic or caveman diets show that the ratio of their diet was 1:1. [1]" "Medical authorities claim that the widespread incidence of osteoporosis and tooth decay in western countries can be prevented with a high calcium intake. However, Asian and African populations with a low intake (about 300 mg) of calcium daily have very little osteoporosis. Bantu women with an intake of 200 to 300 mg of calcium daily have the lowest incidence of osteoporosis in the world. [2] In western countries with a high intake of dairy products, the average calcium intake is about 1,000 mg. With a low magnesium intake, calcium moves out of the bones to increase tissue levels, while a high magnesium intake causes calcium to move from the tissues into the bones. Thus high magnesium levels leads to bone mineralization." "Some people, like a spokesperson for the UK-based charity, the National Osteoporosis Society, continue to think "magnesium deficiency is, in fact, very rare in humans." So they cannot get it through their heads that magnesium deficiency, not calcium deficiency, plays a key role in osteoporosis. It is no surprise when we find more studies suggesting that high Ca intake had no preventive effect on the alteration of bone metabolism in magnesium-deficient rats, [9] and that not only severe but also moderate dietary restriction of magnesium results in qualitative changes in bones in rats. [10]" Finally, I guarantee that anyone who peruses the resources I've amalgamated on my blog will come away with unprecedented awareness-empowerment, broad-spectrum in subject matter. Plenty of entertainment materials included! http://poohgkicks.wordpress.com/ http://poohgkicks.wordpress.com/2013/06/22/if-even-a-third-of-us-knew/

Africa rising but we have been here before
 
15:59
Africa's economic growth in the last decade has been receiving very positive reviews. The Economist magazine maintain that in the last decade sub-Saharan Africa's real GDP grew at a rate of 5.7% up from 2.4% in the previous two decades. This growth rate was more than Latin America and at par with Asia despite the magnificent performance of the Chinese and Indian economies pulling Asia along. While this is very good news, we should not forget that we have been here before. In the first decade after independence in the late 1950s and early 1960s, Africa had the highest economic growth rate compared to other developing regions in the world. The economic surplus that accrued from the post-independence era economic growth, held in trust for the people, by the various agricultural marketing boards, was squandered by the post-independent elites. When the prices of Africa's agricultural exports fell drastically in the world markets, there was no safety net to fall back on, resulting in widespread poverty. Here we go again, with African economies experiencing a boom based on the exploitation of natural resources. Would Africa's governing elites today repeat the errors of the past? While countries such as Norway are creating huge sovereign wealth funds with their economic surplus today, how are African countries preparing for the inevitable economic bust in the near future?

Background Sound of this video I collect from YouTube Audio Library which is free to use. Thank you. Source File:http://top10for.com/top-10-poorest-countries-2014/ 10. Madagascar: Poorest Countries The FINANCIAL crisis and economical threats of Madagascar have become severe since a decade or so. Here the people are losing their lives everyday due to malnutrition. The estimated per capita GDP of this country is about $950. 9. Togo: Poorest Countries Togo is a small country located in the Western Africa. The government of Togo always seeks external help for fulfilling the educational, health and food requirements of the people. Here the per capita GDP value is about $900. 8. Malawi: Poorest Countries According to the stats of 2014, Malawi is one of the countries where health facilities are almost none. The people here suffer from various health complications and infectious diseases, and many of them loss their lives as no immediate medical facilities are made available to them. Same is the situation with its finance, the people suffer from poor economic crisis. The GDP per capita value of Malawi is about $850. 7. Central Africa Republic: Poorest Countries CentralAfricaRepublic’s most of population is into agriculture and farming sectors. But unfortunately many of the people fail to earn sufficient to fulfill their family needs. This country’s GDP per capita is approximately $700. 6. Niger: Poorest Countries It is absolutely true that for a few years, Niger’s government has taken serious measures to improve the lifestyle and standards of living of its people, but still the situation seems to be unsatisfactory. So this country’s per capita GDP value is about $600 which is still below than average. 5. Zimbabwe: Poorest Countries More than 80 % population of Zimbabwe is in small villages. These people suffer from severe health and financial problems. Although Zimbabwe has made fine records in different games but from economical point of view, this nation is behind the race with a GDP per capita value of $550. 4. Burundi: Poorest Countries Burundi is yet another one of the poorest countries in the world. It annually receives millions of dollars from USA, UK and other developed nations in terms of financial help. Various NGOs are also active in this state to help the people improve their lifestyle. The GDP per capita of Burundi is about $500 as per the current stats. 3. Eritrea: Poorest Countries Eritrea has an estimated GDP per capita of almost $400, and the situation of the people here seems to be drastically serious. Usually the population of Eritrea is into agriculture but this country has been blessed with various natural resources as well, still the people didn’t manage to improve their standards of living. 2. Congo: Poorest Countries Congo is a truly backward country situated in the Central Africa. Since the day Congo got independence, the people of this country never saw regular flow of incoming amounts. It is very unfortunate to say that Congo’s GDP per capita is too much low (about $350) and the people seem to be more relying upon external helps and don’t do anything themselves to improve their lives. 1. Liberia: Poorest Countries Ads by Plus-HD-9.1cAd Options Liberia’s name is at the top of the list because of its per capita of only $300. Every year, thousands of people here die of infections and malnutrition. Many of the children are born abnormally and their weight is less than a normal child’s weight. The reasons are lack of food and FINANCIAL resources. 1-Top 10 Most Common Signs of Pregnancy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ee8q_hO52kI 2-Top 10 Highest Paid Indian TV Actresses in 2014 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHpIpXljoUo 3-TV Serial Celebrity Caught Without Makeup, They Look Like Us Only https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8KEorV39DM 4-Top 10 Most Famous Porn Star Become A Film Star https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Seh59zDPHk 5-Top 10 Tallest Women in the World https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1wNlm1-0QEk Our Social Link:https: https://goo.gl/F28hsr

Is Singapore overcrowded : Could immigration be handled better? (4/6)
 
05:17
With the governments plans to increase Singapore's population to 6.9 million by 2030 many people are worried that the city-state will become seriously overcrowded. Even current figures of 5.3 million makes Singapore more densely populated than Hong Kong. With more and more people arriving the pressure on the infrastructure is beginning to take its toll. Skyrocketing housing prices, high cost of living, overcrowded shopping malls, long wait times for taxes and buses and jammed packed MRT trains. The list it seems is endless and as the list grows the more fed up it seems Singaporeans are becoming. But if Singapore is going to develop as a truly global city does it really have a choice? Should we see people as a major resource as we don't have any natural resources? It's a contentious subject that gets people quite hot under the collar. TalkAbout invited a good cross section of the community to air their views on the subject. The panel included a businessmen, an opposition leader, a former Tourism Board executive and a young actor and entertainer. Watch this heated debate unfold. Will the rapid arrival of immigrants change the fabric of society? Is immigration forcing Singaporeans to emigrate or are they just relocating for better work opportunities? Does the continued arrival of more foreigners make Singaporeans feel like foreigners in their own country? Or are Singaporeans just perpetual grumblers? Watch the panelists spar over the number game. Why indeed 6.9 million?. Why not round it off to 7 million? Or is 6.9 million the maximum number of people Singapore can actually accommodate? After all, Singapore is a land-scarce country with limited resources. So tune in and judge for yourself if Singapore will be able to cope with the new population targets that have been set by the government. It's a debate not to be missed.

Why nations fail | James Robinson | TEDxAcademy
 
18:34
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Why do some states enjoy wealth, security, health and nutrition while others face poverty, unemployment, lack of health care and safety? James Robinson is a political scientist and economist. Professor Robinson teaches Economics, History and Government at Harvard University. His main research interests lie in the study of the economies of developing countries. He travels a lot in Latin America and Africa and spends his summers teaching at the University of Bogota. In 2012, he was elected Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. In 2007, James Robinson and Daron Acemoglu coauthored the book “Economic Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy”. The book was considered the best book released on U.S. policy and international relations. Their latest book, "Why Nations Fail", was included in the ten best releases of the 2012 list in Washington Post. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

Top 10 Largest Cities or Towns of Western Sahara
 
01:01
Thanks for watching.... 1) El Aaiun 2) Ad-Dakhla 3) Smara 4) Cape Bojador 5) El Marsa 6) Hawza 7) Mahbes 8) Guelta Zemmur 9) Bou Craa 10) Tifariti The Western Sahara, is a disputed territory in the Maghreb region of North Africa, bordered by Morocco to the north, Algeria to the extreme northeast, Mauritania to the east and south, and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Its surface area amounts to 266,000 square kilometres (103,000 sq mi). It is one of the most sparsely populated territories in the world, mainly consisting of desert flatlands. The population is estimated at just over 500,000, of whom nearly 40% live in El Aaiún (also spelled Laâyoune), the largest city in Western Sahara. Occupied by Spain since the late 19th century, the Western Sahara has been on the United Nations list of non-self-governing territories since 1963 after a Moroccan demand. It is the most populous territory on that list, and by far the largest in area. In 1965, the UN General Assembly adopted its first resolution on Western Sahara, asking Spain to decolonise the territory. One year later, a new resolution was passed by the General Assembly requesting that a referendum be held by Spain on self-determination. In 1975, Spain relinquished the administrative control of the territory to a joint administration by Morocco (which had formally claimed the territory since 1957) and Mauritania. A war erupted between those countries and the Sahrawi national liberation movement, the Polisario Front, which proclaimed the Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) with a government-in-exile in Tindouf, Algeria. Mauritania withdrew in 1979, and Morocco eventually secured effective control of most of the territory, including all the major cities and natural resources. Since a United Nations-sponsored ceasefire agreement in 1991, two thirds of the territory (including most of the Atlantic coast line) has been controlled by Morocco and the remainder by the SADR, strongly backed by Algeria. Internationally, countries such as the United States and Russia have taken a generally ambiguous and neutral position on each side's claims, and have pressed both parties to agree on a peaceful resolution. Both Morocco and Polisario have sought to boost their claims by accumulating formal recognition, essentially from African, Asian, and Latin American states in the developing world. The Polisario Front has won formal recognition for SADR from 82 states, and was extended membership in the African Union. Morocco has won recognition or support for its position from several African governments and from most of the Arab League. In both instances, recognitions have, over the past two decades, been extended and withdrawn according to changing international trends. As of 2006, no other member state of the United Nations has recognized Moroccan sovereignty over Western Sahara. The earliest known inhabitants of the Western Sahara were the Berber people of the Gaetulian tribes. Depending on the century, Roman-era sources describe the area as inhabited by Gaetulian Autololes or the Gaetulian Daradae tribes. Berber heritage is still evident from regional and place-name toponymy, as well as from tribal names. Other early inhabitants of the Western Sahara may be the Bafour and later the Serer and some Arabian tribes. The Bafour were later replaced or absorbed by Berber-speaking populations which eventually merged in turn with the migrating Beni Hassan Arabian tribe. The arrival of Islam in the 8th century played a major role in the development of the Maghreb region. Trade developed further, and the territory may have been one of the routes for caravans, especially between Marrakesh and Tombouctou in Mali. In the 11th century, the Maqil Arabian tribes (fewer than 200 individuals) settled in Morocco (mainly in the Draa valley, between the Melwiya river, Tafilalet and Taourirt). Towards the end of the Almohads' rule, the Beni Hassan tribe (a sub-tribe of the Maqil) were called by the local ruler of the Sous to quell a rebellion, they settled in the Sous Ksours and controlled such cities as Taroudant. During the Merinid rule, the Beni Hassan rebelled but were defeated by the Sultan and escaped beyond the Saguia el-Hamra dry river. The Beni Hassan then were at constant war with the Lamtuna nomadic Berbers of the Sahara. Over roughly five centuries, through a complex process of acculturation and mixing seen elsewhere in the Maghreb and North Africa, some of the indigenous Berber tribes mixed with the Maqil Arabian tribes and formed a culture unique to Morocco and Mauritania.
