A new Ning! Haiti Re-Wired

Quake-ravaged Haiti faces a long-term emergency, one that will not end in a few weeks when the media frenzy dies down. And it's clear the crisis will require more radical solutions than short-term relief groups can provide.



Will foreign aid to Haiti fail this time? Or will the tragedy bring with it a chance to reboot one of the world's poorest countries -- and rethink the the traditional ways of delivering aid and… Continue

Haiti Is Again a Canvas for Approaches to Aid




By NEIL MacFARQUHAR

Watching TV is Bad for Your Health But Sitting Still is the Culprit

Did you see the stories in the newspapers that TV watching is bad for your health? It is but probably not for the reasons you might think. Certainly being a couch potato is unhealthy and if we sit there for long periods, eating chips, drinking beer and smoking cigarettes, our health will obviously take a turn for the worse. But a new study from Australian researchers observed 8800 adults for over six years and recorded the deaths from heart disease, cancer and all causes. The results were… Continue

After three years of development, the military was done developing a new crisis-response communication tool.
