Exploring Solutions to the Development Problem with Efosa Ojomo

Development is one of the major challenges of our time. Unfortunately, it's often approached in a way that does more harm than good. Efosa Ojomo has a better solution, and he's here today to share it. Efosa is the leader of the Global Prosperity Research Group at the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation, the co-author of The Prosperity Paradox, and the author of the upcoming book, The Prosperity Process. In this episode, Efosa explains how his first foray in the development space (building wells in Nigeria) catalyzed a journey of discovery which led him to realize that, in order to truly change the world, we need to implement pull strategies instead of push strategies and focus on market creating innovations. He shares some examples of what these innovations look like and we discuss what it takes to be a market creating innovator, how regulation impacts innovation, a new way to think about corruption, and more! Make sure to tune in today.   Key Points From This Episode:   •  The lesson Efosa learned through his first foray in the development world. •  Definitions of the three types of innovation that Efosa and his co-authors explain in depth in their book, The Prosperity Paradox. •  Efosa shares the story of Mo Ibrhaim to highlight the power of market creating innovations. •  Push versus pull development strategies and the problem with the former. •  The story of Indomie Noodles as an example of the huge amount of change that can be made through the implementation of a pull strategy. •  How a proliferation of government agencies negatively impacts a country's entrepreneurial ecosystem. •  The type of person who is best suited to be a leader in the market creating innovation space. •  Aid for developing countries: how the approach needs to change. •  Efosa explains why good laws are not enough to create thriving communities. •  Key factors that resulted in the rise and fall of Venice. •  How Efosa believes we should be tackling the issue of corruption. •  A tribute to Clayton Christenson. •  The Prosperity Process; Efosa's future book.     Links Mentioned in Today's Episode:   http://www.apple.com (Efosa Ojomo) https://twitter.com/EfosaOjomo (Efosa Ojomo on Twitter) https://www.christenseninstitute.org/global-prosperity/ (Global Prosperity Research Group at the Clayton Christensen Institute for Disruptive Innovation) https://www.amazon.com/Prosperity-Paradox-Innovation-Nations-Poverty/dp/0062851829 (The Prosperity Paradox) https://www.britannica.com/biography/Mo-Ibrahim (Mo Ibrahim) https://www.hurstpublishers.com/book/gambling-on-development/ (Gambling on Development) https://www.linkedin.com/in/yuen-yuen-ang-35a93920/ (Yuen Yuen Ang) https://www.amazon.com/Why-Nations-Fail-Origins-Prosperity/dp/0307719227 (Why Nations Fail) https://www.amazon.com/Innovators-Dilemma-Revolutionary-Change-Business/dp/0062060244 (The Innovator's Dilemma) https://www.amazon.com/Innovators-Solution-Creating-Sustaining-Successful/dp/1422196577 (The Innovator's Solution) https://www.chartercitiesinstitute.org/ (Charter Cities Institute) https://www.facebook.com/Charter-Cities-Institute-424204888015721/ (Charter Cities Institute on Facebook) https://twitter.com/CCIdotCity (Charter Cities Institute on Twitter)

Today, Debbie speaks with Paula Span, a veteran journalist and the author since 2009 of the New York Times' column, The New Old Age. The column explores, as the Times' puts it, “the unprecedented challenges posed by a rapidly aging population.” That's a pretty broad topic so Paula covers everything from the cost of growing older, to social security for same sex couples, to stubborn aging parents, to the evolving status of medical aid in dying (MAID), formerly known as death with dignity. In 2017, after becoming a grandmother, she added a second Times column, Generation Grandparent. She's adapted those essays for her audiobook “The Bubbe Diaries,” released by Audible in 2021.She's also a revered professor of journalism, having taught at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism for over two decades. She is the author of “When the Time Comes: Families with Aging Parents Share Their Struggles and Solutions,” published by Hachette.She and Debbie talk about how she explores the topic of pernicious ageism for the Times - not with personal opinion - but with research and data and expert interviews. Each of her columns get a huge response with readers leaving as many as 500 comments.  They talk about her approach to writing as a freelance journalist (always say YES, she tells Debbie, no matter what the assignment is). And they talk about her artful approach to grandparenting. She lives in Montclair, N.J., and travels to Brooklyn once a week to care for her granddaughter.This is an intriguing behind-the-scenes peak at writing for the Times from a veteran journalist. Mentioned in this episode or useful:Paula Span - WebsiteThe New Old Age, Paula's column for The New York TimesGeneration Grandparent, Paula's occasional column for The New York TimesThe Bubbe Diaries by Paula Span (Audible, 2021)When the Time Comes: Families with Aging Parents Share Their Struggles and Solutions by Paula Span (Hachette, 2009)Paula Span at Columbia Journalism SchoolTallying the Cost of Growing Older by Paula Span (The New York Times, October 3, 2021)For Terminal Patients, the Barrier to Aid in Dying Could be a State Line (The New York Times, Nov. 13, 2021)Sally TannenBreaking the Age Code: How Your Beliefs About Aging Determine How Long and Well You Live by Becca Levy PhD (William Morrow, 2022)Nanaville: Adventures in Grandparenting by Anna Quindlen (Random House Trade Paperbacks; Reprint edition 2020)Jane E.

Osnat Lubrani knows first-hand the horrors of war. As UN Resident Coordinator and Humanitarian Coordinator in Ukraine, she has witnessed the dramatic changes since the Russian invasion and rapidly mounting needs as the war tears lives apart across the country. “What is keeping me awake at night is the horror of knowing that it hasn't ended yet and that there are more people alive today that are very likely to be dead tomorrow.” At least 15.7 million Ukrainians are now in urgent need of humanitarian aid, with the UN working to expand existing programs and establish new life-saving operations. Yet access to some of the most vulnerable is proving extremely problematic. In this episode, Osnat Lubrani reflects on the frustrating battle to reach them, what it feels like to receive distressing cries for help, and what gives her hope when all seems lost.

Following four failed rains and with the threat of a fifth, the Horn of Africa is now facing the worst drought for 40 years, with up to 20 million people at risk of going hungry. The current crisis is drawing parallels to the famine in 2011 that killed nearly 260,000 people in Somalia alone. Aid agencies and food security experts raised the alarm about the impact of failed rains long ago, so why are we here again? And why is this devastating crisis not getting the attention it urgently needs? In this episode, experts join us from Mogadishu discuss the situation on the ground.

It's been nine months since the Taliban regained full control of Afghanistan, and despite their assurances to the international community that this time around they would be more respectful of women and girls, they are once again repressing half of the population. New laws and regulations restricting the freedoms, rights and movement of all women and girls continue to be introduced, including most recently a ban on all women from showing their faces in public, including on TV. The Quicky speaks to a woman who fled Afghanistan with her family about how the country is being gradually destroyed by the Taliban, as we look into how restricted daily life has become for millions of people, and what if anything is being done to stop it. Maria Aziz operates an organisation in Western Australia called AFG Young Leaders that aims to empower Afghan-Australian youth, and recently launched a GoFundMe appeal seeking donations to help support new Afghan arrivals with mental health services, torture and trauma counselling and accommodation.

As many of our readers and listeners already know, the Scotts Bluff County Scanner has been broadcasting over the internet since 2009 and has gone through lots of changes over the years.Scanner enthusiasts, and law enforcement officials both know that eventually the publicly available scanner signal could, and likely will, go encrypted. This means that the general public would simply not be able to get the signal. Only official media outlets will have access to it and they are not allowed to re-transmit it during the live event. There are varying laws as to how much they can use from an archived event in their reporting after the fact.So, someday you will not be able to listen to the Scotts Bluff County Scanner.HOWEVER, that day is not here yet and has not been voted on at the County level.– per scotts bluff county commissionersThe expense to change to all encrypted is enormous, and Scotts Bluff County ALREADY has ENCRYPTED channels installed for both SWAT and WING. The police officers also use their cell phones on many occasions when they don't want something broadcast over the scanner. IF the County would decide to move forward on a proposal of this nature, we predict there would be a large uprising against this huge, seemingly unnecessary expenditure, especially if we already employ encryption and other secure communications techniques.That's GOOD NEWS for those who follow the scanner for various reasons. Many of us believe it should remain classified as public information and encryption should only happen when the officers deem it necessary. We trust their judgement on that call, but the public information should remain public, inasmuch as it does not AID a criminal in the COMMISSION of a CRIME.It should also go without saying too many times, “PLEASE STAY AWAY FROM ANY SCENE WHENEVER POSSIBLE” and “PLEASE YIELD TO ALL EMERGENCY PERSONNEL”.Although the “Scotts Bluff County Scanner” volunteer group is NOT associated with the county or any government agency, we have always had a good working relationship with the county. We have informed them of our full cooperation on the reporting of individuals that are found to be obstructing the scene of any crime, accident or otherwise.If anyone is cited for obstruction, or any other charge related to getting in the way of our dedicated officers, firemen and volunteers, they will earn for themselves a lifetime ban from our facebook page, twitter feed, instagram feed, website and all other @sbcoscanner properties.Now, we titled this article a new era because we have alot going on behind the scenes for you. In case you missed it, we do have a small but growing scanner gear merchandise store where you can purchase T-shirts, Coffee Mugs and Totes. We'll be adding Hats, Hoodies, Tumblers and other cool items in the near future.We are also working hard on a business plan to increase our team and improve our service to the community. For instance, not only do we have a full website for the scanner, but it includes a SPONSORS section that will soon be filling up. That means YOUR BUSINESS could advertise on this fastest growing news service in the valley – The Scotts Bluff County Scanner!If you would like to volunteer to contribute local news to us, please let us know by sending an email through our parent company to Brian Hale, Business Manager at brian@halemultimedia.com directly.Look for more improvements and changes and thank you for following, sharing and listening to the Scotts Bluff County Scanner!

China's presence in Africa is widely speculated upon (and wildly misunderstood). Joining us today to speak to the truth of the matter is Sinologist-Africanist Professor of International Development at Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies, Deborah Brautigam. Deborah is also the Director of the China Africa Research Initiative (CARI) and author of Will Africa Feed China? and, more famously, The Dragon's Gift: The Real Story of China in Africa. In this episode, she shares her nuanced perspective on the Chinese development model and aid program in Africa and how the rise of NGOs has shifted the nature of aid, in general. We discuss the role of aid as a geopolitical instrument and the differences in the ways China and the West approach the funding of infrastructure in Africa. We learn about Chinese loans versus commoditized loans, the lessons China has learned through its various endeavors, and the lessons Deborah suspects it is yet to learn. Tune in to hear more about the balance of ensuring sustainability and respecting sovereignty, what's causing the decline in Chinese infrastructure lending, and where China's focus has turned since the pandemic. Key Points From This Episode: •   Deborah Brautigam's interest in the Chinese development model and aid program in Africa. •   The argument of her first book, Will Africa Feed China? •   The problems Western aid projects have faced. •   How the rise of NGOs has shifted the nature of aid. •   The accountability structure of China in Africa. •   Aid as a geopolitical instrument. •   The two primary sources of finance for infrastructure in Africa: China and the bond markets. •   The Japanese Goa formula and its impact on Chinese aid practices today. •   How Chinese commodity-backed aid differs from that of Western entities. •   Zambia's privatization of their copper mines. •   Why commoditized loans have a bad reputation. •   The advantage Chinese loans have over commoditized loans. •   Competitive bidding and external supervision of Chinese infrastructure in Angola. •   China's reasons for supporting the developing world in the 60s and 70s: to support socialism and wrest diplomatic recognition away from Taipei and towards Beijing. •   The lessons China took from undertaking the Tanzam railway project in the 70s. •   Tazara Syndrome: the pride of funding projects nobody else wants to fund. •   The art of project appraisal and how to minimize risk in demand projections. •   China's Belt and Road Initiative (BRI). •   The balance between ensuring the sustainability of aid projects and respecting sovereignty. •   How political interests undermine the ability of state-owned enterprises to be sustainable. •   The specialization and division of labor between China and the West. •   The Western profit model of new urban agglomerations. •   The misguided New Yorker report on debt-trap diplomacy in Sri Lanka. •   Reasons for the recent decline in Chinese infrastructure spending. •   China's plans to focus on local infrastructure. •   Various views on China's motives amongst policymakers. •   Deborah's book recommendations pertaining to Chinese issues.   Links Mentioned in Today's Episode: https://deborahbrautigam.com/ (Deborah Brautigam) https://twitter.com/d_brautigam (Deborah Brautigam on Twitter) https://www.amazon.com/Dragons-Gift-Story-China-Africa/dp/0199606293 (The Dragon's Gift: The Real Story of China in Africa) https://www.amazon.com/Will-Africa-Feed-China/dp/B017DNILOS (Will Africa Feed China?)...

Depuis les apparitions supposées de la Vierge Marie à Bernadette Soubirous, jusqu'à nos jours, seulement 70 cas de guérison miraculeuse ont été reconnues. Ce nombre infime, qui tend à diminuer encore, s'explique en partie par le caractère très strict de la procédure suivie. Des critères très stricts Les deux premières étapes de la procédure aboutissant à l'éventuelle reconnaissance d'une guérison miraculeuse sont d'ordre scientifique. En effet, la personne concernée doit d'abord soumettre son cas au bureau médical de Lourdes, créé dès 1883 par l'Église catholique. Il est à noter que les médecins présents ne sont pas seulement catholiques. S'ils estiment le cas suffisamment sérieux, ils adressent le dossier au comité médical international de Lourdes, fondé en 1947. Pour que la guérison soit considérée comme inexpliquée, dans l'état actuel de la science, par les médecins, il faut d'abord que le diagnostic soit parfaitement clair. Par ailleurs, la guérison doit être immédiate, complète et définitive. Enfin, la personne guérie ne doit pas avoir besoin de convalescence et aucune rechute ne doit être constatée. Le caractère très exigeant de ces critères explique que, depuis 1858, seulement 70 guérisons miraculeuses ont été reconnues, ce qui représente à peine 1 % des dossiers déposés au bureau médical. Une dernière étape d'ordre religieux La dernière étape de la procédure ne relève pas de la médecine. Une fois que les instances médicales ont reconnu le caractère inexplicable de la guérison, c'est à l'évêque du diocèse où réside la personne guérie d'entrer en scène. Aidé d'une commission diocésaine, le prélat doit interpréter la guérison comme un "signe de Dieu". C'est donc à lui qu'il revient d'en déclarer le caractère miraculeux. Il peut être amené, pour ce faire, à enquêter sur les mœurs et les convictions religieuses de la personne concernée. Il ne faut donc pas s'étonner qu'avec une sélection aussi rigoureuse, le nombre de guérisons jugées miraculeuses soit aussi faible. Et il a encore tendance à se réduire. Ainsi, seulement 5 cas de guérison miraculeuse ont été reconnues entre 1990 et 2018, alors qu'on en compte 25 entre 1946 et 1989. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

The roles of a parent are to love and guide their children, to protect them, and unquestionably - to never harm them. For the episode that drops this time around on The True Crime Enthusiast Podcast, we are back to the start of the 2000's, and to my home area of North Wales, for a tragic and horrifying tale that shows that sometimes, a parent disregards these simple roles - and does the unthinkable. The events you will hear within are simply that. Unthinkable.  The episode contains details and descriptions of crimes and events, involving children, that some listeners may find offensive, disturbing, and or highly distressing, so discretion is advised whilst listening.
