A project known as Robot Companions, “which will develop soft-bodied ‛perceptive’ robots as companions for the lonely,” has been selected as a finalist for an EU competition, that will award one billion Euros over ten years for two huge flagship projects that will apply information and communication technologies to social problems. The Future and Emerging Technologies (FET) Flagships aim to unite Europe’s scattered academic forces around well-defined missions that feed directly into the European Union’s social or political goals. “It’s like ‛mars-landing’ projects”.

Who knew it was one of the EU’s social and political goals to deal with the problem of loneliness?

Recently I spoke with an organizer of Christmas events in the Pyrenees Orientales, and I suddenly realized how much loneliness fills in the single people’s everyday life. An invitation list of 300 people is often reduced by half, most of which arise from the lonely, young as well…

‘To every age its art, to art its freedom’—the motto used in 1905 by the Vienna Secession arts movement around Gustav Klimt, Josef Hoffman and others—is relevant again amid the ongoing joint activities by the iProtest Arts Charity and Team Robbo. Klimt wasn’t the first European artist to be inspired by Oriental graphics and art, nor the last.


Cecilia W. Yu of iProtest, which she co-founded in 2011 with Frankie Stein, to encourage worldwide Creative Free speech, and Team Robbo have collaborated on guerilla art tactics in special events and exhibitions, including at Liverpool’s restored St. Luke’s (Bombed Out) Church and London’s Red Gallery.


Yu says she and Team Robbo “discovered there was a 6,000 year-old bridge between the Chinese Pictorial Language and Modern Day Graffiti Worldwide, so we decided to try a little bit of East-West Fusion to push the boundaries of both Graffiti and Fine Art, with…

Morocco holds global conference on employment

By Mohamed Saadouni for Magharebia in Casablanca – 10/10/12

Hundreds of participants from thirty countries gathered in Fes last week to examine the problems of labour, governance and employment.

The problem of employment has become a global phenomenon requiring intensification of efforts, development of new approaches and views of countries concerned, he said.

The event, organised by Morocco’s National Agency for the Promotion of Employment and Skills (ANAPEC) in association with the World Union of Public Employment Agencies, focused on the role of local administration and governance in promoting employment.

Attendees included experts from Morocco, Algeria, Croatia, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, Nigeria and Benin among many others, as well as representatives of the World Bank, the African Development Bank and the Arab Labour Organisation.

According to Souhail, two major obstacles prevent elimination of joblessness: training and its responsiveness to the labour demands and inability to ensure good governance to spur job creation for degree holders.

Participants in the conference shared their countries’ experiences in combating unemployment and managing the crisis between employers and local communes.

“Forty-eight per cent of populations in North Africa are not active,” said World Bank representative Nadine Poupart. “Political and social factors definitely help aggravate the problem. We know that active citizens in North Africa have greater confidence in the public sector and see it as more stable and secure than the private sector.”

She continued, “The problem of unemployment in North Africa is due to lack of major enterprises, failure to promote investment and aging management and administration mentality in Maghreb countries.”

Epigenetics!

Newer research has linked changes in the expression of genes that regulate stress responses, to the way mothers care for their children. These epigenetic studies also reveal how environmental stress can have a damaging effect on maternal care causing a vicious cycle that transcends generations. /google for epigenic + …. !

So not difficult to understand how and why! And our future is really put at high risks!

We tend to think of our genetic information as being encoded in DNA – in our genes. Brona McVittie from Epigenome NoE, UK, describes why this is only part of the story.

Illusive reality?

What is reality? What is fiction? What is right? What is wrong? What is true? What is false?
How do we handle difficult questions? How do we find answers? What are the solutions to our common existential problems?
