ROME (AP) – Bill Gates pressed U.N. food agencies on Thursday to become more efficient in helping poor farmers and to set up a kind of accountability “report card” system for countries receiving aid, as he announced nearly $200 million in grants from his foundation.
The Microsoft founder brought his campaign to fight poverty and hunger in Africa and Asia to a forum of the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), one of three Rome-based U.N. food agencies.
He called on the trio of agencies to improve coordination among themselves and to insist that the countries receiving food aid, agriculture technology, know-how and other assistance show what they have accomplished with periodic reports he likened to “report cards” or “score cards.”Accountability, accountability report card, Agricultural, agricultural development, agriculture technology, aid, Asia, assistance, bill gates, Card, coordination, development, food agencies, food aid, forum, Foundation, Fund, grants, Headlines, hunger in africa, kind, know-how, microsoft, microsoft founder, Permaculture & Horticulture, Politics, poor farmers, poverty, report, rome, score, score cards, show, technology, Thursday, trio, usa today, world

Why has so much journalism succumbed to propaganda? Why are censorship and distortion standard practice? Why is the BBC so often a mouthpiece of rapacious power? Why do the New York Times and the Washington Post deceive their readers?
Why are young journalists not taught to understand media agendas and to challenge the high claims and low purpose of fake objectivity? And why are they not taught that the essence of so much of what’s called the mainstream media is not information, but power?

The World Bank and IMF are proposing global carbon taxes on aviation and ship fuels in developed economies – including Australia – to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions, according to a draft proposal seen by AFP on Friday.
The proposal suggests an international charge on aviation and maritime bunker fuels of $US25 per ton of CO2, which it said would “reduce CO2 emissions from each sector by around five to 10 per cent”.AFP, Agenda 21, Australia, aviation, Bank, bunker, bunker fuels, carbon, carbon dioxide emissions, carbon tax, cent, charge, co2 emissions, dioxide, Draft, draft proposal, Friday, global carbon, Headlines, IMF, imf world, maritime, proposal, sector, ship, SMH, Source, tax, ton, world, world bank

An immensely powerful international organization that most people have never even heard of secretly controls the money supply of the entire globe. It is called the Bank for International Settlements, and it is the central bank of central banks. It is located in Basel, Switzerland, but it also has branches in Hong Kong and Mexico City. It is essentially an unelected, unaccountable central bank of the world that has complete immunity from taxation and from national laws. Even Wikipedia admits that “it is not accountable to any single national government.“ The Bank for International Settlements was used to launder money for the Nazis during World War II, but these days the main purpose of the BIS is to guide and direct the centrally-planned global financial system. Today, 58 global central banks belong to the BIS, and it has far more power over how the U.S. economy (or any other economy for that matter) will perform over the course of the next year than any politician does. Every two months, the central bankers of the world gather in Basel for another “Global Economy Meeting”. During those meetings, decisions are made which affect every man, woman and child on the planet, and yet none of us have any say in what goes on. The Bank for International Settlements is an organization that was founded by the global elite and it operates for the benefit of the global elite, and it is intended to be one of the key cornerstones of the emerging one world economic system. It is imperative that we get people educated about what this organization is and where it plans to take the global economy.bank for international settlements, central banks, cornerstones, economic system, Economics, economy, global economy, global elite, global financial system, Headlines, immunity, international organization, Mexico City, michael snyder, money, money supply, national government, nazis, Politics, PressTv, Society, wikipedia, woman and child, world, world war ii

A LEADING doctor has questioned whether the cash-strapped NHS should continue to spend a fortune keeping terminally ill patients alive.
Dr Brian Keighley, chairman of the British Medical Association Scotland, said tens of thousands of pounds are spent on drugs to extend some cancer victims’ lives by just weeks or months.
He added: “We have to make a decision on some of the oncological treatments that have limited outcomes, remembering that 80 per cent of money is spent in the last three years of life.
“They must be looked at critically. We have to keep development and innovation and keep pressing the boundaries against the ravages of terminal illness.
“But, at the same time, we have to have some evidence base as to how appropriate it is to spend many thousands of pounds to prolong life for a matter of weeks or months.Association, boundaries, british medical association, cancer victims, Chairman, daily record, decision, development, doctor, dr brian, evidence, evidence base, fortune, Headlines, keighley, life, NHS, tens of thousands, terminal illness, terminally ill patients, time
