    Millennium Development Goals

    in Current Events

     
    In 2000, 189 nations made a promise to free people from extreme poverty and multiple deprivations. This pledge became the eight Millennium Development Goals to be achieved by 2015. In September 2010, the world recommitted itself to accelerate progress towards these goals. (Source: UNDP )
     
    According a report published by the UNDP The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) are the most broadly supported, comprehensive and specific development goals the world has ever agreed upon. These eight time-bound goals provide concrete, numerical benchmarks for tackling extreme poverty in its many dimensions. They include goals and targets on income poverty, hunger, maternal and child mortality, disease, inadequate shelter, gender inequality, environmental degradation and the Global Partnership for Development.
     
    Adopted by world leaders in the year 2000 and set to be achieved by 2015, the MDGs are both global and local, tailored by each country to suit specific development needs. They provide a framework for the entire international community to work together towards a common end - making sure that human development reaches everyone, everywhere. If these goals are achieved, world poverty will be cut by half, tens of millions of lives will be saved, and billions more people will have the opportunity to benefit from the global economy.
     
    In our inaugural episode we hope to give a brief over view of the progress and challenges made  from the year 2000- 2005  and  focus on  Sub Saharan Africa to review the progress made  with reference to MDGs 1 and 4 .

    Millennium Development Goals and post-2015 Development Agenda
     
    The eight Mil­len­nium Devel­op­ment Goals (MDGs) – which range from halv­ing extreme poverty to halt­ing the spread of HIV/?AIDS and pro­vid­ing uni­ver­sal pri­mary edu­ca­tion – have been a mile­stone in global and national devel­op­ment efforts. The frame­work has helped to gal­va­nize devel­op­ment efforts and guide global and national devel­op­ment pri­or­i­ties. While three of the eight goals have been achieved prior to the final dead­line of 2015 progress has been uneven within and across coun­tries. Thus fur­ther efforts and a strong global part­ner­ship for devel­op­ment are needed to accel­er&s

    Millennium Development Goals: Progress and Challenges

    in Current Events

     
    In 2000, 189 nations made a promise to free people from extreme poverty and multiple deprivations. This pledge became the eight Millennium Development Goals to be achieved by 2015. The MDGs provide a framework for the entire UN system to work coherently together toward a common end. UNDP, global development network on the ground in 177 countries and territories, is in a unique position to advocate for change, connect countries to knowledge and resources, and coordinate broader efforts at the country level. In September 2010, the world recommitted itself to accelerate progress towards these goals.
     
    The declaration established eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and time-bound targets by which progress can be measured. With the 2015 deadline looming, how much progress has been made? And is the pace of progress sufficient to achieve the goals? The MDGs break down into 21 quantifiable targets that are measured by 60 indicators.

     
    In our inaugural episode we hope to give a brief over view of the progress and challenges made  from the year 2000- 2005  and  focus on  Sub Saharan Africa to review the progress made  with reference to MDGs 1 and 4 . 
    Join us as we explore this very important topic on MDGs.

    Perfecting Health In the Millennium

    in Health

    The news is filled with stories about Ebola, and breast cancer gets a lot of press too. Would it surprise you to know that neither makes the list of the 10 deadliest diseases? Even more surprising, perhaps, is that several of the deadliest diseases, including the number one killer in the world, are at least partially preventable. Where a person lives, access to preventive care, and quality of healthcare all factor into their risk.  Some of the most prevalent disease states suchs as Heart Disease, Cancer, COPD, CVA-Stroke and Alzeihemers disease

    What exactly is spiritual discipline and development? Welcome to my point of vie

    in Paranormal

    Spirituality is a uniquely personal appraoch to divinity, deity, God, and infinity. People do not realize this now, so they practice some form of religious ideology that is more often than not misguidance and erroneousness. Life is always and only personal, relational, social, global, and uniiversal. Going it alone is not easy to do at times. Resolving issues and developing talents is also part of the work. Letting go of negativity requires the willingness to stop using it to draw attention to the ego/body negatively. Spirituality is a daily practice. Welcomne to my point of view.

    Hire and Manage a Great Analytics Team

    in Technology

    Building an enterprise analytics team isn't just about competing for talent. The team that leads a big data analytics initiative needs to include the right mix of technical skills -- experience with data management and development of algorithms, models and applications -- as well as what we call soft skills, such as business experience and the ability to communicate with business unit leaders. Don't forget issues like identifying leaders, and rewarding and retaining your analytics talent in a competitive environment.


    Manav Misra, who leads a 70-person analytics team at Internet service provider CenturyLink, joins All Analytics Radio to share his experiences and his advice with the A2 community. Misra understands that the statistician, the visualization expert, and the Hadoop specialist bring different but vital talents to a team, and that the skills mix can vary from company to company.


    In this event you will learn:



    About recruiting analytics team members, whether they are fresh from college or bring 30 years of data-focused experience, at a time when it seems that every company is searching for the same talent
    How to identify the right mix of skills and experiences for your own organization
    How factors such as corporate demands for tight cybersecurity and the evolution of the Internet of Things raise the bar for the analytics team
    How you can motivate, reward, and retain data science talent


    Join us on Tuesday, September 1 at 3 pm (EDT) and bring your questions for Manav Misra.
