When Sunil Bharti Mittal started in business more than 30 years ago in Ludhiana in Northern India, he borrowed $1,500 to make bicycle crankshafts. Today, he heads the $5 billion Bharti Group, whose flagship company, Bharti Airtel, is India's largest mobile phone operator. Forbes magazine, which estimates Mittal's net worth at some $11 billion, ranks him among Asia's self-made millionaires. Mittal spoke with India KnowledgeWharton at the U.S.-India Business Council's 33rd annual meeting in Washington, D.C., about the leadership and entrepreneurial lessons he has learned during his career. Among them: When faced with a choice between perfection and speed, choose speed; perfection will follow.
The World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, is an annual gathering of the most competent world economists, decision-makers and politicians. But besides annual meetings, the Davos forum is a permanently functioning international think-tank. And these days, the agenda of the 2008 Forum is being finalized. What will be the main points of the agenda? We will try to find it out from our today's guest - Mr. Christophe Weber.

The Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) is an intergovernmental international organization founded in Shanghai on 15 June 2001 by six countries: China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. Its member states cover an area of over 30 million km2, or about three fifths of Eurasia, with a population of 1.455 billion, about a quarter of the world's total. Its working languages are Chinese and Russian.
SCO's predecessor, the Shanghai Five mechanism, originated and grew from the endeavor by China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan to strengthen confidence-building and disarmament in the border regions. In 1996 and 1997, their heads of state met in Shanghai and Moscow respectively and signed the Treaty on Deepening Military Trust in Border Regions and the Treaty on Reduction of Military Forces in Border Regions. There after, this annual meeting became a regular practice and has been held alternately in the five member states. The topics of the meeting gradually extended from building up trust in the border regions to mutually beneficial cooperation in the political, security, diplomatic, economic, trade and other areas among the five states. The President of Uzbekistan was invited to the 2000 Dushanbe Summit as a guest of the host state. As the first meeting of the five heads of state took place in Shanghai, the cooperation mechanism was later known as the "Shanghai Five".

William Cooper's Hour of the Time Radio Broadcast
Consists of a reading from a book entitled "Fundamental Laws: 68th Convocation of the Rose Cross Order" published in 1916 as a summary of their annual meeting.
In the last part (4) comes the SHOCKER where it is in print in 1916 that the United States of America and Mexico (and Canada) would be UNITED. Any such union (such as the North American Union) would create a new country that would have a new Constitution and would certainly lack any viable Bill Of Rights. Uphold the Constitution.
Defend the Bill of Rights. Preserve the Republic.

We'd love to hear from you - please respond in the comments section or via video response.
What images come to mind when you think of human rights? Pictures of torture, unjust detention, police brutality, political persecution? Or do you think about climate change? What about when you think of the environmental movement? Do you picture oceans, forests, whales, butterflies? Or do you think about people?

Although the environmental and human rights movements are sometimes perceived as two different things - especially in many developed countries like the United States - in much of the world they are closely intertwined.
In March 2009, two WITNESS staff members Kelly Matheson and Priscila Neri traveled to the annual meeting of the Environmental Law Alliance Worldwide to speak activists from around the world about this connection. We asked them: do environmental rights = human rights?
The responses we heard were so illuminating that we decided to make this short video about what they told us. Share your thoughts with us too!

From Toronto - According to a report published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, pregnant women with glucose intolerance are more likely to demonstrate cardiovascular risk factors after birth. Researchers followed nearly 500 women, looking for the prevalence of metabolic syndrome--a general term for risk factors such as obesity, high blood pressure, and low HDL cholesterol--after birth. They found an association between even mild glucose intolerance and metabolic syndrome just 3 months following birth.
From California - Patients may recover quicker from knee surgery if they have a good stress response to the operation, according to a report published in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery. Researchers studied 57 patients scheduled for knee surgery, counting the amount of immune cells in the blood up to 10 days before, the morning of, and 30 minutes after the operation. They found that patients whose immune system had a good stress response to surgery showed better knee function and mobility as well as less pain up to a year following the operation.
And finally, from Chicago - Radiation exposure from mammography increases the risk of breast cancer in women with a family history or genetic predisposition to the disease. For these high risk women, researchers found that low dose radiation exposure from mammography raised the likelihood of breast cancer 1.5 times, while 5 or more exposures or exposure under the age 20 resulted in a 2.5 times increased risk. This research was presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America.
