20th century intelligence - ending poverty of half world without electricity -although Keynes 1936 (last capter general theiry money inetrest emplymen) asked Economists to take hipocrati oath as the profession that ended extreme poverty, most economists did the opposite. Whats not understandable is how educatirs failed to catalogue the lessons of the handful who bottom-up empowered vilages to collaboratively end poverty. There are mainly 2 inteligences to understand- Borlaug on food; fazle abed on everything that raised life expectancy in tropical viage asia from low 40s to 60s (about 7 below norm of living with electricity and telecomes). Between 1972 and 2001, Abed's lessons catalogued in this mooc had largelu built the nation of Bangladesh and been replicated with help of Unicef's James Grant acroo most tropical asian areas. What's exciting is the valley's mr ad mrs steve jobs invted Fazle Abed to share inteligences 2001 at his 65th birthday party. The Jobs and frineds promised to integrate abed's inteligence into neighborhod university stanfrd which in any event wanted Jobs next great leap the iphone. The Valley told abed to start a university so that women graduates from poor and rich nations could blend inteligence as Abed's bottom of the pyramid vilage began their journey of leapfrog modles now that gridd infarstructures were ni longer needed for sdiar and mobile. Abed could also help redesign the millennium goals which were being greenwashed into a shared worldwide system coding frame by 2016. There re at Abed's 80th birtday party , the easy bitwas checking this mooc was uptodate. The hard bit - what did Abed mean by his wish to headhunt a taiwanese american to head the university's 3rd decade starting 2020?

3.1 mothers of oral rehydration

 no sooner than abed had 5.1 built 15000 village homes for refugees (1972) whose homes had been raised to the ground by war of independence- than abed found most women in village had noting to do but breed children up to a third of whom were dying before the age of 5 of the tropics greatest infant killer: diarrhea- the nations cholera lab had found a solution oral rehydration - what a dehydrtaed infant urgently needs is potable water sugar and salt mixed in exact proportions; the lab didnt know how to teach tens of millions of mainly illiterate mothers who had no access to electricity grids (hence no communications other than person to person networking) 

unicef started declaring year of child from 1977- so abed saw the opportunity; he tested how to connect mothers across his metlab of 15000 homes and applied to unicef for a grant to go nationwide with this villager action learning network; both chinese villagers and unicef's james grant were delighted to start spreading oral rehydration around the world of tropical village mothers; grant was so pleased he asked abed : do you have another village health need- abed said vaccination nation 3.3 


if diarrhea is infants biggest risk to life- whats biggest risk to what nature breeds in ocens - -eg stable ph  ;ocean heatwaves ...

one of bangladesh's greatest crises - as you travel down far east coastlines from japan downwards (with sad exception of north korea) extraordinary advances in human lives/wealth have advanced along the coastlines- bagladesh's bay of bengal is the first hugely populated area which has not developed much wealth; at the same time oceans have become the greatest risk to sustaiability in many ways that need both expensive research and local implementation; put another way just as bangladesh women shared with tropical chinese women inland how to save infants from death, bangladesh desperately needs inclusion in far east ocean research and implementation; any failure of western empires to value this is very bad news for billion women empowerments next needs
