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?

4.6 luminary networks of abed alumni

 to be honest, i failed - the last 10 minutes i spent in the presence of sir fazle abed he was talking about luminary networks but i didnt get the last education partnership abed wanted the world to design luminary- henceforth i will try my utmost to celebrate education luminary councils 

Through our prizes, our laureates' projects, and our Council of Luminaries, we see the Yidan Prize Foundation as a platform to bring change-makers together. Our ...
Sir Fazle Hasan Abed KCMG (April 1936 – December 2019) was the Founder of BRAC, ... BRAC Institute of Educational Development on our Council of Luminaries.
Dec 10, 2020 — In this year's edition of the Yidan Prize Summit, held virtually in Hong Kong, 16 academics have been named to the Council of Luminaries.

at the time i last met sir fazle in his dhaka office, i thought i had booked at least 2 more chances to listen: a summit in hong kong that got cancelled due to the 2019 riots and a field visit by a barefoot chinese medic who had turned herself into beijing's number 1 srudent coach on  sustainablity of village enterprises having spent 25 years working in usa on small enterprises

lets begin with this question - how does a human being get on a pathway from birth to early adolescence which both maximises her unique skills productively and positive communal emotions such as confidence, happiness, safey, courage , love

answer - ok lets define EDUCATION as the how ....but then i couldnt find that education pathway for my daughter; i have a long diary of all my failures living near washington dc ; so when i was first introduced to abed and found he had built an organisation of 100000 people helping poorest asian girls gain i greedily arranged as many tours to listen to abed as i could


if hopeful education luminary 5-minute casts were as frequent as weather forecasts on whatever media you apply; and that a luminary and alumni panel of abed cheered the world up with this programming - clues to where a being could linkin and get EDUCATION

so whats left to do is pilot luminary club- and thank heavens a hong kong billionnaire (not me) is a lead pilot -thank you charles!!
