d nname in reporting "microcredit meltdown" ; microcredit is yunus' brand name - what bbc was criticising was the opposite system microfinance
it had its head in bbc dhaka headhunted by hasina family's media group - so got early reporting on yunus consistently wriong
have we been there before? - yes we have wehn the bbc held an inquest in why had it be muzzled by tony blair (whosew wife incidentally helped free hasina!) about the verity of mass destruction, it conducted its own public inquiry concluding that 500 letters saying that a bbc run by politicians isn't equitable withy bbcinvestment by the public was only a minority view
how did bbc get muzzled by politicians- well one aspect pof that goes back to world war 2 when national leaders had a temporary right to censor war-critical inforomation ; but the other aspect of this is quite recent - a thriving public sector broadcaster could be asking all the questions youth want about untrue commecrial tv and corporate lack of purpose- but that horrified rupert murdoch; so one of the reasons his empire bought up so much of the british establishment was to make sure that noboy ever experienced how valuable world service media could be…
system rule the world by and for less than 1% of people, or so that 100% of youth can grow up anywhere and enjoy freedom of productive lifetimes?
here we discuss 2 cases - possibly the 2 that will most destroy europe's youth's productive potential in this age of a million times more colaboration tecg than when man raced to the moon- unless they change their systems so as to save it
the bbc and the eu -clearly the british broadcasting corporation is public media. We argue in the post-industrial knowledge economy the main role of the EU needed in tranforming job readiness of young people through education and smart new media replacing dumbing down mass media and political institutions wherever tv media turned the practice of public servant into command and controller. however if you don't wish to include the European Union in the debate even after its Nober ratings a a peace prize mediator/catalyst then focus on the BBC

x bloomberg story - murdoch uses all his political and media contacts to destroy potential unique purpose of bbc as world's biggest investment in broadcasting owned by the public; motivated by deal with china permiting his star satellite network to stay on air; how can british establishment not free the bbc after murdoch news of world scandals as worst ever use of mobiles
blair censors story of iraq had no chemical weapons even after weapon inspector suicide- at last periodic review of bbc charter many citizens cited this as last straw ... bbc must be freed from political censorship but bbc's own public survey falsely analysed all of this
since 1984 we have explained how only public tv networks can help make smartest use of net generation emdia by debating how communities can solve millennium goal chalenges and open source such solutions interlocally and in a way that sustains youth - instead the bbc has managed to do the opposite of support investment in youth at every decision point deploying a monopoly of economic gurus on its nightly news programming who are exactly the greatest risk that Keynes General theory pleaded we never let rule the world
its sort of inevitable that comkmercail media programs people with misinfromation that prevents innovation society needs most but thats why it is obscene interesting when the bbc ends up programming people in ways that blind them to the greatest future choices any generation has been asked to interact http://charter.ning.com

1 Late 20th Century Forbidden Questions include: What contribution will emerging communication technologies make to the dissemination of propaganda? Does the myth of interactivity legitimize an unbalanced social relationship, or does it make it possible for the audience to challenge the propagandist? . Are truly interactive tools on the horizon? The important difference between our leadership democracy and a totalitarian state is that we are allowed to raise questions such as these. However, history shows that, in times of political crisis and social dislocation, this freedom is one of the first to disappear. As we approach the end of the twentieth century, finding answers to these questions is more important than ever.…
r the public - are chefs eg jamie oliver - and choirs eg gareth malone-
do tell us if you think the bbc has covered any other markets from the point of view of how to create jobs and sustain communities - it amazes me that the bbc doesnt seem to feel any responsibility for Keynes finding that economics either designs or destroys the futures people want most - and which you get largely depends on media's responsibility…
ople have ever made) - debate the role of the bbc and what was once a genuine world service
: why on planet earth hasn't BBC of the turn of the millennium sided with the internet's purpose being the most valuable open education media as opposed to being made an appendage of tv advertising's image age?…
For a few sunny minutes danny boyle's olympics opening to billions of people focused on relevant stories of celebrating nursing and berners lee web is for everyone. Why wasnt this BBC content transformation continued by such decision makers as Lord Coe who had pitched hosting an olympics that brought even the most celebrated sportsman back to ground in popularising really needed community solutions and Chris Patten chairman of the BBC with his history of huge change transitions- eg freeing hong kong in most civilised way UK could ....
.BBC2 is a project involving the 2 other Olympic hosts of 2008-2016 - Brazil and China and bangladesh the country with the best news of community-based life critical solutions youth can network. IF BBC1 isnt gtoing to help youth and the peoples take back broadcast media and revision 21st C public service, can this triad do so. As of June 2013, The Brazilian people are on the case. Lets hope Bangladesh and China start a triad that could be even more brilliant in trading knowhow than the so-called BRIC quartet (Brazil, Russia, India, China)-one of Bula's extraordinary network achievements ..BUT today the people of Brazil only need to look at Greece to see how much a nation is in danger of an Olympics being the final straw in ending its economy.

the story in 2013 The Social Apprentice
The Apprentice television show – a battle between contestants’ wit, flair and business acumen.
But are these role models representing the best of British business and the current wave of innovation that’s sweeping across the business world?
At Social Enterprise UK, we think not.
That's why we've launched ‘The Social Apprentice’ campaign, to highlight the omission of social enterprises and social entrepreneurs from mainstream media, and call for a new version of 'The Apprentice', to help tell their stories.
The social enterprise movement is growing and thriving. They are the organisations using business to tackle social or environmental problems. Over the past two decades, their explosion onto the UK business scene is in answer to a growing call from the public, politicians and influencers for more responsible ways of doing business.
With business practices and behaviours changing, and many, especially young people, spurning mainstream business in favour of social enterprises, we believe it is time to let the blossoming social entrepreneurs prove their worth, and show what they’re capable of, in front of a global audience.
Social enterprises come in all shapes and sizes - some of the most well-known names in the sector include businesses like Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, Pants to Poverty, The Big Issue, Belu water and Divine Chocolate.
New to social enterprise? Find out more about this global movement here.
Supporters and champions of the social enterprise sector, and leaders in business, are rallying together, calling on the BBC to host a different kind of Apprentice television programme.
To this end, the campaign has three main objectives:
1. Encourage the BBC to commission programmes that showcase the work of social entrepreneurs and social enterprises - people and organisations using business to create social change
2. Engage with production companies interested in developing programmes that focus on social enterprises that are transforming business practices and challenging social problems
3. Help social entrepreneurs and social enterprises, the change-makers in British business, use the media to tell their stories to the general public
We’re kicking off the campaign with an open letter to BBC One’s Acting Controller, Charlotte Moore. It explains our position, and the need to recognise the social entrepreneurs using their business talent to help people and the planet in the BBC's television programming.
The letter has been signed by social entrepreneurs, including John Bird, founder of The Big Issue, and Ben Ramsden founder of Pants to Poverty. Also pledging their support are previous participants of The Apprentice, including Tim Campbell MBE, founder Bright ideas Trust, The Apprentice’s first winner, and Melody Hossaini, Founder & CEO, InspirEngage International, who appeared in the sixth series.
We want SEUK members, social entrepreneurs, business people and members of the public to join our campaign by signing a petition, calling for the BBC to commission business programmes that showcase social enterprises. By signing the petition, you agree to support the campaign's key objectives and supporting media materials.
Click here to sign the petition in Google Documents.
Social enterprises’ stories are as interesting and diverse as their businesses, and their existence is a reflection of the surge in economic and social problems we presently face.
Who are the social entrepreneurs and social enterprises?
There are 70,000 social enterprises in the UK alone, employing more than a million people and generating billions of pounds for our economy.
Research shows that:
UK social enterprises are outstripping mainstream SMEs for growth and creating more jobs relative to turnover.
The UK is experiencing a social enterprise start up boom in deprived communities, where they’re needed most.
Social enterprises are much more likely to be run by young people, women and black and minority ethnic groups than traditional businesses.
The best of British business
Below are just some of the social enterprises doing business in the UK.
Belu donates 100% of its profits to WaterAid. Since 2011, award-winning Belu has generated more than £330,000 for the clean water charity, transforming the lives of over 20,000 people in the developing world >> www.belu.org
The Big Issue was set up to give homeless people a chance to earn a legal income, offering an alternative to begging, while using the content to campaign on the behalf of all socially excluded people. Weekly circulation figures top 135,000 in the UK alone >> www.bigissue.com
Divine Chocolate, the fair trade chocolate company which is 45% owned by cocoa farmers. When people buy their delicious chocolate, farmers receive a better deal for their cocoa and get a slice of the profits to invest into their communities >> www.divinechocolate.com
Pants to Poverty create trendy pants that raise ‘under-awareness’ for fair trade clothing, as well as help farmers in developing countries get a fair deal for their cotton >> www.pantstopoverty.com

llapses. This much I was able to demonstrate in 1999 when I edited a triple issue of the journal of marketing management on brand reality. This connected 2 decades of market modeling teamwork out of MIT with early databases on what societies mist wanted to produce with other people who believed there must be ways to do good with media
When dad and I first saw youth experimenting with digital networks in 1972, we knew at the core of our beings that the internet would become an invisible war between those who wanted to map the smartest human and education media and those who wanted to make the internet an appendix of all the tv advertising age's waste, bossy command and control, devaluation of transparency and dumbing down especially of youth.
Father's video questions whether it was fate or nature that caused tv mass media to spin the 2 anti-youth monopolies :
extreme political short-termism -somewhat more important than BRIC is whether BBC2.1 (Brazil Britain China) can turn on Olympics being all entertainment cost and linkin what's missing which is free youth celebrations of sustainability heroes. Isnt it od that you can become an overnight sensation if you run the fastest or are better than anyone at hitting a ball through goalposts, but if you wish to give a way a life critical service franchise solution there is no freedom of speech for that? if yiu think this is odd please linkin round Muhammad Yunus daughter at www.singforhope.org -since 9/11 she's been spnding half her life helping youth hunt out celebrities in every field who want to help youth find reality's heroes
We have known since my father's 1984 handbook on the net generation's next 3 billion jobs that Freedom of speech 's greatest problem revolves round open sourcing 30000 microfranchises - solutions to life critical service empowerment in one community that could be virally replicated to other communities facing the sqme sustainability challenge
Its very weird -isn't it - that people should take the term social media as a seriously new phenomenon. I mean: what other media would peoples want?. All media is by definition a giving away of the commons - so how did we the peoples end up with lawmakers licensing away media to anti-social ends? In any event, 2010s is the right time -quite probably human sustainability's last time - to ask how is social media defined. I would choose the definition - gives freedom of voice to celebrating life critical service franchises when these are invented and wherever the inventor primarily wants to open source the solution
Please think long and hard of the consequences of defining social media any other way- if you wish to chat about this here I am email@example.com
We Create What We Want. We wanted to go to the moon, so we went there. We achieve what we want to achieve. We accept that poverty is part of human destiny. It’s not! We believe we can create a poverty-free world. We need to invent ways to change our perspective. We can reconfigure our world if we can reconfigure our mindset. . Social business will be a new kind of business, making a difference in the world. Human beings are a wonderful creation embodied with limitless human qualities and capabilities. Entrepreneurs are not one-dimensional human beings, dedicated to maximizing profit. They are multi-dimensional: political, emotional, social, spiritual, environmental. The desire to do great things for the world can be a powerful driving force Young people dream about creating a perfect world of their own. Social business will give them a challenge to make a difference by using their creative talent. Let us join hands to unleash our energy and creativity. Collectively, we can create a poverty-free world.” Source : http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/peace/laureates/2006/yunus-lecture-en.html ...
Coming from a family of statisticians whose life work has focused on communications. the mots heinous act a professional group can do is make up a number for something they don't know how to measure. Sadly most professions found themselves doing this in the race to go global. I was there in one of the Big 5b Global accountants as they discovered the gap between their tangible audit (what a compamy physically owned) and the rest of the value they couldn't measure as the post-industrial revolution made service then knowlhow networking worth more than the commodity physical product. One of the first let do evil numerology inventions was brand valuation. Accountants hired out how to calculi this toad gencies who immediately developed algorithms which went up the more ad money was spent on image-making, the more realty-mang purpose ws destroyed. (NO wonder the httest ceo benchmarking networks are to trying to reconnect with their scetors sustainability and pro-youthy purspoe- such as Joh mackey's conscious capitalism movement or until he died ra Anderson's Interface Sustainability movement.
Anyone who knows the difference between add and multiply can question how much evil bling numerology aloritms are spreadsheeting. Multipy is the operand of connectivity, addition is the iperand of seprbility and extrenalisation (passing on risk you know most about to some society who knows least about or whose government doesn't care)
WHY DOES THIS MATTER
Because we defined every opportunity for the net generation to be more productive and collaborative around win-win models depending on how multiplies value in use unlike things that get consumed up. Whether the industrial age's zero-sum think had to cause all the wars it did is something beyond my ken treport out. What I am hear to do is question why we don't peacefully free all our children arpound the win-win age of knowledge multiplying given that on the 2010s we have a million tiems more collaboration tech than when man raced to the moon in the 1960s. When DR Yunus speaks like this at his Nobel Laureate's exceptance speech- it is a wonderful story
But is there anyone states-side in all the sectors of doing good and advocacy concerned with mapping the links between the storyreloing and how to replicate the microfrmachises that can make even youth's most impossible hoistoricdereams future realities if we win-win model instead of audit zero-sums
Can the most dismal Aunty of them all be reborn
The BBC is known by many Brits as Aunty. The British people have invested more in this public media than any nation making the purpose of the BBC intriguing - what could the most social of Broadcasting Media do. Surely it would let itself be shouted down when it had evidence of there being no arms of mass destruction before George and Tony raced into war without a cultural clue in the world. But then you wouldn't be factoring in what an extreme crisis of confidence the BBC suffers from. To keep his entertainment licence in China the same Mr Murdoch who later linked in tabloid media, politicians and police into wire-tapping the mobile phone of a teenager killed by a pervert, promised to use all his power to oppose the BBC and the british people's right to celebrate the most social of mass broadcasting. Would even George Orwell have imagined how anti-social media, politicians and powerful "monopoly-to-rule" professionals have become…
