Social media ‘could transform public services’.


(Scroll back to get full content)
Social media could transform the NHS and other public services in the same way that file-sharing changed the music industry, a conference has heard.
Tom Loosemore, head of 4iP, Channel 4’s Innovation Fund.

“The design of public services around the needs of the public not the needs of the state enabled by the Internet, that’s the big change,” he said.

“I’m not sure that the government can re-engineer itself from the inside out,” he said. “It’s going to take the demands of people to force it into shape.”

He counselled attendees to “shout loud and force change” on local and central government.

He told conference goers: “You” are the future of public services not .gov.uk.”

The World has changed already, because of you, ‘shout loud and force change’ – now!
“You” have been named as Time magazine’s Person of the Year for the growth and influence of user-generated content on the Internet. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/6187113.stm

Get your ‘head around it’. Thatcherite (nasty party legacy.

“Every dollar provided as a tax cut, the economy gets about $1.02 to $1.16 cents back.  On the other hand, ALL government spending … even if borrowed … provide jobs. Period. We will have to work to fix the source of the $100 bucks to the grocer (or grocer’s daughter – M.Thatcher PM) over the long haul, but not worry about that now. The grocer will use the $100 to buy more groceries, which in turn will help the truck driver(s) and those associated with the trucking business (dock workers, teamsters, field workers, etc.) keep their jobs (and they will spend the money they earn on stuff, too), and the farmer and his workers will get some of it, too. That one hundred dollars ripples out and influences lots of other people.  For every $1 spent in this fashion, we can count on the economy generating about $1.42-$1.60 cents in economic growth. (no good if you give money to the savers, upper middle class, bankers, and banks adjusting balance sheets, so on… http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/8392791.stm its got to get out there)

I do not wish to pay for the foolishness of other fools. I have worked hard all my life and followed the rules. I expect my government to do what it is designed to do …(paid by most of us – foolishly?) – protect and serve me.” (stupidly – they tried to limit ‘established freedoms in the countryside’ due to bigotry, ignorance and hatred, and they now wish to bring in some very silly taxes, see, article below on education)

‘$100 Bucks to the Grocer’ – paying for ‘The War for You and Me’ – includes most Muslims and Islamists or religionists or ideologists from whatever strain. http://www.marketoracle.co.uk/Article3284.html Muslims aren’t supposed to be hoarding gold, as they very well know and ordered by their God; but the illiteracy rate is amazingly high in most of Asia (complete disgrace), especially those on Jihad, which most of their people or their countries aren’t; they should be made to pay for any major costs and losses of the war. The gold price has sored, it is a worthless metal, except for currency matters and lots of greedy hoarding! Tax the vast Sovereign Flows, so, on….

The Countryside as a Classroom

Education is an important part of our Rural Manifesto which we will continue to promote to all political parties and candidates prior to the General Election. In particular we are calling for outdoor education to be included in the National Curriculum. This would ensure that children gain access to the countryside as part of their education and experience all the learning, health and personal development benefits that it has to offer.

 

Children and teachers support our proposal. Research we carried out earlier this year discovered that 85% of six to fifteen year olds wanted to be able to enjoy countryside activities and 97% of teachers believe it is important for pupils to learn about the countryside as part of the curriculum.

Unfortunately, this enthusiasm is not matched by reality. Only 46% of children had made a school trip to the countryside last year and 76% of teachers highlighted concerns about health and safety as the main barrier to outdoor education.

Yet when we asked 138 local authorities, through the Freedom of Information Act, for details about claims made against them we discovered that there were only 364 legal claims relating to injuries sustained on school trips between 1998 and 2008, with fewer than half of those resulting in payouts. In total £404,952 was paid out, meaning local authorities paid out just £293 per year over a ten year period as the Guardian reported.

With the threat of legal action now put in context we will be continuing with our campaign to give every child from every background access to the countryside as part of their education.

Fragile families in the UK face a shortage of emotional support and friendship as much as a lack of material support, says a think tank. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/8399636.stm Satanic ‘Mills of history’ and ‘God called History’. Karl Marx thought humanity could not help this (constant and terrible behaviour towards one another), as the ‘Mills of History’ grind so slowly, but grind they do, and the certain outcome was to be a transformation akin to that sought by the Jews, who eagerly awaited the coming of the Messiah. Marx believed in a ‘God, but called him History’.

“But also, taxing bankers rather than banks would not weaken the banks themselves, at a time when they need to accumulate capital.” http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/8398189.stm How revolting!

About luckyme0

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! https://charleslizzy.com/2011/08/06/independent-schools-inspectorate-isi-marketing-spirituality-buzzword-or-maybe-even-for-you-to-shiver-at-the-something/ The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting. Interests: REBT Counselling, Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Psychology, Reading, Popular Science, School Ethos, Philosophy, History, Family, Parenting, Psychology, Horse Riding, Sailing, Rescue Boat Driver, Skiing (Teppichswinger), TV Documentaries, Motorbike Cross Country Riding, Volunteer Sports Stewarding, Writing, Primitive Man, Pre-history, Social Anthropology, British Humanist Association, BHA, Meaning of Life, The Big Questions, Where am I, What am I, Why am I, Hippie Love, Knowledge, Education, Globalisation. Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book http://www.bbcshop.com/science+nature/the-ascent-of-man/invt/9781849901154/ with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
