Hans Rosling shatters the myth of “developed” versus “developing” nations

Hans Rosling uses Gapminder.org to dispel the myth of the developing vs developed nations, by looking at the mortality rates of children in nations over the last 50 years. There are some interesting points, but I am not sure you can make such statements without looking at more than just the mortality rate. Also the idea that having between 2 and 4 children should be the norm, should be questioned.

The power of the silent movie

Just in time for Valentines Day, I found this Disney short (2012) about the Paperman. It tells a story without the spoken word. It blends traditional animation and computer animation. The short has received a nomination for Best Animated Short Film at the 85th Academy Awards, and won the Annie Award for Best Animated Short Subject.

About me

I am an African living in Scotland. A son, a father, an ex-husband, a boyfriend, a teacher and friend trying to piece together the stories that my God, my parents, my ex-wife, my girlfriend, my pupils and my friends are telling me, so that I can tell my own story. Thanks to all for your support and advice. I still love good coffee and popcorn.
