The conference shown on the video above is VERY interesting, and the resource discussed in it could be helpful in other calamity/critical situations as well, in some extent. And, in natural disasters (such as earthquakes and tornados), I think it couldn’t be different… Reminding that GoogleMaps can be easily installed in most cellphone sets (smartphones and, of course, iPhone included), directly from Google’s WAP address.

On the other hand… This could serve as a reflection for, say, ‘separating the wheat from the chaff’, concerning either effective or non-effective causes.

To me, Dambisa Moyo’s ‘Dead Aid’ represents a significant subsidy for discussion not only for the African case, but also to Latin America’s economical issues in general, and for most developing countries as well.
