Make Up Meeting Articles
We recently attended a conference for our work and heard an amazing keynote speech by Dr. Natalie Stavas. Dr. Stavas is a Harvard trained pediatrician who happened to be running the Boston marathon at the time of the terrorist attack. She was fortunately away from the bomb explosions in the finish line, and she made […]
In this week’s article, Khan Academy founder Sal Khan discusses teaching for mastery, not test scores. Historically in the West, education was imparted through a liberal arts education process. A tutor, or a set of tutors, were tasked with teaching a single student, which started with a review of the classics – Plato, Homer, etc […]
Nobody can say what the world will look like in 5 years, much less in 65 years. However, children born this year will be retiring in 2071, and soon they will enter schools expected to prepare them for this future. In a past article, we discussed the jobs that will be lost in the future. […]

This week’s make up article is about the future of work and the changes that will be brought on by machine automation and computerization. Here’s a video about it by Anthony Goldbloom for TED. If you’re not up for watching the video, there is a digest/summary below the video. Famed economist John Maynard Keynes […]
Being an E-Club, our Rotary Club exists mostly on the web. While this represents many challenges, it is also a great opportunity – to reach a broader audience anytime and anywhere. One of the ways a particular Rotary cause can be promoted is through the multitude of video sharing services like Youtube and Vimeo, which […]
This week’s discussion article focuses on increasing agricultural output without significantly increasing the carbon footprint of agriculture. Currently, modern agriculture needs to increase its output by 70% to meet the nutritional demands of the growing earth population, which will become 10 billion by 2050, from 7 billion people we have currently in 2016. This week’s […]
This week’s article focuses on the TED talk given by Syrian architect Marwa Al-Sabouni, about the architecture and urban planning in Syria laid the foundation for the current, brutal civil war.
