Iron Ore Heritage - Evolution Of Mining Methods
 
01:20
Mining evolved from surface to underground back to open pit. Within decades, shafts and tunnels were dug into the ore body to follow the high content ore. Drilling, electricity, and explosives aided in the development of underground mining. In the 20th century, underground miners delved to depths of 3500 feet in their continuing quest to extract the ore.

ECUADOR: QUITO: INDIAN ACTIVISTS CLASH WITH POLICE [V]
 
01:08
English/Nat VOICED BY RICHARD VAUGHAN Indian activists clashed with police in the Ecuadorian capital Quito on Friday during a protest against the government. The thousands of Indians were demanding better education and services and called for Ecuador's President Jamil Mahuad to step down. The group initially intended to support a strike by the country's transport workers regarding gasoline prices but the truck and taxi drivers came to an agreement on Friday with the government ending a 11-day stalemate which had paralysed the country. VOICE-OVER: 00.02 After marching for two days from the countryside, thousands of Indians filled a park in downtown Quito to demand economic help from the government for their impoverished communities. 00.12 They're also calling for the resignation of Ecuador's President Jamil Mahuad in the face of widespread unrest in the capital and the country's failing economy. 00.21 The Indian protest was originally intended to support a strike by transport workers against a thirteen percent increase in the price of gasoline. 00.29 The poor South American nation faces its worst economic crisis in seventy years with a one and a half billion U-S dollar budget deficit and its banking system near collapse. 00.39 But an eleven day stalemate that paralysed the country's transport infrastructure came to an end on Friday after the government agreed to freeze fuel prices and lift a state of emergency that empowered soldiers to break up protests and detain strikers. 00.53 The pressure is building for Mahuad whose government promised economic reforms which so far have failed to materialise. The two-thirds of Ecuadorans still living in poverty have little patience. 01.08 VISION ENDS You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/youtube/b843306797821978d00b756d22b847a4 Find out more about AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/HowWeWork

Transforming Health Care in the Information Age (Jack Cochran)
 
01:09:19
http://www.ischool.berkeley.edu/newsandevents/events/deanslectures/20130227jackcochran Transforming Health Care in the Information Age Jack Cochran, MD Wednesday, April 10, 2013 For most of history, health care was centered around the doctor's office or hospital. It was the era of the lone practitioner, the omniscient physician to whom patients turned to treat their ailments. That was the industrial age of medicine. Today, health care is much more complex. The proliferation of information available to physicians and to their patients has fundamentally shifted the locus of information and power to patients. In the information age of medicine, we must optimize the use of information, technology, tools, and teams. We need to turn masses of patient data, science, and clinical evidence into clinical knowledge. This information must be available to patients, physicians, and care teams. And they must have access to technology and tools to make the right thing easier to do. Health care must transform in order to meet the challenges of the information age and to address the crisis of affordability and value in health care. We must become a learning industry. We need to draw from all parts of the industry; harnessing our collective knowledge, working collaboratively, and learning together. We can't treat our way out of the health care crisis. We must learn our way out of it. Bio: Jack Cochran, MD, FACS, is the executive director of The Permanente Federation, headquartered in Oakland, California. The Permanente Federation represents the national interests of the regional Permanente Medical Groups, which employ 16,000 physicians who care for 9 million Kaiser Permanente members. Kaiser Permanente is composed of the Permanente Medical Groups, Kaiser Foundation Health Plan, Inc., and Kaiser Foundation Hospitals. Prior to his appointment to The Permanente Federation in October 2007, Dr. Cochran served as executive medical director, president, and chairman of the board of the Colorado Permanente Medical Group (CPMG) for Kaiser Permanente. He began his career with CPMG in 1990 as the chief of plastic surgery and founder of the plastic surgery department. Dr. Cochran began his medical career in clinical and private practice in Denver, Colorado. He went on to serve at Exempla Saint Joseph Hospital as chief of plastic surgery, chair of surgical services, and president of medical staff, and at Exempla Healthcare as a board member and chairman of its quality committee. Dr. Cochran serves as a member of the board of directors of the American Medical Group Association, the board of directors of the Alliance of Community Health Plans, and the UCSF Global Health Group Advisory Board. For more than 20 years, he has volunteered his reconstructive surgery and consulting services in third world countries, aiding underserved populations in Nicaragua, the Philippines, Ecuador, Tanzania, and Nepal. Dr. Cochran is also a past president of the Consortium for Community Centered Comprehensive Child Care (C6), a foundation that has built hospitals in east Africa. He is a vocal advocate for nurses and oversees the Lois and John Cochran Education Award, an annual scholarship given to oncology nurses at the Lutheran Medical Center in Denver, Colorado. As a frequent speaker and author on a broad range of health care topics including health information systems, health care delivery system reform, and integrated care delivery, Dr. Cochran's insights gained from decades of work on the front lines of health care provide a unique perspective. He has actually participated in implementing many of the priorities called for in health reform, including Kaiser Permanente's electronic health record, the largest successful non-governmental clinical information systems deployment in the world. He addressed reform at the 2010 National Governors Association Annual Meeting, testified before the Congressional Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions in 2009, and presented at the Senate Finance Committee's 2008 Health Reform Summit. Dr. Cochran earned his medical degree from the University of Colorado and served residencies at Stanford University Medical Center and the University of Wisconsin Hospital. He is board certified in otolaryngology (head and neck surgery) and in plastic and reconstructive surgery.
NICARAGUA: STUDENTS & TEACHERS CLASH WITH RIOT POLICE
 
02:06
Natural Sound Nicaraguan students and teachers clashed with anti-riot police in the capital, Managua, early on Sunday, for the second day running. They were protesting against a government plan to change the way education is subsidised. At least injured three students had to be hospitalised. Students and teachers continued their protests against the government's method of subsidising education for the second day running on Friday. In at least four different spots in the city, students threw rocks and bottles at police, who responded by firing tear gas cannisters. The clashes continued into the early hours of Sunday morning. At least three students were hospitalized with injuries. On Friday, angry students barricaded themselves inside a building at the Jesuit-run Central American University. Police, meanwhile, seized the main building at the University of Nicaragua school of engineering to keep protesters from beginning a sit-in there. Three trucks belonging to the Managua government were set afire on the city's outskirts. Students also turned out on Thursday to protest against an effort by conservative President Arnoldo Aleman to streamline the distribution of government subsidies among Nicaragua's 10 universities. Until now, the total government subsidy, 3.1 (m) million U-S dollars, was turned over to the Universities Council, comprising the rectors of the 10 universities. The council then distributed the money among the schools. Aleman and a majority in the National Legislature want the money to be government itself to distribute the money to the individual universities, whose expenditures will then be audited. Students, teachers and the council claim the new policy would violate university autonomy.

Rapaport, February, 2, 2011: Fairtrade Gold in London
 
06:44
RAPAPORT... Jeweler and fair trade activist Greg Valerio speaks to Rapaport News about the upcoming Fairtrade and Fairmined gold launch for Valentine's Day 2011 in London. Giving gold jewelry is about love, romance and beauty. But all too often, how gold is mined is not a pretty story. That's why the world's first Fairtrade and Fairmined gold from South America will be launched by the Fairtrade Foundation and the Alliance for Responsible Mining (ARM) on Wednesday, February 9 at the Gold Suite, The Hatton, 51-53 Hatton Garden, London. This groundbreaking move will open up new opportunities for thousands of impoverished small-scale and artisanal miners in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru to sell under Fairtrade and Fairmined terms and through the Fairtrade premium, invest in business improvement and community projects. Fairtrade and Fairmined gold has the potential to radically reform the gold jewelry sector, improving the lives of millions of miners and their communities in some of the world's poorest regions. Though artisanal and small-scale miners produce 10 percent of global gold supplies, they account for 90 percent of labor in gold extraction, experiencing high levels of poverty. The launch of Fairtrade and Fairmined certified gold provides a lifeline for communities who find themselves at the mercy of volatile markets, when agriculture and other livelihoods are not viable. Many miners often face exploitation from middle men who pay below market prices and cheat them on weight and purity of the gold content. Mining communities usually lack basic sanitation, clean and safe drinking water and have poor housing, little or no access to education or healthcare and are financially unstable. Fairtrade and Fairmined certification is an important development tool, and will complement other development interventions. The project was first piloted by ARM with nine mining organizations in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. More mining organizations from Latin America will shortly join the system. ARM is also establishing a network of pilot projects in Africa, and later in Asia. Fairtrade and Fairmined gold will be first launched in the U.K. and then rolled out to other countries with a long term vision of capturing 5 percent of the gold jewelry market during a 15-year period. Fairtrade and Fairmined gold will be co-labelled, bearing both the FAIRTRADE Mark and the Fairmined Mark, demonstrating the strength of the partnership between the two organizations. www.fairtrade.org.uk Additional notes: The FAIRTRADE Mark is a certification mark and a registered trademark of Fairtrade International (FLO) of which the Fairtrade Foundation is the U.K. member. The Fairtrade Foundation is an independent certification body which licenses the use of the FAIRTRADE Mark on products which meet international Fairtrade standards. This independent consumer label is now recognized by 72 percent of U.K. consumers and appears on products as a guarantee that disadvantaged producers are getting a better deal. Today, more than 7.5 million people -- farmers, workers and their families -- across 58 developing countries benefit from the international Fairtrade system. The Fairmined Mark ensures that the gold has been extracted and processed in a fair way and responsible manner. This means that the miners receive a fair price, good health and safety practises, care for the environment and participate in the social development of their communities. ARM is an international community-based multi-sector governed initiative created to enhance equity and wellbeing in artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM) communities. ARM is committed to social justice and environmental responsibility as the values driving the transformation of ASM. The partnership between FLO and ARM will create differentiated market access for gold products to support social, environmental and economic development outcomes for artisanal and small scale miners through: --A credible program of support and development for artisanal and small-scale miners. --A high profile and trusted product label to drive market access on terms that support development. ARM has the experience and networks to provide the necessary support, and Fairtrade labelling to create differentiated market access on terms that support development.

Dispatch from the Columbian Red Zone: Temas Teani in the heart of the jungle Santos FARC
 
27:51
'Impunity': A film by Juan José Lozano & Hollman Morris http://www.impunitythefilm.com/ Columbia dispatch: FARC negotiate but death squads rule http://www.radio4all.net/index.php/program/70357 http://www.bcfmradio.com/2013/08/09/17/friday-drivetime-134/31509 Colombian peace talks resume in Cuba as conflict rages http://uk.reuters.com/article/2013/07/28/uk-colombia-peace-idUKBRE96R08620130728 By Marc Frank - HAVANA | Sun Jul 28, 2013 4:43pm BST (Reuters) - The Colombian government and leftist FARC rebels resumed peace negotiations in Havana on Sunday after a recess of more than two weeks, during which 19 soldiers and a number of rebels were killed and rural protests left four farmers dead and several police injured. More than 200,000 people have died and millions have been displaced in fighting since the FARC, or Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, was founded in 1964 as a communist agrarian reform movement. The talks, which began in November 2012, recess every few weeks, then resume, even as the longest, and last, armed conflict in Latin America rages on. "Many Colombians do not understand why we are in a dialogue when attacks by armed groups continue," Colombian former vice president and lead government negotiator, Humberto de la Calle, said before the new round of talks began. Patience with the FARC, considered a terrorist group by the United States and the European Union, has deteriorated in recent weeks after an escalation of violence that culminated last weekend in the death of 19 soldiers and the announcement that the guerrillas had kidnapped U.S. citizen Kevin Scott Sutay in June and now wanted to free him Fifteen of the soldiers were ambushed by the FARC as they protected an oil pipeline under construction and four others were attacked in the south of the country Reading from a prepared statement, de la Calle said the government of President Juan Manuel Santos had announced when they began in November that there would be no ceasefire until an agreement was reached. "These conversations, as President Santos pointed out this week, are taking place in the middle of conflict. There is no ceasefire," he said. In May, after six months of negotiations facilitated by Cuba and Norway, the two sides reached an historic agreement on agricultural reform that calls for developing rural areas and providing land to the people living there. LAND OWNERSHIP FARC negotiator Andres Paris said ongoing clashes between farmers and the government in the Andean nation's volatile northeast called into question the latter's sincerity over agrarian reform. "It is worthless to talk in Havana of limiting land ownership, stopping foreign ownership, of a policy that favours the poor and national sovereignty, if the government turns what it has agreed to into empty words," Paris said. Impoverished farmers in Catatumbo have blocked roads and clashed with police in the past month to protest against the government's regular fumigation of illegal coca crops - the raw material that makes cocaine - the only means of subsistence for many Colombians. The protesters want to be able to farm coca without government hindrance, as well as substantial increases in spending on roads, health, education and job creation. Santos has sought dialogue with the protesters but things fell apart in the last few weeks when they refused to lift their roadblocks. Police said the rebels are behind the protests and have fomented the unrest, but the farmers deny that. The confrontations have resulted in the deaths of four protesters and injuries to dozens of people, including police officers who were maimed by explosives. The FARC is strong in Catatumbo, an area that borders Venezuela and where the state oil company, Ecopetrol, has operations. The FARC and the government are discussing the second item on their six-point agenda: turning the rebels from insurgents into political participants. Other unresolved issues include the drug trade, compensation for victims and implementation of any final accord. Santos initiated the peace talks last year in the belief that the FARC had been so weakened by the government's 10-year, U.S.-backed offensive that its leaders were ready to end the fighting. Three previous peace efforts have failed. The rebels have been pushed into far corners of the country, but they still have an estimated 8,000 fighters and regularly attack oil and mining operations vital to Colombia's economic growth.

SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Barbara Figueroa, President of Worker's United Center of Chile: "Everyone recognises that the battle against inequality is the great task that's pending in our country and that is also largely explained by the lack of rights that have undermined organised labour, and so today we're putting this demand on the table." 22. Pan right of people gathered for march before it got started 23. Pull out of person wearing V for Vendetta Guy Fawkes masks STORYLINE Clashes between police and demonstrators broke out during a massive union march in the Chilean capital Santiago on Thursday that was organised as part of a nationwide strike. Small groups of hooded protesters set up flaming barricades ahead of the strike, blocking morning traffic. They also threw firebombs and torched a public transit bus in the capital Santiago. Police arrested 24 people, but no injuries were reported. The Central Union of Workers, which called the nationwide strike and organised Thursday's march, condemned the early-morning violence. Thousands of Chilean workers took to the streets to demand improved labour conditions and a tax reform. Students and copper miners have joined workers chanting and waving banners in what have mostly been peaceful marches along the streets. Chile is highly regarded for its fast economic growth and solid institutions. But the world's top copper producer is also plagued by vast income inequality and an expensive education system that many consider unfair. "Everyone recognises that the battle against inequality is the great task that's pending in our country," said Barbara Figueroa, President of the Central Union of Workers. Crowd estimates for the march have not been released, but government authorities reported a low turnout by public workers. The government said that 6.4 percent of all public workers, or about 10,000 out of 161,000, joined the strike. Protests demanding education reform and a wider distribution of Chile's copper wealth have plunged President Sebastian Pinera's popularity ratings. The former airline magnate is the most unpopular leader since the end of General Augusto Pinochet's dictatorship. Education and tax reform remain key issues ahead of the 17 November presidential election.

Doodle 28 Oct 2018 - 249. ° aniversario del nacimiento de Simón Rodríguez 🎉
 
02:40
#Doodle de google, vídeo interactivo por: #DoodlesOfGoogle #SimonRodriguez El Doodle de hoy rinde homenaje a la vida y el legado de Simón Rodríguez, académico, humanista, filósofo y educador que viajó por el mundo en busca de conocimiento, construyendo escuelas y trabajando incansablemente para promover los principios que apreciaba. Nacido en Caracas, Venezuela, en este día de 1771, Rodríguez fue un estudiante dotado y precoz, profundamente inspirado por las obras de Jean-Jacques Rousseau, en particular su histórico tratado Emile, o Sobre la educación . En 1791, Rodríguez recibió su primer puesto de profesor en Caracas, y tres años más tarde presentó una crítica del sistema escolar, así como un plan para su reforma. La joven maestra propuso crear nuevas escuelas, con instructores bien entrenados y compensados ​​de manera justa e incorporando más estudiantes de todas las etnias y entornos sociales. Entre sus alumnos se encontraba Simón Bolívar, a quien también se convirtió en amigo y mentor, configurando las sensibilidades del futuro estadista conocido en toda América del Sur como El Libertador . Reunido con su estudiante como adulto, Rodríguez trabajó junto a Bolívar durante su búsqueda para crear estados independientes en Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Perú, Panamá y la República de Bolivia, siempre enfocados en la importancia de la educación como un derecho humano fundamental. Dentro de Unos años, Rodríguez huyó de Venezuela bajo un nombre falso, provocando a las poderosas élites con su inquebrantable dedicación y falta de voluntad para comprometer sus ideales. Después de establecer lo que llamó "taller-escuela" en Columbia, Rodríguez fue convocado a Perú por Bolívar. Rodríguez pronto se convirtió en su "Director de Educación Pública, Ciencias Físicas y Matemáticas y Artes", así como "Director de Minas, Agricultura y Vías Públicas". Rodríguez viajó sin descanso en busca de un lugar para aplicar sus ideas, viviendo en Perú, Chile y Ecuador. En 1828 comenzó a publicar Sociedades Americanas , subtitulado "cómo son y cómo deberían ser en los siglos venideros". El trabajo comprendió un resumen de sus ideas sobre educación, derechos humanos y ciudadanía en la práctica. Aplicando en América del Sur las audaces ideas educativas que transformaron a Europa, Rodríguez ideó métodos innovadores de educación infantil que dieron forma al futuro de su tierra natal durante los próximos siglos. ¡Feliz cumpleaños, Simón Rodríguez! ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬Inglés/English▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ Today’s Doodle honors the life and legacy of Simón Rodríguez, a scholar, humanist, philosopher, and educator who traveled the world seeking knowledge, building schools, and working tirelessly to further the principles he held dear. Born in Caracas, Venezuela on this day in 1771, Rodríguez was a gifted and precocious student, deeply inspired by the works of Jean-Jacques Rousseau, particularly his landmark treatise Emile, or On Education. In 1791 Rodríguez received his first teaching position in Caracas, and three years later presented a critique of the school system as well as a plan for its reform. The young teacher proposed creating new schools, with well-trained and fairly compensated instructors and incorporating more students of all ethnicities and social backgrounds. Among his students was Simón Bolívar, to whom he became a friend and mentor as well, shaping the sensibilities of the future statesman known throughout South America as El Libertador. Reunited with his student as an adult, Rodríguez worked alongside Bolívar during his quest to create independent states in Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Panama, and the Republic of Bolivia, always focused on the importance of education as a fundamental human right.Within a few years, Rodríguez fled from Venezuela under an assumed name, having provoked the powerful elites with his unwavering dedication and unwillingness to compromise his ideals. After setting up a what he called a “workshop-school” in Columbia, Rodríguez was summoned to Peru by Bolívar. Rodríguez soon became its “Director for Public Education, Physical and Mathematical Sciences and Arts" as well as "Director of Mines, Agriculture and Public Roads.” Rodríguez traveled restlessly in search of a place to apply his ideas, living in Peru, Chile, and Ecuador. In 1828 he began publishing Sociedades Americanas, subtitled “how they are and how they should be in the centuries to come.” The work comprised a summary of his ideas about on education, human rights, and citizenship in practice. Applying in South America the bold educational ideas that transformed Europe, Rodríguez devised innovative methods of childhood education that shaped the future of his homeland for centuries to come. Happy Birthday, Simón Rodríguez!

Extractive Industries in LATAM: Promises and Dilemmas of Oil and Mining Industries
 
01:23:34
For more on this event, visit: http://bit.ly/2zBkQ3d For more on the Georgetown Latin America Initiative: https://latinamerica.georgetown.edu October 27, 2017 | Extractive industries are essential components of the economies of many countries in the region. When projects are well implemented, preserve the rights of affected people and its benefits are well managed, extractive industries can contribute to sustainable development and economic opportunities. However, the impact of extractive industries can also represent a serious challenge to the people impacted negatively by their activities. In recent decades, the importance of extractives industries in Latin America and the Caribbean has increased, with countries seeking to provide a stable investment climate, diminishing legal and regulatory framework, and limiting taxes on private companies. This has accelerated rates of economic growth but it has also been accompanied by significant levels of corruption, social conflict and environmental damage, in some cases undermining democracy and the human rights of many people in the region. How can extractive industries and government regulation balance local expectations with national development plans and calibrate industry regulations and investment promotion? How can stakeholders (policymakers at all levels, civil society, multinational corporations) maximize the benefits of extracting resources, while minimizing the risks of corruption, resource-curse ills, violation of human rights and environmental degradation? How can a favorable investment/business environment be created without sacrificing long term national interests, or jeopardizing local goals and rights? This conference, organized by the different Latin American students’ organizations at Georgetown University and sponsored by Georgetown University’s Latin American Initiative, aims to bring together researchers, practitioners and community leaders from throughout the region that can help us think through this difficult yet poignant questions. Hence, taking the lead from the Latin American Studies Association’s call for a “dialogues of knowledge”, the conference aims to include the voices of indigenous, afro-descendants and other popular sectors in the discussion.

Sweden's Supreme Court Upholds Assange Detention Order
 
00:43
Sweden's Supreme Court said on Monday it rejected an appeal by WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange to revoke a detention order over allegations of sexual assault. The 43-year-old Australian has been stuck inside Ecuador's London embassy since June 2012 to avoid a British extradition to Sweden, which wants to question him on allegations of sexual assault, which he denies. The court said in a statement that the prosecutors' decision to question Assange in London supported the decision to uphold the detention order. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/worldNews/~3/ovojkJJ67O0/story01.htm http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by Wochit using http://creator.wochit.com

PERU: LIMA: STRIKING PROTESTERS CLASH WITH POLICE
 
01:57
Natural Sound Protesters stoned buses and burned tyres in the streets of Peru's capital in the first national strike against President Alberto Fujimori since he took power nearly a decade ago. Soldiers with automatic weapons guarded public buildings and armoured troop carriers patrolled streets. The protest turned ugly when police fired tear gas at protesters in downtown Lima, near the headquarters of the populist Aprista Party of former President Alan Garcia. For the first time since he took office nearly a decade ago, Fujimori faced a powerful national strike organised by leftist-led unions. In downtown Lima, angry protesters burnt tyres and taunted riot police who struggled to control the clouds of smoke from burning tyres. The strike was supported across the board by business organisations and opposition parties - having been called by the General Confederation of Peruvian Workers (C-G-T-P). Peruvian President Fujimori had deployed soldiers and police to keep order in industrial areas and on roads as many transport, health, education and construction workers throughout Peru obeyed the strike call. Many in the streets were rallying against Fujimori's economic policies and the possibility that he might run for a third term. But the government had been ready and prepared for violence by ordering 20-thousand policemen into the streets. It had also put the armed forces on alert for possible violence. But apart from the violent scenes near the headquarters of the populist Aprista Party of former President Alan Garcia - the strike had for the most part taken place calmly. In central Lima, thousands marched in support of Peru's unions which have been weakened by anti-labour legislation under Fujimori. With the government's economic reforms doing little to generate jobs or reduce poverty, organised labour has recently gained renewed energy. The populist crowds were testament to their growing power. When Fujimori took office in 1990, he inherited an economy coping with hyperinflation a staggering 7-thousand percent. His free-market policies tamed the inflation. And his success in putting down the long-running revolt by the Maoist Shining Path rebels boosted consumer confidence and encouraged investment from abroad. As a result, Peru's economy grew by a scorching 32 percent between 1993 and 1996. But the policies have had a cost. Privatisation of state industries has left tens of thousands of people unemployed. Much of the outside investment pouring into Peru has gone into activities such as mining and oil, which rely heavily on technology and do not generate large numbers of jobs. In addition, a two-year recession -- exacerbated by massive damage done by the El Nino weather phenomenon -- has hit retailers and manufacturers hard, forcing more layoffs. According to private-sector surveys, more than 50 percent of the workforce now works in the informal economy. Fujimori has not said if he plans to run for a second re-election in April 2000. For the most part he has largely failed to improve living standards in one of the South America's poorest countries.

Senior Loeb Scholar lecture: David Harvey
 
01:48:04
3/28/16 It is David Harvey’s contention that the production of space, especially the distribution and organization of the territory, constitutes a principal aspect of capitalist economies. His writings on this theme have contributed to the ongoing political debate on globalization and on the different spatial strategies associated to global processes. A foundation of Harvey’s intellectual project is his “close reading” and interpretation of Karl Marx’s Capital, which he has taught and read for decades and documented in his Companion to Marx’s Capital (2010). But Harvey’s work is distinguished by the way he has brought Marxism together with geography with productive results for each discipline. For instance, he has approached the overaccumulation of capital by way of its reflection in spatial expansion in order to demonstrate its causative role. His book Limits to Capital (1982), which traces this argument, is a mainstay of the contemporary understanding of capitalism’s perennial economic crises (among others are Ernest Mandel’s Late Capitalism (1972), Giovanni Arrighi’s Long 20th Century (1994) and Robert Brenner’s Economics of Global Turbulence (2006)). Among other ideas, Harvey is known for his critical interpretation of the ideas of Henri Lefebvre and his own formulation of the “right to the city.” His book Spaces of Hope (2000) explores a role for architecture in bridging between the human body and the uneven development that is characteristic of globalization. Asked to single out a favorite of Harvey’s books, Dean Mohsen Mostafavi refers to Harvey’s book Social Justice and the City (1973) as “an important articulation of the relationship between the city as a physical artifact and its social consequences. His writings have provided an acute analysis of our society and provide an indispensable framework for new forms of spatial imagination." David Harvey, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology & Geography at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY), is the 2015–2016 Senior Loeb Scholar.

Bolivian Music-Salar Uyuni  Part 6
 
02:54
Welcome to my travelchannel.On my channel you can find almost 1000 films of more than 70 countries. See the playlist on my youtube channel.Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/user/nurettinodunya/playlists Juan Evo Morales Ayma (born October 26, 1959), popularly known as Evo, is a Bolivian politician and cocalero activist who has served as President of Bolivia since 2006. Widely regarded as the country's first president to come from the indigenous population,his administration has focused on the implementation of leftist policies, poverty reduction, and combating the influence of the United States and multinational corporations in Bolivia. A democratic socialist, he is the head of the Movement for Socialism (MAS) party. Bolivia officially known as the Plurinational State of Bolivia (Spanish: Estado Plurinacional de Bolivia), is a landlocked country located in western-central South America. It is bordered to the north and east by Brazil, to the southeast by Paraguay, to the south by Argentina, to the southwest by Chile, and to the northwest by Peru. One-third of the country is the Andean mountain range, with one of its largest cities and principal economic centers located in the Altiplano. Before Spanish colonization, the Andean region of Bolivia was part of the Inca Empire, while the northern and eastern lowlands were inhabited by independent tribes. Spanish conquistadors arriving from Cuzco and Asunción took control of the region in the 16th century. During the Spanish colonial period Bolivia was administered by the Royal Audiencia of Charcas. Spain built its empire in great part upon the silver that was extracted from Bolivia's mines. After the first call for independence in 1809, 16 years of war followed before the establishment of the Republic, named for Simón Bolívar, on 6 August 1825. Since independence, Bolivia has endured periods of political and economic instability, including the loss of various peripheral territories to its neighbors, such as Acre and parts of the Gran Chaco. It has been landlocked since the annexation of its Pacific coast territory by Chile following the War of the Pacific (1879–84), but agreements with neighbouring countries have granted it indirect access to the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. The country's population, estimated at 10 million, is multiethnic, including Amerindians, Mestizos, Europeans, Asians and Africans. The racial and social segregation that arose from Spanish colonialism has continued to the modern era. Spanish is the official and predominant language, although 36 indigenous languages also have official status, of which the most commonly spoken are Guarani, Aymara and Quechua languages. Modern Bolivia is constitutionally a democratic republic, divided into nine departments. Its geography varies from the peaks of the Andes in the West, to the Eastern Lowlands, situated within the Amazon Basin. It is a developing country, with a medium ranking in the Human Development Index and a poverty level of 53 percent. Its main economic activities include agriculture, forestry, fishing, mining, and manufacturing goods such as textiles, clothing, refined metals, and refined petroleum. Bolivia is very wealthy in minerals, especially tin. The music of Bolivia has a long history. Out of all the Andean countries, Bolivia remains perhaps the most culturally linked to the indigenous peoples. Like most of its neighbors, Bolivia was long dominated by Spain and its attendant culture. Even after independence, Bolivian music was largely based on European forms. In 1952, a revolution established nationalistic reforms which included cultural and political awareness of the Aymara and Quechua natives. Intellectuals in the country began wearing ponchos and otherwise associating themselves with native cultures, and the new government promoted native folklore by, among other methods, establishing a folklore department in the Bolivian Ministry of Education.Wikipedia
