Swiss peaks and slippery slopes 2.2.2010 The Economist
Morality was on the menu at this year's Davos summit BANKER-BASHING and worries about the inability of the world’s systems of governance to tackle increasingly pressing global problems were the underlying themes of the annual World Economic Forum (WEF), held last week in Davos. The best attempt at setting a more positive agenda for reform, albeit delivered in a speech that struck many in the audience as eccentric, came from Nicolas Sarkozy, the French president, who called for a more “moral” form of capitalism. While everybody seemed to agree with that broad goal, there was little agreement on how to get there. Davos is usually a time for contrarian thinking by the business leaders, politicians, academics and social ...

A friend in deed 2.2.2010 Telegraph: Opinion
Standing on the rubble of the United Nations headquarters building in Port-au-Prince 10 days ago, Shashi Tharoor removed a four-year-old stain on Indian diplomacy. The first Indian minister to ever set foot in Haiti, he told its president, René Garcia Préval, that New Delhi had not merely pledged five million dollars for relief after the devastating earthquake in one of the poorest countries of the world: it had already deposited the cash in the UN's account in New York so that there was no delay in reaching help to those who needed it most in Haiti. For a change, there was little red tape when it came to responding to this natural disaster.

If the law would allow it, Sir 1.2.2010 Telegraph: Opinion
The controversy over the legalization of prostitution has been raging in India for quite some time now, and there are parties lined up in favour of and against the scrapping of the Immoral Traffic (Prevention) Act (1956) or Pita, as it is popularly known. Pita is a strange law. While it does not say that prostitution per se is illegal, it penalizes attendant activities such as pimping, trafficking, soliciting or brothel-keeping. In other words, it penalizes anyone living off the income of prostitutes.

Strange games of hide and seek 1.2.2010 Telegraph: Opinion
Sex work suffers from a peculiar paradox of visibility. Whenever people speak of it, they think of women ' there are men too ' offering sexual services in a vacuum. The clients are a faceless mass, not as visible as they would be as human beings engaged in the daylight transactions of everyday life. Sex workers become invisible in these same daylight spaces: to enter them, even to admit their children to school, their identities must be erased or changed. Here they do not exist but their clients do, although 'sex workers' client' is not part of the latter's wide range of social identities.

Agriculture: Wisdom of the Uncivilized Crowds 1.2.2010 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
This is a guest post by Suraj Kumar, who posts under the name sunson . He is a software engineer living in Bangalore, India. This is a link to his blog . Picture this: A remote Indian village in the Ganges delta a few hundred years ago. The farmer starts his day by letting his flock of ducks into his irrigated fields. The water from the river brings with it, besides nutrients and alluvium, some unwanted (for the crops) pests too. But that is not a problem--the ducks will keep the pests in control. Not only that, they will turn those pests into manure and drop it right inside the pool of collected water to be anaerobically decomposed under the water. Maybe the farmer doesn't realize it and thinks the Sun god and Nature goddesses are helping ...

Experts on the chances of a global climate deal working in Mexico in 2010 1.2.2010 Guardian: Environment
Politicians, climate negotiators, scientists and NGO experts on the outlook for a global climate change deal Chances of Copenhagen 'rematch' unlikely, say experts With the rancour of the failed Copenhagen climate talks still fresh, the election of Scott Brown leaving President Obama without a super-majority in the Senate and doubts over the reputation of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the chances of a global climate deal look further away than ever. The Guardian asked 39 politicians, climate negotiators, scientists and representatives of NGOs whether they thought a global deal was likely in 2010. Many would not speak on the record, but this is what the rest had to say. Spokesperson for low-carbon ...
