Roughly half of world comprises four by 1 billion: girls, young women. mothers, grandmoms- HYPOTHESIS 2020s economistamerica.com needs now to celebrate freedom of young metoo lives matter. Try to stay out of the way of Men's supreme triad Donald , Vladamir, Yong. Maths at Codesmeta.com.Dad, The Economist's Norman Macrae would have been 100 in 2023 (see below Glasgow celebration MES). Da'ds first trip to USA: 1951 year secondemnt by The Economist. He met Von Neumann: they agreed greatest sccopp journalists would ever mediate - what GOOD will peoples do with 100 times more tech every decade : 1930s to 2020s. GOD measnt a lot to both men- Von Neumann had less than 6 years left to deliver good tech legacy from the Goats of maths (including Einstein, Turing); these immigramnts had aminly been forced to work on the bad of nucleasr weapons; my dad had spent his last dayas as a teen in bomber command naviagting airplanes our of Burma; as well as survival his good fortune mapsd of the old woirld's tri-contiment in his head; notably the indo pacific whose coastline three quarters of humans depended on for world trade but which particularly britain had enginee4rd to enrich the west and trap asians in poverty- still with 100 times more good tech to go round - could everyone win-win; for example webbing life critical knowhow locally multiplies value in use unlike consuming up things. HOW DID DAD FOLLOW UP Neuman's Gift. He chered on twin AI Labs facing pacific out of stanford (eg see 10th birthday celebration of place branded silicon valley) and facing atlantic out of MIT. His bio of V neuman has been published in American and japanese. He wrote over 2000 anonymous leaders for The Economist and aged 39 was permitted one signed survey a year. You can see ost of tehse at tecahforsdgs.com- what did he write about? In the 1960s countries whose peoples had worried him most -starting with the Jpanese he had bomber consider Jpana 1962 (Russia 1963, latin Am 1964 , Algeria & S SAfrica; he concluded 1960s interviwing how dismally different Nixon's economit admin had been from jfk - the least national leader to celebartae with youyth 100 times more (moon race, mapping worldwide interdependence).Ironically Neumann's computational gift was sperading a macroeconomic numbers man whose systems compounded opposite of sustainability. Rather than argue with american academai- dad rebranded his purpose as future historian and entrepreneurial revolutionary. Still the main question search through 70s and up to 83 wgat good 100 times more.

worlds longest railway yiwu china to madrid spain - about one third of earth's belt (circumference)
continent landmass over two thirs of earths people
over half of world's people live on 10% of land with radius of 3000 miles from beijing

  1. Asia: 4.41 billion   - eurasia 5.15 billion
  2. Africa: 1,22 billion; Europe: o.75 billion
  3. North America: 0,575 (includes Central America and Caribbean)
  4. South America: 0.42 billion   Australia: 0.23 billion Antarctica: No permanent 
example: why goal 2 food security for all  communities depends not just on belt road but on how everyone partners round water intelligence and good food imports into china as 750 million middle class become wisest consumers
Part [B7] ~ Water Use ~ Asia Generally ~
Dwindling groundwater supplies are threatening drinking water and crop production across Asia. Undeveloped arable land, meanwhile, is in short supply. As a result, Asian countries will have to import more food or improve irrigation methods, the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and International Water Management Institute (IWMI) concluded in a report [PDF] released today. "Revitalizing Asia's Irrigation," IWMI (International Water Management Institute) http://www.iwmi.cigar.org/Publications/Other/PDF/Revitalizing%20Asia%27s%20Irrigation.pdf by Aditi Mukherji, Thierry Facon et al. (2009)
Asia's irrigation systems account for 70% of the world's total irrigated land. About 5 billion people are projected to live in Asia by 2050. With demand for meat products on the rise, experts estimate that the region must double its supplies of food and animal feed crops during the next 50 years to feed an additional 1.5 billion people. If population projections are borne out, food demands by 2050 would require South Asia to irrigate 30% more harvested land. These new farms would demand 57% more water unless water efficiency improves. In East Asia, farmers would need to increase the amount of irrigated farmland by 47%, at the cost of a 70% increase in water use, the above-mentioned study said. In Asia, particularly in South Asia (e.g. India), the area of land irrigated by large-scale surface irrigation has declined since the early 1990s due largely to poorly maintained infrastructure, the report said (09B1). Comments: "Surface irrigation" probably refers to irrigation systems that use surface water instead of groundwater irrigation.
