MooPig's Goal: "We adopt every body else's MDG's ... Millenium Development Goals... "
Bill Gates 2013 Annual Letter: " in the past year I have been struck again and again by how important measurement is to improving the human condition. You can achieve amazing progress if you set a clear goal and find a measure that will drive progress toward that goal-in a feedback loop similar to the one Rosen describes. This may seem pretty basic, but it is amazing to me how often it is not done and how hard it is to get right."

I think Bill and Melinda Gates are the new Jesse Jacksons of Global Business. They are going to get you to pay for vaccination of their young'un's and do it by 2015. Good or bad, it will be the way of Gate's.
I have been trying to read through this "Annual Letter" all morning... I read a bit ... then I get really tic'd off ... and asking myself "why am I so mad."
William Henry "Bill" Gates III (born October 28, 1955) is an American programmer, inventor, business magnate and philanthropist. It is the same year I was born, 1955. And "BLIMEY" ... blaaahhh blaaaah sic blah!
From Gate's Annual Letter:
"...We're also not on track to meet one of the most critical goals-reducing the number of children who die under the age of five by two-thirds. We've made substantial progress. The number of children who die has declined from nearly 12 million in 1990 to 6.9 million in 2011. While that means 14,000 fewer children around the world are dying every day than in 1990, we won't reach the two-thirds target by 2015...."Me and my wife spend all our time day in and day out trying to keep our six kids alive. What is the deal with Gates going to Ethiopia and gathering information on infant death? Hunh? Scooby Doo could do that without spending a billion, plus or minus. I am afraid we have giant morons from America going in all sorts of directions and creating mass confusion.
It is like this in my mind: The philanthropist leaning elite go out into the world, see some mess somewhere, and over-state the obvious. Sure we need to end poverty, female abuse, and child/infant mortality. But as the model for accomplishing this comes about we find nations saying: "We are in on these MDG's" while they haven't a penny in their coffers. So, you guessed it, all the funds come from the USA.
From the Gate's Annual Letter is this bit:
" ...I remember the disturbing images from Ethiopia of the 1980s when more than one million people died in a famine that swept through the Horn of Africa. It was a tragedy brought to the world’s attention by the 1985 Live Aid concert and part of a long period of war, political unrest, and instability for Ethiopians. Their country ranked near the bottom on nearly every key health indicator, including child mortality. ibid.) ... "And ...
" ... When Ethiopia signed on to the MDGs in 2000, the country put hard numbers on its health ambitions. The concrete MDG goal of reducing child mortality by two-thirds created a clear target for success or failure. Ethiopia's commitment to the MDGs attracted unprecedented amounts of donor money to help improve its primary health care services. (ibid.)... "Read this please as " ...Unprecedented amounts of donor money ... from the USA. ..."
The MDG's we speak of are the goals that the UN proposed in 2000, to be achieved by nations by the year 2015. You all have had some introduction to that over the years. Like all the other stuff the UN does, most everyone thought these MDG's would be filed away and forgotten. "Not so," says the letter writer.
" ... Government organizations assist in achieving those goals, among them are the United Nations Millennium Campaign, the Millennium Promise Alliance, Inc., the Global Poverty Project, the Micah Challenge, The Youth in Action EU Programme, "Cartoons in Action" video project, and the 8 Visions of Hope global art project. (wiki LINK) ... ""Hey, Guys, I still don't feel a sense of achievement! I mean, I don't feel a warm fuzzy about those MDG's."
" ... "We have 1,000 days to reach our Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Now is the time to finish the job by accelerating progress," United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on the margins of the African Union Summit. Important successes have been observed in education and health targets, however, millions remain affected by poverty. In his address to Heads of State and Governments at the summit, the Secretary-General noted that success with accelerating the MDGs, "will depend on ownership by governments and civil society."

" ... 783 million people don’t have access to clean, relatively safe, water and 2.5 billion people don’t have sanitation. "And this is the main reason why more than 3,000 children die every day under the age of five, because of diarrhea, dysentery, dehydration and cholera," Eliasson added. (UN Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson. 2010) ... "So, reader, you must think I am some kind of monster for not laying down a path of praise for the Gates and United Nations' dudes and dudettes. If you wish, you may make that assumption. I just really wish some of these mega-maniacs would lay down their collective egos and go out in the field, like Jimmy Carter does, and actually do something; like work with their own hands.
Here is what the web page for World Health Organization, WHO, says:
" ... The United Nations Millennium Development Goals are eight goals that all 191 UN member states have agreed to try to achieve by the year 2015. The United Nations Millennium Declaration, signed in September 2000 commits world leaders to combat poverty, hunger, disease, illiteracy, environmental degradation, and discrimination against women. The MDGs are derived from this Declaration, and all have specific targets and indicators. (© WHO 2013. LINK) ... "Well, as we said, we at MooPig Enterprises adopt these MDG's along with all the high-minded global leaders and all their interns.
“There is a strong likelihood of Nigeria missing some of the MDGs due to various developmental challenges. It is important to understand the game- changing dynamics that other countries have adopted to transform their economies.Yeah, good luck with getting your Bankers' Committee to agree on that one... what is the return on poverty?
“Africa requires the right leadership, planning and incentives to drive required economic growth and development; the Bankers’ Committee is adequately placed to shape this growth. Political will and governance are critical requirements for entrepreneurial development and also drive economic growth.” (Entries posted by Editor. December 11, 2012. LINK) ... "
