I hope that a World Association of Long-term Scientists and Thinkers will soon be created. The preparatory work has been done by Erika Erdmann and Professor Jean-Claude Leonide in their world survey of possible interested scientists (see idea 526). The world needs urgently such an association.

I often think of Sir John Templeton and Peter Stewart, the founders of World Thanksgiving Square in Dallas. How right they are: there should be a World Thanksgiving Day.

I obtained to have the year 2000 declared World Thanksgiving Year by the UN General Assembly.

But no one is laughing at him anymore, as the sanitary napkin-making machine he went on to create is transforming the lives of rural women across India. Right now, 88% of women in India resort to using dirty rags, newspapers, dried leaves, and even ashes during their period. Perhaps most amazing of all? Muruganantham is a high school dropout. [More]
