Phi Beta Iota: A useful step. However, at least as critical is evaluating the sources and methods used or not used by “think tanks.” Most — such as the Brookings Institute — do not use citation analytics and do not do substantive foreign language research. “Multidisciplinary” is not a term in vogue among these largely pedestrian entities.

Sepp Hasslberger: Kenya Outs United Nations & World Health Organization for a Covert Eugenics Operation to Sterlize Millions of Women via Tetanus Vaccine
The United Nations has a population control policy. Are vaccines used in an underhand way to forward a secret program of pharmaceutical sterilisation?
This WHO campaign is not about eradicating neonatal tetanus but a well-coordinated forceful population control mass sterilization exercise using a proven fertility regulating vaccine.’ Kenya’s Catholic bishops are charging two United Nations organizations with sterilizing millions of girls and women under cover of an anti-tetanus inoculation program sponsored by the Kenyan government. According to a statement released Tuesday by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, the organization has found an antigen that causes miscarriages in a vaccine being administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Priests throughout Kenya reportedly are advising their congregations to refuse the vaccine.
The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has just published an important, must-read report on the use of social media for disaster response. As noted by OCHA, this document was inspired by conversations with my team and I at QCRI. We jointly recognize that innovation in humanitarian technology is not enough. What is needed—and often lacking—is innovation in policymaking. Only then can humanitarian technology have widespread impact. This new think piece by OCHA seeks to catalyze enlightened policymaking.
