Software engineer-turned farmer Binay Kumar have adopted progressive farming techniques. YoutubeAs we celebrate Earth Day 2019 on Monday, April 22, meet a software engineer-turned-farmer, Binay Kumar, who is following progressive farming techniques in this modern era. Kumar, a trainer in permaculture and other advanced non-invasive farming practices, is teaching Bangaloreans how to grow their own food within their spaces and the urgent need for it.”When you tie a string to your plastic garbage bag and put it outside, where do you think they go? To the moon? NO! They remain on the Earth,” Kumar said. When Kumar extolled an unsuspecting crowd in a bus to examine their actions, to examine the importance of farmer, to go back to roots, and how as a generation we Indians are making sure that the problem of food security remains and actually grows, and the dire consequences of our actions on the environment, it hit people right in the conscience. The result was 13 lakh views and counting. But what is his story and who is this man on the bus?Kumar, who could not speak English until he joined work as a software professional in Bengaluru, has come a long way. Today, he goes around speaking at important fora, gets invited at thought leadership conferences, meeting experts, academicians and field workers who are working to establish sustainable agricultural practices, ensuring food security and creating awareness about environment-friendly ways of living.He has to his credit, the accomplishment and satisfaction of turning some of the most difficult pieces of land where nothing grew for over 15 years into lush green vegetation, thanks to his Permaculture training. He holds workshops each week in teaching people to grow now just green cover within their homes but also grow their own food in the simplest ways and in the shortest time. His workshops have become popular by word of mouth and run houseful, so much so that, he has been compelled to move his once a month workshops to once a week. His sharing is personal and thought-provoking to many and it has forced many to make a conscious shift.A businessman with about 90 acres of land near Hosur, inspired by his workshop, has turned to sustainable agriculture, giving up chemical farming and use of plastic in his land. He has started milk production with a 5,000 litter capacity chiller. He sells the milk in recyclable glass bottles instead of plastic.On the occasion of 2019 Earth Day, do let us know if you would like to meet or interact with Binay Kumar, ‘the man on the bus’ fame.

Advertisement Brahima Sanou, The director of Telecommunication Development Bureau (DBT) at the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), has urged East African states to treat broadband connectivity not as something that is desirable, but a must-have. He was speaking at the first East African ICT conference on broadband access at Munyonyo. Jointly organized by the Uganda Communications Commission (UCC), the ministry of ICT and the East African Communications Organization (EACO), the conference attracted over 250 delegates from the region.“I think Africa can develop a smart sustainable model of a limitless Information and Communication Technology market, thanks to the coming of tablets, smart phones and the cloud, But to do this effectively, East African governments need to engage the private sector to strengthen broadband infrastructure and avail it to the last person down in the village.” Sanou said.East Africa commissioned a 10,625-mile Seacom broadband cable at Mombasa in 2009 but internet access prices have remained very high, due to lack of state investment. One 2011 survey put Uganda’s lowest cost of monthly access to broadband at an average $120, compared to $40 in Kenya and $10 in China. – Advertisement – Sanou says this cost can be cut if regional states can develop neutralized broadband connectivity by bringing resources together and putting up comprehensive infrastructure where all telecom providers can be subscribers. Other officials, including UCC’s executive Director Godfrey Mutabazi, urged the region’s governments to urgently review the existing ICT policies, strengthen incentives to the private sector and promote innovation.Credit: The Observer

Gensler calls it a “real how-to course.” Mainly, students will focus on blockchain applications in the financial industry. The goal is to get them to think creatively about blockchain application and devise their own original blockchain opportunities.The finishing touches of the syllabus are still being put together, but Gensler has already secured a few exceptional guest speakers to come in and talk, including crypto expert Christian Catalini and Jeff Sprecher, CEO of Intercontinental Exchange and Chairman of the New York Stock Exchange.This article has been edited and republished with permissions from our sister site, Clear Admit. A decade ago, only a few people knew what blockchain was. Now, blockchain is a practical part of the financial sector with tremendous potential for transformation. That’s why this fall, MIT’s Gary Gensler, a Senior Lecturer and Senior Advisor with the MIT Media Lab, will teach a new course entitled “Blockchain and Money.”The new course at MIT Sloan will show students how to use blockchain technology, covering fundamentals such as distributed ledgers and smart contacts. In addition, the course will offer real-world examples that cover global issues including regulatory concerns.“This technology has real potential as a catalyst for change in the world of finance and the broader economy,” Gensler said in a recent MIT news story. “I view the course as one piece of the broader ecosystem at MIT where people can explore blockchain technology and its real-life possibilities.” About the Blockchain and Money CourseThe 12-week “Blockchain and Money” course will be valuable not only for entrepreneurs interested in initial coin offerings, but also for students who are just curious about the intricacies of blockchain.
