As Americans go to the polls on election day, they should keep in mind that the United States is ranked the 101st most peaceful country in the world.

The Global Peace Index brings to light the weaknesses in our global system in creating more sustainable peace, but quantifying peace is not always easy or totally accurate.

In Hong Kong, social media has been less about spurring people to action, and more about telling the real story.

Although social media may have been credited with helping to fuel the Arab Spring by making people aware that they were not alone in their views, in the open society of Hong Kong, the medium has been less about spurring people to action, and more about telling the real story.

Following violence in Ottowa last week, should we expect to see more lone wolf terror attacks? According to Jeffrey Simon, author of Lone Wolf Terrorism: Understanding the Growing Threat, we absolutely should.

#Ottowa #terror #LoneWolf
Of all the types of terror attacks, we have the fewest resources for dealing with lone wolves—the most creative and dangerous of terrorists.

"Everyone should have a voice in the global conversation about the future of our planet," said +Helen Clark. That mindset has taken the Social Good Summit from a New York-based gathering to a conversation that reaches around the world through the theme #2030Now . What kind of world do you want to create? http://bit.ly/Download-to-Upload-Social-Good

"Our generation did not succeed in understanding the challenges and building bridges. There’s more conflict today than before, and there’s, unfortunately, more conflict on the horizon unless we’re able to bring young leaders the experience that empowers them to play a positive role in turning challenges into opportunities."

+Diplomatic Courier sat down with Shafik Gabr, Chairman of the ARTOC Group, to discuss his quest to enhance understanding and cooperation amongst young leaders in the Arab World and the West: http://bit.ly/1ynYCHA
