Books and pens are our most dangerous weapons
UNESCO celebrates World Book and Copyright Day with an unfortunate irony. Yes, ideas can be more powerful than violence (though ideas are also often a cause of violence). Yet promoting any weapon is regrettable and the analogy is clumsy, as befits the child UNESCO quotes.
The irony also hangs heavily: copyright has become a weapon wielded not so much by authors, but frequently by publishers - long after an author's death.
Copyright reform is well overdue and books are under increasing threat as a viable publishing medium. Those two points are interdependent. This day is a good reminder.

Unfortunately, I can't be there :=(   I do believe, though, that Youth, as from previous generations, is here to carry on, take over, implement the new . . . and we must pay attention.

All the best, and thanks to +Scott McQuade

TURN THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN
Time to reassess your notion of the global map?
Some sensible ideas can emerge from comedy moments.

Today is World Health Day and this year, the World Health Organization (WHO) is raising awareness about vector-borne diseases such as malaria and neglected tropical diseases. We are examining how these diseases and the efforts to combat them are linked to efforts to end HIV and AIDS worldwide in our newest HIV 101 blog. #WorldHealthDay #Just1Bite

A call for graphic health warning pictures on cigarette packets in China, backed by a new WHO report.
 
好消息 or Good news! WHO’s China Office is now on Weibo: http://www.weibo.com/whoinchina

New report launched today: Large, graphic health warnings on tobacco packaging in China would increase awareness about the harms of smoking and help cut smoking rates. 

“A picture is worth a thousand words. In China a picture could be worth a thousand lives. It is time for China to kick its tobacco habit,” says Dr. Bernard Schwartländer, WHO Representative in China. Share if you agree!

90% of corporate (brand) media content is "crap"
UK ITV chief Simon Daglish says most consumers "don't give a stuff" about big brands that want to be programme makers.
Will  this content strategists pause for thought? Will they take up his challenge to produce great content?
Simon Daglish tells big brands that want to become programme makers that most consumers 'don't give a stuff' about them

Story
Tagline
Scott McQuade is a communicator & marketer working in global development and politics
Introduction
My name is Scott McQuade and I advocate for greater public knowledge and political commitment to remedy life's ills. 

I communicate about HIV and AIDS evidence and policy at UNAIDS, the Joint UN Programme on HIV and AIDS. My primary focus therefore ranges from sexual and reproductive health, gender and human rights, to science, policies and behaviour relevant to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. 

As a career communicator, trained marketer and former company director, I have led successful public information and lobbying campaigns, coached teams and senior executives, published award-winning documents, written widely-quoted speeches and stories and launched new public companies. I am inspired by the many people and institutions active in this rapidly evolving media environment, which offers us novel ways to relate and inspire.

Any views I express here are strictly my own. For more information, see: about.me/scott.mcquade. For more HIV & AIDS content, see my flipboard: http://flip.it/MVPO3
