Hodges' Model: Welcome to the QUAD

When in a 'fix' whether public health, climate change, or a student seeking tools for lifelong learning - you need a toolkit. Hodges' model is no panacea, but makes for a fascinating presentation or workshop. Learn here about a framework that can help integrate HEALTH and SOCIAL CARE, TECH and EDUCATION, fostering reflection and critical thinking. The model is situated and that is ANY situation or context. Always pleased to connect - email: h2cmng @ yahoo.co.uk Welcome to the QUAD ...

Michel Serres in "A planetary art beyond the human"

"In the mid- 1990s, Michel Serres was already registering the devastating impact of ‘dense tectonic plates of humanity’ on a hitherto ‘mute world’.1 Our excesses, he writes, have awoken the ‘mute, passive, obscure things’ around us that had ‘obediently slumbered’, but will now respond to us with violence.2 In such discourse we recognize the now common tropes of thresholds and tipping points, often deployed by climate scientists and echoed by scholars who assert that humans are now truly ‘geological agents’ in their impact on the planet.3 ...

... Getting to grips with the consequences of human activity for the Earth’s systems is unarguably an essential step in forging policies to mitigate the damage. But in the political urgency that shapes many debates about climate change, there is a risk, as Dipesh Chakrabarty points out, that ‘humans emerge as the subject of the drama of the Anthropocene’ while geological time fades from view.4 An emphasis on human agency may simply lead us full circle, back to the anthropocentric conception of a docile Earth made up of inert matter, only stirred by our own excesses, and waiting to be saved or destroyed by its human inhabitants." p.31.

c/o WHO: Opportunity for recent graduates for LDCs

Appealing to the librarian network to share this great WHO opportunity for recent graduates for LDCs

Dear Colleagues,

This may seem like an odd request but I am counting on you as the global health community who sometimes are the world’s best knowledge connectors. As many of you work with recent graduates who come from varied backgrounds, I would like to make you aware of the WHO’s young professionals (YPs) programme for young professionals (YPs) from Least Developed Countries (LDCs) https://www.un.org/development/desa/dpad/wp-content/uploads/sites/45/publication/ldc_list.pdf which aims to engage them in WHO’s work and build their capacity in key public health areas of particular relevance for their countries.

The vacancies of the first cohort are currently open for application until 6 December 2021. The vacancies can be found here:

https://careers.who.int/careersection/ex/jobsearch.ftl (please type “YPP” in the key word search to take you directly to the vacancies)

If you know someone who is 35 years old or younger and comes from a Least Developed Country, please ask them to check out WHO’s Young Professionals Programme! During your career, you may have come across some exceptional students from LDC locations who you feel worthy of an opportunity to make a big impact in the global health arena. If you know of anyone, please share this opportunity with them.

I have done this in the past and my colleagues in WHO HR saw star candidates results from the public health networking that got this message out to ideal candidates and they would like to see that success again. For some of you I know this will be a golden opportunity.

If you have any concerns about this posting, please let me know. For potential candidates, please direct them to visit the WHO website above.

Many Many Thanks to you all.

SUPPLY

competition

In demand and supply also consider this within the sociological and interpersonal domains in the context of COVID? 

If people 'behave' themselves*, i.e. do not 'raid' the shelves there will (should) be sufficient supply for all. 

In political terms, what happens when a government raises the prospect (the dichotomy) of supply chain problems and potential shortages?

The 4Ps are relevant here:

intra- interpersonal - PURPOSES

sciences - PROCESS (mechanistic)

sociology - PRACTICE (gone awry)

political - POLICY (discipline in communications)

*UK context - acknowledging the global audience.
