peace through commerce: route MOB

"And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."
Book of Revelation

It's Stanford again: Cisco Chairman and chief executive officer John Chambers met with Her Highness Sheikha Mozah Bint Nasser Al Missned today to announce that the company would establish a research and technology base at Qatar Science & Technology Park (QSTP).

Cisco plans to invest approximately $40 million in its centre at QSTP over the next three years. As part of this plan Cisco will collaborate with Qatar Foundation on a series of projects to help enable QSTP's vision of transforming Qatar into a knowledge-based economy, while facilitating youth employment across the country.

The announcement follows Cisco's recent official recognition as one of the first global strategic technology providers for Qatar's newly launched Youth Employment Initiative, announced by Sheikha Moza

at the UN Alliance for Civilization High Level Group Forum in Madrid on January 15.


Len Bosack and Sandy Lerner, a married couple that worked in computer operations staff at Stanford University, founded Cisco Systems in 1984.
While Cisco was not the first company to develop and sell a router (a device that forwards computer traffic between two or more networks), it was one of the first to sell commercially successful multi-protocol routers, to allow previously incompatible computers to communicate using different network protocols. Len Bosack has ties to SETI, an organization devoted to the "Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence".

"Business Leaders Address Alliance of Civilization Forum

The working session on the corporate contribution to the Alliance of Civilizations featured speeches by the chief executives of Siemens (Germany), ENEL (Italy), Les Eaux Minérales d’Oulmès (Morocco), Repsol-YPF (Spain), BBVA (Spain), Koc Group (Turkey), Sabanci Group (Turkey), and General Electric International (USA).

Main outcomes of the session were:
In a globalized environment, the modern business model must reinforce diversity, and not just accept or tolerate it. Intercultural understanding expressed through diversity is a central factor in the business world today, one in which the strengthening of cultural understanding generates greater financial benefits and offer elements of stability, understanding and mutual support. Many western multinationals make highly significant strategic investments in countries of diverse cultures and civilizations. Therefore, the creation of business value today is based upon making a suitable response to all kinds of diversity, including that of customers and employees.
This investment trend will continue to expand, in the light of the fact that many such countries contain a substantial proportion of the world’s natural resources (such as oil and natural gas). Lasting, stable business relations represent the best Alliance of Civilizations, one in which everybody wins and in which differences may more easily be overcome and destabilising factors may better be neutralised The creation of ties among business groups on both sides of the Alliance is a powerful expression of diversity, one that enables us to work in each country on behalf of that country and for its benefit. The alliance of business communities belonging to these two worlds, far from being a challenge arising from a diversity of cultures, represents today a factor of strategic opportunity for greater and better global development, in a sustained and efficient way.To become prosperous, the world must be at peace. Economies can only develop within a context of stability. Companies have to play a crucial role in achieving and maintaining peace. This is especially significant in view of the fact that 95 of the 150 largest economies in the world are not countries, but multinationals.
Corporate Responsibility (CR) is ever more important in companies’ strategies, and is seen as a critical element of competitiveness to ensure a better, more solidly grounded economic development in the framework of globalization. Companies and governments must join forces and act in a committed way to promote CR and extend it to all the societies on both sides of the Alliance, as a guarantee of equality, diversity, ethics, good governance, transparency, judicial security and long-term sustainability.

As part of the Forum’s outcomes, the Global Compact and the Alliance of Civilizations agreed to partner in the production of a publication on the business contribution to intercultural understanding and peace through commerce and diversity management”, aimed at raising the visibility of best practices in the corporate sector toward supporting cross-cultural relations."

Waiting on key transcripts from this years Herzliya Conference before posting on it. I think Constance will find it VERY interesting, some familiar faces will be recognized.

Farmer, as we watch the WHOLE world permeate with the consequences of materialism and mysticism, what we see is the likes of SETI, 2001, ET, Starman, Encounters of the Third kind, Fire in the Sky, Communion, Star Wars, and such a host of will-full thinking that one wonders if the Whole world has gone mad. With no evidence They continue to spend millions looking, I dare say praying, for the evidence that extra-terrestrial life, and it doesn’t have to be intelligent, is out there. The result of the evolutionary paradigm, greedily grasped and worshiped forces all who adhere to it down a dark road.
“The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.”
Yours in Christ:
