Quotes

THE 2014 World Cup's first draw—a dull, goalless game between Iran and Nigeria—happened on June 16th, bringing to an end a "draw-drought” of 12 games. The match was conspicuous in an otherwise high-scoring tournament, which so far has seen 44 goals, or 3.14 per match. It is proving to be one of the most exciting World Cups of recent times, including shock results such as the Netherlands' 5-1 win over Spain, the reigning champions. Such excitement bucks the modern trend. Until this year, the tournament had been losing its kick. A draw-less run such as this has not happened in World Cup history since the first competition in 1930, when only 13 teams played just 18 matches, all decisive. Prior to this tournament, more matches have resulted in stalemate, often scoreless, in the last six tournaments than the previous 13 combined. Even the 1994 and 2006 cup finals ended in a draw (the former without a single goal) and had to be decided by penalty shoot-outs. Why the increae in draws? Perhaps it is because more countries are...

...The situations usually capture immediate attention and quickly settle down. Just as online activism (known as “hacktivism ") is considered slacktivism (armchair activism) because it is rarely sustained, so too the concerned tweets might be called twactivism. Yet the #BringBackOurGirls campaign bucks the trend of a quick rise and fall, notes Ethan Zuckerman of the Centre for Civic Media at MIT. This is because it was driven first by a Nigerian twitterstorm (begun more than a week after the girls went missing) that got a second wind when picked up by the American and international media. The crossover came around May 7th, when—partly fuelled by Michelle Obama joining the campaign—more retweets came from... Continue reading "
...the curve do better in terms of social inclusiveness than their economic strength might dictate, while countries below the curve perform worse. "There is a view that economic development and social progress go hand in hand. That's true on average, but not in particular" says Michael Porter, a professor at Harvard Business School who worked on the study...
