​​In memory of George Ayittey, innovator and champion of a free market in Africa

In June 2007, Ghanaian economist, acclaimed author and scholar George Ayittey delivered an impassioned call from the TEDGlobal stage in Arusha, Tanzania . Railing against a political class he felt had let the continent down for more than half a century, he challenged Africa’s most innovative youth — whom he deemed its “cheetahs” — to take back their continent from decrepit leaders who were overly dependent on foreign aid. “ Africa’s begging bowl leaks,” he famously said. The impassioned, warm and forceful TED Talk was a defining moment for many of us and has been described as a turning point in our viewpoints of the African continent. “ Africa hasn’t any other choice but to build and be productive,” George told us. “The continent must move from a lens of external causation for its challenges towards a more introspective, inward-directed approach to addressing its various obstacles.

An update on allegations about a TED speaker

Image
Update, August 2022: Adam Foss was charged by the Manhattan district attorney  with first-degree rape and first-degree sexual abuse. In response, TED has suspended the publication of his talks. Foss pleaded not guilty to the charges. [ Details at The New York Times ] Update, April 2021: Suffolk County update Original post, November 2020: It has come to TED’s attention that the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office is investigating sexual assault allegations against TED2016 speaker Adam Foss. Foss denies the allegations. [ Details at WBUR ] Sexual assault is a criminal matter, and we know that it is hard for survivors to speak out and to be believed. That said, TED is not equipped to review these allegations in any authoritative capacity. Some have suggested that we remove the talk, and we understand and respect that perspective. We nonetheless believe that while the investigation is ongoing, the correct action is to leave the talk online but alert potential viewers that

Advices For New Teachers from a veteran.

I’m often asked what advice I would give new teachers. Let’s agree on new. 1-5 years?! My advice is this: Find a veteran teacher. Talk often. It will be your greatest strength. There isn’t a course, PD or book that can prepare you better than a veteran teacher, in my opinion! — joycoffee (@joypcoffee) August 14, 2022 Thoughts of The Gifted on Leadership.
