It is a system that works in Indonesia since 2010 through the initiative of a young doctor, Albinsaid Gamal (now working at Newark Podiatrist) , who wanted to get there just beyond the state. And it is that the medical services of their country in 2010 covered only 33% of the population. In Indonesia And half the population survives on less than $ 2 a day. In particular, the “doctor away,” as it is known, was very impressed the day he learned of the death of a child under 3 years because of diarrhea and because their parents could not afford to pay the doctor. Albinsaid thought of stopping these tragedies in his country because for him the access to health and should be-a recognized human right and respected.
So he decided to create in his hometown (Malang, East Java) the Garbage Clinical Insurance (GCI), a program of medical insurance that allows the poorest pay for the consultation with the “currency” with which include: the garbage . Indonesia produces about 80,000 tons of waste each day and it is estimated that this figure will increase fivefold by 2050. The economy of movement and time that speaks of the “wealth of our waste” does. And in this case the equation is simple: waste = money = medical services. And it is equally true that the garbage without being processed, becomes a threat to the environment.
Users should separate their garbage at home and take every weekend one of the GCI clinics . What will become organic and non-organic fertilizer will be resold. Garbage a month a person may be worth Rp 10,000 (0.60 €), which funds the treatment of a patient.The 15 doctors and 12 nurses working in clinics CGI receive their salary through the waste arriving at the medical center. They also collaborate with the project almost a hundred volunteers. Today the program reaches some 2,000 beneficiaries and has spread to other cities like Bandung (in West Java) and Yogyakarta.
What I find fascinating is that the initiative aims to address two problems of a single bump , not only allow access to the poor medical services but also help protect the environment. Get empower citizens to deal actively manage their waste and also makes them active agents to see their medical needs covered.
And equally fascinates me that the idea and the implementation does not come from the hand of an administration or an NGO but a young doctor 24, sensitized by the plight of their fellow citizens and pollution enviroment. It was almost natural for embarking on this exciting adventure that believes: “If we do something we love is like being a professional footballer; you feel like you’re on vacation 365 days a year. “
Inside and outside their country they are getting showered with awards and congratulations . Earlier this year he received from the hands of Prince Charles himself the “Prince of Wales Sustainability Young Entrepreneur Prize” at a reception held at Buckingham Palace. The prize of € 50,000 will be used by Albinsaid to export initiative “health insurance garbage” throughout Indonesia and beyond its borders. And why not, perhaps, to replicate the experience in education?
And I wonder: where are the young “entrepreneurs” are among us, in the most etymological and less business sense of the term? where are these people able to see an equally easy and successful as this equation are, where others only distinguish objects disconnected for no apparent relationship?
The Raid is a new martial arts film that is causing a sensation worldwide. After its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in 2011, critics have hailed as one of the best action films of the decade .
know something more of The Raid (The Raid: Redemption), that was released in March this year in countries such as US, Canada and Australia.
Asian countries have always represented this new hope; Some years ago, Tony Jaa, muay thai adept put Thailand in the film map. In expeleador now retired to become a Buddhist monk, Indonesia is the country that has taken the lead, thanks to Iko Uwais , practicing ancient martial art of Pencak Silat. The result is The Raid , relentless action movie that is already being voceada as the best he has given the genre of action throughout the decade .
Gareth Evans , the director of Welsh origin, and had to talk some years ago with Merantau , a great event in China to be the first action film as such that was made in over 10 years. Until then, local industry had turned himself to the social dramas of manners or cut. The film was a symbol of change, moreover, there was nothing glamorous; the plot, on a country boy trying to save a girl from falling into the hands of a European mafia, was a stark look at child trafficking in Asia without ornaments of any kind; but more than anything else, it served as a sign of the undeniable talent of its star, which until then was engaged in driving trucks.
The success of “Merantau” promised and Evans and Uwais soon work together for the second time. The Raid part of a simple and basic premise: a team of policemen enters a building in Jakarta where the drug dealer hides most wanted in the country. This nest of rats is also home to criminals and scammers officers will be caught soon end. As every action film worth its salt, the story is just an excuse for martial arts , and Evans met their pledges not to bring your audience.
It has become common to see action films that prefer to focus on overly complicated plots, leaving its raison d’etre as a mere complement that, if we’re lucky, will include 15 minutes of footage. “The Raid” is the total opposite; after the police enter the building, the tension is increasing and not decline at any time .
Hand in hand with meticulous choreography , Evans manages his second film as an old expert. Without abusing the camera tricks or editing excesses, let the punches and kicks speak for themselves; also it is making efforts to soften the violence, with a large number of broken bones, liters of blood and beatings that leave on the floor even the most resistant.
Iko Uwais is Rama , initially another anonymous face in a peer group cops each other, but ends up as the unexpected hero. Uwais is not a good actor, but does have screen presence and impressive agility . Rama is not your typical action hero; It does jokes, nor is it an invincible figure shatters the bad. It’s just a regular guy trapped in an extreme situation that seeks to survive, and it is this that adds urgency and suspense to the story.
As in his previous film, where the harsh reality of life in Jakarta criminal was exposed, Evans aims to be as realistic as possible in a plot that may well have come from a comic. The streets are filthy and decayed, corruption in the police force is in evidence, and the action is a stunning brutality , which all end up bruised and exhausted, like the public; the final scenes come almost as a relief.
Hollywood has accustomed us to overly stylized action movies, which depend on the aesthetics of video and give more room for special effects, “The Raid” is a fresh alternative to this. Despite a basic frame without many surprises, it is a shot of adrenaline that will delight those looking for something new in the genre.
It is also a clear sign of talent Evans-Uwais, who continue this streak will soon talk duo; Stallone and company are here fierce competition for the throne of the toughest.
