Minting a currency in California state legislature? Coding the WUaS / World University and School database for all 7.5 billion people

The U.S. Department of the Treasury is responsible for the agencies that mint and engrave currencies in the US.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Department_of_the_Treasury

Could the California state legislature do this for a cryptocurrency with block chain ledger planned on smartphones in all ~200 countries' official languages - and building this to become a world currency by giving it away in the form of an Universal Basic Income to refugees and the poorest people in all countries ... eventually to develop in the same way that the Euro - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euro - has replaced 19 out of 28 currency in Europe ...

How could this parallel the introduction of the Euro -https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euro#Introduction?

"The currency was introduced in non-physical form (traveller's cheques, electronic transfers, banking, etc.) at midnight on 1 January 1999, when the national currencies of participating countries (the eurozone) ceased to exist independently. Their exchange rates were locked at fixed rates against each other. The euro thus became the successor to the European Currency Unit (ECU). The notes and coins for the old currencies, however, continued to be used as legal tender until new euro notes and coins were introduced on 1 January 2002."

Echo amphitheatre: Refugees, basic income and education / learning re WUaS?, Seems like a combination of all of these great online education platforms accessible on smartphones and on computers in languages and nation states of state-less people in refugee camps accessible via WIKI World University and School might be the answer, Basic income for refugees through mobile phones in part too?, Stanford "Medicine Grand Rounds: Protecting Civilians in War: Rethinking the Medical Response to Conflict"


Heard a great talk at Stanford Medicine Grand Rounds on Wednesday:

Medicine Grand Rounds: Protecting Civilians in War: Rethinking the Medical Response to Conflict


http://medicinecalendars.stanford.edu/event/medicine-grand-rounds-protecting-civilians-in-war/

While the talk focused on MD clinicians (and World University and School's medical schools with online teaching hospitals in all ~200 countries' official/main languages may be able to help with this too), Paul Wise MD also focused on the causes of war.

I asked afterward how a basic universal income might help {Quaker-wise} take away the causes of war, and Paul said that the issue in the largest refugee camp in the world (with about 300,000 people living there for more than 20 years) - and where there's cash assistance available from the U.N. or similar - was that the country didn't want the refugees to assimilate ... so a basic income might not work here, in protecting civilians from war ...

Why Finland’s Basic Income Experiment Isn’t Working

Conclusion:

"So what can we learn from all of this so far? How not to conduct a trial of this kind. Universal basic income can only succeed if the effort is sustained and widespread — and not available only to the unemployed. The program should not be intended to force people into low-paying jobs.
The Finnish government has a chance to correct its course. It should expand the trial in early 2018, as originally planned, and steer it back to its original ideals: a bold experiment to collect hard data about how a much-debated idea actually works in practice. Only that would honor Finland’s tradition of experimenting with innovative social policies."

Education in the Second Largest Refugee Camp in the World

https://www.globalpartnership.org/blog/education-second-largest-refugee-camp-world

*
According to our latest education report, 3.5 million refugee children did not attend school in 2016. Only 61 per cent of refugee children attend primary school, compared with a global average of 91 per cent.
As refugee children age, the obstacles to education increase. Just 23 per cent of refugee adolescents are enrolled in secondary school, compared to 84 per cent globally. For tertiary education the situation is critical. Only one per cent of refugee youth attends university, compared to 36 per cent globally.

Hi Anu, Ted, Krish, Kristian and Dave,

Wonderful to meet all of you as well.

Some further thoughts have come to mind re our Accessibility Meetup and opportunities re

a) WUaS Law Schools in nation states' official languages - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Nation_States - and

b) a Cryptocurrency with blockchain as an Universal Basic Income for all 7.5 billion people, e.g. see

https://twitter.com/sgkmacleod/status/939971802536722432
https://twitter.com/sgkmacleod/status/939971802536722432.


A)

I wonder if your Prakat (software testing) company, Anu and Krish, could find Indian lawyers speaking the Kannada language to teach at World University and School's Kannada language online law school - like http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/g00/wiki/India_Law_School_at_WUaS - about real estate and property contracts, and do this in, conceptually, Google Docs, which would then connect with Google Translate/GNMT toward machine translation and with TensorFlow, Google's AI software (and benefit financially from writing these property contracts).

And also in Prakat http://prakat.com/ finding such law professors, who are legally licensed to practice law in the state of Karnataka and in India, whether we could connect these property contracts in GDocs with an emergent Cryptocurrency with the blockchain, such that a hypothetical Intuit TurboTax in India (which would grow as software with Indian and Karnataka tax law developments, in the Kannada language) would be able to offer A) a legal and B) a financial tax decision on these property transactions in Google Docs with regard to the India tax system. (TurboTax is in at least the US and in Canada - https://turbotax.intuit.ca/tax-software/index.jsp)

B)

I wonder too if Prakat could facilitate an Universal Basic Income in the Kannada language in the state of Karnataka - and re

"World Univ & Sch in all 7,099 living languages (around https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/Nation_States …) seeks to develop Universal Basic Income #UBI for 7.5 bil people w cryptocurrency w blockchain. What law code does Calif have on books like 25012f https://twitter.com/WUaSPress/status/939964589189382144 … for minting a new currency?" (https://twitter.com/sgkmacleod/status/939971802536722432)

The idea here would be that the California state legislature would create the legal framework for Universal Basic Income and this is happening in Stockton California - see

Director of the Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration

"DESCRIPTION


Mayor Michael Tubbs and the Reinvent South Stockton Coalition (RSSC) are launching an effort to explore how a guaranteed basic income can empower citizens struggling in the modern economy to build a better future for themselves and their families. The Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration (SEED) is the nation’s first-ever municipal level pilot program that will evaluate how an income floor of $500/month can improve the economic security and well-being of city residents."
https://www.idealist.org/en/nonprofit-job/e287a0cd4cf34a8baef97f54885d8b08-director-of-the-stockton-economic-empowerment-demonstration-economic-security-project-stockton?  (see ...

https://twitter.com/WUaSPress/status/939970031613440000 ) - and create the legal framework for a cryptocurrency with blockchain (where the new WUaS Corporation is able to issue stock shares to 35 people based on the 25012f LOEN tax code development ... see this yet again - https://twitter.com/sgkmacleod/status/939971802536722432) ... such that this California state legal development would potentially be able to put a guaranteed basic income accessible to smartphones, for example, in the state of Karnataka, India, which would allow Karnatakans there to buy a cup of coffee at Starbucks or potentially pay rent or pay for a house - all with a cryptocurrency in the Kannada language?

To
"India World University and School" - https://wiki.worlduniversityandschool.org/wiki/India#Wikipedia - I've just wiki-added -

Kannada language:
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kannada

Kannada: https://kn.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E0%B2%95%E0%B2%A8%E0%B3%8D%E0%B2%A8%E0%B2%A1

Karnataka (state):
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karnataka

- and much of the above would emerge on the "India World University and School" pages above as well. (I just added similar Bengali resources and could put you in touch with my friend Saumitra SenGupta, who is originally from West Bengal, about all of this as well).

item B) above would potentially create free money with exchange value to all Karnatakans and give it away on smartphones - as a kind of guaranteed basic income there, and the Kannada language property and real estate lawyers could also help write this cryptocurrency with blockchain law into the Indian and Karnatakan tax codes in appropriate languages.

And by giving this Cryptocurrency away (thanks to cryptocurrency law in the California state legislature - paralleling the 25012f process for stock shares which the WUaS Corp has just done, in a limited way at first), this cryptocurrency could become an international currency, and taxable with Intuit Turbotax in all ~200 countries' nation states' official languages (in a similar way with WUaS law faculty writing this code to give a cryptocurrency away in a limited way at first).

Stanford (Kristian?) would play a role in this too - hopefully with free Stanford Medicine and Stanford Law Creative Commons' OpenCourseWare for free online university law and medicine degrees to students in all official languages in India and indeed in all ~200 countries official languages (I'm scheduled again to meet with a head of the Stanford Medical School in these regards this Thursday).

How might we communicate about this further? Do you think Prakat could find Kannada language lawyers for the WUaS law school in Kannada language to teach Property contracts in Google Docs as smart contracts online with a Cryptocurrency with blockchain as this develops, potentially into an universal currency via a Universal Basic Income?

Could Prakat develop ways to test all this as software in the Kannada language, in Karnataka and indeed in all of India, potentially in other official languages in India too?

Namaste and warm regards,
Scott

Mars: Space SALVAGE resources, How to define Space Law http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Space_Law and Salvage Law re Maritime Law to clean up Space? With realistic virtual universe?, Mars is ~35 million miles' away at closest and could take 2 yrs for return trip, In what ways could the @WUaSPress at best create markets in space for used space ship parts, solar panels - re WUaS's online law schools planned in all countries' languages salvage law? @AstronautAbby @rdasher8 and space clean up?

And also re 
And today (partly re my actual / virtual Harbin Hot Springs' research with planned realistic virtual Harbin/earth/universe) ...

Wittle bit of a law enforcement / public safety issue in deep space on the way to Mars :)

*
How best to stay in touch about space law, space missions perhaps in communication with Astronaut Abigail Harrison who seeks to be the first person to land on Mars in the 2030s (she's a Wellesley undergraduate presently), salvage/maritime law, and cleaning up space ... and making space art and markets in general (re space law)?

Best regards, 
Scott

Curious too in what ways space might be engaged for SPACE TOURISM, and re this one - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/2017/12/venus-stanford-astroscale-talk-from.html - as well as these recent posts:

Atmosphere of Mars: Hippy SPACE Arts? Strathspey on planet Mars?, Strathspey? When you get to Mars @AstronautAbby can we find a set of 8 peeps & SCOTTISH COUNTRY DANCE @TheOpenBand with - you on Mars & some in the Harbin warm pool/BERKELEY & VIRTUALLY?, Hippy space art? In what ways could the @WUaSPress best create markets in space for used space ship parts, solar panels - re WUaS's /Space_Law in all countries' languages, Can you get that billion $ solar array panel off that phantom ship 1 million miles out @AstronautAbby & further define space salvage law entrepreneurially? :)

Hongmei (and All), 

Thanks for an interesting Tourism Studies' talk at UC Berkeley yesterday - http://www.tourismstudies.org/news_archive/Zhao2017.htm . To further ask my "advertising discourse" question (re Thurot and Thurot), and as an afterthought: 

In what ways could the village of Baisha best plant nicer and nicer houses to grow Bai peoples' culture - re Bai people see ... http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/811 - (as distinct from their economics), such that micro-milieus would lead to macro-milieus of tourists visiting Baisha en masse, since their reports' home would reflect the growing quality of house-planting ... in main cities/countries of tourist origin ?

And how would local and foreign students (further) study this Bai (and/or Naxi) culture/fantasy/imagninary question (and in a realistic virtual earth for ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy especially, thinking Google Streetview with TIME SLIDER which we can all add to - https://scott-macleod.blogspot.com/search/label/ethno-wiki-virtual-world-graphy ).


Thank you,
Scott

(Here's my " Gazing at the Box: Tourism in the Context of the Internet and Globalization (Internetity) " paper which I wrote in Nelson's course where I look at this question further -https://www.academia.edu/15259682/Gazing_at_the_Box_Tourism_in_the_Context_of_the_Internet_and_Globalization_Internetity_ )

Nelson, Hongmei, Stephane, Amir, Xiangchun and All, 

Thurot and Thurot's 1983 paper provided a key interpretation for creating a tourism studies' reading of the internet / information age for me as a condition informing tourism, and emerging from my reading of Dean's "The Tourist" re modernity (and Urry's reading of post-modernity re tourism). Each author's broad theorizing (MacCannell, Urry, Thurot and Thurot, and MacLeod) could also probably inform an interpretation of "house-planting" in Baisha, Lijiang, China, as well, in a related vein, and around the "culture" question - how does this word translate anthropologically meaning-wise into Chinese I wonder? ... beyond imaginary and fantasy (and aside from the political economics' questions your talk addressed as I heard it).  

And I just found the actual paper by Thurot and Thurot (1983), which Nelson pointed me to in the year 2000, in a different academic social media site - https://www.researchgate.net/publication/222235305_The_ideology_of_class_and_tourism_confronting_the_discourse_of_advertising - than the one my paper is accessible from https://www.academia.edu/15259682/Gazing_at_the_Box_Tourism_in_the_Context_of_the_Internet_and_Globalization_Internetity_ ... 

Hongmei, Stephane and Amir, I've found far-reaching the MIT OCW "Introduction to Anthropology" course in English - https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/anthropology/21a-00-introduction-to-anthropology-spring-2013/ - and especially reading its first book - Ahearn, Laura M. Chapters 1–2 in Invitations to Love: Literacy, Love Letters, and Social Change in Nepal. University of Michigan Press, 2001. ISBN: 9780472067848 - (which is accessible for free to borrow in limited copies from the Open Library - https://openlibrary.org/works/OL8246563W/Invitations_to_Love )

It would be interesting to read Ahearn's "Invitations to Love: Literacy, Love Letters, and Social Change in Nepal" from a tourism studies' perspective - and espeically from Chinese, French and Egyptian / Arabic perspectives too . 

But books don't get translated easily between languages - so it isn't possible to read Ahearn's "Invitations to Love: Literacy, Love Letters, and Social Change in Nepal" in Chinese, French and Arabic, for example. 

So here's the MIT OCW in Chinese 'Introductory' course called "Anthropological Theory, Spring 2003" - http://www2.myoops.org/twocw/mit/Anthropology/21A-110Anthropological-TheorySpring2003/CourseHome/index.htm - but without Ahearn's "Invitations to Love: Literacy, Love Letters, and Social Change in Nepal," and accessible from MIT OCW in Chinese - https://ocw.mit.edu/courses/translated-courses/traditional-chinese/ . 

How best to create great translations of texts re Tourism Studies or MIT OCW Anthropology between these languages ... and to study how students learn comparatively around the same course (a goal of WUaS too) ... and until, for example, the machine translation between all 7,099 living languages in Academic Press at WUaS - http://worlduniversityandschool.org/AcademicPress.html - gets to a professional level, I wonder? I hope too that matriculated students for free CC MIT OCW degrees at World University and School in nation states whose official languages are traditional Chinese, French and Arabic will have access to excellent online university libraries from the field in all 7,099 living languages at World University and School - http://worlduniversity.wikia.com/wiki/Library_Resources - for free.

While it looks like Anthropology Prof. Laura Ahearn's field site of Junigau village and the nearby Banyan HIlls in Nepal haven't made it into Google Streetview yet, the capital ciety of Kathmandu, Nepal, itself, has -  


As a further thought re your "house-planting" talk, Hongmei: since Baisha near Lijiang, China is in Google Streetview - 
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Baisha,+Heqing,+Dali,+Yunnan,+China/@26.6413335,100.2137902,15z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m5!3m4!1s0x372737a243d8debb:0xc638a3758c63f304!8m2!3d26.641315!4d100.222545 - it should be able to design and build buildings to house-plant further eventually in Google Streetview itself, and with economic and touristic significance (and culturally in new ways too) ... and for doing virtual field work ... which could give Baisha and your anthropological studies there a big advantage over, for example, Junigau in Nepal, which has a great book "Invitations to Love: ... " (the first anthropological book read in a MIT course ) ... and with an opportunity to write as comparatively a good Tourism Studies' anthropological book about Baisha as Laura Ahearn's book "Invitations to Love" as well. 

And by way of further comparison: 
Visit the Harbin Hot Springs' Gate here ~ http://tinyurl.com/p62rpcg (and re https://twitter.com/WUaSPress https://twitter.com/WorldUnivandSch Harbin Hot Springs' Book http://bit.ly/HarbinBook ) 

Re Thurot and Thurot, could Twitter profiles themselves, for example my Harbin book Twitter profile - https://twitter.com/HarbinBook - be interpreted as a micro-milieu > macro-milieu touristic expression? When I just did a quick search on Baisha, China in Twitter, for example, I found this - https://twitter.com/RachaelRuble/status/801701516428001281 - in passing. 

Thanks again for your interesting talk on Friday, Hongmei.
