Inspired!

Hi Jensine--

I just listened to the podcast and was at the fabulous event this week in Portland at Mercy Corps! I am so glad you have followed your vision because we are all benefiting from World Pulse. I am convinced that a real movement is taking place and that the timing is perfect both in terms of what the world needs but also because of the technological possibilities. I enjoyed hearing your story on the podcast and was totally humbled and inspired by the stories of the 3 women journalists from Bolivia, Nepal, and the Philippines.

I am so glad I found the very first issue of World Pulse at In Other Words bookstore in Portland and I am proud to say I am one of many founding subscribers who will continue to support this amazing movement. I will also continue to give gift subscriptions because I love sharing World Pulse!

Thank-you!

With appreciation,

Phinnie

How World Pulse Works - Great Interview

Accelerating change in the world today is a major imperative.

Advocating for increasing progress against the 8 UN Millennium Development Goals has been a great passion of mine. Ms. Larsen has played the role of heroine bringing Web 2.0 applications to the forefront.

Making the world a better place must be a goal of all of us! Keep up the good works!

Equality,Dignity and Justice

Hello Jensine,

You have made a significant contribution to humanity as a founder of World Pulse. Your website is one of the shining stars in the landscape of the internet that connects people world wide. You are in the process of integrating women's voices across the world to a common platform of World Pulse. There is another organization Girlup.of of UN Foundation that addresses girls issues, such as child marriages and legislation related to it etc. Just recently Girlup sent me a mail from which I could send a message to Malala Yousafzai of Pakistan. Yousafzai was shot in the head and neck in an assassination attempt by Taliban gunmen while returning home on a school bus. I sent her a message condemning dastardly attack on her life and wished her early restoration of normal life.

Each individual person has her own story; a unique condition. There are a large number of different atrocities that are done and justice is required to be done across the entire cross-section of human society. It is vital to have a comprehensive list of atrocities. And most importantly how solutions can be provided in all the countries. I understand that your esteemed organization has good sound connections in almost all the countries in the world.

Is is very important that each individual genuine case be escalated to the international level for the world community to see and understand the phenomena and how cases are resolved.

Equality, Dignity and Justice for girls and women, in the future, ought to be restored and maintained.

Women is mother of man. Woman is daughter of Man. So do take care of men and understand their problems also. The need of the hour is to work in collaboration; women and men..

Hopefully you will be able to integrate ALL women in the world at any given point of time.

Also note that there is this thing called Female Foetcide (female infanticide) that reduces the number of females per 1000 males. This thing should be made an international crime and punished under international law. So international legislation prevent this, is required.

With Best wishes,
Sanjay Dixit,
Mumbai,India
