        Subject: Mother Pelican ~ Vol 6 No 9 September 2010

The PelicanWeb's Journal of Sustainable Development has been renamed 
*Mother Pelican* in honor of the Human Being she represents.

The September 2010 issue has been posted, and this is the link to the 
front page: http://www.pelicanweb.org/solisustv06n09page1.html

     *The UN MDG Review Summit*
      1. The UN MDG Review Summit
      2. Review of the "Keeping the Promise" Report
      3. Opportunities for Collaboration/Participation
      4. Key References and Workings Documents
      5. Planned MDG Summit Meeting Agenda

The main focus of the September issue is an analysis of the main 
obstacles to sustainable development with specific focus on MDG3 (gender 
equality) and MDG8 (partnerships for development).

Supplements (September Updates):

      Supplement 1: Advances in Sustainable Development
      Supplement 2: Directory of Sustainable Development Resources
      Supplement 3: Sustainable Development Simulation (SDSIM)

The basic objective of this web-based simulation model is to stimulate 
discussion on policy priorities. Specifically, what is the top priority 
.... economic development or human development?  In other words, what 
are the trade-offs between pursuing further economic growth and 
investing in human well-being?

Articles:

       Declaration of Independence from Wall Street, by David Korten
       Seizing the Moment for Clean Energy, by Ann Florini
       Towards a New Economy and a New Politics, by Gus Speth

Feedback to the editor is always welcome!

Sincerely,
Luis

        From: Willard McCarty <willard.mccarty at mccarty.org.uk>
        Subject: Trans-Asia Photography Review

The following request raises an interesting question: what do 
photographers and scholars of photography have to say these days about 
the online medium? I would suppose that as yet we're nowhere near the 
degree of resolution that large-negative chemical photography can 
accomplish. From my own experience with low-end digital cameras, digital 
photography seems a very different medium in terms of the relationship 
between what one sees directly and the image one captures. Any comments?

Yours,
WM
