BATR: Occupy Extreme and Establishment Moderate

Occupy Extreme and Establishment Moderate

So much written about the Occupy Wall Street is pure BS. If this street theater was a spontaneous and independent movement, where is the outrage towards the high priest of monetary manipulation, George Soros?

From the outset, civil disobedience is the most sincere method of dissent. Breaking All the Rules is based upon a healthy and judicious resistance towards all levels of false authority and systemic corruption. Therefore, it is with a heavy heart, that the careerist organizers and front groups for the establishment sweep away the noble intentions of earnest radicals. Those enablers and facilitators of fraudulent financial institutions makes a mockery of authentic protection.

Long ago, the glory of tangible free enterprise was destroyed under the boot of State Capitalism. When the confused populace rails against demonstrations and defend the crooks that perverted economic M A R K E T S, it becomes clear why the public has a habit of losing money with brokerage houses. In order to take the going broke out of the "so called" investments, one had better learn early that paper assets, often come with future liabilities, when entrusted to the establishment.

Occupy Wall Street is smeared as extreme by those who benefit from a diversion away from their own wrongdoings. Once upon a time, a stock exchange functioned as a clearinghouse medium for raising capital. The investment funds financed new ventures that would produce useful products and employ labor. This bygone era was the engine of creating true wealth. Today, gambling is the primary activity conducted under a rigged casino wheel.

How much history do you recall? The incompatible Antony C. Sutton documents in Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution how the monopolists of finance funded Lenin. George Soros plays the Schiff role in this modern day version of a Goldman Sachs impersonation of Kuhn, Loeb and Company. If you do not know this pesky fact of the last century, one cannot be expected to make sense out of current events.

A simple comparison between OWS and TE (The Establishment) is in order.

Occupy Extreme
Establishment Moderate

Blame Wall Street for Economic Woes
Make OWS the Issue to Deflect Scrutiny

Gain Media Attention for Misdeeds of the Rich
Shift Public Outrage to OWS – Protect System

Argue that 99% vs. 1% is Unjust and Immoral
Use Class Warfare to Demigod OWS Radicals

Demand Redistribution from the Wealthy Rich
Champion Benefits of Capitalism of the Few

Call for Bigger Government and Intervention
Strict Regulation for Benefit of Big Business

Abolish Market System – Expand Socialism
Expand Collectivism - More People Control


During the Old Regime under the reign of Louis XVI, the aristocracy lost their heads under the guillotine. In the 21th Century, the masters of the universe, spread breadcrumbs by way of food stamps to a society relegated to systemic government poverty and dependency. The only cake consumed these days requires a hedge fund account to pay for the icing and toppings.

What realistic likelihood is there for a people’s revolution to replace the titans of finance, when the robber barons are playing CHOPIN : Marche Funèbre for the occupied nation? What chance is there for a replay of the French Libertine Tradition to play out when the theme of anti-clericalism, anti-establishment and eroticism have had their run and the establishment just gets more bold and powerful?

A novel counter approach to guns and pitchforks is the video camera that documents the police state. Deplorably the ordinary exploited bystander is characterized as an extremist and soon will be incarcerated into internment camps, built by the Uber Elite. What many naive observers see is not the brutality of the Gestapo police, but the disrespect of the unclean protestors of the Capitalist kingdom.

Most Americans refuse to face the facts of their enslavement and rather condemn the social rebel. Bringing true social justice to an economic system that has eliminated all vestiges of real Free Market enterprise is viewed as a betrayal.

When that hideous dinosaur of establishment journalism, Time Magazine, wraps the symbolism of the protestor in the garb of a terrorist, the message is clear for even the most brain dead striver for more government largess.

Time distorts the significance with more deflection and confusion.

"Massive and effective street protest" was a global oxymoron until — suddenly, shockingly — starting exactly a year ago, it became the defining trope of our times. And the protester once again became a maker of history.

The Washington Post adds to the illusion.

"In this year’s report, Time pieced together what all these revolutions have in common, why they protest, and what the legacy of the year’s protests will be. The magazine profiles a citizen journalist who started the live stream for Occupy Wall Street from Zuccotti Park."

What both Time and the Washington Post want you to accept is that these protests are composed of radical inspiration and democratic design. No doubt, many demonstrators believe they are acting out of pure intentions, but most are so deluded by inept viewpoints, absent of any consistent or comprehensive philosophy, that they are clueless about goals, objectives and have no viable substitute economic system.

Wall Street only uses money accumulation for keeping score. The underlying objective of the power elite is to control the political process and write all the rules. Nothing has changed from the days of installing Marxist ideology in Russia to the present stage of completing the task of instituting totalitarian collectivism in our country. Another establishment media purveyor of disinformation is MSNBC. In an article by the perennial social outlaw and opportunist, Jesse Jackson compares the global anti-capitalist movement to the U.S. civil rights struggle, the battle against apartheid in South Africa and the fight for Indian independence.

"Jesus was an Occupier, born under a death warrant, a Jew by religion, born in poverty under Roman occupation," the two-time candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination told a crowd near Saint Paul’s Cathedral. "Gandhi was an Occupier, Martin Luther King was an Occupier, (Nelson) Mandela was an Occupier."

Coming from an extortionist posing as a minister of faith, this charlatan plays a bit role in the overall scheme to destroy the legitimate foundations of raising capital for worthwhile business endeavors. He insults the significance of Jesus’ ministry and Gandhi’s example. His role is to lead more people into even greater mental confusion.

The establishment refines the elements of mass propaganda and psychological indoctrination to create image campaigns that the system is a moderate and stable force, and must be maintained. As with most left or progressive oriented mindsets, the articulation of social wrongs and injustices are often well stated. However, when it comes to providing meaningful alternatives, the peasants just demand a larger sliced of bread because they are unable to learn the skills to bake their own cake.

Until society embraces the insight that the establishment is behind most radical social movements, they will just keep falling into a dark coffin, designed for them by the very elites that they protect. Economic conditions and business endeavors are on the mind of everyone, especially those who are on the edge of survival. OWS will never provide moneymaking guidance for the average citizen. Even so, do not condemn all forms of protest. Actually genuine resistance accompanied with practical time proven principles of monetary and business wealth creation is the desired option.

In order to explore the nature of financial alternatives and present rational choices for a replacement of the corporatist system of monetary tyranny and transnational globalism, BATR will be starting the Negotium series of weekly business columns.

Blending functional economics with political realism is the mission of this endeavor. The overriding principle to achieve a prosperous society requires building upon a solid foundation of Western Civilization and traditional heritage. Understanding the extent that the establishment is willing to go and the degree of deceit that bonds the various corrupt institutions is an essential goal for this collection of essays.

Appreciating the need for extreme encounters with the moderate establishment is a concept that some will challenge. However, given the current state of economic ruin, the plights of the former middle class will only deteriorate at a faster pace under the rule of the Wall Street banksters.

There is an alternative, and you are invited to join the spontaneous rebellion of the real America. Someday the OWS proponents may mature and gain the wisdom to know who is benefiting from their manufactured and controlled protests. Until that time, the task resides with you. Register your opposition to the Wall Street enslavers who stage-manage righteous outrage as an opportunity to misdirect legitimate rebellion. Time is short, act soon.

POOF SAID

Greetings and Salutations,

The negotiators are in force and the power hungry are exerting their Will. Lets say the negotiators are up to much good and the power hungry are behind the eight ball. The power hungry are running out of ammunition and spitballs won’t do much good these days.

This is the time that is being seen as the time that 'tries men's souls'. And the ways of the power hungry are being seen for what they are. It is and has been a tug of war. Each delay slips the process back an inch and then a forward movement in our favor gaining a solid two inches. Make no mistake about that: the group that turns the tide is the one that makes the waves and rocks boats.

You have seen enough of corrupt power and that is plainly obvious.
There is much light and brightness ahead on the horizon! The cheap shots and the underhanded ways have been pushed to the surface and the continuing waves this creates plays on the emotions. We are happy to see shifts that are leading to the end goal of manifesting the goods long awaited... P...

Dear Community,

No one promised us a Rose Garden and some of this information "By My Highest Nose Bleed Source" feels like thorny promises. I can confirm that the "Black Out" is a real thing and it does suggest much back room activity

One of the very popular forums out there in information world was visited last week by a government agency and requested to shut down all public communications. These actions suggest sensitive preparation being made "out of view" to begin the various changes we are all expecting and promised for so many years ago.

The information directly pertinent to all Prosperity Program remains consistent... any minute, any hour, any day expect the delivery trucks to your door. I wish for myself and you it would happen in the next hour!!! That being said perhaps our happy place is about to have a celebration. Many Blessings, Susan

HI ALL

YES, STILL IN A FORMAL BLACKOUT, BUT IT WILL END SOON I WAS INFORMED. IN THE MEANTIME, THE AMOUNT OF RUMOR THAT IS PRESENT IS ABSOLUTELY STAGGERING. NOT ONLY THE REPUBLIC IS HERE, SECRETLY, MEETING IN UNDERGROUND BUNKERS BY THE LIGHT OF AN OIL LAMP, BUT THE GOOD ALIENS ARE ATTENDING AND GIVING US THE GIFT OF FIRE (MATCHES). THE GOOFINESS OF SOME OF IT IS EXTRAORDINARY AND MAKES FOR A GOOD FIRESIDE CHUCKLE.

I WAS PRESENTED WITH A BRILLIANT DISCOURSE ON THE STORIES SO FAR, AND I HAVE TO SHARE IT HERE.

"Edits" - GCR/RV Insanity

After a few years on the intel desk, we have gotten some pretty strange things in our inbox. Some of it, well, wasn't exactly let's say "confirmable." Some of it was even a little scary. And some of it nearly melted my face. Below are some of the more curious "edits" we've gotten over the years that did not make the daily SITREPS.

Maliki was spotted in Akron, Ohio today operating a falafel cart with the name tag "Baghdad Badass."

Tony & DC we're married this past Sunday in a Sing Sing rec area. RayRen presided over the ceremony and Dick Cheney sang "My Heart Will Go On" in Draco.

There's a rumor floating around that General Dunford has donated both his patellas to science after the RV-- dead or alive -- he loves science that much as well as hates his kneecaps that feverishly.

Sharia Law Bank is now open for business in Istanbul, Turkey and opening counterfeit IQD Daesh checking accounts in exchange for a detonating unicycle, a plastic three hump exploding camel named Trinity and a handcrafted pair of C-4 nunchucks signed by Mountain Goat.

Martha has the 800#s, but refuses to give them out until 500 people go to her new website DinarlandZombieApocalypse.jcc.

"Ancient Babylon Goat Rape Positions"

Heisenberg gets his comedic inspiration from an acrylic Morgan Fairchild painting while wearing an adult diaper he's had monogrammed, "Big Papi's Wet-Nap."

Yosef's infamous Tetelestai alert word means "It is finished" in Greek, but it's also double agent Nazi code for an emergency pick up by his personal Uber driver—Achmed (THE DEAD TERRORIST) -- in front of the popular Aleppo gay bar "Portals."

Dr. WC was spotted in an Afghanistan Green Zone yesterday knitting the most colorful afghans for wounded extra terrestrials out of recycled lamb's wool and used tinfoil.

Cabal journalist Ben Fulford is really RTC moderator Showme from Medicine Hat, Alberta. Who in his spare time drives a purple turbo Zamboni around town, charging children over 48 inches tall for shotgun rides with a video game hockey legend.

President Abadi was seen in Washington, D.C. earlier this week playing dominos with Obama in the Map Room of the White House, and proceeded to flip the table up in the air when he was told there would be no sandwiches served if he kept on winning. He refused to lose for 72 straight hours and nearly died of starvation.

37 metric tones of gold bullion was spotted being transported in a Honda Civic hatchback driven by striking Anglo-loving Special Ops agent nicknamed "Canada Kathy." The gold was quickly loaded onto a ship called "Tic-Tac-Dough" and sailed directly to the East Coast--where it will melted down into thick woven chains and sold to successful rap artists in the Newark area.

One Who Knows is heavy into rubber. Thick industrial grade rubber. Even the whips and restraints. All rubber.

WHAT A TICKLE…EVEN SNUFFLES COULDN’T HELP HIMSELF AND IS ROLLING ON THE FLOOR. THE ABOVE IS BEING INVESTIGATED OF COURSE, AND THE WAY IT IS BEING INVESTIGATED IS THE SUBJECT OF ANOTHER BRILLIANT DISCOURSE INTO THE WAY THE GOVERNMENT INVESTIGATES SUCH THINGS. GO SEE:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6F0Hv9TUrfs

WHAT IS THE REAL BOTTOM LINE? DOES ANYBODY KNOW BESIDES THE FOLKS THAT ARE SPEARHEADING THE PROCESSES? NOT REALLY. EVERYBODY THAT DOES KNOW IS CLAMMED UP TIGHTER THAN A FRIDGE IN A BLOCK OF ICE IN THE ARCTIC.

I DO KNOW SOME THINGS, BUT I TOO CAN NOT SAY. IT WOULD BE A TERRIBLE BREACH OF SECURITY. I HAVE HAD MY MOMENTS AND SOMETIMES WENT A BIT TOO FAR. I WAS ADMONISHED, AND I DON’T DO THAT ANYMORE IF YOU NOTICE. THE TIMES ARE VERY SENSITIVE RIGHT NOW, AND SPECULATION IS THE ONLY THING THAT IS PRESENT TO READ. READING BETWEEN THE LINES IS ALSO TOUGH CONSIDERING THE INFORMATION OVERLOAD.

HOWEVER, IT WILL ALL HAPPEN IN DUE COURSE, SO WHY WORRY? I GUESS IF YOU HAVE THE SHERRIFF KNOCKING ON THE DOOR ON A 3 DAY QUIT YOU WILL WORRY, BUT OTHERWISE THERE IS NOTHING THAT CAN BE DONE AS IT WILL ALL TAKE ITS COURSE IN ITS OWN TIME, SO DO NOT DESPAIR AND DO NOT GET EXCITED. JUST KEEP ON PLUGGING IN THE JOB YOU HAVE, DO NOT GIVE IT UP, AND IF YOU HAVE, GO GET IT BACK. WITHOUT INCOME YOU ARE IN VERY BAD SHAPE INDEED. I KNOW THAT ONE.

SO HANG IN THERE. THE SEQUENCE OF EVENTS EXPECTED NOW IS GOING TO BE QUITE FAST IN COMPARISON TO ALL THE WAITING WE HAVE DONE, AND I TRULY HOPE IT WILL START THIS COMING WEEK IF ALL GOES WELL. IN THE MEANTIME, THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES TO SURVIVE AND KEEP THE WORKLOAD MANAGEABLE.

MAKE NO MISTAKE THAT WE ARE ABOUT TO ENTER A PERIOD OF TIME MARKED BY CONFUSION, HOPE, FRUSTRATION, AND EVENTUALLY MUCH JOY. WE ARE HERE TO DO THIS, AND BY GUM WE’RE GONNA DO IT. AND DO IT RIGHT.

GREAT THANKS AND GOD BLESS YOU.

GCR/RV Judicial Overview: "Supreme" -- June 25, 2017



Source: Dinar Chronicles

The slow bleed out of the Trump Presidency is well beyond his tweeting control.

Obama has Trump by the orange short hairs (whatever gender you believe it favors).

And the new upcoming Supreme Court vacancy soon to be left by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy is politically motivated in terms of its timing.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.washingtonpost.com/amphtml/opinions/the-terrifying-and-terrible-prospect-of-justice-kennedy-retiring/2017/06/23/bc73ff9a-5830-11e7-a204-ad706461fa4f_story.html

Just as Trump is on the way out, another Supreme Court seat magically opens up.

Interesting.

Similar timing to how Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia suddenly came up dead just as the 2016 election was coming to a dramatic finish.

Did you know 75% of everyone voting did so just to ensure a conservative or liberal Supreme Court Justice as everyone had a stake in the continuation or reversal of the Roe vs. Wade?

New Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch clerked under Justice Kennedy and was his personal choice as his replacement.

So much so, part of the deal with Kennedy to step down eventually was to nominate Gorsuch first with Scalia's death.

Then to make things look less suspicious, he would eventually step down when told by the GOP, to put pressure on whatever conservative political agenda needed assistance in the near future.

Well that future is here and now obviously.

We understand that the restored Republic has leaked Kennedy's retirement news, so the question is does this favor or hurt Trump while he's fighting for his political life?

Scalia' death sure helped him get elected. But at this stage, with all the Russian collusion/impeachment/emoluments law suit talk going on--its believed this next Supreme Court nomination actually hurts Trump because his approval ratings are so low nobody trusts him with the country's Supreme Court nomination.

That one was carried out with precision planning and with certainly of how a nervous public would react.

Now did Obama coordinate the Supreme Court Justice replacement news timing? Was it Ryan? Maybe Obama and Ryan working in tandem to ensure a 7-2 conservative court majority moving forward when liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg retires (which is shortly because she's 84 in rapidly declining health) as well as liberal Justice Stephen Breyer, 78.

https://www.google.com/amp/www.ibtimes.com/supreme-court-justices-retirement-next-president-donald-trump-could-appoint-four-new-2453781%3Famp%3D1

Just notice how they're stacking all this bad news stop more bad news for Trump as to ever so slowly yet relentlessly remove it from power without appearing as if it was intended or God forbid "pre-planned."

Nothing could be further from the truth, folks. The restoration of Republic is working according to plan and like clockwork--which includes our RV--just like Putin, Xi, Obama and the Elders planned years earlier.

This also means we're much closer to our blessing than you can imagine.

God is with us.

Psychologist Dr. Melanie Joy and the Secret Reason we Eat Meat



Source: Truth Theory | by Amanda Froelich

Why do humans eat meat? If you ask the average Joe, they'll tell you it's because meat tastes good. If you ask Dr. Melanie Joy, however, who has been studying the psychological drive behind eating meat for decades, she'll give you a much darker — albeit interesting — answer. As EducateInspireChange reports, Dr. Joy believes humans eat meat due to the long-engrained ideology of carnism, versus veganism.

"Carnism is a dominant ideology, which means it's embedded deeply in society to the point that it's considered 'just the way things are,'" Joy explained. "But just because something isn't recognized or is viewed as 'how things are' doesn't mean they don't exist. Racism wasn't recognized as a problem or ideology at a point in history but that doesn't mean it didn't exist. It [carnism] has just been around for so long that it's taken for granted."

Referring to kids eating chicken wings in her example, she added: "When we're born into a world with a dominant ideology, we can't help but see the world through that lens. There are people in this world who absolutely need to eat meat because geographically or socially, that's where they are. Most people, though, have a choice when it comes to eating animals, they're just not aware of it because they're blinded by the ideology."

Watch the animated video below:



The psychologist explains that one of the methods which perpetuates carnism is keeping the process of slaughter and processing out of sight. When cows, chickens, pigs and other livestock are milked, butchered, or kept in tiny crates away from the public's eye, it remains easy to keep the populace ignorant about what takes place in modern-day agricultural factories.

During her lesson, Joy presented a few examples that stamp out the notion that carnism is "right" or "intelligent." For instance, she shared that an average pig has the intelligence of a 3-year-old human being. She also relayed that chickens are able to distinguish between 100 different faces of members of their species — they also have about 30 different calls to signal types of threats. Additionally, she explained that scientists have determined that certain fish have intelligence and pain receptors; this is why in some places in the world, it is illegal to keep fish in small bowls or to boil lobsters alive.

Joy added that agro-businesses go to great lengths to keep the public ignorant about how violent and cruel the process of making meat actually is. Like Paul McCartney said, "If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian." Joy's ultimate goal is to prompt people to acknowledge that there is, in fact, an ideology. She elaborates on this in her TEDX Talk, "Beyond Carnism and Toward Rational, Authentic Food Choices," which has become one of the top one percent most viewed talks of all time.

This Salt Water Battery Won’t Corrode -- Can Power your Home for 10 Years

This Salt Water Battery Won't Corrode And Can Power Your Home For 10 Years


Every day, new innovations which have profound implications due to their sustainability factors are being unveiled. One of the most recent is a salt water battery that is no bigger than a dishwasher yet can power your home for years.

According to CNBC, Aquion Energy developed a sustainable off-grid solar battery, powered by Aspen Solar batteries, that can handle daily use and requires zero maintenance. Because the batteries can handle up to 3,000 full cycles, or 3,000 days and nights, they can literally power one's home for over 10 years.

Rather than use two lead plates submerged in a solution of sulfuric acid and water to generate energy, the salt water batteries use a solution of salt water. In result, they are far better for the environment and can last an astonishing amount of time. Best of all, the batteries have no chemicals to leak and will not corrode. It's because Aspen Solar Batteries have been proven to be sustainable that they are the first to ever receive the Cradle to Cradle Certification™.

The batteries, which will operate during power outages, will cost a consumer $1,000 to $3,000. At present, 10 dealers in the United States are selling the salt water batteries. As The Homestead Guru explains, the batteries' main competition are lithium ion batteries that are composed of toxic materials and pollute the environment. Lithium ion batteries are also flammable, whereas the Aspen Solar Battery is not. In fact, the company even tried to set its batteries on fire, which you can watch below:

The new design for the batteries allows a homeowner to discharge the output down to 90%. This ensures all the power is harnessed and none goes to waste. In contrast, lead batteries are only able to be discharged to 50%. If you're interested in purchasing a salt water battery, visit Aquion's website.

Court Finds Approval of Dakota Access Pipeline Violated the Law


Source: Truth Theory | by Amanda Froelich

In April of 2016, hundreds of people gathered near Cannon Ball, North Dakota, to protest the development of the four-state Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL). Supporters of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe proclaimed that the pipeline's development crossed through land promised to the Native American tribe centuries before, and that it could potentially contaminate the Missouri river. Until December 4, 2017, when the U.S. Army Corps denied an easement to the parent company of the project, Dakota Energy Transfers, did thousands of activists gather on the plains in solidarity.

Unfortunately, shortly after President Trump took office, the DAPL was given the green light and construction resumed. Even before it was fully online, a leak occurred, solidifying activists' concern about its development. Nonetheless, there was little anyone could do. The heavy feelings of failure recently lifted, however, due to a small victory, as a federal judge recently ruled that the federal permits authorizing the pipeline to cross the Missouri river near the Standing Rock reservation violated the law in certain respects.

Stand With Standing Rock reports that in a 91-page decision, Judge James boasberg wrote that "the Court agrees that [the Corps] did not adequately consider the impacts of an oil spill on fishing rights, hunting rights, or environmental justice, or the degree to which the pipeline's effects are likely to be highly controversial." It was not determined by the Court whether or not the pipeline operations should be shut off. Judge Boasberg did request additional briefing on the subject and a status conference for the following week, however.

Following the development, Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault II said, "This is a major victory for the Tribe and we commend the courts for upholding the law and doing the right thing. The previous administration painstakingly considered the impacts of this pipeline, and President Trump hastily dismissed these careful environmental considerations in favor of political and personal interests. We applaud the courts for protecting our laws and regulations from undue political influence and will ask the Court to shut down pipeline operations immediately."

The Tribe, represented by the nonprofit environmental law firm Earthjustice, has filed a lawsuit which challenges the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' decision for issuing a permit for the pipeline. The opposition argues that its construction violates several environmental laws.

"This decision marks an important turning point. Until now, the rights of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe have been disregarded by the builders of the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Trump administration—prompting a well-deserved global outcry," said Earthjustice attorney Jan Hasselman. "The federal courts have stepped in where our political systems have failed to protect the rights of Native communities."

Though the Court did rule that the federal permits authorizing the DAPL to cross the Missouri river did violate the law, it ruled against the Tribe on several other issues, such as the reversal allowing the pipeline complied with the law in certain respects.

Elon Musk Gives Funding for a Project to Educate 260 Million Children in Africa

Elon Musk is recognised for many revolutionary ideas, but his new investment could really move development forwards into a positive future for the young generation.

He is currently funding a project called the Global Learning XPRIZE, which is helping children in Tanzania to learn to read and write. With a $15 million investment, Musk is hoping to progress the teaching of skills that are considered basic in many parts of the developed world, such as reading, writing and arithmetic, to around 260 million children who would otherwise not be able to access these skills throughout their life.

According to recent reports, the humanitarian project is planning on running throughout 150 villages across Tanzania, where each one will be given Pixel C tablets, which have been provided by Google. This software has been specially designed by a variety of teams for the XPrize competition, and aims to aid children between the ages of seven to ten in their formal education.

X-PRIZE have chosen 11 semi-finalist software creators from 198 entrants back in 2014. The semi-finalists are currently developing their unique software in the hope of winning the overall competition in September, where five finalists will be chosen and awarded with a sum of $1 million, before their software is taken to be tested in Tanzania.

Further to this, a period of 18 months of software testing in Tanzania will commence, and whichever educational tools see the most improvement in the children studying, compared to a control group, will then win $10 million.

The children taking part in the live testing of the revolutionary software have never received any teaching before, and all live very far from any schools, meaning that formal education would otherwise have been impossible for them.
