I am currently in Singapore, attending the Global Young Scientists Summit (GYSS@one-north), a meeting of nearly 300 scientists aged 35 and under from around the world.
From the exchange of ideas among meeting professionals at IMEX in Frankfurt, to powerful collaborations crossing international waters like at the International AIDS Conference, there is no limit to how conventions can change our professional and personal lives, and the course of history.
So many histories, cultures, customs, and languages have remained in existence because of community radio stations.
Before I participated in PCMA's Independent Planner Think Tank, I thought "tank" might take on a different meaning. Not a shark tank, but maybe more like an aquarium where the fish warily circle each other.
