    Abstract:
    Most cases of foodborne illness are never reported to public health authorities. But that doesn’t mean those afflicted suffer in silence. Many people turn to social media to complain and even identify food purveyors they believe are responsible.

    To tap into this rich source of information, city public health departments have begun mining the tweets and online reviews of those possibly sickened by food.

  • Children, ICT and Development: Capturing the potential, meeting the challenges

    Etiquetado:
    Available in http://www.unicef-irc.org/publications/715 Description ICTs are not a technical sphere detached from the complex realities of children’s lives. They are increasingly woven into the very fabric of life, in income-rich and increasingly in income-poor countries. It is clear that if there is no targeted engagement with these socio-technical innovations, they are likely to reinforce existing inequalities. It follows that a focus on children and on greater equity leads to an active and reflective engagement with the potential and challenges of ICT for development, targeting in particular marginalized children. This report serves as a key contribution on which to build informed dialogue and decision making, developed jointly between research, policy and practice.
