To say that Khan Academy has important lessons to offer is to state the obvious. The Mountain View-based internet teaching institution—which has grown from founder Salman Khan’s individualized YouTube math lessons for his 7th grade niece to a worldwide phenomenon—offers thousands of free, plain-spoken online courses, from algebra to biology. But there are even broader lessons to be taken from the astounding success of Sal Khan, winner of the Manhattan Institute’s $100,000 2014 William E. Simon Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Social Entrepreneurship. Indeed, the lessons extend well beyond education.
4. China will continueefforts to build out C-9 (the top nine universities in China) in the form ofmore than $1 billion new investments in major campuses. Funds will becommitted to attract top faculty, build state-of-the-art facilities, andrecruit the very best students. China will lock into a global war forintelligence, education, and skill.
The story of Khan Academy’s start and growth is dramatic. Sal Khan, New Orleans-born and MIT-educated, was working in the finance industry as a hedge fund analyst when, in 2004, he learned that his niece, Nadia, needed help with algebra. He began sending her his own clear, step-by-step illustrated lectures (Khan himself did not appear) via YouTube. That allowed other web users to use the same lessons. The teaching of Khan—a complete outsider to education or education reform—went viral, ultimately catching the eye of Bill Gates, whom Khan learned was helping his own children with lessons first meant for Nadia. Khan eventually attracted $15 million-plus in philanthropic support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation,

The worker said there were millions of unemployed villagers as talented as he was.

Collins grew up in rural, apartheid-era South Africa in the 1970s. Her childhood inspired her to focus on empowering women living below the poverty line through grassroots efforts. The Wonderbag, which was inspired by watching her grandmother cook with cushions, uses heat retention technology to cook food for 8-12 hours without the need for additional fuel. Collins witnessed the benefits African women received from using Wonderbags, reducing the amount of time they spent collecting firewood. For every bag sold, another is donated to a household in Africa, and in the past four years, the Wonderbags have found themselves in 600,000 African homes. Collins has launched the Wonderbag in the U.S. on Amazon, and hopes to sell the products via other retailers by 2014.

《蓝色茉莉》(Blue Jasmine)：按年代顺序排列，本片属于导演伍迪?艾伦(Woody Allen)自我更新晚期的作品。不过，从艺术角度看，该片算得上是伍迪?艾伦作品中最优秀的喜剧之一。该片的卖点是凯特?布兰切特(Cate Blanchett)的出彩演绎，曾在《欲望号街车》中出演布兰奇?杜布瓦(Blanche DuBois)的凯特?布兰切特这一次出演女主角茉莉，离婚后精神状态有些癫狂。亚历克?鲍德温(Alec Baldwin)在剧中扮演茉莉的丈夫，是一个类似于马多夫(Bernie Madoff)的行骗者。其他人物方面，在经历了欺骗和失望后，莎莉?霍金斯(Sally Hawkins)、安德鲁?戴斯?克莱(Andrew Dice Clay)鲍比?坎纳瓦尔(Bobby Cannavale)以及路易?C.K(Louis C.K.)等人扮演的角色最终都找到了自己的方向。
