Common Human Values

I am just one of 6.7 billion people. You are just one of an unimaginable number of people. We are all different. We can be special and we can be ordinary. We have different thoughts, different ideas, different religions, we are short, tall, fat, thin, young, old, and everything in-between. It is often easier to talk about what makes us different, than what we all have in common. Do you believe that we all have common values? What are these values? Sometimes we all need reminding. Please leave a comment.

Global Globalisation

We've now added the ability for billion7 users to add comments to this blog so I thought it would be good to have a debate on globalisation. The word global seems to be getting a lot of use these days: Global Warming, Global Economy, Global Trade, Global Communications, and of course our Global Networking Hub™.

Is globalisation a good or a bad thing? If there are bad things about globalisation can it be controlled so that it is only a force for good? Recent financial problems have shown how vulnerable countries can be to global economic swings.

All of the countries in the world have different resources. Ever since human beings have travelled there has been trade between countries. Does global trade lead to a more equal world, or are we becoming more divided?

Nurses Looking For Nursing Jobs

Billion7 has many Nurses registered from all over the world. If you know of any hospitals looking for extra staff then please ask them to search billion7. Since billion7 has been advertised on many nurses have been adding their profiles to billion7. With the average life expectancy increasing in many countries, and of course new babies increasing the world's population to nearly seven billion, nursing skills should always be in hot demand.

Brand New Fully Integrated Billion7 Blog

We are in the process of creating a new billion7 blog. Many social networks have their own blog to let everyone know of any changes or new features to their website. We didn't want to be left out so here it is. Rather than use an existing framework like WordPress, we are writing our own blogging code from scratch. This means our blog will look like a fully integrated part of billion7 and we can make use of our eye catching themes.

At the moment our blog doesn't have all the bells and whistles you'd expect such as adding comments, but we will add this in time. It does have an RSS feed, so you can subscribe to this blog with your favorite RSS reader and be informed when a new blog post is added.

At some point we'd like to use our own blogging software, so that any billion7 member can create their own blog which would be accessed straight from their profile page. They could then customise it with our growing number of theme settings.
