HONG KONG — Tuesday night marked one month since the day Hong Kong’s police attacked peaceful pro-democracy protesters with tear gas and pepper spray, inadvertently inspiring thousands more people to occupy the streets for the right to freely elect Hong Kong’s leaders.

On this day in 1969, scientists at UCLA used the interconnected network they called ARPAnet to successfully send a message to their counterparts at Stanford.

 

Today, the Internet and its 60 trillion web pages connect nearly 3 billion people around the world, allowing us to search, chat, watch, read and learn in ways that seemed all but impossible 45 years ago.

Peter Thiel talks fast and he’s deliberate with his words. A man in his position doesn’t want to be misinterpreted.


A conversation with him is full of pregnant pauses because he’s thinking — always thinking — and though it’s clear that he’s fully present in the moment, it’s obvious that there’s a lot swirling through his mind. But when he asks me how my day is going, it feels as if we’ve met before, even though we haven’t.

Some of the most successful and innovative people in the world never finished college. Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg are both dropouts of Harvard University for example.

They both quit early to create Microsoft and Facebook, respectively. Likewise, although he’s no longer with us, Steve Jobs was also a dropout, leaving Reed College prematurely to build the Apple empire. Is dropping out of college the pathway to greatness?

The British Council has just released a report – Postgraduate student mobility trends to 2024 – that forecasts the contributions of 23 source markets to international postgraduate student mobility through 2024. The report also predicts what six destination markets – Australia, Canada, the US, the UK, Germany, and Japan – can expect over the next decade in terms of the levels and sources of inbound graduate enrolment.


India and China are projected to continue to drive postgraduate enrolment growth over the next decade. But the British Council forecasts reflect as well the increasing importance of key markets outside of Asia, including Saudi Arabia, and Nigeria.
