The USD 95,000 project "Más Conocimiento" (More Knowledge), approved by the Ecuadorian government in March 2016, provides an answer to one of Ecuador's greatest challenges: improving education at the secondary and university level. The concept of the project is based on getAbstract, the world's largest online library for summaries of business books and articles, video talks, economic reports and classics. Teachers and high-achieving students from the community of Guayaquil received access to getAbstract already in 2016. In 2017, the project was opened up to faculty and students at four public universities, expanding the number of licenses to 100,000. Guayaquil is the first municipality in Ecuador to use getAbstract to deliver high-quality knowledge, while improving its technological infrastructure and increasing online connectivity for the benefit of its citizens.

Did Attorney Karl Schucht from Bonn lie to members of Parliament in 2013?
On 15.2.2018 at 14:30 hrs, a hearing will take place at the Cologne Higher Regional Court, the significance of which is greater than appears at first sight. The proceedings will shed light on collusion between the manufacturing company Grünenthal, the Contergan Foundation and the Federal Family Affairs Ministry which may have been going on for decades, hidden from public view. At the same time, the case again raises the question of whether, in the handling of the Contergan (thalidomide) scandal, the manufacturer was favoured by the exercise of political influence against the interests of Contergan victims. Depending on the answers that emerge, it could be that the whole Contergan case must be re-opened.
