Great experience that has changed my perspective of the world and my role in it. I would like to take this opportunity to thank professor Roth for taking on this course and offering it to everyone.

Makes you think critically about everyones role in changing the world with concrete actions. We should not take things for granted or think that it is someone else's responsibility.

El curso fue fantástico pero quiero notificar que en más de una oportunidad mis compañeros me han calificado bajo por no saber el idioma en el que esta escrita mi entrega o porque no saben español, lo cual me parece muy injusto. No pido que aprendan español pero creo que todos tenemos Google Translate a la mano y yo personalmente me he tomado el tiempo de traducir trabajos que estaban en ingles para poder calificarlos, pero que ellos no lo hagan y pongan un cero sin ni siquiera preocuparse por mi ensayo me parece una muestra de la poca importancia que le daban al curso y a mi trabajo, la verdad muy irracional de su parte.

A little bit outdated, but still very valuable lessons and frameworks for thinking about tackling the world's most pressing problems. I found many of the readings and videos (particularly the snippets from the Social Good Summit) to be very interesting and moving. I would have loved a different, more reflective and holistic final essay prompt—but overall, I enjoyed this six-week journey and feel better equipped to talk about impact and change with others.

T​he course has tons of great information, but I would have appreciated a more extensive examination of the often deleterious effects to "developing" countries of the conditions imposed upon and required by the World Bank, IMF, et al., as part and parcel of their "aid" packages.

overall, interesting concepts and discussions. the videos and interviews are far too long. Could easily be reduced by 25% without losing the narrative. the course is clearly more than a few years old and needs updating - for example, there are mentions of how strange online video tools are, which are now generally commonplace. I also found the instructor to be very distracting - he often spoke overtop of people, and I found his tone quite patronizing. Unfortunately that tone overshadows the intent of the course.

I cannot edit task 5 I'm sorry. I would say that women and men are equally important if we work in a team.

Marie Curie was born in Varsovia in 1867 and she was a physicist and a polish chemist with French nationality, that was a pioneer in the field of radioactivity. She was the first person to receive two Nobel prices in different research fields, in physics and in chemist. She also was the first woman to receive two Nobel prices in different research fields, in physics and in chemist. She also was the first woman to hold the position as university professor in the University of Paris [1].

She had a very humble childhood, cause her parents had lost all their belongings and many of their money while the wars of nationalist independence in that time. Then, Marie and her four brothers had a very difficult times and a very difficult survival tendency to go ahead in life. Marie and her sister Helena had so difficult time to the point to attend hidden lectures on Polish culture.

By that so difficult childhood, Marie had problems of depression when she was adolescent, depressions that she managed to overcome with long stages in the rural environment of their parents with some of their relatives.

When she was young, she managed to reach an agreement with her sister Bronislawa, they went to help each other funding’s with their studies. First, it was Bronislawa who would travel to Paris to study medicine and receive the financial support of Marie, that was working as a face-to-face home doors professor in Varsóvia.

After two years, Bronislawa that already had a better position in Paris, invited her sister Marie to travel with her to Paris. However, Marie didn’t accept the proposal, because they didn’t have enough money to pay everything. Along all this time, Marie continued to study by her own account, and started her scientific research studies in a chemist lab in the center of Varsovia.

Finally, in the year 1891, Marie Curie went to France, where she went for a while with her sister and continued with her studies in physics, chemist and math in the University of Paris. Despite all this, at that time, Marie had to study the French language.

In 1894, Marie met Pierre Curie, who was instructor of the National School of Physics and Industrial Chemist at Paris. Their shared passion for science made that these two scientists, that were on the point to collaborate with a very hard passion, were attracted to each other, and started a romantic relation.

This story of Marie from that moment and ahead is much better known. She was always working with her research, that most of the times put her life and the one of Pierre in danger, thus leading them to have many health problems. They got married, and Marie did always many great strong efforts in the cultural transmission of the polish language to her daughters, one of them, Irene, continued the work with the research of her parents, and received the Nobel prize in 1935.

At that time, most of the women had much more difficulties in having a life as scientists. As a final comment, I would only like to say that in 1903 Marie and Pierre Curie received the Nobel prize for the discovering of radiation, at the beginning, the committee only wanted to give the award to Pierre. At that moment, Pierre Curie said that he wouldn’t accept the prize at least Marie would go along with him to the celebration.

And to say more, in the French science society of the time, Marie usually found many opposition, simply for being a woman, and had to afford some other scandal and persecutions. In 1911, Marie received her second Nobel price, for her contributions, that at that time led to the discovering of the two new chemical elements, Radius and Polonius. This fact had also the effect to liberate Marie of many of the stupidities of her enemies.

This time I didn’t use Google translator. I apologize for my mixed Sioux Gypsy Native American English Style.

I found the comments of Frederique Apffel-Marglin really offensive and misleading, this has a political bias with false statements about the green revolution.
