Former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger donate the initial funds for the “think tank” institute to get started. You can read below and watch the video to hear more about what it will intend to do and focus upon. Schwarzenegger is a “fellow” here with USC and he has an honorary doctorate. Arnold the professor now:) They are going to bring the brightest minds to the institute and time will tell what they hope to solve. Healthcare and public wellness is right on the list.
Students will also be able to become “fellows” and will have access to present their ideas to Schwarzenegger and other world and US leaders. Leaders are supposed to put people over politics…I’m for that as if you watch the news at any given day, it sucks. I am anxious to see if they can make a dent in political reform…better know some math and formulas is all I can say as that’s what’s running everything and it swoops around Congress every day and they still miss it. If this think tank can help out with lessening the Attacks of the Killer Algorithms, that would be great. I’ll add the link here to the 35 posts I have with every day attacks that directly have impact on what the institute intends to work on.

Think tanks won’t do much unless we get the math and code straightened out and have some “algorithmic centric laws” to do that. We don’t have that talent in Congress right now sadly and they seem to give up and go back to their “default” topic of abortions when they get lost. At least they should use some big data capabilities to start with the same numbers but we can’t even get that, so let’s see what the Terminator can accomplish in the five areas they specified. I addressed this issue in Chapter 22 so off to Wall Street the intelligence goes so they can make more money and get richer, while the others in Washington sit on their thumbs. Go get them Arnold! BD

University of Southern California President C. L. Max Nikias and Arnold Schwarzenegger, 38th governor of California, today announced the establishment of the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy, which will be housed in the USC Price School of Public Policy.
The new institute's bipartisan Board of Advisors includes international leaders in business, public service and education. Initial members include Henry Cisneros, who as San Antonio's mayor became the first Hispanic-American mayor of a major U.S. city and was appointed by President Bill Clinton as secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development; Vicente Fox, who served as president of Mexico from 2000 to 2006; Rajendra Kumar Pachauri, chair of the Nobel Peace Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change; George Shultz, economist and statesman who served as U.S. Secretary of State from 1982 to 1989; Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann; and Kandeh K. Yumkella, director-general of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization
The USC Schwarzenegger Institute will focus on the responsibility of leaders to transcend partisanship to implement policies that most benefit the people they serve, with five priority areas:
energy and environment
fiscal and economic policy
health and human wellness
The institute will be funded by an initial gift from Schwarzenegger, as well as a commitment to raise an endowment with nonprofit and nonpartisan interests.
