Dear Mrs. Narenova:
(1) Many thanks for your prompt response (ATTACHMENT I) to Stuart’s inquiry
(2) My idea is an extension of our project creating Global University System
(GUS)/Siberia with the people of Novosibirsk, Siberia, which is about 900
miles directly north from your Almaty — see;
> (a) (12/02/06) Report on Fact-Finding and Assessment Trip To Create Global
> University System/Siberia (formerly Altai Mir)
> (b) (02/02/07) Workshop of Project Globe CPD and Globe EduHealth Institute and
> Healthcare Project in Altai Region, Siberia, Russia
(3) Pls retrieve my following paper;
> Al-Azab, M. and T. Utsumi, (2007), "Creation of Global University System in
> Egypt (GUS/Egypt)," Paper for "ICT-Learn 2007" conference in Cairo, Egypt,
> September 2 to 4, 2007
>> BTW, I am expecting to meet and discuss with our Siberian colleagues on the
>> further development of their GUS/Siberia at this conference in Cairo.
(4) Should you be interested in creating GUS/Kazakhstan/Almaty, our first
step is to perform my fact-finding and assessment trip to Almaty as
visiting, say, a half dozen or so of higher educational and healthcare
institutions which might be interested in forming it — see the Section IX-A
of this paper.
(5) Pls also visit Section VII-A in the above paper, which tells about our
Quantitative Policy Analysis of Global Socio-Economic-Energy-Environment
Development (GSEEED) Project.
> Pls let me know if you wish to join in this project — see
> <http://preview.tinyurl.com/2mamx2> for its current members.
This project will be centered at the Polytechnic University in Brooklyn —
see our Memorandum Of Understanding (MOU) with them in the following
previous list distribution;
> (05/19/07) MOU between Polytechnic University and GLOSAS/USA
As said in it, President Hultin of the Polytechnic University is a friend of
President Clinton and was a classmate at the Yale University Law School, and
the former Under Secretary of the US Navy. As said in it, he conducted
several war gaming for terrorists attack, and thereby, is very much
interested in this peace gaming project, which term I coined almost three
(6) My intention is to add some of courses on inter-cultural studies,
conflict resolution, and international relations, etc., along with this
project in the near future which courses will be taken by students around
the world via broadband Internet, and then, as an engineer, I also would
like to expand this globally collaborative scheme to have hands-on,
constructivist experiential learning with virtual reality/laboratories to
devise environment where youngsters around the world foster their mutual
friendships and comradeship for attaining global peace.
The main purpose of this project is to make a policy analysis of a gas-pipe
line deployment through the Altai Region to China for energy security — we
are also proposing to deploy a broadband Internet optical fiber line along
this pipe line to extend the existing GLORIAD
<http://preview.tinyurl.com/33yl57> <http://www.gloriad.org/>, which was
initiated by my close friend, Dr. Greg Cole almost a decade ago.
My idea mentioned to Stuart is to extend it to your Almaty along the
railroad from Novosibirsk to Almaty, -- as Bangladesh people has already
done so in their country.
(7) We received a fund from the US Agency for International Development
(USAID) through Eurasia Foundation to conduct our Fact-finding and
Assessment trip to Siberia last fall — which produced our reports mentioned
in Item (2) above.
We visited the New Eurasia Foundation in Moscow to learn that their
president is very much interested in our GUS project, particularly on the
GSEEED project — he often visits Almaty, too.
As said in Section X of the paper in the Item (3) above, we plan to obtain
the Japanese government’s Official Development Assistance (ODA) fund.
Since the Japanese government brought a mission team of about 150
industrialists to your country a few months ago to secure uranium for
nuclear power plants in Japan, the Japanese government may be interested in
our projects, including the deployment of optical fiber line from
Novosibirsk to Almaty.
(8) Should you wish to proceed further, pls condense our paper of Item (3)
above into, say, 4 to 5 pages, as your concept paper — pls emphasize the
importance of e-healthcare/telemedicine, as incorporating some phrases from
Item (2)-(b) above — this is because our Japanese acquaintance (a former
Minister of Foreign Affairs) is keenly interested in supporting telemedicine
because of his background as a medical doctor, and a chairman (or vice
chairman) of Russia/Japan Telemedicine Association (or such name).
Pls send me your draft of the concept paper so that we can work on it
After you approve it (and its budget), we may submit it to the Eurasia
Foundation in Washington, DC (or New Eurasia Foundation in Moscow) so that
we can perform our first step as soon as possible.
