Jessica Alba Has 1GOAL For Children

Jessica Alba Has 1GOAL For Children

Jessica Alba shows who’s #1 while posing with a group of children during a news conference to discuss the 1GOAL campaign at the Rayburn House Office Building on Wednesday (April 21) in Washington, D.C.

The 28-year-old actress said, “Incredible day on [Capitol] Hill with [NY Congresswoman] Nita Lowey to announce Education for All Act so all children can go to school.” (1GOAL hopes to provide education to all children.)

Last month, Jessica went on a trip with 1GOAL to Senegal, Ghana, Mozambique and Kenya.

    Sometimes I wonder if Jessica Alba knows anything about the causes she supports. For instance I’m relatively confident that if you question Angelina Jolie about her humanitarian quests, she would be knowledge in her answers, instead of providing rehearsed answers. I would actually be able to learn something. But if someone was to question Alba in depth, would she be able to answer the questions?

    I strongly suspect that Alba memorizes the literature she is given like she does her lines.

    She could stand to gain around 5 lbs.

  • ????

    What do you guess she weighs?

  • terra

    Is this really a good cause for someone with 12th grade education? I think not.

  • Janine

    Does it really matter what her background is or what she thinks?.. As long as she’s activelyy trying to change something her actions speak loudly!
    Also
    @#4 ..what’s that got to do with anything? would it be better if she had no education at all?
    Or if she had graduated from college?

  • mw

    @#1
    I couldn’t agree more. Jolie is always articulate and well informed. Alba, on the other hand, suffers from foot in mouth disease. This is just another photo op for her.

  • Corbyn

    @5 Janine
    it’s hypocritical for a ditz like Jessica to be speaking out about education. her actions speak nothing – this is a PR move. and what do you mean “if she had no education at all”? school is mandatory here. the problem is that she never got any education beyond what is mandatory so it’s clearly a low priority for her.

  • xxx

    Funny that she’s promoting education when she didn’t have one herself. Oh, the irony.

  • lola

    Jessica is not a good enough actress to pull off looking knowledgeable and intelligent. Go back to staging bikini shots for the paps and leave the activism to people like Angelina.

  • lol

    @commonsense: wow! jessica you are great! so young and already supporting charity! don’t pay attention to angelina’s fans they hate EVERY female that is doing positive in the world! continue the work so the CHILDREN lives will improve. thank you.

  • lol

    @lola: @lola: so you are saying that angelina’s charity is an act? sad, charity isn’t about acting, smarts it is about giving and guess what… everyone can give something! the more you do public speaking the better you get! go back and look at hiliary clinton, carolyn kennedy and others…. your world might be angelina however these children need a voice and lucky they have jessica to speak and make us aware. charity isn’t a competition it is about helping, making people aware and for over thousands of years plenty of people have carried on before and will afer angelina. however, i am glad that angelina does too! the more the better….not a competition… sad, angie’s fans … can’t see beyond hate and jealous!!!!!!

  • lol

    @commonsense: at jessica’s age – jolie was running around with a married man nicolas cage or timothy hutton or doing drugs so don’t put others down when your girl didn’t even know the word charity at jessica’s age! be happy they both are givers now!

  • lol

    @terra: what is jolie’s education level? charity is wonderful cause period – i really don’t think you need an education to know that… but i guess some…..

  • lol

    @mw: angelina’s fan should know about photo ops! lol

  • Rocky

    @commonsense:

    I think she does. I also think it’s unfair to speak about things you and I don’t know anything about. I’m sure Angie had to read and learn about the causes she was interested in before she gave her name and face to them. Angie is also ‘hands on’ and wanted to see things up close and personal to be document and return to UN with her findings. Anyone who gives a hand – even by showing up to get the word out to others — is a good person.

  • Rocky

    @lol:

    ITA! Let’s stop comparing people and just speak of the things the ‘individual’ is doing. This is a post on Alba.

  • Rocky

    I’M A DIE HARD ANGIE FAN, BUT SOME OF YOU PEOPLE ARE SO STUPID! STOP BRINING ANGIE INTO THIS AND JUST DEAL WITH WHAT ALBA IS TRYING TO DO AND PROMOTE. WHAT A BUNCH OF ASSES SOME OF YOU PEOPLE ARE!!

    @lol
    Stop leaving positive comments about yourself Jessica, or at least have Cash proofread them first, like he does all your “writing”. Also, I’m not a big fan of Jolie but I think she went to NYU Film School.

  • Sarah

    We have a young man in our town here in New Orleans who has cancer, he’s in remission right now, thank God. He’s in sixth grade and has been collecting money and toys for children in hospitals since he was five years old. You don’t need a ‘higher’ education to have a heart and to try and help others. I find alot of the comments here offensive and downright awful. Helping others comes from the heart — whether you’re a sixth grade student or a CEO of a major cooperation. Some of you should be downright ashamed of yourselves.

  • Janine

    @ #5 cut the crap… if at least ur arguement would make any sense…
    She went to school for twelve years and then took up acting because she loves it, that doesnt mean she doesnt value education?
    And what she’s promoting is basic ed… like reading and writing and basic maths. She wants the children to be able to freely decide upon their future..just as she did
    That is the point of this entire campaign

  • claudia

    @21
    “She went to school for twelve years and then took up acting because she loves it”

    Too bad nobody loves her acting. Had she decided to study acting, maybe she wouldn’t be so painfully awful at it.

    @20
    Whom you should be offended by is vapid celebrities attaching themselves to valid causes they know nothing about and using it as a vehicle to promote themselves.

  • QueenOfTrashin

    “Gee. I wasn’t aware that children in America were prevented from attending school. Well. You learn something new everyday.”, she said, facetiously.

  • doodieman

    OK,how much do you guys think she got paid to turn up.

  • lol

    @sam: so? that is a higher level of education! i am not against angelina however you are a jolie fan because if you were not what i said wouldn’t have bother you to the point of calling me jessica! lol!

  • lol

    @doodieman: the same amount jolie gets

  • lol

    @claudia: i love jessica and her acting!

  • lol

    @QueenOfTrashin: look at jolie children! they are a high price carnival. – not really – it is just how mean spirits you are! they are home schooled – by the way there are a lot of children who don’t go to school the way they should because of parents, peer pressure and etc.

  • ++Logan++

    Always criticizing.

    You know Charity was around even before Angelina Jolie was born, she didn’t invent it, and she is not the only one allowed to do it. Give me a break.

    THE EQUAL RIGHTS OF A CHILD TO AN EDUCATION
    WITHIN A GLOBAL KNOWLEDGED BASED, INFORMATION SOCIETY
    IRRESPECTIVE OF THEIR, or THIER FAMILY’s
    SEX, COLOR, CREED, NATIONALITY OR SOCIAL/ FINANCIAL STANDING

    This paper argues the right of every child to have equal access to an education irrespective of his or her colour, creed, nationality, ethnicity or social & financial status so he or she may obtain gainful employment and contribute to the growth of his or her society in the 21st century. Within a knowledge based global society the basic tools of education must include educational & operational softwares.
    The interpretation of Intellectual Property Laws today is a morally unjust construal of the law and must be immediately revisited so as to allow the poor children of our global societies their human right to an equal education.
    This paper seeks to rally all those who seek equality for all the children of the world, irrespective of their sex, colour, creed, nationality, or financial standing, to join the fight against those who seek only riches, by economically coercing poor & developing nations to enforce their immoral interpretations of the Intellectual Property Laws.
    UNITED NATIONS HUMAN RIGHTS
    Article 1.
    • All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.
    The Declaration of the Rights of the Child
    1. The child must be given the means requisite for its normal development, both materially and spiritually.
    2. The child that is hungry must be fed, the child that is sick must be nursed, the child that is backward must be helped, the delinquent child must be reclaimed, and the orphan and the waif must be sheltered and secured.
    3. The child must be the first to receive relief in times of distress.
    4. The child must be put in a position to earn a livelihood, and must be protected against every form of exploitation.
    5. The child must be brought up in the consciousness that its talents must be devoted to the service of its fellow men.
    Surely ‘The United Nations Human Rights’ & ‘The Declaration of the Rights of the Child’ leave no doubt that it is the right of every child to have equal access to education, irrespective of his or her, colour, creed, nationality, ethnicity, age or financial status.
    Knowledge now forms a major component of all human activity, economic, social & cultural and has become the major creative force of all developed societies, hence creating new ‘Knowledge Based’ societies & economies. Knowledge is gained from access to education, hence both are essential elements for the development of all children, societies, countries, economies & humanity.
    Knowledge societies are not a new occurrence. Fishermen have long shared the knowledge of predicting the weather to their community and this knowledge gets added to the social capital of the community. What is new is that,
    • With current technologies, knowledge societies need not be constrained by geographic proximity
    • Current technology offers much more possibilities for sharing, archiving and retrieving knowledge
    • Knowledge has become the most important capital in the present age, and hence the success of any society lies in harnessing it.
    All governments & individuals who truly believe in Human & Child Rights & the equality of all, must surely also believe in providing equal access to all information & tools required for their education, irrespective of a child’s, colour, creed, nationality, religion, ethnicity, age or financial status. Hence the tools & information required for a child’s education should not be withheld for the monetary gain of a few. Humanity can never allow a global society to develop that promotes the haves & have nots of a basic education.
    In this high tech, computerised, interconnect world of the 21st century, both filled & reliant on high speed access to information no one country, state, city, community or village can hope to compete on equal footing with others unless their children have equal access to the programs & softwares that all others enjoy as part of their education & vocational training.
    All men & women, have but their labour to give, or trade in return for the basic necessities of life, of which education is one. A man or woman from a developing country is not a lesser man or woman than that of one from a developed country. Their labour has always afforded them the basic necessities of life within their own communities because their government ensures the cost of the basic necessities of life are commensurate with the average weekly income of their country. The advent of a ‘Global Economy’ has however strained this basic principle of human existence for the poorer nations & people..
    Software Piracy does not occur because the populations of poorer, or developing countries are inherently criminals. It occurs because the young people of these developing countries need to gain an education tha

    Software Piracy does not occur because the populations of poorer, or developing countries are inherently criminals. It occurs because the young people of these developing countries need to gain an education that their families can no longer afford, because of the exorbitant costs of ‘legal copies’ of these very necessary educational software programs.
    In 2009 the average weekly wage of an American is approximately $950 / week or 49,483 /annum
    The cost of Microsoft Office is $499 (December 2009)
    This equates to a parent who is earning $23.70 / hour, paying the equivalent of 21 hours of their labour ( approx 3 days) to buy an essential educational tool for their child’s education .
    In Vietnam the average weekly wage is $25 / week ,or $1,300 / annum
    The cost of Microsoft Office is $499
    This equates to a parent who is earning $0.62 / hour paying the equivalent of 804 hours (approx 100 days) of their labour to buy an essential educational tool for their child’s education .
    We stated earlier that all workers have but their labour to give or trade for the necessities of life. So with that in mind if we were to reverse the situation for American workers, by developing a proportionate cost for Microsoft Office based upon their hours of labour, we would find that they would need to pay $19,050, (equivalent to 804 hours of labour,). If this was the retail price of Microsoft Office in America we would surely expect to see a Software Piracy Industry emerge in America similar to that of which we presently see in developing countries. Not because American children over night had suddenly become criminals, but because the cost of the tools needed for an education had suddenly exceeded their parent’s ability to buy.
    Intellectual Property Laws are meant to protect the rights of an author to his or her developed intellectual works from being copied. They should never be misinterpreted or misused to protect his or her rights to riches, by way of exploitation or disregard of the basic human rights of all.
    Equal rights must not be idle worlds of the rich, or already haves. The right of every child to shelter, food, safety & education are fundamental human rights, far outweighing economic or intellectual property rights which would not be considered fundamental Human Rights by any moral, thinking human being.
    Within a global, economic society the only way to achieve equal rights & access for all to an education & job, is to put in place a ‘Global Index System’ based upon the average salary of a country.
    A simple example of this would be to allot America the base index of ‘1’. Hence ‘1’ would equal the average annual wage of America.
    If in 2009 America’s average salary is $49,483.00 then this number will become the base (1) for all other index calculations.
    If Australia’s average salary is $42,019 then its index would be 0.84 (42,019 divided by 49,483 = 0.84)
    If Vietnam’s average salary is $1,300 then its index would be 0.0262. (1,300 divided by 49,483 = 0.0262)
    The Intellectual Property Rights of any Educational or Vocational software would then be valued, within any country, by taking the price the software is retailing for in America and multiplying it by that country’s index. (These indexes would be set by a reputable organisation such as the World Trade Organisation (WTO) or United Nations (UN) and would be updated each year.)
    Hence for equality of access by the children of Vietnam to Microsoft Office the price should be the price of Microsoft Office ($499) multiplied by Vietnam’s index of ( 0.0262) which means for equality of access the sale price for Microsoft Office should be $13.07.
    If developing countries enforce present interpretations of Intellectual Property Laws, they are ensuring that their countries will forever remain developing nations by dramatically impeding the young peoples of their countries from ever gaining the necessary education that will allow them to compete equally within the global economy, as computer literacy & skills in the 21st century are just as important as literacy itself.
    If developed governments, global organisations or software companies believe that a moratorium on prosecutions for the use of pirated software is wrong then maybe they need to start implementing an interim scheme which would see Microsoft Office retailing in the United States for $19,000. This would be another way of achieving equality for all the young of the world in the short term.
