Don't let anyone ever tell you there isn't a nasty element of racism still running deeply through society. On a article about 50 U.S. citizens being evacuated from Haiti. These are a sample of numerous explicit and implicitly racist comments from commentators that were mixed with the usual Hilary is evil wah wah wah. Discourse seems to be based more on lazy, subjective, hasty generalisation and poor reasoning than it does about intellectual discourse and evidencing the facts.

There's a disturbing lack of knowledge or understanding about colonial policies being at the roots of many of the problems of nations, along with ignorance of the chaos caused by Western (mostly U.S) intervention in legitimate sovereign nation's politics to suit their own ends.

Le sigh

In 1999, Davide Bowie sat down for a TV interview with BBC host Jeremy Paxman. Bowie explains that if he were a kid of the 1990s he wouldn’t have become a pop star. Instead, Bowie probably would’ve become obsessed with the internet. Why? According to Bowie, that’s where the potentially interesting—chaotic, nihilistic, and truly rebellious—stuff was really happening.

I haven't been saying a lot on social media lately. Sometimes silence is the best answer I can give. Hopefully 2017 will see me finding my mojo again so my best answers will be with words (of wisdom - I hope).

With the kitchen being out of action since the end of November and the kitchen now been knocked back to the bricks on the wall, I had created a makeshift Kettle station on top of the tumble dryer in the kitchen. However, with no running water in the kitchen and the fridge in the living room, it was predictable that I would forget milk, water etc and have to keep running back and forth between the living room and the kitchen.

So, I set up a kettle station in the living room by the TV. This is much better. Yes I am watching M.A.S.H

Great songwriting tells a story that rips through your chest and grabs your heart. Whether it does this by filling you with joy or pathos, warmth or cold emptiness, it moves you. The power of The Sound of Silence has never failed me.

I now need a hug.

Did you ever get to hear it live? We went to a reunion concert 10-15 years ago. Very awesome.

The pleasure of little kindnesses create ever increasing circles of gratitude. One act of kindness will stay with me much longer than an act of cruelty. We can all make a difference in the everyday actions we take. The little kind things we do when we interact with others, changes society for the better. It is not up to or due to others that the world seems cold, selfish and lonely. It is up to us to make the world inclusive, kind and accepting.

Be the change you wish to see in the world.

We Know What You're Doing...

There are so many exciting things happening on G+ and across the web right now and there are so many challenges demanding our time and attention that wasting time on rubbish should not feature on our horizon. It's a simple equation: Provide value and people will engage. Those who don't but still expect engagement by being extreme or provocative, or extremely provocative, well ... we know what you're doing. :)

The magic and solidarity of celebrating Christmas in Senegal, a 95%-Muslim country.
In Senegal, the intersections between culture and religion are blurry and magical.

Good facilities, friendly and helpful staff and a reasonable price. There is plenty of equipment and the gym is nicely ventilated so you don't overheat, the entire gym is clean and well looked after and the changing facilities good. Sure the showers get a little busy during peak times but you never have to wait long for a shower to be free. For the price you pay you feel you are getting an excellent service I recommend this gym to anyone who is tired of overpriced, stuffy, peak priced gyms. For a refreshing gym that you feel pleased to be using try Pure in Spinningfields. Oh and did I mention most of the classes are included in your membership...bonus.
