– John Lennon and the film Nowhere Boy. Please see also the categories at the end of the text.

Lennon. A page in the website of Pike Murdy about John Lennon.

26.12.09 – The “Godfather of Soul”. The Observer and James Brown. The very famous soul singer was laid to rest and there were at the ceremony – as I was informed by the online version of the Sunday newspaper – the famous rapper MC Hammer and the Rev Jesse Jackson. Other tags and categories at the end of this text or you may vote Brown’s or MC Hammer’s songs above.

– James Brown and a website, Kikachannel.tv – a video. I hope all is true.

Michael Jackson and… For a text referring to Brown, Chaka Khan and Reverend Al Sharpton, please click, instead, on the words “soul singer” in the next lines to go to an article by BBC News. Tim Neilson reported for this television service in a video with Michael Jackson and more. Harlem and the Apollo Theater.

James Brown and tourism. Augusta, Georgia, James Brown and tourism.

01.12.2008 I would like to remember here in this blog the soul singer James Brown who died on Christmas Day on 2006. The “Godfather of Soul” was 73 and made his debut at a venue. Moreover, the director Spike Lee would have thought of making a film about him and Brown would have approved the use of his own music on the soundtrack. The film should be directed in this year and the project should be overseen by the Oscar-winning producer of A beautiful Mind Brian Grazer.

There’s Nothin’ by the singer Sean Kingston featuring The DEY and Juelz Santana

Rap in French by another singer, Big Aly, and there is an “advertising” for an auto.

Soon as I get Home by Bobby Valentino (the sound is not very good).

Homosexuality, Pope Benedict XVI, London and Aina Khan

Save BBC Asian Network & BBC 6music

BBC Asian Network

Family lawyer Aina Khan talking about divorce and separation to Nihal on BBC Asian Network – page.

18.09.10 – Pope Benedict XVI. The pope and BBC Asian Network: Gagan Grewal’s programme (read and listen), Nihal (read and listen, also about saris and Asians and the media), Sanjay Sharma and Hindi/Urdu Programme (read and listen, also on the situation in Kashmir).

– Shin & Bollywood Pandits live session – please watch this video.

Homosexuality and the Pope. Rozina Sini and Asian Network Report (read and listen, a second, a third – also about homosexuality – and a fourth episode, a fifth one with football, Arsenal and Chelsea, a sixth with Manchester United, France and the veil and a seventh episode with Bollywood).

The Pope, London, homosexuality and more. Catholic church is not only child abuse scandals, but, anyway, there was a protest against the Pope in Central London with comedian Al Murray and the atheist Richard Dawkins about abuses, homosexuality, condoms and women’s rights.

03.04.10 – An Easter. Happy Easter for you and I would like to ask you how your Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday have been.

Child abuse scandals and allegations by victims of paedophile priests. Unfortunately, I have read a report in the Observer by Tom Kington and Henry McDonald about pope Benedikt XVI, paedophile priests and child abuse scandals.

Asia, Vermont, the UK and cartoons


Mail Sorting, Bureau of Red Tape and Work Cartoons by Reader’s Digest, Dan Reynolds and Dave Carpenter. Other cartoons by Eckstein, Le Lievre, Schwadron and Harris and a video album of mine about this magazine.

Douglas Alexander, Ed Balls, Mike Smithson and SNP in an article by Nick Cohen for the Observer, but, above all, two sentences like

In foreign policy, too few people again realise that the Liberal Democrats are not true internationalists but a Fortress Europe party indifferent to the needs of those suffering beyond the EU’s walls. Thus they opposed the second Iraq war for good reasons, but offered no support to Iraqi liberals and democrats hoping for something better after 30 years of unremitting tyranny.

But also in this article Evan Harris and Norman Lamb are quoted as well as Vince Cable and the Institute for Fiscal Studies.

Some constituencies and the general election. Candidates in Dagenham and Rainham, Bethnal Green and Bow, Poplar and Limehouse, Stoke-on-Trent Central and Lancashire West.

But also in Aberavon (victory for Hywel Francis), Aberdeen South (victory for Anne Begg) and North (victory for Frank Doran), Aberdeenshire West and Kincardine (victory for Robert Smith), Belfast South, Birmingham Hall Green, Bournemouth West, Bristol North West, Cardiff South and Penarth, Coventry North West, Cornwall South East, Croydon North, Derby South, Devon East, Dorset South, Ealing North, Edinburgh South, Exeter, Glasgow North, Greenwich and Woolwich, Guildford, Hammersmith, Hull East, Inverness, Nairn, Badenoch and Strathspey, Ipswich, Isle of Wight, Kensington, Leeds East, Leicester South, Liverpool Walton, Luton North, Manchester Central, Newcastle upon Tyne Central, Oxford East, Nottingham East, Reading East, Sheffield Brightside and Hillsborough, Slough, Somerset North, Southampton Itchen, Stratford-on-Avon, Tottenham, Wimbledon and Windsor.

Below something else about Iraq or something else that might not be of interest for you.

31.03.10 – Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars and Vermont. The Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars will be on tour on April 7 at the Higher Ground in Burlington, United States.

Refugees and The Refugee Day. Have you taken part today – or, let’s write in another way, will you take part – to the World Refugee Day? Here’s an article by Deutsche Welle with particulars about the organisation refunited.org, Claus-Ulrich Proelss, the head of the non-government organization Cologne Refugee Council, and Ulrich Austermuehle from the Red Cross tracing service in Bonn.

The Huffington Post, RI (Refugees International), Iraq and the “aftermath” of the Civil War. The author, Luis Carlos Montalván, writes: “It looks as though the US response to the Iraqi refugee problem has come up wanting, on every front”.

– Survivors of war and the Reader’s Digest.

An excerpt from this text is also what I write now: “But Lincoln was struck down the following month and the Bureau was officially abolished in 1872. Consequently, from 1877 to 1965, States and localities enacted “Jim Crow laws” thereby stifling Lincoln’s vision of assisting the refugees (mostly former slaves). It would take 99 years for the US Civil Rights Act of 1964 to renew what Lincoln began”. Have a nice reading…

A refugee and a famous actress

Is effective the work of a goodwill ambassador? Anyway, there would be areas who are now out of bounds for aid troops in Afghanistan…

Fire, migrants and a protest. Fire in the island of Lampedusa after a protest by some illegal immigrants.

The strong determination not to return home. The fire took place at an Italian refugee centre in an island located between the rest of Sicily – near the town of Agrigento – and the North African coasts of  Libya.
