The global chaos that the media like to depict — micro-conflicts, mass migration, terrorist bombings and massacres of civilians, with major powers like Russia, Turkey and Trump’s America cynically pursuing their own interests — goes back to the early 1990s. The fall of the Berlin Wall seemed to herald an age of happy globalisation under US auspices, and western intervention in the first Gulf war still fitted the UN framework; but in the 1990s the US attempted to impose new rules. Kosovo, in 1999, was a test, as those pursuing it attempted to establish an official right to interfere in internal affairs. The vision of happy globalisation peaked with the 2011 intervention in Libya, which revealed dangerous contradictions. The international order established in 1945 has faced many crises, but its basis remains the humanist social principles of the Philadelphia conference on social rights (1944) and the San Francisco conference on prohibition of war (1945), which led to … [Read more...] about The end of the UN’s world order ?
The annual Campoverde Open Garden Day will take place on Saturday 26th May, when you will have the opportunity to visit some of the interesting gardens in the village of Pinar de Campoverde. Each year local residents open their gardens for one day to allow other people to visit, view their garden and enjoy a good day out. Now in its third year, the event has welcomed hundreds of visitors to view a variety of different gardens. This year all the gardens will be open from 11am until 4pm to give you the opportunity to visit them all in one day. Refreshments will be available in all the gardens and it is all free; all we ask is that you make a small donation to Campoverde Church. Each of the gardens will be displaying a “Garden Open” Poster outside so they will be easy to find, and all having street parking near by. The gardens are various sizes from very large to small but we are sure you will find something of interest in each of them to give you ideas for your own garden. So … [Read more...] about Campoverde Open Garden Day 2018
The 36-year-old musician rose to fame after finishing as runner-up on 'American Idol' in 2009, and whilst didn't publicly come out as gay until after the talent show had finished, he has insisted he has been "very loudly" open about his sexuality from the age of 18. He said: "I have been gay and out of the closet - very loudly so - since I was 18 and I wasn't in the closet on ['American Idol'] or around anyone. It wasn't until the show was wrapping up that I realised everyone wanted me to come out, but I was already out! I've always been out. It was just never talked about because it had no baring of what I was doing on stage. It's not like it was a big surprise with my outfits or my looks or my song choices, you know? "I always think to myself that if I had been in a serious relationship at the time and my partner had been in the audience then it probably would have come up. Or if Ryan Seacrest had asked me about my dream man I probably would have answered his question, but it just … [Read more...] about Adam Lambert ‘always’ been open about sexuality
Starting Thursday, Berlin is set to have it’s very first festival of African Literature, entitled "Writing in Migration". The event will include 37 different writers and artists from diverse backgrounds, and includes more than 80 books, multiple panel discussions, concerts, West-African food experiences and more. It comes at a time when migration is the hot-button issues in German society, and is intended to shed light on the perspective of African immigrants through stories from around the world. For many of the festival’s featured artists, who are comprised of award winners like Chris Abani and Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi, the road to appreciation in Germany has been no easy task. Expat or Migrant? Musa Okwonga, a British multi-talent who is known for his poetry, journalism, fiction writing and music, says he has faced personal stigmatisation as an artist with African heritage. Okwonga’s parents originally fled … [Read more...] about How Germany’s first African Book Festival is giving voice to questions of migration
