Bringing Black music and culture to the BBC – Alex, Londoner #318

Bringing Black music and culture to the BBC – Alex, Londoner #318

My life was a call to rhythms and communication and in the many things that I have worked on and created Black Londoners radio programme from 1974 till 1988 for me, took in the black diaspora. Joyce and I sat down and we created a format, it took in all walks of life. I met the stars, the Muhammad Alis, Gladys Knight. Politicians never used to have a chance to be interviewed on the Beeb, they all got the opportunity….

Advocate for social justice, freedom of movement and children’s rights #351 Ilona

I worked for a comms agency that’s worked with the European Delegation as Slovenia was preparing to join the EU. We had a referendum of our own and it was the vast majority of people, I think about 89%, voted to join the EU. And so I really grew to believe in the dream of why Europe had been set up, or the European Union had come about as a way of integrating countries. I came to London originally to…

What soccer can teach us about freedom | Marc Bamuthi Joseph

What soccer can teach us about freedom | Marc Bamuthi Joseph

The two places where I feel most free aren’t actually places. They’re moments. The first is inside of dance. Somewhere between rising up against gravity and the feeling that the air beneath me is falling in love with my body’s weight. I’m dancing and the air is carrying me like I might never come down. The second place that I feel free is after scoring a goal on the soccer pitch. My body floods with the chemical that they put…

Secularism: freedom, fairness and human rights #NSS150

Do you think religion is a personal matter for individuals, and something that should never be imposed on people? So do we. The National Secular Society has been challenging religious privilege for 150 years. Our work began with Charles Bradlaugh who despite being elected as an MP was denied his seat in parliament because of his atheist beliefs. Bradlaugh was eventually allowed to take his seat, and once sworn into Parliament was instrumental in bringing about a change in the…

“Culture in Decline” Episode #3 – “C.V.D.” ———– ALL SUBS !!!! [HD 720p] (18 languages)

Oh, hello! Hey, tell me honestly. Do these pants make my ass look too big? Or wait, maybe not big enough? Is it time for a little butt cheek augmentation? Or maybe a little liposuction to take away these love handles, at least; and perhaps while I’m at it, a nice tummy tuck. That can’t hurt to even it all out! But wait, why should I stop there? Since I’m a bit too lazy to work on these pecs, perhaps…

We Are Trying to Shift a Culture -Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. Shambhala

We’re trying to shift a culture; that’s what we are doing here. We’re shifting a culture that acknowledges the power, the necessity of its citizens to feel their humanity and to validate those feelings of compassion, of kindness, of goodness. And I think that to a certain degree these days science is with us; because more and more of the research and so forth they’re showing that this is essential to our society. Can we be brave enough to acknowledge…

A really principled frequentist can’t produce a probability distribution… – The conclusion we want to point out when we think about valuation is the fact that means…

Why conspiratorial thinking is peaking in America | Sarah Rose Cavanagh

Why conspiratorial thinking is peaking in America | Sarah Rose Cavanagh

Rather than look at reality and agree on one whole reality we’re becoming a society where we have these different groups that believe in different realities. And that is a big part of political polarization where people don’t just agree about their opinions, disagree about the opinions about a series of facts but they disagree about whether the facts are actually true. But we can also see it in conspiracy thinking where these fringe groups, or at least they used…
