    Dragons♞. There is no why So why try to explain For we know We are forces of nature Once unleashed our majesty cannot fall We shall devour all We have been physically restrained for far too long Yet our spirits remain unquenchably strong Doubt if you must For in fear you trust Allowing your uniqueness to rust We’ll not take lessons from thee As you've chosen not to be free While we will embark on a spree Of peaceful conquest, sharing, love and humbly enjoying this world’s beauty We've been tame, patient and confined However, it is now us, who ourselves our paths define And we shall never again bow For we are dragons. An exclusive poem for you all from The Poet. Taken from 'A Wealth Of Memory'. Kehinde Sonola © 2014 http://www.amazon.com/Kehinde-Sonola/e/B00820I5UC

      Dedicated to the young people of El Raval, a neighborhood in Barcelona with some amazing architecture and public spaces. As you can see for yourself, young people - Catalan, Spanish, immigrant - make these public spaces into living, breathing places of culture and beauty. The police drop by to make sure things don't get out of hand, but no need to scream or shout, no violence. The present and the future of these young people in economic terms is less than bright as Southern Europe is in the grip of austerity imposed by governments and their financial overlords. The spirit and the culture will survive. It is time to reclaim people power. Sound: N.S.

        On June 2 2013 Robert Covelli gave a reading from his new novel Black Sheep. The reading was held at Teatro Paraguas in Santa Fe New Mexico. The book is available in several formats from Amazon and others. http://www.amazon.com/Black-Sheep-ebook/dp/B002R5B1LS/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1370971460&sr=8-2&keywords=robert+covelli In the Rust Belt city of Buffalo NY, visionaries start a manufacturing venture, building hybrid cars, at the very moment that Democrats nominate a progressive as candidate for mayor. The local crime family takes an interest in new money in town, precisely when a younger group of criminals, fresh out of prison, moves to unseat that established family. The hero is son of the first member of the family who abandoned the life of crime; the father pursued radical economics at the university in the 60s, when he foresaw that the corporations would co-opt much of American life, including crime. Thus, his son understands what's happening in his home town and tries to influence the bad parts for the better and profit from the good.

          SELDA vice-chairperson Bonifacio Ilagan proudly represented the victims of human rights violations during Martial Law, at the 27th People Power Anniversary gathering at EDSA. In a speech delivered at People Power Monument, Ilagan said that the law is meaningful – beyond the monetary compensation, it is a step in keeping the memory etched in our nation’s history. Now known as the Human Rights Violation Victims Reparation and Recognition Act of 2013 is a victory and a tribute for the people who fought the dictatorship. It is a product of a decade-long struggle of the victims, a testimony of the struggle in society, and the people’s historic task to end the prevailing culture of impunity. Justice, freedom and democracy are not served on a silver platter – these are fought for. Hear the victims-heroes of Martial Law – NEVER AGAIN!

            A slideshow of pictures taken during the 3 week occupation of the Adventure playground in Battersea park. The Occupiers who enndured snow and freezing weather have kept the bulldozers of Tory Wandsworth council from destroying this unique site which has been an important part of childhood for so many over the last 50 years. Despite the eviction of most of the occupiers, two remain on site and are being starved out by Wandsworth borough council, who have at great expense laid seige to the site, I sincerely hope that WBC are shamed into retracting their demolition order. occupylondon.org.uk/archives/24602 occupylondon.org.uk/archives/24661 wandsworthagainstcuts.co.uk/

                This is a simple DIY project using a normal bike and a treadmill motor. The total cost for the project is just a couple dollars for the rear foot pegs to hold the bike in place. A used treadmill was found for free and the motor taken out. Some scrap wood makes the generator frame. An old tractor V belt runs around the bike tire and turns the motor. The motor puts out quite a lot of power into the batteries. See how to make one here: http://www.thediyworld.com/DIY-Bicycle-Powered-Generator.php

                    What's the single biggest contribution to business success? asks this documentary written and directed by Jon Danzig. The answer: developing the skills of all the staff. The film, part of a series of films and books called, "People Power at Work", demonstrated to employers that successful businesses invest in their staff, offer continuous training and share openly their company's vision. In the mid 1990s this video was shown to business managers throughout the UK, with customised versions produced for different regions of the country. As a direct result of this film, many businesses signed up to the Investors in People award and learnt how to harness their 'People Power'. A companion video, "People Power for Employees", demonstrated to staff that lifelong learning and the Investors in People award would result in great benefits to their prospects and working life. 'People Power for Managers' - written and directed by Jon Danzig. Presented by Sue Lawley, John Humphrys and Beverley Ashworth. Editorial Consultant Mike Peart. Lighting cameramen Richard Day and Ray Nicholson. Video editing Jonathan Bravo and Jon Danzig. Production Manager Elena Zokas.
