Jacks Resa: Drömjobb

Bob Marley - Redemption Song



Old pirates, yes, they rob i;
Sold I to the merchant ships,
Minutes after they took i
From the bottomless pit.
But my hand was made strong
By the and of the almighty.
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly.
Wont you help to sing
These songs of freedom? -
cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look? ooh!
Some say its just a part of it:
Weve got to fulfil de book.

Wont you help to sing
These songs of freedom? -
cause all I ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Wo! have no fear for atomic energy,

Yes, some say its just a part of it:
Weve got to fulfil de book.
Wont you help to sing
Dese songs of freedom? -

Redemption songs -
All I ever had:
Redemption songs:
These songs of freedom,

Visste ni förresten att Boca Juniors gula och blå färger kommer från Sveriges flagga!!?

During its first years, Boca Juniors wore different shirts that were changed constantly until the well-known classic blue and yellow one was adopted.
The first shirt was pink, followed by a vertically striped black and white one until 1907, when both yellow and blue colors were adopted. These colors were taken from the swedish flag on a boat which was moored in the port during those days
Boca Juniors shows a great track record in amateur competitions, wining 7 titles. 1919, 1920, 1923, 1924, 1926, 1930 Championships and the Honour Cup in 1925.

Details
The deaths you see on this site have one thing in common: they result from extreme poverty. Poverty keeps hungry people from buying enough food to nourish themselves. Poverty keeps sick people from receiving basic medical treatment or taking simple preventative measures. The vast majority of these preventable deaths occur among the poorest people in the poorest countries.

In September 2000, the 189 countries of the United Nations unanimously agreed to “spare no effort to free our fellow men, women and children from the abject and dehumanizing conditions of extreme poverty,” specifically hunger and the “major diseases that afflict humanity.”

To accomplish this great objective would be expensive, and the price was later estimated at about $195 billion a year. It would be very difficult for this amount of money to be raised by private charities or individuals. It would require the combined efforts of governments throughout the world to do it.

Countries Agree to 0.7% in International Aid
In the March 2002 Monterrey Conference, 22 of the world’s wealthiest countries (listed above) agreed to make “concrete efforts” towards the goal of each giving 0.7 per cent of their national income as aid to the poorest countries. This conference was attended by British Prime Minister Tony Blair, U.S. President George Bush, French President Jacques Chirac, and many other world leaders.

In the September 2002 Johannesburg Summit, these same 22 counties re-affirmed their commitment to reach the 0.7% goal. This would provide enough money to raise the $195 billion per year.

Why the 0.7% Agreement?
The countries made this agreement because they realized that it was hard for each country on its own to give a consistent, minimum level of aid each year. Despite good intentions, a country would find that the aid it wanted to give was eaten away by competing political interests, concern about budget deficits, “problems at home,” “problems abroad,” and so on. So they agreed to a minimal, flat rate that each country could afford each year regardless of its current political or economic state.

The 0.7% figure may sound complicated, but it is actually quite simple. You take the total income earned by all the people in the country and then the government gives 0.7% (seven tenths of one percent) of that as aid. Or to look at it another way: for every $100 earned in the country, the country gives 70 cents in aid.

How are the countries doing?
As the chart above shows, five countries have already met the goal to give 0.7% of their income in international aid: Denmark, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.

In 2002 and 2003, five other countries set up a schedule to give 0.7%: Belgium, Ireland, Finland, France, and Spain.

In July 2004, the United Kingdom set up a schedule to give 0.7%.

In April 2005, Germany set up a schedule to give 0.7%.

In May 2005, Austria, Greece, Italy, and Portugal set up a schedule to give 0.7%.

It was not easy for many of the countries to set up a schedule to reach the 0.7% goal. In some cases, such as Britain and Germany, it took the combined effort of many thousands of citizens writing and petitioning their government to get it done.

The remaining six countries
Only six countries have not yet set up a schedule to give 0.7%. These are Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Switzerland, and the United States. To raise the $195 billion a year, these six will need to reach the goal.

These six countries are all democracies. All that is necessary for them to reach the 0.7% goal is for enough of their citizens to show their support.

Mr Minar Pimple, Deputy Director, Asia, UNMC held an inspiring speach.

Stand Up Speak Out in the Art of Living International Centre, Bangalore, India


stand up speak out, originally uploaded by jackjohansson.

“The idea behind the STAND UP campaign is to remind world leaders of their promise of achieving the Millennium Development Goals by 2015 and urge them to show the necessary political will. The participants will stand up and urge the rich countries to keep their promises, better & more aid, debt cancellation & fair trade; and the poorer countries to make it their first responsibility to save the lives of the poorest citizens and achieve real transparency and accountability in how resources are deployed & spent,” said Mr Minar Pimple, Deputy Director, Asia, UNMC.

In his message exhorting people to join the campaign to eradicate poverty, His Holiness Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of the Art of Living, said, “All the nations of the world have come together and have set up eight Millennium Development Goals, and it will remain just a dream if you don’t stand up and participate. We all have to join together to eradicate poverty, to bring primary education, health, hygiene, care for the environment and make this world a more beautiful place to be in.”

Rapport från Art of Living International Centre


DSC01567, originally uploaded by jackjohansson.

Bangalore, Indien, måndagen den 15 oktober kl 15.15.

Det verkar ta lite tid att hitta rätt och komma på plats här. Med arbetsrutiner. Just den här veckan är ju Navaratri högtiden också.. Då är de flesta engagerade i cermonier och meditationer för kropp och själ.

Hittills har jag, i stort sett varje dag, hållt på med att få igång och logga in på datorn jag skall jobba med eller att bli uppkopplad med min dator... De sa första dan att jag skall jobba med att redigera talks av Guruji och göra en infovideo om Ashramet. Sen sa de att jag kunde gå kursen som håller på en vecka till. Det var dock för sent att registrera sig när jag skulle göra det... Jag gissar att det blir lättare att komma igång, få support med uttrustning, uppkoppling mm, och arbetsuppgifter när kursen är över.. Vi får se..

Nu önskar jag verkligen börja jobba här och ha arbetsuppgifter på dagarna att sätta tänderna i..

15.22... Vad göra fram till middag...? Jag skickar upp lite fler bilder du kan se... Registrera dig för uppdateringar och nuhetsbrev från mig uppe till höger på sidan..

Vi finns!
