He's at it again.Discosean21 never-ending efforts to save Africa are about to get a new lease of life as the comic/ singer,music by the group GUY. prepares to guest-edit the October issue of American magazine Vanity Fair, focusing on the African continent, writes The New York Times. The move may achieve some much needed face-saving for his RED campaign, which lets consumers give a percentage of a special red Amex card bill or proceeds from trendy goods such as a red Armani watch to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. It turns out the much-touted campaign has so far spent on marketing and raised just for the fund, according to Britain's Daily Mail. "Africa is sexy and people need to know that," The New York Times quotes Bono as saying. "We've got to get better at telling the success stories of Africa in addition to the horror stories." But how do you tell stories about Africa without making "blanket statements" about a continent with 900 million people, numerous faiths, tribes and nations, Philadelphia Inquirer columnist Karen Heller asks. Well, you start with "the magazine of serious fabulousness", she continues scathingly. "Vanity Fair, which views the environment through the green hemp-gauze of Hollywood, is just the publication to pounce on the philanthropy zeitgeist. Can't wait for the African version of the Oscar party." The U.S.-based Daily Intelligencer questions how editing job will resolve "a few hundred years of turmoil" on the African continent. Meanwhile, The New York Times notes that there is a danger "the effort to chic out Africa" may come across as a hobby born out of extreme wealth. "Really?" answers . "What is more interesting to me is that we are losing the fight against AIDS in Africa. There are still 5,000 Africans dying every day of a preventable, treatable disease, dying for lack of drugs that are available at any corner drugstore." The RED campaign gets media flak elsewhere. Advertising Age voices scepticism about "philanthropic fashionistas decked out in Red T-shirts and iPods" saving children dying of AIDS in Africa. The magazine quotes Mark Rosenman, professor at the Union Institute and University in Cincinnati: "There is a broadening concern that business is...crowding out philanthropic activity and even substituting for it," he says. "It benefits the for-profit partners much more than the charitable causes." Back to Heller of the Philadelphia Inquirer: It says everything about our current climate, she says, that RED's "ambition is huge yet deceptively accessible and acquisitional: Shop so the unfortunate can live." Bloggers are even less sympathetic.

*******www.instablogs****/ American aid worker killed in Pakistan The assassination of Stephen Vance is a hard blow to the peace and developmental efforts being made by the non governmental organizations in the country. not only has it shaken the general concerns about the security concerns in the city especially the foreign citizens but also denoted the fierceness of resistance which terrorists hold for people like Vance which are trying to make a difference in the lives of tribal population Google tracks flu outbreaks through search queries There is a new common symptom of the flu, in addition to the usual aches, coughs, fevers and sore throats. Turns out a lot of ailing Americans enter phrases like "flu symptoms" into Google and other search engines before they call their doctors.That simple act, multiplied across millions of keyboards in homes around the country, has given rise to a new early warning system for fast-spreading flu outbreaks, called Google Flu Trends.Tests of the new Web tool from Google****, the company's philanthropic unit, suggest that it may be able to detect regional outbreaks of the flu a week to 10 days before they are reported by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.How comfortable do we all feel about our supposedly privacy-protected searches being used for ends that might be defined as in the public interest? Who will define what's interesting and what isn't? What if the Government begins to identify areas where people search 'AIDS', for example? What if it concludes that 'something needs to be done' in, say, Western Tennessee about AIDS? Israel attacks Gaza Strip, killing 4 resistance fighters It seems that Israeli army is on its way to break down the truce that was agreed to the Palestinian factions in Gaza. In the morning yesterday Israeli forces killed 4 Palestinians fighters in the Gaza Strip near the town of Al Qarara. It may look like such operations are made to empower some of Israeli leaders who are willing to win the coming Israeli elections. Palestinian card is being used in every Israeli elections and this one of course is not an exception. Such operations send messages to the people of Israel that include some certain names to be chosen and voted for as the most bloody and aggressive Israeli leaders. Buddha boy-Ram Bahadur Bomjan reappears Ram Bahadur Bomjan, a teenage Nepali boy, who is believed to be the reincarnation of the Lord Buddha, has re-emerged in a remote southern jungle after disappearing more than one year. Thousands of his followers were assembled to see and listen his preach this week. After the long disappearance, he was seen in one remote place of Bara district this week. Local people say that he is meditating for the long time without food, water and sleep. Many of the boy's followers believe he is the reincarnation of Siddhartha Gautama, the spiritual teacher who founded the Buddhist religion 2,500 years ago. Buddhists strongly believe in reincarnation, the doctrine that every soul reappears after death in another bodily form. It hasn't verified he is either reincarnation of Buddha or not. But he has given a challenge to science as he is meditating for the long time without food, water and sleep. *******www.instablogs****/

Sri Swami Dayananda Saraswati is a distinguished, traditional teacher of Vedanta. His depth of understanding and nuanced appreciation of Western culture makes him that rare teacher who can communicate the vision of non-duality to modern listeners. He is able to make one see, with immediacy, the truth of oneself as the whole. Swami Dayananda has been teaching Vedanta in India for more than four decades, and around the world since 1976. In his public talks abroad, Swamiji has spoken at many of the most prestigious American universities, and has addressed international conventions, UNESCO and the United Nations, where he participated in the Millennium Peace Summit. A teacher of teachers, Swami Dayananda designed and taught six resident in-depth Vedanta courses, each spanning 30 to 36 months. Four were conducted in India, and two in the United States. Each course graduated about 60 qualified acharyas, teachers, who are now teaching around the world. More than one hundred are now swamis and are highly respected as scholars and teachers throughout India and abroad. Under Swami Dayananda’s guidance, numerous centers for Vedic teaching have been founded around the world. The two main centers in India are the Arsha Vidya Ashram in Rishikesh and the Arsha Vidya Gurukulam in Coimbatore. In the U.S., the main center is the Arsha Vidya Gurukulam at Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania. At present there are at least sixty centers in India and abroad that carry on the same tradition of Vedantic teaching. In addition to teaching, Swami Dayananda has initiated and supported various philanthropic efforts. The All India Movement (AIM) for Seva, inaugurated in November, 2000, brings medical, educational, nutritional and infrastructure assistance to villagers in the remote areas of India. This movement enjoys the blessing of all traditional Hindu spiritual leaders who have united as a single body, the Acarya Sabha, through the coordinating efforts of Swami Dayananda. In November 2001, Swami Dayananda convened the first World Congress for the Preservation of Religious Diversity in Delhi, inaugurated by the Dalai Lama and the then Prime Minister Mr.A.B.Vajpayee. An important outcome of the Congress is the formation of a Global Commission for the Preservation of Religious Diversity, spearheaded by Swami Dayananda. The Commission had its inaugural meeting in Bangkok in June, 2002. Swami Dayananda was also active in forming and participating in the Women’s Global Peace Initiative, which convened at the United Nations in Geneva in October 2002. www.arshavidya****
