Racism has no place. Anywhere in the world. If you’re xenophobic, go and speak to someone about it; don’t just hurl insults and abuse at the people you have a fear of.
Not so long ago a white person got done after being filmed on a tram, expressing her dislike to foreigners in Britain. She used some strong language while children and people with other ethnicities were on the tram. This was heavily covered by the media for about 2 weeks, and now nobody hears of her anymore.
During Chelsea’s match against QPR, John Terry was accused of alleged racism towards Anton Ferdinand. He’s been found guilty, and is due for a court hearing on February 1st. HOLD ON, YOU KNOW THIS ALREADY. REPEATING THIS WILL CONTRADICT WHAT I’M TRYING TO TELL YOU.
I was watching the episode of Charlie Brooker’s Newswipe where he was analysing how the news covered John Terry’s affair with the ex-girlfriend of Wayne Bridge. He was due for meeting Fabio Capello something like 2 weeks later. During those two weeks, the news media talked about lots of increasing “pressure” on Terry, cause they had nothing else better to do!! I bet anyone that for the whole of January the news media are going to be on Terry so much he has to go to the hospital to get treated for gamma radiation from the cameras.
My message to all of the big news companies is:- OK. We all know John Terry has been found guilty and is due in court on 40 days’ time. You don’t need to repeatedly shove it down our throats as if our enzymes have gone to sleep!! Stop giving him “increasing pressure”, while he prepares for this crucial day. Yes, he’s the Chelsea and England captain, but that shouldn’t make a difference as to what he does, or how he is tracked.
A wider message for the news media is to stop hanging around bins like a bunch of prostitutes in order to catch someone by their bedroom window. Thank you. WE ALL HAVE A RIGHT TO PRIVACY.
It was a phenomenal evening yesterday. This week, I have learned and experienced the full impact of the use of the internet in education. The team at Google provided an insight into how you can use it in the classroom. These people at these authorities have to embrace this idea with both arms, rather than being so pent up with the potential risks and so-called “safety threats”.
What’s more, the guys at Google gave me a free Chromebook!! This is what I am writing my blog on. Currently, I am falling asleep on my keyboard because I stayed up till midnight personalising it. The one thing I need to do is treasure this Chromebook. Everything I do on this is going to be online. No magnetic tape, no flimsy flash-drives, nothing. That is the beauty of this Chromebook (notice I am calling it this instead of a laptop, because that word DOES NOT do it justice!!)
Anyway, I will be uploading a regualar blog, possibly every week, filled with info on how this holy grail of computing is being put to good use, plus witty comments on how I feel about any topical issues. (For my friends on Facebook who wonder where my comedy videos went, this is the replacement. Have a go at this too, you could surprise yoursself on how interesting and exciting this is!!!) Google gave birth to this blog, and now, the blog will open up the whole world.
If you want to keep track of where I am, (sorry, I’m not getting married – although this decision is subject to change) my twitter name is @KidInASweetShop. Now, I need to go and hyperventilate after I have pressed the “Publish” button. *Heavy breathing from bathroom*
Oh, I almost forgot. Feel free to comment as well if you use wordpress. I do encourage you to use it; it’s brilliant!
