Prince Harry: Britain’s King of Hearts

Like his mother Princess Diana, Prince Harry is a man of the people. He has a natural way of connecting. Perhaps because he is not afraid of 1embracing his vulnerability.

Researcher Professor at Houston University, Brené Brown says, “Connection is why we’re here. It’s what gives us purpose and meaning to our lives… In order for connection to happen, we have to allow ourselves to be seen, vulnerably seen.”

Walled Off Hotel in the West Bank

Banksy, the West Bank and the Walled Off Hotel

Everyone has heard of the West Bank and Gaza, the Occupied Palestinian Territories. But few have cared to visit the two pieces of land the Palestinians ended up with in 1948, and which have been occupied by the Israelis since the 1967 War. Now, with his Walled Off Hotel that opened in March, Banksy, the anonymous British street artist and colleague of Sam 3, hopes to change that.

 

Few visit because the West Bank and Gaza are synonymous in our minds with conflict. What happens in this corner of the world has been happening for so long, we have become immune to it. It sounds 1unfair but it is so far away. The conflict looks as though it will never be solved. And it doesn’t affect us.

Racist? Me? Do the test…

With the 1backlash against Muslims following terrorism attacks, the anti-immigration feelings behind Brexit and Donald Trump’s proposed travel 2ban for 6 Muslim countries, many people are expressing resistance to an increasingly global reality. But how many of us are prepared to call ourselves racist?

 

Many psychologists believe that all of us are racist to some degree. The British, the Germans, the Americans, the Indians, the Chinese ­– every nationality under the sun, even the Spanish.

Should we feel sorry for Melania Trump?

Marriage isn’t easy at the best of times but when you’re trying to pretend it’s something it’s not, it gets a lot harder, as Melania Trump is discovering.

 

Intrigued by the apparent 1lack of complicity between the two, social media has focused on one public engagement after another when they appear to be distant and unsupportive of the other, with hashtags like #SaveMelania and #SadMelania.

BCM-Magalluf

Why do young Brits go crazy abroad?

The summer season is beginning and young 1Brits are 2hopping on planes to resorts such as Magaluf in Majorca and Sunny Beach in Bulgaria, excited at the prospect of 3letting their hair down.

 

Often they 4board the planes in 5fancy dress costumes that they will continue to wear once they reach their destination, though at times they prefer to wear nothing at all.

 

There is now a €2,300 6fine for people who 7strip off in the streets of Magaluf while police are patrolling beaches on Segways to limit the numbers of people having sex on the beach.
