  1. Today
  2. Romans 13:9 NCV The law says, “You must not be guilty of adultery. You must not murder anyone. You must not steal. You must not want to take your neighbor’s things.” All these commands and all others are really only one rule: “Love your neighbor as you love yourself.”
  3. I'm happy enough with this gift, but then again I loved the vinyl gifts too so I might just be behind the times. The objections that other fans have for the DVD are quite reasonable and they have a solid case. I just hope that this show doesn't get released commercially because if so it devalues the specialness of this fanclub only item.
  4. I understand, and can sympathize with this reasoning. The problem is that you didn't pay $50 for a DVD. You paid to be a member of this website/fanclub. The gift is only one part of a larger sum. I don't understand people saying I didn't pay for this gift when they purchased something with multiple components. U2 never says what any gift will or will not be until it is officially announced. This is what they've chosen to do this year. It is what it is. I can undertand being disappointed. I can understand someone consdering if they want to keep subscribing. I don't understand the constant barrage of attacks against the band, and this website, when things aren't as one would wish. It's the chance we take when we subscribe. One can join this website for free, still be a part of the live threads and so much more. That costs nothng yet it's expensive, and a lot of work, to maintain a website. . . This gift is one day old and people are already deciding that they are going to have to buy the BluRay. No you don't. You'll have the DVD. You want the BluRay. There's a huge difference. It's also presuming this will be commercially released on BluRay. From what I read, it's exclusive. There's been no indication of it being anything else. It's EI, from Europe, and it's the Berlin show. I've read, numerous times, from many different sources, that this is one of the best U2 shows ever. I don't understand why people can't enjoy it for what it is. Thi is just how I see it.. We all possess the right to express our vews in these forums and threads.. It's part of our subscription. Your opinion has just as much validity as mine. We wouldn't be a community if it did not.
  5. Longtime diehard U2 fan here, but last year was my first time subscribing — specifically for the 2CD subscriber gift. I loved it. And I was really looking forward to the full Live in Berlin concert — but honestly assumed it would be a "regular" DVD/Blu-Ray release. $50 just seems really steep for a DVD (DVD!), no matter how much I would love to own it.
  6. When I say that it is the same concert I mean that it is the same stage. Why not give as a gift something from The Joshua Tree Tour? It was a fascinating show. We already have SOI in Paris, Innocence And Experience Live and now Experience And Innocence live in Berlin, but nothing about the Joshua Tree Tour. Of course I want the subscription gift, but I expected something different
  7. NIÑAS Y MUJERES Tomará otros 100 años lograr la igualdad de género, según un informe En algunas partes, podría llevar 163 años lograr la igualdad de género. Por qué es importante para los Global Citizens Mejorar la igualdad de género y el acceso a la educación son dos de los Objetivos de Desarrollo Sostenible de las Naciones Unidas. Empoderar a las mujeres y las niñas con mejores trabajos, educación y representación política ayudaría a sacar a muchas sociedades de la pobreza. Puedes unirte a Global Citizen y tomar medidas sobre estos temas aquí. La igualdad de género todavía está a un siglo de distancia para muchas mujeres en el mundo, según un nuevo informe del Foro Económico Mundial (FEM). Las regiones de todo el mundo han cerrado, en promedio, el 68,6% de la brecha de género, según los resultados del informe titulado "Informe de brecha de género global 2020", que ha sido publicado anualmente por el FEM desde 2006. "Proyectando las tendencias actuales hacia el futuro, la brecha global de género se cerrará en 99.5 años, en promedio, en los 107 países cubiertos continuamente desde la primera edición del informe", indica. Sin embargo, el cronograma para lograr la igualdad de género varía según la región. De las ocho regiones identificadas en el informe, Europa occidental es la más cercana a lograr la igualdad de género, dentro de 54 años. Mientras tanto, se estima que Norteamérica está a 151 años de cerrar la brecha de género. Por su parte, Asia oriental y el Pacífico parecen ser los que más luchan, ya que no se espera que alcancen la igualdad de género durante otros 163 años. Aunque los números parecen desalentadores, Klaus Schwab, fundador y presidente ejecutivo del WEF, señaló en el prefacio del informe que hay una hoja de ruta a seguir cuando se trata de alcanzar la paridad de género. Tuitea ahora: Agradece a México por haber dado este gran paso para la Igualdad de Género PASA A LA ACCIÓN Más información "Las empresas deben tratar a las personas con dignidad y respeto y ofrecer igualdad de oportunidades a todos los miembros de la sociedad, aprovechando la diversidad de género e invirtiendo en todo su talento a través de la mejora y la actualización continua", escribió. "Los gobiernos deben crear políticas que brinden oportunidades de desarrollo, integración y despliegue de talentos para todos los géneros, diversifiquen los grupos de liderazgo y brinden apoyo a las familias y cuidadores, tanto en las sociedades juveniles como en las que envejecen por igual. Y empresas y gobiernos deben trabajar juntos para crear una nueva economía y narrativa social para la acción y para coordinar y acelerar el proceso de cambio". El informe midió la igualdad de género basada en cuatro áreas: participación y oportunidad económica, logros educativos, salud y supervivencia, y empoderamiento político. Lograr la igualdad en la participación económica y en las oportunidades es lo más alejado, ya que el informe estima que llevará 257 años cerrar la brecha de género. La siguiente brecha más grande fue en el área del empoderamiento político, donde, a pesar de algunas mejoras sólidas durante el año pasado, el informe todavía encontró que el mundo estaba a 94.5 años de alcanzar la paridad. Empoderar a las mujeres es un objetivo que muchas organizaciones y gobiernos están trabajando como parte de una estrategia más amplia para eliminar la pobreza extrema. "Proporcionar a las mujeres y las niñas el mismo acceso a la educación, la atención médica, el trabajo decente y la representación en los procesos de toma de decisiones políticas y económicas impulsará economías sostenibles y beneficiará a las sociedades y a la humanidad en general", informa la ONU. La línea de tiempo para la igualdad de género en el área educativo no es tan larga como la de los demás, y el informe estima que se cerrará en los próximos 12 años. Por último, el plazo para cerrar la brecha de salud y supervivencia "permanece indefinido". Esta es la estimación que muestra qué tan lejos están cada una de las ocho regiones para lograr la igualdad de género: Europa occidental: 54 años América Latina y el Caribe: 59 años Asia del Sur: 71,5 años África subsahariana: 95 años Europa del Este y Asia Central: 107 años Oriente Medio y África del Norte: 140 años América del Norte: 151 años Asia oriental y el Pacífico: 163 años El informe también encontró que, por undécimo año consecutivo, Islandia es el mejor país del mundo en términos de igualdad de género, seguido por sus vecinos nórdicos Noruega, Finlandia y Suecia. Completando los diez primeros están Nicaragua, Nueva Zelanda, Irlanda, España, Ruanda y Alemania.

  8. By Joe McCarthy and Erica Sanchez JAN. 30, 2018 80 ENVIRONMENT 7 Ways to Cut Junk Plastic From Your Life Landfills are growing out of control throughout the US, Canada, the UK, and elsewhere. When the clock struck midnight on Jan. 1, the obscure world of waste management entered a state of panic. China, the world’s leading importer and processor of waste paper, metal, and plastic, had just enacted a ban on importing 24 kinds of solid waste and updated their guidelines for the waste they will accept going forward. The country’s officials said that too much of the garbage it had accepted was contaminated, extremely difficult to recycle, and harmful to local environments, according to the New York Times. Take Action: Take the Pledge: #SayNoToPlastic Firma: El cambio climático amenaza la vida. Ayuda a los países más pobres a adaptarse PASA A LA ACCIÓN Más información And now landfills throughout the US, Canada, the UK, and elsewhere are expanding with this junk waste as officials search for ways to deal with it, according to the Times. The silver lining of this crisis is that many places are now thinking about why they allow junk materials to be produced in the first place and are taking steps to curb production. For example, the European Union recently announced plans to restrict single-use plastic production and to improve the recyclability of plastics that can be produced. Read More: 9 Brilliant Ways the UK Is Cracking Down on Plastic Pollution That’s an important development for the global environment. The amount of solid waste in the world has grown rapidly over the past several decades and by 2025 global solid waste is expected to increase to more than 6 million tons per day, a 70% rise compared to 2010 levels. All of this waste is polluting oceans, contaminating sources of water and agriculture, and contributing to climate change, among other harms. Dealing with this garbage should ultimately be the responsibility of manufacturers who send the stuff out into the environment in the first place. But everyday people can also play a role in reducing how much plastic waste enters the world. Here are seven ways you can cut plastic from your life. Stop using plastic bags / Use a tote bag Image: Flickr/Owen Parrish As many as 1 trillion plastic bags from stores are used each year, and only around 5% ever get recycled, according to the EPA. The vast majority end up in landfills, in oceans, or otherwise pollute the planet. Read More: 5 Household Products That Are Slowly Destroying the Environment Cutting plastic bags out of your life pretty easy if you make the effort. If you’re only buying a few things from the store, ask to not be given a bag. And for everything else, buy a durable tote bag that can hold your groceries — a quick Google search will bring up a lot of cheap options. Stop buying bottled water / Use a reusable water bottle Image: Flickr: Steven Depolo Plastic water bottles are another ubiquitous form of plastic that are mostly unnecessary and are rarely recycled — 80% end up contaminating the environment. Buy a reusable water bottle instead. Read More: Why You Should Probably Never Drink Bottled Water Again Stop using plastic wrap / Use tupperware Plastic wrap is an easy solution to keep unused food fresh, but it’s very difficult to recycle and mostly ends up in landfills or elsewhere. Plus, it’s got that razor-sharp bit that can often lead to unnecessary use of plastic bandages. Using tupperware is an even easier, safer, and ultimately cheaper way to cut plastic wrap from your life. Stop using straws / Use reusable straws Image: Shawn Heinrichs.for Lonely Whale Although they seem harmless, plastic straws are putting an enormous strain on the global environment and harming countless animals in the process. Read More: Why You Should Probably Never Use a Plastic Straw Again First of all, try to avoid using a straw unless you absolutely need one. For those times when you do need a straw — if you have a disability or you’re drinking a smoothie — buy reusable straws that are cheap and easy to use. Avoid Styrofoam Image: Flickr: David Gilford Styrofoam can’t be recycled and it takes a very long time to decompose in the environment. Avoid Styrofoam as much as you can. Read More: Zimbabwe Bans Styrofoam-Like Food Containers Buy fresh food that doesn’t have plastic packaging Image: Flickr: storebukkebrute Buying fresh vegetables and food from bulk containers may seem like a luxury but it can actually be cheaper than buying packaged goods. A lot of food packaging is excessive anyways. In 2015, Whole Foods came under fire for putting orange slices in individual plastic containers, perfectly encapsulating how many brands overuse plastic. 98.8K people are talking about this Stop buying from companies that overuse plastic Many companies respond to customer pressure. While restricting plastic production through regulations is more effective and puts the blame on manufacturers where it belongs, consumers can also demand more sustainable behavior from companies they buy products from. Look for alternatives to companies that use an excessive amount of plastic, because, ultimately, all kinds of plastic are hard to recycle. Then let these companies know that you want them to use sustainable materials. Global Citizen campaigns on reducing plastic waste and you can take action on this issue here.

  9. How good a gift this is or isn’t will really depend on if it gets a physical release to the general public or not. To renew it cost me around £30. If the show is only going to be released for subscribers or at the very least the physical format is released only for subscribers then I think it’s a good gift. However if they decide to release it publicly on Blu Ray at a cost of usually around £15 then someone who isn’t a subscriber will be getting a better format of the show for half the amount I paid. So as I said it all depends on how exclusive this is to us.

  12. Yesterday, the Doomsday Clock got ever closer to striking midnight. According to the clock, there are figuratively only 100 seconds left until the end of the world. As a humanitarian organisation that is only too aware of the impact that environmental and nuclear disasters can have on life and land, we are saddened to see the planet in such a state of crisis. On unveiling the clock yesterday, Former Irish President and Elders Chairperson - Mary Robinson said, “Our planet faces two simultaneous existential threats: the climate crisis and nuclear weapons. We are faced by a gathering storm of extinction-level consequences, and time is running out." When CCI's Voluntary CEO - Adi Roche, started working with the people in Ukraine and Belarus after the Chernobyl Disaster in 1986, the clock stood at 3 minutes to midnight. By 1991, more treaties were signed, the Berlin Wall was torn down, the Iron Curtain fell and the clock went back to 17 minutes, the furthest we have ever been from midnight. In the nuclear realm, national leaders have ended or undermined several major arms control treaties and negotiations during the last year, creating an environment conducive to a renewed nuclear arms race, to the proliferation of nuclear weapons, and to lowered barriers to nuclear war. More work needs to be done by world leaders on these issues to stabilise the state of the planet. We cannot keep draining the planet of its resources, harming it with weaponry and expecting it to heal itself from the degradation that has been inflicted at the hands of man. Thankfully, 2019 saw an increase in awareness of climate concerns with several youths protesting to protect our planet. While much has been done, there is still a lot more to do. Together, we can beat the clock. Let's all play our part in protecting the planet for future generations. This shared common home will be their inheritance after all and it's up to us all to fix the damage that has been done so far.
  13. How? They've given us vinyl, CD's, books, prints (whateveer the format), tshirts, remixes and more as gifts. What else can they do? In addition, they put out the No Line CD and gave us the 360 tour. We got SOI. They tried to give everyone/anyone a free download via Itunes and got trashed for being arrogant. We got the IE tour. It was completely innovative and redefined modern indoor rock concerts.. We got TJT30. Very shortly after that, we got SOE and the EI tour. They just finished TJT 2019 tour, during which they released a new single. We got a remix EP from that. All of it in a ten year perod. We pay for this website and beig in the fanclub and a discount coupon and a subscribers gift and presales and full acceess to their music/video catalogue and exclusive content and access to special events.. I do not understand why people are so upset and focused on one part of a much larger package.. It it's that awful-caviat emptor. Look at the ingreidients before you put the product into your cart. Don't purchase it a second time if it leaves a bad taste in your mouth. This gift was just announced. Everyone seems to want EI on disc yet the majorty of reactions to it being our gift are negative. I do not understand..
  14. Today is #InternationalEducationDay as declared by the UN. The right to education is enshrined in article 26 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and we are delighted to offer education programmes to the children in our care to ensure that they are fully equipped for adulthood. CCI'S Life-Skills Programme focuses on teaching the children basic numeracy, literacy, housework, cookery, macramé and cookery skills, while our Restoration of Rights Programme helps adults who have previously lost their right to live independently, by undertaking an education programme which enables them to gain their rights back on completion. These programmes help people from an institutional background to live independent lives free from segregation.

  19. I like it!! And a DVD it's OK for me, because I haven't the Blu-ray player. Did I mention I like the picture in the home so much? I am only a bit worried because of this: I've received the shipment notification mail of the previous gift but I don't receive newsletters from the site. I don't know why... any help, please? Thanks in advance.
  20. I really hope they offer a digital download as well. I haven't had a DVD or BluRay (not that they offered it) hooked up in two years! 4K streaming is the standard now. This would be like if they had offered a cassette in 1999. Some people still had them but everyone had CDs by then. Come on, U2... step it up!
  21. Yesterday
  22. Very Well Said @peterferris8 and @promenade95 !!!!!!
  23. Just remembered the Paris 2015 gig was broadcast at Christmas 2015 before being released physically in the summer of 2016. It really does appear that the Berlin show will not go on general release - how could they possibly justify the gift otherwise? The DVD/Blu Ray really should be in the shops....an audio CD of the show would have made a great gift..Strange decision.
  24. The same concert ? Are you nuts ? Only eight songs repeated and the Dirty day to Wild horses segment blows anything on the Paris show out of the water !! On a negative note though yes we will have to fork out for the higher quality general release version.
