  1. Today
  2. 45, 069 - Tired Sunday counting. My own fault as I was up until half one this morning - you know a book is good when you read it in one sitting
  3. 45068 - Scar was a mixed bag. When the film got it right he was properly menacing, but when they got it wrong he was a bit...theatrical/over-dramatic, I thought? Beyonce was very good as Nala though.
  4. Wave of sorrow from Medium, rare & remastered
  5. Yesterday
  6. 45, 066 - I'm not sure I could cope with the stampede scene again - it was emotional enough first time round! And I hear they've watered down Scar and the hyenas to make them less sinister? Which somewhat misses the point... they're *meant* to be sinister because they're the baddies.
  7. I'm feeling anxious about a temp job I'm working tonight and next Friday night so I sure could use some prayers, good vibes,etc to get through these shifts.
  8. 45065 Counting after watching the new Lion King. It was...okay. Not a patch on the original though.
  9. The reason for discussing this is because we love u2 so much. The point is not that we're not thankful or something. This is about informing subscribers who paid their membership and are promised certain things. So confusing starts and then a forum is a great place to share feelings about this. The gift gor this year is among the best gifts they they've had, so inform subscribers and ship this great item. Money isn't the issue I think.
  10. Saving lives never tasted so good. (RED) Chef Ambassador Hong Thaimee created a (RED) AIDS-fighting burger, available on AirAsia flights. Pre-order the INSPI(RED) Burger now & 10% of every purchase goes to the fight to #endAIDS: airasia.com📸: AirAsia
  11. 212 HEALTH Think these diseases are history? Think again. 11 June 2019 9:03AM UTC | By: KATIE RYAN ADD YOUR NAME Sign now: we demand more action in the fight against AIDS EmailSign Share on Facebook Save on Facebook Share on Twitter Share by Email *This blog was last updated on 18 July 2019 with the latest UNAIDS data. Many people don’t see or experience HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis (TB) or malaria up close on a daily basis. But that doesn’t mean these are diseases of the past. Let’s take a look at some common assumptions about HIV/AIDS, TB, and malaria. AIDS is a crisis now Over 37 million people are living with HIV today, and more than 14 million of them still can’t get life-saving treatment. As a result, over 2,000 people die from AIDS every day. Just over half of the children living with HIV have access to life-saving treatment. And, progress on prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV is slipping. The epidemic is growing in part because there is a 25% global shortfall of funding needed to reach key targets in the hardest-hit countries by 2020. If we fail to reach these targets, the disease will continue to outpace our response well into the future. In practice, this means we could lose all the hard-earned progress of the last 15 years. HIV isn’t history…yet Globally, over 800 girls and women ages 15 to 24 contract HIV every day. The vast majority of these girls and women live in sub-Saharan Africa. Here, young women are twice as likely as young men to contract HIV. This increased risk of contracting HIV is partly driven by complex economic and social factors. For example, stigma and social taboos limit education about safe sex and protection. This means girls often lack the information they need to protect themselves against HIV and other sexually-transmitted infections. Limited opportunities to earn income may force girls to enter into transactional sexual relationships, where unprotected sex is exchanged for financial support. And limited autonomy and bargaining power in relationships also increase the risk of HIV among women, particularly those that are those forced to marry as children. To truly make HIV history we need to look beyond health care alone and address the systemic issues that are helping to perpetuate the epidemic. The fight isn’t over Between 2002 and 2017, deaths from AIDS, TB and malaria dropped by one third. This progress is a result of strong partnerships, breakthrough financial commitments from governments and donors, and passionate citizen activism. But the fight isn’t over yet. In 2018 alone, nearly 800,000 people died from AIDS-related causes globally and another 1.7 million contracted HIV. After 10 years of steady decline, malaria is back on the rise, especially among children under 5 years old. Though more than 10 million people contract TB every year, nearly 40% of those are “missed”. That means nearly 4 million people are annually left undiagnosed, untreated, and contagious. The battle against these three diseases isn’t over. Luckily, we have the tools we need to finish the fight. We have the tools to finish the fight The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria is a 21st-century partnership designed to accelerate the end of these preventable diseases as epidemics. It works in partnership with governments, civil society, the private sector and people affected by the diseases to put an end to these epidemics by investing in and funding interventions, like prevention and treatment, doctors, nurses, innovative technologies and education programs. The Global Fund is one of the world’s most powerful tools in the fight against these diseases. In 2017 alone, regions and countries where the Global Fund invests treated 108 million cases of malaria and 5 million people for TB, plus 17.5 million people were on ARV therapy to treat HIV. In the same year, 197 million mosquito nets were distributed, over 79 million HIV tests were completed and HIV prevention services and programs reached 9.4 million people. Take action In October, the Global Fund is hosting its Sixth Replenishment. We’re asking world leaders and private investors to come together and help save 16 million livesbetween 2021 and 2023 by meeting their replenishment goal of at least US$14 billion. This investment is the bold ambition the world needs to get us back on track to stop the spread of these diseases. To continue funding life-saving programs like this one, we need world leaders to #StepUpTheFight by fully financing the Global Fund. Add your name now and tell world leaders they must back this bold initiative this year. Sign now: we demand more action in the fight against AIDS Dear government and business leaders, We're urging you to show ambition in ending AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria. This is a fight we can win – but only if we all do our part. I’m in, are you? Please fully finance the Global Fund to help save another 16 million lives and bring us closer to eliminating these diseases for goo

  14. I had no luck with the lottery today for Japan 2. Never saw RZ, GA front or back. I expected there wouldn’t be much available so I’m not too upset. So now I’m on the lookout for any kind fan who might have 2 extra tickets for night 2 in the coming months. Thanks to those here who’ve given me advice over the last few weeks as I’ve tried to navigate getting tickets.

  17. I’m Ok with waiting for Whatever comes from U2!! You know why? Because there is Only One U2 and you’ll not get anything better from Anyone else! WHATEVER they want to give is fine, and it is definitely worth waiting for. ... this Is a fan forum isn’t it??!!
  18. Hello, any news on this? Will we really not know what tickets we bought?
  19. What movie? You big teaser! I am on an intermission from watching The Joshua Tree 30 on YouTube. It's awesome.
  20. I went to the cinema today. I couldn't find a cinema in Telford that was showing the film I wanted to see, so I had to go to Birmingham, to my favourite cinema The Electric. I don't normally do horror films, but this one was more of a comedy - and apart from a few necessary scenes, it's not overly gory either, so I could cope with that. And there's a Star Wars easter egg that made me laugh myself silly. Although with Adam Driver in the film (who plays Kylo Ren in SW), I would have been mildly disappointed if there hadn't been a reference in there somewhere
  21. Yeah, right, they will start shipping in August. More likely August 2020. Now it’s past mid July and they haven’t yet announced the final track list, still they promise to deliver the CD in less than a month. Do you beLIEve it?
