    Bono, congrats for the speech in Davos. You represent us! Thank you for all your efforts! Ps: Sorry for our dumb and idiot president (he doesn't represent me). He just won the elections because of the fakenews.

    It is strange that The Little Things That Give You Away is one of the choices, given that it was never played on the i+e and e+i tours. But I'm looking forward to hearing The Troubles live as that is a great song that wan't played much.

    "Go, shout it out, rise up"... Listening to NLOTH and ... in tears. Such a magic album. "It's not a hill, it's a mountain as you start out the climb".... "I try to rewind, reload and replay"... So deep lyrics. Thank U2 for this album.

    Yes, you’re right - unless there was a special performance of the song not on the e&i tour, but after the JT anniversary tour (e.g., was it played during the “U2 at the BBC” show?). This opportunity to vote on tracks gave me awful flashbacks of the process to choose tracks for U22. I hope to heaven that they have already picked the tracks themselves and that these in the poll are a selection of ones they have already chosen. (I’m still upset at a portion of the U2.com membership who voted for songs we already had lots of great versions of instead of the rarely-performed and new songs which were the obvious choices for such a collection (thus, we ended up on U22 getting yet another version of a song like WOWY instead of only-performed-on-one-tour tracks like “The Return Of The Stingray Guitar” or “Glastonbury” 🙄 - thank goodness The Edge fixed things to a degree with his “Edge’s Picks” CD included with “From The Ground Up”).). Well, here’s hoping for the best mix of songs.

    Thanks dmway, much appreciated...that's exactly what I was looking for. A theater release would be fantastic, I'd go over and over again. We watch U2 concert dvds quite regularly here at home, as it's the next best thing to being there, and the ultimate 'souvenir' from our favourite concerts from our favourite band. I have a 10 year old daughter and 12 year old son, who have both been with me to the last 3 tours and are both HUGE U2 (and rock 'n roll) fans, breaking all the stereotypes of their generation, with U2 posters on their walls and full knowledge of all things U2, among other bands from Zepplin to Jack White, and on... So, we need those DVDs here at home to continue the enjoyment of our fandom, and their musical 'education'. #nextgenerationfans

    4.2k CULTURE Why documentaries have the power to change the world 20 December 2016 5:32PM UTC | By: GUEST BLOGGER JOIN Join the fight against extreme poverty EmailJoin In today’s “post-truth” world, educating ourselves about important issues and finding varied and reliable information sources is as critical as ever. Recent events across the globe coupled with how we obtain, share, and replicate news of these events demands we step up and seek out quality sources of information about our world and what is happening in it. Documentaries have the power to educate. Documentary films are an in-depth and informative resource which are a perfect platform to create dialogue. They serve as powerful tools that bring important topics to the table in a captivating way that also sparks conversation, and sometimes even social movements. Character-driven, feature-length documentaries focused on the stories of real people put a human face on global issues that might otherwise seem distant or unrelatable. Hearing and seeing these real experiences through the dedicated work of documentary filmmakers helps us put ourselves in the shoes of others, building bridges of empathy in a world that desperately needs our engagement and compassion. Not only do documentaries provide an opportunity to understand and connect with the world, they are also a great way to gather together with friends to watch and engage around the important issues of our times. Watching more documentaries is important, but talking about them together in person is equally important. With social media channels at our fingertips 24/7, we often miss out on face-to-face conversations, yet these conversations are needed. They remind us of the real people on the opposite side of an issue, the complexity and nuances of the different conditions in which we live, and the importance of honest and earnest discussions. A ONE Campaign film screening event in the US. A great way to delve into the potential of documentary film is to host a film club. Film clubs put the great resource of documentary film together with real-time conversations. Think of it as the quick version of a book club, a chance to learn about, engage with, and take action on issues with others, that also allows you to pool your resources, knowledge, and energy toward making the world a better place. Coming together to watch and discuss a documentary is an efficient way for a group of busy people to start conversations about meaningful and timely content. It’s simple. First, pick a documentary. Influence Film Club can help you with its documentary recommendations, free film club resources, and discussion guides online at www.influencefilmclub.com. Then invite others to join you—the young, the old, the engaged, the disconnected, the believers, and the skeptics—because the world needs us all in conversations about things that matter and that elevate our humanity. Connect to the global community through documentaries, and remember that now is the time to engage in making a difference in our collective future. Influence Film Club is a non-profit organisation with an online platform that seeks to engage new and diverse audiences around documentary film. Find resources and documentary recommendations to watch alone or with your film club at Influence Film Club.

    I've been following @U2.com for 20+ years ,but I never heard of U2Start... thanks for the tip, dmway. We made a point of meeting the host Chris from the @U2 podcast in Montreal last June. Great community of fans, all over the world. A true reflection of who U2 are as a band and as individuals. Cheers.

    “SOS appeal. For god’s sake, help us to get the children out.” This desperate appeal, made by Belarusian and Ukrainian doctors, was sent by fax and received by our founder Adi Roche, in January 1991. The message was simple and to the point, begging someone—anyone—to take the children away from Chernobyl’s radioactive environment so that their bodies had some chance of recovery. In 1991 Adi formally founded the organisation on receipt of this desperate fax. By the following summer she had coordinated the first group of Chernobyl children to arrive in Ireland for recuperative holidays. Soon after she formed CCI in an effort to help alleviate the suffering and offer hope to the children of Chernobyl. This year for the third time, the Naciones Unidas will call on countries all over the world to commemorate the inaugural ‘International Chernobyl Disaster Remembrance Day’ on April 26th. This call for commemoration came as a direct result of Adi Roche’s appeal to the General Assembly on the 30th Anniversary of the disaster in April 2016.

    Many of the children in our 'Homes of Hope' programme come from difficult beginnings but with CCI’s help and intervention face brighter futures. One such boy is Daniil*. Danill* was not even three years old when he arrived at a CCI Home of Hope. Very nervous and scared, he would cry and cry at the slightest sound. His transition to the ‘Home of Hope’ was made easier by the fact his sister and brother were already at the home before him. The children had previously lived with their alcoholic mother and her abusive partner. The children were completely neglected and had lived on potato peelings from their neighbours bins. They suffered ongoing physical abuse from their mother’s partner, as did their mother. She was frequently assaulted in front of her children. She tried to leave but without supports structures around her was unable and she attempted suicide. Fortunately, CCI’s team intervened and discovered her in time. For years after Daniil* traumatic start in life he struggled and while he can still be a little nervous, he is a lot more content and well settled into his new family and is thriving with their love and support. He is now able to reach his fullest potential through social integration and loving, supportive care. Daniil’s older sister Petra* is now studying in Art College. His brother Ivan* is studying to be a builder and he and Petra come home as often as they can to visit their youngest sibling. *The names of the children have been changed to protect their privacy and the privacy of their family.

    Hi. This week has been the hardest, trying to understand how people could elect a man that supports torture, racism and spreads hate and violence among people. I cried so much till I had no more tears left. If I could, I would leave Brazil. I just lost all my hopes in humankind. U2, you are one of the reasons why I don't give up living. Thank you for existing.
