    There is another @SeanLowe009 claiming to be in U2’s mgmt and thinking fans are gullible enough to believe Bono will do house visits for as cheap as €300. Was wanting me to hook up via an app called hangout. Kept pestering even though I asked if I could pay by carrier pigeon.

    I quit smoking a long time ago. I foolishly had 'just one', about a year ago, when I was drunk. I quit smoking, yet again, for Lent. It's now officially been a week. I also went from Atomic Bomb to Lemon a few minutes ago. Happy Lemon to you too, Illumination 70. ☺️

    I was all these shows in Chicago. I remember thinking that only Bono could pull of that marching walk he does in that cap. At first I was offended and then thought, 'Dude, it's Bono. Look at his face. He's being a cock.' He looks so cool. When he sings the first part, and is standing still, 'm four rows away from him. These Vertigo shows (all of them) were some of the greatest nights of my life. Thanks for posting.

    I was in a masters degree program for classical guitar performance in my 20's..Too much head banging and I had to stop because the notes were spinning; I could not concentrate; blah blah. I blamed myself and pretty much stopped playing. I took good care of it but have barely touched that guitar. Yesterday, I restrung it and decided to play. I got my tone back. I could also concentrate on both my left and right hand My head kept buffering and rebooting yet I could pay attention when it stopped. This has happened in the past. This time, it feels more permanent. I played, slept, got up and played as much as I could again today. There were moments I was very happy with how I sounded. The best thing is I did not feel my headache while I was playing because of the endorphin rush I was getting. Hopefully, this is here to stay. If not, it's been a great Friday night into a happy and very early Sunday morning. 😊.

    A note from the moderators: It has been brought to our attention on several occasions, people trying to impersonate one of the band members or someone associated with the band. Please be aware of a few things: -The only official social media pages for the band are the ones with the authenticity checkmark like this: main social media: https://www.instagram.com/u2/ https://twitter.com/u2 https://www.facebook.com/u2/ https://www.youtube.com/user/U2official/ https://u2.tumblr.com/ -No member of the band currently has personal social media accounts. All communication comes from the official pages listed above. -Any account that claims to be a band member and says “personal account of [Bono, Larry, Edge, Adam or any variation of their name]” most definitely is NOT a member of the band. -At no time will any member of the band, the band’s management, the moderators, or anyone associated with the band ever contact you via private message asking for passwords, personal information, or money for (but not limited to) things such as meet and greets. In the event you should come across someone impersonating the band or someone associated with the band: -First and foremost, report that account to whichever social media platform you have seen it on. This is the biggest part of getting the impersonation stopped. -Please add the information in this thread to make others aware and to use caution. -If you don’t feel comfortable adding information here, send a private message to myself, Max and Bigwave so we can have a look at it.

    It’s still a developing story, but apparently there have been shootings at two mosques in Christchurch, NZ New Zealand seems to be such an idyllic place, it’s hard to believe such a thing has happened there. It’s a tragedy wherever it happens; I just wish these kinds of attacks would stop. Peace be with you, New Zealanders. I hope things return to relative normality as soon as possible. All sympathy to the victims and their families.

    I don't believe that this will be available on LP. Just CD and download from U2.com member account. I'm looking forward to it too. Sitting on my hands and waiting for the announcement that shipping has begun. I predict that it will be the soundtrack to the summer for many of us.

    This isn't in the Bible, it's a prayer song from my childhood which has been in my mind.. This is an excerpt from what is known as A prayer to Saint Francis.. Lord make me a channel of your peace Where there is hatred, let me bring love, Where there is offense,let me bring pardon, Where there is discord, let me bring union, Where there is error, let me bring truth, Where there is doubt ,let me bring faith, Where there is despair, let me bring hope, Where there is darkness, let me bring your light.... Amen 🎈🐺🌚🌒🎆

    283 HIV/AIDS These Zambian acrobats are flipping HIV taboos on their head 28 September 2018 3:47PM UTC | By: THOMSON REUTERS FOUNDATION JOIN Join the fight against extreme poverty EmailJoin Share on Facebook Save on Facebook Share on Twitter Share by Email This post was originally written by Emma Batha. Editing by Claire Cozens for Thomson Reuters Foundation The Zambian slum of Chibolya is notorious for crime and drugs, but acrobat Gift Chansa wants to get the township’s youth hooked on a very different high – circus. Chansa is co-founder of Circus Zambia, the country’s first social circus, which provides disadvantaged young people with education and job opportunities while teaching them everything from unicycling and fire-eating to tumbling and juggling. The circus also runs a “Clowns for Condoms” project to help tackle the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Zambia, where myths persist that the disease is linked to witchcraft. Set up in 2015, Circus Zambia has already gained international attention, performing in Britain, the United States, Japan, Belgium, the Netherlands and across Africa. Chansa grew up in Chibolya, a poor Lusaka township which one Zambian journalist recently likened to Sodom and Gomorrah. It is an image the charismatic acrobat is keen to dispel. He says young people are discriminated against and refused jobs simply for mentioning they come from Chibolya. “When you grow up there, no one takes you seriously,” Chansa told the Thomson Reuters Foundation during a tour of Britain this month. “So we wanted to say, ‘Look, not everybody is a criminal. There are young people coming up that are knowledgeable … young people that are ready to take over the world’. And that’s why we created the platform Circus Zambia.” Source: BBC What’s New? Circus Zambia UK Tour, August 2018 While in London, Chansa met Queen Elizabeth to receive the Queen’s Young Leader Award which recognises “exceptional people” from across the Commonwealth who are transforming lives in their communities and beyond. Drink & drugs The eldest of six children, Chansa never knew his father. He was raised by his mother and grandparents, who provided him with his distinctive name, calling him a “a gift to the family”. There were no parks, libraries or youth centres in the township so Chansa and his friends, including Circus Zambia co-founder Benard Kaumba, amused themselves with acrobatic contests in the street. In 2014, Chansa and Kaumba were invited to train at a circus school in northern China under a scheme sponsored by Beijing after their talents were spotted by a Chinese circus troupe visiting Lusaka. Chansa, 27, and Kaumba, 28, say if they had not discovered circus they could have easily been dragged into a world of drink and drugs. “Things were hard for me. Circus kept me busy and helped me stay away from bad influences,” said Kaumba, dressed in his brightly coloured African-print tumbling costume. “When you go back and see your friends, you see their life is just drugs,” he added, reeling off a list of illicit substances available on the streets of Chibolya. Today the circus boasts 15 performers and works with 80 children. It has new premises which include a library, class room and training room and is raising money to finish building a theatre. Source: Circus Zambia Circus Zambia is part of a growing global movement of social circuses including Circus Kathmandu in Nepal, created by survivors of trafficking, and Circolombia in Colombia, which works with children from areas where gangs and drugs are rife. Through circus skills, marginalised young people learn self-esteem, discipline, trust and team-work as well as physical fitness and creative expression. Social circuses also use entertainment as a tool to engage communities on social or health issues such as alcohol abuse or HIV/AIDS. Juju myths Two years ago, Chansa watched a young friend die of HIV/AIDS after he refused medicine, believing he had been cursed. Chansa is now determined to help tackle widespread ignorance around an epidemic that has left one in six people in Lusaka HIV positive. “In Zambia it’s hard to talk about sex, nobody talks about sex,” said Chansa, who believes the HIV rate is even higher in Chibolya. “A lot of people will say (HIV/AIDS) is witchcraft, it’s juju, and then they won’t take their medicine – and then they die. We want to say it’s not juju.” Last year Circus Zambia launched Clowns for Condoms, an initiative that uses circus to bust taboos around HIV, increase awareness and distribute condoms. Chansa says their colourful wigs and costumes help overcome barriers. “It’s easy to attract people when you go into the community and people see you dressed as clowns,” he said. “You can (talk to) them just there and then, so that’s why we use circus.” Chansa wants to expand Circus Zambia to other regions and ensure it has a secure future for the next generation of performers. He is also dreaming big for his own future. “I want to be a politician,” Chansa said. “That’s my ambition – because people don’t understand what young people are going through, especially in communities like mine.” ONE welcomes the contributions of guest bloggers but does not necessarily endorse the views, programs, or organisations highlighted.
