I was just watching the BBC News at 10 o'clock and they were giving this lengthy report on Anna Nicole Smith's death. She apparently was found dead in a Hard Rock's Hotel room in the States.
This is just weird. Also not while ago, the sister of chick who married the Prince of the Spanish Royal family -- I don't like monarchies --, was also found dead in her flat.
It's weird because in both cases it seems that the media has given, and this is my personal and very uninformed opinion, too much coverage to these news. There are a lot of other things happening in the world that are not brought up to the public by the generalistic mass media, but instead they spend, or it felt like, 20 minutes talking about how and speculating about why Anna Nicole Smith died...
Weird, weird, weird...
Get another sweet little 80-year-old lady to yell *BINGO*!
It turns out that this song:
Has a really nice tune, but the lyrics (spanish) are, to me, really really sad... don't know why...
It can turn me down in a jiffy...
According to historian Professor Niall Ferguson, we need to rethink our understanding of the 20th century. There were not, he says, two world wars and a ?cold? war, but a single Hundred Years' War. It was not nationalism that powered these conflicts, but empires. The driving force was not class or socialism ? race was. And finally, it was not the West that triumphed; in fact, power slowly and steadily migrated towards the new empires of the East.
In this website, Professor Ferguson explains why the last century was the most bloody in world history. An extensive chronology of the events that made this the ?age of hatred? shows how bloody conflict ebbed and flowed throughout the period. And there are many opportunities to take your interest further, from the multitude of links in the chronology to a comprehensive selection of resources.
It's a really enlightening documentary. Short, to the point. More4 is growing on me...
