Some nice photos taken around Ireland www.trekearth.com/gallery/Europe/Ireland and www.geograph.co.uk a website that aims to have a photo online from every square kilometre in the British Isles.
Crosserlough GFC have a new website. They launched it on September 30th and they plan to update it regularly with fixtures, results and photos. www.crosserloughgfc.com
Stockbyte, is (was) a Kerry based photo stock library founded by Jerry Kennelly 10 years ago and recently sold to Getty Images for $135m.
Anyway, Jerry Kennelly won the Ernst & Young Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year Award last year and was set a challenge by John O'Shea of GOAL to set up a viable photographic related business in Africa. This is the result and congratulations to everyone involved. The photos are brilliant. http://www.createafrica.com
Two anniversaries coming up in April 2007, the 21st anniversary of the Chernobyl power station explosion, and the 39th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King.
Watch this if you can and then have a think about whether we really do need nuclear power http://todayspictures.slate.com/inmotion/essay_chernobyl/ (requires flash player plugin and is better on a fast connection)
Here's Martin Luther King's famous 'I have a dream' speech http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/mlkihaveadream.htm We've all heard it but it's still powerful stuff.
... and for anyone who thinks history doesn't repeat itself, here's an excerpt from a speech made by Martin Luther King against the war in Vietnam a year before he died....
"REV. DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.: I come to this platform tonight to make a passionate plea to my beloved nation. This speech is not addressed to Hanoi or to the National Liberation Front. It is not addressed to China or to Russia. Nor is it an attempt to overlook the ambiguity of the total situation and the need for a collective solution to the tragedy of Vietnam. Neither is it an attempt to make North Vietnam or the National Liberation Front paragons of virtue, nor to overlook the role they must play in the successful resolution of the problem. While they both may have justifiable reasons to be suspicious of the good faith of the United States, life and history give eloquent testimony to the fact that conflicts are never resolved without trustful give and take on both sides.
Tonight, however, I wish not to speak with Hanoi and the National Liberation Front, but rather to my fellow Americans. That is at the outset a very obvious and almost facile connection between the war in Vietnam and the struggle I and others have been waging in America. A few years ago there was a shining moment in that struggle. It seemed as if there was a real promise of hope for the poor, both black and white, through the poverty program. There were experiments, hopes, new beginnings. Then came the buildup in Vietnam, and I watched this program broken and eviscerated, as if it were some idle political plaything of a society gone mad on war, and I knew that America would never invest the necessary funds or energies in rehabilitation of its poor so long as adventures like Vietnam continued to draw men and skills and money like some demonic destructive suction tube."
