The United Nations Secretary General’s Special Envoy for Malaria, Ray Chambers, organized an evening that focused on gender issues, child mortality, maternal mortality, the prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV/AIDS and health workers as a common solution to so many of the above challenges. The program read like a who’s who list so I’ll surely forget some when listing. I think that one of the best evening’s surprises was when Deepak Chopra introduced 50 Cent and invited him to introduce his own commitment to working with the World Food Programme..

HAGGARD: Well, I itch once in a while. I see one go by. But they you know, they’ve got readouts on the engine now that tell you when there’s somebody that jumps on the train. As an example, look at the Natural Gas boom (still going on) globally.

Somehow, though, it’s difficult to picture Fred Karger in a tent in Zuccotti Park.
Finding Inspiration For A Medieval Themed PartyIf you are still not sure about medieval parties, I recommend that you watch a few medieval films for inspiration before you start preparing your party. Remember that you are looking at medieval films for inspiration only (they do not need to be historically accurate) so all you want is a few ideas about medieval clothing, entertainment, decorations and food. Some good films to watch for inspiration are Franco Zeffirelli’s “Hamlet” with Mel Gibson.
