At a press conference today The Dalai Lama said he would have to resign as leader of Tibet's government-in-exile if violence by protesters in the region worsens.

Yesterday Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao blamed supporters of the Dalai Lama for the recent violence in Tibet.

The Dalai Lama dared Wen to investigate the protest in China.
He said “Prime minister come here and investigate thoroughly all our files, or record my speeches.“

The current protest’s are the most violent ones until now.

The power of the Greek Orthodox church

If you are living in Greece, and you have a relation, don't live together...

The Greek Orthodox church, which plays a significant role in the life of the Greeks, considered this to be tantamount to "prostitution".

The Greek government, who is trying to harmonise their law to 'European standards' (I still don't know what that means), is under fire by the Greek Orthodox church. A church which also have a powerful influence on Greek politics.

The proposed new law would allow unmarried couples to make their relationship legally binding, by signing a simple notarial contract.

But still, homosexual couples don't have any rights like heterosexual couples.

Money Money Money!

Paul McCartney's ex-wife received nearly 24.3 million pounds payout in divorce ruling.
McCartney (65) married the former model and charity campaigner Heather Mills (40) in 2002.
They separated four years later, blaming media intrusion into their private lives. The settlement equated to £17,000 for every day of the couple's marriage. Not bad...

Ban on t-shirts?

Cool brands are working more and launching products related to sex, whether it's perfume, t-shirts or boards.

Here, Addict launched an artist series with 3 XXX sketches to wear, made by Mode 2 artists, showing intimate parts of female body, beautiful drawn. Is sex the uner new trend to 'wear'? We know sex sells but the way the the brand delivers the 'sex' message is what matters for the consumer. Common people think it would be inappropriate, but some consumers, the target group, the trendsetters, would agree that this is a good marketing move.
Do you think that wearing this t-shirt will be allowed while attending class at an university in Turkey?
The t-shirts are not religious and/or political related...
The box of Pandora is open at the moment...
