Real Scottish Music in Scottish Tongue

maxresdefault

I had a song shared with me by an English friend on my Facebook wall, the bottom video below,  and me being me, it got me all Scottish, because I am Scottish maybe? Many people I speak with say “I am 5th or 6th generation Scottish” or “I have Scottish Blood through great grand parents” and I like that, people wanting to know if they are a part of my land and involved in the true spirit of being Scottish. I speak to a few who have traced bloodlines back to Scotland, one friend from the USA has the same 2nd name as me and their father says they go all the way back to Scotland and we shared photos, some similar looking faces, so you never know. I could be related to thousands of American people for example, there are only 5 Million here in Scotland but at one point there was a mass leaving to the newly discovered America. I just thought I would share a few songs, all the best understanding them :D But if you have Scottish blood, do enjoy. Keep in mind, the USA is full of people with European blood, almost all  Americans are descendants of immigrants, be them through African/American’s or Europeans, Irish and Scottish seem to be the main ones

USA WARNING – Asian Dog Flu Strikes Chicago – Keep Dogs Apart!

As if American doesn't have bigger problems that this just now!

As if American doesn’t have bigger problems that this just now!

Via: Seems to be breaking news just now. Via http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-32346175

This is a story I thought about not sharing due to the ‘ISIS in the USA’ story being reported by thousands of people. But I think it’s only fair if American people have dogs and do not know about this disease “KEEP YOUR DOG AWAY FROM ALL OTHER DOGS” This could kill millions of Dogs and could be in other countries. I don’t know how Pet control works in the USA but here in Scotland/UK if someone buys a dog, moves here and has a dog, any way or reason a person will be bringing a pet onto this Island here, the Dog/Pet will be quarantined for 4 Months before they are allowed into the civilian population, this is a law we have always had, it annoy’s some, luckily most are ok with it. This is why we never have any issues with any pets coming in and spreading disease. Put it this way an Ebola Monkey would have to wait 4 months also at Animal Control Centres at Airports, any animal would, Ebola found in monkey? and we realise why we have these laws as Ebola would not spread, common sense law right? We are an Island here, dogs and all animals/pets coming into the UK are tested to make sure no virus that is bad for dogs or other pets are present, things that harm other animals or humans is possible, so we have tight laws! This is the official Government site on the matter https://www.gov.uk/pet-travel-quarantine I usually leave links below, I have left 2 and the source news above from the BBC here in the UK. This, as I say seems to be breaking just now. Please spread this around, make sure you protect your Dog and other’s dogs. This will get pandemic level for Dogs so it’s important to maybe change your dog’s walkies habits. Consult your Vet of course to make sure I am not making this story up. Keep up with the story and Chicago is a pandemic area for pets right now, PLEASE watch the quick video below so you know what signs you need to look out for, if you see any, don’t take your dog to the vet and expose to other dogs, call your vet and I am sure they will come and test the dog, at least this is my reading of the story, I may be wrong. Just use common sense peeps, this kills dogs, all dogs, not just street dogs (If you have them) it just kills all dogs if not checked and you have knowledge about the disease for dogs, this is why I put the video below. America, PLEASE!!! Check the video and your Dog! If you are in or near Chicago and your dog seems under the weather, call who you need to call, don’t take your dog into a vet with other dogs. Sorry to repeat but I love my Dog and would be hurt if anything happened, I know you are the same, so be safe America.

~~~~Story~~~~

A rare outbreak of Asian dog flu has reached almost epidemic levels in Chicago. There is concern it could easily spread to other areas of the country, and people are being urged to try to keep dogs out of contact with each other. At least 1,000 animals have become ill so far, as Ben Bland reports.

Anyone who knows me in real life or anyone who reads what I write or even speaks to me on Skype, type, whatever, will know I am a soft hearted guy. I don’t fall for this ‘Men must act tough lads’ Don’t get me wrong if I have to be the ‘Tough Guy’ I will play that part because that’s all it is to me as I grow older, I would rather feel, belong, be real, feel real, understand feelings, open my mind enough to cry. My oldest son is very like me, he used to be a doorman when he was 18/19 years old up town in Edinburgh, but what a heart this boy has. He shared this with me knowing it would blow me away and touch me. I opened the link not expecting anything really then I sat at the end visibly touched. The real version of this song has a higher faster tempo, what Calum who is from Hull in England did with this song was just mindblowing, he took an already amazing song, slowed it down, brought it down a few notes and turned it into a melody. Others might hate it but I love it. I can’t even leave the lyrics below as he only sing 2/3 of the song and at different stages. I hope wherever you are in the World you enjoy this amazing piece of singing by a guy opening his heart and soul to the whole of the UK live on TV trying to change his life. I will post his 2nd song tomorrow, this was from last Saturday and I am not a huge TV fan, just football (Soccer) and movies mostly

Music school tipped for old Edinburgh Royal High School takeover

I have been around this old building a few times, amazing old architecture from old Edinburgh. It has lay empty for half a century but now the Scottish Government has decided to pump lots of money into a renovation and give it to a music school. I love when old building’s are giving to any of the arts. Edinburgh is a very historical, theatrical, musical, festival place, every year there are over 20 festivals for the arts, all the arts. So I welcome money being spent in my City for this rather than spending it on WAR!! This is what we want in Scotland, a good country away from War with the money to educate further, Scotland is 3rd in Education in the World as things stand, the sky is the limit here, I used to live 2 minutes from here, just to the right of this image is the U.S. Consulate Edinburgh and it’s an amazing part of town with a stunning view of Arthur Seat and Edinburgh Castle . http://shaunynews.com/2014/04/22/world-health-organizations-ranking-of-the-worlds-health-systems/

~~~~Story~~~~

The iconic Royal High School building could finally have found a permanent use after lying empty for almost 50 years Edinburgh’s oldest independent music school, St Mary’s, has been tipped to take over the building.

The old debating chamber in the Royal High School's Main Building

Many hoped the building, near the east end of Princes Street, would become a permanent home for the Scottish Parliament. But rather than the harsh noise of political debate, the building is set to be filled with the sound of the choristers of St Mary’s. The school was founded in 1880 and trains the choir of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in the city.

St Mary’s Music School emerged as the favourite candidate of the Royal High School Preservation Trust, a new charity formed to resist proposals for a six star hotel on the site.

The possibility that the school could move to the former Royal High School building is an unexpected development but a welcome one

St Mary’s spokeswoman

The Trust’s plans could mark the end of one of Edinburgh’s most bitter and protracted planning disputes, which has seen the council branded “philistines” after they backed the hotel plans. Hotel bosses want to add two modern wings to the main body of the Neoclassical masterpiece, which critics say is equivalent to “putting Mickey Mouse ears on the Mona Lisa.”

The proposal for St Mary’s to take up residence at the site was described as an “unexpected but welcome development” for the school, with one supporter hailing the two institutions as “a perfect fit.”

One inside source said: “What is being proposed is a school within a school. What could be more appropriate?” “It works extremely well and uses the listed building brilliantly. There is a small concert hall in the centre, there are practice rooms in the two big anterooms, there are classrooms.” A spokeswoman for St Mary’s confirmed that the school had been actively seeking a building with space for teaching and performance.

She said: “The board is actively considering whether this should be an extension of at our existing premises or a move to another building in Edinburgh. The possibility that the school could move to the former Royal High School building is an unexpected development but a welcome one.”

She went on to say: “It is very early days and we will have to see what happens, but perhaps it is fitting that a landmark building should become the home of a national institution.” Proposals for the luxury hotel are ongoing with DHP, the company making the plans, expected to present their intentions for work on the site by the end of next month. Edinburgh City Council. which owns the A-listed building, has already granted DHP a 125-year lease on the property, but it is conditional on their proposal gaining planning approval.

The Royal High School Preservation Trust was created after a rowdy public meeting in February of this year, when 300 residents gathered at a hearing to criticise the hotel plans.

Back in the late 1800's

Back in the late 1800’s

A source from the trust said: “The aim first and foremost is to protect and preserve the building. If the music school wasn’t in the frame, the trust would be looking for another sustainable use.”

Neil Baxter, secretary of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland, said: “There are two viable options on the table and that gives Edinburgh City Council a challenge. After many decades it seems likely that this hugely important building will be brought back to life, reinvigorating a part of the city centre which has been too long neglected.”

The 189-year-old Royal High School building was rejected as a home for the Scottish Parliament on the grounds that it was too small and would be hard to defend from terrorist attacks.

Iran urges India, China & Russia to counter NATO missile system

So, India, China and Russia could side with Iran in protest at the NATO Missile shields. These missile are shields are all American owned around Russia, China and Iran and annoying all three countries. Obama’s recent trip to India to meet with Narendra Modi was to ask India if the USA could place more Missile shields near the Chinese and Russian borders, India said NO to Obama and have since started bilateral talks with Iran, China and Russia to get them removed. Peace was found with Iran. Look at 3 years ago when it was odds on that the USA would enter Iran for War and to take their Nuclear facilities down. Here we are in 2015 and there will be no US/Iran war, so we must be happy. I am still frustrated at people stating it was “Iran/USA Agreement” only, this is not correct, this was the international community. Perhaps the G8? But India, the 2nd biggest nation on Earth siding with China and Russia is not good news

Iran urges India l China & Russia to counter NATO missile system
Via Khara Sach on You Tube

Iran has announced its readiness to cooperate with Russia, China and India on the issue of NATO’s missile shield and related threats from the military bloc, the head of its defence ministry said in Moscow.

“I’d like to support the idea of developing multifaceted defense cooperation between China, Iran, India and Russia to counter NATO eastwards expansion and installing a missile shield in Europe,” Hossein Dehghan said on Thursday, at an international security conference in Moscow.

Hours later Dehghan was cited by RIA Novosti as saying that Russia, China and Iran may hold tri-party defense talks.

“We discussed certain aspects of regional security. It was proposed to hold a trilateral meeting of Russia, Iran and China,” Dehghan said after meeting with Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu.

Despite a deal on Tehran’s nuclear program, the US is still going to site its missile defence installations in Europe. They are being deployed over a perceived threat from “nuclear Iran” – a pretext which Moscow called a “fairytale.” “The threat to NATO countries posed by the proliferation of ballistic missiles continues to increase… the framework [of the Iran nuclear program] agreement does not change that fact,” NATO spokeswoman Oana Lungescu told Sputnik. According to Russia, the controversial missile shield in Europe is staying because “the Missile Defense System was never about Iran.”

“This serves as yet more proof that references to the ‘Iranian [missile] threat’ served as a smokescreen, whereas the genuine objective is the creation of an anti-missile program with quite a different purpose,”the Russian Foreign Ministry wrote.

The US has for years insisted the missile defense system is needed for protection against potential missiles from rogue states, such as North Korea and Iran. Moscow strongly objected to new unilateral NATO military installations, citing national security threats. Russia proposed the creation of a joint system, but Washington rejected it.

You have 5 days from now so this coming Monday 20th April is your last chance to call the number below and get registered. I hope people have not left it too late!

~~~~Story~~~~

More than four million people in Scotland have registered to vote ahead of the UK general election, almost 106,000 more than in 2010.

Just over 4.2 million people registered to vote in last year’s independence referendum, the largest electorate ever recorded in Scotland. But this figure included 16 and 17-year-olds who are not eligible to vote on 7 May. The deadline for registering to vote in the general election is 20 April.

With the exception of 2009, Scottish electorates have increased each year since 2003. Figures from the National Records of Scotland show that by 2 March a total of 4.04 million people in Scotland had registered to vote in the 2015 general election, around 94% if the adult population.

Between March 2014 and March 2015 the electorate increased by 0.2%. There has been an increase of just over 4% in the eligible electorate since the 2010 general election.

GOP war on science: House bill slashes funding for studies on Medicare, guns, climate change

This is Austerity, Criminal in a living sense. All these sector cuts and why? Yeah, to have more money for War and arming the US Cops. Happening all over the World but nowhere n ear these numbers in Dollars. No wonder average Mr and Mrs America are hunting to eat. You can’t grow your own food as it’s illegal. This is The Republicans call here. This is war against the people by cutting money for almost everything. I have an idea!! How about nobody pays GOD in the USA for a year and save BILLIONS? A war on Religion? Why always Science and progress? Sickens me. And it happens near where I live also. Always plenty money for War but not to feed a poor family jobless and almost homeless. Sickening and I will be vocal in it at home here and wherever I see it in the so called ‘Free World’

~~~~Story~~~~

Republicans on the House Science, Space and Technology Committee have offered a proposal that would dramatically cut the funding for social sciences and geosciences. On Wednesday, Republicans revealed their 189-page reauthorization of the budgets for the National Science Foundation (NSF) and other federal research institutes.

According to Science Insider, the $7.6 billion bill represents $126 million less than President Barack Obama requested in his budget. But more importantly, it reallocates NSF funds from scientific areas that Republicans find politically problematic.

Geosciences, which includes the study of climate change, would be cut by $165 million. Social and behavioral sciences would see funding cut by $140 million, almost half of what it is now. Education would also get a $100 million cut.

Biology, computing, engineering, and math and physical sciences would get an increase of $100 million under the Republican plan.

Slate’s Dave Weigel pointed out in 2013 that social sciences was a popular target for conservative lawmakers, who did not appreciate research like an NSF-funded gun study that validated Democratic talking points on the legitimacy of the “gun nut” culture.

The Boston Globe reported this week that a Massachusetts Institute of Technology study about how Medicare changes affect the political views of seniors would be on the chopping block, as would a Harvard University study about the impact of China’s one-child policy.

“We have to question spending nearly $700,000 of taxpayer dollars to fund a climate change musical or over $220,000 to study animal photos in National Geographic,” Science Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-TX) insisted. “It’s the role of Congress to make sure we’re using limited federal funds for the highest priority research.”

Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III (D-MA) accused his colleagues on the committee of advancing “selective science.”

He said that Republicans had taken an “opportunistic approach to defunding or attacking certain areas of science that you either don’t agree with or that you don’t want to see what the results might actually be.”

Celtic Fans hand Thousands of pounds worth of Food for Food bank’s at tonight’s game!

Honouring the example and legacy of Brother Walfrid who started Celtic FC in 1888 for the poor Irish Immigrants

Honouring the example and legacy of Brother Walfrid who started Celtic FC in 1888 for the poor Irish Immigrants

Via: http://www.celticfc.net/news/7994 With a lot of pictures saved from tonight before our 4-1 win against Kilmarnock http://thecelticnetwork.com/2015/04/15/celtic-go-8-clear-needing-11-points-for-league-goals-video/

When we see this amazing Celtic support give so much to the needy it makes you understand being a Celtic fan isn’t JUST Football, winning, losing, winning trophies, being a Celtic fan means so much more. The very fabric of our history, why we became a club in 1888 are seen today still and what a fitting way to celebrate Brother Walfrid. Celtic, my team, my club started in 1888 by Brother Walfrid to feed the poor Irish Immigrants coming into Scotland. He is immortalised outside the front of the main stand (Image above) for all time. Just check the volume of food left tonight by Celtic fans for the Poor. Thousands of pounds worth of food, I am proud to be a Celtic fan, proud of my Irish side, proud of what my club, my people stand for and what we do and why we do it.

~~~~Story~~~~

ON April 17, 1915 Brother Walfrid passed away. He was a father-figure then and an inspirational father-figure now, 100 years after his death.

Walfrid’s role in the founding of Celtic was key. Not only did he achieve his aim of funding the Poor Children’s Dinner tables to feed the hungry of the East End, he also brought together visionaries who ensured that Celtic would have a lasting impact on football and society in Glasgow and far beyond. Poverty and hunger are still in evidence in both the East End of Glasgow and beyond. To mark the 100th anniversary of Walfrid’s passing Celtic, its charitable arm, Celtic FC Foundation, and Celtic supporters’ groups will pay their own tribute to Brother Walfrid.

To support the principles upon which Walfrid founded the club, Celtic supporters will be having a food collection to support the work of Foodbanks in and around the West of Scotland. On Wednesday, April 15 when Celtic play at home to Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premiership, Celtic supporters are invited to bring items requested by the Foodbanks. As well as being supported by Celtic FC, the collection is backed by the following Celtic fans’ groups and forums:

Affiliation Of Registered Celtic Supporters’ Clubs, AICSC, Celtic Graves Society, Celtic-Minded, CQN, Celtic Supporters’ Association, Celtic Trust, Celtic Underground, Etims, Hail Hail Media, Green Brigade, Huddleboard, The Kano Foundation and Kerrydale Street. Under the banner of Walfrid’s Legacy, the supporters’ groups and forums have released the following statement: “One hundred years after the passing of Brother Walfrid there is still hunger and need in our communities. Walfrid’s vision was the formation of a successful football club based on the core principle of the alleviation of poverty in our society.

“Walfrid’s legacy is a thriving Celtic Football Club with a support fundamentally committed to his ideals of supporting those in need locally, nationally and far beyond national borders. To honour Walfrid and his ideals we would urge all Celtic supporters able to attend the match against Kilmarnock on April 15 to bring a donation for the foodbanks we are supporting.” In addition to the food collection, on Friday, April 17, Celtic FC and Celtic FC Foundation will mark the 100th anniversary of Walfrid’s passing by hosting a lunch for 500 individuals from the city’s homeless community in the Number 7 Restaurant in Celtic Park.

Celtic Chief Executive Peter Lawwell said: “We are delighted to be working with our supporters on this magnificent initiative. So many years after our formation, Celtic continues to be very well aware of its continued social responsibility and the club does more charitable work now than ever before. “We are proud that Brother Walfrid’s spirit remains so strong at Celtic and through such initiatives we will continue to honour the ambitions of the club’s founders and make a positive difference to the lives of people in need.”

Tony Hamilton, CEO of Celtic FC Foundation, added: “The phrase ‘more than a football club’ rings true with this joint approach from the club, its supporters and its charitable arm. “The story of Celtic, as seen by our Founding Father, is alive and well today more than 125 years after our formation and I hope that both of these events will be supported.” For the foodbank collection, we would urge fans to bring donations of the following items:

– Sugar (500g)
– Fruit juice (carton)
– Soup , Pasta sauces, Tomatoes (tinned)
– Cereals
– Tea Bags/instant coffee
– Rice/pasta
– Tinned meat/fish, Tinned fruit
– Jam, Biscuits or snack bars

Donations will be collected on The Celtic Way by volunteers from the Celtic support. The aim of the collection is specifically for food items as detailed above. The collection will benefit a number of Foodbanks including, Loaves and Fishes, Coatbridge Foodbank and Hamilton Food Drop among others. Any cash donations will be passed to Celtic FC Foundation lunch for our homeless citizens on April 17 and the charities they are supporting.

Caught this here http://rt.com/news/249725-netanyahu-iran-s300-concerns/

One thing we know now is Russia and Israel are talking, this is a great sign, sadly many will still drag up this 10 year old story and get in the way of peace. When the last Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad started a chain of events leading most Israel supporters to believe Iran will blow Israel to hell and back. Well it was never going to happen, they were empty words and it was also in 2005! 10 years ago, I think it’s time for some to lay this to rest and understand peace has been found via the Russian resolution that was signed by the World community. Iran can’t make a bomb, they get inspected at will, always there are people from UN or Nato in Iran making sure Iran want Nuclear reactor for same reasons as most countries, to keep the lights on and heat the place up. The disgusting words spoken 10 years ago were describing Israel as a “disgraceful blot” that should be “wiped off the face of the earth”. This was 10 years ago and trying to get people to give peace a chance is very hard. For the first time in many years there was no war and Iran was not blown to bits, the World community all signed an agreement with heavy restrictions, allowing heavy sanctions to be lifted from Iran and allow them the same right to have Nuclear Power to fuel their Country AND PEACE! When it looked likely 3 yeas ago the USA would invade Iran, so this is good news, people who don’t see it as good news are the evil ones wanting to light the flame of war in the face on peace. I did an article “The Iran the USA won’t let it’s people see” I would ask ANYONE with doubt that Iran don’t want peace to read the article below and watch the video below, it is a Video that does get banned by the US Media. Why? Your guess is as good as mine. Sadly American senators are trying to stall this peace deal due to siding with Israel, luckily the World community is in agreement. I am just sharing a story, as usual links at the bottom pointing to the same story. Never believe me, please do your own research. 

The ‘Real Iran’ the people in the USA are not allowed to see!!!

Following Russia’s decision to lift a ban on supplying S-300 missile systems to Iran, the Israeli PM has called President Putin to express his “grave concerns” – and received a detailed explanation of defensive weapons and the logic behind Moscow’s move. According to a statement released by the Kremlin, Vladimir Putin “gave a detailed explanation of the logic behind Russia’s decision…emphasizing the fact that the tactical and technical specifications of the S-300 system make it a purely defensive weapon; therefore, it would not pose any threat to the security of Israel or other countries in the Middle East.”

The assurances do not appear to have had the desired effect. In a statement released by his office, the Israeli PM expressed “grave concerns regarding the decision,” and told Russia’s president that this step“will only encourage Iranian aggression in the region and further undermine the stability of the Middle East.” Russia signed an $800 million deal in 2007 to ship five S-300 divisions, which are composed of radars and multiple interception missile launchers, only to postpone the deal three years later, during the presidency of Dmitry Medvedev.

It was done as a sign of solidarity with Western partners who were imposing increasingly tough sanctions against the Islamic Republic – the missile systems themselves were never on the international sanctions list. The reversal comes amid major progress in the negotiation framework between Iran and six leading world powers over the regulation of the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program, which should produce a final deal this summer.

Moscow believes at this stage there is “no longer need for this kind of embargo,” Russian FM Sergey Lavrov said, reiterating that “from the Russian side it was unilateral and voluntary.” Russia has also started supplying grain, equipment and construction materials to Iran in exchange for crude oil under the so-called “oil-for-goods” barter deal, which had earlier sparked dissatisfaction in the West.

The US officials also seemed displeased with Russia’s latest “non-constructive” moves, with State Department spokesperson Marie Harf however admitting that it did not violate any international norms. “We don’t believe it’s constructive at this time for Russia to move forward with this,” she said, adding that Secretary Kerry had voiced his concerns too. For its part of the future deal with Iran, the West is promising it will drop some of its sanctions against Tehran – particularly in the oil and financial sectors. However on Tuesday the German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier warned that it was important to wait until the Iranians fulfill their side of the bargain. “I’ve told some US senators that they should not now try to unnecessarily impede further negotiations,”he told the media when asked about Russia’s contract in Lubeck in Germany on Tuesday. “But I’ll also say that it is also too early to talk about rewards at this stage.”
