Celebrity promotion of charities ‘is largely ineffective’ says research

RAEL’S COMMENT: wonderful research ! Yes, “celebrities” are useless and purely a product of the capitalist medias conglomerates trying to create new idols, another name for gods. Its good to see that people do not need them to help just causes.

 

Celebrity promotion of charities is ineffective at raising awareness, but can make the stars more popular with the public, new research says.

 According to journal articles by three UK academics, “the ability of celebrity and advocacy to reach people is limited” and celebrities are “generally ineffective” at encouraging people to care about “distant suffering.”

The research, by Professor Dan Brockington, of The University of Manchester, Professor Spensor Henson, University of Sussex, and Dr Martin Scott, University of East Anglia, is published at time when many celebrities are campaigning for charity.

Professor Brockington and Professor Henson carried out two surveys, each of over 1,000 people to ask about celebrities and campaigning, as well as running focus groups.

They found that 66% of those surveyed could not link any celebrity with a list of seven well-known charities and aid organisations (NGOs) the researchers mentioned.

“Our survey found that while awareness of major NGOs brands was high, awareness of celebrity advocates for those brands was low,” they said in their article, published online in the International Journal of Cultural Studies.

Swastika Rehabilitation Week in Canada

Events were held all week on all continents in support of this precious cause in the eyes of Raelians who wish to change the opinion in Western countries about this symbol that has been around for thousands of years. It is peacefully revered by over a billion people now, especially in Asia; a symbol used everywhere on earth in major religions. 

In Canada, Raelians have held their events on Saturday, July 12 and once again this year, the campaign has not gone unnoticed despite the refusal from the giant billboard owners, claiming that it would displease some communities. 

In Quebec City, 25 people participated in this event with a human size balloon, placards and leaflets. On a predetermined route, the Raelians crossed hundreds of people overwhelmingly positive towards us. Donald Tremblay, in charge of the Quebec City region tells us: “One of the highlights was to meet a group of tourists from India … you imagine their reaction! On the way back, a few interested people to who we handed out flyers went directly online to access our site. The event lasted almost three hours and it was a great success! What a great team, what a beautiful harmony!!! “

The Raelian Movement explains the many recent UFO sightings in Canada

According to Chris Rutkowski, director of UFOlogy Research of Manitoba, a considerable number of Canadians have reported being the witness of a UFO sighting last year. In fact, UFOs have been reported in record numbers unequalled in 25 years. Mr. Rutkowski explained this phenomenon by suggesting that, “Perhaps, more people are simply searching for divine answers and catching a glimpse of something else.” Another possibility, as he explained, could be because “The downturn in the economy is leading to an increased desire by some people to look skyward for assistance.” Although this suggestion by Mr. Rutkowski is interesting, Raelians see it more as an apocalyptic sign.

Daniel Turcotte, leader of the Canadian Raelian Movement asserted, “This increase in UFO sightings only confirms our religious writings in which it is clearly stated that the Elohim of the Bible – the extraterrestrial scientists who created all life on earth – would be making increased appearances “to see the reactions of public authorities, governments, and the press.” In the message the Elohim gave to humanity through their messenger, Rael, they say: The only help we will give you will be to appear in the skies more and more frequently from now on in order to make people aware (…) and make them want to learn more about the truth that you are transmitting. Gradually, thanks to these increased sightings, public awareness will also increase and our presence will no longer trigger stupid adoration, but instead a deep desire within the population to make contact with us.”Read More

Rael launches ‘One Minute for Peace Campaign’

“If everyone on earth gives one minute of meditation for peace and love, then we can change the world.”
Maitreya Rael, July 2012

In a recent address, Rael, spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement, proposed to have as many people as possible give just one minute of their time to meditate for peace.

“What we think, what we express and what we feel is affecting everything else in the universe and of course everything on Earth,” Rael said. We are powerful brain wave transmitters and the Earth needs peace and love.”   Read More

Assange stakeout has cost nearly $12 million

RAEL’S COMMENT: a waste of money which would have been better used helping homeless and starving people.

As WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange marks his 777th day in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, the Metropolitan Police has spent over $11.8 million on guarding the embassy.

Assange has been detained without charge for 1,337 days – and 777 of those days have been spent in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, according to the latest WikiLeaks statement.

Meanwhile, the price tag for guarding Assange hit over seven million British pounds (US$11.8 million) early on Wednesday, according to govwaste.co.uk counter.

Officers have been staking out the embassy around the clock since June 2012, with the cost to the London taxpayers surpassing $15,000 per day.

At any time of the day or night, there are three officers stationed outside the embassy, ready to arrest Assange if he tries to leave.

The bill is likely to keep climbing; Ecuadorian authorities have said Assange is welcome to stay in the embassy for as long as required.

US resupplying Israel with ammunition even after condemning shelling of Gaza school

RAEL’S COMMENT; and the money goes to the weapons industry belonging mostly to American Jews, who make huge profits, and use part of it to lobby US politicians to make sure that they continue to provide financial aid to Israel, so they can buy more weapons and continue killing innocent civilians.The weapon industry vampires are making profits with blood of Palestinian children in a continuous vicious circle: more bombing, more money, more money more lobbying, more lobbying more bombing…

 

No sooner than the White House condemned the shelling of a United Nations-operated school in Gaza on Wednesday did news break that the Pentagon will supply the Israeli military with new ammunition to further their campaign on the war-ravaged city.

That afternoon, CNN reported that the United States military will be honoring a request from Israel for assistance in the midst of their weeks-long campaign against militants from Hamas residing in Gaza City.

According to the network, Pentagon officials have confirmed that the US will honor a request from Israel for several types of ammunition, including 120mm mortar rounds and 40mm ammunition for grenade launchers. The exchange will not be an emergency sale, the unnamed officials said, and is coming from a stockpile of weapons maintained by the US in Israel worth more than $1 billion.

Only moments beforehand, however, the White House officially spoke out against an attack attributed to the IDF from earlier that day on an UN Relief and Works Agency school in Gaza’s Jabaliya refugee camp. Officials in Gaza say the shelling killed at least 15 and wounded 90 others, and is but the latest strike waged by the IDF in a war against Hamas that continues to claim the lives of Palestinian civilians caught in the crossfire.

Rael: Objector Natan Blanc awarded Honorary Guide title

Conscientious objector Natan Blanc has been awarded the title of Honorary Guide for Humanity by Rael, the Spiritual leader of the Raelian Movement, for his repeated refusal to serve the Israel defense forces.

The young objector has spent five and a half months behind bars for refusing to join the Israeli army because of the occupation before finally being released.

“His refusal to serve  the Israeli army of occupation and genocide is commendable” said Rael ” he is an example for the young Israeli generation who needs to be told that violence will never be a solution to any conflict”

Blanc resonates many years of Rael’s encouraging when he said that Israeli citizens as human beings have a moral duty to refuse to participate in this cynical game.” In 2007, Rael was calling for an “Israeli Gandhi” – an Israeli citizen who would lead Israel with nonviolence.  Rael also called for Israeli citizens to adopt the Palestinian orphans of war and raise them as Muslim, pointing out how this would immediately facilitate fraternity between the two peoples. The government did not allow this however.

‘If I lived in Gaza, I would fire a rocket’ UK politician roasted for anti-Israel tweet

RAEL’S COMMENT: all western medias and politicians saying constantly that Israel has the right to defend itself…but the Palestinians do not have this right! Is there any Palestinians forces occupying Israel territory? Isn’t occupation an act of war? Double standard at its worst!

 

A British politician has been reported to the police under the terrorism act, after making ‘vile’ comments on Twitter about Israel’s offensive in Gaza.

David Ward, a Liberal Democrat MP, tweeted on Tuesday that he would fire rockets into Israel if he was a Palestinian.

“The big question is – if I lived in #Gaza would I fire a rocket? – probably yes,” he tweeted.

In a follow-up message, he wrote “”Ich bin ein #palestinian – the West must make up its mind – which side is it on?”

Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi has written to Metropolitan Police, calling for an investigation into Mr Ward’s actions “as a matter of urgency.”

The remarks were immediately condemned by other MPs, including the Conservative party chairman Grant Shapps, who referred to it as an “incitement to violence” and “completely irresponsible.”
