You can find this street artist at the Djemaa el Fna square in the old city of Marrakech, Medina. The only trick he has is the miracle hats, which seem to wonder off by themselves. Of course the real artists are the guinea pig and the hedgehog who walk around under the hats. All the other animals are just there for the entourage. Another must see if you visit Marrakech!

Feel free to use this image as you wish! I only ask you to credit me by linking back to my flickr account or my website www.archetypefotografie.nl/ Thanks!

“The training is good, it’s great. It helps us to learn and to earn a living”

Nahed* is from Homs in Syria.

"I was living happily there before the conflict started", she says.

"But after it began, the situation became mixed-up. We decided to come to Lebanon, because I was afraid for my children. They were traumatised by what they had seen and heard."

"The cooperative and IRC offered us this work making fishing nets here. The training is good, it’s great. It helps us to learn and to earn a living."

"I hope to be able to sell the nets to get some income, to be able to support my family."

Learning how to knit fishing nets might not seem the most urgent priority for refugees who fled Syria’s civil war, yet the International Rescue Committee believes that providing the essential tools to help people to find work is a vital way to help them support themselves.

The women also learn how to finish nets by sewing weights and floats to them. The nets are then ready for sale to local fishermen. There’s certainly an art to the craft; it takes months of practice to become expert. Once fully trained it is possible for one woman to knit a 100-meter or 300 foot long fishing net in just three hours.

The UK has committed over £800 million to help those affected by the conflict in Syria – our largest ever response to a humanitarian crisis.

In addition to livelihoods projects like this one, UK funding is providing support including food, medical care and relief items for over a million people – people who have been affected by the fighting but are still inside Syria and those who have fled the country and become refugees in neighbouring Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey and Iraq.

Satellite Radio: XM Radio or Sirius

Satellite radio is the hottest trend in radio entertainment for your car, home, and office. The freedom from commercials and static is an exhilarating experience. No longer do you have listen to obnoxious jingles and hot air. No longer are you condemned to choose between dead air and Country & Western when traveling in rural areas.


Commercial-Free, Digital-Quality Sound


All of these problems are solved with satellite radio. And there is nothing else in the radio world that can compete with its digital quality sound. Satellite can provide uninterrupted listening pleasure anywhere in the world.


The only problem is deciding upon which satellite radio provider to choose. The top 2 contenders are Sirius and XM Radio. If you want satellite radio, you are immediately faced with the issue of how to choose between them.


XM Radio, First In The Sky


XM Radio established its presence first, and has a market share of 2 million listeners. XM has had the time to establish an excellent system of 68 commercial-free music channels with an incredible array of music. It also adds 33 channels of news, sports, talk shows, and entertainment to its programming mix. To top it off, XM has revolutionized the satellite radio world by providing 21 channels of up-to-date weather and traffic for most of the major metropolitan areas in the United States.


Sirius, Radio Innovator On Satellite TV


Sirius may be the comparative upstart, but it offers some advantages of its own. New contacts with DISH Network satellite television have given Sirius access to more than 10 million subscribers. It provides more than 120 channels if you add up all of the music, sports, information and entertainment.


For sports, Sirius is hard to beat. It broadcasts live games for professional football and hockey leagues, as well as many other sporting events. Sirius will also be the home of Howard Stern in 2006.


New Technology, New Listening Experience


So, whether you choose XM Radio for experience and staying power, or cast your vote for the innovations of Sirius, there’s no reason to wait. Satellite radio is to broadcast radio as the VCR was to television. You can have it all — without commercials! So what are you waiting for — pick one.

Rhodes holidays 2010like many other holiday packages will offer great fun and entertainment stuff during your stay on the island. With each passing day some new development takes place in tourism industry of Rhodes Island to make sure your Rhodes holidaysare delightful.

The Governor’s Palace and its Location

Being one of the most significant infrastructures established during Italian domination of the island, the governor’s palace is an amalgamation of various architectural styles. Similarly, the arrangement of this palace stoutly bears a resemblance to the Palace of the Duces in Venice. One of the best Rhodes holidays ideasis to visit this palace of the medieval times.

The Governor’s palace is an Italian-built architect of 1927 designed by an architect of the same origin, named Florestano di Fausto. It was the Italians who used this building as their Governor’s Palace. Today, this place comes under the jurisdiction of Dodecanese region.

Ancient Staircase Leading towards the Governor’s Palace

Rhodes holidays 2010 provide its visitors with the opportunity to visit a gigantic staircase of the ancient times that leads towards the Governor’s Palace. It comprises of two buildings in its present form, while originally it had three buildings. After the passage of time, one building was unluckily demolished.

Later on, this staircase of its unique nature was once restored by the Danish Archaeological Mission in order to make it a museum. Afterwards, the Italians during their domination also restored this place.

There is a church of Saint John on the veranda of the huge ancient covered walkway, which can be seen high on the top of ‘cisterns hewn’ into the rock as well as the storage magazines of the Acropolis of c. 1st BC.

It is a cross-shaped decorated type of church that attracts many visitors during their summer Rhodes holidays. The ancient history indicates that this interesting church was constructed either at the end of c. 11th century or else in the c. 13th-14th centuries.

The process of its development was carried out apparently on the relics of a previously existing church. It is justified from the architectural fragments found on the Acropolis that date back to the c. 6th century AD. It is therefore a unique place to have fun and entertainment of all sorts during your stay in the brimming island of Rhodes.

No matter, whatever the condition of the governor’s palace is, but it is guaranteed that this unique building with its hidden history of centuries will leave lasting impacts on your life.

There are not only ancient places in Rhodes, but you can also avail various other resorts for partying and fun making on the island.

JERUSALEM (April 15, 2013) – Cardinal Seán and a group of 29 priests of the Archdiocese of Boston have traveled on an Easter pilgrimage to the Holy Land this week, and they’re bringing the readers of TheGoodCatholicLife.com blog along with them.

On the last day of their pilgrimage, the pilgrims began by walking the Via Dolorosa, the Way of the Cross, the path through the streets of Jerusalem that Jesus walked with the Cross to the Crucifixion. After celebrating Mass, they thanked those who had taken care of them on their pilgrimage and prepared for their flights home. As they waited, news of the bombings at the Boston Marathon back home reached the pilgrims and they united themselves in prayer with those who were hurt, their families, and the emergency workers who rushed to care for them.

All this week, our colleague George Martell is traveling with the pilgrimage, embedded with the Cardinal and his priests so we can bring you photos, blogs, videos, and audio reports from the Holy Land from the pilgrims at such places as the Basilica of the Annunciation, Mount Carmel, the Sea of Galilee, the Church of the Transfiguration, Qumran, the Mount of Olives, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Upper Room, and more. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Jesus with Cardinal Seán and the Archdiocese’s priests as an Easter retreat experience.

Please stay tuned to www.thegoodcatholiclife.com, as well as www.BostonCatholicPhotos.com and www.YouTube.com/BostonCatholic and our Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/bostoncatholic and Twitter account: www.twitter.com/bostoncatholic for the latest updates from the Holy Land.
