www.hooplaha.com, www.happynews.com and positivenews.org.uk. I really recommend them for giving your day a feel-good boost :)
Also, this article explains how constructive solution-focussed news rather than negative fear mongering may be the news style of the future :) http://positivenews.org.uk/2013/culture/media/11256/constructive-journalism-aims-eliminate-unnecessary-negativity-press/
is www.mepeace.org, I’ve just joined it and it seems really good. Its a community of people dedicated to bringing about peace :)
with a girl called Elena from Ukraine :) It went pretty well, now I can say I’ve spoken to people from 3 different continents on Skype: South America (Juan Carlos, Colombia), North Africa (Kamel, Algeria) and Eastern Europe (Elena, Ukraine.) (Ok so I know North Africa and Eastern Europe aren’t continents, but you get the gist of what I’m trying to say…)
with my friend Kamel from Algeria (the one who said that I was rare and that most Europeans he knows hate Arabs). It went surprisingly well, I wasn’t as shy as I thought I’d be. I have to say, after years of avoiding it, I LOVE SKYPE!
...with my friend Juan Carlos from Bogota, Colombia. It went much better than I expected, I really enjoyed talking to him and the conversation flowed fairly well. I really recommend Skype, if you can get over the initial nerves of letting your voice be heard by a stranger. I hope to use it again soon :)
Please cheer if you share this vision :)
one of the people I speak to on busuu.com is Algerian, and he said that I am rare, that most europeans hate arabs and that some people have even stopped chatting with him after learning what country he is from.
I really enjoy talking to him, and at the same time I’m glad to be shattering the stereotype of european people disliking arabs :)
