    Iranian making history in snooker... for being Iranian

    I realise it's been a while since I've last posted on here and apologies if this topic had been raised, but I've been following snooker (as you do) and noticed there's an Iranian competing at professional level. He is the first person from Iran to compete professionally. So here introducing...

    Desert Dancer (2013 film)

    Is anyone aware of a new film coming out called Desert Dancer? It's apparently a true story about Afshin Ghaffarian, a dancer during the 2009 elections. Interesting concept, just wondered if any of you were aware of the film, or perhaps have more knowledge about Mr Ghaffarian...

I have "launched" it today and the leagues I will predict concern the top four English divisions (with THREE Welsh teams between them (there...

    Kate Middleton gives birth to a baby boy

    Kate Middleton (Duchess of Cambridge) has given birth to the third heir to the throne. It is a boy. The name is unknown as yet but the British media has gone royal baby-bonkers about it all. There is no escaping it in the UK. Is the news big in Iran, or are you a bit like the Welsh and don't...

    Stereotype reaches a whole new level - video, exampling pure snobbery in Britain

    One of my guilty pleasures is snobbery. I love it when people are completely out of touch as you can have great debates such as this one. This was from ITV's This Morning programme and they're discussing children's names. You have to see it and be in awe!

    Julia Gillard resigns as Australia's Prime Minister

    Australian politics is rarely discussed in the media - unless you're living in Australia, of course. However, yesterday, something unbelievable happened. Three months before the general elections, Prime Minister Julia Gillard lost the Labor leadership battle against her nemesis Kevin Rudd. He...

    Are you into The Voice phenomenon?

    I'm a big fan of The Voice UK - the second series has only just finished and the two winners so far I have agreed with the general public (for a change!) - anyway, as much as I think it's a great concept and show, the aftermath is somewhat ghastly. Take a look at my view on the past two series...

    A British Alex Jones is a popular, attractive TV Presenter. An American Alex Jones however...

    This is the UK's Alex Jones... stunning, isn't she? Alex Jones is pretty popular in the UK and the TV show she presents "The One Show" is seen consistently by millions across the British Isles. She lacks controversy - when Bruce Willis went to the show and acted like an idiot, she was...

    Chelsea in potential Arsenal showdown

    Another Chelsea-related post but here we go... This Sunday as we all know is the last day of the Premier League season, or is it? As Chelsea and Arsenal have similar goal differences and goals, if they share points by Sunday evening, they may have to play a play-off, which will determine who...

    Googoosh Music Academy

    I've only just discovered this phenomenon. The Guardian and The Daily Mail have covered a story in the last week about the winner and the fact that the Iranian government doesn't like her, or the show, or the channel - but three million people in Iran watched the final which seems pretty cool...

    Archbishop of Wales voices concern of treatment of Iranian exiles in Iraq

    I found this rather intriguing. It is quite rare to hear a religious leader of any sort share their concern about other nation's pain or happiness. The Archbishop of Wales has recognised the poor treatment of Iranian exiles by some people in Iraq at Camp Liberty. Is the situation there as bad as...

    Pope resigns from the Vatican

    Quite a big story here - the current state of the Cathocisism faith is in much debate so we wonder what will be in the next chapter of the religion. Pope Benedict is the first Pope to resign in 600 years so a historical day for the faith.

    Meat scandal in the UK

    Not too sure if it's been a scandal elsewhere but UK, people have been up in arms about it. The story is escalating all the time - horse meat found in burgers, and most recently, pork found in halal meat. Here is the latest development...

    Josh Navidi: Wales rugby player

    The rugby union's Six Nations is just around the corner and Wales has picked a player whom I suspect is Iranian - correct me if I'm wrong. Navidi sounds like a Persian name so... Here are a few links about him:

    What should we do about guns?

    A couple of weeks ago, a small town in Connecticut was shocked and saddened to see 20 children murdered in their school Sandy Hook. A man, Adam Lanza went loose in this school and murdered children and teachers, and then himself. It shocked the world and Barack Obama gave an emotional tribute to...

    My blog facelift

    For those interested (probably not many) but my blog has been given a little facelift. Take a peep (although, it's usually me just rambling about how crap the UK government is. First world problems, aye?!)
