  • Global Peace Day September 21 2015 Holly Stephey Red Velvet Media Blogtalk Radio

    in Pop Culture

    The International Day of Peace Vigil is a global undertaking that requires the efforts of many people of all faiths and beliefs to be successful. Red Velvet Media encourages you to support the United Nations' call for a full day of global ceasefire on 21 September by observing the day in spiritual contemplation for peace, global ceasefire and nonviolence with other members of your community and/or the broader interfaith community.

    Each year the International Day of Peace is observed around the world on 21 September. The General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace, both within and among all nations and peoples.

    The theme of this year’s commemoration is “Partnerships for Peace – Dignity for All” which aims to highlight the importance of all segments of society to work together to strive for peace. The work of the United Nations would not be possible without the initial partnerships that were active in its creation and the thousands of partnerships each year between governments, civil society, the private sector, faith-based groups and other non-governmental organizations that are needed to support the Organization in achieving its future goals.

    The International Day of Peace was established in 1981 by the United Nations General Assembly to coincide with its opening session, which was held annually on the third Tuesday of September. The first Peace Day was observed in September 1982.

    The United Nations invites all nations and people to honour a cessation of hostilities during the Day, and to otherwise commemorate the Day through education and public awareness on issues related to peace.In the words of John Lennon, Give Peace a chance.

  • Going Viral and Creating Buzz On Social Media

    in Comedy

    You know social media has changed the way the world works. We get our news and information in 140 character bursts from Twitter or on the "trending topics" section on Facebook. At one time this seemed like a very positive thing, but now? Maybe not so much. Everyone is so focused on creating buzz and going viral and getting clicks that the substance is all gone! Well, not on IWS Radio dammit!

    Matt-Man and Jayman are going to discuss the ways that social media has changed the world. Both the good and the bad. It's brought us all closer together and given people all over the world the chance to connect. It has also torn us apart as discussion usually devolve into name calling arguments with everyone just trying to shout the other side down. This is just so sad. How did this happen? Matt and Jay have a few theories on this and will break it all down this week.

    How hard is to "go viral" and why is everyone so desperate to do so? Why won't Miley Cyrus re-tweet Jayman? Which social media site is the best? How dead are blogs? Are podcasts dead? Is all about Periscope and Vine and Instagram now? It all changes so fast and it takes social media gurus like Matt and Jay to keep it all straight.

    As always Canadian Bureau Chief Jamie Mapleleaf and some members of the IWS Players will be along to entertain and inform you. And as always we'll be taking YOUR CALLS @ 661.244.9852 so be sure to join us for all the fun and games!
