Fans appeared to have a great time in Hockenheim Sunday afternoon, when Formula One drivers, showed the motorsports world why they are the pinnacle of racing. In a 67-lap, party on the grid, it was non-stop action. There was a crash, contact, and over-taking of friends, and fellow teammates. But at the end of the day, there was the reward of a podium for three of the best drivers currently in Formula One. Mercedes AMG drivers Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton lit the fuse of excitement in Australia, at the start of the season. And fans have lost sleep, waiting for the next race.
There cannot be enough said about Williams-Martini driver, Valtteri Bottas, coming in second and keeping Williams on the map.
In other track action: During the start of the race on turn one, Felipe Massa crashed after connecting with McLaren rookie, Magnussen. Sauber driver Adrian Sutil spun his car around and got stranded in the middle of the track. Fans and commentators were puzzled as to why the safety car was not deployed. The decision by track marshal’s to let it sit on the track for a lap, then send men out on foot to push it out of the way, was heavily criticized. Stranger than that, was the sudden burst of flames from the car of Daniil Kyvat.
Sahara Force India’s driver Nico Hulkenberg, had an impressive seventh place finish in front of his home crowd. While fellow German and 4-times world champion Sebastian Vettel, was one step away from a podium coming in fourth. Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso finished fifth.
Stay tuned to Xiro Xone News and F1 Sports. Next race, Hungary
I have just returned from a tour of the major cities of Poland, Hungary, Austria and The Czech Republic which included Warsaw, Budapest, Vienna and Prague. My visit to the Polish city of Cracow included a tour of the infamous concentration camps of Aushwitz and Birkenau. In each of these great cities I ate large quantities of good food, drank copious glasses of good wine while visitng magnificent castles and memorials to the tens of millions slaughtered by the Nazi's the Communists and citizens of these countries whose children go to school, get married, have babies of their own and eat and laugh in the same way as the millions of visitors who come to their homelands. The trip therefore had a surreal quality that now has me asking myself how I, and my fellow travelers could have had such a good time in places that are vast graveyards and killing fields. How do I tell a story of my adventures that can shed some light on how these horrors could have happened without uttering the nearly universal words "It's Unbelievable" and "How could this have happened" while then enjoying a fun filled evening of good food and fellowship. How can we explain Mozart, Beethoven Tchaikovsky and Dvorak along side of Hitler and Stalin. In my story this evening I will offer some suggestions of explanation that will certainly be inadequate and which will certainly not have a happy ending. I will employ some of the themes used in past broadcasts including self and group idealization, dehumanization and demonization, and victimization.
Rebroadcast of the long running radio program, "The Ave Maria Hour", a presentation of the Franciscan Friars of the Atonement. www.AtonementFriars.org
Father Leo Henrichs - Franciscan priest who was born on the Feast of the Assumption, 1867, in Oestrich, now a part of Erkelenz, Northrhine-Westphalia, Germany and given the name of Joseph. When he joined the Franciscans, whose friary had left the persecution of the Church under Otto von Bismarck, for Paterson, New Jersey, he took the name of Brother Leo before being ordained a priest on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, 1890. While assigned to St. Elisabeth of Hungary Church in Denver, Colorado, Father Heinrichs was fatally shot while distributing communion. The shooter, a Sicilian Anarchist later described his motivations as hatred of Catholicism.

From Anita Funtek
I describe myself as an economist with a passion for real estate. I studied Economy in high school and in University on my way to getting an MBA.
I worked at GE Capital from ’96 – 2000. GE owns a bank in Budapest, Hungary. In that job I performed in the areas of finance, operation, communication, and quality assurance. GE was an amazing work and professional experience.
In addition to working at the bank, the University I graduated from also asked me to teach Business Management, so I did that as well.
In 2002 I left the corporate world and founded my own real estate investment company. Investing and making real estate projects become a reality has always attracted me. I love the challenge of finding the balance between self-expression, function, aesthetics and profit.
From 2007-2011 I was asked to served as Chair-Woman for the National Research and Development Foundation, which focused on a wide range of companies research and development projects. The foundations primary mandate was to assess and execute innovation projects for top companies like Samsung, Ecolab, UPC, Heineken and a few more…
In late 2011 we moved as a family to the US, Miami. We quickly set up our life and business infrastructure, became a real estate broker and started researching the South Florida Market as a focal point of my Real Estate Strategy …the rest as they say, is very recent “history”!
We spend most of our episodes focused on music from the Baltimore Maryland area...after all, we hail from the mid-Atlantic region. Occasionally we take a trip into the whispy world of the paranormal.
This week was keep to our core of music, but step outside of the mid-Atlantic region to see what's going on musically in the world. Bev and Lee pack the steamtrunks for an excursion into the world radio marketplace. This provides a really good perspective on music in general, plus we will be featuring some real world-class talent. Genres and styles are fairly diverse, as we hear music from:
Chloe Charlemagne - UK
Alive Way - Lithuania
End of Mind - Seattle WA
Sara Kerr - UK
Frank Carducci - France
Watermelon Sugar - Brooklyn NY
Barbara Kiss - Hungary
Wayne William - Malta
Error Logic - UK
Painted on Water - Chicago
Nations Afire - LA
Natural Born Tellers - Canada
This is not a pre-recorded show, it's as live as we can be, so your call-ins are welcome. We'd like to get your perspective on the world's stage.

Henry himself is perhaps best recognized around the world as the sweet toned trombonist featured in the Rebirth Brass Band, Galactic, and trumpeter Kermit Ruffins’ band, The Barbecue Swingers. He has also recorded and played with the Dirty Dozen, Treme and New Birth Brass Bands. He has imparted his fiery melodies on stages everywhere from New Orleans neighborhood barrooms to far away festivals before hundreds of thousands in Canada, Japan Australia, Brazil, Hungary, Spain and Thailand and command performances for the ambassadors of Senegal, Morocco, Egypt and Kuwait. Henry has been leading his own band for over 20 years. Like so many other eager young musicians in the Crescent City, he hung around older musicians to build his skills and develop his style. In 1985, the legendary musician, Anthony “Tuba Fats” Lacen, encouraged the 10-year-old prodigy, suggesting he put a band together. The Lil’ Rascals Brass Band has been together now for 26 years, still challenging second liners and rival bands with its hot beats. The ensemble has released two fine, very diverse albums. Since 2008, Henry has been touring with Galactic and has recorded 3 albums with them.In 2011, Henry started a new venture, establishing the Treme Funktet. It’s a funky sextet that’s comfortable moving from jazz to R&B and hip-hop, with an occasional visit to the second-line brass band style. In 2012 Henry won a Grammy Winner with the Rebirth Brass Band for the album Rebirth of New Orleans in the Best Regional Roots Category. Now working on his solo album, Corey Henry plans to pay tribute to all the veteran New Orleans musicians from whom he learned his craft, absorbing all they had to offer.

There is an ongoing debate surrounding the free weekly podcast Dean Haglund and Phil Leirness have been co-hosting for almost seven years: Is their show a comedy podcast?
After all, what should one make of a show that features such free-wheeling, spirited conversation about a variety of topics ranging from live choir events to stop-motion animation, from the artistry of Ralph Fiennes to the heroics of Captain America, from excellent “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” podcast Level 7 Access to the latest roster changes in late night television, from gun violence and mental health to what went wrong with the Tom Cruise vehicle Oblivion?
Of course, we know what it is.
It’s YOUR Chillpak Hollywood Hour!
