looking back at a few stories that we discussed
We looked at some of our previous stories and saw what had happened in some of the cases:
- The Barilla Group chairman’s homophobic comments have now led to an apology and them setting up a leadership initiative in diversity and inclusion I hope this will lead to the company’s chairman being less shoot-from-the-hip.
- Doctor Who has regenerated into a new regeneration so we now have the Twelfth Doctor played by Peter Capaldi a Scottish actor, famous for his portrayal of Martin Tucker in The Thick of It a satire on the working of the modern British government. Here is the first scene of him in Doctor Who:
- There is an interview with Cornelius Gurlitt’s, the 80 year old man who had many millions of Euros worth of art treasures in his flat in the international section of Der Spiegel
- In the Swiss Referedum on the limiting of pay the result was decisively to reject the idea. Here is a report from thejournal.ie an Irish on-line news website.
The private life of a Masterpiece
We watched this video:
Especially where a book, Along The Road: Notes and essays of a tourist written in 1925 by Aldous Huxley which described the Ressurrection as standing there before us in entire and actual splendour, the greatest picture in the world . This had been read by Tony Clarke of the Royal Horse Artillery and led to him stopping the shelling of the town by the British and saving the picture and the town. This led to a street being named after him in Sansepolcro.
