  2. Mr Bernham This is a thread which is to remember and to commemorate this particular atrocity in history. Any comments, jibes, or rudeness towards other members, whether intended as a joke or not are not welcome here.
  3. This is a horrendous video, but conveys the atrocities at time of liberation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkq1Pa2Aq6I&spfreload=10
  4. Today is Holocaust Memorial Day and this year is 70 Years since the liberation of the Auschwitz. Does anyone have any personal stories from family or friends that they would like to share as a way to remember the innocent millions of Jews, Gypsies, Homosexuals, Disabled, Ethnic peoples who lost their lives. The atrocities of Nazi Germany, MUST never ever again be allowed to happen.
  5. The Semi Final draw: In other news: Sofia, Bulgaria will host the 13th Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015 after 2014 winner Italy declined.
  6. Tomorrow the draw for the 2 semi finals will take place in Vienna http://www.eurovision.tv/page/news?id=tomorrow_the_semi-final_allocation_draw
  7. 18 January 2015: Announcement of the competition. Time begins for announcing intention to bid. 28 February 2015: Applicant Cities to formally submit their Preliminary Application Files. Discussion within IOC begins. I think that 4 weeks to produce and submit a 5 page brochure is a bit lengthy, perhaps this should be reduced to 2 weeks.
  8. I am interested, although what bothers me is that although the concept of this comp sounds good, it is a large time frame from now until July and I am worried that over this time interest may decrease. Also after the Pan Am comp i entered fizzled into nothing and stopped halfway through, i am wary of putting in more work on this.
  9. Glasgow's SSE Hydro is 'world's second busiest venue' http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-30796463

  11. There will be 3 female hosts in Vienna and Conchita Wurst will be the Green room host. http://oikotimes.com/2014/12/19/eurovision-2015-meet-the-hosts-for-the-show/
  12. The full opening ceremony is now available. http://youtu.be/ZlYwNqixTig Whatever you think about it - it means so much to Glasgow and is one of the most relevant and true ceremonies.
  13. The meaning behind my Anchorage logo: A for Anchorage, A for Alaska, A, for America. The dots represent snow and the Winter Games and the colours of red and blue against a white backdrop represent the colours of the USA flag.
  14. ok, so here is my official entry for this competition. It is a simple design, depicting an athlete in motion. The colour red symbolises the host nation of Japan and the figure is also shaped as a T for Tokyo, host city. It is in a brushstroke style to symbolise Japanese art. It also pays homage to older styles of Olympic logos. A simple, yet effective logo for Tokyo's games.
  15. Speaking of Mascots. The U-20 FIFA World Cup mascot was launched this weekend = Wooliam
  16. The Czech Republic is returning to the contest in 2015.
  17. Scotland has is first ever Female First Minister, Nicola, Queen of Scots :)
