According to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, AIDS-related deaths have dropped by 45 per cent, malaria death rates are down by 60 per cent and tuberculosis mortality has diminished by 47 per cent.

Call it a mix of ego, generosity, self-promotion and insecurity. But Bono is sorry for giving away U2's latest album for free on iTunes accounts. There were grumbles last month when the Irish rock ban...
This day in Dublin, Mandela shakes my hand. It's a most peculiar moment. I look into his eyes, he looks into mine, and somehow I know I'm in the presence of sheer, bloody greatness. Not because of what he's done or had done to him, but simply because of who he is.
For most South Africans, that long walk to freedom Mandela wrote about is on a much longer, stonier and more dangerous road than they ever expected. And it's taking far more time than their well wishers around the world ever predicted. Considering what's happening to his dream of a new, democratic and rainbow nation, maybe it's best that Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela has gone.
UPDATE: Nelson Mandela died at home in Johannesburg at age 95 on Thursday Dec. 5, 2013. The makers of "Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom," a biographical film starring Idris Elba, must have assumed it wou...

Though I strongly agree with these words, they came from someone just a bit more glamorous than me -- Bono. The West's relationship with the poor is based on condescension and charity. When it comes to helping the poor get out of the poverty trap, one should not be trapped in preconceived ideas.

It's really hard to tell the difference between me and Bono. OK, so there might be some differences, but you can clearly see the similarity -- the orange glasses. Bono wears them because of a sensitivity to light. You should wear them too, but for an entirely different reason.
Can Bono save the world? He's certainly trying to, but he may not be as effective as he thinks, according to the documentary "Give Us the Money" that premiered on TV Ontario (TVO) this week as part of...
The hallmark of Bono's celebrity activism has been a concern with gaining access to key political decision-makers. However, over the last year the focus of attention has turned away from a fixation with politicians at the apex of power in the traditional global establishment.

The celebrities' call to action on the famine in Somalia is welcome, but the bottom line is that these countries need sustained economic growth. Such strategies are not without risks, however. Businesses must not be permitted to abuse human rights. Foreign investment must not undermine sovereignty.
