March 6, 2012 9 comments

Prince Harry is currently touring the Caribbean ( it’s like we have gone back to the days of the “Old Empire”) to celebrate the Queen’s diamond jubliee.

So far Harry has danced with the ‘natives’ in Belize, passed through the Bahamas and is now in Jamaica running alongside Usain Bolt and hoping to persuade Prime Minister Portia Simpson to not replace the Queen as head of state.

Film Director and CEO/ Founder of Its Upshot Sebastian Thiel

Illegal Activity, an original short film directed by Sebastian Thiel of Its Upshot and produced by Kingdom Entertainment, is a timely piece of work demonstrative of the culture we live in today.  Illegal Activity creatively posing the age old phrase “you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone,” using drug culture as a foil, he explores the risks people would take in order to nurture their brain.

The streets of London are under heavy surveillance; its occupants are like zombies and the opportunistic dealers have the upper hand. The fiends stop at nothing to get their fix, whether they are robbing siblings or selling TVs, it is made evident they are highly motivated at getting what they cannot have.

The short film, which has its preview screening at Warner Brothers features cameos from artists and actors such as Sway (MOBO award winner), Richie Campbell (Anuvahood, The Bill) Giacomo Mancini (Top Boy) and Shanika Warren (Adulthood, 4321) and upcoming actors including Frieda Thiel (Law & Order, Casualty) and Jerome Holder (Shank) who all dedicated time from their busy schedules to take part in the project due to the concept of the film.

NONSENSE OF THE DAY: BRITISH ATHLETES ADVISED NOT TO SHAKE HANDS WITH OTHER NATIONS DURING THE OLYMPICS

It may be as stereotypically British as fish and chips or warm beer but Team GB‘s athletes are being advised not to shake hands with rivals or dignitaries at the London Games for fear of wrecking their medal chances.

Dr Ian McCurdie, the British Olympic Association chief medical officer, said that illness was one of the major threats to performance in the “pretty hostile environment” of the Olympic Village.

Asked whether that meant athletes should avoid shaking hands, Dr McCurdie said: “I think, within reason, yes.” He added: “I think that is not such a bad thing to advise. The difficulty is when you have got some reception and you have got a line of about 20 people you have never met before who you have got to shake hands with.”

The BOA advises the use of regular hand washing and anti-bacterial hand foam as part of its official advice to the 550 athletes it will take to the Games as part of Britain’s biggest ever team. Continue Reading….

Former British swimming Olympic champion Duncan Goodhew was on Daybreak this morning backing this nonsense.  In all the years of major sporting events that have taken place around the world this has never been an issue so why is it suddenly an issue now???

If team GB (Great Britain) performs badly during the games will they then blame their poor performances on feeling ill after shaking heads with a competitor from a different nation?

I seriously doubt there will be this devastating outbreak of a deadly disease that will cut down an entire team after shaking hands.

What are they really trying to say here?

In my opinion this also just sends out the misguided message that by shaking hands with individuals from foreign lands you stand the chance of catching disease.

And the image above (Via The Guardian) is just insulting.
