Angelina Jolie Visits Rescue Camp for Women

Angelina Jolie Visits Rescue Camp for Women

Angelina Jolie pays a visit to a rescue camp for women on Monday (March 25) in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The 37-year-old actress and UNHCR goodwill ambassador, who was joined at the site by the British Minister for Foreign Affairs William Hague, went to raise awareness for war zone rape in the area.

Sexual violence is used frequently as a weapon by rebel groups in the area.

The next day, Angelina and William payed their respects at the Gisozi genocide memorial during a wreath laying ceremony.

    It’s not a wedding ring. I’m fairly sure (having seen alternate photos on other news outlets) that it is a yellow gold band with a small diamond stone set in it and that she has tried to keep the stone facing inwards so that it looks just like a simple gold band. Also, if it was a simple wedding band, there would have been no need to remove it for her visit to the International Rescue Committee camp. She didn’t remove her gold necklaces for this visit, so no need to remove a wedding ring.

    I am sure that she would have loved to have worn a proper pretend wedding ring in order to focus attention on her nuptials around the predicted time of Jennifer Anistons’ wedding. However, I don’t think she dared push Brad that far.

    She hasn’t worn the ‘promise for the future ring’ on other UN trips, so there was no need to wear a smaller substitute ring for this trip. This is a deliberate ploy to generate press attention as to whether she is now married. Jolie usually carries her bags on her right shoulder or right arm. When she wanted to show off her ‘promise for the future ring’ to photographers in LA shortly after the museum reveal, she made sure to carry her bag on her left arm and hold her left hand up so the photogs could all get good shots. At the airport for this trip, she is carrying her bag on her left shoulder and makes sure to put up her left hand to hold onto the strap when the photographers are snapping, so they definitely get a shot of the ‘is it or isn’t it’ ring and the speculation can begin.

Does Angelina evere get to the cause of such suffering ? in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya ? NO . S he is there for photo ops and to create the image that western powers are there to help.

    “I’m scared of GROUND CONTROL AND FALP.”

    oh Rose,
    you’re so cute…please don’t be scared. GC and I are really quite harmless and our analytical/thinking styles, hence our ops and POV’s are just from an objective hard data bent. I obviously cannot speak directly for GC but I can surmise that it’s part of her and my training and mind-set…day to day decision making depends on objectivity and info collection. We do not have a choice LOL…it’s like driving a car…on autopilot and I probably can say on behalf of GC and myself…we mean no harm or offense…we’re both into educating, informing, passing on what we’ve learned etc. She can speak for herself when and if she wants to.
    I actually agree with you re: Samuels…what an unexpected nightmare for the Defense…he was not properly vetted. IMO they “trusted” him too much… possibly because his paper resume was full of “paid for” affiliations to appear “impressive” to the casual eye LOL. To be fair to them, they may or may not have been astute to or thought about what is referred to as “scope of practice” as defined for professions as a whole in State and National Codes versus “scope of competence” which is individually determined and subsequently defines capabilities within the profession which IMO is the heart of the criticism of Richard Samuels. Attacking him as an individual psychologist versus his profession as a psychologist is appropriate and fair. His “scope of competence” as an “expert witness” is sloppy. He appears to be in a daze re: his proficiency. In addition it appears Samuels did not even review his notes before he took the witness stand and/or ignored attorney prep up…skilled attorneys usually advise their witnesses/clients of potential questions by the opposition before taking the witness stand and often before depositions and/or having implied himself as an experienced trial witness, he should have queried about potential opposition questions if the attorneys did not voluntarily prep him…in a court of law where every word is recorded working on behalf of a client, a paid professional who is unprepared is a deal killer.

    Rose, you’re a sweetheart…carry on and continue to have fun. Ignore me…I’m just doing my thing.

    PS. “Cook” is “scared” of me too although he would never admit it…ROTFLOL.

    Angie's GOLD ring Says:

    “CONFLICT MINERALS are minerals mined in conditions of armed conflict and human rights abuses, notably in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, by the Congolese National Army, and various armed rebel groups, including the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) and the National Congress for the Defense of the People (CNDP), a proxy Rwandan militia group. The looting of the Congo’s natural resources is not limited to domestic actors; during the Congo Wars, Rwanda, Uganda and Burundi particularly profited from the Congo’s resources. These governments have continued to smuggle resources out of the Congo to this day. The profits from the sale of these minerals finance continued fighting in the Second Congo War, and control of lucrative mines becomes a focus of the fighting as well.[1] The most commonly mined minerals are cassiterite, wolframite, coltan, and GOLD, which are extracted from the Eastern Congo, and passed through a variety of intermediaries before being purchased by multinational electronics companies.”

    Hey, FALP.
    When the defense has the exact same resources and freedom to hire who they need and want as the prosecution then maybe we can even the playing field at trial. Until then it is always hit and miss with experts for the defense and even those defendants with their lives on the line will not be afforded the defense they are entitled to under the Constitution.
    It isn’t even always about the money either – a lot of experts won’t work for the defense because then the side with more work to parcel out – the prosecution – will cut them off from business.

    @Angie’s GOLD ring:
    Could you please tell us where Angie’s gold ring is from. Because I assume you must know.
    In the end these countries need a market for their resources.
    The answer to issues like blood diamonds and other minerals is not to stop the use of the materials or destroy their markets but to ensure you are buying conflict free diamonds and other resources.
    By so doing you show that if the diamonds and minerals are delivered to market conflict free then they will be a great source of income to a country. That is something these countries need and will continue to need in the future as they struggle to wrest self control of their resources. Putting an end to the desire for diamonds and other resources will do nothing to help these countries in the future except continue to impoverish them. Mindless kneejerk reactions are never the answer.
    Kudos to Angelina for publicly showing respect to those in the camp and using her time and energy to be a part of the solution. She is such a great role model. Her kids are very lucky.

    excellent point gc.
    “It isn’t even always about the money either – a lot of experts won’t work for the defense because then the side with more work to parcel out – the prosecution – will cut them off from business.”
    This I did not suspect…but why not when you think about it.
    I love “superior knowledge.” Thanks gc for that input. Credible experiential perspective is always welcome. I learned a disconcerting bit of info but that’s reality…”you don’t bite the hand that feeds you” or is it “you can’t have it both ways”…it always comes down to perspective.

    groundcontrol Says:

    As I posted on the Gisozi visit thread there are some items that are nothing more than political propaganda. Like the right wing Daily Mail shilling for the right wing UKIP by printing a party advert with the likes of the “Earl of Dartmouth” – poor baby is still smarting for losing his hereditary seat and writing screeds in newspapers when he thinks some paper dissed his mommy and grandma.
    I wouldn’t worry. William Hague is smartly doing his job. Problem is the UKIPers don’t give a shite about Africa and never will. What’s their motto – ignore Africa because it’s UK first, abolish inheritance taxes and keep those immigramts out of the UK.
    No one is listening to the right wing rants of an elitist, “anti-immigration” pol like Dartmouth who has enough of his own personal baggage to worry about.
    And, despite the caterwauling of selfish, right wingers who can only think of themselves first like the so very egalitarian “Mister” Dartmouth, Minister Hague is in Africa doing EXACTLY what a foreign minister should be doing. Thanks to Sunny, as always, for driving this home in the following . . .
    On 10 and 11 April 2013, the Foreign Secretary William Hague will host his counterparts from the G8 countries. They will meet for the G8 foreign ministers’ meeting at Lancaster House in London.
    On announcing the meeting, the Foreign Secretary said:
    “I look forward to the UK’s G8 Presidency making headway on the serious challenges facing our global community today. Today the Prime Minister explained that by supporting the development of open economies, open governments and open societies we can harness the power of the private sector for everyone’s benefit. Our G8 priorities of advancing trade, ensuring tax compliance and promoting greater transparency can only take place in an environment of political stability and peaceful international relations.
    “With my G8 foreign minister partners, I look forward to discussing and taking decisions on some of the most pressing foreign and security policy issues that we face. In particular I will be focusing on the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, a personal priority for me during the UK’s G8 Presidency and beyond, and ensuring that the G8’s Deauville Partnership provides the support needed by our partners in the Arab world.”
    I saw Japanese national TV was showing BBC’s clip of Angie and Hague’s visit to Rwanda.
    UK media, BBC’s reports are distributed for the network of global media.
    Especially Africa and Asia’s media use BBC as their resorce of covering global issues.
    So G8′s Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative will be effectively spread to these countries where sexual violence is used as the weapon or more advanced countries who purchase natural resorce from these countries.

    Hello Folks. Once again, La Jolie shows herself to be the great inspiration that she always is and a true queen. In addition to the ring sending these fools off the spool, it has also occurred to me that the fact the The Jolie is working with the BRITISH Foreign Secretary is another cause for the trolls’ pain. You see they could attempt to downplay her influence and importance by saying she only met with third world players, but this is GREAT BRITAIN. They can’t spin this away. And she will probably be going to the G8 summit to plead her cause. D@mn. THE G8. And these fools think that Brad would leave this powerful queen for that simple, substandard creature that was always beneath him.

    Britain pledges £1m for DR Congo rape victims
    William Hague, the foreign secretary, has pledged £1m to help support the documentation of sexual violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
    By Bonnie Malkin and agencies

    12:12AM GMT 27 Mar 2013
    During a visit to the country with Angelina Jolie to highlight the issue of rape as a “weapon of war”, Mr Hague spoke to women subjected to vicious sexual attacks in the war-torn east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
    The women spoke of their ordeal and told the pair how they were raped while fleeing violence in the country.
    They also met children as young as five in the Nzolo and Lac Vert village camps, who were sexually abused at the hands of the Congolese Army.
    Mr Hague said that he would ask other foreign ministers from the Group of Eight world powers at a meeting next month to make “practical commitments” aimed at tackling rape and sexual assault in conflict zones.
    Britain pledged more than £205,000 to Physicians for Human Rights, an independent organisation, which uses medicine and science to combat rights violations, works from the hospital known for its support for sexual violence survivors.
    The money will enable the provision of ultrasound machines, locked evidence cabinets and solar-powered medical headlamps that can be used to support investigations.
    Mr Hague also announced £850,000 over three years to support the Women’s Initiative for Gender, which works in armed conflict areas including DRC and pushes for gender justice through the International Criminal Court.
    Bad weather prevented Mr Hague and Ms Jolie, a UN special envoy, from visiting the Panzi Hospital in Bukavu, eastern Democratic Republic of Congo, the Foreign Office in London said.
    Without the work at the Panzi Hospital, “many women would not have survived the vicious attacks that they were subjected to,” Mr Hague said.
    “There is an enormous human cost associated with rape and sexual violence, and there is an urgent need for the international community to act to prevent these crimes and support victims.
    “At the meeting of G8 foreign ministers in London on April 11, I will be asking countries to make practical commitments so that we can erode and one day shatter the culture of impunity for those who use rape as a weapon of war.”
    In place of the planned visit to Panzi, Jolie and Mr Hague visited the HEAL Africa hospital in Goma which treats rape victims and also offers counselling and help with setting up micro-enterprise schemes.
    Mr Hague and Jolie are calling on the G8 to agree that rape and sexual violence constitute breaches of the Geneva Conventions governing warfare.
    They also want a new international protocol on the documentation and investigation of the issue.
    The campaign will also be taken to the UN Security Council in June and the UN General Assembly in September.

    Garrett Hedlund: the new Brad Pitt?
    Do you mind being called the new Brad Pitt ? No, not at all. I feel honoured. I worked with him when I was just 18 on my first movie Troy . I remember watching A River Runs Through It with my mother as a child and she pointed at him and said to me “that’s you!” So it was very surreal to play with him and he has continued to be a great example of how to deal with everything the industry throws at you. I have respect for how he handles life under pressure.

    EXCLUSIVE: Andrew Dominik Talks Killing Them Softly Blu-ray

    Although it didn’t take off at the box office like I had hoped it would, director Andrew Dominik’s brilliant Killing Them Softly was one of my Top 10 movies of 2012. Chocked full of brilliant performances from Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, Richard Jenkins, Ray Liotta, and Scoot McNairy, this adaptation of George V. Higgins centers on the fallout from a high stakes poker game robbery, set against the backdrop of the 2008 Presidential elections. I recently had the chance to speak with Andrew Dominik about his fascinating drama, which debuts on Blu-ray and DVD March 26. Here’s what he had to say.

    I’m not normally a huge fan of deleted scenes, even in movies I love, but I really enjoyed these deleted scenes. Are these the ones you were trying to fit in and you just didn’t have room for?

    Andrew Dominik: Well, there’s a lot of stuff that was cut out of the movie, and those were the ones I thought were pretty good.

    I thought those added a lot to those scenes, but I could understand why they were cut if you had a runtime to hit, and things like that. I also watched the featurette and Scoot (McNairy) was talking about how he didn’t want to meet Brad (Pitt) before their scene. That really made sense and added to the chemistry they had. Is that an ideal kind of scenario for a director, to have the actors not meet at all before their scenes?
    Andrew Dominik: You often do stuff like that. That was a really good idea of his. I’m not sure if I’ve ever done it that way before, but it worked out really good. It was his idea. He was just saying, ‘Look, I want to meet Jackie (Brad Pitt’s character) and I want to feel intimidated by him. I told Brad, and Brad thought it was a really good idea. Brad, actually, really gave Scoot a hard time, just gave him nothing, to keep him feeling intimidated and on the back foot all day long. Actors often do that sort of stuff naturally. If they’re supposed to know each other in the story, they’ll spend time together. If they’re supposed to be stand-off-ish, or not know each other, they’ll avoid each other. Actors will do anything they can, to make their performances work. In that case, it was really interesting because they literally didn’t meet until we started rolling the cameras. Scoot was just sitting there in the bar, and we turned the camera on and Brad walked in. We didn’t even call “action,” he was just sitting there, and he didn’t know that the scene was starting until it started.
    You shot this in New Orleans, but when we spoke before, you said you wanted to make it feel like Anytown U.S.A., in the midst of this economic downturn. Can you talk about finding the locations and what really stood out for you?

    Andrew Dominik: You just always try to make it live, those weeks you are shooting the film, you kind of live inside it. It was a weird movie, because, you know, most of it takes place in cars, and there is an awful amount of talking, you know. We were very, very focused, and it was hard and grueling work, when you’re shooting 10-minute scenes. Every little piece has to work, or it’s not going to work.

    It’s interesting that you have that approach, to shooting these really long scenes. Is that something you’re more comfortable with, getting as much in camera without so many edits?

    Andrew Dominik: It’s much more difficult to make a 10-minute scene work. It’s much, much, much more difficult. I’d like to make a film with a lot of short scenes. I think that would feel like a breeze.

    The last time we spoke, we talked about your next project Blonde. Are you still working on writing that?
    Andrew Dominik: I am, yeah. I’m trying to squeeze some money out of it, at the moment.

    Do you hope to shoot that this year then?
    Andrew Dominik: I’d love to.

    What would you like to say to anyone who didn’t get a chance to see Killing Them Softly in theaters about why they should pick up the Blu-ray or DVD?
    Andrew Dominik: Good movies are few and far between. Go see one with this. I feel like a fool stumping for my own film. I’m glad you’ll do it for me.

    I definitely will. Thank you so much. It was great talking to you again.
    Andrew Dominik: OK. Thanks.

    Angie Inspires Says:

    Rape and sexual violence have long been used as a weapon in conflict — a way to enact brutal violence on women and children who are by and large bystanders. There are myriad examples: The Rwandan genocide, the violence in Sierra Leone and the conflict in Bosnia, to name a few. But despite the hundreds of thousands of victims, rape as a weapon was only codified as an offense on an international level in 1998, when the Rome Statute named rape as a “crime against humanity.” (A little note on the Rome Statute: President Bill Clinton signed on to it in ’98, and then George W. Bush revoked our signature on it during his presidency.)Rape as a weapon continues to be a huge problem — hundreds of cases have been reported in relation to the ongoing conflict in Syria — and it serves a variety of purposes. Rape victimizes “the enemy,” emasculates the husbands, fathers and brothers of the victims, and can aid in the genocide of a culture by impregnating women with “the enemy’s” children — effectively tearing apart the binds of family and community. And, in the case of the Rwandan genocide, systematic sexual violence can result in widespread HIV infection. It was reported that after the 1994 Rwandan genocide, more than 500,000 women were infected with HIV/AIDS.
    Even so, sexual violence as a weapon of war gets little attention outside of NGOs like Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. Which is why it’s a good thing that U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Special Envoy Angelina Jolie is currently touring Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo, meeting with victims of sexual violence and documenting the lives of women impacted by conflicts in their respective countries.
    In addition to the trauma of sexual assault and rape, many of the women in these countries are cast out from their communities because of the culture of shame associated with being a victim of sexual violence. As a result, many victims are forced to leave their homes and move to encampments. Jolie visited the Nzulo camp in Goma, DRC, which houses more than 2,500 such victims. Sexual violence is commonly used by Congolese rebels and Congolese military. Jolie’s trip was sponsored by British foreign secretary William Hague, who has made the eradication of sexual violence as a weapon of war a major part of his platform.
    “Sexual violence in conflict has to be resolved if conflicts are going to be resolved,” he said. “When rape is used as a weapon of war it makes communities harder to bring together, and much harder for people to get on with their lives afterwards.”For more information on what’s happening in the DRC, and testimony from survivors of sexual violence, check out this Witness video, “Our Voices Matter.”

    @first and last post: Hi FALP, how are you today? FALP, I know you really are a teacher at heart and you love teaching. I have send you a comment many months ago saying how much I love to read your comments because you are so informative and thoroughly explain whatever point you are making.

    FALP, a few of us fans were having a good time commenting on the Jodi trial. I don’t believe any of us in the group commenting are lawyers, we were just using our common sense take on what we were watching.

    What I did not like about my jodi’s comment being replied to was the implied comment, not by you, that if one is not a lawyer you should not make a comment on a Open Court trial because we have no legal knowledge. That’s the way it came off to me and a few of us watching the trial by their comments.

    At one time, a reply, (not by you), mentioned something about Casey Anthony’s trial and how foolish those people who thought Casey was guilty are. Just because Casey was found not guilty does not mean she did not get away with murder. In the end, Casey was the only person who knew what had happened to her daughter who she wrapped in garbage bag and threw it in the woods as garbage. So those people who thought she was guilty was more right than those who thought she was innocent. To me taking our comment on Jodi and putting it up to Casey’s trial was another level of being disrecpte, jmo.

    Anyway, I digressed, there was also another fan taking us to task by names for our thoughts. We have a right to express our thoughts to the group. That was the fun of sharing thought with those watching the trial. For those not watching would not understand why we say what we

    FLAP, you know the the US Court is open to it’s citizens in order that the accused get a fair trial. Some will say the poor is not adequately represented because op money and the rich will get away with murder because they can cut better lawyers. That’s not what we were doing, we were just watching a narcissist murder trying to blame the victim for his own death.

    This is Jodi interrogation room comments: Dectative Florez, why are you crying? Jodi, for all things I’m going to miss out on.
    Jodi to Dectative Florez, is their anyway I can see some of those photos, Det Florez, Why? Jodi, morbid curiosity.
    Jodi asking Dectative Florez, this is going to look shallow, but can I clean up my self before my booking, in other words, put on make up for mug shot.
    FALP, I hope you understand the bottom line is, we are just having fun and it’s does not mean we know Jodi will be found guilty. All we have to do is look Casey A, OJ, Robert Blake and millions of people walking free while the deceased family and others believe they got away with murder, this is justice in America, jmo.

    derr @ 03/26/2013 at 2:38 pm Wars all over Africa and always at their root the control of rescources, whether gold,silver diamonds, oil, cocoa, uranium etc. by western industry and western bankers. All’s that is needed is a friendly puppet government. Rapes, violence, child soldiers, killings are the collateral damaget. Does Angelina evere get to the cause of such suffering ? in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Libya ? NO . S he is there for photo ops and to create the image that western powers are there to help. She has sold her soul to evil and it looks as if many want to follow her down.
    What you said in the initial part is true about resources and the richest countries using puppet governments and every method to obtain them but I don’t believe she is there for photo ops. Yes, the conversative minister is there for what amounts to a photo op because of what his government is really involved in. For AJ it is about using anyone to highlight the conditions because all our newspapers in the rich world are not doing it. The media has long colluded with governments, who in turn are owned by multi-nationals, because too many newspapers are owned by so few and the news amounts to little less than propaganda to keep the masses worried about what to wear. I believe AJ’s heart is good and one day she will become more politically aware and find the truth but at the moment she is there on behalf of the UN not in her own right to try and raise awareness and funds. The truth about how our rich countries are involved in the things that happen around the world is hidden and to find it you have to ignore newspapers and the news and find the truth which is soul destroying and makes you feel so powerless because so many in power use underhand methods. She is a good woman with a good heart…she will get there.

The Hollywood actress was finally spotted along with the UK Foreign Secretary William Hague visiting a rescue camp for women in the Democratic Republic of Congo to raise awareness of warzone rape on Tuesday afternoon. Angelina, a special envoy for the United Nations High Commissioner, said the issues need a “worldwide focus.” I think each time I see her doing this, I just adore her even more.

    Good Morning Groundcontrol, another very good articulate post from your self you have captured the British Politics to the T, your assessment of the UKIP when you said (“Problem is the UKIPers don’t give a shite about Africa and never will. What’s their motto – ignore Africa because it’s UK first, abolish inheritance taxes and keep those immigrants out of the UK”), to be honest i find the UKIPS as the cleaner version of BNP. Bothe anti Immigration & Pro British.

    As for people going on about Daily mails views really its one of the lamest newspapers in UK and not only that it doesn’t have any credibility in political views any way. William Hague is doing a brilliant Its rather pathetic piece of journalism by the daily mail reporters , Ephraim Hardcastle & women like Jade Watkins and Eleanor Gower, considering the severity of the subjects here we have men & women going on about glamorising the people instead of praising the efforts that have been input in highlighting these atrocities. they end up talking about engagement rings how pathetic is that. It one thing not liking the people and their chosen political backgrounds but its another thing in highlighting the continues perpetration of violence in this society, no matter what country or continent it is in.

    Considering this trip was pre planned months ago but would also coincide just before the annual G8 meeting, where Hague and Jolie will call on Great Britain, the United States, France, Canada, Japan, Germany, Russia, and Italy “to agree to landmark measures to secure justice for survivors of sexual violence and deter perpetrators. These include a new International Protocol on the Documentation and Investigation of Rape and Sexual Violence, agreement that rape and sexual violence constitute grave breaches of the Geneva Convention so that universal jurisdiction can apply, and practical commitments to help affected countries,”


    Instead of applauding them on their humanitarian mission people & women journalists and other entertainment sites tend to turn a blind eye that just annoys me and saddens me that people like these still exist amongst us. May this humanitarian partnership of William Hauge & Angelina Jolie prosper, in bringing the taboo subjects to the forefront they are giving the Voice to the “Voiceless” in opening a dialogue, long may it continue and these walls of ignorance be broacken brick by brick. sorry for my long winded rant just couldn’t resist, have nice day CG.

    Good Morning PT, ITA with you, like i was saying to groundcontrol these journalists are so pathetic, even turning this genuine atrocity that’s happening /happened to these innocent men & women, and turning it into some media circus of entertainment with the chants of wedding ring & where is the engagement ring. I would prefer shows like “The View” where you have a panel of women from all different ages discussing this but i bet they never mentioned that i bet the engagement ring was discussed,by the hag army. why cant they just get some balls for a change and report the actual NEWS instead of deflecting it away from the REAL NEWS.
    Angie and others like William are bringing this to the forefront of the international community, the perpetrators of these crimes who are walking away and the injustices carry on Like william said”
    ‘It is time for real, meaningful action by the governments of the world to say that the use of rape as a weapon of war is unacceptable, to bring perpetrators to justice and to lift the stigma from survivors.
    PT Isn’t it double standards, when its the likes of Clooney & Affleck just making one appearance regardless even its years apart, that it would be so lapped up and they would be portrayed as the “saviours of Congo & Darfur” considering the reality is in both Congo & Dafur cases , Angelina Jolie was the First Lady to highlight their plights to the international community , admittedly both Affleck & Clooney acknowledged that, but they still get away with taking all credit to them selves only as it was their idea to help and make a meal of it in th eprocess but no one disputes them do they?. why is it that any thing Angie does the media makes it as SO WHAT and moves on to meaningless things, when its some one else they its a big hoopla as if it was the 2nd coming.
    these pathetic Ticky hags don’t know when to shut up IF they are Women then shame on each and every one of them even including the Troll that thinks he is a man, making a mockery of rape & genocide is shameful thing if you are not able to say any thing productive just keep silent.

    Chelsea Handler said Angelina Jolie is not a girl’s girl and she is right. If being a girl’s girl means that you ***** about others, calls other women the C word, attacks children, having an abortion and boating about it, sleep your way up the ladder, then yes Angie is not a girl’s girl.

    Angelina is a woman’s woman who is taking care of her family, career and does everything in her power to help victims around the world – especially women and children. Angelina never gossips, parties all night long, ******* about others etc she is a true woman who respects women and tries her best to succeed in this male dominating world.

    Good Morning Rose
    How are you feeling know I hope you have recovered from your flu?,Thank you for the shout outs my dear sister from another mother. I had been quite snowed under at work so want able to come on to post let alone didn’t get time to visit the site. First Brads WWZ trailer looks Wicked with a capital W, wow love it and the poster gorgeous. then Angies Humanitarian news oh Rose is there any wonder we Love & Praise this women she can do no wrong in my eyes, I am so proud of her for bringing these Issues of Rape to the forefront of international by bringing the attention of Sexual violence that is frequently used as a weapon of war by rebel groups that operate in eastern Congo, as well as by Congolese soldiers. I love HER COMMITMENT & DEVOTION, to these causes,she is doing women proud all over the world i’m not including the bitter hags in this they will fore ever remain in the minority whose ethos is bigotry & ignorance towards any one facing these atrocities in this day n age, trolls rather turn a blind eye and not consider educating them selves by reading into the recorded statistics in the DRC are that more than 200,000 women and children have been raped in the past decade. This is what happens when society breaks down to its brutal elements.
    -Rose as for Angie’s ring i hate it when reporters deflect from real news and bring it down a notch to all things materialistic, is it any wonder that these people are so emotionally involved in the celebrity side but ignore looking at the bigger picture. As for the gold band that she is wearing its a matching ring with her gold bracelet that she is wearing if you see both are similar diamond set apart and any way when Angie got engaged didn’t she go on her first humanitarian visit as Special Envoy and she didn’t wear it there and people were still snarling about it why didn’t she wear her diamond ring lol. Haters are so invested in impractical things that is it any wonder they ignore what’s actually going around them.
    Rose good news that Angie is going to be Honouring Malala Yousafzai at Women in the World wow how great is that Rose i’m going to apply for some tickets if i can get some, is it any wonder Newsweek and The Daily Beast’s editor-in-chief, Tina Brown with whom Angie co-Funded $150,000 for the Malala Fund, is overjoyed in having Angie there. She is doing US proud

    As its written by another women it has its fair share of snark :

    Angelina Jolie and William Hague, the unlikely duo campaigning in a common cause

    27 March 2013 Credit Eveing Standards:Sarah Sands
    This was a special relationship nobody saw coming. The resolutely down-to-earth, Yorkshire-bred Foreign Secretary and the Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie. As one of the Foreign Office entourage put it: “You would think Boris and Angelina, but William and Angelina?” Now they have joined forces in what William Hague believes is a social agenda comparable with the abolition of slavery: the global eradication of sexual violence against women. “To the victor go the spoils” prevails in war zones from Syria to the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). It is truly a weapon of war. At a hospital near Goma in the DRC, a doctor treats women penetrated with knives and blunt instruments.


    They are an intriguing double act. Watching them in the DRC this week, visiting refugee camps to talk to victims of war rape, Jolie is the more visibly affected, at the Nzulo IDP refugee camp near Goma, both examine a basic stove — part of the poignantly named “dignity kit” that also includes a torch and whistle designed to prevent women getting raped while looking for firewood. Hague holds up the stove, part scout, part brimming with pity. “Something as simple as a whistle…” he says. Jolie wants to know if the stoves are sourced locally.

    At a second camp set up hurriedly at the side of the road to cope with fresh waves of refugees, within a few miles of the M23 rebel militia hiding in the hills, Hague and Jolie talk to small businesses. These are refugees given $20 on a sim card to begin investing in market stalls. An 18-year-old boy, orphaned by conflict, expresses gratitude for his own start-up but wishes for peace so that he can return home.

    Jolie’s asks if there is some way of reuniting him with his family. I wouldn’t put it past her.


    Really, if Hague should ever feel like spending more time in the Dales, Jolie could easily slip into his shoes. The only drawback is the limited scope of an island in Europe. Praising the initiative that the Foreign Secretary has shown on sexual violence in war zones, Jolie talks of “scaling it up” The recorded statistics in the DRC are that more than 200,000 women and children have been raped in the past decade. This is what happens when society breaks down to its brutal elements. The DRC has at least 20 named militia —in reality it is up to 100, according to a UN peacekeeper.


    The most ferocious currently is the M23, covertly supported by Rwanda. In the past week, the Congolese warlord Bosco Ntaganda, nicknamed “The Terminator”, handed himself over to the International Criminal Court. This is a man who boasted: “When you are a soldier, you get a woman for free.”

    As villages flee from the militia to hastily assembled refugee camps, families are separated and community ties lost. A woman collecting firewood outside the camps is assaulted because the men no longer answer to their families and are driven by rage and despair. As for the women, it is too late for dignity kits: they are destroyed by violence and then exclusion.“Extreme grief may ultimately vent itself in violence — but more generally takes the form of apathy,” wrote Joseph Conrad in Heart of Darkness.


    Into this lush and lawless land enters a slightly sunburned Yorkshire reformer and an actress who resembles an African antelope but who is made of steel. While the television crew underwent three days of hostile environment training for the trip, Jolie shrugged off personal danger. She was the very last to put on earplugs in the Russian-flown helicopter and did not flicker when the juddering aircraft turned around because the landing was too hazardous. A similar helicopter crashed in the area a few weeks ago.

    Jolie wanted no fuss, although VIP visits inevitably amount to 4x4s racing through markets, chaperoned transits through airports and groups of men in earpieces with the thighs of prop forwards. These were especially incongruous when trying to merge among women and children at the camps. The women took it in good spirit. Although their circumstances were wretched, their lives wrenched from their roots, they still broke into a joyous chorus.


    Therein lies the hope. As Hague and Jolie put it, have faith in the women. Or as the doctor in a centre treating sexual violence says: “A lady can smile and say, ‘Yes, I am a human’.” And then they teach their husbands “how to be men”. At the centre we met a woman who had been beaten and raped by the militia — her husband shunned her and she was left with five children, and pregnant by her rapist. It is a definition of powerlessness. The reason the Foreign Secretary and Jolie have taken up this cause owes much to Hague’s special adviser, the Bosnian born, Arminka Helic. She saw Jolie’s film, In the Land of Blood and Honey, and replicated the Bosnian experience. When a nation or society is crushed and degraded, it violates its women. If women are permitted dignity, if they are valued, then societies and economies will flourish.


    For the first time in G8’s history, the subject of war rape will be discussed in London on April 11.

    Feminism has been on Western terms. Ceilings must be broken but first women in countries such as the DRC must be given basic human rights. If you have no recourse to justice, if you are simply collateral damage from war, you are a step from slavery. To their UK critics, the Foreign Secretary’s escapade with an actress is a vain distraction from “serious” issues.To the biographer of Wilberforce and an actress who is more of an NGO, lifting women out of hopelessness will advance humanity a little. It would be curmudgeonly not to wish them well.

How is work Shi, and how’s the S.crewing with the minds of Trolls going keep up the good work. Love Angies Congo work in highlighting the plights of these Rape Victims. Angie is one inspirational women that never shy’s away from hard subjects and will see it though whatever cause she takes on board god bless her. She is not only inspiring Her daughter but also inspiring other daughters around the world to stand up against any kind of inhumanity and giving voice to the ” Voiceless men & women” I include men as well due the fact rape rape should not and isn’t only associated to women as its victims it unfortunately in its fatality included men & young innocent children. I hope & pray the G8 takes notice and not only the G8 but also other communities around the world the Rape is not accepted and will not be accepted any more. Look at places like India men & women are standing up and voicing their concerned of the daily rape that goes on in that country, its a long battle to win but its the battle of having a voice heard that’s started the ball rolling.

    I cannot tell you how proud we are as women in seeing another women Rise above and taking centre stage in highlighting these issues, yes there are many women like Angelina Jolie that are helping make awareness of these atrocities and asking for help in these causes, lets all add our voices to the voiceless and show our support by supporting the likes of Angelina Jolie & William Hague in their fight against inhumanity.

    Angelina Jolie and William Hague form unlikely double act to tackle rape in war, Wednesday 27 March 2013 08.57 EDT

    Several Hollywood actors through the years have tried to use their fame to change the world, or at least a government policy or two. And there has been no shortage of politicians who have sought to harness the megawattage of celebrity to push their policies. Few have pulled off this alchemy quite as effectively as Angelina Jolie and William Hague in their joint campaign for international action against mass rape in conflicts.

    They have been collaborating since last May on a multipronged initiative, with projects ranging from shaming public officials into action to funding women’s clinics and dispatching forensic experts to the Syrian borders, Libya, Mali and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

    For the past four days the film star and foreign secretary have visited waterlogged refugee camps near the frontlines around Goma, eastern DRC, meeting rape survivors, women’s groups and doctors to publicise the effort before putting it on the G8 agenda this year.

    Jolie says that when she started to publicise the issue she had not wanted to have anything to do with governments. Since then, she says, she has realised their money and power have their uses. Asked what she wanted to get out of the partnership with Her Majesty’s Government, she replied straight away: “An end to impunity.”

    “There were hundreds of thousands of women raped during the Rwandan genocide. There are hundreds of thousands of people being raped in the Congo. Tens of thousands of women raped in Bosnia. God knows how many people raped in Syria,” Jolie said in an interview with the Guardian on Hague’s RAF plane, after thunderstorms had stopped a helicopter trip to a women’s hospital, and officials plotted alternative itineraries.

    “I would like them to know they are not alone and that violence against them is something the world will no longer stand for and it’s not something they are expected to simply tolerate. I think they have been expected to do so and I think people have come to see rape in war as something that just happens, that is a part of war,” Jolie said. “We will no longer simply stand idly by.”

    The British foreign secretary flatly admits that it was Jolie’s film, Land of Blood and Honey, that inspired his commitment to the cause. The film, Jolie’s directing debut, is the very opposite of a Hollywood blockbuster. It is a gruelling depiction of the rape camps in Bosnia where up to 50,000 women were sexually abused. The cast is entirely Balkan, as is the dialogue, with subtitles. It was rapturously received in Sarajevo and barely seen anywhere else.

    The aim, Jolie says, was to give the victims a voice and to move policy-makers, an oft-stated goal of political films. But on this occasion it does appear to have worked.

    “It was when I saw Angelina’s film that I decided we should launch a global initiative on this,” Hague told the Guardian. “When you get into the detail of it, it’s too terrible not to do something about. What is the point of politics if you don’t address such issues, and if your position in the world enables you to see and understand the sheer extent of the horror, then you have a responsibility to do something about it.”

    It is the ultimate odd couple pairing, of course, of the sort that films are made about: the resolutely unflashy northern Tory and a world-famous tinseltown progressive. But on this issue their views are so closely aligned that after a few days’ joint campaigning together they are finishing each other’s sentences.

    Jolie strongly backs Hague’s decision to set up a team of around 70 British experts to deploy to conflict zones, including health experts and counsellors but also police officers who can train local people to collect and store evidence of rape, the lack of which has help stymie war crimes prosecutions for sexual violence. The UK government is also funding locked evidence cabinets to keep the DNA evidence secure and cool.

    “Evidence-collecting on the border is so crucial,” Jolie said. “There is a backlog of cases, so to try to collect evidence and speak to the people during the situation [is vital], to give them assistance immediately after crisis, if you can’t reach them during … to start to hear their voices and support them.”

    She points out that although there were up to 50,000 cases of rape in the Bosnian conflict there have been only about 30 war crimes convictions for sexual crimes.

    “The hope and dream is that the next time this happens, that somehow, during a crisis, during a war, it’s known that if you abuse the women, if you rape the w

Any ho who claims a woman who won’t drink, snort, toke and ho around with her isn’t a “girl’s girl” is right. Angie’s not a girl’s girl.

    Please don’t get me started on Porgie & Ben Aflac (not a typo – he’s just as annoying as that fvcking duck). Angie was in Congo and Darfur 5-8 years before they ever heard of those places. After seeing what a butthead Aflac is to his wife and kids I’m sort of inclined to believe he’s using his work in DRC as just another excuse to NOT be home with them. Saves a heckuva lot of money on a divorce.

    As it always happens with her staged photo ops, the shape-shifting reptilian is photographed looking bright, staring and smiling down at the unfortunate, hopeless people from an angle where we can’t see their faces. This cheap PR tactic is meant to illustrate how our Lady of the Refugees is there shine light on everyone, no matter who they are, and make their lives better. It also has to do with the fact that these people don’t know who the extremely pale and skinny lady is supposed to be. LOL.

    In a few days, her Sad Face world tour 2013 will conclude and she will be photographed at the airport, carrying another LV bag that could be used to feed an entire village. She will be back at the Chateau (if Pitty lets her in) and then she’ll go play with her knives and guns stored in her $400K armory.

    Truth be told, she loves for this impoverished, conflicted regions to stay that way, because those are the places where she can walk among the people and think of herself as their savior and a living deity, and buy anything and anyone she wants. One of her biggest acts of hypocrisy is trying to denounce the abuse these people are going through, when she herself adopted a girl named Teena and claimed the mother had died from AIDS.

    Furthermore, it wasn’t so long ago when she was about to have Shiloh and had the corrupt Namibian government shut down their borders on a whim, with the excuse of keeping the paps away. In other words, this self-appointed fauxmanitarian enables the corruption that takes place in the third world and at the same time denounces it. Disgusting in every aspect.

    Another good article…from another REAL NEWSPAPER. What’s really sad to me is that there’s not anything they can do to change the attitudes of the men who are raping women and children. To me that’s a big sticking point. As long as them men continue to think of women as prizes or theirs for the taking I don’t see how it will ever end. I just doubt that fear of prosecution is enough of a deterrent. A lot of tis is happening in societies where women are chattel and kids are an axtra mouth to feed. How do you even begin changing things like social mores – especially among a mainly uneducated populace? These don’t strike me as people too concerned with social ettiquette or the ethics of war. There’s a real caveman mentality at work with these men – me see, me want, me take, me break, me done, now go away. Actually, now that I think of it, the trolls work on the same principle…

    The euro is in crisis, so what is our Foreign Secretary doing in Rwanda with Angelina Jolie?
    25 March 2013

    With Cyprus being pulled back from the brink of collapse and the euro on the verge of meltdown, you might expect the Foreign Secretary to be rather tied up.

    But there are some engagements, it seems, that simply can’t be put off.

    William Hague has come under fire for travelling to Africa with Angelina Jolie – rather than staying at home to face the somewhat less glamorous task of dealing with the European crisis.

    With the Hollywood star by his side, Mr Hague is meeting survivors of r ape and sexual violence in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Foreign Secretary and the Oscar-winning actress have also been meeting local political leaders and asking them to help eradicate sexual violence in conflicts.

    But critics have argued that Mr Hague should be focusing his attentions closer to home. Last night William Dartmouth, foreign affairs spokesman for UKIP, said he should be concentrating on the fall-out from Cyprus’s economic crisis, which could have a huge impact for all of Europe.

    The MEP added: ‘William Hague should be more concerned with the crisis on our doorstep than chasing PHOTO OPS with Hollywood stars.

I have to agree with the panelists who say they don’t think Juan will attack this witness because she’s so grandmotherly and she really adds nothing to Jodi’s defense. Not a fan of either of Jodi’s lawyers. JMO!

    OT – For my fellow Duck Dynasty addicts -
    Looks like there’s a hold-up on a 4th season. They want more money per episode. THey’re asking for $200K per episode for the entire family, which really isn’t all that much when you consider how many people there are – Willie, Korie, Jase, Missy, Phil, Kay, Jep, Rebecca, Si, Willie’s 2 teenagers, Jase’s 2 teenagers, and a bunch of younger grandkids. $200K sounds like a bargain to me when you consider they only make 12 episodes in a “season”. That’s a measley $2.4MIL – epecially since Duck Dynasty is now their highest rated show and wins it’s timeslot.

I can see it now, everything she contributed to Travis doing to Jodi, Mr Martinez going to turn it around on Jodi. There are so many instances of Jodi stalking Travis harassing him.

    —” William Hague has come under fire for travelling to Africa with Angelina Jolie – rather than staying at home to face the somewhat less glamorous task of dealing with the European crisis.

    With the Hollywood star by his side, Mr Hague is meeting survivors of r ape and sexual violence in Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. The Foreign Secretary and the Oscar-winning actress have also been meeting local political leaders and asking them to help eradicate sexual violence in conflicts. “—-

    i ask : It´s more glamorous to go to Africa and walk among the pour refuges in a camp full of millions of tents made of plastic bags,?

    it´s more glamorous to see the misery and the agony of childrens and womans without clothes and food, ??

    t´s more glamorous to talk with small childrens and womans r.ape by groups of insane mans??

    It´s more glamorous to leave your family and your good life in a trip to Africa?

    It´s more glamorous to meet a five years old little girl r.ape by a bunch of grow up idiots ??

    It´s more glamorous to spend time talking about R.APE of womans and childrens and sex slaves and crimes against humanity ???

    this all it´s more GLAMOROUS than stay in England or USA working in other problem ???

    Jolie Gold Band Spotted Again, Actress Honors Rwandan Genocide Victims
    Angelina Jolie has been seen wearing the gold band that replaced her engagement ring again while in the Congo on Sunday. The Academy Award-winning actress embarked on a special visit to eastern Congo and Rwanda in order to raise awareness of sexual violence in war torn countries this week. Dressed in all black, Jolie laid wreaths at the Gisozi genocide memorial in the Rwandan capital of Kigali on Sunday. The ceremony honored the estimated 800,000 victims that died during the country’s 1994 violence between the Hutu and Tutsi tribes.In addition to the headlines made over her sympathy for the genocide victims, Jolie’s gold band worn on her wedding finger have sparked rumors that she may have already married fiancé Brad Pitt.
    Jolie and Pitt have been together since 2005 and share six children together. The pair announced their engagement late last year, but have not confirmed any wedding plans.
    Meanwhile, Jolie is a special envoy for the U.N. refugee agency. The 37-year-old actress traveled to the Nzulo camp near Goma along with British Foreign Secretary William Hague over the weekend and will visit the area’s female natives, according to the Associated Press. Sexual violence is commonly used as a weapon of war by rebel groups that operate in eastern Congo, as well as by Congolese soldiers. Jolie’s visit to the Democratic Republic of the Congo as well as Rwanda will raise awareness about its presence in war zones.

    Warzone rape: a plea to the president of Congo

    Visiting Congo with film star Angelina Jolie, UK Foreign Secretary William Hague goes to Kinshasa to lobby President Kabila to back their campaign against warzone rape.

    After days touring the fetid, muddy camps for people who have fled the fighting, William Hague’s visit to President Kabila at his residence on the banks of the mighty river Congo couldn’t have been more of a contrast.

    Admittedly, Kinshasa is nearly a thousand miles from Goma, where the foreign secretary has been meeting women displaced by the conflict between different rebel groups and government forces. But it might as well be a different country.

    The women in the camps told Mr Hague about a life of fear and desperation. They’re at daily risk of being raped by rebels like the M23 or the Mai-Mai or, indeed, the Congolese army. And it was their testimony which informed Mr Hague’s discussion with the president this morning.
    Private meeting

    President Kabila has a reputation for being extremely reserved and reluctant to speak publicly. Perhaps this has something to do with the assassination of his father, whom he succeeded as president on his death in 2001.

    Or perhaps it’s because he’s reluctant to be challenged on why people in this country – which has more diamonds, gold and rich agricultural land than any other in Africa – live in abject poverty.

    Whatever the reason, we were told that, despite travelling with the foreign secretary all week, we wouldn’t get anywhere near the meeting with the president. Apparently, Mr Kabila’s usual practice is to admit the first car in the motorcade before abruptly bringing down the barrier, no matter how many hangers-on his visitor has brought.

    I’m told that once Mr Hague’s car gained access to the presidential residence, he was shown into the steaming heat of the tropical garden.

    There, officials say a big chunk of the discussion revolved around the foreign secretary’s campaign against warzone rape. The women we spoke to in the camps are some of the 200,000 – probably a huge under-estimate – raped in the country since 1998.
    Loss of moral authority

    Mr Hague emphasised the importance of treating women with respect. Mr Kabila was apparently keen to listen. But it was less clear he grasped the scale of the problem.

    Dr Jonathan Lusi, the gynaecologist we met yesterday, who repairs the horrific internal injuries caused by rape, says that years of war in the country have triggered a complete breakdown of all the structures of society and governance we take for-granted. There is, Dr Lusi told me, no “moral authority” in the Congo any more.

    There’s a contrast here with the rape that occurred during the Bosnian war. There it was part of a systematic programme of ethnic cleansing. It was an organised campaign – and no less terrifying for that. Here though, you get the sense from Dr Lusi that it’s a free-for-all, where anything goes. That’s going to be much harder to put a stop to, because the problem goes much deeper.

    The conversation between Mr Hague and Mr Kabila was cordial, even constructive, government officials say.

    The foreign secretary gave him his book on William Pitt – the youngest British prime minister at 26. Mr Kabila took over from his father at 29. Now 41, no doubt he’s too busy trying to forge an uneasy peace to read the foreign secretary’s bon mots.

    The incidence of sexual violence in the Congo is, to coin a phrase from the foreign secretary, a “monstrosity”. But it’s a monstrosity that Mr Kabila appears content – or obliged – to resolve another day or another decade.

    I watched it and Haas was on fire. He didn’t try to out hit Nole, he hit him with a variety of shot, slices, droppers, a lot of net plays. (RF needs to go back to playing this way instead of staying on the baseline like the big hitters but that’s another story) Plus it was very windy and cold, Nole doesn’t like the cold and he doesn’t do well in the wind. IMO, Nole didn’t play poorly, Haas was just in top form last night.
    Yeah, I am hoping some one will take both out especially Murray. If not your boo, then hopefully Haas will win it. Your boo already won a Masters 1000, think last Oct/Nov, in Paris.

    UK Foreign Secretary & Angelina Jolie attend screening of DRC gender justice film
    27 March 2013
    On 26 March 2013, the UK Foreign Secretary, William Hague, and Angelina Jolie met with the Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice and some of its DRC partners for a special screening of their gender justice film, Our Voices Matter, in Goma, Eastern DRC. In response to the film, UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie said: “We came to the DRC to highlight issues of sexual violence and you have made our work easier – the film says it all. It is often difficult for women to speak about these types of experiences and it is incredible that they trusted the organisation and your partners to tell their stories – the film was very moving. This is just the beginning of our collaboration on these issues.”

    The UK Foreign Secretary, William Hague, congratulated the Women’s Initiatives on its work and said that “what you are doing to promote accountability for sexual violence is very important, and I am happy to announce funding for the Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice of GBP 850,000 (US$1.3 million) over the next three years to further support your work.”

    “The priority being given to this issue by the UK government is helping to mobilise a strategic response to reduce the high levels of impunity for crimes of sexual violence common in situations of armed conflict such as in Eastern DRC,” said Brigid Inder, Executive Director of the Women’s Initiatives for Gender Justice.

    Angelina Jolie Wears Gold Band on Ring Finger, Visits Africa on Mission to Fight Rape: Picture


    Actress Angelina Jolie and the UK Foreign Secretary William Hague visit a rescue camp for women on March 25, 2013 in the Democratic Republic of Congo to raise awareness of warzone rape.
    Did Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie manage to pull off the impossible — a secret wedding in Hollywood? During a trip to a rescue camp in the Democratic Republic of Congo this week, Pitt’s 37-year-old fiancee was spotted with some mysterious new bling on her ring finger: a simple gold band where her giant platinum engagement sparkler used to be.

    PHOTOS: Brad and Angelina’s PDA

    The Maleficent actress and special envoy of the United Nations’ refugee agency is currently in Africa with British Foreign Secretary William Hague to raise awareness of warzone rape in the Congo and Rwanda. On Monday, March 25, she visited a rescue camp to meet with survivors of sexual violence.

    Jolie, who has six kids with longtime love Pitt, pledged last year to devote more time to her humanitarian work. “I wake up in the morning as a mom, and I turn on the news like everybody else, and I see what’s happening,” she said. “I want to be part of the world in a positive way.”

    PHOTOS: Angelina goes global

    The star noted that her family played a large part in her desire to help others. She and Pitt adopted three of their children from other countries and have made a concerted effort to stay connected to those cultures.

    And to each other, of course. Last spring, after seven years together, the World War Z actor popped the question with a ring he designed himself — an emerald-cut diamond surrounded by smaller diamonds, estimated to be around 16 carats total and worth approximately $500,000.

    PHOTOS: How Brad and Angie fell in love

    The A-list couple had said previously that they wouldn’t wed until the ban on gay marriage was reversed, but in January 2012, Pitt hinted that they had changed their minds. “We’d actually like to,” he told The Hollywood Reporter of tying the knot, “and it seems to mean more and more to our kids.”

    “We made this declaration some time ago that we weren’t going to do it till everyone can. But I don’t think we’ll be able to hold out,” he continued. “It means so much to my kids, and they ask a lot. And it means something to me, too, to make that kind of commitment.”

    Angelina Jolie has called for an end to the “impunity” of those who carry out rape in warzones during a visit to the Democratic Republic of Congo with British Foreign Secretary William Hague.

    Jolie and Hague have been meeting with women and girls in eastern Congo, where sexual violence is rampant and frequently used as a weapon of war by rebel groups, as well as by Congolese soldiers.

    Their joint trip comes after they met in London last year and launched the U.K.’s Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative.

    “It’s been going on in every war, every crisis and it’s often an afterthought — and it’s due time to end this, and put an end to impunity, and [the Congolese people] deserve it,” Jolie said.

    The International Rescue Committee says it has provided care to more than 2,500 women and girls who have been raped or abused over the last year alone. The IRC is handing out kits with flashlights and whistles, as well as cleaning products so that women can avoid bathing at creeks where the risk of assault is higher.

    Jolie and Hague visited a refugee camp of about 10,000 displaced Congolese people, where the Oscar-winning actress was quick to note their resilience.

    “It’s often that we speak about the drama and the pain and the horrors of the Congo but it’s also a wonderful place with extraordinary people,” Jolie said during her visit to the camp.

    I hear ya about Roger. Nole not liking the cold is funny since his parents used to have a restaurant in the mountains in Serbia. They may still have it but I’m not sure. I know Nole doesn’t like the wind though because he beyotched about at the US Open last year.
    Now, I have to tell on myself. The main reason I want My Boo to win is because it will put him ahead of BDB in the rankings. Since Roger’s not going to be playing probably until early May he’s going to drop to at least 3rd, maybe 4th if BDB wins all the clay titles again – as expected. Frankly I’d rather see him in Nole’s half than BDBs or Murray’s. If Murray wins he’ll probably pass Roger for #2. That way if Roger loses before the final then I won’t have to watch BDB dig his undies out of his ass for 3 hours. Self-preservation…that’s what I’m all about. My Boo wins…saves my eyesight…he loses…Roger’s in BDB’s half of the draw…

    Jolie’s true talent is exploiting people’s tragedies for self gain. That has been her main goal, advised by her PR team, as her career was on a downward spiral after the brother-kissing scandal, the drugs, the BBT drug vial-carrying and in-your-face relationship, the mental institution stint, and the cheating scandal and homewrecking that she caused. She simply needed something to whitewash her sordid, shameful and disgraceful past. That’s when she began her child collecting with her first legally-questionable adoption and created this fauxmanitarian character.

    Who can take seriously someone who publicly denounce wars and pretend to sympathize with victims of violence when said person is in fact an avid advocate of unrestricted gun possession and has even a $400K armory built in her house? The oppressors of these refugees carry many of the same guns that Ho and Pothead have stored in there. What a huge indecency and shameless fallacy is to support the gun manufacturing industry by buying from them, when they also sell these guns to those who have used them on the innocent people that she claims to care about.

    valis202 Says:

    In regards to a previous post by PT about the attitudes towards women in certain cultures that enables men to think that it is ok to rape women. I totally agree with her point that it is going to be difficult to change the attitude of these men.

    I remember reading an article about the rape of little girls in Southern Africa by men who have been infected by the HIV virus. In some parts, they believe that having sex with a virgin will cure then of the virus, so they see nothing wrong with raping young girls (even babies in fact) because they believe that it will cure them.

    If you are dealing with steadfast beliefs like that, then it seems it’s going to be an uphill battle trying to change attitudes.

    This week’s cover: Brad Pitt’s epic struggle to make ‘World War Z’

    by EW staff

    Comments +Add comment

    Nobody ever said making the most expensive zombie movie of all time would be easy. For Brad Pitt and the filmmakers behind the upcoming thriller World War Z, it certainly hasn’t been. This week’s issue of EW takes you inside the tumultuous production of the blockbuster hopeful, which has involved reshoots, re-writes, and a budget that has ballooned from $125 million to over $170 million. “These movies are very intricate puzzles, and you have to keep winding the mechanisms,” Pitt says, while on the Paramount lot.
    World War Z, which is based on the best-selling book by Max Brooks, took six years to develop and shoot, and a carousel of writers had their hands on the script before the project ever moved into production. Even after the initial shoot, the script overhaul continued. In October 2011, Paramount brought on Prometheus scribe Damon Lindelof to help tweak the third act, and Lindelof enlisted The Cabin in the Woods director and co-writer Drew Goddard for some assistance. Their changes called for five weeks of reshoots — not to mention an extensive portion of the film shot in Budapest ending up on the cutting room floor. “At the time I was really interested in a more political film,” says Pitt of the cut Budapest scenes. “[But] we got bogged down in it; it was too much to explain. It gutted the fun of what these films are meant to be.”
    Perhaps that sense of “fun” was missing due to reported on-set tension between Pitt and his German-born director, Marc Forster, the helmer of Finding Neverland and Quantum of Solace. When asked to address rumors that they stopped speaking to each other during shooting, Forster and Pitt both shrug. “We’re in here every day, pounding away,” Pitt says.
    At the end of the day, both Forster and Pitt, who is also producing the film, want World War Z to be the exciting, franchise-launching hit they both believe it could be. (If it does well, there are plans to turn it into a trilogy.) They hope audiences will respond to the film’s lightning-fast zombies that move in animal pack formations, and — as the new trailer proves — can swarm like a colony of ants to mount a huge wall. “[We asked] how to do it differently because
    it’s been done so many times and been done pretty damn well,” says Pitt.

    I am still lurking here every day & really miss the thumbs gadget. Sometimes I want to reach through my monitor and slap the trolls here silly. I see Tampon changed his name to the ring to match the one around his sweaty puffed up neck collar.

    I don’t know how Angelina Jolie does it? This beautiful woman has always kept her clutches on my heart in all that she does for this world. She is like a angel to me with her generosity and kindness and being a voice for so many. God love sweet and graceful Angelina Jolie! No wonder she still has her man Brad, to hold her close every night, where would he be without the “love of his life?”

    Many Many Blessings to the JP’s and to their family and friends and to their fans here and all over the world. <3

    The UK already pledge 1 million to help their cost and For the first time in G8’s history, the subject of war rape will be discussed in London on April 11. I hope you FUGLISTON knows what a G8 is.. so FYI for the braindead TICKY’s fans .. “The Group of Eight (G8) is an economic and political organization designed to bring about discussion and effect change among the world’s most powerful nations. It includes Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the United States, and the United Kingdom. Although the leaders of these countries keep in touch to varying degrees anyway, they meet as the G8 summit once a year in order to discuss the state of world economics and politics. ”

    While Angelina Jolie is discusing issues of great importance the FUGLISTOn can’t get over that their FUGLY idol was dumped by Brad Pitt a hundred years ago according to their idol themselves. And yes FUGLISTON this work of Angelina Jolie is not covered by the tabloid s.h.i.t which the FUGLISTON only read but it was covered by BBC and all the legitimate medias out there that do not report lame starlet called JENNIFER F.U.C.KNISTON !!

    March/April 2013
    Guest Editor: Tom Darden
    A conversation with Make It Right’s executive director, Brad Pitt’s man on the ground in New Orleans
    By Melanie Loth

    Tom Darden is the executive director of Make It Right, a nonprofit organization building LEED Platinum homes in disadvantaged neighborhoods of New Orleans.
    The Make It Right foundation is doing some amazing things in post-Katrina New Orleans. Although Brad Pitt is the celebrity face of the organization, Tom Darden is the man who makes everything happen. As the organization’s executive director, Darden is essentially a nonprofit developer in the Lower Ninth Ward—he’s finding the families, securing the financing, and coordinating the construction for 150 homes. Homes by the likes of Frank Gehry and Thom Mayne.

    Darden carved time out of his busy schedule to serve as gb&d’s Guest Editor for our Mar/Apr 2012 issue. We ended up talking about everything from his accidental ascent to executive director of Make It Right to the daily challenges of acting as a de facto nonprofit developer. He also shared with us an innovative (and affordable!) prefab, a new book by William McDonough (whom he’s lucky enough to call a family friend), and his effort to build the nation’s largest concentration of LEED Platinum homes. Read the conversation and see his picks below.

    Green Building & Design: Tom, you were the first volunteer for Make It Right, but what made you decide to volunteer for this purpose as opposed to other Hurricane Katrina relief programs?

    Tom Darden: That’s a bit of a long story. I heard about Brad Pitt’s idea for helping rebuild the Lower Ninth Ward sustainably from William McDonough; Bill’s a family friend of ours. He received a call from Brad and the architecture firm GRAFT, and they were brainstorming how they could help. My real-estate partner, at the time, and I were looking for a way to do some volunteer work after the storm but weren’t really sure how to get plugged in. So I heard about this concept, and we volunteered to do some research on this idea.

    Pick No. 1: Nest. “The Nest thermostat learns your habits and adjusts the temperature automatically to your personal preferences. It’s the best programmable thermostat on the market for saving energy while keeping your home warm or cool. Plus, it just released its second generation.”
    gb&d: Before Make It Right, you’d worked in sustainable development. Was that a factor in becoming its executive director?

    TD: When I became executive director, it was more that I was the guy who was standing there. After the volunteer work that I did, we put together a plan for how to go about building these houses. We worked really closely with the community to develop a concept, and then we set up the 501(c)3. Once we rolled out the effort publicly, we had volunteer architects contribute the designs. My role as a volunteer sort of shifted, and I became the first employee, I guess you could say, of this new foundation.

    gb&d: You have some of the biggest names in architecture designing for Make It Right. How did you get them on board?

    Pick No. 2: Adobe Online. “Adobe now has all its design programs online and available for a small monthly fee. Great to have these powerful design tools available at an affordable price for small businesses or nonprofits.”
    TD: Brad had the idea of asking the world’s best architects to help think about this problem: How do you rebuild a community that was completely devastated in a way that’s going to be sustainable for the long-term? The ultimate goal is to design around the needs of these families, and so, who better to ask for their input than some of the world’s most creative minds in architecture? Originally, we wanted nine firms because we just seemed to keep coming across this idea of nine. We were working in the Lower Ninth Ward, we had nine community partners, so we thought, “Why don’t we ask nine architecture firms?” We asked 13, just because we figured some would be busy, and we asked them to donate their time and told them that we couldn’t pay them. And all 13 of them said yes. I remember having a conversation with Brad where I was saying, “Okay, this is interesting; we have 13 instead of nine. How are we going to figure out who to cut?” And he just said, “Nah, we’re just going to go with 13.”

    gb&d: You’ve said that Brad Pitt is a tough boss, how has his vision affected the way you run Make It Right?

    Pick No. 3: Vapur Water Bottle. “I carry this anti-water bottle with me everywhere. It rolls up and fits in my bag, perfect for travelling and running from meeting to meeting.”
    TD: I would say that he is the visionary, so I see my job in a lot of ways as executing his vision, and the vision that was developed by the community. So when I’ve said that he’s a tough boss, I mean that he has very high expectations.

    gb&d: What are his expectations?

    TD: Nothing short of close to perfectly executed performance. He expects the best out of the people that he works with, and I think that that spills over into how we go about our day here at Make It Right.

    gb&d: Make It Right is not only the largest cluster of LEED Platinum homes in the country, but also a cluster of high-design homes. How will that impact the community?

    TD: It wasn’t necessarily our goal to revolutionize architecture across New Orleans or in the Lower Ninth Ward. It was just to build the best houses for these families, and what came out of it was very high design. This neighborhood was historically and culturally significant before Katrina but not architecturally significant. We were replacing slab-on grade, post-World War, ranch-style houses with something that was architecturally significant that the community can be proud of.

    gb&d: What’s been the most unique challenge?

    TD: My job is that of a nonprofit developer, so we’re not just a builder, we’re basically organizing the development, everything from assembling the property to working with these families. When I go to work every day, it’s probably significantly different than the day that I’ve had before. And every day something really bad happens, and then something really great happens. It’s a constant up-down, up-down; my job is the opposite of boring.

    Pick No. 4: LivingHomes’ C6. “Since 2006, LivingHomes has developed modular LEED Platinum homes designed by top architects like Ray Kappe and Kieran Timberlake. C6 [is] their most affordable LEED Platinum home to date [and] is an important step in lowering the cost of sustainable design.”gb&d: Do other developers ask for your help?

    TD: All the time. Recently, we worked on a project in Newark, New Jersey, where we partnered with a nonprofit builder and developer, and we finished a 56-unit building for disabled veterans. So our role was to take that from being a conventional building to a LEED Platinum building without adding any costs, which we did successfully. Now we’re looking at a similar project in Kansas City, Missouri. We wanted to prove that if you’re going to be building any new building or doing a rehab, then you can build to these high standards without adding any costs. If you can prove that, then there’s really no excuse for building any other way.

    Pick No. 5: The Upcycle. “William McDonough and Michael Braungart’s ground-breaking book Cradle-to-Cradle: Remaking the Way We Make Things was the single biggest influence on how Make It Right builds homes. I’ve got a galley copy of their new book, The Upcycle—everyone interested in green homes and sustainability should read it.”
    gb&d: How has the philosophy of ‘cradle-to-cradle’ inspired the organization?

    TD: Cradle to Cradle really is inherent to everything that we do. So that’s the reason that Brad called Bill to begin with. Bill and his team worked with the other architects to help make sure that the cradle-to-cradle perspective was being brought to the design table. They making sure that we’re not just thinking about these houses as using less energy, but let’s aspire to be better than zero, let’s be positive, let’s create energy. We’re not going to be ‘energy efficient’ or ‘net-zero,’ because that means that if we didn’t exist, that would be better for everybody. We want to be positive. In some ways it’s a never-ending goal. We talk about the houses as cradle-to-cradle inspired because as of now, there’s no such thing as a home built in the United States to code that is a full cradle-to-cradle house. But whenever we’re using materials that we know aren’t optimal because we don’t have another alternative, at least we’ve flagged those materials and we’re constantly looking for a replacement.

    gb&d: You’ve built or commissioned 87 homes to date, just more than halfway to your goal of 150. What happens after 150?

    TD: Post-150… an exciting thing to think about. We recently completed a strategic plan to help guide that. We really just want to keep building in New Orleans, but that’s a funding question. We’re also focusing on making sure that the community in the Lower Ninth Ward is sustainable for the long-run in every sense of that word. When I say ‘sustainable,’ let me strike that, and say ‘vibrant.’ We want to make a community that’s not only full with beautiful, green houses but also that has access to community businesses. We’d love to do a community center or a visitor’s center. Recently, we redesigned the streetscapes in the area to use pervious concrete instead of traditional asphalt, and the city is putting it in as we speak. We want to make sure that the other needed community services are there, and there in a sustainable way.

    Pick No. 6: Sector 9 Skateboard. “Make It Right recently worked with Mountain Dew to build and design the first sustainable skate park in New Orleans. I used to skate as a kid, and I’ve picked it up again, riding this board to work and back home.”
    gb&d: Is Make It Right involved in other community projects outside the Lower Ninth Ward?

    TD: Make It Right Solar does work with other nonprofits around the city, and really the region, and we definitely are a part of a lot of education work with local universities. We try to be a part of the green building community here in New Orleans and beyond.

    gb&d: What has this project taught you about design?

    TD: It can have a transformative effect on people’s lives. It really can make an impact on the way people view the world and how they interact with their family and their home. It is a critical element for any builder to consider.

    gb&d: What have you learned about New Orleans?

    TD: Well, this place is like no other in the world, I will say that. It just exudes culture. I said that my job is never boring; well, this city is never boring. There is always something going on, and the people just love this place like no other residents of any city I have experienced. There is this deep, deep love of everything New Orleans. And it’s the food, it’s the music, it’s the culture, it’s this blend of different ethnicities and races and religions, and you end up getting this pot of gumbo that is unique to New Orleans.

    gb&d: After seven years, would you consider yourself a New Orleanian?

    TD: That’s a bit of a loaded question. Seven years probably isn’t long enough

    @derr: Give us a break nobody! She is just an amazing woman spending her time, energy and even her money to bring attention for the good cause as if you read her messages properly, NOT only in Africa. A UN special envoy is not an African Envoy. Go back to your books and get to kow the movie she directed was based on what happened in Bosnia not Africa.
    She can not be anywhere at one particular moment after all she is a human being just like you and me. Stop pointing fingers on her instead of asking yourself what have you done for others so far!!!! When she is somewhere of course, she brings attention of the same problem related other places too in the World – Enough of shallow minded people at 21st century!!
