Blog Action Day 2013

16th October 2013

Simon Grundy in the morning                                                                              

Here’s what you missed........

Well we’re halfway through our working week and what a miserable day outside!

If the weather is causing you to feel ill then according to a study out today you should take full advantage of it. Dr Charles, a leading microbiologist has conducted research that suggests as soon as we start feeling a little under the weather we should stay off work and phone in sick. He further warned that coming into work at the start of feeling ill can wreak havoc around the office as you are at your most contagious at the start of an illness. I wonder how many managers will accept the excuse of  “Well I’m actually feeling ok, but I don’t think I’ll be well tomorrow. It might be best if I just stay at home today.....” Yes, your P45 will be in the post.

Today is Blog Action Day, the day when bloggers of the world unite to blog about the same topic in order to spark a global discussion. Seeing as I’m new to the blogging community, I thought I’d jump on the back of this bandwagon and give it a go. The theme for your blog should be based on Human Rights. My first thought was to discuss how my own human rights are being abused by Simon, however that’s a topic of discussion with HR. Considering I blog about a radio breakfast show I thought I’d try and somehow relate human rights to music, so here goes.....

Between 1986 – 1998, Human Rights Concerts toured the globe to raise funds for Amnesty International, a charity known for raising awareness to human rights abuses and violations of international law. Artists such as Sting, Bruce Springsteen, U2, Radiohead, and Led Zeppelin took to the stage in countries such as Chile, America and Paris to perform for the cause.  On 5th November this year, Amnesty International will be releasing a six disc DVD and two disc CD featuring the shows that these artists and many more performed at.

Not only have artists publicly shown their support for Human rights by performing for well known charities, but some have also wrote music outlining important human rights issues. One of which is the most recent track ‘Same Love’ from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. The song addresses the issue of same sex relationships and equal marriage. Macklemore has said the reason he wanted to write the song was because he feels passionate about the issue and wanted to challenge society. The song has most definitely been an influential success as it won the 2013 Video Music Award for Best video with a social message.

In the words of Macklemore; It’s Human Rights for everybody, there is no difference.

Spread the word.......Blog Action Day 2013. And while you’re at it, spread the word that there’s only a few hours left to bid to have a Christmas lunch with me and Simon!!!!

Over and out
