Mandate Human Rights Education in Schools

.
Youth for Human Rights International, UK branch, gathers signatures on a petition for the mandating of human rights education in schools across London

What Are Human Rights? Find out at youthforhumanrights.org

London: The UK arm of Youth for Human Rights International gathered signatures in London recently for a petition to mandate human rights education in schools in London.

The number of London Boroughs reporting human rights abuses in 2008 was 26 out of 32. The main plague in our capital city today is child and woman trafficking. This is a situation that we seem to think happens elsewhere. But if we take a closer look in is on our own doorstep.

This is the reason a team of human rights advocates set out to gather signatures on a petition for the mandating of human rights education in schools across London. They set up in Westminster where hundreds of passers-by stopped to find out more.

With education about these issues and how they relate to us, one will minimally know that they have rights. Then once they know what they are an individual will be able to use these within their groups so we start to see a difference in our schools, communities, cities and country.

Youth For Human Rights International, UK branch, has been conducting this campaign for the last few years, gathering support for what they see as the start point to actually making human rights a reality.

Volunteer and Muslim, Abdi, stated “It is vital we do this, making people aware of what their rights are and showing them where they can find out more is really good. The more signatures we have, we will use this pressure to make it mandatory that every human being knows what human rights are across London.”

L. Ron Hubbard's Guinness World Record - Most audio books for one author

This is L. Ron Hubbbard's third Guinness World Record!

A collection of audiobooks from L. Ron Hubbard's pulp fiction stories

London, UK—With 185 audio books, L. Ron Hubbard has just garnered his 3rd world record as confirmed by Guinness World Records, it was announced last month at the London International Book Fair. The official statement reads, “Most audio books for one author is L. Ron Hubbard with 185 published audio books as of 21st April 2009.”

“Past Guinness world records issued include ‘Most translated author,’ and the world's ‘Most published author,’” stated Gunhild Jacobs, Executive Director for Trade Operations Author Services, Inc., the literary agency that handles the combined works of Hubbard, from her offices in Hollywood upon receiving the news. She also pointed out that the New York Times bestselling novelised version of Hubbard’s screen play Ai Pedrito! written by Kevin J. Anderson, held the record from Guinness as the largest book signing in history, until the New York Times bestselling version of Hubbard’s A Very Strange Trip, novelised by Dave Wolverton, beat this record a year later.

“We have had excellent success with our new line of audiobooks,” Jacobs continued. “With the attention to detail that we put into their production, our audiobooks have already been recognised by Publishers Weekly, AudioFile Magazine, School Library Journal and Booklist for their superb quality. Plus, two of our audiobooks are up for Audie Awards. We feel that we are contributing to a reading renaissance with these stories.”

In a recent published review of the just-released Orders is Orders audiobook, Publishers Weekly stated, “Demonstrating his unique ability to relate even the most complicated story with a keen eye for detail and realism, Hubbard’s stunning writing ability and creative imagination set him apart as one of the greatest literary figures of the 20th century.”

To help listeners understand how these audiobooks were created and listening quality achieved, a special video presentation entitled, The Making of a Golden Age Audiobook, has been created and can be seen at: http://www.goldenagestories.com/html/podcasts.php#6.
