  • BIOGRAPHY TEDDY AFRO

    Raised by musical parents, it was apparent at an early age that  Tewodros Kassahun , (now know as Teddy Afro) had a deep love of music. Over the past ten years, Teddy has emerged as the number one voice in Ethiopia, breaking records for album sales and show attendance.  He is known far and wide, inside and out of Ethiopia as the rising star of East Africa.

    The 2001 debut release of “Abugida”, was a landmark recording that established Teddy as a musical power to be reckoned with.  “Abugida” is a word that means “beginning”, in the language of Ge’ez (the predecessor to the modern spoken language of Amharic) and this recording is aptly named as it marks his entrance on the national stage.

    Using reggae rhythms combined with the traditional sounds of Ethiopian music, the songs are sung exclusively in the national language of Ethiopia, Amharic. Influenced by Ethiopian Maestro Tilahun Gessesse and international reggae superstar Bob Marley, Teddy combines the musicianship and message of his mentors. Singing of freedom from tyranny and self-emancipation on his debut release, he defined his voice as a songwriter as well as a singer. Using the keyboard as his primary vehicle for songwriting, he has written both hooks and melodies that have become a mainstay in Ethiopian pop culture.

  • Britain Media’s reacted Against Channel 4's New Naked Dating Show


    From Big Brother to Sex Box, the world of TV is always looking for new lows. And this week Channel 4 succeeded. Thousands of viewers complained on Twitter and media guardians branded Naked Attraction — an uncensored nude dating show — the ‘worst programme ever shown on TV’. Broadcasting watchdog Ofcom has already received 24 complaints about nudity. A spokesman for MediaWatch UK said: ‘This has to be the worst programme ever shown on television, there is nothing to recommend it.’

    Norman Wells, of the Family Education Trust, accused Channel 4 of ‘grossly irresponsible broadcasting’ and viewers labelled it ‘creepy’ and a ‘new low for British TV’. A spokesman for Channel 4 said last night: ‘This is a light-hearted and appropriately scheduled series which aims to demystify the rules of sexual attraction for the [dating app] Tinder generation.

    Sadly, we will never know what Cilla Black would have made of it. But there’s really no avoiding the dispiriting conclusion that Channel 4’s latest reality show Naked Attraction, a nude and heavily sexualised version of Blind Date, the Saturday tea-time institution that dear old Cilla hosted for nearly 18 years, marks a spectacular new low for British television. Of course, the bar could hardly be lower than it already is. Already this year we have been subjected to ITV2’s Love Island, in which one couple copulated in broad daylight while other contestants commented on their love-making technique. But this is worse. From every angle, but especially the one that allows participants to assess the sexual organs of their six would-be dates, Naked Attraction is utterly ghastly, and depressingly degrading.

  • Global Firepower Rank

    The finalized  ranking relies on over 50 factors to determine a given nation's Power Index ("PwrIndx") score. This allows smaller, though more technologically-advanced, nations to compete with larger, lesser-developed ones. Modifiers in the form of bonuses and penalties are added to refine the list. Some things to observe in regards to the finalized ranking:

    • Ranking does not simply rely on the total number of weapons available to any one country but rather focuses on weapon diversity within the number totals to provide a better balance of firepower available (i.e. fielding 100 minesweepers does not equal the strategic and tactical value of fielding 10 aircraft carriers).
    • Nuclear stockpiles are NOT taken into account but recognized / suspected nuclear powers receive a bonus.
    • Geographical factors, logistical flexibility, natural resources and local industry influence the final ranking.
    • Available manpower is a key consideration; nations with large populations tend to rank higher.
    • Land-locked nations are NOT penalized for lack of a navy; naval powers ARE penalized for lack of diversity in available assets.
    • NATO allies receive a slight bonus due to the theoretical sharing of resources.
    • Current political / military leadership is NOT taken into account.

    As of 4/1/2016 there are a total of (126) countries included in the GFP database.
