Video of World Harmony Run ceremony in Dublin
- There was a very nice item on an Irish children's news programme about
the welcoming ceremony for the World Harmony Run in Dublin:
(Bear in mind that link will only be ok till Tuesday, when they
replace it with the news program for that day)
The piece about the Run begins exactly 2 minutes into the program, so
you can just skip there. (The preceding piece ranks among the most
uninspiring things ive seen in my short life)
ps if anyone can figure out how to download this, id be most grateful.
It has me rather stumped, ill admit.
- Beautiful footage Shane! I love the balloons.
Kudos to the Irish centers and the European leg of the World Harmony
PS I'm trying not to think about my computer keryboard as I type
- Actually I have a very nice story about the balloons.
I didn't see it (and you cant see it in the video) but Ambarish and
Shardul both say they saw one solitary balloon detach itself from the
rest and go on its own merry way.
Last year a mother brought her sons to a lunchtime meditation class I
was giving. I must have mentioned somewhere along the line that I was
a maths tutor, because she got in touch with me a few months later
wondering could I give lessons to one of her sons.
Recently her brother developed cancer at the very young age of 35, and
he was basically told he had a couple of weeks to live. However the
doctors obviously didn't reckon with his battling qualities. He asked
through her sister could I teach him to meditate to cope with the
physical and mental strains of what he is going through. He's still
not out of the woods yet, but he might be over the worst. Certainly I
am getting much more inspiration from him when I visit than he is
getting from me.
In the afternoon, a few hours after the WHR ceremony, he saw a
solitary red balloon floating outside his hospital window, which
somehow really cheered him up.
- Hello Shane,
Well done. This is a nice news piece.
I downloaded this news segment onto a DVD and will give it to you in
London on the 19th.
Meanwhile, if you wish to try to download it you can do the following:
Install 'Real Player' (again) on your computer. This time, be sure to
select a choice that says something like:
Enable button for downloading web videos (or some such thing).
Then when the Real Player screen appears, it will have the logo of
Real Player in the lower right corner. When you click on that, a
library appears and the video you are watching is listed.
Then the tricky thing is that you have to upgrade your free
"membership" to a paid one in order to download and record videos.
However, you will be offered a 14 day trial membership for which you
have to give a credit card. The card is not charged but if you forget
to cancel, your card will then be charged.
The first step is to select the disc type - CD or DVD.
The second step is to select clip from your library list of downloads
and add it to the "right column" which is your burn list.
The third step is to burn the DVD.
It is really easy - I did it in the space of about ten minutes after
reading your post. My advantage was that my brother had removed Real
Player from my computer after giving me a lecture about having too
many downloaded programs and how they will mess things up on the
computer. Since I wished to see the news piece you gave the link to,
I had to re-download Real Player and noticed this 'download web
videos' choice only because of your question. Until I told you that, I
bet you were impressed that I figured it out!
I would post it to you but I think I will arrive in London before it
would arrive in Ireland. Also, I would not be surprised if you were
soon to be on your way to London to help with the concert.
P.S. You still do not like apostrophes.
