Ofsted: Trojan Horse schools still failing to promote British values

Schools at the centre of the Trojan Horse scandal are still promoting an “unbalanced curriculum” and segregating boys and girls in the classroom, according to Ofsted.

The education watchdog said “very little action” had been taken to address major failings at five Birmingham schools suspected of being subjected to an alleged takeover plot by hard-line Muslims.


My Next Life

James' Funnies

MY NEXT LIFE by George Carlin

I want to live my next life backwards: You start out dead and get that out of the way.

Then you wake up in a nursing home feeling better every day. Then you get kicked out for being too healthy. Enjoy your retirement and collect your pension.

Then when you start work, you get a gold watch on your first day. You work 40 years until you’re too young to work.

You get ready for High School: drink alcohol, party, and you’re generally promiscuous.

Then you go to primary school, you become a kid, you play, and you have no responsibilities. Then you become a baby, and then… You spend your last 9 months floating peacefully inSpa-like conditions – Central heating, room service on tap, and then… You finish off as an orgasm.

I rest my case.

Wake Up!!! It’s time for Kick-off!

Yes!! It’s time when people across the world catch a fever which hits once every 4 years and is very very infectious and has tell-tale symptoms of hoarse throats, sleep deprivation leading to bleary eyes and emotional highs and downs which can put the best of roller-coasters to shame! 🙂

Yes, unless you are a visitor from Mars, you must be aware I am talking about the FIFA World Cup, which starts in a few hours in Brazil. Now, if you are not familiar with India, you might be wondering why an Indian is so excited about Football?? Google tells me that India’s ranking in 2014 is an envy-inducing 154!! 😛

But, that is merely a piece of statistic, which tells nothing about the passion many Indians have for the game, or the cult-like following the Messis, Neymars and the Cristiano Ronaldos of the world have here. Indians make up…

The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love
O, the red rose is a falcon
And the white rose is a dove

But I send you a cream-white rosebud
With a flush on its petal tips
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on the lips

I Couldn`t Believe how these Photos were Made.

Long Exposure Photos Illuminated with Glow Sticks

With just a few glow sticks and a long exposure photo technique, these waterfalls and landscapes become something truly special. The glowing light sticks are never broken and are picked up when the photo has been taken, so there is no harm to the environment. All that we are left with are these breathtaking, colorful pictures. It helps us remember how beautiful even the simplest things can be, with just a little twist.


Why Does The Lady Cry?

When I went to lunch today, I noticed an old lady sitting on a park bench sobbing her eyes out.

I stopped and asked her what was wrong and she said, “I have a 22 year old husband at home. He makes love to me every morning and then gets up and makes me pancakes, sausage, fresh fruit and freshly ground coffee.”

I said, “Well, then why are you crying?”

She said, “He makes me homemade soup for lunch and my favorite brownies and then makes love to me for half the afternoon”.

I said, “Well, why are you crying?”

She said, “For dinner he makes me a gourmet meal with wine and my favorite dessert and then makes love to me until 2:00 a.m.

I said, “Well, why in the world would you be crying?”

She said, “I can’t remember where I live!”
