Global for mestory ticker


[Story Ticker] December 21st: update

Global for me has a rather gloomy ticker board at the moment, and all at Christmas time! Sorry, but with the worsening climate and the Copenhagen Summit’s failure to reach any conclusion – we’re highlighting that our correspondents are  able to provide coverage and analysis from all over the world and give us the low-down on what is going on and might be done next. Here is our suggestion. You can suggest your story ideas here today.

Meanwhile amidst the recession- even the British Royal Family is having a difficult time too. Escalating costs mean that they are set to clash with the government about finances in the near future. At Global for me –  we have the royal and constitutional experts to explain the problems, potential solutions and the likelihood of all possible outcomes. Can you image a Britain with out the Royal Family? Check our our suggested story here.

What ever story you are looking for more on, Global for me is here for you. So find out more of what we’re all about and see if you can get your story idea to gather enough buzz to gain pledges and get comissioned!

Pop-star Pope

[Story Ticker] November 13 update

On 30th November, Pope Benedict XVI  is due to release an album called ‘Alma Mater’ in time for the Christmas rush, the record is to be released by Geffen, a label with a history of heavy rock bands and hellraisers such as Guns n Roses and Nirvana.

It will include the Pope singing a Marian prayer and speaking Lauretan Litanies in different languages, including Italian, Portuguese, French and German. There will be eight tracks, each accompanied by modern classical music. Part of the proceeds will go towards providing musical education for underprivileged children across the world. The potential audience tapped by this product is a large one, as about one-sixth of the world’s population (1.2 billion people) is Roman Catholic.

Do you want to know how this came about? Is it a good idea? If you want one of our Vatican correspondents to chase any kind of story about the goings on at the papal palace –  suggest your story idea today! Or check out this story page.
