Donald Trump University?

When I first heard of the Donald Trump “University” I thought it was a really cool way of giving back to the community – a social enterprise to help teach success, and what it means to be entrepreneurial in life, at work, at home and in business.

However the site isn’t really a University – rather its a collection of audio, video, multimedia and e-books that you’ve probably seen a lot of on the Internet from various factions.

I don’t live in the States so I’m not actually sure if the Trump University actually exists or not and I’m surprised to hear that Trump didn’t want to get involved in education.

Perhaps, like the old Chinese kung-fu masters, he’s doesn’t want to revealing everything in fear that a better student may overthrow him – which I can understand and totally respect.

There’s a lot of funny copy on the page, including “I invite you to do business with me.” — hmm, I wonder how open that statement is…

Anyway – check out the Trump e-University, maybe you’ll pay the $39.95 for the entire collection – if you’ve already bought the set and want to write a review, please contact me I’ll be delighted to post a link to it.

The Live 8 event was, in my opinion, a fantastic world-encompassing I watched it on the BBC digital service, allowing me to track back and forth from the events in London, Philadelphia and other events at a press of a button.

I really liked the Philadelphia event, I was very surprised to find out that Def Leppard was still around and I found the Linkin Park bit superb! I also enjoyed flicking over to the African event at the Eden Project it was very lively and exciting.

The London event was certainly the place to be for the many revellers, although I do have reservations about certain performers.

For example, Jimmy Carr why the hell was he there? His cynical, Its all about me deadpan face was not necessary at this event.

I ended up yelling at the TV this is a serious event and your trying to make light of it, what the hell is wrong with you?! Which was strange, because I wasnt even drunk. Come to think of it, I dont even drink.

Why was Jimmy Carr and Peter Kay there? This was meant to be a serious event and they’re making light of it and trying to milk it for their own comedy routine!

Another performer I didnt like was Peter Kay sure hes funny but whats he doing there? His introduction of The Who as The Spice Girls was unfunny, patronising and down right rude
