Great find carolhathaway! This is terrific. I can't believe I'm going on vacation on the 11th .... otherwise I would get myself to the National Press Club (well at least outside) to possibly catch a glimpse of George. Damn.

Great find, Donnamarie.

Looks like this journalist has been doing some research too - within the same article is the story of Australian South Sudanese returning to S Sudan to 'fight' but who knows? Maybe there's a link with financiers, money laundering and the illegal arms and ivory trade there too.

We'll find out soon. Have a feeling this is HUGE........

The sound disappeared for me at about that time...
Also didn't have this required player on my tablet, tried to load it which didn't work. Tried the forst notebook, and after the sound disappeared tried the second one which didn't have the player as well - so gave up frustrated in the end and hope it will be screened somewhere else (youtube?).

Thought the press conference was well organized in its presentation. I didn't get to see all of it tho. Will watch later. But I thought George looked great. Actually like the way he looks with reading glasses. And I love the shorter hair cut. Nice tan too! Not too shabby George!

I think he looks good and expresses his opinions very effectively. Unfortunately the U.S. seems to be stuck into its crazy election circus right now, and I don't think his appeals would make much noises around the globe.

Sorry, DoubleZoe, but I think there's something wrong with your computer (or maybe it's your eyes?? Very Happy  I hope you don't need glasses!) I think George looked better than he has in a long time - well rested, relaxed and just plain gorgeous. He definitely looks much better with the fuzz gone.

I thought the presentation was really well done. It was brief and to the point. The way they scripted the first part of the presentation was interesting and well organized. I liked the fact that they brought in a diverse panel to explain the Sudanese situation, rather than relying on just the three standouts (George, John and Don) to carry the presentation. It gave the conference a bit more gravitas. I was glad to see they got a good media turnout and that the reporters asking questions seemed well informed. Maybe this time they'll get enough support to start making a change. George spoke about shaming the financial institutions. Maybe he did a little shaming of the media as well and this time maybe they'll give this issue a little more screen time.

 Actually Im a short sighted unfortunately so yeah Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy really need those glasses.
Ok its probably me cause I've not been really following him recently and Im quite into other actors as well Very Happy

Well I dont support the sruffy look and the beard either but still have a feeling that he is aging quite fast, or (I know I know) its just my eyes Very Happy

Sadly didnt have the time to watch the whole presentation but will at the weekend. 
And thanks Liz.

Agree with Lizzy, this is perhaps his best-looking photo in a long time! George looks refreshed and relaxed, maybe, due to a year away from shooting movies. Looks like he's ready to get back in the set next month. Plus, the video is great. Very Happy

What does it mean?



I think it means that he "presumes" that this initiative will be very well supported....he sees little "push back"/consternation from the "the powers that be", banks etc.....I see a very different scenario .....

I see a lot of silence....from the people he would least expect....The Chinese have a saying  "Listen FOR the SILENCE".....

In other words, they will say nothing...As with all life, you never really know who you are talking to.....And when it comes to money, nobody likes their lolly licked......

I stand to be corrected but I saw nothing of this press conference on Mr Sky.....There again news hates a Good Story.....

Having said that, it falls into the category of "Why didn't someone do this before now!"......Exactly.....

I'm having a bad day....glass half empty, doesn't happen to me often....not since someone took George Clooney away.....Just like losing your favourite scarf, one minute it was hugging your neck soft and warm...and the next gone.....

I should never read those  threads.....they hurt too much, too often...

PAN- No real surprise. On the news this morning I heard that President Kiir was denying all the charges. What I find disturbing is that the journalists who met with President Obama are being detained and apparently the US government is not doing anything about it. (Sidebar in the second article you posted.) Of course, it is possible they're acting behind the scenes but it doesn't sound like it.

Interesting that they're going to arrest 100 or so 'informants'. Will that include the President, Vice President and Army colonels children and wives who all have Facebook and Instagram accounts!!?

I'd would have liked to be a fly on the wall of the President's office at the meeting yesterday.........
