  • 1. Hazar Samerinfo@alkoununiverse.comwww.alkoununiverse.comThe Responsibilityof ToleranceThe responsibility of tolerance lies with those who have the widervision. George EliotIn this universe there are more than 193 countries with different cul-tures,traditions and religions.The question is how we can create peace from this cultural variationinstead of a conflict?Perhaps the easiest way to do this that we dont actually think about butthat has a really close relation with cultural conflict is the role of celebri-ties.Though there are moral and ideological differences between peopleall over the world, when it comes to a famous international celebrity youcan observe that people from all over the world follow his or her newswithout stopping to think that maybe their ideology doesnt allow themto like him or her.Celebrities are playing a really important role in bringing people from allover the world together. The production of international films and TVprograms made it easier for people to know each other better and tochange their false perceptions about a certain culture.One example nowadays is Arabic TV serials. Although political conflictsare taking place in the most of the Arabic countries, when it comes to amovie or a TV program you will find all Arab citizens are watching thesame TV shows without thinking of the conflicts that are taking place inall over the Arab world. Turkish, Mexican and Malaysian serials foundsuccess in the Arab world. In Europe most people watch and followAmerican programs.In conclusion, people are able to have a wider vision to the world in aneasy way and people can be tolerant when it comes to humanity. Maybewe all have diverse opinions on politics, culture and religion so we canbe open to all cultures in this world.Be open, tolerant, live your life and be happy because it shorter thanyou may think. Spend your life with happiness, openness and success anddont ever try to be intolerant.I will use this opportunity to say congratulations to the beautiful Germanbrides in this Issue that celebrated their weddings in Germany!2 3

The chemistry wasso good and so real. She taught me dance moves.She was a sweet teacher.14 15 8.

A CinematichenomenonCharles Spencer Chaplin was born in London,England, on April 16th 1889. His father wasa versatile vocalist and actor; and his mother,known under the stage name of Lily Harley, wasan attractive actress and singer, who gained areputation for her work in the light opera field.Charlie was thrown on his own resources beforehe reached the age of ten as the early death of hisfather and the subsequent illness of his mothermade it necessary for Charlie and his brother,Sydney, to fend for themselves.Having inherited natural talents from theirparents, the youngsters took to the stage as thebest opportunity for a career. Charlie made hisprofessional debut as a member of a juvenilegroup called The Eight Lancashire Lads andrapidly won popular favour as an outstanding tapdancer.When he was about twelve, he got his first chanceto act in a legitimate stage show, and appearedas Billy the page boy, in support of WilliamGillette in Sherlock Holmes.
