News of the MuseJerusalem Post
Some 15 years have passed by since Aharon, who recently released the album Kshetavo Tireh (Come and See), left the group to carve out a solo career. She’s now decided to perform with her former bandmates and offer nostalgic fans a look back at an earlier stage of her career. One of the most successful Israeli pop groups of the Seventies and Eighties, Hakol Over Habibi won the Kdam-Eurovision song contest with “Halaila” in 1981, then went on to place seventh at that year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Aharon’s new tour will feature songs from her solo career, as well as hits she and Hakol Over Habibi produced together. The first concert is set for November 10 in Herzliya.

The focus will now be on youth events, including an idea suggested by the UK, known as United Schools of Europe, which would link schools across the EU via the web. Mr Skrzypczak made the word “Together” using different typefaces and different accents used in European languages. The sub-line “Since 1957” refers to the signing of the Treaty of Rome in that year.

“This logo gives a graphic interpretation to the voice of all Europeans, especially the new generations,” says the competition website.

The Entertainment Software Association has also tried to reach across the gender divide with tougher enforcement of exhibitor rules for the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles in May. The association threatened $5,000 fines for the appearance in exhibition booths of bikini-clad women, representing female characters in games. In Germany, where game sales have risen less than 1 percent in the past six months, to 469 million euros, or $602 million, organizers of a game convention in Leipzig struck alliances with a magazine for teenage girls and a popular television show, “The Dome,” to produce a rock concert featuring female German pop stars and Lordi, the ghoulish heavy-metal winner of the Eurovision Song Contest. “In Germany, we're very traditional, and it's probably why the girls get the dolls and the boys get the Game Boys,” said Olaf Wolters, managing director of BIU, the German interactive game association. Convention organizers teamed up with the University of Leipzig to develop a family section with areas devoted to video games about singing stars, horses or “My Animal Hospital. ”

Game developers are loath to create what they call “pink games” for girls and women. But they're aware that female players tend to scorn games of wanton destruction, preferring simulation games, which allow them to create worlds where the game play is more important than winning, or counting cadavers.

TIME PASSESIrish Times
In keeping with its early 20th-century setting, Hou assembles it in the style of a silent movie with inter-titles for the dialogue, although we hear the courtesan when she sings. The weakest segment is the over-extended opening story, in which much of what happens is inconsequential. It is further undermined by the repetitive use of The Platters singing Smoke Gets in Your Eyes and the dreary Eurovision-esque Rain and Tears performed by Demis Roussos when he was a member of Aphrodite’s Child. All three vignettes are strikingly lit in precise visuals compositions, and the two lead actors impressively catch the disparate personalities they play. However, the film proves as fragmentary as Hou advised, and it is altogether less substantial and emotionally involving than his finest film, the riveting, politically charged 1989 drama, A City of Sadness.

Expat’s body held in Ichilov HospitalJerusalem Post
Two of his children, aged 18 and 25, and possibly a third, live in his native Netherlands. The third mother of his children, Limor Cohen, lives in Tel Aviv. She is the older sister of Dana International, the transsexual pop star who won the 1998 EuroVision contest. Geurts fell in love with Cohen in Holland and followed her back to Israel to help raise their daughter, Eliya. They later separated and Cohen’s mother raised Eliya, now 14. Geurts stayed in Israel. He had little to do with Eliya’s upbringing, or with that of any of his other children, friends say, though he had a tattoo of a Star of David in her honor.

‘Post’ story gets Dutch national buriedJerusalem Post
According to John Lubber, consul of the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Israel, Geurts’s seven brothers and sisters, who had refused to cooperate with attempts to locate his two children, sent word on Thursday that their father could be buried but that they would not foot the bill. Geurts’s friends in Israel speculated that family relations had deteriorated 15 years ago when Geurts abandoned his two Dutch children, now aged 18 and 25. Geurts ended up in Israel after meeting and having an illegitimate daughter with Limor Cohen, sister of Dana International, winner of the 1998 Eurovision contest. Cohen refused to comment. The State of Israel agreed to pay for the burial after Geurts’s family refused to do so. , a friend of Geurts’s, said that she was trying to raise the money needed for the deceased man’s headstone among friends.

Brano Liki?: sounds of the southPrague Post
Travel, television and radio appearances, music festivals and a host of follow-up albums followed, along with an always evolving sound. A concept album, then unheard of in the country, followed in 1976, with a city side and a rural side, recounting a love story between two lovers from different worlds. Investing in a studio in 1978 proved a wise (and characteristically well-planned) move, followed by steady acclaim, a contract for producing music for the 1984 Sarejevo Olympics and, after the fall of the Soviet bloc, a win in 1992 at the Eurovision song contest, Europe’s best-known pop awards. In the meantime, Likić formed BLAP, or Brano Liki? Audio Productions and, like many Sarajevans during the Bosnian War, moved his life abroad while trying to keep a foot in his homeland. “Every artist must be connected with the economy,” Likić says. “I’ve been in the marketing business for 30 years.
