TheStar.com – artsentertainment – Swedish taxman goes after ABBA…Toronto Star
Swedish tax officials said they were now demanding the 61-year-old musician pay an additional around 16 million crowns for royalties paid in 2004 and 2005. “The factual circumstances regarding this are exactly the same (as in the previous case),” said Swedish tax office official Victor Palm. ABBA soared to worldwide fame after winning the Eurovision Song Contest in 1974. Ulvaeus and Andersson wrote most of the band's songs, which for a time were Sweden's biggest export, selling around 370 million records. After the band broke up in 1983, the two found new box office success with hit musicals such as “Chess” and “Mamma Mia!”. Copyright 1997-2006 Omniture, Inc.

Otherwise known as Rosemary Scallon the singer, come politician was catapulted to fame in 1970 when she won the Eurovision song contest singing All Kinds of Everything. “I`m nervous about how I`ll be received,” she admitted. “But now I`m back singing again and loving it.

Culture in Romania and BulgariaBBC News
I would prefer Azis to Western pop music being played here,” she adds. Flamboyant, cross-dressing male vocalist Azis is one of the most recognised faces in Bulgaria. A leading exponent of chalga, he represented his country alongside pop star Mariana Popova at this year’s Eurovision Song Contest. Western music has been widely embraced by Bulgarian artists and regularly dominates the country’s charts, alongside the likes of Justin Timberlake and Gwen Stefani.

Way out west | The Guardian | Guardian UnlimitedGuardian Unlimited
To some, this would be good news, and it certainly makes more work for eastern-European waiters and daffodil-pickers, but it gives the south-west the oldest population structure of all the regions in England. By 2014, it is projected that 41% of the its residents will be aged 50 or over, catastrophically inflating the price of sherry, hot water bottles and tongue. Niche nationalismThe British government has never passed a formal Act of Union to incorporate the Duchy of Cornwall into the nation, and so some people have decided to claim that it is not part of the UK and should therefore be granted the right to its own money, embassy and Eurovision entry. As further evidence of a distinctive culture, Cornish nationalists cite an indigenous language (although the last Cornish monoglot died in either 1777 or 1676) and a black and white flag. The main home rule party is called Mebyon Kernow (Sons of Cornwall). In the 2005 general election, across four seats, they received a total of 3,552 votes, 2,759 fewer than the Monster Raving Loonies, or roughly a quarter of the crowd at a Plymouth Argyle home game. Naturally, the small number of committed nationalists are entitled to their view, but many of the locals would be happier if they did not spray it all over English Heritage signs.

Minister calls on Israel to join NatoTelegraph.co.uk
Any such guarantee through Nato, however, would simply duplicate the existing bilateral defence pact between Israel and America which provides the same threat of protection by America. As a Middle East nation, Israel has ambitions nevertheless of being seen as a European country. Its national soccer team plays in the European zone for World Cup qualification and Israel has long been a member of the European broadcasting union that earns it a place in the annual Eurovision Song Contest.

All kinds of everything for a voteIrish Times
“Dana, you are so beautiful. My dad is just obsessed with you. Ever since the Eurovision. You are a pet,” a young woman screams, grabbing her to give her a kiss. Dana smiles and hands over a leaflet. “I am going to put her in a bottle and carry her round,” the MEP quips.

Call for Israel to become a EU and NATO memberEuropean Jewish Press
Historically, this meant that if one member of the alliance was attacked, the full might of NATO would come to its defence. Israeli membership of NATO would mean America would be obliged to protect the Jewish State were it attacked by Iran, whose leadership repeatedly calls for Israel to be wiped off the map. Despite being a Middle East nation, Israel’s national football team plays in the European zone for World Cup qualification and Israel has long been a member of the European broadcasting union that earns it a place in the annual Eurovision Song Contest.
