UNITED NATIONS Authentic Paul Byron Jersey , Oct. 23 (Xinhua) -- To mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of the United Nations, the world body held a commemorative concert featuring Lang Lang, a renowned Chinese pianist, in the United Nations General Assembly Hall on Friday.
Asian pop songs, Western classical scores and gospel music filled the General Assembly Hall as the UN celebrated its birth seven decades ago.
The concert was organized by the United Nations Department of Public Information in collaboration with South Korea's permanent mission to the UN and the Korean Broadcasting System (KBS).
Lang, United Nations messenger of peace, performed with South Korean artists, while five children from different countries expressed their wishes for the world in both their mother tongues and English.
The Chinese pianist, who has been a goodwill ambassador of the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF) for over 10 years, was selected by the UN chief as a United Nations messenger of peace in 2013 with a focus on a key UN priority: to get into classrooms 57 million children around the world who are currently not receiving an education.
On Saturday, the United Nations Day will be observed, which marks the anniversary of the entry into force of the Charter of the United Nations in 1945, which symbolized the birth of the UN.
"The United Nations works for the entire human family of 7 billion people, and cares for the Earth, our one and only home," UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in his message to mark the UN Day.
"As we shine a light on this milestone anniversary, let us reaffirm our commitment to a better and brighter future for all," he added.
As part of the UN Day celebration and the "Turn the World UN Blue" campaign, the United Nations General Assembly Hall and Secretariat Building will be awash in blue, the official color of the UN, on Friday and Saturday.
Worldwide, some 300 sites around the globe will be lit in "UN blue" beginning on Friday, in the campaign to unite global citizens and promote the message of peace, development and human rights.
The United Nations Day, marked annually on Oct. 24, is dedicated to the UN's global efforts and achievements since its founding on this date in 1945.
Dissect personality by their choice of coffee
Grandmother didn't just like her coffee, and it wouldn't really do her justice to say she loved her coffee. Grandmother was to coffee what a sommelier is to wine. She knew the intricacies of coffee, the different tastes and even the textures. And only the best would do for her. No instant coffee, or coffee bought at the grocery store. She had to have fresh coffee, from a respectable coffee shop. "The morning cup of coffee sets the tone for the whole day," she used to say.
I used to go to Grandmother's every Sunday morning. Her routine was always the same. She would kiss me once on each cheek, hang up my coat and lead me into the kitchen, slice a piece of banana bread right out of the oven (sometimes cranberry)? and pour a cup of freshly brewed coffee.
"Alexa," she said to me one day. "Did you know that every person's personality is like a flavor of coffee?"
"Really?" I said, amused at how Grandmotherrelished her coffee so much that she related everything to it.
"Ye" she said. "You, my dear, are French vanilla. You are sweet, almost sickeningly so at times to the discerning coffee drinker." I slightly recoiled at Grandmother's assessment of me. You expect your grandmother to call you sweet, but never sickeningly sweet.
"Your father is espresso," she continued. "He comes on strong. There are many people who don't like him, but others can't live without that high feeling that he gives them. He has an addictive personality that many people can't let go of."
"Let me gues Grandmother. You're hazelnut."
"Hazelnut? Why on earth would you say that?"
"Because I find your coffee talk a bit nutty."
I smiled at Grandmother, but I could tell she was not amused. "Alexa dear, I am trying to teach you a lesson about life here. I do not need you poking fun at me."
A lesson about life? Is she kidding? "Grandmother, you can't dissect a person's personality by comparing them to a cup of coffee. People are more complex than that. Everyone has nuance personality quirk things that make them different. You just can't go around saying, 'She's a dark roast, he's an instant,the sand maker worker is a mocha almond.'"
Grandmother looked at me, almost a blank, dull stare. "Then you just don't understand coffee," she snapped, clearing my plate and coffee cup from the table. "I guess not," I sighed, exasperated at my hazelnut grandmother.
