Colonel Light Gardens, Australia - October 13, 2017 /PressCable/ —

Ludo Aequitas, a not for profit organization – with its key platform the promotion of mental health and equality through sport was created to resolve the exact type of conflict which has now erupted between President Trump and the athletes of its national sports.

The anthem, flag, standing with hand over heart are symbols, gestures, that the United States uses, more than most, as symbols of respect, honour and a commitment to its values as a country and a society. There is also the matter of its constitution and the rights to free speech. The problem arises when different individuals attach different meanings to such symbols, depending on their life experiences and politics.

In recent times, sport has been asked and involved itself with a number of bio-psycho-socio-cultural issues. These include motor neurone disease, breast cancer, concussion encephalopathy, mental health, domestic violence and poverty with the aim of promoting awareness, education and change in attitudes and behaviour.

Now it is race relations and law enforcement.

Whether to kneel or to stand? Link arms or not? What are the values being debated?

Ludo Aequitas has a compromise: through the adoption of its “Ludo Creed” – a set of sporting and human values; and “Do The Ludo” – a sporting behaviour that offers an alternative to either standing or kneeling. A neutral venue for all.

Ludo Creed – is the central cognitive component to the Ludo Aequitas initiative. “We, the players representing our chosen sport, do solemnly swear to uphold the Ludo values of equality, respect, honour and fair play at all times, and denounce vilification based on Race, Colour, Sex, Age, Gender, Religion, Disability or Social Status.”

Do The Ludo – is the central behavioural component of the Ludo Aequitas initiative. It is designed to symbolise strength and defiance, pride and compassion. It can be done individually, with the right arm in the air with a clenched fist, and the left arm folded across the heart (or vice versa). Others can join in by placing their left or right arm around the shoulder of the person next to them, and their other arm again folded across the heart. In this way a “LudoLink” chain can be established either realistically or virtually.

President Trump, sports people and athletes, the fans, the owners, are all invited to “Do The Ludo” as a show of unity and mutual respect for their position.

Love and hot sauce: New Orleans revives 1894 Tabasco opera

Jan 23, 2018

NEW ORLEANS — Love, hate and hot sauce are themes of a 19th century comic opera being produced this week as a kickoff to New Orleans' 300th anniversary. It's also the 150th anniversary for Tabasco sauce and the New Orleans Opera's 75th. "Tabasco: a Burlesque Opera" had been stuck in an attic for more than a century when conductor Paul Mauffray found a program from its 1894 tour in archives for the opera company and its predecessors. "At first I thought it couldn't be Tabasco — that Tabasco hadn't been around that long," Mauffray said. But an official history of...

Davos diplomacy scene not exactly a natural fit for Trump

Jan 23, 2018

WASHINGTON — One question looms as President Donald Trump packs his bags for Switzerland: How will the Diet Coke-loving nationalist fit in with the Champagne-sipping globalists he'll encounter at the World Economic Forum in Davos? American presidents tend to shun the Davos diplomacy scene, a glitzy annual gathering at a Swiss Alpine resort that for nearly 50 years has drawn politicians, CEOs and celebrities to ponder public policy and global cooperation. Sitting presidents typically pass on the event, as known for its flashy parties and celebrity sightings as its policy powwows and international deal-making. Instead, Trump will be the star...
