The SIA Formula 1 Grand Prix is set to start in Singapore next week and organisers have again invited 9 religious leaders to pray for and bless the track before the event.

A ceremony was held at the track yesterday (Sept 10) where the religious leaders prayed for good weather and the safety of all those involved in the race including drivers, teams, officials and spectators.

The nine different faith groups that were represented were Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Sikhism, Judaism, Jainism, Zoroastrianism and the Bahai faith.

Organisers explained that they didn't want to leave anything to chance and that's why they continued the tradition of bringing in religious leaders to bless the track and pray.

Look what Ive got!

Black, gay and short, Locke hardly fit the stereotype of the strapping Rhodes scholar...

Joellen ElBashir is standing, smiling, in front of filing cabinets with two long, low drawers agape. On a counter, she has laid out her finds: typewritten documents and a stained brown paper bag bearing a few faint lines of handwriting. Its not the first time ElBashir, curator of Howard Universitys Moorland-Spingarn Research Center, has seen the bag. But every time she sees it, shes struck.

If Alain Locke had known, he ...

The container that held Lockes ashes for almost 60 years. It was kept in a paper bag. (Astrid Riecken/For The Washington Post)

ElBashir chuckles and shakes her head, but its clear what she means: If Locke had known his cremated remains had been inside that grubby paper bag, hed be rolling in his grave.

He will occasionally edit pages on other religions, such as Islam or Bahai, or general articles on Christianity.

When he was a student at Brigham Young University three years ago, Anthony Willey came across a Wikipedia page on Mormons. What he read filled him with frustration.

The article focused on polygamy, which seemed odd since Mormons officially outlawed the practice in 1890. It didnt say what Mormons believe or what made them unique, Willey said. I had the thought, Whos editing this stuff? and that got me hooked.

Since editing that page and adding 50 percent to the content, Willey has made more than 8,000 edits to the editable online encyclopedia, mostly on articles related to Mormonism. His top edited pages include entries on Joseph Smith, Mormons, Mormonism, and Black people and Mormonism.

My old hosting company, LunarPages, turned out to be a disaster. So far, HostGator has been wonderful and I'm ready to recommend its services.
