The Un As A Toothless Bull Dog Politics Essay The League of Nations was the originator to the United Nations. It represented a major attempt by the great powers after the First World War in the year (1914-1918) to institutionalize a system of collective security, and its founded covenant was formulated a part of the treaty of Versailles in the year 1919. The first meeting was held in Geneva in 1920, with 42 states represented. Over the next 26 years, a total meeting was held in 1946, at the end of which the league was formally replaced by the United Nations which promptly moved its headquarters to New York, sparkly not only the status of the United States but also disillusionment with the performance of the League of Nations. It should be noticed that the League of Nations was never fully representative of the international community. The United States senate did not ratify the treaties and did not become a member of the league. South Africa and Liberia were the only African states. The Soviet Union was n ...
January 8th: Feast of Saints Lawrence Giustiniani and Lucian of Beauvais and Our Lady of Prompt Succor. In 1642, astronomer Galileo Galilei (77) died in Arcetri, Italy. In 1790, President George Washington delivered his first State of the Union address to Congress in New York. In 1815, the last major engagement of the War of 1812 came to an end as U.S. forces led by Maj. Gen. Andrew Jackson defeated the British in the Battle of New Orleans. (Given the slowness of communications at the time, the battle took place even though the United States and Britain had already signed a peace treaty.) In 1863, America's First Transcontinental Railroad had its beginnings as California Gov. Leland Stanford broke ground for the Central Pacific Railroad in Sacramento. (The transcontinental railroad was completed in Promontory, Utah, in May 1869.) In 1912, the African National Congress was founded in Bloemfontein, South Africa. In 1918, Woodrow Wilson issued his Fourteen Points. In 1935, rock-and-roll legend Elvis Presley ...

Africa Might Get Its First White Head of State Since Apartheid ZAMBIA rarely makes a stir at the annual UN General Assembly in New York. But when Michael Sata, the president, failed to turn up for his speech this year, other African delegations took note. The 77-year-old had collapsed in his hotel suite on September 25th and was treated by doctors sent by the American government. He had rarely appeared in public in recent months. When he addressed the Zambian parliament earlier in September he joked, “I am not dead,” and then left without delivering his speech. Under the Zambian constitution, if Mr Sata becomes unfit to work he will be replaced by his vice-president, Guy Scott, pending a new election to be held within 90 days. If so, Mr Scott would be the first white man to head an African state since the end of apartheid in South Africa two decades ago. What is more remarkable is that few Zambians seem concerned—a marked contrast from neighbouring South Africa or Zimbabwe, where politics is still r ...
Mary Helen Carlisle was born in South Africa but educated in England. She studied in Paris for five years at the Académie Julian under William-Adolphe Bouguereau, Tony Robert-Fleury, and Benjamin Jean-Joseph Constant. She traveled extensively throughout the United States and was active in California from about 1911 to 1915, after which she moved to New York. Carlisle was an internationally renowned artist who exhibited her works at the Royal Academy of Arts in London; the Paris Salon; Walker’s Art Gallery, London; Charles Cobb Gallery, Boston; Knoedler & Co., New York; and Steckel Gallery, Los Angeles. Using pastels, Carlisle deftly captured the play of light and shadow in her brightly colored impressionistic landscapes. Carlisle also drew portraits and painted ivory miniatures. * * * All images in this album will be ordered chronologically.

SA has reduced poverty - Minister Dlamini New York – South Africa’s Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini says South Africa has done well in reducing poverty and hunger over the past 20 years. The Minister said this as the United Nations meets in New York to discuss progress on the eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which lists eradicating extreme poverty and hunger as the top priority. Minister Dlamini has been crucial in assisting the South African delegation to report back on Goal 1 of the MDGs. Even though she acknowledged some challenges, Minister Dlamini ranked South Africa highly compared to other countries in meeting this particular goal. “Social protection has done a lot to improve the quality of life for our people, particularly girls and women. Most of the time when you talk about poverty, the first people that get affected are women,” she said on Monday. “When you talk about social protection, you talk about access to health services and access to school, so you reduc ...

In the Where is it addition toady I posted a photo of the old James Hunter Machine Company on Main Street. Here is a short history of the factory: James Hunter Machine Co. 1847-1983 The James Hunter Machine Company was the oldest and most important iron working industry in North Adams. The James Hunter Machine Co. was founded by James Hunter Sr. who came to the United States in the year 1833. Five years after first entering the states and living in Oakville, New York, Hunter came to North Adams and was engaged as a superintendent of the finishing department in the print works of Brown and Tyler in 1833.

In 1846, after eight years in with the Print Works, Hunter and his two partners McClelland and Magee, built the first cotton mill at Greylock for making cotton cloth.

Martin Murray's team try and tempt IBF middleweight boss Sam Soliman into October showdown News 'Substantial' offer made to bring Soliman to Monte Carlo RODNEY BERMAN has contacted IBF middleweight champion Sam Soliman’s camp about potentially matching him with highly-rated Martin Murray in Monte Carlo in October. He says he has made a “substantial offer” to the Australian, who beat Felix Sturm for the title last month. Murray fights Max Bursak for the WBC Silver belt in Monaco next weekend, but plans are already afoot to land a bigger prize later this year. “The middleweight division is very fluid right now and Martin is a big part of that,” said the Golden Gloves promoter in South Africa. “He’s proven himself in major fights and he has huge pulling power.” WBC champion Miguel Cotto is the hot man of the division after his dominant performance against Sergio Martinez last weekend, but Berman believes he will opt for more established names who would be big draws in New York or Las Vegas.

I'm leaving New York this morning to meet Martha Beck at Londolozi game reserve in South Africa, and as I prepare to board my flight, I'm struck with how far removed we've become from our wild nature. I've never been to Africa, and I'm already sensing that call of the wild towards something more primal that speaks of our true nature. What within me yearns to run with the lions? What within you wants to escape your cubicle or your suburb or your mask of perfection and be more of Who You Really Are? What within us all feels called to become One with nature, viewing it not as something to destroy for our own pleasure or utility, but because we sense our Oneness with it and feel out of alignment when we betray our fellow animals and plants? What does that call of the wild mean for you? How might you access that primal essence of your true nature today?
JOHANNESBURG, June 5 (Reuters) - The rand held steady against the dollar on Thursday as investors expected the European Central Bank to ease monetary policy to try to boost the European region's economy, a major trading partner for South Africa. The rand ZAR=D3 traded at 10.7500 to the dollar at 0616 GMT, slightly firmer, but not far off a 10.7650 close in New York on Wednesday. The ECB will announce a decision on monetary policy at 1145 GMT. Investors expect a reduction in interest rates into negative territory, to try to force commercial banks to lend out cash they would otherwise deposit with the bank. "The more the ECB eases, the better for South Africa and the better for the rand," said John Cairns, forex strategist at Rand Merchant Bank. The rand was expected to trade with little momentum until the decision, with dealers unsure of what the reaction might be as a lot has already been priced in by the market, traders said. Yields on government bonds climbed three basis points to 8.365 percent on the 2 ...
I have been watching a lot of movies recently. Reruns of the Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, etc. Last week I watched Godzilla. Yesterday, my family and I watched X-Men. We also saw the trailers for the upcoming sequels of the Transformer and Planet of the Apes movies. . . My two conclusions : 1 All the monsters, aliens, robots, future beings, gigantic spaceships, etc DO NOT attack Malaysia. They land and attack New York, London, Tokyo, Hong Kong, etc (they were even in South Africa – remember District 9?) but they don’t come to Malaysia. We are safe. Yey… Malaysia kita aman. 2 All the sophisticated / advanced humans /beings speak English. The Jedis, Yoda, the Elves, Gandalph the Grey, the Autobots, all the X-men, Superman, Batman, Ironman, Spiderman, The Hulk – all of them speak English. So people, please brush up your English if you want to do well in the future.
Maya Angelou (1928 – 2014): She Put A Smile on the Face of the World Written By Jonah Raskin I never met Maya Angelou but I knew her one and only son, Guy Johnson, who took me to the Sonoma Hotel on the plaza in the town of Sonoma and showed me the room where she wrote Gather Together in My Name, the second in the series of seven autobiographies that bear her name. If Guy was rightly proud of her so, too, America was proud of her, and perhaps the whole world as well that devoured her poetry, pondered her essays, made ample use of her cookbooks, watched her perform on stage and cheered as she recited “On the Pulse of the Morning” at Bill Clinton’s inauguration in 1993.  When she died on May 28, 2014 at the age of 86 the news traveled from North Carolina, where she was born, to Arkansas, where she spent part of her childhood, to San Francisco, New York, Tokyo, London, and the world of post-apartheid South Africa that her friend Nelson Mandela helped bring kicking and screaming into existence. She s ...

Human Rights - corporates need to be prepared to get sued over Human Rights abuse . Court Rules Corporations May be Sued for Human Rights Abuses; Case against Ford, IBM for Apartheid-Era Abuses Continues Posted April 28, 2014 by Michelle Harrison Earlier this month, in In re South African Apartheid Litigation, District Court Judge Shira A. Scheindlin in the Southern District of New York held that corporations may be held liable for Human Rights abuses under the Alien Tort Statute (ATS), allowing the plaintiffs to continue their case against two US corporations – Ford and IBM – for their role in the Human Rights abuses carried out during the Apartheid-era in South Africa. Most people thought this question was settled, and that corporations obviously could be sued for gross Human Rights abuses. So why is Judge Scheindlin’s decision significant? To recap, in September 2010, the Second Circuit became the first (and only) federal appeals court to find corporations immune from liability for Human Rights a ...

New York Post April 27, 2014 Andrea Peyser He doesn’t have a shot “I think he’s going to lose.’’ That’s top New York criminal defense lawyer Barry Slotnick on “Blade Runner’’ Oscar Pistorius, the double amputee on trial in South Africa for murdering his girlfriend. Pistorius, 27, got his nickname from the carbon-fiber blades that replace his legs below his knees, and, in 2012 in London, he became the first disabled athlete to compete against non-disabled runners in the Olympics. Last year, Pistorius shot a gun four times through his bathroom door, killing model and reality TV star Reeva Steenkamp, 29. Prosecutors allege he did this in a fit of rage. But in a trial punctuated by Pistorius’ bouts of crying and vomiting, he testified that he mistook the woman for an intruder and shot her accidentally. “I don’t know why he’s having these tearful moments. I don’t know why the defendant is in hysteria. Why should the judge have to guess as to whether that’s real or not real?’’ ...

Michael Jackson’s close South African friends have revealed that the king of pop loved the country so much that he planned to retire here and wanted to help pen the music for the 2010 World Cup song. Speaking from his home in New York yesterday,Gerry Inzerello,Sol Kerzner’s right-hand man,spoke of the “great sadness” felt by himself and his wife Prudence Solomon,the former Miss South Africa and SABC presenter. Jackson was the best man at their Cape Town wedding. According to media reports at the time,Inzerello said: "Ask Michael which is his favourite country,he’ll undoubtedly say South Africa.This place inspires him." Inzerello,who was in Cape Town for the opening of the One & Only hotel earlier this year,confirmed this in the telephonic interview. “South Africa was his second home.He had a special relationship with it. He loved South Africa and he loved Madiba. "Three months ago he told me when he was semi-retired and his third son,Prince Michael Jr,was a little older he planned on relocatin ...
threat disrupt G-20 roiled by emerging market Janet Yellen and Mario Draghi have a new reason to regard what International Monetary Fund chief Christine Lagarde calls the “ogre” of deflation: deteriorating confidence in emerging markets. Weaker growth from Brazil to South Africa risks unleashing a “dis inflationary impulse through the global economy,” said Bruce Kasman, chief economist at JPMorgan Chase & Co. in New York. Less expensive commodities, slower exchange and diminishing exchange rates in developing markets all could soften financial value pressures internationally. That in turn could force Federal Reserve Chair Yellen and European Central Bank President Draghi to keep financial policy loose for longer, bolstering the attractiveness of their financial assets even at the threat of creating asset bubbles. “Emerging market volatility is likely to continue,” said Roberto Perli, a former Fed economist and now a partner at Cornerstone Macro LP in Washington. That “over time could lead to ...

What is Soulful House? As House Music became more popular around the world, it became associated with the more extreme forms such as Acid House, Euro Hard House and Rave, etc. The real House Music connoisseurs stayed firmly on the side of more soul- and jazz-enriched forms of the genre – for many and for a while this genre was tagged as Funky House, but again this term became somewhat abused and clichéd due to the populist crossover with UK Garage and 2Step, and with the resulting popularity, the music became more commercial, cheesy and pop-oriented. So today’s House Music connoisseurs favour the terms “Soulful House” or “Deep House“. Soulful House has a healthy underground scene, albeit split across the world with popular hot spots being Chicago, New York, London, Brazil, Melbourne and South Africa. It remains fairly underground with a scene similar to the soul and jazz-funk scene in the 70s and 80s. The demographic is predominantly people in their late 20s upwards, with many liking the s .. ...

A facility designed by world-renowned acoustics designer, it is rated third after Abbey Road Studios in London, and the Ocean Way Recording in the US. One of most lavish recording facility ever built is not in London, New York or LA, but in Mahikeng - South Africa. You have not heard about the facility and probably not many people have. The studios were built as a money no object project, to bring international recognition to Bophutatswana and for musician to record in the capital of the homeland, it was the idea of the flamboyant bantustan president Kgosi Lucas Manyane Mangope. Construction began in 1989 and was completed in 1991, the building has 3 studios, they each have the biggest sound console the world renowned manufacture were making at the time. The studios are built as concrete boxes floating on springs, they have amazing isolation, it seem like they were built to withstand earthquakes. A musician could carryon recording during a earthquake, that's how much isolation they have. Bop Recording Stu ...
Joining any political party seems to be a euphemism for putting your functioning brain on hold until further notice. The problem with morons is that it’s impossible to explain to them that they are morons. Take how the ANC’s deputy secretary-general, Jessie Duarte, wrote in this paper last week that if the DA won, it would sell South Africa to New York and London. I completely feel comrade Jessie’s anger. The ANC is very clear – only the Guptas can buy South Africa. If the ANC is serious about its promise of 6million jobs, it will start a further education and training college for “service-delivery protesters” to develop skills like blocking townships with burning tyres, burning down libraries and, of course, not getting killed by your own government. Well done, ANC. Twenty years is all it took to go from “kill the boer” to “kill the poor”. In fact, the service-delivery protesters would get more attention from Luthuli House if they dressed in DA T-shirts and marched on it. Then we saw ...

FinalCall.com News World News A call for reparations on the world stage By Ashahed M. Muhammad Assistant Editor Updated May 7, 2009 - 8:45:35 AM Durban conference attendees press demand for redress for horrors of the slave trade GENEVA, Switzerland (FinalCall.com) - Blacks in the Diaspora continued the mission initiated eight years ago at the World Conference Against Racism in Durban, South Africa, to demand the United Nations declare the trans-Atlantic slave trade a crime against humanity, opening the door for a continued push for reparations at the Durban Review Conference in Geneva, Switzerland, April 20-24. Much of the discussion surrounding the weeklong conference and its activities focused on the non-involvement of several Western nations and reactions to the presence of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at the conference. Neither of which are the main issue, according to the executive director of the December 12th Movement, Viola Plummer, based in Brooklyn, New York. “The United States has n ...
THE ILLUMINATI (THE JEWS) CONTROL THE MEDIA (cable tv, cable news, newpapers wide-wide including The Post Newspaper in Zambia.. and some newspapers in Zimbabwe and South Africa) David Rockefeller (a Rothschild) makes the following statement, “We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New York Times, Time Magazine, and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost 40 years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world, if we had been subjected to the lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The super-national sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practised in past centuries.” In America in 1880, John Swinton, then the pre-eminent New York journalist, said “There is no such thing, at this date of the world’s history, in America, as an ind ...

It is extremely pleasing that the PNG Department of Foreign Affairs has taken a step up by hosting its Heads of Oversea's missions Conference back home in Port Moresby to create a blue-print which takes the shape of its Corporate Plan and it is hoped that they will also chart a long term plan for the department to rebuild itself now and into the future. I sincerely also hope that they will work more closely with the Department of National Planning and Monitoring (DNPM) to ensuring that the State can also purchase permanent buildings for our missions abroad like in Brussells, Belgieum, France, Germany, London, Tokyo, Beijing, New York and Washington D.C. Moreover, It is also hoped that the PNG Government will look towards the possibility of re-opening a Embassy in South Africa to advance the "O'Neill Doctrine" - that of Promoting Positive and Constructive Image of PNG and Advancing the Vision 2050 as well as the PNG DSP 2010 -2030 to the community of nation states both the United Nations as well as on a bi ...

THIS DATE IN HISTORY JANUARY 11, 1992: Paul Simon returns to Johannesburg, South Africa, with the blessing of the U.N. In 1985, singer-songwriter Paul Simon made a controversial nine-day visit to South Africa—a visit that some felt was in violation of a United Nations cultural boycott, but a visit that dramatically increased worldwide awareness of black South Africa's rich musical traditions. Seven years later, with the U.N. boycott lifted, Simon returned to South Africa to play a historic concert in Johannesburg on January 11, 1992. The cultural boycott of South Africa was put in place during the late-60s and early-70s in response to the racist policies of South Africa under apartheid. With the vocal support of South Africa's banned opposition party, the African National Congress, the United Nations barred South Africa from participating in international sporting events and cultural affairs. Because Black South Africans were already barred from such activities under apartheid, it was hoped that an inte ...

Yep, silver and gold. This song was written in a hotel room in New York City 'round the time a friend of ours, Little Steven, was putting together a record of artists against apartheid. This is a song written about a man in a shanty town outside of Johannesburg. A man who's sick and tired of looking down the barrel of white South Africa. A man who is at the point where he is ready to take up arms against his oppressor. A man who has lost faith in the peacemakers of the west while they argue and while they fail to support a man like Bishop Tutu and his request for economic sanctions against South Africa. Am I buggin' you? I don't mean to bug ya. Okay Edge, play the blues. Ruttle and Hum

Whispers are swirling around Capitol Hill that Fort Knox is empty. That all the gold is gone... That the U.S. government has been shipping gold to nations like China (as collateral for a weak dollar). Scary isn't it? Without any gold in Fort Knox, the United States has nothing backing the dollar but faith. Here's what Wall Street Daily analysts have confirmed... The U.S. government has NOT done a public audit of the gold in Fort Knox since 1974. Policymakers have ignored all requests for a new audit, too. Worse yet, $982 million worth of gold has left JFK International Airport in New York since the year began. The destination? Somewhere in South Africa. The gold shipment was confirmed by the U.S. Census Bureau's foreign trade division.

Smith Wigglesworth (1859-1947) "Australia you have been chosen by God for a great move of the Holy Spirit. This move of God will be the greatest move of God ever known in mankind’ s history and will start towards the end of the 20th century and move into the 21st century. This move of God will start a great revival in Australia, spread throughout the whole world..." This is a quote that I whole heartedly believe was prophesying of the amazing global impact of a local church, Hillsong Church, who's pastor was not even born yet! It is so amazing seeing what God is doing through Hillsong Church in Australia, France, England, Germany, Ukraine, Denmark, Sweden, Spain, South Africa, and even the US! With a campus in New York, and one coming soon to Las Angeles, I believe Revival will sweep through our country. I am so ready to not only see it, but be a part of it! Thank you Carl Lentz, Joel Houston, Ben Houston, and the countless others who have given so much to see Revival in America!

However, after his release, Mandela “mellowed” and forsook the Freedom Charter and began to speak of economic reconciliation with white capital. He immediately became a darling of the West. During his 1990 visit to the United States, Mandela said in New York: “The ANC will re-introduce the market to South Africa.” With democratic elections in 1994, racial apartheid was ended but economic apartheid had a new face, a legitimising black face.

State President Botha's loss of influence can be directly attributed to decisions taken at the Ronald Reagan/Mikhail Gorbachev summit of the leaders of the United States and the Soviet Union in Moscow (29 May – 1 June 1988) that paved the way to resolving the problem of Namibia which, according to foreign minister Pik Botha, was destabilising the region and "seriously complicating" the major issue which South Africa itself would shortly have to face.[9] Soviet military aid would cease and Cuban troops be withdrawn from Angola as soon as South Africa complied with UN Security Council Resolution 435 by relinquishing control of Namibia and allowing UN-supervised elections there. The Tripartite Agreement, which gave effect to the Reagan/Gorbachev summit decisions, was signed at UN headquarters in New York on 22 December 1988 by representatives of Angola, Cuba and South Africa.[10] On 18 January 1989, Botha (then aged 73) suffered a mild stroke which prevented him from attending a meeting with Namibian polit ...

A frail gentleman entered the conference hall supported by an elderly lady. There was some commotion as we realized it was Nelson Mandela who had entered the room with Graca Machel, Kofi Annan and Nana Annan. We were at the Say YES for children campaign at the UN General Assembly special session for children in New York, USA in 2002.  This was the first time I laid eyes on the man who I had read and heard so much about. The man who had gone through so much in a struggle for the freedom of the black African population in South Africa and revered around the world. My first thought was that he looked so old and frail, not like the man I had imagined him to be after reading the stories. This made him mortal as opposed to the picture of him in my young mind. This was when one of the first lessons I learnt from Nelson Mandela became clear. I learnt that all our heroes are mortals like us, but they embrace that mortality and give up their comforts and many times their lives for a cause. For Mandela, it was losi ...

I have to do a shout out to Lydia Polgreen the granddaughter of our dear Hudson, WI friend, Beth Polgreen. Lydia has been a correspondent for the New York Times in Africa for many years and was recently notified that she's getting a high-level editorial job with them in New York. The occasion of Nelson Mandela's death, however, found her back in South Africa and she did a moving live interview with Judy Woodruff on the News Hour tonight.

Awards owned bt Nelson Mandela: Over the last 40 years Nelson Mandela has received more than 250 awards, the latest being the Freedom of the London Borough of Brent. He is an honorary citizen of dozens of cities, from Rome to Rio de Janeiro. Parks, streets, and schools around the world hold his name. There is a Nelson Mandela Road in New Delhi, Nelson Mandela Park in Leicester, England, and a Nelson and Winnie Mandela Plaza in New York. He received countless honorary degrees from universities globally, including the most prestigious ones – Cambridge, London School of Economics (LSE), Paris’ Sorbonne, and Harvard, and less famous institutions such as the University of the Philippines and Bangkok’s Chulalongkorn University. Mandela was also recognised in the sporting community. In 2006 he became an honorary member of Manchester United when the club toured South Africa. Three years later he received Arthur Ashe Courage Award presented by tennis players Venus and Serena Williams. One of the most peculi ...
Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (1918-2013) [95] Late Former President of South Africa. Mandela, like most human beings, was a complicated man; at the one hand, he said that the United States has killed more people than Islamic terrorists; on the other hand, he denounced the 9/11 terrorist attack in New York, calling then President George W. Bush, to extend his sympathies and condolences. His criticism of America; and his self-description as a Communist did not keep him from admiring America's history, Constitution, Founding Fathers, and civil rights achievements. Though he had ties to Yasser Arafat, Mandela publically supported, in no uncertain terms, Israel's right to exist. But it is in his life, as is remembered in his death, that Nelson Mandela is known, and will forever be known, as a freedom fighter for his oppressed fellow South Africans, struggling against the despotism of a race-based tyrannical government that treated Blacks like second-class citizens; in many cases worse, in their own country. When ...
I was shocked to hear that Mandela had passed. I was looking at the Defiant One and about to look at A Raisin in the Sun on TCM that was having a tribute to Sidney Poitier. A voice told me to turn to CBS News with Scott Pelley. But, still, I did not think. He had passed. There was a teacher in New York on how he came to their school and how he inspired him to become a teacher. Then the news came that he had passed. I don't know to much of Mandela's life. Because I was practically still in pampers. I still don't even today. Don't know much of his past. But, what he had become later in life after he was released from prison. The President of South Africa. I was reading one of the commenters comments on him on this site that talked of him being a communist and an evil man. I don't know if their is a good communist or a bad one. Whites have did vicious things to blacks in the passed. And, may be some of his tactics were vicious. But, they are no vicious then what the white man has done to blacks or Hitler to ...
The Nelson Mandela They Keep You Ignorant About (TAF) [[Caveat -- The comments that follow are in no way a defense of racism nor a justification of South Africa's deplorable apartheid system. Apartheid was every bit as wrong as slavery in 18th century America. For the record, any form of racism is only ever a bad thing. No one claiming to love liberty, much less a follower of Jesus Christ can tolerate any racism, anywhere. We are all, black, white, red and yellow, God's creation, all imago dei.]] This week saw the death of Nelson Mandela, patron saint of Progressive causes and the moral champion of terrorism in the cause of freedom. For decades Americans have been fed a heavy dose of disinformation to reimage an otherwise butcher into a Gandhi-like, nay, a Mother Theresa-like saint of nobility, non-violent political protest for freedom and friend to white men everywhere. To be sure at sundry times Mandela did advocate non-violent protest against South Africa's deplorable apartheid. True, after Mandela's u ...
THE PRESIDENT OF THE General Assembly -- STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF Nelson Mandela United Nations, New York, 5 December 2013 It is with great sadness that I learn of the passing of an international peace icon and one of the greatest moral leaders of our time, Mr. Nelson Mandela, the former President of South Africa. As the President of the General Assembly, I would like to pay tribute to President Nelson Mandela and to convey my sincere condolences to his family and to the people and Government of South Africa for the loss of a great architect of the new South Africa and indeed a new Africa. In 1994, Mr. Mandela became the first black and democratically elected President of South Africa, embracing his former oppressors and leading the country on a new path of healing. By so doing, Mr. Mandela chose reconciliation over revenge, hope over despair. As he so eloquently said in his Inaugural Address: “Never, never and never again shall it be that this beautiful land will again experience the oppression of o ...

I have finally written a book. it is now in the hands of a New York publisher. The book is entitled. "Africa's Blind Spot". and it will be out in May 2014. The book focuses on the work of Kwame Nkrumah through Nelson Mandela. In the book, I also took a glimpse at Steve Biko's work. The man who defied all odds to speak out against injustices in South Africa. I also talked about Muammar Gaddafi the mad man of Libya who manipulated Nelson Mandela and African National Congress.(ANC) inner circle into believing that Africa can manage their own affairs without interference from the West, which is up to now a failed free market and economical strategy for Africa. In retrospect, Africa need the west, African people are handicapped in the area of technological know how. The fact is, Africa need trade with the west to improve African peoples lives. The whole African countries depends on USA and Scandinavian countries for hand outs in healthcare and economical aid. No wonder, the money for Aid from a ...

Benny Hinn, Master Freemason Kenneth Copeland. A False teacher we've warned about for years for numerous false doctrines he's taught including salvation by works which makes him a non-Christian or a pretender Christian from the outset.

A Nigerian man and his wife were having dinner at a very nice restaurant when this absolutely stunning young woman comes over to their table, gives the husband a big kiss, says she'll see him later and walks away.His wife glares at him and says, "Who the *** was that?"" Oh," replies the husband, "she's my mistress." "Well, that's the last straw," says the wife. "I've had enough, I want a divorce. "I can understand that," replies her husband, "but remember, if we get a divorce it means that you don't get any more shopping trips to London, Paris or New York, no more Christmas abroad, no more weekend trips to South Africa or Dubai, no more Mercedes, Land Rover or BMW in the garage and no more Boat Club, Beach House or Ikoyi Club. But the decision is yours." Just then, another Nigerian friend enters the restaurant with a younger gorgeous girl on his arm. "Who's that woman with Chief?" asks the wife. "That's his mistress," says her husband. "Ours is prettier," she replies.

According to the Mail and Guardian today, a top New York law firm has found that ANC National Chairperson, Baleka Mbete threatened to scupper the issuing of a Goldfields mining licence unless her shareholding was increased in an empowerment deal (see here). If true, Mbete's conduct may amount to criminal conduct, and should be investigated. Former Goldfields Chair, Mamphela Ramphele has in the past accused the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR) of forcing the company to select certain empowerment partners. The involvement of the DMR in such deals is unethical. The DA will submit parliamentary questions to the Mineral Resources, Susan Shabangu to determine: Whether or not the DMR did pressure Goldfields to include certain people in its empowerment scheme; and Whether she approves of such pressure being exercised. Unless government moves to restore credibility to its system of awarding mining rights, South Africa will not attract investment from credible investors. A failure to attract investment will re ...
The Paddington Arts Centre in west London was on fire yesterday as our Philly/Fort Greene crew blazed in for the first screening of the "Bad Friday in Africa" Tour. This was our one and only screening in the UK before heading to Cape Town, South Africa tomorrow. The event was standing room only, and how could we not rise to our feet once the live drum and Nyabingi chants lead by Junior "Gabu" Wedderburn (the film's composer and co-producer) and his Ancient Vibrations showered the space with praise and power. In some sense everyone in the space was far from home, whether home is Coral Gardens or Carroll Gardens, Clarendon or Brixton, Miami, Dominica, Queens, New York or Queen Village, Philadelphia, joining our voices to "fly away home to Zion" foregrounded the familiar. With the smiley shea butter and aloe vera vendor, the dead serious bookseller (whose collection of Marcus, Malcolm, Van Sertima is the same in Harlem, in Compton, in Newark) the sea of red gold and green, mudcloth and kente, the miles (kil ...
These things that you call my "dreams" are my GOALS! (Dreams happen when you're asleep). This thing you call "reality" is what I call SOMEONE ELSE'S PLAN FOR MY LIFE. Applied for a job and I got a call back the next day. He told me he was gonna set up an interview via email. You know why he never sent the email? He tells the Assistant Manager, that I didn't sound like I wanted to work for "a detailing service" I just wanted to work. So, SOMEONE ELSE'S PLAN FOR ME is to WANT to detail cars for less than $20k per year. This is the "reality" of looking for a job. Meanwhile this "dream" I have of making music has me working on my 5th CD with people downloading me from Texas, Florida, Tennessee, Maryland, New York, South Africa, West Germany, etc. This "dream" I have of working on cars has already paid me and bought me tools to work on more cars... & bought me a few cars along the way. The truth is, Life is What You Make It! I don't need a paycheck to validate my existence. I could EASILY go back and finish sc ...
Off to spread more laughter and feel-good endorphins across the world - I'll be going from New York to Dubai, from Dubai to Perth, Australia; open for Engelbert Humperdinck, then fly to Brisbane, get on a cruise ship bound for South Africa, perform two shows, get off the ship in Indonesia, fly to Singapore, then to Tokyo, then back to New York. Even though the world is my oyster, I think it's perhaps a little bigger than that.
Lagos — One of Africa's top business leaders, Nigerian entrepreneur and philanthropist, Tony O. Elumelu, caught the development world's attention recently by challenging their strategies for Africa at the African Development Bank's (ADB) annual meeting in Morocco. It was there he declared that charity and aid in Africa could only go so far, and that African entrepreneurs were the new face of development. What makes him so sure? Elumelu rose to fame as the youngest bank CEO in his home country, when at the age of 34, he turned a distressed Standard Trust Bank into a top-five player in Nigeria. He then led the largest merger in the banking sector in sub-Saharan Africa – outside of South Africa – acquiring United Bank for Africa (UBA). Within five years he had transformed UBA from a single-country bank to a pan-African institution with over 7 million customers and 25,000 employees, in 19 African countries as well as London, Paris and New York. And therein lies the answer. Elumelu believes that UBA is p ...

A recent post from the former head of Training at the CBC, the legendary author Tim Knight bears repeating under the circumstances... My qualifications for commenting on Project Spear — Emmy and Sigma Delta Chi awards for excellence in journalism, producer/reporter with ABC, NBC and PBS in New York, head of TV journalism training for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, reporter for Natal Mercury and Sunday Express, lead trainer on TV journalism training workshops in a dozen countries including numerous workshops for both SABC and e.tv. I tell you all this not to boast, but to suggest that I have some qualifications for writing this assessment of Project Spear by Sylvia Vollenhoven: I screened an earlier version and am convinced that it’s one of the most important exposés ever produced about corruption in South Africa. It’s about billions and billions of the people’s money stolen by corrupt politicians, bankers and shadowy power brokers before, during and after independence. It’s tough, compl ...

20 June, 1990 - Nelson Mandela receives a hero’s welcome in New York Nelson Mandela was greeted the way New York welcomes its heroes – with mounds of security and miles of tickertape. According to reports, the security for Mandela included 12 000 city police officers, 4 super-insulated bomb trucks, 16 teams of demolition experts, helicopters, boats, a 90-horse mounted unit and 6 200 sawhorse barricades. Mandela, who was deputy president of the African National Congress (ANC) at the time, was received at the City Hall after a traditional parade up Lower Broadway. At the steps of the City Hall Mandela paid tribute to New Yorkers: "You, the wonderful citizens of New York, have demonstrated in the most visible manner that we, the oppressed people of South Africa and the ANC, are admired and respected (and) that it is the dying apartheid system that is totally isolated.” Mandela’s tour of eight American cities, the first of which was New York, comprised of taping television programmes, attending fund-r ...

Was randomly looking up Dave Matthews on Wikipedia ad came across this: In early 1994, Matthews' older sister, Anne, who lived in South Africa, was murdered by her husband, who subsequently committed suicide, on or around January 27 of that year. The event had a drastic effect on Matthews' outlook on life and was referenced in a few of his songs. On January 29, 1994, he performed with Tim Reynolds at The Wetlands in New York, where he dedicated that performance "to her [Ann's] memory". Dave Matthews Band's Under the Table and Dreaming, released later that year, was dedicated to her. Anne Matthews was survived by her two children who, upon her death, traveled to America, where Dave and his younger sister, Jane, took responsibility for their upbringing (his sister is the namesake of DMB's song, "The Song that Jane Likes") Remind anyone of Oscar Pistorius? Charlize Theron's mother killed her father in self-defense in South Africa also. South Africa sounds like a scary place. Or maybe the incidents in South . ...

About five days ago I arrived in Helsinki, Finland. I touched down with Norwegian Airlines, having boarded at Gatwick Airport in the United Kingdom. It took me a sun-swept moment to realise that it had been almost six months since I had left South Africa to pursue further education abroad. I missed home, without knowing where I could find it, or how I wanted to do so. In a video promoting Sally Williams Fine Honey Nougat, a v/o narrator boasts that her goods can be found "as far afield as Helsinki". Some South Africans will recognise the Sally Williams label for her range of confectionery, including the waxy-papered nougat bars. Sally Williams had made it to Sydney, Paris, New York, London, Helsinki...She had made it in these splendorous global cities. And there I was, baking in the sun of one of the cosmopolitan dreamworlds. I have been lucky to have travelled fairly extensively in the last five years especially. My journeys have taken me to São Paulo, Hong Kong, Sharm el-Sheikh, and to various Europe ...

Same-sex marriage is a dirty and very complex issue! The recognition of same-sex marriages continues to generate debate worldwide, especially in countries of the European Union and in the United States of America. Some countries in Europe and some states in the USA found that denying same-sex couples the right to marry violated their state constitutions. What does the Nigerian Constitution say about same-sex marriage? Same-sex marriage is legal in the countries of Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Iceland, the Netherlands, France, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, and Sweden. In the United States as of 2012, same-sex marriage is legal in Connecticut, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont, Washington, and the District of Columbia. Several other states recognize civil unions and domestic partnerships as well as out-of-state marriages. Opponents of same-sex marriage argue that the institution of marriage should apply only to unions between one man and one woman. Allowing *** a ...

This was one of my favorite articles of 2012 because it combined two of my favorite things: Candice Swanepoel, the impossibly sexy and sweet stunner from South Africa, and the fine folks at 10 magazine. I’ve been a fan of 10 since I was still at university, when they took a chance on a young writer who would beg for stories and free drinks, and give me my first commissions. (Love you, Antony!) So when they asked if I wanted to interview Candice for the cover of their Brazilian issue, I said yes in a New York minute. It was a good chat too: Candice is a Brazilian convert, and she likes to talk about beaches, Bahia, boys and beers. Now that’s my kind of girl. Read our entire interview below.       EREK BLASBERG: “It’s the Brazilian issue, Candice, so let’s start there. When was the first time you went to this place you love so much?” Candice Swanepoel: “I was 17 years old, and my first memories were the freedom, the energy in the people and in the culture. I went with my boyfriend. We had s ...

Move over Gordon Ramsay. A highly controversial chef is attempting to take Las Vegas by storm, Ramsay-style. But this newcomer has set his sights on multiple locations off-Strip and his controversial past includes a wake of serious charges and allegations. Conrad Gallagher is planning to open PoshBurger Bistro on March 15, in the same retail complex as Dom DeMarco's Pizzeria & Bar. Gallagher is a former culinary wunderkind, winning his first Michelin Star at age 25. In recent years his reputation has been dominated by a string of failed ventures in Ireland, New York and South Africa., directly affecting his restaurant workers, as much as optimistic investors. Reports of his financial impropriety on three continents abound. An arrest and subsequent acquittal for the theft of $13,000 in paintings became a tabloid cause célèbre. In July of last year, The New York Post gave an infamous zero star review of Gallagher's The Purple Fig. The restaurant closed amidst charges of not paying staff or suppliers and o ...

The President presents an award at the Golden Globes, and the First Lady presents an award at the Oscars. During the election, they attended campaign fundraisers thrown by Sarah Jessica Parker, Anna Wintour, George Clooney, Ellen DeGeneres, Donna Mills, Sharon Stone and a Hollywood producer. At the White House, they regularly entertain "good friends" Beyonce and Jay-Z, George Clooney, Barbara Streisand and David Geffen. He, Michelle and their daughters have gone skiing in Vail and Aspen, had vacations at Palm Springs, Martha's Vineyard, Hawaii, and South Africa. He and Michelle flew to New York for a "Date Night." Am I the only one that finds that such frequent in-your-face fraternization with Hollywood celebrities and luxury vacations cheapens the office of the President and smells a bit of elitism - especially at a time when the middle-class of America is struggling so bad in the recession? How are we to feel that he feels our pain and understands our problems, when he so blatantly hob-knobs with th ...
The Diamond Industry The diamond industry consists of segments that mines, processes and markets gem diamonds and industrial diamonds. Gem quality diamonds are mined primarily in Botswana, Russia, South Africa, Angola, Namibia, Australia and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It takes an average of 250 tons of mined ore to produce one carat of finished diamond. the primary diamond processing centers, where they are evaluated, cut and sold are in Antwerp; India, Tel Aviv and New York. Unlike precious metals such as gold or platinum, gem diamonds do not trade as a commodity: there is a substantial mark-up in the sale of diamonds, and there is not a very active market for resale of diamonds. One hallmark of the trade in gem-quality diamonds is its remarkable concentration: wholesale trade and diamond cutting is limited to a few locations. 92% of diamond pieces cut in 2003 were in Surat, Gujarat, India. Other important centers of diamond cutting and trading are Antwerp, London, New York, Tel Aviv, Amsterda ...

Five surgeons from big cities are discussing who makes the Best patients to operate on.

King Nelson Mandela's Image How Long Before Worship Is Required From AfricanCrisis.Org By Shaun Willcock 7-25-4 There are plans to erect a giant statue of Nelson Mandela, 65 metres (over 200 feet) high, in the city of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. This sculpture would be bigger than the Statue of Liberty in New York! Communist countries have loved to idolize their leaders, conferring near-godlike status upon them after their deaths. Historically and officially, Communism despised all religion, but lost no time in creating a religion of its own: the religion of the State itself. And the gods of this State religion were its leaders and founders, to whom the masses were required to pay homage. Vladimir Leninís corpse was set up in public to be virtually adored. Russians in their hundreds of thousands would line up to file slowly and reverently past his see-through casket, to gaze adoringly at his mortal remains. Giant statues of Lenin, Stalin and other Communist 'heroes' were erected all over the vast Sovie ...

What a wonderful Australia Day! I woke up late, threw on some clothes from South Africa, sent a few TXT messages on my Korean-made cell phone, cooked up some Indonesian noodles and washed it down with a highball of soda from Dublin and Tennessee whiskey, set up that flatscreen from China I bought last week, kicked back on my Swedish bed and took in a few episodes of a British comedy. Now, I'm just relaxing, listening to my favourite band from North Carolina, playing a French video game, and waiting for my best friend to pick me up in her Japanese car and hit up a New York restaurant chain for dinner.

Public Opinion or Personal Principles © By Alton H. Maddox, Jr. Before Bernard Goetz took the honors as the "subway gunman", Willie Bosket had already taken credit for murders that would easily make him the original "subway gunman". New York was willing to give Bosket the honors. The state wanted to import from South Africa an apartheid law against Black teens. Black children would be subject to adult prosecutions in New York. The use of this law in American jurisprudence would be unprecedented. Willie would have to be adjudicated a juvenile delinquent , however, because he was under sixteen years of age. Most states would wait until a child reaches the age of eighteen before he or she would be subject to adult prosecutions. New York now prosecute some thirteen-year-olds as adults. "All of God's Children" is a book about the Bosket family spanning from Africa to the United States. New York would arrest the "seeds" of the Bosket family tree. Willie Bosket would have to spend the rest of his life be ...

Mark Carney spent thirteen years with Goldman Sachs in its London, Tokyo, New York and Toronto offices. His progressively more senior positions included co-head of sovereign risk; executive director, emerging debt capital markets; and managing director, investment banking. He worked on South Africa's post-apartheid venture into international bond markets, and was involved in Goldman's work with the 1998 Russian financial crisis. Goldman's role in the Russian crisis was criticized at the time because while the company was advising Russia it was simultaneously betting against the country's ability to repay its debt.

Candles Behind Bars By Eli & Malka Touger Rabbi Shabsi Katz, the Rabbi of Pretoria, the administrative capital of South Africa, and the Jewish Chaplain for the Department of Prisons in that country, maintained a relationship with the Lubavitcher Rebbe for many years. In December of 1978, he came to visit the Rebbe for the third time. At a private audience with the Rebbe a few days before Chanukah, the Rebbe asked Rabbi Katz what was being done for Jewish prisoners in South Africa. Rabbi Katz explained that conditions in South African prisons were much harsher than in New York, but that Jewish prisoners were not obligated to work on Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur or Passover, and on Passover, they were given food certified kosher for the holiday by Pretoria's rabbinate. The Rebbe asked: "And what about Chanukah? Can the inmates light Chanukah candles?" One must appreciate, the Rebbe said, how important it is for a person sitting alone in a cell to light a Chanukah menorah. One cannot fathom the warmth and hope ...

“LIMPOPO has no textbooks because all the money goes to Jacob Zuma’s wives.” These strong words came from fired ANCYL president Julius Malema when he addressed Friends of the Youth League at St Marco Hall in Polokwane last night. “He gets married every December and that costs people’s tax,” Malema told the crowd. “Now lets go to the Magaung Elective Conference and oust him. “Lets make sure South Africa is out of Zuma’s hands. “There is no clear focus with Zuma, no free education, no Rural Development. “Only Nkandla is developed and it looks like New York in SA,” he said. “A leader must lead with ideas. Zuma leads by occupying the offices. He doesn’t have ideas,” Malema said. “Since 1994 unemployment has been rife. “Zuma came with his Second Transition which doesn’t exist. “We can’t leave the ANC.

U.N. Wants Global Gun Ban NewsMax.com Friday, April 27, 2001 The U.N. is after Americans' Second Amendment gun rights – it wants gun ownership banned in the U.S., and it's not going to stop until it gets its way. That’s the warning from the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre, who reveals that "for the first time in the history of the world, a United Nations conference has set its sights on global disarmament – disarming citizens worldwide – including you and me." At an 11-day meeting beginning July 9 at U.N. headquarters in New York, every extremist anti-gun group in the world will show up at a summit on "small arms," where the delegates will attempt to create a global standard of gun control, banning civilian fire arms ownership worldwide. Their aim, LaPierre warns, is "to bring the nightmare of England, Australia and Canada into our country and our homes." Those nations, along with South Africa and others, have caved in to international pressure and severely restricted civilian gun ow ...
