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 ...

"But the question in a greater sense is, how can white people who are the majority–and who are responsible for making democracy work–make it work? They have miserably failed to this point.

Wherever America has been, she has not been able to make democracy work."-Kwame Ture

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 ...

Osinbajo: A Game Changer Of Nigerian Politics? History of great nations, great men and women are filled with salient events that change the present and shape the future in unprecedented manner. Like Abraham Lincoln, the 16th president of United States of America, Winston Churchill of Britain and Nelson Mandela of South Africa, the emergence of Professor Yemi Osinbajo as the Vice Presidential candidate to the All Progressives Congress ( APC) has not only caused panic in the nation’s political quarters but has also triggered immediate return of other contenders to the drawing board on how to curtail the growing support base for APC. The strength of Osinbajo from the South-West zone of the country, now the ‘new’ kid on the country’s political block, suddenly became manifest to many who felt he stood no chance against heavy weights like Governor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State, Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, former governor of Ekiti State, Dr. Kayode Fayemi , Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lago ...

Emperor Norton I of the United States - Protector of Mexico Born in England, Norton grew up in South Africa. He came to San Francisco in 1849 after receiving an inheritance of $40,000 from his father. Rice shortage in San Francisco drove the price of rice up, and so he invested everything on a shipment of rice. Other shipments of rice came in and killed the prices and he lost everything. After years of lawsuits, he lost everything. He took matters into his own hands and distributed letters to the various newspapers in the city, proclaiming himself "Emperor of these United States." He wore elaborate blue uniform with gold-plated epaulettes, given to him by officers of the United States Army and carried a sword or cane to enhance his regal posture. His imperial decrees were published in the news paper. He issued a decree formally abolishing the United States Congress. Norton summoned the Army to depose the elected officials of the U.S. Congress. He abolished the Democratic and Republican parties. He issued ...
OBASANJO AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF DESTRUCTION INSTEAD OF NATION BUILDING : Great leaders write on issues and ideas that move nations forward and advance the course of human development. Obafemi Awolowo and Nnamdi Azikiwe of Nigeria, Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Lee Kwan Yu wrote of Singapore, Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Ghandi of India, Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama of the United States, Winston Churchill and Tony Blair of the United Kingdom, etc, have all penned great works that have become inseparable companions of scholars, political leaders, policy makers, successful businessmen, senior government administrstors, military strategists and historians around the world.

Nyaope, also called "whoonga," is the street drug that is ravaging South Africa’s impoverished townships. Cheap and highly addictive, it is said to include marijuana, low-grade heroin and other additives like rat poison and antiretrovirals, which are used to treat HIV. The details of nyaope are local, but the story has become universal. Nasty, low-cost cocktail drugs are a growing problem in many parts of the world. “Krokodil” — a mix of codeine and gasoline, so named for the flesh-destroying skin condition it causes — is reported to have recently spread from Eastern Europe into the United States. In South Africa, nyaope is popular among lower income groups in the townships surrounding Johannesburg and Pretoria, areas already facing high unemployment and poverty. Nyaope only emerged in the last six or seven years but is widely available, costing just 30 rand ($3) for a hit. The drug has drawn national attention here in South Africa. President Jacob Zuma warned earlier this year that the nation's ...
There’s Going to Be an Alternative to the World Bank and IMF by Crystal Shepeard The International Monetary Fund and World Bank began in 1944 as a post-war solution to help with reconstruction and redevelopment. Today, they continue to focus on reconstruction and reducing poverty, in addition to being the go-to source for emergency funds in times of economic crisis. It is the latest tactics around economic policy, though, that have created a division between western and emerging nations. Frustrated by the dominance of western nations, particularly the United States, five nations — Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa — have decided to create their own financial alternatives to the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. These nations, called the BRICS nations, represent very different economies than the nations that control global economic policy. They represent 21 percent of global economic output and 50 percent of all worldwide economic growth. They are also the ones to most often ...

Lionel Messi has been the key to Argentina's perfect start at the World Cup, scoring four of their six goals in three straight group wins, and the South Americans hope his blistering form continues when they face Switzerland in the last 16 on Tuesday. Also battling for a place in the quarterfinals are the United States and Belgium, who arrived as one of the favourites to lift the trophy but have not yet fired on all cylinders. Although Argentina have yet to reach the heights many expected of them in Brazil, Messi has been on a different planet, electrifying crowds and banishing memories of the goal drought he endured in South Africa four years ago. Fellow forward Sergio Aguero is a major doubt after picking up an injury against Nigeria in their final group game, however, and should he miss out manager Alejandro Sabella may opt for the versatile Ezequiel Lavezzi. Sabella, though, was playing his cards close to his chest on the eve of the match in Sao Paulo. "In case Lavezzi plays he can play in two differe ...

If the United States is included, Imani is still ahead of any think-tanks in Finland and Greece and most think-tanks in Sweden. And when the scope is restricted to think-tanks in Sub-Saharan Africa only, as many as six Ghanaian think tanks makes it to the top 100. Franklin Cudjoe is the founding President and Chief Executive Officer of Imani and a well-kno ...
The Horse Memorial is a provincial heritage site in Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa, in memory of the horses that served and died during the Second Boer War. One of the reasons for Port Elizabeth taking such an interest in the movement, which started in 1901 was the fact that most of the horses brought to this country were landed here. The horses were shipped from all over the world , including 50 000 from United States and 35 000 from Australia. Please visit and like our web at
Substitute John Brooks' late header helped the United States exact World Cup revenge on Ghana in an entertaining Group G match. The African side were looking to complete a hat-trick of World Cup wins over the Stars and Stripes, having beaten them 2-1 in both Germany and South Africa. It had looked set to end in a draw after Clint Dempsey's early strike was cancelled out by Andre Ayew, only for half-time replacement Brooks to head home in the 86th minute to secure Jurgen Klinsmann's side a 2-1 win in Natal. A month's worth of rain had fallen in the city in the days leading up to the Group G encounter but the match went ahead at Estadio das Dunas, which witnessed the opening goal after just 29 seconds as Seattle Sounders midfielder Dempsey showed neat footwork before slotting home. Jozy Altidore left the field on a stretcher with a hamstring strain after wasting a great chance to double the USA's advantage, before they then lost Matt Besler to a hamstring complaint. Those changes looked to disrupt the Stars ...
OBAMA BOYZ BROOKS NO NONSENSE FROM Black Stars; RONALDO'S PORTUGAL POUNDED AND Super Eagles HELD! A late John Brooks goal gave the United States a somewhat undeserved 2-1 win over a determined youthful Ghana. The Africans conceded the quickest goal of this Brazil World Cup with Clint Dempsey giving Jurgen Klinsmann's side the lead after 35 seconds. Andre Ayew scored a cracking equaliser eight from time after being set up by an audacious captain Asamoah Gyan back heel. But a point which would have been richly merited for James Kwesi Appiah could not be earned as Brooks stroke to break the Black Stars hearts and earn President Barack Obama's boys revenge over Ghana who eliminated the Americans four years ago in South Africa. Earlier, German mercilessly massacred 10-man Portugal 4-0 to take stranglehold of a tough Group G. Thomas Muller got the first hat-trick of this exciting World Cup while Ronaldo was reduced to a pale shadow of his superstar self. Mats Hummels thumped home a header against hapless Portu ...

Ghana skipper Asamoah Gyan believes his young stars will prove too strong for the United States when the sides meet in Natal on Monday in what could be a key Group G clash. The Black Stars beat the United States at the past two World Cups including a knockout round victory in South Africa four years ago when Ghana narrowly missed claiming an historic semi-final place. While warning against complacency ahead of meeting Jurgen Klinsmann's side, Gyan, the Black Stars' record goalscorer, feels technical supremacy will trump the Americans' reputation for grinding out results. "They're coming for revenge. Mentally they…
Match Preview: Ghana targets hat-trick against USA Ghana’s Black Stars will be hoping to continue their dominance over the United States at the World Cup as both teams take the centre stage for the second Group G game Monday night at the Estadio das Dunas Natal. Ghana emerged victors in their past two meetings against the Americans as they sent the United States out of the last two World Cups in Germnay and South Africa. However, Jurgen Klismann and his squad are confident they can halt the dominance of the Ghanaians with a vital win in tonight’s meeting. U.S. optimism has indeed been bolstered by victories over Azerbaijan, Turkey and Nigeria in the recent final set of test matches before heading to Brazil. Klinsmann served some hint at Sunday’s pre-match conference about Kyle Beckerman, who started against the Super Eagles and very well could reprise his role on Monday. That would give the U.S. extra cover against Ghana’s fearsome counterattack and offer more freedom to Bradley and Jermaine Jones ...
Big match feature: Iran v Nigeria Nigeria will go into their first group game against Iran looking to bury the ghosts of World Cup past by winning their first game at the football showpiece event for the first time since France1998 . Coach Stephen Keshi, in particular will look to make history as the first Nigerian to captain and coach a Nigerian team to the World Cup finals by nicking a first win in six attempts as the Super Eagles look to lay a marker in Group F of the 2014 Fifa World Cup. Iran will be lead by Portuguese coach Carlos Queiroz, who is a proven tactician and has molded a strong defensive unit with Team Melli. The Iranian team have been set up to be difficult to beat and usually use the counter-attacking style of play to devastating effect. The 61-year-old Portuguese coach, who has had stints in England, Spain, the United States, Japan and South Africa, will be leading Iran into their first World Cup since 2006 and will look to build on their recent progress with a strong showing against Ni ...

On October 15, 1985, the CBS Evening News in the United States broadcast less than two minutes of footage from a disturbance in Athlone, a township in the Cape Flats, outside of Cape Town, South Africa. Viewers watched as armed men shot from crates on the bed of an orange railway truck into a crowd of students. Two children and a young adult were killed, 11 year old Michael Miranda, Shaun Magmoed aged 15, 21 year old Jonathan Claasen and many more wounded as security forces used shotguns to attack the crowd. No tear gas was used in an attempt to clear the crowd, nor were rubber bullets employed. The videotape that held the incident had been rushed to the airport where it was flown out of the reach of government censors. The broadcast was credited with contributing to the growing opposition to Apartheid, especially in America. Because security forces had either hidden their identity or were concealed in crates, the attack became known as the Trojan Horse Incident. This incident was filmed by, Wim de Vos a ...

It is just over few months that the Economic Freedom Fighters has been born, but within that short space of time she has successfully pinpointed the basic assumptions in our struggle, namely that: 1. The illiterate and semi-literate masses of the African people are the key, the core and cornerstone of the struggle for democracy in this country. 2. African Nationalism is the only liberatory creed that can weld these masses who are members of heterogeneous tribes into a solid, disciplined 'and united fighting force; provide them with a loyalty higher than that of the tribe, and give formal expression to their desire to be a nation. 3. The struggle in South Africa is part of the greater struggle throughout the Continent for the restoration to the African people of the effective control or their land. The ultimate goal of our struggle therefore, is the formation of a United States of Africa.

China pivot fuels Eurasian century… Exit the Petrodollar, enter the Gas-o-Yuan…A specter is haunting Washington, an unnerving vision of a Sino-Russian alliance wedded to an expansive symbiosis of trade and commerce across much of the Eurasian land mass - at the expense of the United States. And no wonder Washington is anxious. That alliance is already a done deal in a variety of ways: through the BRICS group of emerging powers (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa); at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, the Asian counterweight to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization; inside the Group of 20; and via the 120-member-nation Non-Aligned Movement (NAM). Trade and commerce are just part of the future bargain. Synergies in the development of new military technologies beckon as well. After Russia's Star Wars-style, ultra-sophisticated S-500 air defense anti-missile system comes online in 2018, Beijing is sure to want a version of it. Meanwhile, Russia is about to sell dozens of state-of-the-ar ...
Bishop Brandon Spiker The Holy Spirit is the dynamic force behind Brandon Spiker Ministries: At a time when other children at his age were watching cartoons and playing Hide n’ Seek, Brandon was seeking for a greater relationship with God. At the age of six, this small little boy gave his heart and life to Jesus Christ and had a dynamic experience with the Holy Spirit. After that there was a transformation in Brandon’s life that other people began to notice. He would tell his mother, “We need to go see a certain person. I need to pray for them”. Brandon started preaching at the tender age of sixteen at local youth groups across the state of Florida. Now in his twenties Brandon has led hundreds of thousands of people to Jesus Christ and has preached in over twelve states in the United States, some of which were the greatest churches in America. He has also preached in Mexico, The Republic of South Africa, Finland, Estonia, Moldova, Norway and Israel. Many lives have been changed in the meetings bec ...
note: A.J. Langguth is the author of "Driven West: Andrew Jackson and the Trail of Tears to the Civil War."  (CNN) -- With the midterm elections over, it's time for Americans to leave behind the recent attempts to demonize an entire people. We needn't look to Nazi Germany or apartheid South Africa for examples of the labeling and abusing of others. The suspicions promoted about Hispanics as criminals and Muslims as terrorists were only the latest reminders of discrimination throughout our own history. We may be ashamed later, but our apologies usually come too late. The targets keep changing. Abigail Adams, admirable in many ways, was violently hostile to the French, "Was there ever," she demanded, "a more basely designing and insidious people?" Had it been up to her, the United States might have gone to war with France in 1798, barely 15 years after French support had made America's independence possible. In 1850, voters in New Hampshire refused to delete the provision in their state constitution that b ...

BARRED FROM USA!!! Mos Def has been banned from the USA! Details are sketchy, but the ish hit the fan once concert promoters in Boston found out he wasn't allowed back in the country. Said promoters released a statement saying, We regret to inform you that due to immigration / legal issues Yasiin Bey is unable to enter back into the United States and his upcoming U.S. tour has been canceled, including May 15th, Together Boston’s show at The Wilbur Theatre. Individual ticket refunds for this show are available at point of sale. No one knows what the "issues" are, but Mos Def has gone on record trashing policies of the USA. Remember the video he shot where he called out the government for their horrible treatment of the detainees at Guantanamo Bay? Also, in March, he told Rolling Stone that he feels more comfortable in South Africa than Brooklyn. “Sure, [Cape Town is] a beautiful place, you got the ocean, the mountain, the botanical garden, the beautiful people, the history, the culture, the struggl ...

Address by the late President Julius Nyerere. National Assembly of the Republic of South Africa. Cape Town, October 16, 1997 Madam Speaker and, I think I may say, Comrade President and Comrade Vice President, ladies and gentlemen. I have told you already how I felt when you asked me to come and talk here. And then I got the message that you were coming. Of course, I am happy you are here, but what do I say in your presence in this House? This is not my first time here. I have been here before and I have thanked you, but I must thank you again. For me to come here to this Chamber and address you is a dream which you have helped me to make true.

So, Mr. President, and all your colleagues, I say thank you very much for making this possible. Now, as for sharing my thoughts with you: my thoughts, unfortunately, don't change, so a lot of what I am going to say some ...
Top 10 armies in Afrca: 1. South Africa: South Africa (South Africa has the most powerful army in Africa; it has more harmful weapons than any other country in Africa; it is the only African country that was trying to create the Nuclear weapon but was stopped by the US. The South African National Defence Force (SANDF) this includes: South African Army, South African Navy, South African Air Force and South African Military Health Service.

John G. Lake. John G. Lake was known as God's "Apostle to Africa". Born in Canada in 1870, his family soon relocated to the United States, where he grew up. His healing and preaching ministry spanned the years 1898 (when he saw his wife instantly healed under the ministry of John Alexander Dowie) until his death in 1935. In 1908, God sent him to Africa, where his anointed miracle ministry resulted in what has been described as "the most extensive and powerful missionary movement in all Africa." As Gordon Lindsay wrote, "during that time he spent five history-making years in South Africa, engaged in a ministry which in some respects rivalled that of the Early Church." Upon his return to America, Lake established a ministry in Spokane, Washington which resulted in no less than 100,000 astounding miracles of healing within the space of five or six years. He then established a similar work in Portland, Oregon, which also attracted widespread attention. Like Smith Wigglesworth, John G. Lake had already experie ...

WORLD PRESS FREEDOM NAMIBIA 2014 The World Press Freedom Index is a reference tool that is based on seven criteria: the level of abuses, the extent of pluralism, media independence, the environment and self-censorship, the legislative framework, transparency and infrastructure,” said Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire. It makes governments face their responsibilities by providing Civil Society with an objective measure, and provides international bodies with a good governance indicator to guide their decisions. The 2014 World Press Freedom Index covers 180 countries of the world. Finland tops the index for the fourth year running, closely followed by Netherlands and Norway. Sadly Namibia has lost three places and is now featured at position 22. The 2014 Index spotlights major declines in media freedom in such varied countries as the United States, Central African Republic and Guatemala and, on the other hand, marked improvements in Ecuador, Bolivia and South Africa.

When speaking she compared the likes of Mr. Toussaint Louverture, one of the Founding Fathers of Haiti, Mr. Nelson Mandela of South Africa, Dr. Martin Luther King of the United States, Mother Theresa of India, among others. She encouraged our young leaders to look introspectively and display the courage that they have in common with these great leaders.

In 2005, Goldman Sachs Investment Bank forecast that Nigeria will be the 20th largest economy in the world by 2025 and the 12th largest by 2050; ahead of Italy, Canada and South Korea. Having identified Brazil, Russia, India and China as four emergent powerhouses of the world economy referred to as the BRICS; it included Nigeria among "the Next Eleven" countries of Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Iran, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Philippines, South Korea, Turkey, and Vietnam. At the U.S.-Nigeria Trade and Investment Forum organised by the Nigerians in Diaspora Organisation of the Americas (NIDOA) in Washington D.C. in 2012, President Barack Obama of the United States acknowledged Nigeria not only as a strategic centre of gravity in Africa; he went further to proclaim the country "the world's next economic giant." Early this year, with the rebasing of the country's GDP, Nigeria emerged as the biggest economy in Africa, surpassing South Africa.

As our Ambassador Gaspard reflects on what 'Freedom Day' means to himself and the American people, we invite you (again) to share your reflections. "It’s remarkable that we are already commemorating the 20th anniversary of the birth of democracy in this extraordinary country. South Africa has come a long distance in an incredibly short period of time. Sometimes we forget just how terribly oppressive this society was and lose perspective on all of the great gains that have been attained. But at this moment when we recognize all of the sacrifices that have been made to arrive here, it is also the perfect opportunity to pause and use this period of reflection as a guide for what still needs to be done on infrastructure, education, healthcare and security. As someone who grew up in the United States and who is acutely aware of the struggles that we have had in perfecting our own union and creating a more equal society, I can recognize that South Africa is still a beacon and an example of what is possible. I ...

The naira rose against the dollar on Wednesday as Chevron's local unit sold the United States currency and offshore funds bought local debt, foreign exchange market dealers said. According to a Reuters report, the naira traded 0.34 per cent higher at N161.60 to the dollar on Wednesday afternoon, from Tuesday's close of N162.15. Dealers said Chevron sold about $18m to banks, while offshore investors participating in a debt auction on Wednesday sold an undisclosed amount of dollars. The Central Bank of Nigeria was due to auction N200bn ($1.2bn) in treasury bills and bonds on Wednesday. Offshore funds, dealers said, had renewed their appetite for Nigerian assets after the country rebased its Gross Domestic Product, overtaking South Africa as the continent's biggest economy and making it a more attractive destination for investors. The naira had about two weeks ago rallied to its strongest level in almost six weeks after the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation sold some dollars to the local market. The lo ...
Chiropractic is popular all over the world. Although the chiropractic profession was founded in the United States in 1895, spinal manipulation has a long history of use in China. By the 1960's, it had spread to Canda, New Zealand, and South Africa. More recently, it has extended across Asia, Europe, Latin America, and Australia. In fact, in Australia, one in four adults have consulted with a chiropractor, and nearly 40% of the elderly population rely on complementary and alternative medicine such as chiropractic.
During the 1950s and 1960s Anarchists participated in the Civil Rights Movement in the United States. In the 1960s and 1970s Anarchists organized against the American war in Viet Nam. Uprisings in Paris, Mexico City and other placed in 1968 helped spark a growing interest in Anarchist ideas. After the collapse of Leninism in 1989, Anarchist movements appeared in South Africa/Azania (Workers Solidarity Federation), Nigeria (Awareness League), Turkey, and Lebanon and the movement in Latin America, Asia, Australia and Eastern Europe is growing. Anarchists in Africa are organizing against post-apartheid dictatorships, labor repression and racism. Anarchists have organized movements in opposition to the 1991 'Gulf War' and in solidarity with the indigenous rebellion of the Zapatistas in Chiapas, Mexico. In recent years Anarchists have participated in immigrants rights campaigns in Europe and the United States. Anarchists have organized against “workfare” (Called the “Job Seekers Allowance” in Britain), ...

On this day in Royal Australian Navy History. 27 March 1885 ADML Sir George Tryon, CB, presented his proposals on the defence of Australia to the Governments of the Australian Colonies. The report recommended one fleet for all the colonies and New Zealand. 1907 CMDR William Clarkson, ANF, and CMDR W. J. Colquhoun, DSO, ANF, departed Australia for Japan to conduct an in depth study of the Imperial Japanese Navy methods of ship construction, administration, and training. The pair then also visited the United States, Canada, and England, to observe similar activities. This information was then brought back to Australia to help with the further development of the Australian Naval Forces. Clarkson and Colquhoun were both ex State Navy officers. Colquhoun had been awarded the DSO, and twice Mentioned in Dispatches, for bravery and leadership while attached to the RN Brigade in South Africa in 1899-1900, while Clarkson had served onboard HMCS PROTECTOR in the Boxer Rebellion in 1900, and later went onto become a ...
Hey Mr Zuma, you and your government don't represent me. You represent your own interests. "One day we will be praying for the defeat of the ANC government. You are disgraceful. You have... a huge majority – that is nothing. Watch out ANC government. Watch out!” Tutu said former president Nelson Mandela once told the United States not to tell him how to choose his friends when he was challenged about South Africa's close ties with Cuba. "When you think Madiba [was] able to say to [the] most powerful country, look you don't choose our friends for us... To say that to the US about Cuba, it takes something, but he did and they did nothing. If anything, their respect for him grew." Tutu said he would not invite the Dalai Lama to South Africa again. "I don't think I would put him through this kind of thing again," he said.
Same-sex marriage (also known as *** marriage) is marriage between two people of the same biological sex and/or gender identity. Legal recognition of same-sex marriage or the possibility to perform a same-sex marriage is sometimes referred to as marriage equality or equal marriage, particularly by supporters.[1][2][3][4][5] The legalization of same-sex marriage is characterized as "redefining marriage" by many opponents.[6][7][8] The first laws in modern times enabling same-sex marriage were enacted during the first decade of the 21st century. As of 19 August 2013, fifteen countries (Argentina, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark,[nb 1] France, Iceland, Netherlands,[nb 2] New Zealand,[nb 3] Norway, Portugal, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, Uruguay) and several sub-national jurisdictions (parts of Mexico and the United States) allow same-sex couples to marry. A law has been passed by the Westminster Parliament in the United Kingdom, effective in England and Wales, which will be fully in force on 29 March 2014.[9 ...
Hungry for disaster Rowan Philp “PEOPLE don’t want to hear this,” American legal giant Alan Dershowitz said on CNN last week, “but South Africa is a failed country.” He’s wrong—actually, people do want to hear this. At least, millions of media consumers in the United Kingdom and the United States do. As a journalist, the only work-related calls I get from my colleagues overseas are these: “Hey, do you know anyone who can tell us about that South African car that shoots flames at hijackers?”, and “We’ve heard land is to be confiscated from whites in South Africa, just like Zimbabwe—do you have any contacts who will speak about this disaster?” In the media tent in Qunu ahead of Nelson Mandela’s funeral, I told half a dozen foreign journalists stories like these: American researchers have found that, since 2003, South Africa has recorded the fastest rise in life expectancy in modern history, largely as a result of the belated HIV drug roll-out; that a black student at UKZN has inv ...

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — South African prosecutors pressing a murder charge against Oscar Pistorius secured a meeting Thursday with Apple officials in the United States over accessing potentially crucial evidence on the double-amputee athlete's locked iPhone, they said. Pistorius claimed he forgot the password for the cellphone, one of a number found at his upscale villa after he shot dead girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp Feb. 14, 2013. Investigators have been seeking help from Apple through the F.B.I. since last year to get access to the phone, a spokesman for South Africa's National Prosecuting Authority said. Investigators from South Africa would now meet with Apple officials Thursday at the tech giant's headquarters in California, spokesman Nathi Mncube said.
are more optimistic about future on the world stage than its own citizens, according to a global survey on the country’s image. About 17 percent of foreigners who took part in the survey believe China could become the No. 1 global power while only 13 percent of Chinese think so. The online survey, which drew responses from 3,017 citizens in seven countries — the United States, the United Kingdom, India, South Africa, Russia, Brazil and China — was conducted by the Center for International Communication Studies of China Foreign Languages Publishing Administration, the Charhar Institute, and Millward Brown.

Cherries: Nature's Anti-inflammatory Sleep Aid By Case Adams, Naturopath Several studies have now confirmed that cherries not only increase sleep duration and sleep quality, but they are anti-inflammatory. The newest study comes from researchers at Spain's University of Extremadura. They tested 30 people – ten between 20 and 30 years old, ten between 35 and 55 years old and ten between 65 and 85 years old. The researchers randomly divided the subjects into two groups. They were given either a tart cherry juice drink or a placebo with cherry flavor twice a day. Those who drank the cherry juice experienced substantially better sleep quality – measured by sleep efficiency, awakenings, and total sleep time. Moreover, the researchers found that the older group experienced better improvements in sleep quality that the younger groups. Another study included scientists from the United States (Nicholas Institute of Sports Medicine), the UK (Northumbria University and the University of Surrey) and South Africa ...
Ghanaian women being forced into prostitution in Middle Eastern countries Source: The Finder Date: 19-02-2014 Time: 06:02:13:am The United States government says Ghanaian women are being forced into prostitution and forced labour in foreign countries, particularly in the Middle East. According to the US State Department’s Trafficking in Persons Report 2013, Ghanaian women migrating to the Middle East to work are forced into prostitution upon their arrival. The report attributed the phenomenon to the, emergence of fraudulent recruitment agencies that advertised locally for jobs abroad, generally in the domestic service and retail sectors. “Ghanaian women and children are recruited and transported to Nigeria, Cote d’Ivoire, Burkina Faso, The Gambia, South Africa, Israel, Syria, Lebanon, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Russia, France, the United Kingdom, Germany, and the United States for forced labour and prostitution,” it said. The report also revealed that women and girls voluntari ...

       In Zimbabwe, President Robert Mugabe last July threatened to behead homosexuals, describing those in the LGBT community as ‘worse than pigs, goats and birds.’ He also accused other African countries of becoming more tolerant of homosexuality, because they have become reliant on European countries for aid and support. Throughout the month of July 2013, the President publicly condemned and attacked LGBT individuals seven times. In Nigeria, President Goodluck Jonathan signed a bill in January that criminalizes same-sex relationships. The bill contains penalties of up to 14 years in prison for those who engage in same-sex marriage, and bans *** marriage, same-sex ‘amorous relationships’ and members of *** rights groups. The international community criticized the new law, with countries such as the United States and Britain saying they were concerned it gives room for the violation of Human Rights. South Africa, legalized same-sex marriage way back in 2006, becoming the fifth country in th ...

The Iranian Navy: A Symbolic Show of Force in the Atlantic (Because they can) Summary Tehran announced Feb. 8 that it had dispatched a frigate and a supply ship to the North Atlantic Ocean, where they will approach U.S. maritime borders. This is not the first time the Iranians have announced their intent to deploy naval vessels close to the United States. Iran made two such declarations in 2011 but never followed through. However, following the most recent announcement, Iranian Adm. Afshin Rezayee Haddad said the Iranian fleet is actually underway, already approaching the South Atlantic Ocean through waters off the coast of South Africa. The Iranian decision to deploy naval vessels to the North Atlantic is largely symbolic; it does not pose any real military risk. Iran will use the deployment to show the flag in a non-threatening manner, looking to appease its hard-liners who are dubious about the U.S.-Iran nuclear talks. Analysis Given the ongoing nuclear negotiations between Iran and the P-5+1 group -- ...

The announcement came hours after Iran's Supreme Leader said the United States would overthrow the Iranian government if it could, adding Washington had a "controlling and meddlesome" attitude towards the Islamic Republic, Iranian media reported. The commander of Iran's Northern Navy Fleet, Admiral Afshin Rezayee Haddad, said Saturday the vessels have already begun the journey to the Atlantic Ocean via waters near South Africa and that “this move has a message.” The Islamic Republic considers the move as a response to US naval deployments n ...
Wikipedia: "Jaja Wachuku as Foreign Affairs Minister of Nigeria preferred quiet consultation, especially with the two major Anglo-American powers: Great Britain and the United States - in search of solutions to continental and international problems. For example, there was a lot of hue and cry as a result of the Rivonia Trial in South Africa in 1963 following the arrest of Walter Sisulu, Ahmed Kathrada, Govan Mbeki, Denis Goldberg, Raymond Mhlaba, Andrew Mlangeni, Lionel Bernstein and others. They and Nelson Mandela, who was serving term on his 1962 conviction, were charged with "sabotage and... conspiracy to overthrow the Government by revolution and by assisting an armed invasion of South Africa by foreign troops." These charges were treasonable and carried the death penalty. Jaja Wachuku quietly invited Lord Head, the British High Commissioner in Lagos and also United States' Ambassador Joseph Palmer II - and strongly urged them to intercede with their governments to prevail on the apartheid regime in ...
* Big pharma firms push for US action against India over patent worries - Global pharmaceutical firms are pressuring the United States to act against India to stop more local companies producing up to a dozen new varieties of cheap generic drugs still on-patent, sources with direct knowledge of the matter said. An Indian government committee is reviewing patented drugs of foreign firms to see if so-called compulsory licenses, which in effect break exclusivity rights, can be issued for some of them to bring down costs, two senior government officials told Reuters. The drugs that are part of the review process are used for treating cancer, diabetes, hepatitis and HIV, said the sources, declining to give details. No timeline has been given for completion of the review process. Emerging Markets, from South Africa to China and India, are battling to bring down healthcare costs and boost access to drugs to treat diseases such as cancer, HIV/AIDS and hepatitis. Western drugmakers, including Pfizer Inc, Novartis ...

COMPROMISE AND COWARDICE IN THE CHURCH (Frontline) People pleasers make traitors (John 12:43). "For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? If I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ." Galatians 1:10 The Sanctity of Life This Friday is being observed as a National Day of Repentance for the national sin of abortion.

In a period of just under three months, Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) president Peter Mutharika has been to three hospitals in South Africa and the US seeking medical attention, Malawi News can reveal. The DPP presidential candidate has for three times sought permission from the High Court where he is answering treason and perjury charges to allow him to travel abroad for medical reasons. But in his letters of request for permission to travel abroad, Mutharika says the medical “check-ups” are routine.“…On Tuesday 5th November 2013, I applied to this Honourable Court for variation of my bail conditions referred in Paragraph 6 above to enable me access my passport and travel to South Africa for medical checkup which was duly granted,” reads part of the affidavit. It further adds: “I normally attend annual routine medical checkups in the United States. However, in the view of the fact that I am undergoing criminal accusations, I arranged therefore (the medical checkup) to be done in the Repu ...
Another African Hunting Story From: Chuck Shook Cat's Dad: After arriving in South Africa I spent five days in Kruger National Park with friends; Raymond Le Clue and wife Vina. Raymond is a South African policeman and they are quite different from the United States police here. Each South African policeman has jurisdiction anywhere in South Africa where the flag is flown. At that time it included South West Africa that is called Namibia today. After a nice rest with my friends, I flew up to Rhodesia where there was a war going on. This was in 1976. Everyone was telling me that I should go see Victoria Falls along the Zambia River. I purchased a ticket when I got to Salisbury, the Rhodesian capital. It was cheaper to buy a ticket in local money rather than purchase it with USA dollars. Anyway, I boarded an old English 2 engine military plane to go to the falls. As we took off the pilot put the plane into a hard left bank and spiraled straight up. I looked around and all of the passengers were military me . ...
January 19: “Claiming Freedom” (Martin Luther King, Jr. Sunday) Rev. Jennifer Brooks The 20th century was notable for the “self-determination” movements that claimed freedom in India, led by Mahatma Gandhi; in South Africa, led by Nelson Mandela; in the Czech Republic, led by Václav Havel; and in the United States, led by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. What makes people willing to risk claiming freedom? How do we stand in solidarity with all people everywhere who claim freedom for themselves and their children?
The diamond is composed solely of pure carbon and is the hardest substance known, being No. 10 on the Mohl scale. It is found in South Africa, Brazil, India, Borneo, in the Ural Mountains, and in the United States. The ancient supply of diamonds came probably from India. Although we hear of diamonds in very early times, yet the ancient Indian mines were apparently the first source of supply and continued so until diamonds were found in Borneo, which was only in small amounts, and later more largely in Brazil. The Brazilian mines were discovered in 1727 and were later mined extensively. Mr. Edwin W. Streeter, the London jeweler, in his book published in 1879, states that about 1845 there were twenty-five thousand people engaged in diamond digging in Brazil. In South Africa diamonds were first found in 1867. The first diggings — they could hardly be called mines — were along the Vaal River. These river diggings were of considerable extent,

Before the first Cricket World Cup The first ever international cricket match was played between Canada and the United States, on the 24 and 25 September 1844. [2] However, the first credited Test match was played in 1877 between Australia and England , and the two teams competed regularly for The Ashes in subsequent years. South Africa was admitted to Test status in 1889. [3] Representative cricket teams were selected to tour each other, resulting in bilateral competition. Cricket was also included as an Olympic sport at the 1900 Paris Games , where Great Britain defeated France to win the gold medal . [4] This was the only appearance of cricket at the Summer Olympics . The first multilateral competition at international level was the 1912 Triangular Tournament , a Test cricket tournament played in England between all three Test-playing nations at the time: England, Australia and South Africa. The event was not a success: the summer was exceptionally wet, making play difficult on damp uncovered pitches, ...

Much of Africa has the potential for great power production -- whether from hydropower at the Inga Dams, geothermal resources in East Africa, offshore hydrocarbon resources in the Gulf of Guinea or South Africa's coal. A number of internationally backed aid projects and programs are aiming to increase electricity access in sub-Saharan Africa. Rajiv Shah, head of USAID, announced in December 2013 that the United States would include parts of the Inga Dam scheme, two hydroelectric dams on the Congo River, as a part of President Barack Obama's $7 billion Power Africa program, an initiative aiming to double sub-Saharan Africa's access to electricity. However, production centers are often geographically separated from demand centers, and many cities do not have sizable distribution networks. Sub-Saharan Africa will not be able to quickly build up the infrastructure needed to distribute the electricity generated at the most promising -- and remote -- projects. While many of the aid projects are meant to give mo ...

Happy Birthday Amakhosi Kaizer Chiefs was founded on 7 January 1970 shortly after the return of Kaizer "Chincha Guluva" Motaung from the United States where he played as a striker for the Atlanta Chiefs of the North American Soccer League (NASL). Now the Club's Executive, Chairman Kaizer Motaung looks back after 44 years, "This day will forever be special in the history of Kaizer Chiefs. It is a moment of pride for the Club and the football fraternity to see the Club growing from strength to strength. I would like to thank God for this moment and may we all use this birthday as the Amakhosi family as an inspiration to reach for our dreams as individuals and a Team," said a visibly happy Motaung.

The message of best wishes on their anniversary have been pouring in from various quarters; kaizerchiefs.com caught up with some of the Glamour Boys at The Village ahead of this important date in the history of ...
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.
Black is Beautiful Afros, locks and naturals – all symbols of a powerful movement that began with the word of John S. Rock, an African-American abolitionist who was the first black person to be admitted to the bar of the Supreme Court of the United States. Rock would paraphrase the term “Black is Beautiful” during a speech back in 1858. Some 100 years later, African Americans would begin a movement illustrating Rock’s words, which encouraged men and women to stop straightening their hair and attempting to lighten or bleach their skin with creams. The Black is Beautiful movement became the most prominent in the writings of author Steve Biko in his book, the “Black Consciousness Movement” in South Africa. The book and the movement aimed to dispel the notion in many world cultures that black people’s natural features such as skin color, facial features and hair are inherently ugly. It was meant to dispel the stigma of internalized racism, which caused such things as “paper bag parties” in t ...

From Saturday's Ashland Times-Gazette: I like to read the lists of the top stories of the previous year as reported on the pages of the local newspaper This year, I decided to make my own review of the remarkable accounts of 2013, with a bit of commentary tucked in alongside the headline. I’ll start with a recent story - the death of Nelson Mandela. I’ve never been to South Africa, but I’ve read his biographies and have a deep respect for the man and the role he played in the deconstruction of apartheid. Mandela taught the watching world a great deal about redemption and reconciliation, and we mourn the loss of Mandiba, the father of his nation. As he taught us, “to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” In November, we marked an anniversary of our own country’s sorrow, as fifty years have passed since the assassination of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the United States president who died before his true potential co ...

Tribute to the Father of Rainbow Nation by Anton X. Rajinthrakumar The “Rainbow Nation” has lost one of her most famous sons. In fact, it’s not only South Africa but also the entire world mourns the loss of an iconic political figure of modern times. The new South Africa has lost her founding father and it is also a time to truly appreciate the enormous sacrifices and remarkable achievements of Nelson Mandela. I write this humble tribute to Mandela with profound respect. I was born in Jaffna in 1964 the year Mandela was sentenced to life in prison. This was also the year the Civil Rights Act was passed in the United States. We now live in a ‘global village’, an increasingly interconnected, interdependent and rapidly changing world. I find it more fitting to pay a tribute to Mandela as an ordinary small town Jaffna man, a Patrician, a South Asian immigrant and a proud Canadian of rich Tamil Catholic heritage, who made super multi-cultural mega city of Toronto my new home two decades ago after fle ...
Presenting Lebo Mashile The poet, performer, actress, presenter and producer Lebogang Mashile, the daughter of exiled South Africans, was born in the United States in 1979. At the age of sixteen, she and her family returned to their home country. It was while she was studying Law and International Relations at Wits University in Johannesburg that the desire to work as an artist took hold on her. Mashile regards poetry’s expressive powers as the most effective tool to bring about those changes that are needed in the aftermath of socio-political changes in South Africa. Mashile began to achieve recognition as one of South Africa’s most popular young artists in 2002 when her hip-hop inspired poetry captured a large audience.

The first human-to-human heart transplant was performed on December 3, 1967 at the Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town, South Africa. Surgeon Christiaan Barnard, who trained in the United States and at the University of Cape Town, performed the revolutionary operation. Lewis Washkansky, a South African grocer received the transplant having been diagnosed as suffering and dying from diabetes and incurable heart disease. Remarkably, he was 53 years old at the time. Washkansky received the first human heart from Denise Darvall, a 25-year-old bank clerk who was fatally injured and left brain-dead following an automobile accident the day before. Lewis Washkansky heat recipient Her father gave permission for her heart to be given to Washkansky and she was removed from life support. Dr. Barnard prepared for the opportunity to do the surgery on a human by performing a number of experimental heart transplants involving dogs. When the time came to finally perform the operation on Washkansky, he led a 30-member sur ...

(Via Grandson) Nigeria: US sends Special Envoy Special Envoys from the United States and South Africa are flying to Nigeria as World Leaders step up efforts to avert an all-out Civil War. The US envoy for Nigeria was expected in the capital Abuja on Sunday. It follows a mission by foreign ministers from West Africa and the Southern Africa and an appeal by UN chief Ban Ki-moon to end the violence that has gripped the country. The fighting started a week ago when President Jonathan accused the former Presidents Olusegun Obasanjo and Ibrahim Babangida of attempting a coup. Both Mr Obasanjo and Mr Babangida deny this, and have in turn accused Mr Jonathan of carrying out a vicious purge of the opposition. The clashes have left hundreds dead and sent tens of thousands of people fleeing to UN bases for protection or to safer parts of the country. Nigeria has been blighted by ethnic divisions, corruption and poverty since it won independence from Britain in 1960. Foreign governments, including the US, Britain, G ...
FOREIGN AFFAIRS January/February 2014 COMMENT The Ever-Emerging Markets Why Economic Forecasts Fail Ruchir Sharma RUCHIR SHARMA is head of Emerging Markets and Global Macro at Morgan Stanley Investment Management and the author of Breakout Nations: In Pursuit of the Next Economic Miracles. In the middle of the last decade, the average growth rate in Emerging Markets hit over seven percent a year for the first time ever, and forecasters raced to hype the implications. China would soon surpass the United States as an economic power, they said, and India, with its vast population, or Vietnam, with its own spin on authoritarian capitalism, would be the next China. Searching for the political fallout, pundits predicted that Beijing would soon lead the new and rising bloc of the BRICs -- Brazil, Russia, India, and China -- to ultimate supremacy over the fading powers of the West. Suddenly, the race to coin the next hot acronym was on, and CIVETS (Colombia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Egypt, Turkey, and South Africa) em ...

In education news this afternoon, did you know that the Nelson Mandela Alternative High School is the only one that bears the name of the late leader of South Africa? That won't be the case come next school year. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg says NYC will add a new school in Brooklyn making it the 2nd school in the United States.
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.
The embarrassment of that fake interpreter supposedly signing Obama’s speech in South Africa the other day reminded me of that cold December night in 1977 when we arrived with Jimmy Carter in Warsaw, Poland. At the time, Poland’s masses were still fiercely huddled behind the Iron Curtain. At the arrival ceremony at the airport Carter was scheduled to say a few carefully chosen words during a short stopover on our way to Iran, India and Saudi Arabia. But instead, what happened was simultaneously politically offensive and hilarious. The State Department had hired Steven Seymore for $150 dollars to provide the public address/broadcast translation of Carter’s remarks. What the Poles heard Carter say via Seymore’s butchered translation included, “Are you from Poland? I want to sleep with you. I want to learn about your desires for the future. I desire for the Poles. This morning when I left the United States never to return.” Needless to say Seymore’s use of words suggesting Jimmy Carter was inte ...
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 ...
Joint Defence Statement: “Bangladesh at the Precipice” December 11, 2013 By Martin Secrett 9BR copy The following is a joint defence statement from Steven Kay QC, John Cammegh and Toby Cadman concerning the sentence to death of Mr. Abdul Quader Mollah by the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court. A signed PDF version of the statement may be downloaded here: 131211 Defence Statement Mollah. The timing of the planned execution of Abdul Quader Mollah is a disgracefully cynical attempt to bury bad news as the international media concentrates on events in South Africa. The contrast between a man who stood for and dedicated his life to reconciliation and forgiveness with the behavior of the Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina could not be greater. The international community now stands united against this execution. The UN, EU, Britain, United States and Australian governments, to name a few, have in the past day called for a halt to this unwarranted sentence that serves no purpose, other than to div ...

Saint Nelson Mandela: “If there is a country that has committed unspeakable atrocities in the world, it is the United States of America.” — Nelson Mandela, Jan. 29, 2003 Nelson Mandela, the former terrorist-turned-compromiser and the so-called “father of democracy” who served as president of South Africa, hated America. But progressive liberals loved him — none more so than President Barack Obama, who ordered that flags at the White House and all Federal buildings fly at half-staff through Monday, following Mandela’s death last Thursday at age 95. But that was only the start. Obama, like so many black celebrities and members of the white media, has personalized his relationship with Mandela beyond all reason: “He no longer belongs to us; he belongs to the ages,” Obama said upon learning of Mandela’s death. The President added, “We will not likely see the likes of Nelson Mandela again.” I have no doubt about that last statement. Can you think of another terrorist bent on killing and ...

If Mr. Ronald Reagan, president of the United States vetoed (as we now recall) US Congress decision to impose the late1980's economic sanctions on the white segregationist government of South Africa, and, meanwhile, under his leadership, the US department of State added the African National Congress (ANC) to the foreign terrorist groups' list... and, and added Nelson Mandela's name to the terrorist watch list, it is " safe to say " that Ronald Reagan's diplomacy had supported the autocratic white segregationist regime of Apartheid agaisnt the black majority. Please, pay No Attention to Newt Gingrich, trying to clean up his "cowboy" friend's tainted records! P.S. I was 12 years or so when this was unfolding, but I remember these facts without any need of book reading...
8 Photos You Didn't See From Obama's Trip to South Africa looking it gets better than the cover shot folks... ~Wonderland~ On Tuesday, conservative news outlets in the United States decided that the best way to commemorate the life of Nelson Mandela, and to report on the memorial services in his honor, was to manufacture a controversy about an AFP photo of President Barack Obama shooting a selfie with Danish Prime Minister Helle Thorning Schmidt. According to Fox News, the “international incident” was so bad that, “The tsk-tisk-ing could be heard across continents.” Liberal news outlets countered with a photograph from former President George W. Bush’s Instagram feed, taken at the same memorial, in which he’s seen posing with pop star Bono. Two things were lost amid the nonsensical partisan wrangling. First, the furor shamefully overshadowed the memorial service itself, and the heartfelt messages that were delivered by Mandela’s family and colleagues. Second, such outcries overlook the close ...

The ANC was founded by Lionel Bernstein, Bob Hepple, Dennis Goldberg, Arthur Goldreich, Hazel Goldreich and James Kantor, with a few African front men -- Nelson Mandela, Walter Sisulu, Govan Mbeki (father of Thabo Mbeki), Raymond Mhlaba, and Ahmed Kathrada. In this, the ANC followed the model the Jews established when they founded the NAACP in the United States, with the exception that the ANC was a much more violent and openly communist organization. These Jews and their African National Congress received funding and support from both the Soviet Union and the US CIA. In particular, Ruth First, the Jewish wife of Jewish Soviet ...
The ultimate honour in life. Not the Nobel Prize, Not having cities, airports, stadiums, and children named after you, But having a poem written in your honour by Dr Maya Angelou, the greatest living poet. Madiba, this one is for you: "His day is done. Is done. The news came on the wings of a wind, reluctant to carry its burden. Nelson Mandela’s day is done. The news, expected and still unwelcome, reached us in the United States, and suddenly our world became somber. Our skies were leadened. His day is done. We see you, South African people standing speechless at the slamming of that final door through which no traveler returns. Our spirits reach out to you Bantu, Zulu, Xhosa, Boer. We think of you and your son of Africa, your father, your one more wonder of the world. We send our souls to you as you reflect upon your David armed with a mere stone, facing down the mighty Goliath. Your man of strength, Gideon, emerging triumphant. Although born into the brutal embrace of Apartheid, scarred by the savage ...
 While the world and its leaders paid their deepest respects to late Statesman Nelson Mandela this week, an extremist Christian group in the United States has been planning to picket his funeral. Speaking in an exclusive Skype interview, the Westboro Baptist Church told eNCA.com that "God hates South Africa" and "Nelson Mandela has "split *** wide open." The controversial Westboro Baptist Church has told eNCA.com in an exclusive interview it plans on picketing Nelson Mandela's funeral in protest of his 'philandering' lifestyle. eNCA Westboro elder Steve Drain said he and other members of the Kansas-based church want to bring this message over the Atlantic to tell the country this weekend, during Mandela's official State funeral in Qunu.  Members of the notorious cult church posted videos and pictures of posters reading "Mandela in *** and "Divorce + remarriage = adultery" on social media sites throughout the week, indicating their intention to fly to South Africa to speak out against Mandela's "p .. ...
Mandela Memorial: World Leaders Eulogise Madiba By: George Agba, Raliat Ahmed-Yusuf on December 11, 2013 - 3:34am World Leaders yesterday at the late Nelson Mandela’s memorial in South Africa honoured the late icon, eulogising his life and achievements. United States of America president, Barack Obama and five other presidents were among World Leaders who paid tributes to the first black president of South Africa. President Obama in his tribute said, “The world will never see the likes of Mandela again”, calling on the people of Africa and the young ones around the world to make his life’s work their own. He compared the late anti-apartheid leader to Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr. and Abraham Lincoln. “Nothing he achieved was inevitable,” Obama said. “In the arc of his life, we see a man who earned his place in history through struggle and shrewdness, persistence and faith. He tells us what’s possible not just in the pages of dusty history books, but in our own lives as well.” Ob ...
Reagan Was Right on South Africa By Patrick J. Buchanan Tuesday - December 10, 2013 "Apartheid is an affront to Human Rights and human dignity. Normal and friendly relations cannot exist between the United States and South Africa until it becomes a dead policy. Americans are of one mind and one heart on this issue." So said Ronald Reagan in his 1986 message to Congress vetoing the "sweeping and punitive sanctions" Congress was seeking to impose. Reagan equated the sanctions to "declaring economic warfare on the people of South Africa." His Treasury Secretary James Baker said Sunday that Reagan likely regretted this veto. But having worked with the president on his veto message and address on South Africa, I never heard a word of regret. Nor should there have been any. For in declaring, "we must stay and build not cut and run" from South Africa, Reagan, whose first duty was the defense of his nation in the Cold War with the Soviet empire, saw not only the moral issue but the strategic imperative. In 1986, ...
The Punch. Queen Elizabeth, Fidel Castro, others missing Four past or present United States presidents are among the nearly 100 World Leaders joining celebrities and tens of thousands of South Africans to celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela Tuesday, but some of the world’s best-known leaders are not there. Some are staying home for health reasons, like Queen Elizabeth II and former Cuban President Fidel Castro. Pope Francis isn’t coming because of protocol. Popes simply don’t attend the funerals of World Leaders. The situation with the Dalai Lama is a little trickier. The Tibetan spiritual leader, who is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate like Mandela, was not granted a visa to visit South Africa the last two times he applied, likely because of pressure from China. He last tried to visit in 2011 for the 80th birthday celebrations of Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Tutu lashed out at his government for failing to grant the Dalai Lama permission to enter, comparing denial to the apartheid regime he and Mandela wo ...
Disinvestment from South Africa From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search The campaign gained prominence in the mid-1980s on university campuses in the US. The debate headlined the October 1985 issue (above) of Vassar College's student newspaper.[1] Disinvestment (or divestment) from South Africa was first advocated in the 1960s, in protest of South Africa's system of Apartheid, but was not implemented on a significant scale until the mid-1980s. The disinvestment campaign, after being realized in federal legislation enacted in 1986 by the United States, is credited[2] as pressuring the South African Government to embark on negotiations ultimately leading to the dismantling of the Apartheid system.

KAUNDA REITERATES CALL FOR SANCTIONS AGAINST SOUTH AFRICA MAUREEN JOHNSON , Associated Press Jul. 9, 1986 11:55 AM ET LUSAKA, ZAMBIA LUSAKA, Zambia (AP) _ President Kenneth Kaunda today gave a chilly welcome to British Foreign Secretary Sir Geoffrey Howe and issued a plea for Europe to unite in imposing economic sanctions against South Africa. ''We appeal to you that you do not lead us to conclude that when it is white men suffering, you act, but when it is black men suffering, you hesitate,'' Kaunda said. Kaunda, an elder statesman among black African leaders, suggested the mission was an attempt by the Common Market to stall on imposing tough sanctions against South Africa, where 5 million white dominate 24 million voteless blacks. Kaunda reminded Howe that Britain and the United States had led the fight against Nazi Germany. ''I call upon all Europe not to hesitate but to fight the Nazis now on the continent of Africa,'' he said at a news conference after he and Howe met privately. Kaunda said southern ...
What manner of Man is Mandela?, United States and Russia, North Korea and South Korea, Pakistan and India, Iran and Israel, Japan and China, Iraq and Kuwait, South Sudan and North Sudan all have the same view about him, that "He is a good man", what is happening now in Johannesburg is enough attestation that Madiba is not only the Father of the Black race, Africa and South Africa, but the Lecturer of the whole world. Who will step into his shoes? probably Obama.
Margaret Thatcher Was Less Worthy of U.S Respect Than Nelson Mandela? Victor Keith Four U.S. Presidents, current and former, will attend the funeral of Nelson Mandela. Upon his death, flags were ordered flown at half mast. Nelson Mandela, no matter what one's opinion of him, was indeed a historical figure who sacrificed much to end a morally evil system of government that denied rights to citizens based upon their race. He was of great service to the transformation of South Africa. Margaret Thatcher, on the other hand, was not only a historical figure in British history but she was also a tremendous ally of the United States during the Cold War. She stood side by side with the U.S. during a time when it was not domestically popular to do so. Both her economic and foreign polices helped to maintain Great Britain as a serious player in the world affairs. Upon the death of the Iron Lady, however, this administration did not bother to fly the flags at half mast. Not only did the president not attend her fun . ...
Only Mexico, Germany and Brazil have reached the Round of 16 in each of the last five World Cups, and El Tri was given a boost in increasing that to six on Friday after being drawn in Group A of the World Cup, alongside Brazil, Cameroon and Croatia. After the rollercoaster of qualifying and almost not making the World Cup, Mexico is ironically now in a better position than the United States to advance from the group stage, with El Tri’s rivals - which topped CONCACAF qualifying - being drawn in Group G with Portugal, Germany and Ghana and playing in cities spread far and wide. In comparison, Mexico’s group games are all in northeastern Brazil, with fewer than 500 miles between Fortaleza, Natal and Recife. The second game for El Tri against Brazil will grab the headlines and offer a bit of glamor for Mexico, even if the hosts did defeat El Tri 2-0 in the Confederations Cup. Few nations have as good a record against the Verde-Amarela as Mexico and El Tri should have nothing to lose, with all the pressur ...

I first became aware of the South African Anti-Aparthied movement while a Junior in high school (1973) - brought to my attention when reading an expose about the Sharpeville Massacre in 1960. I saw the subsequent emergence in South Africa of the Black Consciousness Movement (BCM), African National Congress (ANC) and the Pan African Congress (PAC). The ANC movement in particular was deemed “terrorist” by whites globally (including the United States) because the ANC was prominent in opposition of the exploitation and murder of black people by white people in South Africa. So in high school - after some research, I became painfully aware of why the emergence of black protest to white murderous oppression in South Africa was tied to the cultural experience hip of myself and other black people in America. I discovered that while apartheid in South Africa shares characteristics with both American slavery and the Jim Crow era, it was more closely related to American slavery. Even though no one “owned” pe ...
Lei esto hoy en Internet, como parte de los articulos sobre la muerte de Mandela. Es un extracto: [...] Mandela and other ANC officials remained on the terror watch list even as President Bush welcomed Mandela, newly released from prison, to the White House in 1990. Because of what was described as a "bureaucratic snafu," their names were kept on the list (of terrorists) until 2008, 14 years after Mandela had been elected president and nine years after he had left power. He was 90 at the time. The terrorist designation finally proved too embarrassing for the U.S. government to ignore. In April 2008, during the last year of the George W. Bush administration, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told a Senate committee that her department had to issue waivers for ANC members to travel to the United States. "This is a country with which we now have excellent relations, South Africa, but it's frankly a rather embarrassing matter that I still have to waive in my own counterpart, the foreign minister of South .. ...
I have been observing with keen interest the adulation tributes by the Great Britain, the United States and some so-called African leaders both current and past ever since the demise of Nelson Mandela. Because the US and the UK succeeded in manipulating Mandela to allow their Imperial Capitalist and their Satellite Allies to flourish after post-apartheid South Africa, they want us to believe that Mandela was a saint and the greatest African ever lived. Yesterday, I read on one of the websites that our own President Kuffour, whose political tradition embraced apartheid, was quoted as saying that Mandela was a saint. Can you believe this? This is wonderful. That is a blatant lie, Mandela only won a political freedom for his people, today as we speak in South Africa, the white minority still controls all the resources in the country. The majority blacks are the poor mine workers and the tiller of the land. Where is the economic freedom for South Africans? No wonder all those who had radical views about the S ...
The world has lost a friend. A giant has fallen. Nelson Mandela was a friend of mine; we first met in Egypt in 1961. I was present at his inauguration in Pretoria, South Africa. We met in the United States whenever he was visiting. I know that he had great courage and great love, enough courage to tell a friend when he or she was wrong and enough courage to love them even if they were wrong. "He had the ability to forgive the apartheid guard that watched over him 27 years and invite him to his inauguration. I am grateful that we have had such a great teacher and a great friend".Maya Angelou
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 ...
Nelson Mandela lifted spirits, not a clenched fist of revenge. This title is from today’s Chicago Tribune column by John Kass. John Kass pointed out how throughout history, two men stand out who acted out of what was best for all and NOT out of the self-interest. George Washington declined to be king of the United States. Instead, he led its early transformation into a nation of government by the people for the people and not by politicians for their own glory and bank account. And when his term was completed, he went back to Mt. Vernon, allowing this country to become great. Cincinnatus answered ancient Rome’s call to fight off warring, predatory tribes. He took the job, led the armies, won the war then promptly resigned and went back to his farm. John Kass asks the question, “What kind of men are these, who refused to use the power given to them for selfish purposes? We know a few of them, and we know they’re exceedingly rare. And in South Africa, at 95, one of them passed away.” Nelson Man .. ...

The African Union (AU, or, in its other official languages, UA) is a union consisting of 54 African states. The only all-African state not in the AU is Morocco. The AU was established on 26 May 2001 in Addis Ababa and launched on 9 July 2002 in South Africa[7] to replace the Organisation of African Unity (OAU). The most important decisions of the AU are made by the Assembly of the African Union, a semi-annual meeting of the heads of state and government of its member states. The AU's secretariat, the African Union Commission, is based in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.Overview[edit] The objectives of the AU are: To achieve greater unity and solidarity between the African countries and the people of Africa. To defend the sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of its Member States. To accelerate the political and socio-economic integration of the continent. To promote and defend African common positions on issues of interest to the continent and its peoples. To encourage international cooperation, takin ...
An international meeting to discuss rules curbing the sale of conflict diamonds began Tuesday with a call for the United States to lift sanctions on Zimbabwean mines. Representatives of 81 countries taking part in the Kimberley Process heard a plea from the South African chairman that Washington follow the European Union's lead and allow Zimbabwe's return to International Trade. South Africa's Welile Nhlapo, who currently chairs the rotating presidency of the diamond watchdog, argued that Zimbabwe has moved on from the disputed July 31 elections won by President Robert Mugabe. "We hope that those who continue to maintain such sanctions will also be able to lift them because the lifting of these sanctions would assist Zimbabwe to bring stability and prosperity once again," he said at the start of the grouping's four-day talks in Johannesburg. The EU in September lifted restrictions against the Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation, the firm that controls one of the world's largest diamond fields. Zimbabw ...
KP welcomes lifting of sanctions on ZMDC: The outgoing Kimberley Process (KP) chairperson, Ambassador Welile Nhlapo has commended the European Union (EU) for lifting sanctions on the Zimbabwe Mining Development Corporation (ZMDC) and has challenged the United States of America to take a leaf from the economic grouping for the development of the global diamond trade. Ambassador Nhlapo made the remarks during the opening ceremony of the 2013 KP Plenary which runs from the 19th to the 22nd of November at the Emperors Convention Centre in Johannesburg, South Africa. He said the KP welcomes the decision by the EU to review its position on Marange diamonds, adding that all forms of sanctions on the country should be lifted for the realisation of sustainable economic development in Zimbabwe. He said the lifting of the unjustified embargo will not only benefit Zimbabwe but the entire Southern Africa region. The outgoing KP chair also encouraged the delegates to make use of the plenary to come up with strategies w ...
U.S. Offers Reward in Wildlife-Trade Fight By THOMAS FULLER Published: November 13, 2013 BANGKOK — Taking a page from the battle against international drug cartels, the United States announced on Wednesday a $1 million reward for information to help dismantle one of Asia’s largest wildlife-trafficking syndicates. In what officials said was the first time such a reward had been offered, the State Department said it was targeting a syndicate based in Laos, the impoverished and authoritarian Southeast Asian country whose government, investigators say, has been uncooperative in stopping a thriving trade of African ivory, rhino horns, tiger bones and endangered animals harvested by the thousands from Asian jungles. In a statement, Secretary of State John Kerry said the syndicate, the Xaysavang Network, “facilitates the killing of endangered elephants, rhinos and other species for products such as ivory.” The network, he said, spans South Africa, Mozambique, Thailand, Malaysia, Vietnam and China.

Parmanand (4 November 1876 – 8 December 1947)was born into a prominent family of the Punjab. His father, Tara Chand Mohyal, came from Kariala, Jhelum District and was an active worker of Arya Samaj movement and one-time President of the Hindu Mahasabha.

In 1911, he visited Lala Hardayal when he was on retreat in Martinique. Parmanand persuaded Hardayal to go to the United States to found a centre for the propagation of Bharatiya culture. Hardayal left for America, but soon located himself in Hawaii, where he again went on retreat on Waikiki Beach. A letter from Parmanand prompted his departure for San Francisco where he became an activist in the anarchist movement. Parmanand toured several British colonies in South America before rejoining Hardayal in San Franci ...

The strange story of Atlantica The effort to unite Europe and the U.S. started in 1939, with the publication of a book by an influential journalist, Clarence Streit. This influential book was called ”Union Now,” and had a galvanizing effect on the anti-fascist youth of the time, a sort of cross between Thomas Friedman’s “The World Is Flat” and Naomi Klein’s “The Shock Doctrine.” Streit served in World War I in an intelligence unit, and saw up close the negotiations for the Treaty of Versailles. He then became a New York Times journalist assigned to cover the League of Nations, which led him to the conclusion that the only way to prevent American isolationism and European fascism was for political and economic integration of the major “freedom-loving” peoples, which he described as America, Canada, New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and most of Western Europe. The Five Eyes surveillance architecture was created just a few years later, as was the international monetary regime concocted ...

Today, there are over 170 sovereign nations in the world today. A new governmental structure is being silently erected over these 170+ sovereign nations.

Millionaire Pastors of Africa: Bishop David Oyedepo, Chris Oyakhilome, Temitope Joshua, Matthew Ashimolowo, Chris Okotie — Are They Serving God and the People or Are They Serving Themselves? God is good, especially if you’re a Nigerian pastor with some business savvy. These days, millions of souls, desperate for financial breakthroughs, miracles and healing, all rush to the church for redemption. And while the bible expressly states that salvation is free, at times it comes with a cost: offerings, tithes, gifts to spiritual leaders, and a directive to buy literature and other products created by men of God. Pastors are no longer solely interested in getting people to Heaven; they’ve devised intelligent ways to make good money while reaching out to souls. Take Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, for example. He is the founder and lead pastor of the Christ Embassy, a thriving congregation with branches in Nigeria, South Africa, London, Canada and the United States. His publishing company, Loveworld Publications, ...

B.O.O.T. Chapter One, third segment, Tony Boots Nineteen ten was an interesting year. In February Boutrous Ghali, the first native-born Prime Minister of Egypt was assassinated. March saw an uprising against Ottoman rule break out in Albania. Halley's Comet was visible in the April night's sky. Edward VII of the United Kingdom died and his son, George V, began the process of ascending to the throne. The earth passed through the tail of Comet Halley and the Union of South Africa was created. As eventful as May had been, June was the antithesis. On Independence Day, the great African American boxer and sportsman, Jack Johnson defeated James J. Jeffries in a heavyweight match sparking race riots across the United States. Anthony Leopold Trapani, Junior, was born August twelfth.

I am glad that Minister of Police, Nathi Mthethwa, and Police Commissioner, Riah Phiyega, believe that policing is effective in South Africa and that the police have crime under control. (When releasing the Crime Stats for 2012-2013 yesterday) Continentally Africa now leads the world with the highest homicide rate (17.0 per 100 000 inhabitants according to the latest UNDOC - United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime - report released at the end of last year). But that rate is nearly half the rate for Southern Africa (30.4) which outstrips all other world regions by far. And the SAP have it under control? There were more than 3 600 murders in KwaZulu-Natal (population 8.4 million) between April last year and March this year - by far the highest number for any province. Compared with 15 609 murders across the whole country (population 51.2 million). Is this bad? The total number of murders in South Africa was higher than the total of 14 827 for the entire United States (population 314 million) despite its re ...
8, 2013 “The European race’s last three Hundred Years of evolutionary progress have all come down to nothing but four words: selfishness, slaughter, shamelessness and corruption.” It only took the rest of the world 300 years to catch on to the evil that masquerades as “western civilization,” or perhaps it only took the rise of new powers with the confidence to state the obvious. Anyone doubtful of America’s responsibility for the evil needs to read The Untold History of the United States by Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick. The “New American Century” proclaimed by the neoconservatives came to an abrupt end on September 6 at the G20 meeting in Russia. The leaders of most of the world’s peoples told Obama that they do not believe him and that it is a violation of international law if the US government attacks Syria without UN authorization. Putin told the assembled World Leaders that the chemical weapons attack was “a provocation on behalf of the armed insurgents in hope of the help from t ...
"South Africa recognizes me, but the United States of America doesn't; now what does that say?" - Suze Orman
So, my take on this, is the United States can not Control the Current Administration, henceforth; the CIA will do what ever is necessary to remove them from power, either by spreading Propaganda though the Churches or by terminating their lives to take over Control, so BIG BUSINESS, can continue the practice of Corporate Slavery in Brazil. Anywhere in the World, where there is resistance to the "GREAT WHITE THRONE" of the Superpowers - our Government Intervenes for TOTAL WORLD POWER AND CONTROL all in the NAME OF GREED AND MONEY - NOT LIBERTY AND FREEDOM - TOTAL WORLD DOMINATION IS THEIR GOAL. Same happened in Germany, Russia, Spain, South Africa, Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Egypt, Mexico, Venezuela, Peru, Korea, Vietnam, Ireland, Philippines, The Virgin Islands, Honduras, El Salvador, Chile, Panama, Japan, China, France, Italy, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Haiti and the list goes on! As long as we continue to send our young men and women to fight for their GREED, we will continue to lose lives of C ...
Drumstick benefits to your health. Eating benefits of Drumstick. Another name for the Drumstick Tree is Moringa Oleifera.

Posted: July 9th, 2013 GE Transportation books $108 million order GE Transportation has booked an order for 53 locomotive kits valued at $108 million, and more orders could be on the way. The order, from South African Transnet SOC Limited, will be filled with engines built in Grove City and other systems built and assembled in Erie.

By Martin Ewi, Senior Researcher, Transnational Threats and International Crime Division, Institute for Security Studies, Pretoria (South Africa) More than 700 Nigerians have died so far this year in over 80 attacks associated with Boko Haram, the Nigerian terrorist group that a recent United States report ranked as the second most deadly in the world after the Taliban in Afghanistan. Most of the deaths occurred in March and April (208 and 335 respectively), confirming the alarming dimension of Boko Haram's atrocities in Nigeria. In one attack in Baga, on 19 April 2013, Boko Haram militants confronted Nigerian security forces in a gun battle that left 260 people dead and nearly a thousand injured. This was the deadliest Boko Haram attack since 2009, when the group catapulted onto the global stage following violent riots that resulted in the death of over 800 people in northern Nigeria. Since then it is estimated that Boko Haram has killed nearly 4 000 people and injured several thousands more. Although th ...

Crucial CIA role in Nelson Mandela arrest 50 years ago today by Brett Wilkins The Central Intelligence Agency played a crucial role in the arrest of South African freedom hero Nelson Mandela, who was apprehended on August 5, 1962 and imprisoned for more than 27 years. Mandela, a Nobel Peace laureate and former South African President, is arguably the world's most respected and beloved living figure. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton calls him "a hero to people of all backgrounds and experience who strive for freedom and progress," lauding his "unfailing courage in the face of overwhelming obstacles." But what most Americans don't know is that Mandela suffered many of those "overwhelming obstacles" as a direct result of the United States, which considered him a criminal and a terrorist for many years. When the racist apartheid regime ruling South Africa freed Mandela in 1990 after more than 27 harrowing years in prison, US President George H.W. Bush personally phoned him and informed him that the Ameri ...

Obama urges Africa to follow spirit of Nelson Mandela By Jeff Mason and Mark Felsenthal Cape Town (Reuters) - President Barack Obama said on Sunday the United States would help propel Africa along a path of prosperity and peace, and urged the continent to follow the example of Nelson Mandela. In South Africa on the second leg of a three-nation Africa trip, the U.S. leader and his family visited the bleak former prison of Robben Island to pay tribute to ex-inmate and former president Mandela, now critically ill in hospital. Obama later cited the legacy of Mandela, who was imprisoned on the windswept island for most of the 27 years he spent in jail before becoming the country's first black president, in a speech at the University of Cape Town. The president, the first African American U.S. head of state, said Mandela's struggle against apartheid paved the way for freedom and opportunity well beyond South Africa's borders. "Nelson Mandela showed us that one man's courage can move the world," Obama said. He u ...

Kaizer Motaung In a sense, South Africa's favorite soccer club never plays an away match - Kaizer Chiefs, founded by SA soccer legend Kaizer Motaung, draws more supporters at away games than its opposition 'home' teams. As a youngster, Motaung dreamt of pulling on the black and white strip of the legendary Soweto club Orlando Pirates. At the age of 16 his dream came true, and he quickly established himself as one of the stars of the side. Then, in 1968, former West Ham United player Phil Woosnam, who was managing the Atlanta Chiefs in the recently formed North American Soccer League (NASL) in the United States, came to Africa looking for new talent. He recruited Motaung after trials held in Zambia. At first the move was a big shock to the system for the young striker. ANY STORIES YOU WANT TO SHARE ABOUT CHINCHA GULUVA?
"Ronald Reagan was angry. It was October 1986, and his veto against the Comprehensive Anti-Apartheid Act had just been overridden — and by a Republican-controlled Senate, at that. He had appeared on TV a month earlier to warn Americans against the Anti-Apartheid Act, decrying it as "immoral" and "utterly repugnant." Congress disagreed, and one month later, it produced the two-thirds majority needed to override Reagan and pass tough new measures against South Africa's apartheid government. These measures included a ban on bank loans and new investments in South Africa, a sharp reduction of imports, and prevented most South African officials from traveling to the United States. The Act also called for the repeal of apartheid laws and the release of political prisoners like African National Congress (ANC) leader Nelson Mandela, who had spent the last 23 years in prison."
(Reuters) - Sub-Saharan African countries that invest in training doctors have ended up losing $2 billion as the expert clinicians leave home to find work in more prosperous developed nations, researchers said on Friday. Brain Drain: Most Educated People in Africa flee overseas for Greener Pastures. The case with Medicine A study by Canadian scientists found that South Africa and Zimbabwe suffer the worst economic losses due to doctors emigrating, while Australia, Canada, Britain and the United States benefit the most from recruiting doctors trained abroad. The scientists, led by Edward Mills, chair of global health at the University of Ottawa, called on destination countries to recognize this imbalance and invest more in training and developing health systems in the countries that lose out. "Many wealthy destination countries, which also train fewer doctors than are required, depend on immigrant doctors to make up the shortfall," Mills' team wrote in a study, which was published in the British Medical Jo ...
Democracy And Leadership In Nigeria By Highdeal Efrebor July 1, 2013 - 19:39 In his book, The Age of Turbulence, economists and former Chairman of US Federal Reserve (1987 – 2006), Alan Greenspan asked the question, “How do we reform government and return money and power back to the American people”. This question is perhaps more valid today in Nigeria than could have been the case in the United States in 2006. Probably in response, President Obama while visiting South Africa remarked that “terrorism is more likely to succeed in countries that are not delivering for their people and where there are areas of conflict and underlying frustrations that have not been adequately dealt with”. The question of delivery is certainly about the existence of opportunities, how citizens are able to access them and convert into income or welfare benefits. Unfortunately, in our case, there has been systematic contraction of available opportunities, access has been privatised and virtually restricted to function ...
Why Obama Keeps Skipping Nigeria ~ Sam Nda-Isaiah Last week, the White House announced that President Barack Obama would visit Africa between June 26 and July 3, 2013. He will be travelling with his lovely wife Michelle to Senegal, South Africa and Tanzania. According to the statement, Obama will meet government officials as well as leaders from the business, Civil Society and youth groups. The White House further said that the visit will focus on strengthening economic growth, democratic institutions and African leadership. In July 2009, during Obama’s first term as president, he visited Ghana from where he addressed the African continent, and, in the process, obliquely threw a few barbs at Nigeria’s leaders. Is it not curious that the United States president shall be visiting Africa to discuss business and his itinerary does not include the continent’s second largest economy that is even expected to take over as the largest within a decade? And do we think the president of the world’s biggest ec ...
