9 Must-Know Facts About The Ebola Virus Spreading Across West Africa 07/24/14 03:02 PM ET By Kitty Appel, HuffPost Healthy Living The deadliest outbreak of Ebola in history is still ravaging countries in West Africa, particularly Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. And the troubling news continues with the recent report that the head doctor treating patients with Ebola in Sierra Leone, virologist Sheik Umar Khan, has himself contracted the virus, and is now being treated by doctors from the organization Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders). The virus is notoriously deadly, causing a severe viral hemorrhagic fever, and has so far killed 60 percent of people infected by itin this West Africa outbreak. Here’s what is known about Ebola Virus disease -- formerly known as Ebola hemorrhagic fever-- including how it's spread and why it's so deadly: The first human outbreaks of Ebola on record occurred in Sudan and Zaire in 1976. The virus is named after the Ebola Riverin Africa. There have bee ...

I’m home! What an honor it was to speak in West Africa. A huge thank you to Elder Vinson (first counselor of area precedency in Ghana and member of the quorum of the seventy for the LDS church) for blessing me with the opportunity to follow my dreams and speak to thousands of young adults and share my passion – to inspire others to fight for justice for those who are continually victimized by human trafficking. Elder Vinson and I became quite a team as we traveled and did Q and A segments together. Oh how he loves the people of West Africa! To be completely honest it wasn't an easy trip. Many times I found myself questioning if I had truly done everything I could possibly do to prepare to give hope and touch the hearts of those I spoke to. There were times that I felt the strong pressure and stress of impressing a General Authority and thousands of Young Adults. The real challenge for me was speaking to people who have seen many forms of modern day slavery right before their eyes but just need to be g ...

LEST WE FORGET: Those interested in how the trillions budgeted for defence between 2011-2014 will find this article I wrote in 2012 relevant: "Budget 2012 (5) – On Defence Spending" - February 17, 2012 - by Nasir El-Rufai For a nation that is not at war, Nigeria’s defence spending raises several critical concerns. The paradox of course is that the more government spends on defence, the more insecure Nigerians feel. Travelling within the country has become so perilous that it is now advisable to get a ‘security report’ of all towns and villages on our way before setting out. Today, all major defence related structures in Abuja, supposedly the safest place in the country are so barricaded that images of Baghdad and Kabul come to mind. If the state of our armed forces and defence apparatus are the way that they are in peace times, what would happen if (God forbid), Nigeria is faced with a major external threat? Or is it that the amorphous term, ‘defence’ is being used to pull wool over the eyes o ...

The NORTH!!! A region once dominated by economic viability. A region once crowned with leadership. A region once living under security buoyancy. A region once controlled by selfless men and worth the name. A region that once served as the economic nerve centre of west Africa. Selflessness & love were its foundation. Security & peaceful co-existence were its pillars. Trust & honesty were its walls. Leadership & military might were its roof and godliness was its house. Our past heroes will never forgive us; the region they built on equity, justice & accountability is on fire. We have rulers today but no single leader! Selfishness & greed is their lot; Public theft & social recognition has blinded them. We are literally responsible for our own destruction! Our rulers have worn a large price tag on their chests. They are easily bought; don't even talk of the royal houses! We are simply on a sinking ship without a captain. The northern youths are nothing but bunch of drug addicts. The educated ones are all wai ...
Tostan is a US 501(c)(3) Non Governmental Organization headquartered in Dakar, Senegal. Tostan's mission is to empower African communities to bring about sustainable development and positive social transformation based on respect for human rights. Its programs are currently being implemented in six African countries. Over the last three years, Tostan has been creating a training center, now scheduled to open in April 2015. We are seeking a dynamic professional to direct it. Overview The successful results of Tostan’s Community Empowerment Program (CEP) have allowed Tostan to scale up its work and implement its program in over 4,000 communities in eight countries in Africa. In the coming years, the CEP will reach hundreds more communities. Yet the need across Africa and around the world far exceeds Tostan's reach, even with rapid growth. Local communities, NGOs, INGOS, development agencies and government ministries are requesting that Tostan share its program, approach and methodology so that its effecti ...

Between Monday 21- Wednesday 23 July a customer who wanted to transfer $1million lost $50,000 due to exchange fluctuations because the transmitting bank in Ghana had problems. An iron rods company is considering moving company to Togo as that saves him $300,000 on electricity per month. Cusson Ltd has moved from Ghana to Pakistan over cost of production - causing 300 people to lose their jobs. Ghana has the highest cost of port levies across West Africa. At this time, FDIs do not find Ghana interesting. When we talk about Ghana being ill (economically, it is not borne out of malice); we speak because the issues are being hidden under politics of propaganda! Cyril Gavor any further education?

Sierra Leone religious leaders criticise government handling of Ebola. Mon Jul 21, 2014 11:55am GMT FREETOWN (Reuters) - Religious leaders in Sierra Leone criticised the government's handling of an Ebola outbreak that has killed 194 PEOPLE in the West Africa country, saying a lack of information was prompting rural communities to shun medical help. Bishop John Yambasu, chairman of an interfaith task force, said he was "seriously disappointed" the government had failed to declare a public health emergency and pump MORE resources into the fight against Ebola, which has infected 400 people in the country during a regional epidemic. The World Health Organisation (WHO) said last week that Ebola had killed 603 people in total in Sierra Leone and neighbouring Guinea and Liberia since February, the world's deadliest outbreak of the disease. The highest number of deaths in recent weeks had been recorded in Sierra Leone, the WHO said. It warned of resistance from remote rural communities to allowing access to docto ...
NEWS UPDATES AT 8 O’CLOCK WITH ORANGE. Amid the alarming spread of Ebola in West Africa that has killed over 600 people, suspected cases of the disease have been detected in Democratic Republic of Congo DRC. Now, Ugandan health experts are vigorously monitoring the situation lest Uganda be affected. The permanent secretary in the ministry of Health, Dr. Asuman Lukwago said that the suspected cases were in Aruu and other parts or Northeastern DRC and that samples were being tested. He said, if the disease is confirmed, Uganda will send a medical team to work with the Congolese in a bid to control the deadly illness from there. Uganda and DRC have in the past been affected by Ebola, a hemorrhagic fever that has no known cure. Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone are suffering the effects of the disease since early this year. The tendency of public officers attending unnecessary trainings is a waste of government funds. Now, minister for works and transport, Abraham Byandala has warned them saying that they mu ...
HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPY IN NIGERIA With around 120 million inhabitants, Nigeria has the largest population in Africa and is the continent's leading oil-producer. Although weakened by acute political instability, the "idol with feet of clay" still enjoys a special aura throughout the whole sub-region. A veritable international trade hub, a good number of manufactured goods - such as plastics, medicine, car spare parts, electronic goods, photographic material, etc. - come from or transit through Nigeria. The sprawling town of Lagos is a nerve centre with its dozen huge open-air "supermarkets", each specializing in a particular field. You can find everything, including the latest camera. It was here in this country where the photographic profession was recognized very early on that West Africa's first colour laboratories opened at the end of the Sixties. The origins of photography in Nigeria date back to the end of the nineteenth century. In West Africa, the profession first of all developed in the coastal tow ...
The University of Sankoré, or Sankore Masjid is one of three ancient centers of learning located in Timbuktu, Mali, West Africa. The three mosques of Sankoré, Djinguereber Mosque and Sidi Yahya compose the famous University of Timbuktu. During the 14th -16th century, Sankore University enrolled more foreigen students than New York University today. The Mali Empire gained direct control over the city of Timbuktu in 1324 during the reign of Mansa Kankou Musa also known as Musa I “King of Kings”. He designed and saw the construction of one of Sankore’s first great mosques and the Jingeray Ber Masjid in 1327.The foundations of the previous structure were laid around 988 A.D. on the orders of the city’s chief judge Al-Qadi Aqib ibn Mahmud ibn Umar. A local mandinka lady, esteemed for her wealth, financed his plans to turn Sankoré into a world class learning institution. By the end of Mansa Musa’s reign (early 14th century CE), the Sankoré Masjid had been converted into a fully staffed Madrassa (I ...

When are humans ever going to learn that there are no winners in war? Never. I find it so hard to understand why we still live in a world where the fight for power, land and religion are still dominating and resulting in the deaths of so many people. I know the issues of the world are very complex and this post feels rather useless…. But... I still hope that one day we'll live in a society where we accept and rejoice in the fact that our neighbour has a different religion to us, or speaks a different language, or dresses differently… and most importantly that we won't try and make them be the same as us just because it makes us feel more "comfortable". I lived in West Africa when I was growing up. Diagonally opposite from our house were American friends. Next door, Pakistani friends. Across the street Sri Lankan friends. My best friend was Irish/Danish. Other friends were Nigerian, Argentinian, Norwegian, Danish, Scottish and Canadian. The Gambian people were wonderful too. I went to a festival in Zam ...

Topic 10: West Africa and the Sea Some West African countries border the sea, but a few do not. It'll be easier if I start by talking about the countries that do not border the ocean. Mali, Niger, and Burkina Faso do not border the sea. Some people also say that Mauritania is part of West Africa, but others say it's in North Africa, so I won't talk about it right now. Mali and Niger are both very big countries. The northern parts of these two countries are in the Sahara Desert. That means, of course, that it's very hot and dry. There aren't a lot of people in the north. The southern parts of these countries are not so dry. They have a little bit more rain and also more farms. Timbuktu is a famous city in Mali. It is very old. For hundreds and hundreds of years, it has been important for the economy and education of West Africa. About half of all the people in West Africa live in just one country, and it is a country that borders the sea. Do you know what country that is? It's Nigeria! It has the biggest a ...
Topic 9: Other countries in West Africa Senegal is in West Africa. I'm from Senegal, so I know this. However, I'm not sure about all the other countries that are West African. It's a little complicated. I want to explain a few things about West Africa, but maybe some people will say I'm wrong. Maybe I'll say, "This country is in West Africa," but other people will say, "No! That country is in North Africa" or "You're wrong! That country is in Central Africa." Well, it's OK if we disagree a little about this. The borders between countries aren't always natural, and sometimes they change. Africa's really big. West Africa's bigger than India and almost as big as Australia. About three hundred and fifty million people live here. That's a lot of people. There're some very modern cities here, and also some ancient ones. If you come here, you'll see farmers working in their fields, computer programmers in offices, teachers, students, construction workers, journalists, story tellers, sailors, film makers, and a l ...

The question now is; exactly how prepared is Nigeria to prevent and combat Ebola, in the event it needs to? Is the Federal Government equipped enough to forestall or limit the Ebola plague if indeed it needed to do so? As we watch man threaten its very existence with its inhumanity to itself, our focus is very dangerously taken off a bigger peril. While we plant bombs and launch arsenals in a bid to win unwarranted wars, a silent war against the human race is being declared by an even bigger threat to humanity. An ongoing epidemic of the Ebola Virus is spreading throughout West Africa. The world’s deadliest Ebola epidemic is currently ravaging many communities in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, among others. So far, the World Health Organization has reported a total of 888 Ebola cases, including 539 deaths since February this year. In a statement, the organization expressed how dire the situation has become by labeling it a ‘precarious’ one which had surged at an unprecedented rate. Figures releas ...

2,053 Killed By Boko Haram In First Half Of 2014--Human Rights Watch: The Islamist insurgency Boko Haram in Nigeria killed at least 2,053 civilians in an estimated 95 attacks during the first half of 2014, Human Rights Watch said today. The figures are based on detailed analyses of media reports as well as field investigations. The killings and other abuses were part of widespread attacks on civilians in over 70 towns and villages in northeastern Nigeria, in the federal capital, Abuja, and elsewhere that are apparent crimes against humanity. Aid workers at a bomb blast site Huffington Post There has been a dramatic increase during 2014 in the numbers of casualties from bomb blasts, including several apparent suicide bombings.

The Republic of Liberia, West Africa From My Journal 1938-78 The Worldwide Evangelization Crusade started work in Liberia with 8 workers sailing from Liverpool on January 8th. 1938. They arrived at Grand Bassa after three weeks’ sailing, a hundred years since Queen Victoria’s coronation in 1838. There were no harbours along the Liberian coast at that time. The William Wilberforce, a cargo boat, carried 12 passengers: 4 traders and 8 missionaries. The late Mrs J D Drysdale, of Immanuel Bible College, Birkenhead, came along in the tender with her teenage daughter with her hair falling down over her shoulders, tied with a ribbon. My sister and a friend, Lilian Nicholson, later Mrs Parkin, were there too. As we sat in the lounge, Mrs Drysdale started to sing, ‘I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, down in my heart,’ after which we all got down on our knees. I shall never forget how lovingly she commended us to God. Soon after the ship’s horn have a loud blast, a warning for all visitors to leave. With last ...
You Can Improve Your Memory! “Memory enlarges our world. Without it, we would lack a sense of continuity and each morning encounter a stranger staring back from the mirror. Each day and event would exist in isolation; we could neither learn from the past nor anticipate the future.” —“MYSTERIES OF THE MIND.” WHY is it that some birds can remember months later the places where they stored seeds for the winter and squirrels can remember the locations where they buried nuts, but we may forget where we left our keys an hour ago? Yes, many of us complain of a faulty memory. Yet, the human brain, though imperfect, has an amazing capacity to learn and remember. The secret is to make the most of what we have. Enormous Potential The human brain weighs about three pounds [1.4 kg] and is roughly the size of a grapefruit, yet it contains some 100 billion neurons, or nerve cells, all of which form an incredibly complex network. Indeed, just one neuron may be connected to 100,000 others. This wiring gives the ...

Ebola Virus disease Fact sheet N°103 Updated April 2014 Key facts Ebola Virus disease (EVD), formerly known as Ebola haemorrhagic fever, is a severe, often fatal illness in humans. EVD outbreaks have a case fatality rate of up to 90%. EVD outbreaks occur primarily in remote villages in Central and West Africa, near tropical rainforests. The virus is transmitted to people from wild animals and spreads in the human population through human-to-human transmission. Fruit bats of the Pteropodidae family are considered to be the natural host of the Ebola Virus. Severely ill patients require intensive supportive care. No licensed specific treatment or vaccine is available for use in people or animals. Ebola first appeared in 1976 in 2 simultaneous outbreaks, in Nzara, Sudan, and in Yambuku, Democratic Republic of Congo. The latter was in a village situated near the Ebola River, from which the disease takes its name. Genus Ebolavirus is 1 of 3 members of the Filoviridae family (filovirus), along with genus Marbur ...

This is how ignorance can kill you and those you love. In case you weren't aware, West Africa is suffering the worst Ebola outbreak in history and it has spread to the city of Sierra-Leone. The calamity is being exacerbated by citizens hiding their sick family members, convinced that going to the hospital is a death sentence. Unfortunately, however, doing such a thing in ignorance means near certain death for everyone involved... of course after going about their normal business and spreading the infection. God help them.

The Painted Lady—A Mystery Revealed 00:0002:22 EUROPEAN observers have long admired colorful painted lady butterflies (Vanessa cardui) and have wondered what happened to them at the end of each summer. Do they simply perish with the onset of cold weather? Fresh research reveals an extraordinary story. The butterflies make an annual journey between northern Europe and Africa. Researchers combined results from sophisticated radar with thousands of sightings reported by volunteers across Europe. The results revealed that as the summer ends, millions of painted lady butterflies migrate south, mostly flying at an altitude of more than 1,600 feet (500 m)—therefore hardly ever seen by humans. The butterflies wait for favorable winds, which they ride at an average speed of 28 miles per hour (45 km/h) on the long trip to Africa. Their annual migration is up to 9,300 miles (15,000 km) long, beginning from as far north as the fringes of the Arctic and terminating as far south as tropical West Africa. The trip is ...

AFRICAN TRADE MINISTERS DIVIDED ON EPAS.

This happened during the recent African Union Trade Ministers meeting held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. During the meeting, several African trade Ministers agreed not to sign EPAs until a robust economic analysis of the overall impact the agreement will have on the region is carried out. According to the newsletter by Bridges, the Zambian Commerce Minister, Hon. Robert Sichinga encouraged African countries to further deepen their intra-regional trade through value addition of their raw materials as opposed to rushing into signing the EPAs. Similar sentiments were also expressed by Niger trade Minister Alma Oumarou, who urged fellow African countries to evaluate the EPAs’ impacts realistically before signing. Despite this opposition to EPAs ...

Tricksters and Animal Fables. Many African myths feature a trickster. The trickster may be a god, an animal, or a human being. His pranks and mischief cause trouble among gods, among humans, or between gods and humans. West Africans tell many tales of a wandering trickster spirit known as Eshu among the Yoruba and as Legba among the Fon. This trickster is associated with change and with quarrels; in some accounts, he is the messenger between the world and the supreme god. Animal tricksters are often small, helpless creatures who manage to outwit bigger and fiercer animals. Anansi, the spider trickster of the Ashanti people, is known throughout West and Central Africa. Tortoises and hares also appear as tricksters. In one such tale, the hare tricks a hippopotamus and an elephant into clearing a field for him

PROTECT YOURSELF FROM KILLER Ebola Virus! Below is all the information you need to know about Ebola Virus: (1). It is a Central African disease that has travelled over countries in a living host to West Africa. It is easily spread by physical contact and eating contaminated bush meat. Major hosts are in 5 species of Bats but monkeys and apes are easily infected and killed. (2). It kills in a week, leaving no time to treat an individual. (3). It has no known vaccine or cure. (4). Known cases have been experienced recently in Guinea, Liberia and Central Africa Rep, spreading eastwards and westwards towards Nigeria. Death toll so far in West Africa is over 100. (5). The Ebola outbreak of 2014 is the most challenging one witnessed in Africa. What we can do? 1. Avoid eating any bush meat for now! Especially Apes and Bats. 2. Wash your hands as regularly as possible, especially after shaking hands with anyone. It is spread by contact. 3.The most straightforward prevention method during Ebola outbreaks is not to ...
Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Aloma Mukhtar, yesterday accused some Senior Advocates of Nigeria (SANs) of encouraging corruption in the Judiciary. She wondered why so many of them would agree to represent a judge who has been accused of graft at a mere disciplinary hearing of the National Judicial Council (NJC).“I think the SANs are equally guilty,” Justice Mukhtar said. The CJN spoke yesterday in Abuja at the opening ceremony of a three-day Judicial Reforms Conference, with the theme: Putting Our Best Foot Forward: The Judiciary and the Challenges of Satisfying Justice Needs of the 21st Century. It was jointly organised by the Nigerian Bar Association’s (NBA’s) Judiciary Committee, the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and Access to Justice, with the support of Open Society Initiative for West Africa and the NJC’s Performance Evaluation Committee. Justice Mukhtar noted that such SANs must be “working in tandem” with the judges under probe. According to her, corrupti ...

MARQUETTE UNIVERSITY. The Race and Identity: DR. Chima Korieh The Case of the Igbo- Hebrew israelites in the Americas, This paper explores the way the Igbo-Hebrew Israelite people of the Bight of Biafra Hinterland, West Africa, viewed race and constructed their identity in the eighteenth and nineteenth century Americas and the Caribbean, following their enslavement. The Igbo-Hebrew Israelite people were brought to the United States and other parts of British Americas in large numbers through the Trans-Atlantic slave trade. The Europeans oppressed the Igbo people as a result of the social construct of race and Igbo identity was reconstructed in the Americas because of their ancestral customs. Specifically, this paper explores the issue of race and identity formation through a critical study of the lives of two Igbo ex-slaves—Olaudah Equiano, the author of The Interesting Narrative of the Life of Oladuah Equiano and Archibald John Monteath, whose life as a slave and mission helper with the Monrovian miss ...

JONATHANIAN PROPAGANDA: "What Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan should have written" - BY KAREN ATTIAH - July 2, 2014 via The Washington Post Last month, The Post published an op-ed by Ni­ger­ian President Goodluck Jonathan answering criticism of his response to the kidnapping of hundreds of schoolgirls by the group Boko Haram. This is what he should have written. I have remained quiet about Nigeria’s continuing efforts to find the girls kidnapped in April from the northern town of Chibok, because, honestly, I hoped the world would ignore it as just another “African tragedy.” But the attention brought by forced my administration to abandon its usual do-nothing strategy. I admit that for weeks, the Nigerian military was nowhere to be seen in Chibok and aggrieved parents had to resort to venturing into the jungle on foot to search for their children. But I assure everyone, we are doing our best. I am speaking out now because national elections are in less than a year and my Washington PR firm nee ...

DEADLY EBOLA STRIKES MORE PEOPLE IN WEST AFRICA West Africa's Ebola epidemic is completely "out of control", with more than 60 outbreaks across three nations and doctors overwhelmed by the number of infected and dying, a global health charity has said. Ebola is one of the world’s most deadly diseases, highly infectious and likely to kill 90% of those who catch it. The epidemic has caused widespread terror in infected communities across Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. It is the worst epidemic of the virus in history, with 467 people dead, and almost 300 other suspected or confirmed cases. The number of infections jumped by 38% in between June 25 and July 2, according to the World Health Organisation. Bodies of victims remain infectious even after death, and traditional methods of burial , involving the manual washing of the body, has been identified as one of the key factors in passing on the disease. Liberian authorities have promised those suspected of hiding Ebola patients will face arrest, after .. ...

“The End Of My Search For The Real And True Light” By Theophilus W. Darku Among the classical pieces of the masters, Handel’s “Messiah” has always been food for thought for me. The part that engaged my attention the most, was one taken from Isaiah 9:2 “The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light.” I have come to love and play this piece very often without recognizing the impact it would have on my life in these last days. Another portion, from Isaiah 9:6, also got my attention. It reads, “For to us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: And his name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, The Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” This verse eventually made me eager to seek the light diligently until I found it. But let me touch on this later on. Right now let me introduce myself. The name is Theophilus William Darku, born in Cape Coast, Ghana, West Africa on June 27, 1927. I come from a Catholic home with f ...

A statement by its Regional Director for sub-Saharan Africa, Chantal Uwimana, said: “Allowing the theft of public funds to go unpunished sends the wrong message that those with powerful connections can act with impunity. The case should have been fully prosecuted and the government has not given adequate reasons for dropping the charges. Corruption is widespread in Nigeria and despite claims by the government to make tackling corruption a priority too few people have been held to account for a series of high profile scandals.” Given the way this administration has treated (with levity) the challenge of corruption in our country, it is very easy to understand the basis of the damaging statemen ...

EKITI ELECTION AND THE TRIUMPH OF EMPHATHY OVER SYMPATHY (Concluding Part) By: Taiwo Amoo Despite Governor Fayemi’s adjudged good performance in the areas of education, infrastructural development and security- he was not re-elected! Fayemi’s elite-styled leadership is being fingered as great contributor to his recent electoral defeat in the June 21, 2014 gubernatorial election in Ekiti State, Nigeria. Though, to many of his admirers (and his critics alike) his performance in the various fundamentals of good governance scored above average. But notwithstanding, his style of leadership suggests that he is being sympathetic to the people- as if he is not part of them- he is too-bureaucratic! People like leaders who look like them, eat their food and wear their own type of clothes and whom they have free access to. For example, as it is not augur well to be bringing new idea to the farmers on their farms wearing a designer suit and Italian shoes to match (one has to wear Ankara and “boogy-boogy” shoe ...

via Gauragopala Das: Hladini devi dasi Hladini devi dasi was brutally gunned down by an extra-judicial firing squad in war-torn Liberia in western Africa in 1990. The death squad arrived at the Hare Krishna temple in the capital city of Monrovia in the early morning hours, and ordered the devotees to come out. Seven devotees, five men and two women, exited the temple and filed into the waiting jeep. They were driven a short distance to the Sturton Bridge, where the devotees were forced out at gunpoint and herded onto the sand next to the river. The leader announced that only the men would be killed. Thus Hladini, a woman, knew she would not be killed. As the leader raised his weapon to fire the first execution volley, Hladini leapt forward and attacked him with her bare hands. She shouted, "How dare you kill the devotees of Krishna? Better you kill me than kill them!" Hladini was the first to be shot. Hladini was born on January 16, 1949. Her parents gave her the name Linda Jury. Later, she received the . ...

The Gospel: Actors and Audience All From Acts 9:32-35 "And Peter said unto him, Aeneas, Jesus Christ maketh thee whole: arise, and make thy bed. And he arose immediately." Sometimes we just have to go with what was written in the Scriptures as they were written. In this case, Peter said to Aeneas to rise and he arose immediately. We don't know from the passage whether Aeneas was one of the saints who lived in Lydda before Peter traveled there. He might have been. Still, there was no mention that Peter asked Aeneas if he believed in the Lord Jesus, or if he thought Peter was so empowered to heal him. In Matthew 9:29, we learn that Jesus asked the blind man if he believed Jesus had the ability to heal before healing him, but that wasn't known here. No, in the case of Aeneas, he took what Peter said, and pardon the pun, he ran with it. However, again, I don't know whether Aeneas believed in Christ before Peter hit town or if he came to know Christ later. What we do know was that he was made 'whole,' which I ...

LORENZO DOW TURNER (1890 –1972) was an academic and linguist who conducted seminal research on the Gullah language of coastal South Carolina and Georgia. He earned a master's degree from Harvard and a Ph.D. from the Univ. of Chicago. He taught at Howard Univ. (1917-1928) and Fisk Univ. (1929 – 1946) and traveled West Africa, identifying over 300 (Mende, Vai, Fulani) Gullah loanwords and 4,000 personal names. He published his findings in his book “Africanisms in the Gullah Dialect (1949).

PROFILE OF SIR SERETSE KHAMA, FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC OF BOTSWANA Today Botswana marks the 93rd anniversary of the birth of its first President Sir Seretse Khama. Below is a profile of the statesman. The late Sir Seretse Khama was the first President of the Republic of Botswana. He inherited an impoverished and internationally obscure state from British rule, and left it as a democratic and increasingly prosperous nation with a significant role in Southern Africa. Seretse Khama was born on the 1st of July 1921 at Serowe in what was then the Bangwato Tribal Reserve of the Bechuanaland Protectorate. He was the son and heir Sekgoma Khama and Tebogo (nee Kebailele). In 1923 his father succeeded his grandfather as the Kgosi or ruler of the Bangwato. His reign, as Kgosi Sekgoma II was, however, short as he died in 1925. With the death of his mother, in 1930, Seretse remained in the care of his uncle Tshekedi Khama, who ruled the Bangwato as his regent. Seretse received his higher primary and secondary e ...

How Pittsburgh and Toledo are responding to West Africa's worst Ebola outbreak on record:
How deadly lassa virus infects cells Scientists have discovered that the Lassa virus, which is endemic to West Africa, uses an unexpected two-step process to enter cells. The results, published in the journal Science, suggest that the mechanism by which Lassa virus causes infection is more complicated than previously known. An international team of scientists from the Netherlands Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, the University of Kiel in Germany, and the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases (USAMRIID) collaborated on the study, which could lead to new approaches for preventing the disease. "This research indicates that viruses may require multiple receptors for delivering their viral cargo for productive infection, which is a fresh way of looking at classical viral entry," said John M. Dye, Jr., Ph.D, of USAMRIID. According to the authors, it has been known for more than three decades that while Lassa virus can infect a broad range of cells from different species, it does n ...

Most Black Americans have West African ancestry. Why do I see Black Americans worshiping & embracing East Africa for example Egypt when West Africa has an amazing history? Is it because the Europeans confirmed that regions greatness? Why do Black Americans ignore the greatness of our own blood?
North & West Africa's chances of representing Africa at the are over. Time to send East African representatives. Enough is enough.

Hey, did you guys hear about the Ebola outbreak in West Africa? Or the attacks in Nigeria? Or that the border crossings between Jordan and Syria have been taken over by militants? Yeah, the Supreme Court made a *** move. Yeah, it affects 21,000 people in the US, and is going to ripple outwards from here. And yeah, I just looked these things up just now with no prior knowledge of any of them. But for God's sake, other things are going on around us. We now return you to the World Cup.
Ebola is a virus that can kill up to 90% of those who catch it, leaving entire communities decimated. In west Africa, an epidemic has been growing since March. The Red Cross has been working in Sierra Leone, educating the public about the risks and symptoms of the Ebola Virus. This includes an SMS system that can reach 36,000 people within an hour, as well as traditional community dramas and face-to-face workshops.
THE LISTENING TOUR 19 October 2010 -- If we more or less agree on evolution theory (Ms. Palin, you may want to stop reading about now), Africa is not only where it all began for humans, it’s the most likely birthplace of music. It makes sense, then, that the people who have been playing music the longest are the best at it. African music is extraordinarily varied, lively, rich and utterly intoxicating. Fortunately, there is plenty of it. And you don’t have to find it, it finds you. There is an abundance of traditional music everywhere you turn here, but also the contemporary music industry in Africa is hyper-productive. Despite what seems a never-ending tragedy in the D.R. Congo, the music that comes out of that country is exquisite, such as the songs of the fine, jazzy balladeer Franco (pictured below), who died in 1989, though his work is still extremely popular. While Senegal, Mali, Nigeria, Benin and other West Africa nations have produced numerous artists who have been, and continue to be, enormo ...
I Think saying that Moroccan Gnawa music is brought by African slaves is historically false without reference neithe sources. The Gnanawa music is traced back to Mali empire, but Moroccans got it from Guinean people who recently immigrated to North Africa in the19th century. As Moroccans used to call their grandson today in Arabic “ محمود غينيا » which means in Arabic Mahmoud from Guinea , because we all know that Guinea is not a family name , it is a name of a country . Mr. Mahmoud Guinea or Guinia is one of the Moroccan famous Gnawa music player . His ancestry brought the music to Morocco in 19th C, later on, others followed them, until the music influenced Moroccan culture . Any one who is sure that Gunawa is brought by African slave, I invite you face to face debate with concrete examples. Please play similar music West Africa :
