          Kuli-Kuli      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Kuli-kuli is a popular Nigerian snack made from crushed peanuts. Often colloquially referred to as groundnuts, peanuts are a staple crop in several West African countries. High in protein and fat, groundnut-based foods such as kuli-kuli provide an inexpensive option for a quick and satiating bite.

Kuli-kuli originated in Northern Nigeria, but is now widely enjoyed throughout the country and across Benin, Northern Cameroon, and Ghana. Often referred to as groundnut cakes or groundnut chips, the snacks come in a dazzling array of shapes and sizes, from small, rolled globes to spiraled cones.

The process of making kuli-kuli can be labor-intensive, especially for those not using heavy-duty machinery. After the peanuts have been dry-roasted, they must be stone-ground, milled, or blended into a paste and mixed with ginger, chicken bouillon, hot pepper, and other spices. To give the snack its iconic crunch, kuli-kuli makers carefully press the paste to remove any excess oil. Once dry, the mixture can be shaped and deep-fried.

Diners eat kuli-kuli plain, topped with a bit of sugar, or crushed and mixed into other dishes such as soaked garri (a powdery mixture often based on grain or maize) or soup. It can also be used as a flavorful topping for salads or yogurt, and some kuli-kuli fans even add it into smoothies for a protein (and flavor) kick. As far as deep-fried foods go, it's one of the most versatile in both form and function. But no matter the shape, its flavor and crunch is consistently beloved among those who try it.


          Vive la France: Les Bleus advance to World Cup final      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — They're young, they're brash and they're collectively worth a billion dollars. The one thing missing for this French squad is an international title.

Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and France are about to get that chance.

Les Bleus are headed to the World Cup final.

Samuel Umtiti clinched a 1-0 win over Belgium — and earned the approval of watching French President Emmanuel Macron in the VIP seats at St. Petersburg Stadium — by scoring on a header off a corner kick in the 51st minute on Tuesday.

"Vive la France! Vive la Republique!" France forward Antoine Griezmann shouted during postgame celebrations.

Umtiti played his part in a strong defensive effort by the French, too, helping to shut out the highest-scoring team at the tournament and leaving Belgium's golden generation of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku to regret another missed opportunity at a major tournament.

"It's me that scored," Umtiti said, "but we all delivered a big game."

France's players danced on the field after the final whistle and their fans sang in the stands long past the end of the match, surrounded by yellow-clad security.

They certainly hope to keep the party going on Sunday in the final in Moscow. France — with an average age of 26 — will face either Croatia or England, who play Wednesday at the Luzhniki Stadium in the Russian capital, and has a shot at redemption after losing its last two major finals — at the 2006 World Cup when Zinedine Zidane was sent off for a nasty head-butt and the 2016 European Championship on home soil.

"We're immensely privileged to be in the World Cup final," France coach Didier Deschamps said. "It was so painful two years ago we have to savor it."

Deschamps now has the chance to become the third person to win the World Cup as a player and a coach, after German great Franz Beckenbauer and Brazil's Mario Zagallo. As France captain, Deschamps raised soccer's most prized trophy in 1998.

Deschamps has faced some criticism for being too pragmatic and functional despite having a squad of superstars, but his team was set up superbly against an opponent that was largely restricted to only minor chances and denied on two occasions in particular by France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

He dived to his right midway through the first half to claw away Toby Alderweireld's shot, then got in front of Lukaku to punch away one of the many crosses sent in by Belgium in the final stages.

In a tournament dominated by goals from set pieces, France's goal came off a corner when Griezmann curled in the ball from the right and Umtiti got in front of tall Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini to knock in his header at the near post.

Up in the corporate seats, president Macron reacted to the goal by shaking the hand of King Philippe of Belgium as FIFA president Gianni Infantino watched on between them.

"Unfortunately for us, the difference is just a dead-ball situation, a set play," Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said. "The game was, as you can imagine, very close, very tight, and it was going to be decided (on) maybe the one that could find that final touch in the box."

After reaching the quarterfinals at both the 2014 World Cup and the European Championship in 2016, Belgium again missed the chance to get to an international final and has yet to fulfil its lofty expectations. Leading the scoring in this tournament with 14 goals, many thought this could be their year.

With Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar no longer in Russia, Hazard and Mbappe have taken over as the stars of the World Cup and there was a buzz every time either got the ball.

Yet while Hazard — Belgium's captain — faded after a strong opening 30 minutes, Mbappe was a constant threat. His first touch was after 10 seconds and, after receiving the ball on the right wing, he sped past Jan Vertonghen and then Mousa Dembele on a thrilling run.

At 19, Mbappe wasn't even born when France won the World Cup for the first and only time with a squad that is just as diverse as the one Deschamps is leading 20 years later.

Umtiti was born in Cameroon. Mbappe has Algerian-Cameroonian roots.

"It's a pure pleasure to see these players grow," Deschamps said, "and never give up."

Instead of a trip to Moscow, Belgium will return to St. Petersburg on Saturday for the third-place match no team wants to play.

IN THE STANDS

Along with the French and Gabonese presidents and the king and queen of Belgium, there was rock 'n' roll royalty watching the game.

Mick Jagger was one of the many famous faces in the stands at St. Petersburg Stadium. The Rolling Stones frontman is a big soccer fan, having attended the World Cup final in Brazil in 2014 as well as many England games.

Former Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson, who is the partner of France defender Adil Rami, also was present.

          Inbox Jukebox Track of the Day: The Title Track from the Recently Reissued 1985 Electric Africa LP by Cameroonian Funk Legend Manu Dibango      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Inbox Jukebox track of the day is Manu Dibango's "Electric Africa," the highlight of the Cameroonian saxophonist's just-reissued 1985 LP. by Dave Segal

Theres no Soul Makossa here, but this reissue of Dibangos 1985 LP exudes an air of mellow tropical celebration.
There's no "Soul Makossa" here, but this reissue of Dibango's 1985 LP exudes an air of mellow tropical celebration.

Manu Dibango, "Electric Africa" (Tidal Waves Music reissue; dist. by Light in the Attic). Arriving long after Manu Dibango's 1972 breakout hit, the oft-sampled, David Mancuso-caned "Soul Makossa," 1985's Electric Africa found the Cameroonian saxophonist/composer joining forces with producer Bill Laswell, legendary jazz keyboardist Herbie Hancock, synth magi Bernie Worrell (Parliament-Funkadelic, Talking Heads) and Wally Badarou, and other brilliant session players for a slight reinvention of his exuberant afro-jazz-funk. Its four easygoing tracks undulate with a casual gracefulness, their funk understated, their euphoria semi-muted; everything's dispersed over the long haul for an overall air of mellow tropical celebration.

Electric Africa's highlight is the title track, 10-and-a-half minutes of Manu's deep declarations contrasting with a dulcet chorus of women vocalists. Over that interplay, Mory Kanté and Nicky Skopelitis's spidery kora harp and guitar riffs, respectively (much in the vein of James Brown's guitarists Jimmy Nolen and Catfish Collins), Hancock's mercurial piano motifs, and Dibango's joyous sax stabs work up a humid head of steam, nudging you onto the dance floor with the subtlest of gestures. Oddly, the track recalls the inexhaustible buoyancy of Tom Tom Club's classic 1981 debut album, which bore obvious and reverent influences from Africa. Circle of life... of the party right here.

Tidal Waves Music has reissued Electric Africa in a limited edition of 500 on blue vinyl.

          Penn State basketball beefs up its Class of 2019 with commit from 6-foot-8 forward      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Pat Chambers now has two pledges in this recruiting cycle.

Penn State's men's basketball team has bolstered its Class of 2019 recruiting class, as the Lions added a pledge from 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward Abdou Tsimbila, from Hagerstown, Md.,  St. Maria Goretti High, on Tuesday night.

Tsimbila, who is from Cameroon and played his first season in the United States last year as a junior, was tabbed an All-Washington County pick by the Herald Mail following the 2017-2018 season.

George Mason and Towson had also offered, among others.

In announcing his commitment, Tsimbila wrote in a statement posted to his Twitter page that: 

"I am committing to this school because they have everything I need and I'm really happy to (join) a big family and I want to say thank you to Coach [Pat] Chambers and Coach (Keith) Urgo for giving me the opportunity," 

The Hearld Mail had this to say in a November scouting report:

"Tsimbila has had a major impact as a rebounder and defensive force, providing the Gaels an element they lacked last season. The broad-shouldered 6-7 junior from Cameroon also has shown a developing offensive repertoire in the low post." 

Chambers' team now have two Class of 2019 pledges, as Tsimbila joins Lynchburg, Va., 6-foot-7, 190-pound forward Patrick Kelly in the class.

The Nittany Lions are fresh off a 2017-2018 NIT Title.

When writing textbooks about slavery, which words best reflect its cold, hard reality? Some historians are dropping the word "slave" in favor of terms like "enslaved person" and "captive," arguing that these terms are more accurate. And raising a bilingual child is tough enough, but what about teaching them three languages? It's an ambitious goal, but there's help if you want to try. Plus, a class of sixth-graders wonders about the playful vocabulary of The Lord of the Rings. Where did Tolkien come up with this stuff? Also, funny school mascots, grawlixes, that melon's busted, attercop, Tomnoddy, purgolders, and dolly vs. trolley vs. hand truck.

FULL DETAILS

In an earlier episode, we discussed funny school mascot names. Listeners wrote in with more, including the Belfry Bats (the high school mascot of Belfry, Montana) and the Macon Whoopie hockey team, from Macon, Georgia.

A Fort Worth, Texas, couple disagrees about how to pronounce the word gymnast, but both JIM-nist and the more evenly stressed JIM-NAST are fine.

A musician from Youngstown, Ohio, is designing an album cover for his band's latest release. He wants to use a grawlix, one of those strings of punctuation marks that substitute for profanity. "Beetle Bailey" cartoonist Mort Walker coined the term, but is there a grammar of grawlixes?

Quiz Guy John Chaneski has a puzzle about words and phrases that people have tried to trademark, including a two-word phrase indicating that someone's employment has been terminated, which a certain presidential candidate tried unsuccessfully to claim as his own.

He's a native English speaker who's fluent in Spanish. She grew up in Cameroon speaking French. They're planning a family, and hoping to raise their children to speak all three. What are the best strategies for teaching children to speak more than two languages? The Multilingual Children's Association offers helpful tips.

Offbeat mascot names from Montana include the Powell County Wardens (so named because the high school is in the same county as the Montana State Prison), and the Missoula Loyola Sacred Heart Breakers.

Growing up in Jamaica, a woman used to hear her fashion-designer mother invoke this phrase to indicate that something was good enough, even if it was flawed: A man on a galloping horse wouldn't see it. Variations include it'll never be seen on a galloping horse and a blind man on a galloping horse wouldn't see it. The idea is that the listener to relax and take the long view. The expression has a long history in Ireland and England, and the decades of Irish influence in Jamaica may also account for her mother's having heard it.

The country of Cameroon is so named because a 15th-century Portuguese explorer was so struck by the abundance of shrimp in a local river, he dubbed it Rio dos Camaroes, or "river of shrimp."

The organization Historic Hudson Valley describes the African-American celebration of Pinkster in an exemplary way. It avoids the use of the word slave and instead uses terms such as enslaved people, enslaved Africans, and captives. It's a subtle yet powerful means of affirming that slavery is not an inherent condition, but rather one imposed from outside.

A sixth-grade teacher from San Antonio, Texas, says he and his students are reading The Lord of the Rings. They're curious about the words attercop, which means "spider" (and a relative of the word cobweb) and Tomnoddy, which means "fool." Grant recommends the book The Ring of Words, as well as these online resources: Why Did Tolkien Use Archaic Language? and A Tolkien English Glossary.

If you're in the Ozarks, you might hear the expression that means the same as water under the bridge or spilled milk: that melon's busted. The idea in all three cases is that something irrevocable has happened, and there's no going back.

A listener from Abilene, Texas, recounts the incredulous reaction he got when he was in England and asked some burly fellows for a dolly, meaning a wheeled conveyance for moving heavy loads. He asked for a two-wheeler, then a hand truck, and finally learned that what they were expecting him to ask for a trolley.

Madison East High School in Madison, Wisconsin, is the proud home of the Purgolders. That school mascot resembles a golden puma in purple attire, with a portmanteau name that combines those two colors.

This episode is hosted by Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett.

          Environmental filtering determines patterns of tree species composition in small mountains of Atlantic Central African forests      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

Abstract

The determinants of patterns of plant species composition on small mountains are poorly known, especially in Central Africa. We aimed here to identify variation in tree species composition throughout the Ngovayang Massif (southern Cameroon) and determine the relative contributions of environmental factors and spatial autocorrelation in shaping tree species composition. Vegetation surveys were conducted in fifteen 1-ha (100 m × 100 m) permanent plots established along a transect from lowland (200 m) to submontane forests (900 m) in which all trees with a diameter (dbh) ≥ 10 cm were inventoried. Data were investigated using ordination methods (Correspondence Analysis and Canonical Correspondence Analysis). At the local scale, the most important variable in determining tree species composition patterns was slope exposure, followed by distance from the ocean and altitude. Together, these environmental variables explained 28% of floristic variation among plots, and the spatial structure almost disappeared when the effects of these variables were removed. Spatial autocorrelation analysis showed that spatial variables (geographic coordinates of the plots) or geographic distance between plots explained only 1% of the total initial variance. Residual spatial variation not explained by the environmental variables probably reflects the history of vegetation and the effects of other climatic variables that were not included in this study. Floristic variation in the Ngovayang Massif is due to strong environmental heterogeneity. The sensitivity of floristic composition to environmental variables such as slope orientation and altitude suggests that tree species composition may shift with expected climate changes, such as changes in the movement of air masses, increase in mean annual temperatures or increasing severity of the dry season. Our study highlights the need for systematic on-the-ground measurements of climate variables in tropical montane areas in order to better understand the current climate regime and serve as a basis for modelling future changes.

Abstract

Measuring hunting sustainability across West/Central African forests remains a challenge. Long-term assessment of trends is crucial. Via hunter-reported surveys we collected offtake data in three villages near the Dja Biosphere Reserve (southeast Cameroon). During four months (March–June) in 2003, 2009 and 2016, we gathered information on hunters, prey species and number of carcasses brought to the three settlements. Because it was not possible to record hunter effort i.e. the time a hunter spent pursuing animals or setting traps, to calculate catch per unit effort (CPUE), we used catch per hunter per day (CPHD) to document hunter returns. We then used the changes in the mean body mass indicator (MBMI) throughout the study period to test for defaunation in the three villages. Differences in CPHD and MBMI by month and year, between villages and hunting method, were investigated using Tweedie regression models. For all species pooled, we found that the mean CPHD remained relatively constant between 2003 and 2016. There was an observed shift from traps to firearms during the study period. CPHD for each of the seven most hunted species did not vary significantly during the entire study period, and a similar change from traps to firearms was observed. MBMI also remained stable for all species pooled, but significantly declined in the remotest village. Starting MBMI values for this village were higher than for the other two settlements perhaps because wildlife here is less depleted. Although hunter effort data may be difficult to obtain over long time periods, CPHD and MBMI may be useful tools as a measure of impact of hunters on prey populations.


          State of knowledge of research in the Guinean forests of West Africa region      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

Abstract

The Guinean forests of West Africa (GFWA) region is of highest conservation value in Africa and worldwide. The aims of this review are to systematically identify and collate studies focusing on the environment in the region. We found that, after Google Scholar search, in over 112,000 results for 17 disciplines, three countries (Nigeria, Cameroon and Togo) were subjected to much more investigations than the other countries. Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone were the least studied countries, and overall there was a significant West to East increasing trend for all seven considered disciplines (Ecology, Zoology, Botany, Conservation biology, Pollution, Climate change and Ecological economy) in terms of number of results. Within ‘Ecology’ ‘macroecology and biodiversity’ was the most studied subdiscipline. Baseline taxonomic studies in ‘Zoology’ and ‘Botany’ received little interest, particularly in 2006–2016. For ‘Conservation biology’, studies focusing on ‘protected areas’ were more numerous than for any other subsector, followed by ‘biodiversity surveys’. Our analysis revealed that there were significantly more studies focusing on forests than on mangrove areas. Our results pointed out that, there is an urgent need for more rigorous taxonomical and fine-scale distribution studies of organisms across the whole region, not only for the traditionally overlooked groups (e.g. invertebrates). It is also stressed that studies of macropatterns in conservation biology research for the region should be performed by more reliable data at the more local scale, given the misuse that has been done by general studies of these limited/biased data for inferring patterns. Long-term longitudinal studies on biodiversity patterns of important forest sites and population biology of selected populations are urgently needed, as these have been almost entirely neglected to date. Crucial issues are still to be solved: for instance, it remains fully unresolved whether wildlife can best be protected through the promotion of human economic development or through integral conservation of important biodiversity areas.

“It’s like Africa going to the final” is a disposition many Twitter users across the continent harbour after last night’s semi-final.
France beat Belgium 1-0 in a drab affair in St. Petersburg, but the win is seemingly not just a highlight for France itself. More than half of the French squad can reportedly play for a team based in Africa if they so wished, based on parental nationality.
In fact, the man who scored the winner last night, Samuel Umtiti, was born in Cameroon.
As a result, many users across Twitter are now supporting France as an African team.

Gyakran ismételt kérdések
Kérdés: Minek köszönhető sok esetben a boltinál kedvezőbb ár?
Válasz: Az árucikkek egyenesen a külföldi gyártótól érkeznek, ezáltal elkerülik a számtalan közvetítői költséget, melyet a nagykereskedők és boltosok tesznek rá, nem kell boltot fentartani, eladókat fizetni stb.
Kérdés: A hirdetésben szereplő képek megfelelnek a valóságnak?
Válasz: Igen, pontosan azt a cipőt kapod ami a képen van, nem hasonlót!
Kérdés: Miért ilyen hosszú a postázási idő?
Válasz: Mert a termékek nagyon messziről érkeznek, külföldről.
Kérdés:  Miért nincs lehetőség utánvételre?
Válasz:  A termék közvetlenül vásárló címére érkezik a beszállítótól.  Az utánvétel lényege, hogy a vevő által, az átvételkor kifizetett pénz visszamegy a feladónak, mivel a feladó ebben az esetben a gyár, így neki megy vissza a pénz. Ebből kifolyólag nem oldható meg az utánvétel, illetve értelmetlenül drága lenne. (kb a megadott postaköltség duplája)
Kérdés:  Miért ilyen drága a postaköltség?
Válasz:  Mert a termékek nagyon messziről érkeznek, nem a posta belföldi díjai érvényesek a csomagokra.
Kérdés:  Ha többet rendelek mennyibe kerül a postaköltség?

FIGYELEM NAGYON FONTOS!!!
Hosszabb ideje vaterázom és rengeteg vásárlóval találkoztam én magam is már kb 2300 sikeres üzleten vagyok túl (értékelések). Sajnos sok olyan vásárlóval kerültem kapcsolatba, akik mielőtt tőlem vásároltak volna, olyan eladótól is rendeltek, aki nem adott számlát és nem is volt bejelentve. Ez esetben a kedves vevőt semmi sem védi, futhat a pénze után, ha nem érkezne meg a termék, már pedig nem kevés példa volt erre. Ezzel engem, becsületes, bejelentett vállalkozót is kellemetlen helyzetbe hozva.
Minden esetben mérlegeljen mielőtt vásárol, hogy megéri-e ez Önnek. Lehet, hogy a pár ezer forintos árkülönbség csábító (nem fizetnek adót, könyvelőt stb), de lehet, hogy közben tízezreket veszít.

Ha konkrét elképzelése van egy megvásárolni kívánt cipőről, ne habozzon elküldeni nekem a képét üzenetben, és kis időn belül küldök egy árajánlatot, ha a gyártótól beszerzhető
SZEMÉLYES ÁTVÉTEL ÉS UTÁNVÉTELRE LEHETŐSÉG SEMMILYEN ESETBEN SINCS
Nagyon fontos, hogy nálam minden cipő eredeti dobozában érkezi, ezért plusz költséget nem számolok fel.
Soke eladó vagy plusz pénzt kér el, vagy doboz nélkül szállítja a cipőt, így az út közben gyűrődik, sérül, deformálódik
Minden esetben azt a cipőt kapja, amelyik a képen szerepel, NEM HASONLÓT.
A Postaköltséget mindíg a Szállítási és garanciális feltételek fül alatt találja, sajnos 2 vagy több termék rendelésénél nem tudom összevonni a postaköltséget 1 termék = 1 csomag, de több termék vásárlása esetén egy kis kedvezményt tudok adni. Szállítási idő 15-45 munkanap
Vásárlást követően felveszem önnel a kapcsolatot emailban, az esetek 97%-ban aznap, de legkésőbb 3 napon belül (csúszás hétvégén szokott előfordulni) és megírom a további teendőket.
Ez után 5 munkanapja van az ellenérték elutalására, ha 5 munkanapon belül nem érkezik be az utalás és az esetleges kést nem jelzi felém, kénytelen leszek az adésvételt negatívval értékelni, a fölösleges vatera részesedés fizetés elkerülése végett.
Fizetés minden esetben előreutalással oldható meg, utánvételre nincs lehetőség, mivel a csomag külföldről érkezik és értelmetlenül drága lenne.

All over the world migrant workers are sending money home to their families. The money pays hospital bills and school fees, buys land, builds houses and sets up small businesses. The cash goes from the US back to Mexico, from the Gulf back to India, from the UK back to Somalia, and from South Africa back to Malawi, Zimbabwe and the rest of southern Africa. 

But what these workers probably do not realize, since they usually only ever send to one country, is that the cost of sending money varies greatly. Now a study of the cost of remittances, carried out by London's Overseas Development Institute with support from the fund-raising charity Comic Relief, has revealed that transfers to African countries cost around half as much again as the global average, and twice as much as transfers to Latin America. 

The ODI estimates that if remittance charges were brought down to the world average, the money saved could educate an extra 14 million primary school children, half of all those currently out of school on the continent.

The bulk of this money goes through money transfer companies rather than banks, since the recipients are unlikely to have bank accounts, and transfer companies are quick, efficient and have a wide network of agents. But just two big international players dominate the business in Africa, Moneygram and Western Union, and participants in a meeting to launch the research were highly critical of the way they seemed to be abusing their market dominance.

Rwanda's High Commissioner in London, Williams Nkurunziza, said he was shocked at what the report revealed. “If you look at the remittances, 30 or 40 percent of the money that goes to Africa goes to rural areas,” he said. “This money goes to the people who are most needy, and you are allowing a multinational corporation to take bread out of the mouth of hungry children. This is not what I would call responsible capitalism!”

Glenys Kinnock, opposition spokesman on International Development in the upper house of the UK parliament, who chaired the meeting, called on the country's financial regulatory authority to intervene over the issue of excessive charges. “It is not a technocratic issue,” she said, “although it may sound like one. It is also about people's lives and the future of their children... These things have to change. We can't put up any longer with the prospect of its making things so difficult, very often impossible, for people who have such needs.”

At the end of last year, when the ODI did its research, the fees and charges to send money to most of Africa were around 12 percent - a bit less to Zambia or Tanzania, a bit more to Uganda, Malawi and the Gambia - against a world average of just over 8 percent. Even that is quite expensive; the governments of the G8 and G20 countries have pledged themselves to working towards reducing this to 5 percent.

It found that in more than 30 countries the two big players had more than 50 percent of the market; and in 10 countries they had more than 90 percent. Sometimes either Moneygram or Western Union had an effective monopoly, but even where both companies were present it did not necessarily mean that customers had much choice; one company could still have a monopoly of outlets in a particular area, and the companies habitually make their paying-out agents sign contracts promising not to also act as agents for their rivals. 

Somalia different

Significantly, the one country where the big two are absent - Somalia - has far lower remittance charges; transfers go through a number of smaller, competing companies.

Competition has been limited by the fallout from the US “war on terror”, with the banks who do bulk international transfers citing money-laundering and anti-terrorism regulations as the reason they are reluctant to extend facilities to smaller companies. Now only the biggest of the Somali companies, Dahabshiil, still has an account with a major British bank (Barclays) and even that concession was forced by a court case and is only until other arrangements can be put in place.

Inter-Africa transfers cost most

But if charges to send money to Africa from outside are steep, the cost of sending money from one African country to another can be eye-watering. 

Dilip Ratha, who works on these issues for the World Bank says exchange controls are one of the reasons the rates are so high; in some places sending money out of the country is illegal. “So if you are sending money,” he says, “let's say from Benin to Ghana, it is actually allowed (in some countries it's not even allowed) but first the CFA has to be passed through into euros or sterling or dollars, and then it has to be transferred back into the local cedi, and in both cases you pay commission. Some sort of regional currency market really needs to be created.” 

"So if you are sending money, let's say from Benin to Ghana, it is actually allowed (in some countries it's not even allowed) but first the CFA has to be passed through into euros or sterling or dollars, and then it has to be transferred back into the local cedi, and in both cases you pay commission. Some sort of regional currency market really needs to be created"  

The report found 10 routes with bank transfer charges over 20 percent. Charges from Nigeria to Ghana were 22 percent. To send from Tanzania to the rest of East Africa, or from South Africa to its near neighbours is particularly expensive, peaking at 25 percent for bank transfers between South African and Malawi. Some of the fees charged by money transfer companies are even higher; if you send money that way from Ghana to Nigeria you may have to pay a staggering 39 percent.

In some places mobile phone based systems like M-Pesa have made in-country transfers much easier and cheaper, but they haven't really taken off internationally, largely because conservative, inflexible regulatory systems insist that all international transfers must go through conventional banks. And African banks tend to have very high charges, often because they are forced by governments to finance government projects or make uncommercial loans. 

Chukwuemeka Chikezie of the Up Africa consultancy told IRIN a lot of the responsibility lay with African governments. “One of the reasons M-Pesa took off in Kenya was because the authorities nurtured and enabled innovation. If you look at other countries the regulators have tended to stifle innovation. They are very risk-averse and they don't enable even limited experiments to prove that the markets can absorb technical innovation.”

In addition, money-laundering regulations are putting impossible demands on systems designed to serve the poor, requiring, for instance, “know your customer” procedures like taking copies of ID documents for anyone receiving an international payout. Selma Ribica of M-Pesa points out this is an impossibility for agents in rural areas with no power supply. She told IRIN she would like to see a more realistic, tiered approach with much lighter regulation for small international transfers (under, say, US$200-300) which are most unlikely to have anything to do with money laundering.

Beware Facebook, Walmart

M-Pesa depends on moving money between different customers' mobile phone accounts. Now people are beginning to think of other kinds of electronic “purses” which might be linked in the same way. 

Facebook has just proposed allowing transfers between customers who have accounts with the company which they normally use to make payments for online games. So far this is only proposed for payments within the European Union, but Facebook has a huge geographical spread and has said it is keen to extend its reach in Africa. 

And the big profits made by the transfer companies are tempting other players into the market. The latest to announce it is starting money transfers is the US supermarket chain Walmart, with recipients being able to pick up their cash from any shop in the chain. To start with this will only work within the United States and Puerto Rico, but Walmart is an international group with nearly 350 stores in South Africa, and it also has a presence in Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Malawi and Mozambique, opening up the tempting prospect of a new, and cheaper way for workers to send money home.

All these new ways of sending money aim to undercut Moneygram and Western Union. Now Western Union has responded by offering so-called “zero-fee” transfers to Africa if the money is sent from a bank account rather by credit card or cash. This would mean a saving of just under £5 ($8.40) for someone sending $100 from the UK to Liberia. The company would still make money (nearly $4) by using a favourable exchange rate, but it would bring the cost down to just below the G8/G20 target. 

For African's hard-pressed and hard-working migrants and their families back home, change may - finally - be on the way.

          West Africa gears up to contain Ebola spread      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

As the Ebola caseload rises to over 5,350, aid agencies and governments in countries not yet affected by the deadly virus are gearing up for its potential spread across new borders by pre-positioning supplies, training health workers, identifying isolation centres, and disseminating prevention campaign messages, among other activities.

Countries that share a land border with the affected countries, including Côte d'Ivoire, Guinea Bissau, and Mali, are considered to be most at risk.

"It is vitally important that, countries - especially surrounding countries that don't have Ebola cases as of yet - are prepared for a worst case scenario," said Pieter Desloovere, a spokesperson for the World Health Organization (WHO).

In August, WHO issued an Ebola Response Roadmap to help countries across the region limit the spread of the virus. One of its three objectives is to strengthen the ability of all countries to detect and deal with any potential cases.

"The reason that Ebola started in Guinea and has since spread to Liberia and other countries is that no one was paying attention," said Grev Hunt, the UN Children's Fund's (UNICEF's) sub-regional coordinator for the Ebola outbreak. "We were caught unaware. But now, we are paying very close attention to what is going on and making sure the same thing won't happen again."

Unlike in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, where response plans and training materials had to be created from scratch, UNICEF is now replicating those resources and giving them to neighbouring countries, saving time and effort.

The International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) says they have put in place Ebola preparedness and response activities in 11 countries across West Africa, and many local and international NGOs have been pre-positioning medical supplies, training health workers and educating the public.

"Failing to plan is actually planning to fail," said Unni Krishnan, the head of disaster preparedness and response for Plan International. "And we know from previous disasters that a dollar you put towards preparedness... tends to save thousands, even hundreds of thousands, of lives."

Preparedness funds

Key to prevention and preparedness in at-risk countries is having access to timely funding, said the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). Senegal currently has US$5.7 million at the ready to use towards Ebola preparation and prevention.

Mali has around $3.6 million and Côte d'Ivoire $2.9 million. In Guinea Bissau, where the health system is extremely weak, only $800,000 is currently available for Ebola-related activities. "It's quite a fragile situation right now," said Daniel Sanha, a communication officers for the Guinea Bissau Red Cross. "We have a contingency plan in place, but the Red Cross still has no funds to implement any Ebola intervention activities. At the same time, the government doesn't have enough funds or equipment to take all the necessary precautions."

Mass public education campaigns

National media campaigns, including radio shows, TV programmes and other on-air broadcasts, are now under way in all sub-regional countries to educate people about Ebola and give them enough information to protect themselves, as well as to prevent rumours and misunderstandings from spreading.

"This is the first time we have had an Ebola outbreak in West Africa and part of the challenge we are facing is that people have no idea what the disease actually is or how it is spread," Desloovere said.

Volunteers in Senegal, Mali, Côte d'Ivoire and Guinea-Bissau are handing out pamphlets and flyers door to door, as well as posting them in public areas. Social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, along with text messages to mobile phone subscribers, are being used by Health Ministries and aid agencies to transmit information and to remind people to practise safe hygiene measures, and to go to a clinic if they detect symptoms.

UNICEF says the messages, which have all been approved by the Ministries of Health, are transmitted in local languages and in culturally appropriate ways. Rather than urging families not to bury their dead in the traditional way, for instance, aid agencies work with communities to find a safer burial procedure that both are comfortable with.

"Our message is very simple," said Buba Darbo, the head of disaster management for the Gambian Red Cross. "Don't touch a sick person, don't touch a dead body. If everyone follows this advice they will prevent themselves from getting Ebola."

Some messaging specifies that people should avoid shaking hands as a gesture of greeting.

Aid agencies have also begun working with religious leaders and local community leaders to spread messages about what to do, and not do, in case of possible Ebola infections.

Health worker training

Doctors and nurses across the region are being trained to spot possible cases, as well as to follow protocol for reporting suspected cases, how to prevent any further contamination and how to protect themselves.

"Educating and protecting our health workers is a top priority," said Ibrahima Sy, a grants manager and health expert with the Open Society Initiative of West Africa (OSIWA). "We need to put at their disposal all the materials they need to avoid contamination, and arm them with the information they need to avoid further spread of this virus."

In Côte d'Ivoire, for example, the Red Cross has been conducting staged simulations of Ebola cases, so that health workers know exactly what to do if they encounter a suspected case.

"We hope Ebola never comes here, but if a case were to be declared today, with the emergency health system we have in place, we are ready to take charge of it," said Franck Kodjo, the communications officer for Côte d'Ivoire's Red Cross. "All the actors, from the Ministry of Health to the local volunteers, we are prepared to take it on."

Other countries, such as The Gambia, have been training healthcare workers on how to handle the dead bodies of suspected cases.

Thus far over 300 health workers in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone have contracted Ebola, according to WHO.

Specialized prevention and response teams

To help coordinate prevention efforts and put such measures in place, many countries have created multi-sectorial committees to implement the measures. Senegal's National Crisis Committee, for example, now has a 10-committee unit dedicated to Ebola prevention and containment. They have been working with the Ministry of Health and other key partners, including the Senegalese Red Cross and WHO, to engage in activities such as resource mobilization, media and communication, surveillance, logistics, security and clinical care. The Gambia has a similar seven-committee Ebola response unit, which works alongside the government and various health partners and NGOs to implement prevention measures.

Pre-positioning materials

Items such as soap, chlorine, gloves, disinfectant materials, medicines, medical equipment, and hygiene kits are being stocked in countries across the region. In Mali, protection kits have also been given to some of the volunteers who are involved in contact tracing and mass education campaigns.

Identifying isolation and treatment centres

Some treatment centres and isolation units in at-risk countries have been pre-identified, but not in sufficient numbers, say aid agency staff.

Cameroon now has isolation centres and laboratories in selected hospitals throughout the country, as well as a quarantine zone in the Southwest Region of the country, near the Nigerian border. The Gambia has also established three Ebola treatment centres: one in the greater Banjul area, the second in the country's "middle belt", and the third in the far east. Senegal has established an isolation unit and has testing facilities at its Institute Pasteur, as do the Institute Pasteur in Côte d'Ivoire and laboratories in Mali. Guinea-Bissau has not yet identified isolation units.

Border closings and surveillance measures

Despite strong recommendations by WHO not to close borders, or to restrict travel to or from the affected countries, seven African countries have decided not to allow anyone from an Ebola-affected country in or out. Senegal and Côte d'Ivoire, for example, have shut all land, sea and air borders with Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia. Guinea Bissau has closed its land borders with Guinea, and Guinea, in an attempt to contain the outbreak, has shut its land borders with Sierra Leone and Liberia. Cameroon has also closed its land and air borders with Nigeria though refugees fleeing Boko Haram attacks have been crossing the border.

All countries in the sub-region now have health workers posted at all main border crossings and points of entry, including the airports, where incoming travellers are screened for Ebola-like symptoms.

In Nigeria, where 21 cases have been confirmed, health workers are also going around communities to check people's temperatures and seek out the sick. Many schools, shops and restaurants now have handwashing stations set up outside their doors.

"It has become an everyday sight to see temperature-taking devices both at major border crossings, as well as hospitals and offices," said O. Nwakpa, of the Nigerian Red Cross. "They take our temperature and give you hand sanitizer each time you enter a building."

In Mauritania, not only do incoming travellers go through health checks, but outgoing travellers do as well, as the capital, Nouakchott, is considered a "last stop" before Europe.

Many communities in border areas most at risk have also created neighborhood watch programmes, in which people are encouraged to report anyone who shows Ebola-like symptoms.

Countries, such as Burkina Faso and Senegal, have set up toll-free numbers for people to call and report suspected cases.

Restricting public gatherings

To avoid potential bodily contact, many countries, such as The Gambia, have restricted or prohibited large public gatherings.

In Burkina Faso, the government has cancelled important high-level meetings, including the African Union Employment and Poverty Reeducation conference, which was scheduled to be held in the first week of September.

NGOs and health volunteers across the region say they have stopped performing educational theatre sketches on Ebola for fear of encouraging crowds to gather.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES: ‘I am not a man,’ bearded TV guest insists in viral clip 

Bearded and with a masculine-sounding voice, the guest with the receding hairline on a French television show quickly takes exception to being identified as a man in a video clip that’s going viral.
“You’re not a man?” the host asks in disbelief in French.



“No. No. I don’t know why you’re saying I am a man. But I am not a man,” the guest replies.
“Your appearance,” the host proffers.
“Ah, well, we must not confuse gender expression with gender identity,” the individual continues.
Put online only seven days ago, that short video clip – it’s less than two minutes in length – on YouTube has already been seen more than 232,000 times.



It seems the guest identifies as “gender non-binary,” neither a man nor a woman.
And even though that guest certainly appears to have light-colored skin, he is equally quick to point out, when someone notes the panel on which the sits is comprised of four Caucasians, that this too is apparently a mistaken perception.
“I’m half-Lebanese,” the manly-looking individual says. “We should question all our stereotypical presuppositions because without even asking you have assumed I am a man and, because of my appearance, you consider me to be Caucasian.”
In the comments section below the video on YouTube, some of those who watched the video mocked the guest’s insistence of a non-Caucasian, non-gender binary identity.
“I am not a man, I’m a dragon who is half-Cameroonian,” wrote someone identified as Anthony Post.
Not to be outdone in chiding the TV show’s guest, another YouTube user claimed also to not be a man but rather a non-binary Yamaha bisexual V8 turbo half-lawnmower, half-tractor. Other YouTube users were equally silly with their suggestions.
At the Le Journal de Montreal daily newspaper in Quebec, journalist Mathieu Bock-Côté tried to make sense of it all in a column headlined A Man Is Not A Woman. After suggesting that people who feel like strangers to their own biological sex must be treated with empathy and insisting good faith efforts need to be made to accommodate them, Bock-Côté also called for common sense to prevail.
“Let’s get real: these are the outliers and a society cannot be redesigned based on them,” Bock-Côté wrote in French. “We cannot let the radical left exploit their unhappiness to justify its agenda of deconstructing identity.”
Entire societies are getting drunk on identity politics and the deconstruction of identity – and no longer even know how to stop the process, the columnist warned.
“They are throwing themselves into the abyss and it is young people who will pay the price for the disorientation caused by the destruction of fundamental points of reference,” Bock-Côté wrote. “They are already paying for it.”

          MFAHAMU SAMUEL UMTITI MCHEZAJI ALIYEIVUSHA UFARANSA HADI FAINALI KOMBE LA DUNIA 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

Ufaransa watakutana na mshindi kati ya England na Croatia kwenye fainali ya Kombe la Dunia nchini Urusi baada ya kuwashinda majirani wao Ubelgiji kwenye nusu fainali mjini St Petersburg.

Mechi ya fainali itachezwa Jumapili uwanjani Lzhiniki mjini Moscow saa tatu usiku saa za Afrika Mashariki.
Ubelgiji wamesalia na mechi moja ya kuamua atakayemaliza wa tatu, mechi ambayo itachezwa Jumamosi.
Bao pekee la mechi ya nusu fainali lilifungwa na beki Samuel Umtiti baada ya kona iliyopigwa na Antoine Griezmann.

Mchezaji huyu aliyewavusha Ufaransa hadi fainali ni nani?

Samuel Yves Umtiti huchezea klabu ya Barcelona ya Uhispania.
Ni mchezaji wa miaka 24 ambaye alizaliwa mnamo 14 Novemba mwaka 1993 mjini Yaounde, Cameroon. Mamake ni Annie Ngo Um lakini babake hajulikani ni nani. Ana ndugu kwa jina Yannick Umtiti.
Yeye kwa kawaida huwa ni beki wa kati.
Ni mchezaji mrefu kwa kimo, kimo chake ni futi sita (1.83m) jambo ambalo huenda lilimsaidia katika kufunga bao la kichwa dhidi ya Ubelgiji ambapo alikuwa anakamiliana na mchezaji mwingine mrefu wa kimo anayefahamika sana kwa mipira ya kichwa, Marouane Fellaini.
Kutokana na kwamba alizaliwa Cameroon, ni mchezaji ambaye alikuwa na fursa ya kuichezea timu ya taifa ya Cameroon. Ana uraia wa Cameroon na Ufaransa.
Juhudi za Shirikisho la Soka la Cameroon na nyota wao wa zamani wa kimataifa Roger Milla za kumshawishi aiwakilishe Cameroon hazikufua dafu.
Alizaliwa katika maisha ya umaskini na alikuwa tu ndio ameanza kuzoea maisha ya Yaounde pale familia aliyokuwa anaishi nayo ilipofunganya virago na kuhamia Ufaransa katika viunga vya mji wa Lyon. Kutokana na ufukara mamake alikuwa amemkabidhi kwa jamaa aishi naye akiwa bado mdogo. Kuna utata hata hivyo kuhusu iwapo alisafiri na jamaa waliokuwa wanamlea au na mamake mara ya kwanza kwenda Ufaransa.
Baada ya kukaa miezi kadha Villeurbanne ambapo alilelewa katika jamii ya wahamiaji kutoka Cameroon, hatimaye walihamia Menival.

Mwaka aliohamia Ufaransa, 1995, ilikuwa si muda mrefu sana baada ya Roger Milla kuvuma sana akichezea Cameroon jambo ambalo lilichochea wahamiaji wengi wa Afrika waliokuwa nchini Ufaransa kukumbatia kandanda. Ni kipindi hicho ambapo wachezaji nyota kama vile Paul Pogba, Raphael Varane na Romelu Lukaku walikuwa watoto.
Umtiti alianza kuonyesha ustadi wa kusakata gozi akiwa na miaka mitano hivi ambapo kwa makubaliano kati ya shule yake na mamake aliruhusiwa kuifuata ndoto yake.
Njiani kati ya nyumbani kwao na shuleni kulikuwa na uwanja wa klabu ya soka ya Menival FC na huko ndiko alipoanza kuchezea soka.
Rais wa zamani wa klabu hiyo Said Intidam anamkumbuka: "Alikuwa na miaka mitano tu lakini angeweza kucheza katika mchezo wa wachezaji 11 kila upande bila matatizo."
Rais wa sasa wa klabu hiyo Judi Bouzama anasema tofauti kati yake na wachezaji wengine ilionekana wazi.

"Hakuwa mchezaji wa kiwango cha Menival, alikuwa i mchezaji wa klabu kubwa kama vile Olympique Lyonnais au Saint-Etienne," amenukuliwa na mtandao wa SportEnglish.
Alianza kwenda Lyon kujifunza soka akiwa na miaka tisa mwaka 2001 na kuibuka kuwa miongoni mwa wachezaji nyota katika kikisi cha wachezaji chipukizi.
Alianza kama mshambuliaji, baadaye akawa anacheza safu ya kati kabla ya mwishowe kuanza kucheza kama beki.
Baada ya kukaa miaka 11 akijifunza soka akademi ya Lyon, aliichezea timu kubwa ya klabu hiyo mara ya kwanza Januari 2012 na kufikia msimu wa 2015/16 alitawazwa mchezaji bora wa msimu na mashabiki wa klabu hiyo ambapo alimshinda Alexandre Lacazette ambaye kwa sasa huichezea Arsenal.
Alikuwa amewachezea mechi 170 za ushindani na kufunga mabao matano, na kusaidia ufungaji wa mabao mengine mawili.
Ni beki stadi ambaye kipaji chake kilitambuliwa na Barcelona na akanunuliwa €25 milioni (£21.2 milioni) Julai mwaka 2016 kutoka Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon) ya Ufaransa ambapo alikuwa mchezaji wa kutegemewa sana.
Umtiti alitafutwa na Barcelona kuimarisha safu yao ya ulinzi na zaidi kujaza pengo lililoachwa na nyota Carles Puyol baada ya Jeremy Mathieu na Thomas Vermaelen kuonekana kutoimudu vyema kazi hiyo.

Alichezea Barcelona mara ya kwanza 17 Agosti 2016 katika mechi ya Super Cup ya Uhispania ambapo walishinda 3-0 dhidi ya Sevilla. Aliwafungia bao la kwanza 4 Machi 2017 dhidi ya Celta de Vigo. Siku zilivyosonga, aliunda ushirikiano wa karibu sana na Gerard Pique na Jordi Alba katika safu ya ulinzi na alikuwa katika timu iliyofanikiwa kuandikisha historia kwa kujikwamua dhidi ya Paris Saint Germain Ligi ya Klabu Bingwa Ulaya mwaka 2017 baada ya kushindwa 4-0 mechi ya kwanza lakini wakashinda 6-1 mechi ya marudiano.
Alishinda Copa Del Rey 2016-17 akiwa na wachezaji wengine kama vile Lionel Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez Barcelona.

Kuichezea timu ya taifa

Umtiti aliitwa kuichezea timu ya taifa ya Ufaransa katika Euro 2016 ambapo Ufaransa walikuwa wenyeji ambapo aliwekwa kikosi na Didier Deschamps baada ya kuumia kwa Jeremy Mathieu.
Aliwachezea mara ya kwanza michuano hiyo hatua ya robofainali dhidi ya Iceland baada ya beki wao mwingine Adil Rami kupigwa marufuku kucheza mechi moja.
Uchezaji wake mzuri ulimfanya kuchezeshwa kikosi cha kuanza mechi na kwa kipindi kilichosalia michuano hiyo. Alicheza nusufainali dhidi ya Ujerumani na kwenye fainali waliposhindwa na Ureno.
Alikuwa ndiye mchezaji wa kwanza wa ndani uwanjani tangu Gabriel De Michele katika Kombe la Dunia 1966 kuchezeshwa mara ya kwanza katika timu ya taifa wakati wa michuano mikubwa.

Image captionUmtiti alijiunga na Barcelona mwaka 2016

Aliwafungia Ufaransa bao lake la kwanza 13 Juni 2017 kwa kuwasawazishia dhidi ya England mjini Paris katika mechi ambayo walishinda 3-2.
Kabla ya kujiunga na timu kuu ya taifa, alikuwa amecheza katika timu za taifa za wachezaji chipukizi mara 47 na kufunga mabao matatu.

Anasemaje kuhusu Cameroon?

Bado hajakata uhusiano wake na taifa hilo la Afrika.
Kwenye mahojiano na FranceFootball, alisema: "Bado nina jamaa Yaounde na bado huwa twawasiliana kwa simu, lakini sina kumbukumbu nyingi kuhusu maisha yangu ya miaka miwili huko Cameroon," alisema.
"Nimezuru huko mara mbili, ni sehemu ya miziz yangu. Shirikisho lao la soka liliniomba niichezee Cameroon mara kadha, washauri wangu walikutana na Roger Milla kutokana na ombi lake, kwa heshima. Walisikiliza maoni yangu, lakini hakukuwa na mabadiliko yooyte. Nilikuwa tayari nimefanya uamuzi wangu, nilikuwa nimeufikiria vyema.
"Tangu mwanzoni, nilitaka kuichezea Ufaransa. Sijui kama Cameroon walikerwa na uamuzi wangu, lakini niliufanya uamuzi wangu na lazima uheshimiwe, watu wapende wasipende."

Uhusiano na Mitandao ya kijamii

Mchezaji huyu bado hajafunga ndoa rasmi lakini anadaiwa kuwa na uhusiano na Alexandra Dualauroy mwenye asili ya Colombia.
Umtiti ana wafuasi wengi kwenye mitandao ya kijamii na hasa Instagram ambapo kufikia sasa ana wafuasi 4.1 milioni.
Yeye huwapenda sana wanyama na ana mbwa kwa jina Osito ambaye mara kwa mara hupakia picha za video zake kwenye Instagram.

          Niger: Niger: Country Operation Update, June 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Source: UN High Commissioner for Refugees
Country: Algeria, Cameroon, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan

KEY FIGURES

  • 1,536 Refugees evacuated temporarily from Libya to Niger as part of the ETM (Emergency Transit Mechanism) from November 2017 – June 2018

  • 2,013 Persons profiled by UNHCR in Agadez seeking asylum

  • 17,758 Persons internally displaced in the Tillaberi region

Operational Context

The key situations include:

  1. The Mali situation: began in 2012 with the outbreak of conflict in northern Mail. The regions of Tillaberi and Tahoua bordering Mali and hosting the majority of the refugees are increasingly affected by insecurity and terrorism. A State of Emergency was declared last year, and extended for a further 6 months in February 2018. There are currently 58,035 Malian refugees in Niger. UNHCR aims to support the socio-economic integration of these refugees and the closure of the camps by the end of 2019 through urbanization and other programmes aimed at integration. A regional EU Trust Fund project was recently launched aimed at strengthening the resilience of displaced populations in northern Mali and supporting peaceful coexistence between communities.

  2. The Nigeria situation: began in 2013, with the arrival of the first Nigerian refugees across the border fleeing Boko Haram. The situation deteriorated with the first attacks in Niger territory in 2015. There are over 250,000 displaced persons in the region. The majority live in spontaneous sites or with the local population, while UNHCR manages one refugee camp, with 14,130 people (as of 3 July 2018). Another EU Trust Fund project is ongoing aimed at supporting economic recovery and municipal investments through the construction of durable housing.

  3. Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs): The displaced population in the Diffa region is extremely mixed, including refugees, IDPs and Returnees. Efforts are underway to complete biometric registration of all displaced persons, including IDPs, who are often faced with similar protection risks as refugees. However, the IDP situation in Niger has become more complex with increasing insecurity in the region of Tillaberi, bordering Mali. In 2018, attacks and insecurity in the area have resulted in the internal displacement of at least 17,758 people so far. Protection monitoring, advocacy, capacity building sessions and coordinated efforts with humanitarian actors are ongoing to ensure close follow up on the situation.

  4. Mixed Migration: Niger is a major crossroads of migratory movements northwards towards Libya,
    Algeria and the Mediterranean. These migratory flows constitute mixed migration, including economic migrants as well as persons in need of international protection. In Agadez, UNHCR works to identify asylum seekers within the migratory flows and works with the government, as well as IOM and NGOs to provide these persons with information and assistance. 2,013 persons, mostly Sudanese, are currently profiled by UNHCR in Agadez. 24% of them are minors and 202 are unaccompanied or separated children. The situation has become more complex in the last months, with the addition of downward movements from Libya and Algeria.

  5. Emergency Transit Mechanism (ETM): This unique programme aims to provide life-saving protection, assistance and long-term solutions to extremely vulnerable refugees trapped in detention in Libya, through temporary evacuation to Niger. The aim is to deliver protection and identify durable solutions, including resettlement for these refugees, who are mainly Eritrean, Somalian, Ethiopian, and Sudanese. Their profiles mainly include survivors of torture or other forms of violence in the country of origin and/or transit countries (e.g. Libya) and others with compelling protection needs. Many of them are unaccompanied children (approximately 260) and women and girls at risk. To date, 1,536 people have been evacuated from Libya to Niger and a total of 203 individuals have departed for resettlement from Niger to France, the Netherlands, Sweden and Switzerland. Other countries offering resettlement places are Germany, the UK, Finland, Canada,
    Belgium, Malta, Norway and the USA.

West Africa and the First World War
https://media.nationalarchives.gov.uk/index.php/west-africa-first-world-war/

The First World War had a great impact on West Africa, as Britain ordered the invasion of German colonies in Cameroon and Togoland, using its own colonies as base. The West African Frontier Force, drawn from Sierra Leone, Ghana, Nigeria and Gambia played a key role in the campaign. War had also had a great impact on the civilian population, as the British drew off workers and resources. How did African soldiers experience the campaign, and what did the war mean for West African societies as a whole?

          Exeter team receives project funding to improve diabetes care in Africa      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A team from the University of Exeter has been awarded a £2 million grant to improve the detection and treatment of diabetes in sub-Saharan Africa. Sub-Saharan Africa is an area where diabetes is major cause of poor health outcomes, affecting 7% of adults, and more research is needed to address key clinical questions into the care and management of the condition. The Exeter researchers will be working to increase diagnosis rates and raise standards of diabetes care as part of a research collaboration. The funding has come from National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). The team comprises Professor Andrew Hattersley CBE and Dr Angus Jones, from the University of Exeter Medical School, which has won a string of international awards for work combining genetic diagnosis with clinical treatment to help people with genetic subtypes of diabetes across the world. Dr Jones said: "We cannot apply our understanding of diabetes in the West to diabetes care in sub-Saharan Africa, because both the diabetes and the environment in which medical care is provided are significantly different. "This collaboration will allow us to start to answer fundamental questions about diabetes detection and treatment needed for effective patient care." The work will involve building on partnerships in Uganda and Cameroon already established by the Exeter researchers. Prof Hattersley added: "Together with fantastic colleagues in Africa, we hope to train the next generation of clinical researchers, and build crucial research capacity in sub-Saharan Africa. We're delighted to have this opportunity." Professor Moffatt Nyirenda, who is in charge of research into chronic diseases at MRC/UVRI &LSHTM Uganda Research Unit will be part of the project. Prof Nyirenda said: "Diabetes is rapidly becoming a major health challenge in Africa, but with a lot of specific questions regarding its clinical course and what the right approaches to management are. "We are therefore extremely delighted to collaborate with one of the best diabetes research teams in the world to address these fundamental questions. We are particularly happy because this partnership has been designed to create long-term scientific capacity in Africa."

          How Will We Remember Belgium After this World Cup (If at All)?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Only eight countries have ever won a men’s World Cup. Depending on who manufactures your globe, that leaves something on the order of 187 loser nations. If Belgium ever had a chance to leave the latter camp and join the elite ranks of international soccer champs, it was going to be in 2018. After years of disappointing missteps, Belgium’s lauded “Golden Generation” was playing with overdue cohesiveness and swagger. A thrilling run in Russia fell short, however, when it lost to France 1–0 in Tuesday’s semifinal. Welcome back to the 187 Club, gang. Those of us here in the U.S. have kept your seat warm for you.

Thanks to that annoyingly sticky “Golden Generation” tag, it’s hard to appreciate this Belgium team right now. It’s too easy to look in the rearview at squads that wasted opportunities in previous tournaments, just as it’s tempting to add four years to the ages of Belgium’s stars to determine if it has any chance in Qatar (sorry, 32-year-old Vincent Kompany). Ignoring Belgium’s ghosts of World Cups past and future, a proper exit interview should consider just how this specific team will be remembered (if at all).

For a country to fall short in the World Cup and still be celebrated, it helps to be overlooked going into the tournament. Cameroon’s run to the quarterfinals in 1990 made it one of the most beloved teams in history, as did South Korea’s shocking semifinal berth in 2002. Belgium, meanwhile, caught no one by surprise. The Red Devils were often described as a dark horse heading into Russia, but, in reality, they were barely a light-gray horse. If anything, they fell one game short of seriously exceeding expectations.

If you’re looking for the most beloved losers in the history of the World Cup, go no further than the 1974 Dutch national team. “Clockwork Orange” lost to West Germany in the final, but it introduced the world to “Total Football,” a revolutionary brand of soccer wherein players fluidly swap positions while in possession and swarm opponents when not. The team was led by bonafide soccer genius Johan Cruyff, who spent the group stages inventing jukes. It was the combination of superlative star power and geometrically profound teamwork that made that Dutch squad legendary. If anything, losing only enhanced their mystique.

Belgium didn’t introduce the world to a new kind of soccer in Russia, but it did produce enough lightning-fast counterattacks to leave a mark on the tournament. The last-minute winner against Japan in the Round of 16 was one of the most thrilling goals in recent memory.

Belgium followed it in the next round with an equally fearsome first-half blitz against tournament favorites Brazil.

For two halves over two games, Belgium produced the kind of stuff that memories are made of. It wasn’t Total Football—and Kevin De Bruyne, while amazing, isn’t quite Cruyff—but the Red Devils had planted the seeds of something truly special. Sadly, it couldn’t stick around long enough to make them grow into anything beyond a spot in Saturday’s third-place place match, a consolation kick-around that’s the very definition of forgettable.

De Bruyne, Romelu Lukaku, Thibaut Courtois, and Eden Hazard are all 27 years old or younger, and so a glorified friendly against the loser of Croatia-England probably won’t be their last World Cup moment. They have a legitimate shot at doing something special in 2022, generational windows be damned. Hopefully that Belgium team of the future can make it count, lest we all forget about the current squad’s truncated run at glory.
