Dust From Africa Travels All The Way To The US
 
01:12
The annual dust storm that carries sand from Africa to the US has expanded its destination range. The annual dust storm that carries sand from Africa to the US is expanding its destination range. Florida has been a settling ground for it, but this year the stream is making it further into the south and southwest regions. Each year around late June due to thermal expansion of the equatorial atmosphere, an enormous quantity of dirt is suspended above the Sahara and blown across the Atlantic Ocean at an altitude of thousands of feet. Approximately 40 million tons ends up in the Amazon River Basin, and a good portion of it lands in the Everglades as well. That's a good thing, as the sand contains beneficial nutrients and helps replenish soil that's been stripped by heavy rains. Along the way the dust stream helps cool ocean temperatures and reduce the amount of hurricane-feeding energy the water gives. What the longer-term effects of it landing further inland are remain largely unknown. For the immediate future, residents of the newly affected areas are warned that they may experience a spike in allergies and have to wipe the Saharan sand off of their cars.

Black Peanuts and Bambara Groundnuts
 
04:54
http://seedkeeping.tumblr.com/ This is a story that starts in the valleys of Paraguay, travels to the West African coast, and then to North Carolina. It involves look-alike groundnuts, adopting familiar foodways far from home, and a beautiful purple-black underground bean. These peanuts were given to me by William Woys Weaver. I manage his Roughwood Seed Collection in Devon, PA. Will got them from a man in Seagrove, North Carolina, where they have been grown in African American kitchen gardens for many generations. Peanuts likely originated in in the valleys of Paraguay or in and around Bolivia. The oldest specimen (~7500 years old) was found in Peru. Peanuts traveled with Portuguese and Spanish ships, which carried enslaved Africans, and first arrived in Africa in the 16th century and in the American South in the 18th century. They were popular with West Africans on both sides of the ocean because of their similarity to Bambara Groundnuts. Enslaved African Americans would likely have been growing peanuts, if not also groundnuts, in their own gardens. George Washington Carver (1864-1943), scientist, botanist, educator, inventor, was head of the Department of Agriculture at the Tuskegee Institute. His most popular of 44 bulletins for poor farmers included 105 recipes for peanuts. He also developed over 100 products from peanuts useful for the house and farm, including dyes, paint, plastics, and gasoline. At the time, he was one of the first African Americans to address white audiences in the south at agricultural conferences and programs - and was very popular. Now, the black peanut (known as 'Cacahuete Negro' in Latin America), and bambaras of all types are somewhat hard to find. My partner Chris and I are looking forward to increasing our seed supply and sharing more of these seeds and their stories with folks who would like to reconnect with these important ancestral crops.

East Africa Vacation Travel Video Guide
 
51:54
Travel video about destination East Africa. East Africa is one of the most beautiful and diverse landscapes in the world and its magnificent wilderness and fascinating wildlife is one of the few remaining unspoiled regions on earth. Lake Naivasha is the ideal habitat for both the rare Fish Eagle and African Eagle, thus it is a perfect location from which to observe these fascinating birds. Due to its rich variety of wildlife and the spectacular beauty of its landscape Kenya is one of Africa’s most popular safari destinations. The Massai Mara National Park is located around six hours from Nairobi and is one of the country’s most extraordinary game reserves. Its name indicates the presence of one of Africa’s most colourful tribes, the Massai. The Amboseli National Park also contains many of East Africa’s most important landscapes and represents the magnificence of the African flora and fauna that grows in this relatively small, protected area. The local wildlife stays at a safe distance from the geysers of Lake Bogoria as the steaming hot springs can prove fatal for the flamingos and other water birds that live there. Nevertheless, quite often the bones of dead animals can be seen close to the geysers as some venture too close and are killed by the hot steam. At an altitude of nearly six thousand metres, Mount Kilimanjaro is the highest mountain on the African continent. For most of the time its summit is covered by a dense ring of cloud that gives the mountain an air of mystique. There are few other places on earth that offer the huge variety of nature as does the legendary east of the African continent. A magical destination and a wild natural paradise that is second to none! -------------- Watch more travel videos ► https://goo.gl/MXPgSs Join us.

VICE travels to West Africa to rummage through the messy remains of a country ravaged by 14 years of civil war. Despite the United Nation's eventual intervention, most of Liberia's young people continue to live in abject poverty, surrounded by filth, drug addiction, and teenage prostitution. The former child soldiers who were forced into war have been left to fend for themselves, the murderous warlords who once led them in cannibalistic rampages have taken up as so-called community leaders, and new militias are lying in wait for the opportunity to reclaim their country from a government they rightly mistrust.

The New Scramble for Africa | Empire
 
47:33
Decades after the European powers carved up the African continent for their own imperial needs, Africa is undergoing a new wave of resource and strategic exploitation – some are calling it the new scramble for Africa. The United States is increasing its footprint across Africa with AFRICOM, fighting terrorism and ensuring stability are the trumpeted motivations. Resource security is a more hushed objective. But it is not just about the US. During the last decade, China's trade with Africa not only caught up with America's, it has more than doubled it. The new battle for Africa does not deploy strong-arm tactics, it is now a soft power game: economic and humanitarian aid, interest-free loans, preferential trade agreements and investments in infrastructure are currency across a continent that is, for the world's established and emerging powers, seemingly up for grabs. India, Brazil and Russia are all invested in Africa's present and future, and old imperial powers like France are fixing to retain their loosening grip on the riches of former colonies. So what does all this mean for Africa and Africans? Empire travels to Kenya to examine the continent at the centre of the world as it is courted, cajoled and carved up by global powers to its East and West. - Subscribe to our channel: http://aje.io/AJSubscribe - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/AJEnglish - Find us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/aljazeera - Check our website: http://www.aljazeera.com/

The Destruction of Africa: Travel, History, Politics, Economics, Foreign Aid, and Religion (1990)
 
55:13
Today, Africa contains 54 sovereign countries, most of which have borders that were drawn during the era of European colonialism. Since colonialism, African states have frequently been hampered by instability, corruption, violence, and authoritarianism. About the book: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0006378560/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0006378560&linkCode=as2&tag=tra0c7-20&linkId=937f8dd78bbf1096a1c0f921001dfd6f The vast majority of African states are republics that operate under some form of the presidential system of rule. However, few of them have been able to sustain democratic governments on a permanent basis, and many have instead cycled through a series of coups, producing military dictatorships. Great instability was mainly the result of marginalization of ethnic groups, and graft under these leaders. For political gain, many leaders fanned ethnic conflicts, some of which had been exacerbated, or even created, by colonial rule. In many countries, the military was perceived as being the only group that could effectively maintain order, and it ruled many nations in Africa during the 1970s and early 1980s. During the period from the early 1960s to the late 1980s, Africa had more than 70 coups and 13 presidential assassinations. Border and territorial disputes were also common, with the European-imposed borders of many nations being widely contested through armed conflicts. Cold War conflicts between the United States and the Soviet Union, as well as the policies of the International Monetary Fund, also played a role in instability. When a country became independent for the first time, it was often expected to align with one of the two superpowers. Many countries in Northern Africa received Soviet military aid, while many in Central and Southern Africa were supported by the United States, France or both. The 1970s saw an escalation, as newly independent Angola and Mozambique aligned themselves with the Soviet Union, and the West and South Africa sought to contain Soviet influence by funding insurgency movements. There was a major famine in Ethiopia, when hundreds of thousands of people starved. Some claimed that Marxist/Soviet policies made the situation worse. The most devastating military conflict in modern independent Africa has been the Second Congo War; this conflict and its aftermath has killed an estimated 5.5 million people. Since 2003 there has been an ongoing conflict in Darfur which has become a humanitarian disaster. Another notable tragic event is the 1994 Rwandan Genocide in which an estimated 800 000 people were murdered. AIDS in post-colonial Africa has also been a prevalent issue. In the 21st century, however, the number of armed conflicts in Africa has steadily declined. For instance, the civil war in Angola came to an end in 2002 after nearly 30 years. This has coincided with many countries abandoning communist style command economies and opening up for market reforms. The improved stability and economic reforms have led to a great increase in foreign investment into many African nations, mainly from China, which has spurred quick economic growth in many countries, seemingly ending decades of stagnation and decline. Several African economies are among the world's fasted growing as of 2011. A significant part of this growth can also be attributed to the facilitated diffusion of information technologies and specifically the mobile telephone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Africa

U.S. ambassador Samantha Power travels to Guinea to drum up Ebola support for West Africa
 
01:18
U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power arrived in Guinea on Sunday on the first leg of a visit to the West African countries worst hit by Ebola. Power will continue on to Sierra Leone and Liberia to call attention to the need for a stronger international response that she believes is necessary to end the crisis. According to the WHO, there have now been 8,914 reported cases of Ebola, of whom 4,447 have died, almost all of them in West Africa. Sixteen cases have been treated outside Africa: seven in the U.S., three in Spain, one in France, one in the U.K., three in Germany and one in Norway. A shortage of hospital beds and limited healthcare resources in West Africa mean that Ebola patients are being sent home, where they are more likely to infect more people. Power expressed concern about the new quarantine policy in New York that requires all healthcare workers who have been in direct contact with Ebola patients in West Africa to undergo a mandatory 21-day quarantine. She said such measures may deter health workers from working in affected regions.

The government has finally bowed to pressure and temporarily suspended passenger flights to and from three West African countries as authorities tightened surveillance against the deadly Ebola virus that has ravaged populations in the region. Health cabinet secretary James Macharia who announced the suspension of flights to Sierra Leone,Liberia and Guinea said the decision was reached after extensive consultations with relevant authorities. The announcement came as the government moved to disspell fears of the presence of the Ebola virus in Kenya after five people were isolated and taken to the Kenyatta National Hospital for testing on suspicion of having contracted the disease.

VICE on HBO Season One: Fighting Chances (Episode 8)
 
29:17
Segment 1: Senegalese Laamb Wrestling The most popular sport in the West African country of Senegal isn't soccer -- it's laamb, combining Greco-Roman wrestling moves with eclectic pre-fight rituals and dances. Laamb's appeal has skyrocketed as the nation's economy has plunged (the average income for Senegalese workers is about $3 a day), and top stars are of the Michael Jordan magnitude. In a jarring contrast of color and size, VICE visits Bombardier, a laamb star who's a hero in his hometown of Mbao, to learn about the physical and spiritual sides of the sport -- and to train for our intrepid correspondent's debut in the ring. Segment 2: The World is Sinking The global sea level rose by 22 cms in the past 100 years -- and is expected to rise even faster in the years to come. Naysayers who insist that global warming is just a mirage can look no further than Venice, where the famous St. Mark's Square is underwater a third of the year, or the Maldives, the island nation which is in jeopardy of sinking into the Indian Ocean. Shane Smith travels from Europe to the Maldives to New York (site of massive flooding caused by Hurricane Sandy) to measure what we might expect if climate change and rising sea levels continue unabated.

Today there is an agreement with greenpeace to hunt four Humpback whales a year for the own consumption. Life in Roseau, the capital of Dominica, is much more hectic. It has the unofficial name “The Nature Island”. Domenica is very mountainous and has a lot of rivers and waterfalls. Chistopher Columbus did not set a food on the island, but gave her its name from “Domingo”, Sunday. Dominica was the last island colonised by the Europeans because of the resistance of the caribs. Herbs are used for healing, the very traditional medical knowledge is transmitted from generation to generation. Canoes are constructed from a single treetrunk. St Vincent and Domenica have the only Carib reservations in the whole Caribbean. It is here that the descendants of the people who gave the name to the region continued to live.They are the last reminents who long resisted the colonial ambition of the European and never allowed to be enslaved by Hannes Naderhirn, 2010, future production&promotion ------- Caribbean Moments shows a different side to the Caribbean. Everyone visualises sand, sunshine and palm trees – but hardly anyone really discovers what lies behind them. In fact an unbelievable variety of cultures, music and religions has developed as a result of the different influences – African, Indian, English, French and authentically Caribbean. This documentary series attempts to portray the people - be they the Rastas, who have a lot to say about their mission, the Amerindians in Trinidad, who still have their own Queen, or the Black Caribs – a mixture of escaped slaves and Caribs. In addition, of course, there’s a huge variety of music: steelpan, parang, calypso, soca and chutney soca shape Trinidad, whilst other islands are especially scenically beautiful, such as Dominica, which is actually a single rain forest and which seduces with its abundant vegetation. Here too are the true Caribs, who occupy themselves with traditional boat building in the same way as their ancestors did centuries ago. The films were produced in 6 parts to create a documentary series that shows what lies beneath the surface.
