County Officials Advise Those Planning to Travel to West Africa This Holiday Season
 
02:00
It's that time of the year when people travel to see old friends and loved ones. But for some, those plans might interrupted due to the outbreak of Ebola in West African countries. Members of the African Affair Advisory Group and The Coalition Against Ebola hosted the Ebola: Get Informed, Get Involved town hall meeting on Nov. 25 in Silver Spring to inform attendees about the current Ebola outbreak situation. "If you're going to return to either Liberia or Sierra Leone, Guinea or now even Mali that you need to be aware that you don't want to come in contact with somebody that is visibly sick. ... They [travelers] need to be aware when they come back they will have to be actively monitored for twenty one days," said Dr. Ulder J. Tillman, Montgomery County Health Officer. County officials said there are no restrictions for people to travel to countries impacted by the Ebola virus. Family members, however, are saying "Don't come." "Now, what we've seen though is many family members who are waiting to travel, when they call their family members in these affected countries they're saying 'Don't come. Just send the resources so that we can take care of ourselves." According to statistics shared during the event, as of November 11 more than 14,000 have been sickened with Ebola in Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra. Of those, 5,165 have died. Bernice North, a Silver Spring resident and chair of the Silver Spring Advisory board, said she has relatives working in the medical field in West Africa, and agrees that community outreach and awareness is still necessary. "So, it's important to continue the conversation to educate ourselves. Not everyone is from Guinea, Liberia, or other countries affected by Ebola," North said. On Nov. 19, residents gathered for an interfaith prayer service for Ebola relief in Silver Spring. During the meeting, a county official said the state has been monitoring all travelers who left West Africa in the past few months as part of an Ebola prevention efforts. As of November, state health officials are currently monitoring 113 travelers, but none are from Montgomery County.

01:27
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon traveled to the West African countries affected by the Ebola epidemic. Within two days he will visit Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Mali. The region still faces enormous challenges in the fight against the fever. In local hospitals people infected with a deadly virus are in the same wards with the other patients. In addition, there is a shortage of medication, clean water and transport. For example, there are only two ambulances in Kono District, which is home to 360,000 people.

KANKAN GUINEA TRAVEL - COUNTRIES OF WEST AFRICA - DANGEROUS ROADS
 
02:19
KANKAN GUINEA lies in the north of Dangerous roads - the rain forest is unforgivable. https://AfricAsiaEuro.com/kankan - Our drive took us from Accra Ghana via Eastern region of Ghana, passing along Asante region ( Ashanti ) with Asante ( Ashanti s ) capital Kumasi. From there we continued through the Asante region to Sunyani and further on to Gonokrom. There at the border of Ghana and Ivory coast, we continued to the Ivory coast s north eastern town of Agnibilekrou. Thereon we went south, passing through the fruit basket of the Ivory coast, finally reaching the major city of Yammoussoukrou. From Yammoussoukrou the road branches to Daloa and Man, close to borders of Sierra Leone and Liberia, and finally to the border of Guinea. A hard stretch of road spanning 40 km took us 8 hours to cross, with deep rainforest, heavy torrents or rain accompanying us. After a night in the rain-forest, with dangerous roads reaching from the east to west Ivory coast we entered Guinea border the next morning. A thousand miles of rain forest lay ahead of us, from the south of Guinea to the North. Dangerous roads were everywhere with armed bandits and thugs as well as notorious officials trying to rip us off. Three weeks on the road, we finally reached North Guinea, Crossing in Mali on land route, through the bush we reached Niani Mali. Many episodes and dangerous paths were encountered along the route. Ebola country is real. In the south of Guinea when passing Mount Nimba, a chimpanzee game reserve, we became aware of the notorious habit of consuming wild game. The Ebola virus is spread by indiscriminate hunting. It is easy to understand why Ebola has spread in these parts. Travel in Ebola country: Dangerous roads - the rain forest is unforgivable About our road journey to Guinea, Ivory Coast, Ghana. excerpt : ' the road still stretches a few hundred miles westward to the border with Guinea. We reach the town of Man at 14.00 PM and ask for directions to the border which according to my map should be about 30 - 35 miles. With near zero visibility we move through the tropical storm, I am now fully alert, envisaging the things to come. Something, some miracle must come our way if we should make it out before dark. Personal safety is a concern, the location near the Liberian border, a triangle of three countries, Liberia, Ivory Coast, Guinea. ..

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.

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.

St. Vincent & Dominica (travel-documentary from the season "Caribbean Moments")

The most original vulcanis islands in the caribbean sea! Our Playlist for the Caribbean: https://goo.gl/QnJtGS Subscribe to our channel for more travels: https://goo.gl/tIk2Qc Follow wocomo on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wocomo/ St. Vincent belongs to the Windward-Islands and it is located in the north of Trinidad and Tobago. The volcanic island lies north of the small island Bequia, which is strongly influenced by whaling. Because of its diverse flora and fauna, the Caribbean Island Dominica is also known as the "nature island". Diseases are cured traditionally by herbs growing here. St Vincent and the Grenadines are in the Eastern Caribbean Sea. The natives are the descendants of the caribs, which immigrated from Venezuela. St. Vincent is a volcanic Island and forms with forty other islands the island state St. Vincent and the Grenadines. 1498 Christopher Columbus arrived in St. Vincent where the Caribs lived. It remained very long uncolonised It was occupied by the British in the 18th century. Whale hunting was an important part of the local economy. 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.

Namibia Travel and Tours HD

Namibia & the Skeleton Coast Travel, Tours, Vacation HD Namibia, Skeleton Coast http://youtu.be/jDM_n18lfsw Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube Namibia is a country in southern Africa whose western border is the Atlantic Ocean. It shares land borders with Angola and Zambia to the north, Botswana to the east and South Africa to the south and east. Although it does not border with Zimbabwe, less than 200 metres of riverbed (essentially the Zambia/Botswana border) separates them at their closest points. It gained independence from South Africa on 21 March 1990, following the Namibian War of Independence. Its capital and largest city is Windhoek. Namibia is a member state of the United Nations (UN), the Southern African Development Community (SADC), the African Union (AU), and the Commonwealth of Nations. The dry lands of Namibia were inhabited since early times by San, Damara, and Namaqua, and since about the 14th century AD by immigrating Bantu who came with the Bantu expansion. Most of the territory became a German Imperial protectorate in 1884 and remained a German colony until the end of World War I. In 1920, the League of Nations mandated the country to South Africa, which imposed its laws and, from 1948, its apartheid policy. The port of Walvis Bay and the offshore Penguin Islands had been annexed by the Cape Colony under the British crown by 1878 and had become an integral part of the new Union of South Africa at its creation in 1910. Uprisings and demands by African leaders led the UN to assume direct responsibility over the territory. It recognised the South West Africa People's Organisation (SWAPO) as the official representative of the Namibian people in 1973. Namibia, however, remained under South African administration during this time as South-West Africa. Following internal violence, South Africa installed an interim administration in Namibia in 1985. Namibia obtained full independence from South Africa in 1990, with the exception of Walvis Bay and the Penguin Islands, which remained under South African control until 1994. Namibia has a population of 2.1 million people and a stable multi-party parliamentary democracy. Agriculture, herding, tourism and the mining industry -- including mining for gem diamonds, uranium, gold, silver, and base metals -- form the backbone of Namibia's economy. Given the presence of the arid Namib Desert, it is one of the least densely populated countries in the world. Namibia enjoys high political, economic and social stability. History of Namibia The name of the country is derived from the Namib Desert, considered to be the oldest desert in the world.[5] Before its independence in 1990, the area was known first as German South-West Africa (Deutsch-Südwestafrika), then as South-West Africa, reflecting the colonial occupation by the Germans and the South Africans (technically on behalf of the British crown reflecting South Africa's dominion status within the British Empire). Pre-colonial period The dry lands of Namibia were inhabited since early times by San, Damara, Nama, and since about the 14th century AD, by immigrating Bantu who came with the Bantu expansion from central Africa. From the late 18th century onwards, Orlam clans from the Cape Colony crossed the Orange River and moved into the area that today is southern Namibia.[6] Their encounters with the nomadic Nama tribes were largely peaceful. The missionaries accompanying the Orlams were well received by them,[7] the right to use waterholes and grazing was granted against an annual payment.[8] On their way further northwards, however, the Orlams encountered clans of the Herero tribe at Windhoek, Gobabis, and Okahandja which were less accommodating. The Nama-Herero War broke out in 1880, with hostilities ebbing only when Imperial Germany deployed troops to the contested places and cemented the status quo between Nama, Orlams, and Herero. The first Europeans to disembark and explore the region were the Portuguese navigators Diogo Cão in 1485 and Bartolomeu Dias in 1486; still the region was not claimed by the Portuguese crown. However, like most of Sub-Saharan Africa, Namibia was not extensively explored by Europeans until the 19th century, when traders and settlers arrived, principally from Germany and Sweden. In the late 19th century Dorsland trekkers crossed the area on their way from the Transvaal to Angola. Some of them settled in Namibia instead of continuing their journey, even more returned to South-West African territory after the Portuguese tried to convert them to Catholicism and forbade their language at schools. ================= Travel Namibia, Travel Skeleton Coast, Africa's Last Wilderness, Tours Namibia, Tours Skeleton Coas, Vacation Namibia, Vacation Skeleton Coas, Tourism Namibia, Tourism Skeleton Coas, Overseas Adventure Travel, Windhoek, Sossusvlei Dunes, Swakopmund, Damaraland, Etosha National Park

The orchestra performs widely at concerts in Zanzibar town, but also frequently travels overland with a fold-up stage and an electricity generator to bring its music to the rural areas as well. The club has released hundreds of songs on the local market and since 1988 they have had six releases on the international market. The orchestra has had highly successful tours all over Europe in 1996, 1998, 2000, 2002, 2004, 2005 and 2007; in September 2006 they toured the US to high acclaim, in July 2007 the club performed in Japan. A North American tour is planned for the 2008-2009 season. Besides taarab, many club members are also active in kidumbak groups, smaller ensembles that play a more down-home dance-focused music. Both types of music are played on stage, contrasting the serene sound of orchestral taarab to the festive and sexually charged dance that is kidumbak. On its tours the club regularly features invited guest singers.

Senegalese Laamb Wrestling & The World is Sinking | VICE on HBO
 
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.

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 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/

My Travels through Kenya, Africa!
 
24:28
I traveled to Kenya, Africa in January, 2013 for two weeks with NoChild, an organization in Michigan that has set up child sponsorships globally at orphanages in Kenya & India. We traveled with a team of 12-15 volunteers to three orphanages in Kodich, Kauriong, & Chemolingot, all in the arid west Pokot region of Kenya. Our mission included updating the children's informational and personal profiles, including their photos- which I assisted with Brian Craig. This video captures everything I saw for the first time as we traveled for hours through the different terrain and sights. Later that year, I ran the Detroit Marathon (yes, 26.2 miles!) in October with Kensington Church to raise funds for this area of Pokot Kenya!! For two years running, Hope Water Project has raised over ONE MILLION DOLLARS each year and has built 200+ ft deep wells to access clean water for the Pokot Kenyans! Exactly ten years prior to this trip, I was scheduled to go to southern Africa while I was in college, and the trip fell through for me. It was an amazing experience to see how God provided this experience for me a decade later!
