One last picture Boukary used for a time as his Facebook banner : a dogon village in Mali. It looks like a happy reunion of African djins (genies) chatting away under their pointy magic hats. There is not much we can say publicly when a close friend dies, most of you can understand. A new blog award that bears his name has been launched by his friends at Association of Malian bloggers (Doniblog on Twitter or Facebook). The story continues and it was both an honor and a great pleasure to be in the life of Boukary, deeply missed friend. #gvinsta#mali#africa#fasokan ---
I am Claire aka @briconcella. After this week honoring a Global Voices friend with his pictures from Mali, we continue our Instagram journey with Kadeo from Mexico. Au revoir.
A Zambian student in china has been killed by chinese Nationals for dating a Chinese woman.
Chrispine Mwale 25 a student studying Civil engineering in that country was beaten to death on Monday mid_Morning after he was found in a woman’s apartment.
It is said that Mr. Mwale spent a night at her girlfriends place after clubing on a Sunday night.
Four Chinese nationals approached the Apartment and dragged Mr. Mwale out of the Apartment and started beating him with iron bars and stones until his final breath.
According to an eye witness and a close friend to Mr. Mwale has informed Zambian Watch that despite him pleading, Chinese men insulted him. “We went out drinking on a Sunday night as a group. After our drinks we got on a taxi heading to our apartment. On the way Mr. Mwale’s girlfriend said she wanted to spend a night with him. That’s how they left and I was only called by the girlfriend in the morning to come and save my friend” he stated. “I rushed to the scene and only found four Chinese men beating and insulting him that their is no black man allowed to date their people. They insulted him that Africa was too poor and they would not allow black beings to be raised in their country. Despite pleading, they hit him with iron bars and stones until his final breath ” a friend said.
Finally arrived at our first camp, Camp Moremi. The view from our bed is pretty amazing!! We can’t wait to have a good sleep tonight and start our first Safari tomorrow, and hopefully receive our bags that were left in Johannesburg 😂 #TIA#heneganhoneymoon#africa#botswana#livingourbestlife
Conservation groups filed a notice of intent to sue the #Trump administration for failing to respond to a legal petition to protect #giraffes under the #EndangeredSpeciesAct. The @usfws was required to respond to the April 2017 petition within 90 days, but nearly 17 months have passed with no finding.
“As giraffe populations plummet, the @realdonaldtrump administration won’t even take the first step toward protecting these beautiful animals,” said Tanya Sanerib, international program legal director at the @centerforbiodiv in a statement. “#Africa now has fewer giraffes than elephants, but the administration refuses to throw these imperiled creatures a lifeline. That has to change, before it’s too late.”
According to the organization, giraffe populations have plummeted nearly 40 percent over the past 30 years.
Just over 97,000 giraffes remain in the wild, and the species is gravely imperiled by habitat loss, civil unrest, hunting for their meat and the international trade in bone carvings, skins and trophies.🦒💔

We have something pretty special planned next Sunday. We kick off the fourth day of #THFF2018 with a Roti Brunch featuring the Guyanese delicacies of B&M Market, the little Caribbean grocery on NE 79th Street that was featured on Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown. While we eat, we'll be watching a trio of films centered around the life and times of Guyana's Walter Rodney, the noted scholar and activist who was one of the most influential revolutionary minds to emerge from the Caribbean before his assassination by car bomb in 1980. His work would go on to have great influence in the Black Power movement and liberation struggles worldwide. We begin with a retrospective — "The Terror and the Time" (1978) and "In The Sky's Wild Noise" (1983) — of the films of the Victor Jara Collective. Named in honor of the Chilean musician and dissident Victor Jara, who was murdered by the Pinochet regime in 1973, and influenced by the politically committed New Latin American cinema of the 1960s, the collective formed with the intention of making formally daring films that explored Guyana’s own political, social and economic struggles as an emergent postcolonial nation. We close with "The Past Is Not Our Future: The Student Years of Walter Rodney"(2017), which retraces the time Rodney spent as an undergraduate at the University of the West Indies in Jamaica in the early 1960s. When he later became a controversial lecturer at UWI, the government removed him from his post, sparking riots. The film’s director, Matthew Smith, will be present for a Q&A, in addition to Rupert Roopnaraine of the Victor Jara Collective. We invite you to feast with us. Free with your #ThirdHorizon weekend pass, or with individual tickets to the film, brunch or both. It's all available at thirdhorizonfilmfestival.com. #CaribbeanFilm#Guyana#BlackPower#Socialist#Colonialism#WalterRodney#Jamaica#Africa#Diaspora#KnightArts 🇬🇾🇬🇾💥🔥🔥
IT HAPPENED TO ME, IT CAN HAPPEN TO YOU TOO
A few years ago while in the banking sector, a colleague of mine was leaving the bank and handed over two of her clients to me. Trust me, I wasn't excited because they were so demanding and preferred to work with ladies. Nevertheless, I gave my best to serve them.
One day, they had a 'stubborn' transaction. I had to get approvals from several bosses to get the transaction through. It was eventually successful.
We were expecting some money to hit their accounts from Lebanon. Guess how much came in? Two Million Dollars!!! This client was a game changer for me because I met my sales target for the entire year!!!
Watch out for that client who may be a game changer for you so you don't miss them because big things sometimes come in small packages.
