THE LONG HISTORY OF MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS KILLING PEOPLE TOGETHER.

THE LONG HISTORY OF MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS KILLING PEOPLE TOGETHER. ‘Muslims and Christians shared common cultures, spoke common languages, and did not necessarily see one another as strange or other. The Battle of Zenta in 1697, in which the turks were defeated by Austria. In 1683, a vast Ottoman army camped outside the gates of Vienna. For centuries thereafter, the siege and final decisive battle that took place would be cast as a defining moment in a clash of civilizations — that time the forces of Islam were halted at the ramparts of Christendom. Yet look just a little bit harder, and that tidy narrative falls apart. The Ottoman assault had

‘GOALKEEPER NO.1’: REMEMBERING GHANA’S ROBERT MENSAH.

‘GOALKEEPER NO.1’: REMEMBERING GHANA’S ROBERT MENSAH. Goalkeepers are generally considered very rare breed wherever they find themselves in the world; yes, rare, but in a manner only they can be. The stereotypical goalkeeper exhibits a wackiness and arrogance that strike you in equal measure; a combination that occasionally throws you off-balance, leaving you bewildered and disbelieving of whichever piece of action one just witnessed. And all the great goalkeepers’ one can think of—the likes of Lev Yashin, Fabian Barthez, Bruce Grobbelaar, Rene ´El Loco´ Higuita, Jens Lehmann, Ricardo Zamora, Jose Chilavert, Jorge Campos, and Hugo Gatti—have had it in their own peculiar ways. As far as eccentric goalkeepers come, though,

STOP EATING EGG, MEAT, SUGAR TO PREVENT FIBROID – NUTRITIONIST TELLS WOMEN.

STOP EATING EGG, MEAT, SUGAR TO PREVENT FIBROID – NUTRITIONIST TELLS WOMEN. Clinical Nutritionist Dr. Benjamin Nuako is strongly kicking against women consuming high-fat dairy and saturated products such as milk, meat and egg to avoiding growing fibroid. Speaking on Nkwa Hia, a health talk show on Adom TV on Monday with host Afia Amankwaah Tamakloe, the nutritionist said foods high in saturated fats can raise the estrogen level in women which allows fibroids to grow larger. He said those foods are also hard on the liver, making it difficult for the body to break down and rid itself of the excess hormones. “There is a hormone called ‘Insulin-Like Growth

MEET THE BOLD PRESIDENTS LEADING THE DREAM FOR AN AFRICAN RENAISSANCE.

MEET THE BOLD PRESIDENTS LEADING THE DREAM FOR AN AFRICAN RENAISSANCE. For so long, Africa has remained at the mercy of foreign donors and the so-called “development partners” for survival – a situation that has reduced many African countries to vagabonds. Perennial hunger, poor infrastructure and lack of basic amenities have been the true nature of the African continent since independence. But with the continued enlightenment of the African people, the narrative is slowly changing and more people are now yearning for a more developed, self-sufficient Africa. This desire to overcome the existing challenges has given birth to a new narrative of the African renaissance. Many African leaders have accepted

HISTORY OF JAMES-TOWN BRITISH ACCRA.

HISTORY OF JAMES-TOWN BRITISH ACCRA. **This piece was originally posted on this blog under the title ‘the definitive story of JamesTown British Accra.  The pictures accompanying the original posting have been changed in this one*** ————————————————————————————- We must begin at the beginning. Carl Reindorf in his history of the Gold Coast and Asante popularized the idea that the Ga originated from ancient Egypt or possibly ancient Israel. Modern historians and archeologists such as Paul Ozame, Irene Odotei, James Anguandah, Adu Boahen and John Parker reject this thesis. Irene Odotei believes that the Ga originated from the lower banks of the Volta River. They travelled in family or clan groups and

MEET THE BLACK MEN THE WORLD CANNOT AFFORD TO FORGET IN A HURRY.

MEET THE BLACK MEN THE WORLD CANNOT AFFORD TO FORGET IN A HURRY. In the course of history, the world has witnessed the prowess of a number of black men. These are the world’s unforgettable black men: 1. Martin Luther King: Rev. King was the son of a church minister who in his later life fought racism, employing civil disobedience, a technique popularized by Mahatma Gandhi, another world-renowned revolutionary in the 20th century.

DR. THOMAS MENSAH: AN INNOVATOR OF FIBER OPTICS TECHNOLOGIES

DR. THOMAS MENSAH: AN INNOVATOR OF FIBER OPTICS TECHNOLOGIES. The use of light pulses to transmit data through cables from one place to another is known as fiber optic communication. Compared to many other forms of data transmission, fiber optics has exceptionally low data loss, a lack of power issues when traveling long distances and carries a much higher amount of data. Telecommunications and the Internet have been greatly influenced by fiber optics technologies which have allowed those industries to mature with more robust products and services. With the arrival of February comes the return of our celebration of Black History Month, where we profile innovations by African-American inventors that have shaped our world

GHANA COUNTRY PROFILE

GHANA COUNTRY PROFILE. Ghana is considered one of the more stable countries in West Africa since its transition to multi-party democracy in 1992. Formerly known as the Gold Coast, Ghana gained independence from Britain in 1957, becoming the first sub-Saharan nation to break free from colonial rule. Gold, cocoa and more recently oil form the cornerstone of Ghana’s economy and helped fuel an economic boom. Until recently Ghana was hailed as a model for African growth but since 2013, its economy has endured a growing public deficit, high inflation, and a weakening currency, resulting in its seeking an IMF bailout.

CLAIM THAT NKRUMAH IS SOLE FOUNDER OF GHANA UNACCEPTABLE – DR AIDOO

CLAIM THAT NKRUMAH IS SOLE FOUNDER OF GHANA UNACCEPTABLE – DR AIDOO. Senior research fellow at the Institute of African Studies, Dr Kojo Opoku Aiddo, says Ghana’s past achievements and ongoing development cannot be attributed to any singular person or group. He notes that one of the best ways to resolve the ongoing debate about Dr Kwame Nkrumah’s status as the founder of Ghana is to acknowledge that the country’s liberation efforts from the pre-colonial era to independence resulted from a myriad of collaborative efforts. “The project to liberate Ghana from colonial rule started and was contributed to by many, many people; so many years even before Nkrumah arrived in

UK SUSPENDS AID FOR MYANMAR MILITARY

UK SUSPENDS AID FOR MYANMAR MILITARY. Violence in the Rakhine state has seen more than 400,000 Rohingya Muslims flee to neighbouring Bangladesh. The Ministry of Defence said it had suspended £300,000 of funding until the current situation was resolved. The UN’s human rights chief has said the violence “seems [like] a textbook example of ethnic cleansing”. The £300,000-a-year was used to fund educational courses for the country’s military. But an MoD spokesperson said: “In the light of the ongoing violence… and our deep concern about the human rights abuses that are taking place, we have decided to suspend the educational courses provided to the Burmese military until there is an
