    The Business and Recycling of Christmas trees in Africa

    in Environment

     
    Christmas (Christian Mass) is an increasingly popular annual religious tradition of the nativity, which is the commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ and his legacy of joy of enlightenment, peace on earth, freedom, civility, and unity of all mankind. This custom is celebrated with exchange of gifts, sharing of stories and musical cantata, as well as displays and decorations such asChristmas trees.
    Christmas has become the largest annual economic stimulus for many nations around the world. Sales increase dramatically in almost all retail areas and shops introduce new products as people purchase gifts, decorations, and supplies. There are approximately 400 million Christians in Africa who celebrate the Christmas tradition. Although plastic trees and inflatable Santa Claus were popular in Africa, new wealth effect, new level of sophistication, explosion of Christian growth and the influx of foreigners are creating a boom in Christmas tree sales.
    Few years ago, Burundi's government banned cutting down of trees to be used for Christmas festivities. The country claimed it had lost enough of its forest cover and could not afford any more trees to be cut down. Join us as we explore the pros and cons in the business and recycling of Christmas trees in Africa.

    MONDAY NIGHT GOSPEL MAY 4 2015 The POWER OF THE GOSPEL SONG

    in Radio

    Ben Harper – Power Of The Gospel


    It will make a weak man mighty
    It will make a mighty man fall
    It will fill your heart and hands
    Or leave you with nothing at all
    It's the eyes for the blind
    And legs for the lame
    It is love for hate
    And pride for shame


    That's the power of the gospel
    That's the power of the gospel
    That's the power of the mighty power
    That's the power of the gospel


    Gospel on the water
    Gospel on the land
    The gospel in every woman
    The gospel in every man
    Gospel in the garden
    Gospel in the trees
    The gospel that's inside of you
    The gospel inside of me


    That's the power of the gospel
    That's the power of the gospel
    That's the power of the mighty power
    That's the power of the gospel


    In the hour of richness
    In the hour of need
    For all of creation
    Comes from the gospel seed
    Now you may leave tomorrow
    And you may leave today
    But you've got to have the gospel
    When you start out on your way


    That's the power of the gospel
    That's the power of the gospel
    That's the power of the mighty power
    That's the power of the gospel

    WORLD WIDE AFRICA THE VOICE OF THE PAN AFRICAN MOVEMENT

    in Politics

     


     When I see effigies of black people hanging from trees in Baltimore and this lets me and every intelligent human being understand the magnitude of the racist attitudes in the world today. When president Obama first came into office an effigy of him was hung at a Shell Gas station. One question does he not realize that when he leaves office he is going to face this bullshit that is happening her in the world agains Black African People? We were taught by Malcolm El Haji Malik Shabazz that our freedom is all we have and that we must achieve it by any means necessary"It’s just like when you’ve got some coffee that’s too black, which means it’s too strong. What you do? You integrate it with cream; you make it weak. If you pour too much cream in, you won’t even know you ever had coffee. It used to be hot, it becomes cool. It used to be strong, it becomes weak. It used to wake you up, now it’ll put you to sleep. This is what they did with the march on Washington. They joined it. They didn’t integrate it; they infiltrated it. They joined it, became a part of it, took it over. And as they took it over, it lost its militancy. They ceased to be angry. They ceased to be hot. They ceased to be uncompromising. Why, it even ceased to be a march. It became a picnic, a circus. Nothing but a circus, with clowns and all. You had one right here in Detroit — I saw it on television — with clowns leading it, white clowns and black clowns. I know you don’t like what I’m saying, but I’m going to tell you anyway. ’Cause I can prove what I’m saying. If you think I’m telling you wrong, you bring me Martin Luther King and A. Philip Randolph and James Farmer and those other three, and see if they’ll deny it over a microphone." What are you going to do about this crisis in America Mr. President? Put it in your list that rhymes with Bucket, Sir
