    FREEDOM FRIDAY- TOWN HALL MEETING - NELSON MANDELA

    in Current Events

    Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela (Xhosa pronunciation: [xo'li??a?a man'de?la]; 18 July 1918 – 5 December 2013) was a South African anti-apartheid revolutionary, politician and philanthropist who served as President of South Africa from 1994 to 1999. He was the first black South African to hold the office, and the first elected in a fully representative election. His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid through tackling institutionalised racism, poverty and inequality, and fostering racial reconciliation. Politically an African nationalist and democratic socialist, he served as President of the African National Congress (ANC) from 1991 to 1997. Internationally, Mandela was Secretary General of the Non-Aligned Movement from 1998 to 1999.

    CULTURE

    in Culture

    My point of view about cultures around the world and our perception about the other cultures.
    The word culture has many different meanings. For some it refers to an appreciation of good literature, music, art, and food. For a biologist, it is likely to be a colony of bacteria or other microorganisms growing in a nutrient medium in a laboratory Petri dish. However, for anthropologists and other behavioral scientists, culture is the full range of learned human behavior patterns.

    The Chinese were the first people to ever use toilet paper.

    Eskimos do not gamble.

    In Africa the women of the Xhosa tribe are allowed to smoke pipes when they come of age.

    Indian Totem poles represent family trees the same way as English Heraldic crests do.

    Anyone in England who reaches the age of 105 will receive a telegram from the Queen or King on every birthday.

    Tibetans rub themselves down with rancid yak fat to keep themselves warm.

    In Taiwan a third of all funeral processions feature a stripper.

    In the USA Christmas did not become a national holiday until 1890.

    A census in 1920 revealed that fewer than one Eskimo in 46 has ever seen an igloo.

    The average US marriage lasts about 9.4 years.

    NELSON MADIBA MANDELA IS 92 YEARS OLD TODAY.

    in Social Networking

    When he appeared at the Fifa World Cup closing ceremony on Sunday, he was met by a rapturous reception. None of the other heads of states inspired that much joy at the monumental event.

    In his graying, shortly cropped hair and a warm black coat hiding his signature batik shirts, Nelson Mandela needed no introduction.
    His legacy stays with you much longer than his outfits do anyway.
    While the world marked the beginning of this year’s global soccer tournament on June 11, Mandela was reflecting on something different — the day he along with seven of his comrades were convicted of sabotage at the infamous Rivonia Trial of 1964.

    While in prison, his popularity is said to have grown much more than any other African leader and rather than habour hate for the oppressive regime, he sought reconciliation.

    It is easy to see why this 92-year-old remains the most revered African statesman. Through his secret weapons of “goodness and forgiveness”, he continues to win the hearts of many across the boarders.
    They call it The Nelson Mandela Day — a day the UN General Assembly set aside to mark his contribution to world freedom.
    Before taking the oath of office in 1994, Mandela had had 75 years of huddles to jump over.

    The first was a change of names as a young boy in school. Born Rolihlahla Mandela, he got his English name ‘Nelson’ from a teacher who didn’t care much for his Xhosa names. He would later live up his middle name, Rolihlahla, which colloquially means, “troublemaker”.
