Although he started modeling seriously at the age of 17, it took him three years to finally launch a serious career. In an interview with The Montreal Fashion Blog, he talked about how he started with one agency that didn’t really provide work for him, before going to another that he had career path conflict with. He finally found a modeling agency that was a good fit and launched a successful career at the age of 20. Adonis has modeled for Vivienne Westwood,…

    The Mukombe – Zimbabwe’s tippy tap Dr. Peter Morgan, winner of the 2013 Stockholm Water Prize and resident of Zimbabwe, recently shared the design of The Mukombe on the forum of the Sustainable Sanitation Alliance. The Mukombe is a hand washing device – a “tippy tap” as it is commonly known within the Water, Sanitation & Hygiene (WASH) scene – as it just requires a little tip to provide the user with just enough water to wash the hands. In water-arid areas, such a simple device can be essential to hygiene. Naturally occuring Mukombe “(The Mukombe)…

Egypt leads the list of the most polluted cities in the world, in terms of particulate matter. Moreover, according to the latest report by the WHO, every Cairo resident’s daily share of air pollution is equivalent to smoking a pack of cigarettes a day. This motivated the makers from icealex hub in Alexandria Egypt to work on solving this global problem.

Still, the story is so unique, it needs to be shared: Residents of Magomano village in Kiambu have been flocking to a homestead for a glimpse of a homemade helicopter which has been assembled by a 20 year-old farm hand.

You can simply tie the place, no need of glue, no need of nothing.” The reasoning for this unusual fix may be a bit strange (as a correctly applied patch will also work under the influence of heat), but the solution is smart and obviously works.

    There’s quite a good read up on the Tech Coctail site titled, “What (US) VC’s Are Missing in a Rising World of Smartphones“. It’s a little about smartphones, though the underlying discussion points are really about how blind the investors in the West are to the Middle East, Africa, and Asia due to their preconditioning on Silicon Valley being the only place that big tech things happen. Meanwhile, massive deals are ongoing in the Middle East and Asia that are under the radar. But Western VC’s are slow, and US VCs in particular are slow to catch on to this trend. In…

No, they only care that you are a great web designer. If you’re an American programmer working in Nairobi, does anyone care that you come from the US? Yes, for some reason that matters. You’re judged on where you come from as well as your skill set. It’s not apples-to-apples, though it should be.

Maybe it is for people who don’t live here, but why are we letting others own that? This was brought up by Mutua Matheka, a friend of mine who is one of Kenya’s great photographers, as he was describing what drove him to get into photography.

    In Agriculture: The most distinguishing aspect of OSSI, it is the idea that genetic resources – in the form of seeds- are going to be set aside for humanity to use in any way it sees fit. These genetic resources cannot be patented or otherwise legally protected, making them essentially available in perpetuity in a protected commons. If they were just in a regular commons, people could obtain them and protect them, but in this commons they mustremain free. Hence the phrase “Free the Seed!”

The video presents itself as an angry and dismissive rant about China’s superiority and America’s inferiority, badly subtitled in Chinglish. I wrote about the film when it came out, troubled by the racism associated with the Chinglish narration, and my fear it would be misread as reality, not satire, by American audiences.

    It’s hard to explain just how much Myanmar has changed. It’s at least as hard to know whether to believe in all the changes Myanmar has made. Thankfully, there are few truly despotic societies in the world, but Myanmar was one of them from 1962 until quite recently, ruled by a military junta with a horrific record on human rights. The nation’s media was heavily state controlled, with a policy of pre-publication censorship that turned domestic media into an organ for state propaganda. It was difficult or impossible for international media to report critically on the country,…

  • Build Your Own Brand For Your Startup

    Jonathan Jacobs
    17 Apr 2014 | 5:27 am
    One of the challenges as a small start-up is that from the get go you are not only competing with local businesses but also global businesses. We all start out very gung-ho, with stars in our eyes, on our journey to change the world. You feel that you are the epitome of optimism and your business will revolutionise the world. But who knows who you are and of your capabilities? Perhaps a few friends and family and some business associates at a push. One of the problems we encounter as entrepreneurs is that we get sucked into building our products or services but never focus on the environment…
  • POPI Act Effect: The Marketers Guide

    Lovemore
    15 Apr 2014 | 3:25 am
    The basis of the Bill of Rights is that all human rights should be enforced, up until the point where they begin to infringe on someone else’s rights. As a country fuelled on democracy and equal rights, the Constitution is very clear when it comes to the protection of rights. The right to privacy is one of these rights and is regarded as being of utmost importance. In many instances, to ensure that rights are upheld in a fair and unbiased manner, a balance is required. 2009 was a year of breakthrough for the protection of consumers with the promulgation of the Consumer Protection Act 68 of…
  • POPI Act Effect: The Impact Of The Law For Tech Businesses In South Africa

    Staff Reporter
    10 Apr 2014 | 3:53 am
    The Joburg Centre for Software Engineering (JCSE) at Wits University says that IT businesses need to be aware of the implications of the Protection of Personal Information (POPI) Act, signed into law on the 26th November 2013. JCSE Director, Prof Barry Dwolatzky says that POPI regulates how anyone who processes personal information must securely manage this information: “While the law is not yet in force, it is very important for businesses to ensure that they can comply with its stringent requirements.” Dwolatzky says that while Government still has to announce a commencement date, IT…

  • How To Go International With Your Valuation Business

    theleoafricanus
    11 Apr 2014 | 5:10 am
    One of the biggest reasons why there is sense in moving to other countries for valuation business is because of the cost factor. However, it may not be right to look into all the markets  that are available on the map. As a real estate valuer, you should look only for those markets where you can add value. The best way forward would be to look for countries that are often referred to as BRICS, i.e. Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. It certainly makes sense to try and start your own valuation business in any or even all these countries. However, it is important for you to have a…

    If you are a successful real estate appraiser in Australia you would certainly know what it takes to become successful in this area of real estate business. You can leverage on your experience and expertise to set up a valuation business in a foreign country. However, it is important for you to understand the rules of the game in the country where you wish to set up shop. Further you should also be careful about choosing the right country. It would be better to start business in developed economies though competition is bound to be intense. On the other hand you could also choose some…

    If you are a successful real estate and property valuer in Australia, it is quite likely that you have achieved success in this field after a lot of hard work and commitment over the past many years. Most of the real estate companies and individuals who have achieved reasonably high levels of success would have done so by growing their business consistently and persistently. Based on their expertise and experience, they would be willing to establish valuation companies outside Australia if the situation so warrants and if it felt necessary and conducive. In fact such a plan is indeed…

    If you wish to grow any business to the next higher level of success it is very important for you to become as competitive and productive as possible. Today’s customers, including those who are looking for property valuers, are always looking for service providers who are ready to provide them with good value for money. Hence the need to be competitive and increase productivity is no longer a lip service but a dire necessity. One of the ways by which you can become competitive is by cutting down costs of your property valuations. Amongst the various methods that are being thought of,…

    There are certainly a number of benefits when you decide to go overseas in your quest to give your property appraisal business a new thrust. You will be able to grab a pie of the international property valuation business which could run into trillions or dollars. While getting a foothold in established and well developed real estate markets like Europe and USA might be difficult, there are a number of opportunities waiting to be tapped in emerging economies like Russia, India, Brazil and South Africa. Apart from being able to garner a portion of the local real estate valuation business,…

    From HOLAAFRICA The Sexual Rights Centre is a human rights advocacy organisation based in Bulawayo. They work directly with sex workers and members of the  LGBTI community. They are unapologetic about their commitment to human rights for every Zimbabwean and their conviction that sexual rights are integral to affirming all human rights.

    From Foreign Policy in Focus,”It’s Not Just Uganda: Behind the Christian Right’s Onslaught in Africa” by Nathalie Baptiste In Uganda, being gay can now earn you a lifetime in prison. Last month, the East African country was again thrust into the international spotlight after President Yoweri Museveni signed into law a draconian bill that criminalized homosexuality. The high profile, on-and-off battle over the so-called “kill the gays” bill has drawn headlines for years as the most extreme example in a wave of antigay legislation on the continent. But homophobia in Africa…

    From Pambazuka News, Henry Makori calls for an end to the persecution of LGBTI people across Africa which goes beyond laws to a fierce intolerance by society at large.   President Yoweri Museveni has done it. Against widespread expectation raised by his earlier pledge, the Ugandan leader turned around this week and signed into law the contentious Anti-Homosexuality Bill passed last December by a parliament his ruling party, the National Resistance Movement (NRM), controls. The bill had been opposed locally and internationally for a record four years, since its introduction to the…

    On a recent trip to Ghana, I spent a good amount of time traversing Accra, and consequently getting stuck in traffic. Ghana is not unlike many other African and foreign cities. It boasts a growing urban population, engaged middle class, and business growth. Add to that poor urban planning and you get horrendous daily traffic. At this point Ghanaians have accepted that traffic delays are a way of life and have adjusted accordingly. Commuters try to alleviate travel headaches by getting multiple cars per household – one for each member of the family to travel independently. Having a…

Whether Facebook actually intends to pursue that goal or it’s just a ploy to keep the company’s investors happy, the idea that Africa’s future could be filled with the buzzing of drones has sparked a heated debate. 2 sides to the debate On one side are those who champion the idea.

    Aaron Ross reports on his investigation in the heart of the ongoing human trafficking of young women from Madagascar to Middle Eastern countries: For some enterprising businessmen, the collapse heralded a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. So-called placement agencies sprang up in Antananarivo and other cities across Madagascar, promising the good life in Middle Eastern “Eldorados,” where monthly salaries usually ran around $200. The agencies would pocket upward of $2,000 for each successful transaction [..] As Madagascar’s economy spiraled downward, the number of migrants grew anyway.
