  • Agricultural Problems Facing The African Nations - 620 words
    Agricultural Problems Facing The African Nations Agricultural Problems facing the African Nations Africa is a nation hit by many agricultural problems. As a majority, Africa is a desert type climate. Rainfall is heavy and quick, leaving soil deeply engraved by the pounding of the rain. It falls for such a short period of time, not allowing the ground to soak up the moisture before it is evaporated into the air because of the heat. Droughts attack the nations often never providing enough food to sustain the rising population of the nations. African families are growing bigger and bigger by the year. One in every seven children is going to die before school age. That means that the nation is u ...

  • Aids In Africa - 1,109 words
    Aids In Africa As recently as 1990, there were some regions of the world that had remained relatively unscathed by AIDS. Today, however, there is not a single country around the world which has wholly escaped the AIDS epidemic. As the epidemic has matured, some of the developed nations which were hard hit by the epidemic in the 1980s such as the United States have reported a slowing in the rate of new infections and a stabilization among existing cases with lower mortality rates and an extension of post-diagnosis lifespan. However, despite the changing face of the global AIDS pandemic, one factor remains unchanged: no region of the world bears a higher AIDS-related burden than sub-Saharan Af ...

Biological and behavioral factors among HIV+ men may also impact the fertility rates. In general, researchers have noted that biological factors, including reduced sperm count and reduced frequency of sexual activity related to physical illness, have been more important than behavioral factors (condom use, etc.) when examining males' contributions to the declining fertility rates (Zaba & Gregson, 1998).

  • Decolonization: Abandonment - 1,218 words
    De-Colonization: Abandonment De-colonization began with the British colonists in the United States who declared independence in 1776. Most of Latin America gained independence a few decades later. De-colonization continued through the mid-1970s, mostly in Asia and Africa, until almost no European colonies remained. Most of the newly independent states have faced tremendous challenges and difficulties in the post-colonial era. The stability and harmony of de-colonized countries are not guaranteed once the countries are left to the hands of indigenous people. Colonies were flourishing under the colonial administrative government which creates bureaucratic, legislative and educative filters tha ...

  • Foreign Aid - 1,654 words
    Foreign Aid Since the 90's, the Western governments have increased their interest in funding civil society in Africa to promote democratization. This discussion paper examines how a range of foreign donors, including Western Governments, multilateral agencies and Non- Governmental Organizations (NGO's) have developed "civil society" in Ghana, South Africa and Uganda. Other important assistance comes from Civil Society Organizations (CSO's) to assist in basic provisions for food health and shelters. The three countries discussed in this essay are viewed as models by the Western World since they are amongst the African nations that receive the most foreign aid. For example, in 1995 South Afric ...

  • Foreign Trade In 90s - 1,055 words
    Foreign Trade In 90s The advances of the technological revolution have molded the evolution of the United States foreign trade in the 1990s and into the new millennium. Globalization has become the credo for the Clinton administration, and the booming American economy has done nothing but strongly bolster this approach. Globalizations foothold in American policy really began in the much-debated North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which was finally passed in 1994. NAFTA specifically said one of its goals was to "contribute to the harmonious development and expansion of world trade and provide a catalyst to broader international cooperation". However at the time that was hardly the ca ...

  • Livestock Disease And African Food Security - 1,299 words
    Livestock Disease And African Food Security Livestock Disease and African Food Security A serious problem in Africa today is the emergence of rampant, deadly strains of disease that are affecting livestock and ravaging populations of pigs and cattle in many African nations, putting food security at risk in many populations of various nations. With already major food scarcity issues among many emerging African nations, disease will only further pressure an already dire situation for food security in Africa. Livestock play important roles in farming systems, which provide primarily food and income, which is necessary for food security. Nearly 12 percent of the world populations rely solely on ...

  • Martin And Malcolm: Two Sides Of The Same Coin - 1,063 words
    Martin And Malcolm: Two Sides Of The Same Coin Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X were two of the most important and influential figures of the Civil Rights Movement during the sixties. Both Martin and Malcolm represented the two different sides of the same coin in the black movement to fight for freedom. Though the their struggle for black freedom was shared, their approach tactics were not. Both were highly intelligent, accomplished men in their own right, both were ministers of different faiths yet they both believed in the same God. Martin and Malcolm were both well matched but differently styled orators. Martin's speeches were insistent to white America and at the same time soothing t ...

    ... a single race of 200 yards, approximately the length of the stadium"(Gorman 84) The race was called the "Stade" from which our word "stadium" was derived. The first recorded victor in 776 B.C. was "Coroebus of Elis, a cook"(Gorman 84). The athletes of Elis maintained an unbroken string of victories until the 14th Olympiad at which time a second race of two lengths of the stadium was added. In the 15th Olympiad, an endurance event was added in which the athletes "went 12 times around the stadium, about 4 1/2 kilometers"(Gorman 85). The athletes competed in groups of four, which were determined by "drawing lots with the winners meeting the other winners until a final race was run"(Gorman 8 ...

  • Organized Crime In Africa - 509 words
    Organized Crime In Africa Organized crime is a problem that has spread all throughout the international community. In the past, national and regional crime organizations were small, isolated and worked independent of other crime organizations. However in the past few decades free trade and high speed telecommunications has made it easier for such groups to operate, therefore resulting in "global Mafiosi" that seem to be working together around the globe. This new development makes it hard for governments and the United Nations to combat international organized crime. Lesotho, a nation of the African block is particularly concerned with the escalating problem of illicit traffic of drugs and f ...

His hands shook, and we mistrusted him... For how many moons will the stranger be among us? (Vera 43) The stranger still lives among the people of Zimbabwe, though the colonial political authority has left. Yet I wonder if the town elder speaking in the above passage from Yvonne Vera's Nehanda would recognize current Zimbabwean authorities as strangers or countrymen. Could he relate to today's government officials and understand the languages which they speak? Would he feel at home in an African country wit ...

  • Slavery Reparations Are Wrong - 1,722 words
    Slavery Reparations Are Wrong Ladies and gentlemen; I don't believe that anyone in this chamber would move to disagree with the idea that slavery was an atrocity, committed from the depths of the darkest parts of the human sole. Africans were seized from their native land, and sold into lives of servitude into a foreign land. Indeed, it was a tragedy on such a scale that cannot be measured nor quantified. And it is this very notion of unquantifiable tragedy which speaks to the matter of reparations for slavery. To be quite blunt, reparations, even if they may be deserved, are not feasible under any system or economic tangent - indeed such an undertaking would only not remedy the situation, b ...

  • The Art Of Influence - 1,038 words
    The Art Of Influence THE ART OF INFLUENCE; Africa And Its' Influence On Western Art Between The Mid-Nineteenth Century and The First World War During the mid 19th century up until the Great War of 1914, European countries began to heavily colonize and come into contact with African nations. This was called "new imperialism". During this contact, European culture was influenced by Africa. The influence of the African people can be seen in the European society of the time. In the 19th and 20th centuries, modern artists embraced African art for its lack of pretension or formal qualities. In the latter part of the 19th century, the "scramble for Africa," consolidated at the Berlin Conference, di ...

  • The Concept Of Girlhood In The Modern World - 1,747 words
    The Concept Of Girlhood In The Modern World THE GIRL-CHILD IN THE GLOBAL ECONOMY The girl-child is one of, if not the most, exploitable segments of the world's population. Children in general because of their dependence upon adults and their natural naivet due to lack of life experience. In the context of our new global economy, child labor issues are becoming very prevalent and their discussion very necessary. The tragedy of the child labor issues is that the multinational corporations created within the global economy are not able to see the damage they cause in other countries.

  • World Influence On The Modernization Of Africa - 1,868 words
    World Influence on the Modernization of Africa World Influence on the Modernization of Africa Developing Political Systems The way countries, nations or states act and base their policies on many times reflect what their past was like. This is very true in the case of Africa. The only problem is that Africa is said to have no history. This just means that Africas many cultures did not affect the way imperialists and other influences acted towards the huge continent. Everything was based on their interests and consequently this meant that the way of dealing with Africa in every way was based on Western traditionalists. To this we must answer the question how has the Western World affected Afr ...
