Mystery deaths in Nigeria provoke fear of unrecorded coronavirus surge


(Financial Times) 12 May 2020

Africa’s most populous country has confirmed only 4,400 cases but tested few of its 200m people
Scores of mysterious deaths in northern Nigeria have sparked speculation that coronavirus may be moving untracked through Africa’s most populous nation, which has reported few confirmed cases but conducted fewer tests than other countries with smaller populations.

Ten weeks after Nigeria reported sub-Saharan Africa’s first coronavirus cases, the country has recorded 4,400 infections out of a population of more than 200m. That is compared with about 4,300 cases in Ghana, where the population is only 30m, 10,000 cases in South Africa and 9,400 cases in Egypt.

Nigerian officials concede that the low count is due in part to limited testing. Nigeria has tested just 27,000 samples, compared with about 356,000 tests in South Africa, which has a population less than a third of the size. ...

Quote of note:

"Libya was always looked at (by Moscow) as the perfect passageway to Africa. Russia is interested in any mechanism that allows it to undermine NATO and promote disunity within European bloc… Libya is perfect." -- Jalel Harchaoui, a Libya expert at The Netherlands Institute of International Relations

Happy Kwanzaa



The wikipedia page (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kwanzaa) is more informative and less dated. ;)

Cler Achel | Tinariwen | Playing For Change | Live Outside


Not easy to find these days, as this original take of Groove in G has been removed from top indexing and folded into later versions with all the other featured musicians from around the globe.

This is the original video of Tanariwen which caught my attention years ago, in an early "Playing for Change" spotlight feature. And it's still my favorite, with the complete band, including vocals, and sights from nearby. Real. "From Outside". But all within Mali.

The Most Important COP Briefing the World Never Heard [Non-Profit Industrial Complex] - Invidious

A 2ºC rise in global temperature, which the non-profit industrial complex campaigned upon, would mean a 3.5ºC rise for Africa. This temperature is certain death for the African peoples – certain death for billions. In addition, a 2ºC global temperature rise guarantees a minimum 4ºC+ global temperature for future generations.

(this briefing was 10 years ago)
One must note the disturbing irony. After the press conference was finished, a standing ovation erupted. The room shook with an audience both inspired and enraptured. Depending on one’s depth of understanding of foundations, corporate power structures and the non-profit industrial complex, one may or may not be surprised at what happened afterwards, which was, quite simply, nothing. The white ivory towers, ever so acquiescent to their hegemonic rulers, wrote off the African people by continuing their “demand” for “a fair, ambitious, binding agreement.” In other words: “Sorry about your bad luck, Africa. Enjoy your future of hell on Earth … and fuck you.”

The non-profit industrial complex, with CAN and TckTckTck at the forefront, stuck to their 2ºC and other suicidal (non)targets. The climate justice groups dared on occasion to demand that temperatures not exceed 1.5ºC, while any discussion demanding that 1ºC be supported and campaigned upon sent this faction, too, running scared like frightened field mice. Climate justice amounted to nothing more than a branded trademark. Silence and compliance reigned as the champagne circuit discussed career options over cocktails.

Photo by @davidyarrow I was very sad to learn, on my return to Lewa a few weeks ago, that WaiWai, pictured above, has broken her horn. Thankfully, she is safe and well, and it is almost definitely from natural causes. Her horn was perhaps the longest in the world and it is testament to the great conservation work donebeing in this part of Kenya that she has lived a normal and undisturbed life. On reflection, it is a happy story.⁣⁣ When I was in Lewa in 2017, the ranger team – whom I have known for a few years – helped locate the iconic female black rhino Waiwai. It took time and the drive to her was a little gruelling but ultimately it was an encounter that I will always remember – what a spectacular prehistoric looking animal – quite remarkable.⁣⁣

All sorts of strange coincidences today walking/shopping in my own neighborhood...
The first was running into my Congressman (and chair of the Judiciary Committee in the House). Much respect for him!
Secondly, approaching the register with organic veggies and NY bagels in hand, this song played overhead. Been a long time.
