Strategy Hugo Chávez in Africa

leave a comment »

Good Morning Friends,

Venezuela is close to Africa, the government of Venezuela is launching a major diplomatic offensive to strengthen relations with the African continent.

With the two-day official visit that President Hugo Chávez is making the African nation South Africa reported that the two countries signed agreements in various sectors of oil and gas.

Venezuela is the third Latin American country with a greater presence in Africa, in its ten years of government; Chavez has been cultivating relations with the continent, part of foreign policy “multirateral” which deals with Venezuelan counter the dominant global presence of the EE.UU.

 The largest relative political stability on the African continent and economic growth increase the attractiveness of these countries as producers of raw materials and as recipients of foreign investment.

That is why countries like Brazil, India, China and U.S. are trying to position themselves in a continent with enormous potential for economic development.

 

“Africa has always been of interest Venezuelan

 

Best regards,

Mireya

The war future of water

with one comment

Good Morning friends,

The importance of the treasure called “Water”.

While in many places clean water and fresh is normal in other is a scarce resource due to lack of water or source pollution.

 

About 1100 million people that is 18% for some of the world population have no access to safe sources of drinking water and more than 2400 million people lack adequate sanitation.

 

In the roofs of any city India can see large deposits of black plastic that serves to store water. Exposed to sun and pollution these deposits soon lose their hermetic capacity and become the perfect “crop diseases”, in rural areas is even worse. There are places where there is water only 40 minutes a day.

 

In a future war will undertaken to achieve and monitor freshwater, like now fight for oil.

 

Best regards,

 

Mireya

Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Prixe winner.

leave a comment »

Good Morning  friends,

How are you today?

This morning I was reading   this magazine “entrepreneurs “ with my coffee specifically  the interview with Muhammad Yunus founder  of Grameen Bank and Nobel Prixe winner. Entrepreneur nationality of Bangladesh, creator of 30 companies.

The most successful innovations is the Grameen Bank founded 20 years ago- it is now the largest rural bank in Bangladesh and a model worldwide for its innovative micro-credit program.

The bank lends money to the poorest people of Bangladesh, 94% percent of the shares of whom are women.

In my opinion the businessman should make money to help others. When you want to succeed you must be able to persuade others of the benefits of your product.

I was thinking of all those entrepreneurs, encourage them embark from the field of social affairs.

Best regards,

Mireya

Amadou Diao returned Beijing Olympics

leave a comment »

Good Morning friends,

How are you today? In this cloudy morning I want to inform you about the history Amadou Diao in Beijing Olympics 2008.

What happened with the history of the banner that Amadou Diao deployed at the opening of Beijing 2008 Olympics?

All he can say is that he has been heard by the leaders of Senegal under the coordination meetings. Everyone took action, enjoying or condemning the chest.

He thought it was a message the need to bring “Friendship first, competition then” and that it fell within the Olympic movement. So he didn’t think it could interfere with the Senegalese National Olympic Committee, nor indeed the CIO.

He still remembered for a long time Beijing 2008. As well as the first Senegalese athletes entered in contention in these competitions.

Amadeu Diao , the national technical director of athletics Senegal, returned rather than planned in Beijing. His only crime was to have brandished a banner that could read:

“Friendship first , competition second”. And   this day of the opening of the Olympics.  An offence in the eyes of members of the International Olympic Committee (CIO) which won him his expulsion from Beijing.

Nice day ,

Natural medicine

with 2 comments

Good Morning friends,

How are you today? what do you think about natural medicine? Have you used it?

Research conducted has shown that alternative medicines are becoming increasingly popular.

Alternative medicine consists of the therapeutic and preventative health care practices that do not involve drugs,but rather herbal and mental variations of medical treatment.

Some herbals comes for example from South America which are used as natural plan substances to treat and prevent illness. The practice has existed since prehistoric times.

Traditional African medicine is a holistic discipline involving extensive use of indigenous herbalist combined with aspects of African spirituality. One tradition medicinal cure that has developed a wide following outside the continent is pygeum- which has been sold in Europe since the 1970s.

Football in Africa

with one comment

Good Morning friends,

Today we will speaking about the football in Africa, do you think that there is a lots passion for this sport?

Football in Africa is followed passionately from Morocco on down to South Africa. You will know when an important football match is being played in Africa because the country you are visiting will literally come to a standstill. Everywhere you to in Africa you’ll see young boys kicking around a football.

Sometimes the ball will be made of plastic bags with string wrapped around it,sometimes it will be made of crumpled up paper but the most important is “playing and playing – enjoying”.

Occasionally comes the famous players as Samuel Eto’s is a Cameroonian football striker who currently plays of Spanish club FC Barcelona. Eto’o to open football Academies, he has built the Foundation Samuel’s Eto in the city of Krity (Cameroon). The football academy is the biggest project of the Foundation, designed to unearth a new generation of Cameroon players.

” Maybe the most important is not have the best sportives areas or the best ball as have the best illusion or the best spirit of  overcoming”

Nice day,

Good Morning friends,

Today is the last day of the “working -week” ,what will you do this weekend?

I propose you to see the film Black Gold” , I am sure that you will always remember it when you trink one coffee cup again.The film focus on the coffee growers of the Oromia Region of southern and western Ethiopia,the birthplace of coffee.

“For a theree dollars cup of coffee a farmer earns theree cents” the quote refers to the exploits of Ethiopian coffee farmers. Multinacional coffee companies now rule shopping malls and supermerkats and dominate the industry worth over $80 billion,making valuable commodity in the world afer oil.

The film justaposes how the coffee trinkers of the western world pay $3 -$5 for our high-price espresso drinks while the crushingly poor farmers producing yummy espresso beans barely make ends meet.

Why the world accepte it ?

Nice weekend and thinking it in our next coffe cup …

New language,new culture and way of life

leave a comment »

Good morning my friends,

 

 

Are you looking for ways to make a different? Why the people in one volunteering learn things for always?

Abroad volunteering can be one of the most rewarding and best investments you can make with you time. A volunteer is someone who performs a service for free.

Besides helping others, as a volunteer you will contribute considerably to your own career development. Volunteering can help you more clearly define your career path, while enhancing existing skills or developing a variety of new skills.

You bring personal satisfaction, a strengthened sense of personal achievement and value, and increased confidence often result from making a positive impact on an organization or directly on a person’s life.

You will have the opportunity to see the world with a purpose while changing it for the better. Learning the new culture and enhancing the cultural integrity of local people.

Have yor realized one abroad volunteering? Which are the things that you will remember for always ?

Nice day,

Mireya
