06.02.2013 Colonialists are on move into Africa, after resources, there is clean air also!?! Our Northern Hemisphere is radiated from Fukushima,,. water, even sky's are less polluted on other side of continent! Just a thought. Enslave the planet plans, war atrocities on rise!?? Old tactics of invasions...re-settling, destabilizing... occupation! WARmongers! Stop War! We demand PEACE Invaders...GO Home! Mirror: PressTVGlobalNews Published on Feb 5, 2013 An analyst says the United States and France are after the rich mineral wealth of oil, uranium and gold in Mali. Thousands of people in Mali have been forced to flee their homes amid the French war, which involved some 3,500 troops on the ground supported by warplanes, helicopters and armored vehicles.
The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said more than 5,000 Malian refugees have arrived in Mauritania alone since January 11, when France launched the war under the pretext of halting the advance of the fighters in Mali.

Press TV has conducted an interview with investigative journalist David Lindorff to further discuss the issue. Original upload: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EyIk7xXxpuE THANKS FOR WATCHING...SUBSCRIBE FAIR USE NOTICE:

Mine Cristal, mining quartz crystals
 
08:02
www.minecristal.ca Stay informed about our new videos: subscribe to our YouTube channel "Mine Cristal". This mine is located in Bonsecours, Quebec, Canada. Photos and video clips shown here date from 1989 - 2012. The open-pit mine produces splendid quartz crystals with exceptional clarity. The largest single crystals measure 60 cm (24 inches) in length. Since mining began in 1989, 32 types, or morphologies of quartz crystals have been catalogued. Geological research into the origins of these crystals has revealed that they formed at this location some 300 million years ago under extreme conditions of heat and pressure. We harvest crystals in the mine only as needed, to supply our store with a sufficient quantity of quartz crystals. Exceptionally (for a mine), we harvest all the crystals by hand and without the use of dynamite. It is a privilege for us to participate in the discovery and extraction of these true gems of nature. The extraction process is done in a manner which respects both the environment and the crystals: we endeavor to keep the crystals whole and in a pristine state. In the museum and the store, our crystals are presented in an untouched, natural state. Amazingly, each crystal is an intricate work of art made by Nature; no two are alike and this makes them even more fascinating! Mine Cristal is considered by experts to be a “geological gem,” one of Canada’s great natural sites, due to it’s unique and abundant mineralogical deposits.

7 Fascinating Facts about Guinea
 
03:24
Let’s talk about Guinea. First and foremost, there are four countries that contain the name Guinea: 3 in Africa and one in Oceania. Why? Because Europeans called a big chunk of West Africa simply Guinea and the 3 modern African countries are in that region. And the Oceanian Papua New Guinea got its name because Europeans thought the people there look like the people from Guinea. You can now support this channel via Patreon, by accessing the link bellow.

More information about the video content bellow: 1. The region was called Guinea broadly when it was first "discovered" by Europeans, before the colonization. If you look at the map, Europeans had already started to name specific parts of "Guinea" individually: Gold Coast , Wheat Coast, Slave Coast, Ivory Coast, etc. When Europeans were first exploring western Africa, they gave broad regional names. Specifics got filled in later. 2. The Niger River, which starts in the densely forested southeast highlands of Guinea, is the principal river of western Africa. It is the third longest river of Africa. Its name possibly comes from the Tuareg phrase 'her n gheren', meaning 'river of rivers'. This name, shortened to ngher, is a local name used along the middle stretch of the river near Timbuktu, Mali. 3. The land that is now Guinea belonged to a series of African empires until France colonized it in the 1890s, and made it part of French West Africa. Guinea declared its independence from France on 2 October 1958. From independence until the presidential election of 2010, Guinea was governed by a number of autocratic rulers. 4. Conakry, the capital of Guinea, is apparently one of the wettest capitals in the world with an incredible 3.7 metres of rain per year! 5. Guinea boasts of spectacular landscape with lush and verdant rainforests and plenty of wildlife in the south. The waterfall-rich Fouta Djalon Plateau in the west has breathtaking scenery. 6. The country of Guinea has vast amounts of mineral and agricultural resources, containing approximately 25% of the world’s bauxite reserves, a major component of aluminium. But Guinea's poorly developed infrastructure and rampant corruption ranks the country as the 182nd least developed nation out of 188. 7. The literacy rate of Guinea is one of the lowest in the world: in 2010 it was estimated that only 41% of adults were literate. Primary education is compulsory for 6 years, but most children do not attend for so long, and many do not go to school at all. Children, particularly girls, are kept out of school in order to assist their parents with domestic work or agriculture, or to be married: Guinea has one of the highest rates of child marriage in the world.

7 Facts about the heart of Africa: the Central African Republic
 
03:18
The Central African Republic is a diverse country, located in Central Africa. Despite its violent uprisings that define its history since independence from France, the country still retains a lot of potential for development, as it is rich in natural resources. The lands of the Central African Republic have been a cradle for human kind for thousands of years, so it’s definitely an interesting place.

The present-day capital of CAR, Bangui, rests beside the River Ubangi. Places of interest include the colourful Central Market, the Boganda Museum, the Arts and Crafts School, the cathedral and the Saint Paul Mission. 2. At Bouar, in the east of the country, see burial mounds thought to be thousands of years old, studded with tanjunu (upright megaliths). About 2,500 years ago local farmers set up megaliths weighing several tons each near Bouar. The cooperation necessary to make and position these monuments suggests that they were built by large social units. 3. Boali is a town located in the Central African Republic prefecture of Ombella-M’Poko. Situated on the Mbali River, Boali is noted for its waterfalls and for the nearby hydroelectric dam. The Falls of Boali are 250 m wide and 50 m high. 4. The population of the Central African Republic has almost quadrupled since independence. In 1960, the population was 1,232,000; as of 2014, it is approximately 4,709,000. The nation is divided into over 80 ethnic groups, each with its own language. The 2 official languages are French and Sango, CAR being one of the few African countries to have an African language as their official language. 5. From the 16th to 19th century, the people of this region were ravaged by slave traders. The French occupied the region in 1894. After World War II a rebellion forced the French to grant self-government and in 1960 it became independent. 6. The three most important parks are Manovo-Gounda St Floris, known for its high concentration of hippos; Bamingui-Bangoran in the north; and Dzanga-Sangha in the southwest. The game population of these national parks is impressive. It is also possible to view gorillas in Bayanga. 7. Despite its significant mineral deposits and other resources, such as uranium reserves, oil, gold, diamonds, cobalt, lumber, and hydropower, as well as significant quantities of arable land, the Central African Republic is among the ten poorest countries in the world. As of 2014, the country had the second lowest level of human development, ranking 187th out of 188 countries.

Uranium Mine in Niger Taken Over by French Forces Amid Mali Battles
 
06:43
02/04/2013 French troops have been called to protect one of Niger's biggest uranium mines as security fears spike. Analyst John Laughland tells RT, that France taking the military lead in Mali and coming to Niger might be a sign of a continent-size interest. Niger's President Issoufou asked his counterpart Hollande for military help after the recent hostage crisis at an Algerian gas plant and over the growing threat of militant attacks since France launched its Operation Serval in neighboring Mali. French company Areva plays a major part in mining in Niger, the world's fifth-largest producer of uranium. The company gets much of its uranium from the two mines it operates in the country, at Arlit and Imouraren. Arlit was attacked by militants three years ago and four hostages -- three French nationals among them -- are still being held.Asked if he could confirm that French Special Forces are now guarding the uranium mine, President Issoufou told channel TV5: "Absolutely I can confirm." Niger's uranium mines are a major source of raw material for French nuclear power plants, so observers wonder if energy resources are a factor in the West's increased interest in the African continent. For more on that, RT talks to the director of studies at the Institute of democracy and cooperation in Paris, John Laughland. http://LeakSource.wordpress.com http://twitter.com/LeakSourceNews

The Origin of Cinco de Mayo - Second French Intervention in Mexico
 
06:51
The year is 1861, and it has been 40 years since Mexico gained its independence from Spain. These 40 years have been tumultuous, to say the least, but nothing would come close to threaten their independence than the Imperial ambitions of a new Napoleon. This is the story of how a young and unstable Republic fought off an Empire, this is the story of the Second French Intervention in Mexico. Hi there! This is Barris, a French – American that lived most of his life in France and is passionate about learning, exploring, hiking and cooking. It’s a vast and beautiful world out there so join us as we discover the historical, cultural and culinary heritage of France, Europe and the rest of the World. This, of course, will take a lot of resources and only you can make it happen! So, if you enjoy our content, please consider supporting the community by sharing, liking, commenting, and subscribing: https://www.youtube.com/c/thisisbarris?sub_confirmation=1 I post twice a month so make sure to check out the channel regularly. In 1848, Mexico was defeated by the Americans. As a result, Dictator Santa Anna was exiled from the country and tensions rose further and further between the liberals, led by Benito Juárez, and the conservatives leading to yet another civil war a decade later. On the 17th of July 1861, Juárez suspended any loan repayment to European powers for 2 years. He had good reasons to as the Mexican economy was devastated. But these loans amounted to 70M pesos for Britain, 9M for Spain and 3M for France so the Europeans objected to it Furthermore, Napoleon Trois, the nephew of the first, was elected as President of France following the 1848 revolution. He dissolved the assembly 3 years later to establish the Second French Empire. Much like his uncle, Napoleon III hoped to make a great French Empire. He eyed the unstable but mineral-rich country of Mexico. Through the installation of a puppet government, he hoped to open the country to European trade and secure French access to Mexican silver as well as curb US expansionism. The loan repayment as well as the start of the American civil war, which meant that the US would be unable to impose its Monroe doctrine, felt like the perfect time to do just that. In December, Spanish, British and French fleets arrived to Veracruz, which quickly fell and then Cordoba and Orizaba. In February 1862, the Spanish signed the Convention of La Soledad which stated that the alliance recognized the Republican government of Mexico. During that time, however, France kept sending more and more expeditionary forces to Mexico. This resulted in the withdrawal of Spanish and British forces in late April. Meanwhile, 6,500 men, under the orders of De Lorencez, marched towards Mexico City while the Mexicans, under the orders of General Ignacio Zaragoza, marched a smaller, inexperienced and ill-equipped army against an army that hadn’t been defeated since Waterloo, nearly half a century ago. The first encounter between the French and Mexican troops occurred on April 28th and was a resounding defeat for the Mexican army. As a result, Zaragoza was forced to retreat with his 4,000 men to the heavily fortified city of Puebla. On the night of May 3rd, Zaragoza arrived at Puebla, leaving him barely any time to fortify the city as the French troops arrived just two days later at 9AM. At 11:45, the French artillery started shelling the Guadalupe fort with little effect as the old stone held firm. Against all advice, De Lorencez ordered his men to assault the fort. They tried twice, but were pushed back. Finally, De Lorecenz sent his full reserve for the third assault. However, by that time, the artillery had used all its ammunition and so, the assault was carried out unsupported. As a final blow, the retreating French troops were charged by Zaragoza’s cavalry. Soon after, a torrential rain started, which made the ground too muddy for any hope of another attack. Demoralized, the French camped another few days before they finally withdrew back to Orizaba. That night, the bells of Puebla rang, and the Mexican troops celebrated by singing “La Marseillaise”, which had been banned by Napoleon III. Zaragoza wouldn’t live to see the Day Mexico was liberated by France as he died of Typhus only four months after his heroic victory at Puebla. In his memory, the town of Puebla was renamed Puebla de Zaragoza. And when Juárez regained control of the country, he decided to commemorate the Battle of Puebla by declaring the 5th of May a national holiday, hence where Cinco de Mayo comes from. Cinco de Mayo does not celebrate Mexican independence. Mexico’s independence is celebrated on the 16th of September, the day “El Grito de Dolores” started their independence war. Furthermore, cinco de mayo isn’t really that much of a big deal in Mexico and is celebrated at best with military parades and battle reenactments. #CincodeMayo

Afghanistan's Secret Billion Dollar Emerald Mines
 
27:50
Hidden Gems: After suffering the Soviets, the Taliban, and the War on Terror, Afghanistan has had its share of turmoil; but can 1,000 billion dollars worth of emeralds lift Afghanistan out of poverty? Subscribe to Journeyman for daily uploads: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures For similar stories see: Exposing The Inhumane Conditions Of Burkina Faso's Gold Mines https://youtu.be/c7iv1fef6qo Zimbabwe's Blood Diamond Killing Fields https://youtu.be/k9Bk5VIhjiY The Children Risking Their Lives In Underwater Gold Mines https://youtu.be/P1L_pxYZVwE "We have a lot of requests from Europe because the Emeralds from Afghanistan are the best in the world", Raphael says. He's a Frenchman who first came to Afghanistan to train Afghan security services before venturing into the emerald trade. He sees a huge chance here to exploit a market that could easily increase in value twenty or thirty-fold, but the obstacles are not inconsiderable. Just to get to the mines Raphael has to travel the 150 Kilometres from Kabul to Panjshir, right through Taliban kidnap country. When he gets there he finds an industry in the dark ages, where homemade pyrotechnics are exploded in poorly dug mineshafts, killing many miners and ruining the quality of up to 75% of the stones they dig. "If you see the damage being done to these stones... so much is lost", Yama Torabi from Integrity Watch Afghanistan tells us. The government here remains hopelessly out of touch with the industry that "still (uses) a mining law adopted 100 years ago". But as the country prepares for elections and Europeans like Raphael open up the gem trade here, could this be a beacon of hope for the future?

Stay Younger, Longer - The Lowdown on Sunscreen

Follow me on instagram here http://instagram.com/lisaeldridgemakeup. For all the products that are featured in this film click on the links below: 100% of advertising revenue is donated to charity. This film is full of information about the latest rules, regulations and the ingredients to know when it comes to sunscreen. I've spoken to many dermatologists and scientists in the UK and USA and have included products recommended by them, as well as some personal favourites that I use on myself and my celebrity clients. Keeping your skin protected in the sun is one of the easiest ways you can keep it looking younger for longer, and with so many great textures and formulas available now for every skin type, there really is no excuse not to wear SPF everyday ;) I hope the film is helpful for everyone who asked for it.x On my lips is Lancôme's Shine Lover in 218 : http://lisae.me.uk/26801-27000 and Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat in Iconic Nude: http://lisae.me.uk/26504-27000 Update - July 2016 I recently went back to the experts I spoke to in this film to see if there had been any changes in terms of the disparity between America and the rest of the world when it comes to sunscreen. Jeff Murad, Vice President Product Development at Murad Skincare, told me that, 'While the FDA has been talking a lot lately about fast-tracking the approval of some sunscreen actives, we have not seen any activity yet.' Nathan Rivas, Senior Researcher at Paula's Choice also said that, unfortunately, 'because the Sunscreen Innovation Act didn’t allow for changes to the FDA testing requirements (nor provide funding for additional resources in managing this process), the result is that no new sunscreen ingredients are expected to meet FDA approval anytime in the next few years. L’Oréal came the closest with Mexoryl SX at the end of last summer, but still failed to meet the FDA's requirements.' However, he did point out that many skincare companies are focusing their efforts on improving and innovating the ways in which they are able to use the FDA's current, approved sunscreen actives - with 'improved aesthetics and reduced skin sensitivity' among the intended results of these advancements... watch this space.

The new scramble for Africa’s resources – looting or development?
 
01:01:43
The outside world has its eye increasingly set on Africa. Farming lands and new discoveries of oil, gas and minerals have made the continent interesting again – not only for former colonial powers and the United States but also China and India. Under the motto “trade no aid”, Africa’s poor are to be lifted by trade rather than aid. Meanwhile, history shows that rich natural resources easily become a curse. Instead of creating jobs, better education and healthcare, large export revenues often lead to corruption, conflict and to countries becoming dependent on raw materials. Who are the winners and who are the losers in the new scramble for Africa’s resources? Who ensures that the fortunes will benefit the citizens themselves, and what is required for a broad community development? These issues were discussed at a live-streamed panel debate in Lund on 10 November. Panellists included: Margaret C Lee, leading Africa researcher and author of “The 21st Century Scramble for Africa” Nnimmo Bassey, was awarded the Right Livelihood Award in 2010 for discoveries about the humanitarian and ecological disaster as a result of the Nigerian oil industry. Erik Esbjörnsson, Africa correspondent for Dagens Nyheter Moderator: Andreas Ekström, journalist Introduction by Ellen Hillbom, Africa Researcher at Lund University

The EMerald master course aims to train a new generation of engineers with an entrepreneurial mindset and a global vision of the value chain, putting the extraction of mineral and metal resources at the beginning of a circle which ends by collecting end-of-life products and recovering valuable materials out of the urban mines (circular economy). Therefore, the master course will focus on two aspects: - bridging the gap between geological exploration and mineral processing by offering innovative education in geometallurgy - helping to close the loop in a resource-efficient way by forming professionals who know the processing challenges and the need to meet targets in terms of recyclability.

French town of Vittel suffering water shortages as Nestle accused of 'overusing' resources
 
04:18
It is the source of one of the world’s most popular mineral waters, but the eastern French town of Vittel risks running dry. Nestlé Waters, which owns the Vittel brand, is accused by residents and environmentalists of “overusing” local spring water that supplies the town and its bottling plant to maintain exports. The company denies the allegation. The underground water level has been falling by 30 centimetres (nearly 12 inches) a year since 1990, according to the French government’s geological bureau. It has gone down by 10 metres in the past four decades. The consumer association, 60 Millions de Consommateurs, blames “over-exploitation” of the local spring. Bernard Schmitt, a Vittel resident, said: “We’ve grown used to having this excellent water on tap, but more water is now being extracted than the water table is capable of regenerating. Nestlé says it is using water without exhausting the spring, but that isn’t what’s happening.” Nestlé is licensed to use a million cubic metres a year for its Vittel Bonne Source mineral water, exported to Germany and other neighbouring countries. The company says it uses other sources for its other brands.  Another 600,000 cubic metres of local spring water are allocated to a cheesemaking company, Ermitage. The two companies use nearly half of Vittel’s water, while the remainder goes to consumers in Vittel, which has a population of 5,000, and surrounding areas. Nestlé says it is understands the need to reduce water consumption and has cut its usage by 20 per cent over the past 10 years. Christophe Klotz, head of Agrivair, a Nestlé subsidiary, said the company was prepared to make further reductions. “We have offered to voluntarily reduce the quota allocated to us by 25 per cent,” he told France 2 television. “This is a very substantial effort.” However, Nestlé acknowledged in a statement that the reduction “will not be enough to compensate for the shortfall” and said it was seeking “a durable solution” with local officials. Jean-François Fleck, head of a local environmental group, Vosges Nature Environnement, said: “There has been a shortfall in water regeneration since the 1970s, when the water deficit was about 2.5 million cubic metres a year. Today it has stabilised at about 800,000 cubic metres, which is equivalent to Nestlé’s current usage.” If nothing is done to halt the fall, residents used to having Vittel spring water on tap may be forced to rely on water piped in from the village of Lerrain, 12 miles away. Installing pipelines could cost up to €50 million (£43.6m). “The work would be funded out of people’s water bills so very clearly we are going to be paying so that Nestlé can continue taking and exporting our water,” Mr Schmitt said.

The Central Highlands Rural Development Programme is implemented in Bamyan and Wardak Provinces and targets the general improvement of livelihoods and living conditions through support to agriculture and livestock activities, energy-saving solutions, and natural resource management. The Programme is funded by the French Agency for Development. The Central Highlands Programme Inauguration took place in Bamyan in the presence of His Excellency the Ambassador of France in Afghanistan, H.E. the Deputy Governor of Bamyan Province, H.E. Representative of Bamyan Provincial Council, representatives of donors (AFD – French Agency for Development) and international organisations (United Nations, Aga Khan Development Network), local and international NGOs, and other development stakeholders in the areas. More than 100 participants gathered, agreeing on the importance of enhancing exchange and communication to address rural development issues together. Through the inauguration speeches, the importance of coordination between Afghan institutions, International organisations, and Civil Society Organisations on development projects was highlighted. This coordination was also made possible by the thematic round tables organised in the afternoon, on agricultural development and energy-saving solutions. Those round tables triggered very interesting discussions that will be followed in the coming months by the involved organisations. Besides, a large part of the event was dedicated to informal exchange, centred on the development exhibition held by several stakeholders involved in development activities, including agriculture and livestock, environment, and handicrafts...

Spatial Data Infrastructure for Marine Environnement Ifremer initiatives in France and in Europe
 
14:28
Access to ocean and marine data is a major issue both for marine related researches and for marine environment management and spatial planning in application of Water Framework Directive (WFD) and Marine Strategy Framework Directive (MSFD). However, marine observation is still difficult and expensive and, consequently, observation activities must be engaged by several organizations in all European Coastal States. Ifremer contribute to (or coordinator of) several European projects dealing with ocean observations and data management such as Argo, Seadatanet, Geoseas, Emodnet, etc. Ifremer has also developed strong relationships with international organisation such as IOC. Underwater technologies, biodiversity, fisheries science and aquaculture, coastal environment, mineral resources, biotechnologies and operational oceanography are all part of its research missions and fields of skill and excellence. In addition it has to implement a national and European strategy for marine databases. In the framework of these initiatives, advances have been achieved both in the national and transnational cooperation: data policies, share of environmental data and also in the technical implementation of distributed spatial data systems (metadata management, portal accessing distributed repositories,...). These systems are now operationally robust and supports European Commission Directorate-General -- Mare preparatory actions for the MSFD such as the European Marine Observation and Data Network (http://www.emodnet-hydrography.eu/) Technologies used have been chosen to be compliant to Inspire directive both for discovery, data access and data visualization services. Standardization has been considered as a key point for the success of the integration of very large partnerships in data management. Moreover, these technologies and standards had to be adapted to the marine domain: management of the 3D for the water column, management of the time for environmental dynamic and variability. Ifremer has developed a spatial data infrastructure, called Sextant (http://www.ifremer.fr/sextant/), in order to answer to the Inspire Directive. The aim of this paper is to introduce technologies developed for the Sextant infrastructure. Sextant is a portal to manage, share and retrieve geographical marine information in order to support multidisciplinary studies (share of geographical information across disciplines environmental, socio-economical, regulations, geosciences) and support of decision making (management of usages and resources of coastal zone and fisheries, risk assessment, renewable marine energies). The mains functionalities of Sextant are : - the possibility of creating a web portal for each thematic catalog; - the 'Catalog' allows end-users to search one or more metadata according to different criteria (geographic extent, theme,...). To promote the share and distribution of datasets we have normalized the data description (ISO 19115), the XML encoding (ISO 19139) and access to catalogs (CSW); - the Web GIS interface allows end-users to create maps including several layers from internal and external sources. The portal access to local or remote OGC services displaying data by WMS; - the download basket allows end-users to download the selected data in various formats and projections for use in GIS software. Sextant allows access to multidimensional gridded datasets thanks to Web Services (WMS, WCS, SWE) developed for oceanographic model output, meteorological model output and digital elevation model. At the moment, Sextant offers 2000 metadata on-line describing around 5000 geographic information. SeaDataNet offers the same kind of services at European level and relies of a distributed network of data centers and describes more than 1 million of observations data sets. The objective of this presentation is to present the methods, tools and resources developed by Ifremer to meet the requirements of the Inspire Directive while ensuring interoperability of these information systems. by E.

Congo, My Precious. The Curse of the coltan mines in Congo
 
52:01
Watch more https://rtd.rt.com/tags/illegal-mining/ The Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa is one of the world’s most resource-rich countries. A wide range of rare minerals can be found here in abundance, all commanding high prices in world commodity markets. Diamonds for jewellery, tantalum, tungsten and gold for electronics; uranium used in power generation and weaponry and many others. Congo has copious deposits of raw materials that are in high demand internationally but remains one of the poorest countries in the world. From colonisation, with the horrors of slavery and other atrocities, to a turbulent and equally brutal present in which militant groups control the mines, Congo’s richness in natural resources has brought nothing but misery. Referred to as “conflict minerals”, these riches leave only a trail of death, destruction and poverty. Under Belgian rule, Congolese labourers were often required to meet quotas when mining different minerals. Failure could mean punishment by having a hand cut off with a machete. The country gained independence in 1960, but that didn’t put a stop to slave and child labour or to crimes being committed to extract and exploit the minerals. Warring militant fractions from inside the country and beyond seized control of mines for their own benefit while terrorising local populations. For our translator, Bernard Kalume Buleri, his country’s history of turmoil is very personal; like most Congolese people, he and his family fell victim to the unending mineral based power struggle. Born in the year of his country’s independence, he has lived through war and seen his homeland torn apart by violent looting and greed. His story is a damning testament, illustrating how nature’s bounty, instead of being a blessing, becomes a deadly curse.

Genocide in Southern Cameroon
 
08:03
BREAKING NEWS FROM THE MASSIVE FAILURE OF THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY AND WORLD LEADERS TO PROSECUTE WAR CRIMES PRISONER PAUL BIYA FOR GENOCIDE AGAINST AMBAZONIANS SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THEIR DEEP DIRTY AND SELFISH INTEREST IN THE POLITICS OF AMBAZONIA NATURAL RESOURCES. These world powers namely France, Great Britain, Germany, China, Russia, all have deep interest and profit making from Ambazonia mineral resources. They are empowering Paul Biya to stay in power in order to safe guard their easy access to Ambazonia natural resources. These western powers are the most corrupt trouble makers in Africa and can't survive without Ambazonia mineral resources that they have been stealing for the past 57 years. Why would United Nations security council members like china, france, great britain and russia be sponsoring mass killings and worst genocide in cameroonbecause of selfish interest in getting and exploring Ambazonia natural resources to enrich their countries while Ambazonians remain with no roads, no schools, no houses, no jobs, no good drinking water and better healthcare system for their citizens.? Above all, it was the UN that failed miserably because they too are corrupt. But what have they learned from it corrupt secretary general who collected bribed from Paul Biya and France to stay silent? In reaction to the fiasco and worst genocide in Rwanda and South Sudan? the UN developed a new system in 2005, with their Responsibility to obliges states to protect their population from grave human rights violations, genocide and ethnic cleansing. and If a state like dirty and evil Cameroon does not fulfill its responsibility to protect it's people, the international community can assume this responsibility and intervene militarily. That has not happen in Ambazonia. Instead soldiers wearing United nations uniforms and hats were the ones looting, and killing Ambazonians in burning houses. The international community must irrevocably pledge to help Ambazonia quickly, efficiently and exclusively to protect human rights as many Ambazonians are being killed with their homes and cities being burnt down to ashes. The international community made a fatal mistake by not forcing Paul Biya to call for inclusive dialogue. United nations is silent in forcing Paul Biya to call for inclusive dialogue because almost all of the members of united nations security council are deeply involved in sponsoring genocide in southern cameroons due to mineral resources.United nations should never again look the other way when such terrible crimes of genocide are committed against innocent Ambazonians by it'sown members namely France, Great britain, Russia and China who giving money and military weapons to Paul Biya to kill more Ambazonians in order for them to steal Ambazonian resources. May the mighty effort of Unted States of America in fighting for the freedom and liberation of Ambazonia lead to complete separation and independence in the mighty name of Jesus Amen.

How Ondo State became a victim of bad leadership since Awo days--Prophet Tibetan
 
15:33
In his series of encounter with Asabe Afrika TV team since his return from a six weeks trip to Canada, France, London and Republic of Ireland, renowned Prophet, Dr. M.K.O. Tibetan reviewed the economic viability of Ondo State which happens to be the state he hails from, and submitted that bad leadership has consistently killed the economic potential of Ondo. Prophet Tibetan, a gifted seer whose prophecies are accurate traced the problem of Ondo State to the existence of bad political leaders (e.g Governors) who were never truly indigenous. Prophet Tibetan who was livid with the reality that Ondo State could be richer than Lagos State in terms of Internal Generated Revenue if the mineral resources and natural resources are managed well, gave more reasons why Ondo State is lying fallow as a giant without strides.

HELLO GUYS HOW R U ALL , IN THIS VIDEO IM TALK ABOUT FIJI . #FIJI #FIJIFACTS #MINIINDIA Fiji (/ˈfiːdʒiː/ (About this sound listen) FEE-jee; Fijian: Viti [ˈβitʃi]; Fiji Hindi: फ़िजी), officially the Republic of Fiji[10] (Fijian: Matanitu Tugalala o Viti;[11] Fiji Hindi: फ़िजी गणराज्य),[12] is an island country in Melanesia in the South Pacific Ocean about 1,100 nautical miles (2,000 km; 1,300 mi) northeast of New Zealand's North Island. Its closest neighbours are Vanuatu to the west, New Caledonia to the southwest, New Zealand's Kermadec Islands to the southeast, Tonga to the east, the Samoas and France's Wallis and Futuna to the northeast, and Tuvalu to the north. Fiji is an archipelago of more than 330 islands, of which 110 are permanently inhabited, and more than 500 islets, amounting to a total land area of about 18,300 square kilometres (7,100 sq mi). The farthest island is Ono-i-Lau. The two major islands, Viti Levu and Vanua Levu, account for 87% of the total population of 898,760. The capital, Suva on Viti Levu, serves as Fiji's principal cruise port.[13] About three-quarters of Fijians live on Viti Levu's coasts, either in Suva or in smaller urban centres like Nadi (tourism)[13] or Lautoka (sugar cane industry). Viti Levu's interior is sparsely inhabited due to its terrain.[14] Fiji has one of the most developed economies in the Pacific due to an abundance of forest, mineral, and fish resources. Today, the main sources of foreign exchange are its tourist industry and sugar exports.[3] The country's currency is the Fijian dollar. Fiji's local government, in the form of city and town councils, is supervised by the Ministry of Local Government and Urban Development.[15] The majority of Fiji's islands were formed through volcanic activity starting around 150 million years ago. Today, some geothermal activity still occurs on the islands of Vanua Levu and Taveuni.[16] Fiji has been inhabited since the second millennium BC, and was settled first by Austronesians and later by Melanesians, with some Polynesian influences. Europeans visited Fiji from the 17th century,[17] and, after a brief period as an independent kingdom, the British established the Colony of Fiji in 1874. Fiji was a Crown colony until 1970, when it gained independence as a Commonwealth realm. A republic was declared in 1987, following a series of coups d'état. Pottery art from Fijian towns shows that Fiji was settled before or around 3500 to 1000 BC, although the question of Pacific migration still lingers. It is believed that the Lapita people or the ancestors of the Polynesians settled the islands first but not much is known of what became of them after the Melanesians arrived; they may have had some influence on the new culture, and archaeological evidence shows that they would have then moved on to Samoa, Tonga and even Hawai'i. The first Europeans to land and live among the Fijians were shipwrecked sailors like Charles Savage. The first settlements in Fiji were started by voyaging traders and settlers from the west about 5000 years ago. Lapita pottery shards have been found at numerous excavations around the country. Aspects of Fijian culture are similar to the Melanesian culture of the western Pacific but have a stronger connection to the older Polynesian cultures. Trade between Fiji and neighbouring archipelagos long before European contact is testified by the canoes made from native Fijian trees found in Tonga and Tongan words being part of the language of the Lau group of islands. Pots made in Fiji have been found in Samoa and even the Marquesas Islands.
