Discussions Discussion Food & hunger
Katarina E, May 17, 2013

Good evening :)
I think it’s shame of humanity that in 21st century every 5 seconds one human being dies from hunger. In world are so much people which are wasting and trowing food when at the same time, for example, children in Africa don’t have water and any food. In my opinion reason for world hunger is that some parts of the world are undeveloped. We certainly need to change something. People can send money for their food, for building homes to stop diseases.
However, some people don’t care for that and that is something which we need to change, people need to know in what conditions people are living.
World hunger is the problem which we need to solve.
Here is link for organisation Mary’s Meals where you can donate money online and 10$ would be enough for one child education in whole year.

Discussions Discussion Space Travel
Katarina E, May 12, 2013

Hello everybody :)
Space was always fascinated me but I don’t agree wholly with idea of space travel. With milions of people which don’t have water or food for surviving I think it’s absured to send commercial flights in space . With money that world spend on racets, satellits I think that half of that money will save hungry people in Africa and all around the world. Of course that we should explore space around us like we was on Moon in 1969th but it’s not necessary to look for life on Mars or on every other planet if we have our beautiful planet Earth. Greetings to all ;)

    I agree with John,
    that's it the true idea, to defend what we have now: The Earth Planet, our home.
    However, I believe that investing in space travel development would pay off just in case our “efforts” (rather scarce, I must say) in saving our planet will not work.
    In my case I'm firmly convinced that every euro/dollar spent in space return to us quadrupled.

    I agree to a certain extent. I believe that we should definitely use that money somewhere closer to home. To feed starving people for example. But also I like the subject of exploring new areas and space has always been a fascinating subject to me. Another thing I thought of was why not focus on our deep oceans? There is a statistic that somewhere around 98% of our ocean isn't explored yet. So why focus on somewhere away form earth when really there is a whole universe of life that we haven't explored.

    I agree that it is important to take care of our planet before seeking to inhabit and take care of other planets, but I see space travel as a very important aspect of human expansion. The rate at which Earth’s population is growing is beyond anything ever before seen. No one can deny that one day, this world will basically be destroyed due to lack of space for people to live. Nature will no exist due to the needs of humans and the atmosphere will become polluted by waste. This is where the importance of space travel comes in. There are trillions of space bodies in the universe and based on mathematical probabilities and locations to suns and stars, there must be more planets out there that are capable of human habitation. There are probably planets out there that actually even have life and humanlike creatures. If we are going to keep populating the world as we are, it is our responsibility to find outlets when Earth becomes too small for us.

Andrew Dosunmu is one of the coolest Nigerian independent filmmakers. His latest film, Restless City, tells the story of young, nomadic Senegalese immigrant, Djbirl (played by Sy Alassane), an aspiring musician, struggling to survive on the fringes of New York City. When he falls in love with a prostitute (Jamaican-born model/actress Nicole Grey) who works for the local loan shark. This is a story of love and survival with some amazing photography!

Military Coup in Mali:
The soldiers appeared on state television Thursday morning after a night of gunfire around the presidential palace, announcing they had created a new committee to rule the country.

At the Sudan protests in Washington DC, George Clooney was arrested for peacefully protesting outside the Sudanese embassy…

I thought I’d share this wickedly atmospheric hip hop track from Gael Fay, entitled Petit Pays. It’s an ode to his home country Burundi (central Africa). Happy weekend!

White Elephants, (nzoku ya pembe) is an upcoming documentary on the central post office and its employees in Kinshasa, DR Congo. This grand relic of the colonial past has trapped its employees in a frozen timewarp from which they are planning their escape.

Spoek Mathambo is a post-Apartheid glam-rap prince from Soweto. Breaking the notion and stereotype expectations of African musicians, his tunes don’t sound South African – no longer looking back on cultural ties, while fusing beats and sounds from synth mixers & samplers to kwaito beats…chill

Die Antwoord…the hottest rave/rap band in the world…straight from Africa…Cape Town to be exact. Here they are performing ‘I Fink U Freaky’ on Letterman. Love ‘em or hate ‘em, their videos are the most over the top, offensively brilliant productions ever. Look some of them up on youtube!

Africa has its own Mark Zuckerbergs, Andrew Masons, Mark Pincuses, Larry Pages and Sergey Brins. But it lacks its own Yuri Milners, John Doerrs, Vinod Khoslas and Y Combinators.
