Rainforest

Rainforest
Most of equatorial Africa, or land near the equator, is a lush, tropical rainforest. The rainforest is hot and wet; an average of more than 70 inches of rain falls annually. Rainforest is home to some of the world's most important vegetation because it provides oxygen to the entire planet, and keeps the earth's temperature from rising. If the earth's temperature rises, even by a few degrees, the ice near the north and south poles will melt and the oceans will rise. Most of Palm Beach County is less than ten feet about sea level, so global warming could have a strong impact on our lives.
RAMADAN Ramadan is celebrated in the ninth month of the Muslim calendar, the most holiest month and is special because it was in the ninth month that the Prophet Muhammad first began to receive revelations or the word of God. To remind the Muslims of this they are suppose to fast for 30 days straight of Ramadan from dawn until sunset. They are not suppose to eat or drink anything at all, nor smoke, nor have any sexual relations during this time.
Ramatoulaye

Ramatoulaye Diallo
Ramatoulaye Diallo is a model from Senegal, who won the Face of Africa 2001. She was persuaded to have her head shaved bald by the stylists for the competition and it seems to have done her no harm at all. When Jan Malan (Head Scout) found Ramatoulaye, she had natural dreadlocks. The international beauticians hired for the final show found her hair quite a challenge to style, and something drastic had to be done.

THE POWER OF HUMANITY

The Federation's mission is to improve the lives of vulnerable people by mobilizing the power of humanity. Vulnerable people are those who are at greatest risk from situations that threaten their survival, or their capacity to live with an acceptable level of social and economic security and human dignity. Often, these are victims of natural disasters, poverty brought about by socio-economic crises, refugees, and victims of health emergencies.

Cecil John Rhodes
(1853 - 1902)

Cecil John Rhodes
Cecil John Rhodes was a South African statesman. He was born in 1853 at Bishop's Stortford, Hertfordshire and died in 1902. He went to South Africa and worked at the Kimberley diamond mines. In 1881 he amalgamated a number of Kimberely diamond mines with the De Beers Company, and in the same year started in politics, being elected to the Cape Assembly. He pursued a policy of British expansion in south Africa, in 1884 arranging the acquisition of Bechuanaland, becoming deputy commissioner of the region. Also in 1884 he obtained a considerable increase of territory across the Zulu border. In 1887 he turned his attention to Matabeleland, and in 1888 arranged a treaty to be signed placing the country under British protection, obtaining from the Matabele chief Lobengula a concession of mineral and other rights, the British South Africa Company was subsequently formed in 1889 to work the concession. The territory (now Zimbabwe) came under the control of Rhodes' company.

VISIT RWANA

Flag Rwanda

As of mid-1997 it was safe, despite the massive upheavals in the region, to visit Rwanda overland from Uganda or Tanzania to see the gorillas in the Parc National des Volcans (via Kigali). The most important thing to bear in mind is that this is Africa, and in Africa things change rapidly. Itís not enough to simply assume that things will still be all right now.
