Johannesburg - Zimbabwe President Robert Mugabe has blasted former president Nelson Mandela 's reconciliation policies, and has labelled him "too much of a saint" in a television interview, The Sunday Independent reported.
"Mandela has gone a bit too far in doing good to the non-black communities, really in some cases at the expense of [blacks]... ," Mugabe reportedly told talk show host Dali Tambo in an interview. "That is being too saintly, too good, too much of a saint," he said. The interview, filmed for Tambo's show People of the South , would be aired next Sunday, the newspaper reported. According to The Sunday Independent, the interview included footage of the Mugabe family and interviews with Mugabe's wife Grace at a dairy farm. Tambo filmed the interview in Zimbabwe before Christmas and showed the family the final edit in Harare last weekend.
Africa's sexy tech: Death by innovation? The Cc-Hub, in Lagos, is a hotbed of successful innovation.
But innovation isn't always the answer, says Michelle Atagana. EverClip Automatically Imports Your iOS Clipboard to Evernote. Global NGOs Spend More on Accounting Than Multinationals - Jeri Eckhart Queenan. By Jeri Eckhart Queenan | 12:00 PM April 23, 2013 Benchmark data isn’t sexy stuff, but occasionally the numbers reveal surprising findings.
Who, for instance, would have guessed that global NGOs spend nearly 80% more to track their finances and employ nearly twice as many finance staff as comparable for-profit multinationals? This hardly seems right given that multinationals are thought to be awash in money and NGOs have the image of cash-strapped, waste averse organizations — which they are. But the data, gathered in our new study “Stop Starving Scale” and compared against benchmarks from APQC (American Productivity & Quality Center), hint at a little-known story: most global NGOs today struggle to master the complexities of managing efficient, integrated operations in large part due to restrictions placed on them by funders. As globalization began to shift into high gear in the 1980s, corporations grew by opening international outposts to access new markets.
Solar-powered mobile health centre rolls into Cape Town. Africa: How Mobile Media Is Transforming Africa for Good. Often has the question been asked: Who does technology serve?
Earlier this year, as a member of the judging panel for the first African Open Data Bootcamp in Kenya, I came across a "Sanitation in Schools" app. It was developed after data indicated a worrying dropout trend across Kenya's counties. Data indicated that this was due to the schools' level of poor sanitation. The app is currently being fine-tuned to help track schools with low sanitation levels. Kitely Roll Out New Opensim Asset System. This sounds like a great advancement because inventory is proving somewhat of a problem on OSgrid which is probably down to the huge storage requirement given they have the most registered avatars and regions.
Clearly, Kitely are meeting this problem early on in their development and that is a big plus for using their service. I think more grids could push their databases to cloud and I always thought how useful it would be if a company like Kitely, or even Second Life, offered cloud based inventory data storage to other grids where Kitely or SL could, in effect, shield content from copy thieves since no grid owner using the service would be able to look at the data and change permissions.

AFRICA’S “mobile decade”, when telephones at last reached most corners of the continent, has meant a huge improvement in the lives of the poor.
But quantifying it is hard. How useful can a mobile phone be to someone living on less than $2.50 a day, the World Bank’s standard benchmark of poverty? Researchers in Kenya have given a partial answer. Tech4Africa is the premier mobile, web & emerging technology event in Africa.Tech4Africa. Hurricane Sandy 3 Trees Fall And Fire.
