Nelson Mandela 70th Birthday Tribute First of two Mandela events The Birthday Tribute was regarded by many, including the Anti-Apartheid Movement and the African National Congress, as raising worldwide consciousness of the imprisonment of ANC leader Mandela and others by the South African apartheid government and forcing the regime to release Nelson Mandela earlier than would otherwise have happened. Eighteen months after the event, with a release now thought to be approaching, Mandela asked for the organisers of the event to create a second concert as an official international reception at which, after 27 years in prison, he would address the world. The second event, Nelson Mandela: An International Tribute for a Free South Africa, was, like the first, conceived to be shown on television across the world and was broadcast from Wembley Stadium to more than 60 countries on April 16, 1990. The organiser and risk-funder of the two events was producer and impresario Tony Hollingsworth. Starting point
Read the most important speech Nelson Mandela ever gave A display at the Cape Town Honours Nelson Mandela exhibition at the Cape Town Civic Centre. (Michelly Rall/Getty Images) Nelson Mandela was already 45 years old when, on April 20, 1964, he gave the defining speech of the anti-Apartheid movement, from the dock of a Pretoria courtroom.Mandela had been in prison for two years already, for inciting workers to strike, when he was put on the stand again as part of the Rivonia Trials. Named for the Johannesburg suburb where South African police had arrested 19 ANC leaders, the trials were meant to be a blow against the group. But Mandela, charged with three counts of sabotage, seized the moment to speak directly to South Africa and the world.What began as a statement by an accused prison became, over the 29 minutes it took Mandela to deliver it, his best known and most important speech.
Watch this delightful video of an 81-year-old Nelson Mandela dancing on stage There were many sides to Nelson Mandela, the South African anti-Apartheid leader and president who died today at age 95. The fun, sometimes-goofy side of Mandela was not his most important, but it was one small part of what him so beloved. Few habits showed that side better than Mandela's love of dancing in public – a disarming, remarkably unselfconscious act for a statesman of his stature and for someone who had faced such grave challenges and dangers in his life. It's difficult to imagine any other figure who commanded such respect and yet could be so humble. This video, taken when Mandela was a surprisingly spritely 81 years old, shows Mandela dancing freely beginning at the 2:45 mark. This is from a 1999 concert by the British-born South African musician Johnny Clegg, singing his 1986 song "Asimbonanga" calling for Mandela to be released from prison.

Chemical Weapons Stockpile and Destruction Sites Map and Photos The following map and photos depict the locations of what remains of the U.S. chemical weapons stockpile and the facilities being constructed to complete the destruction of remaining chemical agents. According to a press release from the Department of Defense’s Assembled Chemical Weapons Alternatives program office, the U.S. had destroyed “nearly 90 percent of the chemical weapons stockpile” in advance of the extended Chemical Weapons Convention deadline of April 29, 2012. Though chemical weapons were originally stored at eight continental U.S. Army military installations, only two facilities remain active. One site is located at the Blue Grass Army Depot in Richmond, Kentucky and the other is at the Pueblo Chemical Depot just north of Avondale, Colorado. The current stockpile includes projectiles, cartridges, and rockets.

Healthy Soil Microbes, Healthy People - Mike Amaranthus & Bruce Allyn The microbial community in the ground is as important as the one in our guts. A small pine tree grown in a glass box reveals the level of white, finely branched mycorrhizal threads or "mycelium" that attach to roots and feed the plant. (David Read) We have been hearing a lot recently about a revolution in the way we think about human health -- how it is inextricably linked to the health of microbes in our gut, mouth, nasal passages, and other "habitats" in and on us.
