Africa is really rich in energy resources but very poor in energy supply. Even though energy use in Africa has increased by 45 percent between 2000 - 2012, 600 million people in Africa are still energy poor, meaning they don't have access to energy and some even cooks with fuel-wood and other biomass sources. Since Africa has potential because their energy resources are tremendous, UN decides to help Africa establish clean energy such as hydroelectricity and solar energy.
I feel really sad for people who doesn't have electricity at their homes, I cannot imagine living after the sun sets. I wouldn't be able to do homework or watch TV. I think this important because I think that Africa has the least energy but has the most potential, 30 percent of oil is imported from Africa. It is important to class because people aren't able to cook or study without electricity, and having electricity will somewhat help Africa have a more stable economic.
This article describes how the 'Big Tuskers' elephants are being hunted by the ivory poachers. The big tuskers elephants are so close to extinction that there are as few as 25 of them left in the world. The poacher have shot the elephant with a poison arrow, sadly the elephant died before receiving a treatment from the Kenyan Wildlife Service. The carcass was retrieved before the ivory could be extracted.
This article relates to the videos we watched in class about the all female anti-poaching team, the Black Mambas. These elephants are one of Kenyan's symbol and national treasure. Unfortunately the poachers were able to get away this time. The poachers were hunting the species which were down to 25, thinking about that made me feel guarded about the world because some humans are disgusting enough to not know the limits of the boundaries that they can step on.
This Article is about enforcing new rules to deal with illegal fishing, since in coastal cities in Africa heavily fishes in this manner. This article helps me connect to Africa because a few months ago I saw the warning from EU that if Thailand do not deal with illegal fishing, they would not import sea foods from Thailand. This reminds me that every country has one foot in mud and other on a clean ground, showing that there are two sides of a country. Acting against illegal fishing also ruins the business that are not licensed, which can take jobs from the employees and their income. I feel that the rules should be enforced to a certain extent, but never all the way.
In Africa, there is the rising demands in planes. African countries are currently wanting to expand their routes and hoping that it would help the economy. In order to meet the aircraft demands, Boeing opens up two offices in Johannesburg, South Africa, and Nairobi, Kenya.The two offices will help subside the situation in Africa, tending to the estimated 1,150 aircraft needed by 2035.
This helps me understand Africa because allowing Boeing to open offices means that they are willing to accept other's help in order to make their countries better. I think that is beautiful because it connects us together, and making the countries that weren't connected now connected.
African grey parrot are known for being quick learners and cunning. They are really popular as pets, which has been why their population has been going down in recent year. In Ghana the population of the grey parrot has been going down by about 99 percent. The population of gray parrots are now endangered due to trading.
I can understand Africa from reading this article because we watched a video about anti poaching team in class. This makes me understand how a species of animals go extinct. I have once thought why animals are driven to the edge of extinction, because a few years ago I never thought the do-do bird would be so wildly targeted. I realized how much power human had against these animals, it seems really weird thinking about these problems seriously because I never thought an animals will go extinct or oil running out while I'm alive. In this article I thought that it was wrong to drive a species towards extinction, because when I was a child I did really want to see a do-do, and I do not want the generations born after me feeling the same way.
Farmers from Gujarat have a bright chance to explore money-spinning farming opportunities being offered by African countries.
Ahead of the five-day international trade show to be held in Rajkot, several participating African countries have already made an offer of 90,000 hectares land on a longterm lease to agriculturists from Gujarat.
As many as 500 delegates, including ministerial groups, from 30 African nations are expected to participate in the trade show beginning February 11 organized by the Saurashtra Vepar Udhyog Mahamandal (SVUM), the apex body of industries of Saurashtra and Kutch.
This article is about farmers receiving business opportunity from African countries. This helps me understand Africa more because they are developing countries and requires resource, land, food to keep the country growing. Lending out 90,000 hectares of land can be a huge opportunity for growing food, cash crops. I can also see that Africa is willing to take a huge step in order for their country to move forward. I think that it's nice to give farmers business opportunity, it is something I don't see everyday. In a job as unrewarding as farming, I am happy to see that people are being even rewarded a little is abit heartwarming.
