New laws in Nigeria and Uganda, plus reports throughout the continent of extortion, murder, so-called "curative rape" and abuse of LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and intersex) -- and their allies -- are deeply concerning to many people, in and outside of Africa.
This is all about the people of Africa and how welcoming they are to homosexuality (not very welcoming...) This article I chose to represent the Social aspects of Africa since it portrays how the people stand up for themselves and their beliefs.
The return of Sherlock to BBC One was watched by an average 9.2 million people, overnight figures suggest.
Rainer Emily's insight:
This article goes under social because it talks about the BBC telvision programme Sherlock, which goes under entertainment. It contains information about the large number of viewers in its latest season in comparison to other shows that were airing at that tIme.
Tripoli, 20 September 2013: Libya, Egypt, Chad and Sudan have signed a UN-backed agreement on the shared use of a massive underground aquifer system straddling the four countries known as the Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System.
Recent tsunami research has presented New Zealand with a mixed bag of news. Parts of our coast are exposed to greater tsunami hazard than previously thought, while the hazard in other coastal regions is the same or less. The findings come from a new GNS Science report commissioned by the Ministry for Civil Defence and Emergency Management. It updates a report on New Zealand’s tsunami hazards that we compiled in 2005.
This year’s report incorporates new research and significant changes in scientific understanding since our 2005 report. It focuses on the entire New Zealand coastline rather than just the main population centres. It also uses more advanced modelling to quantify the tsunami hazard. Areas where the hazard is higher are the North Island’s east-facing coasts and the southwest of the South Island. In other coastal regions, the tsunami hazard remains about the same, or has even decreased.
Our recent research and modelling has shown the hazard from near-source tsunami with little travel time is higher than previously estimated. This is particularly the case for tsunami generated by undersea earthquakes off the North Island’s east coast.
From the information I could gather from the link (unfortunately not an article) this list is about sickness in certain countries of Africa. I thought that this could represent the Economy in a way, as it shows how un-resistant they are to disease.
This article talks of the military which is Islamic (apparently, according to the title). I read about what they used to control and stuff. Anyway, since it had Islamic in the title, I felt that it would be able to represent Religion!
Honeybee stocks across Europe are now insufficient to supply more than 90 per cent of the demand for crop pollination, a publication in a science journal has warned.
Rainer Emily's insight:
This article falls under the economic catagory because it concerns Europe's agriculture. The honeybee decline leads to many of the crops in the countries to not get the proper pollination. This kills their crops, not letting them get any money from them because they cannot be sold.
European free movement rules are placing British citizens at risk because foreign police are failing to impose travel bans on dangerous offenders, claim the parents of a man who was brutally killed by a foreign criminal.
"Muslim women from six countries defy western beauty ideals, emphasize spirituality. Organizers of the event said they wanted to show Muslim women there is an alternative to the idea of beauty put forward by the British-run Miss World pageant. They also stress that opposition to the pageant can be expressed non-violently."
