Change and ‘New’ Politics in Zimbabwe | Freedom House

Zimbabweans are showing the evidence of having been torn in all directions in the transitional period. They have been scarred by the party political wars since the Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) from late 2000 onwards first posed an electoral challenge to the Zimbabwe African National Union‐ Patriotic Front (ZANU‐PF). Zimbabweans, as represented in this stratified‐random and nationally representative sample, are not sure it seems on what to believe and how to relate to political and economic circumstances. They veer between praises for economic conditions that have improved and condemnations of the Inclusive Government (IG) when they move to more general‐level assessments. They leap from great anticipation that the next election is the one that will bring more definitive change to their lives to concrete assessments that reveal more of their politically tormented sides. They proclaim that free and fair elections are in the offing, yet express similar levels of fear of electoral violence and intimidation than they had in the past. The 2012 survey results illuminate these complex, nuanced and evolving positions that Zimbabweans hold today.

Robert Hardy Simpkins's curator insight, October 26, 8:56 PM

Tristram Stuart is saying that all of the foods and resources we waste could be used for animal consumption instead of just being waste. I believe that he is on to something. If we began to reuse waste from the foods we eat we could prevent to many wasted products. Stuart should continue trying to spread the word about not throwing away good foods.

Robert Hardy Simpkins's curator insight, October 29, 3:39 PM

I think that it is important that they have found out that there is something that could slow down ebola while we find a permanent cure. If they keep finding information and things that could slow down ebola we could have enough time to stop it before it turns into an epidemic.

Pumpkin Geography

Pumpkin Geography | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

"During the month of October, I take advantage of the pumpkin harvest to bring hands-on geography to my students.  After spending a month becoming familiar with the location of the seven continents and the major bodies of water, each student is given a pumpkin to turn into a globe. Students paint the entire surface of the pumpkin blue to represent water. Next, they use pushpins to position and trace the outline of each continent onto their pumpkins. They use actual globes as models and are careful to place the continents in the correct hemisphere. Then, they paint and label each continent a different color. They label the major bodies of water and use white paint to represent the North and South Poles."

Jacob Crowell's curator insight, October 27, 11:14 AM

This is a great use of connecting education and culture. Carving pumpkins is something that most children connect with this season. I think it is an effective strategy to connect these traditions with education. I think its a great way to put a educational spin on a childhood tradition.

How to manage phones in your school | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

There has been a dramatic rise in mobile devices crossing back and forth between the school gates, and be it smartphones, tablets, notebooks or laptops, whether they are parent-owned or school-owned, there remains a duty of care that schools must practice. Schools have a responsibility to ensure that students’ mobile access to the world is properly managed and protects them from harm.

The Literary United States: A Map of the Best Book for Every State

The Literary United States: A Map of the Best Book for Every State | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

"Two weeks ago, we published a literary map of Brooklyn, highlighting the books we felt best represented the neighborhoods in which they were set. Compiling the list of books for that map had us thinking about what it means for a story to not just be from a place, but also of it, and why it is that some places have an abundance of literary riches (we’re looking at you, American South), while others, well, don’t. There are those stories that so beautifully evoke a time and a place and a way of life that it becomes close to impossible to separate the literary perception of a place from its reality—one winds up informing the other.  All [books on this states list] are literary in voice and spirit; every last one will let you understand a time and place in a more profound way than you maybe thought possible.
