Fears Of Asian Economic Slowdown, US Debt Default Hit APEC Summit By Joseph Santolan

A sense of economic crisis and geopolitical tension pervades the proceedings of the summit. A dismal World Bank report released on Monday highlighted the region’s economic slowdown. Moreover, the current standoff over the US government shutdown threatens to escalate into a US government default on its debt, if the impasse is not resolved prior to the October 17 deadline for lifting the US debt ceiling.

allAfrica.com: Rwanda: How Colonialism Has Deemed African Languages Unworthy

allAfrica.com: Rwanda: How Colonialism Has Deemed African Languages Unworthy | world issues | Scoop.it

Book: Decolonising the Mind: The Politics of Language in African Literature

Author: Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o

Available at: Kigali Public Library

In this book, Thiong'o explains how colonialism has deemed African languages unworthy of use - both by the colonisers and the colonised.

He explains how a "cultural bomb" was dropped on Africa so the minds (and consequently the resources) of Africans were controlled. "Make them hate themselves," as the mission goes.

This was seen in the schools where European languages were idolized, the streets where African languages became synonymous with the language of the peasantry, and at the prison cells were those African writers who choose to stay true to their mother tongue were held.

Most people think the more people like them who are around them, the better. The absolute best teams I've built are those with the widest diversity. Yes, it takes a little longer, and there are challenges with such diversity of thought, but the wide variety of backgrounds and experiences is second to none if you want high performing teams.
