Femi's Basketball Arena: NBA Games To Show Live In Afrca On ... | Africa | Scoop.it
The NBA and South African sports network SuperSport say they have agreed to a "multiyear" deal to show live games in 47 territories in sub-Saharan Africa starting this season. SuperSport's satellite television channels are ...
Min Cho's insight:

So this article is about NBA giving free stream to Africa near Sub-Sahara. They are supporting to Africa, so children can watch and learn and dream about basketball player. This can be advertising for NBA but it can be giving more choice of the dream to the children who have no dream.

This article helps me understand Africa, I can see that people in Africa needs more education about their dreams and NBA is supporting them by giving the free stream. This helps me, Africans are really talented, but they can't use their talents, because they have no supporters and they didn't learn about it.

I think this is really good idea, giving free stream to Africans, so they can enjoy and dream about basketball player.

Kim Jaewook's curator insight, March 3, 2014 8:34 AM

The article is about people killed in the last two months in NIgeria. There are around 40 people killed by attacks of gunmen everyday, but the government of Nigeria continued failure to protect civilians from the attacks.The author wrote that the authorities have a duty to protect people's lives and properties under all circumstances.


This article was helping me to understand how’s life in Nigeria and threaten by the gunmen so that civilians are not safe in their villages. It also informed me that the reactions of Nigerian government are actually not helping the civilians who are in danger.


I think it is the government’s duty to take care of civilians in their country and the gunmen should be eliminated from the country but the government’s correspondences are not beneficial to civilians and also not removing rebels, so the government has to be changed.

Thiti Limphaibool's curator insight, March 4, 2014 6:47 PM

This article talks about unknown Nigerian gunmen killing people, in villages and schools. Amnesty International was alarmed of this, but the government and authorities aren't protecting the civilians and investigating this case properly. Since the beginning of the attacks, over 600 were killed. 

 

This article helps me understand Africa by showing me that some people can shoot a lot of civilians and get away with it, while the government would not do any thing to help or protect the people getting shot. They also would not properly investigate the gunmen.

 

I agree with Amnesty International. The gunmen has to be investigated properly. They have killed too many people. I think a government's job is to protect it's people, but the Nigerian government isn't doing it. The authorities don't even know who they are or their reason for shooting these civilians.

Min Cho's insight:

This article is about one person saying that Africa education must be imrpved to improve Africa. The main of this goal to improve was 1) Early childhood and education.2) Acces to the prime education

3) Education needs adults and young. 4) Adult litercy rate 5) Gender party and last 6) Quality education. This aritcle hepls me understand Africa because I didn't really know that, Africa had really really low education, but after reading this story, I can imgaeg them and want to help them to have good education like what I have now. I think this ariticle is really good, because this story is telling people that, Aficans are trying there best and supporns are trying best to imprve the qulitly of education in Africa.

Min Cho's insight:

This article is about Google and Facebook, giving free WiFi access to Africans. They might need the internet, because everything is in internet. In Africa, most job is farmers, which they have to know about the weather and whats better corps to grow in theses season. Google have a balloon, which they gives all people on earth give free WiFi, if they have the permission to the company. Facebook have the plane called drones. This drones fly around the Africa and give free strong WiFi connecting and giving about the weather and some information. 

 

This article helps me understand Africa, they don't really have good strong WiFi. This make me feel that, around the world wants to help Africa and the big company is helping them.  I can see that, farmers need weather information to have good corps season and when to spreed the seeds. I like how people is helping Africa in many ways.

 

I like this article, because from this article, people can help Africa too. When two company are helping, other company can help in other way, like giving free smart phones so they can check the new and whats happening.

Min Cho's insight:

This article is about 2 people died by mines that can find the gold in Africa. The 2 people in this article died, because the separate accidents since an earthquake triggered an underground fire in a mine shaft early. This article helps me understand Africa is that people work very hard to live and the technology of Africa is bad. I think this article makes people understand better.
