Oil Pirates and the Mystery Ship

Oil Pirates and the Mystery Ship | Chris' Regional Geography |

"Forget Somalia, the world's new epicenter of piracy is on the other side of Africa."


Some experts believe that the uptick in the number and geographical reach of pirate attacks is due in part precisely to the 2009 government amnesty for the Nigerian militants in the Niger Delta who had justified their attacks on oil infrastructure and their widespread theft of crude oil as a political protest. "With the political pretense lost, there is no longer any need for oil thieves to limit themselves to targets in the Delta," a United Nations study said.

Nigeria's dangerous skin whitening obsession

Nigeria's dangerous skin whitening obsession | Chris' Regional Geography |

chris tobin's insight:

This video shows how Africans want to be more westernized.  This is very health hazardous and unnecessary. 


Skin bleaching is not a new practice and is a dangerous practice.  Public education is needed such as been implemented in the past on tanning booths and salons and the dangers of UVA and UVB related skin cancer
