When it comes to having beautiful skin, it does not have to cost you a fortune in order to purchase all of those chemicals to treat it. There are many different beauty products that you can purchase for your skin, but those skin products are not all natural. Alternatively, if your face cannot stand water and soap, try a mild cleanser making sure it is free from harmful properties. When you wash your body do so as gently as you clean your face. Avoid using harsh soaps or anything that has acidic ingredients. Jewelry isn’t limited to women anymore; nowadays we can see men wearing jewelry as often as we see women. Aside from complimenting wardrobe, most men wear jewelry as symbol of the wealth, position, personality and community. Most retailers now have separated the jewelry departments for men and women. One of the most important tips that are essential to look beautiful & glamorous is to have a balanced diet that is best suited to your body type. For instance, some people gain weight due to high carb diet, so they must avoid carbohydrates. The oily foods can damage the skin so you must avoid them. Further high salt diet can damage the glow of the skin. The Hollywood actors & actresses usually follow the diet plan prescribed by their dietitians or personal trainers. No one who underwent the Grind of Grand Apartheid does not know that Africans in South Africa as a people have undergone all what Cabral so clearly states. What went on for the Africans is that they know what happened to their struggle, It is the duty of ALL South Africans to put san end to all injustices, miseries and suffering- If other ethnic groups are not willing to participate in clearing all wrongs under the umbrella of African ‘Ubuntu’, there is no reason why Africans should not do it for themselves. As a people we must put guarantees for the children born in our land today and tomorrow a certainty that no barrier or wall should be put in their way; As African people of South Africa, we must see to it that they go forward according to their capacities; Our children must no be encouraged to envy other peoples cultures morals and mores at the expense of their own homegrown culture, customs, traditions, languages, rites and practices. Africans in South Africa must and have to constantly improve the lot of their people and land, and this must serve the interests of the Africans in South Africa; and once these are secured, known, owned, controlled and disseminated by African’s, as they see fit. The Struggle for Africans of South Africa today is how can they create a cohesive African collective to begin to fix the governance of their lot according to their will. Debate now centers on how to revive the same broad participation in a new era. That elite soccer is now largely confined to black townships needs to change, says Ephraim “Shakes” Mashaba, who is South Africa’s newly appointed “Under 23” head coach and also a former apartheid-era soccer star. “What we have to deal with is a question of attitudes. It’s time to open the doors,” he says.
“We must study our African indigenous traditions in order to understand and to evaluate our cultural, situation now. Many of us remain African at a deep structural level. A study of our traditions will reveal that they rival any tradition past or present, and that we have valid options for world view, values and practices, which are suitable for us today, with appropriate modification. Thus in South Africa now it is very expensive to be poor. It is the poor people who stay further from town and therefore have to spend more money on transport to come to work for the White people; it is the poor people who use uneconomic and inconvenient fuel like Parafin and coal because of the refusal of the White man to install electricity in Black areas(Today they use paraffin because it is now sold and those who cannot afford it use the fuel to cook and warm up. The Apartheid goons did a good job of destroying so much information when the ANC was taking over, that I have begun my own way of gathering all types of images about Africans here in Mzantsiâ€¦ I have, as I stated early, begun collating cultural photos. I have not yet gotten to the fashionistas of Mzantsi, as yet. The images of the greats you talk about from Frederick Douglas to everybody in-between, is the same here. I once talked about Mpanza, and if you check out his photo, even riding his horse, he was immaculately dressed. So that, what I am saying to you is that, we, under Apartheid suffered a distorted, disfigured and ugly image about ourselves bandied by the White intelligentsia. 1974 A Whites-only team defeats a Blacks-only team (2-0) in the Embassy Multinational Series at the Rand Stadium.3 June, Mr. Norman Middleton, president of the South African Soccer Federation, is refused a passport to attend a meeting of the International Football Federation (FINA) in Frankfurt on 11 June. He had refused to give an undertaking to the Minister of the Interior that he would do nothing to harm South African sport at the Frankfurt meeting. He said he considered the issue of a conditional passport to be blackmail.â€14 October, The Minister of Sport, Dr. Piet Koornhof, says in the House of Assembly that the Government’s aim is to move away from discrimination in sport, disclosing that a champion of championsâ€ soccer tournament would be held, probably in February: White and non-White clubs could take partâ€. Further, he invites the major cricketing bodies for round table talks on their problems. He confirms that a Black boxer would meet a White boxer for the South African championship. Under specific questioning, he replied that the Coloured Proteas could play against the Rugby Springboks any time.6 November, The executive committee of the International Football Federation (FIFA) rejects an Ethiopian proposal to expel South Africa. It decides that the matter can be dealt with only at the next congress, during the Olympic Games in Montreal,in 1976. South Africa remains suspended, meaning that foreign players, not teams, can still be imported to South Africa. FIFA decides to send a delegation to South Africa early in 1975 to investigate conditions.
And I concluded the whole exercise by writing this updated article below. In keeping with the spirit of upgrading and uplifting our African milieu and , I have decided to Post this updated version with a unique take about the Africans and their Cultures, music and traditional clothing worn by Africans to in performing their culture, dances and the African languages they sing in. I hope this strikes a certain cord with many Africans and other people, and maybe that that will help inform and empower them about themselves and their cultures, too. Politics is important, but without culture it is barren, fake and a fiction. We have seen, as we grew up what role culture has played in some of our lives. Although we are aghast with the present behaviors of our children, and the way our communities are under siege from many sides, we can also, and should, by the way, be able to talk, at least, about our culture, extol its virtues and vices, and at the same time design it to suit the present Africa-centered-way of they way we live, in a myriad places and in various ways. It is one culture made up of 9(nine) peoples of South Africa, and we should make that count for what it is worth. As I have said at the beginning of the previous Hub that I have been meaning to write this article for years now, and I am now going much deeper into how this culture is re-morphing as part of the cultural renaissance as Africans of South Africa faced with a dysfunctional existence, history, customs, culture, tradition and languages, will be addressed and looked at anew and in an in-depth manner within this present narrative. The right that govern the speech and act through guaranteed international declarations have their roots in the traditions of African societies. Therefore, African traditional values become an important point of departure. The values embedded in a given tradition also form the basis for some form of “knowledge” about how one goes about fulfilling his rights in society. theis “Knowledge” has been referred to by to by some as “traditional” knowledge or “indigenous” knowledge. I interact with Africans from all levels political leaders, professors and a common AFRICAN in the street, you name it. Answers to Africa’s woes are in within so does a statement from one of my African intellects who said in kiSwahili: “~Nakk Pexe, Pexe la!”. You may quote from all African greats, African Historians in the understanding we are not aware of those quotes. Rethink my brother, Africans need ideal action to meeting today’s challenges.
“One of the greatest obstacles to African people’s clear vision and health growth as a people is the lack of unity. Africans were tortured and killed for practicing traditional religion, speaking traditional languages, using African names, and more. By the time africans had gained a semblance of freedom to reclaim traditional practices, anti-African propaganda machines had already succeeded in enforcing a mental disengagement between Africans and anything African. The lingering result has been metal and social confusion, which has prevented Africans from being themselves. The result has also been that Africans are unable to unite and work to achieve true freedom. This lack of unity is in direction rejection of indigenous African principles which promote a strong sense of communityunity, interdependence and togetherness. South African art holds a unique position when addressing â€˜identity,’ as a result of its racially divided past, and international developments reflect on the way in which they affect our local situation. Besides these general recommendations the key to Outer Beauty is to understand the difference in skin types so you can gain the maximum benefit from your individualized skin care regimen. MAV identifies three different skin types based on which of the three main metabolic principles (doshas)- present in everyone, but to different degrees- is most dominant in your body. On top of the anti wrinkle creams, moisturizers, and other cosmetics that are available in the market, there are also various techniques offered by beauty spas and health clinics, ranging from botox injections to expensive face lifts and laser peeling. These anti aging methods are not only expensive, but they are also quite painful and the effects are not really instant, like some clinics advertise. Some patients have also suffered from a skin tightening or face lift procedure gone wrong. 4. We are not raising our own children. We have no systematic socialization structures for the masses of our children. They are raising themselves or they are being raised by others. We have forfeited one of the most vital functions of a people, the responsibility for intergenerational cultural transmission. So that, when we look much closely at these shenanigans of the oppressors of Africans, their goal was and is still to encourage all Africans, to resist everything and anything Africa, and effort was made to dissuade Africans never to speak out about Imperialism of Europe, Europe and other parts Oppressive world, against Africans globally.
With the ANC, unlike Apartheid, they have managed to rule now for half the time Apartheid ruled, and they have really bungled this opportunity. When it comes to matters of culture, ANC has been more dangerous, because they changed names of places and national events that were as a result of the sacrifice of many unknown Africans, they flaunt culture when it is politically expedient to do so. They opportunistically fill their ranks in government and their parastatals with ignoramuses badly or unqualified for many high and sensitive positions. Even today as of the writing of this Hub, there is still a semblance of sharing and dealing with each other as human beings first and sharing whatever we can scrap-up with our family, society and strangers! The term, “Ubuntu” is now hawked, peddled and drained, emptied of its content, context, cultural meaning, and of its content and bandied on the Web for whatever purpose that has nothing to do with the Africans in South Africa. I had taken my friend Tembeka to see the collection exhibited at the Ann Bryant Art Gallery, East London, South Africa. It was a warm sunny afternoon; East London is blessed with such lovely days. The gallery boasts one of the best collections in Arts in South Africa. This has been possible due to the avid interest in collecting the best of arts from early eighteenth century to the modern times by its late owner Ann Bryant. However, it was done slowly so that on the way out the door, their fathers wouldn’t stop them to ask what the hell they were wearing and make them go back up to their room to change. This trad style slowly trickled into ivy league style which became even more brazen, followed by the prep style movement which got rid of the suit as a casual outfit entirely. The best creams that i have used are the ones that are made with natural ingredients like avocado extract, jojoba oil, manuka honey, grape seed oil, vitamin c, water and others. But there are also some potent natural compounds like cynergytk, CoenzymeQ10 and Wakame kelp that can do wonders for your skin. 1. In this way you can get the best fashion styles which are created by various expert fashion technologists. It assures you of deriving a desired level of profit percentage. Two or three times a week, exfoliate your body by adding a sugar scrub into your shower routine and gently massaging the scrub onto your skin. Be sure to focus on your elbows, knees, and heels, which are more likely to have rough patches that need extra exfoliation. However, and bare with me here, what caught my eye was the core ingredient that goes into the Meaningful Beauty skin care range. Apparently in a specific region of France there grows a certain type of melon, yes you read that right. Now this melon is no ordinary melon and apart from tasting great, sorry couldn’t resist that, exhibits the rare ability to absorb less free radicals.
