These days, skin care experts and dermatologists alike promote the benefits of natural skin care. It is therefore bogus to claim that the Africans of South Africa arrived in South Africa at the time when the Dutch Settlers landed in the Cape, for a trading station and gathering of Fresh food for their trip around the bottom of South Africa, hugging the East coast all the way to India and China, for spices, cloth and other goods. “In East Africa, the pastoralist expansion was lined to the diffusion of breed of humped zebu cattle. These breeds were known to in Christian Nubia but on the White Niles region and the Horn of Africa they are to be found only after 1200 AD. The condition in which African South African find themselves in a state of both historical and cultural amnesia is because of the affects and effects of Settler wars, … Read the rest

Fashion is a new trend that is commonly used in different areas, but mostly it talks about the latest clothing and accessories trends. Bailey, Robert C., Serge Bahuchet, and Barry S. Hewlett. “Development in the Central African Rainforest: Concern for Forest Peoples.” In K. Cleaver, et al., eds. Conservation of West and Central African Rainforests, 1992. It is so distressing to know that so many companies for the sake of financial gain manufacture products that contain ingredients which can damage your skin. Annoyingly, people go out and buy them. Even some of the so-called natural products contain oil, mineral oil, which is harmful to your skin. These products will never correct the root cause of your skin problem, which is to remove age spots. This is fact. Afro-Brazilians, the descendants of millions of slaves brought primarily from West Africa to Brazil over a three-hundred-year period, are the second major component … Read the rest

Your skin is the largest organ in your body. What sets a face serum apart from ordinary skin moisturizer is that it can penetrate the skin deeply because of the size of its molecules, which is smaller than ordinary moisturizers. This penetrative property of serum formulas can refine wrinkles, clear the skin of toxins and remove black spots. In terms of use, the first one is divided into underclothes and over clothes. At the same time, this type also can be divided into social, daily, professional, sports and performance clothing etc. The second one is classified by the garment material and the craftsmanship, such as Chinese clothing, western clothing, embroidery clothing,, knitwear and so on. Despite South Africa’s progress, much work remains to be done before soccer is truly a sport that bridges the country’s pernicious racial divide.

The popular trend that people are following these days is to wear designer outfits. What does all this mean for and to Africans of South Africa today? It means everything-Where Everything Is Everything We can describe these cultural practices from our cultures in Mzantsi. Use of folktales-I grew up listening to all sorts of folk tales and ghost stories, and from them I carry within me the mores and morals of our communities; As a member of my family, extended and otherwise, I have been involved in and taking part in the sacred rites and practices of our family members; In the community I live in, I have been at, involved in and participated int eh cultural and ceremonial events where the whole community participated. 2004 15 May, South Africa is awarded the right to host the 2010 FIFA World Cup.Kaizer Chiefs crowned PSL champions for the first time.

Designer clothing and designer jeans are manufactured by high-end fashion designers, high-street stores and independent designer boutiques. Africa’s independence struggle has returned some measure of autonomy to African hands. But the winning of that autonomy left still unaccomplished is africa’s total liberation from western political, economic and cultural hegemony. It still leaves unattempted the construction of a revitalized African society. Our task today, if we wish to protect Africa from new and more deadly imperialisms, is clearly to make her a first-rate power of the kind demanded by the particular world in which that power must be won and exercised. This is important because while literature always communicates universal human qualities or illuminate archetypes, they differ slightly from one geography to another (Ipcizade, Lecture Notes, 2013). Thus, coming from differing geographies, each expression of a single human archetype will always be a little different. This is really important because while … Read the rest

T – Shirts that are made for men should be worn to enhance your body size in order for you to look like a large build man and not a boy. The team won promotion to Division One of the JBFA at the end of 1944. To gain promotion, Pirates, as winners of the Saturday League, had to beat their opposite number in the Sunday League- the champions of the elite division. This team was African Morning Stars, a strong, predominantly coloured side from Sophia town. Morning Stars included in their team member of the notorious ‘American’ gang. The match played at Wemmer, is remembered as a brutal goalless draw. Pirates won the replay 2-1. After the game the young players were attacked and beaten. Pirates lodged a complaint with the League but nothing came of it. JBFA officials lived in New Clare and Sophia town at the time and … Read the rest

With the current trend being to a lot of unisex clothing styles what we wear on our feet is sure to come to question. Perhaps it did not really matter who was coach, be it Buthelezi or the mysterious Mr Sanderson. The team did not care they were so hot that they coached themselves. They were hot, but the derby against Chiefs on July was a rather serious affair. With 10 minutes to go, the match was still goalless. Then Blessing Mgidi struck twice to seal a 2-0 win that ensured Pirates remained at the top of the table, just in time to welcome a UK Stars XI to Orlando Stadium. The tourists beat the SA Black XI 3-2 but the UK Stars’ coach Malcolm Allison admired Percy Moloi’s great talent. Moloi scored the next weekend too, from the penalty spot- but Pirates lost 2-1 to Pretoria Bantu Callies. Another … Read the rest

Fashion is a new trend that is commonly used in different areas, but mostly it talks about the latest clothing and accessories trends. Men may like the idea of donning on male tights. But the admission about it can be done in a reserved manner. This is because they are worried on how their ladies will react to the fact that they also likes to use the same kind of leg wear that their ladies may be using. The way ladies can think about men wearing tights is due to how the society has conceptualized the right and wrong criteria of clothing choices. Which is why men would pick out their decision based on the three options: They can choose to keep it even to their girl; they share it to them in secret or they throw cushion to wind and not be bothered about it. America was now the … Read the rest

At the mention of “mens underwear” most people picture white briefs, old-fashioned long-johns, or perhaps some boxers with a fun pattern on them. Kin Groups. When Brazilians speak of “family” they usually mean a large extended kin group rather than the immediate family of spouse and children. This large kin group, the parentela , consists of all maternal and paternal relatives, along with in-laws. The parentela is at the core of social life and in time of need ideally provides assistance to its members. Such support can also be obtained through ritual kinship ( compadrio ) in which parents select additional allies and protectors as godparents for their children. Some claim that the multiple functions of these extended kinship networks has inhibited the development of extrafamilial organizations in Brazil, such as parent-teacher associations and garden and civic clubs. To Marxists, power implies oppression and therefore, should be overthrown in the … Read the rest

It is rare to meet people who will tell you that they do not care about their good looks. The Sharpeville Massacre was one of the most important turning points in the history of South Africa. It triggered a chain of events, from the banning of liberation organizations, the launch of the armed struggle, the internationalization of the South Africa’s Apartheid policies and the growing division between black and white South Africans. “In fact, in the traditional African culture, there is no such things as two friends. Conversation groups were more or less naturally determined by age and division of labor. Thus one would find all boys whose job was to look after cattle periodically meeting at popular spots to engage in conversation about their cattle, girlfriends, parents, heroes, etc. The emergence and growth of sites and service schemes marked the end of squatter movements. By 1947 squatter movements had … Read the rest
