People are becoming very conscious about their skin. 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.

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.
Concerning the matter on Wole Soyinka, in a recent letter to the Editor of The Times Literary Supplement , Chinweizu has effectively put that charge to waste, even winning the accent of a later English contributor. Concerning the matter in relation to Diop, Fage has been unable to dislodge the historical finds of Cheikh Anta Diop, precisely because they are irrefutable scientific findings. One thing is absolutely certain, and that is, contemporary European liberal historiography on Africa, at least large portions of it, is merely a continuation, though subtle and hidden, of imperial colonial historiography on Africa. This point needs to be paid attention to. We see a culture that is diverse and colorful, not a tribalized backward peoples. We have the same cultural or whatever practices, same language(Some of these were worked on some of my blogs now), the music, dances, traditional dresses and music is the same, even if it were to be categorized into several genres. It is one music, of one culture, and One nation of Africans of South Africa. For most celebrities, the thought of forgoing makeup on national TV, a magazine cover, or a red carpet would quite possibly be their biggest nightmare ever. But for Alicia Keys , that’s normal life these days. Since last May, the R&B; superstar has embraced the #nomakeup movement, making everyone drool over just how dang pretty her bare face is. While good genes play a part, Keys has clearly nailed her skin-care game. Aside from acting as a natural skincare agent, Essential Fatty Acids, like omega-3 and omega-6, are also beneficial for cardiovascular health, relieving pain as well as providing nutrients to unborn babies in the mother’s womb. Even if you’ve been shaving more than half your life, it isn’t totally foolproof. In fact, there are a lot of mistakes you might be making in this part of your body care routine. (Check out the 8 Shaving Mistakes You Could Be Makingâ€”and What to Do Instead) To shave the right way , start by spending a little time in the shower. The water will help to soften your skin and ready it for your razor. Once it’s time to reach for the razor, take it slow. Apply shaving cream to your skin and carefully move the razor with the grain instead of going against it. This is why you must be very careful when it comes to selecting the right kind of moisturizer. Choose a moisturizer that is all-natural. Also, you can place filters into your shower heads and water faucets. These filters will help to keep that harmful chlorine from penetrating your skin.
(1) All South Africans are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They showed some Negro(African) Features, but far fewer than the skeletons of Bantu-speaking inhabitants of Rhodesia(Zimbabwe) and South Africa(Mzantsi) today. How to reconcile these conflicting judgements? It was rather as though the skeletons of William the Conqueror and his Norman Knights had been taken from their tombs, and found to be skeletons of people of Saxon stock (Davidson) Preposterous, and that is what the falsification of African origins and history had amounted to). Unlike Central and West Africa, communal music in the South of the African continent, was basically vocal, without drumming or other instrumental accompaniment, though solo performance often invoked dancing or gesture or work movements by the singers themselves. There were at least two voice parts in antiphonal, leader-and-chorus relationship to each other, and the parts frequently overlapped, producing polyphony. An essential feature was that the two basic parts never entered or ended simultaneously. If Biko “Wrote What He Likes”, and now given todays Technological Society and the Nature of the Web and Human Communication What It Is Today, as a Human being first, “I Write And Post What I Like, And I Like What I Post and Write”” and do not subscribe to being straight-jacketed nor told what to say and how to say it, and I am secondly an African. I believe that every “Human” being has the capacity to know what’s right from wrong, and rapacious when it comes to issue of controlling others and grabbing the oppressed people’s natural resources and labor. We must understand that it is in the nature of this racist culture to hide its political agenda. Therefore, it presents so-called facts and information as if they have no political connection or implications. Let us mediate on these issues and I think we’ll come to realize that there is a direct relationship between history and economics, political and social development. When concerned with men’s T- Shirts, I have found that the look that works best is the fitted T-Shirt. The fitted T- Shirt for men is worn by many alpha male type personas. The fitted t shirt is made to enhance your body’s appearance. The fitted T – Shirt is made slightly tighter around the arms in order for your arms to fit the t shirt. By fitting the t shirt it appears that your arms are much bigger then they appear. When compared to normal T-Shirts, the arms are baggy and do not give off the same effect as wearing a fitted T-Shirt.
I have just posted the Dramatical act of Iphi’ Ntombi above. If the reader gets to watch the whole show, they will be rewarded and will also see what I mean when I say we have a very powerful and vibrant culture If we are to be told that we are backward, then I would rather spend the rest of my life in culture as projected and shown-off by the cast of Iphi’ Ntombi. the captured our cultural essence and being. The incorporated all the many traditional, cultural, customary, musical, traditional dress, and dances into one explosive extravaganza for the world to see. Leadership and Political Officials. Brazil’s return to free elections in the mid-1980s after two decades of military dictatorship has not resulted in greater social and legal equity, and unequal treatment of rich and poor is ongoing. Government officials and well-to-do individuals who have committed crimes still are more likely to escape the long arm of the law than are those of lesser social status. In part, this is because Brazil is a country in which laws and regulations are passed, yet a significant proportion of them are ignored. Still, today there is growing intolerance of political corruption and a host of official inquiries are evidence that Brazilians are starting to reject impunity and demand accountability of their public officials.

Many people around the world, and if one were to read the comments on the YouTube Videos posted, are very much in-love with African traditional culture, and this can be discerned from their comments on these YouTube videos. It is a culture that has its own identity, style, energy and uniqueness, and is distinctly African South African. It really presents a human face to dance and music. A good pair of quality boat shoes will be flexible and comfortable and fit snugly. Your foot should not slide side to side or forward and back, and your toes should never feel cramped in the toe. The feature that sets topsiders apart from a regular shoe is the sole. Deck shoe soles display a very tight ripple designed to squeeze out the water from the sole and provide strong grip on a wet deck. Many women’s boat shoes and some men’s shoes have laces but they are low cut at the front and sides so that they can be slipped off and on easily. Bantu adds: “We must reject, as we have been doing, the individualistic approach to life that is the cornerstone of the Anglo-Boer culture. We must seek to restore the Black man the great importance we used to give to human relations, the high regard for people and heir property and for life in general; to reduce the triumph of technology over man and the materialistic elements that is slowly creeping into our society.” What Bantu predicted and foresaw is what is taking place in contemporary South Africa today. We stopped learning and studying, concretely knowing, practicing, developing and living cultural selves as the totality of all these things, we essentially have become European, here in Mzantsi. We think being European-likely sets us apart from our communities, African continent and the Diaspora. We think that makes us unique and different. We boast to one another about western cultural artifacts and wealth accumulation thinking that imbibing this makes us better than our poor and down-trodden lot in the townships and ramshackle dwellings that is their domiciles-and the rest of Africa.
