The style which is commonly practiced in clothing and accessories become the fashion. For the best fitting shoes, go to sneaker and dress shoe specialty stores. But for the best deals, department stores, wholesalers and outlet malls are always your best bets. Clearance sales are also very helpful in relation to saving money on a pair. Shoes that are on sale are usually outdated by a season or two. But think about it: when you actually get on the streets, who will notice? This is actually an advantage that men have over women. Men can actually recycle their shoes and still be in season. As long as they are clean, with the right outfit and attitude, you can easily wear designer shoes that were the in thing two seasons ago. A guy is more likely to find a pair of sweats and an older t-shirt when he’s trying to fit in a quick workout. Depending on his job, a gentleman may wear dress pants, a dress shirt, and a tie or even a suit to work. Those with more casual work environments might wear blue jeans, khakis, and polo shirts or casual sweaters. This massage oil from La Copine was specifically designed with the delicate skin of the breasts in mind. Make a point to apply its combination of calendula, jojoba, and sesame oils daily, and you’ll never forget to do your monthly lump check again. Breast health for the win. Preventing breakouts on oily skin can be possible by following a few oily skin care tips. First, washing your face at least twice a day can help to prevent breakouts by preventing pores from getting clogged. Pay close attention to only wash a few times a day because excess washing may only deplete the skin of natural oils that your skin products. It may take a while before you find the right product that will work with your skin type but once you find something that is right be sure to stick with it. Oily skin may also react with certain types of sunblock and moisturizers so when shopping for types of products read the label and be sure they are oil free and won’t clog your pores. Buying a shoe may not be that tough but finding one that fits is. You need to spend sometime in a shop to spot a right shoe for you from the hundreds of different shoes from the showcase. Women always pay attention on men’s shoes so you need to get one that looks clean and easy to wash. (20) Its continuation takes different and complex forms, but its origins in him is incontrovertible. It has been Africa’s great fortune to have had two great historians in Joseph Ki- Zerbo and Cheikh Anta Diop. Whereas the former’s incomparable contribution is in broaching the complex methodological issues and problems in African history, the latter’s unsurpassable contribution has been in demystifying a contentious zone of African history by giving it to the African peoples.

On the other hand common creams use chemical ingredients and synthetic substances that are not healthy for your skin like parabens, petrolatum, alcohol, fragrances and mineral oil. We acquire power if we know something and or everything about our cultures, etc. When we begin to learn and have a sense and more concrete knowledge about our culture, by looking it as it in it its whole wholesomeness(Holistically), we begin to understand, see and recognize, and observe more similarities in dancing styles, hand-clapping, voicing, circle-formations, and half moon patterns crisscrossing lines, snake-like, and choreographic back and forth movements in-sync and patterned precisely, with a flurry and changing shapes, and forms on and of their same bright and energetic colors, Polyrhythmic syncopated sounds, explosiveness, and rhythm of all the 11(eleven) African people as one unified and diverse, variegated and one common national entity. Bantu Biko knew that our culture was a ‘conscious culture,’ and that, if it was to be in the orb of Technologies and machines, it might spinout of control. So far, we have learned the other way round. We forgot all about culture and dove head-first into the emerging and merging technologies. What then happened is that, our culture was and is still well-suited for the present technology, but we, whose culture it is, do not know or have forgotten a lot about our own cultures, traditions, custom, history, music traditional dress, music, and dances. I am extending this discourse in this part of the Hub, for if you read the first Hub, “South African Culture, Customs and Practices writ-large: Re-Morphed Cultural Renaissance against Dysfunctional Existence”, the reader will notice that in it when I was giviing the narrative of a culture as it was told by those who live it; I used, in most cases, words, and sentences, where possible, of the African peoples of South Africa to give the texture, the color, the taste, the audio and the pronunciation along with accents, deflections, inflections and meaning as to how and why these words were used by them and are still being used and is the lingua franca of Africans in South africa, and in the process be creating a much more meaningful and deeper understanding about the culture of the 10(ten) peoples: (Africans of Mzantsi- African South Africans). How to get that power to the people is a matter of tactics and strategies- No one has the right to tell the masses what and how to think; what and how to write down ideas- there should be a free flowing of ideas and the ideals of free speech should be maintained and practiced, literary. In the flow of information and its dissemination, we need to the very clear about why and how we are going to do that. People are not stupid, they are the most innovative, intelligent and, along with them, I dislike tyrants, people who know it all, and those who cite thought, action and lifestyle of other people to the masses-avoiding all about the masses and their historical information and material culture.

Our way of life is just as good as any, and will not sound culturally chauvinistic about the issue, but we are a viable and live culture that is just as powerful as any, and full of many things as anyone on the planet earth, and that really should tweak something in many of us. By this I mean, opening ourselves to the world, in all aspects and facets, rather that closing in ranks-akin to the ‘laager’ mindset is what I think is more dovetailing with the New Times we live in-wherein we explore new and revolutionary ideas of Nation building and collective upgrading of African National Consciousness techniques and tactics. We are oppressed because we are Black(African, to be more precise- my addition). It does not need to be said that it is the Black people who are poor. Black people are not oppressed as Zulus, Xhosas, Pedis, Tswanas, Coloreds or Indians(as apartheid would have liked the world to believe that Africans are all different as they comprise Ten(10) peoples). Africans must use that very concept to unite themselves and to respond as a cohesive group. Africans must cling to each other with a tenacity that will shock the perpetrators of evil. In spite of, or perhaps because of, all of these crazy beliefs, Korea actually is an amazing country, that you should visit if you ever get the opportunity. The people are warm and friendly, and will go out of their way to make sure that you have an amazing time and a pleasant stay. Just don’t be surprised if they remind you to open your window when you sleep, or ask you what your blood type is within minutes of making your acquaintance. Most of the styles of bracelets or necklaces that men use are casual looking and inexpensive. Rubber bands are popular among the teenagers while the older, classier businessmen would prefer silver bands or silver chain link bracelets to be hidden behind the cuff of suit jacket to give a more elegant look. JOHANNESBURG—Jomo Sono, known as the Black Prince of South African soccer, was part of a generation of stars whose skin color barred them from playing for their national team. In 1977, he left his apartheid-riven country to play with the likes of Pelé of Brazil and Germany’s Franz Beckenbauer on the New York Cosmos. Emergence of the Nation. Before colonization, Cameroon was a territory of diverse climatic zones populated by a variety of peoples and polities. The Muslim states in the north traded with trans-Saharan merchants and Arabic peoples. The coastal peoples in the south traded with Portuguese and Dutch seafarers beginning in the late fifteenth century. In 1884, Cameroon became a German protectorate (Kamerun). The Germans were defeated by British and French forces in 1916, and the territory was divided between those nations in 1916. In 1922, the French and British zones became League of Nations mandates, with the French controlling over 80 percent of the national territory. Those zones were transformed into United Nations Trusteeships in 1946. The frontier between the French and British zones cut through the territories of several ethnic groups, particularly the Bamiléké and Grassfields peoples of the western highlands. This later served as an impetus for the reunification of those zones at the time of independence. French Cameroon (Cameroun) became independent in 1960, and after a plebiscite in 1961, British Cameroon gained independence. The southern part of the British territory joined the Federal Republic of Cameroon, while the northern part, ethnically united with the Hausa-city states, joined Nigeria. In 1965, Cameroon came under single-party rule. It was renamed the United Republic of Cameroon in 1972 and the Republic of Cameroon in 1984.

Domestic Unit. While the typical household in Brazil may consist of parents and children, this is not the isolated nuclear family unit familiar to Americans. Brazilian culture puts a high premium on extended family ties and Brazilians, regardless of social class, do not like to live any distance from their kin. Grown sons and daughters almost always remain at home until they marry and ideally live near their parents after marriage. Brazilians normally interact weekly, if not daily, with members of the extended kin group—cousins, aunts and uncles, married children and their spouses, and inlaws. Among the urban middle class it is not uncommon for members of an extended family to live in separate apartments in the same building. For many years, women of all ages in the Far East have been using oil from coconuts to beautify and fortify their hair. All the fatty acids, vitamin E as well as protein within the oil make it possible to feed and improve your hair, and additionally restore any skin oils which are lost through the scalp. This oil can be an effective treatment when it comes to dandruff or head lice. A little will go a long way, and so apply sparingly, or your locks may become greasy and unattractive. The voluminous columns and various reflections on cultural and literary matters by H. I. E. Dhlomo which appeared in Ilanga lase Natal newspaper from 1943 to 1954 were part of this New African literary and cultural historiography. The foundational text of these New African literary histories was Isaac Bud-M’Belle’s (1870-1947) Kafir Scholar’s Companion (1903), which emphasized the central importance newspapers in making possible the emergence African literature(s) in the African languages. We have to learn how to critique ourselves and accept our shortcomings and over-inflated sense grandeur. We should get rid of our confusion as to who we are as African People. We are neither American nor European, or Asiatic, nor will we ever be. We shall never be accepted as those people, so long as we don’t recognize and respect ourselves-so long as many of us are not comfortable in their own skins and cultures, instead, they would respect us more if we were our selves, without trying to ape others. This has happened time and again to many people: they buy a beauty skin care product that’s supposed to be formulated especially for sensitive skin, yet find themselves breaking out in rashes or suffering from skin redness after applying it. “One of the most difficult things to do these days is to talk with authority on anything to do with African culture. Somehow, Africans are not expected to have any deep understanding of their own culture or even of themselves. Other people have become authorities on all aspects of the African life or to be more accurate, on BANTU life. thus we have the thickest volumes on the strangest subjects — even “the feeding habits of the Urban Africans”” Biko is so on point here that if one peruses throughout the Web, you find such sites that talk about “The Urban African’s and their feeding patterns”, this is now in 2014, and Biko spoke about it in 1971.
