Os Egípcios "históricos" construíram as pirâmides ?
Há quem diga que não, porem isto nos diz algo sobre a história de #Angola, pois quando passei pelo QG da marinha vi a Sentinela no posto de pé depois de uma grelha com os números 1863, será que significa algo para ele ? Não.
Estava a procurar um lugar para almoçar e encontrei um simpático restaurante no edifício central dos correios de Angola, é o que era antes uma sala de caixas postais agora é um restaurante, não isto seja mal a nível de quem decidiu a conversão, mais em termos históricos
Quando um povo encontra infraestruturas que não construiu, especialmente quando não tem significado ou utilidade para si, pode as abandonar a decrepitude ou reutilizar para outros fins

Por isto tanto prédios Portugueses estão em ruína em #Luanda, #Angola.

Maquetas de casas feitas pelos alunos do Colégio Católico Nossa Senhora da Anunciação, em #Viana, #Luanda, #Angola. ImageImageImageImage
O colégio tem muita iconografia cristã adornando as paredes, e tem como lema : Oração e Educação.

Nossa Senhora de Fátima. Image
A única arte pagã no colégio são dois vasos com figuras e letras "pseudo-gregas", ninguém sabe como pararam ai, suspeito que é legado do primeiro senhorio.

Alguém pode traduzir ? Image

Fiquei positivamente surpreso pela entrevista do deputado Angolano pelo círculo de #Cabinda Bento Bembe na @tvzimbooficial , apesar do entrevistador ser um pouco repetitivo ao tentar fazer perguntas de esclarecimento

Falou do FCD, da guerra e reconciliação, e de #Angola
@tvzimbooficial O Bento Bembe esta longe da incontinência verbal e da arrogância infantil de um Bento Kangamba

Mede as palavras, tem um tom calmo e respeitoso, tanto de aliados e de inimigos

Usa um pouco tradição das parábolas dos BaKongo, sem a vulgaridade e exagero de Makuta Nkondo
Talvez por ter sido mais contacto com a morte o Bento Bembe tem uma visão mais realista da política, sendo que explicou o porque do FCD : Sem saída militar e diante da mão estendida do governo central assinou um acordo de paz, deixando para trás os que foram teimosos

📣NEW📣 Our monthly #INFOGRAPHIC is here, with all you need to know about how #African countries are responding to #COVID19.

Our headline?

While deliveries are still far too low, #China has surpassed #COVAX as #Africa's top vaccine source. How and why? Read on 🧵👇🏾!

2/ The first fact to be aware of is that #Africa accounts for under 3% of global cases, under 4% of global deaths, and under 2% of global vaccines administered.
3/ African governments and the @_AfricanUnion have so far ordered doses to cover 50% of the population. But only 1.9% of the population could be covered right now. It's a huge discrepancy, because deliveries are too slow.

1.@wkamaubell @drdrew Unlike you I don’t have a @KeckMedUSC #MD but I’ve known that #Vaccines are needed to travel internationally since I was 4. In 1959 my father had several vaccines. These left scars which were noticeable until he died in 2009. I don’t have the records for...
2. these but I know how the #SalazarDictatorship worked. I’m sure that my father had to provide his vaccine records to leave #Portugal to go work in #Angola. His scars weren't enough proof. I’ve known about the #InternationalCertificateOfVaccination since I was 8 bc......

Between tradition and modernity. ImageImageImageImage
Designed by the French painter Jacques Majorelle the garden was created over the course of forty years, and consists of a labyrinth of crisscrossing alleyways on different levels and boldly-coloured buildings that blend both Art Deco and Moorish influences.

In 35 years in government, public policy, and industry, I've been bold but dedicated to truth.

In the mid-80s, I told you that our Reagan Doctrine initiatives in #Afghanistan, #Angola, #Cambodia, #Nicaragua, etc. would ultimately bring down the entire Soviet Union, and they did.
In the Bush 41 @WhiteHouse, I warned that betraying or deviating from the #Reagan #conservative legacy would lead to our defeat in 1992, which it sadly did.
In '09, as I played a leading and instrumental role in launching our national #TeaParty movement, I said that we were not seeking to merely tweak policies here and there. Our goal, I said, was to take back our entire government.

Cynics snickered, but we did exactly that.

My grandfathers, their brothers, all saw active duty in a time of war and during other operations. Service helped them pay for medical school, law school, college but that wasn't why they served. They served because they love this country and it didn't come without sacrifice.

My family came to beautiful Monterey County for similar reasons. Community and further service. My grandfather's brother was here at the language school learning Portuguese. He was one of the youngest graduates of Iowa law school and rose to the rank of Colonel.

Their commitment to our Country always inspired me to do more - without fear or favor.

I've always been committed to the health of my home community because of the lessons I learned at the dinner table, or long conversations about the world and elsewhere.

Enjoy #VeteransDay

So much said about #China as an emerging lender to Africa (& globally). But there are others worth a mention who've increased their lending to African governments: #SaudiArabia #India #Kuwait #Brazil #UAE Thread. 1/7
Data been hard to find, but International Debt Statistics, published by @WorldBank just now, show external debt by creditor country. See large growth over past decade (since widespread debt relief). #China by far largest but others' growth important (especially Gulf lenders) 2/7 Image
This often followed by point that it makes solving debt problems harder. As more creditors, not in the Paris Club, with exposure. True, but there's also a positive in African countries being able to source more capital from more places. Needs to be used well of course 3/7

Ayer se supo que el #FMI hará su 1era misión en octubre. Con @jotaechague en @ConsultatioPlus aprovechamos el informe de esta semana para analizar un caso interesante: el EFF de #Angola, que quizás nos puede enseñar algunas cosas respecto de la macro que viene. Sale hilario 1/14
Empecemos con las diferencias: #Angola es la tercer economía de África SS, con un tamaño de solo 1/4 de Argy y una importancia regional relativamente menor. El crédito de Angola es un % mucho menor de su propia cuota como en % del total de la cartera del FMI. 2/14 Image
Otra diferencia: #Angola es muy dependiente del sector hidrocarburífero: representa c100% de las exportaciones y >50% de ingresos públicos. Su suerte está atada a los vaivenes del precio del crudo. Hechas estas aclaraciones, empecemos por las similitudes 3/14

Black LA man, FW Bryant, was convicted for a 1997 "attempted simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling" & sentenced to no parole b/c of prior petty theft convictions. 5 white men on LA Supreme Court voted vs reviewing the sentence. #BlackLivesMatter…
#Louisiana taxpayers have spent $518,667 to punish Bryant for attempting to steal a pair of clippers, Chief Justice Bernette Johnson, the only black justice, notes & compares the sentence to post-Civil War laws that aimed to "re-enslave African Americans."
#Prison activists/#reporters: I couldn't find Bryant in LA's prisoner locator. Says "high-profile" people aren't included. Wanna bet he's working for free in the fields at #Angola Plantation-LA State Pen (or has in the past)? @JeffreyGoldberg

#PequeñosGrandesHeroes, Capítulo 3️⃣

En esta edición volvemos a cambiar de continente. Estamos en #Africa 🌍 para hablar de un seleccionado que hizo historia en el 2006, #Angola 🇦🇴. Este es un relato triunfal en medio de tantas desgracias. Image
Angola es una nación relativamente joven, ya que se independizó de #Portugal 🇵🇹 en 1975. Si bien es un país rico en yacimientos minerales y petrolíferos, no pudieron disfrutar de los beneficios de esto ya que la guerra civil los atrapó y los hundió en la miseria. Image
La guerra acabaría recién en el 2002, aunque sus secuelas quedarán por siempre en todos aquellos que la han vivido, sea por combatir como por haber perdido a algún ser querido. De hecho, los jugadores de esta historia no quedarían exentos de este dolor... Image
