mikeapollo:


Ghana musicians need to sing more in English and invest more in promoting their songs internationally. They produce the best beats in Africa...Highlife and Afrobeat which actually originated from Ghana.

Without the Ghana-originated beats and rhytmns, which is what has been dominating Africa right now, the Davido, Tekno, Tekno, Runtown etc are nothing because all their hit songs are based on imitation of the Highlife and Alkaeeda beats which they call "Afrobeats"

Thank you,
Was so scandalized with some people claiming Ghana is copy cating Nigerian music.
Anyone who has had anything to do with music knows its the other way round. It didn't start today, somewhere around the 1960s that Nigeria has been copying Ghanaian beats and rhythm.
The current Pumpum beat is an evidence.

Sports / Statue Unveiled For The First Black Professional Footballer by djfiifi(m): 10:22pm On Oct 16, 2014
A statue of the world's first black
professional football was unveiled at St.
George's Park in Burton, England, on
Thursday.
Arthur Wharton, a Fantse from Gold Coast, modern-day Ghana
in 1865, played professionally for
Rotherham Town and Sheffield United.
He had initially joined up as an amateur
with Darlington at the age of 19, having
arrived in Britain with the intention of
training as a Methodist missionary but
opted for a career in sport, playing
predominantly as a goalkeeper but also as
a winger.
He has now been honoured with a 16-foot
statue at the FA's national football centre
and St. George's Park chairman David
Sheepshanks said on the governing body's
official website: "Today is a historic day to
mark the achievements and the legacy of
the late, great Arthur Wharton.
"But it's also a future day because it's a
day that going to inspire a whole new
generation of young players and in
particular young coaches to want to reach
for the top and be the best they possibly
can be.
"When you look at what this man achieved
it's simply extraordinary. Imagine the
courage he had to display to achieve what
he did in those days.
"We often talk how hard it is for young
people from black and Asian minority
backgrounds to get into top jobs today, so
imagine what it was like then. Certainly not
enough people know about his story and
we're going to embrace it in the tour
programmes of all the young people and
schools that come here.
"We're going to make sure his story is told
to all the coach education cohorts that
come through here -- and that will manifest
and grow and I think it will become a really
important part of what St. George's Park is
all about.
"We are here to embrace talent from
wherever it comes. Hopefully today will be
a moment in time that everyone will look
back and say: 'You know from that day
onwards opportunities grew -- no matter
what background you came from.'"
Wharton was also became the Amateur
Athletics Association's national 100-yard
running champion in 1886 and is said to
have become the first man to run 100 yards
in 10 seconds.
Shaun Campbell, who founded the Arthur
Wharton Foundation, added: "Today is a
very proud day. It's been a long journey but
it's one that's been an absolute honour and
a privilege to be part of.
"But this statue is not the end, it is the
beginning. Football is part of the wider
problem, but it is also the biggest army in
the world. If you can unite the fans, the
support base, it has the capacity to really
make a difference -- and it's very exciting.
"To move forward we have to tackle it on a
global scale, but football can kick-off that
campaign.
"You don't have time to feel the stresses
and strains of championing something like
this because your own adversity can never
match that which he faced.
"This is the beginning of true recognition for
the black and ethnic minority groups to this
country."

Sports / Breaking News - Ghana Sacks Coach After 3:2 Win Over Togo by djfiifi(m): 10:08pm On Sep 11, 2014
The Ghana FA have today agreed to make
Milovan Rajevac the new Black Stars coach
following an interview earlier.
Citi Sports understands that Kwesi Appiah is
done as the coach of Ghana and a severance
package will be held by the end of the
weekend.
The former Black Stars coach touched down
in Accra on Monday in what he thought was a
quiet entry, but he was caught by journalists.
Citi Sports understands that the 60-year old
had an interview with the Ghana FA on
Thursday.
Following a dismal World Cup, the plan was
to get a technical adviser for Kwesi Appiah,
who then chose veteran local coach Ben
Koufie.
The choice was rebuffed by the three-man
committee setup to do the job, who then
went about looking for another choice.
Milovan’s coming sends clear signals that
key people within the FA are paving the way
for him, despite the initial plan being for him
to be a technical adviser, if at all.
Citi Sports had reported on Tuesday that if
Appiah lost against Togo, Rajevac could be
named coach before the week ends.
But the GFA are said to have moved up the
decision even after Appiah commandeered a
resilient 3-2 win against Togo on
Wednesday.
The FA are aware of Milovan’s popularity
despite the abrupt way he left Ghana
following his historic leadership of the team
to the last eight of the 2010 World Cup.
He also led Ghana to a final place in the
2010 African Cup and, a year before, another
final place finish of the nation’s CHAN team.
Rajevac has since insisted that he only left
the job because a deal to renew a contract
was not handled by the FA well.

Writing on the wall
The GFA, in August, set up a three-man
committee to appoint a technical adviser for
the Black Stars.
Citi Sports had earlier revealed that the
Serbian, who was one of three names being
considered, was favourite to land the job .
He told GNA Sports earlier this week: “I
cannot wait to join the family again. I am
very excited to be back here; my second
home. It is always relaxing and I love it
here.”
Kwesi Appiah who has previously stated that
he has not considered resigning from his
position,

Politics / India Swaps Ice For Rice In New Bucket Challenge by djfiifi(m): 12:33am On Aug 27, 2014
http://edition.cnn.com/2014/08/25/world/asia/india-rice-bucket-challenge/index.html?hpt=hp_c5

This is what I call SENSIBLE COPYING ,they did it to solve their problem, what are our celebrities doing to help curb Ebola in Africa?

New Dehli (CNN) -- The ALS Ice Bucket
Challenge has morphed into a considerably
warmer and drier alternative in India.
Enter the "Rice Bucket Challenge."
Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi, who
works for the U.S.-based rice research
website Oryza.com , says when she first
heard about the ice bucket challenge, she got
thinking.
"Why waste water?" she asks. "I felt like
doing something more locally tangible. Rice
is a staple here. We eat it every day, we can
store it for months. Why not donate rice to
someone who is hungry?"
And it rhymes with ice. So Kalanidhi started
her own challenge: Donate a bucket of rice to
someone in need, post a photo online, and
challenge your friends to do the same.
The original version, designed to raise funds
to fight amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
— also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease and
motor neurone disease (MND) -- is a global
viral phenomenon.
People take videos of themselves getting
doused with a bucket full of ice, share it
online, and challenge friends to do the same
or donate money to the cause. It is in effect a
modern virtual chain letter.
Hundreds of celebrities -- from
Oprah Winfrey to Roger Federer
-- have participated and fueled
interest, raising more than $70
million in donations for the ALS
Association.
In India, the ice bucket challenge
has generated attention too --
Bollywood stars have mirrored
their Hollywood counterparts --
but it now seems it will be
eclipsed by what some are
describing as an Indian
challenge for Indian needs:
fighting hunger.
#RiceBucketChallenge is on its
way to going viral in India -- it's
on TV news, on Twitter, and it
now has a Facebook page with
thousands of likes.
"People from all over the world
are responding," says Kalanidhi,
listing off letters of appreciation
from people in Sweden, England, and beyond.
The explosion of interest in the rice challenge
is an indicator of how powerful social media
has become in India.
According to eMarketer, the number of
internet users in India is expected to be
around 200 million in 2016, a nearly three-
fold increase since 2011.
Much of the growth comes from smartphone
users: younger Indians who would be more
likely to use social media.

Islam for Muslims / Re: Muslim Inventions That Shaped The Modern World by djfiifi(m): 7:21am On Nov 21, 2013
tbaba1234: grin grin

Up till today, Arabic words/culture are still in the university system.

Alumni comes from the word Alim (which means a knowledgeable one).

Even the design of the graduation thobe is from the muslims....

The roots are still there.

We are talking of the things that laid the foundation for the modern world not the finished products.

No need to get worked up over this. Every civilisation has made some contribution to the modern world.

I don't know a lot about Arabic but I bet to differ on the origin of the 'alumni'
From my four year study of Latin at the seminary and the little etymology I studied at the university.
'alumni' came from the Latin noun 'alumnus' which means "foster
son, pupil" and is derived from the verb
alere

I now understand the verses below,especially the 17.



2 Peter 3:14-17
14 Therefore, beloved, since you are
waiting for these, be diligent to be found
by him without spot or blemish, and at
peace.

15 And count the patience of our Lord as
salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul
also wrote to you according to the wisdom
given him,

16 As he does in all his letters when he
speaks in them of these matters. There
are some things in them that are hard to
understand, which the ignorant and
unstable twist to their own destruction, as
they do the other Scriptures.



17 You therefore, beloved, knowing this
beforehand, take care that you are not
carried away with the error of LAWLESS
people and lose your own stability.

We're kicking Boko Haram's ass all over Nirthern Nigeria, Cameroun, Niger and Chad. We pulled out of Sierra Leone UN team, and the Indians packed their bags, saying, no Nigerians, no peacekeeping force.
