A Dream, Africa, and Bailey Jay: A Malawian teenager named William Kamkwamba taught himself how to build a windmill out of junk and bring power to his village. He then went on to build a second, larger windmill to power irrigation pumps. He did this all from books he read in the library.

And he was not prepared to wait for politicians or aid groups to do it for him. The need for action was even greater in 2002 following one of Malawi’s worst droughts, which killed thousands of people and left his family on the brink of starvation. Unable to attend school, he kept up his education by using a local library. Fascinated by science, his life changed one day when he picked up a tattered textbook and saw a picture of a windmill. Mr Kamkwamba told the BBC News website: “I was very interested when I saw the windmill could make electricity and pump water. “I thought: ‘That could be a defense against hunger. Maybe I should build one for myself’.” When not helping his family farm maize, he plugged away at his prototype, working by the light of a paraffin lamp in the evenings. But his ingenious project met blank looks in his community of about 200 people. “Many, including my mother, thought I was going crazy,” he recalls. “They had never seen a windmill before.” [x] In 2014, William Kamkwamba received his 4 year degree at Dartmouth College in Hanover, New Hampshire where he was a student.

Bailey Jay, Beautiful, and College: About this item Hi. I'm your new Marimo (Japanese) Cladophora Ball, or Moss Ball (English). I am a rare algae growth that only forms in a few lakes in Iceland, Scotland, Japan and Estonia. Many cultures consider me good luck. l'm very easy to care for. Just place me in a container with tap water and change it every one or two weeks. Please rinse anything you add to my container to keep my home clean. You don't need to feed me. I don't require anything but low light and clean water to live. Please don't put me in direct sunlight. We don't get much of that on the lake floor, so I don't like it. I am most comfortable in normal to low household lighting. The gentle lake currents give me my beautiful round shape. If you gently swirl my water every once in a while that would be great. As a special treat you could even take me out and gently roll me across your palm. I sink or float depending on my mood (oxygen produced by the photosynthesis moves me up and down.) If turn brown you can help me by replacing my water, squeezing me under running water to wash out any dirt, and adding about 5% table salt to my water. I will recover quickly. Also, a night in the fridge is like a week at the spa for me as I prefer cold water. I can live up to 200 years and grow about.5cm per year. Thanks for being so kind to me. Now I'm going to get to work being awesome. kaijutegu: hotbabespaghetti: This is probably the cutest This is the perfect pet for people who want to keep a small container of water with something pretty in it. Even though it’s a plant and not a fish, it’s way cuter than a sad, cramped betta- and less maintenance, too. A marimo is perfect for that pretty aesthetic or your college dorm room. Want a mason jar aquarium? A marimo will be perfectly happy in there. Want a fishbowl with pretty rocks? Get a marimo, or even a few of them! I can’t overstate how wonderful and cute marimo are.

Africa, Google, and Memes: WE CARE MORE ABOUTTHINGS BURIED IN THE GROUND IG: @CONSCIOUSVIBRANCY THAN THE REOPLE ONIT Diamond miners who work in small-scale mining – panning or digging for diamonds – produce about 15% of the world’s diamonds. But their wages do not reflect the value of their work. -- An estimated one million diamond diggers in Africa earn less than a dollar a day. This unlivable wage is below the extreme poverty line. As a result, hundreds of thousands of miners lack basic necessities such as running water and sanitation. Hunger, illiteracy, and infant mortality are commonplace. Even within developing countries, diamond mining communities are often the most impoverished. -- Besides being grossly underpaid, many diamond miners work in extremely dangerous conditions. Small-scale diamond mining is often conducted without training or expertise. Miners may lack safety equipment and the proper tools. They can easily die or be injured in landslides, mine collapses, and other accidents. -- Diamond mining also contributes to public health problems. The sex trade thrives in many diamond mining towns, leading to the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases. Environmental devastation resulting from diamond mining is another cause of disease. In Sierra Leone, miners have littered the landscape with thousands of abandoned mining pits. These pits fill with stagnant rainwater, become infested with mosquitoes, and serve as breeding grounds for malaria. -- "People were created to be loved. Things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos, is because things are being loved and people are being used." Consciousvibrancy Article: https:-www.brilliantearth.com-conflict-diamond-child-labor-?abv=81&utm_expid=1332916-304.hM-ctAR5RFOOfJL5tFLcng.1&utm_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.ca%2F

Africa, Children, and Crying: Deported for the 2nd time this week.... @chakabars It's so hard for Africans to travel Africa.. I'm so upset, I'm crying while I am writing this, all I want to do is see the children and make sure they are ok...I have been deported from DR Congo twice this week. I got my visa at the Congolese in Ethiopia, twice, because I was told it was ok to get it there. The government in Congo has just changed and they don't want westerners going there. So they are taking months to give out Visas in london. The goverment don't look after the impoverished children properly. They live in massive houses and never go down to the "poor" areas. When I first met the children in Ngaba they weren't being fed properly, there was nobody to pay their medical bills or school fees. I have been organising my life to make sure that they are good and I just want to move them out of terrible conditions that they live in. My heritage is Jamaican, but I wasn't raised there, I was raised in the UK, but I don't belong there, the only reason I am there is because of the slavery of my ancestors. I don't speak an African language so when I'm in Africa it's difficult to communicate. I feel like I'm an alien sometimes. When I met the children I felt like I belonged, they are orphans in their own country, I am an orphan of the planet. When my ancestors were stolen from Ghana or wherever, we didn't need a f*cking passport, now I need a passport to go back... And a £90 yellow fever which gives you a chicken Embryo injected with yellow fever. Yellow fever isn't even a problem, nor is Ebola. AIDS was put in to Africa by polio vaccines (Hilary koprowski) Some europeans created the borders for this reason, so they could divide and conquer us. They have built their whole society off the back of Africa, never apologised, don't share, still exploit Africa, they don't give back equally and we still experience racism. Many children in Africa are suffering, yes they are joyful because they are better humans than us. But the suffering is so much, no running water, no electricity, no sanitation, no food, no humanity, what can they do? more below 👇🏾
