Solar Eclipse of 2010 The solar eclipse that will occur on January 15, 2010 is called the Annular eclipse of the Sun. This is the longest solar eclipse of 21st century. The annular solar eclipse will be visible from 11:00 am to 3:30pm in India. The solar eclipse path begins in central Africa, crosses the Indian Ocean to touch the southern tip on India, and then moves on to Southeast Asia, ending in southeastern China. The maximum duration of solar eclipse is 11 minutes 10 seconds which will be seen in Indian Ocean region in South India. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun. An annular solar eclipse occurs when the Moon’s apparent diameter is smaller than the Sun. This causes the sun to look like an annulus or ring, blocking most of the Sun’s light. The annular eclipse will appear as partial eclipse over a region thousands of miles wide.

BY MILA MIMICA President Obama’s putting boots on the ground in Uganda -- to the tune of 100 U.S. troops in support of that country’s fight against rebel forces. MSNBC’s Martin Bashir reports. “President Obama sent a letter today to Congress announcing the U.S. military will put 100 combat-ready troops on the ground in central Africa to help the local military help remove the Lord’s Resistance Army’s Joseph Kony and his commanders.” As Washington Post’s Elizabeth Flock explains, Kony and the LRA are responsible for wreaking havoc across central Africa for more than two decades. “...the group has engaged in an armed rebellion against the Ugandan government and committed an extraordinary number of human rights violations … [T]roops enter a village, killing the adults and kidnapping the children. The boys are enscripted into the army and the girls are taken as ‘bush wives.’” CNN’s Barbara Star points out the intervention in central Africa is part of recent intelligence-gathering attempts. Barbara Star: “US troops may wind up now in Uganda, South Sudan, Central African Republic, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It’s part of a growing military effort to engage in Africa.” General Martin Dempsey: “And so our presence on the African continent is part of our network of building partners, of gaining intelligence.” The fact President Obama chose to send a letter to Congress after deploying troops to Uganda as well as in Libya earlier this year is drawing some parallels between the two incidents, but a contributor to Fox News says the two cases are not created equal. “It is surprising. Although this is very different from the Libyan case... Congress unanimously in both houses passed a law in 2009 calling on the president to put a stop to Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army.” Although it took the administration two years to act on that law, Henry Okello Oryem, Uganda’s foreign acting foreign minister, told Al Jazeera the country has needed international military aid for decades. “For 20 years, the government of Uganda has been pleading with our American and European friends to help in the LRA problem, because these are international terrorists … We wanted our friends to help in providing technical support, such as intelligence, because they have the best." According to The New York Times, the U.S. sent 17 counter-terrorism specialists to Uganda during George W. Bush’s administration. But... “Unlike the earlier effort, the 100 military advisers sent by Mr. Obama will be armed. They will be providing assistance and advice to their African hosts, Mr. Obama said, and ‘will not themselves engage LRA forces unless necessary for self-defense.’”

*******www.africanmagick****/ Palo MayombePalo – or The Laws of the Congo – are a group of closely related denominations, sects and religious practices of Bantu origins. They are the roots of slaves brought to Cuba from Central Africa. Other names associated with The Laws of the Congo include Palo Mayombe, Palo Monte, Palo Congo, Brillumba, Voodoo, Obeah, Candomble, Kimbisa and more. Originating in the Great Lakes region of Eastern Equatorial Africa, many Bantu peoples migrated to other Central African regions. Some wanted to escape wars of conquest and expansion. Others to expand their own families. And yet others to find more fertile lands and escape disease. After crossing the African continent in a toilsome march, one of the Bantu migration waves spread in the area of tropical forests and grasslands.

Amazon**** description: Filmed during a brutal drought in central Africa, this brilliantly photographed video from National Geographic follows the punishing predicament of animals living along the dwindling Luvuvhu River. As the water level sinks during the dry season, animals, including baboons and impalas, are forced to seek water in pools filled with hippos and deadly crocodiles. At one point the crocodiles, who are the focus of the filming, are described as "artists of violence," and the term seems entirely apt when they are seen striking out with lightning speed from places of total concealment in the water and mud. As the camera lingers on the watering hole, the behavior of increasingly desperate and thirsty animals is shown in all its brutal detail, and portions of this video will have the squeamish averting their eyes. Even though the violent outbursts are handled as tastefully as possible (it is, after all, a National Geographic production), some scenes, such as a violent confrontation between crocodiles and baboons, are heartrending. And while some of the video is inevitably difficult to watch, the photography is always spectacular; some of the shots, such as scenes of a baby hippo blithely wallowing among the crocodiles under the mother hippo's watchful eye, are astounding. This video is both brutal and beautiful, and puts the viewer as close as possible (and desirable) to some of Africa's most amazing wildlife. --Robert J. McNamara Product Description: In the daily struggle for survival, terrible thirst drives wildlife to water...even when the water is just inches away from the jaws of a crocodile. During one harsh season, a punishing drought draws some of Africa's most magnificent creatures to the shrinking pools of the Luvuvhu River. Its dwindling waters provide relief for baboons, impala, elephants, lions, water birds and bee-eaters - but also a refuge for scores of hungry crocodiles. Amidst the stunning scenes of nature at its harshest, strange things happen. A baby crocodile basks on top of a hippopotamus. Baboons attack a crocodile that has taken a youngster from the troop. Crocodiles harass a heron and steal its hard-won catch. And hippos calmly wade into the middle of a crocodile feeding frenzy. But the power of nature and her relentless drought may prove greater than even that of the most fearsome beasts. This cruel season may turn out to be the LAST FEAST OF THE CROCODILES.

Las cifras hablan de mas de 30.000 niños. podemos detenerlo a través de las redes sociales, conoce, infórmate y esparce su nombre para que los lideres mundiales sepan que a las personas nos importa y que podemos intervenir porque queremos...
