African food influences


Southern Africa
Southern African food has influences from indigenous Black tribes, Indians, Malaya, and Irish.


East Africa
In East Africa, many hundreds of years ago, the Arabs settled on the coast, and Arabic influences are especially reflected with the use of sweet spices such as cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. The British and Indians brought with them to Africa their curries and the technique of pickling to East Africa. Asians introduced citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, and limes. Portuguese introduced items like chili's, pineapples, and bananas.


Northern Africa
In North Africa, the Ottoman Turks brought sweet pastries and other bakery products.


Central Africa
Central Africa’s influence comes from the introduction of cassavas, peanuts, and pepper plants that arrived along with the slave trade.


Western Africa
In West Africa the Portuguese, French, and British influenced regional cuisines with the introduction of plantains, citrus and pineapples, which are legacy of slave ship traffic between Africa and North America. African soups and stews contain ingredients from fruits, vegetables, beef, lamb, chicken, shrimp, and fish from African coast to coast.

Nature Holds Many Secrets | Hurricanes, Angry African Ancestors

Eastern coasts of Caribbean, United States, and South America, are in danger of being blasted by hurricanes wind and rain during hurricane season from June through November. But, why?  

The scientific reason why is because of Africa’s Sahara desert dust storms and the transition of thunderstorms off the west coast of Africa. The waters in the North Atlantic Ocean are typically at their warmest while the Sahara is at its hottest from July through October, so the chances of a hurricane are highest during these months.
Hurricanes are gigantic weather systems using convection, the movement of hot and cold air, to create dangerous storms. They are rotating heat engines powered by the warmth of tropical waters having three main parts, the eye, the eyewall, and rainbands. 

Hurricanes cannot form just anywhere in the world due to the need for hot and humid air. They normally form close to the equator and move west or northwest. Hurricane Alley is a stretch of warm water through the Atlantic Ocea…

Charging Cell Phones in Rural Africa

The simple task of charging a cell phone is no simple matter in rural African villages far from an electric grid.

Living off-grid may be a lifestyle choice to some and a fact of everyday living to the poorest of the poor. However, tiny rooftop solar panels and high-efficiency LED lights across the African continent could provide enough electricity to charge cell phones. 

Cell phones are vital for people in rural areas with no access to banks in order to send and receive money, access medical care and stay in contact with family and friends.
What does Off-Grid Mean? Off the grid (off-grid) means creating your own self-sufficient environment and being able to operate completely independently of all trad…

Survival of the Fattest Meaning
The copper statue Survival of the Fattest by Jens Galschi√łt and Lars Calmar was created in 2002. The fat woman is holding a pair of scales as a symbol of justice however; she is closing her eyes so the justice. Galschiot symbolized the woman as being blind, refusing to see the obvious injustice.
For the rich people of the world the main issue in life is that of overeating while people in the third world are dying every day from hunger. 
The misery of imbalanced wealth distribution is creating floods of refugees. However the rich only want to preserve their privileges and take measures so harsh against the poor, they betray their morals …
