Isabel Dos Santos is Africa's only female African billionaire. She is the oldest daughter of Angola's longtime president. President Jose Eduardo dos Santos has been in power since 1979 and is Africa's second-longest serving head of state after Equatorial Guinea's Teodoro Obiang.

A billionaire is someone who has more than a billion dollars $1,000,000,000 in the form of property, possessions, or dollars, pounds, or other monetary units.Isabel dos Santos owns a 25% stake in Unitel, Angola’s first private mobile phone operator, 42% of a bank, Banco BIC and is a major shareholder in several other large companies in Angola and Portugal. In October 2015, four members of the European Parliament publicly called for an investigation into her investments in Portugal.

Angola is Africa’s top oil producer; June 2016, her father appointed her the head of Sonangol, Angola's state oil firm. Despite the scandal of nepotism, African billionaire dos Santos in December 2016 stated her intention to remain with Sonangol oil even after her father retires as Angola’s President after the 37-year rule in 2018.

Isabel dos Santos says Sonangol will be split into three separate units; exploration and production, logistics and a division that handles Sonangol’s concessions to international oil companies. In November 2015, the BBC named Isabel dos Santos as one of the 100 most influential women in the world.

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.
With the advent of tiny rooftop solar panels electricity could be accessible to millions.
African governments are struggling to meet to electric needs of the poorest of the poor living in rural areas.

The copper statue Survival of the Fattest by Jens Galschiøt 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.
