1. Business: Mozambique Monuments to Government Mismanagement
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The 24 fishing boats rusting in the harbour of Mozambique's capital were meant to be a modern tuna fleet that would rake in hard currency, create jobs and provide a cheap source of protein for one of the world's poorest countries. Instead, they have become monuments to government mismanagement and heavy lending by Western banks that have buried a promising African economy in a deep debt crisis.

2. Education: Captain Cook & His Ship Endeavour
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The ship Endeavour in which the explorer Captain Cooke charted New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific ended its life sold, renamed and scuttled in the war to keep America British. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

3. Education: Sir Winston Churchill
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Half a century on from his death, Churchill is considered by many to be the greatest Briton. But his legacy didn't always look so secure. From trouble at school to errors in office, Churchill's path to greatness was often a rocky one. To read the full report and listen to interviews of this outstanding character, go to our NEWS DESK link. (BBC)

4. Education: Battle of Salaita in Africa Remembered
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Earlier this year marked 100 years since the battle of Salaita Hill and the First World War German East Africa (GEA) campaign that followed in and around what is today Tanzania. The then Union’s involvement in GEA cost the lives of more than 2 000 South Africans – the vast majority from appalling campaign-induced deprivations to their health.

5. Immigration: Personal Experience of Emigrating to New Zealand
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

I have lived in New Zealand for 12 years. My wife and I emigrated in 2000 with our then 8-month-old daughter and relocated back to South Africa in 2012 with our four children. Myan Subrayan spent 12 years in New Zealand before returning to SA and he advises people not to rush to other countries, especially without solid job prospects.

6. Immigration: Refugee Camps in Kenya to be Closed?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =


The Kenyan government says that it plans to close Dadaab, the world’s largest refugee camp. It had also threatened to close the country’s other major refugee camp, Kakuma, but has subsequently said it won’t. Speaking at the World Humanitarian Summit in Istanbul, Deputy President William Ruto declared that Dadaab will be closed by the end of the year. This move has gained much-needed attention. Kenya continues to host one of the largest refugee populations at a time when international attention has overwhelmingly turned to Europe and the movement of people out of Syria. Despite hosting more than half a million people, the camps’ remote locations and longevity have made them easy to ignore. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link. (SABC)

7. Travel: Enjoying the British Waterways
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

There are more than 2,000 miles of navigable inland waterways in Britain and more in Northern Ireland. Life slows to a walking pace when cruising these liquid highways that once thronged with cargo vessels. Relax and enjoy rural views, industrial-era heritage, sunlight reflecting off water and the bird life; or exert yourself with operating locks and swing bridges. Most hire boats are steel narrowboats, but there are luxurious options, with skipper and crew. Here are 10 ideas for discovering Britain's waterways. To read the full report and see these great photos, go to our NEWS DESK link.

8. Travel: Visiting Salt Lake City in Utah, USA
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

High in the Wasatch Range of the Rocky Mountains on the south-east periphery of the Great Salt Lake, Salt Lake City is about more than Mormons. A new direct Delta Airlines route from London has made it easier to explore Utah’s state capital, which is enjoying something of a renaissance as hipsters from nearby Colorado and Oregon flock to the city to escape rising rent rates, arriving with attendant craft breweries and artisan coffee shops. Quality of life is excellent, with hiking trails winding out of the city and into the mountains and many of the state’s 14 ski resorts a short drive away, not least the newly created Park City, America's largest ski resort.

9. Travel: Tourism Between China and California
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The California Legislature recently passed a resolution declaring May 2016 and every May thereafter as California Travel and Tourism Month, which is expected to promote tourist exchanges between the state and China. "Travel and tourism is a 'chimney-free' industry and also provides employment opportunities and tax revenue in all parts of the state," said Kansen Chu, California Assembly member and the author of the resolution. "The Travel and Tourism Month is aimed to remind us of the importance of sustaining and growing the number of visitors to California." Last year, travel spending in California reached $122.5 billion, a new record, which supported 1.1 million jobs and generated $9.9 billion in state and local tax revenue, according to an annual economic impact report released early this month by Visit California, a nonprofit organization that promotes California on behalf of the state's tourism industry.

10. Travel: Visiting St. Helena, in the South Atlantic
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The St Helena Airport has been given the go-ahead to start commercial flight operations. South African construction firm Basil Read was, in November 2011, awarded the contract to design, build and operate the airport on the remote island of St Helena, a British territory 2 300 km north-west of Walvis Bay. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link. (Creamer Media)

 

Editor’s Note:  Visit our web site on St. Helena. Latest Update: This airport built with £250-million from the ballooning foreign aid budget risks becoming a white elephant because it is too windy to land there safely, it was claimed. A royal opening at the airport on the remote island of St Helena has been postponed indefinitely after test flights raised safety concerns. Read more.

11. Travel: Reliving the Ship Queen Mary
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

This year, 2016, our majestic Queen will sail past another unprecedented milestone upon the oceans of time. May 27th will mark the 80th Anniversary of the ship’s Maiden Voyage away back in 1936. In 31 years of plying the North Atlantic Ocean in war and peace, in fair weather and foul, the Queen Mary would become the most celebrated ocean liner the world has ever known. Since her retirement from the sea as an active liner in 1967, the Queen Mary has never been more popular as an iconic Southern California attraction, hotel and venue for special events. The ship carried some 2.2 million passengers in peacetime and 810,000 military personnel in the Second World War, but here in Long Beach an estimated 50 million people have visited. To see this compelling video clip, go to our NEWS DESK link.

 

Editor's Note: The management and staff of the Delamere Group based in Long Beach, California, are fortunate to be able to enjoy the excellent cuisine supplied aboard the Queen Mary, especially Sir Winston’s Restaurant & Lounge. Click here to see for yourself next time you are in Long Beach.
