An extension to the Africa Growth and Opportunity Act (AGOA) came a step closer this week when the US House of Representatives unanimously approved extending the legislation from 2008 to 2015.

5. Business: Jobs available in Cape Town

The establishment of more international call centres in Cape Town is a priority targeted for Western Cape economic expansion. This is one of the niche markets mentioned by Lynne Browne, the minister of economic development, in her budget speech to the Western Cape legislature today.

6. Business: South African Ex-President Mandela must take it easy
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Mandela had been unable to complete his book about his presidential years because of interruptions by his busy schedule, but he wanted to do so now. While Mandela would always be free to attend any event in future, he might also decide to take a break for two months at a time, and we agree, he must take it easy in his twilight years.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Hussein Aideed is a US citizen and served with the US military before returning home to lead the United Somali Congress/Somali National Alliance faction after the death of his father in 1996. He controls parts of southern Mogadishu and central Somalia. It appears that he owed the money to Kenyan businessman Ijaz Hussein Ganijee.


Somalia has had no central government since 1991 and is divided into areas controlled by rival warlords. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

11. Education: Local Newspapers that capture local history
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

While the Green River Journal and the Murray Eagle may not be newspapers the general public is immediately familiar with, these Utah newspapers provided small communities with local news during their existence, and give contemporary historians a glimpse into the daily activities of people in these areas.

Working together, the University of Utah and Brigham Young University have placed digitized versions of these two publications (along with 16 other newspapers) online here as part of the Utah Digital Newspapers project. Since the project's inception in 2001, the team has digitized over 140,000 pages, and currently has plans and the funding to add over 240,000 more pages by September 2005.

Visitors using this digital archive may browse each individual newspaper by issue, or elect to search by keywords, article titles, weddings, deaths, and births. The site also has a nice map that users can scroll over to determine which counties in Utah had newspapers that are currently archived in this database. Visit this very informative site.

12. Education: Religion and Ethics
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Religion and ethics are some of the most debated areas of the human experience around the world, so it is fitting that the BBC has created this online clearinghouse of relevant information and news coverage about these two complex topics.

The site contains a number of general interest sections that provide rich discussion of various world religions and a number of subjects in the field of ethics, such as the ethics of war, euthanasia, human cloning, and genetic engineering.

Visitors can also listen to broadcasts of the BBC's many programs devoted to exploring various religions, such as Missionaries, which looks at the legacy of missionary work around the world. Equally compelling are the fractious message boards where visitors can opine about various religious topics and ethical debates.

The site is rounded out by an interactive multi faith calendar, which shows the religious festivals and celebrations of eight world faiths. To visit this site, go to this link, BBC Religion

16. Immigration: Disclaimer about Tuariki Delamere of New Zealand
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

By political reporter from New Zealand

Immigration Minister Lianne Dalziel says former minister Tuariki Delamere is behind a "sophisticated scam" that allows migrants to avoid residency rules.

She revealed the scheme to the finance and expenditure select committee yesterday and labeled it disgusting.

Mr. Delamere was Immigration Minister in the last National Government until sacked just before the 1999 election by then-Prime Minister Jenny Shipley. The Delamere Group is in no way associated with this individual.

Editor's Note: We received further updates regarding this case. Mr Delamere was eventually found not guilty of committing any crime.

18. Immigration: How stupid is the UK immigration system?
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The panic began when a letter landed on the doormats of every Chinese restaurant and takeaway in the country. At first glance, the circular from Home Office minister Des Browne appeared to be little more than bureaucratic housekeeping, announcing a change in immigration checking procedures.

But the letter - and the immigration crackdown on illegal workers it heralded - has sparked a recruitment crisis that spreads from the kitchens of London's Chinatown to takeaways across the country.

Restaurant owners, faced with the threat of two years in jail and heavy fines, have sacked hundreds of workers who lacked the proper documentation, even though many of them had worked in the same establishments for years. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.


Editor's Note: We warned the Home Office about this problem many years ago and they ignored our letter.

Kingston, Jamaica - Ousted Haitian President Jean-Bertrand Aristide said on Sunday that South Africa would be his "temporary home" until he can return to Haiti.

He referred to himself as the "elected president" and urged his supporters not to resort to violence. This guy is one of the wealthiest men on the planet, why did he choose South Africa?
