Mother Africa : Trees of Africa : Baobab Tree

“Wisdom is like a baobab tree; no one individual can embrace it.  (African Proverbs and Sayings)


What Do You Know About the Baobab Tree? ~ Medium.com











Trees Deserve Respect

Ailanthus altissima is an ornamental tree grown mainly for shade and also for its leaves which the silkworm feeds on. Sounds prettier when it is called by its unscientific name: "tree of heaven". The acacia thrives in the wilderness of Paran (the location of several historic events in the Bible).

United States Map in Crayon Colors

Maps are like sad songs. They say so much.

I kind of like the map below because of its crayon-brights blocks of color!

The product description says:

Crayon-bright blocks of color make the “United States Map” especially easy to read – and make a bold style statement at the same time. State names and borders are clearly marked, as well as international borders, state capitals, secondary cities, and an inset map of Alaska and Hawaii. The map is a fun, appealing learning tool for kids, and an eye-catching artwork for adults.

It sure caught my eye! Instead of viewing my beloved country in intensities of hot and cold, or red or blue, I rather like seeing it as a rainbow! South Africa is called a Rainbow Nation. I like the concept.

International Real Estate Investing - South Africa, Costa Rica, Panama and The Bahamas are Awesome Choices!

International real estate investing is not for the faint of heart.  Many investors vie to own a piece of South Africa. It is considered by some to be the most coveted prime real estate on the planet. But think also about Costa Rica, Panama and The Bahamas as international real estate investment choices. Why pass on an opportunity to own a small part of a paradise? The political climate in these 3 countries is much less volatile than South Africa. Plus they all have great diving and fishing spots! :)

Real Estate Investing in the Rainbow Nation, South Africa

Opportunity cost is the term used to calculate the difference in return between a chosen investment and one that is necessarily passed up. To say it differently, you gave up the opportunity of another investment to put your money in an alternative investment and there is a cost associated with making that decision. In other words, it helps you measure a trade-off.

Do you live in the United States but want to explore buying commercial property or a retirement or vacation home in a foreign country? When it comes to purchasing property overseas, U.S. Investors must always consider the opportunity cost and those who have invested would say the trade-off is worth it.




When it comes to Africa, South Africa is at the top of the rest of the African continent in offering prime real estate for investment purposes. Since apartheid is no longer legal, a major trend in the housing market is that home ownership is becoming more representative of the South African population. Home buying among the blacks, Asians, and other non-whites is on the rise. In addition, South African law permits foreigners to purchase or own real property in South Africa. Even though the political climate appears unattractive when viewing or listening to reports in the media, real estate professionals in the business of selling realty in South Africa have indicated that foreigners, particularly, Americans are still buying. In fact, some of the best prime property with awesome views of the sea, Table Mountain and Robben Island, is owned by foreign investors.

There is East, West, North and South Africa. Sure one can speculate and debate about international markets, the politics, wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes, famine, the future, etc. But no one has ever debated that the continent of Africa is the place for gold, diamonds and prime real estate. If interested in international investing, why not begin looking for prime real estate in South Africa? With the income from your ROI (return on investment), perhaps you can buy a diamond or a gold mine.

As of 2012 total South African real estate was valued at approximately $604 Billion ( http://www.worldpropertychannel.com/middle-east-africa-commercial-news/property-sector-charter-company-portia-tau-sekati-south-african-property-owners-association-cape-town-real-estate-market-6136.php ); and most recent reports indicate that green buildings are gaining in popularity. International real estate investing is definitely not for the faint of heart. But if you want a reliable information resource to begin your education, SouthAfrica.info ( http://SouthAfrica.info/ ) is an all-in-one official gateway to South Africa and supplies comprehensive country information for investors, tourists, citizens and South Africans abroad.

The next YouTube could be a site where people watch other people play video games | Quartz (qz.com)

"It sounds like the worst nightmare of a 21st-century parent. Not only are the kids addicted to video games, they aren’t even playing the games themselves. Instead, they’re sitting in front of the computer watching other people play. Where, oh where, did we go wrong?  ... "

One could argue that it's just a form of entertainment like watching television.  But that's not even close to what this article is saying.  Because this article is not addressing adverse effects on the psyche of a child or young adult, or social responsibility implications.  It's just business.
