SOUTH AFRICA: PRETORIA: STUDENTS CLASH WITH RIOT POLICE
 
02:48
English/Nat South African riot police have fired tear gas and rubber bullets during a tense standoff between black and white students in Pretoria. Three people were injured in the group of mainly black students who were protesting over interest charges on late tuition fees. The violence came against a backdrop of rising racial tension on the college campus. In a scene reminiscent of the `old' South Africa, riot police were called to Pretoria's Technikon College Thursday to control a tense standoff between black and white students. Trouble first erupted on Wednesday when nearly 400 mostly black students wrecked several classrooms, protesting against interest charges on late tuition fees. It led to a tense standoff between black and white groups at the college, which has a history of racial violence in recent years. Police fired off a barrage of rubber bullets and tear gas, scattering the black students. Three protestors were injured -- concerned classmates did their best to tend their wounds while waiting for help. Once again, South Africa's racial divide was there for all to see. UPSOUND: (English) "You whites, you don't want to communicate with us. Only what you are looking for here is to attack us. Whereas we the black, we want to get a reconciliation between you and us." "Yes, we too. This is our, yours and mine. Why do you have to throw down dustbins and break down classes?" SUPERCAPTION: protestors The police managed to keep apart the rival groups of white and black students - many of whom were clearly armed and prepared for trouble. The College authorities held an emergency meeting to try to restore peace.

Surat Maryam (Mary) Arabic and English translation and transliteration #-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#- Period of Revelation Mecca Introduction The Surah opens with the Bismillah and five Arabic letters: Kaf Ha Ya 'Ayn Sad. The remaining 97 ayat can then be divided into three primary sections. Section 1 (Verses 2-40) consists of the narrative of the prophet Zachariah and the birth of his son John, the story of Mary and the birth of her son Jesus, and a commentary on Jesus's true identity which rejects the Christian claim that he is God's son. Section 2 (Verses 41-65) tells of Abraham's departure from his family's idolatrous ways and then references many other prophets. The text discusses the various responses of those who heard their prophecy and the fates those hearers met; throughout these descriptions, the oneness of God is emphasized. Section 3 (Verses 66-98) he third section, verses 66-98, confirms the reality of resurrection and offers depictions of the Day of Judgment alongside depictions of this life. Maryam (Mary), the figure from whom this Surah takes its name, is the only female referred to by name in the entire Qur'an. The text of the sura alludes to many known prophetic figures, including Isaac, Jacob, Moses, Aaron, Ishmael, Idris, Adam, and Noah. #-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#- English Translation: Sahih International Arabic Reciter: Mishari ibn Rashid al-`Afasy English Reciter: Ibrahim Walk Text: Quran.com: http://quran.com/19 Download MP3's: http://quranicaudio.com/download/quran/58 #-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#- The Meaning Of Islam Website: http://www.themeaningofislam.org Blog: http://www.blog.themeaningofislam.org Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/themeaningofislam Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/meaningofislam YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/themeaningofislam #-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#-#- **Note on the Arabic text** While every effort has been made for the Arabic text to be correct, it has been copied from Quran.com's text and therefore some letters might look different due to the font change.

Justine Mahoney: Tainted
 
34:09
Justine Mahoney’s sculptures and collages have captivated audiences for their deceptively innocent approach to exploring the dark side of human existence. Drawing inspiration from the disparate realities of growing up white in 1970s Johannesburg during some of the most tumultuous decades of South African apartheid, Mahoney is deeply influenced by her childhood experiences. In Tainted, her 2017 exhibition, Mahoney explores emotional and physical states of struggle through convoys of toy-like sculptures. These childlike figures — referred to by the artist as “an army of toy soldiers” — offer an inspired view into this world of collaged fantasy, with themes centered on her own observations of gender, landscape, aspiration, and oppression. “I portray emotional states like resilience and braveness in the face of adversity, and see my child soldiers as standing steadfast and strong…Their role is to bring on a sense of one’s ability to move forward through extreme situations.” Julian McGowan of the Southern Guild Gallery aptly describes it as “Malice in Wonderland.” Mahoney is a graduate of Technikon Witwatersrand (’91). Supported by the University of Michigan Museum of Art, the Institute for the Humanities, and Chelsea River Gallery.

Somero Uganda: ''Stop Child Exploitation through Education and Livelihood'' SCREAM
 
03:10
Child labour is about the exploitation of the most vulnerable in our society - children. There are more than 246 million children under the age of 18 who go to work each day around the world. Nearly three-quarters of them - almost 180 million - toil in hazardous and life-threatening conditions. With this in mind, Somero Uganda is implementing a project "Stop Child Exploitation through Education and Livelihood" as funded by TDH (Terre des homes). The video represents the SCREAM (Supporting Children's Rights through Education, the Arts and the Media) workshops with identified exploited children & children at risk from Bwaise and Kamwookya districts, Kampala.

The British term polytechnic usually refers to an applied higher education institution that does not award doctorates. This term appeared in the early 19th century from the French École Polytechnique, an engineering school founded in 1794 in Paris. The French term comes from the Greek πολύ (polú or polý) meaning "many" and τεχνικός (tekhnikós) meaning "technical".

It is the provincial capital and largest city of Gauteng, which is the wealthiest province in South Africa. While Johannesburg is not one of South Africa's three capital cities, it is the seat of the Constitutional Court. The city is located in the mineral-rich Witwatersrand range of hills and is the centre of large-scale gold and diamond trade.The metropolis is an alpha global city as listed by the Globalization and World Cities Research Network. In 2011, the population of the city of Johannesburg was 4,434,827, making it the most populous city in South Africa. In the same year, the population of Johannesburg's urban agglomeration was put at 7,860,781. The land area of the municipal city (1,645 km2 (635 sq mi)) is large in comparison with those of other major cities, resulting in a moderate population density of 2,364/km2 (6,120/sq mi). The city was established in 1886 following the discovery of gold on what had been a farm. The city is commonly interpreted as the modern day El Dorado due to the extremely large gold deposit found along the Witwatersrand. The name is attributed to one or all of three men involved in the establishment of the city. In ten years, the population grew to 100,000 inhabitants. A separate city from the late 1970s until 1994, Soweto is now part of Johannesburg. Originally an acronym for "South-Western Townships", Soweto originated as a collection of settlements on the outskirts of Johannesburg, populated mostly by native African workers from the gold mining industry. Soweto, although eventually incorporated into Johannesburg, had been separated as a residential area for Blacks, who were not permitted to live in Johannesburg proper. Lenasia is predominantly populated by English-speaking South Africans of Indian descent. These areas were designated as non-white areas in accordance with the segregationist policies of the South African government known as Apartheid.

As South Africa's last head of state from the era of white-minority rule, he and his government dismantled the apartheid system and introduced universal suffrage. Ideologically a conservative and an economic liberal, he led the National Party from 1989 to 1997. Born in Johannesburg, British Dominion of South Africa, to an influential Afrikaner family, de Klerk studied at Potchefstroom University before pursuing a legal career. Joining the National Party, to which he had family ties, he was elected to parliament and sat in the white-minority government of P. W. Botha, holding a succession of ministerial posts. As a minister, he supported and enforced apartheid, a system of racial segregation that privileged white South Africans. After Botha succumbed to ill health, in 1989 de Klerk replaced him, first as leader of the National Party and then as State President. Although observers expected him to continue Botha's defence of apartheid, de Klerk decided to end the policy. He was aware that growing ethnic animosity and violence was leading South Africa into a racial civil war. Amid this violence, the state security forces committed widespread human rights abuses and encouraged violence between Xhosa and Zulu, although de Klerk later denied sanctioning such actions. He permitted anti-apartheid marches to take place, legalised a range of previously banned anti-apartheid political parties, and freed imprisoned anti-apartheid activists, including Nelson Mandela. He also dismantled South Africa's nuclear weapons program. De Klerk negotiated with Mandela to fully dismantle apartheid and establish a transition to universal suffrage. In 1993, he publicly apologised for apartheid's harmful effects, although not for apartheid itself. He oversaw the 1994 multi-racial election in which Mandela led the African National Congress (ANC) to victory; the National Party took second place with 20% of the vote. After the election, de Klerk became a Deputy President in Mandela's ANC-led coalition, the Government of National Unity. In this position, he supported the government's liberal economic policies. De Klerk had desired a total amnesty for political crimes committed under apartheid and opposed the Truth and Reconciliation Commission set up to investigate past human rights abuses by both pro and anti-apartheid groups. His working relationship with Mandela was strained, although he later spoke fondly of him. In May 1996, after the National Party objected to the new constitution, de Klerk withdrew it from the coalition government; the party disbanded the following year and reformed as the New National Party. In 1997, he retired from active politics and since then has lectured internationally. De Klerk is a controversial figure. His role in dismantling apartheid and introducing universal suffrage to South Africa brought him international recognition and praise, including the Félix Houphouët-Boigny Peace Prize in 1991, the Prince of Asturias Award in 1992, and the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993. Anti-apartheid figures criticised him for offering only a qualified apology for apartheid and for ignoring the human rights abuses carried out by his state security forces, while the white right-wing accused him of betraying South Africa's white minority by abandoning apartheid.
