    China's Special Envoy for the Horn of Africa, Xue Bing, wrapped up a two-day peace conference in Addis Ababa last week, Beijing's first-ever effort to mediate conflicts outside of Asia. Xue personally offered to serve as a broker to help resolve many of the ongoing tensions that currently roil the region.Superficially, all of the participants responded favorably to China's efforts but the real test will come in the months ahead to see if Beijing can match its promises with tangible results.Aly Verjee, a non-resident senior advisor at the United States Institute of Peace, is a leading expert in the politics of the Horn of Africa. He joins Cobus to share his impressions of China's performance at the conference and whether he thinks Beijing has what it takes to help mediate the region's various conflicts.JOIN THE DISCUSSION:Twitter: @ChinaGSProject| @stadenesque | @alyverjeeFacebook: www.facebook.com/ChinaAfricaProjectFOLLOW CAP IN FRENCH AND ARABIC:Français: www.projetafriquechine.com | @AfrikChineعربي: www.akhbaralsin-africia.com | @AkhbarAlSinAfrJOIN US ON PATREON!Become a CAP Patreon member and get all sorts of cool stuff including our Week in Review report, an invitation to join monthly Zoom calls with Eric & Cobus, and even an awesome new CAP Podcast mug!www.patreon.com/chinaafricaprojectSee Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

    It is Friday morning, 24th June 2022, and this is your friend, Angus Buchan, with a thought for today.Exodus 20:15 simply says:“You shall not steal.”'It is one of the commandments of the Bible. Stealing is such a deplorable thing... I was having my quiet time in the bush outside a little thatched cottage that Jill and I had booked, and I was at total peace. It was early in the morning and I was taking in the glory of God, listening to the sounds of the African bush and the beautiful, peaceful creation of God. Suddenly, a huge vervet monkey pounced on my table. In a flash, he stole a bright yellow banana that I was looking forward to eating. As amusing as this may sound, it broke right through my time of solitary meditation with the Master. I was having a wonderful time with the Lord.That commandment, “Thou shalt not steal” made a big practical impact on my life. It is not just the stealing, but the infringement on one's privacy that is saddening.My prayer for you and me today is, “Father God, let us not do that.” I have done it as an unbeliever and even as a believer. It's not about stealing physical things but time, ideas of others, emotions and even attitudes, most of all, stealing time from our loved ones. Men, please spend time with your wives. Don't steal time that belongs to them. Spend time with your husband. Spend time with your children because time is passing away and before you blink they will grow up and be living their own lives.In Matthew 26:40, Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane. He came to the disciples and found them sleeping, He said to Peter:“What! Could you not watch with Me one hour?”Don't steal time from God. He so desperately wants to help and spend time with you. Have a wonderful day and remember, stealing is unacceptable. Jesus bless you and goodbye.

    Why are non-African monkeypox cases causing concern? Also, the first complete human genome from a Pompeiian cadaver, and how YouTube is aiding animal behaviourists. As cases of monkeypox appear strangely dispersed around Europe and elsewhere in the world outside of Africa, BBC health and science correspondent James Gallagher outlines to Vic the symptoms and some of the mysterious elements of this outbreak. In Pompeii, scientists have for the first time managed to sequence the whole genome of an individual killed by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79AD. Serena Viva of the University of Salento describes the site of two individual's tragic demise all that time ago, one female aged around 50 years, and a younger male, both leaning on a couch in a dining room. Geneticist Gabriele Scorrano describes how the ancient DNA (aDNA) was preserved and extracted, and how the male individual's genome was so well preserved it could be sequenced in full. As they suggest this week in Nature, there weren't too many surprises in what they found, but the ability to do this sort of science opens up a new era of Pompeiian archaeological treasure. Faced with covid lockdowns and unable to observe in the wild, elephant conservationists Nachiketha Sharma and Sanjeeta Sharma Pocharel decided to see if videos uploaded to YouTube could enlighten science on rare behaviours of Asian elephants. African Elephants are known to have a strange fascination, even respect, for the death of other elephant individuals, especially those near to their families such as calves and parents. Asian elephants' thanatological (death related) behaviour is less well observed however. But the researchers turned to videos of strange grieving-like behaviour to begin a catalogue of the different reactions such as carrying dead calves, standing guard, or vocalizing. They dedicate their work, published by the Royal Society, to the elephants involved. This sort of research, using video observations captured and shared by members of the public are proving rather useful to zoologists and animal behaviourists. Ximena Nelson of the University of Canterbury in New Zealand was one of the first scientists to suggest the usefulness of trawling the internet for odd video of animals and explains a bit more to Vic.

    If you like things orderly, we have bad news for you - our universe is lopsided. Based on everything we know about gravity and the early universe, we'd expect galaxies to be distributed symmetrically - but they're not. Something spooky's going on, and the team searches for answers.The activity of the Sun may be affecting our heart health. Sometimes the weather on the Sun gets a little chaotic, and the team discusses new research that suggests these solar storms are messing with our heart rhythms, raising the risk of heart attacks.African pouched rats are being trained as heroes. Donning special little backpacks, they will use their keen sense of smell to go on search and rescue missions.

    In Why We Fight: The Roots of War and the Paths to Peace (Viking, 2022), Chris Blattman explains the five reasons why conflict (rarely) blooms into war, and how to interrupt that deadly process. It's easy to overlook the underlying strategic forces of war, to see it solely as a series of errors, accidents, and emotions gone awry. It's also easy to forget that war shouldn't happen-and most of the time it doesn't. Around the world, there are millions of hostile rivalries, yet only a tiny fraction erupt into violence. Too many accounts of conflict forget this. With a counterintuitive approach, Blattman reminds us that most rivals loathe one another in peace. That's because war is too costly to fight. Enemies almost always find it better to split the pie than spoil it or struggle over thin slices. So, in those rare instances when fighting ensues, we should ask: what kept rivals from compromising?  Why We Fight draws on decades of economics, political science, psychology, and real-world interventions to lay out the root causes and remedies for war, showing that violence is not the norm; that there are only five reasons why conflict wins over compromise; and how peacemakers turn the tides through tinkering, not transformation. From warring states to street gangs, ethnic groups and religious sects to political factions, there are common dynamics to heed and lessons to learn. Along the way, we meet vainglorious European monarchs, African dictators, Indian mobs, Nazi pilots, British football hooligans, ancient Greeks, and fanatical Americans. Realistic and optimistic, this is a book that lends new meaning to the old adage, "Give peace a chance." Javier Mejia is an economist teaching at Stanford University, whose work focuses on the intersection between social networks and economic history. His interests extend to topics on entrepreneurship and political economy with a geographical specialty in Latin America and the Middle East. He received a Ph.D. in Economics from Los Andes University. He has been a Postdoctoral Associate and Lecturer at New York University--Abu Dhabi and a Visiting Scholar at the University of Bordeaux.

    As a young man in his native Benin, Leonard Wantchekon was arrested for leading a student uprising against the repressive government, tortured in prison, and 18 months later escaped from prison into Nigeria. Nearly four decades later, he is now a Princeton economist and the founder of the African School of Economics. But the experiences and observations from his astonishing early life embedded themselves into his work in economics—not just his research, but his mission to educate a new generation of African economists. Leonard speaks with Cardiff about those formative events, and then they discuss the following research papers published by Leonard: — “Education and Human Capital Externalities: Evidence from Colonial Benin” [Co-authored with Marko Klasˇnja and Natalija Novta] — “The Curse of Good Soil? Land Fertility, Roads, and Rural Poverty in Africa” [Co-authored with Piero Stanig] — “The Slave Trade and the Origins of Mistrust in Africa” [Co-authored with Nathan Nunn]And they also discuss Leonard's goals as founder of The African School of Economics, and why it's so important for African students economists to be taken more seriously inside the economics profession.

    There's been a noticeable change in the images of Africa we are now seeing on our screens. These pictures are so different from the ones the media has often shown of the continent. Gone are the children looking desolate and hungry with extended bellies, surrounded by flies, now it's the images of rich, beautiful and increasingly famous people, living their best lives for the world to see. This is the new opulent and glitzy reality world of African celebrities who are unapologetic about their wealth and riches. It's a world of reality TV shows where we are given a front seat to the fights and dramas from the private lives of African stars, just as we've seen over the years with American reality programmes. Reality shows in Africa aren't anything new. The Big Brother franchise, one of the first reality TV programmes in the world, has been on-going on the continent for decades. So with shows like The Real Housewives of Lagos, Durban, Cape Town and the recent Netflix hit, Young, Famous and African, showing the opulent lives of rich Africans, is this the golden age of glitzy and glamourous African reality shows?

    Bees With Ben

    Bees With Ben

    Kris Fricke is our featured guest on episode 94 of the Bees with Ben podcast. Kris became a professional apiarist in 2005 and has kept bees in both California and Australia - at one time maintaining more than 500 hives. He has also worked with bees on projects in various parts of the African continent, amongst other destinations. In 2015, Kris founded Bee Aid International after attending a conference on African Beekeeping held in Arusha, Tanzania. He realised that there were many communities desperate for quality training, but a general lack of government funding for these local projects. Thinking outside the square, Kris decided to seek alternative funding through charitable donations. Citing impact reports that indicate a 56-66% increase in income for the entire community for previously completed projects, Kris believes that beekeeping is the epitome of the ‘teach a man to fish' proverb. Every member of the community can benefit: beekeepers can create a new avenue of self-employed income; they may also train others in the art; carpenters may specialise in the construction of hives; garment makers can fashion protective clothing; and metalsmiths can manufacture tools. And then there are the retailers who take the honey to market, as well as the cottage industry that can develop around a range of products made from beeswax. Kris' ambition is to one day be able to work on development projects full time. Kris also hosts a podcast entitled The Apinautica, which is part travelogue, part documentation of his beekeeping exploits in developing countries. Ben recently caught up with Kris at the Australian Bee Congress in Sydney and arranged to interview him for this podcast. The podcast starts in a very unusual way - no spoilers but this has never happened to us before and is unlikely to ever again.
