With a population of 15 million, Lagos is the biggest city on the continent. But by the end of the century, it's predicted to become the most populous city in the world. And it isn't the only rapidly growing city in Africa. It's predicted that by the turn of the century, Africa will be home to 13 out of the 20 biggest cities. And many of these will be megacities - urban centres with a population of more than 10 million people. But what will life be like in these places? And can we cope with such rapid urban growth? #AfricaDaily

David Satori (@davidsatori) is one of the Beats Antique trio and co-creator of the band, Dirtwire. Born in Burlington VT, David was inspired by the rich local music scene and started playing guitar and drums at the age of 13. David produced his first original album with his band Bubble Tribe in 1997 as a senior in high school and went on to study music at CalArts in Los Angeles, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Composition and Performance in 2001. After college David bought an aging airport shuttle bus, converted it to run on vegetable oil and toured the US with his bands The Funnies, a four piece space funk band, and Aphrodesia, a female fronted futuristic Afrobeat big band from San Francisco. David also co-founded and produced events with The Sustainable Living Roadshow, a traveling eco festival. In 2006 David helped organize a month long West African Tour with Aphrodesia and the African Showboyz from Ghana, which culminated in twonights at the legendary Shrine in Lagos, Nigeria, the musical home of Femi Kuti, son of Fela Kuti. After returning from West Africa David committed to recording with Beats Antique, a trio born in the San Francisco performance underground, Burning Man and West Coast Bass music scenes. Beats Antique soon became an international touring production and has released over 10 albums in 12 years, all written and produced by the band. On a parallel track to Beats Antique David pursued a recording project with his long-time bandmate and friend Evan Fraser, which evolved into Dirtwire, a trio with the addition of Mark Revely, that tours internationally and has released 9 albums. Davidsatori.comIf you dig this podcast, would you be please leave a short review on Apple Podcasts?

In 2020, ride-hailing startups in Lagos, Nigeria, were dealt a huge blow – the Lagos State government had placed a ban on all motorcycles in the state. Consequently, these startups saw operations halted, and a few pivoted to other sectors to stay afloat. Interestingly, only a few days before the announcement, some members of the ride-hailing sector were seen with government officials. The relationship between Nigerian startups and regulators has been bumpy, with startups constantly being thrown regulatory curveballs. With this in mind, a bill – the Nigerian Startup Bill – was created to create an enabling environment for startups. On today's podcast, we had Oswald Osaretin Guobadia, Senior Special Assistant to the Nigerian President and Timi Olagunju, tech lawyer and policy analyst, join our reporters to discuss the bill and what it portends for Nigerian startups.

"Cuando se está en una discusión de un asunto tan serio, uno tiene que ser respetuoso de las cosas que dicen las personas", indicó Arriagada, agregando que lo que apunta Lagos "es absolutamente coherente"; Sobre el análisis que diversos economistas e investigadores realizaron sobre el supuesto costo que tendría la implementación de la nueva Constitución, el ex ministro Nicolás Eyzaguirre (PPD) dijo que "si uno se mete en ese cálculo, se da cuenta que el grueso de todo eso son cuestiones que, por lo menos en teoría, concitan un consenso transversal" tanto si gana el Apruebo o se "Rechaza para reformar".

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K408: About aviation - World's fastest passenger jet goes supersonic in tests   The race to resume supersonic passenger flights nearly two decades after the retirement of Concorde was offered a glimmer of excitement on Monday when plane manufacturer Bombardier revealed high speed achievements while confirming the launch of its new business jet. 飛機製造商龐巴迪週一揭露其最新商務噴射客機達到的高速度成果,同時證實上市時間,為協和號退役將近20年後,重拾超音速載客飛行的競賽,注入一絲興奮。 The Canadian company said the in-development Global 8000 will be "the world's fastest and longest-range purpose-built business jet." 這家加拿大公司說,這款開發中的「環球8000型」客機,將是「全世界最快、最長程的特製商用噴射機」。 The news comes after a Global 7500 test vehicle broke the sound barrier during a demonstration flight last May, achieving speeds of more than Mach 1.015. 在發布這項消息前,一架環球7500型測試機,在去年5月一次試飛中突破音障,達到超過1.015馬赫的速度。 "The Global 8000 aircraft leverages the outstanding attributes of the Global 7500 aircraft, providing our customers with a flagship aircraft of a new era," Éric Martel, president and CEO for Bombardier, said. 龐巴迪總裁兼執行長馬泰爾說,「環球8000飛機利用環球7500型的優異特性,提供我們顧客一架新年代飛機的佼佼者」。   Next Article   Teen survives flight in aircraft wheel in Nigeria 奈及利亞青少年躲起落架搭機 大難不死   A young teenager dashed across a runway at a Nigerian airport, hid in the wheel well of a jet and survived a 35-minute domestic flight, the airline and aviation authorities said Sunday. 航空公司和奈及利亞聯邦航空局週日表示,1名青少年橫衝機場跑道,躲進飛機起落架艙,飛了35分鐘的國內線航程。 Passengers and crew had alerted the pilots that a boy was seen running to the plane as it was taxiing to take off Saturday from southern Benin City, Arik Airline spokesman Ola Adebanji said. 阿里克航空公司發言人艾德班吉表示,這架班機週六從南部貝南市滑行準備起飛時,乘客和機組員看到1名青少年跑向飛機,並警告機師。 Despite the possible presence of the boy, the pilots opted to continue with their takeoff, Federal Aviation Agency of Nigeria spokesman Yakubu Dati said. 奈及利亞聯邦航空局發言人達蒂表示,儘管男孩可能在機上,機師仍選擇繼續起飛。 When the plane arrived in Lagos, Nigeria's commercial capital, a boy aged 13 or 14 jumped to the ground from the wheel and was detained by Arik personnel, Adebanji said. He said the teenager probably survived because the flight was short and the plane probably didn't rise above 7,620 meters. 艾德班吉表示,飛機抵達奈吉利亞商業大城拉哥斯時,1名年約13或14歲的男孩從起落架跳到地面,被地勤人員抓住。發言人說,男孩大難不死可能是因為飛行距離不長、飛行高度沒有超過7620公尺。 Most stowaways don't survive. The body of a suspected stowaway fell from an Air France plane over Niger, also in West Africa, in July and was discovered lifeless in a western suburb of the capital, Niamey, officials said. 這類偷渡客大都不會生還。官員表示,7月間,法國航空公司1架班機飛經同樣也在西非的尼日時,1具疑似偷渡客的屍體從上空墜地,陳屍在首都尼阿美西部郊區。Source article: https://features.ltn.com.tw/english/article/paper/1526935 ; https://news.ltn.com.tw/news/world/paper/710523

 While his wife was out of town, a 57-year-old man allegedly killed her parents. A death investigation was reported in the 500 block of Cherry Road shortly before 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 2, according to a news release from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office. WPEC-TV reports that authorities found Gabriela Lagos' parents' bodies at the scene. Lagos' father was found "laying on his back with severe blunt force trauma to his face" in the living room. The mother was found nude on her knees in the back bedroom, with severe blunt force trauma on her torso, arms, and face. Lagos was out of town and her husband, Guillermo Silva, stayed home to take care of her parents, according to WPEC. Silva was identified as the suspect by authorities. When Lagos arrived home, her husband said, "Turn the camera on, turn the camera on, I want to show you something." I can't believe him. He's a monster, that he can do that to two old people." Lagos also added, "He recorded videos for me, so I could see my parents dead. I can't believe it." A son of Lagos allegedly discovered the bodies when he arrived home to drop off money for his parents. Silva attempted to attack the son with a knife, but the son fought back and held Silva down until authorities arrived. Silva was questioned by deputies and said he did not "remember killing" Lagos' parents. He reportedly told them he had gotten into an argument with them after drinking all day. At the time of the killings, Lagos' adopted 11-year-old son was allegedly inside the home unharmed.

#216 Señora Lunt de Hugh Walpole

Relatos de Misterio y Suspense

Señora Lunt (Mrs. Lunt) es un relato de fantasmas del escritor británico Hugh Walpole (1884-1941), publicado originalmente en la antología de 1926: El libro de los fantasmas. Posteriormente sería reeditado en varias colecciones clásicas del género, entre ellas: Historias de fantasmas; 65 grandes cuentos de lo sobrenatural; Marea del horror; El libro del horror de H.P. Lovecraft y Cuando los cementerios bostezan. Señora Lunt, uno de los grandes cuentos de Hugh Walpole, relata la historia de un joven escritor, llamado Runciman, que pasa un fin de semana en la vieja mansión victoriana de su mecenas, el señor Lunt, el cual está siendo acosado por el fantasma de su esposa. ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡SPOILERS.!!!!!!! Es fácil entender por qué H.P. Lovecraft consideraba a Señora Lunt como uno de los mejores relatos de fantasmas de la literatura británica. Hugh Walpole [perteneciente a la misma familia que el fundador de la literatura gótica, Horace Walpole, autor de El castillo de Otranto (The Castle of Otranto)] construye hábilmente esta breve historia espeluznante donde lo que sucede es casi anecdótico, y donde la atmósfera y la ambientación lo son todo. El narrador de la historia es Runciman, un novelista, que visita a otro escritor, Robert Lunt, a petición de éste tras la muerte de su esposa. Aunque los dos hombres nunca se han visto personalmente [la relación hasta ese momento había sido epistolar], Runciman comienza a idealizar la amistad potencial de Lunt y está entusiasmado con la oportunidad de conocer a un autor bien establecido. Por supuesto, las cosas no salen según lo planeado. Tras un primer encuentro en una antigua mansión, Lunt comienza a comportarse de manera extraña, errática, sobre todo cuando Runciman le comenta que ha conocido a su ama de llaves, una mujer silenciosa que se presentó en sus habitaciones. Lunt, sin aliento, afirma que no hay ninguna mujer en la casa. Muchos de los relatos de Hugh Walpole tienen una corriente subyacente de tristeza, incluso de añoranza. Probablemente esto tenga que ver con el hecho de que era homosexual [hablaremos sobre eso más adelante] en una época en la que serlo era ilegal en Gran Bretaña, y este parece ser el conflicto que ondula bajo la superficie de Señora Lunt: la represión forzada [y necesaria para sobrevivir socialmente] de Hugh Walpole [ver: Atrapado en el cuerpo equivocado: la identidad de género en el Horror] La expectativa de Runciman de conocer a un hombre mayor y venerable [el señor Lunt], el intrigante contacto físico entre ambos, la vulnerabilidad que los subyuga, agregan una intrigante profundidad a la historia al resonar con la propia vida de Hugh Walpole. Hay poderosos y sorprendentes momentos de genuina ternura entre Runciman y Lunt: [«Allí nos sentamos, yo en una silla cercana a la suya, tomados de la mano, como una pareja de enamorados; pero en verdad éramos dos hombres aterrorizados, temerosos de lo que venía»] De algún modo, Hugh Walpole logró evitar la censura y la condena pública al hacer que Runciman rechace estos sentimientos por Lunt, pero sobre todo debido a la atmósfera opresiva y terrorífica de Señora Lunt, la cual devora cualquier otro aspecto, incluso uno tan polémico para la época como el amor entre dos hombres. Sin embargo, aún en esa ambientación terrorífica, que emplea de forma eficaz todos los recursos del relato de fantasmas, Hugh Walpole añade otra dimensión a la fisicalidad de la historia al poner hábilmente el acento en lo sensorial, no tanto en lo que realmente sucede. El olfato, el tacto, el oído, son mucho más importantes aquí que la aparición fantasmal de la Señora Lunt [ver: Lo olfativo, lo visual, lo auditivo y lo táctil en el Horror] Si tuviésemos que resumir brutalmente el argumento de Señora Lunt, debiéramos decir que se trata de la historia de la venganza del espíritu de una mujer asesinada por su marido, siendo testigo el narrador, Runciman. Sin embargo, lo mejor sucede bajo la superficie, en los rincones oscuros, en las insinuaciones [ver: Casas como metáfora de la psique en el Horror] Muchos de los relatos de Hugh Walpole son claramente autobiográficos, y Señora Lunt no es la excepción. En sus historias, el protagonista [o narrador] es a menudo un escritor que ansía o busca un tutor, un modelo a seguir, generalmente un hombre mayor. Por supuesto, lo sobrenatural está explícito, pero lo más interesante siempre es la trama de sutilezas y complejidades psicológicas que acompañan este tipo de relaciones, no solo entre dos hombres, sino entre dos hombres que además son escritores. Ya en el primer párrafo de Señora Lunt, Hugh Walpole nos permite echar un vistazo a este conflicto: [«¿Crees en fantasmas? —tuve que hacerle esta pregunta tan trivial más porque era un hombre difícil para pasar una hora con él que por cualquier otra razón. ¿Conoces sus libros?: El corredor, El olmo, Cristal, A la luz de las velas. Es uno de esos hombres constantes en esta época de inmensa superproducción de libros, hombres que publican su novela cada otoño, que despiertan en ciertos críticos el aprecio y el elogio, que tienen un público reducido y fiel, y que cuando te encuentras con ellos tienen poco que decir. Suelen ser tímidos y nerviosos, pesimistas y alejados de la vida cotidiana. Tales hombres hacen un buen trabajo, ganan muy poco, y quizás cincuenta años después de su muerte son redescubiertos por algún crítico inquisitivo y se convierten en una especie de culto con una nueva generación»] Esa ansiedad insinuada sobre el mérito literario se vuelve aún más evidente en El Tarn (The Tarn), donde dos escritores se conocen desde su juventud, pero mientras uno, Foster, se ha convertido en un escritor célebre, el otro, Fenwick, ha caído en la oscuridad. Hugh Walpole cuenta la historia desde el punto de vista de Fenwick, investigando un odio que se ha enquistado en él durante muchas décadas, desde que la novela de Foster se llevó la gloria que debería haber pertenecido [en opinión de Fenwick] a su propia obra maestra. Sin embargo, en las orillas de este lago, la venganza está al alcance de la mano. El aislamiento entre dos hombres con sentimientos conflictivos también está presente en Señora Lunt, aunque no hay animosidad mutua. Aquí, la que busca vengarse es la señora Lunt, asesinada por su esposo un año antes. Como fantasma hay que decir que la señora Lunt es muy discreta. Hace un par de apariciones fugaces, y al final asesina a su marido [aunque los médicos aseguran que falleció a causa de un paro cardíaco] [ver: El ABC de las historias de fantasmas]. Lo más interesante de la historia, insisto, es la ambientación y la relación entre estos dos hombres, la cual resuena en la sucesión de relaciones intensas [pero discretas] que Hugh Walpole mantuvo con otros hombres. De hecho, esta búsqueda de Runciman de un hombre mayor que lo guíe en su carrera literaria es, literalmente, la historia de Hugh Walpole. Hugh Walpole entabló una entrañable amistad con A.C. Benson [hermano de E.F. Benson], quien declinó gentilmente sus avances. En cambio, lo puso en contacto con Henry James a fines de 1908. Siguió una frondosa correspondencia y, en febrero de 1909, Henry James invitó a Hugh Walpole a almorzar en un club de Londres. Desarrollaron una estrecha amistad, descrita por el biógrafo de Henry James, Leon Edel, como una relación de padre e hijo en algunos aspectos, «pero no en todos». Al parecer, Henry James se sintió atraído por el joven Hugh Walpole, y lo apuntaló en sus primeros esfuerzos literarios. Según Somerset Maugham [y no hay razones para pensar que miente], Hugh Walpole le hizo una propuesta sentimental a Henry James, quien «estaba demasiado inhibido para responder». Sin embargo, en su correspondencia, la devoción del anciano por su joven protegido se expresaba «en términos extravagantes» [ver: ¡Este hombre me pertenece!] Hay que decir que Hugh Walpole eventualmente encontró a este «amigo perfecto», un policía casado, con quien se instaló en el Distrito de los Lagos. Habiendo buscado ansiosamente, en su juventud, el apoyo de autores ya establecidos, en sus últimos años Hugh Walpole fue un generoso mecenas de muchos escritores jóvenes. Su riquísima vida demandaría un estudio mucho más profundo, pero a modo de ejemplo baste decir que, entre otras cosas, visitó el frente de Polonia, recuperando muertos y heridos del campo de batalla; y en un festival de música en la ciudad de Bayreuth, Alemania, compartió una cena con Adolf Hitler [recientemente liberado de prisión], por quien aseguró haber experimentado una mezcla de atracción y desprecio.
