Federal republic in West Africa
It's been a year since the last episode was released, and it feels right to drop this today, on the first anniversary of the October 20 massacre at the Lekki toll gate in Lagos, Nigeria. I appreciate your patience during this period. In These Moments coming back soon. If you want to share a story […]
One year ago frustration with police brutality in Nigeria boiled over into massive street demonstrations. Much of the anger was directed at the notorious Special Anti Robbery Squad - or SARS. And soon the slogan “End SARS” was being heard around the world. So, where does Nigeria stand now 12 months on? Host: Alan Kasujja (@Kasujja on Twitter) - that's with 2 ‘j's Guests: Hamzat Lawal an anti corruption activist, photographer Enyene and author Ike Anya. #AfricaDaily
Blessing grew up in Lagos, Nigeria. She was determined to dream big and be successful in spite of the societal expectations that boys went to school and pursued careers and women prepared to stay at home. Blessing came to the USA for college and pursued chemical engineering. Once she entered the male dominated profession, she learned to stand up and advocate for herself and other working moms. Blessing continues that work through Mother Honestly- a community that brings together women and empowers them to stop comparing themselves to others and start defining their own success.
Nigeria sprudelt über vor Lebensfreude, Kreativität und Fortschrittsglaube. Einerseits. Andererseits leiden das Land und seine Menschen an korrupten Strukturen, Terror und Umweltzerstörung. Von Seele, Geist und (Gemüts)-Zustand der nigerianischen Gesellschaft handeln auch die Lieder des Deutsch-Nigerianischen Musikers Adé Bantu. Mit seiner Band „Bantu“ hält er Nigeria den Spiegel vor – und bleibt trotz aller Widrigkeiten immer optimistisch. Ihren Optimismus findet Tobore Ovuorie nur langsam wieder. 2013 recherchierte die vielfach ausgezeichnete investigative Journalistin zum Thema Menschen- und Organhandel. Für die Recherchen infiltrierte sie als vermeintliche Prostituierte einen Menschenhändlerring. Ihre Geschichte sorgte für einen Aufschrei, nicht nur in Nigeria - aber die Autorin zahlte dafür auch einen hohen Preis. Über Ihre schockierenden und traumatischen Erlebnisse hat sie mit uns gesprochen.

Sans Papiers und Opfer von Menschenhandel. Am europäischen Tag gegen Menschenhandel diskutieren die Journalistin und Buchautorin Tanja Polli und der Stadtberner Chef der Fremdenpolizei, Alexander Ott, über den Umgang mit diesen «Unsichtbaren» in der Gesellschaft. Die Aussicht auf ein besseres Leben lockt sie nach Europa; dass sie in der Schweiz landen, ist manchmal nur Zufall: junge Männer und Frauen. Mit falschen Versprechungen aus ihrer ärmlichen Umgebung weggelockt, landen sie oft in einer harten Realität. In der Schweiz angekommen, werden ihnen die Identitätspapiere weggenommen; ohne legale Aufenthaltserlaubnis sind sie ihren Menschenhändlern auf Gedeih und Verderben ausgeliefert. Wie viele solche «moderne Arbeitssklaven» es in der Schweiz gibt, ist nicht bekannt; etwa 300 werden jedes Jahr als Opfer von Menschenhandel identifiziert; die Dunkelziffer ist höher. Sie prostituieren sich unter erbärmlichen Umständen, putzen, kochen oder schuften auf Baustellen zu Stundenlöhnen von 3.50 Franken oder gratis. Sie kommen aus Rumänien, Bulgarien, aus Nigeria und immer öfter auch aus China. «Sans Papiers» haben manchmal eine ähnliche Geschichte. 90% der Sans-Papier arbeiten schwarz, um ein Auskommen zu haben. Sogar 50% der bezahlten Hausarbeit in der Schweiz wird von Sans-Papiers erledigt. Am europäischen Tag gegen Menschenhandel lanciert die UNO-Organisation für Migration, die IOM, in der Schweiz Aktionswochen zum Thema Menschenhandel, dieses Jahr zum Thema Ausbeutung bei der Arbeit. Wie soll mit diesen Menschen umgegangen werden? Die Politik ist sich bei den Sans Papiers nicht einig, wie ein Blick auf verschiedene politische Vorstösse zeigt. Im Tagesgespräch diskutieren zwei, die direkten Kontakt haben mit den Betroffenen. Tanja Polli ist freie Journalistin und hat ein Buch geschrieben über die Lebensgeschichten von Sans Papiers. Alexander Ott ist der Leiter des Polizeiinspektorats und Chef der Fremdenpolizei der Stadt Bern, er hat jahrzehntelange praktische Erfahrung mit dem Thema. Und hat den Nationalen Aktionsplan gegen Menschenhandel mitgestaltet.
Isha Sesay is a British journalist of Sierra Leonean descent who became a TV news star in 2014 when she led a CNN team to a Peabody award for her coverage of the kidnapping of 276 school girls in Nigeria.

What's the difference between a conspiracy theory and an accepted fact?Answer: About six months. And these days, it sure is the truth!!In this 40th episode of Season 2 of TALK JAM, we have a PACKED Political Talk segment to open:It's true that things are moving fast, so today, instead of defining a specific word or phrase, we spent our Political Talk time discussing three major developments NO ONE is talking about--we feel lucky that we found them on the Internet at all!First, a bit about South Africa, which has just filed suit in the country's highest court AGAINST ITS OWN PRESIDENT AND PARLIAMENT... here's why: https://www.trevorwinchell.com/AmericanPatriotsForum/viewtopic.phpf=110&sid=b371b375eef0870422491b8a5f3ddb54&t=5211&utm_content=13013042&utm_medium=Email&utm_name=Id&utm_source=Actionetics&utm_term=Email2.

Finally, we have interesting news from India--which reports that its largest province (230 million people) is now COVID-FREE. (They have virtually no new cases, and no deaths to report.) How did they do it--and for only $2.65 per household?? And why is NO ONE talking about it?https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2021/10/dr-campbell-reveals-reason-behind-indias-ivermectin-blackout/Kelly adds a bit about a prophetic word she thinks we all need to hear:https://rumble.com/vnbivf-barry-wunsch-djt-draw-your-sword.htmlIn our second jam, we turn to the lighter side--a reflection on some of the great sports stories of our lifetime, and how we personally reacted to them and what they meant to us--including the 1972 Olympics, the 1980 Miracle on Ice at Lake Placid, NY, the 2016 Cubs and the 2020 Super Bowl champions, the Kansas City Chiefs.

Dr. Leana Wen joined us this week to explore her personal history and its revelations, laid out in remarkably candid detail in her newly released memoir, Lifelines: A Doctor's Journey in the Fight for Public Health. And to speak to the most pressing current challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. Her childhood struggles, as a young immigrant Chinese girl living amid insecurity, taught powerful lessons about poverty, race, and health. Her tenure as Health Commissioner in Baltimore, operating in close partnership with the late Congressman Elijah Cummings, opened the way to confront opioid addiction, stigma, maternal and infant mortality, and the acute vulnerabilities of youth. In her new life in the print and cable mediascape, she follows the advice of former Senator Barbara Mikulski: “do what you are best at – and needed for.” The Biden administration needs to up its game with the public: “It's not enough just to get the science right.” It is about values, communication, and public trust. America's hardened polarization -- surrounding vaccines, masking, and distancing -- is too advanced to fix: it is best to focus on engaging individual by individual. Listen to learn more. Dr. Leana Wen is an emergency physician and public health professor at George Washington University. She is a contributing columnist at the Washington Post and a CNN medical analyst. She's served as Baltimore's Health Commissioner.
They are the first people in Ireland to be convicted of human trafficking for a prostitution ring and now Alicia Edosa and Edith Enoghaghase are finding out for themselves what it feels like to be trapped after receiving jail terms of over five years.

Nicola Tallant chats to journalist Eamon Dillon about the human sex slaves working in Irish prostitution and the profits made from putting them to work.

Daniel Kumapayi doesn't just want to create pathways toward his own artistic success - he's founded an organization called Àkójọpọ̀, which was built to support musicians in Nigeria who, despite lacking essential resources, are still committed to their own artistic successes. He chats with Garrett about the challenges of international arts philanthropy, the ways that people can support Àkójọpọ̀, and a little about his favorite (and not-so-favorite) Nigerian foods. Scott highlights the many sounds of music created by Indigenous artists, Garrett celebrates a fashion shift in orchestral performance spaces, and more. The guys close with a discussion on gun violence, the over-commodification of cannabis, and the problem of a continue reverence of Christopher Columbus.

Taking inspiration from President Kennedy's Moonshot which united people around a goal to put man on the moon and spurred the development of new technology in the 1960s, the Earthshot Prize is centred around five simple but ambitious goals for our planet. Chhavi Sachdev profiles more of the prize nominees from all around the world. This week Chhavi concentrates on the innovators working to reduce waste, provide clean water and develop clean energy solutions for communities without access to power. Japan is notoriously prone to natural disaster which makes it a perfect testing ground for disaster-management solutions. The Wota Box arose from the urgent need for clean water in locations hit by earthquakes or tsunamis. Using the latest techniques in artificial intelligence it controls a series of filters to remove pollutants and provide essential washing facilities where they're needed most. In Nigeria, Olugbenga Olubanjohas invented a portable battery which can be rented from a vending machine to power mobile phone chargers and laptops, bringing modern communication options to some of the poorest areas of Africa.

Tom O'Keefe is a social impact entrepreneur, and the founder of Stride for Stride, Heart to Cart, and Bostontweet. Stride for Stride is a non-profit running organization that buys race bibs for immigrant, BIPOC, and low-income runners. Their goal is to make races more accessible and more diverse. Tom started Stride for Stride in 2018 after struggling to pay for race bibs and observing that most races lacked diversity - his assumption was that this was due, in part, to the high cost of entry. Since 2018, Stride for Stride has grown to over 60 avid runners from over a dozen countries. They compete in everything from marathons to 5Ks, and even a 50-mile Ultra. All but two of their runners are immigrants representing the following countries; Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Colombia, Brazil, Chile, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Jamaica, Nigeria, and the United States, as well as Puerto Rico. Discussed in this episode: --Boston globe article on Bostontweet --Story of how Tom met his wife --Rosie's Place --Sid Baptista of PIONEERS Run Crew on Social Sport --Black Men Run --Black Girls Run --Latinos Run --Dominican Runners, NYC --Heart to Cart --Impact Video Group --Donate here or text STRIDE to 44321 Quotes: --“Races are the only sport where you're running with the best of the best—the professionals, like Meb and Shalane. There is no other sport where you're competing with them; you can't play football with Tom Brady. The same thing goes for wage inequity. A CEO makes 258 times what the average employee makes, which is awful, but if those two guys run the same race, the employee could beat the CEO. How empowering is that?” --“When you finish a race, you're high-fiving everyone. That's all you care about—that you ran. You're just so happy for yourself and for everyone else. Nothing else matters at that point. You're not thinking about politics or how much money you made…It changed my life, and I think it can change so many others.” Follow Tom: Twitter, Instagram Follow Stride for Stride: Twitter, Instagram Follow Social Sport: Website, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Newsletter --- Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/socialsport/support
Just how do we balance the growing demand for electricity worldwide with the need to reduce fossil fuel emissions to address climate change? In our second programme on the Earthshot prize Chhavi Sachdev looks at some of the solutions. From projects looking at providing green hydrogen to industry worldwide and remote communities, to village scale solar electricity networks in Bangladesh and a portable pay as you go powerpack in Nigeria. Also how to provide a livelihood for people who live in areas where conservation concerns mean they are no longer able to follow their traditional hunting practices . And we feature solutions for dealing with our wastes in their many forms from cleaning up polluted water to recycling human and agricultural organic waste – including an innovative city based system for collecting and redistributing food that would otherwise be destroyed. The Earthshot Prize is an initiative from the Royal Foundation designed to highlight and reward inspiring solutions to some of the world's greatest challenges. There are 5 categories with a million pound prize available in each. Protect and restore nature. Clean our air. Revive our oceans. Build a waste-free world. Fix our climate.

There are thought to be over 10,000 gas flares around the world that contribute to global warming by emitting tonnes of carbon dioxide and methane. Flared gas is a by-product of oil extraction and is frequently used as a method of eliminating unwanted gasses in countries such as Albania, Algeria, Libya, Iraq, Russia and Nigeria. Yet, year after year deadlines set to stop the practice are missed. The oil industry says better infrastructure is needed to stop flaring and some of the world's largest producers of oil have committed to ending flaring by 2030. What will it take for that to happen? Presenters Neal Razzell and Kate Lamble are joined by: Bjørn Otto Sverdrup, chair, Oil and Gas Climate Initiative Mark Davis, CEO of Capterio.

"Alonzo" Wind is a retired Senior Foreign Service Officer from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), having worked on and off with the Agency primarily overseas on diplomatic assignments from 1990 to 1992 and 1999 to 2019 in the Peru, Nicaragua, Angola, Nigeria, Iraq, Afghanistan and South Africa and the Southern Africa USAID Regional Missions. He provided oversight to U.S. government foreign aid development and humanitarian assistance, and supported U.S. Ambassadors as their senior development officer on multiple U.S. Embassy Country Teams.
