It's Friday, September 9th,  A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. By Adam McManus (Adam@TheWorldview.com) Ugandan Muslims threw 5 Christian evangelists overboard On August 10th, Muslim extremists killed five Christian workers by throwing them off a boat into central Uganda's Lake Kyoga, reports Morning Star News. A Christian survivor of the attack said the evangelists from End Time Word Ministry church were traveling from Nakasongola District to Apac District on a commercial transport boat with plans to plant a church. The survivor, Amos Kyakulaga, a church deacon who was acting as a guide, said the five evangelists began proclaiming Christ to a group of 10 Muslims in Islamic attire aboard the boat. He said, “On our way, Tonny Ankunda started preaching to the people on the boat, which resulted in a huge argument between Muslims and the missionaries concerning the Sonship of our Lord Jesus Christ.” He said one of the Muslims, identified only as Bashir, began threatening the Christians, saying, “If you continue insisting that Jesus is the Son of God, then Allah will kill all of you.” Citing Scripture, the evangelists continued affirming the sonship of Christ.  Bashir, the Muslim, told them, “We are giving you one last minute to stop your blasphemy and to convert by confessing the shahada (Islamic creed), or else your lives are at risk.” When the five evangelists refused to renounce Christ, the Muslims seized them and pushed them off the boat one by one, Kyakulaga said.  Because they were 650 feet from shore, all five Christians drowned. Despite the fact that Muslims make up only 12 percent of Uganda's population, they live in high concentrations in the east. Queen Elizabeth II died--having shared Christ's light Queen Elizabeth II died peacefully yesterday at the age of 96, marking an end to her 70-year and 214-day reign, reports The Sun. Her son, Charles, who will now be known as King Charles III, gave a somber statement as he led the nation in mourning last night. The new King said, “The death of my beloved mother, Her Majesty The Queen, is a moment of the greatest sadness for me and all members of my family.” She has been called the last reigning Christian monarch. In fact, Evangelist Franklin Graham said, “I'm especially grateful for the Queen's friendship with my father Billy Graham. He cherished their friendship that was built on a shared love for Jesus Christ and belief in God's Word." Throughout her 70-year reign, she often mentioned Christianity. In her 1957 Christmas address, Queen Elizabeth quoted the famous Christian allegory, The Pilgrim's Progress, by John Bunyun. QUEEN: “I believe that together, we can set an example to the world, which will encourage upright people everywhere. I would like to read you a few lines from Pilgrim's Progress, because I'm sure we can say, with Mr. Valiant-for-Truth, these words: ‘My marks and scars I carry with me to be a witness for me, but I have fought His battles, who now will be my Rewarder.” In the year 2000, she spoke of a personal accountability before God. QUEEN: “For me, the teachings of Christ and my own personal accountability before God, provide a framework in which I try to lead my life. I, like so many of you, have drawn great comfort in difficult times, from Christ's words and example. ‘Hold fast to that which is good. Render to near man evil for evil, strengthen the faint hearted, support the weak, healthy afflicted on all men.” In 2014, the Queen said that the life of Jesus was an inspiration and an anchor in her life. QUEEN: “Jesus Christ lived obscurely for most of His life, and never traveled far. He was maligned and rejected by many, though He had done no wrong. And yet, billions of people now follow His teaching and find in Him the guiding light for their lives. I am one of them because Christ's example helps me see the value of doing small things with great love.” In April of 2020, Queen Elizabeth affirmed the need to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ, especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. QUEEN: “Indeed, we need Easter as much as ever. The discovery of the risen Christ on the first Easter Day gave His followers new hope and fresh purpose, and we can all take heart from this.” Last night, she received her heavenly crown, a crown worth infinitely more than her earthly one. The Bible speaks of five crowns. In 2 Timothy 4:8, Paul says, “Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing.” 4 dead & 3 wounded in Memphis, Tennessee Mourning and anger enveloped Memphis, Tennessee yesterday as authorities sought the motive for a gunman's daylong, livestreamed shooting spree that left four people dead and three wounded, reports USA Today. Ezekiel Dejuan Kelly, age 19, was captured Wednesday evening having driven around for hours shooting people, and finally participating in a carjacking. Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland expressed outrage that Kelly had been charged with criminal attempted first-degree murder two years ago, but pleaded guilty in April 2021 to the lesser charge of aggravated assault. He was sentenced to three years in prison, but served just over two years. STRICKLAND: “If this man had served his full sentence, he would be in prison this morning, and these four lives would still be with us.” Zambia, Africa celebrates New Testament translation And finally, Christians in Zambia, Africa, are celebrating the latest milestone in Bible translation: the creation of the New Testament in their native tongues. According to CBN News, the effort is led by Wycliffe Associates, an organization that offers Bible translations in countless languages. Currently, over 5,000 people are working in Zambia to translate the Bible into 20 native languages. Bishop Henry Mumba, a pastor and church planter, is assisting church-owned translation work in Munsa. He recalled how he heard his first Bible verse when he was 19 years old. MUMBA: "My pastor was a missionary from another country. And he came into this town and when they preached the Gospel to me, the first verse that I knew was John 3:16. ‘For God so love the world, that He gave His only son that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.'" Listen as this woman quoted a portion for the first time in their hearing. (audio of Zambian translation followed by cheers) Amazingly, it's the first time this language has been written down for any reason. MUMBA: “That Bible is the first written literature. We've never had anything before.” Bishop Mumba explained what it meant. MUMBA: “God is speaking our language!” Of the world's 7,000 languages, fewer than 800 have the Bible fully translated.

I am Peter Mutabazi.    And this is my story.   As a child in Uganda, I grew up with shelter, food and clothing scarcity. But more than that, I grew up with safety scarcity. I feared for my life from a father who threatened me, and frequently called me “garbage” and “useless.” Parents are supposed to protect their children. When my father didn't, I ran away from home to live on the streets in Kampala.    Four years of doing whatever I needed to survive, a young couple:   … saw me … heard me … told me I wasn't alone … and showed me that I mattered.   They sent me to school. They put a roof over my head. They clothed me. And fed me three meals a day. And allowed me to be a child. So I could grow up to do the same for others.   I decided to do for other children what this one couple did for me.   FACEBOOK INSTAGRAM WEBSITE   Foster Care: An Unparalleled Journey Find All Our Links Here https://linktr.ee/fostercarenation Merch! http://tee.pub/lic/RwiARsuuDHs Call the Voicemail Line 413-foster 3 (413) 367-8373 Foster Care 101 Free webinar with NO sales pitch!

He also instituted WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) educational programs in order to teach each village about the power of sustainability and sanitation. After installing a well in the Mityana district of Uganda, a little girl, younger than 9, approached Nick and thanked him personally for the water with happiness and an overwhelming sense of gratitude. This experience is what influenced Nick to set a goal to fund and help over 1 million people and build 1000 wells. Today, in 2021, Nick and his organization are working to do just that. Wells of Life has joined forces with a team in both Ireland and Uganda to drill and restore over 700 wells in East Africa. It is with courage, tenacity, and a close relationship with God that Nick has continued to follow the path to serve others. Today, the global water crisis affects 785 million people who lack basic access to clean and safe water. Nick is a firm believer that every drop matters and every second counts. And with one donation from each school, church, and business, we can work to end this crisis as we know it.   In this episode learn more about: - How the gift of water can save lives and create opportunity - How Wells of Life is creating sustainable change through their organization - Charity vs. Philanthropy – learn what the key difference is - The current goals that Wells of Life has and how you can help the organization achieve them When asked what his “Ultimate Lesson Learned” has been, Nick shared, “Success comes at a price, and persistence is a muscle of great value.”   Learn more about Wells of Life by visiting their website: https://www.wellsoflife.org/ *** The Zandbergen Report, where wealth strategies and investment wisdom collide, is led by host Bart Zandbergen.

This week, as the world has been reacting to the shocking news of the attack on the author Sir Salman Rushdie at a book event in New York State, The Cultural Frontline asks what this attack means for the world of writers and publishing and what it says about freedom of expression in literature today. Tina Daheley is joined by the Kurdish author and former human rights lawyer Burhan Sönmez, the Ugandan novelist Kakwenza Rukirabashaija and the US Irish writer and literary translator Maureen Freely. Sir Salman is one of the most celebrated writers in the English language. His second novel, Midnight's Children, won the Booker Prize for fiction, one of literature's top awards. It was Rushdie's fourth novel, The Satanic Verses, which became his most controversial book, and he was forced to go into hiding as a result of the backlash after it was published in 1988. Many Muslims reacted with fury to it, arguing that the portrayal of the Prophet Muhammad was a grave insult to their faith. He faced death threats and the then-Iranian leader, Ayatollah Khomeini, issued a fatwa - or decree - calling for Rushdie's assassination. In recent years the author seemed to enjoy a new level of freedom. Please be warned that there are descriptions of torture in this programme which some listeners may find distressing.

Russia wiped out 400 Ukrainian Baptist churches, R-rated film sales dropped 26%, Ugandan Muslims cut off recent Christian convert's hand

It's Thursday, August 18th, A.D. 2022. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I'm Adam McManus. (Adam@TheWorldview.com) By Jonathan Clark Ugandan Muslims cut off recent Christian convert's hand Morning Star News reports Muslim extremists in Uganda recently attacked a man who left Islam for Christianity.  Musa John Kasadah, his wife, and six children came to Christ at an open-air event back in June.  Last month, Kasadah and his family fled for safety after Muslims sent a threatening message to their pastor. But the extremists ambushed the family last month. They beat him and even cut off his hand, intending to kill him. Thankfully, the arrival of sugarcane workers interrupted the attack, and Kasadah was taken to the hospital.   The attack is one of many recent instances of persecution against Christians in Uganda. Russia wiped out 400 Ukrainian Baptist churches The Ukrainian Baptist Theological Seminary reports they have lost about 400 churches since Russia invaded the country six months ago. And the All-Ukrainian Union of Churches of Evangelical Christian Baptists reports that dozens of pastors from the 2300 Baptist congregations in Ukraine have been forced to leave places destroyed by the war. Ukrainian pastors say their challenge is not just rebuilding structures but rebuilding leadership capacity that was lost. Pastor Yaroslav Pyzh with the baptist seminary said, “The real challenge is similar to Nehemiah's challenge. It's not only rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem. It's rebuilding the nation of Israel, of worshiping God. . . . That's the same thing here in Ukraine.”   Evangelical Lutherans pass the Biblical test Last Thursday, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America  voted to potentially revise their social statement on human sexuality, reports the Christian Post.  The 2009 statement said the denomination did not have a consensus on people living in vile passions with the same sex. The statement did recognize that “on the basis of conscience-bound belief, some are convinced that same-gender sexual behavior is sinful and contrary to biblical teaching.”  The statement is now up for revision as the denomination's leaders welcome people living sexually perverted lifestyles without calling them to repentance. Romans 2:4 says, “Do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?” Biden opens 80 million acres of Gulf of Mexico to oil drilling The U.S. Department of the Interior must increase fossil fuel production on federal lands and waters as part of the Inflation Reduction Act signed by President Joe Biden on Tuesday. The Act reinstates Lease Sale 257, the largest oil and gas lease sale in U.S. history. It covers over 80 million acres across the Gulf of Mexico. Frank Macchiarola with the American Petroleum Institute told FOX Business, "While reinstating Lease Sale 257 is a positive step forward for American energy leadership, the legislation, as a whole, falls well short of addressing America's long-term energy needs.” Louisiana allows abortion ban to stand Last Friday, the Louisiana Supreme Court denied appeals by plaintiffs attempting to block the state's abortion ban. Louisiana's abortion ban was triggered by the overturning of Roe v. Wade. Now, the last three abortion mills in the state are closing and relocating to other states. R-rated film sales dropped 26% Box office revenue from R-rated films is at a 25-year low. R-rated moves accounted for 14% of theater sales this year, down from 40% in the 1990s. Such films are being pushed to at-home streaming instead. In 2021, every movie that grossed over $100 million at the box office was rated PG-13. This year, the same is true with a few exceptions. Archaeological evidence for Second Temple discovered And finally, the experts at Israel Antiquities Authority announced last Sunday that they've discovered evidence of the destruction of the Second Temple by Roman general Titus in A.D. 70. The antiquity experts uncovered a 2,000-year-old battleground in Jerusalem's Russian Compound, one of the city's oldest districts. Archaeologists found stones they believe were used as projectiles to break down the walls of Jerusalem by the Roman army. The Roman arsenal included hundreds of ballista stones as well as catapult machines capable of launching projectiles hundreds of meters. Eli Eskosido, Director of the Israel Antiquities Authority, said, “The physical evidence of the huge resources employed by the Roman army in Jerusalem, reflect the extremely harsh battles that eventually led to the destruction of the Second Temple.” Matthew 24:1-2 says, “Then Jesus went out and departed from the temple, and His disciples came up to show Him the buildings of the temple. And Jesus said to them, ‘Do you not see all these things? Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.'” And now you know the rest of the story!

Welcome to The Nonlinear Library, where we use Text-to-Speech software to convert the best writing from the Rationalist and EA communities into audio. This is: Large-scale International Educational Migration: A Shallow Investigation, published by Johannes Haushofer on August 12, 2022 on The Effective Altruism Forum. Jasmin Baier, Johannes Haushofer, Hannah Lea Shaw with input from Toman Barsbai and Merve Demirel 1. Introduction Two thirds of the world's population live on less than $10 per day (Our World in Data), and 60% of the global variability in income is explained by where one is born (Milanovich, 2015). Perhaps as a result, many people want to permanently migrate to another country: in low-income countries, the share ranges from 20–59%; among Africans under 25, it is 33% (Gallup World Poll, own calculations; Figure 1). At the same time, many high-income countries experience significant gaps in their labor force, both in terms of skills and raw numbers, resulting from low birth rates and aging populations. The OECD estimates that this workforce gap will amount to 450 million people by 2050. These figures suggest that increased international migration would have benefits both for migrants themselves, and for destination countries. Indeed, the economic benefits of removing international migration barriers amount to large fractions of world GDP — one or two orders of magnitude larger than those of trade barriers (Clemens, 2011). Recognizing this, many high-income countries are actively working to reduce migration barriers. This is especially true for educational migration: many countries are working towards internationalizing their higher education systems, simplifying student visa and work requirements, and reducing tuition costs (e.g., in the case of Germany, keeping university completely free, even for third-country nationals). For the migrants, international educational migration provides access to the labor market in the destination country, and additionally combines the returns to migration with those to education. The goal of this investigation is therefore to explore international educational migration as a possible mechanism to increase migration opportunities and alleviate poverty. 2. Potential Impact 2.1 Direct Economic Impact on Migrants Cross-country estimates of the returns to migration suggest potential impacts on income around 1,500% (Figure 2). Studies that permit causal claims have shown that international migration generates income increases of several hundreds of percent. For instance, labor migrants from Tonga to New Zealand increase their income by 263% one year after migration (McKenzie, Stillman, and Gibson 2010). Similarly, Mobarak et al. (2020) estimate returns of around 200% in terms of income from low-skilled migration between Bangladesh and Malaysia. Because these studies estimate individual economic gains from labor migration, often low-skill, we view these estimates as lower bounds for the impact of educational migration, which combines the benefits of migration with those of education. Specifically, education itself has large returns, on the order of 10% per year (Peet, Fink, and Fawzi 2015). Importantly, these returns are unlikely to decay over time. (This stands in sharp contrast to e.g. cash transfer programs, whose effects have been shown to dissipate over time; e.g. Blattman, Fiala, and Martinez 2020). Unfortunately, we are not aware of causal evidence on the returns to international educational migration. However, to provide a concrete example for the likely returns, we briefly summarize estimates for the impact of the educational migration program Malengo, with which we are associated. Malengo enables Ugandan secondary school graduates to apply for and complete an English-taught Bachelor's program in Germany. The cost of the program per student net of administration costs is EUR 11,971, which includes a living expense stipend and semester fees for the first year; application expense...

Compilation of stories marking 50 years since Idi Amin expelled thousands of Asians from Uganda in 1972. We hear about why they migrated there, their expulsion, and what they did next. Jamie Govani's grandparents always dreamed about finding a better life away from India. After getting married in the Indian state of Gujarat in the 1920s, they decided to pack their bags and move to Uganda with their young family. It was a wonderful place to grow up for Jamie, but racial segregation lingered in the background, and things began to change after Ugandan independence in 1962. She's been speaking to Ben Henderson. As well as in Uganda, there was also an Asian population in Kenya, who experienced discrimination. This was initially from white settlers but, after independence, it came from black Kenyans too. Following the partition of India in 1947, Saleem Sheikh's parents fled to Kenya. His family joined a thriving Asian community there. But, they were forced to leave in the late 1960s after a rise in violence against the Asian population. Saleem tells Ben Henderson about his life. In August 1972, the dictator Idi Amin announced that all Asians had just 90 days to leave Uganda. Nurdin Dawood, who was a teacher with a young family, initially didn't believe that Amin was being serious. But soon he was desperately searching for a country to call home. He spoke to his daughter Farhana Dawood in 2011. Thousands of Asians who were expelled from Uganda in 1972 settled in the UK and many made the city of Leicester their home. They helped to shape the east Midlands city's identity with lots of new businesses. Now Leicester has the largest Diwali celebrations outside of India. Nisha Popat was nine-years-old when she arrived there with her family who later opened a restaurant in the area that became known as the Golden Mile. Nisha tells her story to Reena Stanton-Sharma. President Yoweri Museveni came to power in 1986. He encouraged exiled Asians to return to Uganda and reclaim their homes and businesses in order to rebuild the country. The economy had collapsed under the dictator Idi Amin. Dr. Mumtaz Kassam was one of the people who went back to Uganda years after arriving in the UK as a refugee. She talks to Reena Stanton-Sharma about returning to the country that had expelled her. (Picture of Jamie Govani's grandparents, aunts and uncles in Uganda in the 1950s)

Thousands of Asians who were expelled from Uganda in 1972, settled in the UK and many made Leicester their home. Their arrival in the East Midlands helped to shape its identity and now Leicester plays host to the largest Diwali celebrations outside of India. Nisha Popat was nine-years-old when she arrived in the city with her family who later opened up a restaurant in the area that became known as the Golden Mile. Reena Stanton-Sharma spoke to her about moving there in the 70s as a child. This programme contains descriptions of racial discrimination.

They were excited by the economic prospects in Uganda so they moved there with their young family. Jamie told Ben Henderson how it was a wonderful place to grow up, but racial segregation lingered in the background, and things began to change after Ugandan independence in 1962.
