Watch & Enjoy Massive 706-Carat Diamond Unearthed In Sierra Leone || TOLLYWOOD BOXOFFICE A pastor has unearthed a massive gem in eastern Sierra Leone. Pastor Emmanuel Momoh, who also works as a miner, discovered the 706-carat diamond in Kono district, the government said in a statement. He handed it over to President Ernest Bai Koroma, who thanked him for not smuggling it out of the country. The President pledged to reward him with some of the proceeds from the sale of the diamond. The government plans to sell it to the highest bidder, the President said. The gem may not be the largest ever found, but it's pretty close. Last year, an uncut 1,109-carat diamond was auctioned in London -- the largest uncut diamond ever found. The diamond discovered in Botswana was named Lesedi La Rona, meaning "Our Light" in the local Tswana language. It's surpassed in size only by the 3,106-carat "Cullinan Diamond" found in 1905 in South Africa. A cut of that diamond, known as the "First Star of Africa," now is part of British royal family's crown jewels.

The mine began production in 2015, and ramped up to an estimated production of 1.5 million carats in 2016. The mine is located just three kilometers from the Nyurbinskaya pipe, the principal asset within the Nakyn field. Botuobinskaya had an estimated 69.3 million carats of reserves as of January 1, 2015, and should continue to produce for more than 30 years. 9 - Mines - Venetia Where - south Africa E.st.reseves - 71.8. million carat It is currently the largest producing diamond mine in South Africa, and is located northwest of Kruger National Park near the border with Zimbabwe. In 2013, De Beers committed to invest up to $2 billion to expand the Venetia mine underground, with production to commence in 2022. The expansion plan could add considerably more reserves to the project than currently estimated. The company estimates that the expansion will extend the life of the mine until 2046. 8 - mines - Grib Where - Russia E.st.reseves - 91.5 million carat Grib is the only significant diamond mine in Russia that is not operated by ALROSA. It was discovered by oil and gas giant Lukoil during prospecting for natural gas near Verkhotina in the Arkhangelsk region of North-Western Russia. 2016 production is expected to be around 4.5 million carats. 7 - Mines - Argyle Where - Australia E.st.reseves - 93.1 million carat Although now nearing the end of its lifespan, the Argyle mine in Australia has been the largest producer of diamonds in history, and has produced more than 750 million carats of diamonds since 1982. After 30 years of mining the open pit, the mine transitioned to a fully underground operation in 2014, with an $800 million investment from Rio Tinto, the mine’s owner. 6 - mines - Mir(mirny) Where - Russia E.st.reseves - 97.4 million carat The Mir mine is an awe-inspiring site, and now ranks as the second-largest excavated hole on Earth. It is so big that flying over the mine is banned because of reports of airborne vehicles being sucked into the pit by the temperature and pressure deviations around the hole. It measures nearly 1.2 km in diameter, and more than 500 m in depth. The mine played a very important role in the development of the diamond industry and the eventual collapse of the De Beers cartel. 5 - mines - Udachny Where - Russia E.st.reseves - 108 million carat Udachny has been the most prolific mine in Russia’s history and could be considered the twin mine of Mir. It is 640m deep, and is so steep in places that it poses a safety risk for hauling trucks to fall off the side of the road. The open pit has been in operation since 1971, and has yielded $80 billion worth of diamonds from 340 million tonnes of ore. Like Mir, Udachny has transitioned into a fully underground mine, with an over $800 million development plan. Development is currently underway. 4 - mines - Vatican Where - Angola E.sr.reseves - 110 million carat Angola, accounting for 70% of the country’s production. It was first discovered in 1965 by artisanal diggers in the region. A mine was developed in 1994, and is owned and operated by Sociedade Mineira de Catoca, a joint venture which includes the state-run mining company ENDIAMA, and Russia-based diamond producer ALROSA, amongst others. The mine began production in 1997. 3 - mines - Jubilee Where - Russia E.st.reseves- 125.4 million carat Jubilee was the largest diamond mine in the world for many years, but it dropped to fourth spot due to high production rates at other mines over the past several years. The mine’s 2015 production was estimated at 9 million carats. However, with the addition of unproven underground reserves. 2 - mines - Jwaneng Where - Botswana E.st.reseves - 149.1 million carat Not surprisingly, the highest producing diamond mine in the world by value is also one of the largest. The Jwaneng mine is located 160 kilometers southwest of Gaborone in the south of Botswana. 1 - mines - Orapa Where - Botswana E.st.reseves - 151.4 million carat The mine in Botswana is located about 500km northwest of the capital city of Gaborone in central Botswana. Orapa, meaning ‘resting place of lions’, was discovered in the 1960s, shortly after Botswana gained independence from Britain. It began production in 1971, and has been one of the highest-producing mines in the world, ever since hitting a peak production of 17.3 million carats in 2006.

Discovery Giant diamond found in Canadian-owned mine could sell for $90-million

Discovery Giant diamond found in Canadian-owned mine could sell for $90-million Source: globe and mail: A three-billion-year-old diamond the size of a tennis ball could fetch more than $90-million when the Canadian mining company that unearthed it puts the rock up for auction this summer. But the first person to lay eyes on the whopping gem barely gave it a glance, the CEO of Vancouver-based Lucara Diamond Corp. recalled Wednesday, as the eye-popping estimate for the precious stone was issued by auctioneer Sotheby’s. “He’d only been working for us for two weeks, so he sees the thousand carats and goes ‘oh, this must be normal,“’ William Lamb told The Canadian Press. “He didn’t tell anybody. It was only when the chief saw it that there was this huge commotion on site.” The diamond was unearthed in November, at the Karowe mine in Botswana that’s owned by Lucara. After being closely examined, it was found to measure 1,109 carats, making it the second-largest gem-quality rough diamond ever discovered. The only bigger diamond found to date was the 3,106-carat Cullinan diamond, unearthed in South Africa in 1905. It was cut into nine pieces that form part of the U.K. Crown Jewels. The Cullinan diamond, however, was found when a mine worker noticed something glinting in the side of a pit, grabbed a ladder and started chipping around it with a pen knife, said Lamb. The diamond found at the Lucara mine, in contrast, managed to survive a modern mining process that included drilling, blasting, excavation, crushing and mechanized sorting, he said. “Our stone actually went through an entire processing facility before it was recovered,” Lamb explained. “We were very lucky.” The diamond has been named Lesedi la Rona, meaning “our light” in the local Tswana language. The name came from a local contest which drew 11,000 entries, Lamb said, and carries a special meaning for Botswana, whose economy has benefited greatly from diamond mining. The Lesedi la Rona is currently on a world tour ahead of an auction in London this summer. It has already been displayed in Singapore, Hong Kong and Dubai, and will be shown in New York this weekend before heading to locations in Europe, said Lamb. “We’re trying to get access to people who may want it as a collector’s item,” he said. “We’re looking at people who have the financial resources, but also see the uniqueness, the rarity and the beauty in the stone.” Auctioneer Sotheby’s has estimated the diamond could sell for more than $90-million, but Lamb said just how much the rock will ultimately go for is hard to say. “This is historic,” he said. “It is the only plus thousand carat stone in existence.” Whoever acquires the diamond will have to decide whether to cut and polish the stone, possibly splitting it into smaller pieces, or keep it in its rough form. “If you ask me, I wouldn’t cut it. It is unique,” said Lamb, who remembered feeling “shock and awe” when he first held the diamond. “It automatically draws you to it. I’d say the stone has an addictive quality to it.” Sotheby’s has said the rough gemstone “of exceptional transparency” could yield the largest top-quality diamond ever cut and polished, if the buyer decides to go that route. David Bennett, chairman of Sotheby’s jewellery division, called the discovery “the find of a lifetime” and the auction unprecedented, because no rough diamond of this size has ever been auctioned. The Lesedi la Rona could smash the record price for a diamond of US$48.5-million, paid at a Geneva sale last year for the 12.03-carat polished “Blue Moon” diamond. Hong Kong billionaire Joseph Lau picked it up as a gift for his 7-year-old daughter. The Lesedi la Rona diamond will be offered at auction on June 29. Biggest diamond found: Owner Royal Collection (I and II) Queen Elizabeth II (III–IX) The Cullinan Diamond was a large gem-quality diamond weighing 3,106.75 carats (621.350 g) discovered at the Premier No. 2 mine outside Pretoria, South Africa, on 26 January 1905. It was cut into several polished gems, the largest of which is named Cullinan I or the Great Star of Africa, and at 530.4 carats (106.08 g) it is the largest polished white diamond in the world. It was the largest polished diamond of any colour until the discovery in 1985 of the Golden Jubilee Diamond (545.67 carats (109.134 g)), also from the Premier Mine. Cullinan I is mounted in the head of the Sovereign's Sceptre with Cross. The second-largest gem from the rough stone, Cullinan II or the Second Star of Africa, at 317.4 carats (63.48 g), is the fourth-largest polished diamond in the world, and is mounted in the Imperial State Crown. Both diamonds are in the Crown Jewels, which are part of the Royal Collection held in trust by Queen Elizabeth II for her successors and the nation. Seven other diamonds cut from the original belong to the Queen

Enhydro Crystal - Purpose & Meaning
 
01:46
Enhydro crystals are crystals with encapsulated water. The water bubble does not have to move for the crystal to be considered an enhydro crystal. Enhydro crystals remind us that even though the water dropplet in the crystal is seemingly separate from the water cycle, it is not separate from the water element...just like us, we may feel separate or cut off from each other or the divine, but we are never separate as we express ourselves as separate beings. The enhydro reminds us to embrace our unique self as we acknowledge we are one, all connected to one another. Thank you for watching. I wish I could have captured the water dropplet better with my little camera, but I wanted to share this with you. Many blessings

What's the Difference Between Kosher Salt, Table Salt, and Sea Salt?

Click here to watch more kitchen tips: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnbzopdwFrnbw7lMXc3_Ry36bEucTzGdv What are the different types of salt, and how do their characteristics differ? Find out which food storage containers are actually leak-proof: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WprgFWLgguM Check out our Kitchen Smarts series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLnbzopdwFrnZxin-RUn3vI21Ghu6KvCXn Whether mined from underground salt deposits or obtained by evaporating seawater, salt in its most basic form is the same: sodium chloride. What distinguishes one salt from another is texture, shape, and mineral content. These qualities can affect how a salt tastes as well as how it interacts with other foods. How Much Salt Is in That Teaspoon? Given its coarser crystal structure, kosher salt packs a lot less into each teaspoon when compared to table salt. In fact, even the volume measurements between the two major brands of kosher salt—Morton and Diamond Crystal—vary significantly. Here's how they measure up: 1 teaspoon table salt = 1 1/2 teaspoons Morton kosher salt = 2 teaspoons Diamond Crystal kosher salt TABLE SALT Table salt, also known as common salt, consists of tiny, uniformly shaped crystals created during rapid vacuum evaporation. It usually includes anti-caking agents that help it pour smoothly. HOW WE USE IT: Fine-grain table salt dissolves easily, making it our go-to for most applications, both sweet and savory. SHOPPING TIP: Avoid iodized salt, which can impart a subtle chemical flavor. Kosher Salt Coarse-grain kosher salt is raked during the evaporation process to yield flaky crystals originally used for koshering meat. Unlike table salt, kosher salt doesn’t contain any additives. HOW WE USE IT: Kosher salt is our top choice for seasoning meat. The large grains distribute easily and cling well to the meat’s surfaces. SHOPPING TIP: The two major brands of kosher salt—Morton and Diamond Crystal—work equally well; however, their crystal sizes differ considerably (see below), and this makes a difference when measuring by volume. Sea Salt Sea salt is the product of seawater evaporation—a time-consuming, expensive process that yields irregularly shaped, mineral-rich flakes that vary in color but only slightly in flavor. HOW WE USE IT: Don’t bother cooking with pricey sea salt; we’ve found that mixed into food, it doesn’t taste any different than table salt. Instead, we use it as a “finishing salt,” where its delicate crunch stands out. SHOPPING TIP: Texture—not exotic provenance—is the main consideration. Look for brands boasting large, flaky crystals such as Maldon Sea Salt.

Cullinan Diamond
 
12:59
The Cullinan diamond was the largest non carbonado and largest gem-quality diamond ever found, at 3106.75 carat (621.35 g, 1.37 lb) rough weight. About 10.5 cm (4.1 inches) long in its largest dimension, it was found on 26 January 1905, in the Premier No. 2 mine, near Pretoria, South Africa. The largest polished gem from the stone is named Cullinan I or the Great Star of Africa, and at 530.4 carats (106.08 g) is the largest polished white diamond in the world. It was the largest polished diamond of any colour until the 1985 discovery of the Golden Jubilee Diamond, 545.67 carats (109.134 g), also from the Premier Mine.

Rio Tinto is one of the biggest mining groups in the world. The workers at one mine in South Africa had become unsettled about rumours the mine was to close and about safety standards. The Kgotla Company organised an operations-wide Kgotla over a 10-day period, during which 4,000 people expressed their thoughts. Some 500 ideas emerged during the sessions and 35 decisions were taken. Some of these focused on improving safety procedures. Others involved utilising suggestions for improving mining techniques.

Eighth Annual Emerging Markets Forum Business Powering Africa Forward
 
06:22:02
Presented by the Center for Global Business, sponsored in-part by CIBER, a title VI grant from the U.S. Department of Education, at the Robert H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland The Smith School's Center for Global Business convenes its 8th Annual Emerging Markets Forum on the theme of doing business in Africa. Since 2010, this conference series has examined the rise of new economic powers, increased awareness about emerging markets, and disseminated information about how U.S. companies can best succeed there. One of the fastest growing economies in the world, Africa has many countries that have made diversification a priority. Opportunities abound for businesses that understand that trade, not aid, is the road to future prosperity. Expert speakers from business, academia and policy will discuss the opportunities as well as challenges of doing business in Africa, including: ● Which countries are reforming and growing fastest? ● Which sectors are the most promising (now and in the future)? ● What opportunities have drawn U.S. businesses to Africa? ● What challenges do they face, and how have they overcome these challenges?

How Much You Earn with 1,000, 10,000, 100,000 and 1 Million views in Youtube
 
14:17
Hello friends, in this video I have tried to explain how much you can earn through youtube videos for every 1,000, 10,000, 100,000 and 1 million views and how you can make money through youtube. Subscribe to My Channel and Get More Great Tips: https://goo.gl/lJ8e17 Everyday there are thousands visiting youtube to check on easy money and find out ways of making money on youtube. Everyone wants to know how to earn money through youtube because it youtube pays good amount of money to the youtube channels for every view that happens on the channel. There are so many questions around like how do youtubers make money and how much youtube pay per views and similar to it. In this video I have explained how it actually works. In youtube there are 4 types of ads that are displayed. Display Ads: This type of ads are visible on desktop view only. This is the kind of ad that gives maximum money to youtubers because they are based on CPC, CPM etc. You can make anything between 10 to 15 dollars for every 1,000 views in India and in if the ads are clicked from countries like America, United Kingdom, Australia then you are going to make almost 4 times of it. Image how much you can earn with million views. Overlay Ads: This sort of ads are the ones which comes as small pop up while you are watching a video probably during the start of the video or sometime in between the video. They are low paid ads and you do not make much money out of it. It normally gives about $0.6 to 1 if you are in India and if your video is watched in US then it may go up to $3-5 which is good. This is called easy money, right? Well yes, it is. Youtube money per view is very much depended on the location where the video is watched. If your video or a clip is watched outside India in countries like US, UK, AUS etc then you have very high chances of making good money on youtube. Sponsored ads: This kind of ads are basically shown on the right side of the video pane and they are also paid well as compared to overlay ads. To eanr money with youtube, you must select all sort of ads while monetizing the videos at the time of upload. How much youtubers earn would very much depend on sponsored ads because the sponsors pay hefty money for each ad displayed on your video. Skippable Ads: This kind of ads the most irritating ones for few because it doesn’t allow the viewer to skip until 5 seconds. But it pays you well and so well that your youtube payment will be soaring to new heights. You will be highly delighted to see your payout from youtube for such kind of ads. That’s why it is one of my favorite as well. So now the bottom line is how much we can normally make for every 1,000, 10,000, 100,000, million views. The answer is shown in the video guys. Just have a look once and you will be highly motivated to have your own channel one day and make the most out of it. The fact is if you have more youtube subscribers then you will make more money. Simple as that. So also, focus on getting more subscribers through organic way and not by foul play. Remember guys, if adsense gets to know anything suspicious, they will just block your account and to reinstate, you have to write mails after mails and it may never get back on. So please be calm and have patience because your videos will grow someday. Well guys. Thank you so much for watching this video. Hope you liked it.

2015 AAA Invited Session: IDENTITY, BELONGING AND THE BIOPOLITICS OF DNA IN COLONIAL MODERNITY
 
01:49:01
Genetic research into the origins, population histories, and structure of indigenous and diasporic populations have provided important scientific insights into the past. However, in and through this research, DNA has emerged as a potent and often problematic ontological device for producing identities, re/connection, and belonging. Operating within the context of colonial modernity, material productions of identity are often shaped by historical racial and social boundaries in the settler state, where DNA is caught up in various identity discourses that may reinforce, resist, or remodel colonial structures of power. This session will explore the ways in which genetic and material claims to identity are constructed within colonial modernity, where a biopolitic oriented to colonial structures of power influences who gets studied, what histories are relevant, who owns history, which bodies count, and where they belong. Panelists will also destabilize these historical dynamics by troubling genetic claims to identity and highlighting emerging work that reorients conventional power relations among the various stakeholders in genetic research. Furthermore, panelists will present and explore alternate, decolonized means of producing genetic science and situate these emerging genetic ontologies alongside non-scientific productions of identity and belonging. This panel will bring together diverse perspectives from genetics, anthropology, sociology, medicine, and law to explore how the material/semiotic power of DNA is deployed within the processes of political subject formation, and how genomics intersects with identity politics in colonial modernity. We will explore how DNA is entangled with discourses of survival and extinction, power and powerlessness, estrangement and familiarization, dis/placement, and appropriation, and will consider the role of scientific discourse and silence in constituting and negotiating identities. Building on previous work exploring the reification of biological race in contemporary genomics, this panel will theorize the generative processes by which such constructions emerge. In order to incorporate the diversity of voices and perspectives needed to critically evaluate the identity politics of DNA and subject formations within colonial modernity, we are proposing a two part, paired panel. Given the interrelatedness of the content in each session, it would be ideal for Part I to directly precede Part II. Part I will include six speakers and one discussant; Part II will include five speakers, one discussant, and 15 minutes for open discussion. This session (Part I) will explore issues of representation in genetic research, how they shape both historical and contemporary knowledge production, and the implications for generating identity and belonging. This session will also explore the current opportunities and future directions that arise from reorienting conventional power relations in genetic research.

This video uses Google TTS en-US-Standard-D voice. SUMMARY ======= South Africa, officially the Republic of South Africa (RSA), is the southernmost country in Africa. It is bounded to the south by 2,798 kilometres (1,739 mi) of coastline of Southern Africa stretching along the South Atlantic and Indian Oceans; to the north by the neighbouring countries of Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe; and to the east and northeast by Mozambique and Swaziland (Eswatini); and it surrounds the enclaved country of Lesotho. South Africa is the largest country in Southern Africa and the 25th-largest country in the world by land area and, with over 57 million people, is the world's 24th-most populous nation. It is the southernmost country on the mainland of the Old World or the Eastern Hemisphere. About 80 percent of South Africans are of Sub-Saharan African ancestry, divided among a variety of ethnic groups speaking different African languages, nine of which have official status. The remaining population consists of Africa's largest communities of European (White), Asian (Indian), and multiracial (Coloured) ancestry. South Africa is a multiethnic society encompassing a wide variety of cultures, languages, and religions. Its pluralistic makeup is reflected in the constitution's recognition of 11 official languages, which is the fourth highest number in the world. Two of these languages are of European origin: Afrikaans developed from Dutch and serves as the first language of most coloured and white South Africans; English reflects the legacy of British colonialism, and is commonly used in public and commercial life, though it is fourth-ranked as a spoken first language. The country is one of the few in Africa never to have had a coup d'état, and regular elections have been held for almost a century. However, the vast majority of black South Africans were not enfranchised until 1994. During the 20th century, the black majority sought to recover its rights from the dominant white minority, with this struggle playing a large role in the country's recent history and politics. The National Party imposed apartheid in 1948, institutionalising previous racial segregation. After a long and sometimes violent struggle by the African National Congress (ANC) and other anti-apartheid activists both inside and outside the country, the repeal of discriminatory laws began in 1990. Since 1994, all ethnic and linguistic groups have held political representation in the country's liberal democracy, which comprises a parliamentary republic and nine provinces. South Africa is often referred to as the "rainbow nation" to describe the country's multicultural diversity, especially in the wake of apartheid. The World Bank classifies South Africa as an upper-middle-income economy, and a newly industrialised country. Its economy is the second-largest in Africa, and the 34th-largest in the world. In terms of purchasing power parity, South Africa has the seventh-highest per capita income in Africa. However, poverty and inequality remain widespread, with about a quarter of the population unemployed and living on less than US$1.25 a day. Nevertheless, South Africa has been identified as a middle power in international affairs, and maintains significant regional influence.

Auburn Coach Wife Kristi Malzahn Agrees with Match & eHarmony: Men are Jerks
 
12:23
My advice is this: Settle! That's right. Don't worry about passion or intense connection. Don't nix a guy based on his annoying habit of yelling "Bravo!" in movie theaters. Overlook his halitosis or abysmal sense of aesthetics. Because if you want to have the infrastructure in place to have a family, settling is the way to go. Based on my observations, in fact, settling will probably make you happier in the long run, since many of those who marry with great expectations become more disillusioned with each passing year. (It's hard to maintain that level of zing when the conversation morphs into discussions about who's changing the diapers or balancing the checkbook.) Obviously, I wasn't always an advocate of settling. In fact, it took not settling to make me realize that settling is the better option, and even though settling is a rampant phenomenon, talking about it in a positive light makes people profoundly uncomfortable. Whenever I make the case for settling, people look at me with creased brows of disapproval or frowns of disappointment, the way a child might look at an older sibling who just informed her that Jerry's Kids aren't going to walk, even if you send them money. It's not only politically incorrect to get behind settling, it's downright un-American. Our culture tells us to keep our eyes on the prize (while our mothers, who know better, tell us not to be so picky), and the theme of holding out for true love (whatever that is—look at the divorce rate) permeates our collective mentality. Even situation comedies, starting in the 1970s with The Mary Tyler Moore Show and going all the way to Friends, feature endearing single women in the dating trenches, and there's supposed to be something romantic and even heroic about their search for true love. Of course, the crucial difference is that, whereas the earlier series begins after Mary has been jilted by her fiancé, the more modern-day Friends opens as Rachel Green leaves her nice-guy orthodontist fiancé at the altar simply because she isn't feeling it. But either way, in episode after episode, as both women continue to be unlucky in love, settling starts to look pretty darn appealing. Mary is supposed to be contentedly independent and fulfilled by her newsroom family, but in fact her life seems lonely. Are we to assume that at the end of the series, Mary, by then in her late 30s, found her soul mate after the lights in the newsroom went out and her work family was disbanded? If her experience was anything like mine or that of my single friends, it's unlikely. And while Rachel and her supposed soul mate, Ross, finally get together (for the umpteenth time) in the finale of Friends, do we feel confident that she'll be happier with Ross than she would have been had she settled down with Barry, the orthodontist, 10 years earlier? She and Ross have passion but have never had long-term stability, and the fireworks she experiences with him but not with Barry might actually turn out to be a liability, given how many times their relationship has already gone up in flames. It's equally questionable whether Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw, who cheated on her kindhearted and generous boyfriend, Aidan, only to end up with the more exciting but self-absorbed Mr. Big, will be better off in the framework of marriage and family. (Some time after the breakup, when Carrie ran into Aidan on the street, he was carrying his infant in a Baby Björn. Can anyone imagine Mr. Big walking around with a Björn?)

Deforestation can involve conversion of forest land to farms, ranches, or urban use. The most concentrated deforestation occurs in tropical rainforests. About 31% of Earth's land surface is covered by forests.Deforestation can occur for several reasons: trees can be cut down to be used for building or sold as fuel (sometimes in the form of charcoal or timber), while cleared land can be used as pasture for livestock and plantation. The removal of trees without sufficient reforestation has resulted in habitat damage, biodiversity loss, and aridity. It has adverse impacts on biosequestration of atmospheric carbon dioxide. Deforestation has also been used in war to deprive the enemy of vital resources and cover for its forces. Modern examples of this were the use of Agent Orange by the British military in Malaya during the Malayan Emergency and by the United States military in Vietnam during the Vietnam War. As of 2005, net deforestation rates had ceased to increase in countries with a per capita GDP of at least US$4,600. Deforested regions typically incur significant adverse soil erosion and frequently degrade into wasteland. Disregard of ascribed value, lax forest management, and deficient environmental laws are some of the factors that lead to large-scale deforestation. In many countries, deforestation–both naturally occurring and human-induced–is an ongoing issue. Deforestation causes extinction, changes to climatic conditions, desertification, and displacement of populations, as observed by current conditions and in the past through the fossil record. More than half of all plant and land animal species in the world live in tropical forests.Between 2000 and 2012, 2.3 million square kilometres (890,000 sq mi) of forests around the world were cut down. As a result of deforestation, only 6.2 million square kilometres (2.4 million square miles) remain of the original 16 million square kilometres (6 million square miles) of forest that formerly covered the Earth. An area the size of a football pitch is cleared from the Amazon rainforest every minute, with 136 million acres (55 million hectares) of rainforest cleared for animal agriculture overall.

The requirements of proof for the recognition of aboriginal title, the content of aboriginal title, the methods of extinguishing aboriginal title, and the availability of compensation in the case of extinguishment vary significantly by jurisdiction. Nearly all jurisdictions are in agreement that aboriginal title is inalienable, and that it may be held either individually or collectively. Aboriginal title was first acknowledged in the early 19th century, in decisions in which indigenous peoples were not a party. Significant aboriginal title litigation resulting in victories for indigenous peoples did not arise until recent decades. The majority of court cases have been litigated in Australia, Canada, Malaysia, New Zealand, and the United States. Aboriginal title is an important area of comparative law, with many cases being cited as persuasive authority across jurisdictions. Many commentators believe that the doctrine is applicable in all common law legal systems. Aboriginal title is also referred to as indigenous title, native title (particularly in Australia), original Indian title (particularly in the United States), and customary title (particularly in New Zealand). Aboriginal title jurisprudence is related to indigenous rights, influencing and influenced by non-land issues, such as whether the government owes a fiduciary duty to indigenous peoples. While the judge-made doctrine arises from customary international law, it has been codified nationally by legislation, treaties, and constitutions.

SUMMARY ======= Ghana ( ( listen)), officially the Republic of Ghana, is a country located along the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean, in the subregion of West Africa. Spanning a land mass of 238,535 km2 (92,099 sq mi), Ghana is bordered by the Ivory Coast in the west, Burkina Faso in the north, Togo in the east and the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean in the south. Ghana means "Warrior King" in the Soninke language.The first permanent state in the territory of present-day Ghana dates back to the 11th century. Numerous kingdoms and empires emerged over the centuries, of which the most powerful was the Kingdom of Ashanti. Beginning in the 15th century, numerous European powers contested the area for trading rights, with the British ultimately establishing control of the coast by the late 19th century. Following over a century of native resistance, Ghana's current borders were established by the 1900s as the British Gold Coast. It became independent of the United Kingdom on 6 March 1957.Ghana's population of approximately 28 million spans a variety of ethnic, linguistic and religious groups. Five percent of the population practices traditional faiths, 67.2% adhere to Christianity and 23.6% are Muslim. Its diverse geography and ecology ranges from coastal savannahs to tropical rain forests. Ghana is a unitary constitutional democracy led by a president who is both head of state and head of the government. Ghana's growing economic prosperity and democratic political system have made it a regional power in West Africa. It is a member of the Non-Aligned Movement, the African Union, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Group of 24 (G24) and the Commonwealth of Nations.

The term has at times been expanded to encompass certain persons of Middle Eastern, North African, and South Asian descent, persons who are often considered non-white in other contexts. The usage of "white people" or a "white race" for a large group of mainly or exclusively European populations, defined by their light skin, among other characteristics, and contrasting with "black people", Amerindians, and other "colored" people or "persons of color", originated in the 17th century. It was only during the 19th century that this vague category was transformed in a quasi-scientific system of race and skin color relations. The term "Caucasian" is sometimes used as a synonym for "white" in its racial sense and sometimes to refer to a larger racial category that includes white people among other groups. The concept of a unified white race did not achieve universal acceptance in Europe when it first came into use in the 17th century, or in the centuries afterward. The strongest proponents of racialism in 20th-century Europe, Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany, regarded some European peoples such as Slavs as racially distinct from themselves. Prior to the modern age, no European peoples regarded themselves as "white", but rather defined their race, ancestry, or ethnicity in terms of their nationality (Greek, Roman, etc.). Moreover, there is no accepted standard for determining the geographic barrier between white and non-white people. Contemporary anthropologists and other scientists, while recognizing the reality of biological variation between different human populations, regard the concept of a "white race" as socially constructed. The concept of whiteness has particular resonance in racially diverse countries with large majority or minority populations of more or less mixed European ancestry: e.g., in the United States (White Americans), Canada (White Canadians), Australia (White Australians), New Zealand (White New Zealanders), the United Kingdom (White British), and South Africa (White South Africans). In much of the rest of Europe, the distinction between race and nationality is more blurred; when people are asked to describe their race or ancestry, they often describe it in terms of their nationality, not as "white" but as Polish, Hungarian, Russian, and so on. Various social constructions of whiteness have been significant to national identity, public policy, religion, population statistics, racial segregation, affirmative action, white privilege, eugenics, racial marginalization, and racial quotas. The term "white race" or "white people" entered the major European languages in the later 17th century, in the context of racialized slavery and unequal social status in the European colonies. Description of populations as "white" in reference to their skin color predates this notion and is occasionally found in Greco-Roman ethnography and other ancient or medieval sources, but these societies did not have any notion of a white, pan-European race. Scholarship on race distinguishes the modern concept from pre-modern descriptions, which focused on physical complexion rather than race.

Spanning a land mass of 238,535 km2 (92,099 sq mi), Ghana is bordered by the Ivory Coast in the west, Burkina Faso in the north, Togo in the east and the Gulf of Guinea and Atlantic Ocean in the south. Ghana means "Warrior King" in the Soninke language.The first permanent state in the territory of present-day Ghana dates back to the 11th century. Numerous kingdoms and empires emerged over the centuries, of which the most powerful was the Kingdom of Ashanti. Beginning in the 15th century, numerous European powers contested the area for trading rights, with the British ultimately establishing control of the coast by the late 19th century. Following over a century of native resistance, Ghana's current borders were established by the 1900s as the British Gold Coast. It became independent of the United Kingdom on 6 March 1957.Ghana's population of approximately 28 million spans a variety of ethnic, linguistic and religious groups. According to the 2010 census, 71.2% of the population was Christian, 17.6% was Muslim, and 5.2% practiced traditional faiths. Its diverse geography and ecology ranges from coastal savannahs to tropical rain forests. Ghana is a unitary constitutional democracy led by a president who is both head of state and head of the government. Ghana's growing economic prosperity and democratic political system have made it a regional power in West Africa. It is a member of the Non-Aligned Movement, the African Union, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Group of 24 (G24) and the Commonwealth of Nations.

The term was coined in 1944 by Raphael Lemkin. It is defined in Article 2 of the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (CPPCG) of 1948 as "any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: killing members of the group; causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; deliberately inflicting on the groups conditions of life, calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; [and] forcibly transferring children of the group to another group."The preamble to the CPPCG states that "genocide is a crime under international law, contrary to the spirit and aims of the United Nations and condemned by the civilized world" and that "at all periods of history genocide has inflicted great losses on humanity."Determining what historical events constitute a genocide and which are merely criminal or inhuman behavior is not a clear-cut matter. In nearly every case where accusations of genocide have circulated, partisans of various sides have fiercely disputed the details and interpretation of the event, often to the point of depicting wildly different versions of the facts.
