Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has commended President Mugabe for resisting alleged political interference by the Western powers, pledging Tehran’s continued support for Zimbabwe. Dr Simba Makoni, interim leader of the newly launched Mavambo/Kusile/Dawn political movement, has called for massive demonstrations similar to the Red Shirt protests in Thailand against the inclusive government, which he says has failed.

i'm not angry...just conscious!...thanks...
let us re-claim our birthright, our images, and our collective power...without apology...without asking permission...now It feels good to be back. It has been quite a few days since my last blog. I happened to have a virus in my laptop. It took a little longer than I expected to get it repaired; I am not complaining as I understand that everyone is busy and doing the best they know how to do. Thanks Art! He does great work if anyone needs computer work or services, I will happily refer him. Lately, I have spent a great deal of time reading, as I feel sometimes like I am on image sensory overload. I have to tune out in ... market research, surveys and trends
african business and reporting - digging deep on disclosure
The new GRI guidelines for non-financial disclosure will help make sustainability reports more relevant, say two leading South African mining companies. Hundreds of companies, African-based ones included, have for years struggled with how to report on their non-financial performance. Since 1997 the Global Reporting Initiative and its guidelines have aimed to provide a framework for companies to report on their social and environmental impacts. But in trying to capture the complexity of corporate non-financial performance, the GRI guidelines have asked companies to report on an often bewildering array of indicators. About 850 ... market research, surveys and trends

Increasing black ownership: moves under way to encourage black ...
After decades of underrepresentation in hotel industry ownership, African Americans are finally beginning to get a foothold in the business. However, among the more than 80,000 hotels and inns throughout the U.S., there are only some 50 mainstream properties with African American principal owners. Historically, the large capital outlays necessary to own a hotel have limited African American participation in this industry. According to Andy Ingraham, president of the National Association of Black Hotel Owners, Operators and Developers (NABHOOD, www.nabhood.org ), construction costs for a new hotel can range from $40,000 to ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Business Report - News - Tighter BEE laws in the pipeline, Chamsa ...
The government intended to tighten legislation aimed at increasing black ownership in companies by making it harder for non-compliant businesses to get government contracts, a senior official said yesterday. The country is trying to increase black participation in its economy through its black economic empowerment (BEE) policy. One of its aims is to require companies vying for state business to meet certain racial quotas. But Lionel October, the deputy director-general of the department of trade and industry, told a business conference that existing laws made it possible for certain companies to win contracts on competitiveness ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Specialty plates sale pushed back
Motorists willing to pay potentially big bucks for a unique license plate number will have to JUST W8 — that's "just wait," in license plate-speak. An auction to sell the rights to specialty Texas license plates with phrases such as COWBOYS, GIDDY UP and GO HORNS has been postponed. The event will now be Jan. 13 at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. It was originally set for Sept. 22. The company that manages Texas' specialty-plate program, My Plates, said the auction date was changed to give bidders a better selection of plate designs. The postponement had nothing to do with recent criticisms of the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

With another summer ending, the time has come to ask the perennial question: Could this be the year higher education finally embraces the e-book? Some think that developments since the last buying cycle, particularly the arrival of Apple's iPad computing tablet, might foreshadow an especially good year for the electronic texts. CourseSmart, the e-textbook consortium comprising five major publishers, says it has sold four times more e-textbooks in 2009-10 than it did the previous year (although it would not say how many copies that translates to). CourseSmart would not disclose how e-book sales are going so far this season, ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Magazine, for a hefty, though secret, sum. (Initial reports indicate that the deal may have been valued at $170 million.) As a respected African-American publication and a household name, Essence Magazine became an attractive acquisition target for a mainstream media conglomerate. No deal seemed to indicate the power of the African-American brand better than the sale of Black Entertainment Television (BET) in 2000 to media giant Viacom for the purchase price of $3 billion. The two deals took two established companies targeting the African-American consumer out of the hands of black ownership and control and placed it firmly ...

Okay, I'm fed up. Every morning I open up my mailbox just to find rabid hate mail from people. Not spam, just people who don't like what I write on various discussion forums or on mailing lists. WTF? I can understand disagreeing with people and even getting upset, but why can't people focus on what I'm saying rather than attacking me? And, finally, what's your advice: should I "flame on" and attack them back or just delete their messages and grumble to myself about it?
