Africa’s Lions: Growth Traps and Opportunities for Six African Economies by Haroon Bhorat

Examining the economic forces that will shape Africa’s future.Africa’s Lions examines the economic growth experiences of six fast growing and/or economically dominant African countries. Expert African researchers offer unique perspectives into the challenges and issues in Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, and South Africa.Despite a growing body of research on African economies, very little has focused on the relationship between economic growth and employment outcomes at the detailed country level. A lack of empirical data has deprived policymakers of a robust evidence base on which to make informed decisions. By harnessing country-level household, firm, and national accounts data together with existing analytical country research—the authors have attempted to bridge this gap.The growth of the global working-age population to 2030 will be driven primarily by Africa, which means that the relationship between growth and employment should be understood within the context of each country’s projected demographic challenge and the associated implications for employment growth. A better understanding of the structure of each country’s workforce and the resulting implications for human capital development, the vulnerably employed, and the working poor, will be critical to informing the development policy agenda.As a group, the six countries profiled in Africa’s Lions will largely shape the continent’s future. Each country chapter focuses on the complex interactions between economic growth and employment outcomes, within the individual Africa’s Lions context.

The Alpha & Omega Bible Code: End-Time Surprises in Daniel, Revelation & Christ’s Wedding Parables! (White Horse Series) by Richard Ruhling

Most people have heard of the Bible code that requires a computer and software to use, but an overlooked code is found in Christ’s claim to be Alpha & Omega—the First & the Last. Those are letters in the Greek alphabet which is the basis of our New Testament.

Because Christ is also “the Word” (John 1:1,14), the first (alpha) use of a word may have a meaning or context that we should consider for end-times (omega) in order to see a deeper meaning as we credit the Bible having.

This is something that anyone can do without a computer or software, but it is helpful to have a concordance or use one online to see the first use of words. A link to an online concordance is provided.

The only book that Christ recommended when asked about the end-time was the book of Daniel and the first six chapters each have life and death issues, some of which we may expect to face.

An example of relevant information for our time from Daniel’s prophecies are found at https://islamusinprophecy.wordpress.com/ but this is just one of 10 chapters on the book of Daniel that are discussed!

Christ could not have recommended the book of Revelation for end-times because it was not written till after He ascended, but the opening verses pronounce a blessing on those who read and understand it.

Bible covenants were linked to sevens, so that Revelation with its 7 churches, 7 seals, 7 trumpets, 7 thunders is a picture of how God will keep His covenant with us.

The wedding parables are misunderstood as a rapture. God married Israel when He made a covenant with them and later said, “I am married to you,” Jeremiah 3:14. That’s how we must marry Christ when “the Bridegroom comes!” Matthew 25:6. We have been asleep with our lights out on this topic as Matthew 25:5 shows.

The wedding parables offer the richest promise in the Bible– “He will make [us] ruler over all that He has” if we meet the conditions that are explained herein. Satisfaction guaranteed!

Walking by Henry David Thoreau

In Walking, Henry David Thoreau talks about the importance of nature to mankind, and how people cannot survive without nature, physically, mentally, and spiritually, yet we seem to be spending more and more time entrenched by society. For Thoreau walking is a self-reflective spiritual act that occurs only when you are away from society, that allows you to learn about who you are, and find other aspects of yourself that have been chipped away by society.This new 2017 edition of Thoreau’s celebrated essay includes an introduction by historian Elbert Hubbard.

Hard Time: New Edition (English Shaun Trilogy Book 2) by Shaun Attwood and Jane Dixon-Smith

“Hard Time makes the Shawshank Redemption look like a holiday camp” – News of the World

As a teenager in an industrial UK town, Shaun Attwood covets the American Dream. He moves to Arizona with only student credit cards and becomes a stock-market millionaire. After throwing Ecstasy parties for thousands of ravers, Shaun bumps heads with Sammy the Bull Gravano, an Italian Mafia mass murderer, who puts a hit out on him.

The dream turns into a nightmare when a SWAT team smashes Shaun’s door down. Inside Arizona’s deadliest jail, Shaun struggles to survive against an unpredictable backdrop of gang violence and sickening human-rights violations.
Over time and bolstered by the love and support of his fiancée and family, he uses incarceration for learning and introspection.

With a tiny pencil sharpened on a cell door, Shaun documents the conditions: dead rats in the food, cockroaches crawling in his ears at night, murders and riots… Smuggled out of maximum-security and posted online, his writing shines the international media spotlight on the plight of the prisoners in Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s jail.

Join best-selling author Shaun Attwood on a harrowing voyage into the darkest recesses of human existence in Hard Time, the second book from the English Shaun trilogy.

Hard Time was televised worldwide on Nat Geo Channel as an episode of Banged Up Abroad called Raving Arizona.
