What Obama should have done...

By now it all should be like this...

Angola’s President daughter is an hippo!

Millennium, Portugal’s largest privately-owned bank, said on Wednesday after the closing bell it had agreed to sell the stake for 164 million euros ($235.8 million) to Santoro Financial Holdings, which is owned by the daughter of Angola’s president. [Forexpros]

George Ayittey has an excellent talk on TED (transcript here) where he splits Africa’s recent history in two generations: cheetahs and hippos. While cheetahs are the younger generation more willing to change things and less tolerant to issues such as corruption, hippos, the older generation, are the ruling elite with their mindset still attached to colonialism and imperialism, in a way the only thing they’ve done was replacing the European rulers by their inner circle.

Despite Isabel dos Santos, President’s daughter and shareholder in most of the companies operating in Angola, being a young woman, hardly anyone would identify her as part of the cheetah generation that’s trying to change things in Africa.

The mother of all wars

Georgia, the country not the U.S. state, gets attacked by its colossal neighbor with a colossal army in support of two small separatist republics ([1], [2]) for humanitarian reasons, the same “support” that has been brutally denied to a less fortunate neighbor. Like always the Paladin of freedom has come out to pledge support to one of the sides.

The actors are different and set is located elsewhere, but in the end the plot is always the same…

No Valentines for you!


One of the things I agree with Islam, even if for different reasons: Valentine’s Day should be banned from the face of the Earth, it’s just another excuse to spend money. Just another capitalist holiday…
