COVID-19 is awful. But Climate crises will be worse.

While the discussions increase on vaccine and best vaccination process roadmaps, the Pandemic caused a significant global crisis and has shocked the world, causing a tragic number of deaths, making people afraid to leave home, and leading to economic hardship not seen in many generations. Its effects are rippling across the world. But still we have to accept two things: First, in the last 120 years the world has seen worse tragic loss life, namely with two world-wars (1914-1918 and 1939-1945), several local wars (Vietnam and Korea), and political motivated atrocities.  Now, one would not imagine that in just a few decades, the same description will fit another global crisis: the  climate change crises . As awful as this pandemic is, climate change crises will be worse. It is obvious that only very few can put the context of COVID-19 near to climate change crises or to even see a problem like climate change crises right now. When disaster strikes, it is human nature to worry only about

The Spread of Surveillance Tech in Africa - A Security Concern beyond checks and balances

The spread of surveillance technology hits Africa in a very fragile time and it is going hand in hand with the illusion that the world wide web (internet) is providing the people to have free speech - and ultimately help them to reach freedom and Democracy. In fact, the world community needs to approach the Internet in a new and disruptive way, as we need a total re-shaping and a new governing landscape of the internet if we do not want the world wide web potentially become a tool of repression to humanity. Unfortunately, this type of repression is happening right now in big scale and undermines in many ways the way forward to built those needed resilient civil societies, such as in Africa. A detailed review on the danger and misuse of the internet and surveillance technology during the recent manipulated elections in Uganda is elaborated in this article =>  https://africacenter.org/spotlight/surveillance-technology-in-africa-security-concerns/ Aside of this issue to rebuild the i

Cyber Security - Vulnerability of Democracy

2021 is just a few days old, but we are already deep inside of a world where political news and developments around us leave many speechless and even more of us insecure where this all is hitting to. And those who hope and pray for a better life, being even more scared what to come their way.  Lucky those of us, who are "apolitical" one could believe. But the reality is, that no one on this planet can afford anymore to be non-political or 'apolitical'.  We can not afford anymore to be apolitical, because our core foundation of Democracy, free speech and human rights are at threat. Those foundations are also about the content we create and share as it is the nature we live in, hence its a clear and present danger to our society, our communities as the internet is also the source of our "knowledge" that we share between us - an internet that many of us use and are depending on for steering our daily life, pleasure or business, or for education. Moreover, we wi

How To Change Now?

Dear Friends, Business Partners, Supporters and Visitors: Regardless how You have come to this site, hopefully you will find this read 'interesting' enough to come back again. As most people all have the wish to inform themselves about what is going on around us, let's be aware that anything we are "offered" on our daily internet visits and especially in social media, nothing (of the selection "offered") is coming to us by "accident" - and that the internet sites suggested to you and me today are very much an invisble 'pre-selection' done by 'invisible' hands that shuffle the cards for us; the cards we receive are based on artifical intelligence algorithms and our former movements in the world wide web. Moreover, it will be of intrinsic importance, how we go about the internet in the future, how we select and browse on (y)our site visits, how you type the "key words" and which search engine we use aside of how we sear

STEP By STEP - From Concept To Reality

John F. Kennedy  „Es gibt nur eines, was auf Dauer teurer ist als Bildung: Keine Bildung“  „There is only one thing which is more expensive than education, and that is - no education.“  Nelson Mandela  „Bildung ist die mächtigste Waffe, um die Welt zu verändern.“  „Education is the mightiest weapon to change the world.“  Benjamin Franklin  „Eine Investition in Wissen bringt noch immer die besten Zinsen“  „An investment in knowlege brings always the best interests.“ Unsere Motivation ist es, konkret zu helfen ... und das heisst Schritt für Schritt . Mit den vielen häufig tragischen Seenotrettungs-Aktionen im Mittelmeer, bei denen viele Tausende aus wirtschaftlicher und politischer Not fliehenden Menschen ertranken, hat viele von uns wachgerüttelt, etwas zu tun. Wichtig erscheint es uns bis heute, unsere ganze Kraft dafür einzusetzen, jungen Menschen in Afrika eine konkrete (Aus-) Bildung zu geben, die es ihnen ermöglicht, Wurzeln in ihrem Heimatland zu schlagen, um nicht woanders eine n
