For the better part of my daughters' development, I have been fortunate to keep them clear of this mess in which I grew up. This year, a family member made the suggestion that my kids are better off inside the country instead of in Korea.  I did not respond.

"a 2011 report by the Southern and Eastern African Consortium for Monitoring Educational Quality found that only 32% of grade six mathematics teachers in South Africa had desirable levels of mathematics content knowledge, compared with 90% in Kenya and 76% in Zimbabwe. "

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has released its Global Information Technology Report 2015, which ranked South Africa last in the quality of mathematics and science education.

South Africa also finished close to last – 139 out of 143 countries – when looking at the overall quality of its education system.
South Africa’s mathematics and science education quality was ranked as the worst in the world by the World Economic Forum’s Global Information Technology Report 2015.

And the traveler, pointing with his hand to a vast field, asked the man saying "what is regret"? And the #cyclist answered, it is riding 20 km before hitting the start button on your #Garmin

I just joined Climb for Nepal on Strava. Who's with me? http://app.strava.com/challenges/climb-for-nepal
We’re partnering with MORE Than Sport and Everesting.cc to support victims of the Nepalese earthquake. Climb 8,848m, the height of Mt. Everest, over many rides or all in one day!

World Economic Forum (WEF) report that ranked the country last out of 148 countries for the quality of its maths and science education.

The WEF’s 2014 Global Information Technology Report also ranked South Africa 146th for the overall quality of its education, below a host of other African countries including Swaziland, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Kenya, Malawi, Uganda, Rwanda, Senegal, Nigeria, Tanzania, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Mali.

Only Yemen – at 147th position – and Libya – at 148th – fared worse.

A report published by the World Economic Forum (WEF) has ranked the quality of South Africa's maths and science education last out of 148 countries. But is the ranking an accurate reflection of the state of schooling in the country?

South African commander in thief, Jacob Zuma ...

Under public pressure, Zuma nominated the minister of police – a Zuma appointee – to determine how much he should repay.

In a two-hour news conference Nhleko made a painstaking – and at times bizarre – examination of the findings of three inquiries into the matter.

He concluded that the swimming pool was a “firepool” needed to fight any blaze at the mainly thatched compound, while the cattle enclosure and chicken run were necessary to prevent the animals tripping motion detectors as they roamed about.

A visitors’ centre was also a security feature, he said, and what the public protector described as an amphitheatre was in fact a series of terraced retaining walls.

My country is more and more fucked up because the colonial masters allowed stooges to occupy seats in parliament, with a few provisos: main one being, never alter anything, keep the machine running as it has been for 300 years.. if anyone asks any questions, accuse them of racism, divert the argument, never admit to anything, remain unaccountable. My beloved African nation deserves a revolution, but it's people are fooled so badly, they don't have a clue how to start one. I guess things have to get much worse before it gets any better

Qhubeka is an isiZulu word which translates into English as "Keep going", "Hang in there" or into Korean as "Fighting!" I'll have to Qhubeka tomorrow on a 124km 1,850m elevation #strava #fondoday to Muju. I'm all juiced up with 'Qhubeka VeJuice', Banana Milk, and Strawberry Milk in the fridge. Now for some zeezee
