1. Business: Cheap Loans for Africa
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

2. Business: China's trade and investment with Africa
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Johannesburg - China's industrialisation would help stimulate Africa's agriculture and services sectors, says a Standard Chartered Bank (SCB) report released last week. The SCB paper says China's trade and investment with Africa are expected to benefit not only the natural resources sector but also services such as tourism, with a share of the Chinese tourism market estimated at 100 million visitors globally in the next 20 years.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

A R12-billion monorail will be built between Johannesburg and Soweto in the next two years, it was announced on Wednesday. "By 2009 no one from Soweto should have to wait more than 15 minutes for transport," Gauteng Finance and Economic Affairs MEC Paul Mashatile said at the launch of the project in Sandton. Work on the 44.7km monorail and its 39 stations will start in September. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link.

4. Education: Discover Antarctica
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Antarctica is arguably the continent that most people know the least about, so it is nice to find out that the Royal Geographical Society (in partnership with the British Antarctic Survey) has created this website which explores all aspects of life on this landmass. The Imagining Antarctica area is a fine place to start, and visitors can watch a short video clip about the continent, test their existing knowledge with a short quiz, and then participate in a being there activity. Other engaging sections include A Changing Climate, Living There Today and What Future?

The site also lists all of the resources by format, including audio files, video clips, Word documents, and images. Finally, the site also includes a Teachers Area, which offers a number of learning activities for students and teacher notes that are correlated to each of the main sections of the site. Visit this site.

5. Education: World of Jack London
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Jack London's life included trips to the Yukon, a front-row seat at the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 and many journeys aboard his beloved sailing vessel, the Snark. During his short life, London found time to write over a dozen novels, numerous short stories, and hundreds of articles on socialism and other weighty matters of his day. Later, he would also become the hero of another literary Jack, who happened to enjoy wandering on the road and in various subterranean locales.

Maintained by Dave Hartzell, this site is a virtual cornucopia of all things Jack London, including full-text version of his novels, rare articles penned by London, and copious amounts of information about his family and his ranch in the Sonoma Valley. Visitors can also look over a number of scholarly works related to London, including a complete bibliography of his poetry and the first English-language translation of Dr. Vil Bykov's two volume biography of London. Finally, visitors should not depart the site without taking a look at London's first published story, Two Gold Bricks, which is also available here. Visit this site.
