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

Nairobi - Massive migration from rural to urban Africa is threatening to grow mega-cities across the continent with potentially devastating consequences, a conference has heard. The alarming predictions and dire warnings came at the opening of the fourth Africities meeting of African city planners in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi, itself one of the metropolises endangered by rapid and unchecked growth.

2. Business: How to Manage a Small Business
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The world of business can be a difficult one, particularly for those entering the business world as owners or managers of a small business.

Fortunately, there are a number of resources online that can ease this transition. The United States Small Business Administration has created this resource that is designed to give business owners a basic overview of how to manage, market, and lead their business. The site is divided into several discrete sections, including Management for Growth, Leadership and Marketing & Sales. Within each section, visitors can read essays that address such topics as the management of employees, buying a franchise, equity financing, and strategic planning.

One of the highlights here is a free online growth strategies course. The site is rounded out by an area that provides information about some of the Administrations special initiatives designed to help women, minorities, and veterans. Visit this site.

 

Editor's Note: The Delamere Group offer many helpful suggestions on starting and running a small business. Visit our webpage on Business Services.

8. Education: National Archives of Australia
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

How is a nation formed? That question alone has vexed political scientists, historians, and aspiring nation-builders for centuries. The answer is often quite complex, and only in rare cases do we have a complete answer. The National Archives of Australia has recently created this website which explores the various documents that tell about the creation and formation of their country as a commonwealth.

The homepage presents a map of the country, divided into its contemporary political divisions, allowing visitors to click on each area to read primary documents that provide insight into each locale. Areas such as New South Wales include transcripts and original documents, such as the secret instructions to Captain James Cook on what to do if he finds land and the New South Wales Courts Act of 1787. Other sections of the site include Pathways, which allow users to delve into these documents in a thematic fashion (related to issues surrounding land and the like) and a basic timeline that begins in 60,000 BC and continues to 1836. Visit this site.
