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

There are currently some 220-million Africans on the continent that are just able to meet their basic needs; however, by 2015 it is expected that these same people will become higher-level consumers with more expendable income, said Frost & Sullivan business unit leader for the chemicals, materials and food industry, Mani James. He was speaking to chemical and food industry business leaders at a session of the Growth, Innovation and Leadership 2011 Africa event, in Cape Town on Thursday.

8. Business: Investing in Africa
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

With commodity demand soaring, the world's mining companies are increasingly turning to Africa to deliver resources to growing economies. As the continent is known to harbour vast quantities of natural resources including diamonds, gold, platinum and the all-important coal and iron-ore, refocused investment in the continent comes as little surprise. Advisory firm Ernst & Young earlier this year reported that foreign direct investment (FDI) into Africa over the last decade had increased by a substantial 87%.

9. Education: Museum of the City of New York
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

The Museum of the City of New York has collected thousands of images that document the Big Apple from Aqueduct to Staten Island. Recently, they contracted with several website design companies to create this collections portal. First-time visitors will find orange-hued rows of images that represent a small fraction of their collection. Each row represents one of the five boroughs, and visitors can click on each image to get a flavor of the community.

Each image comes complete with a detailed description, along with a tab where visitors can view related images. Also, visitors can add images to their own lightbox for future reference and use. The site also includes a basic and advanced search engine, and it is worth typing in terms like "bridges", "Central Park", and "subways" to get a flavor for the offerings here. Visit this site.

10. Education: Resources for Medical Students
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

For students new to medical school, parsing out the most relevant and helpful information from a seemingly limitless supply of materials can be daunting. The University of Virginia's School of Medicine has created a set of relevant websites that can be useful for medical students and others with an interest in related fields such as anatomy, physiology, and neurology.

The links are divided into two dozen topical areas, such as "Gross Anatomy", "Nephrology", and "Surgery". Each section contains links from reliable sources, including the University of Toronto, Oxford University, and the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center. The "Gross Anatomy" area is very thorough, as it contains over twenty resources that provide an overview of anatomy, anatomical slide shows, and so on. Visit this site.
