Africans must invest in defence technologies for their own security By Lord Aikins Adusei

The killing of Gaddafi on 20 October 2011 by NATO came as a shock to most Africans. While it is regrettable that he died such a terrible death, he was partly responsible for his own misfortune. He failed to build the defence capabilities that could defend Libya against the country’s many European and North American enemies. While Libya under Gaddafi had some of the best weapons in Africa, these weapons were not Libya made. They were designed and built in Europe and America. In other words, Gaddafi relied on military technologies developed by France, Britain, Italy, Russia and the United States. Despite the billions of dollars of oil money, Gaddafi didn’t help Libya to develop a sophisticated indigenous defence industry capable of producing some of the world’s best defence systems

Proximus runs tests of 5G internet

Written by | November 16, 2016 | 0
State-owned telecoms company Proximus has begun testing the next generation of super-fast mobile internet. The tests of the 5G system took place earlier this week in Antwerp, but the company has said it will concentrate in future on Brussels. The new 5G offers speeds up to 100 times faster than the current 4G – as much as 70 GB a second – the equivalent of an entire high-definition film in a matter of seconds. The advance is needed, according to head of technology Geert Standaert, because of the enormous growth in demand for mobile internet. Smartphones have become the norm as providers offer deep discounts in return for payment plans. And in the near future, with the so-called Internet of Things, apparatus like security cameras, home heating systems and self-driving

Trump Beats Clinton To Take White House By BBC

Written by | November 9, 2016 | 0
Donald Trump will become the 45th US president after a stunning victory over Democrat Hillary Clinton, the Associated Press news agency reports. The Republican nominee’s projected victory came down to a handful of key swing states, despite months of polling that favoured Mrs Clinton. The battlegrounds of Florida, Ohio and North Carolina cleared the way for his Brexit-style upset. Global markets plummeted, with the Dow set to open 800 points down. Mr Trump’s projected victory in Wisconsin put him over the 270 out of 538 electoral college votes needed to win the White House. The US president-elect took to the stage at his victory rally in New York and said: “I just received a call from Secretary Clinton. She congratulated us on our victory.” “It is time for us to come together as one

Donald Trump promised to work to “bind the wounds of division” and bring Americans together as the next president of the United States as he claimed victory in the wee hours of Wednesday morning. “I say it is time for us to come together as one united people,” said Trump, marking the end of the divisive and intensely vitriolic 2016 presidential election. “I pledge to every citizen of our land that I will be president for all Americans and this is so important to me.” Trump began that process by congratulating his opponent Hillary Clinton on her “very, very hard-fought campaign” and said Americans “owe her a major debt of gratitude” for her decades of public service. He said Clinton called him to concede the race and to congratulate Trump on his victory. Trump emerged on

Tennis: Murray crowned king by ATP

Written by | November 9, 2016 | 0
The ATP on Monday crowned Andy Murray king of the tennis world but the Scot must now plot how to stop Novak Djokovic grabbing back the number one place at the Tour Finals. The 29-year-old Murray — the oldest player to become number one for the first time — won the Paris Masters on Sunday and immediately headed back to London to prepare for the finals. “It might only be for one week. So I might as well try and enjoy it because I could lose it at the Tour Finals and never be there again,” said Murray. Murray, who beat American John Isner 6-3, 6-7 (4/7), 6-4 in Paris for his eighth tournament win of the year and fourth in a row, should be top for at least two weeks. Murray is 405 points above Djokovic in the new rankings. The Serb — who had been number one for 122

America’s Trump Problem

Written by | October 25, 2016 | 0
Donald trump poses a real problem for the United States. For hardly ever has there been a candidate nominated for the presidency by one of America’s major parties – the Democrats and the Republicans – who states openly that the election in which he’s running will be “rigged” and that he will only “accept” the result if hewins. In actual fact, such a declaration ought to be treasonable, for American democracy depends on the candidates agreeing to accept election results. Germane to the “result”, of course, is the court process, which allows candidates to challenge in court, aspects of the election that, according to them, breached the electoral laws. To mount a legal challenge in court implies that one has accepted the “partial result” but is pursuing the normal
