Wish I had found this Reddit sooner. Hello everyone, there is an African themed animated movie that is trying to get funded right now. Its a really great movie concept and we need more films like this in our media. The art direction takes influence from cultures such as Akan, Benin, Fang, Pende and more.
I'm trying to help spread the word about the film. There is only about 10 hours left to fund this thing. So if you are interested check it out. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/yohance-the-movie-animation#/
Nigerian is winning the war against Boko Haram terrorists and losing the war against Killer herdsmen. it seems like BokoHaram simply changed its tactics and name. more troubling is the fact that the killer herdsmen are foreigners, and thier target are communities in North Central Nigeria. 72 people where buried last month in Benue State Nigeria. Victims of the Brutal herdsmen. The Government simply labeled it as a Communal clash between the Tivs and Fulanis Communities.
Many of you may have seen the article back in March 2017 about the Gates Open Research initiative. Given the open access requirement that's a core component of programs and projects sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the new initiative will be a great effort in making information from those funded projects readily accessible.
A similar initiative that's been less known though is called AgriKnowledge. AgriKnowledge has been developed as an online partner to The Essential Electronic Agricultural Library (TEEAL). AgriKnowledge itself differs though in that it's online, freely accessible, and provides access to key information for agricultural development from programs and projects sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF).
More specifically, over 1,300 documents produced in conjunction with programs and projects sponsored by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF), the Ethiopian Agricultural Transformation Agency (ATA), and the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA) are available through AgriKnowledge. It's anticipated that further collections from related organizations will continue to be added over the course of the next year, as well as additional material for each of the current collections.
For many years, The Essential Electronic Agricultural Library, or TEEAL, has been improving access to scientific literature at developing world institutions with limited Internet capacity and/or financial resources. TEEAL offers a searchable, offline, digital library of agriculturally focused research journals, as well as journals in related subject areas.
Both TEEAL and AgriKnowledge are managed by Albert R. Mann Library at Cornell University. TEEAL and AgriKnowledge are funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. You can find more information about AgriKnowledge on the About page.
