"Culture is the heritage of us all. some may be more interested than others in the treasures of the past, but no one can fail to take a pride in his country's participation in the story of mankind, as represented in carvings, sculpture, music, paintings and the other arts. And there is a personal commitment to this, for no man can really say he is alone: we are all joined through our identity, with the cultures which are part of the mainstream of life"
- Simon Kapwepwe, Zambian Independence Freedom Fighter

"Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm" - Winston Churchill

"Try to be the rainbow in someone else's cloud" - Maya Angelou

"Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinion drown out your inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition" - Steve Jobs

"It's Time For Africa!"

The video for the official World Cup Song by Shakira and Freshly Ground has been released.  Pretty good.  I am just wondering what flotsam and jetsam have ended up in Shakira's hair!

There is so much negative press about the World Cup.  Some good with the deportation of Argentine hooligans but there is a lot of bad. However this is not affecting the players and they seem excited to be playing in South Africa and their coaches are taking this as seriously as any other World Cup.

Here is an interesting view on the World Cup being on the African continent and in South Africa.  It touches on some of the things I have ruminated on here and here.

I just hope that everything goes well, Africa needs some good press! And football I think is just the thing to do it :)
