As part of Africa Day celebration on 25 May, Meta announced the third iteration of its pan-African ‘Made by Africa, Loved by the World’ campaign. Themed “Rising Stars”, this year’s edition aims to amplify the voices and stories of eight rising talents from across Africa, who are building a global presence and changing the way Africa is viewed on the international stage.

Representing several creative industries ranging from music, fashion, lifestyle, to art, this year’s self-shot ‘vlog-styled’ short stories provide a glimpse of the creators’ world and highlights how being African inspires their creativity. Alongside this, Meta is running a dedicated community Reels challenge – #ShareYourAfrica #AfricaMade, encouraging the African community on Instagram to celebrate their authenticity – whether through dance, music, fashion, food or art. For Africa Day Meta will be holding a fireside chat with a selection of key figures from across the continent – exploring the global impact of Africa’s youth and how platforms like Instagram are helping to fuel their global appeal.

Commenting, Kezia Anim-Addo, Director of Communications, Sub-Saharan Africa, Meta, said: “We’re thrilled to celebrate Africa Day this year by amplifying the stories of just some of our talented rising stars from across the continent who are shining a spotlight on African culture, music, food, dance, fashion, and so much more in their own voices. Every day, we see young African creatives use Meta technologies, like Instagram and Facebook, to share their stories, express themselves, and bring people together in incredible and inspiring ways. We’re proud that our technologies have a role to play in amplifying these voices and stories, both locally and globally.”

  2. Bitcoin was not the first digital currency proposal, but it was the first cryptocurrency based on the P2P (Peer-to-Peer) system that achieved any market success. Block Zero, the first block in the BTC chain was created on January 3, 2009, forming the origin of the Bitcoin network. The source code was made available 6 days later by the creator, or a team of currency makers, under the pseudonym “Satoshi Nakamoto”. The first Bitcoin exchange was established on October 2009 – at that time you could buy BTC 1309.02 for USD 1.

    You can withdraw DOGE tokens into your personal wallet and use them to pay for goods and services. With crypto cards, peer-to-peer (P2P) payments, gift cards, and merchants accepting DOGE, you can buy several products using DOGE. And what can you invest in with these accounts? A good place to start may be using these accounts to invest in highly diversified, low-cost index funds. They may not be as exciting as Dogecoin — don’t expect any 13,000% gains here — but they’re a lot less volatile and, in the long term, returns are more consistent. Over the past several decades, the S&P 500’s annualized average returns comes out to about 10%. The answer depends on the current price and your own investment goals. Put simply, buying Dogecoin, selling Dogecoin, and trading DOGE are all the exact same process. It’s really just your personal investing intentions that defines whether now is a good time to invest or not.

  3. © 2022 GSP – Powered by Emetrics. Despite playing just four games, Ronaldo clinched the top honours as he scored five goals. Czech Republic’s Patrik Schick also ended the tournament with five goals but the award went to Ronaldo via the tie-breaker of assists. Schick registered none while Ronaldo registered one. If there is more than one player with the same number of goals at the top of the chart, since 2008 the Golden Boot has been awarded to the player who has contributed the most assists. If two players are level at the top in terms of goals and assists, the tie-breaker is the least amount of minutes on the pitch. Spain’s Fernando Torres won the 2012 Golden Boot with three goals and one assist in 189 minutes, just beating out Germany’s Mario Gomez with the same numbers over 282 minutes. The Bronze Boot went to Russia’s Alan Dzagoev, another man who managed three goals (but no assists).
    In other West Ham news, Rice has been tipped to snub advances from Arsenal and Manchester City to remain at the London Stadium. With the EFL transfer window still open, it remains to be seen whether Leeds will make a move for Cantwell. The Liverpool youth product from Bolton must be keen to play regular football approaching his prime and it seems Leeds could benefit. The Irons are expected to sell captain and star midfielder Declan Rice this summer, and are also willing to sell fellow starter Tomas Soucek. Rodrigo and Aaronson make way for Rutter and Summerville as Leeds make a double change. Sign up to our United newsletter so you never miss an update from Old Trafford this season. The USA international joined Leeds last summer from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig, making 26 appearances in all competitions during his debut campaign at Elland Road.

    Электронные сервисы упростили многие процедуры для автовладельцев.
    Однако граждане не знают о многих возможностях из-за
    плохой навигации на сайте.
    Прошли те злосчастные времена, когда для регистрации автомобиля приходилось стоять в двухдневных очередях и ходить по различным контактным центрам
    со списками документов, которые так и не удалось оформить.
    Нет смысла искать знакомого сотрудника
    ГИБДД, звонить другу или платить посреднику за помощь.
    Практически все процедуры в ГИБДД можно предварительно
    оформить за две минуты через Интернет, а сотрудник ГИБДД
    просто приезжает и лично расписывается.

    Рядовые автовладельцы, не подписанные на “Активный гражданин” и не следящие за обновлениями на сайте “Госуслуги”,

    появилось на сайте ГИБДД за последние
