Here on this part of the web page I will be placing more additional logos and text links from those groups whose function is to assist Interantional Students / Scholars.  Down below, I will likewise adding those OnLine social and cultural programs I am spinning off and creating from my  from my Night LIfe ( NightLife ), RMC Online Internet Network base. 
I am also looking for news press releases.  So if you have an item of Dance, Theatre, Social, Cultural, Crafts, Food,  Performance, Scientific Discovery, or items which deals with the scope of this International Students / Scholars OnLine program, including the Academia ~ International Students / Scholars ~ News ~ interests please email me -  see the following.........
The InterCultural Communications aspect of this site, as well as all the others websites in this cross-webbing process [ as per the footers below ] is when you take your  [ the International Students / Scholars who are reading this ] home country experiences and compare them with both the various cultural insights [ suich as the blogs on the right hand side bars ] of Americana, and the included Activities Resources and see what are the unique differences.  This prepares you immediately to understand the operating functional scope of InterCutlrual Communications - by such initial social and cultural comparisons; the personal experience of seeing  differences.
It is these unique difference with which you have to offer your fellow American Students / Scholars.  The methods in which you employ are the various forms of InterCutlrual Communications.  Thus a traditional form of national dance and its various stylings are just as significant idenity realities as lets say a seminar on your national water resources.  Both gives a more complete of not only the quality of your national character, but even more important the key factors in its character. 
Thus InterCultural Communications are employed by:
Two: Employment of the various media.
Three: Course Work.
Four:  Food.
Five: Seminars.
Six: Fashions.
Seven:  Smells.
Eight:  Physical and Sexual Interactions.
Nine:  The idea of a personal faith - religious or secular.
Ten:  The perception of both human knowledge and science.
It is not the substance which should be the determined factor, but the mode of both personal pride, tempered with the adult posture of humility, which all of us have, and the willingness to share what is in fact the uniqueness of  who you actually are; the national character of your own nation.   It is not the seeking difference which is the end, but the full psychic impact of the resulting self-discovery processes which emotionally and intellegently is likewise created within both the observers and participants of InterCultrual Communications.

Government urged to commit publicly to press freedom after Mogadishu roundtable

Reporters Without Borders today urged the transitional federal government to publicly demonstrate its commitment to respect press freedom in Somalia after an historic four-day roundtable on freedom of expression was successfully held this week in Mogadishu by the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ).

“Now that the guns have fallen silent, important tasks can be tackled including that of turning Somalia into a country where free expression is respected by everyone and protected by the government,” the press freedom organisation said. “To show that they are committed to this, the authorities should take concrete measures such as letting Radio Warsan resume broadcasting and publicly undertaking to respect the rule of democracy in their relations with the press.”

Reporters Without Borders added: “This roundtable, which was organised with support from UNESCO, has shown that serious interlocutors, ones determined to make Somalia progress, are available to the government. This opportunity should not be missed.”

While welcoming the release of journalist Hassan Mohammed Abikar of Radio Quran Karim (The Voice of the Holy Koran) after 19 days in detention, Reporters Without Borders points out that Baidoa-based Radio Warsan has been arbitrarily silenced since 7 January. Abikar, his station’s correspondent in the Lower Shabelle region, has been able to go back to work in Afgoye (30 km outside Mogadishu) but no one has explained why he was held incommunicado for so long after being arrested by government militiamen in the southwestern city of Baidoa.

The three-day roundtable on “the promotion and protection of freedom of expression” was held in Mogadishu’s Sahafi Hotel from 19 to 22 January by the NUSOJ, which is Reporters Without Borders’ partner organisation in Somalia. Some 50 delegates from all of southern Somalia’s provinces and from the northern breakaway state of Somaliland took part.

The participants concluded their work by issuing a statement calling on the authorities to draft and adopt legislation for the media that adheres to democratic principles, and to facilitate professional and ethical training for journalists. The statement also urged the international community to include media development in its assistance programmes for Somalia. The delegates also resolved to launch the Somali Forum for Freedom of Expression (SOFFE).

Reporters Without Borders hails Somali information minister Ali Ahmed Jama Jengeli’s determination to cooperate with the media and the constructive participation of the Director-General of his ministry in the roundtable debates. Jengeli told the journalists that the government needed them.

Aralola Olamuyiwa better known as Ara is a star! She has performed all around the world yet not that many Nigerian know her music. No doubt she is popular, the girl with the long braids and the talking drum but why cant we sing any of her songs?

Ara is undoubtedly a true Nigerian diva.
