From the Daily Sun, Nigeria’s King of the Tabloids:

Bimbo Akinyele
If by age 29-32, I am still single? Then it must be a curse. Ehn! God forbid sha. That is not my portion. I know there are ladies who are in the habit of snubbing men. I am really sorry for them. They don’t realise that, unfortunately, we are just a seasonal merchandise. Once your season comes and goes, and you fail to grab it, you are likely to bite your fingers in regret. For me o, I will not wait until it is late before I start to pray and fast. It is very important and I know it.

From the Mail & Guardian:

“Let us eliminate these warlords and set up a peaceful administration supported by the vast majority of people in Mogadishu,” Sulley said, prompting the crowd to chant angry slogans denouncing the warlords.

“Down with the agents of America and down with agents promoting Satanic teaching,” they yelled, according to an Agence France-Presse correspondent on the scene.

From Lens Culture:

Canadian photogapher Edward Burtynsky worked through diplomatic channels to gain access to photograph many sites undergoing enormous change. With his large format camera, over the course of three years, Burtysnky has captured the vast scale and minute details of monumental transformations of a society. He documents today’s “factories for the world”; the dumping grounds for the hand-recycling of the world’s e-waste; the unprecedented migrations of millions of humans toward brand new urban environments; and the ecological footprint of Three Gorges Dam, the largest dam on the planet that forced the relocation and threatened the livelihoods of more than 1.13 million people.

From Hamburger Eyes:

When opening Hamburger Eyes Photo Magazine you enter a pictorial history of both the unseen and iconic moments of everyday life. It is organized in such a way that it has become many things to many people. As a photo journal, we share our travels and experiences. As a photo diary, we share our accomplishments and heartaches. And as a photo album, we share our families and friends and reach people on a level they have been familiar with since their first birthday party. Our publication is currently composed of black + white photography. We have contributions from photographers of all levels. Inspired by the traditions that began with National Geographic and Life Magazine, we hope to revitalize the sensation of photography as a craft as well as a tool to record and document.

From ProductDose:

We went and checked out the opening of the I Am 8 Bit exhibition last night. This group show is the second annual exhibition of ‘80s gaming-inspired art, bringing together over 100 artists in a variety of mediums. The exhibition, co-curated by Jon M. Gibson, is on through May 19 at Gallery Nineteen Eighty Eight in Los Angeles, and if you have any interest in the impact of classic video games on contemporary pop culture, you are going to want to check this show out.

From Magnum Photos:

Alex Majoli’s work in Marseille finds its form here in a series of diptychs: a “portrait in black” appears next to a close view of a nocturne close-up landscape of areas under work in Marseille. They were made for the Ministry of Culture about the social-architectural transformation of the city of Marseille called EUROMED.

From this juxtaposition results an impression of beauty, strength, and visual pleasure. It doesn’t come only from a visually pleasant image, but from a unity, a meeting of intents that are both at the origin of and enriched by the specific process of creation of this particular project. The combination of the two pictures is sustained by the strong priciple of the personal experience, constant in the work of Alex Majoli, and by the unique taste and direction: always wanting to go to the core point, always having the essential questions, questions with no answer, always being “clinical” as Alex himself says.

The black background in the portraits is an effect created during the shooting, in full daylight. With a very limited exposure and a strong flash. The people in the portraits are mostly people doing the same routine trip in the streets of Marseille center. Some are passing by here by very chance. Alex isn’t interested in the posture but by the position: where are they? The exact position on Earth retrieved by the GPS is the unique complementary information given by the photographer. Can the latitude and longitude give us an answer?

The same artificial light characterizes the landscapes, photographed at night, while the city is sleeping. Alex went back during the night with the same GPS navigator. As the person is no longer the character of the plot of life imposed by the context, “the landscapes are not really landscapes.” They are small pieces of reality, just as we are. -Lorenza Orlando

From the Cape Argus:

Shoppers ran for their lives when bloody warfare between two rival Cape Flats gangs spilled over into a crowded Wynberg shopping mall.

The confrontation, between members of rival Hanover Park gangs the Ghetto Kids and the Americans, began outside the magistrate’s court where a gang leader was appearing yesterday.

It then spilled into the streets and the busy Maynard Mall.

Three men were stabbed.

From the New York Times:

“During the first week that the additional on-site racks were in service, 43 percent of the Star Tribunes removed from those racks were not paid for. For the second week the rate was 41 percent. This is called ‘pilferage’ in our business; but put more plainly, it is theft, pure and simple.”

Mr. Alexander proceeded apace: “Taking more than one newspaper from a rack when you have only inserted enough money for one paper is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Employees who steal newspapers will put their jobs at risk. There is zero tolerance when it comes to stealing from our company, even if it is a 25-cent newspaper.”

When the memo landed on Romenesko, the journalism site, the company, rather than realizing that it had stepped in something unwholesome, began telling employees that the leaker would be found out and dealt with. The sideshow left some employees embarrassed and wondering why a debate over free personal copies of the paper was obscuring the fact that the public was buying the newspaper — and almost any newspaper — less frequently.

From PDN:

In a year when journalism from Hurricane Katrina dominated the Pulitzer Prizes, the staff of The Dallas Morning News won the 2006 Pulitzer for breaking news photography for coverage of the hurricane. It is the second time in three years The Dallas Morning News has claimed the breaking news photography prize.

Todd Heisler of the (Denver) Rocky Mountain News won the feature photography Pulitzer Prize for the “Final Salute” project. It is Heisler’s second Pulitzer. In 2003, he was part of the Rocky Mountain News team that won the breaking news photography prize for coverage of wildfires.

From the New York Times:

A practiced escape artist, Charles Taylor knows he is better off in Europe than in Sierra Leone, where thousands of people would happily administer vigilante justice. Any escape from the protection of the United Nations detention center in Freetown would be a death sentence.

From the New York Times:

The documentary honors the victims of the Armenian genocide and also pays tribute to dissidents in Turkey who are brave enough to speak out despite government censorship. And that makes it all the odder that so many public television stations here censored the follow-up program as soon as a few lobby groups complained.

From the New York Times:

But Mazher Mahmood, a reporter whose modus operandi is to dress up as a wealthy Arab businessman and secretly record conversations with his unwitting victims, recently met his match in George Galloway, a member of the British Parliament and frequent critic of Israel and the United States.

From the New York Times:

Why do bureaucrats insist on spending the taxpayers’ money to keep aging government paperwork from the taxpayers?

The question has arisen anew because of the discovery that military and intelligence agencies have pulled some 55,000 pages of decades-old documents from public access at the National Archives. Some documents were photocopied long ago by researchers. In the case of the redacted 1946 memorandum, the State Department had already published it in the multivolume history “Foreign Relations of the United States.”

Machael DeLong, from the New York Times:

This is why the much-repeated claims that Mr. Rumsfeld didn’t “give us enough troops” in Iraq ring hollow. First, such criticisms ignore that the agreed-upon plan was for a lightning operation into Baghdad. In addition, logistically it would have been well nigh impossible to bring many more soldiers through the bottleneck in Kuwait. And doing so would have carried its own risk: you cannot sustain a fighting force of 300,000 or 500,000 men for long, and it would have left us with few reserves, putting our troops at risk in other parts of the world. Given our plan, we thought we had the right number of troops to accomplish our mission.

The outcome and ramifications of a war, however, are impossible to predict. Saddam Hussein had twice opened his jails, flooding the streets with criminals. The Iraqi police walked out of their uniforms in the face of the invasion, compounding domestic chaos. We did not expect these developments.
