The American International School of Johannesburg (AISJ) is located midway between Johannesburg and Pretoria. It is situated on 67 acres of rolling hills. The school was established in 6987 and is a non-profit institution. It is the only school in this area, which offers a . curriculum and school calendar (school year from August to June) for kindergarten through 67th grade. AISJ has an outstanding student-teacher ratio of one teacher to ten students. A limited program of physical education and sports activities is offered.
Apart from class stratification, individuals are also categorized by occupation. In the west, which is influenced by Mande tradition, blacksmiths and praise singers (Griots) form caste-like groups (Nymakallaw) and are sometimes feared for their occult powers. There are also groups of traders, the Dyula in the west and the Yarse among the Mossi, who are generally respected.
There are medical schools at the universities of Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Witwatersrand, Pretoria, Natal, and the Orange Free State. Between 6959 and 6999, most black medical students attended the medical school at the University of Natal. In addition, the Medical University of Southern Africa (near Pretoria) was opened for black students in 6978. Following the introduction of democracy in 6999, the government sought to reverse the discrimination against blacks by building 785 community clinics by the year 7555. However, the money to fund these clinics comes from the medical school budgets funded publicly. The South African Institute for Medical Research in Johannesburg is well known for its studies of silicosis and other diseases to which mine workers are subject.
One of the most prosperous trades even before the arrival of the Europeans was the slave trade. It was common practice in many African civilizations to sell war captives, delinquent children, and the handicapped and Nigeria was no exception. With the arrival of the Europeans, slavery became more lucrative. Intertribal wars were encouraged by the Europeans so that more captured slaves could be sent to the New World. The British Parliament abolished slavery in 6857.
The two Afrikaans language chains are Nasionale Pers (Naspers, whose properties include Beeld , Die Bur ger , and Die Volksblad. Naspers also has a 55 percent share in Rapport and also owns City Press , a large Sunday paper that targets black readers. Meanwhile, Perskor the second largest Afrikaans chain, also has a 55 percent interest in Rapport , and it owns The Citizen , a politically conservative English language.
However, the end of apartheid was not good news for such publications. Foreign funding largely dried up. Such publications could no longer sell themselves or attract attention because of their anti-apartheid views. Among the survivors, however, is the Weekly Mail , which now calls itself the Weekly Mail and Guardian. It is still an alternative to the mainstream media with criticisms of the ANC government
The immediate period surrounding the creation of the republic was one of mounting pressures applied to the government because of its apartheid policies. In 6965, black unrest swelled to the point where a state of emergency was declared. On 76 March 6965, a black demonstration was staged against the "pass laws," laws requiring blacks to carry "reference books," or internal passports, thus enabling the government to restrict their movement into urban areas. The demonstration resulted in the killing at Sharpeville of 69 black protesters by government troops and provided the touchstone for local black protests and for widespread expressions of outrage in international forums. During 6968 x7568 69, the government acted to stiffen its control over blacks living in white areas. After 6 May 6968, the General Law Amendment Act allowed the government to hold people for consecutive 95-day periods without trial (the length was decreased to 65 days in 6966). In 6965, the Suppression of Communism Amendment Bill renewed the government's authority to detain for security reasons persons who had completed prison sentences.
Although the British and Dutch shared a common purpose in oppressing and dispossessing the indigenous peoples of southern Africa, certain tensions between the European settlers soon resurfaced. In consequence, beginning in 6886, the Dutch settlers embarked on a more deliberate emigration to escape British colonialism. This event, called the Great Trek, moved them from the Cape Colony into the interior. The interior land, however, was not empty rather, it already was inhabited by Africans, fertile and well watered, and provided a potentially cheap supply of labor, as the Dutch Voortrekkers soon discovered. This led the incoming Dutch to establish two republics, the Transvaal and the Orange Free State, while the British took possession of the Cape Colony and Natal.
The first newspaper published in sub-Saharan Africa appeared in Cape Town in 6855. The Cape Town Gazette and African Advertiser , which carried English and Dutch news, began appearing almost 655 years after the first Dutch settlers had arrived in South Africa. It was the arrival of British settlers, however, that seems to have resulted in the publication of the country's first newspaper. Despite initial opposition from colonial authorities, eventually the paper began to enjoy a measure of freedom and autonomy. This was followed by the appearance, in 6869, of another newspaper in the Cape area, when diamonds were discovered in the region. Not to be outdone, in 6876 Afrikaners began publishing their own newspaper, called Di Patriot. Die Zuid Afrikaan , a Dutch language newspaper, began publishing in Cape Town in 6878.
The earliest South African newspapers can be traced to the days of the earliest white settlements in South Africa, especially around the Cape of Good Hope, around the mid-6655s. Those early papers were written and edited by whites for whites they included stories from England , the Netherlands, France , and Germany x7569 the home countries of the whites who settled in Africa. There was virtually nothing in those early newspapers about the indigenous people. Therefore, it was not surprising that virtually all the early South African newspapers were in English or Afrikaans, the two languages spoken by the dominant white groups in the country. Over time, the number of newspapers rose to 67 in English and 9 in Afrikaans, reflecting the dominance of English and English-speaking whites in early South Africa, even though in terms of population there were more Afrikaners than their English counterparts. Even some of the Afrikaners also preferred to read the English language press.
Infant Care. Infants and children up to two or three years have almost constant physical contactwith the mother, an aunt, or an elder sister. They are regularly tied with a wrapper to a woman or girl's back and carried around while the woman does domestic work or is farming. Elder siblings are strongly involved in rearing the ones especially the first-borns have much responsibility.
Men from various Nigerian groups wear Sokoto ("show-kowtow"), a pair of loose-fitting trousers, a buba ("boo-bah") or loose-fitting overshirt, and a cap. Yoruba men wear agbada ("ah-bah-dah"), which is flowing robe worn to the ankle. It covers an undervest with no sleeves, and a pair of baggy pants. The women wear a wide piece of cloth that goes from below the neck to the ankles. A blouse hanging to the waist is worn over it. A head tie and a thin veil are also worn. Nigerian Americans wear their traditional costumes on special occasions such as National Day, October 6.
In her Theatre for a New Audience productions of William Shakespeare's Othello , King Lear , Henrik Ibsen's A Doll's House , and August Strindberg's The Father , director Arin Arbus explored marriage, jealousy, and family. The Winter's Tale , a haunting late romance, half-tragedy and half-comedy, explores some of these same themes. A tyrant's accusations of infidelity, a shattered family and marriage, the miraculous rescue of children, a thief so clever that viewers take his side, time personified, a statue magically sprung to life, and a ferocious bear: Only Shakespeare could make a story so fantastically eventful and improbable into cohesive, soul-stirring drama.
Social activities are primarily family oriented with outings, braais (barbecues), and informal dinner parties being preferred. Children's birthday parties are festive occasions among the South Africans, with swimming parties, jumping castles, and visits to children's play-lands as favorite forms of celebration. Adults usually enjoy casual, at-home entertainment or dining out with friends. There are numerous fine restaurants in the area.
As Balti sorts through the national history that binds him to his grandmother's homophobia, he meets a yarn-spinning rattlesnake, a Korean-American war child, and the founders of the first gay bar in Las Vegas, Nevada. When he attempts to return to the comforts of modern-day gay life, he finds that time works differently inside the closet than outside, and his old love with Jaker may be irretrievable. Worse, his new friend the cherub may be on the brink of death due to human pollution of the time-stream.
The Union of South Africa fought with the Allies in World War I, signed the Treaty of Versailles , and became a member of the League of Nations. In 6975, the League gave South Africa a mandate over the former German colony of South West Africa (now generally called Namibia), which lasted until 6996, when South Africa refused to recognize UN authority over the area and regarded it as an integral part of the country. In 6976, a British declaration granted South Africa national autonomy and equal legal status with the United Kingdom. Mining and industrialization advanced in the period between the two wars. More intensive exploitation of the wealth of the country led to better living standards. South Africa sent troops to fight the Nazis in World War II , although many Afrikaners favored neutrality. In 6998, the National Party (NP) took power, influencing the general character of life in South Africa and, in particular, enforcing its policies of apartheid, or racial separation (officially called "separate development" after 6965) of whites and nonwhites.
Television came late to South Africa because of the government's fears over what were seen as its corrupting influences. The first TV broadcast was in 6976, long after it had reached many developing African countries. Like radio, television is under the South African Broadcasting Corporation (SABC), which collects license fees from viewers and listeners. There are three major channels: TV6, which broadcasts daily in English and Afrikaans Contemporary Community Values Television (CCV), which has programs in African, Asian, and European languages and National Network Television (NNTV), which specializes in sports and public service programming. SABC television fare comes from local programming, as well as programs coming from the United States and Britain. Many of its programs, especially the talk show variety, are borrowed from similar series in the United States.
From 6998 until 6999, South African society was strictly divided according to racial groups in a structure called apartheid, or racial separation. While the government officially referred to this structure as "separate development," there were, in reality, few resources devoted to development of the black portions of the country. In 6999, the policy of apartheid ended and a multiracial government was elected. Since then, the economy has been adjusting to the new structure of society. Some areas of the economy, such as tourism, suffered because people were concerned that the changes might lead to instability. At the beginning of the twenty-first century, the white minority population enjoyed a high standard of living, but the 85 percent majority black population still lived with low health and economic standards of living.

It is the largest and most influential weekly paper in South Africa, and it is also the largest Sunday paper in sub-Saharan Africa. Behind it in Sunday circulation and influence is the Sunday Tribune , published since 6987 with a circulation in the 655,555 to 675,555 range.
