CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Jordan Knight, Dennis Hopper, Sugar Ray Leonard, Bob Saget, Maureen O’Sullivan, Andrea Corr.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): The concentration of earth energy could work very well for you. Intense and focused aspects may push one specific issue to the exclusion of all others. A moment of inspiration could kick- start something back into life again, although you may need to wait for further results!

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Thanks to a string of pushy aspects and a little extra dash of persistence, it’s likely to be a productive day, with various improvements paving the way forward on several fronts. That said; it may be a day to clear your proverbial in-tray, since the entire week ahead may be a little time-pressured!

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A strong Saturn/Pluto mix may well bring out a competitive side not really associated with graceful and gentle air-signs. It may be a day to draw back a little. Just remember that communication is a two-way process. Something you hear may depend on something you share first!

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Lunar influences suggest that you may end up following the wrong course of action, but for the best of reasons. You might even be inclined to offer someone or something a second chance. However, if this doesn’t pan out the way you had hoped, then you may have to leave it for now!

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): A rigorous vibe points to a fairly constructive day, but the moon in chilly Virgo needs to be borne in mind. If there is a glitch to address, most likely related to a practical dilemma, then it should be regarded exactly as it is: as a one-off. Don’t allow it to grow out of proportion!

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): It’s possible that quite a few people will be looking to you for solutions and answers. The more simple and/or obvious those answers are, the more you are still likely to find your patience levels dropping down quickly. You’ll almost definitely need some uninterrupted space for you!

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): While the general vibe is likely to be a hard-working one, you may find that you’re tempted to coast a little. However, it’s certainly not a day to sweet-talk your way out of doing your fair share. In addition, it’s also the sort of day where someone is highly likely to call your bluff!

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It’s a day where someone may attempt to exert a little control over one aspect of your life. It’s possible that this person will have no formal authority. You may be (rightly) tempted to challenge this. That said; choose your words carefully. Just in case – don’t burn any bridges in a moment of irritation!

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Cash matters look solid, but you might want to consider holding onto any surplus until after Wednesday. You may need to be a little strict with yourself, though, since the entire week is likely to host a very divided vibe, which could see you making some very poor choices in cash terms!

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Strong aspects will enable a useful degree of perception. It may be necessary to put to one side those things that you can’t yet do. That said; don’t dismiss too many objectives, since there will be some things that are ripe for change. The restrictions may be more about timing than actual skill-sets!

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You may well indulge in a very minor act of rebellion against all the focused influences, but you’ll need to be careful how you counteract the industrious vibe. It’s certainly not a day to throw out the rule-book; it’s a more a day to make a few subtle tweaks here and there!

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): There’s a definite push from the planets, but it is likely to be a temporary one. A new beginning could be linked to a past matter. Something that was bothering you can be finally concluded. That said; it’s best not to aim for too much too soon: let things develop in their own time!

FOR THOSE OF US BORN ON THIS DAY: Happy Birthday! The months ahead are likely to start on a bit of a high as you push yourself, and others, in an effort to forge ahead at school or work. Money is likely to dominate your thoughts through the first part of June, particularly since you’ll tend towards an extravagance that you can’t really afford! The summer looks busy, and singles could meet someone new around this time! Although this romance will fizzle out pretty quickly, there is a good chance of a more fulfilling romance later in the year! It’s possible that there will be a work or school based prize or reward on offer; if you really want to win (and you will) then don’t take the most obvious route: think outside the box!

CELEBRITY GOSSIP: Megan Fox is soon going to be giving birth, but while she is undoubtedly focused on the role of mother ahead, she is also still very keen to keep her eye on any roles of an acting nature that may be coming her way. The planets suggest that the second half of the year could be very busy for Megan!

Facebook partners with Vodacom and others to triple Africa’s internet connectivity

Facebook joined forces with several partners to build 2Africa, largest subsea project in the world. It connects 23 countries in Africa, the Middle East and Europe.

Facebook partners with Vodacom and others to triple Africa’s internet connectivity

Tech giant Facebook partnered with Vodacom, China Mobile International, MTN GlobalConnect, Orange, STC-SA, Telecom Egypt, and WIOCC to build Africa’s most comprehensive subsea cable.

Najam Ahmad, Vice President of Network Infrastructure at Facebook, explained that his team is excited to be collaborating on the project and that it’s a major element of their ongoing investment in Africa. Ahmad explains:

“We’ve seen first-hand the positive impact that increased connectivity has on communities, from education to healthcare. We know that economies flourish when there is widely accessible internet for businesses. 2Africa is a key pillar supporting this tremendous internet expansion as part of Africa’s surging digital economy”.

According to Ahmad, they have “doubled the maximum eight fibre pairs supported by older technology for significantly more resource-efficient fibre optic cable by implementing Spatial Division Multiplexing (SDM1) technology”.

SDM1 is the latest innovative technology currently available for submarine cables. With up to 16 fibre pairs, 2Africa will allow for far greater capacity.

2Africa: Here’s what you need to know

One of the largest subsea cable projects

The cable spans approximately 37 000 km and connects Africa with Europe via Egypt, and with the Middle East via Saudi Arabia. The project has 21 landings in 16 African countries.

The project will deliver much-needed internet capacity and reliability across large parts of Africa and will supplement the fast-growing capacity demand in the Middle East.

In addition, it will boost the growth of 4G, 5G and fixed broadband access for hundreds of millions of people. According to Vodacom, improving connectivity will lay “the groundwork for increased digitalisation” on the continent.

“2Africa will give local businesses and consumers a better online experience while more connectivity between Africa, Europe and the Middle East will help to build a wider, more inclusive digital society across the globe. We’re delighted to work with our partners in the project to help deliver this.”

Vinod Kumar, CEO Vodafone Business

When will the project go live?

The undersea cable system is expected to go live in 2023 or 2024, at which time it will be able to deliver “more than the total combined capacity of all subsea cables serving Africa” at the moment.

The 2Africa project began in November 2018 when the investor partners of 2Africa initiated the cable project with the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU).

“We are honoured by the trust of our partners and proud to have been selected for this project. With this state-of-the-art subsea system, Africa will take a giant leap to the digital age thanks to the best-in-class technologies. Africa is a long story for ASN: we have deployed the majority of submarine cables around the continent. 2Africa will be a great new chapter!”

Alain Biston, President of Alcatel Submarine Networks

In May 2019, the 2Africa tender process was concluded and the appointed Alcatel Submarine Networks (ASN) to “build the cable in a fully funded project which will greatly enhance connectivity across Africa and the Middle East”.

A year later, the 2Africa partners announced the launch of the cable system.
