massive hit

Dave Marsh wrote that it was "the only African record by an African" to crack the top 40. At one point there were nine different versions of the song in the Billboard chart. It became "a massive hit" internationally as well. Freshwater butterflyfish are found in the slightly acidic standing bodies of water in West Africa. They require a year round temperature

successful period

. The club was formed in 1930 and play their games at Stade Ahmadou Ahidjo. Their most successful period was in the 1970s and 1980s when they were a dominant force in Cameroonian and African football, winning eight national championships (MTN Elite One), eight Cameroonian Cups, three African Champions' Cups (CAF Champions League) and one African Cup Winners' Cup. '''Tonnerre Kalara Club of Yaoundé''' are a football (soccer) club based in Yaoundé, Cameroon. The club was most prominent during the 1980s, winning all of their 5 national championship during the decade. They have also won the national cup 5 times. Among the club's most notable players have been the African player of the Century Roger Milla, Rigobert Song and the former FIFA World Player of the Year, Liberian George Weah. '''Cameroon''' competed at the '''1980 Summer Olympics''' in Moscow, USSR (Soviet Union). The nation returned to the Olympic Games after boycotting the 1976 Summer Olympics. In 1960-1961 he was a Plebiscite Supervisor in the Southern Cameroon. He joined the Middle Temple in July 1962, and practised as a libel barrister 1962-1979. Many websites make the claim that Lombard Street (Lombard Street (San Francisco)) in San Francisco, California, is the windiest street in the world ("windiest" as in "lots of twists and turns", not as in "gusty and breezy"). I see that our own article on that street doesn't make such a grand claim, stating instead that Lombard Street is the "crookedest most winding street in the United States". But is that even true? What ''is'' the crookedest street in the world? In the United States? My own vote has to go to the highway that leads south of Ebolowa, Cameroon, to the border with Gabon. Switchback after switchback, apparently so that the Cameroonian military can hide just out of sight in case the Gabonese army decides to invade. But, then, it's a ''highway'', so maybe it doesn't count. Any objective sources on this topic? — BrianSmithson (User:BrianSmithson) 20:08, 17 January 2006 (UTC) *Lombard isn't even the crookedest street in San Francisco; Vermont St. has one fewer curves, but they're all a lot sharper and steeper. No pretty flowers, though. --jpgordon (User:Jpgordon)∇∆∇∆ (User talk:Jpgordon) 21:02, 17 January 2006 (UTC) I recently saw an old Florida schoolbus drive in Maastricht (the Netherlands). You know, the ones that look like they'd tip over backwards if too many people would sit in the back (I bet lots of US schoolkids have tried this :) ). How does a bus like that end up across the ocean? I've also seen old English doubledeckers, but it's rather a shorter distance across the channel. When in the US, I thought about sending the car I had bought there home by ship, but that turned out way too expensive (can't remember the price now). So wouldn't this be very uneconomical? Or would people spend a lot of money to own an 'oddity' like this? Ironically, in Cuba I saw Dutch buses. It turns out the Netherlands donated 1500 buses to Cuba. Speak of inefficiency. Florida buses get sent to the Netherlands and Dutch buses get sent to Cuba, which is just a raft's hop away from Florida (ok, that's a sick joke :) ). DirkvdM (User:DirkvdM) 15:13, 20 January 2006 (UTC) :I don't have an answer for you, but I just wanted to add that an American schoolbus somehow ended up in Cameroon, too. It was used to transport paying customers from Yaoundé to Bertoua. It even had the retractable stop signs on the sides! Very odd indeed where these decommissioned buses end up. — BrianSmithson (User:BrianSmithson) 15:32, 20 January 2006 (UTC) AHI currently manages 26 hospitals and 67 clinics in 21 countries, including Albania, Belize, Cameroon, Curaçao, Ethiopia, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Liberia, Malawi, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Chad, Trinidad, Venezuela, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. The Calabar angwantibo lives in the rain forests of west Africa, particularly in tree-fall zones. In areas where the forest has been cleared, it has been known to live on farmland (Farmland (farming)). Its range covers Cameroon, Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea. The species takes its name from the Nigerian city of Calabar. The '''golden angwantibo''' (''Arctocebus aureus'') is a strepsirrhine primate from the family Lorisidae. It shares the ''Arctocebus'' genus with the Calabar angwantibo (''Arctocebus calabarensis'') and together they are commonly called the golden pottos. The golden angwantibo is found in Cameroon, the Republic of Congo, Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. Its usual habitat is rain forest, but it has also been known to live on farmland (Farmland (farming)). The '''false potto''' (''Pseudopotto martini'') is a lorisiform (Lorisiformes) primate of uncertain taxonomic (taxonomy) status found in Africa. Anthropologist Jeffrey H. Schwartz named it in 1996 as the only species of the genus '''''Pseudopotto''''' on the basis of two specimens (consisting only of skeletal material) that had previously been identified as pottos (''Perodicticus potto''). The precise provenances of the two specimens are uncertain, but at least one may have come from Cameroon. Schwartz thought the false potto could even represent a separate family (family (taxonomy)), but other researchers have argued that the supposed distinguishing features of the animal do not actually distinguish it from the potto; specifically, the false potto shares several features with West African pottos. Distribution and status According to records in the Anthropological Institute and Museum, AMZ 6698, the holotype, is from "Equatorial Africa", and AMZ-AS 1730 is from the "Cameroons".

. T. Mensah , easily the most popular highlife performer of the 1950s, toured Igbo-land frequently, drawing huge crowds of devoted fans. Bobby Benson & His Combo was the first Nigerian highlife band to find audiences across the country. Benson was followed by Jim Lawson & the Mayor's Dance Band, who achieved national fame in the mid-'70s, ending with Lawson's death in 1976. During the same period, other highlife performers were reaching their peak. These included Prince Nico Mbarga and his band Rocafil Jazz, whose "Sweet Mother" was a pan-African hit that sold more than 13 million copies, more than any other African single of any kind. Mbarga used English lyrics in a style that he dubbed panko, which incorporated "sophisticated rumba (African Rumba) guitar-phrasing into the highlife idiom". Graham, pgs. 596–597 Graham explains the importance of both Benson and Lawson. Referring to "Sweet Mother, Graham explains: ''(b)ut it is an infectious song and its potent appeal was concocted from Mbarga's use of pidgin English (broadening his audience enormously) and a style he called ''panko'' — for the first time incorporating sophisticated rumba guitar-phrasing into the highlife idiom.'' In 1953, the Congolese music scene began to differentiate itself with the formation of African Jazz (Grand Kalle et l'African Jazz) (led by Joseph "Grand Kalle" Kabasele (Joseph Kabasele)), the first full-time orchestra to record and perform, and the debut of fifteen-year-old guitarist François Luambo Makiadi (aka Franco). Both would go on to be some of the earliest Congolese music stars. African Jazz, which included Kabasele, sometimes called the father of modern Congolese music, as well as legendary Cameroonian saxophonist (saxophone) and keyboardist (Keyboard instrument) Manu Dibango, has become one of the most well-known groups in Africa, largely due to 1960's "Independence Cha-Cha-Cha", which celebrated Congo's independence and became an anthem for Africans across the continent. - South- (South Africa) and West Africa Angola, Benin, Cameroon, Chad, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, Lesotho, Liberia, Madagascar, Malawi, Mali, Morocco, Mozambique, Niger, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Togo, Zambia, Zimbabwe - "JD Edwards" was founded in 1977 by Thompson, Gregory, and McVaney; the company's name drawn from the initials "J" for Jack, "D" for Dan, and "Edwards" for "Ed". McVaney took a salary cut from $44,000 to $36,000 to ensure initial funding. Start-up clients included McCoy Sales, a wholesale distribution company in Denver, Colorado, and Cincinnati Milacron, a maker of machine tools. The business received a $75,000 contract to develop wholesale distribution system software and a $50,000 contract with the Colorado Highway Department to develop governmental and construction cost accounting systems. The first international client was Shell Oil Company in Cameroon, Africa. Gregory flew to Shell Oil to install the company's first international, multi-national, multi-currency client software system. * Demonstrators in non-English-speaking countries often use signs in English to convey their demands to TV audiences around the globe. In some cases, the demonstrator may not even understand what the sign he is carrying says. * Bobda shows how Cameroon has moved away from a mono-cultural, Anglo-centered way of teaching English and has gradually accommodated teaching materials to a Cameroonian context. Non-Western topics are treated, such as rule by emirs, traditional medicine, and polygamy. Bobda (1997), p. 225. Bobda argues for bi-cultural, Cameroonian and Anglo-American education. Bobda (1997), p. 234. * Kramsch and Sullivan describe how Western methodology and textbooks have been appropriated to suit local Vietnamese culture. Kramsch and Sullivan (1996). '''Marc-Vivien Foé''' (1 May 1975 – 26 June 2003) was a Cameroonian international footballer (Association football), who played in midfield (midfielder) for both club and country. With success in the French League (Ligue 1), and stints in the English Premier League (Premier League), his sudden death, while in the middle of an international competitive fixture, came as a shock to the worldwide footballing community.

personal approach

artists from Cameroon are Les Nubians and Bams -- female vocalists with a very personal approach to the genre who now reside in France. In Cameroon, a red "X" placed on illegally constructed buildings scheduled for demolition is occasionally referred to as a "St Andrew's Cross". It is usually accompanied by the letters "A.D." ("à détruire" - French for "to be demolished") and a date or deadline. During a campaign of urban renewal by the Yaoundé Urban Council in Cameroon, the cross was popularly referred to as "Tsimi's Cross" after the Government Delegate to Yaoundé Urban Council Gilbert Tsimi Evouna.
