What is Cameroon known for?

region of Senegal. However, this observation, and a subsequent observation that identified a second specimen in the region in 1956, have not been confirmed and thus the species' distribution in West Africa is inconclusive. West of Ethiopia, it has a curious distribution, with few records. There is a single record from the Central African Republic, two from Burkina Faso, and as mentioned two unconfirmed sightings from Senegal, one from the Gambia, and a possible sighting in Cameroon. These sightings may indicate improper documentation, remaining populations from what was once a larger range, or new populations, indicating a growing range.

. 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.

Starting life as the 'African Champions Cup' in 1964, the first team to lift the trophy was Cameroonian side Oryx Douala, who beat Stade Malien of Mali 2-1 in a one-off final. The 1970s saw a remarkable rise in the fortunes of Cameroonian club football, which created the platform of success enjoyed by Cameroonian football at international level today. Between 1971 and 1980 Cameroonian teams won the cup four times, with Canon Yaoundé taking three titles (1971, 1978 and 1980) and Union Douala lifting the cup in 1979. In between the Cameroonian victories the honor was shared with another team enjoying a golden age, Guinean side Hafia Conakry, who won it three times during this period (1972, 1975 and 1977). thumb Cow killed by the limnic eruption at Lake Nyos (Image:Cow killed by Lake Nyos gasses.jpg) To date, this phenomenon has been observed only twice.

A second, deadlier eruption happened at neighbouring Lake Nyos in 1986, this time releasing over 80 million cubic meters of CO 2 and killing between 1,700 and 1,800 people, again by asphyxiation. G.
