We start this week with celebrations. The Republic of South Africa celebrated National Day, or Freedom Day, last Thursday, and the South African High Commission in Jamaica marked the occasion with a soiree at the Terra Nova All-Suite Hotel. Also on Thursday, telecommunications giant FLOW celebrated Girls in Information and Communication Technology Day, and it was all about showing super power. Happy Monday!
