I do thank Pradeep of Athi River Mining for the Invitation yesterday.
Thanks Pradeep. Always appreciated.

Macro Thoughts

And I am still keenly peering through my Lefevre P.10

Another Lesson I learned early is that there is nothing new in Wall
Street. There can't be because Speculation is as old as the Hills.
Whatever happens in the Stock Market today has happened before and
will happen again. I'd never forgotten that. I suppose I really manage
to remember when and how it happened. The Fact that I remember that
way is my way of capitalising Experience.

Home Thoughts

I did mention My Fortnum and Masons Hamper [I knew the Westons very
well once upon a time] and how I rediscovered lots of long lost Books.

I just read Naguib Mahfouz's Dweller in Truth which is about Akhenaten
http://bit.ly/c00bDW

"Dweller in Truth". Adopting the narrative method of multiple
narrators, the novelist approaches a well-known enigma, the identity
of Akhenaten, the author of beautiful hymns to the sun and the
predecessor of Tutankhamun. King Amenophis IV, who ruled between about
1375 and 1358 BC, abandoned the dynastic cult of Amun and other gods
in Thebes and left the capital, aiming to build a new one in the place
now known as Tell El-Amarna. He devoted all his worship to the solar
disc of Aten, the sun god, represented by rays that terminate in hands
holding the signs of ankh, "the force of life". In a similar fashion,
the famous Egyptian obelisks are holy representations of sunrays.

Its beautifully and very sparely written.

I have been getting up rather early of late. This Morning I switched
on the Light and the little One [who must be Obeyed - Rumpole of the
Old Bailey referring to his Wife] shrieked and I sort of think I am
hearing my Mother and Grandmother from another Place. So I turned to
Hannah and said

Ok Darling I am going to go Work in my Boxer shorts. And if anyone
wants an Interview I am going to do it in my Boxer shorts.

She starts Chuckling and says Even Aljazeero I said Even Aljazeero.

Finally I was able to get my Kit on.

But Lula had barely 24 hours to savour the success before Hillary
Clinton took all the wind out of his sails. With a rhetorical pat on

Dmitry Medvedev has decided to trade in his Mercedes and bring back the ZiL The Guardian
Law & Politics

They were the ultimate symbols of Soviet power, used to whiz politburo
members through snowy Moscow streets to the forbidding walls of the
Kremlin. The ZiL limousine was the favoured mode of transport for a
succession of leaders. Khrushchev, Brezhnev and Gorbachev all had one.
After communism collapsed, however, Boris Yeltsin got himself a

Currency Markets At A Glance
World Currencies

Euro 1.2354 - I said in my Podcast that the Short Covering Rallies
could become Violent.
Pound 1.4407
Dollar Index 86.44
Aussie 0.8425
Real 1.8269
Rand 7.79 [looking for 7.92 8.00 then 8.10]

The euro rebounded strongly from four-year lows Wednesday as currency
markets bet that European authorities would respond to the common
currency's recent rapid decline.
Conjecture in the market that the European Central Bank could take
steps to try to arrest the euro's drop--which might have been too
rapid--helped boost the currency more than 1.5% against the dollar on
the day.

The ECB and Federal Reserve declined to comment, but the speculation
in and of itself was sufficient to spark a pause in the euro's fall.

"The threat of possible central bank intervention is really forcing
some traders to really lighten up on their heavy bets against the
euro," said Joe Manimbo, market analyst at Travelex Global Business
Payments in Washington. "How long that lasts, we'll see, because the
euro is widely expected to have a tough time sustaining any bounce
given worries about the euro zone," which struggles with a stifling
crisis of sovereign debt.

Conclusions

I still look for a move to 1.1760 and if the ECB wants to give
everyone a chance to sell it higher up, then so be it.

Why We Get Naked A therapist explains protests and strip poker New Yorker In the Buff
Misc.

Nudity is our most basic state, yet there are few things that cause
the same extreme mixture of titillation and horror. Still, if one
looks closely, it’s everywhere. Mass nude weddings with as many as
sixty couples take place every year at the Hedonism resort in Jamaica.
There’s nude sky diving and nude boxing (so-called “bouncy boxing”) in
Australia, nude skiers in Austria (brr), nude synchronized swimming in
Spain, strip poker, naked flights (no hot drinks are served, to
prevent scalding), organized nudism, anarchic streaking, Janet Jackson
at the Super Bowl. Why does donning the birthday suit get us in such a
tizzy? I recently wrote to Philip Carr-Gomm, a psychotherapist,
writer, and author of “A Brief History of Nakedness,” to ask his
opinion.

Why nakedness?

I finish this part of the book with a quotation from Dolly Parton
which nicely unites Pantheistic and Christian themes: “Sometimes I
like to run naked in the moonlight and the wind, on a little trail
behind our house, when the honeysuckle blooms. It's a feeling of
freedom, so close to God and nature.”

S. Africa May Exceed 2.6% Growth Forecast, IMF Says Bloomberg
World Of Finance

South Africa’s economic growth this year may exceed the 2.6 percent
estimated by the International Monetary Fund in April, said Abebe
Selassie, the head of regional studies at the IMF’s African
department.The IMF may raise its forecast by a quarter of a percentage
point to “closer to 3 percent,” Selassie said in a presentation in
Johannesburg today. The lender will revise its estimate as a result of
a recent visit to South Africa by an IMF team, he said.

South Africa, Africa’s biggest economy, is recovering from a 1.8
percent contraction in 2009 as manufacturing exports rebound and gold
and platinum prices increase. The IMF’s comments today echo those of
Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan on May 11 that the economy may expand
more than the 2.3 percent he forecast in February.

Retail sales rose for the first time in 14 months in March, expanding
an annual 1 percent, the statistics office said today, while
manufacturing increased an annual 6.3 percent in the same month, the
fastest pace in almost two years

The government’s plan to bring down the budget deficit to 5 percent in
the year through March 2012 from 6.2 percent this year is “achievable”
and its spending and revenue plans “will be supportive of the
recovery,” Selassie said.

The IMF estimated that Sub-Saharan economic growth will reach 4.7
percent this year, double the pace of 2009, as commodity prices
increased and governments raised spending to help offset the impact of
the global crisis.

“This was the biggest test the region has faced for many years and
it’s coming out of the crisis well,” Selassie said. “Top marks for the
region.”

Africa’s trade with emerging markets, such as China and India, has
also increased in recent years, helping to offset sluggish growth in
Europe, Coorey said. Sub-Saharan exports to emerging and other
developing economies accounted for 35 percent of total exports in
2009, compared with 20 percent in 2004 and less than 10 percent in
1990, according to IMF data.

Kenyan Athi River Mining's note 60 pct oversubscribed Reuters
Kenyan Bills & Bonds - Short Term

Kenya's third largest cement firm Athi River Mining's 5-year
equity-linked bond for 1.2 billion shillings was oversubscribed by
more than half, the transaction team said, marking the successful sale
of the country's first equity-linked bond.The company had opted for a
greenshoe option of a further 400 million shillings in the event of
excess demand. Investors for the issue, which was sold through a
private placement, offered 1.9 billion shillings.

An equity-linked note offers investors higher returns in the event the
firm's shares perform well. Athi River's note offered a 12 percent
coupon with a rise in the share price of the company envisaged to
raise the yield to a total of 16 percent.

Macharia also attributed the success of the issue to a favourable
outlook for the cement industry on the back of a boom in construction
in the region. The market was also awash with liquidity, he said.

"There is too much money chasing very few projects," he said, adding
other firms would be encouraged by the results of the Athi River bond
to raise funds through innovative instruments like the equity-linked
note, which is the first of its kind in Kenya.

Funds raised will be used to complete a $100 million cement plant in
Tanga, Tanzania, due for completion in early 2011.

Surendra Bhatia, Athi River's deputy managing director, said the firm
would raise its total production capacity in Kenya and Tanzania to 2.2
million tonnes per year once all expansion projects in the region are
completed.

"Cement demand in east Africa has grown by, on average, double digits,
which is very positive, during this year. I would expect the trend to
maintain itself," he said.

Athi River has other business divisions producing fertiliser,
chemicals and industrial minerals. Cement, whose consumption is
sometimes used as a measure of economic activity in Africa where there
is scarce economic data, accounts for more than half of its business.

Conclusions

That was a Note worth Buying.

Rea Vipingo banks on forex rates to improve earnings Business Daily
N.S.E Equities - Agricultural

Sisal firm, Rea Vipingo, is banking on firm prices of fibre and
favourable forex rates to help shore-up its earnings even as it warned
that its full-year profit for 2010 is likely to drop by more than a
quarter.The company said a prolonged drought experienced throughout
East Africa last year hurt sisal fibre production, leading to lower
than expected earnings in the current financial year.

“Sisal fibre prices have firmed recently and assuming foreign exchange
rates remain relatively favourable, and volumes continue to improve as
expected, it is anticipated that the group will produce strong results
for the remainder of the financial year.”

With an annual sisal fibre production of over 16,000 tonnes, the
company is currently the largest sisal producer in Africa.

Kenyan police recover arms cache off coast Reuters
Law & Politics

Kenyan police have recovered a cache of firearms found in the sea by
an octopus fisherman and suspect it could belong to a group of pirates
arrested in the nearby coastal town of Malindi.They recovered four
rockets, one ceska pistol, a rocket launcher, 18 magazines, five AK-47
rifles, eight rounds of ammunition for ceska pistols and a total of
436 rounds of ammunition measuring 7.62mm.

Six men thought to be of Somali origin were arrested in a boat off
Malindi, on May 10 and were charged with being in Kenya illegally. The
captain of the boat was also charged with possessing a firearm
illegally.Security officers were alerted to the weapons by a fisherman
who discovered them more than 2 km from the shoreline in Malindi, a
popular tourist town north of the port city of Mombasa.

"I was in the deep sea as usual looking for octopus when I noticed a
buoy floating. I got curious because that was a sign of something
underneath. I dived into the water only to come face to face with all
manner of weaponry," fisherman Jackson Kahindi Karisa told Reuters.

"I panicked because I did not understand why somebody had left them
there and whether somebody was watching me. I sailed back to shore and
notified the police."

Mombasa has suffered two attacks: a hotel bombing and a botched
missile attack on an Israeli airliner leaving Kenya's Mombasa airport
in 2002.

Kenya hotelier TPS in $15 mln cash call for growth KBC
N.S.E Equities - Commercial & Services

Kenya's TPS Eastern Africa, operator of Serena chain of hotels plans a
rights issue to raise more than 1.2 billion shillings ($15.25 million)
for expansion, the firm said on Thursday.

"We have ambitious plans for the future growth of Serena Hotels,
buoyed by our strong trading record and increasing optimism in the
tourism sector in East Africa," Mahmud Jan Mohamed, the company's
chief executive said in a statement.

"We are planning to use proceeds of the Rights Issue to expand
capacity and to upgrade our existing portfolio of properties in order
to meet increased demand at the top end of the market."The issue of
24.7 million new shares to be offered at a rate of one for every five
held is subject to approval by the company's shareholders at its
annual meeting next week.Tourism, which was Kenya's third largest
source of hard currency last year after horticulture and tea, is
expected to rebound this year in line with the recovery of the global
economy across east Africa where the firm has operations.Kenya is also
hoping to shake off memories of the bloody post-election crisis in
2008 and is stepping up marketing of the destination through
advertising on international television channels.

The capitalisation of Jaja Limited, a special purpose vehicle for the
development of tourist properties in Kenya, acquiring existing
properties in Tanzania and refurbishment of its hotel in Rwanda are
some of the areas in which Serena plans to put the money.

The cash call will complement other fundraising activities by the
group like long-term borrowing.

Male antelopes deceive females in mating games Telegraph
Africa

Scientists studying topi bucks observed them snorting and looking
intently ahead when an available female began to stray from their
territory.The behaviour suggests there is a dangerous predator ahead,
such as a lion or cheetah. But the male topi's signals were false ones
designed to fool the female into staying close by.Keeping the
frightened female secure in his territory increases the male's chances
of mating.Deliberate deception of a sexual partner has not been
documented before in animals.
