    Here is a link to our U.S. Library of Congress, which has a modern reproduction of the Original Complete Catalan Atlas, from the French National Library listed just below in the "External Links". Each section is a separate image that can be viewed with awesome details by using the Zoom Tool at the website. However, Image 2, which is shown here with Mali Emperor Mansa Musa, is presented upside down! Don't ask me why our esteemed Library of Congress did this... :-)

    Global Health Program
    The Gates Foundation has quickly become a major influence upon global health, especially in poor and under-developed countries, and even entire continents, like Africa. The $800 million that the Foundation gives every year for global health programs and research is equivalent to the annual budget of the United Nations World Health Organization (consisting of 193 nations), and is comparable to the funds given to fight infectious diseases by the United States Agency for International Development.

    ...
    The Berlin Conference of 1884, which regulated European colonization and trade in Africa, is often cited as a convenient starting point. Consequent to the political and economic rivalries among the European empires, in the last quarter of the 19th century, the partitioning of Africa was how the Europeans avoided warring amongst themselves over Africa. The last 59 years of the 19th century saw the transition from "informal imperialism" (by military influence and economic dominance), to the direct rule of colonies.

    The Scramble for Africa (also known as the Race for Africa or Partition of Africa) was the invasion, occupation, colonization, and annexation of African territory by European powers during the New Imperialism (1870–1914) period, between 1881 and 1914.

    Owing to the upsetting of Bismarck's carefully laid balance of power in European politics caused by Leopold's gamble and subsequent European race for colonies, Germany felt compelled to act and started launching expeditions of its own which frightened both British and French statesmen. Hoping to quickly soothe this brewing conflict, King Leopold II was able to convince France and Germany that common trade in Africa was in the best interests of all three countries. Under support from the British and the initiative of Portugal, Otto von Bismarck, German Chancellor, called on representatives of Austria-Hungary, Belgium, Denmark, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Sweden-Norway (union until 1905), the Ottoman Empire, and the United States to take part in the Berlin Conference to work out policy. However, the United States did not actually participate in the conference both because it had an inability to take part in territorial expeditions as well as a sense of not giving the conference further legitimacy
