A human rights project using satellite imagery that the general public can access is being launched to help deter a resumption of war between north and south Sudan linked to a crucial referendum in January. The Satellite Sentinel Project, which is backed by American actor George Clooney, combines satellite imagery analysis and field reports with Google’s Map Maker technology to monitor the area marking the boundary between the nation of Sudan and Southern Sudan, which is expected to become Africa’s 55th country, following the voting that begins on 9 January. The Satellite Sentinel Project will be available on December 29 at http://www.satsentinel.org.
Interestingly, in the Hebraic calendar, we are in the decade of Ayin. The word “Ayin” means – eye; to see, and by extension, to understand and obey. It also means “Divine Providence”.
