SUMMARY / RELATED TOPICS

Reinhard Bonnke

Reinhard Bonnke was a German-American Pentecostal evangelist, principally known for his gospel missions throughout Africa. Bonnke had been an evangelist and missionary in Africa since 1967. Reinhard Bonnke was born on 19 April 1940, in Königsberg, East Prussia, the son of an army logistics officer. With his mother and siblings, he was taken to Denmark during the evacuation of East Prussia and spent some years in a displaced persons centre, he became a born-again Christian at the age of nine after his mother spoke with him about a sin that he had committed. He sensed a call from God to serve as a missionary in Africa from the age of 10 and said that he had the experience of baptism in the Holy Spirit. After war service, his father had become a pastor. Bonnke studied at the Bible College of Wales in Swansea, where he was inspired by the director, Samuel Rees Howells. In one meeting after Howells spoke of answered prayer, Bonnke prayed, "Lord, I want to be a man of faith. I want to see your way of providing for needs."

Passing through London, he had a chance meeting with the famous preacher George Jeffreys, who encouraged the young German student. After graduation, he pastored in Germany for seven years, he began his ministry in Africa, with which he was principally identified, preaching in Lesotho in 1967. He subsequently held evangelical meetings across the continent. Bonnke died on 7 December 2019, surrounded by his family according to a statement signed by his wife. Bonnke had announced on his official Facebook page in November 2019 that he had undergone femur surgery and needed time to "learn how to walk again". Early on, Bonnke encountered poor results from his evangelistic efforts and felt frustrated at the pace of his ministry. Bonnke claims to have had a recurring dream featuring a picture of the map of Africa being spread with red and heard the voice of God crying "Africa Shall Be Saved"; this led him to adopt large-scale evangelism, rather than the traditional small scale missionary approach. He rented a stadium in Gaborone and preached with little cooperation from local churches.

Beginning with only 100 people, the stadium meetings grew. In 1974, Bonnke founded the mission organisation Christ For All Nations. Based in Johannesburg, South Africa, the headquarters were relocated to Frankfurt, Germany, in 1986; this was done to distance the organisation from South Africa's apartheid policy at the time. Today CfaN has 9 offices across 5 continents. Bonnke began his ministry holding tent meetings. According to an account published by the Christian Broadcasting Network, in 1984 he commissioned the construction of what was claimed to be the world's largest mobile structure – a tent capable of seating 34,000. According to this account, the event was subsequently attended by over 100,000 people, far greater than the 34,000 seating capacity the tents could contain. Bonnke announced his "farewell gospel crusade" to be held in Lagos, Nigeria, in November 2017. Lagos is the location of a gospel crusade held in 2000 which, according to CfaN, is the organisation's largest to-date, drawing an attendance of six million people.

In 2019 Reinhard Bonnke was set to headline the G12 Africa Conference in South Africa. In 1991, during Bonnke's visit to Kano in Nigeria, there were riots in the city as Muslims protested over remarks he had made about Islam in the city of Kaduna on his way to Kano. A rumor was spread. Muslim youths gathered at the Kofar Mata Eide-ground where they were addressed by several clerics who claimed that Bonnke was going to blaspheme Islam. About 8,000 youths gathered at the Emir's palace and after noon prayers the riots ensued, during which many Christians sustained various injuries and several churches were burned. After nine years he returned to Nigeria to preach. After graduating from the Bible College of Wales and returning to Germany, Bonnke led a series of meetings in Rendsburg, he began receiving speaking invitations from the rest of the world. Bonnke met Anni Suelze at a gospel music festival, admired the grace with which she recovered from a wrongly pitched music performance at the expense of losing the competition.

He fell in love with her. They had three children. Bonnke's autobiography, Living a Life of Fire, is a collection of stories of his life, including accounts of his childhood growing up during the Second World War and living in prison camps to his early years in ministry and how he believed God used him to bring the gospel of salvation to Africa.

Web science

Web science is an emerging interdisciplinary field concerned with the study of large-scale socio-technical systems the World Wide Web. It considers the relationship between people and technology, the ways that society and technology co-constitute one another and the impact of this co-constitution on broader society. Web Science combines research from disciplines as diverse as sociology, computer science and mathematics. An earlier definition was given by American computer scientist Ben Shneiderman: "Web Science" is processing the information available on the web in similar terms to those applied to natural environment; the Web Science Institute describes Web Science as focusing "the analytical power of researchers from disciplines as diverse as mathematics, economics, psychology and computer science to understand and explain the Web. It is interdisciplinary – as much about social and organizational behaviour as about the underpinning technology." There are numerous academic research groups engaged in Web Science research, many of which are members of WSTNet, the Web Science Trust Network of research labs.

Health Web Science emerged as a sub-discipline of Web Science that studies the role of the Web's impact human health outcomes and how to further utilize the Web to improve health outcomes.

Wang (surname)

Wang is the pinyin romanization of the common Chinese surnames 王 and 汪. Wáng was listed 8th on the famous Song Dynasty list of the Hundred Family Surnames. Wāng was 104th of the Hundred Family Surnames. Wang is a surname with unrelated origins in several European countries. 王 is romanized as Wong in Hong Kong, Cantonese and Hainanese. 汪 is romanized identically, despite its distinct tone. It is Wong in Cantonese, Ong or Ang in Hokkien, Wang in Korean, Ō or Oh in Japanese. However, in Vietnamese, it is written Uông. Wáng is one of the most common surnames in the world and was listed by the People's Republic of China's National Citizen ID Information System as the most common surname in mainland China in April 2007, with 92.88 million bearers and comprising 7.25% of the general population. It was the 6th most common surname in Taiwan in 2005, comprising 4.12% of the general population. Wāng was listed by the NCIIS survey as the 58th most common surname in mainland China and by Yang Xuxian as the 76th most common surname on Taiwan.

Ong is the 5th-most-common surname among Chinese Wong the 6th. There were 88,000 Wongs during the year 2000 US Census, making it the 7th-most-common surname among Asians and Pacific Islanders and the 279th most common surname overall; the 63,800 Wangs ranked 440th, respectively. Wang is a rare surname in South Korea; the year 2000 South Korean Census listed only 23,447 Wangs. 王 is the Chinese word for "king". William Baxter and Laurent Sagart reconstructed the Old Chinese form of Wáng as *‍ɢʷaŋ and the Middle Chinese as hjwang; the modern bearers of the name Wáng come from many different backgrounds, but the principal origins of the modern surname were four: the Zi, the Ji, the Gui, the adoption of the name from ethnic groups outside the Han Chinese. The most ancient family name of Wáng was originated from the surname Zi; the Chinese legend mentions that near the end of Shang Dynasty, King Zhou of Shang's uncle Bi Gan, Ji Zi, Wei Zi were called "The Three Kindhearted Men of Shang". King Zhou was violent in his rule, Bi Gan remonstrated to the king regarding his behavior.

The king killed Bi Gan instead. Bi's descendants used Wáng as their surname as they are descendants of a prince and were known as "The Bi clan of the Wáng family"; the Zi clan exists today. The Zi clan of Wáng lived predominantly in Henan during these times and developed into the famous Wáng family of Ji prefecture. More Wáng were originated from the royal family of Zhou Dynasty; the original surname of the royal family of Zhou Dynasty was Ji. However, many of them have separated out of the family due to the loss of land; because they once belonged to the royal family, they used Wáng as their surname. This family of Wáng traced its ancestry to Wang ZiqiaoAccording to the classical records, after King Wu of Zhou defeated the Shang Dynasty, he established the Western Zhou Dynasty. During the reign of the 21st king, King Ling of Zhou, the capital was in Chengzhou, the present day Luoyang, Henan. A son of King Ling, Wangzi Qiao or Prince Qiao, was reduced to civilian status due to his remonstration to the king.

His son Zong Jin remained as a Situ in the palace, because of the people at the time recognized him as the descendant of the royal family, they called his family the "Wáng family". During the Tang dynasty the Li family of Zhaojun 赵郡李氏, the Cui family of Boling 博陵崔氏, the Cui family of Qinghe 清河崔氏, the Lu family of Fanyang 范陽盧氏, the Zheng family of Xingyang 荥阳郑氏, the Wang family of Taiyuan 太原王氏, the Li family of Longxi 隴西李氏 were the seven noble families between whom marriage was banned by law. Moriya Mitsuo wrote a history of the Later Han-Tang period of the Taiyuan Wang. Among the strongest families was the Taiyuan Wang; the prohibition on marriage between the clans issued in 659 by the Gaozong Emperor was flouted by the seven families since a woman of the Boling Cui married a member of the Taiyuan Wang, giving birth to the poet Wang Wei. He was the son of Wang Chulian; the marriages between the families were performed clandestinely after the prohibition was implemented on the seven families by Gaozong.

The Zhou dynasty King Ling's son Prince Jin is assumed by most to be the ancestor of the Taiyuan Wang. The Longmen Wang were a cadet line of the Zhou dynasty descended Taiyuan Wang, Wang Yan and his grandson Wang Tong hailed from his cadet line. Both Buddhist monks and scholars hailed from the Wang family of Taiyuan such as the monk Tanqian; the Wang family of Taiyuan included Wang Huan. Their status as "Seven Great surnames" became known during Gaozong's rule; the Taiyuan Wang family produced Wang Jun. A Fuzhou-based section of the Taiyuan Wang produced the Buddhist monk Baizhang. 汪 means "vast" in the Chinese language, is used to describe oceans. In the modern vernacular Chinese, it is the onomatopoeia for the sound of a barking dog. Baxter and Sagart reconstructed it as *qʷˤaŋ and'wang, respectively. Unlike other Hui people who claim foreign descent, Hui in Gansu with the surname Wāng are descended from Han Chinese who converted to Islam and married Hui or Dongxiang people. A town called Tangwangchuan in Gansu had a multi-ethnic populace, the Tang and Wāng families predominating.

The Tang and Wang families were of non-Muslim Han extract
