希望の予防接種

 Cache   

A new malaria vaccine named RTS,S or Mosquirix, is now being rolled out in three African countries. It targets Plasmodium falciparum, the most common and most lethal of four malaria parasite species, and is badly needed. But Mosquirix's efficacy and durability are mediocre, and some experts question whether it is worth the cost and effort. There are also concerns about its safety; in the largest trial, children who received Mosquirix had a risk of meningitis 10 times higher than those who received a control vaccine. It's unclear whether the vaccine is responsible, but the possible risk worried the global health community so much that the World Health Organization in 2015 decided to first set up a pilot in Malawi, Ghana, and Kenya in which the vaccine will be given to hundreds of thousands of children, to ensure the vaccine is safe and effective in the real world.


          

Patriot’s Day at Frank P. Long

 Cache   
As part of the Frank P. Long Intermediate School’s Patriot Day Activities the students in Mr. McGovern’s 4th grade class read 14 Cows for America by Carmen Agra Deedy. This picture book tells the story of a remote Kenyan village helping the United States in the aftermath of the September 11th attacks in a way that was most precious to them, by sending their cows as an act of kindness. After reading the story, the students brainstormed acts of kindness they could perform to honor the victims and people who helped out on September 11th. The class decided to thank and honor their local heroes who help make their community a better and safer place to live. Letters of appreciation and home baked goodies were hand delivered by the boys and girls to the South Country Ambulance, Hagerman Fire Department, Bellport Fire Department, Brookhaven Fire Department, Suffolk County Police Department - Fifth Precinct, and the Brookhaven Memorial Hospital Medical Center.

Hirdetések - 2019. december 1.

 Cache   

Hirdetés: ADVENT I. VASARNAPJA (december 1.)

Liturgikus rend:

Hétfő - Péntek: reggel 6 óra: Roráté
Szombat - reggel 6 óra: Roráté, - délután 18 óra: Előesti szentmise
Vasárnap délelőtt 11.15 és 19.30 óra: Szentmise, Advent 2. vasárnapja

Adventi koszorkészítés a plébánián: Köszönöm a részvételt a pénteki adventi koszorúkészítésen, és köszönöm Jakab Zsuzsa hitoktató, és a segítők áldozatos munkáját.

Képviselőtestületi ülés:December 3-án, kedd este 18 órától képviselőtestületi ülést tartunk a plébánián.

Szentségimádás papi hivatásokért: csütörtök reggel a rorátét követően.

Bibliaóra: lesz csütörtökön este 19 órától a plébánián.

Szemlélődő imádságra: hívjuk a testvéreket jövő hét vasárnap este 1730-tól a plébániára.

Roráté misék utáni reggelik: Holnaptól elkezdődnek templomunkban a Roráté szentmisék reggel 6 órakor. A szentmiséket követően a hagyományoknak megfelelően közös reggeli elfogyasztására van lehetőség a plébánián, amelyre mindenkit szeretettel hívunk és várunk. A reggelihez az eszközöket és az alap élelmiszereket a plébánia előkészíti, szeretettel fogadunk azonban olyan élelmiszer felajánlásokat, amit a kenyérre rákenhetünk, rátehetünk. Valamint, szeretettel várjuk a reggelikhez önkéntes szolgálattevők jelentkezését, (kivétel szerda, mert azt az egyetemisták vállalták)

Adventi naptár: Az idén is készül adventi naptár templomunkba. Minden adventi hajnalon nyitunk egy ablakot, amely kis üzenetet rejt magában minden jelenlévőnek. Ezek segítségével is szeretnénk elősegíteni és ösztönözni készületünket a Karácsony ünnepére.

Hétfőn este 19 órakor Szólj Be a Papnak! est a Nagyerdei Viztoronyban. A téma a Biblia hitelessége, tények és álhírek Isten Fia körül. Érdemes bekapcsolódni, ezúttal Dr. Krakomperger Zoltán atyától is lehet majd kérdezni. Az ott meg nem válaszolt kérdésekre Törő András atya a decemberi vasárnap esti fél 8-as adventi szentmisék keretében válaszol. (december 8-án, 15-én és 22-én)

NEK-Program: következő eseménye 2019. december 7-én, szombaton 1630-tól kerül megrendezésre templomunkban, és a Chemin Neuf Közösség mutatkozik majd be. Az ökumenikus elhivatottságú katolikus közösség olyan házaspárokból, családokból, szerzetes férfiakból és nőkből áll, akik úgy döntöttek, hogy a szegény és alázatos Krisztust követve a közösségi élet kalandját választják, hogy szolgálják az Egyházat és a világot. A programra kimondottan hívjuk a családokat, házaspárokat, hogy tovább gazdagodjanak az életközösségről tett tanúság üzenetével és megtapasztalásával.

Adventi mézeskalács vásár: Az előző évekhez hasonlóan 2019. december 15-én advent 3. vasárnapján a délelőtti szentmise után Adventi mézeskalács vásárt szervezünk. Kérem a Testvéreket, a családokat, hogy süssenek mézeskalácsot és hozzák be a plébániára, 2019. december 13-ig. A vásár bevételébôl karácsonyi csomagokat készítünk, amelyeket karácsonyi müsor keretében adunk át a Kenézy Kórház rehabilitációs osztályán fekvő betegeknek.

Egyházi hozzájárulás: Szeretettel felhívjuk a kedves testvérek figyelmét, hogy rövidesen itt az évvége. Kérjük, hogy akik még nem rendezték az egyházi hozzájárulásukat erre az évre, azok legyenek szívesek befizetni azt a plébánián. Érezzük annyira a magunkénak templomunkat, egyházközségünket, hogy nem feledkezünk meg ebbéli kötelességeinkről sem.

Karácsonyi miserend: A kinti és benti hirdetőn egyaránt elhelyeztük az adventi és karácsonyi miserendet. Kisérjük figyelemmel. Tájékoztassuk az érdeklődőket!

Tips Untuk Ke Pulau ( Island Hopping )


Assalamualaikum korang! hai, marilah kita habiskan entry Sabah ni, lama sangat peram, nak nak cuti sekolah ni kan, mana tahu ada yang nak buat rujukan entry ni, so letsss!!! Siapa yang belum baca previous entry, boleh KLIK




Hari ke 3 kami memilih untuk Island Hopping, tak sah kalau tak Island Hopping di Sabah, nak nak kami anak beranak memang sangat sukakan pulau, so ini adalah acara WAJIB untuk kami. Pagi ni kami tak keluar awal sangat, jam 9am baru keluar dari homestay, bagi anak tidur lama sikit, sebab nanti nak Island Hopping penat pula, dari hoemstay nak ke Jesselton Jetty tak jauh pun.

Ramai yang tanya aku Pakej ke pulau yang aku ambil ni berapa, aku tak pasti sebab semua Pakej ni diuruskan oleh AFS Car Rental and Tour. Aku amik pakej 2 pulau, sebab kalau nakkan kepuasan Snorkeling, korang tak perlu ambil banyak pulau, 2 pulau dah cukup.

Aku memilih untuk pergi ke Pulau Mamuntik dan Pulau Sapi.

Kenapa aku pilih Pulau Mamuntik, Pulau Mamuntik ni kecil je, tak ramai sangat pelancong, air dia jernih sangat dan cetek, so sesuai untuk anak anak aku. Pulau Sapi pulak ramai pelancong, tapi ikan dia cantik cantik, so balance lah aku pergi 2 pulau ni.

Pulau Mamuntik
Ni pemandangan biasa korang nampak jika nak pergi ke Pulau, Jesselton Jetty, harga barang standart, tak mahal sangat. Tu laki aku nak cari selipar, dia tak bawa selipar, hihi. Aku pulak beli topi besar tu rm9, anak anak beli sodok pasir, tiap kali pergi pulau, tiap kali tu lah membeli. LOL.

Ni aku nak share TIPS Jika Pergi ke Palau :


1. PAKAI SUNBLOCK - Sebab sangat panas

2. Pakai pakaian yang selesa, bawa topi dan spek hitam.

3. Simpan tiket

4. Jangan lupa beli casing waterproof untuk handphone

5. Ambil pakej 2 pulau saja kalau nak puas

6. BELI MAKANAN DAN AIR SIAP SIAP DI JETTY

Sampai je di jetty, kami breakfast dulu, kami makan nasi terus sebab risau lapar, main air ni confirm lapar, so suruh anak anak pun makan nasi, dah kenyang, lega rasa hati. Dah makan, TAPAU ( bungkus ) pula nasi dan lauk. Air mineral jangan lupa beli, sebab di pulau SANGAT MAHAL. kecuali kalau korang memang tak kisah. hihi.

Laki aku tapau nasi dan lauk, paling mudah, nasi + kari ayam + ikan goreng, tu paling mudah. Di kedai-kedai, dorang pun dah tahu, dorang akan bagi kita tapau nasi siap siap dalam bekas, senang kita nak bawa naik boat, tak payah malu, semua orang pun memang tapau nasi. hehe.

Makan sini tak mahal pun, harga standart je.

Masa untuk naik boat, setiap sorang akan ada life jacket sendiri, wajib pakai ok!

Family portrait first! hehe, aku pakai dress? yas pakai dress, sbb nak ootd, sampai pulau, aku salin! kahhh, gigih? yasss gigih! LOL. 

Sunblok - checked
Topi - checked
Spek - checked
LOL

1st destination kita PULAU MAMUNTIK

Serious TALK! Subhanallah! Subhanallah! Subhanallah! Cantik sangat Pulau mamuntik, memang betul lah pulau ni kecil, tapi airnya Ya Allah, JERNIH, Biruuuuu kebiru biruan, hijau hijau jernih, even ikan bilis pun boleh nampak, bayangkan! cantik sangat, memang sangat teruja dan seronok sangat!

Kami sampai je ada pasangan dari Korea photoshoot kat sini, ramai juga orang Korea, pelik juga, mcm mana eh boleh ramai orang korea, rupanya skrg dari Korea, mereka ada direct flight ke Sabah, so mmg ramai skrg org Korea di Sabah.

Selalu tengok cite Korea kat TV, bila dengar live depan depan dorg cakap, alahai, teruja kejap, cara dorg cakap dengan anak-anak dorg lembut je, takde memetir-metir. LOL.

Muka teruja tak sabar nak mandi!

jernih sampai Ikan Bilis pun nampak! Cantik sangat!

Selamat datang ke Pulau Manuntik, yay! Tak sabar nak Snorkel! macam aku pesan kat atas, tak payah beli air kat sini, air kepala rm15, HAHAHA. minum jelah air mineral ya!

Dekat sini, aku tak perlu edit gambar, CANTIK GILA! no need filter at all! serius, memang air tu biru, jernih! Cantik sangat!

Habis posing, yasss moh salin baju, kita snorkel pulak! hehehe. 

Aku kan, amaze sangat dengan kakak tau, kakak tu dia sangat suka binatang, sangat suka pulau, kakak tu aku tak hantar tau dia ke kelas swimming, tapi dia pandai swim. Pakai Life jacket lah tapi, aku masih x berani nak lepaskan dia tanpa jacket, and u know what, ini kali pertama dia snorkel, and guess what! DIA PANDAI!!!!

papa dia ajar skali je, cara bernafas, cara berenang. lepas tu trus pandai sendiri, Allahu, memang aku rasa kakak ni fast learner kalau bab bab ni. Dia tak takut!

PAKEJ ISLAND HOPPING yang AFS Car rental and Tour settlekan untuk kami ni, memang all in dah harga ke pulau, snorkle, life jacket semua, senang, aku tak payah fikir dah. kami diberi masa sampai 1pm di Pulau mamuntik. Then kami naik boat ke Pulau Sapi pula.

So ada lah dalam 3jam kami kat Pulau Mamuntik.

Alfi??? Jangan tanya, penakut, ko tengok dia, dah macam Koala dalam air, melekat dengan papa! HAHAHAHA. maybe Alfi kecik lagi, so takut, nak tengok ikan, tp takut. HAHAHA. Kakak pulak nampak ikan, menjerit jerit, aku cuak ingat nak lemas ke apa, rupanya nampak ikan! HAHAHA lawak doh!

Ni aku gilir gilir dengan laki aku, dia pergi snorkle dulu, aku jaga alfi, then dia jaga alfi, aku snorkle. hehe. gitu lah sementara nak tunggu Alfi besar, kena hantar Alfi g kelas renang ni.

Jam 1pm, boat sampai nak ambil kami ke pulau Sapi pulak. selamat tinggal pulau manuntik. tak tau lah bila nak sampai lagi, and we will miss u! sebab lepas ni kami nak g Semporna pulak. Dorang kata sana lagi best! wuuhuuuuuu. InsyaAllah kalau g Semporna pun nak pergi dengan AFS Car Rental and Tour juga.

Pulau SAPI! cantik!!!! Tapi tak sentanding Mamuntik, tapi yang win kat sini, IKAN DIA, IKAN DIA LAGI CANTIK!!!! sini ramai orang, aktiviti pun banyak. korang boleh diving kat sini. orang putih separuh bogel pun ramai, LOL! So pandai pandai lah ko nak explain kat anak ko kenapa dia pakai cm tu. HAHA. its hard! lol

Signature pose papa! haha

hey badak mana ni! pakai hitam pun nampak gemok. LOL!

awan yang sangat cantik!


Santai nampak kakak! HAHA. Dah jom balik, kul 3pm kami gerak dr Pulau Sapi, sebab langit dah gelap, risau hujan, nanti terkandas kat Pulau.

Oh lupa aku nak cerita pasal toilet, jika korang pergi time aku pergi ni, BUKAN CUTI SEKOLAH, orang tak crowded sangat tau, dan toilet bersih, dua dua pulau yang aku pergi, dua dua toilet dia ok ok je, tak de lah OK SANGAT, tapi ok lah. Tak menggelikan.

Cumanya di Pulau Sapi, tempat salin baju dia OPEN, HAHA. Jangan terkejut jika nampak pelancong B**G*L waktu salin baju, hahaha. Macam aku, lepas bersihkan pasir kt baju, aku salin dalam tandas, terpaksa, takkan aku pun nak jd cam pelancong tu kan. lol.

Tapi ok je, kami survive, cuma kakak lah, terbuntang mata tengok, sbb tak biasa kan. HAHA. but overall ok je. Salin baju, naik boat, balik Jesselton jetty, AFS Car Rental and Tour dan tunggu kami.

Sampai rumah, kami rehat rehat, malam ni kami decide nak jalan sendiri, aku nak ke Cafe Kucing kawan blogger, PURRFECT Place cafe. Cafe ni adalah Cafe Wajib Singgah Di KK. Wajib pergi jika pencinta kucing ok! So AFS Car Rental And Tour tinggalkan kereta utk kami jalan sendiri mlm tu.

Rasa terharu sgt bila Sya pm kat Fb jemput kita dtg cafe dia, aku pun tak tahu ada kwn di Sabah, LOL. aku pernah tgk cafe ni masuk TV1 dulu, tapi tak perasan Sya yang punya. Nampak sangat tak beramah mesra dengan kwn kwn di FB, hehe. TQ sya sebab jemput kami, belanja kami kek dan minum di Cafe! sedap sangat kek awak!

Korang boleh usha IG dia, Purrfect Place

Si kakak, jangan tanya lah! seronok sangat dpt main cat, dorg dah charge kat rumah dulu, so sampai sini, aktiflah masing masing. hehe.

Sebelum masuk dalam tempat kucing ni, korang kena pakai sanitizer, sini memang bersih, tak bau hama kucing, kucing gemok! bersih sgt. TERBAIK weh!

Korang datang sini tau nanti! Jangan lupa!

Kalau korang nak tahu pakej pasal Island Hopping tu, boleh try contact :


TQ AFS CAR RENTAL AND TOUR SDN BHD for great service, sangat recommended!

PEMA Skincare ~ Lightening Series [ Review ]

 Cache   
Hallo semuanya!
Akhirnya aku bisa kasih review skincare baru lagi setelah lama tidak icip-icip skincare baru. Hehe
Kali ini aku ingin mereview salah satu brand skincare lokal baru di Indonesia, yaitu Pema Skincare. PEMA Skincare merupakan rangkaian perawatan kulit yang terbuat dari bahan alami dan diformulasikan khusus untuk perempuan Indonesia. Produk-produk Pema skincare 100% terbuat di Indonesia sehingga akan lebih masuk dan cocok untuk jenis kulit orang Indonesia.


Rangkaian perawatan wajah Pema Skincare cukup lengkap dan mewakili permasalahan kulit dan kebutuhan kulit wajah kita. Antara lain Anti Acne untuk kulit berjerawat, Anti Aging dan Lightening.
Sudah pasti bisa di tebak donk pasti aku pakai yang lightening series. 

Karena lumayan lengkap produknya maka yang aku pakai merupakan produk basic untuk mencerahkan wajah.


Sebelum lanjut tentang Lightening series nya aku ingin bahas soal packagingnya. Packagingnya tuh menurutku keren loh. Simple tapi gaesss aku suka banget sama tutupnya. Jadi jar nya terbuat dari kaca tebal dan tutupnya adalah kayu! Aku kira tiruan kayu tapi beneran kayu sih ini. Baru pertama kali ini aku punya skincare yang packagingnya unik dan Indonesia banget.
Logo desain Pema Skincare adalah bunga Lotus, bunga lotus merupakan lambang kecantikan.


Produknya di kemas dalam box dan pada bagian box nya terdapat info lengkap mengenai produk. PEMA Skincare aman ya karena sudah terdaftar BPOM dan terdapat QR kode anti pemalsuan, sehingga teman-teman yang mau pakai tidak perlu khawatir yesss.



Saatnya memperkenalkan rangkaian Pema Skincare yang aku pakai.

PEMA Face Cleanser 1
Produk pertama yang aku pakai itu face cleansernya. Kemasan face cleansernya berbentuk pump dengan botol kaca. Harus lebih hati-hati agar jangan sampai jatuh dan pecah.


Teksturnya seperti gel cleanser, ada busanya namun tidak begitu banyak. Sangat mild sekali di kulit. Saat ini memang aku lagi ada beberapa jerawat hormon dan cuci muka pakai face cleanser dari Pema ini tidak ada rasa pedih. Setelah di bilas kesat tapi wajah jadi halus. Untuk daya hapus sisa-sisa makeup aku acungi jempol, wajah berasa bersihnya. Tanpa harus di usap toner aku sudah berani nempelin cream diwajah. So far, Pema Face Cleanser jadi favoritku saat ini.

PEMA Lightening Oasis Serum
Packagingnya seperti minyak angin roll-on, jadi cara pakainya juga mudah tinggal oles di wajah dan leher, tap-tap, selesai deh.

PEMA Lightening Oasis Serum mengandung Vitamin C Ethyl Ascorbic Acid yang berfungsi untuk mengatasi radikal bebas dan mencegah hyperpigmentasi dan noda-noda hitam di wajah. Serum pencerah wajah satu ini juga dapat melembabkan kulit wajah kita. Teksturnya gel mirip face cleansernya, cepat meresap dikulit. Awalnya agak lengket ketika di aplikasikan dikulit namun setelah meresap tidak lengket lagi. 
Dua minggu menggunakan serum ini kulit wajahku jadi lebih kenyal dan halus. Untuk efek  mencerahkan mungkin ada tapi aku kurang memperhatikan ada perbedaan yang signifikan.

PEMA Lightening Oasis Cream 

Tidak ada keterangan cream pagi atau malam, jadi bebas mau dipakai pagi hari boleh atau malam hari juga boleh. Pema Lightening Oasis Cream mengandung Tranexamic Acid yang membantu mengatasi hiperpigmentasi, noda-noda hitam dan bekas jerawat.

Kalau dilihat dari penampakan tekstur cream nya, nampak cukup rich dan kental. Jangan salah, cream nya memang sedikit tebal namun begitu di baurkan dikulit akan cepat meresap. Ada sedikit sensasi cooling ketika kena kulit wajahku. Hasilnya velvet-matte, cukup melembabkan kulit wajahku dan tidak membuat wajah berminyak.

Dengan teksturnya yang rich ini 1 jar cream ukuran 15gr ini bisa aku pakai 1-1,5 bulan. Sedikit saja sudah cukup dipakai untuk seluruh wajah. Dipakai sebelum make up juga oke banget, makeup lebih mudah nempel dan tahan lama.
Hal yang aku suka ketika malam hari pakai Pema Lightening Oasis Cream, pada pagi harinya hidungku dan wajahku jadi berasa lembut banget. Efek cerahnya juga terasa sih meskipun tidak terlalu kelihatan. Yang jelas ketika bangun pagi wajahku tidak kucel lagi.

PEMA Sun-Mate 1
Produk terakhir PEMA Skincare yang aku pakai yaitu Pema Sun-mate 1. PEMA Sun-Mate 1 merupakan sunscreen untuk melindungi kulit kita dari sinar matahari. Produk ini bisa dipakai setelah kita memakai pelembab.


Setelah aku buka jar nya aku bisa nebak kalau tekstur cream nya bakal bikin wajah langsung cerah seketika. Semacam tone-up cream ketika di baurkan dikulit. Sedikit tricky ya kalau cream yang kita pakai agak tebal dan berwarna putih, saranku pakai sedikit demi sedikit biar rata.


Jujur saja, aku ini suka banget pakai produk yang langsung bikin wajah atau kulit langsung cerah instant. Karena wajahku warna kulitnya tidak merata jadi sangat tertolong dengan tone up cream.
Ada efek dingin setelah Sun-Mate ini dibaurkan dikulit. Kekurangannya yang aku rasakan dia kurang bisa ngeblend, nah maka itu pakainya dikit-dikit saja. Masalah warnanya sih dia bakal bikin wajah kita cerah tapi enggak putih berantakan kalau pakainya secukupnya.
Hasil pemakaian selama kurang lebih satu bulan wajahku memang lebih cerah, tapi tidak terlalu kelihatan banget. Teksturnya kulit jadi halus banget. Terus aku paling suka face cleanser karena kemampuan membersihkan sisa-sisa makeup oke. Dan juga serum nya tuh layak coba, bentuknya roll-on jadi mudah dipakai. Untuk noda-noda bekas jerawat di aku masih ada tapi ada perubahan sedikit memudar.

Meskipun termasuk brand lokal baru, PEMA Skincare cukup ringan di kulitku. Lembabnya dapet, cerahnya juga ada meskipun prosesnya lama. Kalian bisa beli dan cek info lengkap PEMA Skincare di instagram @pemaskincare ya teman-teman. Mereka ada platform di Shopee dan Tokopedia juga. :)
See you guys on my next post!
Thanks,



          

Sustainability, Vol. 11, Pages 6598: A Review of Agricultural Technology Transfer in Africa: Lessons from Japan and China Case Projects in Tanzania and Kenya

 Cache   
Agricultural technology transfer plays a chief role in transforming agricultural productivity in rural areas especially in the current setting where food demand surpasses the production capacity. Technology transfer facilitates the movement of soft and hard skills essential for improving farm production. Yet, the technical cooperation projects in Africa have been suffering from effectiveness and sustainability challenges while lacking responsiveness to local demand. This study applies a system dynamic method and a literature review to bring lessons from Japan and China’s experiences in agricultural technology transfer projects to Africa. Three cases in agricultural technical cooperation projects are presented: China—(Agricultural Technology Demonstration Center (ATDC) in Tanzania), Japan—(Smallholder Horticulture Empowerment Project (SHEP), and Rice Industry Development Support (RIDS) in Kenya and Tanzania, respectively). Japanese and Chinese agricultural technology has the potential to improve productivity and the livelihood of rural households. Nevertheless, strong linkages, commitment, and participation of all stakeholders in the design and implementation of agricultural technology transfer projects play an important role in enhancing project sustainability in the recipient countries. Further studies are recommended such as, to explain the agricultural technology transfer mechanism that fits well to equip beneficiary autonomy in terms of knowledge and capacity of production in the recipient country. The local governments need to set policy environments and institutional frameworks that encourage and support the agricultural technology transfer to benefit the rural farmers.

Third Jean Dujardin OSS 117 Spy Comedy Begins Filming!

 Cache   
A whole decade after the release of his second OSS 117 spy spoof, Lost in Rio (review here), Jean Dujardin (who picked up an Oscar for Best Actor in the interim) has at long last stepped back into the role that brought him international fame. Cameras began rolling this week on a third OSS 117 comedy, as announced by director Nicolas Bedos via video of a clapperboard on Instagram. OSS 117: Alerte rouge en Afrique noire (literally translated as OSS 117: Red Alert in Black Africa, which very much has the ring of a Jean Bruce novel title, but the ultimate English title is unlikely to be a direct translation of the French one) is scheduled to film in Paris and Kenya, with Bedos (La belle époque) taking the reins from Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist), who helmed the first two. Hazanavicius and Bedos both contributed to the controversial 2012 sex comedy portmanteau The Players, which also starred Dujardin. Jean-François Halin, who co-wrote the first two OSS 117 comedies with Hazanavicius and went on to create the very funny, Sixties-set comedic spy series Au service de la France (known as A Very Secret Service in America, where it streams on Netflix) handles solo scripting duties on this one. Pierre Niney (Yves Saint Laurent), Fatou N'Diaye (Spiral), and Wladimir Yordanoff (currently appearing with Dujardin in An Officer and a Spy) are also among the cast.

Hubert Bonisseur de la Bath, code name OSS 117, began life long before Dujardin. The redoubtable secret agent was the brainchild of French author Jean Bruce, and starred in a series of 234 novels (of which only a handful have ever been translated into English) beginning in 1949 (and thus predating Ian Fleming's more famous superspy). The books are serious spy stories, and the character was initially treated seriously on screen, too, beginning in the 1950s, but most famously in a series of five exceptional Eurospy movies directed or produced by André Hunebelle (Fantomas) between 1963 and 1968. (Read my review of my favorite, OSS 117: Terror in Tokyo, which presaged many James Bond moments, here.) Once notoriously hard to track down in English-friendly versions, Kino Lorber has now, happily, released a set of those five films on DVD and Blu-ray. For a more in-depth history of the character and links to my reviews of all the films, see my post OSS 117: An Introduction.

In 2006, Michel Hazanavicius revived the character in the hilarious send-up OSS 117: Cairo, Nest of Spies (review here). That first spoof was set in the Fifties and brilliantly parodied the early Bond films (with Dujardin partly channeling young Sean Connery) and Alfred Hitchcock movies... along with the prevalent casual racism and sexism of that era. The 2009 sequel was set in the late Sixties, spoofing the Sixties Bond movies and Eurospy movies.

A third film has been mooted ever since, always intended to be set in Africa. At one point it was supposed to be set in the Seventies and parody blaxploitation movies, Jason King, and Jean-Paul Belmondo action flicks, as well as the Roger Moore Bond movies (and fashions) of that period. Now, presumably since so much time has passed, Premiere reports that OSS 117: Alerte roughe en Afrique noire will be set in the 1980s. While I'm sorry we won't see Dujardin sporting Peter Wyngarde-style fashions, the Eighties setting will still provide ample opportunity to spoof the Moore Bond films and Belmondo, whose own African spy epic The Professional was made in 1981.
Thanks to Jack for the red alert on this one!
          

"Io e Gianni Morandi abbiamo perso nostra figlia. Fu lui a dirmi che non c'era più"

 Cache   

L’ex moglie di Gianni Morandi, Laura Efrikian, ha raccontato il dramma vissuto insieme al cantante, quando i due hanno perso la loro figlia, nata all’ottavo mese di gravidanza: “La bambina è nata di otto mesi e ha vissuto solo 9 ore, io non l’ho vista e neanche Gianni. Alla fine fu lui a dirmi che la bambina non c’era più”. 

L’attrice veneta ha poi aggiunto, in diretta al programma “Vieni da me” condotto da Caterina Balivo: “Quando sei incinta non pensi mai possa finire male, soprattutto quando hai vent’anni. Sei sicura che tutto andrà bene. Invece poi la realtà ti mette di fronte a un dramma. Ancora non ho ricordi ben precisi. Ho partorito ad otto mesi. Ricordo la corsa in clinica, verso la sala operatoria, le lenzuola bianche. Poi torno in camera e vedo che mi portano solo fiori. Dopo un po’ tornano le infermiere, prendono i fiori e li portano via. Sentivo una sensazione di disagio”.

“Poi Gianni venne, fu molto bravo, trovò le parole giuste. Eravamo due ragazzi che affrontavano una tragedia”, ha ricordato ancora. I due si sono sposati nel 1966: dopo la perdita della prima figlia, ne hanno avuti altri due, Marianna e Marco, e si sono separati definitivamente nel 1979. Ora, con cinque nipotini e il volontariato in Kenya, Laura Efrikian ha superato quel momento drammatico, ma non l’ha dimenticato. E di sé oggi dice: “Mi sento la donna più felice del mondo”.

Kantrowitz notes that students can often get a very good education at their in state public college for much less than a more "prestigious" private school. Typically the degrees that do the best on ROI lists are engineering focused credentials at the most selective schools, he says, because graduates' salaries tend to be higher. But when you consider the actual rate of return or the net price students pay at the school versus the outcome those same degrees do much better at in state public colleges because graduates of the schools earn only slightly less than those at their private peers and their degrees are so much cheaper..

Positive: 'Lobsters and octopuses are back': the Kenyan women leading a reef revival

 Cache   
Three years ago, the coral reef along the Kenyan coastline was almost totally destroyed in some areas. A fightback was needed and so the Kenya Marine and Fisheries Research Institute began working with local communities to rehabilitate degraded coral reefs along the country's coastline. Among the areas targeted was Wasini Island, a tiny strip of land off Kenya's south-east coast. The results have been startling. Women on the island have led an initiative to restore degraded coral that has shown how coral restoration techniques can revive marine ecosystems.

Rams made NFL history with yet another lopsided win over Cardinals

[theramswire.usatoday.com]

Cameron DaSilva

Before Sean McVay took over as head coach, the Rams had lost five of their last seven games against the Arizona Cardinals. Since he was hired, though, the tables have turned in a big way. It’s looked more like a David versus Goliath matchup since 2017, with the Rams being the latter instead of the former.

They’ve won five in a row over the Cardinals, each one in dominant fashion. The Rams have scored at least 30 points in each game and kept the Cardinals under 17 points in all five meetings, capped off by Sunday’s 34-7 victory by Los Angeles.

With it, the Rams made league history. They’re the first team ever to win five straight against a single opponent, scoring at least 30 points and allowing fewer than 17 in each game.

Here are the last five games between these two teams:

10/22/2017: Rams 33, Cardinals 0
12/03/2017: Rams 32, Cardinals 16
9/16/2018: Rams 34, Cardinals 0
12/23/2018: Rams 31, Cardinals 9
12/1/2019: Rams 34, Cardinals 7
In total, the Rams have outscored Arizona 164-32. That’s about as lopsided as it gets between two franchises.

The Cardinals were no match for Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon, being held to 81 yards on their first nine possessions before gaining 117 yards in garbage time. Kyler Murray was held completely in check, and Kenyan Drake proved to be a non-factor.

The Rams offense was equally impressive, scoring on five of their first seven drives. Jared Goff had his best game of the season, throwing for 424 yards and two touchdowns, while Todd Gurley added 95 yards rushing.

Kenya launches first county-level SGBV policy

 Cache   
26 Jun 2019

Meru County in Kenya became the first to adopt a county-level policy on sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). Approved in April 2019 and launched on June 26, 2019, the Meru County Policy on SGBV aims to close the gap between provisions in national legislation and the lived experience of SGBV survivors.

The adoption of the policy follows the Model Policy on SGBV for Counties, which provides guidance on minimum standards and critical elements needed to tailor the responses of local authorities to the specific SGBV challenges faced in different counties.

The county-level policy is particularly important for Meru given the high rates of SGBV, with surveys indicating that 66.7 per cent of women had experienced SGBV in the preceding 12 months.

The 2010 Kenyan Constitution provides that every person has the right to freedom and security and recognizes all international treaties ratified by Kenya – including the UN Declaration on the Elimination of Violence against Women. In 2014, Kenya also adopted the National Guidelines on the Management of Sexual Violence, providing a framework for the provision of services to SGBV survivors.

Notwithstanding these positive developments, SGBV remains prevalent. At the national level, 45 per cent of women in Kenya aged 15-49 have experienced either physical or sexual violence according to the 2014 Kenya Demographic Health Survey.

What’s more, the introduction of two levels of Government by the 2010 Constitution - national and county – created different operational structures in both policy and legal frameworks.

To mitigate possible disconnections, Kenya has made major strides in developing frameworks that ensure the effective response, prevention and management of SGBV.

“It is important to identify the factors that lead to gender inequality, unequal power relations and gender discrimination, since these are the main contributors of gender-based violence. This policy is adopted at an opportune time, since it will allow for the development of a baseline on the overarching causes of gender-based violence,” stated Shiro Mogeni, IDLO Gender Specialist at the Kenya Country Office.

“IDLO applauds Meru County for the adoption of this policy, which is trying to do something very ambitious: tackle a phenomenon that is not limited to specific regions, socioeconomic, religious or ethnic groups, but is instead happening everywhere and is potentially a risk for everyone,” Mogeni continued.

The Kenyan National Gender Equality Commission (NGEC) disseminated the Model Policy on SGBV for Counties to county governments, including the County of Meru. The newly adopted policies at the county level will create an enabling environment for the implementation of national and international measures meant to curb SGBV.

“This policy was developed on the principle that SGBV represents not only a human rights violation, but also a hidden obstacle to economic and social development. Domestic violence not only entails private costs for the victims and their families, but also wider social and economic costs, which in the end slow down the rate of development of a community,” commented Linner Nkirote Kailanya, Meru County Executive Committee Member for Education, Technology, Gender and Social Development.

“This policy will give effect to the various 2010 constitutional principles that prohibit SGBV and promote the rights to freedom and security. It will also empower women, transforming them from victims of gender-based violence into key drivers of the county’s structural transformation.”

IDLO’s technical support to eradicating SGBV in Kenya

IDLO provided technical support to develop both the Model Policy on SGBV for Counties and the Meru County Policy. In addition, IDLO supported the State Department for Gender Affairs to establish an Inter-Agency Committee to work on the creation of state-owned Gender-Based Violence Recovery Centres in 5 hospitals across all 47 counties. These centres will provide free medical services to SGBV survivors, including psycho-social support, temporary shelter for survivors of SGBV, linkage with the police to strengthen the chain of evidence, and a comprehensive database of SGBV survivors.

Beyond support to survivors, IDLO played a major role in supporting the training of 50 female judges from the International Association of Women Judges in December 2018. The training sought to discuss the role and contributions of women justice professionals in adjudicating cases of SGBV. Through this training, women judges from Kenya, Tanzania, South Sudan, Somalia, Zambia and Liberia shared experiences on SGBV cases and began the development of a regional network, which will facilitate the equitable solution of these disputes through peer-to-peer learning.

Through these contributions – from the adoption of SGBV policies to the provision of adequate services to SGBV survivors – IDLO is directly contributing to the ambitious target set by Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 5.2 of eliminating all forms of violence against women and girls worldwide.

Targeting Environmental Activists With Counterterrorism Measures is an Abuse of the Law

An Iranian court in November 2019 sentenced Bayani, Tahbaz, Jokar, Ghadirian, Khaleghi and Kashani to prison terms of 6 to 10 years.

Protecting the endangered Asiatic cheetah. Tweeting a satirical poem. Attending a climate conference. Campaigning against a power plant. These actions hardly conjure images of suicide bombers or coup plotters. Yet, they have been labelled “eco-terrorism,” “extremism,” or “threats to national security” by governments and businesses that seek to block the work of environmental activists.

As young people around the world gather for a global climate strike on Friday, and as the 25th Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP25) begins in Madrid on Monday, conference delegates would do well to consider that one important way to protect the environment is to protect environmental defenders.

To be sure, environmentalists face dangers beyond being labelled security threats. From the Amazon rainforest to South African mining communities, activists defending ecosystems and ancestral lands are threatened, attacked and even killed with near-total impunity. But the unjust labelling of environmentalists as dangerous criminals or threats to national security is often more insidious, as it is generally carried out under the aegis of the law.

Authorities have an obligation to prosecute criminal acts. But typically, environmental defenders peacefully exercise their rights to freedom of speech, association, and assembly. Only in exceptional cases would their acts meet a generally-accepted definition of terrorism. And when environmentalists engage in civil disobedience, they do not usually aim to undermine the rule of law. Yet, we should consider the following:

  • In Poland, days before hosting the COP24 in December 2018, authorities issued a terrorism alert and denied entry to at least 13 foreign climate activists registered to attend, calling them security threats. Poland also empowered the police to collect data about conference participants without judicial oversight or participants’ knowledge.
  • In France, days before hosting the COP21 in November 2015, authorities placed at least 24 climate activists under house arrest using emergency counterterrorism measures enacted after the deadly Paris attacks that month. The activists were accused of flouting a ban on COP21 protests.
  • In Iran, eight members of the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation, imprisoned since early 2018, were just handed prison terms of up to 10 years for allegedly spying for the US. During a flawed trial, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards accused them of using their work protecting the endangered Asiatic cheetah as a cover. The group’s founder, also arrested in 2018, died in custody under suspicious circumstances.
  • In Kenya, authorities have unjustly accused environmental activists opposing a mega-infrastructure project of ties to the extremist armed group al-Shabab and threatened, beat, and arbitrarily detained them. In July, a court suspended the project’s coal-fired power plant. Activists contend the development will still destroy forests, kill fish, and displace communities.
  • In the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte in 2018 placed 600 civil society activists, including environmentalists, on a list of alleged members of the country’s communist party and its armed wing, which he declared to be a terrorist organisation. Until a court intervened, the list included Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, an indigenous Filipina who is the UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples and has protested Philippines mining projects.
  • In Ecuador, eight years passed before environmental activist José “Pepe” Acacho was cleared of “terrorism” charges for opposing mining and oil exploration in the Amazon.
  • In the US in 2018, the then-interior secretary blamed wildfires on “environmental terrorist groups” that opposed logging. In 2017, a pipeline operator sued Greenpeace and other environmental groups for a “rogue eco-terrorist” campaign against an oil pipeline. A court dismissed the lawsuit in February. Largely peaceful protesters said the underground pipeline threatened Native American sacred sites and drinking water.
  • In Russia, since 2012, at least 14 environmental organisations have had their work curtailed and in June, the head of the group Ecodefence!, fled the country to avoid being targeted under an abusive “foreign agents” law. In April, a court fined an environmental activist for “mass distribution of extremist materials” for posting a satirical poem about mining oligarchs.

During the COP25, participating governments should encourage activists to air their concerns about the climate crisis and their own safety, and draw on their combined expertise to help identify solutions.

They should also commit to rigorously implementing treaties that protect environmental defenders. One is the Aarhus Convention, which the European Union and Poland have been criticised for flouting. Another is Latin America’s Escazu Agreement, which requires just five additional ratifications to enter into force. Chile, which will preside over the COP25, should lead by example and ratify it.

COP25 delegates should recognize that to genuinely protect the environment, they also need to protect its defenders—including those unjustly targeted in the name of security.

Targeted: Counterterrorism Measures Take Aim at Environmental Activists

 Cache   

On November 29, 2019, young people will gather at locations around the world for a Fridays for Future Global Climate Strike. On December 2, United Nations delegates, world leaders, business executives, and activists will meet at the 25th Conference of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP25) in Madrid to discuss ways to protect the environment. Participants in these events should also discuss ways to protect the protectors: the individuals and groups targeted around the world for their efforts on behalf of the planet.

The dangers facing environmental defenders do not stop at accusations that they are national security risks. From the Amazon rainforest to South African mining communities, activists seeking to preserve ecosystems and ancestral lands are being threatened, attacked, and even killed with near total impunity, Human Rights Watch has found. But in contrast to many of these illegal acts, the unjust labeling of environmentalists as security threats is often more insidious, as it is generally carried out under the color of law.

And while not all environmental activism is peaceful, only in exceptional cases would the actions of environmental activists meet a generally recognized definition of terrorism – actions aimed at terrorizing populations by causing or threatening death or serious physical harm to others to advance an ideological or political agenda. Nor, in nearly all cases, do their actions aim to undermine the rule of law. Typically, these individuals and groups are peacefully exercising their rights to freedom of speech, association, and assembly. When they engage in civil disobedience, their aim is usually to strengthen – and improve the enforcement of – existing environmental protection measures. Here are a few examples where environmental activists have been smeared as terrorists or other national security threats:

  • In Poland, the authorities denied entry in December 2018 to at least 13 foreign climate activists who were registered to attend COP24 in the southern city of Katowice, contending they posed a threat to public order and national security. Along with other individuals and groups, the activists had planned to press COP24 participants for rapid action to address climate change.

    The authorities had previously passed a special law empowering the police to collect data about conference participants without judicial oversight or the participants’ knowledge and consent and ban spontaneous protests during COP24. They also issued a terrorism alert that authorized increased vehicle checks and other security controls for Katowice and surrounding areas for the duration of the summit. Border officials detained and questioned several activists for hours, in some cases without allowing them to communicate their location or contact a lawyer.

  • In November 2015, French police used a sweeping counterterrorism emergency law enacted in response to the deadly Paris attacks earlier that month to place at least 24 climate activists under house arrest without judicial warrant, raid activists’ homes, and seize computers and personal belongings.

    The activists were accused of flouting a ban on organizing protests related to COP21, which was being held in France the following week to sign the Paris Agreement on reducing emissions that contribute to global warming.

  • In Iran, six members of the Persian Wildlife Heritage Foundation (PWHF), imprisoned since early 2018, were handed prison terms of up to 10 years in November for allegedly spying for the United States. During a deeply flawed trial, the Islamic Revolutionary Guards said the environmentalists used their work to protect the Asiatic cheetah – one of the world’s most endangered species – as a cover. A charge against four of the accused of “spreading corruption on Earth,” a crime that can carry the death penalty, was reportedly dropped in October. Two other PWHF members also detained in early 2018 were awaiting judgment. A ninth environmentalist, PWHF founder Kavous Seyed Emami, died a few weeks after his arrest under suspicious circumstances in what the Iranian authorities alleged to be a suicide.

An Iranian court in November 2019 sentenced Bayani, Tahbaz, Jokar, Ghadirian, Khaleghi and Kashani to prison terms of 6 to 10 years.

    Issa Kalantari, the head of Iran’s Department of Environment, said there was no evidence that the detained environmentalists were spies. He said the arrests have had a chilling effect on environmental groups in the country.

    The arrests appear to be motivated both by Iran’s “paranoia” about foreign countries using environmentalists as cover and its recognition that anger over environmental degradation can unite populations against government policies, said Kaveh Madani, the country’s former deputy environmental director. Madani returned to his native Iran from London in 2017 to take up the post, but said he was immediately detained and questioned by Revolutionary Guards, who broke into his phone, computer, emails, and social media accounts, and called him a “bioterrorist,” a “water terrorist,” and a spy. He left Iran after seven months, alleging repeated harassment including for his criticism of dam projects, which are constructed by the Revolutionary Guards.

  • In Kenya, the police and military have frequently labeled environmental activists opposing a mega-infrastructure project in the Lamu coastal region, including a coal-fired power plant, as “terrorists” while subjecting them to threats, beatings, and arbitrary arrests and detentions. In 15 cases documented by Human Rights Watch between 2013 and 2016, the authorities accused environmental defenders of membership in, or links to, the extremist armed group al-Shabab but provided no compelling evidence.

    The activists are protesting construction of the Lamu Port-South Sudan-Ethiopia Transport (LAPSSET) corridor, the biggest infrastructure project in Central and East Africa, which is to include a 32-berth seaport, three international airports, a road and railway network, and three resort cities. They contend that LAPSSET will pollute the air and water, destroy mangrove forests and breeding grounds for fish, and take farmland without just compensation, displacing communities and destroying their livelihoods.

    In July, Kenya’s environmental tribunal blocked approval of the power plant absent a new environmental impact study, finding the China-backed developers’ original assessment and public consultation process inadequate. The rest of the LAPSSET project continues. So does the intimidation campaign, activists protesting LAPSSET told Human Rights Watch.

  • In the Philippines, President Rodrigo Duterte in 2018 placed 600 civil society members, including environmentalists and indigenous rights defenders, on a list of alleged members of the country’s communist party and its armed wing, which he declared to be a terrorist organization. Duterte’s “terrorist list” included Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, an indigenous Filipina who is the UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples and a climate change activist.

    In late 2017, Tauli-Corpuz had criticized the government for attacks and other abuses against indigenous communities that opposed coal and diamond mining on ancestral lands. Although a Manila court months later ordered the government to remove Tauli-Corpuz from the list, a Philippines military official in 2019 renewed the campaign against her, accusing her of “infiltrating” the UN for the communist insurgents. Several UN human rights experts condemned Tauli-Corpuz’s listing.

  • In Ecuador, eight years passed before the prominent environmental activist José “Pepe” Acacho, a Shuar indigenous leader, was able to clear himself of “terrorism” charges for his activities opposing mining and oil exploration in the Amazon. Acacho was charged with terrorism in 2010 for allegedly inciting violence during Shuar protests against a mining law.

    He was convicted in 2013 and sentenced to 12 years in prison. Human Rights Watch reviewed the trial documents and found no credible evidence of terrorism-related crimes. In 2018, Ecuador’s highest court threw out the terrorism conviction but instead sentenced him to eight months in prison for “public services obstruction” – a charge for which he was never tried and hence never had the opportunity to contest. Acacho spent 17 days in jail before receiving a presidential pardon in October 2018.

  • In the US in August 2018, then-US Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke blamed “environmental terrorist groups” that opposed logging for wildfires on the West Coast – a proposition immediately attacked by leading environmental organizations including the Sierra Club. In 2017, 84 members of the US Congress, most of them Republicans, asked the Justice Department if activists mobilizing against the construction of oil pipelines could be prosecuted as terrorists. (The department’s response was that in some cases, yes.)

    That same year, a major pipeline operator, Energy Transfer Partners LP, filed a lawsuit against Greenpeace and other environmental groups, accusing them of launching a “rogue eco-terrorist” campaign against the Dakota Access crude oil pipeline. Environmental activists and Native American tribes had tried to block construction of the 1,172-mile-long, underground pipeline through North Dakota during a protracted standoff with the authorities in 2016, saying it threatened sacred sites and drinking water. A federal court dismissed the lawsuit earlier this year.

    Although the protesters were largely peaceful, some resorted to violence and were convicted of protest-related crimes, but none for offenses that even remotely approximated terrorism. UN experts condemned security force responses to the protests as “excessive,” including their use of rubber bullets, teargas, compression grenades, mace, and “inhuman and degrading” detention conditions.

  • In Russia, at least 14 environmental groups have stopped work in recent years, and the head of the prominent group Ekozaschita! (Ecodefense!), Alexandra Koroleva, fled the country in June to avoid prosecution under the draconian Law on Foreign Agents. The 2012 law requires any Russian group accepting foreign funding and carrying out activities deemed to be “political” to register as a “foreign agent,” a term that in Russia implies “spy” or “traitor.” Authorities have used the law to silence groups that opposed state-sanctioned development projects and petitioned authorities for the release of imprisoned environmental activists, a Human Rights Watch investigation found.

    Alexandra Koroleva, the head of the Russian nongovernmental organization Ecodefense, fled to Germany in June 2019 to avoid being targeted under the abusive Russian “foreign agents” law.

    Russian officials including the special envoy for environmental protection, Sergey Ivanov, have applied the “extremist” label to Greenpeace Russia. An activist with Stop GOK, a Russian group seeking to block mining and enrichment plants, was fined in April 2019 for “mass distribution of extremist materials” because he published a poem on the organization’s social media page that the government had banned as extremist in 2012. The Russian nongovernmental organization SOVA Center, which analyzes counter-extremism trends, found that the poem, “Last Wish to the Ivans,” is a satirical address to destitute, alcohol and drug-addicted Russians from oligarchs and authorities profiting from extracting natural resources.

    Stop GOK and Greenpeace Russia were among groups named in a 2018 report by pro-government technologists as “environmental extremists” working for “influential forces in the West” bent on sabotaging strategic industries. The report was widely covered by state-controlled media.

Civil society participation will be crucial to ambitious outcomes at COP25. Parties to the summit, which include all UN member countries and the European Union, should allow activists ample opportunity to air their concerns about the climate crisis and use their combined expertise to help identify solutions. They should also provide activists with a safe space to speak out about the threats they face for carrying out their work.

In addition, parties should publicly commit to robustly carrying out international and regional treaties that protect environmental defenders. One of these treaties is the Escazu Agreement (the Regional Agreement on Access to Information, Public Participation and Justice in Environmental Matters in Latin America and the Caribbean), the world’s first covenant to include specific provisions promoting and protecting environmental defenders. Twenty-one countries have signed the 2018 agreement. But only six countries have ratified it – five shy of the ratifications needed to enter it into force. Chile, which stepped down as COP25 host because of protests stemming from economic grievances, but will still preside over the negotiations in Madrid, should lead by example and ratify the agreement.

COP25 participants should also commit to upholding the Aarhus Convention (the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe Convention on Access to Information, Public Participation in Decision-making and Access to Justice in Environmental Matters), to which Spain is a signatory. The convention – an environmental pact for Europe, the European Union, and Central Asia – grants the public, including environmental groups, an array of rights including public participation and access to information and justice in governmental decisions on the environment, without harassment or persecution. Parties to the treaty, including the EU, and Poland for its crackdown at COP24, have been criticized – including in some cases by the Aarhus Convention’s own oversight body – for flouting these provisions.

COP25 delegates should recognize that to genuinely protect the environment, they also need to protect its defenders – including those unjustly targeted in the name of security.

Community case management of lower chest indrawing pneumonia with oral amoxicillin in children in Kenya.

Acta Paediatr. 2018 12;107 Suppl 471:44-52

Authors: Onono M, Abdi M, Mutai K, Asadhi E, Nyamai R, Okoth P, Qazi SA

Abstract
AIM: To determine the accuracy and effectiveness of community health workers (CHWs) when compared to trained nurses for management of pneumonia in Kenyan children.
METHODS: In Homabay County in western Kenya, children 2-59 months of age with lower chest indrawing pneumonia were identified, classified and treated by CHWs with oral amoxicillin (90 mg/kg per day) for five days at home. Trained nurses visited the child within 24 hours to verify diagnosis; and on day 4 and 14 to assess treatment outcomes.
RESULTS: CHWs identified 1906 children with lower chest indrawing pneumonia. There was an 88.7% concordance in classification and treatment for lower chest indrawing pneumonia by CHWs compared to nurses. Children with moderate malnutrition (OR 1.68; 95% CI: 1.22-2.30), comorbidities such as diarrhoea or malaria (OR 1.55; 95% CI: 1.32-1.81) or an additional day of delay in care seeking (OR 1.06; 95% CI: 1.02-1.10) were more likely to have an incorrect classification of lower chest indrawing by the CHW. Comorbidity (OR 1.66; 95% CI: 1.12-2.48) and fast breathing (OR 4.66; 95% CI: 1.26-17.27) were significantly associated with treatment failure on day 14.
CONCLUSION: CHWs can correctly manage lower chest indrawing pneumonia even in high-mortality settings, such as western Kenya, in sub-Saharan Africa.

Using the RE-AIM framework to evaluate the implementation of integrated community case management in Kenya.

Acta Paediatr. 2018 12;107 Suppl 471:53-62

Authors: Onono M, Abdi M, Opondo I, Okung'u J, Asadhi E, Nyamai R, Karimurio L, Okoth P, Qazi SA

Abstract
AIM: To evaluate an integrated community case management programme for sick children aged 2 to 59 months in western Kenya using the Research, Effectiveness, Adoption, Implementation and Maintenance (RE-AIM) framework.
METHODS: This was a prospective observational research project conducted between December 2013 and February 2016. Outcome variables were measured before, during and at end of implementation using a series of surveys as well as by looking at routine service statistics.
RESULTS: A total of 2604 community health workers were trained in 245 community units. The average post-training knowledge level (73.5%) and retention rates (89.7) of trained community health workers was high. At the end of study, there was an increase in the proportion of children who received appropriate treatment for diarrhoea (49.2%), pneumonia (19.5%), malaria (16.4%) and vitamin A (51.5%) from baseline. Community health workers were able to assess, classify and treat sick children with a similar quality as that provided by facility-based healthcare workers (>85% concordance).
CONCLUSION: Based on the RE-AIM metrics, our results demonstrate promising practical approaches and outcomes of a large-scale implementation of integrated community case management in western Kenya. The findings have important implications for future design and expansion of the programme in Kenya.

Pizza Hut adalah salah satu restoran makanan piza kegemaran Maha kerana apa bukan sahaja kerana kesedapnya tapi juga keunikan setiap musim piza yang dihasilkan.

Begitu juga untuk kali ini Pizza Hut bawakan Black Volcano Pizza yang menampilkan konsep unik bersama limpahan lava berkeju, ketulan ayam rangup di atas kerak piza berwarna hitam. Selalu kita tengok pizza warna keperangan bila dibakar tapi yang ini berwarna hitam kerana ada campuran arang seakan-akan gunung berapi dengan lavar yang meleleh melalui cheese banyak disekelilingnya.

Sekilas Mengenai Penyakit Vitiligo

User-added image


Vitiligo memang merupakan penyakit yang sangat serius bagi setiap orang. Penyakit yang terbilang aneh ini merupakan momok yang cukup menakutkan bagi setiap orang. Betapa tidak, gejala yang ditimbulkan penyakit ini adalah munculnya bercak putih pada kulit yang bisa terus menyebar seiring waktu berjalan. Lebih dari itu, bercak putih dari penyakit vitiligo ini cukup sulit untuk dihilangkan dan bisa muncul pada bagian tubuh mana saja, yang jelas akan mengganggu penampilan.

Seperti yang telah dibahas pada beberapa artikel sebelumnya, penyakit vitiligo belum diketahui pasti mengenai penyebabnya. Hal tersebut juga yang menyebabkan penyakit vitiligo sulit disembuhkan dan bisa terus berkembang serta meluas area bercak putih yang ditimbulkannya. Meskipun vitiligo ini tidak akan menular, berbeda dengan penyakit kulit lainnya.

“Tidak akan ada asap kalau tidak ada api”. Peribahasa tersebut juga berlaku untuk penyakit vitiligo. Ya, meskipun sampai saat ini penyebabnya belum diketahui secara pasti, namun pasti ada beberapa hal yang bisa ditenggarai menjadi penyebab atau pemicu terjadinya vitiligo. Dan hal itupun telah didalami oleh beberapa ahli melalui beberapa penelitian. Dan hasilnya, diduga kuat vitiligo terjadi akibat reaksi sistem kekebalan tubuh yang terlalu aktif, di mana sistem imun keliru menyerang sel atau jaringan tubuh yang sehat, yakni sel melanosit. Akibatnya, poduksi melanin jadi berkurang dan menyebabkan warna kulit jadi tidak merata dengan timbulnya bercak putih di kulit yang disebut dengan vitiligo. Karena melanin sendiri merupakan senyawa yang bertanggung jawab penuh dalam menentukan warna kulit dan melindungi dari efek buruk sinar matahari.

Selain penyebabnya yang belum diketahui pasti, vitiligo juga sering kali tidak disadari kemunculannya oleh penderitanya itu sendiri, karena kurangnya pengetahuan setiap orang mengenai penyakit vitiligo itu sendiri. Dan dengan gejalanya berupa bercak putih pada kulit, penyakit ini kemungkinan dianggap sama dengan penyakit kulit pada umumnya yang notabene cukup mudah disembuhkan. Padahal pada kenyataannya penyakit ini cukup sulit disembuhkan. Meskipun tidak menutup kemungkinan penyakit ini bisa disembuhkan. Karena setiap penyakit pasti bisa disembuhkan dan pasti ada obatnya.

Dengan dugaan kuat adanya gangguan imunitas sebagai penyebab terjadinya vitiligo, penyakit ini juga digolongkan sebagai penyakit autoimun, yaitu suatu penyakit akibat dari reaksi imun (sistem kekebalan tubuh) yang terlalu aktif hingga menyerang dan merusak sel atau jaringan tubuh yang sehat. Dan hal itu juga menyebabkan penyakit vitiligo ini memiliki resiko besar diderita oleh penderita diabetes melitus tipe 1, sebagai komplikasi. Sebab, penyakit diabetes melitus tipe 1 sama-sama merupakan penyakit autoimun.

Dan berikut ini juga ada beberapa faktor yang sangat beresiko menyebabkan vitiligo, antara lain :
  • Faktor genetik atau keturunan.
  • Mengidap penyakit autoimun seperti psoriasis, diabetes, hipertiroidisme, dsb.
  • Stres psikis.
  • Kerusakan kulit, misalnya akibat terbakar matahari.
  • Terpajan senyawa kimia tertentu.
Solusi Pengobatan Vitiligo Yang Sudah Terbukti Efektif, Ampuh, dan Aman Tanpa Efek Samping

Untuk mengatasi dan mengobati penyakit vitiligo sampai hilang, bersih dan sembuh, Obat Vitiligo Yang Ampuh dan Sudah Terbukti menjadi solusi yang harus anda pilih, dan rekomendasi obat vitiligo herbal yang tepat dipilih adalah Gold G Bio Sea Cucumber atau yang sering disebut Jelly Gamat Gold G. Obat herbal vitiligo ini terbukti efektif mengobati vitiligo dengan menyamarkan bercak putih vitiligo sampai perlahan-lahan memudar dan hilang. Caranya dengan dioles dan juga diminum, karena Gold G Bio Sea Cucumber ini merupakan herbal pertama yang cara pemakaiannya bisa diminum dan dioles, lantaran teksturnya berupa cairan kental (jely) yang bisa diminum dan dioles untuk pengobatan penyakit kulit supaya hasilnya lebih optimal.

Alasan Kenapa Gold G Bio Sea Cucumber Berkhasiat Mengobati Vitiligo

User-added image


Gold G Bio Sea Cucumber atau yang sering disebut Jelly Gamat Gold G memang layak dipilih sebagai obat untuk menghilangkan vitiligo. Hal itu dikarenakan kandungan yang dimiliki obat herbal ini cocok dan bagus untuk mengatasi penyakit vitiligo. Selain itu, bahan dasar utama pembuatan Gold Bio Sea Cucumber ini banyak mengandung nutrisi yang sangat penting untuk kesehatan, termasuk kesehatan kulit. Sehingga selain mengobati vitiligo juga menyehatkan kulit.

Gold G Bio Sea Cucumber ini dibuat dengan menggunakan hewan laut kaya sebagai bahan dasar utamnya, yaitu teripang atau gamat. Yang mana jenis yang digunakan adalah jenis teripang terbaik, yaitu Golden Stichopus Variegatus atau biasa disebut teripang emas.Teripang emas ini dipilih dari 1.000 jenis lebih teripang yang ada di seluruh dunia dan memiliki keunggulan tersendiri karena menjadi satu-satunya jenis teripang yang mengandung zat Gamapeptide, zat yang berkhasiat sebagai obat alami penyakit.

Bupati Rohul terima penghargaan API 2019 dari Kemenparekraf RI

 Cache   

Rokan Hulu 
(mahardikanews) 
Bupati Rokan Hulu (Rohul) menerima penghargaan Anugerah Pesona Indonesia (API) Award dari Kementerian Pariwisata dan Ekonomi Kreatif Republik Indonesia.

Penghargaan API 2019 dari Kementerian Pariwisata dan Ekonomi Kreatif (Kemenparekraf) RI melalui Badan Ekonomi Kreatif Nasional, diberikan langsung oleh Staf Ahli Menteri Pariwisata Bidang Multikultural Guntur Sakti kepada Bupati Rohul Sukiman atas objek wisata di daerahnya yakni Suligi Hill yang berlokasi di Desa Aliantan Kecamatan Kabun meraih Juara I dalam kategori wisata terbaik dataran tinggi.

Kehadiran orang nomor satu Rohul itu di pagelaran acara penerimaan penghargaan di Gedung Pesona Kementerian Pariwisata Jakarta Kamis (22/11/2019) malam, turut didampingi Wakil Gubernur Riau Edi Natar Nasution, Kepala Dinas Pariwisata dan Kebudayaan (Disparbud) Rohul Syofwan, Kabid Pemasaran Disparbud Epi, Ketua Genpi Tanti Ekasari dan Bendahara Indah Tarigan, serta para Kepala Dinas Pariwisata kabupaten/kota se-Riau.

Bupati Rohul Sukiman usai menerima penghargaan menilai Anugerah Pesona Indonesia atau API merupakan ajang bergengsi tingkat nasional, sebab wisata yang dilombakan sebagai suatu persaingan sehat daerah dan masyarakat dalam upaya meningkatkan sektor pariwisata, sekaligus pengakuan serta promosi wisata daerah di tingkat nasional.

Bupati mengaku bangga karena Kabupaten Rohul berhasil untuk pertama kalinya meraih penghargaan tersebut dengan mengusulkan destinasi wisata Suligi Hill 812 meter diatas permuakaan laut (MDPL) dalam kategori objek wisata dataran tinggi.

Mantan Dandim Indragiri Hilir (Inhil) itu menilai penghargaan ke daerahnya sangat membanggakan, karena dari 514 kabupaten/kota di Indonesia yang masuk nominasi, 180 kabupaten dan kota termasuk Rohul berhasil memperoleh penghargaan dari 18 kategori wisata terbaik.

“Keberhasilan ini tentunya membanggakan kita semua, mengingat hanya Kabupaten Rohul yang berhasil meraih Juara I dari 5 destinasi objek wisata dan 1 kuliner untuk daerah-daerah di Provinsi Riau. Selain Suligi Hill, 4 penghargaan API 2019 lainnya juga berhasil diperoleh oleh Provinsi Riau”, ujar Bupati Rohul Sukiman.

Sementara Staf Ahli Menteri Pariwisata Bidang Multikultural Guntur Sakti, mengucapkan terima kasih dan memberikan apresiasi tinggi kepada pemerintah daerah yang telah berhasil meraih penghargaan. Pemerintah daerah di kabupaten/kota menurutnya sebagai pengelola destinasi wisata dan kuliner.

Guntur menyebutkan 5 destinasi wisata dan kuliner makanan tradisional terpopuler di Provinsi Riau meliputi Suligi Hill Aliantan dari Kabupaten Rohul sebagai Juara I objek wisata dataran tinggi terpopuler, Lari Tual Sagu Kabupaten Kepulauan Meranti Juara II kategori olah raga petualangan terpopuler.

Kemudian Sampan Leper dari Kabupaten Inhil meraih Juara III kategori festival budaya terpopuler, Tepian Bandar Sungai Jantan Kabupaten Siak Juara III kategori wisata baru terpopuler, Gulamo dari Kabupaten Kampar Juara III kategori surga tersembunyi terpopuler, dan Kue Talam Durian dari Kota Pekanbaru Juara II dari katerogi makanan tradisional terpopuler.

Untuk keberhasilan objek wisata yang diraih Suligi Hill Aliantan 812 MDPL oleh daerah Kabupaten Rohul terangnya bukan dicapai secara tiba-tiba atau mendadak, melainkan dengan proses yang serius oleh Kementerian melalui voting selama 4 bulan mulai bulan Juli sampai Oktober lalu. Voting yang dilakukan memanfaatkan teknologi informasi seperti SMS dan Video.

Pengembangan selanjutnya dan penjagaan destinasi wisata yang telah berhasil didapat dalam API Award 2019 menurutnya bukan hanya tugas dari pemerintah daerah, namun wajib melibatkan komunitas-komunitas pariwisata seperti Genpi, Kelompok Sadar Wisata atau Pokdarwis, masyarakat dan para Generasi Milenial.

Pihaknya berharap penghargaan yang diperoleh pemerintah daerah dapat memberikan nilai tambah ekonomi yang mampu mensejahterakan masyarakat, meningkatkan citra juga reputasi pariwisata di daerah, dan memberikan kontribusi besar terhadap pendapatan asli daerah atau PAD.

“Kita harap dengan prestasi ini bisa menjadi motivasi untuk daerah kedepannya, dan hendaknya harapan wisatawan jangan terlalu jauh berbeda antara persepsi dengan kenyataan”, imbuh Staf Ahli Menteri Pariwisata Bidang Multikultural Guntur Sakti.*(red-mnc)

Episode 77: How can we share evolutionary science as widely as possible?

 Cache   

On this Monday episode, Ella Beaudoin (The Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History Human Origins Program) talks about a whole range of topics: science communication with diverse and religious publics, evolutionary anthropology as a discipline and fieldwork experiences at Koobi Fora in northern Kenya.

Why is it important for students and teachers in more religiously conservative parts of the United States to be aware of how evolutionary mechanisms work? What is Ella's favorite object that she has held and studied in her time out in the field? What are some of the challenging situations or comments that science communicators grapple with sometimes and how does Ella address these in her role at the Museum? What are some of the most exciting discoveries in palaeoanthropology this past year?

You can find more information in the show notes under the episode on our website.

Mueller, Barr, Giuliani, Comey and Kallstrom Once Fought Terror Together—Now Trump Has Them Fight Each Other

 Cache   

Mueller, Barr, Giuliani, Comey and Kallstrom Once Fought Terror Together—Now Trump Has Them Fight Each OtherPhoto Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/GettyThe constellation of federal investigators, attorneys, prosecutors and judges orbiting Donald Trump in the last three years have a unique, shared history.Relatively unknown to the American public is the fact that before many of them became household names, cast as either the heroes or villains of the Trump saga (depending on where you stand on Trump), they were colleagues in the trenches of some of America’s biggest terrorism cases. They crossed paths numerous times in courtrooms and at crime scenes, often united by a single case.  From my perch working for the House Intelligence Committee, at the FBI as a congressional liaison, and then on the 9/11 Joint Inquiry, I observed what in many respects were their finest achievements, how those played out politically, how they fought their turf battles at home and with foreign governments, how they learned to communicate with the American public after each tragedy—and ultimately, fundamentally how they changed America’s approach to national security.  If Trump’s Rage Brings ‘Civil War,’ Where Will the Military Stand?In the 1990s, as hundreds of Americans were being slaughtered in acts of terrorism from Oklahoma City to Kenya to lower Manhattan—and while Donald Trump was hosting teenage beauty pageants—these men helped capture, extradite, prosecute, and put away for life some of the worst mass murderers of American citizens in our nation’s history. But now they have become caricatures and cable news fodder—and their reputations are part of the professional carnage that comes to almost everyone who is part of the Donald Trump story. They are known to the American public primarily for the things they have said, for one reason or the other, about Trump—and even more to the point, for what he has said about them.Rudy Giuliani, James Comey, Robert Mueller, William Barr, James Kallstrom, and Louis Freeh have all taken divergent paths over the past few years. But in the more than two decades that preceded Trump’s descent down the golden escalator on election night 2016, their résumés overlapped as they worked to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice in such cases as Pan Am 103, a 747 blown up over Lockerbie, Scotland; the devastated Federal Building in Oklahoma City; the Khobar Towers full of American personnel, blown up in Saudi Arabia; the Atlanta Olympics bombing; the devastated American embassies in Tanzania and Kenya; the attack on the USS Cole at anchor in Yemen; then, of course 9/11. And it’s a sad fact that the work they did during their impressive law enforcement careers got lost in the noise created by Trump’s presidency.Most interesting of all, however, is the fact that for most of these men, what they thought of Trump in 2016 had a lot to do with their opinion of the occupants of the White House—Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton—during those years their lives had intersected. Those opinions proved to be enduring and consequential. * * *THE DIRECTOR* * *In September 1993, Federal Judge Louis J. Freeh walked out of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and into FBI Headquarters as its new Director. Both his youth, 43 years of age, and his background as a former FBI agent, made him an inspired choice to lead the Bureau when nominated by the new American President, Bill Clinton. Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Cynthia Johnson/The LIFE Images Collection viaGettyFreeh’s predecessor, William Sessions, had not completed his 10-year term as director before a report alleging ethical improprieties was released by President George H. W. Bush’s Attorney General William Barr (yes, the same William Barr who is today Trump’s Attorney General).Sessions refused to exit his position voluntarily, so it was left to Clinton’s new attorney general, Janet Reno, to fire him. Clinton may wish he had held on to Sessions. The new president and the new FBI Director would soon be at loggerheads. Although there was still a sense of excitement in Washington over the generational shift that the 1992 election represented, the fact was the Clinton administration began as an unmitigated disaster. It seemed undisciplined and chaotic to Freeh, and its early days were consumed with FBI investigations into Filegate, Travelgate, Whitewater, Paula Jones and Jennifer Flowers, and even an investigation into China’s attempts to meddle in the 1992 elections. And, most mysteriously, there was the investigation into the shocking suicide of Bill and Hillary’s long-time friend from Arkansas, Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster. FBI agents walked around the halls dispirited, talking about their affection for George H.W. Bush and their disdain for the dirty campaign they felt the Clintons had waged against him. While Clinton came off cool (playing sax on The Arsenio Hall Show, for example), “The Wimp Factor” tagline stuck to George H.W. Bush—a man who had flown 50 combat missions during World War II, had been one of the Navy’s youngest aviators and was a recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross.  Freeh, who had been appointed a federal judge by the senior Bush, had a deep affection for him. He accepted the job as FBI Director even though he believed not only that the wrong man had won the presidency, but was firmly convinced that the winner, Clinton, was dirty. In those years, the FBI’s antipathy towards the Clintons flowed from the top down—and would become ingrained in its organizational culture. For his part, had Clinton wanted an FBI Director who would do his bidding and sweep his scandals under the rug (which the current president seems to believe is part of the job description), he knew damn well it wouldn’t be Freeh. Yet, he courted Freeh. Freeh, considered tough and clean as a hound’s tooth, would give the new Clinton Administration a patina of ethical validity it desperately needed. But Freeh’s FBI was immediately immersed in investigating Clinton’s skeletons. Freeh gave back his White House pass that had allowed him unlimited, unrecorded, access to the White House believing it would pose a conflict of interest while the Clintons were under investigation. Clinton, now realizing Freeh would be breathing down his neck, was not happy with this slap in the face. But during his entire administration, and with the endless ethical clouds that hung over him, Clinton did not dare fire Freeh.Freeh and Clinton would not speak for four years, until the bombing of the USS Cole.* * *THE HILL* * *Freeh was an instant darling with Members of Congress, and was accorded great deference and latitude. He would need it. The FBI Freeh walked into had a plethora of problems and investigations of its own to contend with. His earnest demeanor served him well—and he was complemented by his equally earnest Congressional liaison chief, John Collingwood, who was spectacularly effective at putting out the FBI’s fires. Without a drop of arrogance and possessing a deep belief in the mission of the Bureau, Collingwood was also a master at turning every FBI screw-up into an opportunity—for more resources or more law enforcement authorities. He was perhaps the greatest asset the Bureau had when facing its many challenges with Congress. When I worked in his office, I learned from Collingwood a simple formula for dealing with the Hill that most federal agencies refused to learn: Congress can be your best friend if you don’t treat its members and staff like the enemy. Give them (most of) what they ask for, be personable and on a first-name basis with staffers, and give them a heads-up to important stories before they hit the media—even if its means calling them at home at 2 a.m. (which we often did). If trust is built, Congressional staffers will, in turn, give you a heads up to potential problematic or embarrassing issues that could otherwise blindside the Director at an oversight hearing. (The first rule of any good staff work, anywhere: never, ever allow your boss to be surprised by bad news.)Collingwood could wrap his arm around the shoulder of Senator Robert Byrd (the most powerful man in Congress at the time), and Byrd would feel the entire goodwill of the FBI in that gesture—especially after Byrd made it possible for the FBI to move its badly outdated Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) to Clarksburg, West Virginia, Byrd’s home state. The CJIS is the largest division of the FBI responsible for, among other things, its automated fingerprint identification lab and national instant criminal background check system. Byrd was known as “the king of pork” for his ability to shovel millions of dollars to West Virginia. The FBI was smart enough to seize on the opportunity Byrd was offering, thus giving him a stake in the sustainability of the FBI, as well as much needed jobs for West Virginians.And the FBI’s sustainability was not a given. Freeh took charge of an FBI still reeling from its role in the carnage that occurred at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, and Waco, Texas. Both locations had been the site of standoffs between citizens and federal agents, and Waco and Ruby Ridge had become rallying cries for anti-government militias. The overly aggressive actions of federal agents had left 83 Americans dead. The country’s faith in federal law enforcement was at an all-time low. Armed, anti-government militia groups were sprouting up across the nation. At the same time, far removed from Ruby Ridge and Waco, in lower Manhattan an even more insidious threat was about to make itself known. On Feb. 26, 1993, a rental truck carrying 1,400 pounds of ammonium nitrate exploded under the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Six people were killed in an attack right in the heart of America’s financial center.The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan had energized the jihadist movement around the world. After the Soviets pulled out of Afghanistan, mujahideen veterans and fellow-travelers seemed to replace their anti-Soviet fervor with an extreme anti-American ideology. Many began congregating in Islamic centers and mosques across the U.S., including New York and New Jersey. Although American military assistance had helped turn the tide for the mujahideen in their war against the Soviets, they now turned their sights toward the U.S. This was known as “blowback.” But blowback would not be coming just from Afghanistan’s jihadists. It was also developing in America’s heartland.* * *OKLAHOMA CITY* * *The security guard sitting outside the offices of the House Intelligence Committee stopped me and pointed to the television on his desk. On the screen was a horrific scene coming out of Oklahoma City. A building was sheared in half. Under tons of rubble lay an unknown number of bodies. A moon-like crater was obvious in the street where a Ryder rental truck had detonated 4,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate—a much bigger and more powerful bomb than the one used in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.  Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Ralf-Finn Hestoft/CORBIS viaGettyWhen Timothy McVeigh was apprehended, the motive for the carnage became clear. The date of the slaughter was April 19, 1995, exactly two years after the federal standoff at David Koresh’s compound in Waco, Texas. This was McVeigh’s revenge—blowing up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, killing 168 people, including 19 children.The scale of the Oklahoma City attack, the very audacity of it, the very cruelty of it, committed by an American against other Americans, seemed like evil incarnate. Here was an “all-American white boy,” as people said, brutally killing fellow innocent Americans and children right in America’s heartland because of his hatred for federal agencies. If this level of anger existed out there in the country, how and where else might it express itself? Federal law enforcement and the media became obsessed and slightly hysterical over the idea of anti-government militias, even though McVeigh had no formal ties to any of them. Ultimately, however, McVeigh’s actions had an effect opposite to the one he intended. Instead of adding fuel to the anti-government movement, militia members resented the fact that the Feds would now be breathing down their necks. And they certainly were disgusted by the killing of so many innocent children. Some militia members began cooperating with the Feds, alerting them to possible violent extremists in their midsts. The FBI created a Domestic Terrorism Planning Section which found itself handling mostly threats against abortion clinics and crimes committed by radical animal rights groups, like the Animal Liberation Front (ALF). Without reasonable cause, there was little the FBI could do to surveil American citizens traipsing through the woods with legally owned firearms playing weekend warrior. They couldn’t be arrested simply for their views. But after Oklahoma City, the FBI drafted a wish list of expanded authorities to monitor potential terrorists domestically. A coalition of left and right civil libertarians on the Hill thwarted attempts to pass these measures. (Some of the expanded authorities gained new life after 9/11 when they became part of The Patriot Act.)Trump Is First to Use PATRIOT Act to Detain a Man Forever* * *THE SAUDI MIRROR* * *One again the terror spotlight was about to shift. On June 26, 1996, just weeks after the FBI had successfully concluded an 81-day standoff with the anti-government Freeman group in Montana, a truck bomb exploded in a housing complex in Khobar, Saudi Arabia, killing 19 Air Force personnel who were there to enforce the no-fly zone imposed on the regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. Hezbollah in the Hijaz (or “Saudi Hezbollah”) took credit for the attack. Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/GettyThe Saudis knew more than they let on to the FBI about this group, but getting information from the Saudis involved a very delicate diplomatic dance—something FBI agents abhor. The deference paid to the Saudis after Khobar would never be accorded to another country within whose borders American servicemen had been killed. Less than a year before the Khobar bombing, another bomb had exploded in Riyadh, killing five U.S. Defense Department contractors. But before the FBI could interrogate the suspects, the Saudis extracted confessions from them and had them beheaded. Now 19 American airmen had been killed in Saudi Arabia, and the United States was once again saying “pretty please” to Saudi royals to get them to share information. It’s hard to determine whether it was Freeh’s strained relationship with the Clinton administration, or the Clinton administration’s hope for a rapprochement with Iran that led to other roadblocks in the Khobar investigation. Iran was clearly behind Saudi Hezbollah, but it was the Saudis, and the Saudis alone, who held the key to the investigation. With the information they possessed on the attack the year before, Khobar might have been prevented.  To shake information loose from the Saudis, and with less than enthusiastic support from the Clinton Administration, Freeh turned again to his friend, former President George H.W. Bush, who had liberated Kuwait from Saddam’s occupation and guaranteed the security of Saudi Arabia four years earlier. Freeh also weighed in with his own pal, the flamboyant Saudi ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar bin Sultan.  As Lawrence Wright reported in his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Looming Tower, John O’Neill, the chief of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Section, had angered Freeh (who valued his relationship with Bush, Prince Bandar, and his ability to gain access to Saudi Arabia without help from the Clinton White House) by telling him on a flight home from the Kingdom, “Boss, they’re blowing smoke up your ass.” The FBI did finally get access of sorts to the Khobar detainees held by the Saudis—but only by watching behind a two-way mirror as members of the Mabahith, the Saudi secret police, asked the questions. * * *PRECEDENTS* * *To understand how the Bureau developed its response to terrorist attacks you’d have to go back to the 1988 bombing of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, which killed 270 people. Pan Am 103 was the first major terrorist attack against American civilians. A Hezbollah bombing of the US Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon three years earlier had killed 220 Marines and 21 civilians. But Pan Am 103 was a watershed: 190 passengers had been American citizens on their way home for the Christmas holidays; 43 were British, and at least 19 other nationalities were represented among the lost. Among those killed were 35 students from Syracuse University returning to the U.S. after a semester studying in London. The U.N. Commissioner for Namibia, the CEO for Volkswagen America, the CIA’s Beirut Deputy Station Chief and a group of other U.S. Intelligence specialists were on that flight, raising suspicion that it might have been specially targeted. Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Bryn Colton/GettyLegislation was passed giving the FBI extraterritorial jurisdiction over investigations wherever Americans were killed, and the Pan Am 103 investigation would be handled by the Justice Department’s Criminal Division—headed by one Robert S. Mueller—a recent Bush 41 appointee. Mueller had been overseeing the prosecution of Manuel Noriega and mob boss John Gotti, but Pan Am 103 had the greatest emotional impact on him. As recently as 2018, Mueller met once again with family members of that ill-fated flight, including the now-adult children of victims, telling them, “There are those who say that time heals all wounds. But you know that not to be true. At its best, time may dull the deepest wounds; it cannot make them disappear.”  Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Ron Sachs/Consolidated News Pictures/GettyOn Nov. 19, 1991, Acting Attorney General William Barr (yes, the same William Barr who is attorney general today), announced the indictments of two Libyan intelligence operatives for placing the bomb that destroyed Pan Am 103. A trial would not begin until 2000. In 2003, Libya would pay $2.7 billion in compensation to the families of the victims. The man found guilty, Abdelbasit Ali Mohmed al Megrahi, would ultimately die at home in Tripoli in 2017.But in 1988, never having dealt with a terrorist attack on the scale of Pan Am 103, the Bureau received very poor marks for its outreach to the grieving families. So when the Khobar Towers bombings occurred, Freeh would go out of his way to promise justice to the victims’ families—a justice that would, however, have to be finessed to suit Saudi sensibilities.In his 2005 memoir, My FBI, Freeh credits the ultimately successful indictments of the Khobar Tower suspects to his hand-picked choice as prosecutor, James B. Comey. (Yes, that James Comey.) “I will always be grateful for his leadership and pursuit of justice,” Freeh wrote of Comey, who was responsible for a federal grand jury in Alexandria, Virginia returning a 46-count indictment against 14 defendants charged with the bombing of the Khobar Towers.But the Bureau barely had time to catch its breath. Just three weeks after the Khobar Towers attack, the genuine, overwhelming desire by the FBI to convince grieving families they would receive justice would be tested in unimaginable ways. On July 17, 1996, TWA 800 exploded over the Atlantic shortly after taking off from JFK airport, killing 240 people.END OF PART ONETOMORROW: CONSPIRACIES AND DISASTERSRead more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Inspirational: Dr Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka saves gorillas and the community as she breaks new ground and inspires others

 Cache   

Article by Ceri Wheeldon

gladys Kalema-Zikusoka image

Every now and again you meet somebody, who is so inspirational you know that the encounter will leave a lasting impression.   I had the opportunity to meet and interview Dr Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka on her visit to the UK when she was a finalist in the TUSK awards due to her incredible work with gorillas and a guest speaker at Media Hub.

Gladys has dedicated her life to preserving the gorilla population in Uganda. Her 50th birthday is just weeks away.

Always passionate about animals ( Gladys set up a wildlife club at school), she trained to be a vet, becoming Uganda’s first  ever dedicated wildlife vet – an achievement she is incredibly proud of – to do as woman – and before any man had achieved this before her….breaking new ground!

Gladys pioneered the translocation of giraffes from Lake Nakuru National Park in Kenya to Kidepo Valley National Park in Uganda. Although the parks accommodate many animals – it was gorillas ( who share 98% of their DNA with humans) in Gorillas are found in Bwindi Impenetrable National Park that fascinated her.  In 2003, Gladys noticed that the gorillas were starting to lose their hair. Initially it was thought that this was  due to old  age or natural selection – but Gladys saw that it was affecting four generations of gorillas. One infant gorilla died. Gladys  made the association with a parasitic infection experienced by cheetahs – who also experienced hair loss. The source was traced to humans living in the area , who, as Gladys put diplomatically, had ‘unhealthy habits’.

gorillas Gladys Kalema-Zikusoka

Mountain gorillas are an endangered species – at the time of the outbreak there were only 650 living in the wild. In 2003 Gladys co-founded   Conservation Through Public Health (CTPH), recognising that in order to save the gorillas , they needed to support the local community/ Healthcare and sanitation and hygiene were improved.  The gorillas were coming into contact with humans when they foraged in gardens for bananas.  Through education they were able to help improve the lives of the human community – and  reduce the threat of disease to the gorilla community. They also had to find a way to have humans and gorillas better co-exist and enable the living conditions of the community to improve.

The gorilla population has grown to 1000

Gorilla tourism was one way- another was in setting up a scheme to buy the locals coffee beans at a fixed and above average price – the sale of the resulting ‘gorilla coffee’ helps to fund the centre. Knowing that their coffee ventures are well supported – the community is more forgiving of banana theft by gorillas!

The model has worked well – and today there are 1000 mountain gorillas living in the park.

The CTPH model is one that is seen as best practice, and is being duplicated by other countries.

When Gladys talks of her achievements she does so with passion and humour. When recalling the time she and a park ranger were following an elephant ,  due to concerns about its limp, it turned to charge them. As Gladys said ‘the limp didn’t seem to bother him when it came running after us’!!

But what next for Gladys? As she approaches her 50th birthday having achieved so much, she is still passionate about doing more.  Apart from writing a book, Gladys wants to encourage young women to study science and make a difference with the confidence of knowing that they can achieve anything they put their minds to.

Gladys herself had a great role model in her own mother – who was the first woman in Uganda’s parliament. Gladys was encouraged to set her own goals and achieve her own dreams – even if those dreams had not been achieved before. She now wants to encourage others to do the same.

An inspirational woman , and an inspirational role model.

 

I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to meet her.

To find out more about Gladys’ work, and ways to support it, visit ctph.org and watch out for Gorilla Conservation Coffee which will hopefully be on sale in the UK soon.

Akron Church Increases Refugee Awareness

 Cache   
Terri Saelee, North American Division coordinator for Adventist Refugee and Immigrant Ministries, shares a "Loss Simulation' exercise with the Junior/Earliteen class.

Story by Heidi Shoemaker

For several years, Ohio Conference's Akron First church has actively served refugees from Burma, Thailand, Rwanda, the Congo, Uganda and Kenya who have settled in the community.

Members help these families obtain household furnishings, assist them in filling out forms and provide driving lessons. Many refugees have become a part of church life, enrolling their children in the Mayfair Christian School in Uniontown and participating in Adventurer and Pathfinder programs. The congregation hosts social gatherings, baby and wedding showers and conducts hospital visits and baptisms. This year they financially supported two refugee students attending Great Lakes Adventist Academy (Mich.).

Bill Levin, pastor of Akron First, shared details about this growing ministry with Terri Saelee, North American Division coordinator for Adventist Refugee and Immigrant Ministries. “She suggested a ‘Refugee Awareness Sabbath’ to help more of our church family become aware of the unique challenges and needs refugees have as they transition into a new land and culture. Utilizing her idea, we extended an invitation for our refugee brothers and sisters to help us get to know them and their plight a little better,” Levin says.

During Sabbath School, refugee children told young people what life was like in a refugee camp and the changes that took place upon arriving to the U.S. Saelee went to the Junior/Earliteen class and shared a “Loss Simulation” exercise to help young people wrestle with the idea of the very real loss most refugees face—the loss of family members, possessions and homes.

“[Saelee] had my students pretend that war broke out and bombs were falling. She gave them three minutes to write down four people they would take with them, four documents they would take, four favorite things and four favorite places [each on a separate piece of paper],” shares Sabbath School teacher Susan Kirschbaum. “After the three minutes, she asked them to delete one item from each category, and while they were doing that, she quietly asked me to go around and randomly remove a few papers from each kid’s stacks.”

She continues, “They were really upset—‘You took my mom!’ or ‘You took my grandma!’” and added, “I was the ‘government,’ and though they had done their best at making decisions with what they had, they had now lost control. That’s what a refugee’s life is like. It was an eye opener for everyone.”

Worship was filled with refugee friends sharing music from their native homeland, while three adults gave personal testimonies about families being detained in refugee camps. As they shared stories, the congregation was visibly moved and heartbroken for them and their struggle.

After the service, church members completed commitment sheets addressing specific things each person could do to assist and bless refugees in the community.

IFLA at IGF 2019

 Cache   

Between 25 and 29 November 2019, IFLA participated in the 14th annual Internet Governance Forum meeting in Berlin. The key messages IFLA emphasised were the importance of policy support for public access in libraries, the role of libraries in enabling meaningful connectivity, and in generating meaningful internet content through digitisation efforts.

The Internet Governance Forum is a multistakeholder space for debate and cooperation towards an open, secure and free internet. The theme of the 2019 meeting was “One world. One net. One vision”, and over 5000 participants from public, private and civil society sectors participated.

From public internet access…

Within the framework of the Dynamic Coalition on Public Access in Libraries (DC-PAL), IFLA organised an open session alongside Electronic Information for Libraries (EIFL). The session examined how public access in libraries contributes to broadband and connectivity policy success, and how governments integrate libraries into planning.

The speakers highlighted the role of libraries in access, development, and affordability strategies, and presented a draft report which compares how libraries are included in broadband plans and policies in different countries.

Presentations and interventions by speakers from Uganda, Kenya, Germany and Ghana illustrated how including libraries in such policies works in practice, and the impact it delivers. In several cases, Universal Service Funds were highlighted as an effective mechanism to support public access and library connectivity.

… to other areas important for libraries

IFLA also joined the panel of a session organised by the Best Practice Forum on Local Content. IFLA shared how library heritage digitisation initiatives can help create online content that is most meaningful and/or relevant for a given community.

IFLA drew special attention to digitisation efforts carried out by libraries jointly with indigenous communities, and digital preservation of heritage materials at risk.

Other issues and questions relevant for libraries were discussed throughout the week, for example:

  • Meaningful connectivity and meaningful access: many participants agreed that access to connectivity services and infrastructure alone do not bring the full benefits of connectivity. We need rather to think about making meaningful connectivity and access meaningful, for which can entail different elements: from affordability, appropriate access devices, and sufficient speed (e.g. as included in A4AI’s Meaningful Connectivity Standard) to digital skills, literacy, and availability of online content and services relevant for the user (which libraries offer).
  • The issues of reconciling freedom of expression and intellectual freedom online with government and private companies’ efforts to address such concerns as disinformation or harmful content.
  • On several occasions, it was pointed out that traditional connectivity models may not be effective in bringing the remaining billions online as fast as possible. Community networks were proposed as an alternative solution in several sessions – libraries can learn more about this connectivity model and see what roles they can play in community network projects.

You can watch a recording of the DC-PAL session and read the draft report. If you would like to get involved in IGF events and initiatives, the IFLA Get Into IGF Guide can offer an explanation of how the Forum works and how you can take part.

Sr. Catherine Mulligan, DC, is a native of Ireland who has coordinated the development of Daughters of Charity (DC) projects in Kenya over the past 12 years. One such project is Project DREAM, a collaboration between the Daughters and the Community of Sant’Egidio. DREAM stands for “Drug Resource Enhancement against AIDS and Malnutrition.” A vast majority of Kenyans live at a subsistence level, including a significant number of refugees. Before opening the DREAM Center on the Daughters of Charity property in Nairobi, the home-based care team conducted considerable research and interviews to establish the groundwork. The Sisters’ alliance with those who are poor, combined with a highly motivated and trained Kenyan staff and the local Ministry of Health providers have contributed to the DREAM program’s remarkable results. For over a decade, DREAM has been applying in sub-Saharan Africa, with extraordinary success, state-of-the-art standards of treatment for HIV/AIDS that are the norm for HIV/AIDS patients in the developed world. DREAM provides testing and integrated, comprehensive care to those who are HIV-positive, with a key focus on the treatment of pregnant women and their children to prevent mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of HIV, with very high success.

Kenya woos oil importers in bid to reclaim business lost to Tanzania

 Cache   

Kenya hopes to regain its petroleum export market after cutting pipeline tariffs by 50 per cent, a development that sets up stiff competition with Tanzania. Nairobi, which had lost about 30 per cent of its petroleum export market to Dar es Salaam, is also stepping up its crackdown on fuel adulteration and smuggling, a growing menace costing the government $340 million annually in lost taxes. Last week, the Kenya Revenue Authority in collaboration with a multi-agency team formed to strengthen co-ordination among different agencies in curbing illicit trade intercepted a consignment of 7,000 litres of diesel fuel smuggled from Ethiopia. This comes at a time when the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development estimates that the East African Community loses over $500 million in tax revenue annually due to counterfeiting. “KRA has enhanced vigilance at the country’s border points as part of key measures geared towards stepping up the fight against illicit trade and counterfeits,” Kevin Safari, KRA commissioner for Customs and Border Control said in a statement. Kenya hopes the intensified surveillance and crackdown on fuel adulteration and dumping will help the country recapture the petroleum export market from Tanzania. TARIFFS More critically, Nairobi hopes the lower pipeline tariffs will encourage petroleum and petroleum products importers to use the Mombasa port for products destined for neighbouring landlocked countries like Uganda, Rwanda, Burundi, South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo. In the new tariffs imposed by the Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority, oil marketing companies will pay $30.89 per 1,000 litres down from $60 to transport fuel using Kenya Pipeline Company facilities. The rates, which will apply for the next three years, will further be lowered to $30.65 in 2020 and $29.07 in 2021. “Kenya had lost about 30 per cent of its petroleum export market to Tanzania mainly due to the   high tariffs charged for pipeline transport,” EPRA director general Pavel Oimeke told The EastAfrican. He added that in the past 10 days after the implementation of the revised pipeline tariffs, the export volumes have doubled, a trend that is ultimately expected to regain the lost market share. KPC, which was pushing for an upward review of the tariffs that include the domestic market, has however protested the reduction ostensibly on the basis that it will have a negative impact on its bottom line. The company wanted an increase to raise funds to service massive debts procured to finance infrastructure investments including the new Mombasa-Nairobi pipeline constructed at a cost of $473.4 million, and the four new oil storage tanks in Nairobi that cost $50 million. The company has also invested $16 million in the Kisumu Oil Jetty. Mr Oimeke said that KPC has submitted a protest letter to EPRA, which does not amount to an appeal against the new tariffs. “They are yet to submit a detailed appeal to us. What we received is a protest letter. We have written to them and advised on how to structure the appeal accompanied with justification for each item. We will objectively review once we receive the detailed appeal,” he added. According to the Economic Survey 2019, Kenya’s volume of petroleum exports declined to 739.800 tonnes in 2018, from 842.400 tonnes in 2017. Although the value of total exports rose by 7.5 per cent to $374.2 million in 2018 on account of a growth in the value of re-exports, the value of domestic exports of petroleum products dropped by 15.2 per cent to $40.5 million in 2018. DOMESTIC EXPORTS In the first half of 2019, the value of domestic exports stood at $11.5 million from $20.2 million in same period in 2018, a 43 per cent decline. While the volumes of transit petroleum products imports in Kenya have been on the decline, Tanzania has recorded a significant rise in imports entering through the ports of Dar es Salaam and Tanga. Data by the Energy and Water Utilities Regulatory Authority of Tanzania shows that in the financial year ending June 2018, the volume of transit products stood at 2.6 million litres compared with two million litres for 2017, a 35 per cent rise. Ewura, in its 2018 annual report reckons that importers prefer Tanzania due to the authority’s efforts in ensuring compliance to laws and standards in the downstream petroleum subsector. According to Mr Oimeke, the level of petroleum fuels adulteration in Kenya has significantly reduced since September 2018 when the anti-adulteration of $0.173 per litre was introduced for Kerosene. In addition, dumping has significantly reduced due to improvements implemented to the petroleum fuels marking and monitoring programme since January this year. The improvements include increased frequency of monitoring and stiffer penalties for culprits, which has seen compliance levels for both dumping and adulteration hit 100 per cent as at the end of last quarter. “EPRA has increased surveillance and also enlisted the help of the National Police Service to ensure that the problem is dealt with,” he said. He added that EPRA is working with regional energy regulators under the auspices of the Energy Regulators Association of East Africa to improve compliance across the region. ***   TARIFFS The Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority has allowed oil marketing companies to pay $30.89 per 1,000 litres in tariffs, down from $60 to transport fuel using Kenya Pipeline Company facilities. The rates will apply for the next three years and will be further lowered to $30.65 in 2020 and $29.07 in 2021. Oil marketers pay on average $80 to ferry oil from Dar es Salaam on trucks but pay $60 tariff on pipeline to Kisumu and a further $35 to truck the product to Uganda, Rwanda and northern Tanzania buying countries. Tanzania has also stepped up competition by increasing efficiencies at the port. According to the Economic Survey 2019, Kenya’s volume of petroleum exports declined to 739.800 tonnes in 2018, from 842.400 tonnes in 2017. But KPC has protested the cut in tariffs.

Bashir now faces death over 1989 coup that brought him to power

 Cache   

Deposed Sudan President Omar al Bashir, already on trial over economic crimes during his 30-year reign, faces a possible death sentence over his role in the 1989 coup that removed the democratically elected government of Sadid al-Mahdi from power. During a busy week where he has tried to build confidence in the judiciary following the ouster of Mr al-Bashir in April, Attorney General Taj AlSir AlHeabr said he had formed a committee to investigate the June 30, 1989 military putsch which was led by Mr al-Bashir. The committee’s findings will form the basis of prosecution of the Islamic Movement’s leaders, including civilians and military personnel, for undermining the constitutional system. The charge has no limitation for time lapses and is punishable by death or life imprisonment. “The committee has the competencies of public prosecution of military coup perpetrators,” Mr AlHeabr said. It is empowered to call any person to help with investigations and will report back in three months. The attorney general said he hoped the findings would lay down a marker against forceful take-over of government that has characterised Sudan’s politics. The first coup happened in 1958 just two years after independence when Ibrahim Abboud usurped power. He was dethroned by Jaafar Numeiri in 1969 who later suffered the same fate at the hands of Mr al-Bashir. Mr al-Bashir soon cultivated legitimacy with the international community which did not frown at coups then as it does now until he got isolated over his support of terrorist organisations, hostility to a number of neighbouring governments and his ideological leanings to Sharia law. Sudan Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok is now on a diplomatic offensive to have Sudan removed from the US state sponsors of terrorism blacklist, which has limited its ability to attract investments or secure external financing for development in the face of a $55 billion debt stockpile. Last week, the Sudan Council of Ministers resolved to annul the Public Order Act under which women were severely punished for misconducts as provided under Sheria law. The annulment now awaits the endorsement of ruling Transition Sovereign Council. The committee will later write a criminal report against the masterminds and perpetrators on the 1989 coup. Besides Mr al-Bashir, Ali Osman Mohamed Taha, Nafie Ali Nafie, Ali Al-Haj Mohammed, Ibrahim Al-Sanusi and leaders of the National Islamic Front party led by Hassan Al-Turabi also face charges of undermining the constitutional order. Legal experts said the turn of events would represent poetic justice for Mr al-Bashir who during his reign exploited provisions on crimes against the state to intimidate and prosecute political opponents as well as civilians. Article 50 of the Sudanese Criminal Code of 1991 provides that conviction for actions intended to undermine the constitutional order of the country or to jeopardising its independence or unity attracts punishment by death, life imprisonment and confiscation of property. PREVENT FUTURE COUPS The opening of the 1989 coup has attracted mixed reactions with supporters, saying the now independent judiciary should issue deterrents to prevent future coups. Soon after deposing Mr al-Bashir, military generals led by Abdul Fattah al-Burhan, repeated on a number of occasions that they had foiled coups schemed by uniformed personnel and former elements of Mr al-Bashir’s regime. Critics, however, say the trial over the coup would not be seen as anything more than the new rulers sacrificing their former leader to convince the masses of their reform credentials. Mr al-Bashir and scores of close allies are already in custody on trials ranging from money laundering to corruption. “There are more pressing regime symbols that the transitional authority in Sudan should punish such as corruption, the killing of demonstrators, as well as war crimes in the areas of armed conflict, whether in Darfur or South Kordofan,” said Tariq Osman, a political analyst. Mr al-Bashir has already been indicted by the International Criminal Court over atrocities in the Darfur region. The Hague Court, however, could not secure his arrest while he was in power as countries like Jordan, Kenya and South Africa which he visited waved away obligations to arrest him with claims of his diplomatic immunity. The sovereign council has blown hot and cold on handing him over to The Hague for trial, with its military wing reluctant and the civil wing keen to honour the international obligation. However, Sudan is presently not a signatory to the ICC treaty. The military wing of the Sovereign council is also not sitting pretty after AlHeabr vowed on Wednesday to try killers of protesters at a sit-in outside the military headquarters on June 3. Officially, 63 people were killed when uniformed men fired at protests but independent sources said up to 130 people may have died. Fingers at the time pointed at the paramilitary Rapid Support Forces headed by the deputy leader of the Sovereign Council Mohamed Hamdan “Hemedti” Dagalo for the deaths. The then transitional military council denied the claims saying some protesters were armed. “I will try the killers even if it was Al-Burhan himself as no one is above the law,” AlHeabr was quoted assuring families of victims of the attack by the Middle East Monitor on Thursday. Hamdok ordered an investigation into the deaths in September. *** SUDAN PASSES LAW TO DISSOLVE NCP Sudan has approved the dissolution of the Islamist National Congress Party, which run roughshod over its rivals and citizens during President Omar al-Bashir’s 30-year rule. In a determination to wipe emblems of the regime off the face of the earth similar to when the US deposed Saddam Hussein in Iraq, the ruling Sovereign Council, also outlawed the Public Order Act through which the Sudanese, especially women, were subject to degrading punishments if they did not observe a strict code of conduct akin to Sharia law. Under the resolutions reached on Thursday night, Justice Minister Nasrudin Abdel Bari said the NCP will be dissolved and its leaders banned from political activities for 10 years. Its assets will also be seized by the state as they were amassed through its affiliation to...

Kenya retains seat at global maritime council

 Cache   

Kenya has retained its seat on the Council of the International Maritime Organisation, giving it a chance to continue playing a role in global shipping rule making. The vote on Friday evening in London saw 174 member states take part with Kenya retaining its seat under Category C of 20 countries usually reserved for those with special interest in maritime transport or navigation. In Africa, Morocco, South Africa, Liberia and Egypt are the other members of Category C. Kenya holds special interests in maritime transport and navigation as the coastal, port and flag state “whose strategic location along the Eastern Africa coast makes it a most important cog in the wheel of steering global shipping,” according to Maritime Principal Secretary Nancy Karigithu who led the delegation to the polls. “Our re-election to Council will ensure continued representation of a major geographic area in Eastern Africa and the Great Lakes region consisting of the countries Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda,” she said on Saturday. Kenya’s High Commissioner to the UK Manoah Esipisu, also the Permanent Representative to the IMO, said he was delighted by the vote result. “It confirms the world’s confidence on our leadership around maritime transport and safety, and our commitment to the Blue Economy,” he said. Kenya joined the IMO in 1973 and was first elected to the Council under Category “C” in 2001 and has been re-elected in subsequent elections to date, the last being in 2017. It is one seat at a UN agency where Kenya has dominated lately. But this election saw heavy lobbying. Some marine and shipping giants like Sweden, Nigeria and Liberia lost their bids. Qatar, a wealthy oil producer as well as Saudi Arabia also lost out. The IMO is the specialised agency that determines rules on shipping safety and environment. With more than 80 per cent of global trade running on seas, the IMO’s regulatory framework determines how shipping lines and ports operate. By The Eastafrica

Abiy Ahmed fanning instability in Somalia, S. Sudan: UN reports

 Cache   

Just months after winning the Nobel Peace Prize, Ethiopia’s reformist Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed is fighting accusations of his interfering with the affairs of neighbouring countries. In November, two United Nations reports accused him of being lukewarm in South Sudan peace process and fuelling fires of instability in Somalia; two of the countries he has been closely involved in as the chairman of the Intergovernmental Authority on Development. In South Sudan, where Igad midwifed a revitalised peace agreement in September last year, Abiy’s government, Uganda and Kenya were accused of being inconsistent in ensuring the deal is implemented. PEACE PROCESS “Over the past year, the Igad and member states neighbouring South Sudan – specifically Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan and Uganda – have not demonstrated full and consistent engagement in the peace process,” a UN report said. “The government of Salva Kiir, in particular, has benefited from the inconsistent approach of the region.” Ethiopia, which chaired Igad until last Friday, and Kenya have only given piecemeal support, with occasional visits or bilateral meetings, the report by the UN Panel of Experts says. Both countries refute the charge, separately saying that they have in fact borne the brunt of violence in South Sudan by hosting hundreds of thousands of refugees and losing business. On Friday, Ethiopia’s ambassador to Kenya Meles Alem told the Nation that the allegations do not hold water. “One of the pillars of Ethiopian foreign policy is non-interference in the internal affairs of other countries. That is our track record,” Meles said. “As a good neighbour, we have only played constructive roles.” REFUGEES Kenya on the other hand accused the UN team of passing the buck, arguing that Kenya suffers whenever South Sudan is at war as its businesses close and it hosts refugees. This past week, a number of Somali politicians have been vocal, accusing Ethiopia of helping the federal government interfere with the states. The Forum for National Parties (FNP), the coalition which brings together six parties, wrote to Abiy telling him to stop “the unfortunate renewal of Ethiopia’s involvement in Somalia’s domestic politics”. The politicians said Ethiopia is deploying non-Amisom forces in the country, referring to the African Union Mission in Somalia. “The Ethiopian National Defence Forces have been repeatedly involved in illegal activities whose outcome could at best undermine the fragile state-building and nascent democratic processes in Somalia,” they wrote on Friday. The FNP letter came on the backdrop of complaints by the Jubbaland administration following two incidents in Gedo. Jubbaland, whose president is Ahmed Madobe, said Ethiopian soldiers forced administrators in Buala Hawa, Dolow and Luuq towns in Gedo region to renounce their allegiance to Jubbaland. In another incident, Jubbaland Vice President Mohamud Sayyid reportedly sought refuge in Mandera, Kenya after escaping a kidnapping attempt by Ethiopian forces. MALTREATMENT Pressed, Jubbaland and FNP did not provide proof of the maltreatment. Meles told the Sunday Nation that his country’s role in South Sudan and Somalia have been limited to the peace process. He said Ethiopia deploys peacekeepers who follow available regulations. “We have played a constructive role under the auspices of Igad to bring peace and stability in the two countries. In fact, Ethiopia hosts a million refugees and we treat them as our citizens,” the diplomat said. Accusations against Ethiopia began in Somalia last year. A UN Panel of Experts on Somalia in its 2019 report said Ethiopia had interfered with the vote in South West where Mukhtar Rubow – a former al-Shabaab deputy head – was barred from running. When South West residents protested, forces loyal to Rubow fought Ethiopian soldiers, resulting in several deaths, the UN experts said. “The role of the Ethiopian forces in the arrest of Rubow has the potential to inflame anti-Ethiopian sentiment among communities in the region, who were previously known to share information on al-Shabaab movements with them,” the panel said. Ethiopia, at the time dismissed the report as a fabrication. As Somalia’s Galmudug state gears for its elections, politicians accuse Addis Ababa of playing a role again. By The Eastafrica

Uganda and Rwanda lead East Africa in switch to electric cars

 Cache   

Uganda and Rwanda are racing ahead of their East African neighbours in the global switch to electric motoring, even as infrastructure shortcomings limit investments in the emerging sector. Both Kampala and Kigali have unveiled electric vehicle assembly plants in the past two months, blazing the regional trail with Kenya and Tanzania only making baby steps toward embracing the new technology. Uganda’s state-owned Kiira Motors Corporation has so far shown the biggest ambition in the region by building two battery-powered cars and a solar electric bus. The electric bus, called the Kayoola Electric Vehicle Series (EVS), has been built using Kiira Motors home-grown green mobility technologies while partnering with Chinese Equipment Manufacturer, Motor Co. Ltd. The buses can cover a distance of 300km under a single charge and have a capacity of 90 passengers (49 sitting and 41 standing), compared with the diesel engine ones which have a capacity of 65 passengers. Last year Uganda committed nearly Ush24 billion ($6.4 million) to put the first fully home-made car on the road. The amount is part of a planned Ush145 billion ($39 million) spending over four years, 2018 to 2022. In Rwanda, German automaker Volkswagen started assembling electric vehicles in Kigali in October this year, with the German power equipment firm Siemens planning to set up 15 charging stations in the Rwandan capital. This comes after a local Rwandan firm, Ampersand, started selling electric bikes powered by batteries that can last for about 75km of riding. East Africa’s uptake of electrical vehicles however remains extremely low compared to global leaders, according to Global EV Outlook report 2019. Lack of investment in charging infrastructure and absence of fiscal incentives such as subsidies and rebates on vehicle acquisition taxes, and lower toll or parking fees are to blame, the report launched by the International Energy Agency states. Measure It notes that scaling up of EV adoption in the region requires measures that provide incentives to increase the availability of vehicles with zero and low tailpipe emissions including massive investments in charging infrastructure installations on highways and in buildings. “We must address the issues of infrastructure and energy because these vehicles need energy and space for charging. The government should also consider tax incentives to attract investors and even buyers of electric vehicles,” said the Group chief executive of Nairobi-based motor dealer Simba Colt, Dinesh Kotecha, in an interview. In Kenya, Finnish firm EkoRent introduced a fully electric taxi dubbed Nopia Ride last year. The firm has installed five charging stations in three locations, including the Two Rivers Mall, the Hub Karen and Thika Road Mall. The Tanzanian government last year approved an initial roll-out of electric Safari vehicle at its flagship national park of Serengeti in an effort to reduce gas emissions. The Mount Kilimanjaro Safari Club became the first tour company in Tanzania to release a 100 per cent electric Safari cars in the region. Tanzania is reportedly seeking to power its electric cell driven vehicles through mass production of graphite minerals, with plans to build four of such factories in the country. In Ethiopia plans are underway for a local electric vehicle assembler—Tom Renewable Electric Bike Assembly & Sales—to start production in the country. The electric vehicles can go up to 40Km/h and are charged using standard 220v electric outlets. The vehicles take between four and six hours to get fully charged and can travel up to 60km on one charge. It is estimated that Ethiopia spends $3 billion annually to import fuel, pushing its annual spending up by 10 per cent. Japanese Firm Mitsui and Co. The company in April made a successful trial for a three-wheels electric car in Addis Ababa. The electric car called ‘E-trike ‘has five dedicated batteries, each with a capacity to go 80 kms with a single charge. The company has plans to establish an assembly plant in Ethiopia. Two decades ago, the world decided it was going electric and in 2009 a multi-governmental policy forum was established under the Clean Energy Ministerial to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles worldwide. The CEM consists of 24 nations and the EU, who together account for 90 per cent of all investment in clean energy in the world and 75 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions. So far 13 countries are participating in the EVI including Canada, Chile, China, Finland, France, Germany, India, Japan, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and UK. Electric mobility is expanding at a rapid pace globally, with the total electric car fleet exceeding 5.1 million last year, compared with 3.1 million in 2017. China remains the world’s largest electric car market, followed by Europe and the US, while Norway is the global leader in terms of electric car market share. By  The Eastafrica

Stop tribalism, Kenya told as unity talks open

 Cache   

Kenya’s obsession with ethnic-based politics is a major concern to neighbouring countries, even as Nairobi opened a new chapter of national unity by launching the Building Bridges Initiative report on November 27. Tanzania’s Foreign Affairs Minister Prof Palamagamba Kabudi did not mince his words when he addressed Kenya’s top leadership and dignitaries at the launch held at the Bomas of Kenya in Nairobi, saying that ethnicity had overshadowed the country’s impressive manpower and potential. “We in Tanzania wonder why a country with such great talent and innovative minds has allowed itself to be ruled by the scourge of ethnicity,” he said. Prof Kabudi lauded Kenya as the economic engine of East Africa and said that Tanzania would not interfere in the internal affairs of the country. “But when we see you doing things that are perilous to the prosperity of the region, we will speak out loudly. Stop that mess,” he implored. He gave the example of Tanzania which has more ethnic groups than Kenya—seven of which are found across the border in both countries—yet the does not suffer from the politics of ethnicity because of the strong nationalistic foundation laid by the founding father Mwalimu Julius Nyerere. “Come out of your tribal cocoons and embrace the wider Kenya and wider East Africa,” he said, adding that political instability in Kenya affects the entire region, especially the landlocked countries. Consecutive ethnic-based violence Prof Kabudi’s address was to serve as a case study for Kenya that has suffered consecutive ethnic-based violence in every election cycle from 1992 when multiparty politics was reintroduced. These concerns led President Uhuru Kenyatta and opposition leader Raila Odinga to forge an unexpected alliance on March 9, 2018 under the Building Bridges Initiative, (BBI) commonly known as the “handshake.” BBI is expected to unite the country and lead it away from politics of confrontation and succession battles. It also seeks to address nine key issues that President Kenyatta and Mr Odinga identified as the major challenges that have inflicted the country since Independence in 1963. These are ethnic division; lack of inclusivity in politics and the economy, violence during election, national security, endemic corruption, lack of national ethos, lack of national responsibility and civic rights. A 14-member task force collected views across the country over these issues and also sought to find out how Kenya can have a shared prosperity and enhance devolution that came into effect in 2013 following the enactment of a new constitution passed in 2010. Key among the proposals are that the country will have a hybrid of both presidential and parliamentary systems, with a non-executive prime minister appointed by the president after being elected by parliament from the party with the majority. The expanded executive will take care of the inclusivity and avoid the winner-takes-all formulae that breed intense ethnic competition. The role of a prime minister will be crucial in strengthening inclusivity and accountability. It will ensure that the work of government is better overseen by parliament, while also ensuring greater inclusivity from political parties with strength in the National Assembly. Another major proposal is that Cabinet will be appointed from a mixture of members of parliament and technocrats from outside parliament who will become ex-officio members and answer questions in parliament, but with no voting rights By The Eastafrica

Lissu now ready to take on Magufuli

 Cache   

Tanzanian opposition leader, Tundu Lissu, has declared that he is ready to contest for the presidency in 2020 if his Chadema party gives him the ticket. Mr Lissu, who has been abroad for two years for treatment after he was shot by unknown people, says that despite the many restrictions by government, such as the ban on public rallies, persecution and arrests, support for opposition is growing and they might just surprise the world if the election was to be free and fair. Speaking in an interview on Kenya’s KTN television station, the former Singida East MP—whose seat was declared vacant on June 29 due to absentia —said that he has fully recovered but cannot return to Tanzania because his security is not assured. “I was supposed to die from the shooting or from lack of treatment. The agents responsible are now warning through the Internet that this time they will not miss,” he said. He is concerned that the opposition is under siege, and that members are being hunted down, arrested, jailed and bought and that the president is using unconstitutional means to finish the opposition He said the opposition has never said no to dialogue, but the environment does not promote dialogue. Mr Lissu, said that even during Jakaya Kikwete’s presidency, the opposition operated under difficult circumstances, but the former president occasionally met the opposition for discussions. “Now, we have a president who announced publicly that by the 2020 elections, there will be no opposition. We believe that the banning of opposition activities, arrests and my shooting are part of that promise,” said Mr Lissu. On being stripped of his parliamentary seat, he said; “The law says that a seat can be declared vacant if the holder misses three consecutive sittings. The Speaker says I did not officially notify parliament but everybody knows that I was shot 16 times and I was unconscious for one week. How can you notify the speaker in such circumstances?” Mr Lissu, who was first flown to Nairobi and later to Belgium for further treatment, says that his Chadema Party went to court to contest the declaration and it was rejected but they have appealed again. “If I keep quiet, it will create a precedent where the Speaker can remove any MP he doesn’t like. This trend cannot be allowed to continue,” he said. On the recent civic election, Mr Lissu said that Chadema and other opposition parties had prepared to take part but 3,000 candidates, amounting to 96 per cent were disqualified. “It was difficult to participate in the election with only four per cent of our candidates. We had decided to demonstrate to the world that that was not an election and we have never seen such repression in the history of Tanzania, even during the colonial time,” he said. He continued; “When a party that has been in power for nearly 60 years is afraid of civic elections, it is an indication of what will happen in 2020 and Tanzania that has been the most peaceful in the region could erupt.” By The Eastafrica

Juba angered by US’ lack of confidence in Kiir and recall of envoy to South Sudan

 Cache   

The US government’s withdrawal of its envoy to South Sudan has stoked anger among President Salva Kiir’s close associates, even as the Opposition appeared to back Washington’s hard-line stance on Juba. The US on Monday recalled its ambassador in South Sudan, Thomas Hushek, sending a strong signal that it did not support the decision to allow more time for the country’s political protagonists to form a unity government. But as Juba screamed victim this week, the Opposition said it did not feel the negotiations with President Kiir’s government were progressing at the right pace even as the clock ticks towards the 100 days deadline. Ceasefire violation Details also emerged that the government in Juba was recruiting new soldiers in what could have violated ceasefire agreements and potentially damaged the possibility of merging forces into one national army, under the planned unity government. Washington said it was withdrawing Mr Hushek as Ambassador to South Sudan for “consultations,” having become frustrated with the failure by President Salva Kiir and former VP and Opposition Leader Riek Machar, to start an administration. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had torn into President Kiir, questioning his political will and said they were calling back their envoy to “re-evaluate” their relationship with Juba. “We will work with the region to support efforts to achieve peace and a successful political transition in South Sudan,” Mr Pompeo said. Perpetual deadlines But the decision by the US, one of the group of donor countries behind mediation efforts known as the Troika to recall their envoy was seen in Juba as a bid to force the hand of Mr Kiir to give in to some unspecified demands. Mr Kiir’s diplomats were this week fighting back claims that he is a stumbling block to formation of a transitional government. Instead, they asserted that their principal was being ‘victimised’ for compromising. “The President has never asked for an extension of the pre-transitional period,” argued South Sudan’s Foreign Affairs Minister Awut Deng Achuil, referring to the time allowed to form the transitional government of national unity. Kiir, Machar and several other parties signed the Revitalised Agreement on the Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan (R-ARCSS) on September 12, 2018. They were to form the unity government six months later. They failed and extended by another six months. As the deadline approached on November 12, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni brokered another deal to extend the period by another 100 days. “His excellency welcomed the decision of the regional guarantors for extension as a compromise measure to avert a return to conflict and maintain peace in the country,” Ms Achuil said this week. Every other party, including mediators at the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (Igad) endorsed the extension with a caveat: That the parties must now list down specific actions to ensure the 100 days lead to a new unity government. Dr Machar’s group, the Sudan People’s Liberation Movement-In Opposition, in an interview said Juba had not given specific guarantees to the international community on implementation of the agreement required for formation of a unity government even after signing of the deal to extend the pre-transition by 100 days. Dwarfed by giant “Washington is unhappy with the way things are happening in South Sudan,” said James Oryema, Dr Machar’s Spokesman in Kenya. “There was consensus in Entebbe but Washington is worried we cannot work together (with President Kiir) as things stand.” With the US decision, Juba says it means Washington is not keen on a peace deal but paves the way for external aggressors. “The US has never been a friend of South Sudan. There are big politics in play and South Sudan is just a victim of a giant,” said James P. Morgan, South Sudan’s envoy to the African Union, without elaborating. “Two guarantors (Uganda and Sudan) came up with a middle ground which was to provide 100 days. But the US was not happy with that. “The US acted dubiously by supporting the formation of a revitalised transitional government and yet it also supported the position of Dr Machar,” he added, referring to the initial demand by the opposition groups for six more months. A UN Panel of Experts on South Sudan this week charged that Juba had recruited about 10,000 new soldiers during the transitional period, despite the R-ARCSS requiring that certain measures be taken to retrain, canton and merge forces first. The forces, the Panel claimed, were being hosted in the former Warrap State. The US, which had warned before of re-evaluating relations with South Sudan, has also imposed sanctions on certain South Sudanese warlords, seen to have violated ceasefire agreements. Some of the individuals were still working for President Kiir and had even travelled abroad on assignments despite various US and UN sanctions. New rebel group In a UN report, South Sudan Army chief Gabriel Jok Riak, who was sanctioned and banned from travelling abroad, had in fact attended a military sports event in Nairobi in August, without a formal request for exemption. Another former military chief, Gen Paul Malong, who has been banned from travelling, was also spotted in Johannesburg in July, travelling on a Ugandan diplomatic passport. He travelled back to Nairobi using the same document, according to the Panel. Gen Malong, once Kiir’s Chief of General Staff, formed his own rebel group and refused to sign the peace deal. The US warned that it will impose more sanctions on others like Gen Malong and another rebel called Thomas Cirillo, who also runs a different group that refuses to join the peace deal. But South Sudan’s neighbours came in for criticism for aiding the flop in sanctions. The Panel says in its interim report that there is lack of political will among key protagonists to implement the peace agreement known as R-ARCSS. Dangerous stalemate But they charge that President Kiir is specifically profiting from the region’s reluctance to enforce sanctions imposed on warlords. Kenya, Uganda and Ethiopia are particularly seen as partial players in the conflict. “The selective...

Kenya takes up Nile Basin leadership

 Cache   

Kenya is now chair of the Nile Council of Ministers and will be led by Water Cabinet Secretary Simon Chelugui. Mr Chelugui takes over from Burundi’s Minister of Environment, Agriculture and Livestock, Dr Deo-Guide Rurema. The handover was done at a pre-conference in Nairobi on Wednesday, where the Council outlined an ambitious plan for the Nile Basin Initiative (NBI). Regional system On Friday, the Council of Ministers led by NBI Secretariat under the executive director of NBI Prof Seifeldin Hamad Abdalla launched the $5.5 million Nile Basin Regional Hydro-Met System that will enable NBI member states to share reliable data for monitoring of the Nile Basin resources as well as collect data to inform planning to prevent potential conflicts over the use of the Nile waters, said Mr Chelugui. The launch was attended by Water ministers from NBI member states, the Nile Technical Advisory Committee, stakeholders and civil society organisations. The Hydro-Met System project funded by the European Union and the government of Government, will include 79 hydrological monitoring stations, 322 meteorological monitoring stations and upgraded water quality laboratories. To-do list As the chair, Kenya will lead the initiative for a period of one year and is seeking to transform it into a co-operation like other basins around the world. “We want to transform it to a co-operation where equitable use of water resources is practised,” said Mr Chelugui. Top of the to-do list for Mr Chelugui is bringing back Egypt to the Initiative. Egypt left in 2010 to protest the signing of the Co-operative Framework Agreement (CFA) by some member countries, a pact that it was opposed to. Currently, six countries have signed the CFA—Uganda, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Tanzania, Kenya and Burundi—of which only four—Ethiopia, Rwanda, Tanzania, and Uganda — have ratified while Kenya is in the process of ratifying after signing it on May 19, this year. Ethiopia has already deposited the CFA with the African Union, while Sudan reviewed its position in 2010. “We intend to employ persuasion and diplomacy to bring back Egypt. We want to reach consensus and reconciliation on the issues which made the state leave,” Mr Chelugui added. Egypt, on the other hand, wants an alternative agreement which will allow other Nile Basin countries to do projects along the River Nile. The country still stands by the 1929 Nile Waters Agreement and the 1959 agreement between itself and Sudan. Other members of the NBI are South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo and Eritrea as an observer state. River Nile upstream countries have been pushing joint projects, and there is an interconnection and power generation project between Kenya and Uganda (Lessos-Tororo- Bujagali), which is expected to increase cross-border power trade and access to reliable and affordable energy and reduce operational costs, said Mr Chelugui.

The biggest family day of the year just rolled around and several of our faves were busy living it up with family and friends. Before hitting up the dinner table, a few fly chicks made their way to the 93rd Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City.

Along with the huge balloons/floats (which almost didn’t make it to the parade due to the weather), there was a line-up of performances that included Ciara, Kelly Rowland and Ashanti.

CiCi rocked a festive red Moncler ensemble which featured a red puffer jacket, drawstring puffer pants, a red turtleneck, and black combat boots.

She performed her new track "Melanin" and turned all the way up with a performance of "Level Up."

Meanwhile, fab chick Kelly Rowland kept warm in a black Tom Ford 'fit, which featured a velvet catsuit and long wool coat.  Gorge.

 

The "Melanin" singer and the "Motivation" singer made sure to catch up and snap a bestie flick together.

Peep their performances below:

The gorgeous Ashanti pulled up to the parade looking like the goddess of winter.

 

 

The R&B singer wore a custom white Cadet Couture jumpsuit styled with a sparkly xSclusivee Designs headpiece, white Wing + Weft gloves, and topped her 'fit with a white Helen Yarmak coat.

Getting and Keeping a Foot in the Door: Strategies by Migrant and Informal Sector Women to Remain Relevant in the Labour Market

 Cache   

This work was supported by Mistra Urban Futures

Abstract

United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 5 and 8 focus on gender equality; decent work and economic growth respectively. The achievement of these goals requires a realization that gender parity is significant to the growth of global economies, and that meaningful inclusion of women in the labour market is a major contributor to reducing the global gender gap. Over the years, there has been an increase in the participation of women in the labour market. Despite the various measures put in place, this inclusion continues to be hampered by structural and cultural factors. However stereotypic roles and responsibilities as well as systematic structural inequalities within the labour market continue to serve as barriers to optimal involvement and participation in gainful employment. This article seeks to explore these gender related inequalities that threaten to exacerbate women’s economic vulnerability and dependence for specific localized groups of women in Kenya and Sweden. Using a framework based on structure, culture and agency, the article illuminates how these women navigate challenges presented by the nature of the job, multiplicity of roles and language as an empowering tool. Key insights from the study established that the women in the different contexts experienced similar threats and used their agency to maneuver these so as to participate as effectively as they could in the labour market. The coping mechanisms employed by these women present opportunities for policy makers and advisors in both contexts to explore in the quest to improve women’s participation in the workforce.

Use of Conventional Teaching Resources in Secondary Schools in Bungoma County, Kenya

 Cache   

Education is core to national development as it provides the human resource and intellectual capital to drive economies. Attaining this hence requires meaningful and gainful learning through the incorporation of a range of instructional resources that help develop learners skills, attitudes and practical competencies required in the ever changing market economy. However, in spite of the various government interventions to increase access to education, empirical research evidence shows that students continue to perform dismally in both formative and summative evaluation. The paper therefore sought to determine the dynamics existing in the utilization of conventional teaching resources in secondary schools in Bungoma County. The paper was guided by the Cognitive Theory of Instructional as propounded by Jean Piaget that emphasizes the significance of instructional resources in the teaching and learning process. The paper adopted a descriptive survey design. The target population consisted of teachers and students from public secondary schools in Bungoma County. In order to have a representative sample, this paper employed stratified random sampling to select schools. Questionnaires, interview and observation schedules and document analysis were used as data collection instruments. Validity was established through expert opinion. Reliability was established through piloting. Data was analyzed using inferential and descriptive statistics. The findings showed that majority of teachers, students and principals were of the opinion that public secondary schools in Bungoma County had inadequate conventional instructional resources. It was further deduced that funding, number of students and teachers’ ease of use influenced the acquisition of conventional instructional resources in public secondary schools in Bungoma County. From the findings it was recommended that educational stakeholders should improve the quality of instructional through proper identification, selection and utilization of instructional resources. There is need for all stakeholders including the County Government, National Government and the Private sector to contribute financially and materially in the provision of conventional instructional materials and resources.

Yet for 85-year-old Peter Torongei, and thousands like him, there is very little hope. His tin shack sits firmly in the area called “Squatters Land”.

From anti to alter-globalization

 Cache

By the end of the 1980s, various cracks began to appear in the global neoliberal edifice. Partially, they were triggered by early crises that erupted in Mexico, Brazil, Thailand, and Russia, among other countries. The impact of the so-called Washington consensus was making itself felt in the form of massive cuts to public services and jobs and financial shifts that allowed big finance to profit from public and private debt, in addition to privatization and deregulation that put trade unions and other social movements on the defensive. The various fragmented revolts in the 80s were a harbinger of what was to come.

Origins

At the beginning of 1994, the little known southern province of Mexico gained international attention. In Chiapas, the peasant-indigenous population took to the streets under the banner of the Zapatista Liberation Army (EZLN). It was a big surprise, even to the Mexican state, which was taken aback by the scale of the protest and the fact that it was widely supported, even outside Chiapas. The EZLN adopted a new language that distinguished it from earlier liberation movements, emphasizing a non-statist view, local autonomy and non-hierarchical structures. This discourse gained currency worldwide through emerging social media and annual conferences held in the jungles of Chiapas. At the same time, huge protest marches were organized all over Europe and North America against the World Bank, the IMF and WTO, which encountered an exceptionally large gathering of angry protestors at its meeting in Seattle in the fall of 1998. The “Battle of Seattle” was unique in the sense that it brought together a wide variety of social movements, from teamsters (trade unions) to “turtles” (environmental campaigns). In the Americas, north and south, this inaugurated a series of struggles that led to the massive People’s Summit in Québec City in 2001.

The ascending phase

This was not yet a movement, but rather a vast tapestry of initiatives in opposition to neoliberal globalization. These struggles revitalized a number of left-wing think-tanks, publications and organizations in the North. In South America, meanwhile, mass pro-democracy movements were offering real resistance to authoritarian regimes. Coalitions in Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina and later Bolivia and Ecuador came together with a strong grass-roots push and by the beginning of the new millennium, Pink Tide governments were established in many countries. It was during this turbulent phase that movements from the Global North, inspired by developments in the Global South, conceived the idea of creating a platform to recharge policy debates and explore the contours of new visions of social transformation. This laid the groundwork for the World Social Forum. Brazilian-led, the WSF had no clear and explicit strategy, but there was a consensus around the need to build a new framework of analysis. For several years after the founding event, hundreds of thousands of movements and people met in Brazil, and later in India, Mali, Tunisia, Kenya and many other countries, with the aim of developing an alter-globalization perspective.

The WSF process was original because it was an open space where participants themselves were to define the agenda through self-organized political and cultural activities. Much of the work involved drafting an alternative economic program based on the revitalization of the public sector, the decommodification of basic goods and services, new fiscal and financial mechanisms to push back inequalities, local non-market enterprises and the like. At the same time, there was much discussion of how to “democratize democracy,” how to struggle against gender, generational and ethnic discrimination, and how to change the rules of the game to wrest space and opportunities for meaningful citizen participation within the framework of liberal democracy. These immense brainstorming sessions were carried out by many social movements that also took advantage of the WSF to create new international and action-oriented networks, such as Via Campesina and the World March of Women. The WSF methodology was also adopted by hundreds of national and municipal forums in which citizens had a chance to act, play, speak out and express their hopes. It thus helped to bring movements together, create new dynamics and give rise to new projects. One such successful forum was organized in Ottawa in 2012. The Peoples’ Social Forum brought together a critical mass of movements from Canada, Québec and Indigenous communities for the first time in Canadian history.

In its ascending phase, alterglobalization was at once a rallying point for social movements, a political program for the most advanced progressive parties, a living laboratory involving millions of professors, students, intellectuals and artists. It also benefited from concrete support by Pink Tide governments, and particularly Brazil and Venezuela.

Uncertain times

In 2008, global capitalism suffered its most severe crisis since 1929. It shook the Global North first, and within a few years mass mobilizations erupted under the banner of Occupy Wall Street (in Canada and the United States), the Indignados (in Spain and other southern European countries) before crossing the Mediterranean in a historic movement that led to the implosion of long-standing dictatorships, mainly in Egypt and Tunisia. In many ways, these diverse movements all travelled the paths opened up in South America and through the WSF. Unlike in South America, however, they did not have a political counterpart and in the absence of either a European or Maghreb-Mackrek pink tide, the revolts did not succeed in reversing the trends. The countries of the Global North were thus able to steady themselves without too much effort, and the countries of the Global South fell into the grip of resuscitated dictatorship (with the exception of Tunisia). Even where social movements grew strong (in Spain and Greece, for example), the edifice of power was able to withstand the challenge by a combination of local/national reactionary offensives, on the one hand, and international intervention by undemocratic neoliberal institutions, on the other. This counteroffensive also led to the demise of many pink-tide countries – Brazil and Venezuela in particular – which were unable to resist the reactionary assaults in addition to being weakened by their own limitations and contradictions. The World Social Forum was deeply affected by this new and debilitating correlation of forces. The traditional South American leadership of the WSF was blindsided by growing divisions between movements and between movements and pink-tide governments. The WSF in Tunis (2015), Montreal (2016) and Salvador de Bahia (2018) were interesting events, but they lacked the energy and enthusiasm of the past, falling into a bit of a rut rather than innovating and exploring new avenues.

Looking ahead

Although the historic alterglobalization moment has now passed, its ideas and achievements continue to inspire and we can detect its legacy in new forms of resistance. In many countries, admittedly, popular movements are on the defensive and social-democratic reforms are being repealed, while new forms of authoritarianism or “austeritarism” are being imposed. Yet if we look at the situation through a wide-angle lens, we can see expanding cracks in the system, with uprisings multiplying, as in China (Hong Kong), Chile, Sudan, Lebanon, Iraq, Argentina, Algeria, and Columbia. In many more countries, we are seeing ripples that portend big transformative waves. Social movements in many places have become more astute, employing new decentralized strategies. Many have taken the battle for Pachamama to the next level, announcing loudly and clearly that the problem, as Naomi Klein stresses, is not the climate but capitalism. At the same time, an international conversation continues via new forms of networking, such as the Great Transition conference (Montreal, May 2020), the World Social Forum on Transformative Economics (Barcelona, June 2020), the Global Forum on Migration and Development (Quito, January 2020), among many other events and developments. It is still too early, however, to hail the rise of an Alterglobalization 2.0.

Who is reinventing the left?

In the meantime, many left-wing political parties are evolving, scrapping the legacy of past sectarianism, as we have seen, for instance, in the United States (Democratic Socialists of America), Quebec (Québec Solidaire), Chile (Frente Amplio), and England (Momentum). The dark clouds of militarism, racism and fascism are looming everywhere, as evidenced most recently in Bolivia. But in all these places, the power struggles are complex, not predetermined, allowing creative movements to regroup, transcend their past experiences and invent new forms of political and social mobilization. Much more than in past, women, youth and marginalized communities are taking the lead. It is most probably an “interregnum,” to use Gramsci’s phrase, between the black hole of mass destruction and the hope for emancipation.

Domain Shane Domain Shane: I seem to always go off topic but I figured I would share some of the things that I use every day and absolutely love. Things I would recommend to everyone and anyone. Maybe it will help you use it as a gift or just something you will enjoy.
Feetures Socks. By far my favorite socks. I have 50 plus pairs of socks in my drawer and I always reach for these. Running, hiking, dress, or casual.
Milwaukee Cordless Tools. I think I have everything they sell. The battery lasts longer than any brand I’ve tried and the blower, chainsaw, and string trimmer are good enough to use commercially. Awesome stuff
Bight Jackets. I wear them to climb mountains because they are so light and warm. Which is perfect when you’re trying to keep the pack light. But they look good too. Everyone who I’ve bought one for has said it ended up being their favorite jacket
Sidekick Tool. You’ll have to see it to see what it does. But basically its a scraping tool for your muscles. It’s weird sounding and feeling but really helps repair muscle if you exercise a lot
FrostGuard Windshield Cover If you have a vehicle that has to stay outside and you live in a cold climate, this thing covers the window so you never have to scrape the frost or snow off. Simply come out, take it off, shake it out, and drive away. Best $20 I’ve spent in a while
Petzl Head light If you run or hike at night. The best headlight by far. Never had a problem in over a decade
LG OLED Tvs. Travis got me to buy one and he was right. Nothing out there like it. As good as it gets
YouTubeTV One day after I got it I knew that Dish, Directv, and cable TV was dead.
Savannah Bee Company Some of you got a gift of honey last year from me. It was from Savannah Bee. I love their stuff. Especially with whipped honey and tupelo honey. I raise my own bees but still don’t produce enough to meet my personal and gift needs

Review of policies and frameworks on climate change, agriculture, food and nutrition security in Kenya Amwata, Dorothy; Mungai, Catherine; Radeny, Maren; Solomon, Dawit In Kenya, agriculture is a key driver of economic growth and social development. The agriculture sector directly contributes about 28% of Kenya’s gross domestic product (GDP), and accounts for 65% of the total export earnings. The crop and livestock sub-sectors contribute approximately 78% and 20% to the agricultural GDP, respectively (CIAT 2015). Agriculture employs over 70% of the rural population and supports the livelihoods of more than 80% of the Kenyan population through employment, income, and food security needs (GoK 2010). The sector is large and complex, with diverse stakeholders made up of public, non-governmental and private actors.

However, whereas small-scale interventions may be successful for individual farmers, upscaling may change the environment in which these interventions take place (system changes). Typical issues that need to be addressed under upscaling include economic impacts, agro-ecological impacts, and institutional impacts. For economic impacts, the central issue is whether output markets are able to absorb increasing amounts of CSA products (in the Nyando Basin among others goat, sheep and chicken products), whether input markets are able to supply larger quantities of required fertilizer, (improved) seed, and feed, and whether credit is available to invest at scale in improved seeds, planting of trees and soil and water management. To ensure sustainable upscaling, it may be necessary to reach out to new consumers, or new sources for inputs. Agro-ecological impacts refer to changing input requirements, predominantly of fodder, while institutional impacts relate to barriers that may exist in current laws and regulations.
          

Have Kenyans overcome post-electoral divisions?

Can Kenya protect its citizens from extreme weather?

 Cache   
Devastating floods are continuing to spread havoc across parts of East Africa. Somalia and South Sudan had been heavily affected and in Kenya more than 56 people have lost their lives. We look at Kenya's state of preparedness with the deputy director of Kenya Meteorological Department, Samwel Mwangi. On International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, World Health Organisation's Technical Officer Avni Amin tells us why framing violence against women as a matter of public health may help saving lives. We also hear from Leah Eryenyu, an activist with the Uganda Feminist Forum. A company partly owned by the British Government has been accused of a series of environmental and human rights abuses – in a damning report published today. Human Rights Watch says palm oil producer Feronia, which has plantations in the Democratic Republic of Congo, has been dumping untreated waste directly into the rivers used for drinking water, paying some of its workers under 2 dollars a day – and making them work in dangerous conditions.

Berbagai Macam Furniture Kantor yang Sering Digunakan

 Cache   
Fasilitas yang ada di kantor berguna untuk memudahkan dan menunjang pekerjaan yang dilakukan. Fasilitas kantor meliputi furniture, teknologi, serta perlengkapan kantor. Furniture kantor merupakan bagian penting yang harus diperhatikan karena berkaitan langsung dengan kenyamanan aktivitas di dalam kantor. Pemilihan furniture yang ideal berfungsi agar bisa menunjang pekerjaan orang-orang di kantor. Berikut beberapa macam furniture yang biasanya sering digunakan di kantor.

Beberapa Macam Furniture yang Ada di Kantor

Meja Kantor

Furniture kantor yang wajib ada di sebuah perkantoran sudah pasti meja kantor. Anda bisa melakukan segala aktivitas yang berhubungan dengan pekerjaan di meja kantor. Ada berbagai jenis meja yang biasanya digunakan pada sebuah ruangan kantor, yaitu mulai dari yang berbahan kayu, besi, plastik, dan banyak lainnya. Permukaan meja kantor berbentuk datar, dengan bagian yang rata sehingga bisa digunakan untuk menulis, mengetik, dan meletakkan segala macam perlengkapan kerja. Meja kantor yang ideal juga memiliki laci pada bagian bawah yang berfungsi sebagai penyimpanan.




Partisi Ruangan Kantor

Partisi merupakan sekat atau pemisah antara satu meja kantor dengan meja lainnya. Memang tidak semua kantor terdapat partisi, tapi idealnya perlu ada batas yang memisahkan antar meja sehingga tampak lebih rapi dan antar karyawan bisa bekerja secara lebih fokus. Furniture perkantoran satu ini umumnya terbuat dari bahan kayu atau besi yang berbentuk segi empat dengan kaki di bagian bawahnya. 


Lemari Arsip

Lemari arsip menjadi salah satu furniture kantor yang memiliki fungsi penting. Lemari arsip berguna sebagai tempat penyimpanan berkas-berkas yang ditata rapi agar suatu saat jika dibutuhkan bisa didapatkan dengan mudah. Pada sebuah kantor, lemari arsip biasanya terbuat dari bahan besi atau kayu yang ukurannya bervariasi, mulai dari kecil ramping, berukuran sedang, hingga berukuran tinggi dan besar jika memang perlu untuk menyimpang berkas dalam jumlah banyak. Pada lemari arsip terdapat pintu penutup yang terbuat dari besi, kayu, atau kaca, menyesuaikan bahan lemari tersebut. 


Kursi Kantor

Kursi mungkin dianggap sebagai furniture kantor yang sepele, karena sering tidak disadari keberadaan dan fungsinya. Namun kursi kantor nyatanya memiliki kegunaan yang sangat penting di sebuah ruangan perkantoran. Oleh karena itu jangan sampai Anda lewatkan untuk memilih kursi kantor kualitas terbaik. Jenis-jenis kursi kantor beraneka ragam, misalnya kursi kantor eksklusif yang terbuat dari jok kulit dengan bagian punggung lebih tinggi sehingga nyaman dijadikan sandaran saat lelah bekerja. Selain itu, ada juga kursi kantor standar pada umumnya yang memiliki bentuk lebih simpel tapi tetap nyaman digunakan.





Kursi Tamu

Selain kursi kantor, kursi tamu juga perlu ada di sebuah ruangan kantor. Fungsinya sebagai tempat untuk menerima tamu atau untuk melakukan meeting dalam skala kecil. Kursi tamu yang biasanya digunakan di kantor bermacam-macam jenisnya, mulai dari sofa eksklusif, sofa standar, hingga kursi minimalis. Sofa eksklusif umumnya diletakkan di ruangan atasan yang sering menerima tamu penting. Sofa standar maupun kursi minimalis lazimnya berupa tiga kursi yang saling melingkar dengan meja pada bagian tengahnya. 


Itulah 5 macam furniture yang idealnya terdapat di sebuah ruangan kantor. Masih ada banyak lagi furniture lain yang biasanya digunakan, tapi 5 macam tersebut menjadi yang paling penting. Jika Anda sedang mencari furniture kantor kualitas terbaik dengan harga yang terjangkau bisa mendapatkannya di Arkadia Furniture, tersedia berbagai model furniture untuk kebutuhan perkantoran.

Budapesti Tavaszi Fesztivál: A dél-koreai zongorazseni újra Budapesten: mindent Jiről

 Cache   

A dél-koreai születésű, de gyerekkorától Amerikában tanuló Ji már tízévesen, minden idők legfiatalabb versenyzőjeként megnyerte a New York-i Filharmonikusok fiatal művészek számára meghirdetett versenyét. A csodagyerekként induló zongoravirtuóz nevét ma már világszerte jól ismerik, a Budapesti Tavaszi Fesztivál közönsége pedig abban a szerencsés helyzetben van, hogy tavalyi nagy sikerű koncertje után áprilisban újra élőben hallhatja. Többek közt azt a Beethoven-művet is elhozza, amellyel egy szünetben levetített reklámnak köszönhetően valósággal ellopta a show-t a 2016-os Grammy-gálán.

200413_jiyongkim_crop.jpg

Ji

Jit a Chicago Tribune tehetséges és érzékeny fiatal zongoristaként jellemezte, aki egyértelműen nagy dolgokra hivatott. Már a New York-i Filharmonikusok elismerése is a legjobbak közé emelte, a Juilliardon végzett, emellett 2012-ben a Young Concert Artists nemzetközi megmérettetésének első díját is elhozta, mégis egy tévéreklám kellett ahhoz, hogy az egész világ felfigyeljen rá.

Egy csapásra megismerte a világ
A zongoravirtuóz egy, a 2016-os Grammy-gála szünetében lejátszott Android-reklámban Beethoven Holdfény-szonátáját adta elő bravúrosan, egy kis csavarral. Az eredmény olyan hatásos volt, hogy a People magazin egyenesen úgy fogalmazott: igazából ő volt a Grammy-díjátadó igazi sztárja.

Ahogy azt egy interjúban elmesélte, rengeteg ajánlatot kapott a reklámot követően, de csak egyet fogadott el, a Warner Classics kiadóét, akiknél 2018 januárjában megjelentette első albumát. Debütáló lemezéhez Bach Goldberg-variációk című művét választotta, és már a borítója is jól érzékelteti azt az irányt, amelyet előadóként képvisel.

Mert változtatni

Ji elsősorban édesanyja hatására kezdett el zenével foglalkozni, aki énekelt és zenét oktatott. Egy alkalommal felfigyelt rá, hogy ötéves fia improvizál a zongorán, innen indult a különleges karrier. Bár már tízévesen elérte a siker, a Google Talks keretében tartott előadásán elmesélte: 18 évesen vízválasztóhoz érkezett, mert kezdte magát cirkuszi látványosságnak érezni – mindenki a csodagyereket akarta látni. Szeretett fellépni, de semmiképp sem akarta korlátok közé szorítani magát. Így két évre abba is hagyta a zenélést, különböző művészeti ágakkal foglalkozott, de az idő múlásával úgy érezte, egyre többet szeretne közölni a zene révén.

„Ez a keresés újra visszavezetett a zenéhez – de egy teljesen új módon kezdtem értelmezni és közvetíteni azt. Elegem volt abból, hogy megmondják, mit hogyan kellene csinálnom, de nagyon sokáig nem figyeltem a saját hangomra.” 23-24 évesen újra elkezdte keresni ezt a hangot. „Visszaemlékeztem, mit éreztem hétévesen, amikor zenét hallgattam. Ráébredtem, hogy a klasszikus zenével milyen sokféle érzelmet le tudok fedni.” Annak, aki szeretne egy kis ízelítőt kapni sokszínű egyéniségéből, érdemes megnéznie az alábbi videót, amelyben több izgalmas felvételt is láthatunk, például amikor tízévesen lép fel, vagy amikor a saját zenéjére táncol.

Tetoválások és extravagancia
Ahogy a fenti videó is mutatja, Ji szereti feszegetni a határait, és külsejében is meglehetősen extravagáns: tetoválásai és időnként hidrogénszőke haja láttán az elmúlt években sokak számára tűnhetett elsőre inkább távol-keleti modellnek vagy popsztárnak, mint klasszikus zenésznek.

Bach, a nagy szerelem
„A klasszikus zene mindig velünk lesz – olvasható Ji gondolata a Warner Classics oldalán. – Nagyon modern világban élünk, és az a dolgunk, hogy megéljük a pillanatot, de egyúttal az is, hogy tiszteljük és őrizzük a hagyományt” – tette hozzá. Ez a kettősség érhető tetten abban is, ahogyan a zene és a közönség felé fordul, friss szemmel és lélekkel, nyitottan, mégis alázattal. Bachhoz való kötődéséről így mesél oldalán: „Bár évszázadok választanak el minket, Bach ránk hagyta ezt a zenét, hogy segítségével egy mindannyiunknál nagyobb közös egységet teremthessünk. (…) Bach zenéje megtanított rá, hogy képes legyek nyitottan gondolkodni, hogy soha ne felejtsem el mások helyébe képzelni magam, még akkor sem, ha az a valaki több mint 300 éve élt köztünk, és olyan zenét hagyott ránk, amely még most is képes megérinteni és összekötni az embereket.” Legnagyobb zongorista példaképei között egyébként Richtert, Horowitzot és Anderszewskit emlegeti.

Közelebb akarja hozni a fiatalokhoz a klasszikus zenét
Fontos feladatának érzi, hogy megmutassa a fiatalabb generációknak is, milyen fantasztikus élményt tud nyújtani a klasszikus zene, ilyen adottságokkal pedig minden esélye megvan rá, hogy sikerrel is járjon. Szerinte ennek a számukra talán már ismeretlen univerzumnak a felfedezése nagyot változtathat sok fiatal világnézetén, és így a világot is jobbá teheti.

Kissé elérzékenyülve mesélte egy tévéinterjúban, hogy 15-16 évesen a queensi Steinway & Sons zongoragyárban dolgozóknak játszott a legfagyosabb télben, mégis élete egyik legmeghatározóbb koncertélménye volt. Hiszen azoknak adhatott valamit, akik a gyártósoron ugyanazt az egy alkatrészt állítják elő – közvetve viszont hozzájárulnak a zene varázslatának megszületéséhez. Nem véletlen, hogy a turnézásban a közönséggel való találkozást szereti a legjobban. Egy interjúban azt is elárulta, mit él át koncert közben: „Sokan kérdezik, hogy mire gondolok a színpadon játék közben. Tényleg nem tudom. Az idő ilyenkor megáll. Azt hiszem, tetszik a tény, hogy másfél órára megáll az idő.”

Egyszer már lenyűgözte a hazai közönséget
Hangszeréhez fűződő viszonya is időtlen: „Nagyon különleges kapcsolatom van a zongorával, kicsit olyan, mintha házasok lennénk” – mondja. Ennek a szoros kötődésnek és Ji magával ragadó előadásmódjának a tavalyi Budapesti Tavaszi Fesztivál keretében a Zeneakadémián lehettünk szem- és fültanúi, amikor a Goldberg-variációkkal vette le a lábáról a közönséget. A Népszava így írt a koncertről: „Ha kell, játéka nyomán tisztán feltárulnak a belső szólamok, egy-egy új hangsúly eddig nem ismert, rejtett dallamokra irányítja a figyelmet. A modern zongoristák túlnyomó többségétől eltérően mer barokkos szabadsággal, de sohasem túlzó szabadossággal bánni a leírt hangokkal, hozzájuk tenni a maga által kigondoltakat. Szabályoktól hemzsegő világunkban jó hallani ilyen felfogású és dimenziójú muzsikust.”

Beethoven bűvöletében
A kivételes tehetségű zongoravirtuóz a budapesti zenerajongók nagy örömére április 13-án Beethoven kultikus zongoraműveivel tér vissza a Zeneakadémiára, így – az emlékezetes tévéreklám után – élőben is megtapasztalhatjuk, hogyan interpretálja a magával ragadó Holdfény-szonátát, a Vihar-szonátát és az Eroica-variációkat

At the Point of No Return as Captain Kangaroo Holds Court

 Cache   

The ongoing effort to take down President Donald John Trump has entered a somewhat decisive phase now that the impeachment circus has commenced. There is no need, at least as far as I see it, to discuss the simple fact that this effort began during the administration of then President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and has been continued by the mammoth network of American intelligence communities with the assistance of the current president’s own Cabinet and sub-Cabinet appointees and numerous career bureaucrats who believe that it is their duty to “supervise” a duly elected president whose policies meet with their disdainful disapproval.

How Trump Has Enabled Those Who Have Sought and Continue to Seek His Ruin

Before discussing the coup itself, which, as Andrew McCarthy opined recently is being undertaken not necessarily to remove President Donald John Trump but to weaken him politically, something that, it would appear, might not occur given how Captain Kangaroo's coup hearings are unfolding as his self-shaped narrative of impeachable conduct unravels before his very eyes, it should be noted yet again that Trump’s lack of preparedness to be president and his ignorance of the necessity of staffing a president’s political appointees who are the nominal, sometimes very, very nominal, superiors of the career apparatchiks in the administrative state have resulted in a White House staff is that unusually at odds with itself and that leaks like a sieve even from those are supposed to be his allies and not the plants put there by the intelligence community.

Although, I have noted this in the past on several occasions, it is necessary, as I see it, to do so yet again as readers can forget what they have read, especially with all the verbiage available in cyberspace with just the press of a finger on a hyperlink. Repetition is the mother of learning.

First, Donald John Trump knew nothing about the Constitution of the United States of America before his election on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. He still knows nothing about the Constitution of the United States of America. While I am a critic of the false principles underlying the Constitution, it is nonetheless true that it is the governing charter of the Federal government. One who aspires to be the chief executive of the United States of America ought to have some familiarity with the provisions of the document that outlines the responsibilities and powers of the Federal government, including the limitations upon the exercise of those powers. 

Mind you, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and all other statists of the false opposite of the naturalist “left” had contempt for the Constitution of the United States of America because he believed it to be an “outdated” document that had to be deconstructed of its actual meaning to provide for the alleged “needs” of “the people” in a “changed” world.

In other words, the former president and commander-in-chief of the coup against the current president believed in the sort of “living constitution” that can be manipulated by Federal judges and/or ignored by presidents and congresses who have the “needs” of “the people” in mind. This is nothing other than a secular version of the late Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II’s “living tradition,” which was relabeled as the “hermeneutic of continuity” by Antipope Emeritus Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, that is nothing other than condemned Modernist precept of “dogmatic evolutionism.” Jorge Mario Bergoglio, of course, is just an open dogmatic evolutionist without any pretext.

President Donald John Trump is not a reader. He fashions himself a doer. He simply hath not the attention span to engage in the realm of ideas. He reacts to the world by pure viscera, and he may never realize that his visceral instincts, while correct on some occasions, can never be substituted for a clear-sighted understanding of First and Last Things, ignorance of which consigns any man, including the president, to becoming his own worst enemy over the time and also to becoming easy prey for those who make it appear as though they know the world better (another spoiler alert: military generals and intelligence officials) even though they, the “experts,” are equally clueless about First and Last Things.

Second, Donald John Trump was also ignorant of the actual complexity of the existence, no less the structure, of the Executive Office of the President, which is a massive behemoth consisting of 1,869 full-time employees. It was as president-elect that Trump remarked to the two-faced man who had tried to sabotage his election and was conspiring even at that time to undermine and cripple his presidency, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, that he, Trump, did not know how many people worked in the White House. Such ignorance was inexcusable and is directly responsible for much of the chaos in his presidency as the man with the gigantic combover of dyed hair was simply unprepared to staff the Executive Office of the President, which is why he “outsourced” much of the personnel selection process of the nogoodniks in the Republican National Committee who cared only about giving their friends cushy jobs and to try to “limit the damage,” as they continue to see it, that could be done if Trump actually did carry through with his threat to “drain the swamp.”

Third, Donald John Trump, as has been noted on this site several times before, was equally unprepared to name individuals to fill sub-Cabinet positions in the fifteen Cabinet departments of the Federal government. This is how he got saddled with holdovers from the Obama/Soetoro administration, including the nefarious Sally Yates, who served as Acting Attorney General of the United States of America while a New Yorker who is tougher than Trump, Charles H. Schumer, the Minority Leader of the United States Senate, slow-walked the nomination of United States Senator Jefferson Beauregard Sessions (R-Alabama) to serve as the Attorney General of the United States of America. Obviously, it should go without saying that Trump’s selection of Sessions was mistaken in the first place.

Fourth, Donald John Trump made a huge mistake by retaining the petty statist and vicious narcissist named James Brien Comey as the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (F.B.I.).  Comey should have been fired. Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Andrew McCabe, should have been fired. Even without all of the evidence that has been revealed in the past three years now concerning the corruption within the highest reaches of the F.B.I., the United States Department of Justice (D.O.J.), the Central Intelligence Agency (C.I.A.), the National Security Agency (N.S.A.) and the United States Department of State, Comey and McCabe should never have been retained.

Fifth, Donald John Trump made a “yuge” mistake, as they say in New York, by thinking that he could schmooze the retained Comey, whose new book confirms that he had contempt for Trump before his election and distrusted him after his inauguration. Trump has far, far too much confidence in his ability to win people over to his side, and it was when he saw that he could not “play” Comey, who has always been every bit the self-seeker, he chose a most inopportune to fire Comey, which played into the latter’s hand perfectly.  Comey wanted a “special counsel” appointed to investigate the nonexistent “collusion” of the Trump campaign with Russia, and he got exactly the man he wanted, deep state’s own Robert Mueller (see an editorial in The Boston Herald on Mueller’s prosecutorial misconduct in his current role as leader of another American coup, Investigators Reveal Bias Against Trump) and Real Clear Politics’ Carl Cannon’s Special Prosecutorial Abuse, when another ill-chosen appointee, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosentein, chose his former boss at the United States Department of Justice’s Public Integrity Section of the Criminal Division to conduct what has turned out to be an investigation whose scope is ever-widening. 

These were completely unforced errors. However, Donald John Trump is the epitome of the “carnal man,” which refers not only his notorious behavior as a serial adulterer in each of his three “marriages” but, much, much more importantly, his absolute obsession with himself and how he is viewed by others. There are more important things for a president to do than to be on something called “twitter” all day long as he responds to what the idiots in the chattering class are saying about it.

Trump also has caused numerous problems for himself by surrounding him with lowlifes such as the late Roy Cohn, the sodomite who mentored him never to admit that he had made mistakes and to attack others without any mercy or distinctions, the weaselly coward and financially crooked Michael Cohen and, of course, the amoral pro-abort named Roger Stone, the thrice married, thrice divorced serial adulterer named Rudolph William Giuliani, who became a pro-abort thirty years ago in order to receive the cross endorsement of the New York State Liberal Party (an endorsement that came with a twenty-five thousand dollar donation), who had absolutely no business being sent on any kind of investigation in Ukraine. There is an investigation to be undertaken in Ukraine, which is the ground zero of the deep state’s effort to thwart Trump's election and to cripple his presidency, but that is the purview of United States Attorney General William Barr and United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut John Durham, not of Rudolph William Giuliani. Trump's trust in Giuliani is similar to the trust that Madame Defarge (also known as Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton) placed in Sidney Blumenthal to run rogue "intelligence" operations for her whilst she was the United States Secretary of State from January 21, 2009, to February 1, 2013.

Similarly, despite the parade of the cast of characters that walked in and out of Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, New York, President-elect Trump did not acquit himself well when he selected such men as James Mattis, Rex Tillerson and Jefferson Beauregard Sessions to serve in his Cabinet, and the selection of Reince Priebus to be his first White House Chief of Staff was disastrous. Also, the presence of his Kabbalist son-in-law, Jared Kushner, in the White House was ill-advised, to say the very least.

President Trump was also hamstrung by selected such warmongers as Herbert Raymond “Daddy Warlocks” McMaster and John Bolton, of all people, to serve as his National Security Advisers after his original selectee, Lieutenant General Michael Flynn, for whom Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro had an intense personal animus, was kneecapped as follows by the combined statist likes of Acting Attorney General Sally Yates, Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Brien Comey, Deputy Federal Bureau of Investigation Director Andrew McCabe and Federal Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Peter Strzok:

Oddity No. 1: Then-FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe personally contacted Flynn on the second full working day of the Trump administration and asked him to meet with FBI agents, a meeting that McCabe reportedly characterized as no big deal. That should have been Flynn’s first red flag. The FBI doesn’t do “no big deal” interviews.  

McCabe’s request apparently came at the direction of his boss, former FBI Director James Comey, whose now-transparent camera lust led to the nugget last week that he wanted to exploit his perceived — and likely biased — view that the Trump administration would not be sophisticated enough to spot an end run around normal protocols and White House legal counsel.  

Was there anything legally wrong with Comey’s and McCabe’s duplicitous efforts to lull Flynn into a false sense of security, gain direct, solo access to him and not warn him about lying to agents? Nope. And that’s why his attorney’s probe of that angle went nowhere with the court.

But “legal” doesn’t mean it was proper. McCabe dispatched Peter Strzok and another agent to do the interview. Pause a moment: Comey, McCabe, Strzok. All three subsequently were fired for cause. Comey’s and Strzok’s strong anti-Trump biases, and McCabe’s conflicted links to the Clinton campaign, are well documented. It is fair to question their motivations for seeking out Flynn the way they did. Their actions were unprecedented for senior-most leadership of the FBI … yes, odd.   

And so Flynn, who now faces criminal sentencing for lying to FBI agents, was contacted by McCabe, who not only lied to FBI agents but did so, unlike Flynn, while under oath. McCabe remains uncharged. Words such as “odd” and “ironic” fail. (Three Oddities in in FBI Handling of Michael Flynn interview.)

For present purposes of this commentary, you see, James Brien Comey’s Machiavellian calculation about the unsophisticated nature of the chaotic Trump White House on the second day of its operation proved to be quite successful as it set the stage to cripple President Donald John Trump’s presidency by taking out his National Security Adviser. Moreover, Flynn, who had no reason to lie to FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, about the meeting that he had on December 22, 2016, with Russian Ambassador to the United Nations to ask him to cast a veto on a United Nations resolution condemning the Zionist State of Israel for its continued building of Israeli settlements on the West Bank, found himself under questioning for doing what Jared Kushner wanted done: to protect his beloved State of Israel.  (Flynn-Kislyak Conversation on Israel.)

In other words, it was the desire to help the Zionists that was used by the DeepStateniks to go after Flynn and thus to use their own strategies to capitalize on Trump’s unpreparedness to govern and the misplaced trust that he put in James Brien Comey.

Similar unforced errors on the part of Donald John Trump continues to this day, including that unfortunate “tweet” of his on Friday, November 14, 2019, the Feast of Saint Josaphat as the witness he  sought to undermine, former American Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch

The Bick Stops Squarely At Obama/Soetoro’s Oval Office

The observations above are not meant in any way to detract from the simple truth that the effort to prevent Donald John Trump from being elected and then, failing that, to undermine his presidency with all manner of false accusations that are then dutifully reported as “real news” by the administrative/deep state’s operatives and stooges within the mainslime media began right in the Oval Office with the imperious Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, who said of himself in 2008 that:

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for.

(APPLAUSE)

We are the change that we seek. We are the hope of those boys who have so little, who've been told that they cannot have what they dreamed, that they cannot be what they imagine.

Yes, they can. We are the hope of the father who goes to work before dawn and lies awake with doubt that tells him he cannot give his children the same opportunities that someone gave him.

Yes, he can.

We are the hope of the woman who hears that her city will not be rebuilt, that she cannot somehow claim the life that was swept away in a terrible storm.

Yes, she can.

We are the hope of the future, the answer to the cynics who tell us our house must stand divided, that we cannot come together, that we cannot remake this world as it should be. (Raw Data: Text of Barack Obama's Super Tuesday Speech.) 

Mind you, the now former President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro still believes his own narcissistic rhetoric. He really does believe that he was the “one” we had been waiting for and that not no one was qualified to replace if he did not approve of his successor and was assured that he (or she, another “chosen one,” Madame Defarge) would continue his policies without any qualification. This is what the former self-anointed secular savior of the United States of America said Thursday, November 3, 2016, in an anti-Trump campaign speech in Raleigh, North Carolina:

I’ve got Republican friends who don't think or act the way Donald Trump does.  This is somebody who is uniquely unqualified.  I ran against John McCain.  I ran against Mitt Romney.  I thought I’d be a better President, but I never thought that the Republic was at risk if they were elected.  And guess what, North Carolina -- the good news is, all of you are uniquely qualified to make sure this guy who is uniquely unqualified does not become President.  You just got to vote.  You just got to vote.  (Applause.)  And the nice thing is, you don’t just have to vote against that guy because you’ve got a candidate who is actually worthy of your vote -- who is smart, and who is steady, and who is tested, is probably the most qualified person ever to run for this office, and that is the next President of the United States, Hillary Clinton.  (Applause.)  (Obama/Soetoro Speech, November 2, 2016.)

Whether not United States Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz, whose report on how the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation and Justice Department’s mishandling of the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal permitted the malefactors to escape unpunished and criticized in the mildest manner possible, or the United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, John Durham, ever state categorically that Obama/Soetoro was (and continues to be) the mastermind of the ongoing coup, it is no more believable that the nefarious duo of James Clapper, the Director of National Intelligence from August 9, 2010, to January 20, 2017 and John Brennan, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency from March 8, 2013, to January 20, 2017, were acting as “roque agents” in the intelligence community than it was to believe that Lois Lerner was acting on her own when she headed the Exempt Organizations section of the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to thwart the application of “conservative” organizations or that “rogue agents” in the IRS’s Cincinnati, Ohio, office were to blame. It is also implausible that the Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Andrew McCabe’s infamous “insurance policy” against then-candidate Donald John Trump that was heralded in “tweets” by FBI Special Agents Peter Strzok and Lisa Page was taken out without some level of White House approval, if not directly from Obama/Soetoro himself. No, no matter what the Horowitz report or Durham findings may state publicly, it is really inarguable that the impetus for the ongoing coup against Donald John Trump was not the brainchild of Barack Hussein “play by the book” Obama/Barry Soetoro.

The former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency John “I voted Communist Gus Hall, a stooge of the Communist Part of the Soviet Union, for president” Brennan was not acting on his own when he pushed the self-important, above-it-all, self-appointed philosopher king and gatekeeper, James Brien Comey, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation into establishing a false narrative that Trump campaign aides Carter Page and George Pappadapoulous were working in behalf of the government or Russian President Vladimir I. Putin. John Brennan worked for and at the direction of Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, and though the proof may never be established directly, there is no doubt that the man who whose own “qualifications” for being president consistent of having served in the Illinois State Senate and for two years in the United States Senate before announcing his campaign for the 2008 Democratic Party presidential nomination, which he won narrowly over the carpetbagging expert in cattle futures named Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton, remains the mastermind behind the effort to prevent Trump’s election and then to thwart his presidency at every step of the way.

Indeed, Brennan’s role is at the center of United States Attorney John Durham’s investigation:

In the waning days of the Obama administration, the U.S. intelligence community produced a report saying Russian President Vladimir Putin had tried to swing the 2016 election to Donald Trump.

The January 2017 report, called an Intelligence Community Assessment, followed months of leaks to the media that had falsely suggested illicit ties between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin while also revealing that such contacts were the subject of a federal investigation. Its release cast a pall of suspicion over Trump just days before he took office, setting the tone for the unfounded allegations of conspiracy and treason that have engulfed his first term.

The ICA's blockbuster finding was presented to the public as the consensus view of the nation's intelligence community. As events have unfolded, however, it now seems apparent that the report was largely the work of one agency, the CIA, and overseen by one man, then-Director John Brennan, who closely directed its drafting and publication with a small group of hand-picked analysts.

Nearly three years later, as the public awaits answers from two Justice Department inquiries into the Trump-Russia probe’s origins, and as impeachment hearings catalyzed by a Brennan-hired anti-Trump CIA analyst unfold in Congress, it is clear that Brennan’s role in propagating the collusion narrative went far beyond his work on the ICA. A close review of facts that have slowly come to light reveals that he was a central architect and promoter of the conspiracy theory from its inception. The record shows that:

  • Contrary to a general impression that the FBI launched the Trump-Russia conspiracy probe, Brennan pushed it to the bureau – breaking with CIA tradition by intruding into domestic politics: the 2016 presidential election. He also supplied suggestive but ultimately false information to counterintelligence investigators and other U.S. officials.
  • Leveraging his close proximity to President Obama, Brennan sounded the alarm about alleged Russian interference to the White House, and was tasked with managing the U.S. intelligence community's response.
  • While some FBI officials expressed skepticism about the Trump/Russia narrative as they hunted down investigative leads, Brennan stood out for insisting on its veracity.
  • To substantiate his claims, Brennan relied on a Kremlin informant who was later found to be a mid-level official with limited access to Putin’s inner circle.
  • Circumventing normal protocol for congressional briefings, Brennan supplied then-Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid with incendiary Trump-Russia innuendo that Reid amplified in a pair of public letters late in the election campaign.
  • After Trump's unexpected victory, Brennan oversaw the hasty production of the tenuous Intelligence Community Assessment.
  • Departing from his predecessors’ usual practice of staying above the political fray after leaving office, Brennan has worked as a prominent analyst for MSNBC, where he has used his authority as a former guardian of the nation’s top secrets to launch vitriolic attacks on a sitting president, accusing Trump of "treasonous" conduct.

Now Brennan is among the most vocal critics of the more comprehensive of the two Justice probes, the criminal investigation run by U.S. Attorney John Durham and Attorney General William Barr. "I don’t understand the predication of this worldwide effort to try to uncover dirt, real or imagined, that would discredit that investigation in 2016 into Russian interference," he recently said on MSNBC.

The Trump-Russia collusion theory was not propagated by a few rogue figures. Key Obama administration and intelligence officials laundered it through national security reporters who gave their explosive claims anonymous cover. Nevertheless, Brennan stands apart for the outsized role he played in generating and spreading the false narrative. (Brennan Was the Prime Mover of Russiagate.)

This is not all, however, as it was John “Get Out the Vote for Gus Hall” Brennan made sure that the alleged White House hearsay “whistleblower,” Eric Ciaramella, who is a protégé of one Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. (see Alleged Whisteblower Erich Ciaramella Was Biden Guest at State Department Banquet), got to be his—and the administrative state’s—eyes  and ears at the nerve center of the Trump White House (see the very informative video: John Brennan Handpick Ciaramella for White House). Eric Ciaramella also accompanied the aforementioned Biden to Ukraine when the latter attempted to strongarm Ukrainian leaders into firing the prosecutor who was investigation why the Burisma company, which was co-owned by the inexperienced one-time drug addict named Hunter Biden, had received a contract from the Ukrainian government:

SEN. RAND PAUL: I think [alleged Ukraine whistleblower] Eric Ciaramella needs to be pulled in for testimony... he is a person of interest in the sense that he was at the Ukraine desk when Joe Biden was there and Hunter Biden was working for Ukrainian oligarchs. Simply for that, I think he is a material witness and needs to be brought in, the other question is, while the whistleblower is protected from being fired or from retaliation in court proceedings, the whistleblower is not protected from being asked who gave him the information, because we can't have a country where the private contents of the president's phone calls are leaked to people who are not supposed to be in that loop.

I think all these questions have to be asked. I don't think the whistleblower statute was never intended to have criminal trials and people put before the penalty of criminal justice without being able to hear from their accusers. So I think ultimately, he should testify. Adam Schiff is going to prevent it in the House. In the Senate, I will be advocating that if it comes to the Senate, we haven't had a vote yet of what the rules should be. By a simple minority, we should make the rules that the president is allowed to call all his witnesses, and then it is up to the president who he wants to call as his witnesses. (Rand Paul Says Ukraine "Whistleblower" is a Material Fact Witness and Must Testify.)

Ciaramella, it would appear, played a key role in the Obama/Biden White House of trying to “neutralize” Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, meaning that the so-called “whistleblower” (whose very appellation as such is inaccurate as the president of the United States of America is not subject to the jurisdiction and oversight of the intelligence community), meaning that the thirty year-old former “student activist” from Yale is no “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”:

More information is coming to light regarding CIA analyst and alleged whistleblower Eric Ciaramella. A new report from Judicial Watch revealed Obama-era visitor logs from the White House, which showed Ciaramella’s contacts during his tenure in D.C.

In their recent analysis of the visitor logs, the nonprofit examined his ties to Alexandra Chalupa, a contractor hired by the DNC during the 2016 election. She reportedly coordinated with Ukraine to investigate President Trump and his former campaign manager Paul Manafort. The logs showed Chalupa visited the White House 27 times and that her point of contact was Ciaramella. Judicial Watch released a detailed list of several other questionable figures who visited the presidential mansion.

Daria Kaleniuk is the co-founder of the Soros-funded Anti-corruption Action Centre (ANTAC) in Ukraine and visited the White House on December 9, 2015.

Former adviser Rachel Goldbrenner visited on both January 15 and August 8, 2016. During the time of her visit, Goldbrenner served as an adviser to former UN Ambassador Samantha Power, who was behind the unmasking of Mike Flynn.

Former European Assistant Secretary Victoria Nuland also met with Ciaramella and reportedly was involved in the Clinton-funded dossier. She visited on June 17, 2016. Judicial Watch has released documents revealing that Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s “urgent” gathering of classified Russia investigation information, which was disseminated to members of Congress within hours of then-candidate Trump taking office.

ANTAC Director Artem Sytnyk visited on January 19, 2016. He is tied to the release of documents during the 2016 campaign that were detrimental to former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort. Sytnyk was convicted in Ukraine — along with Serhiy Leshenkco — for releasing official documents about Manafort to interfere with the 2016 election.

Judicial Watch is calling on Congress to question Ciaramella about these meetings. (Judicial Watch Unearths Visitor Logs from Eric Ciaramella's Time at the White House.)

Even the Obama White House knew that Hunter Biden’s connections to Burisma were problematic, but the don from Chicago by way of Hawaii wanted to protect his vice president, which is why Ciaramella became a “whistleblower” in the first place:

Of all the supposedly shocking revelations that have emerged from the impeachment hearings this week, here’s one that the Democrats in Congress hope you don’t hear about: The Obama White House knew that Hunter Biden’s extremely lucrative appointment to the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, which occurred the month after his father was named the administration’s “point person” on Ukraine, reeked of corruption — and they didn’t do anything about it.

In Congressional testimony Friday, former Ukraine ambassador Marie Yovanovitch confirmed for Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY), that in 2016 the Obama State Department privately ran her through a series of practice questions and answers to prepare Yovanovitch for her Senate confirmation hearing.

Stefanik confirmed that one specific question Yovanovitch was asked to prepare for was, “What can you tell us about Hunter Biden’s being named to the board of Burisma?” Incredibly, Yovanovitch later testified that the State Department told her to deflect any questions she might get about Hunter Biden and Burisma by referring Senators’ questions to the vice president’s office.

This admission regarding her senate confirmation prep session was startling, and it flatly contradicted a prior statement Yovanovitch had made in the hearing: “Although I have met former vice president several times over the course of our many years in government service, neither he nor the previous administration ever raised the issue of either Burisma or Hunter Biden with me.” (Obama Administration Knew Hunter Biden was Shady, Witness Admits.)

When all is said and done, despite Obam/Soetoro’s fear that a President Donald John Trump would overturn ObamaDeathCare, end the globalist policy of “open borders” and reorient American foreign policy according to this country’s legitimate security interests, it is my belief that the principal reason that the former president was so intent on preventing Donald John Trump’s election and then thwarting his presidency thereafter was the latter’s prominent public role in raising questions about the forty-fourth president’s country of birth. Without discounting the fact that the fascistic Obama/Soetoro and the rest of his Jacobin/Bolsehvik adherents of the farthest reaches of the false opposite of the naturalist left do not believe that anyone other than they are qualified or even have the right to hold public office, it is my belief that the Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro’s visceral hatred for Trump originated with the “birther controversy.” Although Donald John Trump has a pretty thin-skin when it comes to criticism, he is a completely rank amateur in the thin-skinned department in comparison to the prima donna Obama/Soetoro, who was ever ready to use the “race card” to stifle opposition, a ploy that worked more times than not.

There is no need to address the specifics of the ongoing coup’s end game, impeachment, being led at present by the shameless congenital liar named United States Representative Adam Schiff (D-People’s Republic of California) except to note that the administrative/deep state operatives who have been hard at work for well over three years now in multiple Federal agencies and departments believe that they, not elected officials, set the policy agenda for the government of the United States of America and that anyone who dissents from that agenda must be disobeyed and then accused of betraying what they think are the “best interests of the nation.” It is beyond question now that the career bureaucrats, including those in the intelligence communities, and the foreign service, several of whose self-righteous, preening and posturing creatures have been in the public spotlight this past week, believe that elected officials are so much window-dressing that gives them cover to govern as they “know” is best for us unwashed masses.

Journalist Sharyl Atkisson made this observation in a different manner:

Under the U.S. Constitution, it is the president of the United States who determines foreign policy. How can President Trump be “at odds with foreign policy” when he’s the one who determines it?

President Trump may well have been altering foreign policy on Ukraine. It should be of no surprise that he wasn’t operating “business as usual,” since he ran on that platform and has executed it from day one. It’s clear that Kent and Taylor didn’t like or agree with Trump’s ideas, and believe they know what’s best. Trump rankled, contradicted and “embarrassed” them by operating outside the “regular” chain.

But they seem to miss the fact that their desires are subordinate to the president’s. “Official foreign policy,” as they called it, is not an independent unmovable-force object that exists outside the president’s authority; it is what the president determines it to be. The diplomats must execute the president’s wishes or resign from their posts if they feel they cannot bring themselves to do so.

Kent and Taylor genuinely seem to believe Trump was acting for his own political benefit — though they acknowledged they never had spoken to him or met him. Obviously, President Trump would say he was acting in the national interest. But their testimony makes it pretty clear why President Trump would develop a communications chain that would attempt to minimize career diplomats who do not wish to execute his wishes and may be working to undermine them.

Trump’s enemies may cheer on the idea of diplomats and other officials choosing to oppose or undermine his wishes. But based on our Constitution, the dissenting diplomats are the ones who are at odds with “official foreign policy”— not the other way around. To the extent they are attempting to further policies that oppose or undermine the president’s wishes, they are the ones conducting the “shadow campaign.” (The President, Not Diplomats, Sets 'Official Foreign Policy'. See also What impeachment is really all about.)

Even though President Donald John Trump was ill-advised mention in his July 25, 2019, phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, regardless of any nonexistent threat to withhold American military assistance even if that assistance was delayed for a time, something several of the unusually taciturn Vice Preisdent Michael Richard Pence’s aides were concerned might cause a political problem, the previous administration, that under Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., constantly threatened predominantly Catholic and/or Mohammedan nations to change their laws that defended the inviolability of the preborn child and criminalized sodomite behavior:

Last month, the eyes of the world were on Africa as President Obama welcomed Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari to the White House and, for the first time as president, visited his father's home country of Kenya.
 
Reports indicate that Buhari and U.S. President Barack Obama discussed the Islamic terrorist group Boko Haram, as well as possible political and economic reforms for Buhari's struggling country. Similar discussions took place in Kenya.
 
While all seemed well on the public front, the reality is that both Buhari's and Obama's visits were used by the White House to promote what Pope Francis called "ideological colonization." This agenda was let slip just days before Buhari arrived in Washington, when the U.S. State Department indicated it would push the Nigerian government to redefine marriage.

According to the Nigerian Pilot, America's Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs, Linda Thomas-Greenfield, told reporters that "[a]s a policy, we will continue to press the government of Nigeria, as well as other governments which have provided legislation that discriminates against the LGBT community."

Thomas-Greenfield defended the pressure, saying it was not international interference in Nigeria's domestic affairs, but rather is "very much a work in progress...I think you will agree with me that the law in Nigeria really went far in discriminating against this community but also people who associate with them. So, we will continue to press the government, to press the legislature to change these laws and provide human rights for all Nigerian people regardless of their sexual orientation."
 
Across Africa, millions of people face starvation, war, oppression, poverty, and death due to a lack of basic aid. For decades, the United States has provided myriad forms of aid designed to help nations surpass these problems.
 
Under the Obama administration, however, humanitarian aid has often come with a price tag: Abandoning traditional values, especially those related to contraception, abortion, and marriage.
 
In 2011, Obama issued a memorandum that directed all U.S. embassies worldwide to promote LGBT rights, which he said were "central to the United States commitment to promoting human rights."
 
"Under my Administration, agencies engaged abroad have already begun taking action to promote the fundamental human rights of LGBT persons everywhere," he said.
 
That same year, the administration made aid to Nigeria dependent upon its not enacting the Same Sex Marriage Prohibition Act. And before she stepped down as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton compared same-sex relationships to race and sex in a speech that left African leaders furious.
 
Last year, at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington, Obama and Vice President Joe Biden both suggested that Africa's war-torn, impoverished nations could attract economic and development aid from the West by becoming more gay-friendly.
 
This is social engineering at its finest, but it is not limited to redefining marriage. Contraception and abortion policies -- euphemized as "family planning" -- are also pushed upon Nigeria, whose citizens have rejected these mandates, which they consider harmful anti-women policies.
 
Again, this "ideological colonization" is not limited to Nigeria. During his visit to Kenya, Obama publicly lectured president Uhuru Kenyatta on his nation's laws against same-sex sexual relationships. According to CNN, sexual relationships between males over 14 is illegal, and punishable by as many as 14 years in prison.
 
This is the same administration that has spent substantial political capital on a deal with Iran that includes scant reforms in that dictatorial, terrorist-supporting nation, and opened relations with Cuba despite requiring few, if any, political reforms from the Castro dictatorship.
 
African leaders have long opposed Obama's 21st-century imperialism, especially religious leaders. In October, Ignatius Kaigama, the Archbishop of Jos in Nigeria - whose diocese is in the heart of the area affected by terrorist organization Boko Haram - and Bishop Joseph Osei-Bonsu of Ghana told me that they were tired of international pressure to legalize gay marriage.
 
The Nigerian prelate explained, "Marriage is between a man and a woman... even outside of scriptural support, our culture tells us that, nature tells us that."
 
And despite threats of denial of much-needed aid, he says, Africans will not capitulate to the demands. "These are our cultures, and we're not going to compromise over them."
 
Former Population Research Institute Media and Research Coordinator Anne Morse, who is beginning a doctoral program on population studies, was recently in Kenya. An observation she made on Facebook is instructive:
 
"Dear President Obama," wrote Morse, "[please] justify why--for every dollar USAID spends on water and sanitation in Kenya--it spends TWELVE dollars on family planning." Morse noted that she "[had] seen 4 advertisements for condoms today, but hasn't had a hot shower since Sunday."
 
The worst example of America's new-age imperialism is found in the growing evidence that President Obama purposely withheld aid to fight the terrorist group Boko Haram. While Buhari's predecessor has been accused of refusing U.S. aid to fight Boko Haram, what has been less reported is that the refusal came in part because the United States demanded Nigeria change its laws on marriage.
 
These accusations aren't just coming from Catholic bishops. A former U.S. Congressman, a Pentagon Army spokespersona Nigerian official, and the Nigerian Ambassador to the United States have all confirmed this is the case. To quote Ambassador Adebowale Adefuye in his statement to the Council on Foreign Relations, "the U.S. government has up till today refused to grant Nigeria's request to purchase lethal equipment that would have brought down the terrorists within a short time."
 
Nigerian-American Winnie Obike, a Ph.D. candidate in political communications at the University of Maryland, told me that she is "appalled by the Obama administration's foreign policy objectives for the African continent."
 
"It is ironic that a president who has passionately apologized for America's 19th and 20th century imperialism has adopted a twenty-first century imperialism toward Africa by forcing nations to change their beliefs on marriage, abortion and contraception in exchange for basic humanitarian aid," said Obike, who was the Minority Outreach Coordinator for the Minnesota for Marriage Campaign.
 
"Nigeria and other African nations need humanitarian aid and help fighting terrorist groups like Boko Haram, not the West's declining values," said Obike. "I urge President Buhari not to compromise traditional values in exchange for foreign aid."
  
In 2009, President Obama was given a Nobel Peace Prize because many hoped he would lead the world to greater peace and security. With less than 18 months left in his time in office, he can finally earn the award by setting aside his own ideology and focusing on the real aid needed by Nigerians, Kenyans, and many other Africans. (Obama's Twenty-first Century Imperialism on Display in Africa.)

How was this not impeachable and Trump’s putative threat to withhold military assistance to Ukraine that was granted after a delay of five weeks considered impeachable?

Well, there is intimidation and then, I suppose, there is intimidation.

A complete farce.

Moreover, what business does the government of the United States of American even have in Ukraine that justifies the sending of American military equipment and technology?

It is not an accident that many of the self-important military figures have testified before United States Representative Adam “Captain Kangaroo” Schiff’s House Intelligence Committee as these war hawks believe in endless war, and it does not matter to them that civilian control of the military is vested by Article II in the President of the United States of America. It is the president, not military officers nor career foreign service officers who establish American military and foreign policy.

President Dwight David Eisenhower was a globalist in his own right who had the blood of countless numbers of Catholics from Eastern Europe who were forcibly “repatriated” to the countries, then under the yoke of Soviet domination, were executed as “traitors” once they had been returned (“Operation Keelhaul”). Nevertheless, though, Eisenhower, a graduate of the United States Military Academy in West Point, New York, and a career military office, understood the dangers posed by the military-industrial complex, some of whose contemporary products deem it to be an act of “commitment to the truth” to cooperate in the takedown of their Commander-in Chief, which he expressed as follows in his Farewell Address to the Nation on January 17, 1961:

Crises there will continue to be. In meeting them, whether foreign or domestic, great or small,there is a recurring temptation to feel that some spectacular and costly action could become the miraculous solution to all current difficulties. A huge increase in newer elements of our defense; development of unrealistic programs to cure every ill in agriculture; a dramatic expansion in basic and applied research-these and many other possibilities, each possibly promising in itself, may be suggested as the only way to the road we wish to travel.

But each proposal must be weighed in the light of a broader consideration: the need to maintain balance in and among national programs-balance between the private and the public economy, balance between cost and hoped for advantage-balance between the clearly necessary and the comfortably desirable; balance between our essential requirements as a nation and the duties imposed by the nation upon the individual; balance between action of the moment and the national welfare of the future. Good judgment seeks balance and progress; lack of it eventually finds imbalance and frustration.

The record of many decades stands as proof that our people and their government have, in the main, understood these truths and have responded to them well, in the face of stress and threat. But threats, new in kind or degree, constantly arise. I mention two only.

A vital element in keeping the peace is our military establishment. Our arms must be mighty, ready for instant action, so that no potential aggressor may be tempted to risk his own destruction.

Our military organization today bears little relation to that known by any of my predecessors in peace time, or indeed by the fighting men of World War II or Korea.

Etiology and Clinical Presentation of Disorders of Sex Development in Kenyan Children and Adolescents

 Cache   
Objective. The purpose of this study was to describe baseline data on etiological, clinical, laboratory, and management strategies in Kenyan children and adolescents with Disorders of Sex Development (DSD). Methods. This retrospective study included patients diagnosed with DSD who presented at ages 0–19 years from January 2008 to December 2015 at the Kenyatta National (KNH) and Gertrude’s Children’s (GCH) Hospitals. After conducting a search in the data registry, a structured data collection sheet was used for collection of demographic and clinical data. Data analysis involved description of the frequency of occurrence of various variables, such as etiologic diagnoses and patient characteristics. Results. Data from the records of 71 children and adolescents were reviewed at KNH (n = 57, 80.3%) and GCH (n = 14, 19.7%). The mean age at the time of diagnosis was 2.7 years with a median of 3 months. Thirty-nine (54.9%) children had karyotype testing done. The median age (IQR) of children with reported karyotypes and those without was 3.3 years (1.3–8.9) and 8.3 years (3.6–12.1), respectively (). Based on karyotype analysis, 19 (48.7%) of karyotyped children had 46,XY DSD and 18 (46.2%) had 46,XX DSD. There were two (5.1%) children with sex chromosome DSD. Among the 71 patients, the most common presumed causes of DSD were ovotesticular DSD (14.1%) and CAH (11.3%). Majority (95.7%) of the patients presented with symptoms of DSD at birth. The most common presenting symptom was ambiguous genitalia, which was present in 66 (93.0%) patients either in isolation or in association with other symptoms. An ambiguous genitalia was initially observed by the patient’s mother in 51.6% of 62 cases despite the high rate (84.7%) of delivery in hospital. Seventeen (23.9%) of the cases had a gender reassignment at final diagnosis. A psychologist/psychiatrist or counselor was involved in the management of 23.9% of the patients. Conclusion. The commonest presumed cause of DSD was ovotesticular DSD in contrast to western studies, which found CAH to be more common. Investigation of DSD cases is expensive and needs to be supported. We would have liked to do molecular genetic analysis outside the country but financial challenges made it impossible. A network for detailed diagnostics in resource-limited countries would be highly desirable. There is a need to train health care workers and medical students for early diagnosis. Psychological evaluation should be carried out for all patients at diagnosis and support given for families.
          

Health Related Reforms as a Predictor of Change of Behavior Among Inmates. A Study of Correctional Facilities in Kenya

 Cache   

This study focused on health related reforms on change of behavior of inmates in correctional facilities in Kenya. The study was based on the following objective; to examine how health related reforms influences change of behavior of inmates in correctional facilities in Kenya. The study tested one alternate hypothesis on whether the relationship among the study variable was significant. The target population was 10,111 individuals spread as 2,953 prison officers and 7,158 inmates. From this population a sample was drawn using a formula totaling to 385 individuals who were picked for the study. The sample was spread accordingly as 112 prison officers and 273 inmates. Purposive sampling was used to select officers’ in-charge and their deputies. Twelve prison officers on duty were picked randomly from duty roster using prime numbers for focus group discussion from each prison. A separate list of long term prisoners was compiled from the records of capital offence and other offences who have served jail term of over ten years or have been in remand for ten years and then the sample size was picked in proportionate to the population in each prison institution from the list. Primary data was gathered by a semi-structured questionnaire, an interview schedule and focus group discussion from the target population. Secondary data was gathered through analyzing relevant documents. The study incorporated quantitative and qualitative approaches to process, analyze, and interpret the data. The SPSS was applied to run analyses for percentages, frequency distributions, and measures of central tendency, where applicable. Descriptive statistics were computed for variable using frequencies, percentages, mean and standard deviation. Statistical tools used for inferential statistic were person’s product moment correlation(r), simple regression, multiple regression and step wise regression (R2). T-tests were used to test hypothesis in the study the results revealed that r=0.429,t=5.189, at p=0.000<0.05. H1was confirmed and concluded that health reforms had a statistically significant influence on change of behavior of inmates in correctional facilities in Kenya. Findings of the study are expected to assist government policy makers regarding formulation and implementation of the prison reforms. The serving inmates may benefit from the improved prison environment which will be aligned with market preference and whose content may benefit the community.

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

(Photos) Trending Kenya Couple That Everybody Knows

 Cache   

 Only a few social media enthusiasts have not seen these two couples in very lovely poses on social media. For most people that know them, they have become a social media sensation as thousands comment and like their lovely photo.

The couples hail from Kenya and reports indicate that they are not even married couples. They are both young lovers who have caught the public attention by celebrating their love on social media.

Social media users that have seen their photos admit that even a pre-wedding photo-shot has not gotten much attention like the couples who are still very young.

They have also wondered how the photos reach a wide audience within a very short time even though they are both not celebrities.

Their followership on social media has increased, thanks to the boy who chose social media as the means of celebrating his young lover.

Violence Scared Off These Islands’ Doctors, Now Health Care Arrives By Boat

 Cache   

LAMU ARCHIPELAGO, Kenya ― The motor sputters to life, kicking up saltwater and spitting a cloud of exhaust into the pre-dawn stillness. 

The captain and his deputy help two doctors from Nairobi, three medical assistants and a nurse climb aboard. They cram themselves among the waterproof boxes packed with vaccines and sterile equipment. As daylight breaks, they’re speeding northeast along the Indian Ocean coast toward some of Kenya’s poorest and most isolated villages, where there are few doctors and locals have little access to health care. 

The Safari Doctors team packs medicines in boats and travels to remote villages where health care is a luxury.

The team is part of Safari Doctors, a nonprofit that makes monthly trips deep into the Lamu Archipelago on Kenya’s dazzlingly beautiful northern coast. The word “safari” means “to travel” in East Africa’s Swahili language ― and the dozen or so villages the team visits on each trip require a difficult journey. To reach their first destination, the mainland village of Kiangwe, they weave the boat through a maze of channels, mangrove forest and white sand beaches for two hours, then set up a makeshift clinic and treat as many people as they can before moving on, zigzagging across the sea and camping out under the stars for several nights.

“Safari Doctors are the only doctors we see,” said Fatuma Ahmed, 24, a mother of a wailing baby girl, waiting to see the medics in Kiangwe. The nearest hospital is days away ― too far to reach on her own, she said. 

Since 2015, the Safari Doctors group has served a population of subsistence farmers, fishers and herders in a region that borders war-torn Somalia. Regular attacks inside Kenya by the Somali-led militants known as al-Shabab frightened off many of the doctors in Lamu County. Clinics have closed, leaving villagers without the tools they need to avoid diseases such as leprosy and polio. For some of the locals who came to meet the team on their October trip, these free monthly pop-up clinics are the difference between life and death.

Red outline shows approximate area of Safari Doctors' routes.

“We could walk to Somalia from here,” Harrison Kalu, the team’s nurse, told HuffPost as he carefully put two drops of polio vaccine into the mouth of a crying toddler in Kiangwe. Somalia has struggled to contain a polio outbreak due to low vaccine coverage. The disease spreads quickly among unvaccinated children and can cross country borders with human travelers, warns the World Health Organization. Under these circumstances, the WHO recommends that health professionals in Kenya monitor vulnerable communities and keep distributing vaccines.

“Without vaccinations, people would really suffer,” said Kalu, 67, a former member of the Kenyan navy who has worked as a nurse for almost 50 years. As a staffer for Safari Doctors, he directs the organization’s teams in the field.

It is not only children they help. Everyone from the villages comes to the clinics when the doctors arrive.

“My hands are too sore to work,” said fisherman and farmer Mohammed Adan, showing an infected wound from when he cut himself while hoeing his fields. “If I can’t work, my family will go hungry.”

Harrison Kalu, the nurse for Safari Doctors, leads the group's teams in the field.

Kalu and his team can see as many as 800 patients on each sailing trip. They stop for only a few hours in each village, setting up their gear inside crumbling community halls or thatch-roof buildings. Outside, families wait in snaking lines for a checkup. In Kiangwe, HuffPost observed that several of the patients who arrived at the clinic were soldiers from Kenya’s army, posted in bush forts to defend against the al Qaeda-aligned al-Shabab insurgents.

Al-Shabab guerrillas, fighting to establish an Islamist state, made international headlines in 2013 for attacking the Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi, killing dozens. But the group had been active in Lamu County in years prior: In 2011, militants kidnapped a French vacationer on Manda Island ― a destination for wealthy foreign tourists. Numerous violent incidents rocked the county for the next several years.

“It was terrifying for my family,” said Faisal Abdi, a farmer and patient at one of the clinics, talking of the times five years ago when al-Shabab was at its most dangerous. “We had to run and hide when the fighting came close.”

Kenyan military forces havepushed much of the insurgent force out of the rural areas and across the border into Somalia.

“These days, things are better, as the army has bases close by,” added Abdi. “But still they [the militants] hide in the forests close by.”

Each trip by Safari Doctors takes several days. Before launching their boat, they pack waterproof boxes with medicines and supplies.

The threat from al-Shabab is not completely gone, and the remaining militants know that teams from Safari Doctors visit this area, Kalu told HuffPost.

In one raid on a village the doctors visit, when they stole equipment left by the team for its next trip, the militants asked the community where Kalu the nurse was. “They asked for me by name,” Kalu said.

Still, he said he isn’t ready to stop coming because the need is so great. 

When the violence was at its peak, the local government did what it could to keep medical clinics staffed ― but the Lamu region now has only 10 doctors serving about 150,000 people, according to Safari Doctors.

“Due to the security situation, people did not feel safe to be in some of the areas, so some services closed,” said Dr. Victor Tole, chief officer for medical services in the Lamu government. “People had no other alternative for health care.”

The dearth of rural doctors means that local health workers, who have some medical training (often informal) and a deep knowledge of the community’s needs, rely heavily on Safari Doctors.

“Without Safari Doctors coming every month, I would have had to cope with all the medical problems,” said Omar Mohammed, a community health worker who runs a medicine dispensary serving Kiangwe’s scattered huts. The organization’s visits have “made a big difference to people’s health,” he added. 

Most of the villagers who come to see the Safari Doctors arrive with common ailments ― coughs, colds, cuts and sores. The medical staff performs routine checkups, then screens for more insidious illnesses. 

“I’ve come because my daughter has a high fever,” said Zainab Bakari, a 26-year-old mother of two who spoke to HuffPost. “The doctors here helped my son last year, so I’ve returned with my daughter because she is sick.”

This time, the doctors say it is a stomach infection that will soon clear. But Bakari was right to worry: The area has seen outbreaks of dengue fever and chikungunya, mosquito-borne diseases that can be fatal. There is also the risk of elephantiasis, a painful and disfiguring parasitic disease that causes body parts to swell to unnatural sizes. Even the risk of leprosy remains. Last year, two patients who had the infection got the medicine and were cured, but doctors need to keep a constant eye out for others who may suffer.

Safari Doctors carry supplies ashore at one of the stops on their route. The group sets up mobile clinics in each village for a few hours before moving on to the next stop. Each night, they camp out under the stars with people from the community.

It’s important that people have consistent access to health care to have a chance of preventing outbreaks, Kalu said. “You can’t just come to give health care when there is a big outbreak. At that point, it is too late, and you are dealing with diseases as an emergency.”

If one area does not have health care, diseases can spread unchecked to nearby areas.

“Infections do not have boundaries,” saidDr. Monique Wasunna, Africa director of theDrugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative (DNDi), which develops treatments for patients who otherwise might get no help. 

“Even in remote areas, there is movement in and out, so the communities around are at risk, too ― even if they have preventive measures and primary health care,” added Wasunna, a tropical medicine specialist who is not connected with Safari Doctors.

Umra Omar, 36, who founded Safari Doctors in 2015, grew up on the Lamu Archipelago and returned after completing her studies in the United States. Even before the militant attacks, medical services were not reaching people in Lamu County who needed them most, she said. A majority of people here live in rural areas, while major health care facilities are in places where the population is denser, she said. The same is true across countries in the developing world. Conflict makes travel even riskier.

On some trips, Safari Doctors travels by wooden dhow -- a traditional Indian Ocean ship with a triangle sail -- instead of a motorboat. The dhow is slower, meaning the team can't visit as many villages, but it's bigger, with room for more supplies and team members.

For those living in the mainland village of Kiangwe, for example, the road to the nearest hospital frequently washes out in the rain. Getting emergency health care means riding on a motorbike for more than a day, an expensive prospect for the villagers. People who live on the islands must take a boat to the mainland first, an even more time-consuming and costly process.  

“Safari Doctors works to fill the gap between the hospitals and health care on the ground,” Omar told HuffPost. 

To get all this done, Omar raises funds for medicines and staff salaries from tourism operators, as well as international donors, including the Canadian government. Many of the professionals who work with Safari Doctors are volunteers. 

The work they do has a ripple effect that spreads far beyond the Lamu region.

“Prevention is better than cure,” Wasunna said, pointing out that the costs of emergency treatment ― in terms of medication, hospitalization and the effect on patients’ families ― are far higher than having teams like Safari Doctors working to stop diseases in the first place.

“It might seem harder to do, but by putting in place preventive measures, you cover a large population,” Wasunna said. “Then people can lead better lives, and they can contribute to the economy. It helps the development of the country for all.”

Comment on GRAND STRATEGY RTS HYBRID ‘AI WAR 2’ OUT NOW ON STEAM, GOG AND HUMBLE STORE by Lakenya Guay

That's a pleasure to read your article and eventually clarify myself.
          

Csíra kisokos – melyiket milyen betegség ellen együk?

 Cache   

A téli időszakban, amikor kevés a friss zöldség és gyümölcs, fogyasszunk vitaminokban és ásványi anyagokban gazdag csírát. Élelmiszerbiztonsági szakértők szerint érdemes azonban néhány dologra odafigyelni.

A csírák áldásos hatása ősidők óta jól ismert. Vannak közöttük lágy, markáns, pikáns és kifejezetten csípős ízűek is. Magas a vitamintartalmuk, jelentős az aminosav-, az enzim-, az antioxidáns- és az ásványi anyag tartalmuk, és ezáltal fontos, értékes – és nem utolsó sorban finom – tápanyagforrást jelentenek. Ez különösen a téli hónapokban igen fontos.

A csírák magas tápértékű, teljes egészében emészthető élelmiszerek, amelyek azonnali energiát biztosítanak a szervezet számára. Rendszeres fogyasztásukkal hozzájárulhatunk egészségünk fenntartásához. A legismertebb csírák élettani hatásait a lenti táblázatban foglaltuk össze.

 

Mire figyeljünk?

Fogyasztásukkal kapcsolatban azonban néhány fontos szabályt érdemes betartani. Ha otthon, mi magunk csíráztatunk, mindig tartsuk szem előtt, hogy csak csíráztatásra szánt magokat használjunk fel, ugyanis ezek a magok nem tartalmaznak vegyszereket, vegyszermaradékokat, ellentétben a csávázott vetőmagokkal.

Az otthoni csíráztatás fortélyairól, a csírák táplálkozástani hatásairól szól a nemrég megjelent Csíra ABC című könyv >>>

A csírák fogyasztásával kapcsolatos veszélyekre figyelmeztet egy közleményében a Health Canada. Felhívják a figyelmet arra, hogy a FAO és a WHO az étkezési csírákat – mikrobiológiai szennyezettségük alapján – a közepesen kockázatos növényi eredetű élelmiszerek csoportjába sorolta, mivel a csírák előállítási technológiája nemcsak a csírák, hanem a kórokozó baktériumok szaporodása számára is ideális (kedvező hőmérséklet, páratartalom, vízaktivitás, hosszú csíráztatási idő).

 

Néhány tanács csírafogyasztáshoz:

  • Gyerekek, várandós nők, idősek és gyenge immunrendszerrel rendelkezők ne fogyasszanak nyers csírát.
  • Vásárláskor mindig hűtött, friss terméket válasszunk.
  • Ne fogyasszunk kellemetlen szagú terméket.
  • Soha ne puszta kézzel, hanem csipesszel vagy tiszta gumikesztyűben nyúljunk a dobozba és vegyük ki az étkezésre szánt csírát.
  • Étteremben ne fogyasszunk nyers csírát.

 

Ma már sokféle növényi csírát kínálnak a szuper- és hipermarketek. Kedvünkre válogathatunk a gabonafélék (pl. búza), a hüvelyesek (mungóbab), a zöldségfélék (póréhagyma, hagyma, brokkoli, retek), és a fű- és lucernafélék (lucerna) csírái között. Lássuk, melyik mire jó!
