          Bersih-Bersih Preman Palembang Jelang Asian Games, 17 Orang Ditangkap      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Palembang - Anggota Ditreskrimum Polda Sumatera Selatan yang tergabung dalam Tim Rimau menangkap 17 preman di kawasan pasar tradisional, mal, dan pusat keramaian di Palembang.

Preman tersebut ditangkap karena aktivitasnya berpotensi menimbulkan keresahan masyarakat seperti mengonsumsi minuman keras, membawa senjata tajam, dan melakukan pungutan liar.

Kasubdit III/Jatanras Ditreskrimum Polda Sumsel AKBP Yoga Baskara menyatakan, dalam penangkapan preman itu, tim menyita barang bukti berupa sepeda motor yang tidak dilengkapi surat, beberapa botol minuman keras dan tuak, serta beberapa senjata tajam.

Menurut dia, Tim Rimau yang dibentuk khusus untuk menertibkan preman dan pelaku kejahatan jalanan, menghadapi pelaksanaan Asian Games yang tinggal menghitung hari, akan bertugas lebih gencar lagi.

"Kami akan semakin gencar melakukan penertiban preman dan penindakan pelaku kejahatan jalanan, sehingga diharapkan gangguan keamanan yang dapat meresahkan masyarakat dan mengganggu kenyamanan atlet, ofisial, dan tamu negara bisa dicegah," katanya di Palembang, Selasa, 7 Agustus 2018, dilansir Antara.

Sementara itu, Kabid Humas Polda Sumsel Kombes Slamet Widodo mengatakan pihaknya membentuk Tim Rimau untuk "membersihkan" preman yang berpotensi meresahkan masyarakat dan melakukan tindak kejahatan di jalanan.

"Dalam beberapa hari ini Tim Rimau melakukan razia di sejumlah pusat keramaian dan daerah rawan kriminalitas untuk memberikan rasa aman selama berlangsung Asian Games di Palembang pada 18 Agustus sampai dengan 2 September 2018," ujarnya.

Dia menjelaskan, Tim Rimau yang dibentuk Direktorat Reserse Kriminal Umum Polda Sumsel saat ini terus berupaya merazia dan menindak tegas pelaku kejahatan jalanan. Melalui upaya tersebut, diharapkan mampu mengeliminasi potensi kejahatan jalanan di ibu kota Provinsi Sumsel.

"Beserta gangguan keamanan dan ketertiban masyarakat bisa terjadi yang mengganggu Asian Games," kata Kabid Humas.

          Kementerian Wanita akan naikkan had umur minimum berkahwin      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

Kementerian Pembangunan Wanita, Keluarga dan Masyarakat (KPWKM) akan menaikkan had umur minimum untuk berkahwin kepada 18 tahun.

KPWKM menyatakan pendirian itu dalam kenyataan media terbarunya bagi mengulas wacana nasional yang berterusan tentang kes lelaki 41 tahun menikahi kanak-kanak 11 tahun di Kelantan bulan lalu.

“Sebagai langkah jangka masa panjang, kementerian sedang dalam usaha bersama menteri hal ehwal agama di Pejabat Perdana Menteri untuk menetapkan had umur minimum perkahwinan di dalam semua perundangan kepada 18 tahun.

“Perkara ini melibatkan Akta Uundang-undang Keluarga Islam (Wilayah-wilayah Persekutuan) 1984, Ordinan Undang-undang Keluarga Islam (Sarawak) 2001, Enakmen Undang-undang Keluarga Islam setiap negeri, Akta Membaharui Undang-undang (Perkahwinan dan Perceraian) 1976, Enakmen Mahkamah Anak Negeri 1972 di Sabah, dan undang-undang adat kaum peribumi di Sarawak,” kenyataan kementerian itu dipetik.

Pada masa sama, KPWKM mengalu-alukan inisiatif Majlis Agama Islam Selangor (MAIS) yang terlebih dahulu mengusulkan untuk menaikkan had umur mimimum perkahwinan untuk kanak-kanak perempuan beragama Islam kepada 18 tahun di Selangor.

Kementerian itu yang diketuai Presiden KEADILAN, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail selaku menteri percaya langkah itu akan memelihara hak kanak-kanak.

“KPWKM tegas berpendirian kanak-kanak perlu diberi peluang untuk mengembangkan potensi sepenuhnya selaras dengan Konvensyen Mengenai Hak Kanak-Kanak (CRC).

“Kementerian menolak sama sekali perkahwinan membabitkan kanak-kanak pada usia terlalu muda lebih-lebih lagi dengan pasangan dewasa,” kata kenyataan itu.

Langkah-langkah lain yang lebih menyeluruh untuk mencegah insiden perkahwinan umur juga akan dilaksanakan kerajaan.

“KPWKM kini bekerjasama erat dengan Kementerian Pembangunan Luar Bandar dan Hal Ehwal Ekonomi penting untuk menghapuskan kemiskinan, meningkatkan taraf hidup komuniti luar bandar serta memberi peluang pemerkasaan ekonomi terutama kepada wanita untuk memastikan keluarga tidak memilih perkahwinan kanak-kanak demi kelangsungan hidup,” kenyataan itu dipetik.

Los Angeles, Aug 9 (IANS) Actress Lupita Nyong'o wants to fight the stereotype that "natural, African, kinky hair" is "uncivilised" and she wants black women to be proud of their natural hair.

"My hair is something that, historically, has been shunned. I mean, how often do you hear 'You can't get a job with hair like that?' Natural, African, kinky hair - it's often been painted as uncivilised or wild," Nyong'o told Porter magazine.

"Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfils me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are," she added.

The "12 Years a Slave" star is writing a children's book to help young dark-skinned children to be proud of their looks, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The book is titled "Sulwe" meaning "star" in the actress's native language Luo - and is focused on a five-year-old girl and her life growing up in Kenya.

A Harvard summer program provides a “lexicon” for healthcare professionals.

Three days before Garba Bakunawa traveled from Nigeria to Harvard for a nearly month-long course on global healthcare delivery, an electrical injury with the potential to imperil his ability to practice surgery knocked him unconscious. Heavy rains had flooded parts of his community in northeast Nigeria and damaged the local power provider. Abnormal voltage flares were causing problems throughout the area.

He awoke on June 29 to the furious chirp of wires sparking in the ceiling of his house. Telling his family to remain behind him, Bakunawa reached for the control box in the house to cut the power—and everything went black.

“I remember that I made an effort to touch it, but I can’t remember what happened next,” he said. “I just remember that I woke up on the way to the hospital and my brother was telling me that I was electrocuted.” By his account, he was luckier than most. The electrical problems injured many in his community, and even killed a few people. “At least I was healthy enough to walk around,” he said. After 12 hours in the hospital, he left on a regimen of antibiotics and with his right arm covered in a large cast. The shock had heavily charred the skin of his hand. It was not clear if he would recover well enough to practice again.

Bakunawa was due in Cambridge the following week for the start of the 2018 Global Health Delivery Intensive (GHDI), a three-week program jointly offered by the School of Public Health (HSPH), the Medical School (HMS), and Brigham and Women’s Hospital that convenes mid-career health professionals from across the globe for lessons about improving access to key health treatments. Voted an outstanding member of his hospital’s staff, Bakunawa received funding to attend the program and had already booked his ticket to Boston before his injury. His family urged him to try to reschedule. He would not be swayed.

In Boston, he joined a 55-member cohort of summer student learners representing 27 countries and a wide array of professional backgrounds, including in nonprofit leadership, clinical care, and community health work. More than half of that cohort labors in “resource poor settings” and a plurality of program participants are direct patient care providers, according to demographic data gathered by the program’s leaders. 

While Harvard does not provide financial assistance for the program, almost 90 percent of this year’s cohort received financial support from outside sources such as scholarship or training programs, or from employers, to cover the program’s $8,000 tuition fee. Sources of support came from a wide array of local and international organizations such as Massachusetts General Hospital and the Center for Health Care Delivery in Dubai (which funds ten full and ten partial scholarships to GHDI). 

“Some of the students are, of course, incredible themselves,” Davin Eurich, the program’s coordinator, added, “and will receive funding from the World Health Organization or their own ministries of health. It’s a work of art to see the funding work out.”  

Thinking Globally

In some ways, Bakunawa’s experience navigating dramatically different care infrastructure in Nigeria and the United States underscores the mission of the GHDI: to provide healthcare professionals with the know-how to standardize levels of care globally.

GHDI grew out of a larger effort launched nearly 11 years ago (the Global Health Delivery Project, GHDP), which sought to standardize a “lexicon” that healthcare professionals could apply to their respective regional contexts, said GHDI program director Rebecca Weintraub in an interview  (she is assistant professor of global health and social medicine at HMS). Eleven years ago, she said, her team set out to generate “what we viewed as novel public goods”—in this case, resources about best practices for global health professionals, including case studies similar to those created at the Business School, with step-by-step descriptions of how health professionals tackled issues in their regions, designed to help alleviate the disparities in levels of care and infrastructure that exist across the world. 

The GHDP was, according to Weintraub, one of the first of its kind, merging HMS’s clinical know-how with HSPH’s population-level, solutions-based frameworks: “It sounds not-so-novel now, but at the time the intersection between clinical and public health was relatively new, and when you think about it, Harvard Medical School and the School of Public Health are separate entities.” 

Harvard’s focus on global health is wide-ranging and continues to expand: it has launched more than 120 global-health related offerings, from Business School executive-education leadership programs to an undergraduate secondary field that focuses on interdisciplinary study of healthcare, policy, and science. 

GHDI, while not a degree- or certificate-granting program, is just as intensive as most other HMS courses. During their time in residence, students enroll in three courses—“Epidemiological Methods for Global Health,” “Introduction to Global Healthcare Delivery,” and “Management Practices in Healthcare Delivery”—which are meant to provide an interdisciplinary introduction to how health professionals tackle public health issues that recur worldwide. A combination of Harvard professors (some from HMS, HSPH, and the Kennedy School) and guest lecturers who work in healthcare teach the courses, which typically run 2 hours per session.

One GHDI case study this year examined a mother of three in rural Kenya whose youngest son developed a fever. A community health worker diagnosed him with malaria. The mother (named Esther in the study) could not find the prescribed antimalarials and mosquito netting for her children at the village drugstore, and she couldn’t get the materials from neighboring villages because their pharmacies were either out of stock or charged exorbitant fees. The case served as the starting point for a discussion on best practices for “last-mile logistics,” or how supply chains deliver their products to patients. The session pushed students to consider the inefficiencies at every step of the delivery process, from communication errors or demand fluctuations, that might lead to stock-outs during a crucial time of need. 

Other cases tackled issues such as the role of diplomacy in healthcare, community-based solutions to healthcare, and financing.

In one wide-ranging session of the management-practices course, Kolokotrones University Professor of global health and social medicinePaul Farmer—who chairs the eponymous department and co-founded the nonprofit Partners In Health—spoke at length about the challenges facing healthcare professionals: distrust of nonprofit organizations in places like Haiti (where Farmer and Partners have long been active); the need to understand historical context when planning broad care efforts; and continuing debates over how to define “equity” and “universality” in care. He stressed the importance of addressing such issues explicitly. “When you impoverish a discussion about healthcare for decades, a lot of not talking about it, I tend to believe any discussion of universality is a good one,” Farmer said. He put current discussions about the universality of healthcare into the context of American upheavals such as the abolitionist and civil-rights movements.  

The theme of equity in healthcare emerged in many of the program’s sessions, Weintraub emphasized. “In many ways, our students come to the program with that sense. Equity is already a part of their professional agenda, but they come here looking for ways to operationalize it.”

A Vast Network 

Though coursework is a major component of the experience of the GHDI, program coordinator Davin Eurich said networking and opportunities for peer-to-peer learning bolster the graduates’ experiences.

“Those that were willing to share their vulnerability and hardships [in ways] that others in the class could really relate to...is what really builds this network,” she said. “The students are coming and meeting different inspiration points. Some are moving on...to other programs at Harvard. Others are leveraging GHDI in numerous other ways back home.”

GHDI has graduated 350 students from 60 countries so far. Many have returned to work in the ministries of health of their respective countries or to aid nonprofits in region-specific work, while others return to local hospitals to deploy the new knowledge they have acquired.

Bakunawa will return with that—and more. O[2] ne day, during a lecture in the beginning of the program, Bakunawa raised his hand to answer a question, and HMS professor and GHDI co-director Joseph Rhatigan noticed the injury to his hand for the first time. 

“That day he sent me a message saying there was a doctor, a hand surgeon, who would like to review me, and he was able to link me with a plastic surgeon,” Bakunawa said. “Just like a family, they treated me very well.” Faculty from the program, HMS instructors, and physicians at Brigham worked to provide Bakunawa with surgery free of charge, including skin grafting to the affected areas on his hand and the removal of one of his fingers, which had been badly damaged.

“I called my wife and my family and I told them what was happening, and that they’re doing it for free. I didn’t have the money to do it here, and this was at one of the best hospitals globally,” he said. “I was so happy with the consideration, with the sympathy I received from my colleagues.” 

The program and the care he received from classmates has inspired him, demonstrating in word and deed that anything is possible. And that has become a mantra. “One of our facilitators here, Rebecca [Weintraub], she says that instead of saying ‘no,’ just say ‘it’s possible.”  

At the graduation ceremony on the last day of the program, the students heard from Stephen Kahn, president of the Abundance Foundation, an organization that helps train nonprofit leaders who work on the intersection of health, arts, and education. Kahn graduated with the first cohort of the program, and the foundation he now heads has supported Partners In Health in the past, and according to Eurich, provides financial support to GHDI that helps the program’s leaders improve the course offerings each year. 

In his keynote remarks, Kahn spoke of grappling with issues of scarce resources during an experience working in hospital in Zambia before attending GHDI. Without the necessary HIV diagnostic technology, he said he “had to guessat which of my languishing patients were dying of AIDS.” 

“I thumbed through my Merck manual, hoping the pages would answer the endless cascade of questions I had. All I had was my clinical vigilance,” he said. 

Kahn called GHDI a “profound turning point” for him, and stressed that the program’s emphasis on providing political and historical context for its cases helped deepen his understanding of how to address public-health crises. Moreover, he emphasized that relying on the network of GHDI graduates has strengthened his work—by providing professional advice and by helping him weather the toughest moments of being a healthcare provider.

“I’m standing shoulder to shoulder with you in this work to bring equity and excellence in healthcare,” Kahn told the graduates. “It’s so easy to get conditioned to scarcity. The global health delivery course is an antidote to that mindset.”

          Il capo dell’Unep Solheim: dal mondo arrivano molte buone notizie per l’ambiente      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Intervistato da UN News, Erik Solheim,  direttore esecutivo dell’United Natoins Environment Programme (Unep), ha ricordato che «il 2017 è stato il primo anno nella storia dell'umanità nel quale  è stata generata globalmente più elettricità dal sole, rispetto a petrolio, gas e carbone messi insieme». Nonostante la serie di non confortanti studi pubblicati recentemente su clima e biodiversità, Solheim resta ottimista: <Siamo sulla buona strada», ma anche lui avverte: «Abbiamo davvero bisogno di accelerare».

Il direttore esecutivo  dell’Unep ha evidenziato alcune esperienze positive: «L'India meridionale, ad esempio, ha ora il primo aeroporto tutto-solare al mondo« e ha aggiunto che «Alcuni degli Stati meridionali dell'India stanno vivendo lo sviluppo economico più rapido di qualsiasi parte del mondo, basato sull'energia solare».

Non è mancata una stoccata per Donald Trump che ha deciso di tirare fuori gli Usa dall’Accordo di Parigi per non danneggiare la competitività dell’industria americana dei fossili: «Negli Stati Uniti ci sono cinque volte più posti di lavoro nel solare, che nel carbone».

Solheim è ottimista anche per quanto riguarda il rispetto del Sustainable development goal (Sdg) 15 – proteggere la vita sulla terra – e ha ricordato che «la Cina ha recentemente vietato qualsiasi commercio di avorio, Una cosa molto importante perché blocca il mercato a coloro che uccidono gli elefanti in Africa».

Poi il direttore esecutivo dell’Unep ha definito «un enorme, enorme successo» qualcosa che invece è molto controverso e le cui cifre sono contestate da associazioni come Greenpeace: «L'Indonesia ha ridotto la deforestazione nelle sue torbiere di quasi il 90%. La torba è parzialmente decomposta, vegetazione morta, che immagazzina enormi quantità di carbonio e, tra le altre cose, assorbe l'acqua - contribuendo a mitigare le inondazioni - durante la stagione umida e rilascia acqua durante la stagione secca».

Secondo Solheim in Africa il Rwanda e il Botswana «stanno facendo molto, molto bene» per proteggere lla fauna selvatica, ma ha ammesso che «Ancora, non si sta rivelando sufficiente per il pianeta. Dobbiamo fare molto di più. L’Unep lavora con i governi, la società civile e le imprese, per trasformare la natura in un'opportunità di business, a vantaggio di tutti». E anche in questo caso ha fatto l’esempio del Rwanda che tassa per 1.500 dollari a persona i turisti  che vogliono andare a vedere i suoi gorilla di montagna protetti, la cui popolazione è ora in aumento. Solheim riconosce che si tratta di un costo alto, ma fa notare che «Tuttavia,  ha creato una fantastica economia per il Ruanda, per i tassisti, per gli insegnanti delle scuole per i camerieri degli hotel. E la gente intorno al parco nazionale sarà la prima a difendere i gorilla perché il loro sostentamento dipende da essi».

Prendendo spunto dall’Sdg 14, la vita sott'acqua, il capo dell’Unep ha raccontato la commovente storia di una balena morta in Thailandia che aveva ingoiato 80 sacchetti di plastica e ha sottolineato che, di fronte a esempi di distruzione ambientale come questi, persone e governi stanno reagendo: «L'India ha promesso di eliminare gradualmente tutti i sacchetti di plastica monouso entro il 2022; mentre l'Unione europea ha annunciato una nuova strategia per utilizzare la plastica in un modo più sicuro e sostenibile dal punto di vista ambientale. Anche il Parlamento cileno ha intrapreso una forte azione contro la plastica, Il  Kenya, l'Eritrea e il Ruanda hanno promesso tutti di agire di più. Inoltre, delle imprese che in precedenza si erano rifiutate di agire, ora sono diventate forti sostenitrici, come Coca-Cola e Starbucks  negli Stati Uniti,. Ma dietro i Paesi e le imprese c'è il forte movimento di persone che dicono: 'Vogliamo cambiare”».

Per Solheim, la strada da seguire è quella di «collegare il turismo sostenibile con le opportunità economiche, i posti di lavoro, lo sviluppo e l’energia sostenibile. L'unico modo in cui possiamo veramente proteggere il pianeta è quello di fornire allo stesso tempo opportunità alle persone che vivono su questo pianeta».

Il capo dell’Unep ha concluso la sua intervista a UN News enfatizzando l'obiettivo di far diventare la 2020 Beijing Conference per la natura un’iniziativa efficace anche per l’applicazione dell’Accordo di Parigi del 2015 sui cambiamenti climatici, e ha ricordato che «a Pechino saranno prese misure sostanziali per proteggere tutta la fauna della Terra, dagli insetti alle specie più vulnerabili e in pericolo di estinzione come le tigri, i panda, gli orsi polari e i leoni».

          Nissan Terra Masih Pakai Ladder Frame, Ini Alasannya      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Tangerang - PT Nissan Motor Indonesia meluncurkan SUV premium bersasis tangga atau dikenal dengan ladder-frame yaitu new Nissan Terra, di Gaikindo Indonesia International Auto Show (GIIAS) 2018.

Seperti diketahui, ada dua jenis sasis pada SUV yakni dengan sasis ladder-frame (tangga) dan satu lagi menggunakan sasis monokok.

Nissan Terra terbaru ini dirancang untuk memaksimalkan kenyamanan dalam berkendara untuk semua jenis medan, seperti menaklukan jalan perkotaan yang padat, jalan berlubang dan genangan air, serta menghadapi medan offroad.

Anton Khristanto selaku Manager R&D PT Nissan Motor Indonesia, Nissan punya alasan tersendiri mengeluarkan Terra terbarunya dengan sasis tangga.

"In case monokok, itu bodinya jadi satu. Kalau ladder-frame, itu terpisah antara frame sasis dengan bodinya. Jadi di antara itu ditambahkan cabin mounting," kata Anton, Rabu (8/8/2018).

Cabin mounting ini berfungsi agar penumpang lebih nyaman karena tidak terkena getaran yang ditimbulkan.

"Tujuannya adalah agar lebih banyak bisa menyerap getaran yang diterima dari sasisnya. Jadi tidak ada impact ke penumpang dan membuat lebih nyaman," ujarnya. 

Nissan Terra 2018 ini juga hadir dengan berbagai fitur Nissan Intelligent Mobility.

"Mobil ini adalah SUV pertama dengan Intelligent Rear View Mirror, sehingga pengendara dapat melihat tanpa halangan melalui monitor LCD yang terpasang. Blind spot warning (peringatan titik buta) dan lane departure warning (peringatan pindah jalur) memastikan keselamatan kendaraan di tingkat tertinggi," kata Masayuki Ohsugi, GM R&D PT NMI.

Selain itu, SUV ini juga telah disematkan Intelligent Around View Monitor (monitor pemandangan sekeliling pintar) dengan teknologi moving object detection (deteksi objek bergerak) yang ada di new Nissan Terra, memudahkan pengendara memarkir kendaraan.

           President and Sister Nelson Plan Visit to Pacific Northwest       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Joining the Nelsons for the Northwest devotionals will be President Henry B. Eyring, Second Counselor in the First Presidency.On Sunday, September 16, the Vancouver devotional will be held at the Langley Events Centre, in the Vancouver suburb of Langley. Both meetings are scheduled for 6 p.m.For that initial international foray into Europe and Asia, the Nelsons—joined by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Sister Patricia Holland—spoke in meetings held in London, England; Nairobi, Kenya; Harare, Zimbabwe; Jerusalem, Israel; Bengaluru, India; Bangkok, Thailand; Hong Kong; and Laie.This will be the Nelsons’ fourth major trip to meet with Church members in devotional settings since his ordination and sustaining as president of the Church, and his second devotional to be conducted outside of the state of Utah. The April 2018 Global Ministry Tour concluded with a devotional stop in Laie, Hawaii, while the Nelsons spoke in a June 3 worldwide youth devotional that originated from Salt Lake City.With its 10 provinces and three territories, Canada is home to nearly 200,000 members in 496 congregations as well as eight temples and seven missions, including the Vancouver Canada Temple and the Canada Vancouver Mission.The September 15 date could draw the largest in-person crowd in his first year as Church president—the Saturday evening event is slated to be held in Seattle’s Safeco Field, the 47,943 seat ballpark with a retractable roof that is home to the Seattle Mariners of Major League Baseball.Church statistics for the state of Washington include 288,515 members in 546 congregations as well as three temples and seven missions.

Đăng ngày 08-08-2018

Kinh tế Iran dưới sức ép của Donald Trump, thương mại Pháp thâm thủng nghiêm trọng, một người thợ làm vườn ở California làm run rẩy tập đoàn hóa chất đa quốc gia Monsanto là những tựa lớn của báo chí Pháp hôm nay bên cạnh hồ sơ « Trịnh Xuân Thanh bị Hà Nội đánh thuốc mê và bắt cóc », chiếm một phần ba trang quốc tế của Le Monde.

Ảnh chụp qua màn hình TV : Trịnh Xuân Thanh xuất hiện trên truyền hình Việt Nam nhận tự về nước đầu thú, ngày 03/08/2017.REUTERS/Kham

Cảnh sát Đức nắm đủ chứng cớ vụ bắt cóc Trịnh Xuân Thanh

Slovakia dính líu vào vụ bắt cóc một người Việt ở Đức. Trịnh Xuân Thanh rời châu Âu trong chiếc máy bay của bộ Nội Vụ Slovakia tựa của Le Monde. Nhật báo độc lập mô tả vụ việc này như một tiểu thuyết gián điệp với những nhân vật có thật như (cựu) bộ trưởng Nội Vụ Robert Kalinak, bộ trưởng Công An Tô Lâm, cố vấn thủ tướng Slovakia Lê Hồng Quang và Trịnh Xuân Thanh, một cán bộ cao cấp của đảng Cộng Sản Việt Nam bị thất sủng.

Theo các nhà điều tra Đức, nhờ vào sự giúp đỡ - tự nguyện hay không - của chính quyền Slovakia hồi tháng 07 năm 2017 mà mật vụ Việt Nam đã bắt cóc thành công nhân vật này lúc đó đang tị nạn tại Berlin. Hai tuần sau, Trịnh Xuân Thanh xuất hiện tại Việt Nam và sau đó, lãnh bản án chung thân với tội danh tham nhũng.

Tuy nhiên, cảnh sát Đức không tin vào luận điểm của Hà Nội, theo đó Trịnh Xuân Thanh « tự ý về Việt Nam để được xét xử ». Trong bản báo cáo, cảnh sát Đức ghi rõ « ông Thanh bị cưỡng chế rời không gian Schengen trên một chiếc phi cơ của chính phủ Slovakia ». Ba ngày sau khi mật vụ Việt Nam bắt cóc Trịnh Xuân Thanh ở Berlin, văn phòng bộ Nội Vụ Slovakia chấp thuận một yêu cầu của bộ trưởng Công An Việt Nam Tô Lâm.

Thông tin này, có dính líu đến cựu bộ trưởng Nội Vụ Robert Kalinak, do báo chí Đức loan tải, đã làm Slovakia, quốc gia thành viên của Liên Hiệp Châu Âu từ năm 2004, chới với, kinh ngạc. Bởi vì tai tiếng này xảy ra chỉ 5 tháng sau vụ phóng viên điều tra tham nhũng Jan Kuciak bị bắn chết. Nhà báo Jan Kuciak bị giết trong khi điều tra những mối quan hệ giữa xã hội đen và chính phủ liên minh dân túy cánh tả và cực hữu.

Trước sức ép của công luận qua các cuộc xuống đường trên khắp nước lên án đích danh, bộ trưởng Nội Vụ Robert Kalinak phải từ chức vào ngày 12/03/2018.

Tô Lâm xin Slovakia giúp máy bay ?

Trở lại vụ Trịnh Xuân Thanh vào thời điểm tháng 07 năm 2017, theo lời giải thích của ông Robert Kalinak thì ông được « ông Tô Lâm cho biết đang ở Praha chờ máy bay về Việt Nam nhưng chuyến bay bị hủy nên cần giúp đỡ máy bay để về gấp ». Thế là bộ Nội Vụ Slovakia cấp ngay cho ông Tô Lâm một chiếc phi cơ của bộ, bay đến Praha đón nhóm người Việt rồi bay về Bratislava thủ đô của Slovakia. Sau một cuộc tiếp xúc ngắn giữa Robert Kalinak và đồng nhiệm Tô Lâm tại một khách sạn, chiếc máy bay nói trên cất cánh bay sang Matxcơva. Đó là lời giải thích của cựu bộ trưởng Nội Vụ Slovakia.

Thế nhưng, báo chí Slovakia được một nhân chứng, sĩ quan cảnh sát Slovakia có nhiệm vụ bảo vệ an ninh cho đoàn Việt Nam. Viên cảnh sát này cho biết nhận được lệnh từ vụ trưởng vụ Lễ Tân của bộ Nội Vụ cho một người đàn ông độ 40 tuổi, bước chân loạng choạng, có hai người kèm hai bên, lên xe từ bãi đậu xe của bộ Nội Vụ chở ra phi trường Bratislava, lên máy bay đậu sẵn chở phái đoàn Việt Nam sang Matxcơva.

Thám tử điều tra của Đức gần như chắc chắn người đàn ông này là Trịnh Xuân Thanh, bị đánh ma túy nửa tỉnh nửa mê. Hai người đi kèm dìu hai bên là mật vụ Việt Nam. Chiếc xe « van » của toán đặc nhiệm Việt Nam đậu trước khách sạn Bôrik vào lúc Robert Kalinak và Tô Lâm gặp nhau đã được dữ liệu định vị GPS xác nhận. Chiếc xe này mang biển số Cộng Hoà Séc, trước đó được phát hiện ở Đức và ở nơi xảy ra vụ bắt cóc.

Một chi tiết khác, Lê Hồng Quang, một doanh nhân Việt mang quốc tịch Slovakia, cố vấn thủ tướng thời đó là Robert Fico, cũng có mặt trong chuyến bay từ Praha về Bratislava cùng với bộ trưởng Công An Việt Nam Tô Lâm. Lê Hồng Quang khi đó đang là đại biện ngoại giao sứ quán Slovakia tại Hà Nội.

Ẩn số

Câu hỏi đặt ra là vì sao vào thời điểm diễn ra vụ bắt cóc, bộ trưởng Robert Kalinak không chút thận trọng trước yêu cầu xin máy bay « trên trời rơi xuống » của đồng nhiệm Tô Lâm ?
Chính phủ Đức đã thông báo cho tất cả các nước thành viên trong không gian Schengen, trong đó có Slovakia, vụ Trịnh Xuân Thanh bị bắt cóc. Đã thế, chuyến thăm của Tô Lâm được tổ chức vào giờ chót, ba người đi hạng doanh nhân, một người đi hạng phổ thông vì hết chỗ. Bốn vé máy bay của phái đoàn được đặt mua vào ngày hôm trước ở Cộng hoà Séc, theo báo Dennik N.

Cứu danh dự Slovakia

Tổng thống Andrej Kiska, độc lập, cố gắng làm trong sạch hóa chế độ, yêu cầu điều tra đến nơi đến chốn và thúc giục đương kim bộ trưởng Nội Vụ từ chức vì bà này bị nghi ngờ cản trở điều tra để bao che cho người tiền nhiệm. Tai tiếng vụ Trịnh Xuân Thanh làm cho tổng thống Kiska lo âu cho danh tiếng của Slovakia trên trường ngoại giao châu Âu.

Trung Quốc gì cũng mua để phục hồi sinh lý : Sau tê giác đến da lừa
"Da lừa của Kenya giao cho yêu tinh Trung Quốc", đó là tựa bài phóng sự của Le Monde kèm theo bài xã luận tố cáo Bắc Kinh hủy diệt sinh thái châu Phi.

Sau khi sát hại gần hết giống lừa tại Hoa lục, từ 11 triệu con xuống còn 5 triệu, Trung Quốc tấn công vào Kenya. Quốc gia này là nước cuối cùng tại châu Phi còn bán da lừa cho Bắc Kinh mà hệ quả là chỉ trong vòng 8 năm, động vật kéo xe của dân nghèo đã giảm 50% từ 1,8 triệu xuống 900 ngàn. Trung Quốc mua da lừa để cà thành bột trị bệnh thiếu máu và tăng cường sinh lực tình dục.

Thấy đoàn động vật của mình sắp bị diệt chủng, nhiều nước châu Phi như Niger,Burkina Faso và Botswana cấm xuất khẩu sang Trung Quốc. Theo Le Monde, trong thế cờ kinh tế và đại chính trị, vụ da lừa chỉ là một chuyện nhỏ mà nạn nhân là loài gia súc bị hy sinh làm thần dược nhưng trên thực tế cho thấy châu Phi đã thành « vùng đất hứa » : "Trung Quốc khai thác tài nguyên thiên nhiên, dầu hỏa, uranium, kim loại tối cần để phát triển kinh tế mà còn biến châu lục đen này thành thị trường tiêu thụ hàng biến chế của Trung Quốc. Trong vòng không đầy 20 năm, trao đổi thương mại giữa Trung Quốc và châu Phi đã từ 10 tỷ đôla lên 200 tỷ".

Trước những mối lợi trước mắt, liệu Kenya có đủ sức khước từ để bảo vệ đoàn gia súc của mình hay không ? Từ hai thập niên nay, Trung Quốc là thị trường số một tiêu thụ ngà voi châu Phi cho dù từ 1989, cộng đồng quốc tế ngăn cấm. Đến năm 2015, Tập Cận Bình, cảm thấy cần phải đánh bóng thể diện quốc gia, đã ra lệnh cấm bán ngà voi. Thế nhưng lừa thì sao ?

Iran dưới sức ép củaDonald Trump
Trong bài xã luận « đánh cược Ba Tư », Le Figaro đặt câu hỏi « liệu trừng phạt có làm chế độ lung lay hay không ? ». Theo nhật báo cánh hữu, khác với Bắc Triều Tiên khép kín, Iran là một cường quốc cấp vùng, có quan hệ khắp Trung Cận đông do vậy ván cờ áp lực của Donald Trump có nhiều rủi ro. Tuy nhiên, không ai rõ là tổng thống thứ 45 của Mỹ tính gì. Ông đe dọa rồi lại mở cánh cửa đối thoại khi lệnh trừng phạt có hiệu lực. Điều rõ ràng duy nhất là Donald Trump nhắc nhở thế giới ai là « chủ nhân » và đẩy châu Âu vào thế phản đối vô vọng. Còn theo đặc phái viên ở Teheran, Iran đang « sắp chết ngạt ». Một trường hợp cụ thể là dưới sức ép của Mỹ, các ngân hàng nước ngoài từ chối tài trợ nhập khẩu, ngân hàng trung ương không có tiền mặt. Đồng tiền mất giá làm một doanh nhân bị lỗ 2 triệu đôla sau khi bán ra 200 thùng hàng mới nhập từ châu Á.

Châu Âu trả đũa yếu ớt
Tin bi quan thứ nhất tràn ngập báo chí Pháp là nhập siêu tăng kinh khủng : 33 tỷ euro trong sáu tháng đầu năm.

Tin bi quan thứ hai là trước lệnh trừng phạt Iran của Mỹ, Bruxelles gần như vô kế khả thi để bảo vệ doanh nghiệp châu Âu.

Iran : Liên Hiệp Châu Âu cố gắng chận lệnh trừng phạt của Mỹ, La Croix loan tin nhưng không mấy tin tưởng với tiểu tựa : Giới doanh nghiệp hoài nghi hiệu năng của luật châu Âu.
Les Echos cũng đưa tựa : Trả đũa yếu xìu của Bruxelles. Tại sao ? Bởi vì « luật ngăn chận trừng phạt » ban hành năm 1996 chưa bao giờ được sử dụng. Nguyên tắc là bảo vệ các công ty châu Âu bị Mỹ trừng phạt nhưng lại có điều khoản trừng phạt công ty tuân thủ lệnh cấm vận.

Về thời sự châu Á, Le Monde trở lại số phận của sắc tộc Rohingya - Miến Điện. Trong số hơn nửa triệu người tị nạn tại Bangladesh, có thể 100 ngàn người sẽ bị đưa ra một hải đảo trong vịnh Bengal. Tuy nhiên, Liên Hiệp Quốc kêu gọi Dacca suy xét lại bởi vì đây là nơi thường xuyên bị lũ lụt.

Trung Đông, ngoài Iran, vụ ám sát tiến sĩ vật lý người Syria tên Aziz Asber được Le Monde chú ý. Nhà khoa học này ít được biết đến nhưng là cột trụ của chương trình vũ khí chiến lược của Damas. Một nhóm thánh chiến tự nhận là thủ phạm gài mìn ám sát tối thứ Bảy nhưng theo Le Monde « đây là lần đầu tiên một chuyên gia vũ khí Syria bị thanh toán theo cách thức gần giống như chiến thuật của tình báo Israel ». Trái lại, đối lập Syria cho rằng giám đốc cơ quan nghiên cứu khoa học Syria bị chế độ thanh toán.

Các tài liệu mật của Pháp cho rằng chính cơ quan nghiên cứu khoa học này đóng vai trò then chốt trong việc chế tạo vũ khí hóa học mà quân đội Syria sử dụng tấn công đối lập võ trang và thường dân trong những vùng do đối lập kiểm sóat.

Châu chấu đá xe Monsanto
Liberation giới thiệu chân dung của một người Mỹ da đen, thợ làm vườn, đang làm rung chuyển tập đoàn hóa chất Mỹ Monsanto. Dewayne Johnson, 46 tuổi, bị ung thư sau ba năm sử dụng thuốc diệt cỏ, kiện tập đoàn hóa chất ra toà. Sau một tháng xét xử, toà án Caliornia sắp công bố phán quyết. Luật sư Brent Wisner của nguyên đơn có lập luận vững như bê tông :" tập đoàn hóa chất này chống lại khoa học và chỉ lưu tâm đến lợi nhuận kinh tế mà thôi". Luật sư cho biết là Monsanto có trong tay 3,1 tỷ đôla tiền mặt. Do vậy, ông sẽ hỏi thẩm phán « làm cách nào để trừng phạt một tập đoàn có nhiều tiền như thế ? Phạt bao nhiêu thì tập đoàn giàu có như thế xem là không đáng kể ? » Vị luật sư này cho biết tại Mỹ hiện có 4000 đơn kiện đang được thụ lý.

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit AILSA CHANG, HOST: Today marks the 20th anniversary of the U.S. Embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania. The State Department held a memorial event to remember the victims. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was not there, but he issued a written statement in which he vowed to remain vigilant. NPR's Michele Kelemen has more. MICHELE KELEMEN, BYLINE: On August 7, 1998, al-Qaida blew up the U.S. embassies in Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, killing more than 250 people and injuring hundreds more. Prudence Bushnell was the ambassador to Kenya at the time. (SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING) PRUDENCE BUSHNELL: This occurred three years before al-Qaida bombed our homeland. We are, in fact, a more dangerous place than we were. Our colleagues today face issues we didn't have to.

          2018. augusztus 9. – Csütörtök, a keresztről nevezett Szent Teréz Benedikta (Edith Stein) szűz és vértanú, Európa társvédőszentje (Jn 15,9–17)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Jézus így tanított az utolsó vacsorán: „Amint engem szeret az Atya, úgy szeretlek én is titeket. Maradjatok meg az én szeretetemben! Ha megtartjátok parancsaimat, megmaradtok szeretetemben, ahogy én is megtartottam Atyám parancsait, és megmaradok az ő szeretetében. Ezeket azért mondtam nektek, hogy az én örömöm legyen bennetek, és örömötök ezzel teljes legyen. Az az én parancsom, hogy szeressétek egymást, amint én szerettelek titeket! Nagyobb szeretete senkinek sincs annál, mint annak, aki életét adja barátaiért. Ti barátaim vagytok, ha megteszitek, amit parancsolok nektek. Nem mondalak titeket többé szolgának, mert a szolga nem tudja, mit tesz az ura. Barátaimnak mondalak benneteket, mert mindazt, amit hallottam Atyámtól, tudtul adtam nektek. Nem ti választottatok engem, hanem én választottalak titeket; és arra rendeltelek, hogy elmenjetek és gyümölcsöt hozzatok: maradandó gyümölcsöt. Bármit kértek az Atyától az én nevemben, megadja nektek. Azt parancsolom nektek, hogy szeressétek egymást!” Jn 15,9–17

Elmélkedés

Nem kell kiváló emberismerőnek lennünk ahhoz, hogy valakiben meglássuk a törekvést, hogy az élet teljességére vágyik, hiszen annak sugárzását könnyen észrevehetjük. Bár sokan nem gondolkodnak el komolyan azon, hogy mi az értelme és célja életüknek. Ezt egyáltalán nem tartják fontosnak, mégis nagyon sok emberben megfogalmazódik ez a kérdés, főként akkor, amikor valaki a fiatalságból átlép a felnőtt korba. S amikor folyamatosan kibontakozik előtte élete értelme és megteszi az első lépéseket a felismert úton, rögtön feltűnnek számára az akadályok, a nehézségek is. Jó, ha ilyenkor lelki támogatást adunk egy ilyen jószándékú fiatalnak!

Jézus szavai, amelyeket a mai evangéliumban olvasunk, ilyen bátorítást jelentenek azoknak, akik Isten szolgálatára szentelik életüket. Van-e nagyobb ösztönző erő annál, minthogy szolgálatunk hátterében ott áll Krisztus irántunk való szeretete? Van-e nagyobb öröm annál, mint amit Krisztustól kapunk? Van-e lelkesítőbb annál, minthogy utánozhatjuk az Urat a szeretetben? Van-e felemelőbb annál, minthogy életünket adhatjuk barátainkért? Van-e erősebb kapcsolat annál, mint hogy maga Krisztus nevez minket barátainak és valóban azok is vagyunk?

Istenért élni és embertársainkat szolgálni csak alázattal és szeretettel lehet. Legyen ebben példaképünk Krisztus!

(c) Horváth István Sándor

Imádság

Hálát adunk néked, Atyánk, az életért és tudásért, melyet kinyilatkoztattál nekünk a Te szolgád, Jézus által! Dicsőség néked mindörökké! Ahogyan e kenyértöredékek szét voltak szóródva a hegyeken és eggyé váltak összegyűjtve, úgy gyűljön össze egyházad királyságodban a Föld határairól! Mindenható Uralkodónk, ki mindent nevedért teremtettél, ételt és italt adtál az embereknek, hogy élvezzék, nekünk pedig lélek szerinti ételt és italt adtál, és örök életet Szolgád által. Dicsőség néked mindörökké!

"Nigella sativa"
A kerti katicavirág Nyugat-Ázsiából, Észak-Afrikából származik, Közép-Európában is helyenként termesztik. Egyéb megnevezései: termesztett katicavirág, fekete kömény, szőrös kandilla, termesztett vagy kerti kandilla, fekete hagymamag.
Leírása
20– 40 cm magasra megnövő, egyéves növény. Szórt állású levelei 2-3-szorosan szeldeltek, szálas-fonalasak. A magánosan, a szár vagy az oldalhajtások csúcsán elhelyezkedő virágok takarólevelei kékes vagy fehér színűek, ívesen behajló körömben végződnek. Öt mézfejtő szirma kettős csúcsú, pillás élű. Termőlevei kb. a közepükig szorosan összenőttek egymással. Az összenőtt, mirigyes tüszőtermésekben számos 2-2, 5 mm hosszúságú, enyhén lapított, ovális, sűrűn barázdált, fekete mag található.
Története
A magokat már az ókori Elő-Ázsiában és Egyiptomban is ismerték. Zohary és Hopf szerint az N. sativa termesztésével kapcsolatos régészeti eredmények még hiányosak, de az biztos, hogy a magok előkerültek több ókori egyiptomi ásatásról, köztük Tutanhamon síremlékéből is. [1] Bár pontos szerepe az egyiptomi kultúrában nem ismert, azt tudjuk, hogy a fáraóval együtt eltemetett tárgyakat úgy választották ki, hogy segítségére legyenek a túlvilágon.
A legkorábbi, a fekete hagymamagra utaló írásos emlék az ószövetségi Ézsaiás próféta könyvének 28: 25-27 szakaszában[2] található, ahol a fekete kömény (Károli-fordítás) és a búza aratását hasonlítják össze. Az Easton-féle bibliaszótár[3] szerint a héber ketsah szó határozottan az N. sativa növényre utal. Zohary és Hopf szerint az N. sativa az Óvilág hagyományos, széles körűen elterjedt ókori fűszere volt
Mindenre gyógyír, csak a halálra nem: feketemag
A legszuperebb mag
A Nigella Sativa növénymagok gyógyító tulajdonságait már évezredek óra ismeri az emberiség, csak a mai “ modern idők fogyasztói társadalma” nem tud róla. Angol nyelvű kultúrák római korianderként, fekete szezámmagként, fekete köményként is ismerik ezt a fekete színű magot. Egyébként neve pontosan leírja megjelenését.
A legkorábbi feljegyzés róla az ókori Egyiptomból származik. Fekete olajat Tutanhamon sírjában is találtak mintegy 3300 évvel ezelőtt. Az arab kultúrában fekete köményként is ismert mag “ az áldás magja. ” Az is érdekes, hogy az iszlám Mohamed próféta azt mondta rá, hogy ez a mag “ gyógyír minden betegségre, kivéve a halálra. ”
Az orvosbiológiai irodalomban 1964 óta 458 lektorált tanulmány hivatkozik áldásos hatásaira.
Ez a szerény, de rendkívül erős mag megöli a MRSA antibiotikum rezisztens (meticillin-rezisztens Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)) baktériumot, gyógyítja a vegyifegyver támadással mérgezett testet, segíti a cukorbetegek haldokló hasnyálmirigy béta-sejtjeinek regenerációját… mégis túl kevesen tudják, hogy létezik.
A (Nigella sativa) mag több egészségügyi problémára gyógyír, mint például:
Fájdalomcsillapító
Anti-bakteriális
Gyulladáscsökkentő
Fekélyellenes
Anti-kolinerg
Gombaölő
Csökkenti a magas vérnyomást
Antioxidáns
Görcsoldó Vírusölő
Hörgőtágító
Glükoneogenezis gátló (anti-diabetikus)
Májvédő Vérnyomáscsökkentő
Inzulin szenzitivizáló
Interferon indító
Leukotrién antagonista
Vesevédő
Tumor nekrózis faktor alfa-gátló
A feketemagról a további nagyon speciális egészségügyi előnyöket mutatták ki:
2. típusú cukorbetegség esetén:
két gramm fekete mag naponta szedve, csökkent reggeli glükózszinthez, csökkent inzulin rezisztenciához, fokozott béta-sejt-funkcióhoz és csökkent glikozilált hemoglobin (HbA1c) mennyiséghez vezetett.
Helicobacter pylori fertőzés esetén:
a feketemag klinikailag hasznos anti-H. pylori tevékenysége hasonló a H. pylori ellen egyébként használt hármas eradikációs terápiához.
Epilepszia:
a feketemagokról hagyományosan ismert görcsoldó tulajdonságuk is. Egy 2007-es, epilepsziás gyermekeket vizsgáló tanulmány úgy találta, hogy a feketemagok vizes kivonata jelentősen csökkentette a rohamok erősségét.
Magas vérnyomás:
vérnyomás-csökkentő hatást érhetünk el enyhe hipertónia esetén amennyiben 100 és 200 mg feketemag kivonatot fogyasztunk naponta kétszer, 2 hónapig.
Asztma:
a feketemagban lévő timokinon: az egyik fő aktív összetevő, magasabb rendű hatóanyag állati modellben bizonyítottan jobb, mint a flutikazon hatóanyagú asztma gyógyszerek.
Akkut tonsillopharyngitis:
többnyire vírusos eredetű mandula és garatgyulladás (pl. torokfájás) esetén a feketemag kapszula szignifikánsan enyhíti a torokfájdalmat, és csökkenti a fájdalomcsillapitók szükségességét.
Vegyifegyver támadás esetén:
egy randomizált, placebo-kontrollált humán vizsgálatban a vegyi fegyverek által megsérült betegekről úgy találták, hogy a feketemag forralt vizes kivonata javította légzésfunkciós vizsgálataik eredményeit, csökkentette a légúti tüneteket: a mellkasi zihálást és a szükséges gyógyszeres kezelést.
Vastagbélrák:
sejtes tanulmányok azt találták, hogy a feketemag kivonat felülmúlja a kemoágens 5 fluoruracil hatását, mégpedig sokkal magasabb biztonsági profillal. Állatokon végzett kutatások megállapították, hogy a feketemagolaj jelentős inhibitor vastagbélrák kialakulása ellen patkányoknál, megfigyelhető mellékhatás nélkül.
MRSA:
klinikai izolátumokban a feketemag antibakteriális aktivitását mérték a meticillin rezisztens Staphylococcus aureus baktérium ellen.
Gasztronómia
Magjának enyhén hagymaíze van, illata megtörve némileg a borsra és az szurokfűre emlékeztet. Elsősorban az arab, a török és az indiai konyha használja. Közép-Keleten sütemények, kenyérfélék tetejére szórják. Az indiaiaknál a bengáli ötfűszerkeverék (panch phoron, ???? ????? ) alkotóeleme, dhalokat, csatnikat ízesítenek vele. A török mesir édesség egyik összetevője.
Gyógyhatása
Hatóanyaga zsíros olaj, melyet linolsav és az olajsav gliceridjei alkotnak, és illóolaj. Kétszeresen telítetlen zsírsavakban gazdag.
Ázsiában, a Közel-Keleten, Afrikában évszázadokon át gyógyszerként használták. A légzőrendszer, a gyomor, a vese, máj betegségeit kezelték vele, a keringési és az immunrendszer megerősítésére használták, továbbá gyulladáscsökkentőként, érzéstelenítésre, antiallergénként stb.
Az iszlám a legnagyobb hatású gyógyító készítmények között tartja számon. Mohamed próféta állítólag egyszer kijelentette, hogy a fekete magvak a halálon kívül minden betegségre hatásosak, ahogy az egyik hadíszban is olvasható.
A közép-európai népi gyógyászatban felfúvódás ellen és a szoptatós anyák tejtermelésének fokozására használták.
Manapság a fekete köményből sajtolt olajat kapszulás kiszerelésben étrend-kiegészítőként ajánlják, a széleskörű gyógyhatásáról terjedő híradások tudományosan nem megalapozottak.
Tudományos kutatások
Olaja nigellonét tartalmaz, ami a kísérletek szerint megvédi a tengerimalacokat a hisztamin indukálta hörgőgörcstől (talán megmagyarázza használatát asztma, bronchitis és köhögés ellen).

“Mchezo unaofuata tunacheza na Rwanda hivyo tumefanya mazoezi mepesi ili kuhakikisha kuwa tunaibuka na ushindi utakaotufanya tuendelee kuongoza katika mpira wa miguu na hatimaye kuchukua ubingwa” Alisema Tamba.
Hata hivyo nchi za Rwanda, Kenya  na Uganda nazo zimeonyesha ushindani mkubwa baada ya kunyakua ushindi katika Mchezo wa Karate na mbio fupi huku wakiendelea kuchukua alama katika mpira wa mikono, pete na Karate.

JEDDAH: To foster local talents and in support of the Kingdom’s Vision 2030, the German-Saudi Arabian Liaison Office for Economic Affairs (GESALO) aims to find the best Saudi and Bahraini high-tech start-ups in the fields of smart cities, mobility/logistics, and insurance technology at the Start.Up! Germany Pitch Night at the Ritz-Carlton Bahrain on Sept. 6.
Following the success of the first German-Saudi Startup Competition in March, the winners of the Start.Up! Germany Pitch Night will be awarded fully sponsored participation in this year’s Start.Up! Germany Tour in Dusseldorf, Cologne, and the Ruhr area (Oct. 7-12, 2018), with a special welcoming day for Saudi and Bahraini start-ups in Berlin on Oct. 5.
“Providing a platform for local start-ups to unleash their innovative ideas and potential is one of our duties. In that regard, Start.up! Germany is the perfect meeting point of the old and new economy,” said GESALO Project Manager Fabian Zittlau.
Given the Kingdom’s rising ecosystem, start-ups from Saudi Arabia will participate in the tour for the first time. Last year, 46 start-ups from 16 countries such as Brazil, France, Kenya, Russia, and South Korea took part in last year’s roadshow through Germany’s innovation hubs.
The start-ups can expect a series of meetings and matchmakings with German and international investors, public institutions and companies such as Thyssenkrupp, Vodafone, Henkel, Trivago, WILO, Ergo, Evonik, KPMG and DB Schenker.
In addition to pitch events within the individual categories, various workshops are offered to all start-ups. Berlin and the Ruhr area are Germany’s startup hotspots: More than 44 percent of new businesses in Germany are founded in these regions, and 41 percent of venture capital is flowing to Berlin and the Ruhr area.
Saudi and Bahraini start-ups can submit their applications via presentation and/or video until Aug. 14. In Bahrain, the best candidates will compete against each other in a three-minute presentation in their personal categories in front of a high-level jury of company and association representatives from the three countries.
The most promising ideas and business models will qualify for the Start.Up! Germany Tour 2018. Registration is open to Saudi and Bahraini start-ups founded after Jan. 1, 2015, and which have at least one founder from the respective countries. Applications can be submitted at the following link: www.gesalo-startup.com.

Posted by Purnima Kochikar, Director, Google Play, Apps & Games

On Monday we released Android 9 Pie. As we continue to push the Android platform forward, we're always looking to provide new ways to distribute your apps efficiently, help people discover and engage with your work, and improve the overall security of our ecosystem. Google Play has had a busy year so far with some big milestones around helping you reach more users, including:

  • Shrinking download size: Android App Bundle & Dynamic Delivery has helped reduce app sizes by up to 65%, leading to increased downloads and fewer uninstalls.
  • Helpling improve quality: New tools in the Play Console have helped you reduce crash rates by up to 70%.
  • Improving discovery: Improvements to the discovery experience has increased Google Play Store visits by 30% over the last 12 months.
  • Keeping users safe: Google Play Protect scans more than 50 billion apps a day and Android API level 26 adoption requirements improve app security and performance.

Google Play is dedicated to helping you build and grow quality app businesses, reach the more than 2 billion Android devices globally and provide your users with better experiences. Here are some of the important areas we're prioritizing this year:

Innovative Distribution

We've added more testing tools to the popular Play Console to help developers de-risk app launches with internal and external test tracks and staged rollouts to get valuable early feedback. This year we've expanded the Start on Android program globally that provides developers new to Android additional guidance to optimize their apps before launch. Google Play Instant remains a huge bet to transform app discovery and improve conversions by letting users engage without the friction of installing. We're seeing great results from early adopters and are working on new places to surface instant experience, including ads, and making them easier to build throughout the year.

Improving App Quality

Google Play plays an important role helping developers understand and fix quality and performance issues. At I/O, we showcased how we expanded the battery, stability and rendering of Android vitals reporting to include app start time & permission denials, enabling developers to cut application not responding errors by up to 95%. We also expanded the functionality of automated device testing with the pre-launch report to enable games testing. Recently, we increased the importance of app quality in our search and discovery recommendations that has resulted in higher engagement and satisfaction with downloaded games.

Richer Discovery

Over the last year we've rolled out more editorial content and improved our machine learning to deliver personalized recommendations for apps and games that engage users. Since most game downloads come from browsing (as opposed to searching or deep linking into) the store, we've put particular focus on games discovery, with a new games home page, special sections for premium and new games, immersive video trailers and screenshots, and the ability to try games instantly. We've also introduced new programs to help drive app downloads through richer discovery. For example, since launching our app pre-registration program in 2016, we've seen nearly 250 million app pre-registrations. Going forward, we'll be expanding on these programs and others like LiveOps cards to help developers engage more deeply with their audience.

Expanding Commerce Platform

Google Play now collects payments in 150 markets via credit card, direct carrier billing (DCB), Paypal, and gift cards. Direct carrier billing is now enabled across 167 carriers in 64 markets. In 2018, we have focused on expanding our footprint in Africa and Latam with launches in Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Nigeria, Peru & Colombia. And users can now buy Google Play credit via gift cards or other means in more 800,000 retail locations around the world. This year, we also launched seller support in 18 new markets bringing the total markets with seller support to 98. Our subscription offering continues to improve with ML-powered fraud detection and even more control for subscribers and developers. Google Play's risk modeling automatically helps detect fraudulent transactions and purchase APIs help you better analyze your refund data to identify suspicious activity.

Maintaining a Safe & Secure Ecosystem

Google Play Protect and our other systems scan and analyze more than 50 billion apps a day to keep our ecosystem safe for users and developers. In fact, people who only download apps from Google Play are nine times less likely to download a potentially harmful app than those who download from other sources. We've made significant improvements in our ability to detect abuse—such as impersonation, inappropriate content, fraud, or malware—through new machine learning models and techniques. The result is that 99% of apps with abusive content are identified and rejected before anyone can install them. We're also continuing to run the Google Play Security Rewards Program through a collaboration with Hacker One to discover other vulnerabilities.

We are continually inspired by what developers build—check out #IMakeApps for incredible examples—and want every developer to have the tools needed to succeed. We can't wait to see what you do next!


          Investor Singapura Minat Kembangkan Pariwisata di Bakauheni Lampung      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Investor asing diketahui tertarik untuk mengembangkan sektor pariwisata di kawasan Bakauheni, Lampung. Keberadaan innvestor ini diharapkan dapat menunjang sektor pariwisata di daerah tersebut.

"Minggu depan kita ketemu calon investor orang Singapura yang koordinasi di sini sudah ada pembicaraan. Kami ingin Bakauheni menjadi destinasi pelabuhan, di seberang ini ada 76 hektare," kata Direktur Utama PT ASDP Indonesia Ferry (Persero) Ira Puspadewi di Lampung, seperti dikutip Kamis (9/8/2018).

Dia berharap Bakauheni bisa menjadi destinasi wisata menarik karena memiliki lahan yang luas dan pemandangan yang cantik.

"Itu (di Lampung) ada puncak, ada siger itu topi orang Lampung, nah itu bisa paralayang destinasi wisata," sambung dia.

Ira menambahkan, sejauh ini pihaknya masih terus melakukan pendekatan terhadap investor asal Singapura tersebut. Demikian pula nilai investasi yang akan ditanamkan masih pada tahap negosiasi.

Diketahui, ASDP  saat ini telah membangun terminal eksekutif berkonsep modern yang berada di Merak-Bakauheni. Keberadaan terminal ini diharapkan dapat menunjang sektor pariwisata.

Di dalam terminal ini akan menghadirkan layanan hotel, restoran, retail, perkantoran, dan area komersial dengan desain interior yang megah.

Selain itu, ASDP juga tengah menghadirkan layanan kapal eksekutif yang ditargetkan nantinya dapat menempuh lintasan Merak-Bakauheni dengan waktu berlayar selama satu jam.

Untuk kapal eksekutif, ASDP sendiri merejuvinasi interior sejumlah kapal yang beroperasi di Merak-Bakauheni menjadi kapal yang memiliki nuansa berbeda dengan kapal ferry pada umumnya, baik dari segi fasilitas maupun kenyamanan yang lebih baik.

Jenis kapal yang dioperasikan adalah kapal roro (roll on roll off) dengan ukuran 13.000 GT dan 15.000 GT dan kapasitas penumpang 200 ribu orang.

"Mungkin harapan kami itu menjadi theme park sehingga kapal kita sudah menjadi experience orang biasanya naik mobil baru sampa safari. Nah ini udah naik kapal sebentar kapalnya asik experience lah kita lagi develop," pungkas Ira.

          We Found This 20-Year-Old T-Shirt In Kenya. The Internet Found The Original Owner      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
We recently published a story about how used clothes that get donated in the U.S. often wind up for sale in markets in Africa. As part of the story, we published some photos of used T-shirts we found in a couple of markets in Kenya. One shirt in particular caught our eye: The shirt had a name inside it (Rachel Williams) and a bat mitzvah date (Nov. 20, 1993). We wanted to close the loop — to find Rachel Williams, and Jennifer of "Dancing with the Toons" fame. So Tuesday, we threw up the Internet bat signal and asked for help tracking down Rachel and Jennifer . Adam Soclof of JTA , a Jewish news service, saw a post about our search and set out to find Rachel Williams. He used Facebook Graph Search to look for people named Rachel Williams who had a friend named Jennifer, who would have been about 13 in 1993, and with whom he shared common Facebook friends. The first Rachel he tried was not the Rachel we were looking for. But he found the right Rachel on the second try: Rachel, super
          What Happens When You Just Give Money To Poor People?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
For more of our reporting on this story, please see our work in The New York Times Magazine and on This American Life . A couple of months ago, we reported on a charity called GiveDirectly that's trying to help poor people in the developing world in an unusual way: by sending them money with no strings attached. The idea behind this is simple. Poor people know what they need, and if you give them money they can buy it. But to some veterans of the charity world, giving cash is worrisome. When we first reported on this we spoke with Carol Bellamy, who used to run UNICEF, and who said people might spend the money on things like alcohol or gambling. To see whether this was actually happening, researchers did an experiment. They surveyed people in Kenya who received money from GiveDirectly, and a similar group of people who didn't get money. The results from the study are encouraging, says Johannes Haushofer, an economist at MIT's Poverty Action Lab who was one of the study's co-authors.

          GST Dirompak? Jelas LGE Tak Faham Maksud Akaun Disatukan      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   



Menteri Kewangan membuat dakwaan kononnya BN mencuri wang tuntutan GST. Sebagaimana kenyataannya sebelum ini, Guan Eng sekali lagi mengambil kesempatan dari kekurangan pengetahuan orang ramai terhadap bagaimana sesebuah kerajaan berfungsi untuk membuat serangan politik.
Alasan utama Guan Eng kononnya wang tuntutan GST dirompak adalah kerana wang kutipan GST dibayar ke dana disatukan (consolidated fund) kerajaan dan bukan di dalam akaun amanah tuntutan GST.
Rang Undang Undang GST yang kemudiannya menjadi Akta GST dibentangkan di Parlimen di mana Guan Eng turut hadir di mana akta itu menjelaskan dengan terperinci mekanisme kutipan GST.
Sebagaimana pendapatan dari cukai lain, kutipan GST dibayar ke dalam dana disatukan kerajaan. Berdasarkan kepada nasihat kastam, satu jumlah diperuntukkan bagi tuntutan GST yang kemudiannya disalurkan ke dalam akaun amanah.
Mekanisme yang sama turut digunakan negara lain yang sudah melaksanakan GST termasuk Singapura. Seksyen II, Bab 5 Akta GST Singapura menyatakan:
“5. (1) Pelaksana adalah bertanggungjawab secara amnya untuk melaksanakan peruntukan akta ini dan bagi kutipan cukai dan perlu membayar kesemua jumlah yang dikutip ke dalam Dana Disatukan.”
Kerajaan Singapura turut meletakkan kutipan GST mereka di dalam akaun disatukan sebagaimana kerajaan Malaysia.
Adakah ini bermakna parti PAP Singapura turut mencuri dari wang tuntutan GST mereka?
Bagi kenyataan Guan Eng kononnya ‘BN mencuri wang tuntutan GST’ adalah bermakna tiada satu pun syarikat daripada beratus ribu syarikat di Malaysia pernah menerima wang tuntutan GST mereka.
Adakah masuk akal, selepas tiga tahun, tiada satu pun daripada beratus ribu syarikat ini menyatakan secara terbuka yang BN ‘mencuri’ wang tuntutan GST mereka dan mereka tak pernah menerima wang tuntutan itu?
Ya, memang ada kejadian di mana kerajaan lewat membayar tuntutan GST terutama ketika GST baru dilaksanakan. Tetapi kelewatan itu diperbaiki dan pada masa sama peniaga mula memahami bagaimana GST berfungsi.
Kebanyakan kelewatan itu adalah ekoran dokumen tidak lengkap dari pemohon tuntutan wang GST. Dalam kebanyakan kes, tuntutan diimbangi dengan GST yang perlu dibayar syarikat.
Maka, anda perlu berhati hati dengan apa yang keluar dari mulut Menteri Kewangan anda. Kebanyakan kenyataannya tidak 100 peratus boleh diyakini atau benar kerana kebolehannya ialah membuat tuduhan dan bermain politik.
Tonton bagaimana Menteri Kewangan anda terjerit-jerit dalam Dewan Rakyat dan ramai yang tidak mempunyai pengetahuan mengenai bagaimana sesebuah kerajaan berfungsi, terperdaya.
Jadilah rakyat yang berilmu. – Kredit RakyatReport FB

          Cara Membuat Klepon yang Mudah dan Lezat, Isi Gula Merah dan Berbagai Varian Lainnya      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Berbicara tentang jajanan pasar tradisional khas Indonesia memang tidak akan ada habisnya. Kudapan khas yang kerap kali dijual di pasar akan selalu punya banyak peminat. Bahkan, di era media sosial dan teknologi, jajanan pasar justru makin lestari keberadaanya.

Dari berbagai macam jajanan pasar tradisional khas Indonesia seperti; bikang, onde-onde, lumpia, tahu isi, pisang goreng, apem, cenil, risoles, cucur, dadar gulung, dan masih banyak lainnya, ada jajanan pasar tradisional nggak kalah populer dengan jajanan-jajanan yang sudah disebutkan tadi, ialah klepon.

Klepon, salah satu dari sekian ribu macam jajanan pasar tradisional yang ada di Indonesia yang siap memanjakan lidah Anda dengan rasanya yang manis legit. Makanan ini terbuat dari tepung beras ketan yang diberi pewarna hijau atau putih, kemudian diisi dengan gula merah lalu dibentuk bola-bola kecil yang direbus dalam air mendidih. Terakhir kemudian dibaluri dengan parutan kelapa. Klepon tidak hanya ditemui di Indonesia saja, bahkan Malaysia, Brunai, dan Singapura juga ada.

Penamaan klepon sendiri hanya di daerah Jawa. Di daerah Sumatra dan Malaysia, klepon lebih dikenal dengan sebutan Onde-onde. Padahal jika di Jawa, onde-onde merupakan jajanan yang terbuat dari tepung beras berisi adonan kacang hijau yang dibaluri biji wijen dan kemudian digoreng. Karena perbedaan penamaan itulah terkadang sering terjadi kesalahpahaman dan kerancuan ketika menyebut dan mengartikan onde-onde.

Kita memang lebih terbiasa melihat klepon yang berwarna hijau, namun kini seiring dengan perkembangan jaman dan agar klepon tidak tergerus, maka sudah banyak penjual yang menjual klepon dengan warna lainnya atau dibuat warna-warni bisa juga disebut klepon pelangi. Bahkan isinya kini tidak lagi hanya gula merah, ada yang diisi dengan coklat, strawberry, nanas, dan masih banyak lagi.

Harga klepon memang murah, maka tak jarang jika banyak orang yang memilih membeli daripada membuatnya. Tapi tidak ada salahnya mencoba membuat klepon sendiri di rumah. Berikut cara membuat klepon seperti yang dilansir Liputan6.com pada Rabu (8/8/2018) dari Merdeka.com.

          Cara Membuat Klepon yang Mudah dan Lezat, Isi Gula Merah dan Berbagai Varian Lainnya      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta Berbicara tentang jajanan pasar tradisional khas Indonesia memang tidak akan ada habisnya. Kudapan khas yang kerap kali dijual di pasar akan selalu punya banyak peminat. Bahkan, di era media sosial dan teknologi, jajanan pasar justru makin lestari keberadaanya.

Dari berbagai macam jajanan pasar tradisional khas Indonesia seperti; bikang, onde-onde, lumpia, tahu isi, pisang goreng, apem, cenil, risoles, cucur, dadar gulung, dan masih banyak lainnya, ada jajanan pasar tradisional nggak kalah populer dengan jajanan-jajanan yang sudah disebutkan tadi, ialah klepon.

Klepon, salah satu dari sekian ribu macam jajanan pasar tradisional yang ada di Indonesia yang siap memanjakan lidah Anda dengan rasanya yang manis legit. Makanan ini terbuat dari tepung beras ketan yang diberi pewarna hijau atau putih, kemudian diisi dengan gula merah lalu dibentuk bola-bola kecil yang direbus dalam air mendidih. Terakhir kemudian dibaluri dengan parutan kelapa. Klepon tidak hanya ditemui di Indonesia saja, bahkan Malaysia, Brunai, dan Singapura juga ada.

Penamaan klepon sendiri hanya di daerah Jawa. Di daerah Sumatra dan Malaysia, klepon lebih dikenal dengan sebutan Onde-onde. Padahal jika di Jawa, onde-onde merupakan jajanan yang terbuat dari tepung beras berisi adonan kacang hijau yang dibaluri biji wijen dan kemudian digoreng. Karena perbedaan penamaan itulah terkadang sering terjadi kesalahpahaman dan kerancuan ketika menyebut dan mengartikan onde-onde.

Kita memang lebih terbiasa melihat klepon yang berwarna hijau, namun kini seiring dengan perkembangan jaman dan agar klepon tidak tergerus, maka sudah banyak penjual yang menjual klepon dengan warna lainnya atau dibuat warna-warni bisa juga disebut klepon pelangi. Bahkan isinya kini tidak lagi hanya gula merah, ada yang diisi dengan coklat, strawberry, nanas, dan masih banyak lagi.

Harga klepon memang murah, maka tak jarang jika banyak orang yang memilih membeli daripada membuatnya. Tapi tidak ada salahnya mencoba membuat klepon sendiri di rumah. Berikut cara membuat klepon seperti yang dilansir Liputan6.com pada Rabu (8/8/2018) dari Merdeka.com.

          Don Lemon Reveals Trump Called Him 'Racist' for the Most Absurd Reason      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The president has a long history of attacking black Americans.

CNN anchor Don Lemon has been a frequent target of Donald Trump's puffy wrath of late. Discussing the attacks on-air with his other CNN anchors, Lemon revealed that Trump's antipathy toward him has been both long-lasting and pointedly race-based; after a 2011 interview in which Trump was asked to defend his crackpot claims that President Barack Obama was not actually an American citizen, Trump fumed at him for the pointed questions.

“He vowed that he would never do an interview with me because he said I was racist, because I challenged him on an in-factual statement, a lie.”

“[Trump said] you’re a racist?” a confounded Dana Bash asked.

“That I was racist because of the way that I challenged him,” Lemon confirmed. “Much in the way that he thought that I can’t be unbiased about an issue concerning race, like Judge Curiel, because I’m African-American. So he accused me of being racist.”

If anything, this should perhaps be a reminder that Donald Trump was already a pudding-headed piece of crap all the way back in 2011, which we already knew from the moment he proclaimed himself god-king of the "birther" movement, a theory peddled by especially dimwitted racists that the nation's first non-white president was not actually an American citizen at all, but a Kenyan national spirited into the country in a plan (facilitated by fake Hawaiian birth records) to eventually someday become a secret Muslim Kenyan president.

And he's been calling black Americans "racist" for standing up to him for at least that long as well.

Don't everyone act surprised at once, now.

          Pacari HyunA, E'Dawn Hindari Tatap Muka dengan Penggemar?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Seoul - Setelah sempat membantah, HyunA dan E'Dawn akhirnya mengakui hubungan asmara mereka yang sudah terjalin selama dua tahun. Keduanya sempat menyembunyikan hal ini lantaran takut berdampak negatif kepada karier mereka.

Kekhawatiran ini tampaknya mulai jadi kenyataan. Beberapa aktivitas Triple H—trio yang digawangi HyunA, E'Dawn dan Hui PENTAGON—dibatalkan. 

"Benar bahwa penampilan mereka di Music Core, Inkigayo, serta acara fan sign dibatalkan. Promosi untuk album mereka berakhir di acara Music Bank (4 Agustus)," kata perwakilan dari Cube Entertainment baru-baru ini.

Rabu (8/8/2018) kemarin, para penggemar kembali menerima kabar bahwa E'Dawn tidak akan menghadiri aktivitas bersama PENTAGON dalam waktu dekat.

Fan Meeting Jepang

"Karena masalah internal, E'Dawn tidak akan berpartisipasi dalam kegiatan Jepang PENTAGON yang akan datang, dimulai dengan jumpa penggemar yang dijadwalkan pada 18 Agustus. Kami minta maaf dan meminta pengertian dari kalian," kata juru bicara Cube Entertainment.

White Fascists of Antifa attack black and Hispanic police who were protecting a black woman who was just eating her breakfast

Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens are outspoken leaders of the pro-Trump super PAC Turning Point USA. But on Monday morning, they were hungry diners who showed up at Philadelphia’s Green Eggs Cafe in Midtown before it opened and managed to nab a window seat.

The pair barely had time to peruse the menu before people – apparently demonstrators – started jeering at them from other tables, Malik Joe, the Green Eggs Cafe’s manager, told The Washington Post.

Outside their window, they could see a large group of protesters approaching the restaurant, flanked by police.

The protesters “were screaming at one guy sitting in the window and I looked and he was laughing...the protesters were screaming ‘white supremacist’ and something about immigrants.”

Mr Joe said the protesters also flung food and objects.

At some point, Ms Owens pulled out her phone. She tweeted the scene from inside and outside the restaurant, including the moment when one demonstrator dumped a cup of something onto Mr Kirk’s head.

“Charlie Kirk and I just got ATTACKED and protested by ANTIFA for eating breakfast,” Ms Owens wrote a short time later. “They are currently following us through Philly. ALL BLACK AND HISPANIC police force protecting us as they scream.”

Bozell: Socials Banning InfoWars 'Not Just a Slippery Slope, It's a Dangerous Cliff'

Media Research Center (MRC) President Brent Bozell issued the following statement Monday in response to Facebook, Apple and Spotify removing "The Alex Jones Show" and other InfoWars content. In April, MRC released an extensive report detailing censorship by social media companies.

MRC President Brent Bozell:

“I don’t support Alex Jones and what InfoWars produces. He’s not a conservative. However, banning him and his outlet is wrong. It’s not just a slippery slope, it’s a dangerous cliff that these social media companies are jumping off to satisfy CNN and other liberal outlets.

“This is part of a disturbing trend. In recent months top conservative congressmen have been shadowbanned on Twitter. Pro-life and pro-gun posts and videos are often removed on several platforms. Liberal journalists even objected to one conservative outlet attending a meeting with Facebook. Several conservative organizations like Live Action, the NRA and even the Christian satire site Babylon Bee have complained they had posts removed or censored.

“Social media sites are supposedly neutral platforms, but they are increasingly becoming opportunities for the left and major media to censor any content that they don’t like. The lack of transparency is also problematic and, as of this release, Facebook, Apple and Spotify have provided no detailed explanation for the ban.

“Conservatives are increasingly concerned that InfoWars is not the end point for those who want to ban speech. It’s just the beginning. We are rapidly approaching a point where censorship of opposing voices is the norm. That’s dangerous.”

How We’ve Robbed a Generation of Hobbies, Joy, and Creativity

Dennis Prager   

If you ask most young people today if they have any hobbies, you will receive one of four answers:

1. “No.”

2. “What do you mean?”

3. “Yeah. I play video games/watch TV/watch movies.”

4. “Yeah…” and then they may actually cite a hobby.

The fourth is the least common.

Dan Scotti, lifestyle writer at the website Elite Daily, and a millennial, wrote a perceptive piece on the matter titled, “Why Don’t Millennials Have Hobbies Anymore?”

“None of my friends have hobbies,” Scotti wrote. And he was honest enough to include himself in this assessment:

With a pair of iPhone speakers and a Netflix subscription, I rarely feel as though I’m missing out on anything. … It’s as if modern technology has fooled me into thinking my life is very fulfilling. I mean, I have social media accounts to uphold, television series to chain watch, and a whole bunch of dating profiles to swipe through—so, what time do I even have for hobbies?

He concludes:

The fact that hobbies may be a thing of the past is an eerie thought. I can’t honestly say that I see hobbies such as “carpentry” making a comeback at any time in the near future. … As sad as it may seem to older generations, we genuinely have an interest in Instagram, Twitter, and other products of the digital age.

Clearly, you don’t have to be a member of the “older generations” to think this sad.

Here’s why.

There is a world of difference between being active and being passive, between creating something and watching something, between doing something and being entertained.

I’m not picking on millennials. The problem is not new. In 1984, Neil Postman wrote a book whose title said it all: “Amusing Ourselves to Death.” It’s as relevant today as it was in 1984.

The question, then, is what, if anything, can we do about this?

Parents need to cultivate hobbies or, if you will, passions in their child. The only passion most middle-class and upper-class parents cultivate in their children is getting good grades so that they can get into a prestigious college.

But that is misguided. If the most important passion you cultivate in your child is getting good grades, what will your child’s most important passion be after leaving school—in other words, for the next 70 years of his or her life?

Schools are complicit. By adding more and more homework hours over the years (which has accomplished nothing; if online communications are indicative, most students leave high school today far less well-educated and proficient in basic skills than high school graduates of decades ago), they deprive children of time to develop a hobby.

After hours of homework, parents understandably want to allow their child time to unwind. And what more convenient way to unwind than by watching a screen—whether a smartphone screen, a computer screen, or a big screen?

How can parents cultivate interests, hobbies, and passions in their child?

Most importantly, they can limit time spent in front of a screen. And the earlier in life the better. Then the child has to figure out what to do with the time he or she would have spent in front of the screen.

If I may offer a personal example, when I was in eighth grade, I refused to do almost any homework. My mother was certain—no exaggeration—I’d end up in jail.

But while my parents could not force me to do homework, they could enforce a limit on my television watching: one hour a night. So, they asked, what would I do with the rest of my after-school hours?

Solely as a result of that dilemma, the idea arose that I learn to play a musical instrument (my older brother, who did all his homework, never took up a musical instrument).

Thanks to that decision, I learned to read music, fell in love with classical music, taught myself to read orchestral scores, and for the last 25 years, have periodically conducted orchestras (including twice in the last year at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles). All thanks to little TV and little homework in eighth grade.

Instead of doing homework or watching television, I also started reading—newspapers, serious magazines, and books—which has remained a lifelong passion.

I might add that among my peers who spent their non-leisure time studying for tests and doing homework, not many ended up loving reading. Why? Because they read solely for school and grades rather than for the love of learning.

Technology, excessive homework, and the demise of God, religion, and love of country—these have all left a generation bereft of passions beyond amusement and getting good grades.

Parents need to ask themselves if this troubles them. And if it does, decide to do something about it—by first asking themselves what they really want for their child.

Intolerance spreads as cultural censors shut down ‘dangerous’ debate

Comment from Australia:

Social media and reporting of it in mainstream news are producing intolerance not seen since anti-communist senator Joe McCarthy and the House Un-American Activities Committee in the 1940s and 50s.

The free-thinking rebelliousness of the 60s grew out of a backlash against McCarthyist repres­sion of what was regarded as sedi­tious activities, literature, plays and movies inspired by com­munism to undermine American values.

Today it is the storm troopers of the student Left and musicians and actors who lead a daily barrage of threats against people whose free thought they can’t tolerate.

Usually these involve “look-at-me” verbal violence against US President Donald Trump for ­do­ing in office exactly what he promised to do before the 2016 presi­dential election.

Public outbursts of moral outrage by multi-millionaire stars such as Madonna or Robert De Niro show just how intolerant parts of the modern Left are.

While intimidation of Australia’s politicians falls far short of anti-Trump hysteria, there is among students, artists, journalists and political activists an increasing intolerance here, too.

In the past month activists have tried to prevent Canadian conservative Lauren Southern staging public events; a writers festival has sought to exclude Germaine Greer and Bob Carr because of their “unsafe” views; a prominent ABC host has written a column to defend the presence of the occasional conservatives on The Drum; and mainstream media personalities have tried to dismiss reporting of African crime gangs in Melbourne.

Southern, 23, a Canadian journalist, is described as alt-right by critics but sees herself as libertarian. She is accused of racism for saying what many people privately think about unauthorised mass migration, mainly by Muslims from Africa and Syria.

She was billed $68,000 by Victoria Police for security at a $750-a-head rally on July 20 in Somerton, 20km north of the Melbourne CBD. Last week police prevented Southern from walking on a public footpath past the Lakemba Mosque in Sydney’s western suburbs for fear her presence might provoke violence by Muslim worshippers.

Both incidents seem to reverse the onus of civic responsibility. Why were police not protecting Southern’s right to free assembly in Melbourne, or to walk freely about suburban Sydney? Why in Brisbane on July 29 did police warn she could be fined if any police were injured if she persisted with attempts to interview protesters outside her Brisbane Convention Centre rally?

Shutting down of other people’s opinions is counter-productive. Surely after the Brexit and Trump votes anti-racist protesters should realise worldwide concern about immigration cannot be sil­enced by intimidation. In democracies voters get their own back.

The withdrawal of invitations to Carr and Greer by the Brisbane Writers Festival is even more troubling for free thought. Southern is a provocateur, for sure, but Carr and Greer are intellectuals whose books should be discussed even by people who dislike their ideas, as I do.

Richard Flanagan, 2014 Man Booker Prize winning Tasmanian author of The Narrow Road to the Deep North, published a blistering response to the festival’s decision in Guardian Australia on July 29. “A writer, if they are doing their work properly, rubs against the grain of conventional thinking. Writers are often outcasts, heretics and marginalised. Once upon a time writers festivals celebrated them, and with them the values of intellectual freedom,” he argued.

Flanagan went on to criticise the same festival’s 2016 handling of US author Lionel Shriver after a fiery blog by former ABC personality Yassmin Abdel-Magied, who had heard only a third of Shriver’s presentation but accused her of laying the foundations “for genocide”.

“For Shriver the talk was about the damage identity politics could do to writing. For her critics it was about belittling the movement against cultural appropriation,” Flanagan wrote. Whatever your view, the debate was important, but Flanagan says “the BWF betrayed Shriver when she was at her most vulnerable”. As a fan of her writing, I agree.

“The Shriver controversy was the first time Australian writers festivals began to feel like a foreign country occupied by a strange regime, hostile to what writers stand for,” Flanagan wrote.

Carr is probably being dropped because of his sympathy with China and Greer because of comments suggesting not all rapes are equally serious and some should be considered “non-consensual … bad sex” as most “don’t involve any injury whatsoever”. Apparently the gentle “Volk” of Brisbane will not feel “safe” hearing such things.

Well here’s the rub. “Writers festivals, like … (literary) prizes have … become less … about books and more … about using their … power to enforce the new orthodoxies, to prosecute social and political agendas”, Flanagan wrote

Even the ABC is facing intolerance from the Left.

Julia Baird, part-time host of The Drum, used her column in The Sydney Morning Herald on July 28 to call out social media intimidation she was receiving for supposedly privileging panellists from the Institute of Public Affairs. Baird said the show had included only three IPA appearances this year, two by the same person.

Now the IPA, even though supported by big businesses and Australia’s richest woman, Gina Rinehart, is not the Ku Klux Klan. It was founded in 1943 by Charles Denton Kemp, father of Howard government ministers Rod and David Kemp. Although associated with free-market economic policies in recent decades, it was very much a Keynesian institution until the early 70s.

Wrote Baird: “The art of persuasion has been thoroughly trounced by polemic in public debate. Online, in comments sections, in staccato bursts of hate and attack, in the citing of feelings over facts, we see people shoving pillows over divergent views and trying to stop them being aired at all.”

She complained about the Twitter campaign to silence the IPA on The Drum. Just exactly what are Twitter’s twits afraid of? On subjects from migration to power prices, climate change and taxation reform, many on the uneducated Twitter Left would benefit from hearing well-argued conservative views. They might even learn why voters around the world disagree with most social media pieties.

The worst example of left-wing censoring of debate last month concerned opinion-makers from Waleed Aly to ABC journalists Jon Faine and Virginia Trioli trying to shut down discussion of Mel­bourne’s African gang violence. No amount of fudging the figures will change the fact this is a real issue and Africans are overrepresented in crime statistics, even if total numbers reflect the small African population.

Yet Aly said on Ten’s The Project on July 19: “If there really are a bunch of African gangs, frankly I am offended to not at least have been asked to join one.” His eight-minute segment was praised, of course, on social media.

Victims of gang crime who can’t afford the salubrious and safe suburbs inhabited by privileged members of the commentariat will just feel more isolated. No African migrants will be helped.

Extremist Persecution of Christians, 2018

The Slaughter of Christians in Egypt

Three masked gunmen targeted and killed Bassem Attallah, a Christian man, 27, after identifying him as a Christian by the cross tattoo on his wrist. According to his older brother, Osama, 38, the siblings and a Muslim colleague, Muhammad, were walking home after work when three armed men, aged between 23 and 25 stopped them. "We thought they were policemen because they weren't masked... They were wearing black jackets," Osama recalled. "They approached us and asked Bassem to show them the wrist of his right hand, and when they saw the tattoo of the cross, they asked him: 'Are you Christian?' Bassem answered 'Yes, I am Christian,' and repeated that again in a loud voice."

The men then asked Muhammad his name and to show them his wrist. They saw no cross and allowed him to leave. On learning Osama's name, which is popular among Muslims, and not seeing any cross tattoos on his wrist, they also allowed him to leave. "And then they shot Bassem in the head. I could not believe what happened to my brother. He fell on the ground in front of me and I was unable to do anything.... We lost a person dear to our hearts. My brother Bassem was a very good and kind man. He had a strong relationship with God. He was always reading in the Bible, praying and going to the church. He was loved by all people," said his grieving brother. The murder took place in Al-Arish, Sinai, which in recent years has been the scene of many attacks on Christians—including the murder of two priests and the mass upheaval of Christian villages.

Separately, on New Year's Day, which the Muslim calendar does not recognize or celebrate, two Christian brothers were gunned down in public by a masked man on a motorcycle. While they died en route to a hospital, the murderer escaped. At the time of the attack, they were near Christian friend's store, which sold liquor. Coptic-owned stores that sell liquor have been targeted by those who consider alcohol haram, or forbidden by Islam. Almost one year to the day, on January 3, 2017, a Muslim man sneaked up behind a Christian shop owner in Egypt and slit his throat for selling alcohol.

Finally, more details concerning the Islamist terror attack on a Coptic church on December 29, which left nine dead, continued to emerge. One mother sacrificed herself to save her two young daughters. Nermin Sadik, 32, was walking her two daughters, aged 11 and 7, to Sunday school, when one of the gunmen ran up to her. When she realized what was happening and that he was about to open fire, she flung her daughters away and received a bullet. When the terrorist turned on the two girls, their mother, "with her last breath held them between her arms to protect them from flying bullets," says the report. Although the girls survived the ordeal, in the end their mother's body had several bullets in it. Speaking after the tragedy, Nermin's widower said his wife, who was a nurse, "was affectionate for everyone and she liked to help without charge."

The Slaughter of Christians in Nigeria

Various attacks on Christians by Muslim Fulani herdsmen continued throughout the month of January. "At least 16 people have been killed by gunmen in southern Nigeria after a New Year's Day church service," says one report. "The group had attended a midnight service before they were ambushed in the early hours of Monday."

According to another report, in one week alone, 55 people were killed and 200 homes torched, in the Lau local government area of Taraba state.

In yet another instance, 80 Christians were slaughtered by the Muslim herdsmen, many hacked to death by machetes, in Logo and Guma County. Speaking from a hospital bed, one survivor, Peter, said the attackers who went after him "were people I had interfaced with in that community. I got up and called them by their names and tried to wrestle the machete they had out of their hands, but to no avail. I was overpowered and they began to cut me."

Discussing these ongoing raids, Rev. Musa Asake, the General Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, said "Under President [Muhammad] Buhari, the murderous Fulani herdsmen enjoyed unprecedented protection and favoritism to the extent that the herdsmen treat Nigeria as a conquered territory. Rather than arrest and prosecute the Fulani herdsmen, security forces usually manned by Muslims from the North offer them protection as they unleash terror with impunity on the Nigerian people."

The Rape of Christians in Pakistan

"A Christian boy of only 7 years old was brutally sodomized by a Muslim rapist," says a report. Daim Masih, a first grader, was walking home from school when he was met by Shan Muhammad, 19, a local: "Hi Daim, it's nice to see you," he began. "I have good news, some of our cows have given birth to young calves. Would you like to come with me and see them?" Because the unsuspecting child was fond of animals and knew Shan, he went with him. Walking hand in hand, Masih began to realize that they were not headed for the farm but a secluded place. When he pointed this out to Shan, the latter responded that he had "another big surprise for him." The report continues:

They walked a few meters to some trees when suddenly Shan ripped off Daim's shirt, then the rest of his clothes and threw Daim to the ground. Shan then jumped on Daim and proceeded with a sexual assault and sodomization of poor Daim. While the attack was happening the tiny 7 year old struggled to fight off Shan who was much bigger and more powerful then him. Daim was punched, slapped and kneed by Shan who was shouting obscenities during the attack and demanding Daim to stop his screaming. The violence and the unlawful penetration of Dain was so painful however, that he could not stop his screaming. Desperate for him to be quiet or thrilled by the power and subjugation of his prey, sexual predator Shan began to tighten his hands around Daim's neck and was slowly throttling him to death while having his wicked way with him.

In fact, many Christian children—boys and girls—have been strangled to death during or after being raped in Pakistan over the years. Fortunately for Daim, his grandfather and uncle heard his cries and rushed to the scenes, at which point Muhammad pulled up his pants and fled the scene. The traumatized 7-year-old was subsequently hospitalized.

In another incident, a young, married Christian woman, the mother of a two-year-old girl "was brutally gang-raped by three men and then left tied in the courtyard of a Muslim man's house until she was found by police two days later," according to a report. Sidhra, 20, had just left her mother's home, when three local men began following her. She started to run towards her home, but they caught up with her, and, according to the report, "grabbed her at which point Sidhra blacked-out. She is unable to recall the events of the next 36 hours at this time." The family eventually learned that she was seen bound to a chair in the courtyard of a local home. The report continues:

[A]ll her family ran to the house of Mohammed Ilyas and peered through the gates when the mother saw her daughter tied up unconscious to a chair with a gag in her mouth, restrained in the courtyard of the neighbor's home, she started to scream. As each sibling saw their sister they too began to scream and shout hysterically. They banged on the gates and one brother climbed over and unlocked the gate from inside and rushed towards his sister. Sidhra was fully clothed and tied at her wrists and legs the rope securing her was so tight bruises could be seen on her wrists. Despite attempts to wake her it took a few minutes to revive her and she remained dizzy—she showed signs of having been drugged.

When she awoke, Sidhra, who "was unconscious for the whole two days and believes that she was subjected to rape," identified the three local men, all nephews of Mohammed Ilyas, the owner. Although her father went to lodge a complaint at the police station, "The Police refused to acknowledge her kidnap or rape and did not initially register a First Incident Report (FIR), as they told the family they had no evidence." After much pressure from the family and other local elders, police registered a crime and arrested two of the assailants—only to release them after some time. Although the family continued to seek justice, "the family holds little hope of any prosecution, as the courts and the police are exhibiting little empathy and seem keen on exonerating the wealthy Muslims," according to the report. Later, Sidhra said:

I am totally distraught, a visit to my mother has become a day of ruin for me. I have suffered a brutal kidnap and rape by disgusting men with no shame.... The thought of what the men done to me makes me shudder, I have nightmares and feel like my whole world has collapsed. I am terrified of walking on the streets at night and am finding it hard to cope with a deep depression that has consumed me. I had a happy life and that has been taken away from me, but the cruel men who stole my joy will soon be released to threaten me and to attack other women like me. There is no justice in this country.

Jihad on Christian Freedom

Kyrgyzstan: Unknown attackers torched a church building in the Muslim-majority nation. The small Baptist community was left "fear[ing] for its safety," says the report: "The damage to the church has forced its 40 Kyrgyz and Russian members to start searching for a new place of worship, while wondering if there will be a further attack."

An official told church members that the attack was "organized by those who don't like your church and Christianity in the midst of a Muslim country." "We don't believe that the police will find and punish those who burned our church," a congregation member said. The report adds that, "Instead of pursuing the arsonists, local Christians said police have asked questions about who funded the church building, how many Kyrgyz are members, and why, as ethnic Muslims, they do not go to the local mosque."

Kenya: Muslim students beat and stabbed their Christian counterparts for refusing to convert to Islam at Nairobi's Jamhuri High School. Hostilities began when Muslim students complained of discrimination. This prompted school officials to designate separate bathrooms and sections in the library for Christians and Muslims. It was not long, however, before the Muslim students began defaming Christianity and pressuring Christians to recite the shahada, the Islamic proclamation of faith, and to uphold Muslim rituals. "Some Muslim students forcefully tried to induct Christian students into their Islam faith, and those who refused were knifed, while others were physically beaten," a local source said. "The knives and machetes used are alleged to have come from outside the school." At least 35 students — including some Muslims, as the Christians did defend themselves — were injured in the melee. Some Christian students received hospital treatment for stab wounds and other injuries; the principal was also injured. The school was subsequently closed indefinitely.

Uganda: A Christian widow was poisoned by her Muslim neighbors on Christmas Day. Earlier that morning, the mother of five was pleasantly surprised when two female Muslim neighbors visited her with food gifts. After they left, she began preparing lunch for her family and used some of the recently brought ingredients. Before serving her family, she tasted the meal and within minutes, was vomiting. "When she started screaming and was continuously vomiting, I called in a taxi and rushed her to Kabuna dispensary, where it was found that she had been poisoned," a family member said. She was treated and discharged from the hospital the next day. An analysis of the food items gifted her were revealed to contain poison. A local meeting was convened and the Muslim neighbor, on being question, confessed to poisoning the food. "Accused of intending to kill Madina and her family members," the reports notes, "Hajira asked for forgiveness, saying that since Madina's family left Islam two years ago, the loudness of their weekly worship at their house with some other church members had been disturbing her and other Muslim neighbors." Despite the attempted murder of the apostates, "village leaders made no legal decisions.

Police have not been called, apparently in order to keep tensions with the Muslim community from escalating, but the in-law [of Madina] said Muslim neighbors have started taunting Madina's children by calling them infidels."

In a separate account, according to one report, Munabi Abdullah, a 37-year-old Muslim man who embraced Christianity, was met with ostracism. On the evening of his conversion, and "with an irrepressible joy in his heart, he shared his experience with his wife, Aisha Namukoli. She became furious." In the convert's own words, "My wife shouted at me in front of the children, saying, 'Kafir, Kafir [infidel]! You are a big shame to the family.' She then pushed me out of the house." Later when he returned, he found several people including his father and mosque members at his house. When he tried to greet them, they silently and angrily stared at him; then his father stood up and said, "You are no longer my son, be cursed forever." "He hit me with a walking stick that was in his hand and hurt my left hand," Abdullah explains. "I managed to escape through a banana farm, and after a short while I was at the pastor's house" where he sought refuge. Local Muslim leaders have since prevented him from having any access to his wife and seven children, aged between 3 and 17.

Nigeria: To coerce, it appears, a Christian woman, 40, and her daughter 21, to convert to Islam, local Muslims falsely accused the two of kidnapping another family member, a child. Problems had begun soon after the husband/father of the family converted to Islam in order to obtain a government job. Amina Isa, his wife, explained: "They told him that he cannot be appointed as a ward head because he's a Christian, and that if he converts to Islam, he'll be appointed the ward head. I advised him against changing his religious faith for worldly position, but after much pressure from Muslims in our area, he succumbed to the demand and became a Muslim.... I reminded him that he should remember that all my family members are Muslims, but that I am the only Christian in that family, and that I married him because he was a Christian like me, so I cannot now convert to Islam simply because the Muslims have appointed him a ward head." Her five children also refused to convert and insisted on remaining Christian. She continues:

Because of their refusal to convert too, we have been threatened, beaten, and subjected to all forms of indignities by my husband and his Muslim collaborators. They've [her children] constantly been threatened, beaten, and harassed. In fact, at one time, [the oldest daughter] had to take her younger siblings and go into hiding, but both have been traced and captured by the officials and are currently being held against their will in a location undisclosed to me.... Right now, my daughters are in the custody of these Muslim officials and are being forced into Islam, while at the same time, we are being tried on false charges. All this is to force us to recant. We can never stop being Christians, and we are confident that the God we serve can never abandon us in our trying moments.

After the father forcibly enrolled his youngest daughter in an Islamic school, and her mother and older sister removed her and re-enrolled her in a Christian school, "Their father, in anger, came to me demanding for both girls. When I told him that the children have decided to remain as Christians, he and other Muslim officials in our village went to file charges against me on abducting my own children at the Magistrate Court in Tudun Wada town, a trial I'm still facing for refusing to change my religious faith. They summoned me and demanded I withdraw my daughter from the Christian school, bring her back to the village, and hand her over to them. Since I was helpless, I did as instructed by them and brought my daughter back to them."

Separately "Pastor Simput Eagles Dafup has been arrested and whisked away to an unknown destination ... for allegedly converting a Muslim girl to a Christian, in Plateau State," a report disclosed. Speaking of this incident, another pastor, Kallamu Musa Ali Dikwa, and executive director of Voice of Northern Christian Movement, said: "Nigeria security has declared war against Christians in this country." He also accused the Nigerian government of treating Christians and Muslims differently: "Muslims have abducted 100 Christian girls under the age of 18 and forcefully converted them to Islam and we have reported to several security agencies but no arrest was made or return of Christian girls to their parents.... The abduction of Christian girls has continued unabated. Such scenarios are serious cases of injustice against Christians in the country, and the perpetrators have often gone Scott free."

European Union/Switzerland: While uncritically taking in and conferring refugee status on countless Muslim migrants, European authorities continued singling out those most in need of sanctuary for deportation. In one instance, a Christian legal group filed an expert brief with the European Court of Human Rights in support of a Muslim man from Afghanistan who converted to Christianity and who risked being deported from Switzerland. The group, known as ADF International, said the man, if forced back to Afghanistan, would as an apostate from Islam face immense persecution, possibly including death: "Afghanistan is not a safe place for a Christian convert," it said. "The Court should ask Switzerland to stop turning a blind eye to the situation of religious minorities in Afghanistan.... This means much more than demanding a convert practice his faith in secret. Sending a refugee back to a country where they face persecution because of their faith is incompatible with the Convention."

The Christian legal group ADF International filed an expert brief with the European Court of Human Rights in support of a Muslim man from Afghanistan who converted to Christianity and who risked being deported from Switzerland. Afghanistan is not a safe place for a Christian convert," it said. "The Court should ask Switzerland to stop turning a blind eye to the situation of religious minorities in Afghanistan..."

About this Series

While not all, or even most, Muslims are involved, persecution of Christians by Muslim extremists is growing. The report posits that such Muslim persecution is not random but rather systematic, and takes place irrespective of language, ethnicity, or location.

Political correctness is most pervasive in universities and colleges but I rarely report the  incidents concerned here as I have a separate blog for educational matters.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

Peter Biar Ajak in Nairobi, May 2017 

© Private
(Nairobi) – The South Sudanese National Security Service (NSS) should immediately and unconditionally release peace activist and academic Peter Biar Ajak or take him to court and charge him with a recognizable crime. The authorities should also end the arbitrary detention of many others held by the security service, in violation of their rights.
 
“South Sudan’s security agents have long harassed and arbitrarily detained people, apparently to silence independent voices,” said Jehanne Henry, associate Africa
director at Human Rights Watch. “South Sudan desperately needs public dialogue and greater respect for human rights, not more repression and violations.”
 
Ajak’s detention is part of a deeply troubling pattern of increasing government repression against its critics since December 2013, when a political dispute between President Salva Kiir Mayardit and his then Vice President Riek Machar led to armed conflict. This latest arrest underlines the need for major reforms to the security service.
 
Security officials arrested Ajak, a doctoral candidate at the University of Cambridge, on July 28, 2018, at Juba International Airport. Ajak was waiting to board a flight to Aweil County to attend Martyr Day celebrations organized by the Red Army Foundation, a national veterans’ organization. Security officials are holding him in a solitary cell at the NSS Headquarters in Juba, known as the Blue House. They have allowed him family visits, but he is yet to be given access to legal counsel.  
 
The grounds for Ajak’s arrest are not known. He has been a vocal critic of government policies and founded a youth group, the South Sudan Young Leaders Forum, which engages in peace, reconciliation, and state-building activities. On August 2, the security service director established a three-member committee to investigate Ajak’s social media activities, political commentary, and the youth group’s activities, informed sources told Human Rights Watch. 
 
Human Rights Watch has documented widespread harassment and unlawful detention of journalists, activists, and members of political opposition groups over the past four and a half years, creating an atmosphere of fear and self-censorship. Most of those detained have been held without charge, and often denied access to their families or lawyers.
 
Many of those released have reported harsh conditions of detention and abuse, including: beatings and torture, and a lack of adequate food, water, and medical care. One journalist released in January, after nine months in detention on the condition of quitting journalism, told Human Rights Watch that security officials routinely abused him, including beating and kicking him, putting him in stress positions, and putting gasoline in his eyes: “There was no air in my cell, it was difficult to breathe, they refused me to take a bath and put me in a room officers used to urinate in.” 
 
Even after his release, he still feels unsafe. “They told me I was still under surveillance… I live in fear, I restrict my movement. My children who are far from me, I cannot see, I fear being kidnapped and killed. I don’t know what to do.” 
 
Another journalist, Joseph Afandi, arrested in December 2015, was held for two and a half months, allegedly in connection with an article he wrote for the newspaper El Tabeer criticizing the ruling Sudan People’s Liberation Movement. He was beaten and otherwise abused in detention. 
 
Another journalist who worked for the United Nations radio Miraya, George Livio, was arrested in Wau on August 22, 2014, and then detained at the Blue House. He was released on May 26, 2017, after two and a half years in detention without charge.
 
The security service has also been implicated in enforced disappearances. Dong Samuel Luak, a human rights lawyer and a vocal critic of the government, and Aggrey Idri, a member of the political opposition, were abducted in Nairobi, Kenya on January 23 and 24, 2017, respectively. Witnesses told Human Rights Watch they saw the men at the NSS headquarters in Juba on January 27, 2017, before they were moved to a different location. Their current whereabouts and situation remain unknown. Kenyan and South Sudanese authorities have denied holding them. 
 
Two UN national staff members were also forcibly disappeared. National security agents arrested them in 2014, and they were last seen at the Riverside detention facility in January 2016.
 
In May 2017, Salva Kiir announced that he would release all political prisoners, but human rights monitors report that dozens of people remain detained without charge in the NSS headquarters and other detention sites in Juba.
 
Authorities should release all unlawfully held detainees and uphold all detainees’ basic due process protections such as for access to a lawyer and family visits. The government should also initiate prompt, effective and impartial investigations into the security agency’s detention practices and revise elements of the NSS Act that violate human rights, Human Rights Watch said.
 
The Act, which came into force in March 2015, grants the agency sweeping powers of search, seizure, arrest, and detention. It does not guarantee those deprived of liberty the right to counsel or to be tried within a reasonable period of time, or specify that detainees may only be held in official places of detention. The law also does not explicitly prohibit ill treatment and torture or proscribe the use of force by its officials. 
 
The 2015 peace agreement, the Agreement on Resolution of Conflict in South Sudan, requires revision of the National Security Service Act by a National Constitution Amendment Committee. The committee started drafting amendments in November 2017 but has yet to finalize this process.
 
“South Sudanese authorities should release everyone being held arbitrarily and change the way the national security agency operates,” Henry said. “National Security officials should be subject to the same oversight as all security forces and held accountable for their abuses.

Harvard’s Global Health Delivery Intensive
global health delivery intensive

Three days before Garba Bakunawa traveled from Nigeria to Harvard for a nearly month-long course on global healthcare delivery, an electrical injury with the potential to imperil his ability to practice surgery knocked him unconscious. Heavy rains had flooded parts of his community in northeast Nigeria and damaged the local power provider. Abnormal voltage flares were causing problems throughout the area.

He awoke on June 29 to the furious chirp of wires sparking in the ceiling of his house. Telling his family to remain behind him, Bakunawa reached for the control box in the house to cut the power—and everything went black.

“I remember that I made an effort to touch it, but I can’t remember what happened next,” he said. “I just remember that I woke up on the way to the hospital and my brother was telling me that I was electrocuted.” By his account, he was luckier than most. The electrical problems injured many in his community, and even killed a few people. “At least I was healthy enough to walk around,” he said. After 12 hours in the hospital, he left on a regimen of antibiotics and with his right arm covered in a large cast. The shock had heavily charred the skin of his hand. It was not clear if he would recover well enough to practice again.

Bakunawa was due in Cambridge the following week for the start of the 2018 Global Health Delivery Intensive (GHDI), a three-week program jointly offered by the School of Public Health (HSPH), the Medical School (HMS), and Brigham and Women’s Hospital that convenes mid-career health professionals from across the globe for lessons about improving access to key health treatments. Voted an outstanding member of his hospital’s staff, Bakunawa received funding to attend the program and had already booked his ticket to Boston before his injury. His family urged him to try to reschedule. He would not be swayed.

In Boston, he joined a 55-member cohort of summer student learners representing 27 countries and a wide array of professional backgrounds, including in nonprofit leadership, clinical care, and community health work. More than half of that cohort labors in “resource poor settings” and a plurality of program participants are direct patient care providers, according to demographic data gathered by the program’s leaders. 

While Harvard does not provide financial assistance for the program, almost 90 percent of this year’s cohort received financial support from outside sources such as scholarship or training programs, or from employers, to cover the program’s $8,000 tuition fee. Sources of support came from a wide array of local and international organizations such as Massachusetts General Hospital and the Center for Health Care Delivery in Dubai (which funds ten full and ten partial scholarships to GHDI). 

“Some of the students are, of course, incredible themselves,” Davin Eurich, the program’s coordinator, added, “and will receive funding from the World Health Organization or their own ministries of health. It’s a work of art to see the funding work out.”  

Thinking Globally

In some ways, Bakunawa’s experience navigating dramatically different care infrastructure in Nigeria and the United States underscores the mission of the GHDI: to provide healthcare professionals with the know-how to standardize levels of care globally.

GHDI grew out of a larger effort launched nearly 11 years ago (the Global Health Delivery Project, GHDP), which sought to standardize a “lexicon” that healthcare professionals could apply to their respective regional contexts, said GHDI program director Rebecca Weintraub in an interview  (she is assistant professor of global health and social medicine at HMS). Eleven years ago, she said, her team set out to generate “what we viewed as novel public goods”—in this case, resources about best practices for global health professionals, including case studies similar to those created at the Business School, with step-by-step descriptions of how health professionals tackled issues in their regions, designed to help alleviate the disparities in levels of care and infrastructure that exist across the world. 

The GHDP was, according to Weintraub, one of the first of its kind, merging HMS’s clinical know-how with HSPH’s population-level, solutions-based frameworks: “It sounds not-so-novel now, but at the time the intersection between clinical and public health was relatively new, and when you think about it, Harvard Medical School and the School of Public Health are separate entities.” 

Harvard’s focus on global health is wide-ranging and continues to expand: it has launched more than 120 global-health related offerings, from Business School executive-education leadership programs to an undergraduate secondary field that focuses on interdisciplinary study of healthcare, policy, and science. 

GHDI, while not a degree- or certificate-granting program, is just as intensive as most other HMS courses. During their time in residence, students enroll in three courses—“Epidemiological Methods for Global Health,” “Introduction to Global Healthcare Delivery,” and “Management Practices in Healthcare Delivery”—which are meant to provide an interdisciplinary introduction to how health professionals tackle public health issues that recur worldwide. A combination of Harvard professors (some from HMS, HSPH, and the Kennedy School) and guest lecturers who work in healthcare teach the courses, which typically run 2 hours per session.

One GHDI case study this year examined a mother of three in rural Kenya whose youngest son developed a fever. A community health worker diagnosed him with malaria. The mother (named Esther in the study) could not find the prescribed antimalarials and mosquito netting for her children at the village drugstore, and she couldn’t get the materials from neighboring villages because their pharmacies were either out of stock or charged exorbitant fees. The case served as the starting point for a discussion on best practices for “last-mile logistics,” or how supply chains deliver their products to patients. The session pushed students to consider the inefficiencies at every step of the delivery process, from communication errors or demand fluctuations, that might lead to stock-outs during a crucial time of need. 

Other cases tackled issues such as the role of diplomacy in healthcare, community-based solutions to healthcare, and financing.

In one wide-ranging session of the management-practices course, Kolokotrones University Professor of global health and social medicinePaul Farmer—who chairs the eponymous department and co-founded the nonprofit Partners In Health—spoke at length about the challenges facing healthcare professionals: distrust of nonprofit organizations in places like Haiti (where Farmer and Partners have long been active); the need to understand historical context when planning broad care efforts; and continuing debates over how to define “equity” and “universality” in care. He stressed the importance of addressing such issues explicitly. “When you impoverish a discussion about healthcare for decades, a lot of not talking about it, I tend to believe any discussion of universality is a good one,” Farmer said. He put current discussions about the universality of healthcare into the context of American upheavals such as the abolitionist and civil-rights movements.  

The theme of equity in healthcare emerged in many of the program’s sessions, Weintraub emphasized. “In many ways, our students come to the program with that sense. Equity is already a part of their professional agenda, but they come here looking for ways to operationalize it.”

A Vast Network 

Though coursework is a major component of the experience of the GHDI, program coordinator Davin Eurich said networking and opportunities for peer-to-peer learning bolster the graduates’ experiences.

“Those that were willing to share their vulnerability and hardships [in ways] that others in the class could really relate to...is what really builds this network,” she said. “The students are coming and meeting different inspiration points. Some are moving on...to other programs at Harvard. Others are leveraging GHDI in numerous other ways back home.”

GHDI has graduated 350 students from 60 countries so far. Many have returned to work in the ministries of health of their respective countries or to aid nonprofits in region-specific work, while others return to local hospitals to deploy the new knowledge they have acquired.

Bakunawa will return with that—and more. O[2] ne day, during a lecture in the beginning of the program, Bakunawa raised his hand to answer a question, and HMS professor and GHDI co-director Joseph Rhatigan noticed the injury to his hand for the first time. 

“That day he sent me a message saying there was a doctor, a hand surgeon, who would like to review me, and he was able to link me with a plastic surgeon,” Bakunawa said. “Just like a family, they treated me very well.” Faculty from the program, HMS instructors, and physicians at Brigham worked to provide Bakunawa with surgery free of charge, including skin grafting to the affected areas on his hand and the removal of one of his fingers, which had been badly damaged.

“I called my wife and my family and I told them what was happening, and that they’re doing it for free. I didn’t have the money to do it here, and this was at one of the best hospitals globally,” he said. “I was so happy with the consideration, with the sympathy I received from my colleagues.” 

The program and the care he received from classmates has inspired him, demonstrating in word and deed that anything is possible. And that has become a mantra. “One of our facilitators here, Rebecca [Weintraub], she says that instead of saying ‘no,’ just say ‘it’s possible.”  

At the graduation ceremony on the last day of the program, the students heard from Stephen Kahn, president of the Abundance Foundation, an organization that helps train nonprofit leaders who work on the intersection of health, arts, and education. Kahn graduated with the first cohort of the program, and the foundation he now heads has supported Partners In Health in the past, and according to Eurich, provides financial support to GHDI that helps the program’s leaders improve the course offerings each year. 

In his keynote remarks, Kahn spoke of grappling with issues of scarce resources during an experience working in hospital in Zambia before attending GHDI. Without the necessary HIV diagnostic technology, he said he “had to guessat which of my languishing patients were dying of AIDS.” 

“I thumbed through my Merck manual, hoping the pages would answer the endless cascade of questions I had. All I had was my clinical vigilance,” he said. 

Kahn called GHDI a “profound turning point” for him, and stressed that the program’s emphasis on providing political and historical context for its cases helped deepen his understanding of how to address public-health crises. Moreover, he emphasized that relying on the network of GHDI graduates has strengthened his work—by providing professional advice and by helping him weather the toughest moments of being a healthcare provider.

“I’m standing shoulder to shoulder with you in this work to bring equity and excellence in healthcare,” Kahn told the graduates. “It’s so easy to get conditioned to scarcity. The global health delivery course is an antidote to that mindset.”

          Who is responsible? Local government and accountability for service delivery in Kenya’s devolved health sector      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
One of the arguments in favour of local governments is their ability to deliver public services better because of their proximity to demand. This is typically achieved through decentralisation – the transfer of some level of formal responsibility, authority and/or resources to smaller, lower tiers of government. This paper examines service delivery in the health sector in Kenya within the context of the country’s newly introduced devolved system of government, which created 47 county governments under the 2010 Constitution. It examines three key responsibilities: i) resource mobilisation, distribution and administration, ii) decision-making, and iii) political accountability, and their bearing on outcomes for delivery of health services. The paper argues that devolution of the health function in Kenya has been only partial, leading to challenges of coordination between the national and county governments and ambiguity over responsibility for service delivery; both factors which risk undermining the opportunities that devolution creates or promises.

Key Messages

Protracted conflict drives food insecurity; and flooding in the north affects livelihoods

  • Continued conflict and subsequent displacement have disrupted livelihoods and access to key sources of food and income in South Sudan, Yemen, and parts of Somalia, Sudan, and Ethiopia. Large populations are experiencing Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or Emergency (IPC Phase 4) outcomes across these areas, which are likely to persist through January 2019. South Sudan and Yemen remain the areas of greatest concern. In a worst-case scenario, if there is a sustained absence of humanitarian assistance in South Sudan, and in Yemen, if commercial imports decline significantly for an extended period of time and conflict restricts trade and humanitarian assistance, Famine (IPC Phase 5) is possible.

  • From June to early August, there has been above-average rainfall across parts of central and western regions of Ethiopia into Sudan and South Sudan, which has led to flooding, with the greatest intensity in Sudan. While the heavy rainfall has been beneficial for some crop development and pasture regeneration, it has also caused displacement, infrastructure, crop, and livestock losses, and disrupted household livelihoods in affected areas. Given the forecast, there is the likelihood for additional flash floods in these countries.

  • Crisis (IPC Phase 3) outcomes persist over parts of southeastern Ethiopia and southern and central Somalia, but food security continues to improve as livestock production and prices have increased substantially. Somalia Gu production in southern agropastoral areas is expected to be above average, while total Meher production in Ethiopia and marginal production in Kenya is likely to be near average. By January 2019, food security outcomes are expected to further improve to Stressed (IPC Phase 2) or Minimal (IPC Phase 1) across many areas of the Eastern Horn; however, Somalia’s Guban Pastoral Livelihood Zone is likely to remain in Emergency (IPC Phase 4).

  • According to UNCHR as of mid-July, a total of nearly 11.3 million people are internally displaced in Burundi, Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan, and Yemen, while there are 4.6 million refugees from these countries living in Ethiopia, Kenya, Sudan, Uganda, and Tanzania. The majority of these populations have limited capacities to access food and income and are dependent on humanitarian assistance amidst substantial funding gaps. Current food ration cuts of up to 30 percent for refugees and asylum seekers could lead to a deterioration in food security outcomes if they persist.

Current major event

Emergency risk communication in outbreaks

To provide WHO Member States, partners and stakeholders involved in emergency preparedness and response with the most up-to-date best practices on Emergency Risk Communication, this year WHO published “Communicating risk in public health emergencies - A WHO guideline for emergency risk communication (ERC) policy and practice”.

Editorial note

During public health emergencies, ERC informs at-risk people on the health risks they face, and on the actions they can take to protect their health and lives. Proper ERC is a two-way street: it informs at-risk people, while at the same time allowing authorities and experts to listen to the same people and address their concerns and needs so that the experts’ advice remains relevant, trusted and acceptable. Risk communication sits at the center of the risk management cycle, connecting all the other parts. This circular view of risk management has replaced the older, more linear, vision, and emphasizes the central importance of risk communications in every step of the process—and even more so in emergency settings.

As the fields of marketing, communications and public health advanced, so did the practice of ERC. Thus, mobile technology and digital information platforms play an important role in modern-day ERC. Twitter and Facebook have been used with success to spread truthful information and to verify information to dispel rumours and misinformation during public health crises. Services like SMS, WhatsApp and others are increasingly being used to share health-related information, including to track and combat rumours and to communicate with people in quarantined areas, for example during the West African Ebola virus out-break in 2014-2016.

Distinct but related principles underpin WHO’s approaches to effective communications and effective risk communications. For the former, WHO aims to make all communications accessible, actionable, credible, relevant, timely, and understandable. These general principles also support risk communications, but for ERC there is an additional focus on measures that build trust: transparency, rapid announcements, and listening to the at-risk populations. This emphasis is explained by the fact that trust is a central factor in decision-making and a strong indicator for compliance rates among mes-sage recipients, because the more you trust someone, the more you are likely to follow their instructions.

In recent years, two complex issues have emerged determining ERC’s success and failure. First, different perceptions of the same risk by experts and the public mean that for ERC to be effective, the social, religious, cultural, political and economic aspects associated with the event and those at risk must be considered. Second, issues of the trustworthiness of the information and advice that is communicated mean that for practitioners of ERC, be they inter-national organizations, health authorities, or community workers, maintaining and nurturing their audiences’ trust is a key concern.

Because of improving technology and more sophisticated tools from the marketing communications field, monitoring and evaluation in ERC have also improved over the past years. Combining pre-digital tools like in-person surveys with digital analytics facilitates the gathering, analys-ing, and interpreting of emergency risk communication data and feedback, which can then feed into emergency risk communication planning, strategy development, execution and renewed evaluation.

Even so, the new Guidelines identify many areas of further research, including several looking at the effect of ERC, especially in low and middle income countries. A related gap is the lack of sustained funding for ERC modalities as standard part of health project design. Finally, the effects of digital media and the splintering of sources and fields of information, absence of longitudi-nal studies, and research measuring the effect of an intervention, rather than simply describing it, all deserve further investigation.


          Ethiopia: UNICEF Ethiopia Humanitarian Situation Report #6 – Reporting Period January-June 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Source: UN Children's Fund
Country: Ethiopia, Somalia, South Sudan

Highlights

▪ The current number of internally displaced people in Ethiopia has increased to 2.4 million from 1.6 million at the beginning of the year. Seasonal flooding from July to September is expected to affect 2.5 million people.

▪ With UNICEF support, more than 111,000 children under five have received treatment for severe acute malnutrition since January.

▪ UNICEF-supported Mobile Health and Nutrition Teams have provided medical consultations to 231,529 people, including 89,798 under five children.

▪ UNICEF has provided access to safe water to 1.9 million people.

▪ The Humanitarian and Disaster Resilience Plan (HDRP) for Ethiopia, costed at US$1.6 billion, will be revised in August with humanitarian asks expected to increase.

▪ Access to affected communities either due to security concerns or lack of infrastructure have been significant challenges to the provision of humanitarian assistance.

Situation Overview and Humanitarian Needs

Conflict-induced internal displacement has led to significant humanitarian needs in the first half of this year. At the start of the year, there were 1.6 million people displaced by conflict and drought, including just over one million conflict IDPs along the Oromia/Somali regional borders. However, renewed conflict along the border of the Oromia and the Southern Nations Nationalities and Peoples (SNNP) regions has increased the number of IDPs to 2.4 million. Conflict in Moyale in March led to the displacement of over 10,000 people across the border into Kenya. While some have returned to their places of origin, community tensions in Moyale remain high.

The HDRP was launched in March with the expectation that Ethiopia would enter its fourth consecutive year of protracted drought. However, the country has been receiving above average rainfall in most of the country which has led to unexpected flooding and landslides in several regions (SNNP, Somali) and caused extensive damage to homes, livelihoods and infrastructure. In fact, Ethiopia received heavy winds and rain from a first - tropical storm Sagar in May. The flooding is expected to continue through September as the National Meteorological Agency (NMA) has predicted an extended and above normal (Kiremt) season affecting all regions, except Southern Somali region. The NMA currently estimates that 2.5 million people are at risk of being affected, of which 637,000 are likely to be displaced. A national flood contingency planning exercise is underway.

While reported rates of Acute Watery Diarrhea (AWD) have fallen short of last years’ caseload, there have been several reported outbreaks, with an outbreak in Afar yet to be contained. The number of reported cases in Afar has reached 799.

Five woredas have been affected and three are currently reporting active cases. As the Awash river is the source of infection, 16 woredas connected to the Awash river plain are considered high risk. Active AWD outbreaks have also been reported in Tigray and Somali regions.

Following the reported Ebola outbreak in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia has increased its preparedness levels and is screening travelers at ports of entry. An isolation center has been activated at Bole International Airport in Addis Ababa and a treatment unit established at Bole Health Center. A National Task Force led by the Minister of Health is currently reviewing preparedness and response plans. UNICEF Ethiopia has updated its Ebola Contingency Plan.

As of end May, 920,262 refugees were residing in Ethiopia – 48.2 per cent from South Sudan, 27.8 per cent from Somalia, 18.4 per cent from Eritrea, and 4.8 per cent from Sudan. In the first five months of this year, 29, 211 refugees arrived in Ethiopia.

As of the end of July 2018, 21 Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP) and the Syria Regional Response Plan (3RP) require US$25.41 billion to assist 95.8 billion people in urgent need of humanitarian support. The 21 HRPs and the Syria 3RP were funded at $9.52 billion: 37 per cent of financial requirements for 2018. Humanitarian organisations still require $16.02 billion to meet the needs covered by these plans.

Requirements are $2 billion higher than last year at the same time. Overall coverage is also slightly higher (three per cent), with $1.4 billion more received this year than last.

Pooled funds

Between 1 January and 31 July 2018, the Emergency Relief Coordinator approved $333 million through the Central Emergency Response Fund, including $233 million through the rapid response window and $100 million through the underfunded emergencies window. In July, $24 million was approved in rapid response grants to respond to displacement in Ethiopia, population movement from Venezuela into Colombia, worsening food insecurity in Niger, and a volcanic eruption in Guatemala. The largest allocation was $15 million to provide relief items, safe water, sanitation facilities, and health and nutrition treatment to 800,000 people displaced by inter-communal violence in Gedeo and West Guji in Ethiopia.

Between 1 January and 6 August 2018, 17 country-based pooled funds (CBPF) received $536 million in contributions from 30 donors (including $80 million in pledges). During this period, $369 million were allocated to a total of 663 humanitarian projects, implemented by 443 partners, with the funds in Yemen ($92 million), DRC ($36 million) and Iraq ($34 million) allocating the largest amounts. During July, the funds in Afghanistan, Jordan, Nigeria, South Sudan and Turkey were processing allocations. As for overall CBPF allocations, 58 per cent were disbursed to NGOs, including 19 per cent ($71 million) directly to national and local NGOs. Another 41 per cent ($150 million) was allocated to UN agencies and 1 per cent of funding was allocated to Red Cross/Red Crescent organizations.

Country updates

Yemen is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis. Some 22.2 million people – about 75 per cent of the population – require humanitarian assistance or protection. This includes 8.4 million people who do not know where their next meal is coming from. An unprecedented outbreak of cholera and acute watery diarrhoea has resulted in more than 1.1 million cases since April 2017. Escalating conflict in Hudaydah has displaced more than 350,000 people since 1 June. More than 90 per cent of these people have received emergency relief packages distributed by humanitarian partners. Sustained hostilities in Hudaydah city, interruptions to port operations or a siege would be catastrophic and must be avoided. Humanitarian programmes have expanded significantly across Yemen. In June, partners provided emergency food assistance to 7.5 million people – an increase of 200,000 people since January. Similar increases have occurred in other sectors. As of mid-year, about 60 per cent of people targeted with assistance had been reached. Generous and flexible funding has been key. Donors have provided more than 60 per cent of the HRP’s $3 billion requirements – including an early, unearmarked $930 million contribution from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Partners recently sequenced the HRP to show first-line, second-line and full response activities, and require full funding to deliver all programmes based on this plan.

Needs remain high in Ethiopia with 7.88 million people food insecure, as per the Humanitarian and Disaster Resilience Plan (HDRP) released in March. There has been a major surge in displacement since the beginning of June around Gedeo (SNNPR) and West Guji (Oromia) zones resulting in the release of a response plan which seeks $117.7m to assist the 818,250 recently displaced people. Some funding has already been mobilized by Government and partners, primarily through reallocating resources that were originally intended for important response elsewhere in the country under the HDRP.

Fighting in south-west Syria continued to impact hundreds of thousands of civilians, with 180,000 people remaining newly displaced as of the end of July. Aerial bombardment and artillery shelling resulted in civilian deaths and destruction of civilian infrastructure in many areas. Humanitarian workers and service providers were caught up in the violence, with many displaced alongside other civilians. Humanitarian response continued in Dar’a governorate, building on cross-border prepositioning and subsequently drawing on programming from inside Syria. However more than 100,000 newly displaced people remained largely cut off from sustained assistance in Quneitra governorate. Partners identified priority requirements of $85 million to cover the most urgent protection and assistance needs of 300,000 people across the south-west up until mid-October. Concerns also persist around the threat of further military escalation in the north-west of the country, where the number of people in need of humanitarian assistance in Aleppo and Idleb governorates had increased by close to 600,000 by mid-year, to a total of 4.2 million, of whom half were in acute need. Response across the north-west continues to depend on cross-border assistance delivered from Turkey.

At least 3.4 million people in Cameroon need humanitarian assistance and protection. Six out of ten regions are affected by humanitarian crises related to Boko Haram in the Far North, the conflict in the Central African Republic and the worsening situation in the Anglophone regions. Further, growing levels of food insecurity and malnutrition are affecting over 2.6 million people, including 1.5 million children, and there is an ongoing cholera outbreak in the Center and North regions. The 2018 HRP calls for $319.7 million but is only 23 per cent funded. Additional donor support is critical to ensure life-saving assistance to the most vulnerable populations, especially the newly displaced persons in the Far North and the South-West.

Although the number of IDPs in the Central African Republic (CAR) fell to 608,000 during June, a seven per cent decrease compared to May, this does not indicate an improvement of the situation. The tensions and armed violence that erupted in April continue, and are causing new displacements in areas with very limited access. More than half (354,017) of the IDPs are staying with host families, while some 249,522 are in IDP sites and settlements, and another 4,489 are scattered in the bush, in desperate need of assistance. Increasing insecurity is affecting the delivery of aid, as five humanitarian workers have been killed since the beginning of 2018, making CAR one of the most dangerous countries in the world for the delivery of humanitarian aid. Moreover, underfunding remains one of the biggest impediments to stepping up the humanitarian response. At mid-year, the 2018 HRP had only received 26 per cent of its $515.6 million requirement. Without additional funding, humanitarian actors will be unable to address the needs of 1.9 million people targeted in the Plan.

The Marawi Conflict Response and Resources Overview (Mindanao, Philippines) seeks $61 million to provide essential services, food security, protection, livelihood and early recovery support for 199,000 conflict-affected people in Mindanao, of whom 69,412 are still displaced, from July 2017 to December 2018. While an organized return is underway, the majority of those who were forced to flee during the conflict will continue to require humanitarian assistance until sustainable recovery activities are underway, especially for those from the most affected areas of the city. Some $11 million (18%) has been received to-date.

Afghanistan is in the midst of a drought, the scale of which has not been seen since 2011. It has already resulted in some 84,000 people being displaced to Hirat City in western Afghanistan, with up to 150,000 at risk of being displaced. In 2017, wheat production was at an all-time low (57 per cent under the five-year average) and the expected shortfall in production in 2018 is decreasing further -- from 4.2 million metric tonnes to 3.5 million metric tonnes. This decrease is impacting some two million already food insecure people across two thirds of Afghanistan. The ongoing drought led the Humanitarian Country Team to increase the Afghanistan 2018 Humanitarian Response Plan requirements by $117 million, for a total of $547 million. The HRP is currently only 29 per cent funded. Additional funding is required to provide food security, agriculture, water, sanitation, hygiene and nutritional support. The humanitarian community is currently conducting a multi-sectoral humanitarian-development assessment, led by OCHA and UNDP, to examine both humanitarian needs and the wider, long-term complexities underpinning the drought crisis, that would need structural support through development programming.

Four years of conflict have put a tremendous strain on the civilian population in eastern Ukraine. Disrupted access to critical facilities and diminished livelihoods mean that some 3.4 million people are without basic supplies and services and need assistance for protection and survival. Some 200,000 people live under constant fear of shelling every day. One and a half million Ukrainians have been displaced across the country and cannot return home due to hostilities or lost livelihoods. Over 1 million civilians cross the “contact line” every month through operational checkpoints, which lack required shade, cooling spaces and healthcare facilities. Under these conditions, coupled with prolonged waiting hours and summer heat, civilians—many of them elderly—suffer health-related complications. Funding for the Humanitarian Response Plan is urgently needed, as only 27 per cent of the required $187 million has been received so far to respond to the urgent needs of 2.3 million vulnerable Ukrainians with assistance and protection throughout 2018.

Haiti is well into the hurricane season and increased international support for emergency preparedness efforts is required. Haitians are still recovering from consecutive natural disasters, including a major earthquake, hurricanes, floods and drought, and need sustained support. This support is not only to obtain life’s basic necessities, but also to move beyond recurring disasters and build sustainable livelihoods and live in resilient communities that are prepared for future shocks. Humanitarian actors aim to provide humanitarian assistance and protection services to the 2.2 million most vulnerable Haitians, but they have received only 9 per cent of the required $252 million this year.

Ada hal hal penting sebagai pengguna,terutama mengedepankan kenyamanan saat kita menaiki mobil pribadi.
kadang saat jalan terdengar ada bunyi bunyi perjalanan menjadi terganggu dalam hal kenyamanan dan yang paling terutama hati tida tenang merasa takut ada sesuatu terjadi,seperti baud kendor,sparepat oblak dan sebagainya,
Sebenarnya ampir tiap postingan yang dibahas tida begitu berbeda posting lama sama posting baru,
di posting lama yang dibahas
>Bunyi-bunyi
>Seloyoran
>limbung
>Gabisa spooring
sama halnya juga di posting baru tida begitu beda yang dibahas seperti itu juga,
alasan utama jika kita mendalami ampir semua jenis mobil keluhan/masalah semua seperti itu,hanya cara penanganannya dan cara pembongkaran yang membedakannya.
untuk mobil mobil eropa seperti
 Bmw
 Mercy
 Jaguar
sangat diperlukan orang orang ahli yang benar benar tau resiko jika ada kesalahan sedikitpun.
tapi tetap untuk mobil mobil jepang seperti
toyota
honda
dll
mesti di perhatikan juga,karna untuk mobil di atas th 2008 keatas,sudah menggunakan sistem eletrick semua.

Nah jika anda sebagai pemake Mobil Bmw X3
ga usah bingung jika punya kendala seperti diatas,datang ke bengkel resminya langsung.
jika kebengkel umum datangi yang sudah anda percaya,jangan sampai mobil anda jadi bahan percobaan,

Sparepat yang bisa menimbulkan masalah di atas,biasanya yang paling sering seperti
 Balljoin
 Tierod
 Long Tierod
 Linkstabiliser
 Busing arm

Jika anda sudah mengetahui masalahnya,beli separepart dan pasang di bengkel umum,menghemat sedikit,,!!!
tapi jika mau hemat lebih banyak di bengkel kami semua sparepat di atas bisa dikerjakan dengan rekondisi/riper,
Busing arm mesti baru
masalah kekuatan,,,?
di bengkel kami semua yang diperbaiki bergaransi 1 th/12 bulah,lumayan kan,,,,,,,,!!!

بسیاری در سراسر جهان پس از حادثه یازدهم سپتامبر سال ۲۰۰۱ میلادی و حملات به برج های دوقلوی نیویورک بود که از وجود شبکه القاعده و شیوه آنها در اقدامات تروریستی در نقاط مختلف جهان مطلع شدند.

اما سه سال قبل از آن، در سال ۱۹۹۸ میلادی، انفجارهایی در نزدیکی سفارتخانه آمریکا در دو شهر نایروبی در کنیا و دارالسلام در تانزانیا به کشته شدن دستکم ۲۵۰ نفر منجر شد.
دوازده آمریکایی در این حملات کشته شدند اما بیشتر قربانیان مردم محلی کنیایی و تانزانیایی بودند. در این دو حمله بیش از ۴ هزار نفر زخمی شدند.
این بمب گذاری‌ها گروه القاعده را به کانون توجه افکار عمومی کشاند و نام اسامه بن لادن، رهبر شبکه القاعده را در راس فهرست افراد تحت تعقیب پلیس فدرال آمریکا (اف بی آی) قرار داد.
'ترور بدون مرز '
از دیدگاه استراتژیک، دو حمله کنیا و تانزانیا آغاز دورانی بوده است که در آن حملات تروریستی محدود به مرزهای مناطق مختلف محدود نمی‌شد.

در اواخر سال‌های ۱۹۹۰ و با سرعت گرفتن گردش اطلاعات، در حالی که تصاویر و اخبار در بیست و چهار ساعت شبانه روز از طریق شبکه های خبری رد و بدل می‌شد، پیام‌ها می‌توانست به دست اسلامگرایان تندرویی که هزاران مایل از یکدیگر فاصله داشتند و در گوشه و کنار جهان بودند، برسد.
القاعده پس از موفقیتش در شرق آفریقا در اکتبر سال ۲۰۰۰ میلادی به ناوشکن آمریکایی "یو اس‌اس کول" که در بندر عدن در یمن در حال سوختگیری بود حمله کرد که در این حادثه ۱۷ ملوان آمریکایی کشته و دهها نفر از آنها زخمی شدند.
مراسم یادبود کشته شدگان حملات تروریستی سال ۱۹۹۸ امروز (سه شنبه هفتم اوت) در نایروبی و دارالسلام پایتخت‌های کنیا و تانزانیا برگزار شد.
در مراسمی که در شهر نایروبی برگزار شد نام همه کشته شدگان خوانده شد. در واشنگتن هم مقامات ارشد وزارت خارجه آمریکا مراسم یادبودی با حضور خانواده قربانیان این حملات برگزار کردند.

در مراسم امروز در نایروبی، مارتین کیمانی، رئیس مرکز ضد تروریسم ملی کنیا به نمایندگی از دولت این کشور گفت که این حملات نقطه آغازی بود برای شکل تازه‌ای از اقدامات تروریستی.
او گفت: "انگار این حملات اشتیاق القاعده را برای دست زدن به حملاتی در مقیاس وسیع و گسترده افزایش داد. از آن پس ما در همه جای جهان شاهد تکرار حملات تروریستی بودیم."
خواهر یکی از قربانیان که برای سفارت آمریکا در نایروبی کار می‌کرد به خبرگزاری فرانسه گفت : "امروز برای همه ما روز دردناکی است. روزی نبوده است که ما به او فکر نکنیم. برای خانواده ما این اتفاق دردناکی است؛ برای بچه‌های او و نوه‌هایی که هرگز نتوانست آنها را ببیند."
بیش از دویست نفر در نایروبی کشته شدند.
برای جولی اوگویی، آن روز جمعه مثل بقیه روزهای کاری شروع شده بود.
نزدیکی های ظهر بود که کامیون حامل مواد منفجره در خارج ساختمان سفارت منفجر شد. بخش بزرگی از ساختمان سفارت و ساختمان ۲۵ طبقه بانک که در کنار آن قرار داشت ویران شد.
پنج دقیقه بعد یک تانکر پر از مواد منفجره در خارج سفارت آمریکا در دارالسلام منفجر شد.

جولی اوگیه، بینایی یکی از چشم‌هایش را در این حمله تروریستی از دست داد اما میگوید که خوش شانس بوده که جان سالم به در برده است 
جولی برای خبرنگار بی‌بی‌سی تعریف کرد که چطور به هوا پرتاب شد و پس افتادن به زمین حجم زیادی از آوار ساختمان به روی بدنش ریخت.
او می‌گوید: "زخم‌های عمیقی برداشته بودم و وقتی که پرستار سعی در تمیز کردن زخم‌ها داشت خون فوران کرد و پرستار فریاد کشید که این دختر از خونریزی می‌میرد."
"بعد از آن بدون بیهوشی زخم‌ها را بخیه زدند، به ما گفته بودند که باید تحمل کنیم، فرصتی برای بیهوش کردن نبود."
"سعی کردم یک گوشه بنشینم. به کشیش گفتم، لطفا بگذارید به خانه بروم، نمی‌خواهم اینجا باشم. اما او به من گفت که یک چشم من از جا در آمده است. فکر می‌کنم شوکه شدم و از هوش رفتم."
برای نجات جولی، سه عمل جراحی روی بدن او انجام شد از جمله یک عمل جراحی در کشور آلمان.
او با وجودیکه یکی از چشم‌هایش را از دست داده است اما خود را خوش شانس می‌داند و احساس می‌کند که این بیست سال زندگی به موهبتی به او بوده است.

القاعده چه شد؟

ساعاتی پس از این حملات، موشک‌های کروز آمریکایی نقاطی را در افغانستان و سودان هدف قرار دادند که گفته شد کمپ‌های تمرینات القاعده و انبار مهمات شیمیایی بوده است. واشنگتن گفت که این واکنشی به حملات القاعده بوده است.

واکنش آمریکا با خشم اتحادیه عرب را برانگیخت و تجمعات اعتراضی در افغانستان، پاکستان و سودان برگزار شد.
اما تعقیب بیرحمانه این گروه بوسیله آمریکا، سرانجام به تضعیف شبکه القاعده انجامید. اسامه بن‌لادن، رهبر این شبکه که حملات یازدهم سپتامبر را طراحی کرده بود، بوسیله نیروهای آمریکایی در پاکستان در سال ۲۰۱۱ کشته شد.
شبکه القاعده از شکلی که در سال ۱۹۹۸ در پاکستان تشکیل شد، شاخه شاخه شده است و هر کدام از گروه‌ها مستقل و جداگانه در مناطق مختلف فعالیت می‌کنند.
باقیمانده اصلی این گروه در شمال آفریقا، شبه جزیره عربستان و شبه قاره هند فعالیت دارند.
گروهی که در اصل القاعده در عراق بودند بعدها به نام گروه موسوم به دولت اسلامی، داعش ظاهر شدند.

Senior UN official blasted for floating Israel's suspension from world body
A United Nations human rights expert is under fire after suggesting Israel could have its member status at the world body suspended over alleged violations of international law.

Michael Lynk, the special rapporteur for human rights in the Palestinian territories, made the remarks at a side event during a July session of the Human Rights Council -- the controversial panel the U.S. withdrew from last month.

Audio of the event, “Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory: Systematic Violations with Impunity,” was obtained by Fox News from NGO Monitor -- a Jerusalem-based research institute analyzing non-governmental organizations (NGOs) claiming to advance humanitarian agendas.

In that audio, Lynk describes Israel as an “illegal occupant,” and says “the international community has not simply the ability, but also the responsibility and obligation to bring [settlements] to an end.”

He then goes on to say that there are “a number of tools” that the international community can use to bring Israel back in line.
Amb. Danon blasts official who suggested Israel be suspended from U.N.
Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon harshly criticized a suggestion by UN official Michael Lynk that Israel be suspended from the world body over what the United Nations characterizes as violations of international law, Fox News reported Wednesday.

Lynk's comments is “another reason why the [Human Rights Council] lost its credibility,” Danon said.

“Mahmoud Abbas knows that actions such as this do nothing to encourage peace," Danon said in an interview on Fox News. "In fact, it actively works against it, and encourages incitement and a culture of hate."

“The international community has not simply the ability, but also the responsibility and obligation to bring [settlements] to an end,” Lynk, Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories for the UN, told a July session of the Human Rights Council, adding that there are “a number of tools” the international community can use to change Israeli actions.

“It may mean reviewing or suspending Israel’s privileges as a state member in the United Nations,” Lynk said. “It may mean that countries in the world, particularly those with significant trading or political relationships with Israel, would review their relationships with Israel in the military, political, diplomatic and economic investment spheres. It may mean that Israel would face some forms of restrictions in its abilities to wind up trading.”

The United States withdrew from the Human Rights Council in June, citing what it characterized as the body's biased treatment of Israel and its failure to address serious abuses throughout the world.
Elliott Abrams: Saudi Arabia and Canada
What was the Canadian action that led to this fierce reaction? A tweet from Canada’s foreign minister saying “Very alarmed to learn that Samar Badawi, Raif Badawi’s sister, has been imprisoned in Saudi Arabia,” and that “Canada stands together with the Badawi family in this difficult time, and we continue to strongly call for the release of both Raif and Samar Badawi.” And the following day a tweet from the foreign ministry saying “Canada is gravely concerned about additional arrests of civil society and women’s rights activists in #SaudiArabia, including Samar Badawi. We urge the Saudi authorities to immediately release them and all other peaceful #humanrights activists.”

These are not harsh or shocking statements. The Raif Badawi case has long been a matter of international concern and comment. The United States commented in 2015 that “We are greatly concerned by reports that human rights activist Raif Badawi will start facing the inhumane punishment of a 1,000 lashes, in addition to serving a 10-year sentence in prison for exercising his rights to freedom of expression and religion. The United States Government calls on Saudi authorities to cancel this brutal punishment and to review Badawi’s case and sentence.” This is surely tougher than the Canadian comments. Moreover, the United States had no actual link to the case whereas Badawi’s wife and three children are now Canadian citizens. In addition, there has been plenty of comment about the current combination in Saudi Arabia of social and economic reform with the government’s absolute insistence on setting the pace of change—and punishing Saudis who seek to increase it. For example, just days before the kingdom allowed women to drive it punished women activists who had long sought that change.

The Saudi position amounts to this: no government may comment on anything that happens in the kingdom. Any such comment is a violation of Saudi sovereignty. Thus the phrase in the Saudi statement that the Canadian comments were “against basic international norms and all international protocols.”
PATHETIC: Trudeau Gave $50 MILLION Of Our Taxpayer Dollars To The Palestinians. Then They Sided With Saudi Arabia & Condemned Us
Once again, Justin Trudeau has let Canada get played like a fool.

As I recently reported, the Trudeau government gave $50 MILLION of our taxpayer dollars to the Palestinians.

“$12.65 million will go to the Palestinians through the United Nations and other ‘international organizations,’ while most of the rest will go towards other NGOs who will disperse the money.”

But did that get us any goodwill?

NOPE.

After relations between us and the Saudis broke down, the Palestinians sided with Saudi Arabia and condemned us:

As noted in a recent report, “Palestinian news agency Wafa reported on Monday that Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas stands with Saudi Arabia in a political row with Canada, rejecting what it called Ottawa’s “blatant interference” in Riyadh’s internal affairs. He also called on the Arab countries to stand by the Kingdom to reject and condemn the Canadian intervention in its internal affairs.”

So, Justin Trudeau took $50 million away from the Canadian People, and gave it to the Palestinians, who then sided with our opponent and condemned us.

How stupid can a government possibly be?

Why the hell are we giving our money to people who hate us and oppose everything we stand for?



Israel and Gaza: How did we get here?
In the years to follow, Hamas continued to misuse funds and supplies in Gaza. Over $120 million worth of concrete originally intended to develop civilian infrastructure was used to build terror tunnels to infiltrate Israel. These tunnels were used as early as 2006 in the kidnapping of IDF soldier, Sergeant 1st Class Gilad Shalit.

Since then, Hamas has continued to waste concrete on terror tunnels, and in the construction process, has killed more than 400 Palestinians, including at least 160 children. Attempts were made to smuggle weapons into Gaza via the Mediterranean Sea, which led to the imposition of a legal naval blockade. Additionally, rocket and mortar shell fire continued, inflicting wide-spread damage and trauma on Israel’s southern residents in particular, which lead to the development of the Iron Dome aerial defense system.

Today, the relationship between Israel and Gaza remains tense. Yet Gazan civilians are still allowed to enter Israel to receive medical treatment, pray, study, travel, and work on a daily basis. Israel regularly facilitates the transfer of humanitarian supplies to the Gaza Strip through the Kerem Shalom Crossing, even in times of conflict, including during Operation Protective Edge in 2014.

Hamas remains accountable for controlling the Gaza Strip, and continues to put its terror-based goals above the needs of its people. They insist on inciting violence and wasting vital supplies on terror activity. The IDF will continue to operate as necessary to safeguard the security needs of the State of Israel, and is ready to defend Israeli civilians and sovereignty.
Hamas Source: 5-Year Truce to Include Return of 4 Israelis at Some Point
A truce between Hamas and Israel will be officially unveiled by the end of August, according to Turkey’s official news agency Anadolu, quoting a Hamas source.

The source, speaking on condition of anonymity, said that as part of the deal, which was brokered by Egypt and the UN with input from Turkey and Qatar, Hamas and Israel would initially observe a two-week trial cease-fire.

The truce, which is planned to last five years, would include the release of four Israelis: the remains of two fallen IDF soldiers and two living, mentally handicapped men who wondered across the Gaza border including two soldiers.

The Anadolu report did not specify at which stage of the truce the release would be carried out, nor whether or not it would involve releasing Hamas terrorists who are behind bars in Israel.

Under the agreement’s terms, according to the same Hamas official, the Rafah border crossing between Egypt and the Gaza Strip would be opened on a permanent basis, and Israeli restrictions on the Kerem Shalom border crossing would also be eased “dramatically.”
IDF closes roads near Gaza over fears of revenge attack
The military closed off a highway in southern Israel on Wednesday out of concerns that the Hamas terrorist group in the Gaza Strip may open fire at Israeli vehicles as revenge for an exchange the day before in which the army killed two Hamas members.

The military said the decision to close Route 25 and several smaller service roads near the border was made in light of recent threats by Hamas and after IDF soldiers saw that the terror group had begun abandoning several of its positions in the Strip — a move Hamas generally takes as a precaution before carrying out attacks against Israel.

“In light of Hamas statements and the evacuation of Hamas outposts, the Southern Command decided to increase readiness and to close a number of roadways in the Gaza periphery,” the Israel Defense Forces said in a statement.
Terrorists shoot at civilians near Gaza
Terrorists from the Gaza Strip opened fire on civilian workers engaged in the construction of the barrier along the security fence near the northern Gaza Strip Wednesday afternoon.

According to the IDF, an engineering vehicle was struck by gunfire from Gaza.

No injuries were reported.

Earlier Tuesday, the IDF Southern Command decided to reinforce the Gaza Division and close several access routes in the area adjacent to the Gaza Strip in response to threats from the Hamas terrorist organization.
UN humanitarian agency calls on Israel to let fuel into Gaza Strip
A UN aid agency on Wednesday urged Israel to let emergency fuel into the Gaza Strip to avert the shutdown of hospitals and sanitation facilities.

Jamie McGoldrick, from the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, called Israel’s restriction of fuel imports “a dangerous practice, with grave consequences on the rights of people in Gaza.”

Israel halted the supply of petroleum and natural gas to Gaza last week after there was no pause in incendiary kites and balloons launched from Gaza into southern Israel, arson attacks that have gone on for months accompanied by border clashes. The violence has at times escalated into exchanges of fire on the border, rocket attacks from Gaza on southern Israeli cities, and Israeli airstrikes on Hamas targets.

Israel temporarily suspended fuel shipments to Gaza in July for similar reasons. The airborne arson attacks have started hundreds of fires that consumed thousands of acres of farmland and countryside, causing millions of shekels in damage.
Hearing the real story from Jewish National Fund-USA
A tour around “the Gaza Envelope,” the western Negev, reveals a conventional life dealing with unconventional circumstances.

Along open roads are bomb shelters, some even painted with beautiful patterns to make something so unnatural not seem intimidating to children who rely on fleeing to these shelters often on a daily basis – or even multiple times a day.

Some playgrounds are indoors, like the Indoor Recreation Center in Sderot. With a mere 15 seconds to run for cover, playing out in the open is a luxury children of the South can ill afford.

“We established the world’s first protected playground with the amazing Jewish National Fund-USA, spearheaded by CEO Russell F. Robinson, who invested heavily in the playground so children could play without fear,” remarked Sderot Mayor Alon Davidi.

“Sadly, the hundreds of kids who come here every day are used to this,” playground manager Shmuel Ohayon laments. “They are used to frequent drills in school, running to bomb shelters at home, and if there’s trauma, they have psychologists to speak to. Seventy-four percent of them have some sort of post-traumatic stress disorder [PTSD].”
A Democratic Nation State of the Jewish People
As Prime Minister Netanyahu's Advisor for World Communities, part of my job is to listen to what people around the world have to say. Much of what I have heard from critics following the passage of Basic Law: Israel - Nation State of the Jewish People is mistaken and misinformed. The accusations about the new law's effects on Israeli democracy have no connection to the actual content or context of the law.

The new Basic Law was passed to fill a constitutional void. Israel, like the United Kingdom, lacks a written constitution and instead relies on a set of basic laws. Israel already has basic laws to protect individual freedoms (such as Basic Law: Human Dignity and Liberty). Israel lacked a basic law defining the identity and purpose of the state.

During the seven-year debate surrounding the Nation State Law, there was a broad consensus that a basic law was needed to define the identity of the country. However, the new basic law does not contradict or supersede the basic laws that protect and guarantee individual rights of all citizens regardless of ethnicity, religion or gender.

The new law does not erode a single right or protection of any minority. It actually reaffirms Israel's commitment to minority groups.

The new law also, for the first time, constitutionally enshrines Arabic as a language with "special status." It affirms that "the status given to the Arabic language before this law came into effect will not be harmed."
Isi Leibler: Hysteria over nation-state law
Most Israeli Arabs are happy to live in Israel – the only democracy in a region of barbaric conflict and dictatorships. They enjoy a higher standard of living and better opportunities than they would in any Arab country. An increasing number are engaged in professions and one need only enter an Israeli hospital where Arab and Jewish medical staff treat Jewish and Arab patients on a basis of equality, in order to repudiate slanders of apartheid or racism.

The rule of law applies to Arab citizens as it does to any other Israeli. They enjoy freedom of religion and do not live in fear of punitive amputations or decapitation as prevails in much of the region.

This law was designed to ratify classical Zionism, reject post-Zionism and reiterate that Israel is a Jewish state. Yet not a single clause can be construed as racist, denigrates minorities or suggests that they will be denied state support. Israel remains a democratic Jewish state with or without the law, which merely seeks to reinforce its identity.

There are legitimate grounds for criticizing the law, particularly errors of omission by the government due to a lack of foresight, but the hyperbole used by some of those opposing it is malicious and will foment hatred within Israel and provide aid to those nations seeking to besmirch us.
The masquerade is over
What's all the fuss about? The spirit of the nation-state law has engulfed Israel for decades already. The law says that the land of Israel is the historical homeland of the Jewish people; and that the state established in this land is the nation-state of the Jewish people in which they are realizing their natural, cultural, religious, and historical right to self-determination. According to the law, the realization of the right to self-determination in the State of Israel is exclusive to the Jewish people.

Here are a few other trivialities: Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. Hebrew is the national language, and Arabic has a special status. The nation will be open to aliyah [Jewish immigration] and to an ingathering of the exiles. The state will be responsible for ensuring the safety of its citizens and other members of the Jewish people who are in distress or imprisoned because of their Jewishness or their Israeli citizenship. The state will work in the Diaspora to uphold the ties between it and the Jewish people abroad and will work to preserve the Jewish people's cultural, historical, and religious legacy in the Diaspora. The state sees national value in developing Jewish settlement and will take steps to encourage and promote new and existing settlements.

Any honest person will admit that the nation-state law is a clear expression of the political consensus in Israel. Most members of the Zionist parties would certainly sign a declaration like this one, if it wouldn't cause a political scandal. What's more, the vast majority of high school graduates can't understand the objection to it.
EU skips over Israel
The European Union has formulated a plan to establish a transportation infrastructure to connect Gaza to Judea and Samaria without informing or involving elements in Israel.

According to today's report on Reshet Bet as part of the plan it is proposed to build huge infrastructures also including "Area C" - places retained in the Oslo Accords under full Israeli control.

Formulation of the plan in the European Union took 18 months and is scheduled to take 30 years to implement. According to the plan, air- and seaports will be established, plus an extensive network of railways and roads that would connect all parts of Judea and Samaria to Gaza.

Although the plan includes many areas under Israeli control including in East Jerusalem, the EU did not bother to update the Civil Administration or other elements in Israel.

Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz said the plan was known to him. "I made it clear that Gaza will not connect to Judea and Samaria. All their plans are on paper and are completely unacceptable," Katz said in an interview with Reshet Bet.
Brazil presidential front-runner vows to close Palestinian embassy
Brazil’s front-running presidential candidate has announced he will close the Palestinian embassy in Brasilia in addition to moving his country’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“Is Palestine a country? Palestine is not a country, so there should be no embassy here,” Jair Bolsonaro, a lawmaker from the Social Liberal Party, declared on Tuesday when the National Congress reopened after a three-week recess. “You do not negotiate with terrorists,” he added.

He particularly slammed the fact that Palestinian Authority diplomatic representation is located less than two miles (3.2 kilometers) from the Planalto Palace, Brazil’s government headquarters.

The right-wing lawmaker is a strong admirer and supporter of Israel. Elections are scheduled to be held in Brazil on October 7.

Brazil recognized Palestine as an independent state in 2010 as part of former far-left President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva’s alignment with extremist governments such as Iran and Libya. At that time, Brazil donated $10 million to the Hamas terror group, which rules the Gaza Strip and is vowed to Israel’s destruction. Lula’s political heir, Dilma Rousseff, continued the anti-Israel sentiment during her term until she was impeached in 2016.
French President Macron cancels Israel visit
A year ago, Macron said he would visit Israel and the Palestinian Authority in the spring of 2018 to push for the renewal of Israeli-Palestinians peace talks. The visit was then postponed from the spring to the fall, and has now been cancelled entirely.

Paris did not provide a reason for the cancellation, but it is likely tied to the political crisis Macron is facing at home after his bodyguard was filmed assaulting May Day protesters.

The incident sparked the biggest political crisis of Macron's tenure. Critics say Macron’s office failed to properly punish the head of his security detail or refer him promptly to judicial authorities over the incident. They say Macron’s handling of the case shows he has lost touch with ordinary people since taking office 14 months ago.

Footage showed the bodyguard, Alexandre Benalla, hitting a male protester and dragging away a woman while off duty and wearing a riot helmet and police tags.

“I alone bear responsibility. They can come and get me. I answer to the French people,” Macron told a gathering of members of parliament from his party.
Israel is suspected again of assassinating an enemy’s rocket scientist. Do these killings pay off?
Does the plan work?

Sometimes it backfires. The attempts on Arafat fed his legend and lent him stature among Palestinians. Israeli commandos in 1988 killed Khalil al-Wazir, also known as Abu Jihad, in Tunis in 1988. Abu Jihad, Arafat’s second-in-command, also was among the Palestinian leaders seeking accommodation with Israel. The killing did nothing to stop the first intifada. Israeli leaders believed that Abu Jihad was directing its violence, but it was a homegrown affair.

Other times, when a critical actor is killed, it appears to have results. The 1996 assassination of Ayyash, “The Engineer,” was followed by a rash of bus bombings believed to have been planned before his death – and then several years of relative quiet.

Schanzer said the policy may work in conjunction with an overall strategy. The campaign against Iran’s nuclear scientists, he said, was coupled with cyber warfare that for a time crippled Iran’s uranium enrichment and tough sanctions that slowed its nuclear program.

“Israelis have always used targeted assassination as not the only means but as one element of a broader strategy,” he said.
Russia and Israel reach understanding on Golan border line
Israel and Russia have reached an understanding to ensure the preservation of the 1974 cease-fire line on the Golan Heights, according to Israel’s Ambassador to Russia Gary Koren.

According to a TASS Russian News Agency report, Koren – who met with Russian journalists in Stavropol in southern Russia Monday – said, “we coordinated the arrangement under which Russia pledged to make sure, as it were, that the Syrian Army will not cross the cease-fire line established under the 1974 agreement. It looks like everything is functioning for the time being. I hope it will be so in the future, as well.”

Koren said Israel insisted on the full withdrawal of Iranian troops from Syria.

The 1974 Separation of Forces Agreement between Israel and Syria, which followed the Yom Kippur War, separated Israel and Syrian troops and created a 235-km. buffer zone in the Golan Heights. Israel demands the buffer zone be respected, even as it is deeply concerned that Iranian or Shia forces moving south with Syrian President Bashar Assad’s troops may try to violate it.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stressed during his visit to Moscow in July that respecting the Separation of Forces Agreement was a red line for Israel in Syria.
Israeli UN Envoy Urges New Head of South Lebanon Peacekeeping Force to Push Back Harder Against Hezbollah
Italian Maj. Gen. Stefano Del Col replaced Irish Maj. Gen. Michael Beary as the new commander of the UN peacekeeping force in southern Lebanon on Tuesday — a development that was welcomed by a top Israeli diplomat.

“UNIFIL is an important force, with more than 10,000 soldiers,” Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said in a statement. “Its more robust mandate is designed to push back against the blatant, unauthorized arms buildup of Hezbollah, a proxy of Iran, in southern Lebanon. With a new commander, there is a new opportunity to fulfill more of this important mission.”

Danon’s office explained: “UNIFIL’s mandate has been to restore peace and security to the Israeli – Lebanese border. Following the Second Lebanon War in 2006, its mandate was expanded to include monitoring the area between the Blue Line and Litani River, and keep it free of armed personnel, other than Lebanese government or UNIFIL forces. Last September, the US and Israel worked together to further expand UNIFIL’s mandate by authorizing patrols with Lebanese forces and requiring reports when peacekeepers run into Hezbollah roadblocks.”

Recent UNIFIL commanders — including Beary, who assumed the position in July 2016 — have all served terms of 2-3 years.
Druze-Israeli advances as Iraqi foe refuses to fight
Israel’s Amit Mdah advanced to the semifinals at the IFMA Youth Muaythai World Championships in Bangkok this week when his Iraqi opponent refused to compete in their quarterfinal match.

Mdah, 17, a resident of the village of Kisra-Sumei in the Western Galilee, holds the European title and won a bronze medal at the World Youth Championships a year ago. This time he was guaranteed a medal after his Iraqi rival Mohammed Jalal did not appear in the battle against him. Before that he won 10-9 against Hamdan Mohammed from the United Arab Emirates.

The protest of the Druze community in the wake of the Nation-State Law occupies one of the main topics of discussion in Israeli society these days. However, Druze athletes continue to represent the country successfully, bring honor, and also suffer from anti-Israeli behavior by competitors from Arab countries.

Mdah, who competes in the under-57 kg category, faced Russian Mohammed Yusuf Momonhomov late Tuesday in the semifinals.

The Israeli delegation to the championships includes eight male athletes and two female athletes, aged 11 to 17. Before the competition, the young athletes were in a training camp in Thailand.
Israel helps PA Arabs make pilgrimage to Mecca
The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT), headed by Maj. Gen. Kamil Abu Rokun, prepares every year for the passage of thousands of Arabs from all over Judea and Samaria to Mecca, Saudi Arabia via the Allenby Bridge.

In a post to the Arabic COGAT Facebook page, Maj. Gen. Kamil Abu Rukun wrote to the Palestinian Authority residents: "We are prepared for a quick and easy passage for all the pilgrims from Judea and Samaria who are observing the holiday. I wish you and the Muslim world a pleasant and happy journey, and a blessed holiday."

Approximately 5,200 PA residents are expected to cross the Allenby Bridge this week to make the pilgrimage to Mecca, which is known as the Hajj. The pilgrimage is being coordinated with the Palestinian Authority, Jordan and the Airports Authority. 88 buses were organized to bring the pilgrims across on Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday.

In addition, a special area was established in the city of Jericho, called "State of Al-Khawaja", to arrange and register residents in advance for the Allenby Bridge buses. From the Allenby Bridge the pilgrims continue on buses through Jordan to Mecca.
Palestinians jailed for trying to rob biblical archaeological site
Three Palestinians were sent to 36 days in prison on Tuesday for damaging and attempting to rob a major archaeological site in the northern West Bank last month.

The men, whose names haven’t been released, were arrested at 1:00 a.m. on July 18 at the location of the ancient town of Sebastia, which contains overlapping layers of history dating back nearly 3,000 years.

They were caught by an inspector for the archaeology division of the Civil Administration, the Israeli body that oversees civilian affairs in the West Bank, while carrying digging equipment and a metal detector. The site, just outside the city of Nablus, was found vandalized, Hebrew-language media reported.

A hilltop capital of biblical kings later ruled by Roman conquerors, crusaders, and Ottomans, Sebastia — also known nowadays as the Samaria National Park — is caught between conflicting Israeli and Palestinian jurisdictions, and the site has been largely neglected by both sides for the past two decades. Beyond the decay, unauthorized diggers and thieves have taken advantage of the lack of oversight to make off with priceless artifacts.

Congress Forces Al Jazeera, Other Foreign Media to Disclose Ties
Congress recently approved new legislation that would force foreign-owned media organizations such as Qatar's Al Jazeera to register as a foreign agent under U.S. law.

The legislation, included in the annual National Defense Authorization Act, or NDAA, would mandate that foreign-owned media organizations register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act, or FARA, a move that would shine greater sunlight on these organizations' ties to foreign governments.

Al Jazeera in particular has become a poster child for those in Congress backing the legislation. A delegation of lawmakers, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R., Texas) and Rep. Lee Zeldin (R., N.Y.), have been championing the legislation for months, arguing that Al Jazeera and others should be forced to admit their close ties to foreign governments.

Proponents of the legislation argue that media outlets such as Al Jazeera have tried to hide their agenda behind the guise of objective journalism. Al Jazeera, for instance, recently faced intense scrutiny on Capitol Hill for running a secret, months-long spy operation on American Jewish activists and their allies in Congress on order from the Qatari government.
Iran has only begun to feel the pain of Trump’s sanctions
As the Iranian regime reels under the strain of renewed sanctions, the Trump administration is already preparing the next phase.

We see too little of it in our press, but Iranians are increasingly taking to the streets and the clerics’ hold on power is weakening.

And it’s about to get worse for the regime. A new round of US sanctions, announced in advance, kicked in Monday. It restricts currency transfers and bans trade in gold, silver, aluminum, steel and other metals.

Most of the new sanctions have already been factored in, changing the way the world does business in Iran. European politicians, who’ve sanctified President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal, are calling on companies to stay put and do business in Iran, as the seven-party Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action dictates.

But business is business.

After the nuke deal was signed, France’s Renault was eager to position itself for the day all sanctions would be removed, cutting deals to dominate Iran’s car market. Anticipating Monday’s sanctions, however, Renault announced an end to all its Iran businesses in July — even though it sells no cars in America.
Experts: New U.S. Sanctions on Iran Impose Cost on Regime’s Hostile Behavior
The first round of U.S. sanctions reinstated against Iran this week makes clear to the Islamic Republic the Trump administration's willingness to financially squeeze the regime until it curbs its destabilizing behavior, according to regional experts.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday warned that firms doing business with Iran would be blocked from the U.S. market as new sanctions hit the country despite appeals from Washington's allies.

The sanctions are part of a steadily increasing pressure campaign implemented after Trump in May decided to withdraw the United States from the Obama-era Iran nuclear accord that sought to limit Tehran's nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.

The administration will ratchet up pressure on Tehran's economy in early November when U.S. sanctions on Iranian oil are due to snapback.

The renewed U.S. sanctions go into effect as protests escalate against Iran's hardline ruling party over its immense military spending, which has crippled an already weak Iranian economy.
Trump's Ambassador To Germany Scores Another Victory Against Iran
U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell is quietly convincing German companies to discontinue business with Iran.

Grenell has scored a series of victories in recent days by successfully lobbying against a $400 million payment from the German central bank to the Islamic Republic and convincing car company Daimler to cancel expansion plans in the country.

Many German businesses rushed to do business with Iran after the signing of the nuclear deal in 2015.

The Trump administration, however, has pulled out of the nuclear deal and announced Monday that it would re-impose the same economic sanctions on Iran that the Obama administration removed as part of the deal. The new economic sanctions will limit Iranian ability to use the U.S. dollar, to trade in precious metals, and target its import/export businesses to the United States.

The sanctions also affect any business that wishes do business with U.S. entities.

“The Trump administration intends to fully enforce the sanctions reimposed against Iran, and those who fail to wind down activities with Iran risk severe consequences,” the White House warned in a Monday release.
Will US sanctions really stop Iran from backing terror?
Will the economic sanction imposed by Washington on Iran cause it to abandon the path of terror? For the time being, as one expert told Israel Hayom on Tuesday, the answer appears to be no.

"To understand the influence of sanctions on the Iranian regime's behavior, you must first understand the modus operandi of Iranian banks and the Revolutionary Guard Corps,"explained Yossi Mansharof, a researcher of Iran and Shiite militias at the University of Haifa's Ezri Center for Iran and Persian Gulf Studies.

"More than a few Iranian banks were included in the sanctions that were in place before the nuclear deal in 2015, because they were involved in money laundering for the Revolutionary Guards. Over the past six years, several European banks have been fined billions of dollars by the American authorities after admitting to helping the Iranian regime bypass the sanctions and launder billions of dollars," he said.

"The method that keeps recurring in Iran is the use of straw companies, which the U.S. authorities keep trying to expose, just as we saw in the United Arab Emirates recently. The U.S. administration still has its work cut out for it in this department, it appears," Mansharof said.
Yazidi Slavery, Child Trafficking, Death Threats to Journalist: Should Turkey Remain in NATO?
Addressing the US House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee on December 9, 2015, Mirza Ismail, founder and chairman of the Yezidi Human Rights Organization-International, said, in part:

"We Yezidis are desperate for your immediate help and support. During our six-thousand-year history, Yezidis have faced 74 genocides in the Middle East, including the ongoing genocide. Why? Simply because we are not Muslims. We are an ancient and proud people from the heart of Mesopotamia, the birth place of civilization and the birth place of many of the world's religions. And here we are today, in 2015, on the verge of annihilation. In response to our suffering around the World there is profound, obscene silence. We Yezidis are considered 'Infidels' in the eyes of Muslims, and so they are encouraged to kill, rape, enslave, and convert us."
...
"I am pleading with each and every one of you in the name of humanity to lend us your support at this crucial time to save the indigenous and peaceful peoples of the Middle East."


Three years after this impassioned plea, Yazidis are still being enslaved and sold by ISIS, with Turkish involvement, while the life of the journalist who exposed the crime is threatened. Reuniting the kidnapped Yazidis with their families and bringing the perpetrators to justice should be a priority of civilized governments worldwide, not only to help stop the persecution and enslavement of Yazidis, but also to defeat jihad.

The question is whether NATO member Turkey is a part of the solution or part of the problem. Should Turkey, with the path it is on, be allowed even to remain a member of NATO?
Trump Admin Offers $10 Million Bounty on Top al Qaeda Leaders
The Trump administration announced on Wednesday that it is offering $10 million for information leading to the location, arrest, or conviction of two top al Qaeda leaders, doubling the bounty from its previous amount of five million dollars.

The bounty was first placed on the al Qaeda leaders in December 2000, but the United States has yet to apprehend or locate the individuals.

"The U.S. Department of State's Rewards for Justice Program is increasing reward offers for information leading to the location, arrest, or conviction of al-Qaida key leaders Abdullah Ahmed Abdullah and Sayf al-Adl to $10 million," the State Department said in a release. "This represents a doubling of the previous reward offers of $5 million each announced in December 2000."

"Both individuals served as members of al-Qaida's leadership council, and al-Adl also served on the group's military committee," according to the State Department.

The terrorist leaders were initially charged by a federal grand jury in November 1998 for their role in the bombing of the U.S. embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and in Nairobi, Kenya.

Homelessness is a growing problem in many countries, for different reasons: in England, the migrant crisis; in Vancouver, Canada, lack of affordable housing; and in the U.S., often veterans fighting post-traumatic stress. One of the challenges in combating homelessness and ensuring adequate care is that the data regarding homeless populations isn’t standardized across sectors. This makes it difficult to coordinate care across multiple organizations.

The Community Technology Alliance (CTA), founded in 1991 to develop data-driven solutions to poverty and homelessness, is charged with coordinating data collection and cleansing. This information is put into dashboards to help understand needs of the homeless and to coordinate and provide care across multiple agencies. In 2015, with support from the Tableau Foundation and Interworks, CTA launched a data fellows program to develop data leads tasked with using data to tell a story about homelessness in their cities. This is just one example of Data for Good.

Data can be used for the good of society

Data and analytics leaders are in a unique position to build programs that benefit the Data for Good movement, in which people and organizations transcend organizational boundaries to use data to improve society.

“If you are a chief data officer or responsible for setting forth data strategies for your organization, you are in a unique position to restore some of the decline in trust in businesses by proactively pursuing use cases of ‘data for good,’” says Cindi Howson, research vice president,at Gartner. “Data can be used for the good of society, but private- and public-sector firms, nonprofits and NGOs still lack analytics resources and expertise. Data and analytics leaders must cross traditional boundaries to use data for good, to better compete for limited talent and to foster an ethical culture.”

CTA isn’t the only organization using data for the betterment of society. MasterCard anonymizes credit card data to be analyzed for smart city initiatives. Google offers hospitals search data to predict infection disease outbreaks and Yelp offers ratings data to cities to prioritize food safety inspectors.

Attract data and analytics talent with Data for Good programs

Data for Good programs can be an effective way to attract data and analytics talent. New college graduates are increasingly looking for companies that afford them an opportunity to pursue projects that benefit the community or larger world. A recent Gartner survey found that one of the top two reasons female students study data and analytics was the desire to have an impact on their company and the world. At the same time, data and analytics jobs are increasing in numbers and difficult to fill. Offering paid time to pursue projects to help the community can differentiate a company in a highly competitive environment.

Companies are able to share data with the intention it be used for social good, assuming data owners are made aware

This is precisely what Nationwide Insurance did in 2007 when the then-CEO discovered the low high school graduation rates in his hometown of Columbus, OH. The company’s data and analytics experts donated their time to provide data that measured proficiencies and identified an early warning for struggling students. This pro bono project was so successful it was spun off into its own nonprofit.

Evaluate commercial data for social purposes

Companies can evaluate their data, both internal and external, for potential uses in Data for Good efforts. Generally companies are able to share data with the intention it be used for social good, assuming data owners are made aware of the possibility. For example, MasterCard shared anonymized data with New York University to check on the success of its redevelopment projects, smart city initiatives and programs to reduce greenhouse gases. The company has also tracked the benefits of microlending in Kenya.

Whether it's working with other companies to help address homelessness, allowing employees to spend a certain amount of days on a community project, or sharing data, data and analytics leaders, including CDOs, are in a unique position to establish Data for Good programs.

Kenya women holding has re-branded to Echo Africa Network as it raises red flag on gender based violence cases in the country. In a media briefing in Nairobi, chair of Echo Africa Network, Jane Mwai and CEO Jennifer Riria said that they opted to re-brand the organization in order to avert confusion with other organizations especially those offering banking services. They said that branding is inclined to expand their services including their roles, by being a developmental organization which will seek to partner with communities and county governments to initiate projects which will empower women, people living with disability, youth and men too. The organization indicated that it will initiate projects which will see women across the country realize the 2/3 gender rule. On the other hand, Riria said that Echo Africa Network is greatly concerned over increase of gender based violence being experienced across the country not only to women but to men too. “When you talk about gender based violence, it is not only violence against women but also girls, boys and men,” Riria said On Wednesday Daudi Nzomo, the man filmed assaulting his wife in Makueni was slapped with a 12 year jail term over his action.

Hi there,

My fiancee and I (we are Australian and Swedish) are going on a 2 month tour through eastern and southern Africa. We will be visiting the following countries:

Kenya (2 times, via flight from copenhagen and then back from Uganda)
Uganda (2 times, from Kenya and then back from Rwanda)
Rwanda
Tanzania
Malawi
Zambia
Botswana
Namibia
South Africa

We have heard that you don't need to get visas for all of them before hand (apart from Rwanda for my Fiancee), and we would very much like some advice on which need visas before entry:

Kenya - We both need multiple entry as we enter country twice? Can we get at border?
Uganda - Same as Kenya, can we get at border?
Rwanda - I do not require Visa but my partner has to get it beforehand?
Tanzania - We both need Visas, can we get at border?
Malawi - We both do not need visas
Zambia - We both need visas, can we get at border?
Botswana - We both do not need visas
Namibia - We both do not need visas
South Africa - We both do not need visas.

I would be very glad to receive any enlightenment on this!

Thank you

          Rare sight of elephants eating bird nests in Kenya      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Wildlife videographer Matt Brierley captured two elephants eating bird nests containing live chicks and eggs. It is thought that elephants only eat vegetation. The clip, captured on February 28 in Kenya, shows two elephants catching weaver bird nests on the branches of a tree with their trunk and taking them to the mouth. Brierley writes: ''The jury is still out on how accidental the consumption was, but an elephant certainly needs lots of salts, and lots of calcium for their tusks and constantly eroding teeth. ''The weaver bird nests would contain both salts and calcium, all wrapped up in a tasty sun-dried hay bundle. ''The weaver bird chicks that leapt from nests plucked by the elephants quickly scrambled to higher ground and were found by their parents.''

          Don Lemon Reveals Trump Called Him 'Racist' for the Most Absurd Reason      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The president has a long history of attacking black Americans.

CNN anchor Don Lemon has been a frequent target of Donald Trump's puffy wrath of late. Discussing the attacks on-air with his other CNN anchors, Lemon revealed that Trump's antipathy toward him has been both long-lasting and pointedly race-based; after a 2011 interview in which Trump was asked to defend his crackpot claims that President Barack Obama was not actually an American citizen, Trump fumed at him for the pointed questions.

“He vowed that he would never do an interview with me because he said I was racist, because I challenged him on an in-factual statement, a lie.”

“[Trump said] you’re a racist?” a confounded Dana Bash asked.

“That I was racist because of the way that I challenged him,” Lemon confirmed. “Much in the way that he thought that I can’t be unbiased about an issue concerning race, like Judge Curiel, because I’m African-American. So he accused me of being racist.”

If anything, this should perhaps be a reminder that Donald Trump was already a pudding-headed piece of crap all the way back in 2011, which we already knew from the moment he proclaimed himself god-king of the "birther" movement, a theory peddled by especially dimwitted racists that the nation's first non-white president was not actually an American citizen at all, but a Kenyan national spirited into the country in a plan (facilitated by fake Hawaiian birth records) to eventually someday become a secret Muslim Kenyan president.

And he's been calling black Americans "racist" for standing up to him for at least that long as well.

Don't everyone act surprised at once, now.


          'QAnon' Is About Much More than Trump — It Reveals the Deep Pathologies of the Republican Party      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
If you're not a believer, you will have difficulty understanding how anyone can believe such a patently ridiculous confabulation.

The political movement swirling around President Donald Trump -- formerly known as the Republican Party -- displays certain unique features but is really just the latest noxious excrescence of the American right. Like so many of its predecessors, the Trump movement is built on fear. And like every movement motivated by paranoia, its followers are mentally vulnerable to the most idiotic conspiracy theories.

Not surprisingly, since everything about Trump is always the "biggest" and the "best," his fans are flocking to a truly enormous and enormously deluded conspiracy known as QAnon, or simply, "Q."

Insofar as any sane reporter can determine, Q is an entity that delivers anonymous messages via internet chat boards (the same virtual locations that generally attract obsessive right-wing types who carry out harassment campaigns from their mothers' basements). Supposedly sent by some person or persons in the upper reaches of the federal government with ultra-secret security clearances, the Q "drops" assure us that Trump is actually dismantling the "deep state" and elite international pedophilia cults, both controlled by various liberal politicians and celebrities. Already, Q has reported the arrest of Hillary Clinton (which never happened).

According to Q, all of this exciting activity is being carried out under deep cover, with the assistance of none other than Robert Mueller himself. You see, the special counsel is secretly working to assist Trump, not to investigate him. The verbal assaults and tweets against him emanating from the White House, not to mention Fox News, represent a "false flag" deception. So does everything else that doesn't fit into the conspiracy.

Among the charms of Q is that any believer can invent his or her own version of this mysterious presence, because there are no facts to fetter the paranoid imagination. Inquire who is delivering those tantalizing internet hints, as a CNN reporter asked Q kooks at a Trump rally last week, and everyone offers a different answer: It's one person, or 10 people, or more; it's a committee of military flag officers; it's Trump himself; it's John F. Kennedy Jr., who didn't really die in an airplane crash off Martha's Vineyard in 1999 after all. (Not kidding!)

If you're not a believer, you will have difficulty understanding how anyone can believe such a patently ridiculous confabulation. Yet among the Trump faithful there are hundreds of thousands, perhaps soon millions, fervently joining the Q queue. They are eagerly awaiting "the Storm," their term for the moment of reckoning when Trump and Mueller will seize all those liberal pedophiles and march them off to Gitmo.

Among them is Roseanne Barr, who has promoted Q on her Twitter feed for months. But nearly every right-wing media personality, from Sean Hannity to Alex Jones, is stoking the crazy -- as are the Russians and their bots, of course, along with "alt-right" internet trolls like Jack Posobiec and Mike Cernovich. In other words, Q fans include all the usual suspects.

Now, manipulative charlatans on the right have been training stupid people to believe stupid things for decades, dating back to The John Birch Society and its insistence that former President Eisenhower, among others, was a conscious instrument of the "Communist conspiracy." Those claims offended principled conservatives, who kicked the Birchers out of their movement.

But in more recent years, the inclination to promote outrageous calumnies has penetrated the upper reaches of the Republican Party and its allies on the religious right and in right-wing media. Republican leaders who are appalled by these tactics are almost always too cowardly to disavow them.

So in the early '90s, furious over losing the White House to Bill and Hillary Clinton after three terms of Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, Republicans promoted vile accusations to demonize the Democrats. Major GOP figures, including House committee chairs and especially House Speaker Newt Gingrich, slyly endorsed charges they knew to be utterly false. So did Rush Limbaugh, followed later by his many imitators on Fox. And so did Rev. Jerry Falwell, a minister of the Gospel who routinely violated the Eighth Commandment for profit.

The Clintons were slimed for years with concocted stories of cocaine trafficking and murder. Now they are said to operate an international child sex trafficking ring, along with former President Barack Obama (who is really a Communist Muslim born in Kenya) and George Soros (a Jew who is really a Nazi). But those sick fantasies have already gone stale.

The freshest theory, brought to us by BuzzFeed News, is also the most refreshing: Q is merely a hoax, concocted by leftists to make the right look extra dumb. For anyone with a functioning brain, a spirit of decency and a sense of humor, that's the only conspiracy with any traction.

          Putri baik hati      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Suatu hari, seorang gadis berkunjung ke sebuah desa. Di sana sedang ada pesta rakyat. Berbagai makanan lezat pun terhidang di sana. Semua orang tampak bergembira menikmati pesta.

Namun, gadis itu tak seperti gadis lainnya yang menggunakan baju bagus. la menggunakan baju yang sangat biasa. Hal itu membuat semua gadis dan pemuda di sana enggan mendekatinya.

“Dari mana ia? Kenapa penampilannya biasa sekali?” tanya salah seorang gadis kepada teman-temannya.
Gadis yang memakai baju biasa itu mendekati sekelompok gadis tersebut, Ialu memperkenalkan  diri. Tapi, bukannya menyambut perkenalan gadis  itu, mereka justru pergi meninggalkan gadis itu  sambil bergumam tak jelas.

  “Ada apa dengan penampilanku?” pikir gadis itu bingung.

  Gadis itu pun beralih ke sekelompok pemuda mereka nampak sedang bersenda gurau.

“Hai ! bolehkah aku bergabung dengan kalian tanya gadis itu. Lagi-Iagi, bukannya disambut, gadis itu  malah ditinggal pergi.

“Dasar gadis aneh," gumam salah satu pemuda sambil berlalu.

“Apakah sesulit ini untuk memiliki teman?” ucap  gadis itu, merasa sangat sedih.

Tapi, gadis itu tak menghiraukan pandangan orang-orang.Toh, ia datang ke tempat itu untuk  bersenang-senang, bukan untuk bersedih. Gadis itu pun menikmati pesta rakyat yang diadakan satu tahun sekali itu.Alangkah meriahnya pesta itu.

Tak Iama kemudian, dari kejauhan, gadis itu melihat  seorang nenek yang sedang berjualan makanan. Kondisi pesta rakyat yang sangat ramai membuat nenek itu kesulitan berjalan. Apa lagi, tidak  ada pengunjung yang peduli padanya. Tiba- tiba...
Bruk!
Seorang pemuda tak sengaja menabrak nenek itu. Akibatnya, semua dagangan nenek itu terjatuh ke tanah. Namun, bukannya menolong, pemuda itu justru berlari kencang. Merasa kasihan , gadis berpakaian biasa itu segera mendekati nenek si penjual makanan.

“Kau tak apa-apa, Nek?” tanya gadis itu, sambil membantu mengambii makanan yang terjatuh.  

“Tidak apa - apa, Nak. Terima kasih," balas nenek si penjual makanan.

Tiba-tiba, nenek si penjual makanan menatap gadis itu lama.Tatapannya sangat Iekat.
“Sepertinya aku pernah meiihatmu. Tapi, di mana, ya?" kata nenek itu sambil mengingat - ingat. 
Mungkin, hanya kebetulan, Nek,” jawab gadis itu sambil tersenyum. 

Nenek  terus mengingat, hingga akhirnya matanya berbinar.Aha! Ia mengingat sesuatu.
“Ah, aiku ingat! Kau adalah putri raja! Apa yang sedang kau Iakukan di sini?” tanya si nenek. Saking senangnya, nenek itu tak sadar bahwa ia telah berteriak. 

Mendengar teriakan nenek, semua orang di tempat itu Iangsung melihat si gadis. Olala, gadis itu benar putri raja. Rupanya, ia sengaja tidak menggunakan baju kerajaan ke pesta rakyat.

Menyadari hal itu, kelompok gadis dan pemuda yang tadi mengejeknya merasa malu. Mereka pun meminta maaf kepada sang putri. Ah, tidak seharusnya mereka mengejek dan menilai seseorang dari luarnya seperti itu.

Pesan Moral Kawan, jangan pernah melihat seseorang dari luarnya saja ya. Belum tentu apa yang terlihat itu sama dengan kenyataan.

Mombasa, Kenya: The country could fail to realize its vision 2030 and sustainable development goals (SDG). Executive Director of Stretchers youth organization Okong’o Dickson said unemployment is still a major factor giving youth in the country sleepless nights, despite being the majority, and in a position to offer human resource to the vision. Speaking in Mombasa during international youth day, Okong’o decried the state of affairs in the country saying youth are still disillusioned over governance issues. “Youth have a major role in driving change in their community, but at times they lack skills and safe spaces to perform”, he said. He termed neglect by the government and society as a ticking time bomb saying the society is now paying for ignoring the youth. “Youths who participate in development plans have been left unaddressed hence conflict and violence,” he added. According to the organization, youth in the country are agitating for; digital space to interact virtually across borders, space to engage in governance issues. They also want the vulnerable and marginalized youth be physically accommodated.

          'Produk Anti HFMD/Flu Spray buat tuntutan tak berasas' - KKM      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Kementerian Kesihatan Malaysia (KKM) mengingatkan orang awam agar tidak keliru dengan produk Anti HFMD/Flu Spray berjenama Thymos di pasaran yang mendakwa dapat memberi pertahanan sepenuhnya terhadap virus penyakit tangan, kaki dan mulut (HFMD) dan Influenza A.

Ketua Pengarah Kesihatan Malaysia, Datuk Dr Noor Hisham Abdullah berkata, syarikat pengeluar telah dengan jelas melabelkan bahawa produk yang diperbuat daripada mineral yang diaktifkan itu boleh membunuh dengan serta merta 99.99 peratus virus-virus HFMD dan Influenza A.

“Buat masa ini, pihak syarikat didapati membuat tuntutan anti HFMD yang tidak berasas kerana tiada bukti yang kukuh menunjukkan tuntutan tersebut adalah berkesan seperti dilabelkan.

“Namun begitu, memandangkan produk ini tidak digunakan secara langsung pada manusia, maka produk ini bukanlah di bawah kawalan KKM dan tiada keperluan untuk pendaftaran di bawah agensi berkaitan di bawah KKM,” katanya dalam satu kenyataan.


Produk penyahjangkitan atau pembunuh kuman tersebut adalah untuk kegunaan luaran dengan cara menyemburnya pada baju, permukaan, permainan dan juga topeng.

KKM berkata, syarikat itu telah dinasihatkan untuk mengeluarkan tuntutan Anti HFMD/Flu bagi pasaran di Malaysia dan menggantikan dengan tuntutan yang lebih umum serta bersesuaian di label produk bagi mengelakkan kekeliruan kepada orang awam.

Orang awam disarankan mengamalkan lima perkara utama dalam pencegahan dan kawalan HFMD, iaitu penjagaan kebersihan diri; amalan cuci tangan yang betul; penjagaan kebersihan persekitaran; pemeriksaan/saringan di pintu masuk taska/tabika/tadika/pra-sekolah; dan disinfeksi atau nyahkuman permukaan-permukaan yang tercemar. - Bernama

          Combien d'années faudra-t-il pour sauver Madagascar ?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Tous azimuts, non-alignés, financements parallèles, IPPTE... Les mots à la mode se suivent et disparaissent sans demander leur reste. L'expression tendance du moment dont les politiciens s'arrachent et mettent à toutes les sauces est émergence. Qu'en est-il exactement pour Madagascar ?

Saison des élections, saison des promesses. Qui sera le meilleur dans cet exercice ? Nous étions témoin oculaire et auditif d'une déclaration sur la place du 13 mai en 2002 par un  candidat qui se battait pour ne pas faire un 2ème tour : "je me donne deux ans pour faire de Madagascar le dragon de l'océan Indien !". Andry Rajoelina, lui, affirme pouvoir rattraper le retard de Madagascar en cinq ans.  C'est un peu plus long pour Dama, dix ans. Enfin, Hery Rajaonarimampianina parle de 2030.

Tous voient en Madagascar un pays émergent. Selon la huitième édition de la note de conjoncture économique de Madagascar par la  Banque Mondiale, Madagascar enregistre une croissance économique à la hausse depuis cinq ans. Passant de 2,3 % en 2013 à environ 4,2 % en 2017, la croissance du PIB a constamment augmenté depuis 2013 et devrait s’établir à 5 % en 2018. L’incidence de pauvreté, basée sur un seuil de 1,90 dollar par jour et par parité de pouvoir d’achat, devrait baisser de 75 % en 2018 à 73 % en 2020.

Mais concrètement,  en matière d'émergence, Madagascar est encore classé parmi les pays "potentiels" au même titre que les Comores, l'Ethiopie et la Mozambique, selon l’Observatoire pour l’émergence en Afrique (Obema), un think tank d’experts africains.

Madagascar, émergence, présidentielle 2018, Ravalomanana, Rajoelina, Dama Mahaleo, Rajaonarimampianina

Mais alors, combien d'années faudra-t-il pour sauver Madagascar ? L'International Country Risk Guide du PRS Group s'est penché sur la question. Et c'est plutôt compliqué.

          Trevor Noah explains how Trump's anti-immigration creep is like a communicable disease, 'Donaldrrhea'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

President Trump has always had it out for immigrants, "and who can blame him?" Trevor Noah joked on Wednesday's Daily Show. "They're responsible for two of his worst marriages." But he used to only target illegal immigrants. Not any more, thanks to a new proposal from White House senior policy adviser Stephen Miller. Miller "is an evil genius," Noah said. "Because you see what he's done, right? They're saying the U.S. won't allow legal immigrants to stay in the U.S. if they've ever used what they call 'public assistance.' And what's interesting is that that description ranges from food stamps all the way through to ObamaCare — which, by the way, you had to get by law. So thanks, Obama. Some of us don't want to go back to Kenya."

"Under this new policy, they can kick you out for breaking the law, or they could kick you out for following the law," Noah said, recapping how Trump has shifted his policy from going after "bad hombres" to good people who enter the U.S. illegally to, now, immigrants who are here legally. Trump also wants to scrap the 14th amendment, so people born in the U.S. don't automatically get citizenship, he noted. "I know a lot of people always think that Trump's immigration 'policy' won't affect them. But here's the way you've got to think of it: Trump's immigration policies are a lot like an STD. It can get to anybody, no matter who you are or where you come from. And the more people it spreads to, the more likely it is that you'll be the next one to get Donaldrrhea."

On Jimmy Kimmel Live, Kimmel pointed out that, if you believe his words, "Donald Trump loves every kind of people," and he had the clips to prove it. Watch below.

          Rare sight of elephants eating bird nests      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Wildlife videographer Matt Brierly captured two elephants eating bird nests containing live chicks and eggs. It is thought that elephants only eat vegetation. The clip, captured on February 28 in Kenya, shows two elephants catching weaver bird nests on the branches of a tree with their trunk and taking them to the mouth. The filmer writes: ''The jury is still out on how accidental the consumption was, but an elephant certainly needs lots of salts, and lots of calcium for their tusks and constantly eroding teeth. ''The weaver bird nests would contain both salts and calcium, all wrapped up in a tasty sun-dried hay bundle. ''The weaver bird chicks that leapt from nests plucked by the elephants quickly scrambled to higher ground and were found by their parents.''
          Kenya's former 400m hurdles champion dies after car crash      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Kenya's former 400-meter hurdles world champion, Nicholas Bett, has died after a car crash Wednesday.

Local police commander Patrick Wambani reported that Bett, aged 28, was killed after his car struck a bump and veered off the road near Nandi County in Kenya's high-altitude North Rift region.

Bett had only just returned home from the African Senior Championships in Nigeria on Monday.

Following reports of the accident, Kenya's Athletics governing body confirmed Bett's death on Twitter, sending condolences to his family and the entire athletics fellowship.

Kenya's deputy president, Williams Ruto also expressed his sympathy over Bett's death, calling it "a big loss to his family, friends, Kenya and the global athletics fraternity," on Twitter.

The International Athletics Foundation also said it was "deeply saddened and shocked to hear," of Bett's passing in a post on Twitter.

Bett made history at the World Championships in Beijing in 2015 after taking gold in the 400-meter hurdles, the first ever for a Kenyan.

He also won two bronze medals at the 2014 African championships in Marrakech, Morocco in the 400 hurdles and 4×400-meter relay.

Bett did not make the podium at the African Championships in Nigeria.

His twin, Aron Koech, also an international hurdler, took the honors as part of the Kenyan team that won gold in 4×400m event, adding to Kenya's final tally of 11 golds, two more than South Africa and hosts Nigeria.

          Anthropologie Got a Cult Fashion Brand for Its Latest Release — Shopping      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

We're still totally crushing on the Liberty for Anthropologie collaboration (between Liberty of London and Anthropologie, in case that wasn't clear) that came out around this time last year. And now there's SUNO for Anthropologie, which launches today on Anthro's website.

If you're unfamiliar, Suno was a beloved fashion label, launched in 2008. The bold designs were made from vintage African textiles collected by the founder, Max Osterweis, while visiting his mother in Kenya. The label sadly closed in 2016, but now it's back — with Anthropologie — featuring more than 40 styles and 20 prints for the kitchen, dining room table, bedroom, and more.

Whether or not you were a Suno fan before, we're guessing you'll be one now. Take a look at some of the items that caught our eye. Prices range from $10 (for a nut bowl) to $3,898 (for a sofa).

          Michael Moore, Errol Morris docs and new Halloween all coming to TIFF      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

New films from from famed documentarians Michael Moore, Errol Morris and Werner Herzog and — with the former two both turning their eyes on Donald Trump — along with new revamps of the Predator and Halloween franchises are all coming to this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, the fest revealed Thursday.

Moore’s Fahrenheit 11/9 — named both in homage to his earlier Fahrenheit 9/11 and in reference to Nov. 9, 2016, the morning after Trump’s election victory — is described by the fest as “a radical and humorous look at the United States” under Trump. Morris’ American Dharma looks at controversial Trump strategist Steve Bannon. The film from Moore makes its world premiere here in Toronto, while American Dharma’s screening will be a North American first.

Other docs coming include Herzog and André Singer’s Meeting Gorbachev, on the former Soviet leader; Rashida Jones and Alan Hicks’ Quincy, which profiles Jones’ endlessly quotable musical icon father, Quincy Jones; Victoria Stone and Mark Deeble’s The Elephant Queen, narrated by Chiwetel Ejiofor, tracing the epic journey of an elephant herd; Billy Corben’s Screwball, a true-crime comedy on doping in Major League Baseball; and Maxim Pozdorovkin’s The Truth About Killer Robots, investigating the lethal consequences of automation.

The Midnight Madness slate, meanwhile, has the world premieres of both Shane Black’s Predator, starring Keegan-Michael Key, Olivia Munn and Thomas Jane, and David Gordon Green’s Halloween, the 11th installment of the horror series that will once again star Jamie Lee Curtis but add Judy Greer and Will Patton. Midnight Madness programmer Peter Kuplowsky said both sequels “boldly and brilliantly builds upon its mythic iconography to thrilling and surprising effect.”

Additional world premieres at this year’s Midnight Madness will include Emma Tammi’s The Wind; The Standoff at Sparrow Creek, directed by Henry Dunham; and Vasan Bala’s The Man Who Feels No Pain, the first Indian film ever selected for the Midnight Madness program.

The fest runs Sept. 6-16. Films screening as part of the Midnight Madness program include:

          Meski Mugil, Interior Rumah Ini Bikin Melongo      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Dalam pandangan sebagian besar orang, rumah yang layak selalu dilihat dari ukurannya. Padahal jika kita mampu mengatur ukuran rumah secara efisien dan efektif, rumah sempit bisa terasa nyaman untuk ditinggali.

Seperti rumah mungil satu ini, yang sangat cocok untuk kamu yang ingin mandiri. Rumah kecil yang dimiliki Rowan Kunz mungkin bisa jadi salah satu inspirasi untukmu.

Memang dari luar, rumah kecil milik seniman pahat asal New York ini terlihat biasa dan tidak spesial. Jangan berpikir demikian, kalau kamu sudah lihat bagian dalamnya.

 

Bermimpi punya rumah besar

Selain terlihat hangat, desain interior rumah Kunz juga sangat nyaman dan layak untuk ditempati. Sebelum membuat rumah ini, Kunz sebelumnya bermimpi untuk punya rumah sendiri yang besar.

Sayang, karena masalah keuangan, ia kemudian menggunakan rencana lain, tapi tetap mewujudkan keinginannya memiliki rumah.

Saat rumah ini dibangun, Kenz justru terkejut karena hasilnya begitu memuaskan. Ia tidak percaya bahwa rumahnya akan menjadi seindah ini untuk ia huni sendiri.

"Meskipun seperti sebuah kotak, rumah ini memberikan ruang yang cukup untukku. Aku juga mendapatkan kenyamanan di sini lebih dari banyak oran di dunia," ujarnya kepada Hudson Valley Magazine.

Rumah ramah lingkungan

Walaupun memiliki ruangan yang kecil, Kunz mengaku bahwa ruangan ini sudah cukup ditempati untuk dirinya sendiri bersama kucingnya, Willow.

Rumah yang telah ia bangun juga dianggap ramah lingkungan dan praktis. Untuk mengisi daya listrik, Kunz menggunakan dua panel surya untuk menjalankan lampu kulkas, serta laptopnya.

Ia juga punya talang untuk mengumpulkan air saat hujan. untuk kemudian diolah dalam teknologi drainase sederhana yang bisa digunakan kembali. Serta banyak hal lainnya yang ramah lingkuhan serta menghemat pengeluaran sehari-hari.

Perempuan itu juga sudah berpergian ke Afrika untuk memberikan bantuan kepada masyarakat membangun rumah kecil di sana.

Employment Opportunity: Project Manager at Future First Global Tanzania
JOB DESCRIPTION – LEAP PROJECT MANAGER, TANZANIA
Future First Global is looking for an experienced Project Manager to lead our team in Dar es Salaam to deliver a portfolio of activities as part of the Lending for Education in Africa Partnership (LEAP) – an exciting initiative being piloted in Tanzania and Kenya for the first time.

This is a dynamic and varied role and will involve designing and delivering a comprehensive community building programme, to support academic success and create pathways to employment for the ‘LEAP Fellows’ – selected recipients of the LEAP Programme. The successful candidate will have sole responsibility for the design and delivery of LEAP programme activities in Tanzania.

• Initially a 12 month contract with potential for extension 
• Preferred start date Monday 15th October 2018, with some flexibility for the right candidate 
• Salary competitive – to be discussed at interviews 
• The Project Manager will be based in Dar es Salaam, with regular travel to partner universities in and around the city

About the LEAP (The Lending for Education in Africa Partnership) Pilot
The Lending for Education in Africa Partnership (LEAP) aims to pilot and scale a non-profit social lending fund dedicated to strengthening economic prosperity in Sub-Saharan Africa by providing affordable higher education loans to students, incentivising their academic success and creating pathways to gainful employment. LEAP’s lending will be directed towards youth from low and middle-income backgrounds who are currently unable to secure credit from conventional commercial banks and for whom bursaries and scholarships are not yet available - “the missing middle” of higher education finance.

Since January 2018 our team in Kenya have been working to establish the pilot programme with five universities in Nairobi. The team have developed a comprehensive programme of community building, academic coaching and careers support that will be delivered to LEAP Fellows alongside their studies to help them thrive in their academics and future jobs. The learnings have been significant and this role will work closely with the team in Kenya to develop these for the Tanzanian context.

Our HQ is based in London, but we have worked on projects in Rwanda, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Australia and the UK. You will be working directly with two members of staff, one based in the UK and the other in Singapore.

          Pedagang Cirebon Serbu Garut Jajakan Anggur Impor Cina      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Garut - Puluhan pedagang anggur impor Cina yang tersebar di beberapa tempat, membanjiri Garut, Jawa Barat saat ini. Buah merah ranum asal negeri Panda itu, dijual secara eceran di kota Intan melalui para pedagang musiman asal kota udang, Cirebon. 

"Saya baru sepekan jualan, awalnya dari Cilegon pindah ke sini (Garut)," ujar Yogi, 27 tahun, pedagang anggur impor musiman asal Kabupaten Cirebon, saat ditemui Liputan6.com beberapa waktu lalu.

Pedagang buah musiman asal Sindanglaut, Kabupaten Cirebon itu mengatakan, penjualan anggur merah asal Cina itu cukup menggiurkan, selain harganya yang terbilang murah, juga kualitas buah cukup enak dan kenyal. “Buahnya besar dan rasanya cukup manis," ujarnya.

Kondisi itu sedikit unggul jika dibanding dengan anggur lokal asal Bali yang selalu membanjiri produk anggur nasional, saat musim panen tiba.

"Paling beda tentu rasanya yang masam, buahnya (anggur Bali) juga tidak terlalu besar," kataya. 

Yogi mengaku tertarik menjajakan buah impor asal negeri Tirai Bambu itu karena barangnya mudah didapat. "Katanya lagi panen raya di sananya, jadi pasokan melimpah,"kata dia.

Sementara pasokan anggur lokal yang berasal dari Bali belum memasuki musim panen. "Mungkin beberapa bulan lagi (anggur Bali) banyak," ujar dia.

Barang itu sengaja diperoleh dari pasar Induk Caringin, Bandung atau langsung pasar induk Kramat Djati, Jakarta yang merupakan pasar induk terbesar di pulau Jawa itu. "Tinggal pesan barang langsung kita ambil ke sana," kata dia.

Yogi menambahkan, selain pasokan melimpah, minat masyarakat Garut yang cukup tinggi ikut memudahkan penjualan anggur, sehingga memberikan keuntungan cukup tinggi. Saya sehari bisa habis enam kerat (satu kerat 7 kilo gram)," kata dia.

Saat ini Yogi bersama Darman, rekannya yang juga menjajakan roda anggur impor itu, menjual Rp 35 ribu per kilo gram, atau sekitar Rp 18 ribu per 500 gram. "Kadang masih ada juga yang masih menawar, tapi rata-rata ramainya harga itu," kata dia.

 

 

Tradisi Nomaden Pedagang Musiman Asal Cerebon

Buah anggur asal Cina di Garut (Liputan6.com/Jayadi Supriadin)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Yogi mengatakan, tradisi jualan pedagang musiman asal Cirebon secara nomaden atau berpindah-pindah itu, sudah berlangsung lama. Mereka mendapatkan informasi dari rekannya yang sebelumnya telah melakukan survei tempat atau kabupaten yang akan dituju.

"Di Garut kita coba anggur dan ternyata bagus," ujar dia sambil tersenyum.

Kemudian mereka akan mendiami satu daerah hingga beberapa bulan menggunakan jasa kontrakan yang mereka sewa secara urungan. Sementara soal barang biasanya membeli dengan modal urungan pula atau dipasok satu satu pemilik modal.

"Jadi kita hanya jual saja," ujarnya.

Untuk memudahkan transaksi, biasanya para pedagang menjajakan barang dagangannya di pinggir jalan, merejka akan mencari rute perlintasan jalan nasional, jalan provinsi dan hingga jalur utama kabupaten/kota.

"Istilahnya sambil lintas, tanpa waktu (berhenti) lama, kita layani," ujarnya.

Dalam berjualan, ia bersama rekan-rekannya termasuk luwes. Ragam produk buah-buahan lokal dan impor, telah ia jajakan untuk memenuhi permintaan konsumen. "Sebelumnya kami jualan mangga, dukuh, apel, tapi saat ini memang sedang musim anggur," ungkap dia.

Rohmat, 43 tahun, salah seorang pedagang lokal asal Garut mengaku, tidak terusik dengan kedatangan migrasi pedagang musiman buah-buahan asal Cirebon itu. Menurutnya, menjadi penjual itu harus siap bersaing dengan yang lain.

"Kan pedagang Garut juga bisa berjualan di sana (Cirebon)," kata dia.

Ia menilai, kemampuan dan kekompakan para jualan musiman asal kota terasi itu cukup mumpuni. Selain harganya yang terbilang murah, juga pola persahabatan yang begitu kuat. "Tidak ada saling menjatuhkan, harganya bakal sama," ujarnya.

          PT Bestprofit | Bagaimana Donald Trump terus menang      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
PT Bestprofit (9/8) – Berikut statistik yang luar biasa: Dalam 14 pemilihan kandidat pertama Partai Republik di mana Presiden Donald Trump mendukung kandidat, pilihannya menang – atau memimpin – semuanya 14 kali.
Itu luar biasa. (Hat tip untuk WaPo’s James Hohmann untuk melakukan matematika!) Dan itu berbicara kepada fakta bahwa meskipun Trump memiliki angka yang lemah di antara masyarakat umum, ia tetap menjadi kekuatan besar dalam GOP – seseorang yang dapat membuat dan menghancurkan kandidat dengan satu cuitan.
Ambil Selasa malam. Trump mendukung John James di Senat utama Partai Republik, Bill Schuette dalam lomba gubernur Michigan dan Kris Kobach di gubernur Kansas.

James, yang dianggap sebagai underdog sebelum dukungan Trump, memenangkan hak untuk menghadapi Senator Demokrat Debbie Stabenow. Schuette, jaksa agung, menghancurkan gubernur letnan negara bagian dan beberapa penantang lainnya untuk hak mengambil alih Pemimpin Senat Mayoritas negara bagian Demokrat, Gretchen Whitmer, pada musim gugur.
Tetapi kudeta terbesar Trump tampaknya adalah dukungannya terhadap Kobach, menteri luar negeri yang kontroversial yang saat ini memegang pimpinan kurang dari 200 suara di atas Gubernur yang ditunjuk Jeff Colyer. (Perlombaan belum disebut oleh CNN.) Kobach, yang memimpin komisi jangka pendek Trump untuk menyelidiki kecurangan pemilu, adalah favorit konservatif Trump negara tetapi dilihat sangat, sangat curiga oleh pembentukan partai. Kemenangannya, jika bertahan, akan membuat perlombaan Gubernur Kansas menjadi kompetitif. pt bestprofit

Trump, tidak pernah seorang pun menghindari pemukulan tanduknya sendiri, men-tweetnya pada Rabu pagi ini: “5 untuk 5!” Agaknya, itu referensi ke catatan dukungan Trump pada hari Selasa – menghitung kemenangan jelas Troy Balderson dalam pemilihan khusus kongres Ohio dan kemenangan mudah Missouri Attorney General Josh Hawley dalam lomba utama Senat negara bagian bersama Kobach, Schuette dan James.
Dalam tweet berikutnya, Trump menawarkan kesimpulannya berdasarkan hasil hari Selasa:
“Selama saya berkampanye dan / atau mendukung kandidat Senat dan Rumah (dalam alasan), mereka akan menang! Saya suka orang-orang, & mereka pasti tampaknya menyukai pekerjaan yang saya lakukan. Jika saya menemukan waktu, di antara Cina , Iran, Ekonomi dan banyak lagi, yang saya harus, kami akan memiliki Gelombang Merah raksasa! ”

Itu bukan kesimpulan yang tepat, berdasarkan hasil Trump. Lebih tepatnya, baris pertama dari tweet itu akan berbunyi: “Selama saya berkampanye dan / atau mendukung kandidat Senat dan Rumah (dalam alasan), mereka akan memenangkan pemilihan pendahuluan.”

Apa yang dibuktikan oleh hari Selasa adalah bahwa Trump memiliki kekuatan yang luar biasa untuk memindahkan pemilih Partai Republik di belakang kandidat pilihannya. Tanpa dukungan Trump, tidak mungkin James adalah calon Senat di Michigan. Dan Kobach hampir pasti muncul tanpa Trump. pt bestprofit
Hal ini seharusnya tidak mengejutkan – karena jajak pendapat setelah polling menunjukkan bahwa Trump adalah salah satu presiden Republik paling populer di antara Partai Republik. Jajak pendapat pelacakan mingguan terbaru Gallup menunjukkan bahwa 89% dari Partai Republik menyetujui pekerjaan yang dia lakukan. Dan itu dalam jajak pendapat di mana persetujuan menyeluruh Trump di antara pemilih yang lebih luas hanya 41%!

Pengambilalihan Trump dari partai adalah total. Basis Republik hampir sepenuhnya sejajar dengannya; mereka yang menyeberang Trump – terutama orang-orang di GOP – dibuat untuk merasakan rasa sakit.
Masalah yang diambil alih oleh Partai Republik kurang tertarik pada kepatuhan terhadap Trump daripada membuat mayoritas Partai Republik sebesar mungkin adalah bahwa kandidat yang disukai Presiden tidak selalu kandidat yang diposisikan terbaik untuk menang di musim gugur. pt bestprofit

Ambil Kobach. Dia seorang tokoh yang sangat kontroversial di Kansas dan seseorang yang banyak dan banyak orang Republik Kansas yang dicelup-in-the-wool sekadar tidak percaya atau suka. Jika dia melepaskan Colyer untuk nominasi Partai Republik, ras Gubernur Negara Bagian Sunflower memiliki setidaknya potensi menjadi pikap Demokrat, karena kerusuhan dalam GOP yang diarahkan ke Kobach.

Ini adalah paradoks Trump untuk Partai Republik. Hancurkan dia dan beresiko berada di sisi yang salah dari kehilangan utama. Berpeganglah padanya dan jalankan risiko terseret oleh ketidakpopulerannya dengan semua orang di luar basis Partai Republik.

Selasa malam menegaskan kenyataan baru bagi Partai Republik, dan nyaris mustahil untuk berhasil menavigasi. pt bestprofit

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Dalam pandangan sebagian besar orang, rumah yang layak selalu dilihat dari ukurannya. Padahal jika kita mampu mengatur ukuran rumah secara efisien dan efektif, rumah sempit bisa terasa nyaman untuk ditinggali.

Seperti rumah mungil satu ini, yang sangat cocok untuk kamu yang ingin mandiri. Rumah kecil yang dimiliki Rowan Kunz mungkin bisa jadi salah satu inspirasi untukmu.

Memang dari luar, rumah kecil milik seniman pahat asal New York ini terlihat biasa dan tidak spesial. Jangan berpikir demikian, kalau kamu sudah lihat bagian dalamnya.

          MFUMUKO WA BEI WA TAIFA UMEPUNGUA KUFIKIA ASILIMIA 3.3      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Na: Lilian Lundo – MAELEZO, Dodoma.

Mfumuko wa Bei wa Taifa kwa mwezi Julai, 2018 umepungua hadi kufikia asilimia 3.3 ikilinganishwa na asilimia 3.4 mwezi Juni, 2018.

Hayo yameelezwa leo na Jijini Dodoma na Mkurugenzi wa sensa na Takwimu za Jamii, Ofisi ya Taifa ya Takwimu Ephraim Kwesigabo alipokuwa akitoa taarifa ya mfumuko wa bei kwa mwezi Julai mwaka huu.Kwesigabo amesema, kasi ya mabadiliko ya bei za bidhaa na huduma kwa mwaka ulioishia mwezi Julai, 2018 imepungua ikilinganishwa na kasi ilivyokuwa kwa mwaka ulioishia mwezi Juni, 2018.

“Kupungua kwa mfumuko wa bei kwa mwaka ulioishia mwezi Julai, 2018 kumechangiwa hasa na kupungua kwa mfumuko wa bei wa baadhi ya bidhaa za vyakula, ambapo bidhaa za vyakula zilizochangia kupungua kwa mfumuko wa bei kati ya Julai, 2017 na Julai 2018 ni pamoja na unga wa mahindi kwa asilimia 9.5, mtama kwa asilimia 17.8, unga wa mihogo kwa asilimia 14.1, matunda jamii ya machungwa kwa asilimia 22.2, maharagwe kwa asilimia 5.8 na mihogo mibichi kwa asilimia 12.5,” amefafanua Kwesigabo.

Ameendelea kusema kuwa ni zaidi ya miaka 15 tangu itokee tarakimu kama hiyo ya mfumuko wa bei ambayo iko vizuri kwa uchumi wa nchi.

Aidha ametaja hali ya mfumuko wa bei kwa baadhi ya nchi za Afrika Mashariki kama ifuatavyo; Uganda mfumuko wa bei kwa mwaka ulioishia mwezi Julai, 2018 umeongezeka hadi asilimia 3.1 kutoka asilimia 2.2 kwa mwaka ulioishia mwezi Julai, 2018. Kwa upande wa Kenya mfumuko wa bei kwa mwaka ulioishia mwezi Julai, 2018 umeongezeka hadi asilimia 4.35 kutoka asilimia kutoka asilimia 4.28 kwa mwaka ulioishia mwezi Juni, 2018.

Mfumuko wa bei wa Taifa unapima kiwango cha kasi ya mabadiliko ya bei za bidhaa na huduma zote zinazotumiwa na kaya binafsi nchini.

Mkurugenzi wa Sensa ya Watu na Jamii Bw. Ephraim Kwesigabo akitoa taarifa ya hali ya mfumuko wa bei kwa mwezi Julai 2018 leo Jijini Dodoma ambapo mfumuko huo umeshuka kwa asilimia 3.3 kwa mwezi Julai 2018 ikilinganishwa na asilimia 3.4 kwa mwezi June 2018.
Mkuu wa Kitengo cha Mawasiliano Serikalini wa Ofisi ya Taifa ya Takwimu (NBS) Bw. Said Ameir akisisitiza jambo wakati wa hafla ya kutoa taarifa ya hali ya mfumuko wa bei kwa mwezi Julai 2018 Jijini Dodoma.

Meneja wa Takwimu za mazingira na uchambuzi Bibi Ruth Minja akisisitiza kuhusu umuhimu wa takwimu katika kuchochea maendeleo .

          中小型银行开始积极进入数字银行服务      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
【本报雅加达讯】为了调整开始大规模的数字银行业发展,一些中小型银行开始积极地进入数字银行服务。 目前已有一些中型银行推出的数字银行产品,例如2016年退休国民储蓄银行(PT Bank Tabungan Pensiunan Nasional Tbk,股代号BTPN)的“Jenius”和2017年印尼DBS银行的Digibank。 有一些中型银行正在优化数字银行服务,包括美佳银行(PT Bank Mega Tbk.,股代号MEGA)、Ganesha银行(股代号BGTG)与Nobu银行。 Ganesha银行增长发展数字银行业务,以瞄准电子商务的交易市场。 周四(8/8),Ganesha银行企业秘书Febrina Kenya Savitri表示,2018年4月份该银行推出“BANGGA”手机银行。 “我们意识到数字银行的实施是向客户提供服务的必要条件。” BANGGA手机应用的发展是发展一些功能的手机银行产品的策略之一。该功能包括促销和捐赠的最新信息。 客户可在BANGGA应用中进行手机银行和电子货币的交易。该数字银行发展策略是Ganesha银行在2020年成为日常银行业务的策略。 Nobu国民银行董事总经理Suhaimin Djohan表示,该银行将逐步加强并发展数字银行。 “透过数字账户、数字支付和数字分支机构的概念。”该银行希望,未来能够整合数字服务。 金融服务管理局(OJK)策略和物流管理委员会助理Anto Prabowo表示,数字化是一项提高效率的银行努力。 “因此对民众的服务可更快和更容易。”这是为使所有银行都可走向速度和便利。

Cardi B and Offset aren't playing any games when it comes to making sure their daughter Kulture Kiari is straight when she gets older. Deets on the couple trademarking her name, plus pics from Todd Tucker's Jerseys & Jordans-themed bash for his 45th birthday inside....

 

With such a unique name, Cardi B and Offset want to be sure their baby girl Kulture Kiari Cephus will be able to use it to the fullest IF she decides to get into the entertainment business. They are trademarking everything!

On August 2nd (less than a month after Kulture was born), Offset filed to register the name "Kulture Kiari Cephus" for merchandising of shirts, sweaters, jackets, pants, skirts and footwear. Look out for some Kulture Kiari merch!

They also made sure she's straight when it comes to music as well. Her name was trademarked for all “musical recordings, motion pictures, entertainment marketing services” and promotion for recording and performing artists, according to The Blast.

There's more.

They also had her name trademarked in case she wants to use her name for online video games, dance events by a recording artist AND fan clubs. No games are being played here.

The request was filed under Offset's company, Sallie Smith LLC, but y'all know Bardi was included in the decisions being made.

 photo cardiboffsettrademark2.png

The new mom shared a picture of herself surrounded by pink flowers one week after giving birth to Baby Kulture.

The "Be Careful" rapper took a slight break from social media, but she's back. And she has been openly sharing some of her postpartum struggles. Prayers up!

Not long after Baby Kulture was born, Cardi announced she was backing out of Bruno Mars' tour. But, she's set to make her first post-pregnancy performance at the 2018 Mala Luna Festival in San Antonio, TX on October 27th & 28th.

"This party felt like a high school dance. @todd167 turned 45 this year," Kandi captioned on Instagram. "He calls it his “Jordan year” since Michael Jordans last jersey # was 45. That’s how I got the theme for his #JerseysAndJordans party. I had the party in a gym, we had a drum line & drill team perform when @todd167 walked in. This party was too much fun!"

We're still totally crushing on the Liberty for Anthropologie collaboration (between Liberty of London and Anthropologie, in case that wasn't clear) that came out around this time last year. And now there's SUNO for Anthropologie, which launches today on Anthro's website.

If you're unfamiliar, Suno was a beloved fashion label, launched in 2008. The bold designs were made from vintage African textiles collected by the founder, Max Osterweis, while visiting his mother in Kenya. The label sadly closed in 2016, but now it's back — with Anthropologie — featuring more than 40 styles and 20 prints for the kitchen, dining room table, bedroom, and more.

Whether or not you were a Suno fan before, we're guessing you'll be one now. Take a look at some of the items that caught our eye. Prices range from $10 (for a nut bowl) to $3,898 (for a sofa).

Video: Overview of the Swahili Language (Kiswahili)

Swahili language overview video

The lowdown on Swahili

In this video, Paul gives a great overview of Swahili including:

  • its history
  • where it is spoken (global distribution)
  • background on the writing system
  • what other languages have influenced it
  • what regional Swahili varieties exist
  • very much more

Paul includes example samples of the Swahili language to illustrate the main points of how the language works - super helpful for folks just getting started and interesting in general for language geeks like me.

Words from the videographer

[This] episode is all about the Swahili language.

Swahili speakers

Swahili is spoken by 16 million people in East Africa including Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya, where it has status as an official language.

Swahili is also spoken elsewhere.

About LangFocus

I've been a big fan of the LangFocus YouTube channel for quite some time now.

I visit it regularly to deepen my knowledge about languages in general - the videos are both academic and entertaining, a great combo.

The LangFocus creator, Paul, hails from Canada and is a language lover and polyglot who creates a wide variety of videos about languages and language learning. His work is supported by his listeners via Patreon.

Paul @langfocus you rock

Keep up the goods :) I want to interview you for an upcoming podcast.

          Shopping in Istanbul      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Sepertinya shopping adalah hal yang paling seru untuk dituliskan dan menghilangkan stres ketika dikerjakan😝😝😝. Mungkin karena saya suka banget belanja dan cuci mata di toko pernak pernik. Kayaknya kalau lagi belanja, waktu terasa berjalan sangat cepat, apalagi kalau bareng dengan orang yang suka belanja juga. Biasanya kalau udah nenteng banyak belanjaan, Willy pasti bilang, "Meutiay... belanja lagi?😨" dan saya menjawab, "Wilay, kita ke Istanbul nggak sering kan?" Dengan muka tanpa merasa bersalah😂.

Saya pergi shopping dengan menggunakan Tram dan MRT. Saya kira Istanbul hanya terkenal dengan Tram-nya saja, tapi ternyata kota ini memiliki MRT juga di bawah tanah. Kalau kalian ingin mengunjungi Spice Bazaar dan Grand Bazaar, saya menyarankan untuk naik Tram dan kalian bisa beli satu kartu Tram untuk multiple entry dan multiple travellers yang bisa digunakan untuk maksimal 5 orang. Agak bingung juga sewaktu adik saya tap kartu untuk kami sekeluarga (5 orang) tapi beberapa anak yang ikut mengantri dibelakang kami bisa masuk juga secara gratis. Pintu masuk Tram nggak tertutup padahal udah jelas yang lewat sudah pas 5 orang. Lho? Kok bisa ya?

Baiklah, nggak usah memperpanjang basa-basi lagi. Mari langsung disimak saja cerita saya belanja. Oh iya, mungkin saya akan banyak melampirkan foto dengan sedikit cerita karena kalian pasti lebih antusias melihat foto-foto barang-barang unik di pasar. Mari disimak:

1. Spice Bazaar
Pasar ini termasuk salah satu tempat belanja terbesar di Istanbul yang didirikan sejak tahun 1664.  Lokasinya berada di Eminonu Quarter dan di dekat Jembatan Galata dan Masjid Baru Yeni Cami. Saya mengunjungi tempat ini dalam rangkaian tur Selat Bosphorus ketika hujan mengguyur Istanbul. Saya kira 'Bazaar' di Turki sama dengan di Indonesia dimana para pedagang menjajakan barang disebuah lapak. Ternyata, Spice Bazaar merupakan tempat pertokoan mewah yang tertata rapi dengan bangunannya seperti Mall. Saya langsung takjub melihat langit-langit tinggi tempat ini yang berlukiskan gambar sangat cantik.
