Ninyi waandishi wa habari wazembe hivi, mna matatizo gani?

Kichwa cha habari kinasomeka: Dereva afa akigongana na basi

Hivi kweli ninyi waandishi (baadhi) wa habari ambao kila leo mnalalamika kuwa jamii haiwaheshimu, mnatarajia heshima itoke wapi il hali wenyewe mnaandika 'hovyo hovyo'? utumbo mtupu.
Uandishi gani huu wa kukurupuka kubandika habari bila marejeo? Yaani 'bora liende' kwa kuwa unataka kuwa wa kwanza kuripoti au jina lako litokeze hewani upatiwe ndururu zako ukanywee ulabu.
Mhariri wa gazeti anakuwa wapi wakati habari inaandaliwa namna hii hadi kuchapishwa?
Mna nini ninyi lakini?
Huu si ugonjwa bali uzembe na kutokujali.
Huwezi ukawa umesoma na unaiheshimu taaluma yako kisha ukaandikie watu ati dereva afa akigongana na basi; Tangu lini binadamu alianza kufanya migongano na mabasi? Dereva alikuwa akigongana vipi na basi? - walao uelezee kwenye habari tujue, aaa wapi, huelezei. Mnakera ninyi kwa uandishi wenu huu wa 'hovyo hovyo', basi tu.

CAUTION from the US Embassy (Tanzania) re: ATM Fraud

Warden Message - ATM Fraud
June 24, 2009

Several American citizens have reported to the U.S. Embassy in Dar es Salaam that money has been taken from their bank accounts by an unidentified person in Nairobi, Kenya. All of the complainants stated they used ATMs in Dar es Salaam. The Embassy is unsure of the method the perpetrators are using and must assume that all ATMs in Tanzania are potentially compromised.

The Embassy strongly recommends that American citizens check their accounts and determine if any unusual withdrawals have occurred. If so, the Embassy suggests American citizens contact their bank immediately.
The bank is in the best position to take measures to prevent further losses. The Embassy is working closely with the Tanzanian police on this matter.

Text & Video: RIP pop megastar Michael Jackson


Part of news information was obtained from washingtonpost.com, follow the link to read the full length of it.
These two are some of his many songs I love to listen to. RIP Michael.

Singer Michael Jackson, a child Motown sensation who grew into a moonwalking megastar, died in Los Angeles today, a county coroner said.

Jackson, 50, suffered an apparent heart attack at his Bel-Air home and was rushed to UCLA Medical Center around 3:30 p.m. Eastern time. His death was confirmed by Assistant Chief Ed Winter of the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office. Hospital officials were expected to make an announcement shortly.

"I've lost my little brother today, and part of my soul has gone with him," said devastated Quincy Jones.

As news spread, a large crowd gathered outside the hospital awaiting word on the performer who had sold 750 million albums, was twice inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and received 14 Grammy Awards, including one for lifetime achievement. People snapped photos and called friends.

Jackson was planning to appear in a sold-out series of concerts in London next month that would have run until March. Promoters of the concerts had recently said that the singer had passed a physical examination to assauge any doubts he was ready for a comeback.

"Everybody had the sense that there was not going to be a happy ending to this story," Light said.

Michael Joseph Jackson was born Aug. 29, 1958, in Gary, Ind., a steel-manufacturing center near Chicago. He was the fifth of nine children born to Joe Jackson, a crane operator in a steel plant, and Katherine Jackson, a Sears employee. His sister Janet also became a major pop star.

Jackson's father, the dominant figure in the household, had been a guitarist in the 1950s with a short-lived Chicago rhythm-and-blues group called the Falcons, and his mother nurtured a love of singing in her children.

From an early age, Michael and his four older brothers -- Jermaine as bassist and lead singer, Jackie as choreographer, Tito and Marlon -- were molded by their demanding father into a singing group. Michael, originally on bongos, proved the charismatic dynamo and replaced Jermaine as lead singer. He was said to have a prodigy's knack for imitating the dance moves of James Brown and other leading R&B performers of the day. In short, he was hypertalented and angelically cute.

As the Jackson 5, the group moved in comparably short time from local talent contests to a professional date at a Gary nightclub and then to national stardom, with the encouragement of established artists including Glays Knight. Driven by their father in a borrowed Volkswagen van, the Jackson 5 appeared in Chicago, at New York's Apollo Theatre and as the opening act for such top Motown stars as Temptations and Smokey Robinson and the Miracles. At Knight's urging, Motown owner Berry Gordy signed the group to a contract in 1968.

Two years later, when Michael was 12, the Jackson 5 had four No. 1 hits, "ABC" (which won a Grammy Award as best pop song), "I Want You Back," "The Love You Save" and "I'll Be There." Under Gordy's intensive grooming, the Jackson 5 achieved an astounding degree of mass popularity among black and white audiences. Their concerts caused near-riots, with young Michael, singing songs like "Shake it Baby," becoming an unlikely prepubescent sex symbol.

Around this time, the Jackson 5 became the subject of an animated Saturday morning television series on ABC, which featured their singing voices. Michael Jackson, meanwhile, began to emerge as a solo artist with the album "Got to Be There" (1971), which inclued the hit song "Rockin' Robin." When he turned 15, his voice broke, giving the boy soprano a mature tenor voice. At the same time, the Jacksons began to chafe under the strict artistic control Gordy and demanded greater artistic freedom.

According to Michael Jackson's autobiography, he confronted Gordy with a family ultimatum: "Let us have creative control or we're gone." In 1975, the Jacksons left Motown for CBS's Epic label, but Gordy managed to keep the rights to the Jackson 5 name. Brother Jermaine also stayed with Gordy, having married his daughter Hazel.

The University celebrates the scholarship success of two MSc Computer Science students at the annual Reception for University Scholars

On Monday 8th June, Tanzanian student Andrew Charles Kajeguka and Iranian student Mahbood Goharian, were invited to celebrate their achievement in securing two prestigious academic scholarships at the annual Reception for University Scholars.

Held in the impressive grounds of the historic Barber Institute, their achievements were celebrated by a host of esteemed university colleagues, with personal congratulations given by the University’s Vice-Principal, Professor Michael Sheppard.

Given the rarity of such prestigious awards, the School of Computer Science were extremely privileged to have two of their international masters students celebrated at this year’s event.

Commenting on this achievement, the School’s International Recruitment and Marketing Officer, Sally Ingram, said “This is an amazing achievement for Andrew and Mahbood, and it is fantastic that the University is celebrating their success in this way. Andrew has been awarded a full scholarship from the Ford Foundation’s International Fellowships Programme and Mahbood has been awarded a University of Birmingham International Masters Student Scholarship. Given the selection criteria for these awards, both students should be extremely proud. In Andrew’s case, he has been identified as an ‘exceptional individual’ who will use his education to become a leader in his respective field, and similarly, Mahbood has been selected from hundreds of applicants to receive one of only twenty international masters scholarships available annually. This is a true testament to the level of their academic ability and goes to show the quality of students choosing to study with us. They wholly deserve our congratulations.”
