MINING COMPANIES ARE NOT TAX CHEATS

Recently, reports in the media covered stories from Global Finance Integrity (GFI) report implicating mining companies in financial malpractices.

We wish to communicate to the general public that the allegations directed at the mining industry have no iota of truth. Basically the GFI report, which was released in May 2014, explains illicit financials flows purportedly staged by corporate businesses in general, but the media chose to align it with the mining industry alone. The Citizen newspaper for instance reveals that the government misses out on about $248 million per year in tax revenue from mining companies, but the

Watanzania sasa 'ruksa' kununua hisa mafuta, gesi

Na RACHEL KYALA via Uhuru — SERIKALI kwa mara ya kwanza imetoa fursa kwa wananchi ya kuwekeza kwa kununua hisa katika sekta ya mafuta na gesi baada ya serikali kutoa kibali kwa Kampuni ya Mafuta na Gesi ya Swala, kuwa ya kwanza kuuza hisa Afrika Mashariki na kumilikiwa na wazawa.

Mkurugenzi Mtendaji wa Swala, David Ridge, akizungumza jijini Dar es Salaam juzi wakati wa uzinduzi wa uuzaji wa hisa, aliwataka Watanzania kuchangamkia fursa hiyo ili kuinua uchumi wao na wa taifa kwa jumla.
“Utafiti wa awali unaonyesha kuna dalili nzuri ya kuwepo kwa mafuta na gesi katika maeneo ya Kilosa, Kilombero na Pangani kwani yapo katika ukanda mmoja wa bonde la ufa na eneo la Lake Turkana nchini Uganda, ambako tulifanikiwa kupata mafuta kwa wingi,”
alisema.

Akizungumza katika uzinduzi huo, Mkurugenzi wa Swala Tanzania, Abdullah Mwinyi, alisema hisa zilianza kuuzwa rasmi juzi, ikiwa ni wiki moja tu baada ya kupata idhini kutoka Mamlaka ya Masoko na Mitaji Tanzania (CMSA) ambapo ni ofa ya kwanza katika sekta hiyo.

Tanzanian Scholars condemned over country's education crisis

The shortage of textbooks especially by Tanzanian writers is evidence of the lack of commitment of the country’s academicians particularly doctorate holders to address the nations education crisis, Dr Charles Kayoka a lecturer at the University of Dar es Salaam has said.

He went on to condemn what he described as sheer laziness of the country’s academicians whom he bid to step up to the challenge and bridge the education gap that the country is suffering instead of, according to him, staying silent while the nation is dying of ignorance.

He was speaking recently in Dar es Salaam at a public lecture on the Contribution of Youth Leadership to

Mentally strong people don't resent others' success

Mentally strong people can appreciate and celebrate other people’s success in life.  They don’t grow jealous or feel cheated when others surpass them.  Instead, they recognize that success comes with hard work, and they are willing to work hard for their own chance at success.

The Chemistry of love explained by Associate Professor of Psychology

"If you block oxytocin receptors, you can totally cut off that pair-bonding response,"
 explains Abigail Marsh, Ph.D., associate professor of psychology at Georgetown University.

"People who excite romantic feelings in us also probably trigger increases in oxytocin, which results in an increase in dopamine, and then we find that person someone we want to stick with."
In the video below by Sean Parsons (Reactions), Marsh also explains that addictive drugs affect the brain in ways similar to love — which helps explain the painful, withdrawal-like symptoms of heartbreak.

Ahukumiwa kwa kuongopa kuwa alibakwa na Makasisi

Waswahili husema, "kwenye msafara wa mamba, kenge na hawakosekani" na inabidi kuwa macho kuweza kuwang'amua.

Ndicho kinachoendelea pia katika visa vya kubakwa na kulawitiwa na Makasisi, ambapo baadhi ya watu wanavitumia kama mradi wa kujipatia faida.

Hapa Marekani, jamaa mmoja mmoja aliyekamatwa akiiba fedha kwa njia ya barua, amesundwa jela miaka takriban mitatu kwa makosa ya kusema uongo na kusingizia kuwa akiwa mtoto mdogo alibakwa na Makasisi katika
