Mageuzi katika Sera ya Elimu 1995: Walimu wenye Shahada kufundisha Shule za Msingi

Rais Jakaya Kikwete amesisitiza nia ya Serikali kutumia wahitimu wake wa vyuo vikuu, kufundisha shule za msingi huku akiwaweka sawa kwa kuwaambia kufanya hivyo si kuwashushia hadhi. 

Hatua hiyo ya walimu wenye Shahada kuanza kufundisha shule za msingi tofauti na ilivyozoeleka, chini ya Sera ya Elimu na Mafunzo ya mwaka 1995, ni sehemu ya mageuzi makubwa, yanayotarajiwa kufanyika katika sekta ya elimu nchini. 

Rais Kikwete alishawahi kutamka mpango huo wa kutumia wasomi wa vyuo vikuu katika shule za

[updae 1] Maoni yangu binafsi yatokanayo na nilichokisikia

Baadhi ya watu walioona viungo hivi vya binadamu wanasema inaonekana vimekaushwa.

Kwa waliopita katika vyuo vya afya, katika somo la elimu ya mwili wa binadamu watafahamu fika kuwa huenda miili hii ni ile inayotumika kwa mafunzo hayo, hasa kutokana na mazingira miili hiyo ilimokutwa kama vile (1) kuwepo kwa wingi wa mipira ya mikononi (gloves), na kama ndivyo, nashawishika kuamini kuwa hizi gloves zilivaliwa na wanafunzi waliokuwa wanatumia ku-dissect cadaver, (2) eneo ni karibu na chuo kimoja cha mafunzo ya wataalamu wa afya na (3) huenda kukauka kulikoelezwa na walioona viungo hivyo ni kwa sababu ya matumizi ya dawa ya kuzuia miili isiharibike (formaldehyde kemikali nyinginezo wanazojua Wakemia) ili itumike kwa mafunzo.

Ikiwa haya ni ya kweli kama inavyoelezwa, basi kwa maana hiyo, ingekuwa vyema kwa Serikali kuhakikisha inalichimbua suala hili ili kufahamu pamoja na mengine:

  • Je, kutupwa kwa miili hii (disposal ya cadaver) kwa aina hii imefanywa katika maeneo gani na kwa muda gani? Hii ni muhimu ili kufuatilia na kuondoa miili na mabaki ya kemikali na madawa hayo kutoka ardhini ambako inaweza kutiririka na kuathiri afya za watu ikiwa dawa hizo zitaingia (penetrate) kwenye mimea hasa ya mbogamboga ambayo hutumika kwa chakula cha binadamu. Tunafahamu fika kuwa kina cha maji (water table) kwa jiji la Dar es Salama kipo juu, hasa nyakati za mvua hivyo ni rahisi sana kwa madawa hayo kutiririka kutoka eneo moja hadi jingine. Vile vile kuwakinga watoto dhidi ya magonjwa ya ngozi na mfumo wa chakula kutokana na wao kupenda kucheza kila mahala hata kwenye majalala au maji ya mvua yaliyotuama au yaliyoko kwenye mwendo.
Kwa vyovyote vile iwavyo (ndivyo ama sivyo ilivyoelezwa hapo juu) bado kuna uwajibikaji, ambapo pamoja na mengine:
  • Je, ni adhabu gani inayopaswa kutolewa kwa wahusika ili kuzuia jambo hili lisijirudie tena? Wataalamu wa mazingira, wataalamu wa afya na viongozi wa Serikali za mitaa na maeneo husika, hili nadhani ni jukumu linalowahusu moja kwa moja. Ikiwa tunajali afya zetu na uhai wa taifa hili, suala hili lisiingie kwenye mikono ya rushwa kwa maana madhara ya rushwa yatatuathiri sote, rushwa huliangamiza taifa, msituangamize zaidi.



Gari lililokamatwa na mifuko yenye viungo ya miili ya wanadamu
Taarifa kupitia blogu ya "Dar es Salaam Yetu" zinasema kuwa Jeshi la polisi Mkoa wa Kipolisi wa Kinondoni, limefanikiwa kukamata viungo vya binadamu vikiwa kwenye mifuko ya plastiki katika maeneo ya Bunju/Mbweni Mpiji, Magohe katika eneo ambalo ni marufu kwa uchimbaji wa kokoto nje kidogo ya jiji la Dar es Salaam.

Viungo vilivyotambulika ni pamoja na miguu na mafuvu ya vichwa vya binadamu.

Jeshi la polisi lipo eneo la tukio kwa ajili ya uchunguzi zaidi.

World's Longest Married Couple's secret to lasting love

(photo: mymodernmet.com)

Zelmyra and Herbert Fisher, The North Carolina (USA) couple, who wed on May 13, 1924, were recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest living couple in 2008 with 84 years of marriage.

In honor of Valentine's Day in 2010, the couple answered several questions on their Twitter account:
  • Remember marriage is not a contest, never keep a score. God has put the two of you together on the same team to win.
  • Agree that it's okay to disagree, and fight for what really matters. Learn to bend—not break!
  • We wouldn't change a thing.There’s no secret to our marriage, we just did what was needed for each other & our family.
  • Respect, support, and communicate with each other. Be faithful, honest, and true. Love each other with all of your heart.
  • We grew up together and were best friends before we married. A friend is for life; our marriage has lasted a lifetime.

On the road with heroin smugglers: Dar es Salaam to Cape Town

After meeting a Tanzanian stowaway, Sean Christie gets caught up in a hair-raising heroin run from Dar es Salaam to Cape Town.

I first met Adam three years ago, in a forlorn place under Nelson Mandela Boulevard, the freeway that snips the City of Cape Town from its port. There, with a view of the freezer terminal, he explained his career as a stowaway: how he had made it to the United Kingdom in 2003 in a bulk carrier called Global Victory, going on to live in Birmingham for eight years.

He said he had grown up in the port city of Dar es Salaam but preferred to try for ships 6 000km to the south, in Cape Town, on account of the number of Europe-bound vessels that dock there.

Between ships, he slept rough under the foreshore freeways, alongside dozens of other refugees from Dar es Salaam’s slums. He and his friends referred to
