"World Order" book by Henry Kissinger
Hardcover, 420 pages | purchase: Amazon, iBooks, Independent Booksellers
Politics & Public Affairs; Nonfiction; History & Society

Henry Kissinger was a Harvard scholar before he became a mover and shaker in the world of foreign policy. And in his new book, World Order, the former USA Secretary of State under Presidents Nixon and Ford gives a historian's perspective on the idea of order in world affairs.

Nations are always trying to establish systems to make the world a more orderly place, but they rarely last for long. His book stretches from China under the emperors, Rome surrounded by barbarians and Islam encircled by infidels, to the treaties of Europe and the pivotal positions of Russia and Iran.

On current affairs, Kissinger tells NPR's Scott Simon why a conflict with the Islamic State, also known as ISIS, is more manageable than a confrontation with Iran, what he would do about the Islamic State, and what he thinks the best solution is for the crisis in Ukraine.

Tarehe kamili ya mwisho wa BMK ni kizungumkuti!

Wakati tamko la Serikali linaonesha kuwa Bunge Maalumu la Katiba linatakiwa kumalizika Oktoba 4, 2014, kalenda ya Bunge hilo ambayo wamegawiwa wajumbe inaonesha kuwa Bunge hilo litamalizika mwishoni mwa mwezi Oktoba.

Kutokana na kutofautiana huko, Kamati ya Uongozi imelazimika kuiagiza Sekretarieti ya Bunge hilo kufuatilia serikalini kujua sababu ya kuwepo kwa tofauti hizo.

Eh! Tanzania ya nane Duniani kwa matukio ya kujiua - Ripoti ya WHO

Haya jamani, wale wenye kuamini katika Mungu muombe kwa namna mnavyojua ili kama ni pepo la kifo linaiandama nchi, basi liondoke.
Wale wa sekta ya Afya ambao wamefundishwa kuwa hisia za kujiua mara nyingi husababishwa na msongo wa mawazo unaotokana na sababu mbalimbali za kutokuridhika maishani, kazi bado ni pevu.
Mara kadhaa nimeshawahi kutoa maoni yangu kwenye blogu na makundi ya majadiliano kuwa mtu mwenye hisia za kutaka kujitoa uhai si wa kubeza wala kupuuzwa kwani mara nyingi huwa hana utimamu wa akili kwa wakati anapowaza kujidhuru, ijapokuwa anaonekana mzima hasa ikiwa ni msomi, mtu anayejiweza kimaisha au ambaye amewahi kutishia kufanya hivyo mara kwa mara bila kujaribu na kufanikiwa. Ukweli ni kuwa hisia za kujiua ni dhahiri na zenye nguvu kubwa ya kushawishi sana kuwa kifo ndiyo suluhisho la kukabiliana na kuondokana na matatizo.

Wakati imethibitishwa kwamba katika kila sekunde 40 mtu mmoja duniani huamua kukatisha maisha yake kwa sababu ambazo zinaweza kuzuilika, Tanzania imeelezwa kuwa ya nane katika orodha ya nchi zinazoongoza kwa watu wake kujiua.

Ingawa Jeshi la Polisi nchini lilipotakiwa kuzungumzia suala hilo lilionekana kuchukua mlolongo mrefu, utafiti uliofanywa na Shirika la Afya Duniani (WHO), umesema tabia ya watu kuficha takwimu na kufuatilia matukio ya vifo inachelewesha uchukuaji hatua wa kudhibiti tabia hiyo ya kujiua.

Msemaji wa Jeshi la Polisi, Advera Bukumbi juzi alipotakiwa kuthibitisha kwa takwimu kuhusiana na utafiti

Mbunge Selasini atoa fedha na vifaa kwa michezo Jimboni

Akikabidhi msaada huo Mbunge Selasini alisema mchezo wa soka katika wilaya yake umekuwa ukizorota na kuona kwamba vipaji vinapotea na kutengeneza taifa la vijana wasio na mwelekeo.

“Soka ni mchezo unaopendwa, lakini tusipotia juhudi za makusudi kuuendeleza tutabakia kuangalia ya wenzetu wanaofanya vizuri kitu ambacho ni kibaya wakati vipaji tunavyo,” alisema Selasini.



Selasini amesema itakuwa ni heshima kwake na kwa Watanzania kuona Rombo ikifanya vyema katika medani ya soka katika siku za usoni hali ambayo itaibua vipaji vya soka.

How did Ebola hop from a Diplomat in Lagos to a Doctor in Port Harcourt?

It all started at the beginning of August, when a diplomat in Lagos violated a quarantine order and fled to Port Harcourt. That man infected a doctor at the port city, who then had contact with more than 200 people, the World Health Organization said Wednesday. About 60 people had what WHO calls "high-risk exposure" — they were in direct contact with the doctor or his bodily fluids.

The doctor secretly treated the diplomat in a Port Harcourt hotel room. The diplomat reportedly has survived.

The doctor developed symptoms — and thus became contagious to others — on Aug. 11. But for the next two days, he continued to treat patients in his private clinic, performing surgery on two.

As his Ebola symptoms worsened, but before he went into the hospital, the doctor had

The latest from WHO on Ebola therapies

via The NPR One of the reasons Ebola is so terrifying is that there's no vaccine and no cure. But the World Health Organization hopes to change that, with plans to quickly test experimental products during this outbreak.

By November, two promising vaccines will have been tested on people to see if they're safe, says Marie-Paule Kieny, assistant director-general at WHO.

"After that, these vaccines will start to be rolled out in the affected countries starting with health care workers and other front-line staff," Kieny said at a press conference held after a two-day meeting in Geneva on how to speed up the development of experimental vaccines and therapeutics.

Around 200 experts came — including officials from the countries hit by Ebola, researchers from

Marekani yathibitisha kuwa imemuua kiongozi wa al-Shabab

Mashabulizi yaliyofanywa na majeshi ya Marekani wiki hii nchini Somalia, yamemwuua kiongozi wa kundi la al-Shabab, Ahmed Abdi Godane.

Msemaji wa Pentagon, Rear Admiral wa kikosi cha Maji, John Kirby alisema katika taarifa yake fupi kwa maandishi baada ya kuthibitisha kwa siku nne pasina shaka kuwa Godane ameaga dunia:
"We have confirmed that Ahmed Godane, the co-founder of al-Shabaab, has been killed. The U.S. military undertook operations against Godane on Sept. 1, which led to his death. Removing Godane from the battlefield is a major symbolic and operational loss to al-Shabaab. The United States works in coordination with its friends, allies and partners to counter the regional and global threats posed by violent extremist organizations."
Hata hivyo, kundi la al-Shabab halijatamka hadharani kuwa Godane amefariki.

Rais wa Somalia, Hassan Sheikh Mohamud amekaririwa akisema kuwa mashambulizi hayo yalifanyika akiwa na taarifa na kukubaliana na uamuzi huo na kuunga mkono jitihada za washirika wake wanaosaidia kupambana na al-Shaban.

Rais wa Marekani, Barack Obama akizungumza katika hitimisho la mkutano na NATO huko Newport, Wales aliwaambia wanahabari kuwa wanachofanya dhidi ya al-Shabab bila shaka yoyote inaonesha walivyodhamiria kupambana situ na kundi hilo, bali pia na lile la ISIS/ISIL.
