Women from other parts of Africa are turning to local plastic surgeons for Kim Kardashian breasts, Jennifer Lopez derrières and Jessica Alba washboard tummies.

Plastic surgery safaris to South Africa are no longer the exclusive preserve of wealthy Americans and Europeans, and the beauty-conscious from elsewhere on the continent fork out up to R100,000 for their body contouring "holiday".

Agencies specialising in medical safaris have seen a surge in the number of visitors from countries such as Tanzania, Zambia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria and Angola seeking breast enhancement procedures, tummy tucks and liposuction.

They are also known to use their recuperation time to shop for clothing, shoes, handbags, furniture and diamonds.

Sandton plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr Chetan Patel said breast reductions, augmentations and

Mtuhumiwa mmoja wa wizi wa fedha za EPA alitenga bilioni 30/= apate ripoti ya CAG

Mdhibiti na Mkaguzi Mkuu wa Hesabu za Serikali (CAG) aliyestaafu Ijumaa iliyopita, Ludovick Utouh, amefichua kuwa mmoja wa watu waliohusika katika kashfa ya wizi wa fedha za Akaunti ya Malipo ya Madeni ya Nje (EPA) alitenga rushwa ya Sh. bilioni 30 kwa nia ya kuipata ripoti ya ofisi yake kwenda serikalini.

Akizungumza katika mahojiano maalum na NIPASHE yaliyofanyika kwenye ofisi yake jijini Dar es Salaam siku moja kabla ya kustaafu rasmi, Utouh alisema kuwa kwa bahati alipata taarifa za kuwapo kwa mpango wa kuwapo kwa kiasi hicho kikubwa cha fedha kilichotengwa kwa mtu yeyote atakayefanikisha jaribio la kuifikisha ripoti ya CAG kwa kigogo huyo wa EPA kabla ya kwenda serikalini na kumfikia Rais Kikwete, hivyo yeye akajikuta akiwa na hofu kubwa.

"Nilipata ripoti wakati wa EPA kwamba kuna mtu aliyekuwa ame-set aside (ametenga) bilioni 30 kwa

Mwanasiasa ajitangaza hadharani kuwa anatumia ARVs

Mwanasiasa nchini Marekani katika jiji la San Francisco jimboni Calirornia anajitangaza hadharani ya kuwa anatumia dawa za kupunguza makali ya HIV, lengo la kujitangaza huko likiwa ni kuchochea mijadala itakayopunguza kunyanyapaa watu wenye virusi vya UKIMWI (VVU) ili kuhamasisha ongezeko la watu wanaopima afya zao na kutumia dawa ili kupunguza kasi ya maambukizi ya VVU.


In an effort to combat stigma that has arisen around a treatment that prevents HIV, a San Francisco elected official announced publicly Wednesday that he is taking the medicine.

City Supervisor Scott Wiener said he is taking Truvada, a drug that dramatically reduces the risk of HIV infection. He appears to be the first public official to make such an announcement.

Wiener wrote about his experience for The Huffington Post:
Each morning, I take a pill called Truvada to protect me from becoming infected with HIV. This strategy, also known as pre-exposure prophylaxis, or PrEP, reduces the risk of HIV infection by up to 99 percent if the pill is taken once a day. This makes PrEP one of the most effective HIV-prevention measures in existence. ...
As an elected official, disclosing this personal health decision was a hard but necessary choice. After all these years, we still see enormous stigma, shame, and judgment around HIV, and around sexuality in general. That is precisely why I decided to be public about my choice: to contribute to a larger dialogue about our community's health.
In an interview at Wiener's office in San Francisco's City Hall, he said, "My hope is that by disclosing my PrEP use publicly that I can help move the conversation forward and get more people thinking about PrEP as a possibility, and encouraging people to consult with their medical provider."

5 signs that tells you have a favorite child

(image: bonbonbreak.com)

Few parents would ever admit (at least out loud) to having a favorite child—unless they were trying to cause conflict. But ask any group of siblings if there was a favorite child and many times they’ll agree that, yes, so-and-so was the Golden Child while so-and-so was the Family Goat (or black sheep, depending on the family).
If you’re a parent of more than one kid, what do you think your kids will say later on when they’re adults? Are you playing favorites without even knowing it, and if you are, how will it affect your kids?

So how do you know if you have a favorite kid, even if you can’t quite admit it to yourself? Here are five signs that you might be playing favorites:
  1. Your younger child “gets away” with a lot more than your older child, who can become resentful. This is common and often related to favoritism of younger children. 
  2. You find yourself more relaxed around a favored child. You smile more, laugh more, and are less stressed. 
  3. Your tone and choice of words changes when discussing your children with outsiders, including friends, teachers and others. 
  4. You have uneven expectations for your children. Paradoxically, lower expectations are often a sign of favoritism, while unfavored children are frequently held to a higher standard on chores, behavior, and even academic performance. 
  5. You get very defensive and uncomfortable when the topic of favoritism comes up, possibly as a way to hide guilt. 
According to Dr. Ellen Weber Libby, a psychotherapist, columnist for Psychology Today and author of The Favorite Child, it’s normal for most parents to have a favorite child, and that favoritism isn’t the same as withholding love. After all, Dr. Libby writes, “No children are identical, making it impossible for any two children to be treated the same.”

Moreover, favoritism can be fluid, depending on ages and stages—a favorite toddler may slip in parental estimation when he or she becomes as unruly teen, while their previously meek sibling emerges as a star student.

Yet favoritism predictably has a number of negative consequences, beyond the self-esteem issues it can cause in non-favored children. Children are highly sensitive to their parent’s emotional states, so they often instinctively know who the favorite child is (although a study that appeared in the journal The Gerontologist found that kids are only right half the time when they try to pick a favored child). When parents overcompensate or make up excuses about favoritism within the family, it can undermine your child’s confidence in his or her perception of reality. Favoritism can also undermine sibling relationships, as the balance of parental approval is uneven.

Childs' perception of parents' favoritism linked to risky behavior

We all know which kid Mom and Dad liked best, and odds are you're thinking it's not you.

But does that really make a difference? It can, researchers say, but not always the way you might think.

Less-favored children are more likely to be using drugs, alcohol and cigarettes as teenagers, according to researchers at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah.

But what matters is not how the parents actually treat the children, but how the kids perceive it.

"This this cultural perception that you need to treat your children the same, or at least fairly," says Alex Jensen, a professor of psychology who led the study, which was published in the August Journal of Family Psychology. "But if kids perceive that it's not fair, that's when issues start to arise."

Earlier studies have found that many if not most parents do have a favorite child. And though parents usually

Hali ni mbaya! Wanafunzi wanalawitiwa na kupewa sh 2,000/=

Vitendo vya ulawiti wa watoto wa kike vimeibuka katika Shule ya Msingi ya Ukombozi iliyopo Manzese jijini Dar es Salaam, huku watoto wanne wakiripotiwa kutendewa unyama huo.

Uchunguzi uliofanywa na gazeti hili shuleni hapo hivi karibuni umebaini kuwa, unyama huo umekuwa ukifanywa na vijana ambao huwarubuni watoto hao kwa kuwapatia fedha kidogo kati ya Sh. 2,000 hadi 7,000 kisha kuwaingilia kinyume cha maumbile.

NIPASHE Jumapili imebaini kuwa, vitendo hivyo vimekuwa vikifanywa na vijana hao ambapo mara baada ya kuwarubuni kwa zawadi ndogo, huwapeleka kwenye chumba kisha kuwalawiti na kuwatisha wasiseme kwa mtu yeyote.

NIPASHE ilifika shuleni hapo na kujionea mazingira hatarishi kwa wanafunzi wa shule hiyo na nyingine iliyopo jirani na Shule ya Msingi Manzese ambapo nje ya milango ya kutokea kumezungukwa na
