Bloomberg, who spoke to Bello, reports:
"Issuing a blanket ban on foreign applicants from countries with confirmed Ebola cases is akin to 'racism against Nigerians and discriminating against individuals based

TAARIFA KWA VYOMBO VYA HABARI


  • Ni kweli ngazi ya vyama tawala na mikutano ya upatanishi kufanyika Arusha.
Rais wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania, Mheshimiwa Jakaya Mrisho Kikwete ametangaza kuwa Tanzania imekubali kuwa msuluhishi wa mgogoro wa kisiasa ndani ya chama tawala cha Sudan Kusini cha Sudanese People’s Liberation  Movement (SPLM), mgogoro ambao umesababisha kuzuka kwa vita ya wenyewe kwa wenyewe nchini humo.

Hata hivyo, Rais Kikwete amesema kuwa usuluhishi huo utakuwa wa kichama na Chama cha Mapinduzi (CCM) ndicho kitaongoza usuluhishi huo katika mazungumzo yatakayofanyika Arusha na kuwa jitihada hizo za Tanzania hazitaingilia mazungumzo ya kujaribu kusimamisha mapigano nchini humo yanayoendelea huko Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

10 points on How to write a passing paper

(image: yourenglishlessons.wordpress.com - How to Write a Discursive Essay)

  1. Do what the professor wants. Is there leeway when it's a question/answer type thing? Probably. Is there leeway when the professor says that you have to go somewhere or use a specific source? Not really. 
  2. A thesis/central idea is not optional. Your essay has to be about something. 
  3. Some of the ideas in the essay have to be your own. It can't all be summation.
  4. Organization is very important. Your paper has to explore/prove your central idea, and to do that, it can't be all over the place. Think of a debate if you must, just keep things tight.
  5. Sentence structure is another big one, run ons are evil because you're trying to cram so many things into one sentence that you lose track of what the sentence is really about, see not a very nice sentence to read. Keep things short and clean. 
  6. Intros have to be in proportion to the rest of the essay. You can't have a three page intro for a five page essay. Same with conclusions, this just tends to be more of an issue with intros.
  7. Only put in info that's relevant. If Newton's not important, don't throw in a life history of Newton. Only sum up what's relevant. If chapter 6 isn't important to your main point, don't sum it up.
  8. Know the text/info. Do not use the wrong theory, date, event, etc. It looks sloppy. 
  9. Tell the reader where you're getting things from. This means cite, explain, develop. It's an academic essay, so I need to know where you're pulling things from.
  10. To get above a C, pay attention to the rest. Diction and SPaG start becoming important, as does the quality of your ideas, the level at which you support it at, etc.

Hatimaye Kiongozi kijana wa Korea Kaskazini aonekana na mkongojo

Picha iliyowekwa hadharani juzi Jumatatu na gazeti la Rodong Sinmun, linalomilikiwa na gazeti la chama tawala cha Korea Kaskazini kinamwonesha kiongozi wa nchi hyo, Kim Jong-un akitembea kwa msaada wa mkongojo, alipozuru maeneo ya makazi ya watu katika mji wa Pyongyang.

Kwa siku za hivi karibuni, vyombo vya habari vya Kimataifa vimekuwa vikidodosa kuhusu hali ya afya ya kiongozi huyo kijana baada ya kutokuonekana hadharani kwa takribani mwezi mmoja.

Hivi karibuni, kiongozi mmoja wa nchi hiyo anaripotiwa kuadhibiwa baada ya kutamka kuwa 'afya ya Kim si ya kutilia shaka.' (picha: Rodong Sinmun/EPA /LANDOV)

The difference between direct & nonstop and connecting flights


Think that “direct” and “nonstop” are interchangeable terms? Nope. They are not.

If you are wondering which type of flight is best for you, consider these definitions:

Nonstop:

A nonstop flight is just what is says: a single flight between two airports with no stops. Business travelers prefer nonstop flights because they are the fastest. Unfortunately they are usually the most expensive.

Direct:

While a direct flight might sound like a nonstop flight, it’s not. A direct flight makes at least one intermediate stop along the way to its final destination, but has only one flight number.

Connecting:
A connecting flight will take at least two different planes with two different flight numbers to reach your final destination.
