New dig: Earliest modern human-like bone found in Tanzania

A new dig in Tanzania uncovers a finger bone which appears to belong to the earliest known example of a human-like animal in the history of the world. What we're looking at here is the base of a pinky finger, coming from a hand with modern human-like (MHL) anatomy, made to grip. This bone is known as OH 86, Olduvai Hominin 86, and it comes from an older-than 1.84-million-year-old dig site Philip Tobias Korongo (PTK) at Olduvai Gorge (Tanzania). This is now the earliest MHL hand bone in the fossil record.

Tanzania suspends 70 job agencies for trafficking girls, boys

THE government has suspended over 70 agents dealing with the recruitment of domestic workers following claims that they have been recruiting housemaids to Oman where they have been subjected to gross violation of human rights.

Addressing journalists in Dar es Salaam yesterday, the Secretary of the Anti-trafficking Secretariat, Mr Seperatus Fella, said that a lot of complaints have emerged on the exploitation of mostly young girls who have been sent to work in Oman.

"Most of these girls and boys are subjected to commercial sex or work as domestic servants and barmaids, with some sent on forced labour in factories, farms and mines under very poor conditions and fear of being physically harmed by their employers," said Mr Fella.

He pointed out that there was no proper systems to monitor the job seekers while they are already there, which makes it easier for employers to exploit them.

"Tanzania has been pointed as a source and destination country for men, women, and children between the age of 12 and 17 years being subjected to human trafficking and 97 per cent of the incidents are reported, according to the International Organisation for Migration (IOM)," he said.

A member of the Secretariat, Mr John Makuri, noted that the government will on August 21, this year, introduce regulations to combat the illegal trade.

"More awareness and trainings should be conducted in the enforcement of the Anti-Trafficking in Persons Act (2008) because the misconduct is also been practised in the country and majority of the people are not educated on the issue," he noted.

Mr Makuri called on the media and other stakeholders to put the issue on top of their agenda "because it is a very serious problem, which will eventually cause a lot of harm to the young people who are not aware of the impacts".

A Principal Investigation Officer at the Commission of Human Rights and Good Governance (CHRAGG), Mr Joshua Taramo, called on special training to the law enforcers in prosecuting trafficking offences so that they would see the importance of convicting the offenders.

"The law gives for anyone who will be caught trafficking human beings to be granted a sentence varying from 1 to 7 years or pay a fine amounting to 1m/- to 30m/- or both," he said.

Expert tip for traveling with a child: Don’t feel bad for everyone


Tip #8: Don’t Feel Bad for Everyone Else
Every parent has gotten that look in the airport: The other passenger who, upon seeing the baby in your arms, curses you. F... That. Guy.
In my travels, I’ve only gotten that look from disheveled single people who have no business judging anyone else’s life decisions. They fail to realize that, when a baby is crying, no one is more stressed than the parents. Families fly, babies cry. No one wants their kid to freak out on the red eye, but shit happens. You can’t exactly take the bus to India to meet the in-laws, so let’s all just deal with it.
Some parents buy drinks for the people around them. That’s a lovely gesture—I’ve done it—but it ultimately doesn’t matter. When your baby screams, your fellow flyers want to see you trying to fix the problem. They want to know you’re aware of the noise; even if you can’t fix it, they appreciate the effort.
And anyway, anyone who flies without noise-cancelling headphones is an idiot.

Best and Worst countries to seek medical care

A Traveler’s Guide To The Risks Of Seeking Medical Care

International SOS rates medical care around the world, looking at local standards, availability of prescription drugs, cultural barriers and the threat of serious infectious diseases. The overall level of risk cannot be assessed in large, developing countries (shaded dark gray) because quality of care can vary dramatically between urban and rural parts.

Commonwealth Professional Fellowships

Commonwealth Professional Fellowships support mid-career professionals from developing Commonwealth countries to spend a period of time with a UK host organisation working in their field for a programme of professional development. Fellowships are typically three months but can be between one and six months in length, and can include limited time for attendance at short courses or conferences, as well as visits to other organisations.
Programmes must have demonstrable development impact in the Fellow’s home country and the Fellow must be able to show how the knowledge and skills they will gain during the Fellowship will be disseminated after their return home.
Organisations in any sector in the UK can apply to host a Professional Fellowship. A broad selection have done so over the 13 years since the scheme was established.
Prospective host organisations might find it helpful to read about previously successful programmes:

Key features of Professional Fellowships

  • Applications must come from an organisation in the UK willing to set up a programme and host the Fellow(s), or have the agreement of a separate organisation in the UK to act as the host (if the latter is the case, a letter will need to be supplied at the time of application to confirm the agreement).
  • Organisations wishing to nominate a Fellow/Fellows will need to set up a suitable programme and identify the Fellow(s) themselves. A programme can include time spent within their own organisation, learning from colleagues in a structured manner and undertaking project work which meets their learning objectives, as well as time spent at other organisations within the UK and at conferences and a limited time on short courses.
  • Funding can be given for programmes of between one and six months (though typically for three months). Justification is required for awards of more than three months.
  • Applications are sought for programmes within the following broadly-defined areas:
    • Agriculture/fisheries/forestry
    • Economic growth
    • Education
    • Engineering/science/technology
    • Environment
    • Governance
    • Public health.
  • Organisations can apply to host up to ten Fellows in one year, with no more than six in any round.
  • Fellows must be Commonwealth citizens, refugees, or British protected persons and must be permanently resident in a developing Commonwealth country.
  • Fellows must normally have at least five years’ relevant work experience in the field within which they wish to undertake the Fellowship.
  • A Commonwealth Professional Fellowship covers the living expenses for the Fellow as well as a return airfare to the UK and the visa application fee. It also provides £800 funding support to the host organisation, with a budget of up to £3,000 available for attendance at conferences, on short courses, and other eligible costs.
  • Commonwealth Professional Fellowships are not for academic study or research of any sort. However, academics can be nominated for programmes of professional development in academic management.

DART yakanusha taarifa potofu kuhusu mabasi yaendayo haraka Dar


Kuna upotoshaji wa makusudi uliozagaa kwenye mitandao ya kijamii kuwa mabasi yaliyozinduliwa tarehe 17/08/2015 kuwa.

1. Ati ni ya Kichina

2. Milango ya kushukia na kupandia abiria iko kushoto hivyo hayaendani na miundombinu iliyojengwa.

HUO NI UZUSHI WENYE LENGO LA KUWAPOTOSHA WATANZANI WALIOCHOSHWA NA MSONGAMANO UNAOONGEZEKA SIKU HADI SIKU

TAARIFA SAHIHI KUTOKA KWENYE MAMLAKA HUSIKA HII HAPA:

1. Kiwanda kilicho assemble (Kuunganisha) mabasi haya kinaitwa Golden Dragon cha China.

2. Aina ya injini ni CUMMINS ya Marekani (USA)

3. Aina ya giaboksi ni VOITH ya Ujerumani.

4. Mfumo wa stelingi ni ZF ya Ujerumani.

5. Mgumo wa difu ni kutoka Marekani (USA).

6. Aina ya suspension (za upepo) Air Suspension kutoka Marekani (USA).

7. Mfumo wa breki ni WABCO

8. Aina za mabasi ziko mbili. Articulated mita kumi na nane almaarufu (Ikarusi) kutoka Hungary zitakazopita kwenye barabara Maalumu za zege zilizojengwa na Mabaai ya mita kumi na mbili yanayoitwa (Feeder) Mabasi Mlisho yatakayotumia vituo vilivyoko nje ya mfumo mfano kituo cha Shekilango, Morocco Hotel, Mwanamboka na Magomeni Mapipa kuwapeleka na kuwaleta kwenye mfumo.

9. Milango ya kupanda na kushukia abiria ipo kulia na kushoto ili kukidhi mahitaji ndani na nje ya mfumo ambayo idadi yake ni minne kila upande ila itatumika mitatu na mmoja niwa dharula kila upande.

10. Urefu kutoka ardhini kwa milango ya kushoto ya basi ni sentimita thelathini (30) ambayo hata mtoto anaweza kushuka bila msaada wa mtu mzima.

11. Urefu wa milango ya kulia ni sentimita tisini (90) sawa na urefu wa platform za kila kituo cha DART unaomuwezesha hata mtu mwenye mahitaji maalum Kuingia na kutoka ndani ya basi bila msaada wa mtu.

12. Ndani ya basi kuna eneo la kukaa watu wenye mahitaji maalum - walemavu, wazee na mama wajawazito.

13. Mfumo wa ulipaji nauli unafanyika vituoni kama ilivyo kwenye kivuko pale Kivukoni hivyo basi hili halina Kondokta. Makondakta wapo vituoni.

14. Muda wa safari kutoka Kivukoni hadi Kimara ni wastani wa dakika thelathini (30) ikihusisha muda wa kushusha na kupakia kwenye vituo vya DART.

15. Ni marufuku kwa chombo ama mwananchi kutumia barabara maalum za mabasi. Wananchi watumie maeneo yaliyotengwa maalum kulingana na mahitaji. Watumiaji wa bodaboda wanatakiwa kupita kwenye barabara zinazotumiwa na magari ya kawaida na siyo eneo lililotengwa kwa ajili ya watembea kwa miguu.

HIZI NDIZO TAARIFA MUBIMU NA RASMI KWA WATANZANIA
