Michezo 10 Inayosubiriwa kwa Hamu msimu Mpya wa NBA

Ligi ya mpira wa kikapu Marekani (NBA) ambayo inaongoza kwa kutazamwa zaidi duniani imetangaza ratiba ya msimu mpya utakaoanza mwezi Oktoba (unaweza kuisoma kwa kubofya hapa) Kama ilivyo ada kila msimu unakuwa na michezo inayosubiriwa kwa hamu ikitumiwa kama kipimo cha namna timu zitakavyofanya kwenye hatua ya mtoano, na hii ni 10 bora kati ya hiyo.

Oct 25: CAVS kwa KNICKS




Mabingwa wa msimu uliopita Cavs wanakutana na kigingi cha kwanza watakapoifuata Knicks ambayo imeongeza nguvu baada ya kumchukua MVP wa za zamani Derrick Rose na Joachim Noah toka Chicago Bulls.

Oct 25: SPURS kwa WARRIORS




Hiki kitakuwa kipimo kizuri kwa Golden State ambao msimu uliopita walikata pumzi mwishoni, tutajua kama Big 4 mpya ya Curry, Klay, Green na Durant itafika mbali watakapokutana na kati ya timu bora kabisa kwenye ligi San Antonio Spurs. Itakuwa pia kipimo kwa Spurs ambayo kuona wapoje baada ya Tim Duncan kustaafu.

Nov 3: OKC kwa WARRIORS




Kama kuna usajili uliogusa hisia za wengi offseason hii basi itakuwa ni wa Kevin Durant alieondoka OKC kwenda Warriors. Kuna waliomuona kama msaliti, wengine wakamchukulia kama askari anaeamua kuhamia kwa adui baada ya kuona silaha nzuri nk. Lakini mwisho wa yote kinachosakwa ni ubingwa hasa ukizingatia kwa miaka mitano mfululizo Thunder wamekuwa wakikata pumzi mwishoni. Novemba 3 ndio siku KD anakutana na marafiki zake wa zamani.

Nov 10: CHICAGO BULLS kwa MIAMI HEAT




Kivutio kwenye mchezo huu atakuwa Dwayne Wade ambaye aliichezea Heat kwa misimu 13 mfululizo kabla ya kuhamia Bulls na hii ikiwa mara ya kwanza anarejea American Airlines Arena ambako ana heshima kubwa . Kila mtu atataka kuona mashabiki wa Heat watampokea vipi Flash au Father Prime.

Nov 18: WARRIORS kwa CELTICS




Boston Celtics nusra iivunje rekodi ya Warriors kutopoteza mchezo hata mmoja msimu uliopita kabla ya kuwa timu ya kwanza kuichapa Golden State nyumbani kwake. Mechi nzuri kuipima Celtics imeimarika wapi zaidi.

Dec 25: WARRIORS kwa CAVALIERS




Tuseme ukweli tu, huu ndio mchezo utakaosubiriwa kwa hamu zaidi na pengine kwa kutambua hilo NBA wakaamua kuuweka siku ambayo watu wengi wanakuwa majumbani na familia zao, siku ya Krismasi. Inazikutanisha timu mbili zilioingia fainali msimu uliopita huku Golden State ambao walionekana kama wanabeba ubingwa baada ya kuongoza 3-1 wakikata ring na Cavs ikiongozwa na LeBron ikibeba ndoo kwa 4-3. Curry, Klay, Green na Durant vs LeBron, Kyrie, Love na JR.

Dec 25: CLIPPERS kwa LAKERS




Inaitwa The Battle of LA ikizikutanisha timu za jiji moja na zote zikiitumia Staples Centre kama uwanja wa nyumbani. Lakers ikiwa na kocha mpya Luke Walton na ikiwa imechukua wachezaji wazuri wakati wa NBA draft itakuwa na kazi ya kufuta uteja kwa Clippers ambayo ina wakongwe kama Chris Paul, Blake Griffin na DeAndre Jordan.

Jan 29: OKC kwa CAVALIERS




Russell Westbrook atakuwa na kazi ya kuwaongoza OKC watakapokutana na mabingwa watetezi Cavs kitu ambacho tulizoea kuona akikifanya akiwa na Kevin Durant.

Feb 3: LAKERS kwa CELTICS




Miaka kadhaa nyuma hili lilikuwa kama pambano la watani wa jadi ingawa kwa siku hizi imepoteza mvuto kutokana na timu zote mbili kutofanya vizuri hasa Lakers ambayo kwa misimu kadhaa imeshindwa hata kuingia Playoffs. Hata hivyo tutatataka kujua kama wana jipya hasa ukizingatia timu zote mbili zimeongeza nguvu offseason.

CAVS kwa SPURS



Timu mbili kwenye ligi zinapokutana inakuwa nafasi nzuri ya kuangalia na kuwapima wachezaji bora nap engine kutabiri mechi za mtoano zitakavyokuwa. Mechi hii inasubiriwa kwa hamu na wengi.

HIZO ndio game kali zaidi za kutegemea msimu ingawa hali inaweza kubadilika kutegemea na msimu unavyokwenda kama Toronto Raptors walivyofanya msimu uliopita. Kwa wale wanaofuatilia NBA wakiwa Afrika kama mimi anza kujiandaa kwa mkesha.

Why did the water turn green in Rio? Some aren't buying it...


"The reason for the unusual water color observed during the Rio 2016 diving competitions is that the water tanks ran out some of the chemicals used in the water treatment process," they said.

"As a result the pH level of the water was outside the usual range, causing the discoloration. The FINA Sport Medicine Committee conducted tests on the water quality and concluded that there was no risk to the health and safety of the athletes, and no reason for the competition to be affected."

The divers might disagree. In fact, a number of them were pretty disconcerted, if not distracted, by the color. “It (was) so green,” British diver Tonia Couch said. “As the sun went down it looked worse.”

An expert from the Pool Water Treatment Advisory Group (PWTAG), Ralph Riley, told USA Today that “if it has gone green and that is because there is not enough disinfectant there would be some kind of implied risk." Riley added PWTAG strongly advised against swimming in green water.

Ad blocker users figures out a way to get around Facebook's ban


BusinessInsider reports that tt took just two days for ad blocker users to figure out a workaround to Facebook's move to prevent ad blocking software from working on its desktop website.

Facebook announced Tuesday it had updated its tech to serve ads to all desktop users, even those that have ad blocking software switched on. Simultaneously, the company also updated its ad preferences tool to give users more control about the types of ads they see on the site.

But, for now at least, there's a way for ad blockers to continue to block ads on Facebook.

Popular ad blocker Adblock Plus noted on its blog on Thursday that a new filter has been added to the popular list most ad blocking extensions use, EasyList. The lists tell the ad blockers which types of ads they should and should not block.

The update includes a piece of code that will tell the ad blocker to continue blocking ads on Facebook.com.

The updated filter is in Adblock’s main filterlist, which was updated earlier today. Here’s how to force and update:

On Chrome:
  1. Click the menu button > Tools > Extensions
  2. Find Adblock and click “Options”
  3. Click “Update Now”
On Firefox
  1. Click Firefox > Add-ons (or Tools > Add-ons on Mac/Linux)
  2. Click Extensions and find Adblock
  3. Click Options and then “Filter Preferences”
  4. Click “Update Filters”
Or if you want to manually add the filter, just add this into Adblock:

Huu uharibifu wa vifaa vya taka katika vituo vya mabasi yaendayo haraka vipi?

Hapa upande wa kulia ukionekana kuwa kifaa cha kuhifadhia taka kilisha chomolewa na kubakiza mfuniko tuu na papo hivi kwa zaidi ya mwezi sasa.
Ikiwa ni miezi michache kupita tangu mabasi ya mwendo wa haraka yaanze kufanya kazi kwa ufanisi mzuri, kumekuwa na mambo kadha wa kadha yanayoendelea ikiwa ni pamoja na kuharibika kwa miundombinu ya vituo hivyo vya mabasi hayo.

Hili limeonekana Morogoro Road ambapo kipande cha kutokea Jangwani mpaka Manzese kikionesha wazi vifaa vya kuhifadhia taka vimeharibika, huku vingine vikionekana kuchomolewa, kupinda, na kulegea.

Swali la kujiuliza hapa ni kwamba kwa jinsi miundombinu hii ilivyo kaa ni ngumu sana hata mtu kugonga kwa mguu sasa inakuwaje inaharibika kiasi hiki?


Hapa Kifaa cha kuhifadhia taka taka kikiwa kimepinda haijulikani kiligongwa au kuna watu walikuwa wanataka chomoa.


Hiki kikiwa kimelegea kabisa amambapo muda wowote litachomoka


Hapa mfuniko ndio ulisha potea tena


Hili nalo tayari linaelekea kudondoshwa chini


Hii hapa ndio funga kazi kabisa yani wamesha chomoa muundo mbinu wote wa kushoto

Rais Magufuli aagiza dola ichunguze, irejeshe mali za chama cha ushirika Nyanza

Rais Magufuli akihutubia maelfu ya wananchi wa mkoa wa Mwanza na maeneo ya kanda ya ziwa katika mkutano wa hadhara katika uwanja wa Furahisha eneo la Kirumba jijini humo
Rais wa Jamhuri ya Muungano wa Tanzania Dkt. John Pombe Magufuli ameviagiza vyombo vya dola kuchunguza na kuchukua hatua za kurejesha mali za Chama Kikuu cha Ushirika cha Ushirika cha Nyanza ambazo zilinunuliwa na kutwaliwa na watu binafsi kwa njia za ujanja ujanja.

Rais Magufuli ametoa agizo hilo leo tarehe 11 Agosti, 2016 alipokuwa akiwahutubia wananchi wa Mwanza katika mkutano wa hadhara uliofanyika katika Uwanja wa Furahisha Jijini Mwanza.

Dkt. Magufuli amesema Serikali yake haipo tayari kuwafumbia macho watu wachache waliovifilisi vyama vya ushirika vya wakulima kwa kujimilikisha mali za ushirika yakiwemo majengo, viwanda na mashamba na ametaka mali hizo zirudishwe mikononi mwa wananchi.

"Hata kama walichukua miaka 20 iliyopita, vyombo vya dola vichukue hatua na mali hizo zirudishwe kwa umma" Amesema Rais Magufuli.

Katika Mkutano huo Rais Magufuli pia amesema Serikali itafanya oparesheni kubwa ya kuteketeza Makokoro katika ziwa Victoria ikiwa ni juhudi za kukabiliana na tatizo la uvuvi haramu uliosababisha kupungua kwa samaki na kuathiri shughuli za uvuvi na usindikaji wa minofu ya samaki katika viwanda.

Amebainisha kuwa lengo la kuchukua hatua hiyo ni kuwezesha samaki wengi kuzaliana ili lengo la Serikali la kujenga viwanda vya kusindika mazao ikiwemo viwanda vya kusindika minofu ya samaki lifanikiwe.

Kabla ya kuhutubia mkutano huo Rais Magufuli ameweka jiwe la msingi la ujenzi wa daraja la waenda kwa miguu la Furahisha linalokatiza barabara ya Uwanja wa Ndege kwenda katikati ya Jiji la Mwanza.

Daraja hilo litakuwa na urefu wa meta 46, upana wa meta 3.6 na kimo cha meta 5.5 na ujenzi wake unatarajiwa kukamilika Mwezi Desemba Mwaka huu kwa gharama ya Shilingi Bilioni 6.455

Akizungumzia ujenzi huo Rais Magufuli amemtaka Mkandalasi anayejenga Daraja la Furahisha kukamilisha kazi hiyo Mwezi Desemba Mwaka huu kwa mujibu wa mkataba, na pia ameagiza Mkandalasi aliyekuwa akifanya upanuzi wa Uwanja wa Ndege wa Mwanza kuendelea na kazi hiyo ndani ya wiki moja kwa kuwa Serikali imejipanga kumlipa fedha za kazi hiyo.

Pia Dkt. Magufuli ameahidi kuongeza fedha katika ujenzi wa barabara ya njia nne kutoka Katikati ya Jiji la Mwanza hadi Uwanja wa Ndege wa Mwanza ili barabara hiyo ifike hadi uwanjani badala ya kuishia eneo la Pasiansi.


Wananchi wa Mwanza wakimsikiliza Rais Magufuli.

[update] Uongozi wa shule za Feza wasema hazitafungwa

Kauli ya serikali ya Agosti 13, 2016 kuhusu shule za Feza na wafanyabiashara kutoka Ururuki



UONGOZI wa Shule za Feza nchini umeibuka na kukanusha taarifa zilizozagaa kwenye mitandao ya kijamii, kuwa wao hawana uhusiano na Fethullah Gulen wala serikali ya Uturuki kwa vile hawajawahi kupokea misaada toka pande hizo mbili za uendeshaji na kuwa shule hizo hazitafungwa.

Kauli hiyo imetolewa baada ya hivi karibuni kuenea kwa uvumi kuwa shule za Feza zipo hatarini kufungwa kwa madai kuwa mmiliki wake ni yule aliyejihusisha na jaribio la kuipindua serikani nchini Uturuki.

Mwenyekiti wa Bodi wa Shule hizo, Habibu Miradji aliyasema hayo alipokuwa akizungumza na wanahabari Kawe jijini Dar es Salaam leo asubuhi.

Alisema Watanzania wanapaswa kufahamu kuwa Shule za Feza ni kama asasi zingine zilizosajiliwa kishera na serikali, hivyo ni mali ya watanzania.

“Shule za Feza zitabaki kuwa kiwanda cha kuzalisha wazalendo wa kitanzania na raia bora wa duniani, hivyo wazazi wanapaswa kuondoa hofu,” alisema.

Alisema toka mwaka 1995 shule hiyo imepata mafanikio ya kujenga shule za awali tatu, shule za msingi mbili, sekondari tatu na shule ya kimataifa moja.

Aliongeza kuwa huo ni uwekezaji wenye mchango katika kukuza pato la taifa, kutoka awamu ya pili, tatu, nne hadi awamu ya tano chini ya Rais John Magufuli.

Alisema shule ya Feza ni hazina kwa Tanzania kwani shule zake zimekuwa zikishika nafasi ya 10 bora toka mwaka 2004 hadi leo.

Alisema wanatoa wito kwa wazazi kuwasiliana na uongozi wa shule hiyo kujua kinachoendelea kwenye shule husika kwa manufaa ya wanafunzi wetu na taifa bila kusikiliza uvumi huo unaoenezwa na watu wasiopenda maendeleo ya shule hizo. --- Taarifa ya Dotto Mwaibale.

Serikali za Tanzania na Uturuki zashirikiana kupata taarifa kuhusu shule za Feza


Serikali imesema kwamba inaendelea kushirikiana na Serikali ya Uturuki ili kupata taarifa zaidi kuhusu wamiliki wa shule za Feza kuhusishwa na jaribio la kuipindua serikali ya Uturuki kama ambavyo imeripotiwa na baadhi ya vyombo vya habari.

Akizungumza na waandishi wa habari leo jijini Dar es salaam Waziri wa Mambo ya nje na ushirikiano wa Afrika Mashariki, Balozi Augustine Mahiga alisema wanaendelea kuwasiliana na Serikali ya Uturuki kuhusu taarifa hizo ili kupata ukweli.

Balozi Mahiga alisema kuwa kumekuwepo na taarifa zinazohusisha wamiliki wa shule hizo na baadhi ya wafanyabiashara ambao walifadhili na kuongoza jaribio la mapinduzi lililoshindwa Julai 15, mwaka huu nchini humo.

“ Serikali inaendelea kufanya mawasiliano na Serikali ya Uturuki kupitia ubalozi wake hapa nchini ili tuweze kupata taarifa kuhusu kuhusishwa kwa wamiliki wa shule za Feza na baadhi ya wafanyabiashara katika jaribio la kuipindua serikali ya uturuki,” alisema Balozi Mahiga.

Aliongeza kuwa kwa sasa serikali ya Tanzania haiwezi kufanya uamuzi wowote kuhusu wamiliki wa shule ya Feza na wafanyabiashara wa uturuki waliopo hapa nchini.

Kuhusu wanafunzi wa kitanzania wanaosoma nchini humo, Balozi Mahiga alisema kuwa wamemuagiza afisa ubalozi wa Tanzania aliyepo Roma nchini Italia kufuatilia hatma ya wanafunzi katika vyuo vilivyopo kwenye miji ya Ankara na Instanbul baada ya kufungwa kwa shule na vyuo kufuatia jaribio hilo la mapinduzi.

Kwa upande wake, Balozi wa Uturuki nchini Bw. Yasemin Eralp, hivi karibuni alisema kuwa wanafunzi wa Tanzania wanaosoma nchini mwake katika vyuo na shule zilizofungwa watahamishiwa vyuo vingine kuendelea na masomo yao.

Balozi Eralp alisema kuwa hatua hiyo imefikiwa baada ya kufungwa kwa baadhi ya vyuo na taasisi za kielimu zilizobainika kuwa na uhusiano na kikundi cha kigaidi cha Fetullah Terrorist Organization(FTO) kinachotajwa kufadhili na kuongoza jaribio la mapinduzi lililoshindwa hivi karibuni nchini humo.

Hivi karibuni Serikali inatarajia kukutana na balozi wa Uturuki nchini ili kujua ni vyuo vingapi vilivyofungwa nchini humo ikiwa ni pamoja na idadi ya wanafunzi wa kitanzania wanaosoma katika vyuo hivyo ili kupatiwa msaada zaidi. ---Taarifa ya Abushehe Nondo na Immaculate Makilika.
