How to make your own toilet cleaning pods using 3 simple ingredients


Instructions:

Mix together baking soda and citric acid then slowly add in dish soap until you get a consistency similar to dough. Fill an ice cube tray (silicone works best) with the mixture and let it dry for a couple hours. Pop the “pods” out and put them in a jar in your bathroom.

Then your guests, or you, can just drop one in after they’re done and the pod takes care of cleaning the bowl. These dissolve pretty quickly so you can drop one in after you’re done but before you flush, wait a couple seconds and then flush. Or you can drop one in after you flush, leaving the toilet ready for the next person. While these pods will keep your bowl looking good, you’ll still need to do a deep clean every once in awhile to clean under the the rim and the outside of the toilet. 

Toddler struck in the eye with a bullet she put in a car's charging port

An Illinois girl was struck in the eye with a bullet after she put it inside her dad’s car charger port.

The Winnebago County Sheriff's Office said Jimmy Hurn was with his two-year-old daughter Thursday when she found the bullet in his car.

Hurn told authorities his daughter then lodged the bullet in the charger port, causing it to discharge.

The bullet struck the toddler in the eye, WIFR reports.

The girl was rushed to an area hospital before being transferred to another, where she reportedly underwent surgery Thursday night.

A message left with UW-Madison Hospital regarding the girl's condition was not immediately returned Saturday.

Police said Friday the incident remains under investigation.

5 tips on how to pick the Best and Ripe watermelons

Here are some things to look for to make sure you're getting high quality fruit.

1. Field Spot
David Wolfe
Have you ever noticed those whitish, yellow spots on watermelons? This is the area that the watermelon rested on the ground in the field. For the best watermelons, look for orangish yellow field spots.

2. Webbing
Bright Side
Webbing is the brown striation across the watermelon. Often, people think this is a sign the melon is bad, but actually this indicated that bees frequented the watermelon's flower often. The more frequently bees pollinated the flower, the sweeter the watermelon!

3. What the gender?
Shareably
There are actually "boy" and "girl" watermelons. The "boys" are taller and shaped more like an egg. "Girl" melons are more spherical and tend to be sweeter!

4. Size

Bigger isn't always better! The best watermelons are usually average-sized. Avoid the massive and small melons and choose something in the middle

5. Tail
Bright Side
You can use a watermelon's tail to gauge its general ripeness. Look for tails that look dried. Green tails mean the watermelon was picked before it was ripe.

TRA kuhakiki nyumba za kupangisha, TIN kuanzia mwezi ujao


MAMLAKA ya Mapato Tanzania (TRA), imesema kuwa itaanza msako wa nyumba kwa nyumba kuhakiki gharama za upangishaji ili kutoza kodi ifikapo Septemba mwaka huu.

Mkurugenzi wa Huduma na Elimu kwa Mlipakodi TRA, Richard Kayombo, aliiambia Nipashe wiki hii iliyotaka kufahamu utekelezaji wa suala hilo.

Alisema huo ni utekelezaji na mikakati ya TRA katika kuongeza makusanyo ya serikali kwa mwaka wa fedha wa 2016/2017 na kwamba, yeyote atakayejaribu kukwamisha ikiwa ni pamoja na wapangaji kutoa taarifa potofu, watachukuliwa hatua kali za kisheria.

Wiki iliyopita TRA, ilisema mkakati mwingine ni kusajili walipakodi wapya na kuhuisha taarifa zao katika namba ya utambulisho wa mlipa kodi (TIN).

"TRA imepanga kufikia lengo lililopo na kulivuka, aidha TIN ambazo hazitumiki zitafutwa na tutapita nyumba kwa nyumba kuhakiki gharama za upangishaji ili kukokotoa kodi sahihi ambayo ilikuwa hailipwi serikalini," alisema Kayombo.

Aidha, taarifa ya makusanyo ya kodi ya Julai mwaka huu, ambayo ni Sh. trilioni 1.055, sawa na asilimia 95.6 mapato hayo ni ya kwanza kwa mwaka mpya wa fedha wa 2016/2017.

Makusanyo hayo yanatajwa kupanda ikilinganishwa na kipindi kama hicho mwaka jana, wakati mapato yalipokuwa Sh. bilioni 914, hivyo ongezeko hilo kuwa asilimia 15.43.

TRA, mwaka huu wa fedha, imepanga kukusanya Sh. trilioni 15.1 ikilinganishwa na lengo la Sh. trilioni 13.32 la mwaka wa fedha 2015/16.

Aidha, mamlaka hiyo ilisisitiza wateja wanaonunua bidhaa kuhakikisha wanachukua risiti na kwamba ambao watakamatwa na wakaguzi wakiwa hawana risiti, watapewa adhabu ya kutodai risiti ambayo ni faini ya kati ya Sh. 30,000 hadi Sh. 1,500,000, kwa mujibu wa Sheria ya Usimamizi wa Kodi ya mwaka 2015.

Kayombo alisema mamlaka inaendelea kuhuisha taarifa za walipakodi ikiwamo kupiga picha, kuchukua alama za vidole na vielelezo muhimu vya mlipakodi ili kuhakikisha kila mfanyabiashara na biashara inakuwa na TIN moja.

Hadi kufikia sasa ni majina 16,127 yamendolewa kwenye mfumo wa utumishi

Waziri  Angellah J. Kairuki (Mb) akifafanua jambo kwa waandishi wa habari (hawako pichani) kuhusu utekelezaji wa agizo la kuondoa watumishi hewa katika orodha ya malipo ya mishahara Serikalini ofisini kwake (picha: blogu ya Utumishi)
  • Rais kupewa ripoti ya watumishi hewa Ijumaa
TAARIFA rasmi ya mwisho ya utekelezaji wa kuwaondoa watumishi hewa serikalini na taasisi zake zote, itawasilishwa kwa Rais John Magufuli Ijumaa wiki ijayo na kwamba hadi sasa wameshabainika watumishi hewa 16,127 na wameondolewa kwenye mfumo wa utumishi -- limechapisha gazeti la HabariLeo la Jumapili hii.

Aidha, mbali ya serikali kuokoa Sh bilioni 16.15 kwa mwezi huu wa Agosti baada ya watumishi hewa hao kuondolewa kwenye mfumo wa utumishi, ambao kama wasingeondolewa fedha hizo zilikuwa ziwalipe mshahara, posho na malipo mengine, waajiri 145 hawajawasilisha taarifa kuhusu uhakiki wao.

Hayo yamebainishwa na Waziri wa Nchi, Ofisi ya Rais, Menejimenti ya Utumishi wa Umma na Utawala Bora, Angellah Kairuki alipozungumza na waandishi wa habari jijini Dar es Salaam jana kuhusu utekelezaji wa agizo la Rais Magufuli la kuwataka waajiri wote wa umma na serikali, kuwaondoa watumishi hewa.

Akifafanua taarifa hiyo, Kairuki alisema Agosti 26, mwaka huu watamkabidhi rais taarifa rasmi ya utekelezaji wa agizo hilo huku akiwataka waajiri 145 ambao hawajawasilisha taarifa za ama uwepo wa watumishi hewa au la, kuhakikisha wanaziwasilisha taarifa hizo kabla ya Ijumaa wiki ijayo.

“Tunawapa muda hadi Ijumaa wiki ijayo wawe wamewasilisha taarifa za kama wana watumishi hewa au la na sisi Agosti 26, mwaka huu ndio tunamkabidhi rais taarifa rasmi ya mwisho ya utekelezaji wa agizo alilotoa,” alisema Kairuki akizungumzia hatua ya Rais Magufuli kuagiza uhakiki huo Machi mwaka huu.

Akielezea hatua zilizochukuliwa hadi sasa na waajiri hao, Kairuki alisema nchi ina jumla ya waajiri 409 wa serikali na taasisi mbalimbali za umma, na kati ya waajiri hao, hadi sasa waajiri 264 ndio waliowasilisha taarifa za utekelezaji wa agizo hilo.

Alisema kati ya waajiri hao 264 waliowasilisha, waajiri 63 wamethibitisha hawana watumishi hewa, huku waajiri 201 wakibaini uwepo wa watumishi hewa kuanzia mmoja na kuendelea.

“Tumepokea taarifa za utekelezaji wa agizo la rais alilitoa Machi 15, mwaka huu na hadi sasa waajiri 264 kati waliotekeleza agizo hilo, 201 wamebaini wana watumishi hewa,” alisema Kairuki.

Akizungumzia hatua zitakazochukuliwa baada ya kufikia tarehe ya mwisho wa kupeleka taarifa hizo, Kairuki alisema jukumu lao ni kuzipokea na kukabidhi mamlaka ya uteuzi ambayo ndiyo iliagiza na ambayo ndiyo itaamua hatua za kuchukua.

Sambamba na hilo, Kairuki alisema hadi sasa jumla ya watumishi hewa 606, wameanza kuchukuliwa hatua za kisheria, ikiwemo mashauri yao kupelekwa polisi na hivi sasa Taasisi ya Kupambana na Kuzuia Rushwa (Takukuru), wanafanya uchunguzi na hatimaye watuhumiwa hao wafikishwe kwenye vyombo vya juu vya sheria.

Aidha, maofisa utumishi 233 waliohusika kwenye malipo ya mishahara hewa mashauri yao, wamefikishwa kwenye mamlaka husika kwa uchunguzi, ilhali watatu wamefukuzwa kazi, huku wizara ikiendelea kufanya uchunguzi kwenye taasisi 75 za umma ili kujiridhisha kuhusu suala la watumishi hewa.

Kuhusu waajiri 145 ambao hawajawasilisha taarifa za uhakiki wa watumishi wao, Kairuki alisema zimo taasisi, wakala, bodi, mabaraza, vyuo, hospitali, ofisi za Makatibu Tawala wa Mikoa, tume na mamlaka kadhaa ambazo hazijawasilisha taarifa zao.

Kwa upande wa mabaraza nchini, Kairuki alisema mabaraza mbalimbali 10 hayajawasilisha taarifa za uhakiki wa watumishi na baadhi yao ni kama vile Baraza la Taifa la Mazingira (NEMC), Baraza la Elimu ya Ufundi (Nacte), Baraza la Taifa la Biashara (TNBC), Baraza la Mitihani la Taifa (NECTA) na Baraza la Michezo la Taifa (BMT).

Jeshi la polisi lawaengua zaidi ya watumishi 600 wasio askari


Jeshi la Polisi limewaengua watumishi wake zaidi ya 600 wasiokuwa askari, limeripoti gazeti la NIPASHE Jumapili hii.

Uamuzi huo ni utekelezaji wa agizo walilopewa Julai 18 mwaka huu na Rais John Magufuli, la kuhakikisha kuwa wanabaki na watumishi askari katika kila eneo, lengo likiwa ni kuepuka kuchafuliwa kwa taarifa za kuwapo kwa vitendo vya rushwa na ufisadi vinavyodaiwa kufanywa zaidi na watumishi walio raia wakawaida ndani ya jeshi hilo.

Magufuli alitoa agizo hilo wakati akizungumza na Naibu Makamishna wa Polisi 25 na Makamishna Wasaidizi wa Polisi 35, Ikulu Jijini Dar es salaam mara baada ya askari hao kula kiapo cha uadilifu.

Akizungumza na Nipashe jana, Katibu Mkuu wa Wizara ya Mambo ya Ndani ya Nchi, Meja Jenerali Projest Rwegasira, alisema tayari mchakato wa kutekeleza ushauri wa Rais Magufuli kwa kubainisha majina ya watumishi hao (zaidi ya 600) na kuyawasilisha Wizara ya Utumishi kwa hatua ya kuwaondoa katika orodha ya watumishiwa Jeshi la Polisi.

Meja Jenerali Rwegasira aliongeza kuwa majina hayo ya watumishi wasio kuwa polisi ya meshawasilishwa kwa Waziri wa Nchi Ofisi ya Rais Utumishi, Angela Kairuki.

“Tayari mchakato umefanyika na zaidi ya watumishi raia wakawaida 600 tumeshapeleka majina yao Utumishi kwa ajili ya kuwaondoa kama Mheshimiwa Rais alivyoagiza,” alisema Meja Jenerali Rwegasira.

Akifafanua zaidi, Rwegasira alisema watumishi raia watakaoonekana kuwa wanapaswa kubaki ndani ya jeshi hilo kutokana na weledi wao mbalimbali, watawabakiza kwa sharti kwamba nilazima waende kuhudhuria mafunzo na kufuzu ili wawe na sifa za kuwa askari.

“Wale ambao wanafaa na kukubaliwa watapewa nafasi ya kwenda kuchukua mafunzo ya Jeshi… siyo kwamba sasa kuna watu wamepelekwa kuchukua mafunzo.

Nasema ikitokea nafasi wanaweza kupelekwa na yeyote atakayetoka kwenye mafunzo hayo atalazimika kufanyakazi kwa kufuata vyeo vya Jeshi la Polisi,” alisema.

Hivi karibuni, Jeshi la Polisi limekuwalikikumbana na taarifa mbaya za kuwapo kwa vitendo kadhaa vya rushwa na ufisadi, baadhii vikiwa ni kulipwa mamilioni ya fedha za posho maalumu wanazopata askari kwa watumishi wasio kuwa askari na pia madai ya jeshi hilo kuingizwa katika mikataba mbalimbali isiyo kuwa na maslahi kwao (polisi) nataifa.

Aidha, ni wazi kuwa uamuzi huo wa kuwaondoa watumishi wote raia ndani ya jeshi hilo utawaacha baadhi yao wakipata mshituko, wakiwamo wale waliotumikia jeshi hilo kwa muda mrefu katika fani mbalimbali zikiwamo za uhasibu, ufundi mbalimbali, udaktari wa binadamu, ufundi na wale wa Teknolojia ya Habari na Mawasiliano (TEHAMA).

“Hili ni pigo kubwa kwa baadhi ya watumishi hao raia kwa sababu sasa hatima yao itategemea maamuzi ya Wizara ya Utumishi. Sijui itakuwaje… lakini ukweli ni kwamba Rais yuko sahihi. Kuna watu wasio kuwa askari walikuwa wakijisahau na kuchafua mwenendo wa jeshi kutokana na kutanguliza zaidi maslahi yao binafsi,” chanzo kimoja kiliiambia Nipashe jana.
Alipoulizwa jana kuhusu suala hilo, Waziri Kairuki alisema ni kweli amepokea majina ya wahusika wote na hatua zaidi zinaendelea kuchukuliwa.

Aliongeza kuwa, hatua kama hiyo inachukuliwa pia katika majeshi mengine baada ya Wizara ya Ulinzi na Jeshi la kujenga Taifa kuwasilisha orodha ya watumishi raia 100 ambao wanatakiwa kuondolewa.

Tanzania to acquire 6 state-of-the-art civilian radars


“We are in the final stages to advertise tenders for the purchase of the new radars to improve aviation and air transport in the country,” he said.

Mbarawa made the remarks shortly after he had visited the Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA), the Tanzania Meteorological Agency and Zanzibar airport in the east Africa’s archipelago.

“Our zeal is to make sure that air transport is the safest in the country and attracts many tourists,” the minister said.

He appealed to TCAA to license pilots who met international qualification standards to make air transport safer and reliable.

Last month, TCAA said it planned to acquire two new civilian radars this financial year to replace the one used in Dar es Salaam and install a new one at Mwanza to enhance national surveillance capacity. Enditem

Tanzania knock South Africa out of African Youth championships

(see tweet below the story for the image source)

South Africa’s u17 men’s national team, Amajimbos have been knocked out of the African Youth championships after losing 2-0 to Tanzania in the second leg played here at Chamazi stadium in Dar es Salaam on a hot Sunday afternoon, 21 August 2016.

Going into the second leg having been held 1-1 by the Serengeti Boys at Dobsonville stadium two weeks ago, Amajimbos were always going to climb a steep mountain and were against it for most of the afternoon starting from the unbearable searing heat to the hostile crowd which cheered the home team throughout the match.

Although Tanzania were reduced to 10 men in the 45th minute having taken a 35th min lead through Mohamed Abdallah, they always looked sharp on the counter attack during an absorbing second half.

Molefi Ntseki’s side threw everything into the attack in the second half and enjoying numerical advantage, spent most of the second half camped in the hosts own half but lacked the critical cutting edge.

They were duly punished for squandering a host of chances when substitute Ibrahim Ali scored a late second goal which completely took the fighting out of the deflated visitors.

Tanzania will now meet either Congo or Namibia in the final qualifying round for a place at the AYC in Madagascar next year.

“Tanzania looked more mature than our boys and I think that is where the difference was. We must however, keep this team together to form the core of the u20 and I think apart from being beaten by Tanzania, most of these youngsters have a bright future,” said coach Molefi Ntseki.

“It is always disappointing not to qualify for a major tournament but I think the country has an abundance of talent and if kept together, we have what it takes to compete with the best.” (Source: TheSportsCampus.com)
