I will be heading to Tanzania briefly before travelling to Germany etc.
My posts will be affected by the "quake" of moving around. Whenever I get an opportunity I will visit your blogs and I will share with you whatever I will encounter on the way.

There are city millitia who always chase away illegal businessmen and women, and always they run uphazardly.
My major concern was safety for the babies there. I have a wish to help, but I do not know how...

If you are looking for this abandoned office, just take a walk rather than a car or motorcycle, as you can easily pass by without noticing it.

Post office letter boxes
Jana nilikwenda Posta kuu hapa jijini Kigali kuchukua "parcel" yangu niliyotumiwa kutoka ughaibuni (Nje ya Rwanda), wakati naelekea sehemu ambayo huwa wanatunza hiyo mizigo, nilipita kwenye masanduku binafsi ya barua.
Nilibaki nimeshangaa kwani ni ya mbao, na yote yana makufuli ya aina mbalimbali ambayo ndio hutumika kufunga au kufungua boksi lako kama unataka kuchukua barua, nafikiri kutokana uwezo wa mmiliki, anachagua aina ya kufuli la kuweka. Mengine kwa kweli yalikuwa makubwa kuliko kijisanduku chenyewe.

Utafiti huo umebaini pia kwamba utofauti huo wa harufu una kinga nzuri ya kiafya kwa watoto wanaowazaa. Lakini haijaweza kubainika ni kwa namna gani.
Swali: Watu wenye vikwapa, miguu inayopunga hewa nk. ni kweli hupata akina dada watanashati wenye harufu murua? and vice versa!!

It stabilizes your waking brain, makes you more alert, and allows you to process information faster
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Survey done in United States revealed that average nightly sleep time during the workweek is down nearly 20 minutes in the last decade, to six hours and 40 minutes. And men ages 30 to 44 are the worst offenders: Thirty percent of them say they log less than six hours of sleep at night. (For me, I think this is almost everywhere in the world)
Cheating on sleep, you're limping through life with the cranial equivalent of a torn calf muscle. Scarier still, people who are sleep-deprived often don't even know they've turned into zombies
Accumulating a sleep deficit also leads to "microsleeps" while you're awake. "Your brain becomes unstable and will go 'off-line' for half a second. The more sleep-deprived you are, the more frequent and longer the lapses.
Frequently needing to pee in the middle of the night might indicate a health problem
That first stumble to the bathroom in the dark can be chalked up to the beer you drank. The second one can spell trouble. "If you habitually take two or more bathroom trips a night, you probably have obstructive sleep apnea, where the soft tissue at the back of your throat blocks your upper airway during sleep(Sometimes make you snoring if not roaring at night), stopping your breathing for anywhere from 10 seconds to a minute or even longer. This can occur hundreds of times in a night, depriving you of restorative deep sleep and starving your vital organs of oxygen. No wonder sleep apnea has been linked to heart disease, hypertension, and mood disorders.
But why does it wake you up to pee?
Because those mini-suffocations result in lower circulating oxygen levels, your heart pumps harder, raising your blood pressure. As excess fluid builds up in your veins, a feedback loop triggers the release of a pressure-relieving diuretic, making you need to pee.
An enlarged prostate and high blood sugar can also prompt middle-of-the-night bowl breaks.
But with those conditions, you'll pee a lot day and night.
A post lunch crash is a telltale sign of poor nighttime sleep, as is dozing in meetings, theater performances, or similar environments. But again watch if you take too much carbohydrate in the morning you may end up with.

Gissela Marrero at the centre in black. Last month she was given a grant by a New York court to harvest sperms from her fiance who died due heart disease. She had one child with her fiance, and they were planning to have the second. But infortunately he died before they succeeded.
The family of her fiance gave her a full support on this matter, and decision to gave her rights of harvest was concluded just 4 hours before the recomended time for viable harvesting which was stated to be 72 hours after death. Clich here to read more.
But, the sad news came later, it was said that the amount of harvested semen was not sufficient for artificial insemination, therefore she cannot have the second child from her dead fiance.
In 2005, there was a similar case by which a woman in Australia won a 7 year court battle allowing her to use her dead husband's sperm in order to get pregnant. He was killed in a car crash and she originally won a court order to extract his sperm the day after he was killed.
The question rose at that time was it ethical? Is it right to take sperm from a dead man without his consent?

In Rwanda is different, it simply involves around 5 cars, and there are no unnecessary road blocks like that one done in Bongo where you can be blocked for more than 30 minutes.
Last Sunday while I was enjoying the walk on the beautiful sun, I met the presidential motorcade at a speed of around 40km/hr, to my surprise I saw the president himself behind the wheel! (Self-driving). This justifies how safe Rwanda is by now.
I will be glad to see Kibaki, Museveni and JK doing the same.

The 27-year-old pregnant Lebanese woman Sunday was found guilty of causing the death of the child last year by driving recklessly and initiating a car crash that severed the fetus's umbilical cord only days before she was scheduled to deliver the child via Caesarean section.

Reaction to swine flu has taken different waves in different countries.
Official reports says that the situation is easing as incidences are going down, but schools are still closed.
For those with any type of flu especially if you arrive from Mexico, you are guaranteed an Intense quarantine in special hotels, If you carry a Mexican passport you are likely to be quarantined whether you are coming from Mexico or not.
Indonesian Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari thinks that this is a man made spread to boost pharmaceutical industries as they wonder why pig are not affected as compared to human beings
Egyptian government has ordered massive pigs culling which are about 300,000, the whole exercise is expected to be over after 1 month. They met a stiff resistance from pig breeders. The breeders argue logically that it is impossible for pigs to come from Mexico to Egypt to infect their pigs, and it will be crazy an infected person to go to the pig to infect them. After all there is no any case of pig or human being has been reported in Egypt
Warns that strong measures have to be in place, easing of incidence cannot be taken into grant that the saga has just ended. And slaughtering of pigs will not change the current situation.
