Uvutaji sigara, ni sababu kubwa ya vifo vinavyozuilika nchini Marekani. Kwa mujibu wa takwimu zilizotolewa na Kituo cha Kudhibiti Maradhi nchini Marekani (CDC) kifo kimoja kati ya vitano nchini Marekani hutokana na athari za uvutaji sigara, na zaidi ya watu milioni 43.8 nchini humo ni wavutaji wa sigara.
Lakini vita dhidi ya uvutaji huo vimekuwa vikipamba moto, na teknolojia imekuwa ikishirikishwa katika vita hivyo. Na ni vita hivyohivyo dhidi ya uvutaji vinavyoanza kutiliwa mashaka nchini humo.

Makubwa! Senator Ted Cruza ametukana waNigeria! Alisema kuwa wale matapeli wa Nigeria wamehamia kwenye simu za maofisi ya Obamacare! Ni kweli kuna waNigeria matapeli na wameharibu sifa la Nigeria, lakini ukweli wengi ni watu wazuri na ni wasomi. Leo hata Balozi wa Nigeria nchini Marekani amesema lazima Cruz aombe msamaha. Ajabu Texas anapotoka huyo Sen. Cruz ndo kuna waNigeria wengi kuliko sehemu zingine Marekani.
Huyo Senator Cruz ni moja wa wale wahuni wa Tea Party walifanya serikali ya Marekani ifungwa kwa wiki mbili wakitaka Obamacare ifutwe. Wabaguzi wakubwa!

KUTOKA HUFFINGTON POST:
Ambassador Ade Adefuye told Politico that Nigerians are “disappointed and shocked” by the remarks, adding that Cruz "should not denigrate Nigerians in order to appease these domestic constituents.” The ambassador the statement "was a joke that went too far, and we demand an apology.”
The Houston Chronicle reported on Monday that, before a crowd of tea party supporters, Cruz knocked the new health care system: “You may have noticed that all the Nigerian email scammers have become a lot less active lately. They all have been hired to run the Obamacare website.”
A spokeswoman for Cruz told Politico the remarks were made jokingly and were not intended to offend Nigerians.
Cruz has been a leading figure in the Republican effort to block the implementation of the new health care law.
The Daily Nation newspaper said Rose Oyungu, 54, stole a gold watch and mobile telephone from the dead nephew of Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta, as well as gold jewellery from the man's fiancée.
Both of the victims died on the first day of last month's attack on the upmarket mall by Al-Qaeda-linked gunmen, which in total left at least 67 people dead.
"It is unfortunate that an African can steal from the dead," prosecutor Wycliffe Sifuna was quoted as telling a bail hearing in court on Thursday.
Defence lawyers managed to secure bail for the accused, a widowed mother-of-six. The case is due to go to trial on November 25.
The accusations against the woman come as Kenyan security forces are also facing allegations that troops looted the mall during and after the four-day siege.
Kenyan media reported widely on the ransacking of the shopping centre, and security camera footage from the mall broadcast at the weekend showed soldiers carrying white plastic bags.
Shop owners -- including a top end jewellery store as well as others selling mobile telephones, watches, cameras, expensive suits and lingerie -- said their stores were completely looted.
On Tuesday the army chief said some goods were taken for safekeeping, and police responded to the media accusations by summoning two journalists for questioning -- although the summons was withdrawn following an outcry.

.UN calls on fastest reduction of poverty to meet the MDGs
By MOblog Team
UNITED Nations (UN) members states has been told to take on board issues of youth in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) as part of the global community efforts to fight against organized crimes such as terrorism and drug trafficking. Moblog can report.
Speaking to invited dignitaries during the commemoration of the 68th anniversary of the United Nations in Dar es Salam at Karimjee grounds, the Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism Hon, Ambassador Khamis Kagasheki said although the MDGs is all about development but unfortunately the inclusion of youth is conspicuously absent in the eight goals.
Brazilian Ambassador to Tanzania, Francisco Luz with Tanzanian Official from Foreign Affairs.
He said that according to the 2012 Population and Housing Census (PHC), the proportion of persons aged 15-35 years has decreased marginally from 35.6 percent in 2002 to 34.7 percent in 2012. The median age of the Tanzania’s population is 18 years.
Ambassador Kagasheki added that Tanzania like many other African countries suffers from youth unemployment rate of 13.4 percent. Youth employees aged between 15 and 24 years comprise only 2.5 percent of total employees in the formal sector showing the low involvement of youths in the formal sector.
“These challenges affect all segments of the population. But young people are the most affected. We are witnessing an increased trend of the youth falling victims of joining terrorists groups, drug cartels and organized crimes which is not healthy to global community welfare,”

“Agricultural sector which is the main stay of most Tanzanians employs 81.4 percent. 24 percent of youths aged 15-24 years are employed in manufacturing industry followed by wholesale and retail trade comprising 17.6 percent of total youths in the formal sector. Another important industry in employing youths in Tanzania is the education sector with 15.2 percent of all youths in this sector,’ he said.
He further said that major challenges facing the youth today are lack of access to capital, negative impact of the electronic media and social networks and competitiveness in education. These are current challenges apart from the traditional ones which are drug abuse, crime, violence, sexuality and poverty.
On his part UN Resident Coordinator Alberic Kacou said that globally, this year's UN Day focuses on the eight UN Millennium Development Goals and the global partnership to achieve those goals.

“In Tanzania we have chosen “The Future We Want” as the week’s theme, focusing more towards the Post 2015 Development Agenda and the role of Youth,”
“As we seek to identify the parameters of the post-2015 development agenda, the magnitude of the task before us will require decisive action and the highest levels of collaboration and we must prove our efforts to be equal to the enormity of the task,” he said
He further said that at the request of the President of the World Bank, members of the UN System Chief Executives Board (CEB) agreed unanimously in November 2012 to use its semi-annual meetings to review and improve their support to MDG progress in countries ahead of the 2015 target date. Tanzania was among the countries selected for the first review.
Kacou underscored that many nations have achieved what could have been considered a dream in 2000 – cutting in half the number of people living in extreme poverty.
Similarly, some progress is made on eliminating gender disparities in school, expanding access to safe drinking water, and improving living conditions for slum dwellers BUT progress on health, sanitation, and primary school completion is still at risk. He lamented.

Kacou said the global conversation initiated by the UN engaged more than 1.3 million people in above 180 UN Member States from August 2012 to March 2013.

Wadau, nafurahi kuwatangazia kuwa mwananagu, Elechi Kadete, ameamua kufuata nyayo za Babu yake, Dr. Aleck Che-Mponda, na kuingia katika dunia ya siasa. Anagombea kiti katika Baraza la Maashule (School Committee) katika mji wa Cambridge, Massachusetts. Akifanikiwa baadaye itakuwa rahisi kugombea nafasi katika City Council na kwenye ngazi za State. Kutokana na katiba ya Marekani hataweza kugombea Urais kwa vile hakuzaliwa Marekani. Alizaliwa Tanzania. Lakini ataweza kugombea nafasi zingine kama Congress, Senator na Gavana.
Baba mzazi wa Elechi, ni marehemu Prof. Henry Kadete aliyekuwa kuwa Mkuu wa Idara ya Uhandisi Umeme Chuo Kikuu cha Dar es Salaam. Alifariki mwaka 1995. Kwao Prof. Kadete ni Tabora.
Kwa kweli naona watu Cambridge wanamchangamkia, Tunaomba maombi na dua zenu Ashinde!
Kwa habari zaidi za kampeni ya Elechi:
Wadau, kampeni ni ghali, mabango, literature, simu, huduma kwa ajili ya wasaidizi zina gharama.
